A BOGUS COUNT. Failed to Get His History (he Pharos. Printed in it didn't, man; you Was Told Tnat Space Was Too Valuable to be Wttsted on Such Rol^ Wednesday afternoon, when the city editor ot the Pharos was the busiest, a well dressed young man entered the office, and with a great Hourlsh, presented a card which bore the following Inscription: "Stanley, Count de Louzo, Duke de Cheverette-Culigny., Baron Chateau-Renaud, Marquis Vaillancourt- 'Eperoay Villefrar.cr.Le. Viscount Pierre-Armand St. Stephen of Castle Dunbar, Chevalier de Launay, Major of tne Imperial Lancers, ex-Secretary to His Majesty King Ferdinand of Bulgaria. Touring the coannent in advance of James A,. Heroe'.s 'The Hearthstone.'" "What's your other name? Don't you know you sau'n get. anything on that in this country?" were questions put to his jab lots In quick succession. "That is the real thing," replied the fellow. "Well, you'll have to show me something besides this," declared the Pharos man. "All right," and with this His Impudence drew a book trom his inside pocket and spread out a. lot of newspaper clippings descriptive ot "Count de Loazio" and his romantic career; how he of noble blood and possessed of vast estates in Bulgaria bitd been banished from bis native lauds, for having killed, in a duel, a klnfiman of the king. This he thought would simply paralyze the editor, but "I admire your nerve, old have enough of it for any kind of use in this or any other country—take the money," declared the scribe. "It's not money 1 want," broke forth His Couotlets, "butthe privilege of writing a few lines for your paper." 1 About yourself?" "Yes." "All right; but make it short." The presumptious sitranger then seated himself at a desk and a half hour later handed over six pages of losely written manuscript, setting forth his history: how be met James A. Herne, the celebrated playwright, and having declared his intention of touring the continent for pleasure, consented to represeiat "The Hearthstone" at the Inslgnl Scant salary of $150 "per" week. The last page contained the announcement ot his, willingness to marry aa American girl with a few million. "You don't expect me to handle that batch of rot, do you?" inquired the editor with muoh emphasis on the "rot." •'I don't see why; otuer papers use it." "Well, here's one that will not, and you can wager yonr life on it, Mr. Count; our space is too valuable." "Well, do what you can for me, and here's a couple of extras. Good day." The "extras" were tiro complimentary tickets, and upon isxamlnlng one of them the following was seen to stand out in bold relief: "H. Stanley wis, representative in advance," It struck the editor that that was the fellow's name, and a suspicion from the start that he was a fraud was confirmed yesterday when Harry Hardy, an old friend, came to the city in advance ot "Shore Acres." lardy was boiling ovcir with indignation at the misrepresentations ot the bogus Count. "Mr. Herne never daw the duffer," declared Mr. Hardy, "and what's more he has no interest in 'Toe learthstone.'" Van Officers Elated. Walton Post No. 1CI3, K O. T.

A* o»iy rills tt MX* with U<w4'« Pills League Kales Compelling Clubs to Explain the Peculiarities of Their Style of Play—Intricacies Wliicli Slay Injure thw Popularity of th« Game. One of the first things I learned in regard to match play at duplicate whist was tiiis—the game isn't over until the last card is played. It is not necessary that the score should bo very close. I Jbavu coins into the homestretch with only a single frame of four deals to play, a bunch of tricks behind, and still, by dint of good luck, have contrived to pull the match out of chc fire. Every match player has had an experience of the same sort The result oj many an important contest of 34, or even of 48, deals would have boenj changed if there bad been a few wore! deals M> play. One of the most rcwarkabla instances of the Garrison finish on record in league games occurred OD Saturday, 1 Jan. 15, in the match between the Baltimore nod Part club teams for the league challenge trophy. Up to the forty-third deal Baltimore was three tricks aheadj, with sis deals to play. On deal 43 Park gained four tricks, and on deal 44 flvq, which, with another gain of one on deal 47, gave Park the match and cup by a margin of seven. This was a case of bunching hits with a vengeance. It was nop sheer luck, either, since the Baltimoreacp apparently went to pieces. Tho record of the £lay shows that they played very badly on deals 43 and 44. ; In the match just previous to this the Baltimoreans had had an easy thing in th» team of the Boston Duplicate Whist club. At the end of the thirty-sixth deal Baltimore was barely a single trick ahead. O» deals 37 to 40, however, it gained seven. This .reverse took the ginger out of ths Bostonians, and on the last hitoh of eight deals they parted with eight more trioks, losing the match by 16. I mention these circumstances merely as an introduction to a little story. It is pretty well understood by all expert whisters that the Baltimore game is as full of conventionalities as an egg is full of moat. Still, the Bostonians were not sure they know all the ins and outs of their adversaries' system, and eo before the gamo they determined to ask che Baltimore captain, as they had a right to do under the league rules, to explain the peculiarities of his game. Captain Whelan, however, took the initiative and lirst requested Captain Baker of the Boston team to unbosom himself. Captain Baker delegated this privilege to Frank Smith, iiud for 35 or 20 minutes Smith xinbosomed himself of all the Boston game he knew and perhaps more too. "And now," said Buker, "will Mr. Whelun toll about the system of his team?" "Oh," returned Whelan, "we uluy a pretty simple and straightforward long suit game, and I hardly know what to say about it, but if you will put uny questions you may think of we will answer them." There was a pause in the proceedings. I can imagine the twinkle in Frank Smith's eye as ho &;;*Hfto himself: "What a lino thing it is tobavo a lawyer on one's team!" Cfiptain Whelan is a lawyer, and a shrewd one, too, as well as one of the shrewdest whisters in the country. But he is also a fair minded sportsman, and I need scarcely add that when the Bostoniansquestioned him he frankly and explicitly answered all their queries and volunteered some information besides. And what was the pretty simple and straightforward long suit game that he described? Let us see. Iraprimis—the rotary discard. In secundis—tho discard of a 2, 3, 4 or 5 to signify willingness to ruff; anything higher, no desire to be forced. Et cetera—queen, 9 and 8 as calling cards. Also the three trump echo with certain modifications, which I have forgotten. Also a few other wrinkles that I do not remember. For the rest, the long sxiit game, except so far as affected by tenace suits, supporting cards, trump strength, and so forth. Ye shades o£ Hoylo and Mathews and Clay and tbou impending shade of Cavendish, where arc we at! Is this a pretty simple and straightforward game? I'm not kicking. Oh, no! So long as there's no law againgt it, let them play any old thing they like. I don't know that the Bostonians were much better. It ie not an individual matter, this. It is a maiiter that concerns every lover of whist. Shall this intricate conventionalism go on indefinitely? Milton Work says "the Baltimore system is in the maia conventional and! in all points sound." Milton Work ought to know, if it were not that his ideas of soundness at whist have varied during the past five years, through an arc of 180 degrees. For my own part, I don't believe that any system which is in the main conventional can be in all points sound. To get conventionality one is very apt to sacrifice soundness, and that is just what the up to date conventionalist: is doing, as sure as two and two make four, and not 19. There's another thing. Isn't it absurd to see two teams, engaged in a competitive sport, sit down for an hour before a championship match and explain to each other ibe theory and practice of their respective games? Imagine two football teams doing ;be same thing! There is something wrong somewhere. Either the two teams ought to be allowed to go in and make whatever plays Chey like, regardless of the other fel- ows' feelings, or else the plays they may us<i ought to Delimited and to a degree de- 'Bd by legislation. It is the latter course that tboy have pursued in football. They were compelled to. Teams resorted to tac- ;ics that bade fair to ruin the sport, and they legislated to stop such abuses. I shrink from the thought that similar restrictive measures must bo adopted for the preservation of "the gentlemen's game," jut events seem to tend that way. A year ago I stood for the utmost liberty in whist practice and opposed any proposition to iefine what should be legitimate system. The developments and experience of the present season, however, with this rotary discard and Street attachment and trump shewing business, have simply disgusted mf;against conventionalism. How it is all coming oat I have DO dea, and exactly what remedies to apply I cannot venture just yet to suggest, trat this I know—that when a system shows symptoms of rotary discard and calling cards and minor complications, it must be sick enough to demand treatinent and drastic treatment too. Just for a starter we might give the patient a purgative and BO get him ready for a surgical operation. B. C. Howiu, New Furniture Stare. Or. Market, 5th and Erie Sta.
