THE BCV LOPEZ
Home weeks ago Mr. II. li. Hammond,
Wymore, expre?d the belief, "I am
sure there is not a player io the world
who can say why the move (3. B-Kt 5) is
made whaV it itaatly .does.' . In this
Mr. Hammond has the support of Rev.
H li. Cunnicgton, the author of several
books on chess, who ays that White's
third move is -a very god move but dif
ficult to explain." However, Mr. Lee
Edward, of Dunlap, Iowa, a student of
che has thii to say for the benefit of
Iine Independent readers:
z.ttii , The original idea of the Ruy Lopez
4 m m m as to continue the attack on the KP.
This proved unratl-factory, for Black
could solely let White capture the pawn.

So the Ruy Lopez in the early years
of this century was in disfavor. The Gi
uoco Piana at that time had the prefer
ence, but later the defense was strength
ened and, in one of the leading varia
tion, even had slightly the better po
sition. H. BBl B-B4

Here White"-? best move seemed to be
7! B QKt5: hence, the conclusion that
the time might be saved by playing B
Kt'i on the third move.
In time 3. B-Kt 5 came to be consider
ed a- sound. After considerable exper
iment 3 Kt KB3 has come to be con
feidered as Black's best defense. The
flrt player obtains a good development
with a varied choice of styles of play.
He may be agressive with P-Qf, either
before or after castlin?, or he may con
tinue a la fiiuoco Piana with P-Q3 fol

WHO WAS IT?
It was on Mavdi Gras evening in New
Orleans. Davis saloons were crowded,
and Sterlain. the roulette bank keeper,
was in jubilant spirits. He even cracked
jokes, for the roulette was winning
So absorbing was it that the small fry
gamesters abstained from risking their
petty dollars aii goldpieees and gazed
with a sort of awe at the heavy pile of
bank notes that accumulated in front of
the croupier, as a rich harvest under the
reaper's sickle. The excitement was at
its height when, just as midnight struck
on the bell of the neighboring cathedral,
there stood side by side with those mag
nates of the roulette table, without any
body having noticed how he came, a gen
tleman apparently 25 years of age. It
was such an apparition as could not but
compel instant attention. He was of
middle height, fragile and spare of body;
and elegantly proportioned in form.
His features were almost feminine and
of classic beauty, and yet, at the very
first glance, there could be detected in
them an undefinable expression which
gave warning that under this mask of
softness there lurked something to bo
guarded against hard iron or sharp steel
within an envelope of velvet or silk. In
tensely black were his hair, the beard on
his upper lip and his lustrous eyes. Black
was his whole dress from head to foot,
its neatness evidencing the unmistakable
cut of the fashionable artist. Black also
were his closely fitting gloves. His coat,
of the finest cloth, was buttoned up to
his chin and showed to advantage his
statuesque bust. Altogether there could
not have stood in any princely hall a
more aristocratic looking personage. A
poet would have called him the god of
This stranger for nobody present
knew him seemed o abstract himself
completely from his surroundings and
for awhile looked intently at the gaming
board, as if he meant to impregnate it
with the magnetizing fluid of his will.
Then, suddenly addressing Sterlain, in
front of whom he had stationed himself,
"Sir," he said in Spanish, with a courte
ous bow and a musical but somewhat me
tallic voice, "are" the stakes limited?"
"No," briefly answered the surprised
The unknown deliberately took off his
right glove, showing a hand which a wo
man might have envied, with long nails,
exquisitely shaped and pearly in color.
With it he drew out an apparently well
filled pocketbook of black morocco, orna
mented with gold clasps. He extracted
from it a few bank notes, which he laid
on the table, saying calmlv:
"My deal is for $10,000."
An electric shock seemed to have struck
the bystanders, and a thrill shot through
every one's heart that almost stopped its
The wheel turned. The bank lost.
"Take your plunder," shouted Sterlain
with an oath.
"No. Let it stand. I go the whole."
The ball was again set in motion, and
again fortune favored the Spaniard, who
by this time had become the only player,
all the rest gazing with absorbing inter
est at the terrible duel which had evi
dently begun between the two adversa
ries. Unused to such bad luck and to
such crushing loss, Sterlain appeared be
side himself and, growling like an angry
mastiff, jumped uj '
"Sxcuse me, gentlemen," he said, T
am out of funds and must apply to Mr.
Davis to replenish my bank."
A few minutes elapsed, during which
the spectators remained clustered togeth
er in prof ound " silence and staring at the
lucky gambler,--who, meanwhile, without
taking the slightest notice of the sur
rounding crowd, kept his eyes steadily
fixed on the roulette as if buried in the
Sterlain' returned with his hands full.
"Why have you not j-emoved your trash
and cleaned the board?" he said gruffly
to the stranger.
"Because," replied he, "I choose to
leave it where it is and stake the whole."
Sterlain turned very pale and breathed
heavily, as if something pressed against
his chest. Again the ivory ball of fate
twirled in the bowl. Again it stopped.
The bank had lost. Up started Sterlain,
frenzied with rage, to get another supply
of those ample funds which Davis and
his associates always kept in reserve. On
his coming back Sterlain was so demoral
ized that all he could say to his adversa
ry, on whom he cast a bewildered look,
was, in a tone of frightened interroga
tion, "Well, what next?"
"I stake all I have on the board," was
the short reply.
Round and round went the roulette,
and for the fourth time the mysterious
stranger won'. The total gain was enor
mous. "The bank is completely broken and
closes for tonight," Sterlain announced
with emotion, rendered almost inarticu
late, and, vaulting over the table, he
rushed upon the Spaniard, brandished his
closed fists and exclaimed :
"In the foul Jfiend's t name, what have
you eaten today?" '
The stranger had, retreated a few steps
at the threatened assault and stood still,
waiting for a closer approach. With a
diabolical, sardonicsmile on his lips, with
a look which froze the blood of the spec
tators and made Sterlain reel back as if
a stiletto had struck him full in the
breast, the Spaniard, with perfect com
posure, answered in his rich native lan
guage. "If you are, amigo moi, interested
in "knowing whit1"! have eaten today, I
have no objection to telling you that it is
The reader may laugh at this ridiculous
finale, but we were assured by one of the
spectators than none of them was so dis
posed at the time, so tragic was the in
tonation with which the stranger pro
nounced in Spanish the word chocolate.
It never was known who this man was.
When he retired,be was followed by
many who wished to gratify their curi
osity on that point.
But on reaching the street he jumped
into a carriage which seemed to have
been improvised for the occasion and
drove furiously away. That was the last
seen of bim in New Orleans. The prince
of darkness was never better personated.
Was he Mephistopheles? American

Hans Alienus lived in a humble cottage
a Jerusalem. One evening he stood long
before the open window shutter. How
difficult it was to get at closing it! The
air was cool, the city sull. Below in the
narrow, hilly street came a muleteer
astride, stooping forward over tire back
of the ass, whose little hoofs clicked and
slipped on the big, smooth stones. He
sang a monotonous song in the customary
plaintive drawling, nasal tones of the
easterner, and as he passed along the
sound of his voice reminded one of the
On the window sill lay a manuscript
dissertation, and so clear and brilliant
was the February moonlight that Hans
conld read the fine writing without dif
ficulty. It was a defense of the establish
ed order of things, of standstill conserva
tism, admitting-of no exception. And
as he stood there in the city where the
idea of human brotherhood was born and
had gone forth over the earth, as he
glanced over the pages of the" document,
he said to himself: "No, no; we young
people are natural foes to conservatism.
We are tbe ones who now, in all ages,
ha.ve broken ground for the truths which
have proceeded from this city." As he
spoke he made an unconscious movement
with his hand. At the same time his
glance fell upon his own shadow on the
wall, outlined by the moon.
He could not restrain his laughter.
Was not that the shadow of an actor, the
head thrown back, the hand extended as
if he were declaiming some stirring
A feeling of shame swept over him as
he considered for the first time that,
amoug the ideas transmitted from that
city to the western world as a cargo of
precious jewels, was a tiny pearl, hu
manity. He closed his eyes and pressed his
hands over his face, and a thousand little
stars seemed to flash before his sight.
To be sure, it was merely the pulsations
of hfcf'own bfcod which produced this
sensawon. and yet, little by little, those
tiny lights ceased to ravolve and looked
for all the world like the pale stars which
he had just been watching in the firma
ment. At length, aroused by voices iu
the street, he looked out.
Between the houses opposite there ex
tended a wall." On the ground in front
was a bright fire, and by that fire stood
Christ surrounded by a few disciples and
frieno.s. Just behind him his shadow
was clearly defined upon the wall.
John,-the disciple whom he loved, me
chanically picked up a blackened coal
and with it outlined the shadow until he
had delineated the entire figure of the
Master upon the wall. Then he dropped
the coal and entered into conversation
with the rest.
Next morning, when Hans Alienus
again stood at his open window and saw
the people pass, there were many who
stopped and looked with curiosity at the
drawing on the wall.
"That represents a shoemaker: his
back is bowed," said the shoemaker.
"You talk nonsense," returned the
fruiterer: "that stooping posture proves
that he is a f ruit vender. . They forgot to
draw the basket on his back, but that
half open mouth shows clearly that he
was crying: 'Pomegranates! Come and
buy! Come and buyT "
A high official of the aanhedrin who
passed, and who of course did not mix
his voice with the gabble of the trades
people, thought to himself: "It is perfect
ly plain that that represents a learned
man and a thinker. One might almost
take it to be a portrait of me. Positively
It is me: not bad, either. Probably some
of the tradespeople drew it. Of course
they all know me more or less."
Meanwhile one of the spectators had
silently approached the carbon drawing.
He had a simple demeanor and a kind,
patient face. Nothing great was known
of him, no chronicle has preserved his
name, for h led a retired life, away
from the noise of the world. With hauds
crossed over the knob of his walking
stick he contemplated the drawing.
"What a noble forehead!" he thought.
"What lofty humanity that bent figure
suggests! Oh. if only one could be like
that! But why wish for the impossi
ble!" As he stood there, silent and humble,
the likeness to the drawing was so strik
ing that everybody fell back, pointing to
him in whispers.
Startled and ashamed he slipped away,
unable to understand ,why they should
stare at him.
In his conscious humility he had re
sembled the Christ shadow.
Had he known this, and. proud in that
consciousness, stood erect, the likeness
would have vanished. St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
Frwnklln o Orator.
It was Poor Richard who remarked,
"Here comes the orator, with his flood of
words and his drop of reason," and dur
ing his whole life Franklin was no
speechmaker. "I served," Jefferson said,
"with General Washington in the legis
lature of Virginia before the Revolution
and during it with Dr.-Franklin in con-:
gress. I never heard either of them
speak ten minutes at a time nor to any
but the main point which was to decide
the question. They laid their shoulders
to the great points, knowing that the lit
tle ones would follow themselves."
John Adams, in one of his periodic out
bursts against the man whom the public
deemed greater than himself, contrasted
his own services in congress, in which he
claimed to have been "active and alert in
every branch of business, both in the
house and on committees, constantly pro
posing measures, supporting those I ap
proved when moved by others, opposing
such as I disapproved, discussing and ar
guing on every question," with those of
Franklin, who was seen, he says, "from
day to day, sitting in silence, a great part
of his time fast asleep in his chair."
Yet Franklin was appointed on every
important committee and Adams on few.
and the sage, could he have read his
brother congressman's comparison, might
fairly have retorted, with the wisdom of
Poor Richard. "He that speaks much is
much mistaken," or "The worst wheel of
the cart makes the most noise." Paul L.
Ford in Century.
To Core a Double Chin.
It has been discovered that a double
chin can be cured by correct breathing.
The short necked woman must hold her
head high, even craning her neck till she
is conscious of the tension of the cords.
She should also practice relaxing the
muscles of the neck and dropping the
head and then moving it round in a cir

poise and will exercise the muscles and
help to - rid them of superfluous fat.
