Barry. Feeling that Bro. Walcott
might be overstocked with such books,
etc. as I have bee a awarding; our prise

cbooae something tor the April prise
he had won. Now, what do you sup

A little gold bar pin sort of a safety

Walcott. He then added. "Walt home
with it and present it to Master John
Ridpath De France, with the compli

Bro. Walcott; and "the missus" joins
me in thanking you heartily.

Brookhaven, Miss., - brings me the in
formation that MY. Martin D. McGrath,
of that city, and well known to Ne
braska players by correspondence, has
again won the state championship and
presidency of the Mississippi chess as-,

and two draws, is certainly one to be
proud of. Mr. B. L. Reece of Yazoo
City was a close second with a score
of 18 to 3; and former champion, Al

The tournament was held at Meridian;

well to remain incog. He bids fair to

of the Pittsburg Dispatch writes mo as
follows: "Hearty thanks for article

to its author, there is contained a mis

Napier evidently has views regard
ing beans a? an article of human food,
and concerning the debilitating effects
of the synthetic method of chessplay.
I couldn't give expert testimony on
either subject. It seems to be up to
Young and Burille (and the author of
my crltlcues, who may have been mis
informed) to, say whether they ever
taught the boy, Harry, how to hulld
up a primary base that would end in
knocking the eternal stuffing out of
the other fellow's intrenchments I
cannot believe thnt Pillsbury is "posi

eral moves in the Spanish game exact
ly as they were played back in the 16th
century by the Archbishop of Syra

of Ruy Lopez to a sllghj extent. Of
course, Napier doubtless means that
Young and Burille dfd not give Pills
bury a regular course of Instruction;
and that nobody else did.
I am not wedded to any system of
chessplay because I can't play welj
enough to know what Is good, better,

PORTO RICAN IMPORTS. :
v;at4 states Mmr 0t tfe Bet Cot
fee Xow Tksi Tart tm Otf, ,
The question of Porto Itican imports
is now interesting custom house offi
cers. Tobacco, cigars, cigarettes and
rum, the standard exports of the is
land, will be the chief imports subject
to the internal revenue tax, says the
New York Evening Sun. The custom
officers are wondering what other arti
cles subject to the internal revenue tax
es will be Imported. : ,
Porto Itican rum is somewhat of an
unknown " commodity : among. local
drinkers. Little of it has found its way
here, and how much the taking off of
the tariff will affect its Importation is'a
Question. According to a well known
liquor dealer, the rum does not differ
materially from Santa Crux rum and
could be substituted for the latter in
the making of punches and . summer
drinks. With no tariff on It, it can be
bought much ' more . cheaply than San
ta Cruz rum. The internal revenue tax
on rum must be paid after the product
arrives here. ..v'i-."'-' v "-f -:.-'
How far the removal of the tariff will
deflect the exported Porto Itican coffee
to American ports is an interesting
problem. In Torto Rico Is grown the
finest coffee in the world. Scarcely . a
pound of the product comes to the Unit
ed States, most of it being shipped to
''Austria and sold in Vienna.. Such of
the product as is not sold in Austria is
snapped up in Paris and St. Petersburg.
The coffee is the highest priced of all
coffees. A man who is versed in coffee
lore said In speaking of the prospects
of' considerable shipments of Porto Iti
can coffee here that now that the tariff
had been lifted he thought such ship
ments were probable, but that even
without a tariff we would have to pay
more for the product than for Java and
Mocha coffees. -
The deputy collector of the port ol
New York, when asked what - he
thought would be imported from' Porto
Rico,' replied: : . ":' . ;
"I think that for some time tobacco,
cigars and cigarettes will be the chief
Imports, with the possible exception of
sugar. . I'm not so sure about coffee.
Porto Rlcan coffee growers have a fine
European market for their crop, and
time and experience can only deter
mine whether they will decide to find a
new market in our ports. So far as we
know only tobacco and its products
and liquors will be subject to the Inter
nal revenue tax. Whenever articles
subject to this tax arrive we shall sim
ply hold them until the internal reve
nue agents have collected the tax. I
am told that they make a very good
quality of hats in Porto Rico, and may
be we will get some of them.":
