The Great Morphy. "The following superb specimen of blindfold simultaneous play was contested at Paris in the winter of 1858 as one of eight parties contested by Paul Morphy against the strongest aggregation of players the Cafe de la Regence could furnish. We have no hesitation in saying that, considering the strength of Morphy's antagonists and especially that of Mr. Baucher, who was really really of almost master strength, we consider it the most wonderful blindfold game ever produced -The Times-Democrat.

Modern Chess. The New York Times, in an editorial, says that the games of recent tournaments remind one of the “strife of the two paupers for a shilling,"

"The modern game, Mr. Steinitz observes, consists in the accumulation of small advantages.' Exactly. That is to say, each player strives to get a Pawn the better of the other, to keep the Pawn to the ending, and then to win with it.

"And yet those curious creatures, the performers, think the public ought to take an interest in this performance.

The fact that the more these games are played, the less interest can any rational being take in the game, unless he be condemned, like the contestants, to play it for his living. It is no longer a game at all. It is a 'cut-throat competition.' There is really no interest in it except to competitors, and their interest is not sportsmanlike, but commercial. There is often, in a whole tournament, not one of the brilliant finishes which the student can find in almost every recorded game of the old players who played Chess for amusement and not for a living, as Philidor and Labourdonnais, and MacDonnell and Morphy and Anderssen. The usual thing is the accumulation of small advantages' and the final winning by the accumulation on account of the inability of the other man to stop the progress of the odd Pawn. It is two paupers fighting for a shilling.'

"In other words that has happened Chess which happens to every sport when it becomes professional. It is no longer a game, but a business. “I never was, am not, I will never be a professional player,' wrote Paul Morphy. And that is partly why, as a recent commentator has said, there are more brilliant endings in Morphy's games than in all the rest of Chess put together."

Some time ago Sewell, of New Jersey, denounced Senator Pettigrew as a traitor in connection with his Philippine speeches. The other day Mr. Pettigrew had his revenge. He was reading some extracts from addresses which he wished to have printed in the “Record.” The sentiments sounded treasonyards wide and outside of this a few more furrows plowed. The space lying between able, and at last Mr. Sewell jumped up. This thing has gone far enough. He objected to such stuff being printed at the expense of the government. Pettigrew's eye gleamed as he informed the Senate that the extracts, every one, were taken from the works of Washington, Jefferson and Lincoln.

A lavish expenditure of money in all the appointments of the Cafe and Grill Room, and the most prompt and efficient service, together with reasonable charges, should commend this institution to the people of this city and vicinity.

His Best Production. A grave, scholarly looking man was much attracted by a petite blonde at a dinner recently. He hoped she might prove as intelligent as she was charming, and so drew her into conversation, with the following results:

“You must admire Sir Walter Scott," he exclaimed. with sudden animation. “Is not is 'Lady of the Lake' exquisite in its flowing grace and poetic imagery? Is it not

"It is perfectly lovely," she assented, clasping her hands in ecsatcy. “I suppose I have read it a dozen times."

“And Scott's “Marmion," he continued “with its rugged simplicity and marvelous descriptions. One can almost smell the heather on the heath while perusing its splendid pages.”

"It is perfectly grand,” she murmured.

"And Scott's Emulsion," he continued, hastily, for a faint suspicion was beginning to dawn upon him.

“I think,” she interrupted, rashly, "that it's the best thing he ever wrote.”

An old sea captain who had navigated his ship many times round the world, persisted in maintaining that our globe is not a globe at all, but a flat surface. No arguments, derisive or painstaking'y educational, could alter his opinion one jot. Some one said to him once:

"But if the earth is as you say, captain, there must be an edge to it. How is it that no one has ever tumbled over the edge?".

"Why, of course they have," he answered, triumphantly; "that's where the ships go that are reported 'missing.

Falling Hair Stopped. Baldness follows falling hair, falling hair follows dandruff; and dandruff is the result of a germ digging its way into the scalp to the root of the hair, where it saps the vitality of the hair. To destroy that germ is to prevent as well as to cure dandruff, falling hair, and, lastly, baldness. There is only one preparation known to do that, Newbro's Herpicide, an entirely new scientific discovery. Wherever it has been tried it has proven wonderfully successful. It can't be otherwise, because it utterly destroys the dandruff germ. "You destroy the cause, you'remove the effect.”

Mr. Whistler Again. "A Colorado millionaire-extremely millionarie-one wno is getting up an art gallery, went to whistler's studio in the Rue du Bac," says Vance Thompson in his Paris letter to The Saturday Evening Post. “He glanced casually at the pictures on the walls ---symphonies' in rose and gold, in blue and gray, in brown and green.

'How much for the lot?' he asked, with the confidence of one who owns gold mines. “ Four millions,' said Whistler. "'What!' “My posthumous prices, and the painter added, 'Good morning.'”
