Han Francisco Chronicle. t Whist is undeniably a game of skill, mixed, however, with chance. It is not to be learned at a sitting, as other games of cards, but requires constant practice and study. In fact, one has never done studying, for with each fresh deal of the cards new combinations and de velopments present themselves, which require fresh treatment The late Lord Lytton likens a rubber at whist to "a man's life." and Dr. Pole seems to ex pand the simile in the words: "Whist is a perfect microcosm a complete miniature society in itself. Each playei lias one friend to whom he is bound by the strongest ties of mutual interest and sympathy; but he has twice the number of enemies, against whose machinations he is obliged to keep per petual guard. " He continues on in the same strain and draws parallels between this game of cards and the game of li...
