WHAT IS WRONG IN CARD-
By David M. Evans.
Card-playing seems to pervade
every class of society. Card-parties
for playing whist, eucher, and
cinch, in various styles, are among
the most popular evening enter
tainments in many parts of the
country. Newspapers of wide cir
culation dignify the play by
establishing a special department
for it under an editor learned in
the craft. Noble men and women
of mature years, as well as young
people indulge in the recreation to
such an extent in some com
munities that it may fairly be
termed a "craze."
All admit that there are serious
evils connected with the play un
der some circumstances, but some
maintain that they are not inherent.
A common expression is, "There is
nothing wrong in cards per se ."
It is contended that, when played
by respectable people iu a respec
table place, cards are harmless and
free from evil, except, perhaps,
that the play is frivolous, and leads
to a waste of time a common
characteristic of all recreations.
Notwithstanding all this, is there
not a prevalent feeling a sort of
instinct, even among its devotees
that there is something wrong in
the plavr btnp it ot its vile asso
ciations, ignore its temptations to
cheating, ' 'nigging,' ' and its
proneness to provoke quarrels, and
there is a residum of distrust which
points to some hidden miasma to
be feared. Parents dread to have
their children learn to play, and
tolerate it at home to prevent the
greater evil of a stealthy knowledge
m bad surroundings. Educational
institutions forbid the play because
of its vicious tendencies. The con
elusion is inevitable that there
must be something wrong "per sc."
What is it?
The play at cards is founded
upon deception. That is the es'
sential fundamental principle of the
play. By the rules, the player who
deceives his opponent the most
adroitly, overreaches him the most
cunningly, and misleads him most
thoroughly, is esteemed the best
player. This reverses the ordinary
rules of morality by turning the
vice of deception into a virtue, and
crowning the arch deceiver with
honor. By such ethics the moral
nature is debauched, for the mind
is made familiar with a species of
deception deemed a virtue, and
therefore justifiable under certain
conditions. The conscience is made
to recognize a legal deceit, estab
lished as a rule of conduct. Thus
the habit of card playing under
mines character, destroys the al
truistic spirit, and so blunts the
moral sensibilities that it becomes
easy for the card devotee to carry
the card table ethics where any
tactics, not in violation of law, are
justifiable over into social and
business Itfo, a practice quite
common. A business man said re
cently, "I have noticed that, when
I have dealings with a card-plaver,
I must look on all possible sides of
the matter, or I am sure to be
cheated." This is one insidious
poison of the play.
lheu, again, card playing is a
vicious recreation, because it is not
a true game. It is merely a con
test in deception, supplemented by
cnance. it leaves little or no room
for brain power. It substitutes the
pernicious principle of deception
for the element of strategy, which
is the only foundation of a genuine
game. It confounds deception with
strategy. This may seem to be a
mere play upon words, but the
difference between the two is

radical iu giving character to con
tests. A play founded upon de- -
ccption has no uplift, no creative
power, but It Is ot necessity "per
sc and philosophically iiarmtui.
On the other hand, the true game,
founded upon what for want of a
better word is called "strategy,"
is uplifting, stimulating the mental
faculties, and invigorating the
physical powers. A clear appre
hension of this vital distinction will
compel every thoughtful mind to
condemn, even on this ground only,
the play at cards.
But it may be said, 'There is
deception iu all games. In chess,
or checkers, a move may be made
having no other purpose than to
deceive an opponent as to the real
point of attack. In blind-man's
buff the captive uses every possible
ruse to make thecaptor believe that
he has caught some other person
than the captive. In base-ball the
pitcher does his best to mislead the
man at the bat by throwing the ball
in curves, or in some other peculiar
way. All these are recognized as
games the ethics of which moralist!)
generally do not condemn. Is not
the root-principle of the deception
practiced the same as that of card.
Most assuredly it is not. The
artifice to secure an advantage iu
these and in all true games is al
ways such as can be successfully
met by an opponent who adequately
uses his rational and physical
powers, knowledge, and skill.
The purpose of the move on the
chess-board needs only keen per
ception, quick discernment, and
sound judgment to lorestall it.
The power of protection is left, by
the rules of the game, iu possession
of the player who is attacked. He
can meet the assault by the use of
his wits. Hence the game is a
species of mental gymnastics which
trains the faculties for service out
side of such games.
In like manner, the game of
blind-man's-buff calls for the exer
cise of brains, though in a some
what different direction. The cap
tor must make careful observations,
and grasp every identifying feature
of his captive.
In the game of base-ball, if the
batsman exercises properly hia
judgment, is quick of eye, prompt
iu decision, and duly skilful, the
pitcher will put forth his curves in
Such artifices serve as tests of
faculties, skill, agility andstrength.
They call forth the powers of mind
and body to meet emergencies, and
ate here called strategy to dis
tinguish them from the practices
put forth iu card playing.
On the contrary, in card-playing,
by the concealment of the cards, by
the element of chance, and by the
rules of the play, the false pretense,
the cunning Jlnesse, and tthe mis
leading ruse, constitute a deception
against which there is no protec
tion however quick, no judgment
however sound, no astuteness of
brain nor ability of any kind, can
ward off an attack. Even should
the victim, by a happy guess, con
clude that a card -was played to
mislead, he would be helpless to
defend himself, unless chance had
furnished him with a certain card.
His mental powers cannot assist
him, for the rules do not call them
into play. There is therefore here
no battle of brains, nor trial of
mental force or physical prowess.
It is simply a play of "make-believe"
or "lying," perhaps rather
a harsh term, in which the most
competent deceiver has the ad
vantage, This is brought out glar
ingly in the so-called game of
poker, where it is frequently the
case that the most audacious make
