The History of
Brought to you by
Once upon a time a man called Stingy Jack invited the devil to have a drink with him. Jack, who lived up
to his Moniker, did not want to spend money so he persuaded the devil to turn himself into a coin that Jack
could use to pay. The devil agreed but instead of buying the drinks Jack decided to keep the money. He put it
deep down inside his pocket beside a silver cross which kept the devil from turning back to his original form.
Eventually Jack decided to let the devil go as long as he promised not to bother Jack for one more year and if
Jack died the devil would not claim his soul. A year later Jack convinced the devil to climb a tree for a piece of
fruit, while the devil was picking the fruit Jack carved a cross in the tree bark which prevented the devil from
climbing down until the devil promised Jack that he wouldn’t bother him for 10 more years. When Jack died God
wouldn’t allow him into heaven and the devil, upset by the tricks that jack had played on him but keeping his
word not to claim his soul would not let Jack into hell. He sent Jack off into the dark night with only a burning
coal to light his way. Jack put the coal into a carved turnip and has wandered the earth with it ever since. The Irish
call this ghostly figure Jack of the lantern. Eventually it was shortened to the term that we use today Jack-O’-
Lantern. Folks in Ireland and Scotland started carving their own versions of Jack’s lanterns by
etching scary faces into turnips or potatoes and setting them near the windows and the doors
to scare away Stingy Jack and other evil spirit. When they emigrated to America the tradition
came with them. They realize that pumpkins were native to our country and that they made
perfect Jack-O’-Lanterns and that’s why we carve pumpkins to this very day.
Stop by our scary store for lunch or High Tea,
but look out for the ghosts

VISION REQUIRED FOR MIRROR DISTRIBUTION WEST NORTH EAST
Q 10 3 J9854 —
By Phillip Alder - Bridge Columnist K Q 10 9 7 3 2 A6 85
J4 A32 Q 10 9 7 6
Jean Cocteau, a French novelist, playwright, artist and filmmaker who died in 1963, said, 2 J74 K Q 10 9 8
“Mirrors would do well to reflect a little more before sending back images.”
That is subtly clever. At the bridge table, hands with mirror distribution have the same AK762
number of cards in each of the four suits. For declarer, they are usually bad news because J4
there is no way to take a discard or score a ruff until the mirror is broken. K85
In this week’s deal, South had to overcome not only mirror distribution but also a bad
trump break. How did he make four spades after West led the heart king? Dealer: West; Vulnerable: East-West
West almost led his singleton, but rightly decided that since he probably had a natural The Bidding:
trump trick, he did not need to work for a ruff.
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST OPENING
When the dummy came down, declarer noticed that the mirror distribution seemed 3 Spades 3 Hearts Pass Pass
to leave him with four unavoidable losers: one heart, one diamond and two clubs. Pass 4 Spades All Pass LEAD:
Then matters got worse. After winning the first trick with dummy’s heart ace, South K Hearts
led the spade jack (tempting East to cover if he had all three missing trumps) and was
unpleasantly surprised to see East throw a club (playing black on black).
Now declarer had only one chance: To find West with 3-7-2-1 distribution. South drew
two rounds of trumps, took his minor-suit winners, then led the heart jack. West won,
cashed the spade queen and, perforce, played a heart. Declarer discarded a diamond
from dummy and a club from hand. Then, on the next heart, he ruffed on the board and
pitched his last club. He crossruffed the last three tricks and lost only two hearts and one
spade. Well envisioned.
