Its in- fluences are of an elevating character. It not only teaches, but practically enforces the necessity of patience and perseverance, courage and courtesy, self-reliance and self- control. The game is also peculiarly and sclf-evidently worthy of paternal encourage- ment, as a knowledge of its incomparable beauties will destroy the taste for demoralis- ing games of chance, which so often prove fatal stumbling blocks in the paths of the young."
