Finally, one of the players asked a spectator to* plav the game for him until he returned. 'the spectator sat down, whereupon the first player left the room. Pretty soon the second player followed the example of the first. The two substitutes played for some time, when one of them asked the. waiter where the original players were. " They are playing chess in the next room, sir," was the, waiter's reply.
