POINTS ON CARDS.
Card Trlrlts Viewed from tho Stand
point of Exact Science.
Card tricks so called can bo divided prop
erly into two classes triclw which are
purely tricks and nothing else, and tricks
which are founded on mathematics. Of
the former it can only be said that it re
quins a special dexterity to handle tho
cards coupled with lo 2g practice to make
any sort of a success at it. Thero are scores
of trick books which profess to reveal hid
den secrets and to show the willing enthu
siast how to astonish and mystify his
friends on every occasion.
The basis of many of these tricks is the
art of palming, which alone net one in a
thousand can learn to do with any degree
of success. In fact, it requires a born
genius to manipulate cards skillfully, and
when a genius of this sort comes into thu
world he is likely to .switch off from tho
playing of harmless tricks to "working tho
boys," iu the vernacular of the gambling
table, and become an out and out sharper.
Thero are, however, a, number of simple
card tricks, somo of which are founded on
mathematics and others which require but
little skill and are easily learned, which are
extremely interesting. To the mind not
versed in the range and power of numbers
it is simply wonderful what can be done
with cards. For instance, take the old
spelling trick, which is nothing more than
a simple arrangement of tho cards, but al
ways a constant sourco of delight to the
children, and of instruction as well, espe
cially to thoae who aro just learning to
Arrange the thirteen cards of any one
suit in the following order: 5, 0. 10. kinir.
knave, 2, 4, fl, queen, ace, 7, 8, :t, with the 5
at tho bottom. Then take the top card
Irom the top and placo it at the bottom.
Continue tho operation and begin to spell,
remembering that each card represents a
letter. Spell in this way o-n-e. Then turn
up the fourth card and it will be the ace or
one spot. Then continue and spell t-w-o.
and the fourth curd will be the two spot.
Then t-hr-e-e aud the sixth card will be
the three .spot, and so on, leaving out each
card as it is spelled.
This is an excellent trick for the chil
dren, and hero is another one, similar in
idea, aud which will give them a knowl
edge of tho vowels. A little story goes
with it. A certain ship contained a crew
of fifteen Christians and fifteen Turks.
Provisions running short, owing toastorm
having driven tho ship out of her course, it
became necessary for fifteen of the crew to
die in order to save tho re-t.
The wily captain therefore made the fol
lowing proposition: That the crow should
bo placed in a line and ewry ninth man
counted out, until fifteen men had been se
lected. He then placed them in such a
position that every ninth mau was a Turk.
Now the question is, How did he do it? Let
fifteen black cards represent tho Turks
and fifteen red cards represent the Chris
tians. Of course, it all depends upon tho
arrangement of these cards, but it has
been found best in order to facilitate tho
memorizing of them to take a sentence in
which the five vowels appear.
Here is tho sentence, "From numbers,
aid and art never will famedrpart." The
first vowel in the sentence is o. In tho
grammatical arrangement of tho vowels (a,
e, i, o, u) this is the fourth. Therefore, be
ginning with tho red curds take four aud
place them on the table faco down. U is
the next vowel and tho fifth in the order.
Therefore takofive cardf from the black pile
and place them on the four rod ones. Then
two red, one black, thiee red, one black,
one red, two black, two red, three black,
one red, two black, two red and one black,
alternating the red and black. Then be
ginning with the pile f..ce up, every niuth
card left out will be a black one until they
are exhausted from the pack.

THE AUSTRALIAN DYING YEAR.
Not In the winter ot life he dies,
Chiliad, and snowy, and old.
In the glory of summer the Old Year diss,
When the midnight chime is tolled.
Not in the sky is a hint of death
A sky of infinite blue
Nor is there a sigh in the breezy breath
That Is playing tho leaflets through.
The cattle and birds to tho shaSe retreat,
In drowsy, still delight;
And flowers have scented tho noonday heat;
Yet tho Old Year dies tonight.
And the air is filled with tho sound of bees,
The humming of summer flics,
And there'soy in tho soasd o the rustling trees;
Yet to-night tho Old Year dies.
Not in tho winter of Ufa be dies,
But in his summer's prime;
His labors end, ho stricken dies,
And swells the ranks of Time.

WAENED IN A DBEAJL
Several years ago I resided in a wild,
mountainous and rather lonely region of
Virginia. There was a railroad but a
few rods in front of ray door, and a sta
tion and considerable village about a
mile to tho west. The nearest station
to the east was about ten miles distant.
I moved to the place with my young
wifo late in the autumn, and about the
first of the following March I was at
tacked with typhoid fever and was ill
for about a month. But, thanks to a
naturally strong constitution and the
careful nnrsmg of a loving and intelli
gent wife, I slowly recovered.
As soon as I was strong enough to sit
up and walk a little I told my wife she
had better take the cars and go and visit
her brother, who lived about fifty miles
east of us. She had been taking caro of
me so faithfully through my illness,
both by day and night, that I feared her
health and strength would fail her if
she did not rest a while. I knew she
had been very anxious to go, and I felt
sure that her brother and his family
would be very glad to see her and would
try to make her visit a pleasant one.
She hesitated about leaving me. fearing
I might need her care; but after waiting
a few days and seeing that I continued
to regain my health and strength she
decided to follow my advice. Accord
ingly one pleasant morning about tho
middle of April, after dcing everything
she could for my comfort and bidding
me to be careful about talcing cold or
walking too far, she started, intending
to be gone a fortnight.
One day I exercised n little beyond
my strength, and felt quite tired at
night and lay awake for a long time.
At last I fell into an -uneasy slumber
and dreamed a very curious and star
tling dream. I seemed to have gone for
ward into the future a couple of days,
and instead of Wednesday, the 24th, it
seemed in iny dream to be Friday, the
20th. It appeared in my sleep tliat a
heavy rain had been falling most of the
day and all of the day before, but tha
evening was clear and pleasant and not
very dark, though the moon was not
shining. I seemed to bo walking along
the railroad line toward the east. I first
passed through a wood about half a
mile wide; then for about a mile
through fields coutaining a couple of
farm houses, one inhabited and the
I then entered another wood, and after
walking about a milo and a half I camo
to a stream gently swollen by the rain,
which had weakened the railroad bridge
so much that the passenger train, in at
tempting to cross, had broken it down,
and the bridge and carriages, completely
wrecked, were lying on both sides of tho
stream, except portions tliat were float
ing down. Some of the passengers lay
dead or dying among the ruins: some
were floating in the water, and a few
were clinging to trees and bushes on the
bank. It was a fearful and heartrend
ing sight, too fearful for description,
and such as I trust I may never see in
The next day early in the morning it
commenced raining, and continued to
rain through tho day and the following
night. I felt very lonely and uneasy all
day, which feeling was increased by re
ceiving a letter from my wife, saying
that she intended to come home on Fri
day night by the express train. I re
tired late, feeling much worried on ac
count of my fearful dream. And to add
to tlvs fear, presentiment, or whatever
you may cll it, the dream was repeated,
and even more distinct and vivid than
the first lime.
When I arose in the morning tho rain
was still falling. This was Friday, and
therefore was the day on which my wife
was to start for home. There were two
passenger trains from the east each day,
ono at 9 o'clock in the forenoon and the
other at 9 in the evening. This last was
the expre&s. and the one on which my
wifo was coming.
Toward the middle of tho afternoon
the rain ceased falling, and the clonds
slowly cleared away. The dream had
made such au impression ou my mind
that I resolved to attempt to find tho
stream I had seen so plainly in my
dreams, and if it appeared a.z all dan
gerous to attempt to stop tho train be
fore reaching it. Accordingly soon ater
tho rain was over I got ready and started.
I had never before had occasion to visit
the station in this direction, and there
fore was entirely unacquainted with this
part of the country. But I found every
thing just as it appeared in my dream.
Immediately after starting I passed
through the wood I had been in my
dream and then entered the open field
and found the two farm houses, one in
habited and the other desei ted. In fact,
everything seemed as natural as if I had
really beeu this way before I walked
slowly, and late in the afternoon I came
to the stream, which flowed rapidly and
seemed much swolltu. But the bridge,
instead of being broken down and min
gled with the broka carriages and man
gled passengers, was still standing: and
though its timber looked quite old and
weather l?aten there seeinfsl to be little
danger of its breaking down beneath th
weight of a passing tram. Thre was a
heavy goods train due from tho wess
about 0 o'clock, and I resolved to wait
at least uatil it came. an1 if it pasox?
over in safety there conld be. I thought,
but little danger of accident to the lighter
la due time it came thundering along,
and passed safely ovjr the bridge. But
though it might have been owing to my
excited imagination, it eetsaed to me
that bridge bent xnl shook beneath the
weight of the train in a manner highly
snffjrestive of danger. At all events I
resolved to wait a while longer and
if the stream, which was still rising,
would have any apparent effect upon the
bridce. I took with me a lantern, and
also a thick blanket to protect me from
the damp night air.
Shortly after sunset, as I was sitting a-
few rods from tho stream, I heard a loud
splash, and hurrying to tho bridge I saw
that a portion of the bank on the oppo
site side had broken away, and also that
the action of tho water, or some other
cause, had weakened tho foundation of
the bridge in such a manner that a por
tion of tho line was bent and lowered
enough to make it impossible for a train
to cross. I immediately crossed the
bridge, resolved to stop the train if pos
sible before it reached the bridge and
Veil, to make a long story short, I
went on in tho direction from which the
train was to come, and soon found a
placo which commanded a good view of
the line for a considerable distance. I
lit my lantern, wrapped my blanket
closely around mo and sat down to my
wearisome vigil of two hours. The
night was clear, and not very dark,
though no moon was shining. I suf
fered nothing from cold, as it was re
markably warm, even for the climate of
Virginia, and I succeeded 'in keeping
awake, though tho task was a difficult
Slowly the moments passed by, but at
last I saw by my watch that the time
had nearly expired, and a few minutes
would decide the fate of the train and
its human freight. Soon I saw a light,
far away and very small at first, but
rapidly growing larger and brighter.
I arose, trembling with excitement, and
commenced swinging tho lantern above
my head, and, a3 the train drew near, I
redoubled my exertions and shouted as
loud as I could.
Onward came the train at a rapid
speed. It was a time of terrible sus
pense to me. Should the engineer fail
to see my sigmd, or not seo it in time to
stop tho train before going a few rods
past me, I knew that no human power
could save it. On it came, and, oh, joy
unspeakablel just as I gaco up my exer
tions and stepped from tho lino my
frantic signals were observed. The en
gineer whistled for brakes, arousing the
sleepy brakemen liko an electric shock,
who flew quickly to their stations.
The train was quickly stopped, and I
then informed the engineer and con
ductor of the danger ahead, while the
frightened passengers left tho carriages
and gathered aroundme. Many a brave
man grow pale when he learned what a
fearful death ho had so narrowly es
caped. Among the passengers I found my
wife, not mangled and lifeless, but alive
and well, though somewhat frightened,
and a good deal surprised at seeing me.
The conductor gave me a seat next to my
wife, and then had tho train backed to
the station it had just left, from which
telegrams were sent to warn all other
trains of tho danger.
In the morning my wife and I took the
train for home. I have but little more
to add, except that the company insisted
upon making mo a handsome present,
and also gave me a free pass over the
road. I do not pretend to be able to ex
plain the dream, which was certainly a
remarkablo one, though doubtless nr
more so than others could relate; but 1
am satisfied that this dream was the
means of saving many human lives from
a sudden and most terrible death. Balti
