DIG STAKES AT BACCARAT.
In an. experience-meeting of gam
blers recently John l'oudlr of Phila
dolphin said: "Ben Wood, a brother
of Fernando Wood, is the hero of
the greatest game of faroj ever
played in America a game without
limit at which in tho early morning
hours, after all night's piny, Men
Wood rose up, after winning from
John Morrisscy, in his own gambling-house
in Twenty-fourth street,
S1G0,000. No wonder John Morris
scy died poor. I took part in tho
biggest baccarat game ever played
in this-or in any other country." I
had moved to New York. Schuyler
and Jimmy Watson, the latter one
-of the best known potts in the State
of New York, kept u baccarat game
at No. 11 West Twenty-fourth street,
New York. The game was just be
coming popular in this country.
Jimmy Watson had Invited August
Belmont, Lloyd Phrenix, Chailcs
Keep, myself, and one or two others
I need not name, to a swell dinner
at his gambling-house. And it was
a dinner, lie gave us to understand
that a little game might be expected
after dinner, and without limit. I
got all the wine I wanted, and was in
bad luck, bix hundred dollars was
mutually agreed upon between us
players as tho limit for each turn.
I played till 1 o'clock in the morn
ing, and to my disgust found myself.
81,500 out, and rose up from the
table thinking I had enough to last
me all night, and lay down on a sofa
in'thc front room till Charley Keep
woke me up to take a bottle of
champagne. I was not loo sleepy
to do that. My courage woke up,
too. Keep's father-in-law was worth
$5,000,000. and he himself com
manded unlimited cash, as did every
man at that board. I said : Charlcj',
give mc 51,000.' He said: 'Cer
tainly, and as much more as you
want.' I went at it again with vary
ing fortune, pausing to hold my
breath with astonishment to see Bel
mont make a bet of $GO,000 on one
turn. Belmont won By 1 o'clock
in the morning (it was a hot August
night in 1871) I was winner of
S 11,000, besides my 81,000 debt to
Keep and outside of my loss early
in the evening of $4,500. Lloyd
Phoenix won, too. We nearly
'busted' Jimmy Watson, for
the entire party took from the bank
that August night 8200,000. Jimmy
Watson had to mortgage all his stud
of fine lacehorses and his Jersey
farms, and what has become of them
1 know not but that was a great
night." Pittsburg Commercial Ga
zette. "Are you familiar with the vari
ous causes which bring about so
much drunkenness in this benighted
land I" he asked.
"I am (hie) quite familiar with
some of them, sis," hiccoughed the
young man politely; "such as
whisky, gin, brandy, and beer for
(hie) instane." Tid-Bits.
A PAUPER'S DYING BEQUEST.
An amusing aud yet' pathetic in
cident in what the poet Gray called
" the short and simple annals of
the poor," is told by Mr. John J. It.
Micklcjohn, one of the Inspectors
of the Poor, at Shcrwick, Shetland
Islands. lie Bays that some time
ago an old woman, named Barbara
Smith, came under the notice of the
Board. She was extremely ill, and
it did not look likely that she would
long need care of any kind. She
did not reside on the main land, bu
on a small island a few miles distant
and there being no parochial institu
tions in that place, Barbara neces
sarily occupied the position of a
pauper living out. The trouble
from which she suffered dated back
many years. In better and moie
prosperous days she had in some
way laid the foundation for Chionic
Indigestion and Dyspepsia, and out
of this had sprung other complaints
as age and bodily infirmities crept
apace upon her.
Barbara was not ignorant, albeit
she had fallen into poverty. In ear
lier life she somehow obtained the
advantage of a fair education, and
this, added to native shrewdness,
enabled her to use good judgment in
respect to her own situation and
state of health. Although she had
long suffered from asthma and a
bronchial affection, Barbara was
wise enough to see that these ail
ments arose from the disordered
stomach and digestion, and that if
the main trouble could bo cured the
others would soon leave her. It is
probable that her disease began as
others do, with the usual symptoms :
headaches, bad breath, the rising of
floiir fluids in tho throat, oppression
and faintncss at tho pit of the stom
ach, loss of sleep, coated tongue,
dull eyes, bad taste in the mouth,
&o., and finally became chronic aud
hopeless through her not being able
to find any remedy. The Inspector
states that she had been under med
ical treatment for years, but to no
effect. In this stiait she ono day
made tho following touching appeal
to the Inspector: "I have been
swallowing medicines for months.
They do me no good. I am going
on from worse to worse. I can en
dure it no longer. I feel that in a
week or two I shall be dead. Thcic
is one last request 1 would make of
you: give mo a bottle of -Mother
Soigcl's Curative Syrup; it is my
only hope. If it proves a failure
and docs mo no good I will die in
pence, and make no more expense
to the parish."
It seems she had got hold of one
of Mother Scigel's Almanacks and
rend of the gicat cures wrought by
the Syrup in cases like hers.
The Board pitied tho poor lone
Woman and granted her petition, be
lieving, however, the syrup would
prove as useless as the other medi
cines she had already taken. What
was their astonishment to And, in the
course of a few days, that she had
not only been able to get out of bed,
but to move about outside the house,
aud had taken journeys to a consid
erable distance, and was actually en
joying better health than since she
was first taken ill. The asthma and
bionchitis, which were no more than
symptoms of her true disease (indi
gestion and dyspepsia), rapidly
abated, aud it now seems that Hai
bara will soon bo as halo and heart'
as the Inspector himself, and be one
of the hosts of living witnesses to
the power of Mother Soigcl's Syrup
to save the thousands who were just
ready to perish.

A REMARKABLE CASE.
Under tho nbovo heading the
Doncustcr Reporter of July Gth,
1887, publishes tho following m its
Our readers may recall tho cir
cumstance of a young clerk, named
Arthur IJicliold, falling insensible
on tho 'NVcatley Lano in this town
somo litno ngo, and bciug picked
up, as ho continued perfectly help
less, and taken in a cab by two
gentlemen to the oflice of P. W.
Fisher, Esq; the solicitor who em
ployed him. On restoring him to
consciousness it was ascertained
that he was aflictcd with what
seemed to bo an incurable disease.
When he was able to speak ho
said he had been to his dinner and
and was on his way back to his
work, when suddenly his head was
in a whirl and he fell in the street
like a man who is knocked down.
On coming to his senses in the soli
citor's ollicc lie thought what this
might mean, and feared ho was
going to have a fit of illness, which
we all know is a very dreadful
thing for a poor man with a family
to care for.
With this in his mind lie at once
sought the best medical advice,
telling the doctors how he had been
attacked. They questioned him
and found that his picsent malaity
was exhaustion of the nervous sys
tem resulting from general debility,
indigestion, and dyspepsia of a
chronic nature. This in turn had
been caused by confinement to his
desk and grief at the loss of dear
friends by death. The coming on
of this strange disease, as described
by Mr. Itichold, must be of inter
est botli to sick and well. He had
noticed for several years previously,
in fact, that his eyes and face be
gan to have a yellow look; there
was a stick' and unpleasant slime
on the gums and teeth in the
morning; the tongue coated; and
the bowels so bound and costivo
that it induced that most painful
and troublesome ailment the piles.
He says there was some pain in
the sides aud back and a sense of
fulness on the right side, as though
the liver wore enlarging, which
proved to be the terrible fact.
The secretions from the kidneys
would be scanty and high-coloured,
with a kind of gritty or sandy
deposit after standing.
These tilings had troubled Mr.
Itichold a long time, and after his
fall in tho street he clearly perceived
that the fit of giddiness was nothing
more than a sign of the steadly
and deadly advance of the complaint,
which began in digestion and dys
pepsia. His story of how he went
from one physician to another in
search of a cure that Ins wife and
little ones might not come to want is
very pathetic and touching. Finally
he became too ill to keep his situa
tion aud had to give it up. This
was a sad calamity. He was appall
ed to think how he should be able to
live. But God jaised up friends
who helped to keep the wolf from
the door. He then went to the "sea
side at Walton-on-the-Naze, but
neither tho change, nor the phy
sicians who treated him there, did
any good. All being without avail
he visited London, with a sort of
vague hope that some advantage
might happen to him in the metro
polis. This was in October, 1885.
How wonderful, indeed, are the
ways of Providence, which dashes
down our highest hopes and then
helps us when we least expect it.
While in London he stated his con
dition to a friend, who strongly ad
vised him to try a medicine which ha
called Mother Seifrl's Curative
Syrup, saying it was genuine and
honest, and often cured when every
thing else had failed. He bought
a bottle of a chemist in Pimlico, and
began using it according to tho di
rections. He did this without faith
or hope, and the public, may there
fore judge of his surprise and plea
sure when after taking a few doses
he felt great relief. Ho could eat
better ; his food distressed him less ;
tho symptoms we have named abated ;
the dark spots which had floated
before his eyes like smuts of soot,
gradually disappeared, and liis
strength increased. Before this
time his knees would knock together
whenever lie tried to walk. Ho en
couraged ,vas he now that he kept
on using Mother Seiyel's Gurativo
Syrup until it ended' in completely
In speaking of his wonderful re
covery Mr. Itichold says it made
him think of poor Robinson Crusoe,
and his deliverance fiom captivity
on his island in the sea; nnd added,
"But for Mother Soigcl's Curative
Syrup tho grass would now bo
glowing over my grave."
Our readers can rest assured of
of tho strict truth of all tho state
ments in this most icmprkablc case,
as Mr. Itichold (now residing at
bwiss uottage, Walton-on-the-Nnzo;
belongs to ono of tho oldest and
most respected families iii the beau
tiful villaco of Long Melford,
Suffolk, and his personal character
is attested by so high an authority
as the Rev. C. J. Maityn, rector
of that paiish, besides other excel
lent names, We have deemed the
case of sudi iiiporlanco to tho pub
lic as to justify us in giving this
short account of it lu our columns.
