She sat at the old piano;
Her ftrut-r. thin nnd pale.
Ban over the yoll.iw keyboard
The chords of the mluor scale.
Her hand were withered and shrunken,
Herfor.n with air was bent;
They seemed twin spirits In look and tons.
Herself and the Instrument;
Forth intrnment, quaint and olden.
With Its single tremulant strings.
Was little more than a spirit.
And Its tune seemed a whirr of wings.
And she; the keen chisel ot sorrow.
And the cruel burin of care
Had cut In her dear old features
Ueep f unow s here and there.
Till all that was grn and earthy
Had been chipped aud smoothed away.
And iisclod the patient angel
Behind its turn mask uf olay.
She nauped. And with upturned features
And reminiscent yf.
Was transited In one brief moment
lUck io ) oung life's 1'aradtse.
And the lovely spirit of childhood,
ho trusting and i uro and sweet.
Came hak and g oniled her
From beaming forehead to feet.
Then she w ent the keys, and tho mails
Of vanished year leapt out;
Each noie n a palter 'of merry feet,
Andagletful, childish shout.
And fingers dimpled and rosy
Tripped r the enchanted keys.
And the muMc was fresh as young laughter.
Or tho warble of birds In the trees.
No strain from the old tone-masters,
'o huritt of harmony grand,
Sprang from the old piano
At the touch of that magic hand) 0
But the simple airs of her girlhood
Rippled in melody sweet.
As In days when her sky was all sunshine,
And instill ft w" bappy as Meet.
And sparkled the light that vanished
1 nun e) es long dried or tears;
And inkled fet to her music
That bate mouldered ill dust for years.
And as we watched and listened.
Bhe seemed to our moistened eyes
Already beyi nd ilia portals
That opened tpward the skies.
Kor ss smed It longer a marvel
Tost when, in ths morning graf.
The dlscipic came to the tomb of the Lord
To bear the body a ay,
They found but HI c ait -off garment.
With Its odor of aloes aud myrrh.

Of an einptr palcnre.

Wa want to know. If we play a strict game of poker, If
a man opensa Jack pot tor the limit and the next

The opener and tha second man are entlttedtn a, how
for the amount they have fh tba pot, Tho fact that tha
third man had the deepen parse doesn't necessarily
make htm a sura winner.
Last night I w.t, playing poker with a party of
friends. I held np three spades nnd asked for swn
c.tnts Tho dealer in dealing Uieui tome turned up one
or them and. after drallng all around, dealt tna an
other cant, which made my Hush, beating bun (the

O, A. Ksqcikou Hroaklyn.
Yon are entitled to the pot. The dealer was wrong In
Ms assertion. The exposed card was dead. Yon could
not he made to accept It, You both erred, however, tn
waiting unt I all the other players were , erred before
you were helped. Tha dealer should have given yon
the next card of tha Ulva ones, and before the players
w ho followed ou had been helped to coinpleiod hand,.
This defect didn't make you a loser.
Will yon please decide a little dlspntel A party ot
gentlemen were playing poker. All came tn to the
dealer, lie lalsedlt. Tbr.e aawtla raise and drew

and hu wssnut. Ho said ho could bet with four ami

Tho dealer was wrong. He could bet on four cards to
his heart'a content, of course, but. If called, he could
nevarwtn. He waited toolong to rectify his error. Ha
should bava dlscotered tbe deilclency prior to raising
or betting tn his hand.
Kindly decide the following point! In a game of
poker the dealer, alter delivering live cards lo each
player, after giving hlmseir his nrth card, aa he places
the deok on tho table turns face npward the topmost
card of tho pack. A says It Is a misdeal. B says It Is a
good deal, ttho Is right? AaroiYR.
