fashions and served in bo many ditl'uront
stylos that it is often luistuken for an en
tirely new creation. Love is blind, and
commits many Borious blunders. To ex

argument that "lova will go whuru it is

unions are so often tho rcsulll Tho In

in this very city are common. Every day

It will be for the possession of a watch

that, of courao, he could got the watch.

faithful payment of tho same according
to priuiou comiiiious. nils set the young
man back but ha bethought him of a
friend. This friend in ono of the judicial
nllirers of the law, and in tho fullness of his
heart, he wont tho young man's security.
Tho young man put on his watch and
marched gnyly down the street, slopping
every few yards to see what time it was,
llo felt proud and, of course, grateful to
his frioud, tho judicial, If not judicious
Justice. Ho concluded to celebrate the
event by the quailing 0f a Jorum or two,
and soon wus feeling gay. He felt lucky,
too. llo had about $13 In tngnov In his
insldo nockot.aud ho thought thut ierliaps
whiloin such excellent luck ho could
"make a scrutch" nnd win enough to pay
for his watch outright and thus relievo his
friend, llo studied awhile, thou walked
into a leading pokoi-room. Ho did not
fuel quite certain of himself at first, so ho
looked on awhilo. Ho put a band on each
hip and, with arms akimbo, watched in
tently the gaino. Boon he saw how it was
going and concluded he had a "cinch" to
win. There was one man in particular he
could beat one man who would lay down
his baud every time if the others would
"ralso" tho but.
"(iimino $15 worth of chocks." said lm
Bitting down. Thoy were furnished him.
llo played on awhilo and was vury
lucky. He won $14 on the first hand snd
twico that in a Jackpot soon after. Ho re
gretted that he had not dropped on to the

got a big band and bet light for fear of
running every one out. The scary man

smart young man could not get his monev
down in tune. He shoved it over in a
heap and counted it afterward. When tho
hsuds were rxoeed tho timid man had
the more Kitent and took in tho money.
The smart young inim mused. He
