IS NOW LOOKING FOR A JOB
AX TWO DOLLARS PER
New York, May 2. John Wild, of
this city, otherwise known as "Lucky
Jack," has gone back to bill-posting at
$2 a day .after having "blown in"
within a year a fortune of $78,000
which ho inherited from an uncle.
"Lucky Jack" was employed by the
management of the Academy of Music
when the news came that he wa3 rich.
He put away the paste pot, adomed
himself with diamonds and tfeok a pre
liminary whirl, to accustom himself to
a more rapid existenoe.,
He backed Eddie LeVls, the prize
fighter, against Dave Sullivan. Then
he swept across the field of vision of
the Hon. "Chappie" Moran, who at
onco threw out a hook and line. Wild
made his headquarters at Ed Herbert's
on Third avenue, near Fourteenth
street, opposite Tammany hall.
Under the tutelage of "Chappie"
Moran Wild took in the racing season
last summer at Saratoga and made
iome large bets, with the usual result
He was also "put up against" several
"fake" pool-Tooms and sustained acdi'
tlonal losses. He was, allowed to win
$4,000 one day in one of the bogus pool
rooms and then went back the nexi
day and parted with $10,000 and so
It was a merry life while it lasted,
In eleven months the dead uncle's for
tuno was as invisible as the dead
uncle himself, and "Lucky" Jack,
minus also his diamonds, was back at
tho Academy of Music seeking his old
job as billposter. He got it, but it too
quickly vanished, and last night he
was standing at the door of the Acad
emy without regular employment.

famine In Egypt and of how as a wise,
God-fearing man, ho is conjectured to
have anticipated the seven yeara of
dearth that overtook the land.
In ancient days there was a huge
lake in Egypt Lake Moeris, whose
waters held in thrall by a great dike,

Egypt in due season and impregnate
the earth with richness and plenty. At
the head of this dike, Sir WlUiam Will

land, of lower Egypt, for it could com
mand the floods that were as llauld
gold to tho land.
"History tells us,' says Sir WUHam,
that Joseph arrived in Egypt late in
the time cf the Hyksos, who ruled low
er Egypt, while Theban dynasties rul
ed upper Egypt. Between the two
crowns there was an unending war. At
years rolled on the fortune of war went

hat Joseph arrived I hey might have
been nearing Ha-Uar, the regulator of
Lake Moeris, and the true southern
frontier of lower Egypt.
"The very natural anxiety about the
loss of the stronghold and the dire con
sequences which would ensue must
have made Pharaoh dream repeatedly
of fat and lean klne, of fnll ears and
