HOW HlBJIAl DOMTIX WAt BlAT.
Herman Oolsten is a German, and bis
home Is 1248 Collins street, 8t. Louis.
Herman went to New Orleans some time
ago, where he came into possession of
between eight hundred and a thousand
dollars, llorfiver, before leaving Now
Orleans be uiadu tho acquaintance
of a lot ol well-dressed sentlemen,
lolly fellows, who took great
paint to show Herman the sights and to
make hit stay in the big city of tbe scuta
as pleasant as possible. But the time
came for Herman to return to hit home
In tit. Louis, and on Thursday night he
boarded the Mississippi Central train for
airo. To bis surprise as well at hit de
light, ho met a lot of his friends on
tbo train, and ou Inquiry he found that
they, too, were bound for St. Louis, and
ol course they would all travel together.
The party was a Jolly one, and Herman
was well pleased with the company ho
was In. They had lots of fun and played
cards and drank whenever they could
;t anything to drink, and everything
went "merry as a marriage bell" until
ust about the time tbu party reached
Cairo. By this time Herman was ready
lor almost anything, and when a " littlo
game" was suggeeted he was not loth to
take a hand, and he did to. This was
ust about tbe lime the cart were being
ansferred, and before tbe party hni.1
been on this sldo of tho river ill-
ten minutes Herman discovered that he
bad been robbed ot about eight hundred
dollars. Then he began to make a noise
and call for the police, and swear because
they did not come tnd arrest the thieves.
But while Herman was making all this
rumpus the sharpers slipped off the train,
and almost before he knew It all but one
ot tbera bad made good their escape. Alt
this occurred on the railroad above Gall-
g ber' mill. Tho only man of the party
bo did not attempt to run away was
bam Houston, a well-known irambier.
ho some ten or twelve years aifo ran a
tiger" In this city. Houston and IIol-
sten came dowu town together.
and went to police headquarters, where
Ollicer Axley was found. Holsten re
lated the story to the officer, and accused
Houston with being one ot the crowd.
and that it was he (Houston) who had
induced him to bet.- The officer touk
Huuiton la charge, and was about to
lock blm up, but at Houston's request
he was taken before 'Squire Comiiii;s.
where be gave bond for hit appearance
ye.terday at 2 o'clock for trial. When
the time for trial came however, it was
learned that Holaten had gone
to St. Louis, but that be had
promised to return on atfShday,
and the cue was continued until two
'clock to-morrow. Houston does not
deny that Holsten was beat out of his
money, but does deny that he had any
tning to do with beating him. It is
altogether probable, and tbe circum
stances seem to indicate that Holsten,
fearing that he might be prosecuted for
gambling, concluded to leave the city,
and there Is reason to believe that when
the hour for the trial to-morrow arrives
he will not be there.
