A Hundred Years to Decide a Bet.
By private letter from Germany
the following facts regarding a siugu
lar and novel wager are communica
ted : Two wealthy and influential
Herlin bankers, desiring to provide
for their children's heir.s, ami fearing
that through disastrous reverses they
might become poor ami therefore be
unable to do so. have made a w: ger
concert.i.ig the United States. The
one bet !*S,00() marks (a mark is equal
to about twenty-five cents of our
money) that the United States will
not remain a republic, but advance to
higher knowledge of the arts and
sciences, while the other, just as con
fident of winning as the other, of
course, bets 4,000 marks that our
country will remain a republic all the
time intervening between this and the
second centennial, but will not retain
the high position in the arts and
sciences which she now occupies.
This sum of 7,000 marks (about
81,750 American money) has been
placed on interest for the period of
I one hundred years, at the expiration
of which period the royal court of
Germany will decide which party is
winner and entitled to the money, the
total sum of which will then be $13,
o'JH American currency. Explicit
agreements and stipulations have
been entered into by both parties in
due form of law, one of which provides
that under no circumstance shall tho
money or any part thereof bo with
drawn before the expiration of the
allotted period of one buudrcd years.
An Ingenious Plea.
A 8( ldier, by the rmme of Richard
Lee, was taken before tho magistrates
of Glasgow, Scotland, lor playing
cards during divine service. The
account of it is thus given :
Sergeant commanded the soldiers
at tho church, and when the parson
had read the prayers he took the
text. Those who had n Bible took
it out, but this soldier had neither
Bible nor common prayer bonk, but
pulling out a pack of cards, bespread
them out before him. He looked j
first at one card and then at another.
The sergeant saw him and said :
"Richard, put up the cards; this is
no place for them."
"Never mind that," said Richard.
"When the service was over the
constable took Richard a prisoner
and brought him before the mayor.
"Well, what have you brought the
soldier here lor ?''
"For playing cards in church."
"Well, soldier, what have you tc
say for yourself?"
"Much sir, I hope."
"Very good; if not, I will punish
you more than ever man was punish
"I have been," said the soldier,
"about six weeks on the march. I
have no Bible or common prayer
bonk; I have nothing but a pack of
cards, and I hope to satisfy your wor
ship of the purity of my intentions."
Then spreading the cards before
the mayor, he begun with the ace.
"When I see the ace it reminds me
that there is but one God.
"When I ice the deuce it reminds
mc of Farther and Son.
"When 1 see the three it reminds
me ol Father, Sou and Holy Ghost.
"When 1 see the lour it reminds
me of the four evangelists thai preach

were wise and five were foolish and

that in six days the Bord made

mc that on the seventh day God

made and hallowed it.
"When I see the eight it reminds
mc of the eight righteous persons that

three sons and their wives.
"When I see the nine it reminds

"When I see the queen it reminds
me of the Queen of Shcbn, who visited
Solomon, for she was as wise a woman
as he was a man. She brought with
her fifty boys and fifty girl?, all
dressed in boys' apparel, for King
roloman to tell which wero boys and
which were girls. King Solomon

girls washed to the olbows anil tho

"Well," said tho mayor, "'you have
given a description of all tho cards in

??What is that?"
"The knave," said the mayor.
"I will give your honor a descrip

"I will not," said the mayor, "if
you do not term mc to be the knave."
"Well/' Baid the soldier "tho
greatest knave I know of is tho con
stable who brought me hero."
"I don't know," said the mayor,
"if he is tho greatest knave, but I
know he is the greatest fool."
"When I count how many spots in
a pack of cards I fine 305?as many

"When I count the number of cards
in a pack I find there are fifty-two?
the number of weeks in a year; and I

"Is a Faint Mule a Hoss 7"
Nothing is more remarkable, says
the San Antonio Herald, than the
facility with which the colored popu
lation become acquainted with tho
forms of law, and the practical
managementof a case in court. There
was a striking illustration of this fact
in the recorder's court, recently.
The prisoner was accused of ridiug
across ono of the bridges in a gait
faster than a walk, and the proof was
that he gallop a paint mule over
Houston street bridge. He managed
his own case.
His honor said : "I think I'll have
to fine you, Johnsing."
'?May I ax yer a few questions?"
"Isn't thar a sign over dat bridge,
warning people how dey must ride?"
"There i.*, and that makes you all
the m ire guilty."
"It does, docs it? Now, Mr. Re
corder, is dat sign what I has to go
bv. Is dat dc law ?"
* "It is."
"Well, den, dat sign reads : "Walk
your horse or you'll be fined." Don't
it? don't it, boss?"
"It does, Johnsing."
"Well, the proof is, I wa^gallopin'
a paint mule, wasn't it, boss ?"
"Y e-s, I believe so," replied his
TTo..oirtrogfa^i'l^i I n li i
"Now, if your honor is willing to
admit dat a paint mule ain't no hoss,
I'll rest de case heah, becase you seo
dc law is I shall walk my hoss, and
as it was a paint mule, dat is fatal to
de indictment. You is a lawyer, and
you ought to know dem pints most as
well as myself."
Reeorder?"Ahem ! for the purpose
of this suit, Johnsing, I'll regard that
paint mule as a hoss."
Prisoner?"Your honor will please
note my 'ccption. I jess wants to
make ono more pint. Allowin' for
the sake of argument, dat ji paint
I mule is a boss, design reads: "Walk
your boss." Now I has de witnesses
hero in court to prove dat paint mule
hoss was not my hoss at all. Dc law
says walk your hoss."
Recorder?"I'll fine you ten dollars,
And as Johnsing was conducted to
the lockup he expressed great sympa
thy for the taxpayers, as he intended
to bring a suit for $100,000 damages
for false imprisonment.

A few days before the nomination
of Samuel J. Tilden, when free to
speak its honost belief, the Cincinnati
i:v quire snid of him : "It could not
but be that a man educated in cun
ning, in hypocrisy, in iniquity, nomi
nated in corruption and shameless
cflrontcry, even though his millions
could elect him, would give us tho
most corrupt Administration the
country has ever known."
Gomh-n Wouns.?"Until every
question arising out of the rebellion
relating to the integrity of tho nation
and to human rights has been settled,
and settled rightly, no man ought to
be trusted with power in this country
who, during the struggle for the na
tion's life, was unfaithful to the Union
and liberty."?-Rutherford B. Ilayet,
in a speech in 1807.
"I would prefer to go into this war,
if I knew I was to die or bo killed in
tho course of it, rather than live
through and after it without taking
any part iu it."?Rutherford B. llayct
