NEW GAME ON TRAINS.
Man With Cards and Far Too Sure
A forlorn individual, with a ''tele
scope'' grip in one hand and an emp
ty pocketbook in the other, enlighten
ed the detectives at the Union depot
the other day concerning the latest
wrinkle in confidence games. The
melancholy one had just been reliev
ed of $50 by a couple of chance no
quaintances on a train.
''This is how it happened,'' said
the traveler: 'I was coming froia Ok
lahoma, and after leaving Fort Scott
sat in the smoker with a man who
got oi at that station. We chatted
a bit and were watehing a game ot
cribbage among some traveling mien
across the aisle when a man came
through the car with a pack of play
ing cards in his hand. IIe stopped by
the cribbage players and asked them
to buy the cards. They refused, so he
turned to our sent.
'' ' Gentlemen,' lie said, 'I'd like
to sell these cards. They are of unusu
ally good quality, and I'll sell thent
for the pri of an ordinary deck.'
''Let's s e,' said my seat mate,
taking the Iek. 'I don't see anything
remarkable ihout these. They look
like ordin..y 25-cent cards to me.'
'' 'All right,' replied the owner ot
the cards .i an offended tone; 'if
you can't listinguish the difference
in the quality of cards, there's no
use in my wasting time talking -to

however, saw the card fall, and said,
'' 'Those cards may be extra fine,
but I'll het there's not a full pack
'The owner of the cards glared in
dignamtly at my seat mate.
''"You say you will?' lie exclaimed.
'Now, what wil vou bet on tlat?'
"'My companioi hiad already cover
ed the eard on tie floor with his foot.
'Oh' I'll call anvthin- you've

"Without more ado the card sales

ainouiced that lie didn't like to take
eandy from infants, but that he would

pasteboards in his hand composed a
full -deck of fifty-two cards, not
counting the joker. This, of course,
looked like Ciristmas expenses to us,
who knew that one card of the pack
lay on the floor.
" I let you ini on half tle bet,"
said my seat mate, generously, and,
of course. I jumped at the chance.
"The money was posted, the cards
were counted and the deck found to
be complete. My seat mate and the
card salesman left the train at the
nlext, station. Of course I see it all
now-that is, all but one thing:

there was something' odd in a man
having $100 who had a moment be

The American Output.
American ingenuity, aided by Oer
man detail, brought this country
quickly to the front in pencil mann
racturme. Our enomous forests of cedar
and the discovery of graphite, with
the introduction of marvelous maclh
inery and all kinds of labor-saving
devices, have brought the daily output
up to 1,000,000 iencils a day. There
are salesmen whose annual bookings
amount to half a million dollars each.
They give away hundreds of thous
ands of pencils to adv'ertise thecir
business. Some use pencils as per

sonal cards, and if met in a causal
way will surely have every pocket

pretty peneils, worth perhaps half, a
