"BALDY". MONSON'S SCALP. 1
How it Was Won by "Lucky" Dald
win In a Faro Game.
"During the time that gambling was
in its glory on the Pacific coast." saidI
an old Californian, "'Lucky' Baldwin
was easily the most daring chance tak
er ef all the notable argonauts. Bald
win did some amazing stunts in that i
day of all day and all night drinking,
when overmellow men. most of them
with riches so suddenly a equired that
they hadn't hid time to stop and figure
on how much they possessed, tried to
outvie one another in the capers they
cut with the Lady Fortune.
"One night in the late fifties 'Lucky.'
as he was then called, walked into the
famous old Alcatraz club on Kearney
street in San Francisco after having I
I been religiously shunning his bed for
about three days and nights runn!ng
and in that shape 'Lucky' was, in those
days, ready for anything.
"A famous dealer in the Alcatraz
club-the biggest gambling establish
ment on the coast at the time-was
'Daldy' Monson, so called because his
poll was bare of hair as a pat of butter,
except for a tiny patch that remained
right on the crown of his head. It had
been a cowlick, and, with consistent
stubbornness, it had refused to go when
the rest of 'Daldy's' hair had departed.
"Baldwin strolled over to where
'Baldy' Monson was acting as lookout
for the faro game, preparatory to tak
ing hold of the box himself, and draw
ing Monson's head down 'Lucky' began
to count the hairs that the dealer had
left on the top of his head.
"'How many have you got left?'
Baldwin asked of Monson.
"'Eighteen of 'em an inch or more
long, the last time they were counted,'
soberly replied 'Baldy.' 'There may be
some trifling short ones besides in the
tuft, but they don't figure.'
"'Eighteen, eh?' said 'Lucky.' 'Well,
it's just foolishness to be packing
around only eighteen hairs. Turn me
the king, open, for $1S,000, and if I win
your eighteen hairs go with the pot
"'Baldy' glanced inquiringly at the
proprietor of the club, who was stand
Ing by, and his employer gave him the
nod. Monson took the dealer's chair
and began the deal. The king won
down near the middle of the box, and
the proprietor of the club scrawled a
check for $1,000 on the Bank of Cali
fornia and handed it over to baldwin.
"'Lucky' snipped the eighteen hairs
off 'Baldy' Monson's head with the
razor edged- blade of his pocketknife,
had the housekeeper at his hotel tie
them up in tiny pink ribbon, with a
double bow to set them off, and ex
hibited the tuft in the window of the
Bella Union, labeled 'Baldy Mlotison's
Scalp.' "-Washingtoa Post.
Eceentricities In Palaces.
The Russian Empress Anne built a
great palace of ice and on occasions
when the fancy seized her punished
several of her dainty courtiers by com
pelling them to pass the night in this
great chamber of state, where they
were almost frozen to death.
The Czar Paul, ancestor of the pres
ent emperor of Russia. constructed a
room formed entirely of huge mirrors,
where he spent hours walking to and
fro in f-ull uniform-i-a singular taste
for the ugliest man in Russia.
One of the native princes of Java
cooled his palace by making a stream
fall in a cascade over the gateway, and
the Indian despot Tippo Sahib placed
beside his dinner table a life size fig
ure of 'a tiger devouring an' English
officer, the roar of the beast and the
shrieks of the victim being Imitated
by hidden machinery.

MANNERS IN BUSINESS.
Brains and Good Deportment a Win
The value of brains in business can
not be overestimated, of course; but
neither can the vaue of manners.
Doit make the error of supposing that
brains are everything. You may have
the best set of brains in the town, but
if you haven't the manners of a gentle
man nobody is going to appreciate
you. Your manner is the outward in
dication of what you are within in the
estimate of most people, and if the
manner is disagreeable few will take
the trouble to examine into you any
The consensus of general opinion is
that the man who goes about with
porcupine quills as his manners hasn't
any brains worth bothering about. Did
you never notice that the men who em
ploy large forces of intelligent people
look at an applicant closely, ask a few
seemingly unimportant questions and
promptly employ or dismiss him? They
don't sound his brain depth; they don't
obtain his biography; they don't inquire
into his social standing; they size him
up from his manners, and if he is brass
on the surface they don't look for gold
The employer knows that if an appli
cant's manner strikes him favorably it
will also favorably strike people with
whom he comes in contact in his work.
And nobody knows better than a big
business man that a favorable first im
pression mca:s half the sale. People are
apt to think that if there is any place
where mann:i-s are of little consequence
is is in business, where cold calculation
so largely takes the place of feeling.
But the truth is that nowhere else are
manners of such importance as in ev
eryday dealings. There is no capital
and equipment any young man can
have that will pay him better than
good manners. There is no possible
calling for which this does got better
fit him. If he has brains the world
owes him sc.mething, but unless he has
good manners he will have a hard time
collecting it-Kansas City World.
A WHISTLER PICTURE.
The Dramatic Manner of Its Flinish
and an Anticlimax.
Whistler was one day visited by a
fore.ign artist, an old acquaintance,
with whom Whistler had not as yet
gvrareled. He was received with gen
1i:ne cordiality, and, artist-like, be ran
j 5und the studio looking at everything.
-..te small picture seemed to charm him
especially, and be said, "Now that is
one of your good ones." "Don't look at
it, dear boy," said Whistler airily, "it's
not finished." "Finished!" said the
visitor. "Why, it is the most carefully
finished picture of yours that I have
ever seen.' "Don't look at it!" per
sisted Wh,-stler. "You are doing in
justice to yourself, you are doing in
jus lee to my picture, and you are do
ing injustice to me!" The visitbr looked
bewildered, when Whistler, in a the
atrical tone, cried out: "Stop! I'll finish
it now!" Then he procured a very
small camel's hair brush, fixed it on a
long and slender handle, mixed a little
speck of paint en his palette, dipped
the tip of his brush into it, and then,
standing off from his picture and with
the action of a fencer with his rapier,
he lunged for-ward and touched the
picture in one spot with his pigment.
"Now it's finished." said he. "Now you
may look at it." This was all highly
dramatic, and indeed very well acted,
but, as in the case of some stage plays,
the final act of Whistler's performance
proved to be an anticlimax. The for
eign artist took his leave, but, finding
that he had left his umbrella behind
him, called for it next day. The serv
ant, recognizing him, told him that Mr.
Whistler had gone out for the day, but
invited him to go to the studio and
seek his umbrella. H~e went there and
found it, but also took the opportunity
of having one more look at the picture
which had been "finished" for his spe
cial benefit the day bcfore, and thenI
he saw that the little dab of wet paint
which Whistler had so dramatically
put on he had afterward scrupulously
wiped off again!-Frederick Keppel in
Hlidden Water Supply.
The investigation of a neglected
spring or rivulet may bring to light a
valuable supply of water for gardening
or domestic purposes. A surprising
quantity is often obtainable by in
stalling a ram at some seemingly in
significant source. A ram is cheap. be
cause the first expense is the last, there
being no cost of maintenance, and it is!
satisfactory, because the ram requires
no attention. Once started, it takes
entire care of itself.-Country Life In
Twenty Shiots In His Head.
At the present time there is a keeper
on a Hlertfordshire estate who has

thirty years ago this man was acci

there were twenty-tw-o holes in the hat
he wore, which is preserved to this
day. The injured ma:a never had the
shots extracted, was long between life

no such security is essential. You may
leave your luggage anywhere for any
length of time and be quite sure of
finding it untouched on your return,
and your purse full of money would be
just as secure under similar circum

and valuables in holes in the ground
and cover them with a big leaf. Such
treasure is sacredly respected by all
who pass It, but in the rare event of
a man wishing to borrow of his neigh

THE FIRE CROWD.
'As a nuie It Likes a Big Blaze and
"There is one curious thing connect
ed wiith fires," said a thoughtful man,
"and that is the fact that while the
fireman is anays a hero in the public
estimate and w.lel men and women
have all kinds of admiration for these
brave fellows they yet wan.t to see
them get the worst of it in the fight
against the flames. It is an interesting
fact that the average man and woman
are not at all anxious to see the firemen
get the fire under control. They would
much rather see the flames spread un
-til the affair developed into an im
mense conflagration. Mind you, the
trait is not at all vIcious. There is no
malice in It. It is simply the love of
excitement and adventure, things that
are so deep rooted in human nature
that we may not control them at will.
Besides, we want to develop our he
roes to the limit. We want our fire
men to fight a good fight against long
odds and under great difficulties. We
cannot quarrel with this feeling in the
human makeup. After all, it is what
one may call the poetry of human na
ture, and without it this old system of
ours would be dull and prosaic indeed.
Of course, you will always find a few
persons around a fire who are directly
concerned In the fight the firemen are
making. They want to see the flames
put out. In the case of some of the
spectators it means bread and meat
It means the loss of a position or may
be the loss of home. But I was speak
ing of the vast majority of men and
women who gather to witness a fire.
The fire is the thin;g with them. They
want to see a big blaze and bear the
crash of the walls and all that sort of
thing. Did you ever take the trouble
to analyze a fire crowd? In the first
place an alarm of tire will draw a
crowd quicker than anything In the
world. Whenever the bells begin to
clang and the engines go rushing down
the street you will see men, women and
children rushing this way and that in
order to see as much as may be seen
of the fire and fire fighters. The hour
of 'day or night does not make so much
difference. The crowd will get there
in some way and for some reason,
though the great majority of the per
sons have no sort of Interest other than
Idle curiosity. Once on hand, they
want to see a good fire, and that's why
I say they want to see the flames get
the best of the firemen. They will go
away and talk about what a game fight
the fire laddie3 made. Human nature
is a curious thing, is it not?"-New Or
SAMURAI AND JIU-JITSU.
The Most Wonderful System of Ath
leties In the World.
More than 2,5OO years ago there
sprang Into existence in Japan an or
der of knights who were known as the
samurai. To them was imparted all
the learning, the polite breeding and*
the forms of superiority that mark the
gentleman. They were skilled in arms
and versed in the arts of war, for they
were the emperor's fighting men, and
none but they were allowed to bear
As there could not always be war on
tand, and as it was considered be
neath the dignity of the samurai to go
nto any ordinary callings, it came
about naturally that these little knights
found much idle time on their hands.
Being men of war, they turned their
attention to athletic feats.
One among the samurai conceived
the idea of learning by practice the
location of every sensitive nerve and
muscle in the body. After that he dis
