Pointers on Poker.
A veteran gamester has figured out
the possibilities of poker. He makes the
chances of helping a pair on a three card
draw one to eight for a triplet, for another
pair the same, for a full hand one
to sixty-one, and for four of a kind one to
346. The chances of improvement are
thus a little more than one to five. If
you go in on a pair of jacks and three
players are against you, which is the average
with six players, the average
chances are that you are playing against
one better hand and two poorer ones.
When you reach aces, you have in all
probability the best hand. The mathematical
expectation of a flush when you
draw to four cards of a suit is one to five.
A straight flush is obtainable once in 300,
000 deals. To get it pat takes twice as
The Henry V. Kiss.
The Henry V. kiss differs from other
osculatory hilarity in this that it does not

of a yeast jug, but hangs fire like a
lingering illness. It is deep and resonant
like the explosion of a bass fiddle
through the bung hole of a life size hogshead.
The Abbott kiss cannot hold a
candle to the Henry the Five Times.
The Abbott is a cross between the agitation
of a suction pump and the guffaw
of a jackass. The Henry the Y. smacks
of an aromatic flavor that reminds one t)f
the soft sighs of autumnal breezes wafted
from orange groves heavily laden with
sweet-scented and browsing
cows. A sense of giddv dissipation
steals over the victim's mind and intoxicates
him -with a delirium that makes
him see all sorts of queer things which
he has no right to see. To indulge requires
caution and a second party the
