As numerous refoiences iiavo been
made lately to stud nor-c poker, the
following description of tiie fascinating
game, taken from an exchangi, is re
produced. It was evidently written by
some fellow who had run up pretty
hard against the buried card.
Stud-horse poker is dangerous, be
cause it has the air of innocence and
fair play. Five cards are dealt, the
same as in other poker, with this ex
ception that all but ono caid are ex
posed, and it is upon the strength or
weakness of this hidden card tii.it the
players win or loso their money, as the
case may be. Tor instance, one player
may have an ace in sight, another a
king, and so on. Should any one of
these pair the "down card" it would
constitute the strongest hand. 'Ihe
players can only judge from tho cards
throw n around by the dealer as to
what pairs arc out. 'J ho highest card
or pair in sight must do tho betting.
This gives the player holding a strong
pair, one of tho cards of which is ex
posed, tho other hidden, a decided ad
vantage, as iho others may not bo play
ing him for a pair. 'Iho tables form a
semi-circle, and are so arranged that
ten or a elozen men can play at one
time. The dealer, with his chips, sits
in tho center, and requires each man to
"anto" one chip, which entitles him to
draw two cards, the first one of vvhioh
is dealt face down, the second being
exposed. Tho betting then begins and
continues until the cards aro all dravvn
out. This looks like a very fair game,
and probably would be were it not for
the "rake-off," or percentage, and oth
er little points whicli aro kept a secret
among tho favorites of tho green-cloth
Tho percentage taken by tho house
absorbs at least one-half, and is so
great that old and experienced gam
blers will not play their money against
tho game. Where tho greatest evil ex
ists is tho cheapness of the game. The
chips in tho majority of tho houses are
sold at tho rate of two for 5 cents, tho
player being required to buy 50 cents'
worth at a time, or as manymoio as he
desires. Should luck run in his favor
he may make a good winning off a half-
dollar, in nine cases out ot ten it goes
the other way.
This, then, is w here the fascination
comes in. Each player imagines that
he can play the game better than some
one else, and that there is a fortune in
store for him if ho only has nerve and
follows it up. Young men who could
not be induced to play their money
against other games of chanco aro
daily being caught in the mifshes at
"stud-poker," and once in, they find it
hard to extricate themselves.
"Fifty cents' worth, just for amuse
ment," says tho smiling tempter; and
the half-dollar is exchanged for a small
stack of ivories. The curds are elcalt,
and tho beginner, at the end of several
plays, finds that his capital has been in
creased fourfold. "Gieat game!" cries
tho novice. 'Xo good," growls tho
capper, who lias been losing. "Try
again," suggests the dealer; "perhaps
xou will have better luck next time."
lie does try again, and the rule invari
ably is that either he or tho dealer has
all the chips when the game closes.
'Ihesc, then, are the recruiting,-posts
for the gainblitig-liouscs. Let a man
onco become a vu tim to "stud-poker,'
and it will cinch him like the Old Man
of the Sea. The best friend that comes
to tlie rescue ol these poor fellows is
the law. It is the only thing that can
save them from utter ruin. Virginia

The fruit-grower needs to have a
courageous heart, and an abounding
faith in his pursuit. Ho has numerous
enemies with which to cpntend and to
conquer; unfavorable seasons are not
iufiequcnt; numerous insects and para
sitic fungi are constantly disputing pos

him of all or nearly all profits. But

A Joke on Spinner.
Another story comes up of ex-Treasurer
Spinner. Of course his curious
signature on greenbacks made many
people desirous of obtaining it in an
other form, and he received hundreds
of requests auuttally for his autograph.
For a time he answered each one in an
autograph note, bnt the labor involved
became so great that finally he had a
printed form prepared running: "Your
request of such a elate is hcreoy com
plied with." liicn ivhen an autograph
request came in he simply signed his
blank form and let it go at that. One
day a t ill.raw-boned countryman vvalk
edinto his office. "Morning," said he.
"Good morning," said Spinner.looking
up. "I cotno for that place you
promised me," said the countryman,
after an aw kward pause. "Place ?"
said Spinner, crossly; "I promised you
no place." "Yes. "you did," insisted
the country man, stoutly; "I've got
your promise in your own handwrit
ing." With th it ho hauled out one of
Spinner's autograph replies: "Your re
quest of such a date," etc. "But, man
alive," aiel Spinner, "that was in re
sponse to a request from you for my
autograph." "Xo, 'twasn t," said the
man; "1 never asked no autograph. I
want a place; that's what I wrote for."
Spinner had the man's letter hunted
up. Sure enough, it was a formal ap
plication for a place. "Here," said
Spinner, emptying into his big hand all
tho money ho had in his pocket.
"Here's some money for you. 1 can't

He w rote his ow n biography and left
it vv here the edition w ill never grow
dim. The alphabet lie used was made
of the rivers, tho tilains, tho forests,
and the eternal heights. He started in
his youth with his face to the West;
started toward where no trails had
been blazed, where there was naught
to meet him but the wilderness, the
wild beast, mid tho still more savage
man. Ho made his lonely camps by
tho rivers, and now it is a "fiction with
those who sleep on the same grounds
that the waters in their How murmur
the great path-finder's name. He fol
lowed tho water-courses to their sour
ces, and guidcil by them, learned
where tlie mountains bent their crests
to make possible hi;rhwas for the feet
of tncn. He climbed the mountains
and "disputed with the eagles of the
crags" for points of observation; he
met the wild beast and subdued him;
ho mot tho savage of the plains and of
tho hills, and, in his own person, gave
him notice of his sovereignty in skill,
in cunning and in courage. To the
red man he was the voi e of fate. In
him they saw a materialized foreboding
of their destiny. To them ho was a
voice crying tho coming of a race
against winch they could not prevail;
before which they were to be swept

A Cat Starts a Clock.
William Ewing, of Conemaugh is a
highly respected gentleman ot sixty
years of age and is a member in good
standing of tlie Disciples Church. The
necessity for these statements vv ill ap
pear right aw u. In Mr. Ewing s
house were two clocks, one down
stairs and the other up, which had not
moved for two vears. A tinker was
recently e ailed in to lepair the elovvn
stairs clock. While ho was at work
Mr. Ewing's cat, a very intelligent ani
mal, jumped upon tho table on which
the clock stood and closely watched all
that was done. After the clock had
been fixed and made to strike again
the cat disappoareel. Some time Inter
the clock up stairs was hcarel to strike.
The members of the family, in great
surprise, hastened up stairs and were
astonished to find that tlie cat had
opened the clock door and, by insert
ing its pavvs among its works, had
actually overcome the obstacle to its
running. 'I hey stood and watched it
and saw it strike the pendulum with
one of its front paws, just as the tinker
had done with the down-stairs clock.
'Ihe cat did not set the hands, for the
reason, pcihaps, that it did not know
the precise tune. Johnstown ('a.) Tri
