Cheating at Cards. ,
Tho plan of dealing over a largo,
highly polished, silver cigar case is
good, but old. Of course tho cigar
caso shows the dealer iu its burnished
surfaco what cards ho is giving tho
players, and ho knows better whether
to stand on his own hand or not Ac
cording to a competent authority,
while there is no game at which ono
may not bo cheated, at ecarle ono may
bo cheated iu somo fifteen or twenty
different ways. Ono gallant gambler
played against a Greek, and his frieuds
warned him that ho was being dupod.
Ho answered in a loud voice: "Mon
sieur trielie! tnais je gais Lieu quo
monsier tricho! Seullo sment il est
convenu quo chut(uo fois quo jo lo
prendral, jo niarquurai un point!"
This was, indeed, a sportsmanlike
handicap, and argued a great lovo for
the game in the player, and a cynical
indifference to tho character of an an
tagonist Tho talo of tho old general
in a country town is also good, though
rather well known. This veteran
cheated, habitually and execrably. It
was thought "good form" to take no
notice of his exploits, but ono day a
small civilian, a stranger to the club, '
observed: "Why, general, you are
cheating!" "Yes, sir," said the gen
eral, who stammered dreadfully, "yes,
sir, I know very well I'm cheating,
but I ddd don't liko to bo t t t
told it" a remark to which there is
no very obvious repartee. A splendid
failure to cheat was that of the French
Greek. Ko ono had suspected him; he
usually won some 50 louis every time
he took tho bunk, and on ono occasion
ho left the theater at Nice in tho mid
dle of a play and went on to tho club.
There he took tho bank, won on an
eight and on a nine. Then ho offered
to "give cards;" his opponent accept
ed, and tho banker laid down a card
marked "Theatre Francais de Nice."
It was the ticket of re-admission in
case he had wanted to go back to tho
play. Obviously this could not have
formed part of a normal pack, and as
obviously the banker had taken it out
of his pocket by mistake." Tlie Satur
Twisting the Mule's Tall.
Til make it $5 if any man'll twist
his tail," challenged a ship chandler's
agent, as the mule beat a tattoo against
a post on the pier. "Yea, I'll make it
"Stuff!" sneered a lazy-looking vag
rant, a little apart from "the crowd.
"Who says 'stuff?' " demanded the
agent, in a voice like a prize fighter's.
"Maybe you'd liko to twist that mule's
"I think I could do it"
"Here's f 20 that says you can't"
"I'll go ye."
The money was put into tho hand3
of a ship's supply contractor, and the
details were properly arranged. The
lazy man was to twjst the mule's tail
if he could get near enough with all
his strength, and was to escape un
hurt. The crowd was to stand at a re
spectful distance and see fair play.
Iho lazy man swung his coat over his-.
arm, borrowed a chew of navy plug,
and walked down the pier. Tho crowd
followed slowly. The niulo showed
a strong desire to cat not only tho ap
proaching men, but the pier itself. But
his viciousness was restrained by a
strong rope halter. The lazy man
tossed his coat upon a barrel and
grasped the mule's tail with both
hands. Tho crowd held its breath.
The twister wound the tail into a hard
knot and pulled tho mule from side to
side, as far as the halter would permit
The mule made no effort to resent tho
indignity. The lazy man again threw
his coat over his arm, and, taking the
money from tho contractor, sauntered
up Montague street. Tho crowd wa3
"Did you seo that?" at length asked
one of the men of a stevedore who
leaned over a barrel.
"Yes, I saw it."
"Mule hadn't any spunk, had he?"
"Hadn't he P Why, man, thats tho
crossest mule in Brooklyn 'n the big
"Then why in thunder didn't he
lift that man acrossCiovernor's Island?"
"Well, it is liko this: If you owned
that mule 'n had him trained to do tho
same trick once a week, ho wouldn't
kick, would he? Not much. That
mule knows his owner, now, make no
mistake." New York Times.
His Dead Child.
The other day a New (Means man
had occasion to go over tho lake. On
his way back, and when tho train stop
ped at tho bay, ho noticed a man get
ting into the car in front of him with a
littTo baby in his arms. After tho train
had got under way tho conductor canio
and said: "Come with me; I want to
show you tho saddest, strangest sight
you ever saw," and ho led tho way in
to tho next car. There sat tho man
whom ho had noticed with the babe;
his precious little bundle lay quiet ou
tho seat in front of him, aud as these
other two men watched he leaned over
and lookod long and earnestly iu tho
little faco, and then kissed tho frail
finger-tips ho held so gfiitly in his
haud. "That baby's dead," said tho
conductor. "It died this nioruiug at
the bay. He couldn't bear to put it in a
colUn, becauso then it would havo to go
without hitu in the baggage-car, aud so
ho is just carrying it homo to New Or
leans iu his amis." Stricken to tlio
heart's coro ho sat there quiet and un
heeding, watching over his dead child,
kissing tho lingers that would nover
again softly clasp his, looking down
upon tho white lids that had closed
over tho bright eyes as tho petals of a
Bensitivo ilower closo at night-time
over its delicate heart, and the world
was uothing to him. New Orleans
