"An ewployee at the Boston and Mon
tana smelter caum in, and, holding up
a 2 bill, announced that ho had a big
noto to meet ia Jin Murray's bank and
was fToinst to win it out. He said that
it was for !.S(SS. 88, and he was poing to
i play the eijrht sixit ut faro and nothing
i else. He seemed to be Well known, and
everybody smiled. He put a copper on
i his !f2 bill and placed it on the eight j

stay, and again the eight lost Ho
I knocked tho copper off, and the eight
won. IIo pnt it back, and it lost

four successive turns in the deal. The
pi aver let his $32 remain ou tho dead
" 'Ain't you afraid Eomcbody'll cinch
that for a sloepcr?' inquired tho dealer
'Not much !' was the reply. . 'And
I ain't going to touch it till you make
mc draw down or I win what I want '
"The dealer looked at him, thought
of tho chances of splits, I suppose, and
quietly remarked, 'That goes.
"The very first turn on tho nest deal
the man coppered the $32, and the eight
lost He didn't take the button off, and
the eight lof t out. Mister man had
$512 ou the card. Tho dealer got up,
and another took his place. Tho man
never turned a hair and was as cool as

box, every ono expected to see him
knock the copper off. Ho didn't touch
it The top card was a king. The deal

out, and yon may break me if the eight

now,' said the smelter man, and be roll

But the Reporter Failed to Get

"I once had an experience," said an
old ncwspapcr mau at the Press club to
a reporter, "with the la: Senator
Vanco which I nhall never forget It was
during Crisp's lirst contest for the speak
ership, and. as you all probably remem
ber, every newspaper man iu town was
hustling for inside news. Tho sources
of this, as usual in such cases, were very
few, and Senator Vance, who w;:s act
ing in the capacity of an advisor to tiie
nominating caucus, had to spend most
of his time dodging journalists.
"So wary did he become that ho dis
continued taking his lunch in the senate
restaurant and had it served in a com
mittee ror.ia. One day, however, I
caught a glimpsa of him passing through
one of the lower corridors oi the house
side. Determined not to let him escape
me, I at once hastened forward, and iu
tho most innocent manner possible be
gan asking him about his health, which
was rather bad at tho time. He answer
ed ail my questions iu tho kindest
manner possible and was about to leave
when I said:
" 'Oh, by the way, senator, who do
you think will get the nomination?'
" 'I don't know exactly,' he replied,
'but they will have to fight if they want '
"Certain now of my information, I
began to sco tiie letter I was going to re
ceive from the homo office, after they
had published my hfa scoop, telling me
in tho most flattering terms that tho
pajier had decided to raise my salary on
account of my gxxl work.
" 'Which side, senator?' I asked, al
most in a whisper for fear eoiue one
would be lurking iu tho dark recesses
and hear the reply which was to make
me tho laost noted hustler for news in
the ranks of journalism.
" 'Both sides, ' he replied as ho disap

They are a difficult brunch to t fady,
for the descriptions aro shrou:!od iu a
mysterious language that needs nu un
abridged dictionary to translate it, and
a good microscope, is i;utes.-ary if ovu
wishes to examine their internal struc
ture aud spores. But they are a delight
ful and easy branch of science to bu
coiuo acquainted with by observation.
They aie to bo found nil the ytar
round on stones and ft nee rails and n
trees. They arc easy to mount aud aro
so fascinatingly ugly or beautiful that
they make an iutenrsting collection. In
almost any wild bit of country th re
are from 50 to 70 kinds to be found, and
even iu the most civilized place, nt one's
own hearth, there are sure to bo seven
or eight species growing ou tho sticks of
wood laid for the fire. They ro so like
aud yet unlike that they sharpen the
powers of comparison and observation

common lichen called, very appropriate

one visits will have some irregular cir
cular stains upon it, especially if the
bark is quite smooth, and in the ceutor
there wiil be some lwown or black or
white specks. It is easy to collect such
crustaceous lichens by slicing off a thin
