"I suppose Senator Wolcott is one of
tbo coolest men living when engaged In
a game of chance." said Albert Watson
of Denver. "Like most men whose early
manhood has been spent on the frontier,
be learned the value of a poker hand and
the best way to keep cases as soon as he
learned law, and he was known as a 'lim
it' player all over Colorado before his
fame as lawyer had spread outside of
Denver. When playing faro, he always
did and does yet bet as much on the
turn of card as the dealer will allow
him to, and when be sits in a poker
game the other people want to keep
their eyes wide open and play their
cards mighty close up to their chests.
. "Wolcott once found himself in a
game of poker where three of the other
players wep playing a sure game. They

As cold weather approaches women
try todevise means for preventing hands
and lips from chapping. An excellent
remedy to prevent chapping is cold
cream. A manicure says that it whitens
the skin more than any preparation. It
has taken the placoof tho old time rem
edy mutton suet. It should be well
rubbed into the skin, and gloves, pref
erably white, slipped on. Tho palms of
the gloves vhould bet-lit in several places
to allow tho air and prr-vent cramps of
tho muscles, and the linger tips clipped
off. Vaselintihou!d never be allowed to
touch tlio hands. It turns the pfcin yel
low and leaves a stain on the nails that
is hard to clear away.
In winter cold water shonld be nsed
sparingly. Its action roughens the skin

In a New England courtroom one aft
ernoon an cnergetio counsel was setting
forth in no measured terms his opinion
of certain testimony which had been
given by one of tho witnesses. As he
talked he gesticulated freely and was
particularly lavish in the use of the
forefinger of his right hand, which as
sumed a decidedly threatening aspect
as ho progressed in his speech.
Suddenly a tall, lank countryman.
who was directly iu a lino with this
warning forefinger, rose from his seat
among the jurymen.
"I ie.st tell ye what 'tis, " said bo.
'I ain't done nothin I'm ashamed of. I
ain't done nothin no way of no kind, so
fur's I know, an I ain't a-goiu to set
hero an bo abused. Ef you say another
word, I'll jest light out fer home.
"My dear sir,' stammerer! the conn
sel, "my remarks were not intended for
any member of tho jury. They reterrod
entirely to the witness. "
"Well, then, you jest quit a-p intin
your finger at mo when yon re talkin
like that," said the iauk juryman witft
out appearing to be much mollified by
this statement "If yon do it agin. 1 11
break un his 'ere court, or my name
ain't Joshuy Bowker. "
And with a determined mien and fire
in bis eye Joshua Bowker at last subsid

rangue without further interruption.
