Bewildering Results He Achieved In
His First Game.
More than forty years ago in Sau
Francisco tin? olfiee ? taiT adjourned up
3U conclusion of its w-rk at J o'clock
in tlw morning to a ;..vrit bowling es
tablishment where there were twelve
alleys. I was invited, rather perfunc
torily and as a matter of etiquette by
which I mean that I was invited po
litely, but not urgently. But when I
dillidently declined with thanks ami
explained that I knew nothing about
the game those lively young fellows
became at once eager and anxious and
urgent to have my society. This nat
tered me, for I perceived no trap, and
I innocently and graU-fully accepted
their invitation. I was given an alley
all to myself. The boys explained the
game to me, nncl they also explained to
me that there would be tin hour's play
and that the player who r.eored the
fewest ten strikes in the hour would
have to provide oysters nud Ix-er for
the combination. This disturlied mo
very seriously, since it promised me
bankruptcy, and I was sorry that this
detail had been overlooked in the be
ginning. But my pride would not al
low mc to buck out now. so I stayed
In nud did wjiat I could to look satis
fied and glad I had come. It is not
likely that I looked as contented, as I
wanted to, but the others looked glad
enough to make up for It, for they
were quite unable to hide their evil
Joy. They showed me bow to stand
and how to stoop and how to aim the
ball and how to let fly, and then the
The results were astonisalng. In
my ignorance I delivered the balls In
apparently every w ay except the right
; one, out no matter miring halt an
( hour I never started a ball down the
t alley tlTut didn't score a ten strike
every time at the other end. The oth
ers lost their grip early and their Joy
along with it. Now and then one of
them got a ten strike, but the occur
rence was so rare that it made no
show alongside of my giant score. The
boys surrendered at the end of the
half hour and put on their coats and
gathered around me and in courteous
but sufficiently definite language ex
pressed theis opinion of an experience
worn and seasoned expert who would
stoop to lying and deception in order
to rob kind and well meaning friends
who had put their trust In him under
tne delusion that be was honest and
honorable. I was not able to convince
eiiaracter was gone, ana tney reruseu

The proprietor of the piace stood bv
for awhile saying nothing; then he
came to my defense, rie said: "It looks
like a mystery, gentlemen, but it Isn't
a mystery after It's explained. That
is a grooved alley; you've only to start
a ball down It any way you please
and the groove will do the rest; it will
slam the ball against the northeast
curve cf the head pin every time, and
nothing can save the ten from going
It was true. The boys made the ex
periment, and they found that there
was no art that could send a ball
down that alley and fail to score a
ten strike with it. When I had told
those boys that I knew nothing about
that game I was speaking only the
truth. But it was ever thus all through
my life whenever I have diverged
from custom and principle and uttered
a truth the rule has bejn that the
heart hadn't strength of mind enough
