The Scepter Passes from the
Card Box to the Dice.
A REMARKABLE REVOLUTION.

of a mild morning. He is sprawled on bis
knees and left band. With bis right hand be
tosses to the pavement a pair of dice. A
dozen other street Arabs are gathered about.
"Seven it is; gimme der stuff."
He grabs at a little pile of pennies, bat a

The onlookers take sides, a fight follows,

A CINCINNATI GAME.
From The Cincinnati Commercial Gazette.
There are carpets on the floors, and mirrors
and sideboards and pictures galore. In place
of the casual sidewalk or hallway there is a
green cloth table on which the uncertain
cubes disport themselves, and the cash seen
lying about is silver, gold and paper. The
penny is out of doors.
It would be difficult for one unacquainted
with the undercurrent oflUuVto imagine
the revolution which the recent adoption of
craps as a parlor" game has brought about.
Faro was thought to be the final and greatest
work of the godden of Fortune, but that is
so no longer, and there is simply one reason.
assuming both schema equally fair, for the
change. It Is this:
The player oau get "quicker actiou" for his
And now something about the way in
which the new game Is played.
The- table is a big, oblong affair, covered
with green baize cloth. Sitting on one side
is tne Daniter. To his right is a check rack
and a pile of bills and coin. Directly In front
oi me Banner ana cbalked on the cloth are
the numbers 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 8 and 10. A
"maTker" or counter lies close by. and when
a player throws a number the banker places
the counter on that numeral. A little fur
ther out, and running from the rack all the
way around to the banker's left band, are
two circular parallel lines, about two inches
apart. Within this space are placed all the
bets, save those hereafter specified.
. Directly In front of the rack are the num
bers 6, , 8 and . - To the left of the banker
and Just outside the semicircle is another
quartet of the same numbers, 5, 6, 8 and 9.
Seated at the two sides and front of the table
are the players. The dice go round from the
banker's left to the right The first to tale
the cabes lays down his bet in the space be
tween the semicircular lines. All those who
think Tm will win follow his example. The
others do not bet. The player makes bis
throw. If the spots aggregate 7 or 11 he
and all who have wagered win. If two
aces, two sixes, or an ace and a der.ee come
out they lose. But should the atTn of the
spots aggregate 4, 5, o, 8, 9 or 10 the banker
- places a counter on the proper figure before
blm. It is a record of the number thrown
To win now the player must throw the same
number before be throws the number 7, the
bank betting that he will throw 7 before he
throws the number marked. Jfow for the
use of the four numbers 5, B, 8 and 0, placed
at each end of the table. The players can
bet that the man with the dice will throw
either of these numbers before be throws 7,
and the play continues until he his thrown
7. A player continue to handle the dice
until he has thrown 7 before the number he
began on. Then the next gambler takes the

pidity of the dice throwing, coupled with the
number of people engaged in placing wagers.
makes It necessary for the dealer to have
from one to three assistants to look after the
marker, watch the bets, pay losings and pull
in the winnings. Recently at a game In
which the visitor met with phenomenal luck
he started with a $10 bet, and by doubling
acn time be won became the winner of
nearly S10,UX) iu half an boor. In faro even
-the '.'high rolling" games have a limit of 150.
but in craps there is no limit save the size of
the bank roll. The player makes bis wager,
throws the dice, and wins or loses within the
minute. Sometimes he departs with hun
dreds in his pocket, but more often be retires
with liltle or nothing.
Oontz, by the way, is the name under which
the new form of craps was introduced to the
public, but this title has not met with popu
lar favor, and the original designation re
mains in use.
Meanwhile there are many "old fashioned"
sports who adhere to their first love. Faro
bas been their pastime and source of revenue
for years, and they will have none of the new
tangled wiles lor luring monoy from the
. pockets of the wealthy, the unwary or the
desperate, it will be long. Indeed, before
ci sps gets so thoroughly systematized as faro.
The older gome runs through a series oi
gradations which place It within the reach of
all who are foolish enough to risk their cash
on the turn of a card.
In the swell club bouse one finds colored
servants in livery, elegant aurtundings,
cboios liquors and cigars, courteous employes
and ivory chips worth in money when pur
chased for betting purposes from $1.25 to $30
each. The man who saunters in, gives bis
coat to a waiter, buys 1500 worth of counters
and wins three or four thousand dollars in the
course of a sitting, stroll out languidly when ,
bola through, reuiarks to the boy at the door
that it is fine day, and disappear.
A 6IDKWA.LK GAMB.
The Ontral club, at 818 Broadway, Xew
York, is the wealthiest of this sort of institu
tions. It is historic in association as the re
sort of people noted for brains as well as
money. Here Daniel Webster and Rufus
Choate "tri?d their luck," and Congressman
Fernando Wood won fSO.OOO between 10
o"Vloek and midnight during the "flush times"
of the war, a loss to the bank, by the way,
which a noted actor made good to John Mor
riaeey's successors at the same place"tnly a
few weeks ao by getting rid of much more
than the mm Wood won. At the Central
club an offense airainst the unwritten rulos of
order is rfsnrdil as unpardonable. A Wall
street broker. woll known to the proprietors,
recently ljst fcJUO at the green covered table.
He rose to go. "If you wish to play longer,
Mr. X.,"soft!y murmured the dealer, "your
credit is good. Will you take a thousand
dollar stack of chips to begin withi"'
The broker burst out violently: "I want
yon to understand, sir, that when I invest
$300 it is for pleasure. When 1 invest $1,000
it is for business, and I transact all business
at my office in Wall street."
The dealer turned to the colored doorkeep
er. He had made his otTer iu a friendly
mood, and he didn't like its reception. So he
remarked: "William, this gentleman does
all his business iu Wall street. Please see
be doesn't do any more here." And from
this on Mr. X. will have to risk bis spare
cnange at some oilier place than the Central
Besides resorts of this class there are others
of more modest pretensions, where people of
small means venture $10 or $"J0, see their
chips melt away and walk off "broke." Theu
there are the "tin pail joints." affected by
workingmen, end "crook hangouts," where
thieved can barter stolen Roods for counters
and punt them away in "going against" a
Ilow the passion for gambling takes hold
of tun human mind is well illustrated in this
connection by the anecdote of two cowboys
wno nau money in tueir pocket and no im
mediate means of losing it. They heard that
in a far away mountain cabin a man bad set
up a faro table. They rode niht and day to
reach the resort. They played with uniform
ill luek. Finally one of the cowboys whis
pered to the other: "Say. Jack, the dealer's
cheatiu'. He's play in' strippers, an' puilin'
iwo earns at once."
"Fur God's sake keep still," was the reply.
"Don't anar him, or he'll close the game, an'
there ain't another layout within K) miles.''
Whether craps will permanently reletate
faro to the background as the favorite of those
who recklessly squander their hard earnings
or accumulated wealtn In gracirying a mad
passion for gaming remains to be se.n. But
just at present craps is king.

Tha Tired Feeling
That extreme tired feeling which Is so dis
tressing and often so nnaccouuts ble in the
spring months, Is entirely overcom by Hood's
Barsaparilla, which tones the whole body,
purifies the blood, cures scrofula and all
humors, cures dyspepsia, creates a i appetite,
rouses the torpid liver, braces up the nerves,
and clears the mind. We solicit a e imparison
of Hood's Sarsaparilla with any o:her blood
purifier In the market for purity, economy,
strength, and medicinal merit.
Tired all the Time
"I bad no spjetite or strength, and felt
tired all the time. I attributed mj condition
to scrofulous humor. I had tried several
kinds of medicine without lenefii. But as
soon as I bad taken half a bottle f Hood's
Sarsaparilla, my appetite was rest ired, and
my stomach felt better. I have I ow taken
nearlythree bottles, and I never wa- so well."
