On nist tiecoimns a hiemner ot the club,
: b:id conflneil himself to plnving in the
3iil. boursof the morning. All the hiKh-

.2ae liimrs be had first avoided on princi-
A.'ter 1 o'clock he had noticed that
Lr iieeaiue slacker, and that those play-
lers who still staid on were either over
icitetl with wine or beginning to tire: and
ij3o'ciock in tiie morning there were, as
Iiraie. bat a few jaded or half intoxicated
amiierit; fair game, he considered, for a
nsni- man of regular habits, and who

Now, as he said to his wife.be was in
I Pi.-ynu business, and pleasure and con-
Imuence must give way to that, and she,
btsga practical young woman, cheerfully
nquiescnl. Tiie consequence was that
ills enterprising young couple kept very
cihous hours indeed. They went to bed
rfs-iiariy at 4 o'clock in the afternoon, and
Ft np as regularly at midnight. Von
Bichnitz then dressed himself faultlessly
ntrnung costume, kisaed bis dear little
if, who wished him good success, and
ttnied into the club as fresh as paint. And
tils tiian fur some time succeeded excel
letiy well. Indeed the Frau Baronin,

tkbaud, whs beginning to look forward
Sue retirement on a very fair compe
tary in th near future.
But this was by no means Van Rach-
Itiuii idea. A comfortable competency

"Oh, well, then, I suppose it can't be
helped," said the baroness, resigning her
self, as she had often done before, to what
seemed to be the inevitable.
tt was two days after this conversation
that Rao .il Fleischer became a member of
the club He was a rude, overbearing,
vulgar creature, egotistical and pushing to
a degree; boastful about his superiority at
games ot skill and exasperatingly confi
dent of his luck at games of chance.
No one appeared to know precisely where
he came from, although he bore letters
from en inenlly respectable gentlemen,
lated at different parts of the Continent.
Fleischer bad not been a member of the
club a wi-ek when it was snggested to Von
Kacbnitz that he should challenge this
very objectionable person to a great bout
atecarte, in which, if bis luck which was
by this time proverbial in the club held
good, XI. Rao-il Fleischer might be taught
"Well, baron," said the latter one night,
aildressii g Von Rachnitz with a vulgar a9
suniptior of familiarity, "lucky, as usual,
I suppost f"
"1 don't know so much about luck, M.
Fleischer; I'm prepared to back my skill
even atr.-dnst you. I'll play you a few
games of ecarte, if you wish, though per
haps thi.t's hardly your game, judging
from the way you lost the big pool last
"Kcarb? not my game!" replied Fleischer
Indignan sly. "I lost the pool last nisht, it
is true, but the cards were against me;
that was why I made no mistake. I will,
meinherr, play you, when you will, for
what you will, a hundred games of ecarte
and we ill see who is the better man, I or
"Very s-ell," replied Von Rachnitz, "as
you will. Tomorrow I win play yon 100
games of ecarte for 1,000 francs apiece."
The following night the club was crowd
ed. New s of the match had spread abroad
among the members, and men who had
not been seen in the rooms for months
were present. It was evident that the
sympatie of the onlookers were with the
baron, wao, although displaying admira
ble coolr ess and all his accustomed skill,
lost stead ily. Hand after hand was played,
and Von Rachnitz invariably lost.
What vcas most extraordinary about the
contest w as that Fleischer's success came
to him in spite of the fact that his play
was cont-ary to all canons of the game.
He played "on authority" when he seemed
to have hardly a decent card in his hand,
and yet le won, and he "gave cards" when
be held n good playing hand, and invaria
bly succeeded iu bettering it.
Von Rachnitz's face became a study.
He lifted his eyebrows from time to time
in a surprised way, and clearly indicated
in his features that he was puzzled. Ab
solutely irrational as was his opponent's
play, the cards were invariably against the
To mar y of the most expert players of
the club who had crowded about the table
it soon bocame evident that Fleischer must
have some peculiar knowledge of the cards
still left in the pack. Apparently, how
ever, nntil nine games had been played, all
of which had been won by his opponent,
the baroa remained unconscious of any
The teeth game was now in progress.
Fleischer was "four up" and "marked" the
king for the trHrd time in succession. At
that morient Von Rachnitz arose from the
chair, an i in a voice of assumed calmness
said: "These cards are marked. I demand
an investigation." The next instant he
lifted a pack which lay at his side on the
table and flung them into his opponent's
face, exdaiming, "You are a scoundrel
and a swindler."
So pair able to many members of the dub
had been the cheating of XL Fleischer,
that a disposition was at once manifested
by a nun.ber of those prtsent to throw him
into the f treat without further ceremony.
To thU course the baron objected, and
apologizing for the scene be had created,
begged that a full and rigid investigation
of the ch.irge of cheating be made at once,
and befoi-e any further violence was offered
his opponent. The investigation was made
on the (pot, and the baron's charge was
found to be abundantly substantiated.
The card i were found to be of a most in
geniously marked variety, and, as was es
tablished, had been smuggled into the clnb
by Fleischer with the connivance of one of
the under servants.
It was nt this point that the generosity
of the baron asserted itself in refusing to
accede tj the wishes of several of his
frieuds, who desired that the impostor
should be turned over to the police. Iu
fact, the baron accorded his late adversary
protect ioi from personal violence at the
hands of the more hotheaded members of
the club, who were anxious to chastise
him on tiie spot, and permitted the swin
dler to depart unharmed, upon his assur
ance that he would leave Paris at once.
When the door had closed upon the dis
comtitted Fleischer, and those who had
witnessed the episode had returned to the
card rooia, the bnron begged to be allowed
to say a word publicly.
"Geutl jmen," said he, "I am about to
act out a a impulse. Whether I am wise
in doing ::o will perhaps lie a source of dis
pute in t le minds of my friends; but so ir
resistibly am I impelled to the course I am
about to take I cannot, I do not dare
delay announcing my decision. I need not
tell you, gentlemen, that this episode has
been to me a terrible shock. Xever before
iu my 1 fe have I seen cheating at cards,
and never again, God willing, will I sub
mit to Boch un experience. From this mo
ment, an 1 iu your presence, I swear sol
emnly that neither in this club nor else
where will I touch a card again for the re
mainder of my life."
There were murmurs of surprise, min
gled with slight applause, and it was ad
mitted on all sides that the baron, had con
ducted himself admirably.
Von Richnitz is still a member of the
Baccarat club, but he plays no more. He,
with his wifer move in the very best Pari
sian society, and the baron has a reputa
tion for tare cleverness and courage. No
one, however, has as yet given him credit
for haviig been clever and courageous
enough to have imported into the Baccarat
club the unfortunate Fleischer, who, fot a
consideration, had agreed to undergo all
the contumely and risks attending the dis
covery ot a cheat, which were necessary to
cover the baron's retreat from a system
atic swindling of his fellow members prob
ably nnpvalleled in the history of cards.

William Blakeney was a shuttle maker
by trade, but a pilgrim by profession. He
dressed for the part with long hair, long
Rown and bare feet. He loitered about in
places where men resorted taverns and
such and there entertained all comers
with travelers' tales. He had been every

grim. He had seen Seville, city of sacred
relics; Rome, the abode of his holiness the
pope; he had even seen the pope himself.
He had lieeu to the Holy Land and stood
within the very sepulcber of onr Lord.
And what with the strange creatures he
had met with in those far off lands, and
the men and women among whom he had
sojourned, and the things be could tell
you, and the things which he postponed
till the next time, the story would fill vol

comfort, eating and drinking of the best,
always at the expense of bis bearers. This
man must have been an unequaled story
teller. Six years of invention ever fresh
and new I Then he was found out he had
never made a pilgrimage in his life. He
had never been out of sight of the London

who would in these days have commanded
so much respect and . such solid rewards
he stood in pillory, with a whetstone round
his neck, as if he bad been a common liar!
And then be had to go back to the dull
monotony of shuttle making, and that in
silence, with nobody to believe him any
more. Well, he shortly afterward died, I
am eonviured, of suppressed fiction. Wal
