The Fotnre Held Nothing; Bright r
Promising for This Mam.
He was occupying a bench on the com
mon, his head resting on his hands, a
picttue of despair. The blustering winds
of Alarch swept across his weather
beaten countenance and froze the tears
as they coursed down Ids furrowed
A lindly old gentleman in clerical
garb i ageing by paused. His heart was
toucht-d by the sad sight, and he laid a
sympathetic hand upon the poor fellow's
"What is the matter, my friend?" he
said k: ndly, "I fear you are not welL
There seems to be a hectic flush"
"Doa't say that 'ere, stranger," said
the object of the good man's sympathy,
stretct ing forth his hand as if in protest.
"Don't twit a poor devil on his misfor
tunes. Tworn't exactly a hectic flush,
thougt , neither, 'thout that's a new '
name I haven't heard on; and p'raps you
don't mean bad arter all."
The clerical gentleman hastened to
denyaiy intention of raking op past
sorrows and urged him to explain.
"VTly, yer see, pard. 'twas this way,"
said th 9 other. "Some er the boys was
just gittin interested in the game, an
they kinder axed me ter set in. I sot in,
an thir gs went along sort er quiet like
till Bob Simpkins he opened np a jacker
an the;- all come in er whoopin. I had
as pur-y a busted flush ter draw ter as
ever you see, an, thinks I. I'll raise him
back on the openin. So I riz him back
an they all stood, game as yer please.
When it come ter the draw Bob he
lowed le didn't want any, an I took one
pape. My busted flush was the ten,
jack, queen, king er spades, an I'll be
darned if I didn't draw the ace o' that
'ere identical suit. I didn't stop ter see
no more. 1 had the only hand in the
deck w hat couldn't be beat, an I jest
closed Yin up on the table an got ready
ter have some fun.
"An the fun was thar, too, an don't you
make no mistake. The other fellers all
went out mighty quick when they see
me an Eob was in it fer blood, an we jest
had it back an forth like two tomcats
hung over a clothes line. When everv
gol darned cent we could raise was in
the pot Bob lowed he'd call. Sez he:
'See hen-. Jim, 1 got yer beat, but yer
ain't got no more money, an ye may as
well sho sv the boys what yer so doggone
"Sez I: 'Bob Simjikins, whatever ye've
got, the swag is mine. Ye can't down a
straight flush clean up at the top, an no
other man can't do it neither.'
"Well, stranger. Bob, he had four
eights, in I tell ye he looked mighty
sick. I laid down my kyards an got a
good grip on the stakes, when, by jinks,
if they d.dn't raise a yell fit ter hist one
er them 'ere motor cars clean of! the
track! 1 kinder lifted my fingers an
axed what they was er makin seen a dad
blarsted rumpus about."
He pat sed, gulped down a sob and con
tinued: "Stranger, that ere flush was
still busted. The queen was nuthin but
the dogf-oned eight o' clubs I thought
Td discarded. That "ere queen had just
slipped -.hrough my fingers like the
wimmen allers does, an I"
A heartrending sigh finished the sen
tence, an 1 for a few minutes the silence
spoke lo ider than the still, small voice
of a new infant ijthe night. He sadly
took up the narrative once more, and
said: "The boys they wouldn't believe
Td discarded wrong. They thought it
war a b it up job, just like I'd be gol
darned tool enough to lay my hand
down for thorn ter look at if I knew
'twornt a' 1 right! An 1 had ter come
out o there mighty quick, an consekent-
ly am t h id no chance ter get even. An
I main tail it ain't right ter treat a feller
like that 'ere when he ain't done nothin
"My good fellow," said the kind old
gentleman, "you have my svmpathv.
but this seems to me to le a fitting op
portunity to point out to you the evils of
"Stranger," interrupted the other,
"don't go no further. 1 appreciate yer
kindness i ji all that, but thar ain't only
one thing yer kin do fer me. If you'll
take an Lick me from here over to that
'ere gate j onder an back again you'll do
a poor suffenn erect er a heap er good.
There ain't nothin else yer kin do; nuth
in at all."
"But my good fellow," remonstrated
the other, "I"
"Thar's nuthin else, stranger, nuthin
else. I au t got no further use fer any
thin else bit that."
His head sank forward again on his
chtst and despair seemed to cast a mel
ancholy tinge on the very air that sur
rounded h in. Realizing that such sor
row was tK) deep to be alleviated by
any humar sympathy, the clerical gen
tleman sighed and passed on. Kew
