THE AKGUS, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 5. 1SU3.
A GOLD BRICK TRICK.
THE ASSAY OFFICE THE PEOPLE
HAD LOADS OF FUN.
An Interesting and Mirth Producing En
connter of an Innocent Looking Jay
hawker With a Lot or Exceedingly Smart
Bank Clerks Who Knew It All.
What a jay he looked! The hayseed
was dropping out of his pockets, and his
tinkempt whiskers were sporting with
the wind as he marched into the United
States assay office in Wall street and de
posited upon a desk a big carpet bag,
which he set down with a resounding
bang. All the clerks stood around and
grinned. It was the old story.
"Mr. Assay Man." he said. "I have
here a gold brick that I"
But he was interrupted with a roar of
laughter. A yonng man in a corner
nearly rolled on the floor with merri
ment. A banker's clnrk who had come
in to inquire ali..nt a gold shipment gig
gled till he was crimson.
"Sucker born every minute," he said.
"Same old vain. You jayhawkers
wouldn't got taken in so of ten if you
read the papers. Oh, Lord, what a fool
you must be!"
The old man looked puzzled. "If you
will kindly talk Cnglish." he remarked,
"you and 1 will be able to understand
each other better What do you mean
by calling me a fool?"
"Precisely what I say." spoke up the
banker's clerk -You've been taken in
by the gold brie!: swindle."
"Yes, swindle. You met a ' 1 from
California, didn't you. who h-.. a gold
brick tied np in a red handkerchief and
an Indian with htm? Man said the brick
was worth 0.000. and he'd sell it for
$3,000, didn't he?"
"Oh. what a lark!" laughed the bank
er's clerk, and every one in the office was
on a broad grin at the mystification of
the jay hawker. "The Cahfornian said
the Indian knew where there were a lot
more gold bricks and they've gone to get
them. And then they sold you a lump
of lead covered with gold paint that is
worth about $4.65, and you've come down
here to the United States assay office to
have the le:;d analyzed and get told what
a monkey you've made of yourself." And
every one howled with mirth.
"Not so fast, yonng man," objected
the jayhawkcr. "Yon were right about
ilie Californian and the- redskin selling
:i;e the gold brick, but there 3'our infor
mation ceased. 'Tain't no bit of lead they
worked off on me. I had a chip of it ana
lyzed. No. sir. 1 wa'n't born yesterday,
if I nm from the country."
"You had it assayed!" burst out the
banker's clerk, almost exploding with
the intensity of his grin. "You knocked
a corner off the brick, and then they
changed it on you, substituting a piece
of real gold cut from a $5 goldpiece.
That of course was found to bo all right,
and they, landed you like an old guy,
high and dry." Laughter.
"No, they didn't," protested the jay
hawker. "I've got the genuine thing.
I'll bet you $300 it's a real gold brick."
And ho pulled out the sum of money
named and threw it on the table.
There were cries of "Don't taka the
poor old chump's money. He's been done
once," and, " 'Tain't fair to bet on a sure
thing." The jayhawker, however, pro
tested. "I'm rich," he said. "Tve got a lot
more money I'm going to spend on gold
bricks, and if any one can fool me I want
to know it. I'd like to take a flier on it
The banker's clerk hardly liked to
cheat the jayhawker, but all the rest said
that the lesson would be worth $300 to
the old fellow.
"I'll make the bet without looking at
the brick," said the banker's clerk. "The
terms of it are that you've been fooled
and that you've bought a lump of lead
or something. Money talks. Here's
mine," and he threw $500 on the table.
There were some moral scruples in the
minds of the crowd about "doing" the
old man up in that way, but the major
ity view was that he deserved it for be
ing so fresh.
The money being deposited, the jay
hawker slowly unpacked his carpet bag
in the presence of a broad grin. There
were derisive cheers as he took the gold
brick from the many coverings he had
wound around it and handed it to the as
saver. That official accepted it, and a look of
amazement came over his face.
"Gentlemen," he said, "this brick will
not need any assaying. It was made in
this building, and it has the government
stamp upon it. It is worth $10,000."
The jayhawker reached for the stake
money and transferred it to his pocket.
The grin on the face of the know it all
clerk changed to an expression of pain
as he turned to the man nearest to him
and politely requested that he kick him
to the foot of Wall street and off into the
The only person in the crown who was
smiling now was the jayhawker. Turn
ing to the assayer, who had taken no part
in the proceedings, he said:
"I had business here, but I have trans
acted it. My business is exclusively
with emart young alecks wlio know it
all and want to enlighten the old suck
ers. Good day, gentlemen." He beamed
upon them for a moment and was gone.
Outside the assay office he was joined
by a young man who likely enough
"capped" his game when occasion re
quired. "Did it work, uncle?" inquired the lat
"Work! Did it ever fail? Let's go up
to one of the Broadway bankf , and you
can start a crowd guessing and betting
as to whether it's real pold. Work!"
They sauntered west. The old man
looked so guileless and innocent that
every second citizen they met had a
mind to sell him green goods or pick bis
pocket. New York Herald.

A large crowd attended the ball

The game was interesting and some
very good playing done, but was
rather one-sided., the' visiting nine

A serious accident stopped the game
at the end of the sixth inning, when
the pitcher of the Preemption nine,
having left the box to play right
field on account of his arm paining
him, in an effort to throw the ball
home from his position, had the mis
fortune to break his arm between the
elbow and shoulder. He was taken
at once to the office of Dr. Werner,

sufferer as comfortable as possible,
and he was taken to his home south

Historical Names of Kiugs.
Some of the early kings of France
ruled over Germany at one time when
there was no division, but when there
was a separate Gorman nation the rulers
gained many curious titles. "Fat" was
one and "Blind" another. Also the
"Child," the "Fowler." Then "Blood,"
"Red," "Black," "Superb" and "Sharp,"
while one king is particularly described
as the "Holy and Lame."
The rulers of the provinces that now
make up Spain had a number of kings
called Great and Catholic. Then they
also had the Monk and Gouty and in
cluded others who were infirm Bad,
Noble, Strong, Valiant, Gracious, Sick
ly, Impotent, Beneficent and Ceremoni
ous. Ferdinand ni of Leon and Castile
was the Saint and Holy.
Hungary has her rulers described as
Saint, German, Thunder, Venetian, Great
and a King Mary who was probably the
only woman who held a like title. Over
Portugal reigned the Fat, Idle, African
and Great and Perfect.
The people of Russia havs generally
had a hard time of it. We realize this
today, and the names given to their
kings show the reason therefor. None
was good, wise or just, though there
was Peter the Great, who did all he
could to help his country. But how
could a nation progress with rulers who
gained the title of Terrible, Impostor,
Proud, Lightf oot, Grim, Fierce and Lion?
