MEN WHO HAD LUCK. ;
STORIES CIRC JLATED IN A GROUP OF
Most of Them Were Told by Professional
Gamblers and May or May Not Be Tree,
but an A ffldav it Is Required For the Tarn
About the Gold Seeker, i
"Well, that was luck."
The speaker was one of a group of half
a dozen men who -were standing on Pa
cific avenue pu flung away at Havanas and
talking just to pass time away and to
clear their thr ts. The conversation had
been about tl e livery stable man, Mar
tin, of this ci:y, who hail fallen heir to
1350,000 three years ago and didn't find
it out until a lew days ago.
"Talk about luck," said one of the
group, who ws s a gambler,"we see plenty
of it. Do yen know that one day last
week a man entered one of our gambling
houses with a nickel and won out $ 400 in
three hours? He had gone clean busted
the night befe re and found the nickel in
an out of the way corner in his room the
"That blol ie went to the gambling
house with ti e intention of placing his
5 cent piece on the number 5. He got
into the room when the roulette ball was
whizzing aro md on its tour of numbers.
He rushed to the table and got down his
nickel on the five just as the game run
ner shouted 'All downP In a few sec
onds the ball started on its 'rear end'
bouncing, at I in a few seconds more the
man shouted 'Five!' That gave the man
with the niokel $1.75 for his 5 cents.
Then he put $1 on No. 17, and that num
ber came up, giving him 35 more. He
continued ti play with varying luck
until in three hours he had won $403.
And the ne:ct day he was broke again.
He borrowed a nickel and tried the game
again, bnt it didn't go."
"1 can tel". a story of a man who was
lucky," said a business man. "In the
early days cf the gold excitement in Cali
fornia, then came into San Diego a man
who was rai sed and sick almost to death
! He was takin in hand and fed and fixed
up. Then lie told a story of a wonder
I ful find of gold he had made. It was
only a few ays off, he said, and he would
, take a part;.- to the t lace if they would
"Several TTiori n-Vi r, w w. 1 1. ... e
, the great gold in the mountains that was
theirs to co after cot un a nartv of ,".i.
The start was made with that man us
; leader. A:'t?r a few davs' travel it be
came evident that the man had forgotten
the. way. They traveled on, trusting to
luck, liowt vor. Indians were hostile at
' the time. a:id they started in to mow the
gold huutt rs. They picked of! one after
auother with their bullets. A score were
thus taken off. Then a fever struck the
party, ami 11 more went the way of
"By this time the 19 survivors were
crazy with rage. They liad been 14 days
out and were traveling in the must arid
country. Food was growing less and
less, and ueath faced everybody. On tLe
afternoon of the fourteenth day the lead
er, who h id caused so much misery, was
given three days more to find his gold
'find.' If he was not successful by that
time, he was to hang.
"Well, the three days had almost
passed, and still there was no sign of tho
find. Tho last hour was almost up. It
seemed that the man must hang. There
were only five minutes more, now two
minutes, now one minute, now a h.Tlf
minute then came his luck. Just as tho
time was up for tho hanging that man
"I don't see how he was lucky," put in
the gambler who had told the first story.
"Why," said the business man, '-fie
was lucky because if he hadn't died he
would hiive been hanged."
Another gambler told how a few days
ago a geen Swede who knew nothing
about the game, but determined to try
his luck, had won nearly $1,000. He
had bee a an onlooker once or twice and
seen big winnings. He went to the rou
lette wh x;l with $20, and in a few hours
he had v,on out $800. It seemed that no
matter what numlier he put chips on
and ho played recklessly, as all new play
ers doit came up every time. That
was pure luck. Tho man played no com
binatioi s or "arrangements," liecause he
was as f.Teen as grass and knew nothing
about the game.
"I have a friend," spoke up one of the
group, who is connected with the city
government, "who by the merest luck
made a discovery that is netting him mil
lions. His name is Perkins, and a few
years a jo back in Minnesota he made his
discovery- He was a traveling man for
a groci ry firm, and while walking to a
train tt. go from one country town to an
other cue day he whittled a stick.
"He had whittled the stick in a trian
gular s lape. On the train the idea struck
him that the shape would be just what
was wanted for railroad spikes. The
square spikes in vogue were not the right
thing liecause they 6plit the grain of the
green ties when driven into them, and
when lry the wood shrank away from
them. The triangle shaped spike would
not split the grain, and subsequent
shrinkage would be done away with.
Perkii s submitted his discovery to Pull
man, md now the spikes are being made
by m llions at Pullman, Ills., making
millio is for Perkins and Pullman."
Anc ther gambler here chimed in with
the statement that during the past week
a garxbler from Seattle had won $2,300
at farD in Tacoma rooms in two sittings.
Both ulttings occupied 13 hours, and the
first sitting resulted in the winning of
$1,80C and the second $1,000. During
the latter game the man was out nearly
the whole $1,800 he had won at sitting
No. l.but rhe picked up and won big
money. "I suppose he has gone back to
Seattle with his dough," said the gam
bler, "as I have not seen him for some
days. Tacoma News.

A Man From New York State Took a Little
Active Exercise on Horseback.
"I once was a sufferer from insomnia,"
said a dentist who lives in one of the
small villages of the state, as he sat talk
ing with other men in the sitting room
of an up town hotel, "but I got rid of the
"What did you take for it?"
"Bucking pony." .
"Tell us about that, please."
"Well, you see, there was nothing the
matter with mo only I couldn't sleep.
The doctor looked me over and said I
wasn't suffering from any disease that
he could detect, but all the same I conld
get only a few catnaps every n'-it, and
I felt that I would go crazy if 6ui a con
dition of affairs continued much longer.
A wise friend of mine advised me to try
horseback exercise. Just at that time a
man had brought to the village a string
of ponies from the west. As the ponies
were wild they were offered for sale
cheap. I bought one. He was such a
sleepy looking animal that we called him
Rip Van Winkle. After we knew him
better we dropped part of the name and
called him plain Kip. The first ridel
took on him furnished excitement for the
whole village. Two men helped me to
saddle and mount him in the stable.
When the door was opened he shot out
into the street like a streak of lightning.
"He ran full against the fence opposite
the stable and broke several pickets.
Then he reared up oh his hind legs and
came near throwing me over backward.
Next he tried to btiiud on his head, but
I yanked hiia back on his feet and drove
the spurs into him. He started to run
then, and I let him co as fast as he could
leg it until we got to the Methodist
church at'the end of the street. A tem
perance mc.-ting was being held in the
church and the door was open. Before 1
could stop the pony we were in the
church and half way up the aisle. Wom
en screamed and fainted.
"Some of the men led Rip back into the
street. I didn't dare to get off his back.
When the men let go of the bridle he be
gan to buck, and for a few minutes I
thought my neck would be broken. He
would go at a gallop when he went at
all, but he would stop now and then to
indulge in some bucking. Presently he
changed his tactics and went from one
street to another, across lots, jumping
fences, turning up flower beds, damaging
gardens and keeping me busy dodging
the branches of fruit trees. The next
street led to a turnpike, along which I
spurred him for miles until he was cov
ered with foam and nearly tired out.
"He seemed to lie docile when I got
him back to the stable. Next day, how
ever, he was nearly as bad as when I
first rode liim, and every day for a fort
night I was obliged to race him along the
turnpike several miles. My I my! How
ho did buck! I was so lame at the end of
two weeks that I could scarcely walk to
my office, but I could sleep. A few min
utes after I got into bed at night I was
sleeping soundly, and I awoke every
morning thoroughly refreshed."
"Do you still ride the pony?"
"2o. By the time I was cured of sleep
lessness I hail broken Rip to ride, and I
sold him for double the sum I had paid
for him. My advice to anybody who is
suffering from insomnia is to get a buck
ing jKiny and ride as fast as he can. If
no necks are broken, both man and pony
will be benefited by the treatment."

To Remove Substances From the Eye.
To remove the solid particles from un
der the lids, it is sufficient to pull the lid
away from the eye and to wipe the body
with a piece of moist paper or the corner
of a handkerchief. If it is under the up
per lid, grasp the lid firmly between the
thumb and finger, lift it from the eye
ball and draw it down over the lower
lid, and then allow it to slide slowly
back to its natural position. The foreign
body will be scraped off on the lashes.
The operation may be repeated several
times. Or lift the lid from the eyeball,
allow the tears to accumulate beneath
the lid and forcibly blow the nose. Or
place in the eye a few grains of flaxseed,
which, forming a mucilage, will prompt
ly bring relief. Or place across the up
per lid the point of a pencil or bodkin,
and turn the lid back over it. In this
way the foreign particle is brought into
distinct view and can be readily wiped
away. Washington Star.
A Long I'nderground Canal.
The canal Intween Worsley and St.
Helena in north England is probably the
longest and most remarkable canal of
the kind in the world. It is 16 miles
long and is underground from one end
to the other, Many years ago the man
agers of the Duke of Bridgewater's es
tate filled its old mines with water that
they might transport the coal under
ground instead of on the surface. Ordi
nary canalboats are used, the power be
ing furnished by the men. The tunnel
arch over the canal is provided with
cross pieces, and the men propel the
boats along as they lie on their backs on
the loads of coal. Pittsburg Dispatch.
The Talmudic writers tell us that "the
blessed God gave to the first man in par
adise a staff which had been created be
tween the stars. Adam gave it to Enoch,
Enoch to Noah. Noah to Shem, Shem to
Abraham, Abraham to Isaac, Isaac to
Jacob. Jacob carried it into Egypt and
gave it to his son Joseph. When Joseph
died his household goods were taken to
the house of Pharaoh. Pharaoh took the
staff of Adam, which had descended to
Joseph from the first man, and put it
among his special treasures." St. Louis

Bathftig on the itea h at Newport.
The creme do lacreme aro fit Newport.
The nobilily have established a new
bathing place called Bailey's beach, at
the end of Bellevne avenue, in the he::rt
of the millionaires' qnarter. It is o.-.ly
about 300 yards in -length, but :w.n
space the cottagers think thrr can hold
against the assaullsof the com mon !i. rd.
No buses or horse cars are al?(wil to
land passencer8 there during the morn
ing hours. A bathing house has oeoa
built, with a granite. portico. In this are
little retreats 9 feet by 12, each of which
bears the initials of the gentleman who
owns ft. A stranger could no more buy
or hire one of these bathing houses than
he could engage a front seat in the bal
cony of heaven. Fifteen of the houses
belong to the Vanderbilt family; others
to the Astors, the Stnyvesant Fishes,
the De Forrests and their clan.
The hours for bathing are from 11 in
the morning until 1. At 11 three guards
make their appearance; one patrols the
beach; two others in a lifeboat cruise 100
yards out It is their business to rescue
swimmers who run danger of drowning.
Three young ladies, Miss Clews and the
two Misses Pierson, put their patience
sorely to the test. When Miss Clews'
head appears, the guards take out their
oars as a matter of course and head for
the open sea. When the bathing begins,'
if a stranger makes his appearance on
the beach, men and matrons follow him
with such sad, reproachful glances that
he wonders what he has done now and
sneaks out of the sacred preserve in a
demoralized condition. Cor. San Fran
steadiness to Help Germany.
We are happy to give assurance to
Germany that we shall be pleased to sup
ply her with all the breadstuff's she may
need this year. We shall ask only a fair
price for them. We can also supply her
with other kinds of agricultural prod
ucts, quantities of then. We have some
Indian meal to 6pare, and it can be fed
to the army horses, as the kaiser has
ordered. We have yet some hay left.
If Germany needs fruits or wines, we
have them for sale. We can supply her
with the best pork and bacon in the
world, besides other meats, fresh or salt,
in cold storage or otherwise. This is the
market to which Germany ought to
come whenever she needs anything,
whatever it may be.
We must trust that Russia will not

Castoria is the best remedy for children of

far distant when mothers will consider the real
interest of their children, and use Castoria in
stead of the various quack nostrums which are
destroying their loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
agents down their throats, thereby sending
them to premature graves."
