??I haven't played a game of poker j
fqr twolvo yours," remarked Thomas
H. Slidton, a prominent business man
and politician of Eastern Kentucky.
I was famishing for u little game my
self, aud he saw the sigus of my yoaru
mg in my face, which impelled him to
mtiku this avowal.
I know ho had onco heon extrava
gantly foud of pokor, ami kuowing,
too, when a mau oucu gots tho pokor

morphine habit is a small task com
pared to it, 1 was interested to know
tho antidote that had cured him.
" Since 1 held tho winning hund and
lost on a l?g Handy river raft twolvo
years ugo 1 haven't touched n deck,
and I'll shulllo off this mortal coil bo

perience my life has known.
44 1 was engaged, at the timo I
started, iu the timber business on tbo
Big Sandy river. I was iu partnership
with Joe and / '". Davis, twin brothers,
ami wealthy timbor men of tbo llig
Sandy valley. Wo were buying thous
ands of staves, ties and logs along the
Sandy and its tributaries and wore
lloating them down the Ohio to Cincin
nati. On tbo occasion of which I
speak wc three woro on a raft of logs
that wo were taking out of Sandy to
the Ohio, and were about fourteen
milos above Oattlesburg, the point of
confluence of the two rivors. Alf. pro
posed that we have a quioi little game
of poker, and .loo and 1 readily assont
ing, wo repaired to a little box shanty
iu the centor of tbo raft where wo
slept and ato, and had tbo cooking
" Alf, entered tbo door of the struc
ture first, and, going to his overcoat,
hangiug at the opposite side from tho
door, he drew therefrom a quart bottle
of a muddy-colored liquor.
44 'Hoys,' he said reaching it toward
mo, here is a sort of liquor they call
44 persimmon ooze." 1 nover saw any
before?never tasted this. A friend at
Liouisa gave it fo me?don't know what
it tastes like, but it'll make the drunk
come like whiskey, they say, if you
take too much of it.'
44 'And you take too much of it if
you tako a drop,' said I, pushing the
bottle away. 'I've heard of your
44 persimmon ooze," Alf. and 1 heard
nothing good of it. It's a Satanic con
coction, distilled from persimmons,
and from what I've heard, Shake
speare's witches preside where it is
made. 1 don't want any, and would
adviso you, if you aim to play pokor,
to let it alone.'
*? *Oh, one snifter won't hurt a
felor, 1 know,' ho said laughing.
11 As I refused, ho extended the
bottle to .loo.
44 4 Alf,' I interrupted, 4don't take that
stuff, please. From what I heard of
it, it is dangerous.'
44 4Why?' asked .loe, withdrawing
44 ?Well, it turns a man's nature
completely upside down. If you are a
happy man, it makes you nvserable; if
you arc miserable, you havy a mnniacal
joy; if you are brave it makes you
u paltroon, if you are kind and good
natured, it makes a violent demon of
you. Now, you are very good natured
?and tbo proportionate reverse would
make you Satanic indeed I'
44 Alf laughed incredulously, elevat
ed it to his lips, and took a long swal
low. He put it back in his coat and
we all sat down at the greasy little
tablo and prepared for a poker feast?
a feast more delectable to the mental
palate than a French chef could pre
pare for the material. At that time,
we all three had lots of money, and
wo wouldn't slur tho honored game
by making small bets, or setting any
lines of limitation.
44 In a few minutes the 'pot' hold
five thousand dollars in gold. Thon,
for a moment, 1 felt a sort of cool sen
sation travel up and down my back
bone. A foreboding of evil took
possession of my mind in spite of my
efforts to shake it off. My hand be
gan to tremble, and that doubtless ou
couraged Alf and Joe to think the
hand I held was very frail, though they
had uevcr before, in the face of any
situation, however desperate, aeon me
give any physical signs of elation or
distress. It wasn't that 1 feared the
result of tho oponing, for I hold a safe
44 Soon my inexplicable distress be
camo ho great that 1 half arose from
the table and gasped for breath.
44 4Set down, there!' roared Alf.
4 You coward I You don't quit the
game that wayl'
44 I looked at him and tho Satanic
expression of his face drove the blood
to my heart. He held high his hand,
and began to laugh iu demoniac
shrieks. His brother, I vaguely noted,
was gazing at him with staring balls,
all the blood gone from his drawn, yel
lowish face when the 'show down'
came. All had a pair of aces and a
pair of lens.
44 Ho looked ovor Joe's hand. The
latter had three queens.
44 4You choatl' shrieked Alf, and,
quick as a flash he seized a skillet lid
ami struck Joo on tho side of the head
with the edge of it. The latter rolled
under the tablo with a groan. I was
too frightened to think how badly Joo
was injured, when the demon shrieked
at mo: 4What have you got, you
44 4Oh,' I cried, 'nothing now; the
pot is yours. Your pair of aces, pair
of tens and skillet lid knock out ray
four kingsl* and I forced a laugh.
44 The demon ran to his coat, took
out the bottle and drank agflin.
44 4l)rJnkl' he yelled, reaching It to
me. I hesitated. Ho seized the skillet
414Dnnkl' he shrieked again.
441 raised the bottlo and pretended
to drink, but the cra/.y man saw the
hypocritical act and threw the lid at
my head. I saved my skull by shifting
the bottle. It met the lid and fell to
pieces. I now screamed as loudly as I
could. The man who steored the raft
came running. As ho was about en
tering the hut, Alf fired at him with a
revolver. The man ran a few feet and
reeled over the logs into the river.
44 The crazy demon thon turned the
revolver on me. The first shot grazed
the left side of my head, and badly
powder burned my cheek. Ho fired
again, but I disturbed his aim with
my left arm, and the ball went through
the roof of tho cabin. He tried to
shoot again hut the pistol snapped.
My this time I got hold of the
skilled lid, and before /he could aim
again, I struck him on (he side of tho
head with such forco that be fell sense
less to the floor, wallowing in his own
and his brother's blood.
44 I now stopped to examine the ex
tent of duo's injuries. Alas! Iiis

and the brains was slowly ooziug from

reeking table, my powers of thought

were buzzing hints of a mob.

way, proceeded to riiiiculo tho Presi

at tho same timo hurls a few stubborn
facts at the President and tho Repub

44 I see that the President has de
clared that he is to make war on
trusts," said Judge Griggs. "A light

Tu k Spider Wkb.?Every student
and observer in nature, says the Chica
go Tribune, noou iearns that the spider
remains in the center of the web that
it may feel the slightest motion caused
by any luckless insect which has been
caught in the slt<:ky substance. Now,
if one will look closely at the spider he
will see that it hangs head dowuward
One day, by suddenly frightening a
spider, a man learned the secret of its
constant position upside down in the
web. It dropped head down, and
stopped when about half way to the
ground, and swung slowly to and fro
from the end of a long thread of wob.
if it had beeu head up in tbe web it
would have beeu broken. After the
spider had swung at tho end of its web <
for somo time it thought all danger
had passed, and turned and climbed up
again. It rolled the web thread up
with its foro-loge aud then throw it to
tho ground. This was evidently done
to keep it from becomiug tangled with
1 any of the web proper, or with grass
or weeds nearby. Any one who has
touched a wob kuows that it 18 sticky
and hard to ravel when once tangled.
Certainly this bit of instinct is not ab
sent from the spider's brain.

its safety by pounding the explosive
