The addition of another line, "They
called him Chunky for luck," was only
needed to complelo this history, for no
man was better known In his day, from
Pittsburg to New Orlean?, from Cincin
nati to Jlobllc, than Chunky Towlesl
Descended from a line of cavaliers,
who had settled at an oarly period In
Virginia, albeit, undistinguished by
alllanco with the house of Powlmttnn
(the Towleses being, ns a matter of fact,
mostly blondes!). Chunky Towles was
not what woulil be considered In the
modern sense an educated man. He
aSIAI.ti AIITS AND AMIS OF CULTUItR,
and In Ills very boyhood there arose n
dissonance between him and the school,
mutter, which he could never quite
overcome; though he developed a great
talent and pnscluu for dt ciphering hel
roglvphlcs, particularly upon the btcks
of knaves, and even of klmrs aid
queens, and was woll verted In the
ancient llgyptlan lore of Faro. Indeed,
the whole Htctaturo of t'ae plctorl il
paetvboatds he held at hit fl iger's en la.

Not too tall, like hla brother Arthur,

his adlpoee from the left to right in

ami to the date of a dire tragedy, which
darkened the latter year of bis life,
h temper was of the gayest.
There wa nothing of 'the John Oik

of fun out of hi work ami when It had
to be done he, like Ariel, did hU spirit

victims commonly exclaimed: "Let him

was constantly performing acts of mul

rather than drive a customer to the

THE OKA l, HISTORIAN
of those times, to whom I am Indebted
for many remlaUeesees of this hero of
a thousand Up a ad slams, though I re
member him very well myself, tell me
an excellent story illustrative at once
of hi goodness of heart and bU getdu
for his voeaHoB. At a fashkwalde water
ing place he observed some of the
young genlleeaea of hie own vicinage
play lag recklessly, and losing heavily
against a gambler from a distant coun
try. Immediately he stocked a pack
of cards, or, as the current phrase
"Mil KCK6 IK X tOU DUCK,"
which he artfully deposited oat the lap
of oswof his youthful diaeiples. But
the novice was ctuaaty in the higher

fame, and having made three unsuc
cessful ef oris to eateet the necessary
exchange. Chunky begajt to fear that
failure would ctown his well lnUmtioaad

gflinhltr, he suddeaily brushed an hat
aginary spider aT the lapel of the Ut
