No Help for the Dyin£
THE extreme callousness of the old English
gamblers, or gentlemen, a> they were then
called, i> illustrated by the following ac
count which Horace Walpole, *h<- celebrated
Utter writer, gives of a curious occurrence ;it
White's coffee house in London.
In one of hi- epistles to Sir Horace Mann.
under date of September r, 1750, he says:
"They have put into the paper .1 good story,
made at White's. A man dropped down dead
at the door, and was carried in. The club im
mediately made I>et.s whether he was dead or
not; and when they weie going to bleed him,
the wagerers for his death interposed and said
it would affect the fairness oi the bet, and
they Rtoppe ti — efforts."
Hurd on a Drowninf Man
VIEUXTEMPS, the famous violinist, used
to toll the following story:
When crossing London bridge one day, h<
■was suddenly brushed aside by a wretche I
tatterdemalion who climbed the parapet and
plunged out into the river. The foot passen
gers crowded around immediately to watch
the unfortunate man as he rose to the surface,
and in a trice some one shouted, "111 bet he
drowns!"
"Two to one he'll swim ashore'" was tin
an ■'■•■' The rest of the pedestrians joined
m the betting.
Meantime Vieuxtemp- rushed down t< the
river bank, so ured .1 waterman and rowed oui
to the rescue. Just as the boatman was about
t> reach f< nth x< • grasp the ]«>or fellow, wh< > by
time was floundering about in the water,
laving lost his desire for death, the specta
■ • ibove cried out: "Leave him alone!

A CURIOUS bet thai partakes of thei aturi
of a practical joke went to th< art ii
the town of Ddle, France, in 1634. A citizen of
the district offered to pay ■ ne of bis country
men twenty-four franc - in ad van. c if he w iul I
agree to furnish him with a number of grain:
of millet in proportion to the nui
dren born in the town within a year One
grain of millet was to ■ givei for the first,
two foi nd, four for the third,
for the fourth and o on, doubling the 1 1
for each child.
Accepting the apparent! offer,
the unlucky Frenchman attempted to carry
out the provisions; but sixty-six children
were born within the specified time. 11< wa
astounded at the en< rmous quantitie of gram
required to fulfil the contract, and appe.de.!
to the courts ior annulment of the wager, on
the ground that it wa 1 unded ■ n an impo -
-ible condition.
The ju.:g«- grant peal; but ordered
him to return the twenty-lour francs I
r> eived and to pay twenty-four in -
Elements "Were Against Him.
THERE were few frenzied financiers in Eng
land at the beginning of the eighteenth i en
tury, if the banker Bulliot, of whom the follow
ing story is told, can be taken as an example.
The feast of Saint within, July 15, 1725. was
a particularly wet and stormy day.
Trusting implicitly in the old superstition,
which says that if it rains on Saint Swithiri
Day it will rain for forty days thereafter,
Bulliot opened a pool for everyone who was
willing to bet against him. The affair attained
so much notoriety that the wager was reduced
to writing. _ „ • , „
"If dating from Saint Swithin s Day,
reads the memorandum, "it rains more or
little during forty days successively, Bulhoi will
be considered to have gained; but if it ceases
to ram for only one day during that time,
Bullio'. has lost."
For two weeks it continued to shower every
day and -■• confident did the banker become
that he accept as stakes not only money
but gold headed canes, jewels, snuil boxes,
and even clothes! When his ■ a : 1: gave out
he offered notes and bills of exchange. An
other week passed, and Bulliot s star was still
in the ascendant. . .
But when the twi nty- • „nd day >.hik into
the west bright and cloudless, the unfortunate
banker was mined.
