THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN: FRIDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 21, 1894. 1 L-Ci. We never conquer our trials By waging war. If we yield, Their menace or frown cannot drag lis down; Submitting is winning the field. They a re only the scouts who are testing The scheming of man. and his might; They are only the ghosts of invincible hosts Who conquer in every fight. But they never assail the purpose And grace of a duty done; While worry and fret are always met With a victory, easily won. We never conquer our trials By fighting; be steadfast, and wait; For tuo soul that is grand, by a higher com mand t Triumphs over all time, and all fate. Emma P. Seabury, in Chautauquan. WINNING A WOMAN. The Romantic Tale of a Veteran Commercial Traveler. "When I was a man of thirty," re marked a gray-haired three-score-and-tenitarian after the drummer had fin ished u rather unbelievable card story, "1 could shuffle the pasteboards pretty fairly myself, and it was only the vet erans who cared to tackle me, and they were usually sorry for it after wards. I was not .rich and proud then," he smiled softly, "and made most of ray living selling groceries in the south and we,st for a Baltimore house. I did the large towns as a rule, but I had a few good customers in out-of-the-way places, and I made it my business to-cultivate, them and get around to see them , at least twice a year. Among them was a merchant in Mississippi, and he had a daughter who was one of the. stjeetest, prettiest girls I ever saw. In . fact she was so at tractive that I fell in love with' her and tried to marry her, but she was silly like most women when they are young and sometimes when they are not so young, and instead of recipro cating my affection, the affection of a plain but honest man, I'll be shot if she wasn't wasting her affection on a handsome bon. a rein that's French for good for nothing," he explained "and I hadn't the slightest chance against him, although her father was on my side and did all he could to save her from ihe man sii3 would persist in loving. lie was undoubtedly a hand some fellow and one whose manners were fascinating, not only to women, but to men. With all his natural abil ity, hawever, and attractiveness, he was utterly worthless; a hard drinker, a brawler, a vindictive wretch and a notorious gambler. These qualities of the maa were well known in that locali ty and his reputation was not unknown throughout the state, while up and down the river he was known on every steamboat for the big games he played and his success. lie was the youngest son of a prominent and highly respec table faiuilj', and this to the girl seemed to offset his numerous defects of character. "Whatever it was, there -was no question that the girl was completely infatuated with him, and finally she eloped with him. This act of hers Drone ner lather s heart ana witnin a year he had died, leaving no property whatever, nor any family, as the girl was the only child and her mother had been dead some years. The loss or ab sence of any property which might be of assistance to the daughter did not affect her seriously, as her husband had some estate and managed by suc cessful gambling to maintain her in comfort the first year or two. With the death of the father and the mar riage of the daughter very naturally my interest in that locality waned and I lost track of the neighborhood and its doings for five years. Then I was called there on business and when I stopped at the only tavern in the little village I was more than surprised to find that it was kept by my former rival, whom, by the way, I shall call Jackson. He did not know me and I don't suppose it would have made much difference if he had, for with all his faults he was not a jealous man. Well, I kept my identity pretty much in the background and made up my mind to see how the marriage had turned out. I got an inkling of it the very first night, when Jackson came in just drunk enough to be ugly. He had changed much in the five years, and from being the handsome fellow he once was, he had become bloated, and all the bad streaks in him seemed to have settled in his face. His wife I had not seen, up to the time of his ap pearance in the evening. I was sitting in what passed for an office and he was there cursing a stable-boy. After he had finished with the boy he called his wife from the kitchen where she was at work, and when she came in frightened out of her wits, as I could plainly see, I never would have known her. She was thin and pale and bore every evidence of having received the most cruel treatment. I was shocked beyond expression, and it was not allayed by the way he talked to her and ordered her around, once even giving her a jerk by the arm thaU brought a cry of pain from her and came almost; getting me into the scrap. I kept still, however, and waited, and that night he grew so ugly that she called in one of her neighbors. to serve as a kind of protec tion. "The next day he was no better, but he went ofE and did not return until late. During the day she had a chance to sec me and at oncer recognized me. ou, Whether she was glad or sorry I don't know, but she broke down and had a nervous fit of crying for half an hour, and I got away until she recovered. When I saw her again she was quite calm, and for two hours she talked to me of her terrible condition. He had been all things to her a man should not be, and the community only par tially knew what she had to bear. He had beaten her and starved her and made her work like, a slave, and once or twice when she had tried to escape, lie had brought her back and kept herd in a dark room on bread and water for a month. There was no place for her to go in the neighborhood, and he never gave her a cent of money, so that she might have gone to some dis tant place. She was ashamed ( and afraid to appeal to the public for help and she was slowly being tortured to death. Fortunately she had never had any children. "We talked the matter over in all its aspects, and I asked ' her, if I could se cure her escape, would she go with me to my home in the north, for I had married and settled down like a sen sible man; and she agreed to it if it could be done without making her con dition any worse. I then began de vising ways and means of getting the poor woman out of this hell 'on earth, and by night I had my plans ready for trial. When Jackson came in that evening he was in better humor, hav ing won some money on a horse race, and he was not quite so ugly drunk as he had been. He was drunker, per haps, but it was not such a mean drunk as before. After supper I engaged him in talk, and along about nine o'clock I proposed a game of poker. It struck him just right, and we adjourned to a room upstairs with a couple of law yers and a judire who were stopping there over night, and'the game began. At first Jackson won right along, and as he won he drank, calling every now and then for his wife to bring him more liquor, and whenever she came into the room and- saw me the look she gave me almost made me kick over the table and fight the whole crowd. However, that was not my game, and I let on to her and the rest of them that I was about as drunk as Jackson was; but I wasn't. "At midnight we had reached the climax. The two lawyers and the judge had been raised out and Jackson and I were left for the finish. I had four nines, not a bad hand as hands went in those days, and I had an idea that Jackson hadn't anything to beat it. 1 also had my wits about me and Jack son hadn't, and I had five thousand dollars in my pocket, which Jackson hadn't. 1 had been bluffing like the mischief all through the game and J ackson had caught me for a good lot on my recklessness, but all he had was on the table when the other three passed out. That is all the money he had, but he owned three good horses. It was a game without a limit, as it often was in those days, and when 1 put down two hundred he saw me to j the extent of one horse. Then I went five 'hundred more and he went an other horse: then I went another five hundred and he went the third horse. Of course the man was wild now with liquor and the excitement of thegam, and when I laid down a thousand more he was dazen for a minute. Just then -his wife came in, and with a curse he ordered her out and was about to throw a bottle at her. She hurried away with an appealing look at me, and Jackson sat stupidly gaz ing at his hand and at the pile of money and contracts for horses on the table, and he was sure I was bluffing. I could see that, but he didn't like to take too much of a ch'ance. Then all at once a new thought seemed to come to him and he looked squarely into my face. . " 'By the way,' he said, 'you used to know my wife, didn't you?" . "I nodded coolly, though somewhat rattled at tliis unexpected recognition. " 'And you used to be in love with her,' he went on. "Again I nodded. I - " 'You wanted her once,' he ventured slowly, and I nodded again. ' 'By heavens,' he exclaimed, 'I'll put her against what you have there. Is it a go?' "Once more I nodded. " 'Gentlemen,' I said to the judge and the lawyers, 'make a note of that. If I win, the woman is mine to do as I please with. Is that agreed?' "Jackson assented with a string of oaths, and the lawyers got his signa ture to a contract to deliver his wife to me if the vgame went against him, or words to that effect. " 'Now!' he said in a tone of sup pressed feeling, 'what have you got?' "Very quietly, but with some little fear that I might miss it at last, I laid my four nines down on the table. "Jackson looked at the cards a sec ond, then, with a hoarse scream, he slung his own hand all over the room and dashed through the door. Fearing that he might mean harm to his wife we went pell-mell after him, but he did not stop anywhere. On he went out into the night, and we lost him in the darkness. I thought we might find him next morning dead somewhere, but we didn't. When we got back to the room we gathered up his hand and found that it consisted of three aces and a pair of tens, one of those hands the gamblers of those days, as a mat ter of sentiment, would bet everything they had on, and, bv the way, not a bad hand as hands go, is an ace full. "I never saw Jackson again. He did not return to tlie place ior two or three days, and when he did come back I had gone, and with me his- wife, to whom I had explained the situation. I made arrangements with the judge and the lawyars to restore to Jackson his horses, but I kept what money I had won and gave it to his wife. She went home with me, and in a year or so had secured a position, and always as a kind aunty to my children she was the jewel of the family; and the queer part of it was that, notwith standing I had once courted her, and might be charged with saving her on account of the old love, there was not a bit of that in it all, and she acted always in such a manner that I could no more have flirted with her than I could have flirted with my own sister. She just wouldn't have it, that Was all. As Isaid," concluded the old gentle man, "I never saw Jackson again, but I heard that with the money he got for the horses which 1 returned to him he went to New Orleans and was killed there in a fight over the card table."
