Rules on Poker?By Gen. Skunk.
1. Don't buy half as many cbips at
tu? start as the other players. The
expectation is that you will win,
and if you lose it is bettor to bor?
row or "owe" up.
2. Never ante up until some ono
tells you to, and then say that you
have and stick to it, which will
generally persuade some one else
to "come in" twice. This rule,
though an excellent one, must be
followed with discretion. If prac?
ticed too often it is liablo to pro?
duce unpleaBent feelings.
3. Toward the end of the evening
it is always better to owe up your
anto "for a minute" than to put up,
as the winner of the pot frequently
forgets to charge up the debts, and
none of the other players will re?
mind him, as they may wish to do
the same thing.
4. "When the oredit system begins
to creep in, as it generally does
about the middle of the game, you
should always owe up if possible,
and bet chiefly against those who
always put up. This is one of tho
most important rules. To win in
cash and lose on credit is the great ]
seoret of successful poker playing.
6. In dealing, always observe the
bottom card, which you can easily
do before the out. Then, by notic?
ing how thick a cut is made, you
oan tell whether that cord goes out.
This may help you in the draw.
G. Keep a sharp eye on the dis?
Cards. They may be of sorvice if ]
your draw is not satisfactory.
7. When you are "in luck," watch
your opportunity from time to time I
to put some of your checks in your
pocket without being seen. This
will enable you to "owe" up if luck
turns, and will prevent your being J
8. "When any one wants to buy
more cheeks and you have plenty,
get him to buy of you, if possible,
in preference to the bank. It Ena?
bles you to conceal tho amount of
your winnings, and, besides, the
bank may not bo able to pay up.
9. When you are "chipping out"!
for drinks, &c, put a cigar in your
pocket evory once in a while. You
are sure tob e so much ahead of the
game, and they come in very handy,
even when ybu don't smoke.
10. Never permit anything to
make you forget for a moment that
the whole object of your game is to
save your own money and secure
somebody else's, and let everything!
you do, however trilling, tend to
this desirable end.
.11. When tho game is over, if
you are winner, deny it entirely, or
fix. the figure as low as possible; if
you are loser, declare that you
nave lost twice an much as you
really have. This rule is never de?
parted from. The money lost at a
game of poker always foots up four
times as much as tho money won.
12. When it is inconvenient to
i avoid paying your poker debts
entirely, use discrimination in the
matter. Debts to persons whom
you are not likely to meet very
often you can avoid. Many play?
ers feel a delicacy about asking for
a poker debt?these are safe ones

The symptoms of Liver Complaint are
uneasiness and pain in the side. Some?
times the pain is in the shoulder, and is
mistaken for rheumatism. The. stomach
is affected with loss of appetite, and sick?
ness, bowels in general costive, anil
sometimes alternating with lax. The
head is troubled with pain, and dull,
heavy sensation, considerable hiss of
memory, accompanied with painful sen?
sation of having left undone something
which ought to have been done. Often
complaining of weakness, debility and
low spirits. Sometimes many of the
| above symptoms attend the disease, and
at other times, very few of them; but the
Liver is generally the organ most in
