Dr. William Thornton, who is thedefocd aal io tbesomewbat remarkable suit brought by lue proprietoi of u ^aa>bii>ig bouse to recover $15.8(30, which thi> doctor won at the roulette wheel, bae quite a reputation in P.oetou for playing big stakes. There is an interesting story oi his run of luck at the Savage Club. At first ho lost heavily, but kept uu playing, aDd on tbe tuoruing of Feb. 1 last bis luck returned with a rueb. Ho won on every play. Ke eat down to the wbae! soon after midnight, and didn't t up uatii long afrer daybreak. Where ever be placed bis chipo?and each oue rep? resented $5-tbe bell stopped. There was only $4,000 in tho bank, and that was soon the doctor's-. He played siogle numbers, and every time he won bia stakes were mul iipled thirty-five times. As the night wore uu the Doctor found his pile of chips aeadi ly increasing, and ho weakened. He didn't dare go home wftb so much money. He was alone, and with tbe customary suspicion of gamblers be whs afraid to ieave tbo bouse so be kept ou playing, hoping that bis pile would dimiuisb enough to re? move some of the temptation to rob and perhaps murder him. Ho played recklessly, but. be couldn't lose. At last, when tbo day was weil advanced and the sidewalks were crowded, the Doctor decided he bad hai enough. His winnings for the night wer*- $10,000. He took ?1,000 in cash and u check fur jG.COO. Henry Reeb, thb proprietor of tbe club, who bad played) against Dr. Thornton, borrowed tbe money auil cashed tbe (heck that afternoon. The oexl nigbt tbe Doctor tiied bis luck again, ?nd carried oil $2,000. Tho third night he won au (qual amuunt, and on February 4 tie stopped after winning $1 000. That wit - the end of bi^ running luck. A few days latter Dr. Thornton again visited ibe clut) and lest $6.000 He didn't have the cash with bim, and tendered bis note, payable in fouitten day?. It wa3 accepted without any hesitation. It is said, however, that the Doctor dishonored his note. He took tbe ground that the note was given by him in consideration of money lost at gam? bling, and that tbe note was not held in good faith. This made tbe gamblers mad, and tht-y took legal steps to get even with (he Doctor. They attached bis real estate | and bank account and demanded a refund? ing of the $15,000 won by him. It is that cuse which is cow ou trial. Fiendish Duelists.?The particulars of a very singular duel recently fought in Taos f co., N.M . are just coming 'o light. An Indian settler named Wankinshee and Juan Vergesi a wealthy Mexican cattle nun, repaired to a *pot about six miles from the town of Taos, just at the breuk of day to "settle au old grudge" The weapons were butcher knives, and by the method of fighting agreed upon each man was to submit his band to hi* opponent and have one fioger cut off, tbo cutting to be done alternately and the] man who fitst evinced sigDH of pain to be stabbed to the heart. The Indian by toss secured tbe Brat cut, snd deliberately taking the hand of the enemy with a quick Btroke Bevered hU fort-finger The Mexican never Uttered a sound. Tho Indian reached out his heni and oil came his thumb. This continued in silence until tbe cattleman had lost four fingers and the Indian four. When the Indian reached for his foe's left hand the lattot's second becoming frighten? ed at tho fearful flow of blood, tent a bullet through the Indian's heart. Tbe affair is one of the mcst barbarouB and inhuman ever h; ard of in any land and all parties to it should be prcBecuted. It is thought the cattle man will die. Love's Dream Quickly Ended.?The elopement of A. R. Matcbett, son of the wealthy paper box manufacturer, of Pitta burg, with Mart , daughter of E. D. Wilt, manager of ibo Grand Opera House, which occurred last July, has turned out to be a case of repentance at leisure. The young lady, after three months of wedded life, has returned to her father's home, and tbe hus? band has put an advertisement in tbe news? paper warning persons not to trust her, as he will uot pay ber debts. Tbe youug wife who is petite and pretty, says she thinks It was "real mean of Dick" to put the notice iu the paper, and now she will oot go back to him. MEDICINAL. A VETERAN.
