Strange Experiences of Five Geehokus Gamblers. THE HANDWRITING ON THE WAIL. How Tfonr ot tlio Bad Men Referred To Tried to Alter tho Figures of Fate, and tho Part Tlaycd by the Fifth In tbe Tragedy That Follovrcd. TV made an election bet down in Geehokus Dace that was the ruin of several prophets, lind will probably be talked about as long as tho town stands. It was made in John Den nett's carpenter shop. Besides being carpen ter John is the coffin maker for thoso who cannot afford to import a superior article. John and I are business acquaintances. 1 am the local physician. I ought to say that this bet was made sev eral years ago, and its results had nothing to do with tho present administration, state or national. One day about three weeks before the elec tion all the prophets and seers were congre gated in John's shop, telling what they knew about the plans and methods of destiny. Si GrindaU sat on a barrel, and the general air of certainty that clung about hw predictions tvould lead the hearer to suppose that Si ihook tho hand of Providence ever' morning before breakfast, or stood in somo other equally intimate relation to infinite wisdom. "Si Grindall," said the fat carpenter, shak mz his finger at tho long, lank local politi cian, "when you get to tollin' what you know 'bout nn election you can jaw the nails out'n a hard pine coffin. An' it don't mako any difference how the thing comes out you always Bay: I told ye so.' Now I want to pin you an' the rest o' those fellers down to hard facts. You take this piece o' chalk an1 write your predictions down on this wall an' sign your name to 'em. "We'll all do the Eame, an' the man that misses it the furthest has got to wheel the one that comes the near est round the mile square on the day after election, in a wheelbarrer." "I dunno, John," said Grindall, rubbing his chin meditatively. "Them loolcs like big odds. You weigh part of a ton, an' I reckon your shadow'd pull down a pair o' scales 'most 's much my whole body." " Tain't a question o' body, Silas; it's brains," said the carpenter. "You pretend to have ail there is in this vicinity, an' you ought not to irit stuck, THE CAHTENTEai PREPARES A VEHICLE. "I don't think I would, John; au' I don't think you'd win. I'm free to say that I never see a man whoso viows was more fre quently stood on their heads by tho result of an election than yourn is. But you might win by accident, an' I might lose. An when I gaze on the size o' your surcingle, John, it don't look hardly fair. I've said, year in an' year out, jest how every blamed election was goin', an there's plenty of men wfao'd say so if they was alive today; but it don't stand to reason that I can go on forever without matin' one single blasted mistake 'bout anything; now, does it? Tain't in tho power o' mortal intellect " 'I dont want no evidence from doad mon," replied tbo carpenter. "Thar's tho chalk, an' thar's the wall. What's your idee about the majority in New York, New Jersey, Con necticut an' Indiany? Them's the things you've boon tellin' us about these last two months." "Go in, Si," said Charley Clark, tUe shoe maker, ''an' Til take the chalk when you git done with it. I ain't had a froe ride since I used to drive tho hoarse, an' I'd like to see bomo o' you loafers scratchin' up over the hilJ witii mo in the wheelbarrow." At this poiut-I expressed a modest willing nebs to try my luck, and my c;mmple was followed by Jones, who kept tho bowling alley, and Landlord Hiram Blake, o tho ho tel. Si hang back a little, because his spe cialty is lying out of the thing after the ro turas corno in. He couldn't see any way to get around tho figures ou the wall, but finally he came in when he saw that there wa no way out of it. We put down our predictions and then sat down, and each man showed the others why it wasn't possible for him to loso. "I fed so darned sure o' this thing,5' said the carpenter, "that I'm going to build a wheelbarrow specially to fit my shape. 1 don't reckon there's one in town today that will hold me. You fellers bolter begin tak ing exercise, because I'm gaining flesh al most every minute." He sot to work on tho wheelbarrow that very day and tho boys dropped in pretty reg ularly aftor that to guy him about it. "That barrer'll fit yo pretty well, John,'" laid Si Grindall, "but I reckon you think the pOfetana.sfccrsiSp o' this town would fit ye bet tor in case your figgers come out right. You'll never git into either of 'em; now, you hear me." "Don't talk to me, you lump o' putty on two sticks," howled the carponter, with whom tho poctmastership "was a tender sub ject. "A two cent ijostajo stamp would carry you all over the United States if it wasn't agin the law to send indeoent niani-er through the mails." These pleasant remarks will servo to show that there was a lively interest in tho hand writing ou tho wall; and it will be under stood that, as election day approached, tho men whose reputations as prophets trembled In the balance began to lose sleep. 1 was a little nervous myself. It was for ray inter est that Dennett should win. because I knew that the man who wheeled him a mile would be my patient so long as I could keep him alfm. By the same token, I didn't care to ItM, myself. The carpenter's wheelbarrow yrm fished, and Si had broken his suspend ars iryiag to lift him in it, j'jst for fun. We were all afraid of tho big man, because he bad been very conservative with the chalk. On the night of the election the little tele graph offica was crowded. Si Grindall sat oa the "wood box in a cold perspiration; the rtioemakur chewed tobacco with nervous en ergy; while the slab-sided Jones looked at Dennett's ample form and whispered to me that he "might be called out o' town most any tolnute," an his grandmother wasn't expected to live.

He Has Tliree Secretaries and Spends $1,500 a Tear on Clothes--Clark Inser goll's Real Estate Speculation Wealthy Widows Easy to Get Into Society. Special Correspondence. Washington, Dec. 16. The most luxurious senator is Mr. 3rcMillan, of Michigan. He is one of the few very rich men in America who have learned how to live at ths same time that they were amassing fortunes. Sen ator McMillan not only knows how to live royally, but to do that and perform a pro digious amount of work. He keeps three secretaries constantly employed, and not one of them lias any time to idle away. One of the secretaries attends to the senator's rail road, lumber and corporation affairs. These are very extensive. There is not much of importance in on industrial way in the state of Michigan that Senator McMillan is not in, and heavily. Some years ago a queer sort of partnership was formed, Mr. McMillan and one of the famous family of Newberry, of Michigan, being the contracting parties. Tho two men were together in everything. They bought railroads, salt mines, iron mines, lumber mills, car shops, street railroads, everything which seemed to promise returns. Both grew rapidly rich. Nor were they close together iu business alone. Their families were intimate. They rode, walked, dined to gether. If McMillan went to New York, Newberry was his companion. Of one of the companies they were the leading spirits in, McMillan would be elected president and Newberry treasurer. Of the next one, New berry would ba president and McMillan treasurer. Such fast friendship in business and social intercourse is rare, and it is a pleasure to record that the ties were never severed by quarrel or coldness. It was one member of this Newberry fami ly who as a young man started a most novel sort of ejaculation in Detroit. He was heir to considerable property, but could not come into possession of it till an aunt or somo other aged and inconvenient relative should be out of the way. Ho tv aited with as much patience as possible for the disappearance of this liv ing obstacle, but finally called upon a num ber of wealthy men, of whom I believe Sena tor McMillan was one, and said to them: "1 am now a vounc man. I will never be youn? again, and I want to have a good time while it is possible. I may be compelled to wait twenty years, or thirty, for my fortune; meanwhile I am comparatively poor, bound AN EXQUISITE BUT A HUSTLER, down, repressed, wearily waiting. You mon guarantee me five thousand dollars a year till I gt pos-ession of the property that is com ing to me, and then you suall have one half of that, whatever it amounts to." Tne rich men put their heads together and concluded that would bo a good thing to do. They j guaranteed young Newberry the five thou- j grown rich as a dry goods merchant in Chi sand a year till the death of his aunt, and the cago, came down to Washington as a retired young man at once started out to have tho good time which ho had been pining for. In a fow months the aunt died, and after a con test in the courts the coterie of rich specula tors in death were rewarded tv ith a decision which gave them all that had beeu nominat ed in the bond a comfortable fortune for each of thfiu. The senator's second secretary is his politi cal manager, and one of the shrewdest poli ticians in the stato of Michigan. There is . nobody of importance in the state that ho dees not know, no trick in the game of poli tics with which he is not familiar. That his services are of great value to the souator is witnessed by the salary which ho receives. Th senator turns over to him precisely the Bum which the United States allows each of its members of congress. The political ex pert private secretary is ono of tho necessary appendages of the rich senator, who is likely to havo a contest for rc-olectiou. A numher of senators hire such men aud pay them snug talaries. In soma cases they are abler men in pvery vray than the senators themselves. A third becrotary is employed to attend to Mr. McMillan's extensive correspondence. McMillan is a ninu of remarkable capacity for work. You -wouldn't judge him that way by taking a look at him as he siU iu his seat on the floor of tho senate. lie appears moro like au exquisite, a diplomats or society knight than liko a man of work, a business miiu who has forced his way from poverty to uilluence, and an executive who directs, and ably directs, tho affairs of a dozen largo cor porations. Liko many another senator ho hab a favorite pose ou tho floor, ono which ho assumes quito unconsciously. Resting easily and gracefully against one sido of his chair, in order to take the stiffness out of his spinal column, neck turned a trifle out of perpen dicular, tho whole body in a stato of relaxa tion without lavk of dignity, ho sits by tho hour lauguidly twirling in the fingers of his right hand a pair of eye glasses, whilo anO other pan- sit upon his nose. "With all his ork, the senator finds time to ride horseback two or three hours every line day, and often to drive an hour or go moro. Ho dins like an epicure, with plenty of leisure and appetite. The dinners w hich he gives are among the richest and pleasant tot m town. For mny years he has mnde it a ride to ear a dress coat at dinner seven times a week. Few of our self-made million aires pay so much heed to the forms of the most polite society. McMillan dresses like an exquisite. The Guest that is made of silk and satin and fur is not too line to touch his skin. The most perfect patent leathers, built by a celebrated Parisian maker, are always to be seen on his feet. Ever- day he appears in the senate chamber in a white waistcoat, and not one of the-e coats is worn more than once before being sent back to the laundry. It is said the senstor has a greater number of suits of clothes than any other man in "Wash ington. His tailor bdl runs above $1,500 a year. Lit winter, when he first appeared in con gress, Senator McMillan boarded at the Ar lington hotel. There he pjnd for his keep at the rate cf l,o00 a month, and never sus pected that it was a pretty large sum. I doubt if he is living as cheaply uowT though he is housekeeping. Seeing on Vermont ave nue last spring a house which pleased him, he aske 1 a real est&to roan to buy it for htm and, like the shrewd business man he is, lim ited the price to a figure which he was care ful fo put in writing, "lb him that hath shall be given'1 appears to apply to rich men, for none but a man of wealth would have had tho good luck to buy a house in that manner ?il,GO0 cheaper than be had expected to buv it. Yet that is what Senator McMillan did. and he could now sell the place for at least $0,000 moi-e than it cost him. Speaking of fortunate real estate specula tions in Washington reminds me of a story which I heurd the other day about two men who are now dead. Pension Commissioner Raum vus speaking about Robert G. Inger soll, his old friend, wnea no hapoened to aatioijjplark.lncfrspll. Rci?xt i dead br- tner7 over wTwse body the oloquent Barrister delivered that famous oration. "Clark In gersoll," said Mr. Raum, "once owned a nice lot of real estate in Washington. It was & tract of twelve acres, if my memory serves me right, in the northwestern part of the town, around what is now Dupont circle. I believe the Chinese legation, the Blaine house now occupied by Mr. Leitar, Senator Saw yer's new house and Senator Hearst's palace are all on the ground which Clark Ingersoll once owned. Clark was hardly able to carry the land, which he was convinced would bo a good thing if held long enough, and in order to keep up the taxes and other expenses he found it necessary to borrow some money. Just at thut time he knew Mr. Conkling had a little money to put out, and he went to Conkling for it. Of course the loan was made, and it ran along for somo time. In gersoll was finally forced to dispose of a part of the property, which he did a short time before his death. "When Senator Conkling heard Ingersoll was in financial straits he took the mortgage which had been given him to secure his loan and started for his friend's office to make him a present of the paper. On his way he heard that Clark Ingersoll had fallen dead in court. He presented the whole sum to Ingersoll'a widow, however, and on account of this gen erosity she was enabled to save a part of the land in this city from forced sale. What she saved out of the wreck has since made her independent. If Ingersoll had lived and been able to save the whole tract he would now be a very wealthy man. Those twelve acres are worth a million dollars at tho very least." Somo people cannot understand why Wash ington real estate should have such a rapid rise in values. Perhaps they forget that wealthy families are continually coming to Washington in search of homes. Retired merchants and manufacturers, and men who have gone out of public life, look upon the capital as an ideal place in which to spend the evening of life. There is nowhere else in the country such a market for fine homes. In no other city of the size of Washington is such a largo number of handsome and costly houses built every year. A rather curious outgrowth of this populari ty of Washington as a place of residence for wealthy and indolent people is the colony of rich widows. Washington is full of rich widows, and if there is not an influx of fortune hunters as soon as the social season shall have gotten fairly under way I'll miss my guess. It seems that in almost every other carriage one sees rolling down Massa chusetts or Pennsylvania avenues one dis covers a lady more or less mature and more j or less comely, attired in black. The widows find here a comfortable climate, pleasant so- ciety and various attractions dear to the feminine heart, whether wife, maid or widow. In some cases that I know of the widows had such a lowly origin in the com munities wherein their lato husbands grew rich that they are glad to got away from childhood's scenes and to pastures in which their pedigree is not known to every one they meet. There is now a greater number of widows than ever before, and a society lady said to me, probably in jest, that a proposi tion had been made to set apart Saturday as the widows' day for receiving callers, that being the only day left unappropriated by the various classes of official society. The official society of Washington is a very easy one to make headway in. Almost any body can rub noses with cabinet ministera and senators by simply trying. No such bar riers are thrown up in front of society here as are to bo found protecting, liko Chinese walls, tho swell circle of Boston and New York. In Washington, the official society has a political basis, aud of course that is equality for all Thus many persons ambi- tious for social distinction are attracted t Washington by the very ease with which tha entree may be secured. A very good story told by an Illinois mem ber of congress clearly illustrates the meth ods of some of these socialhr aspiring person". A few years ago a gentleman, who had millionaire bent upou social conquests. H kuow nobody of importance here, and henco thought it would be a good idea to advertise himself. So he prepared a big dinner and invited all the members of congress from his state to attend. "I had a very good reason for not wishing to accept the invitation," said tho member who was telling the story, "but by a misun derstanding my wife wrote and mailed an ' acceptance vi hile I was at congress. On my I return she told me what she had done, and so I concluded I would make the best of 'it and attend the dinner. At tho appointed hour I was there. The host was very gracious, ' and tho menu was gorgeous, and there were j flowers and music and everything ono could wish for. But during the -evening my next neighbor, one of my colleagues in tho house, and myself got to talking rather confiden tially, and I told him that I had not intended accepting the invitation. Ho asked ivhy, and I told him that previous to that evening our host and myself had never had the pleas ure of meeting. Then he said that he was in the same predicament, and had come out of sheer curiosity. By some sort of Free Ma sonry we managed to pass the inquiry along the table, and it did not take us long to dis cover that with one or two exceptions all the guests were as sadly deiicient in previous personal acquaintance with the host as our Belves. I think that was the queerest dinner I ever attended in Washington." Robiut Ghates. Do the Dying Suffer Pain? The rule is that unconsciousness, not pain, attends the final act. A natural death is not moro painful than birth. Painlessly wo come; whence wo know not. Painlessly we go; where we know not. 2fatare kindly provides an anaesthetic for the body when the spirit leaves it. Proviotis to that mo ment, and in preparation for it, respiration becomes feeble, generally slow- and shoA, often accompanied by long inspirations and short, sudden expirations, so that tho blood is steadily less and loss oxygenated. At the fame time tho heart acts with corresponding debdrty, producing a slow, feeble and often irregular pulse. As this process goes on the blood is not only driven to the head with di minished force and in less quantity, but what flows there is loaded with carbonic acid gas, a powerful anaesthetic, tho same as derived from charcoal Subjected to the influence of this gas, the nerve centers loose consciousness and sensibility, apparent sleep creeps overtho system, then comes stupor and then the end.

A "Southern Rights" convention met at Nashville" on Jane 3, ISoO, before the com promises were complete; bat the delegates, representing less than half the districts ap pealed to, and having been chosen by less than a tenth of the popular vote, wisely con cluded that the south was overwhelmingly for the Union in any event, and adjourned without special action. In Mississippi the Democrats, as a party, tookhigh ground in favor of insisting on further guarantees. As it is highly important to fix the stato of sen timent at that era, the annexed account, written at the time by a northern man, is quoted: "In JEssissippi. the contest is no less ani mated. It was brought on by tho issuing of a prociamrtion by Governor Quitman, call ing a state convention for the purposo of taking measures of redress. A private letter, written by Governor Quitman, has also been published, in which ho avows himself in favor of secession. On the last Saturday in October a mass meeting was held at Ray mond, at which Col. Jefferson Davis was present and made a speech. He was strongly ia favor of resistance, but was not clear that it should be made by force. He thought it possible to maintain the rights of the south in the Union. He was willing, however, to leave the mode of resistance entirely to the people, while ha should follow their dictates implicitly. Mr. Anderson replied to him, and insisted that the Federal government had committed no unconstitutional aggression upou the rights of the south, and that they ought, therefore, to acquiesce in the recant legislation of congress. Senator Foots is actively engaged in canvassing the state, urging the same views. He meets very vio lent opposition in various sections." J. B. 1 Evening Suit for a Small Boy. If you know a very manly little boy of 3 or 4 ypars, tell his mother about an evening suit I saw.

It was a sweet thiug, calculated to rejoice the heart of a military minded male juvende. Loudon Truth. In Court "How comes it thatyou commit ted a robbery in so crowded a strr-ft in full daylight?"

Heat Along the Floor. Heated air prefers the top of the room, and thus leads to the consumption of a large .amount of fuel in order to get a small amount of heat on the floor, where it is most needed. A European invention is so designed aud ar ranged that about 50 per cent, of the heat i; reflected upon the floor. Not only is the heat reflected upon tho floor, but the heat hi the products of combustion is utilized in warm ing tho air of the room, which puts it in cir culation. So economical is this stove that abont 3o per cent, of tho entire heat units contained in the gas are made available, as against iu per cent, iroin com graie uix-s. iu all bedrooms, and for heating in moderately cold weather, stoves of this character, from, a sanitary point of view, would be worth their weight in gold; for in ono minute after lighting tho gas jets the reflected heat is felt upon the floor.
