'tnaq any single not can do, and many peouliarities of different per sons may be noted in the performance of this social custom. Who would expepb to get a handsome donation- of donation at all--from a man who will give two fingers to be shaken, and keeps the others bout as upon an 'itching .palm 7" The hand coldly held out to be shaken and drawn n s aq ..oon as it decently imay a' cold, selfish character, fi'tl haAd who seeoks yours cor dially, and unwillingly relinquishes its ,warm clasp, gives a token of a arn disposition, and of a heart full of moplat y for humanity. 1'Mew much that is in the heart can be made to express itself through the aujuey of the fingors I Who, having Ul~feUOJIWgt)y"e$e o ý by.lo, a Irr of the hand from at dying ted whe. the touiii& has ceased to 6(IrtW . a.p bof the hanmd i s warmth and ardor, while i itt, laxtouch without it grakl indi Ptm O the Ppposito characteristics. In Sgrasp of persons with hIrgo t generous minds, there is a "wol- ' expression most refresh i table to kindred spirits, ibt' ; an presents you with a few cold, clammy, lifeless fingers, feol !g very muoch like a dead fish, and c* 'you to do all the shaking, it .l. ntarally make you think of the E66Itl-n.8 other cheerful things. .-:. to this style there is a Labit Aoang a rude class of giving your hand a crushing grasp, which is often most painful. In thltse cases there may be gront kindness and at '"strong" a'Tetion, but it is as crude as it is hearty. If the grasp is warm, ardent and vigorous, so is the disposition. If it is cool, formal or without emotion, so is the character. If it is magnetic and animating, the disposition is the the same. As we shake hands so we feel, so we are. How Poker was Saved in the West. Poker was the glory of Califor.ina, and San Francisco in particular. To endeavor to regulate this great game so that it should have rules that could be pointed to as official interpreta tions of the mysteries surrounding it, official action became necessary, be cause the untraine.l minds of ama tours were begiunin3 to get very muddled over the values of different hands, and there was danger that the confusion would increase, and a hope less corruption of the great game wotld result, if prompt action was not taken. In 1874, howevwr, Sau Francisco arose to the occasion, and, through the oard of supervisors, psHeOd a law which forever put a stop to strife, and which saved th greant gamo of poker fromutter ruin. This Taw which stands now on the statute book under the head of section 816, roads as follows: "Every parson who, at the game of 'poker,' or who, on betting on at hand of cards, as a 'poker hand,' sh ill, by c !laim, pretense, or representatio 1 that three or four cards of the same suit beat three aces, or threes of any kind, obtain or take any money, personal property, or valuable thing, with in tent to cheat and defraud, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and shall be punished accordingly." Since that day, when our board of supervisor laid down the law which should stand until time is no more, poker has boon a scientific game, to which are brought great talents, great experience, great patience, and great skill. The beard of supervisors s edI poker from ruin. A Severe Hurt. While three cavalrymen were riding down Heleon avenueo towards the base ball grounds yesterday afternoon the horse ridden by one of them- a frac tious and not well-broken animal- - took the bit in its tooth and darted down.tho road at its best speed. On approachin the place where the base ball game was in progress the rnan way collided with a wood haulers team, standing in the road, and the rider (Sergeant McCafforty, of Co. A. Second cavalry) was thrown to the ground with gro.t violence. In fall ing he struck the end of the wagon tongue, and the iron upon the end of the tongue out open his left thigh for a distance of about six inches and al most to the bone. Tho injured man was picked up sonseless and placed in an ambulance, in which ho was brought up to the hospital. It is not known ais yet whether ho has receiood internal injuries or not.
