THE UNION RECORD.
A GAME OF BEAG.
On die railway which connects the
two great commercial towns of, Lan
cashire, many of the everyday passen
gers are accu ; tcmed to while away the
journey by playing cards together;
they know one another, and make up
their rubs beforehand, and even have
certain carriages retained at either ter
minus for their especial accommodation
and diversion. Whist is, of course,
the usual game among them, but with
souse-cf the juniors that beautifully
scientific game is voted dull and slow,
and they play brag instead —a dis
graceful taste, which is very properly
reprobated by the rest, and stigmatized
as “sheer gambling*’ even by those who
pass their days in the stock exchange,
and risk hundreds of thousands upon
scrip and share. However, it so hap
pened last July that I, a chance pas
senger between Liverpool and .Man
chester, with a return-ticket for the
day, found myself in a first-class car
riage occupied by five gentlemen plac
ing at the redoubtable game; and,
without Laving the least desire to join
them, I watched their proceedings with
some attention, and was rewarded bv
witnessing what was admitted by all to
be an unprecedented occurrence, and
one well worthy, if not of immortal
verse, at least a printed record. For
the first twenty minutes, I should men
tion, they played whist—of course with
two packs of cards; but upon the re
monstrance of the gentleman who found
himself cat out and obliged them to
make room for the fifth man at the
railway rug, which was their card-ta
ble, they changed the game to brag.
While my moral nature was shocked,
I could not Ledp being interested by
the secretircness of each competitor, by
the air of confidence with which they
backed an indifferent hand, by the af
fected hesitation which they continued
to brag on a good one, and by their
close scanning of one another’s coun
tenances, in which nothing but cunning
and avarice could he traced. And yet,
in sense of playing for big stakes, they
were not gambling. A sovereign or
thirty shillings was the most that had
been lost by any person, when, pres
ently, they having thrown up their
hands, two players began to back their
cards at such considerably high sums
as to arouse everybody’s curiosity to
know what they were staking on.
“Let me look at your hand, Jones,”
cried one ; “I’m not playing,you know,
and Smith will never be able to tell
anything by my face.”
“That’s true, ray dear fellow,” re
plied Jones, coolly; “If want of ex
pression could beget confidence, one
could trust in your face as much as in
any man’s. But I can’t let you sec
my hand—Smith, I brag five thousand
pounds.”
“I brag' ton,*’ was the response;
“and allow me to warn you as a friend
not to back yourself extravagantly, for
you 11 lose, my Jones—and you arc a
family man!”
Here took place a burst of laughter :
this was a new ruse, indeed, to" affect
interest in the state of an adversary's
pocket, in order to make him give in'
“Well,"’ replied Jones, “you're a
bachelor, it is true, but you cannot af
ford to lose twenty-five pounds, and
that is the amount of my next brag.’’
“I brag twenty-five pounds also,”
rejoined Smith, cheerfully.
“Then 1 will brag fifty pounds,” re
turned Jones ; ‘‘and sooner than go on
I solemnly tell you, you should give
me a hundred to look at my hand.”
“I wouldn’t give a farthing to look
at your hand ;” answered the other,
scornfully ; “I am really sorrv to ruin
you, hut your obstinacy brings it upon
yourself. \ou will have to part w ith
Mrs. Jones' piano as it is, I expect.”
“Sir, replied Jones with resolution,
“on the cards which 1 hold acre I would
brag Mrs. Jones herself with the utmost
confidence.”
‘‘You had better not 1” the bachelor
responded darkly.
And again there was a shriek of
laughter from the audience, who were
not permitted to spectators.
“Now, my dear Smith, lot us under
stand one another. If you continue to
play this game, you will never ride in a
first-class carriage again. I should be
sorry to be the means of driving vou
into the ‘parliamentary.’ Tell me how
much money you can afford to lose
without going to jail, and I will brag
that .’’
“1 will brag two hundred and fifty
pounds ; and you had better iri' c me a
bill of sale upon your furniture at once.
I am quite sure you haven’t got so’much
in your banker's hands.”
“I will brag five hundred,” replied
Jones, with Lis teeth clenched. “I w ill
brag my house and garden: 1 will brag
myself ai d my government situation.
If, instead of being in the express train
we were in the middle ages, and you
were the Old Gentlemen himself. I warn
you that I would brag my soul!'-'
“Then you would lose it,” retorted
Smith, “to a dead certainty : and 1
should have made a very indifferent
bargain. Now listen. Let the last
brag of two hundred and fifty stand;
and Robinson and Lloyd shall look at
my hand, and Brown at yours. Then
we will bo bound by their advice, and
if they say to either of us. ‘Stop!’ we
will do so.'’
“Very good,” quoth Jones, showing
his cards with a grim smile to his left
hand neighbor. I would have given
anything to see them, too, but being a
stranger I did not venture to do so.
“Do you think, Brown. I ought to give
in to Smith with a hand like this, or
not r
“It is quite impossible,” observed
Brown, solemnly, “that any man should
give up such cards. I think, under the
circumstances. I am almost justified in
saving that Smith cannot win."
“Whatdoyoueav ?” inquired Smith,
turning the face of his cards to his two
friends with the most careful secresv,
and watching for their reply with tri
umphant confidence.
“It’s absurd,” quoth Mr. Johnson ;
■‘you’re sure of winning.”
“I would lay a thousand pounds upon
such cards,” said Mr. Lloyd.
••Stop!” excla’med Jones; “I will
brag a thousand pounds myself, an 1
what he can't pay I will let him off, af
ter having sold his books t an l personal
clothing. We are now getting close to
Manchester. Let us each wrap up our
cards in a newspaper and go into the
station and get them sealed up; then
we can call for them in the evening
and brai all fLe way licmc. You mis
erable Smith ! you set out this morning
in competence; you will return a beg
gar !”
•‘You will, indeed !” corroborated
Brown.
“Unhappy Jones!” quoth Smith;
certainly, ‘whom the god- wish to de
stroy they first make mad.’ This
morning you probably complained of
the kidney being underdone at break
fast ; to-morrow your wife and children
will be in want of bread!”
“They will, indeed!” echoed Messrs.
Lloyd and Robinson.
“Gentlemen,” said I, “it seems to
me this matter will never be settled ex
cept by arbitration. I have not the
honor of the acquaintance of any of
you; hut I am an honest man, and if
both the players will show their cards
to me, 1 will tell truly which ought to
give in. This will be better and more
pleasing, whether to winner or loser,
than the utter ruin of either can be."
“I am quite content with that ar
tangement,” observed Smith, “al
shough, of course, it is a pecuniaty
racrifice.”
“You are a noble fellow!” exclaim
ed Lloyd and Robinson.
‘‘Then I am also content.” sail
Jones, “although 1 needs must lose by
the arrangement.
“Generous man!” exclaimed Mr.
Brown enthusiastically ; “yes, he needs
must lose!”
I rose from my seat and looked at
Smith’s cards ; he had three aces—the
best hand any man can hold. I turned
from him with sorrow in my heart for
the poor married man, and looked over
June’s cards. He had three arcs, also !
\\ hen they had left off playing waist,
the white packs had somehow got mixed
together, and so the two gentlemen had
all their excitement for nothing. They
had each enjoyed the luxury of ruining
a friend and of being magnanimous, at
a cheap rate; and if it had not bean
for the interposition of the writer, it is
my belief that they would have been
Imaging still.

Has long been the srrnv or the

that e lose study general !y ca:i-es the hair to fall off
:» maturely ; and hi c-nsequence, they have given
th. subject a portion of their valuable time, trying
■ • method t tl ir lost locks;
but ail their lau >r was in vain, until
rroFI-g'.'OK CIIOCKKTT,
af:t f tnc.r y your- i>f hard .dy dv.t- d tu this one
sul-ject, has produced an article Fiat
WILL MAKK HAIR GROW,
and which, by its use as a Hair-Dressing, will ef
fectually and always prevent its loss—ev«*n to ex
treme old age.
Happily, the AMYGALIXE. while possessing
the-e virtues, is a ra >-t delightful and agreeable
withc-nt regard to their virtue.
The Hair, when diseased becomes harsh and dry,
and commences l » turn g*ev. which is caused by
the m ii-.-ecretioTt, b the capillary glands, of aj e
culiar oil. All stimulants have their reaeiion; and
li-.e more the glands were stimulated—the sooner
the final loss of the much prized locks.
The principle of the preparation invented by
Pr-k.-.-r Cr••ckett is entirely - v th‘c op: o-Ue;- in
stead of stimulating the capiHary glands, be feeds
thesubsl
trie hair is fed by them—an the same principle as
giving water to a flower.
All we will say totho-o who are timid about try

stuiiulant?. and i-| ns harmless as filterered water,
and can be used du the smallest infant. As a

it is unequalled by any the world-basyet produced,
it keeps the L* ad entirely free of dartdrutl, erup

gl >sy j.oi obtained by any known com
pound. It will also he'found both plea-ant and
u.-t ful as a Cos;rclique, surpassing cold cream and
face lotions in its vSlects; for chaps, sore brea.-t
and tipples we know of no remedy that is equal
to it.
THE PEKFCjiE
used is such that the AMYGDALINE will always
retain it, and v ill not become rancid by age; in
fact, it is t erfect in every particular.
