itself, being, perhaps. one of the
(.rtadetl l»*llUeal Or«wi«aatloaa
ever devised by human forethought. So
-real had been the expansion under this
system that many of the newer
tols vied in size with our own Houses or
Parliament, and legislated for diatncteof

another fire which destroyed GO acres and

rose from her ashes, and to-dav stands a

The Brash Electric Light Works wars in
' this city and ia a couple of years had
sprang from nothing to a factory giving
employment to between 2,000 and 3,000
persona Pullman was still a more notable
example of such development, where in
eighteen months the car factory and a city
ol 10,000 inhabitants had risen out of the
pndrie? Telephonic communisation and
electric lightning were gvnwml in all the
more Important cities. Of Canada the
lecturer spoke in high terms, especially
of Ontario and Montreal; its forests ana
agricultural life waa striking, and the
?cenery of the great waterway from
Niagara Falls to Quebec and up the Sague
nay river modt impressive, the St. Law
rence being, in Mr. Travail's opinion, the
finest river on the continent. In the neat
Northwest Canada possessed tracts of the
moat fertile land larger than the areas of
Vranee and Spain combined, to which im
migration was now setting in, according to-.
| the latest accounts on the authority of the
deputy minister of tinance at Ottawa, of
l.OCO a day. The season had too far ad
vanced to admit of his visiting this section
of the continent, but what he saw in other
parte of the Duminion convinced him that
the moving spirit for the colonization and
development of this part of the coantry
was in oo way inferior to that on the Amer
ican side. New lVovincial Parliament
buildings had just been erected at Quebec,
and commences! at Toronto, which were of
similar dimensions to the various State
I capitols.
Tk« Mnlaloa of Federal Parliament
buildings at Ottawa waa a noble group,
comprising three separate blocks, and al
though h> larg*. were already said to be
inadequate to the growing requirements
of the country. Of Canada we shoald all
be proud, ana take every means of show
ing to her loyal people that she is in fact,
as well as name, an integral portion of the
British Empire, and the lecturer hoped the
day ww not far distant when a grand Fed
eral British Parliament, truly imperial,
would suec-t regularly at the historical cen
ter at Westmiuwlsr, where we should find
itpresentaUves from Canada as well as
those from every other part of the globe
over which the Union Jack now floats, as
bemblcd for the discussion and dispatch of
the imperial business of the empire as dis
tinct entirely from that of a local charac
ter. The New England States were remark
able as containing a greater proportion of
the descendants of tha original colonists
from Great Britain than other parts of the
fnion, and were iu many respects quite as
English as wo were ourselves, particularly
at Boston, Worcester, Hartford, arfti such
cities. In point of impressive grandeur the
SMarrysflbelMky Mountain*
in Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico,
with its high passes and deep gorges and
canyon?, Mr. Trevall placed before any
thing el»e on the continent; and it seemed
to be teeming with mineral wealth, now in
primary stages of development, as was to
oe seen in the return* of Colorado, which
had swollen from £500.000 in 1870, to over
£6,0&0,C00 last year. The public buildiugs
were next described, both the Federal at
Waahingtoa and the various 8tat« capitols
at the different seats of State governments
over the country, their enormons proper
tiocs,and the excel lent manner in which the
wtrk had been carried out, regardless of
expense, in the desire to obtaiu stability
ana efficiency. The courtesy and accessi
bility of thoee in official positions at Wash
ington and elsewhere was particularly
striking, and the readiness with which in
formation was given as to the details of
their own Government and country, rang
ing from an inspection of tho actual docu
ment of the "Declaration of Independence"
to the latest letter sent by H. M. Queen
Yictoiia as the credentials of the British
Minister, or the last departmental regula
tion of the Postoffice or Patent Office. In
conclusion, Mr. Tre vail observed that he
was delighted to tind that there was
(■rswlai Tfaranghoul the Nlate
a feeling of greater friendliness toward
Great Britain, which had only to be judi
ciously cultivated by our press and leading
public men to ripen into snch a mutual
understanding between the two great Eng
lish 9]>eaking nations as had never yet ex
isted since the Revolutionary War.and that
every Englishman was under a debt of
obligation to Her Majesty the
Queen for the means she had
taken to express so unmistaksble the deep
! sympathy of the English nation with our
American cousins in their recent calamity,
which he had little doubt from his own
observations, would bear good fruit in our
future relations with that country. The
j great extent of Mr. Travail's travels
through America, and his keen observation
of American manners and customs, aid
tke happy and fluent way in which he wn
able extemporaneously to deliver his lec
ture, kept tnejaudience in rapt attention
for nearly two hours.

LIEUTENANT GOLl'S TRAGIC END.
The New York Timet of Sunday
printed the following history of the
Princess Elminch, of Egypt, who, a
was indicated in recent dispatehea, en
couraging Arabi Pasha with money and
sympathy in rebelling against the
Khedive and in continuing the struggle
until completely annihilated by the
British:
' The Princess Klmioob, Mister of the
late Khedive, is theSrichest and mos
noted woman in the Kant, has great in
fluence with the fellah population, aud
tier's is one of tbt» prettiest, and is cer
tainly the richest, of the palaces of
Cairo. Sho la the largest laud-owner in
Egypt, and having received a European
education, makes good use of her in
come. She w now what the Krench call
"pansee," being a little over forty years
old, and the hot Egyptian nun, com
bined with a life of dissipation and un
retrained enjoyment, have played
havoc with one who, ten years ago,
was called "lb* Star of the East."
Egyptian, like Turkish women, are
married by their parents without their
wishes ever being oonsulted, so that,
as a rule, there is no preteuce of love or
even sympathy between theiu. Thus
was the Princess Elminch, at the age
of 16, given away to a Turkish pasha,
noted only for his wealth and dis
honesty, being old, ugly and ignorant.
The wedding took place in Constant!
1 nople, where the dowry of the princess
I was estimated at $80,000,000.
The princess received a uoerai educa
tion ; she speaks three European lan
guages plays the piano, sings well, and
w in mott reepecta an accomplished lady,
and in thirty days she had seen enough
of her husband to despise him and treat
him with contempt No Turk
dare enter hi* wife's private
apartment if she reverses her
overshoes, which every Turkish
woman wears, and leaves them outside
her door, and the Princess Elmineh
availed heroelf of this privilege while
she remained in Constantinople. At
the expiration of that time the doctors
advised her to pass the winter at Cairo,
whither she went, accompanied by her
husband, and where she has remained
ever since. Immediately on arriving
Efjypfc she laid herself at the feet of
the Khedive, telling him that she pre
ferred death to living with her husband,
who was in every respect her inferior,
and begged him to protect her. As she
was a favorite of his, he appointed her
husband to the generalship of Soukin,
on the Red Sea, and as he never arrived
there, it is presumed he was poisoned
on the way, this being the ordinary
method by which the Khedives have
from time to time silenced their foes.
The prince**, having thus freed herself,
commenced a life which for romance,
cruelty, profligacy, adventure aud dis
sipation, has not often been surpassed.
The old Shoubra ftilaee, extending
from the Shoubra road to the Nile, was
pulled down and the present grand
structure erected in its stead, containing
eighty rooms, all of which are decorated
and furnished in the most extravagant
fashion. Shortly after tho princess had
taken possession of the swaglio muuy
curious and incredible rumors were
afloat in Cairo, which at the time were
only whispered, but which subsequent
events proved to be true.
Trapping A Doctor.
There was in the service of the khed
ive a handsome young Swiss ortlcer
namod Goll, who had been in the
pope'9 Swiss Guard, and the princess,
happening to see him one day 011 duty
at the palace, became enamored of
him, and next day asked the khedive
to transfer him to her service, which
he did. The main gate to her palace
was then pulled down and over a large
archway a beautiful Swiss chalet was
built. Lieut. Goll took possession of it
as the princess' master of ceremonies.
From tnat time they seemed insepara
ble; wherever the. princess went
young Goll accompanied her, and
those who called to pay their homage
to the great Elmineh were Introduced
by him. lie had the management of
all her ewtate^abecome enormously
wealthy, and In a short time devel
oped into a public character. He went
to Switzerland one summer, and re
turned accompanied by his sister, who
became the princess' companion, a
unique position for a Christian to occu
py. About four years after this it-was
rumored that Goll had formed an at
tachment for a French actress named
Erneatine I)educ, and those os his
friend* who knew the Egyptians well
advised him to be oautious, as their
vengeance was terrible. He, itowever,
paid little or no attention to the war
ning. Goll suddenly disappeared,
leaving no traces behind him, and at
the same time Ernestine Leduo was
found strangled in her apartment* In
quiries were made about him in C£iro,
and the priuce«8 offered *>,000 for infor
mation that might lead to his recovery,
although she caused the rumor to be
spread that he had murdered P>nes
tine aud fled. Ten days later the
bapks of the Nile overflowee, and the
mutilated body of young Goll was de
posited by its waters in a field adjoin
ing the palace. The hands and fret
were tied together, the eyw had been
torn from their sockets, and the heart
had been pietced through and through.
The Swiss consul demanded an in
SuiajC, which, like most proceedings of
lis sort in the Eas, was wholly a for
mality. (toll'ssister was never again
seeen Egypt, though she subsequently
appeared in Berne, her native towu,
where she lives, but when esked about
her brother she is wont to say that the
subject is too ]>ainful for conversa
tion.
LiMt. Coil's Track Patr.
During the following seveu yearn
Cairo was startled by frequent pisap
pearances of young gentlemen belong
ing to the best native and European
families, and these remained unexplain
ed until the following incidenioccurred:
A voting Auatrsan do;tor nsmed Car
nelli bad been in Cairo about a year.
He had been a military surgeon in bis
own country, and, besides being a thor
ough master of hts profession, was
handsome, gay and dashidg. One
evening as he was driving on the 8hou
hra road, the fashionable promenade
and drive in be say a veiled
Turkish lady making signs'to him from
her carriage. He mentioned this to a
friend, who told him it must have
been the Princess Elminetb and that he
had better avoid her. Boon after that,
and of short intervals, Dr. Canelli re
ceived numerous gifts from an unknown
benefactor. The took the shape of flow
era, fruit, Jewels and even horses and
carriages and he was at a loss to know
whence they came. At about 11 a'ctook
one nights, as he was preparing.to re
tire, he beard a carriage rattle Into his
yard at a break-neck pace, ahd a min
ute later his servant appeared before
him. accompanied by an elegantly at
tired eunuch, who said that his rajw
* ter, Kiamil Kasha, had been suddenly
taken ILL and that he had a carriage
waiting for the doctor down stairs. As
net a moment was to be lost l)r. Canel
li dressed, rated downstairs and jatnp
ed into th •.carriage. After going some
distance the vehieie stopped, the door
was opened, and the eunuoh, who up
to then bad been sitting by the coach
man, entered, And at the same timee
another eunuch, who must have beea
waiting in the road, entered by the ap
posite door, holding a lantern in hh
left hand. The carriage im men lately
weut off at a tremendous -pace. All
this took place infer ten time than II
lakes to relate it. The dootor smt that
liia oase was helpless; On looks of his
Mack coaipaaJoaa convinced him that
rwhUnce woqld ho nsdesa TJhj car
jfege areat on rapidly far ten minute
ana Mopped under an archway, A Knte
wh cfased behind them, and Dr. 0»*
neOi mv a( » glance thathe was in the {
seraglio of the prinoees a prisoner, and
reeolved to make ibe beat he eonld
of the situation. He was taken to the
Swiss chalet, which had been built ex- <
pro*iy for poor Goll, and as everything
in it was perfect, he made himself as
comfortable m be oould under the cir
cumstance*.
The eunuch administered te his I
wante, and after a careful exarasoation •
of his surroundings he ate a dainty
little supper which he found ready for
him on the table, and without undress
ing laid hluiaelr down on the per-,
fumed bed. He arose early the next
morning, and bathed and break/mated,
and, flndingthathe was under no re
strain!, strolled into the beautiful gar
den. He was, however, close
ly followed by the eunuoh
who said his name was Kerim Aga, and
on approaching the outer gate on his
return, was politely advised to take
shelter from tne sun in the chalet. He
passed the day in looking over the
many well-selected books that were at
his disposal, and in vain attempted to j
draw the euduch into conversation. The
most singular thing of all was that, be
sides his attendant, he had not seen a
human being on the premises, and con
sidering that there were 100 slaves in
the princess' employ, he came to the
coattlhtuon that this man, Kerim Aga,
was ber only trusted slave, and that the
others were employed elsewhere, so

matter of fact, during the whole of the
twenty-three days that he was a pris
oner iu the palaoe Kerim Aga ana the
prinoees were the only persons he saw.
At 7 o'clock that evening the eunich
told him that the sick patient wished
to see him. They descended to
the cellar of the chalet and an iron door
being opened by the slave, they entered
a well illuminated underground pass
age, and after going some 200 yards,
mounted a small staircase, at
the top of which ilerim Aga,
opening another door, told tne
doctor to enter and disappearde. l>r.
Canrlli found himself in tne princess'
private upartment where he was wel
comed by her in person. For three
weeks, which appeared to hi apt as but
so many days, be remained in the
apartments. The mere be saw of the
princess the more he thought the world
had misjudged her, and he determined
to become her champion the day she
gave him his liberty, which he Imag
ined he could obtain whenever he asked
for it.

down the lantern aud in a second rushed
upon his victim with a drawn yataghan,
or heavy cutlass, that he had concealed
under his flowing robes, but C anelh,
being on the alert, slipped aside, and
doing SO upset the light. And now be

bythe noise of his foot-falls in the vault.
The doctor then had the presence> of

bis life, for although he could tell where
the assassin was, his own movements
where a mystery to his antagonist, who,
after vainly searcning for him, went

Then he remembered that Kerim Aga

that of the princess apartment with
the same key, and thinking that there
might be but one key to all the doors
of the labyrinth, he took it out of the

the cellar to the chalet, but also the
outer gate, leading to the Shoubra road
and to liberty. One© there hto first

And the dry good* man, who should
have known women a dozen years ago,
opened his lips and sighed mournfully
before replacing his cigar in his mouth.
With a few bulb the blue rings sailed
up, and, as he watched their flight, he
proceeded:
"i married tnree years a,?o a sweet,
pretty girl, whom I found, to my sor
row, knew more about sonatas, cray
ons, painted placques and fanoy work
than 8he did about making bread, keep
ing house and eking out a fellow's in
come. We took a flat on a fashionable
street—sky-parlors. There were eight
rooms; two parlors, a dinning and
dresslng-rootir, one chamber, a kitchen,
laundry and girl's bed-room. These I
fUrnished at a cost of $800, with Brus
sels carpet with border, odd pieces of
fhrniture, piano, bed-room net, machine,
kitchen goods and snough fancy kuick
knacks to make home pleasant A
cheap marble-top wash-ciand with a
glass case on top tilled wilJi specimens
of mineralogy made a pretty piece of
dining-roomnxmiture, and I improvised
aside-board from pine and varnish.
I'll venture you never saw a neater
home, nor one indicative of more re
finement. My mother's homo being
hard by we made ourselves welcome at
her board during the period of nest
building, and when all was ready I gave
the pride of my heart t he stipulated
amount—$20 per week—and we agreed
to have our first feast on th e first Monday
following. That was Wednesday, and
our opening chancing on my birthday,
she had sufficient time to invest in a
$38 morning robe for me, and charged
the remainder of the bill to my account.
I tell you Bhe had not the first idea of
housekeeping. Her ambition took in
every luxury in the nnuket, and I
could not con.vinoe her of the necessity
of limiting her expenses ta $20. An or
dinary supply, consisting of beefsteak,
potatoes, a salad, sweet meats, pound
cake, buns, coffee and one kind o( des
ert frequently e<Mt her $163, exolesive
of staples, fire and cost of preparation.
If she made a cake the ingredients
amount to a dollar on more, and the
kitohen fire necessary to bake it raised
the temperature of the fiat to torrid
heat. Then she was too tired to make
biscuits, and fifteen cents procured a
dozen of those articles at the baker's.
If she concluded to buy the dyseptio ar
ticle, there was a chance to get rid of a
troublesome 50 cents. Her domestic
could only outdo her. Her experiments
with bread monopolized an entire bar
rel of flour, although our tables showed
a decided partialily for Vienna bread,
which my gentle wife informed me
only cost seven cents a loaf. We had
beefsteak for breakfast, beefsteak for
dinner and beefsteak for supper—tbi^ee
pounds at every sitting—although we
were only a triumvirate the butcher
levied on us weekly for $11. My tem
per depended on good herlth. as It does J
with everybody; good health on good
digestion, good digestion on good food,
properly cooked, and my fortune on
ecomical home management. But
everything was moving in retrogade di
rection, ruin seemed impending, and
despair and faith were at the wrong
ends of the compass."
"And yet you advise me to marry?"
interjected the reporter.
"Of course I do—if you marry the
right woman."
"Humph! As if a fellow could tell
beforehand whether slie was the right
woman or the wrong one. Well, how
did you get out of the scrape—for I sup
pose you did get out of it?"
"In this wise. Chancing on a colored
woman, huge and black, who wanted to
hire out as a cholrwoman at the store, I
offered to give her a good home, $5 a
week salary, and $5 to run my house on.
The bargain was accepted. My little
wife has since been religiously excluded
from the kitchen, and we have never
had a break in the super-excellenoe of
the housekeeper's management, and I
am Informed that not only can she run
the house, but saves from $4 to $6 a
month from her allowance, which goes
to her own use. A Mascotte! well, I
should say so. And don't I delight to
reward her monthly with cheap dresses,
ribbons and other finery, and divide
every box of candy that comes into the
house?"
"And you consider that better than
living single?"
"Or course it's better than livina; sin
gle! (Jet married by all mean*, Gut if
you mtes the right liousowise, entrap
some colored cook and you'll save
money."
">Vhat are your total expenses?"
"I nay $40 for rent, $3 for gas, $40 for
board and help, and have the remainder
of my salary, $42 a month for clothes,

The dissemination of fiaahkrast through

In this demoeratio land, is proved in
many instances to lead to no marked
amelioration in the gnat science of
dress. The more eoeentito mod even
grotesque a fashion, the more readily it
Tends itself to reproduction on paper,
and the more generally It is accepted as
a startling novelty and one to be adopt
ed at all hazards, even by the feint
hearted, far no disgrace in life can ex
ceed that of being an antediluvian in
regard to dress. Thejresolt is that many
of tbe amaxing inventions of both
dressmakers and modistes, which are
frowned on by ladies of taste, who. have
in large capitals a broad field of selec
tion, are appropriated by their lea* for
tunate sisters condemned to the re
stricted opportunities of a remote west

The Woman WM Rain Rn»«l».
"Who la now the leading Hpirlt of the
czar's government?" asked a SL Peters
burg correspondent oflthe The Neva York
Sun of a high official. "A woman, as
usual," he answered. "Like other
monarchical couuties, we have always
had some woman at the top or |l>ottom
of onr government. Mine. Pobedon
ostzeft, the leading spirit of the Ruralan
government of to-day, is the wife of the
chicf procureur of the holy synod and
the most confidential counselor of the
czar. She Is young, beautiful, and am
bitious. She married Mr. Pobrdonostz
but a few years ago. Her husband, a
very old gentleman, is in love with her.
It is said of him that the kuightly mot
to, "Cod and My liady," 1* changed
into "(iod and My wife." and
upholds it is devoutly a* a knight of
old. He rises early, prays to God, adores
his wife, and then goes to see the Czar,
or the ministers, or the holy synod, and
everywhere he tries his best to carry out
the commands of his charming god
dess. Meanwhile she herself is not idle.
She receives hosts of fair visitors of high
rank, who, while offering their homage,
neize the chance of commending their
husbands, brothers, or cousins. Some
times this or that minister of state does
himself the honor of paying his respect*
to her. Occasionally she visits her
majesty the czaritza to cheer her soul in
her golden cage. And the czar himsolf
is there always at hand. Thus it has
come about that, while the czar keeps
away from the capital of his empire,
Mme. Pobedouostzeff* has somehow
found herself to l»e the center of the
Russian political world. Instead of the
<^ar'a policy, or the chancellor's, or the
minister's policy, we hear of the mad
am's jwlicy. With the modesty of an
ascending star, she does not reveal her
project*, but it is very doubtful whether
any liberal reforms will find favor with
her."
Marrying Inder DiflralUMk
In August, 1844, says the San Fram
clsco Chronicle, after an extraordinary
journey overland with an ox team, John
Sullivan and his sister Mary arrived In
Verba Buena (now San Franoiaco). and
lu two short months Michael Snore*
back, a native of Denmark, had won
the band of the brave girl, and they
were ready for marriage. On applying
to the Spanish priest at the mission, they
were Informed that they must ravide In
the county oue year before thplr mar
riage would be permitted. Not willing to
wait nor willing to forego the usual
ceremony of civilisation, they were in
great straits, till a British mau-of-war
dropped anchor at Saucelito. Ferry

days, and in their perplexity they ap
Slied to Taj*. James Buddingtou, of

lain on board the man-of-war, who
married them according to the forms of
the Church of Engfond, which gave
them a legal right to the relation of
husband and wife, but as good Catholics
they were not properly married till a
year later, when the mission priest re
married them aocordlng to the cere

SOME GORGEOUS GAMING HOUSES,
———
Slncetfce time when Joseph's bnDtferen
"spread his raiment between Umnh Mid
opt lota," men seemed to have loved
games of sham*. All our Itigi ellies
ere well stocked with gambling tobies
and even when people go to tha seaside
for a Heuoa of ml they still ollng to
this subtle pssiinn, and hug to their
bosoms the goddess of chance. The
facilities at Long llsaaoh for ubucking
the tiger" are lusexcelird by any Amsri
, can summer resort, and the throng of
ssd-heartened, light-pocketed men who
do not retire until early morning bear
testimony to the fort. Just below the
West End hotel at Long Branch Is one
of the most celebrated gambling pnlaoes
in America. It i» the custom here to
call all gambling resorts "club houses,"
and so this one is known as the Penn
sylvania club house.
It was formerly kept by John Cham
berlain, and within Us wall many a
goodly fortune has been lost and ifon.
It stands, a large, eleeant, square man
sion, with many shaoy piaxsas, In Che
centre of a broad green lawn. The
sroundb on either side are handsomely
laid out and ornamented with flower*
and statuary. In the centre of the
lawn Is a large fountain, surmounted by
beds of magnificent flowers and exotics,
and other beautiful plants, and the
whole place looks more like the oounbry
villa of some wealthy gentleman than
onesf
The Mm( Haiti
in all the long Ltot of Amerioansam
mer resorta. When Chamberlain kept
it the place was. noted for its sumptu
ous midnight banquet*, but now, since
it baa come into the pn—wwlon of Phil
Day, a noted Philadelphia gambler,
these feasts have been dJaoontinued.
Here It was that a well-known Illinois
Senator Iqst the handsome sum of $8,000
in one night, and the place nvmbcis
among Its victims many of America's
great men. It would astound the aver
age person to know that many who
bave earned a name and reputation In
the world of science or of letters have
here offered up a golden sacrifice to the
"fickle goddess." The Pennsylvania
club houae is furnished in a most sump*
tuous style from attic to bnse'ment, and
also glories in a host of retaluers.
At the other end of Ocean avenue, in
the rear of l<eland'» hotel, anotlior
44club bouse" has thin year been erected.
It Is a handsome structure, built after
the Queen Anne style of architecture,
three stork* high, with elegant broad
piazzas on the north and east sides.
This piazza Is, to a height of four feet,
covered with an open lattice-work, while
the exposed space between the lattice
and the eaves is filled with banging
baskets of luxuriant vinos and bloom
ing flowers, ho that parties pawing on
the street can cutch the faintest glimp
ses of the long, open corridor, while
the internal workings of the machine
are completely screened from the
Vulgar Umf«rtb« Ontelde WwM.
The lawn is rather narrow, as the
house Is shout fifteen yards from the
Htreet. The Interior i* furnished In
even more exquisite style than the
Pennsylvania (Hub. Entering the
house from the front piazza, you find
the long, broad corridor handsomely
papered, and carpeted with the richest
of tapestry. In the centre hangs an
enormous chandelier, which lights up
tbe dimmest corners.
Oti each side are handsomely fur
nished apartments, provided with ele
gant gaming tables. In the rear, on the
easterly side, is tbe large "general as
sembly room," where giddy men of the
world unsuccessfully "buck against the
house." Hero are the faro table, tbe
roulette lay-out, the black and white
table, and all tbe paraphernalia of a
first class gambling salon. Up-atalrs
are ten luxuriously furnished poker
rooms, which arc let out to private par
ties at the rate of $10 a night, and ofton
they are occupied until tbe gray llgbt of
dawn makes ouli the light of the gaaJets.
Colored retainers are In waiting in all
the apartments, and no pains are spared
to make these surroundings as pleasant
as possible. The most Interested por
tion of the place Is tbe lanre aaewtiy
room on the first floor. The ceilings
and walls nre of elcgautly polished i.ard
woods, while the floor Is covered with a
carpet M iuiprlantly soft that it never
echoes a footwtep. Tbe window* are
decorated with lambrequins and laoe
curtains, while tbe surrounding walk
are bung with rich sportlug pictures.
In this room the tables are
AI ways Crewtfetf With Msjsrs.
Not a sound isdieanl save the rattle of
chil» and tbe monotonous calls of the
dealers. Tbe players converse in low
tones and not a sound ever reaches tbe
outside world. At these tables the
spectacled man of letun site near to
the beardless stripling, while tbe stakl
man of business, pockets his losses
wlthoat a murmur of discontent. And
there they sit tbe livelong night so ab
sorbed in their risks m f not notice the
arrival of a casual late comer.
Not until daybreok do they usually
swske to tbelf surroundings; when the
lights are turned oat and tbe •eery
gamesters turn WNh aching beads and
deu'eied pockets to their eovehee to
tsoo the gentle Morpheus and bury
trtefr losaess in the waters of Lsihe.
Almost any morning when the gray
dawn Is breaking a line of coacbee Can
be seen drawn up in front of the Ocean
club bouse, aa it is called. Chsriee B»
