A dapper looking young man dropped
in at a Dearborn street resort ono day
not long ago and inquired for tho pro
prietor. When informed by thowhito
aproned young man who caters to tho
thirst of tho customers in tho absenco of
tho proprietor that tho latter was not in,
tho dapper young man unwrapped
a packago which ho carried and pro
duced a new dico box containing tho
regulation five dice. Ho stated that ho
represented a certain patent medicine,
tho proprietors of which thought of giv
ing out tlicso dico boxes as an advertise
ment, and, if ho succeeded in placing
enough of them to mako it an object, ho
would como around later and stencil an
advertisement on tho boxes. He begged
permission to lcavo that ono for tho pro
prietor, with his compliments, ana. as
tho dico boxes in uso were somewhat'
shabby, tho whlto aproned man gladly
accepted tho new ono and thanked the
dapper youth. When tho proprietor
turned up a littlo later ho was pleased
with tho gift and throw away tho old
boxes. t '
On tho following afternoon a party of
1 well dressed man entered tho place,
called for tho dico box, and proceeded to
nhako for tho drinks. After two or thrco
rounds tho men began to shako for "a
quarter a corner" and then $1. Tho pro
prietor, who was behind tho bar, noticed
that tho big man who proposed tho shak
ing for money was the heaviest winner,
and, in tho coarso of tho afternoon, ono
of tho proprietor's friends, who had gono
into tho gome, lost 00, tho bulk of which
went to tho big man. Thcro was some
thing peculiar in tho way In which ho
handled tho box, and, after ho left, tho
proprietor examined it carof ully.
Whilo ho was thus engaged an old
friend of his, who liad f oryears traveled
with a circus, como in. Ho knows all of
tho tricks witli dice, and, when asked if
thero was anvthintr wrone with thia nar-
thero was anything wrong with thia
' tioular outfit, ho picked it up, looked at
it, and then 6aid: "Yes, it's what is
called a California smooth box, and in
practiced hands ft is a suro thins. You
notice that the insido of tho box is as
smooth as gloss and that the dico oro per
fect cubes, with squaro corners. Tho
man who understands it can shako two
pair 'on tho square,' and when ho picks
up the odd die he can slide it into tho box
with tho desired spots on tho upper face,
shako it up and down carefully, and tho
same spots will slide out and fill the hand
liko this," and tho circus man demon
strated the idea. Tho proprietor readily
saw that tho box liau been "planted"
thoro by the big fellow's confederate, tho
alleged patent medicine man, and ho now
retains It as n curiosity, but allows no
ono to Bhako with it.
Sorao months ago this proprietor was
deceived in another way. It was just
after Mayor Rocho's edict against gam
bling had gono forth and tho sports had
begun to realize that wido open gambling
was dono for for tho time being, and
wero beginning to seek fresh fields .and
pastures now if they could muster tho
prico of a railroad ticket. Ono day a
certain well known sport dropped in at
this same placo and quietly informed tho
proprietor that ho was hungry, had no
money to buy a meal, and his 6olo assets
consisted of thrco packs of cards, which
ho liad raved from tho clutches of tho
polico at tho last "pull.'' Ho offered to
sacrifice tliem for twenty-fivo cents per
pack, and, as the proprietor's customers
often indulged in a littlo gamo in tho
back loom, and ho was out of cards just
then, ho bought them, and tho sport
withdrew with seventy-five cents.
About two or thrco days later in camo
a party of young fellows, who had a few
dunks and then asked the privilego of
indulging in n small game Thoywero
furnished with ono of tho thrco packs of
cards and went into tho room. When
tho proprietor went into tho room a fow
minutes later to trtko tho party's order ho
noticed that tho greater part of tho chips
and cards liad accumulated in front of a
snort whom ho know to bo a friend of
tho follow who sold him tho cards, and
when ho went out ho examined tho backs
of tho other two packs, and found them
marked ingeniously. Ho invented an
excuso to break up tho game, and then
lie burned tho cards. Just now ho is
wondering if ft3 0yo teeth aro through
