Wearied by the work which h had done

through tiie south, and started it'icrcupon

from I'utlalo he went by beat around the
lakes to the' then small town ol (iliica'o. Hy
easy stages he crossed the statu of Illinois
to the .Mississippi, striking thf: river at
Davenport. A river steamer carried him to
St. Louis, where he visited for'a lew days,
and then left for New Orleans. !
Wnile passing down the Mississippi he
was astonished but yet interested in the
gambling that prevailed' on the boat, as in
those days it was wont to do, and his atten
tion was csirecially drawn to one of those
manipulating the cards a middle-aged man
of a winsome appearance whose bets were
heavy, who was invariably a loser, but, ap
parently, not in the least discouraged by his
ill luck. , ' - H-

With these wur:ls he left the saloon, to
which he soon returned accompanied by a
female whose figure was inarvelously beau
tiful and who was huavily veiled. '

For a moment the silence of death pre

English growers now furnish a bettet

consumers of the best class quite in

adds that in four days preceding Christ

that English growers are now turning
the tables on foreigners by sending
