V TRICKS AT CARDS. Professional Sharpers and Their Methods of Cheating. Ltciou Saturdav K.'bw. People interested in tricks at cards by which we do not mean "amusing physical experiments' as we have seen the French phrase for conjuring! tricks translated, but tricks in the, worse sense of the word ma advantage turn to "Prof. Hon translation, as he modestly calls T-Inhprf.-T-fmulin's "Lps Trmripripa iIpq firon " wiiir.li Woc tnilililri nnf vorr long ago under the title of "card- harping exposed." Houdin's book was first published in 1861, and two years later an English translation, since out of print, was broui iffht out. ProtWHoftman has done more than -ffattlif nl translation nf R.ihprf Houdin: he has brousrht down the work to the present date by means of consulting various subsequent works. The preface in which Prof. Hoffman sets forth these facts is not, perhaps, the least valuable part of his own share in the work. He says in this that some of the feats described in the pages of the volumu might well seem incredible to those who had had no personal experience in the matter. He himself, however, has sometimes, when these feats have been deliber ately performed in his presence, been tempted to ask "whether they have really been executed at all, or wheth er the professor has not this time play ed fair, and won by some happy acci dent. If, he goes on pertinently to ask, this is the effect produced upon a person familiar with every general form of card conjuring, and prepared for the particular manner in which the precise trick is to be executed, what chance has the average card-player of detecting unfair play at the hands of a practiced card-sharper ? This is a question which bears upon the case with which the average man can be duped by any one who has a moder ate share of intelligence, and who is prepared to take a moderate amount of tiouble; and the fact stated by Prof. Hoffman more than sufficiently explains the success ot" the clrmsv enough tricks which are constantly employed against their dupes by the professors of various forms of "mysticism." The editor observes, justly enough, that, so far as card-playing is concerned, the true moral of Houdin's work should be found in some such expression as ''Never play at any game whatever lor stakes large enough to tempt am one to unfair play." On the face of it, this may strike the general reader as a somewhat cyncial view to express, or be may be inclined to describe it at lest in Pepys' words as a "devilish .aying, but true;" but it may be telerably well supported by remem brance of the hardly doubted fact in connection with ene of the very few extinct public tables, that the heav iest losses, the only disputes as to fair or unfair play, and the most horrible cases of ruin are to be found, not round the public table, but at the private tables which are to be discov ered by those who seek them not far ctf. Lever's Jew in Davenport Dunn was right when he said that gambling was one of the things which men would do as long as the world went on, and it may be worth while to point still more strongly the force of what Prof. Hoffman advances. "Wherever," he says, "the stakes are of such an amount as to constitute substantial gain or loss to any of the players, the risk nf miftnr nla v Kptrinc r The most exclusive ef clubs, the most watchful ot committees, will never succeed in keeping out the Grecian element so long as the temp tation exists in the form of high stakes. Granted that the great majority among the classes where high play prevails would piay as honorably for thousands as for sixpences. So much the better for the Greek. The less fear of his market being spoiled by competition." This, as a general rule of course there may be excep tions is hardly contestable ; and no doubt many of our readers will remem ber cases within their own personal experience which will confirm the professor's" conclusion. Whether he, on his own part, is not too sanguine :n thinking that retribution, sooner or later, always overtakes the skillful Greek, is perhaps an open question. Indeed, the curious history which Houdin gives of "Raymond," the gambler, is a case in point, although it is true that he is represented as hav ing taken to honest courses at the right moment. It is pleasing to turn to the story which Prof. Hoffman quotes from M. de Gaston's Les Tricheurs, of how Caston discomfited a professional sharper one day at Brussels. He was waiting somewhat impatiently for a friend of his (M. Delannoy, of the Vaudeville theater, Prof. Hoffman calls him, but it should obviously be M. Delannoy) at a cafe when a strang er lounged in and presently proposed 2 game of picquet, 150 up for a cup of M. de Caston writes. OIy opponent offered me my revenge. We then played for our luncheon and a bottle of Bor deaux, which we had consumed in common, amounting only to some five or six francs." It was accident then rather than the amount of the stake which led 31 de Caston to watch his opponent and discover that he was playing unfairly. This was how he did "it: "In shuffling he left the so that lift rmofir prv ivpII linvp snnrpil i mp thp rr-nnliU nf nftino- ot 11 Tlimi he proceeded to deal;" and L de ; Caston tabulates carefully the manner i of his dealing, the result of which was ; that he dealt twelve cards to Caston and only eleven to himself. "He then separated the nine cards remaining into two portions, the first of five i .i t' t n i . .i ; cards, the second' of four : but this latter gave him a quatorze of aces."i This compelled his adversary's admira tiou, but it seemed to him to be going a little too far ; so, in taking up his own cards he managed to give himself the four aces. When the stranger took up his hand he was so astonished that he lost his mind and actually ex claimed: ''What is the meaning of this ? You have robbed me, sir. Where are my aces?1 "In my own hand, sir. My name is Alfred de Caston, and I give my first magical performance to-morrow at the Salle Philharmnique., My friend seized his hat and tied. I am bound, as a his hat and tied. I am bound, as a faithful chronicler, to add that in the hurry of his flight he (juite forgot to I pay for his refreshment." 1 The Philosopher and the Flea. This is the tale of the philosopher and the flea : First The former, haying been bitten by the latter, seized and was about to dispatch his foe, when he re- fleeted that the little insect had onJy ! acted from instincts and was not toj be blamed. Accordingly he deposited the flea on the back of a passing dog. 2. This dog was the poodle of a j ladv, and she was very fond of the 1 prettv animal. On his return to the j house his mistress took him upon her j lap to cares3 him, and the flea em- braced hU opportunity to change his l inhabit. j 3. The flea having in the course of the night engaged in active business; operations, awakened the lady. Her . hiKhnnd was sleenino- neacefiillv be-' sidft her. and m the silence ot her : " . . A . J. i. . chamber she heard him iu his dreams J whisper with an accent of ineffable tenderness a name. The name was that of her most intimate female ! friend. j 4. As soon as it was day, the out-1 raged wife hurried to the house of her rivfll mid told thft rivnl's husband of the big, big d ing discovery she had made. He, being a man of decision, at once called out the destroyer of his household's peace, and ran him through. 5. The widow, when her husband was taken home to her upon the me dium of a shutter, was so terribly smitten with remorse that she precipi tated herself from the fourth story window. 6. The other lady convinced her husband that he had wronged her by entertaining any suspicions as to her fidelity, and, becoming reconciled with him, seized an early opportunity of poisoning him. 7. Inasmuch as the jurors of that country had never heard of "extenuat ing circumstances," and the chief magistrate thought that he could put j a murderer to better uses than not guillioting him, the guilty woman was duly decapitated, and the sole sur yivors of the tragedy were the phil osopher and the flea.

One summer, 20 years ago, when the Appletons were living in Lynn, Mass., Longfellow's son Charles, who was Tery fond of sailing a boat, and who has since become a famous yachtman, came in his boat one day to make a call. The surf was high and the boat was capsized, and he was thrown into the water. He was wet through, of course, and was compelled to make an entire change of clothing. Capt. Nathan Appleton, in place of Shoes, loaned him a pair of slippers, which he wore home. Mr. Longfellow, the poet, returned the slippers a few days afterward, done up in a neat package, with this little stanza : Slippers that perhaps another, Sailing o'er the Bay of Lynn, A forlorn or shipwrecked nephew Seeing may purloin again. $500 Reward.

After a time the' went to the bar, where Oscar ordered "some milk, fresh from nature's odorous labratorv" while the others took a little lemon in theirs. Then Fry and the captain and another gentleman sat down to j play "dollar ante. I "What eez dollar ante ?" Said Oscar, i drearily in a mezzo soprano sigh. 'nrie.V exl,I?"fd , . .

Every body went in. The captain two cards. Fry took one and Oscar one. "I will contribute a live spot," said the captain, locating a So piece iu the center of the green. j nT4. n f "il win cusl juu mure, re- marked Mr. Fry, disseminating a ten "Beshrew me, but I am oppressed Wltn doubt," murmured Oscar.

"Too-too," the poet murmured, as he almost weepingly laid down four duces. And when the captain had flung his cards out of the window and Fry was making the air blue with interjections, Oscar winked his eye audibly and re marked m Ins natural frame of mind .
