The gamblers, according to the" woeful tales of a "squealer," have splendidly equipped quarters on Main street and are do ing a land office business. The alleged operation of the gamb lers were given considerable notice Saturday when a .victim instituted claim and delivery proceedings in the Superior court and the sheriff armed with papers rescued a $610 diamond ring. - . .. . The story runs that two visitors came from Jacksonville, jna. une was a man of considerable means and carried a little $610 diamond ring on his finger. His younger friend admir ed the jewel and borrowed it to flash ;iround with for a few days. He wa3 spotted by one who made it his bus iness to acquaint such sport3 with his friends and it was not long before they became chummy , and other friends v. ere - introduced boon the young Jacksonville got' in big company. He won $50 and proceeded to participate in a $2,000 game and as a consequence lost the choibe jewel and some cash. That sad plight didn't suit the own er of the precious ring so when tho young sport opened up with his talo of woe there was consternation in ga mbling circles. In - the presence of the original owner of the ring ana tne one who lost it. for him the new hold er of the diamond is said to have sur rendered it to the sheriff, who turned it met to the owner, but unless the case is, hushed'.up some further inter esting developments are expected to come out in court-' Out in the open--whether, mountain or shore you'll de rive a wonderful degree of com fort from a good pair of amber glasses.
