A cbeeik association in Hetkimer
county, New York, has fined a farmer
$30 for watering bis milk. The associa
tion insists that it is proper to water
elhing but stocks and whiskey.
Two English noblemen, both married,
kare horsewhipped and thrashed each
other on account of Mrs. Langtry. The
incident ought to be worth $20,000 as an
advertisement to the bone of contention
when she reopens her dramatic season.
Besides, it throws a significant sidelight
on the recent revelations of aristocratic
profligacy ic London .
Either De Witt Tallage or A. A
Hopkins will be the prohibition candidate
for governor of New York, and we fear
one of the prohibition ideas is to weaken
the republican ticket. It must be remem
bered, however, that there are only two
genuine temperance partice the prohi
bition and the democratic though their
ideas of reform differ very widely; and
peradventure the latter will be hurt to a
considerable extent, too.
Mr. Roach's assignment prompts the
Chicago Inter fata to remark that the
democratic administration "has destroyed
American shipping in four months.
"That is equivalent, " says the Buffalo
Courier, "to saying that in its so called
efforts to build up American sbippiDg
the republican party in two decades sue
ceeded in creating and fostering but ow
ehip building establishment." A good
Shot almost good enough to destroy tte
entire naw which the srood Mr. Roach
has kindly furnished us.

Stockman's Game is Whrh Two
Steers Coxstitute as Arte.
Kansas City Cor. New York World.
It is no trouble at all for a man who
loves a good, stiff game of poker to find
it in Kansas City. There is a state law
here which makes the keeping of a gam
bling bouse a felony, but it is not eu
forced against poker "club rooms." There
is no faro east of the Kansas state line
The stnctlv professional gambling
amounts to almcst nothing, but there art
some stockmen s carets that would make
cold chills run up the back of the average
business man. I Lave seen $,'5,0OU
change ownership in a little friendly came I
on hands wbicb went back to the pack
without ever being seen. Unsuspecting
people never dream of the extent of the
poker mania. I believe if the world would
look it up it would tnd that if the poker
clearings were included in the weekly
statements tbey would go long way to
ward offsetting the loss of 30 or 4U per
cent, that the metropolis is suffering. At
all events it would be so if poker playing
is as popular in New York as it is in Kan
sas City.
THK ETIrETTE OF THE TOKER TABLE.
Woe unto the man who jumps the
game! Thrice disgraced is he who jumps
the game when he is winner! Five rich
stockmen hired a room in the St. James
hotel on a Friday nicht a week ago. They
had a poker lay out, and the blue chips
were worth $23, the red f 10 and the
white $5. It was $10 ante and no limit.
The night flew away apace and morning
dawned on the absorbed players. Some
were poorer and some richer by thous
ands. Breakfast and dinner and then
supper were brought up, but the play
went on. Late Saturday night one of the
participants signified bis intention to co
home to his wife aDd babies, but he was
kept by the promises of his friends that
tbey did not mean to play much longer.
Another daybreak soon peeped in upon
the players, and still the click of the chips
never ceased. i.reakiast, dinner and sup
per were again served. The play was
higher and more reckless. Jack pots that
would each buy a ranch were raked in by
first one player and then another. At
breakfast time Monday morning the man
who wanted to go home Saturday night
swore that he would wuit no longer. As
he plunged through the doorway he was
followed by this seating remark:
"Damn a man who would jump a
game."
A year ago I met a young man who had
come out west to grow up with the coun
try. He was a graduate of Harvard, and
had pleasant manners, but evidently left
a comfortable eastern home with exag
gerated notions of the west. In three
weeks after his arrival he was strapped,
and had all his best duds in pawn. I was
somewhat, interested in his fate at the
time, but did not see him again until a
few days ago. He hail the ear maik.n of
prosperity about him and I was told luter
that he hud graduated trom a coal deal
er's office as a crack poker player, and he
had learned it ail within a lew months.
Some wonderful stories were told of this
young fellow's nerve, and it was said that
he had a good fat bank account and sat
regularly in a stockmen's game.
The tide of his fortune was turned by
his grit in playing two deuces in a big
game. ' He hail been drifting into gam
bling for some time, and knew a great
deal about a deck of cards Three of the
players had laid down their hands after
the draw, leaving only two contestants.
The hero of the story had been winning,
and bet treely on his hand. His opponent
kept seeing him and raisinc him, and fin
ally, after the pot bad grown big enough
to be worth fighting for, raised him $3,s
600. The clerk in the coal office put on
his thinking cap. He had two deuces un
supported, and he looked at them, and
then coolly eyed bis antagonist. This
lasted two or three minutes. Not a facial
muscle moved.
"I call you," he said at last, throwing
his two deuces down upon the table.
They won the pot.
The other man's hand was not as good
as ace high.
I am told that this young Harvard grad
uate is one of the best poker players here
abouts. He calls a bluff instinctively.
Bis luck is charmed, and the oldest and
most reckless players tremble when they
go against him.
The great art in poker is to know when
to call and when not to call. With 100
n the pot and f 5 Wet by his antagonist I
once saw the best gambler in Missouri lay
down three of a kind.
"Whv did you not call him? It would
only have cost you 3." Eaid I.
' tie had a better band than 1 had, and
I would have been iust $5 out."
Men aie born gamblers, and it is this
intuition to call at the right time that
makes them successful. In a big came at
a hotel here not long a0. in which five or
six friends took part, there was an excit
ing illustration of this delirious sort oi
doubt. Every player bad made good his
ante, and some of them had put in a few
hundred dollars additional before drop
ping out. At ; length $10,000 lay on the
table, with two players fighting for it. I
stood behind one of them. He had three
queens, having drawn to them at the
start. His opponent had drawn three
cards. The latter, at this juncture, coolly
announced a raise of 10,IKK).
The man with three queens was fairly
staggered. His antagonist might be blufi
ia. He might have drawn to an ace and
kin? and caught nothing, or he might
have caught another king and two more
aces, or he might have drawn to a pair
and caitrht a full hand. Was he bluffing?
That was the question. After thinking
the matter over, he did not consider his
queens worth that amount of money, so
both hands went to the deck, and the man
on the other side of the table raked in the
stakes.
I found cut afterward that all this
money was won on tne iouowing nana:
Ace, ;ack, ten and two sixes. Tae three
queens would have won by a large ma
jority.
It is one of the delients ot tne stock
man, whose fortune has grown upon him
like a Jacks beansta.k, to uo absurdly
extravagant things. These nabobs will
actually shake dice for a nice couse and
lot. first dasii out of the box. Sea'skin
overcoats are worn over hand me down
suits, and immense diamonds shine from
flannel shirt fronts. A rich ranch owner
would ask no better fun than to throw
silver dollars into a crowd of street gam
ins.
There was one poker game here in
which every chip red. white and blue
represented a steer. When a man anted,
what be threw to the center of tae tatj.e
represented a steer, and it took acother
steer to make it good. This was a gilt
eJgcd game, and nobody who could not
count his cattle on a thousand Liils dared
take any part in it. It would make a poor
man dizzy to think of the money that is
won and lost in this str game. It is evi
dent that a stockman's game is no place
for a poor man, any way.
A VOICE FROM THE SOUTH
From the Hays County Sews .
In his speech at Mitchell's Grove, on
Emancipation day, Lewis While, a col
ored orator from Dupre, said: "We have
tried the republican party for twenty
years. We have tried the loyal league and
carpet bag rule, and what Lave they pro
fited us They have made us slaves to
political intriguery, and all that is left us
is broken promises and disappointed and
blasted hopes. Ttey told us that the elec
tion of Cleveland would mean a return to
slavery of the colored race. Cleveland
was elected, and the country was never
mire prosperous than it is to day. If
democratic government means slavery,
then, I, for one, am glad to welcome such
slavery.''
THE VOICE OF THE PttlPLE.
The people, as a whole, seldom muke

praise which comes from '.Lose who have
used Hoods Sarsaparilla, fully justifies
the claims of the propiittors of this great
medicine. Indeed, these very claims are
based entirely on hat the people say
Hood's Sarsaparilla has done for them.

While in New York he visited, in company
with Uayor Grace and the park commis

Upon hit arrival tere be immediately held
a consultation with his mother and the other
members of the family. He detailed at
length what he bad seen and heard during
bu trip to ew 1 ork, and said that he had
finally concluded that Riverside park was
the more desirable place.
After a short discussion of the merits cf
the place named, all agreed that the col
Gael's selection was a good one, and it was
decided to at once notify the city author:-
ti of the family's acceptance of the site in
Riverside park selected by CoL Fred. The

THE LYING-IN-STATE.
While the board of aldermen were in
session Tuesday, Mayor Grace, Police
Commissioner Yoorhees, .jGen. Perry
(representing Gen. Hancock) and Super
intendent McAvoy (of tbe department
of poblic work.-), held a consultation
as to the most advantageous place in the
city hail to have Gen. Grant's body lie in
state. CoL Fred Grant, before leaving for
Mt. McGregor Mau jay, said that he would
leave it entirely to the uiscrelion of Mayor
Grace and the other authorities. During the
consultation between tie mayor and other
officials mentioned, the preposition was
abandoned of, exhibiting the body of the
dead general in the governors room, and it
was finally decided, in order to save time
and prevent any possible acci
dent, to have a the' casket placed
in the rotunda, immediately at the
foot of the main stair case. The pejple
will be admitted at the east and westnds
of tbe main entrance of the hall, thns al
lowing two lines to paaB around the casket
at the same time. At night the ground
floor of the city hall will be lighted with
electricity.
Complete police preparations have been
made, and every precaution will be taken to
prevent confusion and facilitate tbe passage
of the lines of citizens through the rotunla
to view the dead soldier.
AN CNW1ELDLY PROCESSION aPPEEHEXI.KS.
The danger now is that tbepr' c?ssion which
will accouijiany tha romainsof G-n. Grant to
the grave will be too uawieiily for man
agement. Clfers from military ani civicor
ganhatioas and individual continue to pour
into Gen. Hancock's heac!qjarte:-s. H will
prolably be nocssary to confine the many
bodies, who desire to participate in the cer
emonies to representatives instead of full
bodies. If the Grand Army of
the Republic should muster the
strength indicated, it would consume
six hours marching by a given point
The militia display wilt also eonsisty of
many thousand men.
Gen. Hancock U determined that the
military character of the procession shall
not be destroyed, and be Will therefore be
forced to decline manv of tbe offers re
ceived from civic bodies. In reply to a
letter received Monday from Mayor George
W. McLean, tendering tue services of
Old Guard tor the occa-ion, Gctl Hancock
wrote, accepting tbe .ffr, and saying that
tbe United Etete troops, sailors, and mav
rines will occ. py the right of line; tbe
:ia and all organizations fully nnitorrii-4
rmed and equipped will come next, while
the 'irand Army posts will follow all pre
ceding the bearue.
CROWDS TO VIEW THE CASKET
There was such a crowd at Undertaker
Merrill's store Monday to see Gen. GrantV
scfTiii, that at one time a blockade occurred
and several persons were somewhat hurt in
tbe crush. Some women fainted, and the
rtore finally had to be cleared by the police.
It is thought that 30,000 persons viewed tbe
coCin during the day and evening.

houses, ani it is probable that there will be
a full attendance.
In Accordance with Gen. Grant's Wish.
Washington- City, July 2i5. Adit Gen.
Drum said Tuesday that he bad no doubt
the selection of Central park as tbe burying
place for Gen. Grant was in deference to
the general's own expressed wish. "When
I reached Mt McGregor," he added, "I
found that colonel and Mrs. Grant had
finally determined upon Central park, al
though CoL Grant intimated that he would
have preferred the Soldiers' Home park in
this city. I was fully impressed with tbe
idea ttat it was a case in which individ ual
preference had been sacrificed to the gen
eral's wi-h."
