In 1851. when New Orleans was reached by flaiboats, tbe cargo of apples, hay, com or meats was disposed of as fast as purchasers could be found, after which the crews looked up the local sights, particularly the "tiger." Of all the curiosities then to be found there they preferred, beyond all dispute, the tiger. 1 ins popular quadruped was to be seen no where in more rigor and beauty of coat than in the gilded rooms of the Gonzalo Brothers. In their saloon he was invariably lavishly habitt'd in a short jacket of green, closely fitting his rotund body. Down the front was a row of very large buttons made from Mexi can dollars, the front faces of which were so polished that they reflected light as mirrors. Shortly after the noonday lunch had been served in the front saloon on a cool Sunday a tall, gaunt flatboatman sauntered in to ward the tables, where little groups were watching with intense anxiety the turning up of the cards by one of the dealers. Tbe game was Mexico's favorite monte, and large sums were scattered about tbe table. The newcomer was at once recognized by many or those present, wuo saluted bun with, "How are you. Bowers f BOWERS PROPOSES A GAME. Bowers nodded pleasantlv to the right and left and took a seat at one of the tables where Gonzalo was presiding. The visitor was a man wbo would be conspicuous in any crowd. A quick eye, long, somewhat hooked nose, a t'ac bronzed by exposure, and a thin, attenu ated, black mustache gave him the appear ance of either a frontiersman or a veteran circu3 manager. hie watched the game closely for some time, when his eye fell upon the Iwi'ge silver buttons on Gonzalo's coat These turned to boid bis gaze, for, without removing his scrutiny, he moved his cbair ! directly opposite the little Mexican. In a1 tew minutes a smile overspread his features, I and he got up and went to the bar for a drink. Wiping his mustache on a big yellow ban- ! danna handkerchief, he stepped behind the 1 table ami whispered something in the Mexi can's ear. The little proprietor bowed gra ciously, saying loud enough for those around to hear: "Si, senor, I play whatever game yon like." They withdrew to a small ante room in the rear, which was lighted by a large "lass sky tight. Tbe smile of Bowers did not leave hw face. It seemed to giow even more radiantly when they sat down fac ing each other, and when he took from his pocket a lar'e buckskin pnrse filled with goid it widened almost into a laugh. Ef you're no t inject ions, pardner," said Bowers, with somewhat of a drawl in bis enunciation, "nt-'ll mke it old sledge." At that time "old sledge," known later as "seven up." was a favorite American game, I and its popularity bed penetrated even the 1 wild woods of the extreme west. "Eet j maker not dc slight difftrans for me what ai gamer ect is," repled the dapper Gonzalo, as ! he took a new pack of cards from the hands J of a servant. The game commenced, and at first Bowers J iosL This, however, did not disturb his; equanimity in the least. He chewed at the end of his cig-ir, as was bis habit, ran bis hand through ins long, black hair, played i with a large w?al ring that adorned his left little finger, and still smiled. A few idlers drilled back to where they were playing, but the two antagonists were so quiet that they lost interest and went back to more enliven ing gam--. Bowers, after some time, began to wit; ;:i first every second game, then two bur ff every three. The Mexican sent for We love but once. The greet gold orb of light From dawn to eventide uoth cast his ray ; But the full splendor of his perfect might J reached but once throughout Lhe livelong day. We love but once. A score of times, perchance, We may be moved in fancy's fleeting faahjoo May treasure tip a word, a tone, a glance. But only once we feel the soul's great passion. We love but once.

Ths fiatboatman did not move one inch in his chair, lie st-emed as rigid as if carved from stone. Facing his opionent, he kept his eye tixed on the handme green coat of the proprietor and the silver buttons. They appeared to have some fascination for the rough nverman. Gonzalo sat listlessly in his scat, evidencing but Little interest in the game. H is cards he held low, as his hands rested on the table At 'A o'clock in the afternoon Bowers was tl.MJO ahead, and the Mexican had awakened to a decided interest in tbe game. He pro-: posed to increase tho bets to tlOO on each game, which offer was promptly accepted. Tbe other tables had become deserted now, and there w as a crowd gathered around tbe two players. Side bets were offered on each game by spectators and the .excitement was growing intense. Bowers paid no heed to those around him. He had come, he said, "to get all the honey out of this gum tree, and he was a-goin1 to do it." At half -past 3 he had won $2,600, and at 4 o'clock, w hen be called for a drink, be had 44,000 in goid ahead. Gonzalo was somewhat pale, but there was not a tremor in his hand. He explained that he had nearly reached the limit of his pile, but would play two more hni for $500 each, and Bowers won both. The Mexican rose from the table and shook hands with his antagonist, and both adjourned to take a glass of wine together. Bowers received tbe admiring glances of tbe crowd as he strolled leisurely out of the saloon, still chewing the end of his cigar. The game was the talk of the town for a number of days, and Goncalo was teased considerably abont it by his com rades. All tuis seemed as nothing, howevar, when he received a note, written in a bold, scraggy hand, saying: "Pardner, et't too good to keep, so I'll tell et to yoa When yoo play with a Gringo take off that ere green coat and silver buttons. X seed every hand yoa held rite in one of those buttons, like lookiu? inter a looking glass. Much bliged for the cash, all the same. Yours till Ll3ih, Bowers.' Cincinnati Enquirer. The Romance of Lady Ellen borough's Life Told by Mrs. Wallace. Mrs. Lew Wallace in her famous book, 'The Repose in Egypt," now in press, gives an exceedingly flowery account of Lady Elleuborough, the eccentric wife of an Eng lish nobleman, who, emulating the example of Lady Hester Stanhope and Lady Mary Wortlov Montague, not to mention a French lady. Mine, da la Tour d'Auvergne, who built bt-rself a temple on the top of Mount Olivet, and lives there now, deserted her country aud went to live iu the far east. Mrs. Wal lace says of her: One day she fled to Italy, and, after years of reckless living, thence to Greece. Tiie house of lords as easily granted a divorce to her husband, and the children remained with him. By the terms of tbe di vorce a large income was allotted her, and she set up the standard of wit and beauty, and to it flocked genius and valor. She married again a nobleman from Greece, from whom she was searated by tho command of King Otho. Determined to rival Chatham's eccentric granddaughter, she sailed away from Greece to see what the gorgeous cast is made of. Her ample income gave means of gratifying a taste exquisite af it was luxurious servants, carriages, furni turn, plate, linen, a French maid, the com panion of her changeful moods, even her lit tle lap dog went with her. There are old citizens of Bevrout who remember the stir anion the idle populace when the great En; lish ladv ianc.'d at the seaport. Her Urn guage gave her the broadest range of ac quaintance, and she had a gemns for friend ships.

As most people know, the death watch is a small beetle which frequents decayed or rot ten wood, and is of lonely and retiring habits. It is one of the smallest of the vagipennia, of a dart brown with irregular bright brown spots, the helmet turned up and the upper lip hard and shininz. It produces the tick- sound by pecking at the wood with a small hard proboscis, when in the act of securin;: food. Tbe writer once chased dawn death ualcb through a pile of old papers in a cigar box, and was fortunate enough at last to see it at work. The ticking was quite as loud as tliat of au old fashioned watch, bile the insect was not much larger than the head of a black pin. San Francisco Chromcle, Soldiers Marked for IH-ath. Gen. IV Tmbnanu, in his "Army Reminis cences," says: A small number of men carry the unmistakable mark of the near apnroacii of the death awaiting teem. They are not tuemseh es conscious of it and the number of those who can read these mysterious signs is very limited. Sometimes, in camp, 1 have tried to describe the mark to omr-ers nround I do not remember ever having con vinced anv one of the truth of my theory. One rainy day I was conversing in my tent with Capt. Wilson, assistant adjutant gen eral of my brigade. We were then marching on iredericksburg. Lieut. Col. Lil.ulv, com manding the Fifth Michigan, entered. He came simp'y on some dotail of serv.ee, which was arranged in five minutes. When he bad gone out, ''Now," said I to my incredulous captain, "here's a chance to make a trial of mv theorv C'l. Gil Inly is marked." The captain evidently thought nothing of it. But in tbe first battle Col. Gilluly was killed before Fredericksburg while bravely leading his regiment in a charge. Of all those on whom l have recognized tbe mark and they ere many one only mav have escaped death. If yon ask me in what cons.sts this mark I would find it difficult to reply. This fatal seal is imprinted rather on the general man ner than on the features. It appears some time: in tbe looks, at the lottom of which one divines the trembling oF tho soul soon about to depirt; sometimes in tho smile, in wlnca appear tbe fleeting shadows or a cloud wbich does not belong to tho earth; some times in certain movements as if worn out; in certain languid acts in wbich is betrayed the svstcras of a task which reaches its end Sometimes, oa the contrary, the finger of death is slion-n by a feverish energy without rcasnn, forced laughter, jerky movements.

CURED WHAT IS SCROFULA It is that Impurity in the blood, which, ac cumulating in the glands of the neck, pro duces unsightly lumps or swellings; which causes painful running sores on the arms, legs, or feet; which dcvclopes ulcers In the eyes. ears, or nose, often causing blindness or deafness; which is the origin of pimples, can cerous growths, or the many oilier manifesta tions usually ascribed to "humors;" which, fastening upon the lungs, causes consumption and deat h; Being the most ancient, it is the most general of all diseases or affections, for very few persons are entirely free from It, How Can It Bo By taking Hood's SarsaparllU, which, by the remarkable cures It has accomplished, often when ether medicines have failed, has pre v m itself to be a potent and peculiar medicine for this disease. Some of these cures are really wonderful. If you suffer from scrofula, be sure to try Hood's Sarsaparilla. My daughter Mary was afflicted with scrof ctnus sore neck from the tin she was 22 months old till she hecame six years of age. Lumps formed in her nerk, and one of them after growing to the size of a pigeon's egg. became a running sore for over three years. We gave her Hood's SarsaparUla, when the ramp and all indications of scrofula entirely dis appeared, and now she seems tn be a healthy child. J. S. Cakxu.v. Kauright, N.J. Ji. B.
