A Flatboatman with Keen Eye Takes
the Conceit Out of a Professional A
Game of "Old Sledge" Which Amused
the Sports of New Orleans.
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,

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

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

" BUOEO FOR THE CASH.
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

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,

o'clock, w hen be called for a drink, be had

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,

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

turn, plate, linen, a French maid, the com

Tbe Death Watcta Beetle.
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.

tbe state of Vera Cruz, which, when he at
tacks ynu, roils itself up like a hoop, and
wheels along with great speed, and, wnen
close to you, uncoils tod begins lo whip you
soundly about the logs with its strong and
vicious little tail. Ho does not bite, but only
lashos his enemy. Uut there is another
snake, called tho "coraiito," which is slender
and sinai: nnd ml, and which inflicts a bail
and dauger.;u.H lute. A friend of mine stay-1
ing on a plantation, found two coiled up in a
high top shoe one morning, iu tae hot :
country cauuous people examine the beds at
night to see that uo snake or scorpion is there,
and, taking this prudent precaution, they
sleep soundly enough, for it is often chilly at
night in tho hot country. Cor. lioston Her

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.
