Herrmann and the Cheat.
A characteristic story is told of Horr
maun. Tho incident took place at a
well known Loudou club, where ocarte
was one of the favorite ganis iudulged
iu for stakes by no means insignificant.
It was observed that on theje cccaaicns
a certain member almost invariably rose
considerable winner. At length so
marked became tho good fortune of this
member that another detormined to
probe the matter to the bottom. One
evening, accordingly, at his own rooms,
he introduced Herrmann under a false
name to a select party of the members,
among whom figured the suspected one.
At tbe close of the night's amusement,
when the guests had departed, tho host
turned to tho conjurer and demanded
bis opinion. "Nota doubt of it," re
plied Herrmann, "our frioud cheats.
but exactly how I can t say yet. uive
me another chance." A seooud meeting
was subsequently arranged, and play
began. Suddenly Herrmann, looking
straight at the supposed culprit, ex
claimed, "Where did you get that
king?" "Wber?" replied the other.
'Out of the pack, of course," "Impos
sible, my dear sir," retorted Herrmann,
for I happen to have all the four kings
here," and thereupon he calmly drew
them front bis sleeve and laid them on
the table. St. James Gazette.

casos one was that of a native, who wal
detected after stealing several sheop,
but as he bad dono so to suddIt his fam

food, whon he had broken his ana, pro
visions were furnished to thorn and
work was found for him when able to
do it, and meanwhile ho was placed un
der medical care, but the stigma attach
ed to his crime was considered sufficient
Tho other theft was by a Oorman,
who stole 17 sheep.
But as ho was in comfortable circum
stances and the robbery was malicious
the seutenco passed upon him was that
ho should sell all his property, restore
the value of what he hud stolen and
then leave tho country or l o executed,
and he left at once. But though crina

Bodloe was in a room at the Press club
