Hone to Be- Haunted mJid Thereby Kept Prospective Reenter AwayThe Schem in Detail. The ' New York Sun says that in a Jpart of the metropolis! lying so far from the center of life that it might ' hlmost be palled the country, is a (comfortable house that rents for a jyery; small sum. . Visitors wonder at (the moderate price that the. tenant pays and the neighbors, who are put -: jto greater expense for less comfort, -". . . Jenvy . him. - His landlord, ' who has knore reason to complain than any body else, hates him. Only the tenant, ' reveling in the possession of a desirable house at a moderate rent, feels at peace with hi neighbors and the rest of ; the (world. He does not even object to the reputation of his house. The neighbors say it is haunted. x' Far from contradicting them, he looks 'knowing but courageous when-; jever. his ghosts are referred to. . He lhas even been known to refer to th em seriously. But usually he dis cusses the matter of the spooks only with his landlord, and then he talks to "good effect. After the. tenant had rented ; the house for a term of yearsr at a cer- -"Ntain price, a lease was signed for only one year. But a verbal agree ment was made that it was to con tinue for three years at the same Vice. j&ith that understanding, the ten- nt redecorated the house and made (important changes in the interior ar rangement. He had the house for several years at a small rent and was willing to make these changes. V But at the end of the first year V Ihe landlord denied making any irerbal agreement for a longer term End he demanded double the rent he ad paid. , This, meant a total loss jof his improvements to the tenant and a rent that. he could not afford tfco pay. He had no witness to the HE DEMANDED MORE RENT. verbal agreement and had depended entirely on the landlord's word. He was disoussing the situation .with his wife one night when the sound of a creaking board in the hall startled them. He went to the door, looked out and saw the cook walking through the hall. "Sounded as if - the house were jhaunted," his wife remarked. "It it jwere, nobody would want it." That was an inspiration. The landlord had not played the gime ' fairly with him. He had a right to retaliate in any way possible. So he put on his hat and went to the bor lough police station only a short dis tance away. j ' There he complained of mysterious loises heard in the house-, mentioned b Kicujarthje, creaking. -.? the Telephone 222.

"boards "in the hall as if some person were walking over them and asked what the police could do to help him out. A reporter happened in on his regular rounds, heard the story, went to interview the tenant and the next morning thrilled the readers oi his , paper with an account of the ghostly doings , in this attractive house. ' ' r The landlord stormed and threat ened. But he signed a lease and this time he made it for two years with po advance in rent, i The house is known to this day as flaunted. The neighbor wonder why such a nice-looking family should bo content to live in a spooky house. There has been no more occasion to call in .the police. But whenever the landlord shows' signs of. uneasiness, the tenant only has to write that the noises ' are , again growing very objectionable and that he may have to call in the police. Then the landlord gets angry and holds his peace.; , , . - Jlesro "Won Prise at Yale. i NEW HAVEN, Conn., April 2.

CASTOR I A For Infants and Children, The Kind Ycu Hava Always Bought Bears the Qin&ture of 4Z- He Talkj- of Poker and DesJs Out More Sandy Bend Justice Copyright, 1902, by E. R. Jenkins. NEVER expected to lire to see the day when a poker 5ase would be brought into this court," said Judge Hoke as he opened court and fired his cigar stub into the stove. "A game of poker has always been held as a sacred thing in Sandy Bend. Men who have been swindled in.a-hoss trade, had a claim Jumped or. been held up on the trail have sought jestice, but until today the man who has lost a poker pot while holdin' four jacks in his hand hasn't had a word to say. "Over thar by the stove sits Joe Al len, wko is, sometimes calied Comanche Joe. He is so. called bekase he never saw a Comanehe Injun in his life. Over thar by the winder sits Bill Bowers, who is sometimes called Orphan Bill. Ho is so called bekase: a cloudburst drowned his mother and a prairie lire roasted his dad. -. . "The pair of them happened to meet in the Bald Eagle saloon yesterday, and when Comanche Joe .proposed a two handed game of poker Orphan Bill winked at himself and agreed. They sat down and went at it, and for an hour theip winnin's and losses was about even. They knowed each other to be full of tricks and each was on the watch. "Bimeby, when the deal had gone round five or six times and there was $10 in the pot, Comanche Joe turns his head to spit over his shoulder. Orphan Bill had been watchin' for jest that op portunity, and he does some sleight of hand work. Then he turns his head. Innocentlike, tb look, at a dog, and Joe has his chance. From that time on both of 'em felt that Providence was on his side. They goes to lookln' at each other as guileless as two children and calliri' each other-Mr. Allen and Mr. Bowers. Comanche Joe would . bow - and smile and say: . ' .'."Mr. BoVers, I don't want to seem too conspicuous in this matter, but -I must see your bet and go you $2 better.' "Then Orphan Bill would grin and bow and scrape his feet on the floor and reply: ' ' " " ' "'No offense, I trust, Mr. Allen, but I Bee your raise and go you $5 better.' "That's the; way, the critters toyed with each nether from ten to fifteen min utes, and then when there was" $100 in , THEY SAT DOWN AND WENT AT IT. cash in the pot and they had put up their guns as well Comanche Joe smil in'ly called Bill's hand. He called it smllin'ly bekase he had four jacks in his hand and bekase four jacks Is a good enough hand to rake in all the cattle on the ranches of Wyoming: "Orphan Bill was thar. He was also smilin. He was smilin' bekase he had four aces and bekase four aces is a good enough hand to rake in all the hills and valleys of Wyoming, with her cattle. It was a dramatic moment when the showdown occurred, and it would have been wuth $5 of any man's money to have seen that grin on Co manche Bill's : face gradually fade away Into a look of putty. His mouth opened, his eyes hung out and he sat thar like a man of stone while the Or phan gathered up the plunder and walked off. ' "What would this yere court have done under the sarcumstances? What would the rest of you, includin' them two Chinamen, have done? Why, we'd have got up and sneaked into the hills and kicked ourselves all over an acre of ground and then gone to smilin' ag'in and : kept our mouth shut. We had gone out to shear and been shorn, but" you bet we wouldn't let on a word about it. "Was this the course pursued by the Hon. Joseph Allen? No. Far from it. He goes out and wanders around for a spell ariH then comes to me at my Red Dog saloon and says: - " 'Jedge, J want jestice. I've been robbed out of hand by that critter Orphan Bill.' " 'How was it?' says I. " 'In a game of poker. The blamed robber stole two aces out of the pack to get fours and beat me.' "I had to give him jestice that is, I had to issue a warrant for "Orphan Bill on the charge of swindlin',and it was not until this mornin' that I got at the truth of things. Them four aces was a hocus pocus, but they was a hocus pocus to beat the four jacks. It was dog eat dog, and the Orphan dog got the best hold and hung on the longest. As a court and an individual I must characterize the conduct of Orphan Bill as reprehensible, even though he knew who he was playln' ag'in. The feelin'.in this community is that you may timp a man's claim, run away with lis wife, steal his boss or coax away his dog, but you mnst play a squar- game of poker. We have been as faithful to that feelln' as we have been to the constitooshun of the United States. "Thar ain't no law on the books of this commonwealth under which I kin fine Orphan Bill for gettln' four aces together to give Comanche Joe a sur prise party, but I shrtll make one. He is fined $50, or half his winnin's, and when I take my two guns and set out on the trail of a man fee generally forks over. The fhie ain't for scoopin in the pot, but for.brlngin' the game of poker into disrepute. "As for the Hon. ; Joseph Allen, he wants jestice and he shall have it. It's a case of no cause of action. If s a case of tryin' to hornswaggle another man and gettin' beat at his own game. If s a case of callin' on the majesty of the law to meddle with a private grievance and bring about revenge. It wouldn't be any use to fine the honorable, be kase he's cleaned out and won't have a dollar to his name for days to come, and the verdict of this court is that he gits hisself outside the town of Sandy Bend in one hour by the clock, never to return. If he don't go, he will be help ed to. If he returns, the case will be reopened, and I'll make his heart ache., "In windin' up this case and adjourn In' court this court ain't goin to deliver no address on poker. . You all know what it is. It beats euchre sky high, and it knocks the tar out of seven up or dominoes. It was part and parcel of America when the battle of Bunker Hill was fit, and it has stuck by us and growed up with us until you can't sep arate patriotism and poker no more than you kin separate Uncle Sam and the Goddess of Liberty. But it must be a squar' game. You kin bluff a three jack with a' bobtailed flush, and you kin hold a pair - of tenspots and look mighty wise over a full house hand, but thar must be no hocus pocus or skulduggery. When poker degener ates into chicanery, the bulwarks of liberty are in danger, and it is time to call a halt. "That's all, and the constable will see that the verdict is carried out and the honor of Sandy Bend restored to its pristine glory." M. QUAD. The Boy's Point of .View. "I don't see .why . boys don't have whiskers," grumbled Tommy. "Men don't need 'em, and boys do." "How is that?" "Why, men wash their faces anyhow, so whiskers ain't no use to 'em, but they'd save a boy ."a, lot of bother an.' trouble." I . Just thetn Tommy's mother -caught him and led him to the washroom, from which came back the wail: "Didn't'I tell you? She'd never know if I had whiskers!" Chicago Post. Wanted a Change.

Cured by One Bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. "When I had an attack or the grip last winter (the second one) I actually cured myself with one bottle of Cham berlain's Cough Remedy," says Frank W. Perry, editor of the Enterprise, Shortsvllle, N. Y. "This Is the honest truth. I at times kept from coughing myself to pieces by . taking a teaspoon ful of this remedy and when the cough ing spell would come on at night I would take a dose, and it seemed that In the briefest interval the cough would pass off and I would go to sleep perfectly free from cough and its ac companying pains. To say that the remedy acted as a most agreeable sur prise is putting it very mildly. I had no idea that It would or could knock out the grip, simply because I had nev er tried it for such a purpose, but It did. and it seemed with the second at tack of coughing the remedy caused it not onlT be of less duration, but the pains were far less severe, and I had not used the contents of one bottle be fore Mr Grip had bid me adieu.
