WHEELER WILCOP.
Something About the Early IHstory of the
Game Its Career in A'cir York.
New York Commercial Advertiser.
"Have you any idea by whom or
when the game of faro was invented ? "
asked a reporter of the Commercia"
Advertiser a few days ago while talking
with Charlie Dunn , the well knowr
gambler. The question was asked in
the course of a conversation about gam
ing in general and particularly about
the prevalence of it in this city. Dunn
had previously said that there was more
gambling going on at present within
the precincts of this devoted city than
at any other in its histor3r.
"Well , that is a question , " replied
Dunn , crossing his legs with a grunt oi
supreme comfort and lighting another
cigai"Faro , my boy , dates back to
the inventors of almost all the games
that require thought. It was invented ,
I have heard , by the Pharoahs after
they had got tired of playing chess and
back-gammon and all the other inno
cent little games which brought them
so much enjoyment. But the new in
vention was the ruination of the
Pharaohs , for they gambled so much
that finally the Shepherd Kings went
for them and pulverized them , a
we say nowadays , so faro was
temporarily forgotten. The Piol-
meys revived it and it then crossed
over into Italy , where mosaics in the
ruins of Pompeii have been found rep
resenting two players deeply absorbed
in the primitive game. No , I'm not
joking. I never joke about any such
serious matters as faro. But , honestly ,
no one knows when the game was real
ly invented. It is one of those things
which partook of the nature of Topsy
and 'simply growed. '
"The earliest record ye have of the
game is in the thirteenth century , when
it had assumed considerable popularity
in Italy and France. I am inclined to
believe that it is of Italian origin. Fi'om
the Italian we get the word 'pariee , '
which is used in the game now , and
means to let the stake lie and double.
The Italian original is paroli. To make
paroli , as it was original called , a
player was required to bend one corner
of the preferred card over. It was al-
vfays right to withdraw a bet after the
time when he had won his first stake ,
but previously to that he had to let his
money remain. At that time there were
no 'layouts. ' Every player had his own
pack and made' his bets on the cards
that he himself had turned. When he
won he simply showed his card to the
dealer and he was paid. A century ago
no box was 'used. The dealer "dealt
out of his hands , and so ran a great
chance of showing most of the cards.
The box is a great protection against
the inquisitive , and it is really the only
jrotection the player has against
my possible manipulation on the part
of the dealer. If faro was dealt out of
land a& it was in former times , there
would be a decided number of shootings
n this police-ridden city.
"It is hard to say when faro was in-
reduced into this country. The pro-
jabilities are that it was played in Eng-
and long before any one ever dreamed
of colonizing the new world. We know
: hat it Avas played in Virginia long be-
ore the revolution. The old planters
vere not chary about betting their
slaves on the turn of a card , and had
none of the Puritan narrow mindedness
which kept faro out of New England.
Che game was played at that time with
out a box. The players chose their
cards from their oWn deck and had am-
) le opportunity to manipulate it as they
) leased. They got no benefit from a
plit that is , when two cards of a like
Lenomination were turned up and the
takes are evenly divided between the
> layer and the bank. They didn't even
lave the advantage of a 'cue-box' to
check off the cards which had been
lealt. Of course there was rash betting
n consequence , and manipulation was
common on the part of the bank and of
; he player , and you may be sure both
; ook advantage of their chances to the
best of their ability. "
Have there been any recent changes
n the game ? "
"I should think so. And they all
lave a tendency to make the game
much fairer than it was originally.
"
Thirty years ago , I remember that "it
was the rule that if a man put a bet
lown on the table he was compelled to
cave it there until it had lost or won
ts equivalent. Now he is able to
change his bets as many times as he
chooses. At that time when a man sat
lown at a faro table he sat down to bet
o win. Now he can bet either to win
or lose. At that time there wasn't any
such a thing as a copper ; now a man
can copper the ace and bet that it will
ese and still win on a losing card.
Chen there is considerable difference in
the way faro is played in the west. If
a man puts his chips at the corner of
the king heading to the dueen in this
city , the bet takes in the king and the
duece only , but out west such a placing
of chips would mean the king , queen ,
ace and duece. Checks have been used
during the last fifty years. Previous to
the ivory disks which represent so much
money , coin was used , and oftentimes
the faro table would be strewn with
rold and silver as the work went on.
The first time faro was played publicly
n New York , was in 1827. "it increased
: o an alarming extent until 1834 before
; he great fire , when that calamity left
the city almost without money. The
distress of the following two or three
years almost killed the game , but as
business revived and money again be
came plenty , faro arose from the ashes
as it were , and resumed its sway. In
about 1840 the legislature passed a bill
declaring faro to be illegal gambling ,
and thenceforth whenever a man
wanted to "buck the tiger" he had to
do it on the sly. Virginia took action
forbidding the game in the last century.
In 1750 she passed a law requiring "the
subjects of the king to refrain from
playing the game of faro. " The pen
altics for breaking this old law were
very severe , including heavy fines ant
a long term of imprisonment.
Our Jlitsslan 1'iircliasc.
Globe-Democrat.
For seventeen years the territory
which Secretary Seward paid Russia
$7,200,000 for has , while forming
part of the United States , remained
almost as much unknown as that sec
tion which appeared on the atlases o
fifty j'ears ago as "The Great Americai
Desert. " Recent letters from Alaska
in the Globe-Democrat have given out
readers better ideas of its possibilities
than anything before printed , unless i
was the report of Ivan Petroff , the
agent of the census bureau , recently
published. The territory is suppose !
to contain about 865,500,000 acres , eras
as big as Texas , California , Ncvadsi
and Indiana together. Just now its fur
interests is the most important source
6f revenue , the annual product being
about § 300,000 worth. There is plenty
of timber , but it is not likely to be mucl
drawn on for many generations to
come. Its mineral wealth is not ye
known , but there are indications tha
it may be considerable. The fisheries
are good , but they are too far from
market to be valuable.
It has been reserved for Lieutenan
Schawtka , the Arctic explorer , to at
tempt the development within the bor
ders of this Russian purchase of an
industry which , it is safe to say , woult
have been thought impracticable b }
ninety-nine out of a hundred persons
the raising of cattle. But he pro
poses to use the Aleutian Islands , nol
the mainland. The popular idea o :
their situation is that they are near the
arctic circle , and consequently have
rigorous and favorable climate. In
fact they are but little further nortl
than Washington territory , arc undei
the influence of a warm current from
the Japanese Islands , and have an av
erage yearly temperature of from 3G
to 40 degrees , Fahrenheit , ThejT are in
about the same lattitude as England
The grasses are rich , sweet and luxu
rious , and such cattle as have been
raised there were excellent recommen
dations to the islands as a home for
stock.
The islands are not so far from oui
Pacific coast as to be deprived of a mar
ket. They contain about 5,000,000 acres
half of which is supposed to be wel
adapted to cattle raising. The life of
cattle king there will be in many respects
more isolated than on the ranches
of Colorado or Nebraska , but will be
more independent and secure. Sclvwat-
ka has had enough experience in thai
region to know [ something nearly whal
it can be made to do , and he has in
duced capitalists to give him abundant
backing/ he succeeds , although it
must be confessed that we do not stand
in absolute need of more cattle ranges
just at present , there will have been
made a beginning at settling and utiliz
ing this territory which will more than
repay us for its purchase.

A Broken-Hearted Dog.
A remarkale story of a dog that died )
of a broken heart is told by Dr. Martin ,
of Atlanta , Georgia. W. H. Harvill , :
; he father-in-law of Dr. Martin , who
died recently at a ripe old age , was the ;
owner of a very fine bulldog , by name
'onto. "For months before his death , '
says Mr. Martin , "this dog was his con
stant companion. There was something
vlmost human in the devotion of the
dog to his master , and as a natural con
sequence , the master was particularly "
x > nd of his dog. The daily movements
of the old gentleman for a long time
jefore his last sickness were as regular
is those of a clock , and Ponte followed .
iim as surely as his very shaddow. :
When the old man died , Ponte took his :
> lace by the coffiin , and did not budge
mtil it was taken from the room.
Then he got up and followed it closely
to the hearse , and followed it to the
grave. Ponte came back to the house
i changed dog. Every night he lay upon =
lis rug in the porch and moaned piteously -
eously all night long. Everyday found
iim making the rounds just as he did
> efore the old man died. I tempted
iim with the choicest meat , but he re- ?
'used to eat. I offered him the warm
est milk ; he would not drink. He
went about with his head down , the "
very picture of sorrow. He dwindled
iway almost to a skeleton. One day , . )
ibout five weeks after the old man
'
lie : ! , Ponte came dragging his lank and
week body down the street. When he
got-by the fence he stopped there and
sank upon the ground. I ran to him ,
and lifting him in my arms , carried
lim into the yard , for he was dead. )
The statement that Dr. Sir W. Gull ,
the eminent London surgeon , lately
received professional fees of § 5,000 and
$7,500 for two visits , is evidence that ) ;
some of his patients also belong to the
great family of gulls.
Washington Fifty Tears Ago.
In those days it was no easy task to
reach Washington from distant parts of
the country , and the members of Con
gress from those localities used often to
leave their homes three or four weeks
before the opening of a session. A few
performed the journey in their own car
riages , and others rode saddlo-liorses
which they retained for their own use
during the session and then sold. Bat
a large majority of the Senators , Repre
sentatives , correspondents and claim
ants wno went to Washington traveled
in the stage-coaches , and there was al
ways a great demand for seats just be
fore the commencement of a session , on
all the lines which centered at the
capital.
Washington had then been called bj
an observant foreigner "tho city o
magnificent distances , " an appellation
which was well merited. There was s
group of small , shabby houses arounc"
the navy yard and the marine barracks
another cluster on the river bank jusl
above the arsenal , which was to have
been the business center of the metrop
ohs ; and Pennsylvania avenue from
the Capitol to Georgetown , with the
streets immediately adjacent , was linet
with Houses , many of them with shops
on the ground florr. The Executive
Departments were located in four brick
edifices on the corners of the square in
the center of which was the White
House.
Pennsylvania avenue the Appiai :
Way of our republic was graded while
Jefferson was President , at a cost o
$14,000 ; ho personally superintended
the planting of four rows of Lombard }
poplars along that portion of it between
the Capitol and the White House a
row along each curb-stone , and two
cqui-distaut rows in the road-way , whicl
was thus divided into three parts , like
Unter der Linden , at Beilin. In the
winter and spring the drive-way woult
be full of mud-holes , some of them oxlo
deep , and some of the cross-streets
would be almost impassable bed
of red clay , worked by passing
horses and wheels into a thick
mortar. On one occasion when
Mr. Webster and a friend undertook tc
go to Georgetown in a hackney-coacl
to attend a dinner-party , the vehicle
got stuck in a mud-hole , and the driver
had to carry his passengers , one at f
time , to the sidewalk , where they stoot
until the empty carriage could bepullec
out. Mr. Webster , in narrating this in
cident , years afterward , used to laugl
over his fears that his bearer would fal
beneath his weight and ruin his dress
suit. John Randolph used to call Penn
sylvania avenue " the great Serbouian
bog , " and descant on the dangers of a
trip over it , to or from the Union Hote
at Georgetown , in the large stage with
seats on the top , called the "Roya
George. "
It'liftl IH Life' '
Ralph Waldo Emerson reports a con
versa ! ion in which he and Margarai
Fuller and other trauscendantalists took
part. It is so like them that we wil
copy it.
On one occasion the question of the
"What" is life ? " "
day was , "Margare ;
did not believe we had , any of us , a dis
tinct idea of life. A. S. thought so
great a question ought to be given foi
a written definition. 'No , ' said Mar
garet , 'that is of no use. When we go
away to think of anything we never do
think. We all talk of life. We all have
some thought now. Let us tell it. C. ,
what is life ? ' C. replied : 'It is to
laugh , or cry , according to our organi
zation. ' 'Good/ said Margaret , 'bill
not grave enough. Come , what is life ?
I know what I think. I want to find
what you think. ' Miss P. replied :
'Life is division from one's principle of
life in order to a conscious reorganiza
tion. We arc cut up by time and
circumstance , in order to feel
our reproduction of the eternal law/
Mrs. E'We live by the will of God ,
and the object or life is to submit/ and
into * * * * *
went on Calvinism.
Margaret was then pressed to say what
she considered life to be. Her answer
was so full , clear and concise , at once ,
that it cannot but be marred by being
Irawn through the scattering medium
af my memory. But here arc some frag
ments of her satisfying statement. She
began with God , as spirit , life , so full as
to create and love eternally , yet capa
ble of pause. Love and creativeness
ire dynamic forces , out of which we , in-
Jividually , as creatures , go forth bear
ing his image , that is , having within
ur Doing the same dynamic forces , by
yliich we also add constantly to the
otal sum of existence , " etc. , etc. The
lext day , says Mr. Emerson , some of
hose who were present "begged Mar-
jaret to repeat the statement concern-
ng life with which she closed the last
jonversation. Margaret said she had
forgotten every word she said. "
