all good men and the convention cannot
make a mistake by nominating any of

made, every loyal republican will be
ready to roll up his sleeve* and go to
work in the interest of the ticket. The
fact that only good men will ask favors
from the convention will go far towards
roiling up an overwhelming majority for
the ticket. The outlook for the repub

Pierre Oapital, 22 If Evana, the MD
oouvicted and sentenced to serve 132
days in the county jail under the pro
hibitory law, intends to have his friends
secure his pardon he did a very rash
thing yesterday. Sheriff Guthrie went
in to visit the prisoners under his charge
yesterday morning and found that they
had broken a chair all to pieces. Ha
asked the men what they had done with
the pieces but they all refused to tell.
This seemed to be the commenoement
for a racket all around. Evans was one
of the leaders of the gang and made no
end of trouble and disturbance. Final
ly when Sheriff (iathne stepped inside
«f the railing he doused a pail of water
all over our worthy sheriff. This was
too much for the good nature of any
saint leave alone a human being. As a
result Sheriff Guthrie brought out his
hoee and the ducking that man Evans
got will last him for some time. They
aay cleanliness is next to Godhneas, well,
if such is the case Evans is a mighty
Godly man just now. Of course the
county officials upstairs over the jail en
joyed the racket set up by Evana They
enjoyed it ao much that just before
Evans got his ducking, which by the
way cooled off his ardor, they had chip
ped in to purchase a gatling gun and
blow the sinner into the great hereafter.
Evans is now in solitary confinement,
dieting on bread and water.

Henry (lay used to lose the greater
part of his congreesional salary," said
an old Washington gambler to a corre
spondent. "The game he used to
play was one in which tho blind was
6o cents and $1 to come in. There
was no limit in thoea day a as there
generally is to-day. A man could,
however, demand a slrht for hi*
imoney. lay s antagonist was gener
ally a man named liright, and both
preferred to play a two-handed game.
Tne cards weie cut one day and ("la
got the first deal. He was a better
card-shuftler than lives to-day. He
could hold his bands four feel apart
and tly'tbe cards from one to the other
without a single card falling. Gen
erally he dealt with one hand and
without a perceptible movement of
the arm, throwing each card to Its
proper place with hia lonj muscular
fingers. Clay was a poor poker play
er, however. He playod for excite
ment and not for gain, and as he was
careless about his bets he generally
came out a loser He always str»ddlei
the blind, and whatever hand he held
would rai
tne bet of his antagonist.
He used to bluff a great deal, and as
this would soon be found out he would
come out a loser,
For nearly two hours the night 1
speak of Clay had been having his
own way with Bright He held a
king full four times running and then
had a jack full. Bright did his best
to catch Clay in a bluff, but it was of
no use. lay had a hand that could
be beaten only by fours. The play
began at 8 o'clock, and by 10: i'
Bright had lost $1,.VK and had bor
rowed $500 from John Hancock. Af
ter that Clay's luck vanished, and by
midnight he had lost all his winnings
and $1. in*0 besides—all the cash he
had with him.
•it was Saturday night and Bright
proposed that they quit so they con id
go to church in the morning, but lay
wouldn't have it So he Arrowed
$600 from Brignt and let the game go
on. The game was continued, and by
dajrlight he owed Bright $1 600. He
liquidated the debt by giviug Bright
a deed for 320 acres of Kentucky
land and six shares of stock in a
Louisville bank.
"Clay went to okank *11 MM attna
that morning Tl hlle h? was talking
to the rector after it was over he put
his hand in his pocket and pulled ont
a deck of cards along with his hand
kerchief. They tuttered to the
ground, but Clay was not abashed,
and replacing them s*id that they
must have been placed there as a
practical joke."

over both horse and rider with a severe
crash. The brute was on the point of
tearing his victims with his formidable
tusks when this heroic young lady
sprang to the ground and placed
herself between the ooar and her in
sensible father. Miss Morey was
wholly unarmed, and therefore power

she had with her a large greyhound,
