“Been up in the mines?” inquired
Sing Seven.
“Yep,” replied the Footprint. “Just

Milton yesterday and rode into Stock

to walk or come as freight I came as

“Sure,” said Sing Seven.
"The unpleasant feature of the trip,’
continued tlie Footpiint, “was the base
betrayal of confidence on tho part of
the brukeman with whom I negotiated
for an undisturbed passage. For a cash
consideration of six bits and a drink of
liquor he verbally contracted to waybill

Stockton. We went up street to take
the drink and—well, yon know how one
word brings on another. By train time

fided to me on the way through the
yards that he owned the whole train
and 1 could ride anywheroaml anyway
I wanted to. I told him that I was sur
rounding at least a quait of Milton
whisky and if it was all the same to
him and he had a nice, dry, empty box
car 1 would bo shipped as an unbroken
original package. He agreed, and wo
went over where the train was stand

brakeman ran a door open, gave me a
hurried boost in and ran tho door shut

lu the northwest they still talk about
the last poker game that Major Ed
wards and Htanley Huntley played to
gether They were pioneer editors of
pewspapers in Dakota in tho old terri
torial days. Huntley had just wild his
paper in liismarck for #3,500 cash and
was coni in it east. He and the major had
sat in many a quiet gamo together, and
Huntley went over to the major's office
to say goodby and play one last game.
The major produced the cards, locked
the door, and the two faced a green ta
The major had tho reputation of be
ing a skillful dealer, and Huntley’s
previous experiences bad taught him
that cards sometimes appeared in tho
major’s hand on a show down whose
legitimate existence could only be ac
founted for on the hypothesis that the of miracles had not passed. Ho he
had fortified himself for this farewell
game not only with the $2,500 which
he had received for his newspaper prop
erty. but also with four large but not
overworked aces.
There was no limit, but for an hour
the game went ulong quietly enough
The major was out $800 or $400, but,
as both players remarked, the game was
“young yet.” At last a jack pot for $50
came and remained. Hack and forth
across the table went the deck Neither
man could gut openers Each time the
deal passed the pot was sweetened $40
At last there wus $840 on the table.
The major dealt Huntley looked over
his cards and found four jacks.
As has been said, the major was a
slick dealer, and when a big pool was
at stake and it was his deal he gener
ally managed to give his opponent a
good stiff hand, while taking care that
he himself had one just a shade better
Ho. when Hnntley found the fonr
jacks in his hand it seemed to him that
the time had come to precipitate his
fonr aces into action The jacks were
retired unostentatiously, and with a
faint—a very faint—shade of disap
pointment in his voice Huntley an
“I can't break it. ”
Tin* major was still examining his
cards with that hesitating air that huiiio
people always believe means “studying
ont a straight " Finally he said:
“I’ll have to break it for $500 It's a
big pot.”
Huntley looked inonrnfnl and said
“I’ll stay Qinline a card. ’’
"None for me," announced the major
briskly, as he threw over a card and
laid down the deck. “I'll bet you $600. ’
“I'll raise you ♦.100,” said Huntley
“Five hundred more,’’ said the major
“When I sat down, "said Huntley,
“I had |2,600 in my pocket. I’ll raise
you the full amount of that on this one
hand If 1 lose. I'm broke.”
The major took another look at his
band and replied
“1 haven't got as much as that in
cash I’ll muke out a bill of Bale of the
building and plant, newspaper and all,
and put that in the pot. If you win,
you cun hold it till tomorrow, when I’ll
settle. ’
“Go ahead,” said Huntley.
The major wrote out the bill of sale
and threw the slip of paper into the pot
on top of the big pile of greenbacks
Both men had emptied their pockets.
“Now I’ll call you,” said the major
“Fours,” said Huntley, and he laid
down his four one spots. The major
never flinched. He examined the aces,
one after another. Then he laid down
his hand and said briefly:
“Yon win, Stanley All I had was
four queens. ”
The next day the major redeemed his
bill of sale and Huntley came to New
York and began to write the “Spoopen
dyke Papers," which were first publish
ed in the Brooklyn Eagle. He’s been
dead for years now.
About two years after the famous
poker game Major Edwards was visit
ing New York, and be looked up Hunt
ley They dined together at the Astor
House After coffee and when the cigars
hud been lighted the major said
“Stanley, of course when gentlemen
like you and I play poker together
there’s never any question about the
game beiug straight But there’s one
thing that’s been puzzling me for two
years, and 1 want to ask yon about if
“Go ahead, major," said Huntley,
putting his cigur
“Stauley, why in thunder did yon
refuse to open that last jack pot when
yon had four jacks in yonr huudT”
"Major. ” returned Huntley thought
fully, laying down bis cigur, “who
dealt that last handT"
“1 did, HtMUley," said the major.
“Well, then, major, since four aces
Wou the pet, how in thunder could it
bare been a straight gainst"
“That’s so.” said the major re

A uionx' has It'ii .■ i 0 • ii to bo
the bitterest tneni) of . omankind.
Just why the average run of femininity
should fear such a helpless, harmless
little creature cannot lie explained.
During the civil war a famous female
spy was betrayed through the instru
mentality of a mouse. The woman was
niaxur ■ .ding as a boy and succeeded
admit Criy in deceiving the enemy un
til it' evi ning while dining with a
party of men at a farmhouse a black
Dionco jumped from a cupboard to the
table, almost in the face of tbe sup
posed boy With a shrill feminine
shriek the spy threw up her arms and
rushed across the room, and, springing
on a couch, went into hysterics from
sheer fright The men, of course, sus
pected her and, rather than be searched,
she confessed, but by tbo aid of the loy
al old farmer and his wife she made her
escape in the night.
A well known woman physician of
Chicago says she can do any kind of
surgical work without a tremor, but
the sight of a mouse turns her strange
ly ill and thoroughly “unwomans” her.
Another woman has such a terror of
mice that she recently wont insane
through fright at one of the wee crea
tures. The woman was sweeping her
cellar when a mouse darted ont from
an old barrel and ran about her feet.
Hhn tried to step on it and beat at It
with her broom, calling piteously t<.
her little boy to help her. But the boy,
thinking site was in fun, frfghtened
the terrified mouse toward the woman
whenever it tried to get away. At
length the boy rushed at It In earnest
and the mouse darted under tbe wom
an’s skirts and she fell to the floor in
sensible, only to lose her mind when at
length consciousness returned to her.—
