CONKLING IN A JACK POT.
Vcrj Mtich EmbKrrMmed Then till At

Little Central Wanted tho Story Kept
Quiet, but It Wm Too Good.
"1 wiib in a pokor gamo,1 writes n
correspondent of tlio Washington Star,
"in tho winter of 1870, xvhru aoiuilor
CoukliriR nud Gouernl Phil Shoritlau
woro players. It was n fonr handed
tjanio, and .lohn Chain borl in was tho
other player. ThiH panic at Chittnher
lin's was always for n $5 (limit at first,
with tho undemanding that along to
ward morning, after u couplo of hours
of warming up, anybody could Enggest
the removal of tho limit if ho wantid
to. Tho way Conkling and Sheridan
bluffed coch other that night was a cau
tion. 13oth men seoiued to strlko out
luck altogether a,H an clement in their
good imturotl play against each other,
ami ns both of them cnught fine hands
.occasionally when engaged in this tug
of war of bluffing neither of them could
get an exact lino ou tho other, and it
was better than a piny to study their
faces ut Iho Rhow downs. Conkling was
having all tho succcfs during thu latter
part of tho night, aud it was fun to
hear Littlo Phil softly ntter dark and
.woolly things nuder his breath when,
tinio after time, Conkling would show
n hand consiHtiug of nothing at all after
having scared fcheridan out or produce
a gorgeous set of fours or a full hand at
such timcH ns Sheridan, deciding that
the senator wan bluffing, would 'call
"'Bite him. Sheridan, Chnmbcrlin
would E.iy amusedly on thesu occasions,
and Sheridan would tell ChamLerliu to
go to tho diekous nud cull lor uuuthcr
deck of cards.
"Wo started tho last round of jnck
pots with n new deck, bhoridau dealt
tho first mess himself, aud after it had
gono around nnd none of the three of us
conld open it Sboridan opened it him
Eolf. Noithor Chamberlln nor 1 had
auy right to stay ou our hands, so it
was left between Sheridan and Conk
Jing, who staid. Conkling took three
cards and turned his littlo pair into
threes. Sheridan dished himself out
three cards nnd bit his cigar hard whun
ho saw his hand Ho mado a $o bet to
draw Conkling out. and tho pcuutor
raised him ;Jf. It passed between them
with thoso 25 bets until thero was
nearly $800 in tho pot, botli men scru
tinizing each other pretty carefully ut
" 'I don't know so much about you
this time,' said Conkling finally, 'and
I think I'll Jufat call you for safety.'
"Both laid their hands down at tho
samo timo. Conkling had tlireo nines,
and ho locked nt Sheridan htrnugcly
when he saw tho polor of Shoridan's
three cces. Both Chamberlin aud my
solf also paw what was xvrong at tho
Eitmo instant, but wo only smiled aud
let tho two men hnvo it out. Sherlduh
had n broad grin ou his fiicu nud was
just nbout to rako in tho pot. Conkling
was gazing nt tho littlo man of iron
with u puzzled look in his oyea.
" Oh, i Bay, thero, Phil, just wait a
minute," said ho. 'Do you really think
that pot helongs to you?'
"'Belongs to mo?' Eaid Sheridan.
'Well, it does if tho noso on my faco
bolougs to mo. ' And again ho reached
over to hoo in tup pot.
"Conkling ran his hand through his
hair nnd again stopped Sheridan with u
" '1 don't remember ever having soon
that sort of thing before,' ho euid. 'Did
" 'See what sort of thing before?' said
Sheridan. 'What in blazes aro you tulk
ing about, Conkling?'
"For reply Conkling put one finger
upou ono of Sheridan's aoea nnd then
pointed to nnother ouo of the aces.
" 'I never saw a jack pot won with
thrco nces, two of which happened to
be aces of diamonds,' buid Conkling,
"Sheridan looked nt his hand, lying
faco up ou tho table before him, nnd
his face becninp tltry red. The conhter
nation on his counteuauco was really
"'Why,' taid he after a minute,
'blamed if I don't beliovo I'm nothing
better than nn involuntary swindler.
That other nee, you see, is n club. I
opened the pot on a pair of red aces,
and they wore, of course, these aces of
diumouds. Chamberlin, 'turning to the
amused boniface, 'turn mo out of doors
as a frand nnd n bhort card player, will
" 'And havo the army flro a volley
over tho ruinB of my house?' replied
Chamberlin. 'Hardly. Anyhow, I'd
rathor seo you nud Conkling ongugo in
n rough und tuniblo light over the thing.
Go abend, tho pair of you. We'll too
fair play, ' turning to mo.
"Of course tho extra nee of diamonds
had slipped into tho deck accidentally
beforo it left the mannfucturer's hands,
but Sheridan, when hu hnd in a measure
recovered, (rom his surpriso of tlio revo
latiou, made a humorous pretension
that he had known tho whole pmig ull
along nnd convulsed the three of, us" by
feelingly appealing to Conkling to re
frain from exposing him to tlio wprld
for tbo sake of his family and all that
sort of thing. The hand beiug foul, the
pot was of course divided."
The wild young man decides to Bottle
dowu aud becomo serious To begin his
reform ho has counted np his debts auu
found the tota 146,017 francs 1)5 cen
times. "What are yon, going to do about it?"
asked his friend.
"Pay the 17 francs and 86 centimes
at once and make arrangements for the

"Some time," said the young man,
"when business is light I urn going to

"Going to turn in somo comio verso,

tiously. "No, I'm not," answered tho young
man, with emphasis, "but I'll bet wluu
I get through with them they will
know a few things about their business
that tbey never knew befcro. "
"Oh, they've been having fun with
you, havo they?" osclaimcd thu older
man. "But you mustu'tmind that. It's
nil in good nnturc, you know."
"They haven't mentioned mo," as
sorted tho young man, "but they havo

"Well, just about two mouths after
wo woro married my wife informed mo
ono morning that her mother was com
ing to visit us. I immediately thought
of tho comio papers. Beforo sho became
my mother-in-law I rather liked thu old
lady, hut of courso things were different
after tho wedding. Consequently I
stamped around nndsworo a hit and do
olared thnt 1 wanted it understood that
no relativo to cither party to tho con
tract could 6tep in thero and run that
house. Then my wife enmo back at mc
with tho statement that if her mother
wasn't wolcomo wo might as well come
to nn uudorstandiug ntoucoand arrange
for a separation. I replied that sho was
welcomo so long ns sho was willing tc
mind her own business, but that it was
a Well known fact thut no mother-in-law
ever had succeeded in doing that
yot. Nnturally the result was that when
her mother arrived my wife and I were
not on the best of terms, and it didn't
tako long for tho ojd lady to seo it.
When sho did seo it, sho ucted. "
"Roasted you, I suppose?" said the
"Roasted rac, nothing!" returned the
young man. "Shu roasted her daughter.
I happened to overhear it, und when she

Many purists coudemu such a rarr.M
as "no Eort or kind" on tlio grouud ol
tautology. I should Lo sorry, however,
to eeo it disappear, becausu it is u land
mark iu English philology. It is a relic
of tho fusion of Saxon and Norman
French. At thnt period mnny phrases oi
n bilingual character crept into use, and
this is one cf them. "Truth and honor"
is nuothor, truth being "troth, "or hon
or, ns in "by my troth." "Voico" us a
verb is much objected to, coining to us
moderns ns it does from American
sourcos e. g., to "voice" tho public
sentiment. I don't liko it and uevoz
uso it, but it occurs in Shakespeare.
Notoriously many so called Ameri
canisms nro old English provincialisms.
Tho purists thrcatpn, indeed, to become
insufferable peduutb. It is now tho cus
tom of tho printer's, roader our' great
authority to treat "nono" as invari
ably singular, a coiitractiiu for no cno.
But it is useful as n plural und is so
used in Shakespeare e. g., "Speak
daggers, but uso none." Why may ws
not continue to say, "I spoke to no wo
men nt thu meeting becauso tjiero wcr

"I wonder, "said tho middlo aged
man, "why wo take lifoso hard. At the

somotimes. Here I am well, say, CO,
with maybe 20 years ahead. Tlio cold
chances aro against my getting so many,
but take a hopeful view und say I've

boh? But just think of frittering ijway

"When I think of these things, I
mako np my mind that, by cracky, I
will not worry any more, and, oh, I
think I tako things more philonopbical
