without trial , and huddled here without
any record of their offense or thuir fnti ) ,
with the knowlodgu that dead men

Tlio entire soil of the toner is , it ;
truth , ono vast graveyard. The work
men nro constantly turning up bones , to
which thu records of the place afford _ no
clue , and n few years ngo , when making
some repairs in the tloor , they came 01 :
numerous skeletons , as though people
fiad bean pitched into a pit without any
regular sepulture. Largo quantities of
charred bodies most probably those of
[ lemons burned for heresy were found
: lese to the church of St. Peter , and between -
tweon it and the crypt. During this
disarrangement of the dust of agestho remains
mains of Annu lioelyn , Catherine Uow-
ml , Dudley , Lady Jane Gray , Somerset ,
Monmouth , and the countess of Sails-
jury or at least skeletons which , from
: heir positions in the chapel , wcro bo-
iipvod to bo theirs with many other
listorical personages , were lighted upon ,
and decently rccoflinod and rointored ,
, ho undetermined remains being buried

scorned to Imvo boon hasty as , indeed ,
wo might except from the well-known
'act that Anne Boloyn'a body wai toesnd

vitli some arrow hcada hard by , was

"IJavo you any idea by whom or when
the g.-uno of fnro waa invented ? " asked n
reporter n few days ago while talking
with Ohnrloa Dunn , the well known gam-
"Well , that is n questnn , " replied
Dunn , creasing hia legs with a grunt of
supreme comfort and lighting another
cigar. "Faro , my boy , ciatoa back to the
inventors of almost all the games that require -
quire thought. 11 was invented , I Imvo
heard , by the Pharaohs after they had
got tired of playing chess and backcam *
mon , and all the other innocent little
gatmia which brought them so much en
joyment. But the now invention w s the
ruining of the Pharaohs , for they gambled
so much that finally the shepherd kings
wont for thorn and pulverized them , na
\ro say nowadays ; so tnro was temporarily
forgotten. The Ptolemys revived it , and
then it crossed over into Italy , where
mosaics in the ruins of Pompeii IMVO
been found representing two players
deeply absorbed in the primitive game ,
No , I'm not joking. 1 never joke about
any such oorlous matter its faro. But ,
honestly , no ono knows when the game
was really invented. It was ono of those
things which partook of the nature of
Topny nnd 'simply grow'd. '
"Tho earliest record wo have of the
game is in the thirteenth century , when
it had assumed considerable popularity
in Italy and Franco. I am inclined to
bellovo that it is of Italian origin. From
the Italian wo got the word "parlco , "
which ia used in the game now , and
moans to lut the stnko lie and doublo.
The Italian origin ia paroli. To miiko
paroli as it was originally called , a player
was required to bond ono corner of the
preferred card over , It was alwaya his
right to withdraw a bet after the tlmo
when ho had won hij first stake , but pre
viously to that ho had to lot his money
remain. At that time there were no
lay-outs. ' Every player had his own
and made his bets on thn cards that
o himself turned. When ho won ho
simply showed his card to the dealer and
ho was paid. A century ago no box was
used. The dealer dealt out his hands ,
and so ran a great chance of showing
most of the cards. The box la a great
protection against the inquisitive , and it
is really the only protection the player
has against any possible manipulation on
the part of the dealer. If faro was dealt
out of hand , as it was in former times ,
there would bo a decided number ol
shootings in this policoridden city.
"It I'M hard to say when faro was intro
duced into this country. The probabili
ties are that it was played in England
long before any ono over dreamed ot
colonizing the now world. Wo know that
it was played in Virginia long before the
revolution. Thu old planters wcro not
chary about hotting their slaves on the
turn of a card , pnd had none of the
Puritan narrowmindoducea which kept
faro out of Now England. The game
was played : it that time without n box.
The players choao their cards from thuir
own decks , and had nmplo opportunity to
manipulate it as they pleased. They got
no benefit from a split that is , when
two cards of a like denomination are
turned up and the stakes nro equally
divided between the player and the bank.
They didn't even have the advantage of a
'cuo box' to check off the cards which
had been dealt. Of course , there was
raeh betting in consequence , and manip
ulation was common on the part of the
bank nnd of the player , and you may bo
sure both took advantage of thoia changes
to the best of their ability. "
"Have tnoro been any recent changes
in the game1' ?
"I should think BO. And they all have
Iind a tendency to make the game much
Fniror than it was originally. Thirty
years ago , I remember that it iras a rule
that if n man put abet down on the table
! io was compelled to leave it there until
it had lost or won its equivalent. Now
lie is able to change his bets as many
times as he chooses. At that time when
a man sat down nt a faro-table ho sat
down only to bet to win. Now ho can
bet either to win or to loso. At that
; imo there wasn't any such a thing us n
copper ; now a man can copper the ace
and bet that it will lese nnd still win on
a loaing card. Then there is coneidorn-
) lo diflercnco in the way faro is played
n the west. If n man puts his chips at
.ho corner of the king heading to the
dpuco in this city the bet takes in tlui
dug and the deuce only ; but out west
uch a placing of chipa would mean the
dug , queen , ace nnd dcuco. Checks
lave only been used during the
aat fifty years. Previous to the ivory
3iska which represent so much money ,
coin waa used , and oftontimea the faro
able would bo strewn with gold and sil-
cr as the game went on. The first time
are wns played publicly in Now York
vns in 1827. It increased to an alarm-
ng extent untl ) 1831 , before the great
ire , when that calamity loft the city nl
most without money. The distress of
ho following two or thrco years almost
ailed the giimo , but , ns business revived
and money again became plenty , faro
arose from the ashes , as it were , and returned -
turned ita sway. In about 1810 the legislature -
islaturo passed a bill declaring faro to bu
illegal gambling , und thenceforth when-
n'oraman wanted to 'buck the tiger , '
lie had to do it on the sly. Virginia
look action forbidding the game in iho
last century. In 1750 eho passed i law
requiring 'thn subjects of the king to ro-
fratu from playing the game of faro. '
The penalties fur breaking this old law
were very severe , including heavy line's
and a long term of imprisonment.

The sponging Hoot ia composed of

pendent of The Now York Times from

Andros island , and Kxuma are some of
the principal fisheries ; there are hardly
any of vftlun in the itnmcdiato vicinity of
Nassau. The mon do not diva for them ,
as epongo fishers in tlio Mediterranean
do , but use long-handled things like
oy tor-ton s to fish them out of the
water. They do not "go it blind" and
probu in tlio mud , like oystormou ; in thu
clear wntor ttuy can see every Inch of the

that the sponge is an animal , end whci

"Shoot Iron Jack , " an audacious brig
and , fifteen years ngo , was a terror to
several counties of northern California
Ho waa well educated , handsome , tall ,
the son of a minister , so all accounts
agreed , and hia name had been gained by
the immunity from bullet-wounda that ho
appeared to possess , Men did not hesitate -
tate to declare that they had soon good
shots fire point-blank at hia breast and
miss him squarely , lie became knowi
as the most expert horse thief in the re
gion , and innumerable exploits of hia are
related in Shasta nnd Tohama counties.
On ono occasion ho threw his pcrsuers oil
his track , assumed a disguise , met the
ohoriirs party , delighted them with hia
aongoand stories , put up with them at a
little village inn , and during the night
escaped with three of the best horses in
the party , after having turned the others
loose in the woods and leaving a saucy
and funny letter of thanks ending with
an apt latin quotation for the sheriff ,
whoso wrath waa of such an abiding seri
that brief would have been Jack's life-
loasa had ho been overhauled ; in
lees than two minutes ho then ircro
suredly hauled over and dangling from an
oitk limb.
Ono of the most characteristic feats of
this fellow was performed at a mountain
ball in a log cabin. Young people had
assembled from many milca distant , some
of them coming a day's journey. The
ball had hardly begun when a tall ,
black-haired , well-dressed , handsome
stranger appeared and excited much
comment. A particularly handsome
young girl wns taken out on the floor by
her partner , und suddenly the stranger
stopped up und with great politeness re
quested the gentleman to resign the lady
in his favor. lie whispered his name in
the young man's ear , paid a compliment
to the young lady , took her forth and
led the dance , The word wont around
that Slicet-Iron Jack had como to dance
with all the pretty girls ; that ho had
several revolvers , never missed a shot ,
and probably had friends bid within call.
The loiig and the short of it was that the
thirty young men present were terror
ized , and , ono another , the handsome
brigand dauccd with the prettiest maid
ens in the room. Then ho bowed to the
excited assomby , stood in the doornray a
BRcnnd , said mockingly that it was a pity
the mon were not as bravo as the ladies
wore handsome , and diaappcarcd in the

a built of the best boiler etetl plates.
Her engines are compound , ! )2 ) inch

diameter , turning a nine foot propeller
wheel. She will have two steal boilers
of great strength , each 8i feet front and
13 foot long , designed to pass United
States inspection for a working
pressure of 157 pounds per eqnaro
inch , which pressure will , however -
over , bo limited in practice by Mr.
Enda'a ordora to 125 pounds. At this
pressure the engines will develop 700 in

and those of the Ella Andrews were built
to pass inspection for ICO pounds per

in constructing the ship railway , and in
