"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- blor. blor."Well "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 Rack 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. HoAV Sl'ONGIJS AUK CAUGHT. ] Slimy MtiKBca of "Ijlvi'r" AVtiloli Be- ooiiio Clean mill Dry , The sponging Hoot ia composed of imall schooners ranging from tcu to forty tons , or oven smaller , writes a correspondent pendent of The Now York Times from Naisau , Eioh schooner carries from four to six men , and makes periodical trips out to the sponge bodv. Around Abaco , 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 bottom , make up their minds what sponges to take , and coizo hold of each ono oarofolly , dotnth it from the rock to which it clings , und lift it into the boat They are not tlio uica , delicate , und light-colored things wo ecu in uhop win tlllt'K.

Most people are taught , i the days of their freshness and innocence that the sponge is an animal , end whci they vielt Nassau they expect perhaps t RCO the epontjes nwimmlng about tli harbor , if indeed they do not surpris some of the more athletic ono climbing trees or making little cxcur sions ever the hills. But they are dis appointed when they learn thai the nni inol purt disappears entirely long bcfor the spontfo roaches a market.nna that th part wo use for mopping up fluido is only his house , the many roomed residence it which ho sheltered himself while at nea a regular marino tenement house , buil with great skill nnd architectural proci BIOII , in which many of the little bciat lived and died. After the sponges roac ! the deck of Iho vessel they nro claanoc nnd dried and go through a curing pro COIP. They then become the sponges o commerce , and nro divided into t-igh varieties in the Bahamaa. Some , calle d "lambswool , " are as fin and ooft na silk nnd very strong. Others although large and perhaps tough , are noarao and comparatively worthless There are , too , boqnot sponges , sill apon ca , and finger nud glove sponges The process for curing them h to keep them on dock for two or three days which "kills" them. Then they are pu in a krawl nnd Iccpt there from eight to ten days , and are afterward cleaned am bleached in the sun on the beach. Whci they reach Nassau the roots are cut ol rnd the sponges are trimmed an' droased for exportation. Nearly every darky in Naesau understands how to do tliis trimming part. The symmetry o the sponge must po preserved as much a possible , nnd if there nro any place whcio coral sand has adhered to tin sponSo , these plncca muat bo cut out , fo ; no amount of skill or cote will got rid o sand in a sponge , and the sand is sure to scratch anything it touches. The trimming is generally done very oxportli so that nnovlco would hardly BOO that sponge had been cut. T IKON JACK. An Amiaclniis Lltlgantl FojU tlie Sheriff and Dance * "With tlio Hells of the Hull. Commercial Advertiser. "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 darkncsa.

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 dicated horao-powor , or four times aa much aa his other well-known tugboat , Ella Andrews , develops. Capt.
