Saratogo Special to Philndolplii
Times : It has recently boon said tha
"bunko" is ono of tlio lost arts , bu
among the swells ol this cool and delightful
lightful resort is nu ox-bunko king wli
has acquired wealth , and under his nov
name is a successful broker in Wai
Btrect. Ho is tall and graceful in car
riugo , and keeps the linost tournou
that dashes pant the Grand Union hotu.1
Not one in a thousand knows that it is
not ton years since ho sola a ' 'gold
brick" to John \V. Garrett , the woll-ro-
luomborod president of the Baltimore &
Ohio railroad , for $10,000 , and eot away
with the money , The railroad presi
dent's "brick" was found to contain
gold to thu amount of 81 in the left-hand
corner thereof. Garrett never told the
Btory , but it leaked out through the
"chevalier , " who now occupies 0110 of
the best rooms at the United States
hotel , and whoso chock would bo good
in Saratoga for $100,000. ,
Engaging this man in conversation ,
I asked htm what wore the requisites
for a successful bunco operation. Ho re
plied :
"Three things are absolutely need
ful :
" 1. The bunco man imibt bo dressed
in the height of fashion.
" : i Ho must have unbounded faith in
the credulity and gullibility of man
" ! 1. Tie must bo of gontcol address
and ho must have subllmo audacity. "
"Tho rest is easy. I remember that
'Hungry Joe , ' who was finally 'sent up'
by Inspector Williams , of Now York ,
used to boast that lie sold a 'gold bride'
to ex-Senator Gordon , of Georgia , and
it is really astonishing the number of
victims a woll-drossed sharper can cor
ral onto in a your. "
TALKS or mrxco 31 KN.
A Philadelphia , gentleman , who sat
on the plami of the hotel , spoke up and'
eaid : "lean believe , sir , all you bay ,
for McColgan , who to long kept a pool
room iu Philadelphia , was bounced out
of & ? ,000 by a young man who met him
in Cincinnati , and played no newer
racket than the old ouo of being Mr.
Droxol's nephew. "
My handsome acquaintance , who
varied the monotony of his story by ti
visit to the long bar room ) where the
Roodcror was always cold , remarked
that ho "didn't think there was a 'pro
fessional' who would stoop to So small
an act as to boat McColgan out of $3,000
for a professional bunkoor always struck
for higher game. " Ho described with
minuteness the success whiah attended
a celebrated crook who called himself
Cyrus. W. Maltaland , or Henry Wost-
brook. Putting his foot on the plnzzu ,
and with n fiOc Flora dl Cuba between
his lips , ho told the story in those
words :
"Cyrus Maltaland wns the discarded
son of a great English manufacturer ,
who has twice boon n Member of Par
liament , and who supplied his eon's lux
urious tastes aslougos that was possible ,
Cyrus was born with , elegant deslros ,
which nothing less than Hothchild'f
wealth would gratify. Crookedness ol
lha crookodcst kind caused Cyrus to
seek American shores.
"His first field of operations was
Capo May , whpro lie got away with a
MU < )0 ) chock from a rich nuUitnoraan ,
who was so ashamed of being duped by
ono of his own , proti-ndcd , to\s'nsmen
that ho took care never to toll the talc
himself , But the Jersey authorities
did not take kindly to Maitahuul , or to
Ills heathen chinco games. T'lo ' police
force could not bo induced to 'stand in
with him , ' as the saying goes , and
ho was glad to got away from the
"Maitalund's favorite alias was Henry
Wustbrook. Ono cool morning in early
July the register of the Choptank house
bore on its pages in a bold , clear com
mercial hand the iiamo of 'Henry
Westbrook. ' lie brought loiters they
were in a good biiuinoss hand , for ho
hud written them him-olf from bomo
the loading people of Haltimoro. lie

on Atlantic avouue by the finest chest

month Westbrook devoted himself to
the social graces only , and happy the
'Choptank' maiden that hud the after
noon 'call' for a drive behind the high-
stepping chestnut.
"Ill August wealth and fashion had
poured into the big city by the sou.
Tills was We&tbrook's time. Ho rode
less in the afternoon , saying ho was en
gaged in * hanging some valuable pic

public prints.
"Still Westbrook continued the idol
of tho'Choptank' maids and dowagcr.s ,
and a rich ironmonger fell into his not
and left behind $1,000 in cash and his
check for $5,000. The iron man lirst
took a hand at the game , at which the
greenhorn is allowed to win , with 'a
dead sure thing' that the next lime ho
puts up cash or check ho is sure to lose ,
A not infrequent trick of Westbrook 'a
was to profess to tear up n largo check
and accept a small ono , which always
ended in Mr. Bunko Man's keeping
both checks , which sooner or later
turned up against the victim's bank ac

"The iron man did not worry over his
81,000i0b3 , but the $ .5,000 check struck
him hard , and ho telegraphed his bank
in Philadelphia , one of the strongest
financial iiintitutlons in Iho city , to stop
payment. This brought the iron mon
arch's name into the papers , and \Vest-
brook , on Iho arrival of the 10 n. m.
train at Atlantic Oily , was named as the
somewhat celebrated bunko sharp of
Baltimore and Now York. The 'Chop-

The grand flourish of trumpets often
heralds the advent of an article which
'ails , when tried , to justify the noise
made in its behalf. The unassuming
merits of Van Duzor's Flavoring Ex
tracts , derived frojn choice fruits , of
standard purity , and elected over a
quarter of a century ago to the chief
iluco among flavors , are too well known

Mr. CnnipbeU'H Air Ship America
Nearly Heady to Show AVIiat It Can Do.
Now York Sun : "I don't propose to
ross the Atlantic , or go to the North
Polo , or to conquer any cyclonisor ride
any blizzards. What I do intend is
simply to sail easily and gracefully , not
too high , but just high enough in the
upper air , in calm weather , from 0110
city to another , and that much I cer
tainly will do , probably within a
month. "
So says Peter C. Campbell , the in
ventor of an air ship now Hearing com
pletion. The ovoid form above the ear
is a balloon of silk forty-two foot long
and twenty-four feet in its greatest di
ameter , with a capacity of lb,000 cubic
foot , and will bo charged with hydro
gen gas. Connecting the balloon with
Iho arrow-like rod beneath is a keel of
the sumo material as that composing
the body of the balloon. Suspended
below that polo is a boat-shaped car ,
containing the machinery for propul
sion and direction , with a contra ! well-
like baskqt for passengers. This car is
thirty-six feet long and bovon foot wide
in the middle , with a depth of four
foot in the basket. The basket is
made of wicker work , with a bottom
tom of red cedar , very light , but
strong. ' The rest of the car is con
structed almost wholly of rattan , spruce
and silk. To avoid unnecessary weight ,
the putting together of its parts has
been done with boat builders' glue and
waxed linen thread , instead of nulls or
screws. On the sides are wings seven
teen feet long and seven feet in extreme -
tremo width , made of silk stretched to
rattan frames , which it is not intended
shall bo Happed , but sot at suoh var
iable untries as may bo required by the
direction of the wind , to give an otlcol
similar to that produced by the out
spread wings of faoma great birds , like
the albatross , that seem to Ily without
motion. Tills olTect will bo further en
hanced by two great pairs of wings , fore
and aft 'of the basket , that may bu
closed , opened and bet at will , as requis
ite to aid in elevating , depressing or
directing the structure.
It is not purposed by Mr. Campbell
that the balloon shall have vary much
moro lifting capacity than sulllciont to
neutralize the weight of the machine
its occupants and the necessary ballast
To ascend , it will bo necessary to em
ploy the force of a propeller whoo

lies horizontally boncath the has
kot. Professor Ritchel demonstrate !
that a iilMuch wheel BO employed
novlng with great velocity , would over
come a dead Height of fourli'on pounds
> ut upon an exactly ballaneed balloon.
An application of 'blcyclo treadles and
Multiplying gears rotates the propeller.
The btiniu power can also bo applied to
the rotation of another eight-foot pro
filer at the stern , or to ono or moro of
, hroo other propellers which are to steer
with. There is also a rudder made liKe
.ho wings at the bow inslcad of the
stern of the car , and worked by lines
from the banket. The roar propeller ,
instead of having blade * , will bo made
of steel rods and silk , curiously put to
gether , so that when in motion it will
throw it nlf inlo the form of a two-twin
screw. This is an invention of C'arl
Myers. Another attachment is a sort of
parachute arrangement thai , whom not

Peculiar Klectricnl Phenomena.
Some very singular electrical phe
nomena , says the English Mechanic ,
wore observed on two very dry days at
a printing olllco in May once , when the
establishment seemed to bo converted
into a huge electrical battery. Electric
sparks several centimetres long could
lie drawn with the lingers from all parts
> f th'o printing machinery , iust as may
)0 done from a charged electric ma-
liine. The action of the sparks bo-
amo so pronounced that the laycrs-
011 and takors-od ( who , it bhould
) o remarked in Gorman print-
ng olllcos are mostly young
vomon ) refused to work , as burning
iparks were omitlod every time the ma-
ihines were touched with the hands.
LMip electrical phenomena wore most
striking in the machines used for litho
graphic printing. A strong1 paper made
) f cellulose was being printed at the
time , and the lakors-oll observed a
slight crackling as the sheets , when nd-
lorod pretty closely to the oil clolh cov
ering of the cylinder , wore being wilh-
irawn. Tliis crackling was finally de-
velopcd into a loud explosion , accom
panied by beautiful Hashes from ten
x > twelve centimetres ( from four
nehes to live inches ) in length.
The discharges are stated to
iiiyo been moro effective the moro
quickly the sheets loaded with eloc
-ricity wcro withdrawn. A small oircu-
.ar saw , mounted about four inches from
an iron column , discharged at intervals
of from twenty to thirty seconds , when
driven , powerful electric sparksaccom-
panicd by loud explosions , upon the col
umn. These phenomena wore observed
for hours , and continued for two days ,
when the printing ollice bocumo free
from electricity , and has remained so
since. The following explanation is
[ riven by Iron of the occurrence.
The outer walls of the building
in which the printing machinery is
placed are separated from the surround
ing soil by a thick layorof nsphaltoserv
ing to keep the moisture arising from
the soil from penetrating the walls. In
the present case the asphalto at the
same time served to isolate the electric
ity generated within. The floors of the
boyoral maohina rooms are also laid
thick in asphalto , and the machinery is
fixed direct to the llooring , so that it is
likewise perfectly isolated. There are
only a few iron columns having direct
connection with the earth. On the
morning of the day on which the start
ling phenomenon described was
llrst observed , all the machine bolts
had been greased with a mixture con
sisting of resin and linseed oil , serving
to increase the friction between the
bolts and the pulleys. As soon as the
machinery was set in motion each indi
vidual pulley was converted iulo an
oleclric machine on a largo scale , nega
tive electricity being formed on the
belt covered with rosin , and positive
electricity on the iron pulley. The
stored electricity , of course , was immo-
mcdialoly given olT whenever one of the
machines , which for the time being
were changed into accumulators or sec
ondary batteries , was "tapped. "

St. Louis Globe-Democrat ! The pro
priety of a bill introduced a day or two
ago by Chairman llolman , of the committee
mitteeon public lands , into the United
States hou--o of representatives to sot
apart a largo tract of land near C'ochito ,
on the Kio Grande , in New Mexico , us
a national reservation , on account of its
many arehu-'ologieal remains , was illus-
Iraled and confirmed bv Hon. Amanda
Chavez , ono of the leading citizens of
the territory , who lives not far from
that section of country , and who comes
occasionally to El Paso on business.
Ho discovered , a short time ago , ono
mile north of the little town of San
Mntoo. the ruins of an extensive city ,
the existence of which had never even
been suspected boforu. The action of
the winsliado covered the larger portion
of the ruins with sand and other de
tritus , and converted the whole inlo an
extensive mound , and it was only a severe
vere rainstorm and cloudburst , 'sweep
ing uway ono nnglo of this mound and
disclosing some heavy btono walls that
made this discovery possible. Mr.
Chavez has since uncovered one or two
of the ruins and obtained a number of
interesting relics. A skeleton was
found having throe strands of beads
around it.-t nock ono of lorquoiso , ono
of jet and Iho other of bono. There
wore also largo earrings of jet and tur
quoise with the skeleton , and remains of
liair , which was not black , but light
brown , besides ornamental pottery and
arrow-heads with a quantity of maize ,
partly carbonized.
Tlioskeloton , with the articles enum
erated , was found in a small chamber of
masonry built up witli very adhesive
cemenl. The excavations thus fur miulo
have discovered a largo building with
massive slono walls and a tower at oaoh
corner. It looks moro like the remains
of a citadel than an ordinary dwelling.
The masonry is of the best kind , aud
the interior 'chambers are plastered and
painted white. In the center of this
structure wius found a rooorvoir , from
which btono acqueducts led in many di
rections. A dim tradition among the
native Pueblo Indians located hero a
prehistoric city named Guato , which
was btill in existence at thu time of
Corloz's coming to America.

She tried to regain her losses by a series

to purchase the necessaries of life. The
"list valuable in her possession , a gold
jard case , was pawned yesterday. She
has written and telegraphed to her

Monday , Au 1888
Kearney , the " .Minneapolis of Nebraska , " so-called on account of its unrivalled
Water Power , is now coming to the front as u railroad center. The bonds for the
Santa Fo have been voted , insuring us the greatest and best road in the world.
The Missouri Pacific will soon complete the remaining 23 miles , and the branch
up Wood River will be ironed this season. These now roads , together witli the
packing and canning plants now started , will give us a greater boom than any
other city In the west. Kearney only ncodR some wholesale houses to give us the
supremacy between Omaha and Denver. For the purpose of building a large job
bing house on the block soutli of the Midway Hotel , I will soil at auction on
Monday , August 27th , 1888 :
Kast of the Midway , now used for a lumber yard. This is tlio best corner for sale
in the city , and will soon be the center of business of 60,000 people , aud will bo
worth 10 times its present cost. I will also offer
Known as Swit/'s Sub-Division , being only 7 nloi'ks east of the main street , and 2
blocks from the street car lino. This if , the last opportunity to got good inside
property in Kearney at your own price.This tract lays as beautifully as the Garden
of Kdun , and is a half nearer business than any other tract now on the market.
For First Class Kcbidonco Property it is entirely free from the objection that can
bo mentioned about other parts of the city. By investing a few dollars to make
your llrst payment , you can soon double your money , and at the hiimo time assist
in starting the jobbing house above referred to. Parties commencing dwellings
of the value of 8500 and upwards on those lots within 80 days uftor the sale will bo
entitled to a donation of live per cent of the value of the name in dry goods , gro
ceries or clothing at my stores.
TI-jKMS Ob1 SAJjK One-fourth cash , balance in payments every three months ,
or five per cont. Discount on deferred payments for cash.
