iiRalnst Jack Cirecu und Thomas Skinner ,
which was commenced last month insupeiior
court to obtain possession of n tlilrty-two-
ncro tract of Ijnd situated between Itig lalto
nnd the river. Tlio plaintiff claimed ihnt the I was hold by the defendants without any
rlk'lit or title , and shn drmaiuled that they
glvo It up to her , together with $150 damages ;
which she has sulTcicd by the detention. cshi
the answer which wius tiled jestord.iy the
defendants allege that the property , which Is
situated north of the river line according to
the old Bovornmont survey , is In thostuto of
Nebriblui , nnd that thcruforo the court has
no Jurisdiction In the caso. They ask that
tlio case bo dismissed nt plaintiff's cost. The '
trial was to imvo coma on yesterday , but us '

thoassltjiimont cover the entire stock nnd

sides all bMK accounts nnd notes. Accord-

Tlio failure resulted from a superfluity of
Imddouts. Mr. Gilbcit status that helms
been utterly unable to collect money thafwas
owing tiim from patrons , on account of the
general dullness , Ho thinks that If ho had
been able to collect this money ho would Imvo
succeeded in mooting his obligations and
Imvo passed over the dull season safely , His
creditors kept pressing him , however , nnd
ho had to take this way of satisfying them.
It was impossible to ascertain last evening
what the assets will amount to. A futr stock
Is on hand , nnd It is thought that it , together
with the amount ot outstanding accounts ,
will be sulllclent to pay nearly nil the dobts.

The case of Horace Hverctt vs the city was
resumed In distilcPcourt yesterday morning
nnd occupied tlio attention of the court until
n o'clock In the afternoon , when on account
of the Illness of Mrs. Pusey , wife of N. M.
I'nsoy , the attorney for the plaintiff , tlioro
was a continuance ) until sucb ttmo as Mr.
I'usoy shall bo able to attend. None of the
cases that followed In the assignment were
ready for trial , so an adjournment was taken
until this morning , after n few matters of
minor importance had been attended to.
A decree of foreclosure was granted In the
case of Charles Bowman against Kato 13.
and F1. J. Sackett on two lots situated In
Sackott's addition.
An objection to motion for a continuance In
the three cases in which J , P. Casady Is defendant -
fondant was filed by tlio attorneys for the
plaintiff , Wright & Ilsddwin. 'Ihoy allege
that n continuance has been asked for by the
attorneys for the every term of
comt since that of .lanuarv , ISUu , nnd has
each ti mo been supported by nllidavlts from
physicians stating that the health of the do
foiid.uit Is such as to tender the trial of the
case impossible. Thov argue from this that
tlio health of the defendiintls constantly fail
ing , and that n continuance of the case to an
other term of court will bo equivalent to
turning tlio plaintiff out of lourt altogether.
A motion for a continuance was filed in the
case of W V. Cranrlo vs Charlotte Mulsh ,
by the plaintiff , on the ground of a failure of
ceitaln depositions to arrive that it is
claimed are essential to the trial of the case.
A decico was given in the case of M. I ,

order of abatement. Several ether cases in
which Overtoil Is plaintiff were dismissed at
plaintiff's cost , at the request of Jacob Sims ,

in out ) of the Injunction cases in which David

the oldest tilings of the effete c-nbt hud
pnfiscd away und all things .hnd bccotno

Billy Owons' pliico to sco u mini walk in
and lii.y down iv certificate of deposit for
810,000 , on tlio ncohnvin T llrstnskcd the
banker to oovor his bet. Without a

ills $10,000 rortifioato of deposit , laid it
in his left hand drinsur , nnd the man in
front of the table went out ti wiser und u
poorer mini to begin prospecting airtiin
lit Poverty Flat.
I once saw u rich man como in nticl ,
tiring of 'picking' along with
bets on n single curd , he nonchalantly
tapped on tlio high card with his pencil
ll.H ho siilil : 'Mr. Denier , I'll just go you

hotlso . . . , near the Palace hotel , against
your $20.1)00 ) , ' nnd drawing out of his

u small safe in the corner of his gambling
hell , tjuiotly the outside betting' went

Htlll in the box. The deed still lay on
the aco. At last , when Mug. jack and
three aces were the only cards in the box ,
the hotter said : Hold' Dealer ! I'm d d
tired of that rice. It's going to split. I
want to put my brick house on the king ; .
Are you ngrocdi" 'Cert , ' exclaimed the
dealer , lie pulled. Outcainotho king- ,

bank lost. The man with tlio brick
hous.0 won $20,000. 'How will you have
your money , ' wild Mr. Dealer. 'Cheek , '
laconically answered the lucky gambler.
The dealer's hide partner filled out a
cheek , while the game went on. "
"Hilly Owens anil Judge Jones were as
no as the Siamese twins to each other.
The bond that bound them was n friend
ship that only ended with the life of
Judge Jones , who died with ills boots on
in his ort'n faro bank , killed by a cowboy
who got the drop on him in a light over
a disputed bet. One night in May , when
the game'run light , ' as gamblers bay ,
and Judge Jones hud played in a good
streak of luck for a month , Billy Owens ,
Hushed with 'Old Otard , ' came baeic to
the faro lay-out from his sumptuous pal
ace of jrin and sin. Walking up to his
chum lie said ho said : 'Judge Jones ,
tills is a mighty mean game with these
hundred-dollar pikers around the board.
How much you got in that big bafo over
yonder ! " M ust $ ; WflOO in tliur , old man , '
opliod the judge , 'and that's just
: iU,000 moro'n you'vo got the band in
your cm w to try and win. ' 'Ah , that 'ri
your little game , is it , old Texas never
tire ? ' exclaimed Hilly Owens , just full
onnupli for n 'llyer. 'I'll just go you
my check on the California bank
for $ U2,000 , cold 'plunkors. " 'Put ' up or
shut up , Billy , sententiously answered
the Texas judge , as his stool gray eyes ,
expanding wide , shone like twor' white
diiimondsT Hilly Owens walked over to
the gamblers' oseretoiro and a well
regulated gambling place is never with
out a table called ' '
-'secretary , whore
pen and ink are ready , and bank
checks , without any particular
bank's name , can always bo found. Tlio
saloon keeper iilledip a cheek on the
bank of California for $ ; tl,000 ! and signed
it up and walked back to Judge Jones.
"Lip to this moment Jones thought
Billy was foolin' . Ilo was mistaken , j
"I'll bet this is the pot (1 ( , 7 , 8 Against
your safe and contents. ' 'It is well , '
bald Jones wilhout a smile , pulling out a
big safe key from his hide pocket , and
slapping it down hard in the pot. 'That
represents my wealth , ' said dealer
Jones. All the other players censed to
watch the gamo. Tlio third turn , as the
key laid hugging the check for $ , ' 1 000 ,
the six , seven , and eight spots came out
of the box. 'Dusted ! by the everlasting
jumping jingo ! ' yelled 'tho Texas judpo ;
but d n my eyes , Bi'ly ' , you are the
very man 1 want to win if I must lose. "
"The bank broke , and till daylight
Billy Owens made it lively for the boys ,
and within a week , the judge , who
closed his bank and wont away , struck
it rich in a placer mine , and opened up
a now game more gorgeous than the
first , in spite of his landlord calling the
turn on his sufo koy. _ "
A Curious Coinuliloiico.
"Speaking of coincidences ' '
, said the
man with the wooden leg , as ho lighted
a half consumed cigar ho had been car
rying in an old handkerchief ; "speaking
of coincidences , gentleman , I can toll
you a very singular thing. 1 was going
up Niagara street , in Buffalo , when I
saw a man with a wooden leg on the
other side of tlio street coining down.
Wo looked across at each ether and
stopped. Says I to inybolf , and bays ho
to himself :
" 'That follow lost his log at the battle
of GoltvHburg , or I'm a sinner ! ' "
"WollV" asked ono of the group.
"Wo looked at each ether across the I
street for a moment , and then says I to
myself and says ho to himself :
" 'I'll strike him for quarter , and nn
old comrade nnd follow-sufl'eror will shell
out. ' "
"Well ? "
"Very curious coincidence , gentlemen
very curious , " continued the man , as
ho pulled away ntliis old stub. " We
mot on the crosswalks.o shook
hands. Wo struck each other for a
quarter , but didn't got it. AVe were both
dealt broke. Neither of us was in the
b.ittlo of ( jottybburg , or any ether but
tle. Then says I to myself , and says ho
to himself :
"Blast his eyes ! but he's traveling on
his Bhapo and tolling a tale of woe , and
ho'b no man for motoasboeiatowith ! 'and
BO wo walked otT. I don't like t'oincl
deuces mybclf ; there's no money in * om. "

We'll also see that the old v oman cooks
