"One of the wealthiest men In my town
linui't got a cent to his name , " said George
Wltherby of Unite , Mont. , In a liotel cafe In
\Ynshlniton ; a few night * ngo.
The men In the party eyed Mr. Wlttaorby.
"Fad , I assure you , " ho wont on. "The
man has the use of the money , ho uses It In
lin ! tig operations lust as freely as It It be
longed to him , and ho la rated A No. 1 for
the whoc ! pile hy the commercial agencies.
Moreover , he made every dollar of the money
himself , All the same , ho can't call a sou-
martin In of It hi * own. Ho told me him-
nolf tcily the other day ( hat ho didn't have
the | > rico of a nccktlo In cash belonged
to him , and that If he happened to be called
upon to piy In. coin of his own for the half-
BollnB of lilfl show , ho'd probably have tote
to baicfoot , "
Some of the men around the table , relates
n correspondent of the New York Sun , were
DPRlnnliiK to regard Mr.Vlthcrby with
tnrnlfcstly distrustful looks , but he went on :
" 1 guess about a million Is the figure this
man has accumulated and has got the use of ,
although he doesn't now own any of It any
moro than you fellows do. It belongs to his
wife. No , ho didn't transfer It to her In
order to avoid the piyment of debts , or any
thing of the tort. He's a dcad-siuaro man.
end Ms word has always been ns good as
his bond. And ho didn't mnrry a wealthy
woman , cither , for , as I've already said , ho
earned every peseta of the pile himself. It
Is Dimply this : During the Itot four years
thU man has been playing poker with his
wife , anil she has been cluanlng him out
from the go-off. She broke him In less than
two yoirs after they started the game , and
BIO ! has kept him flat broke ever since. Ho
hasa't got Ifi cents worth of stock or bondn
In 'tho world ; he's got no personal property
except his clothes and his watch and chain
his wlfo has won all 'the rest of his Jewelry ,
though she lets him wear It ; he dcesn t row
jiotsesii so much ns nn 8x10 rough-board
shack nut at the hundreds of thousands of
dollars worth of real estate that used to
Etnml In his mine. Ills wlfo ban got It all.
Yet they are the happiest couple In thu
northwest , go everywhere together , and arc
genuine chuma and swccthcarta It Is a
( | iicer bus'ners. 1M nu'mlt , and I'll have to
glvo you tiio uetalls before you'll be able to
understand It.
"I'll to about four yenra ego , as most of
you probably know , nutto was probably thu
warmest gambling town 'In this country.
Them wcro lulf a dozen games on every
block and they weren't smothered up on the
1op floors , cither , nor perforated with pcnp-
Jioles with a house man at every hole to
Elzo up the proper people or the dangerous
ones t'jat ' tinkled for admittance. They were
run full blast on the ground floors , and the
clatter of the chips and the rattling of the
wheel marbles were Just as common sounds
In the cars of pedestrians on the main streets
of IJutte as the mom of the tamalu man la
ontho streets of San Francisco. All of the
join's were called clubs , and there was a
very wldo gamut between the best and the
worst of them.
"At faro bank you could get anything you
wanted In Ilutte , from two-bit limit to no
limit at all , and all the rest of the games ,
from mustang to fly lee and stud poker ,
worn run on the same scale to accommodate
the purstM of both punters and performers.
There was no municipal supervision of the
games at all. The only exaction was that
every layout should be run strictly on the
level , anl this was not a municipal exac
tion , but was a rule that proprietors of the
big Institutions took 'In hand and enforced.
If thu manager of a punting game pot caught
In the moBt venial sort of crooked work , or
even an attempt at crooked work , his place
would bo closed up In jig tlmo by thu chlel
of police , and no explanation would be given
why this was done. But the big bank pro-
prlotom would know why it was done.
"Well , this wealthy man of Uutte , now
without a cent of his own , was one of the
mcst profitable patrons of the high-class
iamcs until the reform administra
tion came along , about four years
ago and swept about eight out ol
ten bankti out of existence and forccil
the surviving Institutions , the leading once
6t the town , to carry on business strictly on
tbo iiulct. He made most of his money In
working Montana's gem fields , and ho was a
shruwd Investor ami a rattling good 'business
jnau. Hut he was one of those follows the
] lko of whom you occasionally run across
with an Irresistible mania for gambling In all
Its forms , yet altogether locking In the
temperament , skill and experience required
tor succccrful gambling. Ho went against
oil the heavy games that were running In
Bntto under the old regime , and he got nil
bard by nearly all of them. Ho lacked the
will power to lot the tables alone , however
And after n whllo his steady louses began to
prey on his nerves and to Injure his health.
Although he never encroached upon hlo
capital , ho sloughed away the major portion
of his very large Income on the green cloth
and If the reform administration hadn'i
happened around just about when it dh
there's ivo telling how far ho might have
gone. Although he kept at It for a fo\v weeks
after the beginning of the reform he was
too upright to to able to stand for sneaking
up back stairs , to ho Inspected through a
peephole by hangers-on for faro hells. Hut
his wife wan chiefly instrumental In his giv
ing the banks the complete go-by.
"Ho had gone hack to New Hampshire and
man-led the nweethcart of his boyhood after
liu began to pile up money In ' .Montana. Ho
got a prize , too , and he knew it , and ho did
everything In the world for her but the one
( hint ; that t > ho most wanted him to do , and
( hat was to iiult gambling.
" 'After a whllo I'll let the banks go ,
fTlminy. ' ho'd say to Jier. 'I want to give
' 0111 one good , hard welt , and get at Icasl
Komo of It back , and then you and I'll spend
our evenings playing checkers and you won'l
.worry any more. '
"Well , you all know how It goes when a
fellow stacks up against another man's game
for the iiurprao of getting his money back ,
The player plays with desperation and Im
becility , unil he gets worse mired all the
time. That was what was happening to this
man when hH wlfo got Into the game. Site
/was / and Is a pretty level-headed and accom
plished woman and clever enough to keep
thu smartest men on their mettle on any
ubjcct. ,
" 'Tom , ' Ettld she to her husband very
early ono morning when ho reached home
" with a worried look on his face , 'you know
"I'm ' no Mrs. Caudlo and that I haven't sat
up to lecture you. You've been at the bank ,
haven't you , Tom1
'Tom owned up ,
" 'And you look ta If you were Jilt pretty
bard. I suppose you wcro ? '
" 'Middling hard,1 says Tom ,
" 'Well , now , ' fho went on , 'I'vo been
hearing today that the llrst-rato man don't

compelled to go about It In a skulking kind
of way , Anil , otter having had the honor of

I was a llttlu girl In short frocks , < it Is clear

"Tom smoked his cigar and kept his mouth
" 'Tom , ' Mrs , Tom went on. 'I believe that
you Just naturally love to gamble ; that you

"Tom ( licked the aelies from his cigar In

Jog about and I mean every word I say.

" 'Tlmmy you're lonti y , % Bay Tom.
" 'No. I'm not , either. ' replied Mrs , Trm.
'Vnu know I'VP a lot of innney In the
bank that I really IIAVS no use for. You
gavn It In me flat , ami It's rrally and truly
inliio. Isn't It ? Well , thiii , too. am I not
entitled to a one-third Interest In everything
you hive ? I've nlways understood It that
way. All right. I'll play the money I've
Already got and my one-third Interest in
your estate. You enn advance mo Install
ments on It. Then , Tom , I'll 'bust ' you'
Isn't that they call It ? '
" 'Well , Tlmmy , ' said Tom. 'I'll RO you. '
" 'It was such a novel sort of preposition , '
he said to me afterward , 'nnd It was no
nslmiatlngly put , besides , tl'at I just couldn't
tiolp but agrco to It then and there , and
to sUnd for It afterward. '
Well , this couple started their two-
lianded panic of draw on the very next night ,
and Tom told me that from the very go-on
lie never had so much fun playing card a In
his life. Not that his wife didn't know the
game. He had taught her the game of poker
soon after they wcro married , and on hla
evenings at home they had often played a
quarter limit game for the fun of the thing.
Hut It was so queer to bo playing with his
wlfo for really Immense stakes , ns they did
In nil eatnestneBs play when the game waa
well under way , that this Dutto man relished
the play enormously. Ho quit the faro banks
altogether , and devoted all of his apart ! time
to HIP attempt to brat his wlfp.
" 'If I succeed In breaking her , ' he said to
romc of us after the nm few weeks , 'of
course I'll hand back to her nil of the deeds
nnd securities constituting her one-third that
she has solemnly made over to me. Hut she
doesn't know that I will , and Is playing her
keeps , nnd so my fun Is not diminished a
particle. '
"Ho Mnn found that his attempts to boat
his wife's game nnJ her luclc were not pan
ning out. The whole truth of the matter Is
that she wns n better poker player than he ,
but what man would over own. up , even to
himself , that hla wife could beat him at the
game of draw or any other kind of a game of
cards ? In the first place , she was about 100
per cent more cool-headed than he ; In the
place , she hail a keneer appreciation
of the value of hands ; In the third place ,
she was a bluffer ; and In the fourth place ,
she knew her husband llko a book , nnd could
figure down pat from the expression of his
face just what his handa were worth. When
you throw Ir. with all of these advantages
the natural Intuition of a woman , and the
Instinctive 'hunch' she has to do the right
thing Just nt the right tlmo , you can per
ceive that this man I nm tolling you about
didn't have such a show as he thought ho
luil when ho talked to his friends about re
storing nil of his winnings to his wife nt the
"The little woman wns not loser a dollar
from the very first night they started play.
.VI the end of n month , as Tom told me hlm-
rclf. It scorned to bo no longer n question as
to which of the two would come out uhcad
on a night's play , but simply a question ns to
how much he would lose. At the end of olx
months his wlfo hnd $200,000 , worth of his
securities In her comiurtment of their safe
deposit vault.
" ' ' about this tlmo.
'Lose ? said Tom to me
'Holy smoke , she doesn't know how to lose !
She'll havemo a pauper before I know
whore I am. And bluff ! Say , she bluffs me
out of my own jackpots on eight or ten high
when there are thousands of dollars In the
pot. Then when I conclude to put a stop to
this binning and raise her up to the cell-
Ing by betting whole slathers of money on
really good hands I happen to hold , she
holds fours or a straight Hush. There's no
way I know of to got a line on the way a
woman plays poker ; but she's got me HO
deep in the hole now that I've got to bee the
game through. '
"Well , nt the end of n year this nervy
Httlo woman had not only captured all that
jortlon of her husband's Income that ha.l
forrr.erly helped to enrich the green cloth
men of Dutte , but she had gathered In about
an oven halt of bis capital. * H was all his
to manipulate and do business with , ns I've
told you ; but it was in her name. It took
her another year to break him. but she mndo
a mighty slick job oil It nt the end. It was
almost exactly two years to n day after they
had started the game when the Inevitable
night cimo on which this IJutte man had to
sail the sponge nnd acknowledge that ho
wns nil up. Each of them had on a corner
of the table a list of securities , stocks ,
bonds and other properties , with the money
values noted , that they Individually owned ,
and they hnd devised n system of checking
this list oir with a pencil as the securities
were wagered In the pi-egress of the play.
Then at the end of each week they would
have a settling day , and on these settling
days , nlno times out of ten , the securities
and real estate deeds would bo transferred
wholesale from the husband's to the wife's
side of the safe deposit vault. On the night
that she broke him flat she had been bluff
ing so persistently that he concluded he
would call a halt to that sort of thing as
soon as ho got a good hand. His opportunity
arrived when ho gave himself thrco Jacks
and then another Jack on the draw. Ills
list of securities beside him was pretty
well checked off by this time , but ho thought
ho had a. good enough hand to do n double
or quits turn , and so , when ho saw that his
wlfo was Inclined to raise him In the bet
ting , ho Just fired the whole list In the mld-
dlo of the table.
" -If I haven't got you beaten this time ,
Tlmmy , ' ho said , 'I might as well go broke. '
" 'Well , that won't break you. you know,1
she replied , sweetly. 'You've sot your diamonds
mends yet. haven't you ? '
" 'Oh , I'm too strong this tlmo to let you
bluff mo out that way , Tlmmy , ' said ho.
'It you have the audacity to think you've
got m < > beaten this tlmo and will stand for
Hid raleo hy checking off an equal value on
that little list of yours over there , I will
put Into the pot everything I own In the
world except my duds rrid this watch and
chain that was given to me nt home when I
was u boy. '
" 'And the value of what you've got left ?
she Inquired , cool as a cucumber.
" 'Well , ' said Tom , 'I guess my rings nnd
pins are worth $10,000. and you can ap
praise my wardrobe at about $1,000. '
"Tholittle woman calmly took the pencil
nnd checked off $11,000 worth of securities
on her list. - > '
" 'I call you , ' said ohe.
"Tom smiled as ho spread out his hand.
" 'Too bad. Tlmmy , ' ho said. 'Four Jacks. '
" 'Too bsd , Tommy , ' said nho , spreading
out her hand. 'Four queens , ' "
