A DOUBLE '"'DECKER.
The table upon Tvhicli they played
was one of the German double-decker
style, the lower part intended to sup
port glasses. Early in the game the
happy thought occurred to Bell
chambers bt utilizing that lower deck
for a different purpose. Gradually he
accumulated three aces there, but
not without De Spotte's eagle eye
noticing the process.
Bellchambers got a pair of kings
and three worthless, cards. He took
three cards on the draw, but neatly
stowed them away on the lower deck,
and replaced them in his hand with
his accumulated "sure thing." De
Spotte received a pair of queens in
the deal, and in the draw took three
cards. Bellchambers before the draw
had made it "cost a little more money
to come in," and when betting began
he was almost ferocious in his demon
stration jf. confidence in his hand.
The previously sufficient half-dollar
limit disgusted him by its inade
quacy. Dougall and Siccardi said
that as far as they were concerned he
might make it anything he liked, as
they proposed taking j rest De
Spotte did not want to rest just then,
but had no objection to dropping the
limit. .Bellchambers was happy. At
length all the chips were up in the
center of the table, and De Spotte re
sisting sternly Bellchambers' tearful
appeals to be allowed to bet his store
and coming invoice of goods and
other valuables, in a succession of
raises, called. From the time of the
draw Bellchambers had not once
looked at his hand. Why should he,
when he knew so well what was in it?
On the call he turned them over. The
expression on his countenance was
frightful to look at He had only a
pair of kings and seven, nine and ten!
fie Spotte placidly turned his hand
three aces and a pair of queens!
"Where did you get those aces?"
Bellchambers shouted, aghast and
"Under the table where you put
them," De Spotte answered, with an
Dougall and Siccardi yelled in un
hallowed glee, while Bellchambers,
rising in indignation, proclaimed
"I won't play where such unfair ad
vantages are taken," and went forth
into the storm that was calm com
pared with the raging in his anguished
breast Bost on Herald.
The Blaine Boom.
Washington, March 4. The rapid
development of public sentiment dur
ing the past week in favor of the
nomination of Blaine is the princi-
Sal subject of comment among the
Republican politicians. For some
time past opponents of Arthur's re
nomination have complained because
no candidate was put forward upon
whom they could unite. Blaine has
constantly declared himself not a
candidate, and he has carefully ab
stained from a discussion of the sub
ject The growing feeling in favor of
Mb nomination is spontaneous, and
is viewed with considerable alarm by
many Democrats, as the best informed
politicians here think that Blaine and
Logan will have the greatest strength
in the convention, with Edmunds and
Sherman as second choice candidates.
All sorts of wild stories and absurd
rumors are afloat, the principal ones
being that the most prominent back
ers of Logan are secretly for Blaine,
and that Edmunds is simply a stand
New Yobk, March -L Evidence
given before the New York senate
committee the past week concerning
imitation butter shows that the an
nual shipment of the spurious article
from the west to this city is about
1,500,000 pounds. Of thirty samples
of alleged butter collected at random
from city grocers twenty wera imita
tion. Butterine sells from 20 to 45
cents per pound, and oleomargarine
fxdm 20 to 30 oents. Often the samo
article is sold at varying prices to suit
the character of the customer, but
always as pure oreamery butter.
What a vast country is India, and
for the most part a sealed volume to
all the outside world. Its magnitude
is a mystery to most persons, and its
population almost incomprehensible
It contains some 50,000,000 more peo
ple'than all Europe west of the Vis
tula. It has sixty-two cities with a
population of more than 50,000 people
each, and twenty-two cities with more
than 100,000 inhabitants. Below the
limit of 50,000 the towns become
mucn more numerous, ana there are
.hundreds with populations below
20,000. The majority of the latter
are quite unknown to Europeans, an
active magistrate or two excepted;
and there is no book in English
which gives the slightest account of
their, organization, or of the people
in them. Yet many of them have
flourishing families which think
themselves noble, and have long ped
iyrees and stirring tales to relate.
Geo. Francis Train's lunacy has as
sumed a violent form. He has vault
ed into journalism, and in the wildest
rhetoric lunges at the New York edi-torsr'calling-them
"miscreants," "feeble carrion," goose
fleshed, fevered lepers and paralyzed
inJbeciles," "emaciated, horned idiots,
packed terriers, gliding ghouls," "cap
and knee slaves, vapors, minute jacks,
naked guUs -dishcloth harbingers of
pifiQential visits,'- "carbuncle-backed
toads, dove-feathered hags and canvas
backed hellions," and calls on them to
pale before'' him. We didn't know
-the New York editors were as bad as
that, but Train probably knows them
better than we do.
Mr. F. W. Sullivan, 15 W. 33d St
New Yiy;k City, says that for six years
he has suffered with rheumatism, and
for .weeks was unable to get about or
feed himself. Finally he tried the

The Militia Appropriation BUI.
Washington, March 4. Many arpy
officers in the city are of the opinion
that, the bill passed last week by the
senate, increasing the annual appro
priation for the national guard for the
several states of the Union from
$200,000 to SGO0,0O0 a year will go
through the house beyond doubt,
since it met with so little opposition
in the senate. This sum is to be dis
tributed among states in proportion
to the actual number of active militia
men, and will, it is thought have the
effect of creating a militia many
times better than the one in
existence. The distribution of arms
to state militia, made under the act
of 1808, is three-quarters of a cent
ury old, there having been no legisla
tion on the subject of organization
since the states have effected and
maintained their militia by dint of
untired labor. It seemed to those at
the head of them that their military
existence was a matter of little or no
consequence to the government, and
Adjutant-General Drumm, U. S. A,
who Jibs made an effort to open com
munication with state military organ
izations, and iiave them recognized
by the war department, reports very
poor success. The increase of the
appropriation will, it is believed, en
courage the several organizations, as
suring them that they are recognized
by congress, and will aid them very
materially in keeping their existence.
Some think it will have the effect of
increasing membership so that it will
be found necessary to make it n mill
ion a vear.
Idaho's New Governor.
Philadelphia, March 4. Judge
Bunn, Idaho's new governor, was yes
terday seen by a Press reporter, clad
in faultlessly fitting attire, a "Tedero"
hat on his" light locks. With his
boyish face and slim though well knit
frame, he did not appear as though
he was intended to tread the rugged
hills of Idaho.
"Why, they'll call you the dude
governor," said one of his friends.
"Well, you bet your life that before
thirty days they'll find I'm governor.
A governor should govern. That is
what they want mo for. I suppose,
and that's what I'll do. 'I don't know

Judge Bunn served during the war
in the Seventy-second Pennsylvania,
and was wounded.
After Many Days.
Among the earliest pioneers of this
state was one W. W. Baymond, a
missionary who afterward was ap-,
pointed sub Indian agent. His offi
cial bond in the sum of $l',000 was j
signed by Joseph Holman and H. W.
Wilson, and w,is approved by George
H. Williams, chief justice Oregon ter
ritory, on the 23d of July, 1853. Just
how Mr. Raymond administered the
affairs of his agency is not known,
but it is certain that the greater part
of his Indians are gone, and that Mr.
Jtvaymona nas long since passed over .
to the other side and has been fol
lowed by Mr. Holman. And now at
this late date some onorgetio member
of the Indian department, or some
other department, has discovered that
Mr. .Raymond is indebted to the Unit
ed States in the sum of $50,310, and
IT. S. District Attorney Wratson has
been instructed to commence suit
against the principal and his bonds
men to recover that amount It is
certain that no one hurried in figur-.
ing up the indebtedness of Ba3'mond,
and as the bondsmen are liable only
to the amount of their bond, it is
likely to be some time before the ac-'
count is squared. Oregonian. ,
