NOT A GAME OF CHANCE.
The Jury Decided That 8even-up Wat

or old sledge. Some Keutuvky Isiys
were arrested for playing this game
under the usual charge of playing a
game of chauce. When they were
brought before the Judge their lawyer
claimed that this game was ut a
game of chance, but was a game of
science. The court, puzzled, asked for
suggestion, and the lawyer declared
that If a Jury of sis gamblers well ac
quainted with the game lu a scientific
way and six deacons be Impaneled
with puck of cards their decision
ought to be determinative. So the sto
"There was no disputing the fairness
of the proposition. Four deacons and
the two dominies were sworn in as
the 'chance' Jurymen, and six Inveter
ate old seven-up professors were
chosen to represeut the 'science' side
of the issue. They retired to the Jury

sent Into court to borrow J3 from a
friend. In about two hours more
Dominie Mlggles sent Into court to
borrow a 'stake' from a frleud. Pur-

dominie and the other deacons sent
Into court for small loans.
"The rest of tho story can be told
briefly. About daylight the Jury came
In. aud Ieaeon Job. the foreman, read
the following verdict:
' 'H, the Jury In the case of the
commonwealth of Kentucky versus
John Wheeler et al., have carefully
considered the points of the case and
tested the merits of the several theo
ries advanced and do hereby unani
mously decide that the game common
ly known as old sledge, or seven-up.
Is eminently a game of science and
! not of chance. In demonstration
I whereof it Is hereby and herein stated,
I iterated, reiterated, set forth and
I made manifest that during the entire
I night the "chance" men never won a
J game or turned a Jack, although both
j feats were common and frequent to
the opposition, and furthermore In

tentlon to the significant fact that the
"chanre" men are all broke and the
"science" men have got the money.
It Is the deliberate opinion of this Jury
that the "chance" theory concerning
seven-up Is a pernicious doctrine and
calculated to inflict untold suffering
and pecuniary loss upon any commu
nity that takes stock in it'"

I The Grip This Dreadful Disease Takes
i Upon Its Victim.
! The vourse of the dreadful disease,
I sleeping sickness, Is an extremely slow
one. me nrst stage is saia 10 mm a
year or more, and the cause of the dis
ease may be in the blood long before
any symptoms whatever present them
selves. The patient has occasional
fever; Indeed, a disease hitherto called
Gambia fever has recently been recog
nized as the first stage of sleeping
slckuess. it is suld that tbe swelling
of the lymphatic glands of the neck is
a characteristic early symptom. This
was known In 1S03 to Dr. Wlnterbot
tom. who states that slave traders,
recognizing the symptom of a fatal
disease, would not buy slaves who had
this glandular enlargement. The pa
tient feels well and strong and Is able
to go about his usual occupations.
The second stage Is Indicated by a
distinct changw in the appearance of
the patient. His expression grows
heavy and dull; he becomes u pathetic,
lies around a great deal and cannot
exert himself. With the progress of
tbe disease these symptoms become
more marked; walking and speech be
come difficult aud finally Impossible.
During the last week the sufferer lies
In a state of complete coma, from
which tbe Illness derives Its name.
Often during the second stage of tbe
disease the brain becomes affected,
and some of tbe patients try to run
away Into tbe forests or swamps,
where they die of exposure or starva
tion. To prevent this tbe relatives of
a sufferer frequently chain blm down
until the time comes when he can no
longer move. McClure's MagMlne.
To the discriminating Housewife:
We have installed some new machinery and
will now make the tohiicjf, tightest
bread of any flour on Hood River market
if handled rightly. It does not require as
stiff working as others. Next time ask
your grocer for CUPID and if he will not
furnish it, trade with someone who will.
