Science vs. I.ui-k.
" "At that time, in Kentucky (said the
Hon. Mr. Knott, M. C), the law was
very strict against what it termed "games
of chance." About a dozen of the boys
were detected playing tlseveD-up" or "old
sledge" for money, and the Grand Jury
found a true bill against them.
Sturgis was retained to defend them
when the case cuuie up, of course. The
more he studied over the matter and
looked into the evidence, the plainer it
was that he must lose a case at ,ast
there was no srettiug arouud that painful
fact. Thnfn hovs had certainly been bet
ting mouev on a game of chance. Kven
public sympathy was aroused in behalf
of turis. J'eople said it . was a pity to
see hiiu mar his successful career with a
big prominent case like this, which must
go against him.
But after several restless nights an in
spired idea flashed upon Sturgis, and he
sprang out of his bed delighted, lie
thought he saw his way through. The
next day he whispered around a little
among his clients and a few friends, and
then when the case came up in court! he
acknowledged the seven-up and the bet
ting, and, as his sole defense, bad I the
astonishing effrontery to put up in j, the
plea that old sledge was not a game of
chance '. There was the broadest sort of
a smile all over the faces of that sophis
ticated audience. The Judge smiled with
the rest. But Sturgis maintained a
countenance whose earnestness was even
severe. The opposite counsel tried to
ridicule him out of his position, and did
not succeed. The Judge jested in a pon
derous judicial way about the thing, but
did not move him. The matter was"be
coming grave. The Judge had lost a
little of his patience, and said the joke
had gone far enough. Jim Sturgis said
he knew ofno joke in the matter his
clients could not be punished for indulg
ing in what some people chose to consid
er a game of chance, until it was proren
that it was a game of chance. Judge
and counsel said that would be an easy
matter, and forthwith called Deacons Job,
Peters, Burke, and Johnson, and Domi
nies Wirt and Migglcs, to testify j and
they unauimously and with strong j feel
ing put down the legal quibble of Stur
gis, by pronouncing that old sledge teas
a ga'me of chance.' i
"What do you call it wor?'v said the
"I call it a game of science I" retorted
Sturgis, "and 1 11 prove it, too .
They saw his little game.
He brought m a cloud of witnesses,
and produced an overwhelming mass of
testimony to show
, game of chance
Instead ot being the simplest case in
world, it had somehow turned' out to be
an excessively knotty one. The Judge
scratched his head over it awhile, and
said there was no way of coming to a de
termination, because just as many men
could be brought into court who would
testify on one side, as could be found to
testify on the other. But he said he was
willing to do the fair thing by all parties,
and would act upon any suggestion Mr.
Sturgis would make for the solution of
Mr. Sturgis was on his feet in a sec
ond. "Impanel a jury of six of each, Luck
vs Science give them candles, and a
couple of decks of cards ; send them into
the jury-room, and just abide by the
There was no disputing the fairness of
the proposition.' The four deacons and
the two dominies were sworn in as the
"chance" jurymen, and six inveterate
old seven-up professors were chosen to
represent the "science" side of the issue.
They retired to the jury room. i
In about two hours, Deacon Peters
sent into court to borrow three dollars
from a friend. Sensation. In about
two hours more, Diminie Miggles sent
into court to borrow a "stake from a
friend. Sensation. During the next
three or four hours, the -'other dominie
and the other deacons sent into court for
small loans. And still the packed audi
ence waited, for it was a prodigious oc-
casion in Bull's Corners, and one in which
every father of a family was necessarily
The rest of the story can be told brief
ly. About daylight the jury came in,
and Deacon Job, the foreman, read the
"We, the jury in the case of the Com
monwealth of Kentucky vs. John
- . Wheeler et al., have carefully considered
. the points of the case, and tested the
merits of the several theories advanced,
and do hereby unanimously decide that
ihe game commonly known as old sledge
or seven-up is eminently a game of sci
ence and not of chance. In demonstras
tioo whereof, it is hereby and herein
stated, iterated, reiterated, set forth, and
made manifest, that,' during the , entire
night, the "chance" men never won a
game or turned a jack, although both
feaU were common and frequent to the
opposition ; and furthermore, in support
of this our verdict, we call the attention
' to the significant fact that the "chance'
men are all busted, and the "science
men have got the money. It is the de
liberate 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 community that takes stock in
"That is the way-that seven-up came
to be particularized in the statute books
of Kentucky as being a game not of
chance but of science, and therefore not
punishable under ; the law,", said Mr.
Knott. - "That verdict is of record, and
holds good to this day." "Mark

The Alton Telegraph of the 5th s iys :
"A lorrible murder was committed Fri
day night at Scottsville, Macoupin coun
ty. The murderer, Jack Straughan,
stabbed James Banning, inflicting a
wound in the abdomen from side to side,
resulting in instant death. The murderer
is a low, heavy-set man about fifty years
old, hair a little gray, chin whiskers, and
sandy complexion. He is still at large.
From his own statement, this is but a
repetition of a similar crime committed
in Kentucky some years since."

A Kausas paper says that some j-ears
ago a man got miffed at something in its
columns, and discontinued his subscrip
tion. Now mark the fearful judgment
which followed this ill advised act :
"From that day, bad luck has followed
him. He suffered an attack of sunstroke,
which almost killed him; his son was bad
ly mangled by machinery; he fooled away
his property iu a bad trade; he was taken
dotvn by a severe spell of sickness, and
while in that condition his wife tried to
poison him, and then rau away with an
other man." Let others take warning, and
by keepiug up" subscriptions avoid a
series of such dreadful mishaps."
