veterans. The younger men led him on.
In fact, they always did when oppor
tunity offered, for they were sure of a
good story. Tbe subject was draw poker,
and the veteran said:
"Yes, I've been in mnio putty stiff

from Portsmouth, and a liquor man
from Maysvillo and DM In tho game. It
was down at tho Spt-noer House.
"I can't tell you how we got mixed
in the game, for that would spoil the

looked pcarter than ever. I knowed
there was troublo coming. Every feller
raised, and when it got around to tbe
starter ho saw all of 'em and raised
with about half his pile. Never mind
tt"? amounts. Hundred dollar bills wero
laying around on thut tuble like whito
chips now, only more plenty, and every
man in tho crowd had his roll in his
insido pocket besides. And before it
went very far tin y camo out and eomo
bigger bills than centuries got oommou,
too, but every one of tho crowd seemed
to think it v.is all bis when the show

An ordinary service to munkind i
usually paid for at current rates In legal
tender. An extraordinary service, not
Involving the element of heroism, Is re
warded by both legal tender and more
or loss fame. The highest of all sorvloes,
rendered at tho risk of llfo, is supposed
to receive its full compensation In glory,
uuacoouipauled by more sordid consid
erations. If, however, tbo hero of tbo
service last mentioned should not be
contented with his meed of glory, bnt
should demand more substantial reward,
he may receive it indeed, but at a large
discount from tho other (and in sentl
mental estimation more valuable) con
sideration. Unlike tho butcher, tho baker and
the candlestick maker, who receive
their qnld pro quo without a thought
of humiliation, either lu their own
minds or yours, tho man who saves
your life at tho risk of his own Is looked
upon as almost if not qulto disgracing
