From tine to time throughout the
world gambling among women baa
flourished and declined. The page of
history tell orer and orer again the
tory of great women gambler.

There aeems to be something In the
blood of French women that make
them gambler of a high order. Mme.
44 Montecpaa won so much at basset
, her farortte-game, that Louis IV. was
alighted and borrowed some of ber
winnings, but ah lost a great deal at
times, and her play grew so furious
that in 1682 Louis abolished the game.
It la recorded of madame that she. one
night while the king looked on at play.
. risked a sum equal to 40,000 on a sin
gle card and that the king grumbled
when no one could be found to cover
'the bet But! madame also lct, one
"New Year night. 700.0X crowna at
'boca and on antty'r night almost
200,000 at the name game.
Mme. du Barry was the most famous
woman gambler of the time of Louis
'. XVv'but with her It was only a pas
time. But that other farorite. Mme. de
Pompadour, went In with the sole ob
ject of winning. If she could. It la re
corded that ber 'winnings were enor
mous and that In a single night she
cased the pocket of the king of 25,000
kmia d or.
Queen Marie Antoinette, according to
history, was a gambler who liked to be
surrounded by gamblers. Faro was the
popular game, but the stakes got to be
so great that many a nobleman had his
entire estate wiped out In a single
, night Scandal rose high, and the game J
was forbidden, nevertheless, in a abort
lime It waa being carried on again not
only in the apartments of the queen,
lut at the bouse of the Princess de
Lambaile. At first the queen and tho
who desired to play with her went to
tfiat anaptniMti fit frnn HnAmon
whose bouse Is credited with hiring
been the scene of the highest continued
play of any in France. But matter got
so bad before the end came that noble
men would no longer play with the
queen, and she admitted to ber table
many common gamblers. Then the
scandal broke in full force, for some
were caught cheating, and one wa
ren arrested for picking a pocket.
Possibly the mont famous woman
gambler of Englinh history was Nell
Gwynn, the actress who was so great
a favorite with diaries II. In that
reign the manners were much the same
a they were at the French court. Nell
Gwynn lost 5.000 to her- rival, tht
Duchess of Cleveland, and In one year
Jort upward of 00,ooo, which the king
paid. There had never been known mo
much gambling among women as wa
carried on In that reign. After the
Duchess of Mazarln. niece of the cardi
nal, had lost 1,000,000 the died in ab
The acknowledged queen of Ameri
ean women gain biers was Lonna I'a
oulta, who was born In Texas about
1850; but early went into Mexico to
rule over outlaws and cowboys. The
little Lonna was scarcely twelve years
f age when nbe fell In with an old
time gambler named Qtialetor. who
tanght ber every trick known to the
gambler's art. She made her first ap
pearance In Paso del Nrte. Phe was
only a child, and the rough gamblers
laughed nt her.
Iiut they soon found that they were
so match for her, and that even her
teacher, Qualetor, whs a tenderfoot
eompared with the child. With the
yarning years Lonna Taqnlta grew to
s a beautiful woman. Her hair waa
as black as night, she had eyes that
confounded those of the gamblers who
played with her and a voice as sweet
and silvery as a bell. Fbe was aa
handsome a woman as one could wiah
to see, but with heart of Ice and nerves
f Iron. Her small white hands could
manipulate the cards with a skill that
defied the watchfulness of the keenest
There were many people who thought
it waa merely luck that followed her,
but the luck kept up too long, and the
gamblers who knew a few tricks them
selves understood that It was "art."
Btlll, no one was ever known to catch
her cheating. Before she was twenty
Lonna ratjulta was In New Mexico
leading a gang of the worst characters
f the sown west. r
Her death occurred in 1S75. and was
tragic. Borne lawless acts had been
tommltted.bysJi .bods ofxgreawrs. and
search was made for them. Lonna
Paouita was found to I their lender
ntf wan canght. She only Innghed
when she was taken, and proposed that
a game of ronlK t-e played to
whether she should act fre or kill her
self. This waa agreed to, and one of
tba party, a gambler known the eoun
try around, waa selected. T1 woman

ly tin to understand thla when Lonna
Paaulta drew a knife from her belt
and plunged It Into ber heart.
The women of today, although they
doubtless gamble aa heavily aa In other
times. Incline more to speculation In
stocks. The new woman will go on
gambling, but appearances show that
ah caret a great deal more for tba
money there la In It than she doe for
the notoriety of being a gambler. Ur
