VV murmured tha faro dealer,
reflectively, u a thin pock-marked
man passed tha corner of Broadway
and Thirty-eighth atreet.

"And now yon throw him down?"
"Kot on your life." ' -
"Say," aald the raoa man, "d'y artr

"Well, Ifa a qntvr itory, and It floae
to ahow what a freaky thing luck la.
We couldn't ever trot double. If Hen
nessy la flying high, I'm cold broke,
an' if I'm winner, Ilenncssy't on tha
pork. Besides, he could never etay
aquare with a friend nohow."
"Well, how about It?" aaked the
"It nil lifter the season eloaed at
Brighton Ileaoh In '87. Henneaay had
been up against It for four lung,
warm, weary montha. He'd been
playiu' tverylbln' In the buaineaa
from favorite to 100 to 1 ahota, an'
he couldn't win breakfaat money.
I'd been foll'ln' tho western circuit
11 aummer au' had nursed up quite
a wad, an' when I come back to New
Tork the first man I run againat ia
Henneaay. He was eomln' out of
Blxth avenue beanery, where they aell
coffee for two cents e oup, an' say, if
ever any man looked like a bad nickel,
It was Hennessy. I'd seen him when ho
was rollln' high out In California,
an' I had a few drinks with him then,
an' some guy had told me that Hen
neaay was a man 'at never stood by
his friends. Hut say, I was sorry to
Me a man down on his lurk, an' I aaya
to myself, I'll help him to take
brace. So I flta him out from feet to
finish, an' then I promises him W a
day for two weeks to play the ponlee
me layln' off awhile to real.
"Well, after a few days Henneaay
begins to do business again, and in
side of a month had nursed together
a little wad of about three hundred
" 'Now,' aaya J, 'we're off to New Or
leans.' "An' we went an' started Into the
game the next day. Hut Henneesy's
luck had changed again, and there
wasn't anything he could win. Neith
er of us could mnke It out. Uennrasy
said he's gone into the theater, with
hia umbrella up, an' I gueas p'rhapa
that's what it was, but anyway, be
whs a dead one from that on, and in
two days he didn't have hut $.W In the
world. Then I told him to stick to
me and follow my plays, and ha did,
and In two days I had lost $1,700 and
all of Heunvssy'a $50 was gone. So I
gave Ilenneasy $1(1 to start fresh on
and told him to lay his own money
an' keep away from me. So he did
and lost every nickel of it before
"Well, It waa up to me to take care
of him. So he goes off and geta a
little more somewhere, and overy
mnrnln' bo's 'round to my room for
break fast money and I'm glvln' hlin
in to feed himself and play with.
That kept up the whole winter
through, me giriu' him IS every day,
besides drlnka an" clgnra, an' Inumlry
billa, and every now and then a ten
ner to get bis stuff out that he'd
hocked. Hut I guess It waa luck In
me, because 1 lived high every min
ute of the time and quit the game
$3,300 better than when Ilenneasy and
me started south.
"I guess Hennessy thought the
same thing, 'cause he cornea 'round
one morning and snys If I'll slake him
to a little roll he'll quit mo and try
his lurk on the western circuit. Ho I
gave li I m $5iio and he started for Chi
cago. It waau't long before we heard
of his luck, and my five hundred be
gins to come back.
"Good? Why things just swam his
way. I waa glad of It. although I
wasn't doing so well myself. As llcn
nraey's stock went up mine started
to slump, and pretty soou I was In
the hole up to my neck. When the
QMwting elueed it left me stone broke,
with only one suit of clothee left and

of Ntuth avenue and Thirty second

borrow here and there, but 1 couldn't
get enough ahead to make any kind of
play, and I Imuran to think If thlnga
dfclu't come my vay I'd hava to quit
the game ami go to work."
"Hey, wouldn't that bump you?"
aid the faro man.

Say, tt made me hungry Just to look
at hia mug, and he was wearin' a hot
sllkex an' a long coat and a diamond
lamp fit to knock an eye out of the
ptinoe of Wales, and, any, when t saw
Henneaay that way I thought 11 waa
like flndbi' mine. There waa ready
money all over him.
"An', of course, he staked you good

"Did I say that Ilenneiiay bod

maybe It waa two of them and maybe
It waa three. Anyway, Henneaay had
a little skste on. It waan't enough to
excuse him and It waa Just enough
to make mean man nasty.
" Hello, Ilennessy, says L
'Hello,' ssys Hennessy.
"And t saw then and there that my
gold mine was a frost. Hennessy waa
gtvln' me the go-by. But I was too
hard up to be haughty, so I stops him
"Say, Hennessy,' aays I, 'are you
gotn' to walk past a man like that?

of an ugly grin, 1 know you well

" "Not particle,' says Hennessy,
'you went broke when I quit you, be
cause I was your mascot. You stole
my luck, aud I figure that you owe
me about $5,000. The minute I left
you things came my way.'
"Well, I tried to laugh. 'Why, Hen
neaay, old man,' snys I, 'you're string
In' me. D'ye take me for a hoodoo 7
"That's what I do,' he says, 'the
worst hoodoo this side of the Kocky
"'Well, ay, Hennessy,' snys I,
'stake me for a hundred and let It
go at that?'
" 'Not nickel,' aays Hennessy.
'You got my luck onoc, but you don't
get It again, see!'
"Then he turned bsrk Into the cafe,
and I could see him through the win
dow nrdvring new quart."
"Wouldn't that bump youl" eold the
faro man. t
"Say, Isn't luck about the queerest
thing on earth?" continued the race
man philosophically. "Here was Hen
nessy a tramp only a year before, when
I waa a high rider. Now, I'm on my
uppers, and llennessy'a on the wave,
and yet at that very minute my luck
was on the turn. I walkril around the
corner where I could curie llcum-ssi
on the quiet and there in a little hea

something shining. I picked It up. It
was a five-dollar gold piece, and then

'Sure," said the faro man.
'Say, it needed lot of nerve to lay
