thinks is . an alarming condition of
affairs, lor he ha a great amount of
syinjiathy for old bachelors. Then,
Klit-rill Hus-ell feels a bit lonesouis,
with not a single priHOuer in the
comity jail. Ho thinks that some
body ouhut to be apprehendi d and put
in that nice bastile, else it will get
rusty ami he unnatural. Then be it
said to the credit of Josephine county,
there was not a single insane case in
' the coiuitv passed upon by the au
thorities during the entire month of
, Hfptember. The average lias kbeen
about one each month, which was not
; bail for a county of this size, tin in
1 Hrptember even the average was not
1 kept up. but thero is at least one busy
' man at the courthouse and that is
j deputy SheiifT Smith, who is still
1 taking in money paid by tardy tax
payers. He finds that the county
has collected about fSO.OOO thus far
and that this year will probably come
I up a bit bettor than is usually the
lease. However, it looks now as
though several taxpayers, all over
j the count? would have ti py extra
entits as they are going to per n it
their taxes to go delinquent.

That evening M.i'-an. Sterling and two
others whom Sterling had asked to be
present opened the game on the flat
boat. The owner of the o'iittit and two
assistants were of the party, making
seven in all. They had played fin hour
or more when a jackpot was opened,
and the pile on the table prew enor
mously. Suddenly Ste,"ling chipped one
hand down on the money ami whipped
out n gun with the other. At the
same moment Marau and his two
friends drew their weapons and cov
ered the three professionals. The coup
was effected so quickly that not one of
the latter was able to draw.
'Tut jo' arms on the table," ordered
Sterling, raking olT the money into his
lint. Then, setting the hat on n chair,
lie went to the owner of the bont nnd
began to search him.
"Il-m!" he remarked, drawing sev
eral aces held by n clasp attached to
n rubber cord In his sleeve. "A cheap
device, but good enough to fool usses
with." Then, going to the next man.
he took a lack of cards from his pock
et, held them up to the light and
"Marks big enough to seei In the
dark. All the court cards nre plain
on the hack as on the face."
After going through the three men
and Ilnding evidence of fraud on nil.
he politely asked the owner for the
key of the safe. The man, having n
pistol muzzle within a few Inches of
his ear, complied. Sterling opened the
safe and counted out nil amount eipinl
to Jin ran s losses and handed It to
him. Then ln paid what losses the
others h id made from the inonev in
the hat. He was himself n winner.
and this amount he took from his pock
et and tossed It on the table.
When the party left the boat thev
cut the cable, and It floated down wiili
the current. Its profits and losses at
Its last landing place had been nil.
jfaran left the next day for Baton
Iiouge and was married soon after his
arrival. Hud It not been for Sterling's
lutcrfereine he might have become n
professional gambler himself.
