Played Poker In Poorhotue.
' There has been a pronounced stand
taken against gambling in some quar
ters at Portsmouth recently. The fire
and police departments have been or
dered to abandon card playing, and a
fall grown poker game has been broken
up at the infirmary.
It appears that several of the inmates
receive small pensions and others earn
a trifle occasionally for tobacco money
by outside work. They have lately been
losing most of it to some of their fellow
unfortunates who are skilled in the
manipulation of the cards. ; They used
crackers and grains of coffee as chips
and played in the basement of the baud'
ing. A poker game in a poorhouse
might be considered sufficiently unusual
to be worth permitting to proceed as a
curiosity, but Superintendent Mershon
thought not and placed the participants
under discipline. Columbus Dispatch.

1 T Nipped In the Bud.
London, Sept. 16. It is generally
believed here that the police, by the
arrest of Edwin Bell at Glasoow, J.
Wallace and John E. Kearney, at
Rotterdam, and P. J. Tynan (No. 1),
at Boulogne-sur-Mei, France, have
nipped a widespread dynamite plot in
the bud. At Rotterdam the police
captured a number of infernal ma
chines and correspondence which may
result in further arrests. The men ar
rested in Rotterdam were in bed when
arrested. Many infernal machines
were found in their possession, togeth
er with a quantity of correspondence in
cipher. . The correspondence is said to
have contained plans for dynamite out
rages, inoluding 'an attempt upon the

Mistake Made by the Friends of a Miss
San Franoisco, Sepi 15. Matthew
Boohe, a missing dry -goods, salesman,
made his appearanoe today just in time
to interrupt nis own luneral services
and to prevent the interment of a corpse
that had been identified by a soore of
former associates as bis. The body
had been picked up on the beaoh Fri
day morning, and as Roche had been
missing for some days, was out of
work, despondent and given to drink,
his ex-employers and several of his
friends, who oalled at the morgue,
readily identified it as his, and made ar
rangements for his decent burial.
While the oortege was on the way to
the cemetery, Roobe telephoned from
the oity and county hospital to the
coroner's office that he had just read in
the papers an aooount of his death and
that some one had made a mistake.
The funeral was promptly stopped by
he coroner, and the body taken back to
the morgue, where it now awaits iden
tification. - The unknown man is said
to olosely resemble Roohe in figure,
features and age.

McKlnley and Bryan Supporter) Back
Their Beliefs With Coll..
San Franoisco, Sept. 15. The first
big bet of the presidential campaign so
far reoorded was made here last night,
when Charles D. Lane, manager for
Alvina Hayward, and Henry Brat
nober, the mine promoter, affixed their
signatures to notes in which each
pledged to pay the other $25,000 in
oase the candidate of his choice is not
the ohoioe of the people in November.
The parties to the wager have known
one another for many years. Lane was
chairman of the reoent Bilver conven
tion, and is an ardent supporter of W.
J. Bryan and the white metaL Brat
nober is just as enthusiastic a supporter
of Major MoEinley. ,
The two friends were on the point
of taking a "nightcap" at the Grand
hotel bar, when the politioal situation
was broached. In the heat of the de
bate Bratnober offered to bet $100,000
on McEiuley's suooess, and Lane
promptly aocepted the bet, but by mu
tual consent it was subsequently de
clared off. - Just before 'parting, how
ever, Bratnober remarked to his friend
that he guessed Lane had saved him
self $100,000 by not making the bet,
and the latter thereupon offered to bet
any amount on Bryan at even money.
Bratnober named $35,000, the bet was
made, and a couple of minutes later
their respective notes were signed and
deposited in the hotel safe.
Its Success Assured.

It was about ten years ago when
Mr. and Mrs. Jones took that fateful

Mrs. Jones' clothes were thoroughly
soaked before town was reached.
Their was no fire in their hotel room
and she became chilled to the bone be
fore the little blaze, the attendant
started, warmed the atmosphere.
From that time on Mrs. Jones was
an ill woman.
Her trouble well, it was about ev
erything with which human flesh can
be afSioted. She had a strange, queer
feeling in her head, that felt as if sev
eral shot were rolling around loose on
her brain. Pen cannot describe the
torture she suffered. Local doctors
told her she had water on the brain.
A Times reporter called upon Mrs.
Jones, who said;
"Ever since that terrible wetting I
reoeived, np to a year ago, I was an
invalid. I Had terrible neuralgio pains
in the head whioh often went to my
feet and limbs. I was often in suoh
a terrible state that I had to use a
crutch to get around or else slide a
chair before me to move abont the
house. I was very ill for five years,
in spells, and never expected to get
well. It was a blood disease, I guess.
One of the dootors I consulted said I
had clotted blood in my head, and per
haps I did. He could not cure me,
neither could several other dootors I
tried. I also used many' patent medi
cines, but they did me no good.
"My complexion was a perfect
white, and my ears were so transparent
you oould look through them. My
blood was turning to water.
"Look at me now; do I lotk siok?"
The reporter was forced to admit
that he had seldom seen a more perfect
embodiment of health.
With pardonable pride, Mrs. Jones
said, "Dr. . Williams' Pink Pills for
Pale People did it. .
I can go anywhere now, while be
fore I commenced using Dr. . Williams'
remedy I oould not move out of the
house. ' - .
For three years, would you believe
it, I did not even go to church. I was
not always confined to my bed, but
oould not leave the house.
Wherever I go people say, 'Why,
Mrs. Jones, how well you are looking.
How did it happen?' and I always tall
them 'Pink Pills did, it.'
