The season w a s ear ly June. The gardens were sw e e t w ith a thousand odors and silvery w ith moonlight, but in the casino there were glaring lights and a heat that seemed to strike upon the top o f one’s head ami the scents that are bad counterfeits of flowers. A young gentleman named Wllmot, whom I had met in Paris, had (lined with mo at the hotel, and w e had then strolled across to the place where vis itors are expected to spend their mon ey in the purchase of nervous prostra tion. I had never visited this temple of absurdity before, but Wllmot, who had spent some years abroad, had been there often—much oftoner, in fact, than any real friend of his would have wished. On this occasion be lost about 20 louis without winning a bet. “ Well, w e ll!” he cried. “ I ’m not in luck tonight. A ren’t you going to play?” I confessed that I could see nothing in the sport. I had tried it elsewhere and had found, as one who lacks, the I WAS INTERESTED IN TWO WOMEN WHO SAT SIDE BY SIDE. instinct alw a y s w ill, that gam b ling is the most disappointing o f the polite vices. A ll the seats a t the table w e re occu pied, but there w a s no great crowd about. T w o or three men w e re dodg ing here and there to lay their bets, but w e had room to spare at the end o f the board, w h e re w e remained aw h ile to w a tch the faces o f the play ers. There w e re no great gains or losses. I w a s interested principally in tw o w o men who sat side by side, one o f them m ildly successful, the other steadily losing. It w a s am u sing to observe that the wom an who lost w a s angry with the wom an who won and not w ith the croupier who sw e p t in her money nor w ith herself for being so foolish as to play. Am o n g those w h o lost w a s a young gentlem an w ith a typical Yankee coun tenance anil the tall, thin, strong figure that m atches w ith it. I sym pathized w ith him because he w a s a fellow countrym an and also because he w a s 0 long w a y from home and so m ight be the more seriously em b arrassed by the sort o f indiscretion which this place w a s built to encourage. I observed that his eye w a s alw a y s on the wheel when the ball w a s rolling and that when it fell in the w rong place he started as if w ith a spasm o f pain. I had seen him lose about 200 francs upon the numbers 3 1 , 3 2 and 3 3 when a very charm ing young woman, simply dressed and escorted by a youth who looked as if he m ight be the brother o f the player, approached the table and addressed the object of my inter est. lie had no seat, but w a s reaching over between tw o other gam esters to lay down his bets. , A t the sound of the wom an’s voice be straightened up, withholding his money, and turned to speak to her. Their conversation w a s surely no busi ness of mine, and I moved aside, but I could not help hearing her beg him to come aw a y . She w a s not insistent, and she veiled her anxiety beneath some thin excuse of a social duty that he was ifc’glecting, yet the essence of the affair w a s obvious. I felt a strong de sire to take the young man by the col lav and march him out of the place, but the etiquette of Monte Carlo for * 1 8 * The duel in the dark was a favor ite with duelists. Two men were locked in a dark room and crawled stealthily fro m corner to corner, until some false step made one ot them the target f o r b u l l e t o r blade. Life is a duel in the dark with disease. One false step, one mistake, and the attack comes swift and sudden. The mistake which commonly opens the way for an attack by disease is neglect o f the symptoms of stomach trouble. When eating is followed by undue full ness, belcliings, sour or bitter risings, etc., disease is attacking the stomach. The best way to frustrate such an at tack is to use Dr. Pierce’s Golden Med ical Discovery. It cures diseases of the stomach and other organs of digestion and nutrition, and makes the body strong and healthy. \ I was suffering very much with my head and stomach,” writes Mrs. W. C. Gill, of Weldon, Shelby Co., Ala., Mieod was so dizzy when I would raise up in bed would fall right back. Could eat but very little, in fact scarcely any thing, there seemed to be a heavy weight in my stomach so I could not rest; I had to Belch very often and would vomit up nearly eveiythlng I ate. I was in a bad condition. I took four bot tles of Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medical Discovery and five of his * Favorite Prescription' and am now well and hearty.

So I remained passive, while the croupier announced the number 3 2 . The young woman, whom I rightly judged to be ttic w ife of the player, turned away, hiding considerable vex ation. She had accomplished nothing except that she had prevented her hus band from putting down his money at a time when he would have won. Though I felt that any gains lie might nutke would only bind him more se curely to a folly that could have but one conclusion, I w a s so full of human frailty os to wish that lie might win. It w a s not possible from where I stood to watch the rolling ball with any ac curacy or to get a notion wlicro it would fall even 111 the very last In- aunt. hut be w a s nearer, ami his la c i told me unm istakably when the In fernal bit o f ivory narrowly missed his numbers.

His last supply of 5 frank pieces quickly vanished, and ho began to bet “ petit moimaic” from Ills pockets. lie had a surprising quan tity of silver, and whenever I fancied he had come to the end of it lie would thrust a nervous hand into another pocket and bring forth the value of one more wager. I think, however, that his very last ft frank piece w a s on the board when the croupier called 3 2 . The young man had upon this number the value of $1, the sm allest sum that may be bet at Monte Carlo. When the be* had been paid, he had 180 francs, or $ 3 0 . W ith this encouragement he laid down his money more liberally, and alm ost im- m cdiately won again upon 3 1 . Then I could see in his eyes that hope w a s alive in him. It alw a y s seems so natural that fate should relent. The element of pity in a human heart is shocked by the brutality of chance and is very slow to believe that the ulti mate intention can be bad. It m ay have seemed only fair to this young gentle man that he should have a turn of luck upon his last coin and should win enough to recompense him for bis suf ferings. He wiped the sw e a t from Ills brow and w e n t into the silly struggle w ith a new courage. But the little ivory ball that cared nothing for him or for his sacred obli gations to his w ife refused to perform the small service that w a s requisite. Instead It tantalized him by falling into 1 7 , which is on one side of 3 2 , and then into 20, which is upon the other side of it. And I could see the poor fel low ’s heart leap in his bosom. W a tching this perform ance, I got my first comprehension of the gambling passion, which has for its basis a fatu ous pugnacity; an aimless, agonizing resistance to an im p alpable foe. A t the outset I wished this man to stop play ing. I knew that he w a s doing a foolish tiring. A t the last I merely wished him to win, and I s a w his coin dwindle with no more rational feeling than sorrow and w rath that he m u st stop, give up, go aw a y beaten. I remembered hearing that an Eng lish nobleman. Lord Arrelsford, whose w e a lth had been a byword on the con tinent since the recent death of his un cle, had won 4 5 ,0 0 0 francs on the day before our arrival. W h y could not such luck come to this man who needed it rather than to that Croesus to whom ten tim es the sum would be o f no im portance? W hen one asks w h y , why, w h y, he is beginning to be a gambler, for a sane man knows there is no w h y in the matter. “ T h a t man is losing more than he can afford,” whispered W ilmot. “ I don’t like the look of him.” “ Nor I.” w a s my rejoinder. “ Con found those numbers! W h y don't they come ?” “T h e y w o n ’t show again,” said W il mot, w ith the confidence o f an experi enced gam b ler who is alw a y s deceived w ith the notion that he has some small insight into the w a y s o f chance. “ He is on his last legs.” “ I don’t think he has another franc in his pockets,” said I, “ b u t it looks as if he w e re going to m ake another search.” “ So you’ve noticed that hand o f his, eh? It’s hovering around his hip pock et, and It’s not money he has there.” “ Y ou don’t mean” — “ I mean just that,” whispered W il mot. “ He wouldn’t be the first man who’s shot him self over that table. The croupiers are w a tching him.” “ Gracious heavens!” I exclaimed. “ Did you see Iris w ife?” W ilm ot nodded, w ith his eyes full of meaning. “ T h is Is a terrible place,” he said. “ E d ge over a little nearer to him, and if he loses his next bet look out!” The croupier called 5 .
