A Private Soldier by the. name of
Richard Lee, was taken before the mag
istrates of Glagow for playing cards
during devlne services. The account
of It Is thus given in the English Jour
nal. Sergeant commanded tho soldiers
at the church, and when the parson had
read the prayer he took the text. Those
who had a Bible took it out; but this

lie first looked at one and then another.
The sergeant of the company saw him
and said; "Richard, put up the cards;
this Is no place for them."
"Never mind that," said Richard.
When'tlie services were over, the
constable took Richard a prisoner, and
brought him before tbe Mayor.
"Well," said tho Mayor, "what
have you brought the soldier here for?"
"For playing cards In church.''
"Well, soldier, what have you to say
'Much, sir, I hope."
"Very good. If riot 'I wlll'punlsh you
"I have been, said the soldier, "about
six weeks on the march, I havo neither
Bible nor Common Prayer Book J have
nothing but a pack of cards, and I hope
to satisfy your worship of the purity of
Then spreading tho cards bifore the
Mayor, the began with th9 ace :
"When I see the ace It' reminds me
that there Is but one God."
"When I see theduece it reminds me
of the Father and Son ."
"When I see the tray it reminds me
of the Father, Son and IToly Ghost."
''When I see the four It reminds me
of the four Evangelists that preached
Matliew, Mark, ,Luke and John." I
''When I see tho Ave It reminds me
of the five wise vh-gins that trimmed 1
their lamps. They were ten, but five
were wise and five were foolish and
were shut out.
"When I see tho six It reminds me
that in six days tho Lord made heaven
and earth. ,
"When I see the seven it reminds me
that on the seventh day God rested from
the gread work which he had made and
"When I see the eight it reminds me
of the eight righteous persons that were
saved when God destroyed the world,
viz: Noah and hii wifo, his three sons
and their wives."
"When I see the ninth it reminds me
of the nine lepers' that were cleansed
by our Saviour. There were nine out
of ten who never returned thanks."
"When I see the ten it reminds me
of thd ten Commandments which God
handed down to Moses on the tables of
"When t see tbe King it reminds me
of the Great King of Heaven, which Is
"When I see tho Queen It reminds
me of the Queen' of Sheba, who visited
Solomon for she was as wlso a woman
as he was a man. She brought with
her fifty boys and fifty girls, all dressed
in boy's apparel for King Solomon to
tell which were boys and which were
girls. The King sent for water for
them, to wash. Tbe girls washed to the
elbows and the boy to the wrists; so
Kiug Solomon told by that."
"Well." said tho Mayor, "you havo
described every card in tbe pack except
"What Is that?"
"The knave," said the Mayor."
"I will give your honor a description
of that, too, If you will not be angry."
"I will not," said the Mayor, "if you
do not term mo to be the knave."
"The greatest knave I know of Is the
constaule that brought me here."
"I do not know," said the Mayor,
"If he is the greatest knave, . but I
know he Is the greatest fool."
"When I count how many spots there
are In a pack of cards. I find three bun.
dred and sixty-five, as many spots as
there are days tn a year,"
"When 1 count the number of caids
Id a pack I find fifty-two the number
of weeks In a year."
"I find there are twelve picture cards
In a pack representing the number of
months In a year, and on counting the
tricks I find thirteen the number of
weeks In a quarter,"
"So, you see, a pack of cards serves

"Think or It, Manner."
On tho train tho other day were a
very confiding old man and a'very In
nocent old lady. They had passed away
five-sixth of their lives hidden away be
hind the hills of Vermont, and were go
ing to western Michigan on a visit to
their son. After skirmishing round
tho old gentleman pitched Into me about
tho "crops," "slle," and when I found
how Innocent he was, I gavo him all the
Information I could. All at once, as
he rode along, tho wife caught his arm
"Look out, Samuel,- or you'll be for
getting that place where they fit!"
Tbe old man explained. He said
that a young roan who came down from
Canada with them, told him to look
out for tbe battle field of Braddock's
defeat as soon as he left Detroit.
I was going to reply that the young
man was an infernal liar, but the old
lady seemed to have set her heart on
seeing tho spot, and the old man was
so anxious that I couldn't bear to dis
appoint them. When we got down Into
the woods ,1 pointed out tbe "battle
field," and they put their heads out of
the windows and took In the scene.
"Think of It, Hanner," exclaimed
the old man, as ho drew In his bead ;
thick of them Injuns creeping through
them woods and shooting Mr, 27raddock
"My soull" replied the old lady,
seemingly overcome at the idea, and
she kept her eyes on the woods until I
thought she'would twist her neck off.
We got along all' right for about five
miles more, and tho old man wanted to
know If we weren't down pretty near
the spot' where Tecuraseh fell.
"Where?" I yelled, and he said that
the same young roan had informed him
that the railroad ran close to the Iden
tical spot where the great Indian war
rior fell and slept.
"It'll be a powerful favor to mo an'
Samuel If ye'll1 point out the spot,"
uiged the old.lady, placing her hand on
How could I go back on what that
brazen' young man had said? The old
folks had made up their minds to see
tho spot, aud If I didn't show them they
might worry for weeks, and they might
.think the young man had lied, or that
I wasn't posted in tho hlstorlo spots of
my own State. Lor' forgive me but a
mile further on I pointed out a hill and
"Behold the last resting place of the
"Think of it, Hannar Just think of
itfexclalmed the old man; "right there
Is where they got hi ml"
"Mercy! but ty don't seem posslblel"
she ejaculated, and she had to get out
her snuff-box before she could recover
from tbe shock.
The old gentleman said he had a par.
tlcular interest lu seeing the spot, be
cause he kuew tbe man who had killed
Tecumseh used to live right by htm.
"no must have been an awful Injun?1 '
broke in tho old lady, "for the young
man said he didn't die till tbey had cut
off his head, and feet, and hands, and
blowed tbe body up with a barrel of
I wanted to get away after tbat,
fearing that something worse was com
ing, but she Insisted upon my taking
a pinch of snuff, and sol kept my seat.
We were Just beyoud Brighton, when
the old man came at me like a steam
"Now, then, how fur Is It to the spot:
where they found the Babes In the
I wanted to get out of It; ' but how
could I? That young man had deliber
ately lied to those nice old folks, and I
hadn't tho moral courage to tell them
so, and thus had to make a liar of my
self. It's awful to it oelve any one, es
pecially a good old man and a fat and
motherly old lady, on tbelr way to the
"That's yes that's tho spot!" I
said as we came to a dark piece of
"Think o that, nannerl" ho said,
his head out of tho window; "think of
them babies being found In there I"
"Yes, It was fearful!" she replied;
' seems as It I could almost see them
stubbing about In there nowl"
There was, another hlstorlo spot of
which the young man had told them,
but they had forgotten It, and I was
never more thankful. Tbey kept quiet
until the brakeman yelled out "Lans
ing," and then the old man bobbed up
"Lansing Lansing why, here's
where they bung Tom Collins, ain't
Ha explained tbat Tom Collins, a
Chicago desperado, had murdured 11
old women and drank their blood for
his liver' complaint, and after being
hunted for miles and miles, had at
length been captured at Lansing, cnt to
pieces by tho Ufuilated populace, and
then left hanging to a tree.
I had to point out the tree. It was
a tree near tho depot, and the tall of a
kite had lodged In Its branches.
"There's where they hung hlm,Han

"And, there's some o' his shirt left

backed out of the car, the good old man
was remarking that ho was going to ask

Libel Suits Growing out of
Several law suits, have been Instituted
by Henry C. Bowen, for libels which
he claims have been published of him
In some of the .Brooklyn evening Journ
als. There Is a liable suit against the
Brooklyn Eagle, In which tlie damages
are laid at $100,000, for an Interview
with him reported In that paper on the
4th Inst., which Mr. Bowen states nev
er took place. In the summons and
complaint which were yesterday served
upon. tbe proprietor of tho paper, tho
interview Is producted and contains cer
tain statements purportingto come from
Mr. Bowen in relation to the interview
be and Mr. Claflln had. with Mrs.
Woodhull. He Is represented as hav
ing stated that he wouldhava believed the
Woodhull story had she shown him all
the documents at the timo. He Is also
made to say that he was surprised
these documents were not received by
the Investigation Committee, when she .
offered to produce them. Mr. ifowen
has also Instituted a libel suit
against the reporter; In which ho
claims damages of 150,000, anil In
this case bail was fixed at $2,000.
James McDormott, who wrote the al
leged Interview in the Eagle, has made
an affidavit stating that everything con
tained In the article was true, and that
he had tho interview with Mt, Bowen
on the evening of August G, atBowen's
residence at Willow and Clark streets,
between 7 and 0 o'clock. McDermott
Is not regularly employed by the Eagle,
but has recently furnished several ar
ticles and reports of Interviews to tho
Argus ond Eagle.
A Criminal suit Is also brought a
galnst Mr. .Barnes, proprietor of tho
Brooklyn Argus, for a "malicious libel"
published In that Journal on tbe 21th
Inst., In which tbe memory and repu
tation of Mr. Bo wen's late wife bis vili
fied, with Intent, heclalmes,to Injure and
frara himself and family. This com
plaint Is made In Mr. Bowen's behalf
and tn behalf of his two sons, Edward
A. Bowen and Clarence W. Bowen.
The legal papers containing these
charges were sworn to last week before
Justice Morse, who Imme'dlarely caused
a warrant to bo Issued for the arrest of
Mr. Barnes, Officer Barr executed the
warrant, and soon after Mr. Barnes
appeared In court and stated tbat the
article complained of was published
without his knowledge, and that as soon
as he discovered It be caused the pub
lication to bo stopped.
Tbe aliened libel in the case of Mr.
Barnes consists o( the publication of
an article purporting to be an Interview
with Mr. U, M. Smith, late of tbo
Chicago Tribune, In which the name of
Dr. Patton, of Chicago, is very freely
mentioned as the authority for certain
