A GAMESTER'S REVENGE
In the autumn of tho year 183—, Dieppe
was more visited than over. Every dhy - thol
number of rich strangers increased, and- 4-
cited the ardor of 'speculators of . all. kinds ) .
who abound in those sort of places. The
directors of the faro banks did not fall bo
hindhand, and displayed on their tables
quantities of money in order to attract their
dupes, whom the brightness of the metal

becomes a _passion often irresistible. It is
by no means rare to see people, who before
never touched a card, attach themselves
witlmurt - reliwatilm to the-gaming-table,-and
lose their all on the hazardous combination
of the game. The higher classes, who wish
ono every night to risk a few pieces of gold,
contribute not a, little to extend this fatal
A young German baron, named Stris
mond, was the sole deception to this gene
ral rule. When (s:vorybody; went to
and thus deprived him of the means of hold
ing an agreeable conversation, ha retired to
his chamber with a book, or ,went to walk
in the country and admired. ntadre, which
is enchanting in this beautifdl country.
Sigismond•was young, independent, rich,
of a noble figure and handsome face; and
he could not fail of being -loved and of
haying much sticcess , among women. A
hicky star seemed to beam upon him, and'
to guide him in all he, did. He spoke of
some twenty affairs of the heart, all very
adventuresomo,which were ended for him
a manner the most agreeable, as- well as
unexpected. , Ho recounted, above tho
history of a watch, which witnessed to his
continued prosperity. Sigismond, yet very
young, in traveling, found himself without
money, so that in order to continue his route
he would be obliged tg sell his watch, rich
ly. garnished with jewels. When he arrived
at the hotel, ho fmind a young prince
wished to purchase an object of that kind,
and who paid him 'over its value. Some
time elapsed. Sigismond - attained hislma
jority was 'in possession of his fortune,
he learned from the public papers that
a watch was to be put up in a lottery. Ho
purchtiseda ticket, which cost him a trifle,
and gained the watch he had sold. A. little
time after, ho exchanged it fora bandeau of
diamonds: A. little later, ho served •the
Priii& - lES - -n the qualityerchambetdalic.
The Pnnce, wishing to recompense him Tor
his zeal and fidelity, made him a present of
the same watch and of a precious chain.
This ntivonttaro wt. the moso-romnrhob/s,
as Sigismolid would not touch a card—he,
whom fortune never goosed to bless ; and
_p_doyle scorned right in theii opinion of the
Baron, who tarnished, said they, by an ex
trnme avarice, all his brilliant qualities and
wpkobjected even to the smallest loss. Nor
did a, closer examination of the Baron re
move tho charge of avarice, and as ho Ar li
rived in a very common way, this unfavor
able opin.ion attached itself to his person.
The Baron was .soon apprised of what
was said: of him, and, generous and liberal
as he was, ho resolved, although repugnant
to big feelings, to lose some gold pieces every
night at cards, in order to remove the sus
picion raised against him. Ho wont into
the ball of play with tho firm design of
losing a considerable sum, tint the same
good fortune, whiclibefore blessed him, still
abided with 'him. Every card ho last on
won. Tho calculations of tho bankers worn
of no avail ; the gain was always on his
side. The Baron
_presented the rare and
curious spectacle of a player who 'was in
sensible to the favors, of fortune, and ono_
could see clearly upon the visages of .thosei
around, that'thoy regarded-him as an idiot
for defying so long the fickle goddess. i Tho
immense gains of the Baron obliged'him in,
some-sort-to continuo and ho
ed to lose finally all which ho had 'gained.
But it Vicaild not be thus, and his troubles
was, useless—his good fortune was always
lie did not show much diicontent at his
-good fortune ; tha_play finally absorbed - all
his attention, and he did nQt: rain ' ) till morn-
ing. Ile was not 'entranced by the gain,
but by the play—entranced by the peculiar
charms, of which his friends had so often
spoken, ,and which he had resolved never to
The-next night in raising his eyes at thi3
moment when the bunker finished a game,
-ho.poreeivocl a man who had ;fined himself
directly opposite him, and whose sad but
severe look.never-quitted him for anaomerit;
-and several-times_when_the Baron raised his
eyes he still encountered the sombre regards
of the stranger, which caused in him a son,
sation which he could not explain. When
the play ended, the stranger departed' from
tho'hall. On 'the following
_night he was
again face to face.tvitlf th axon; and re

when the stranger appeared, S ~
claimed, '" Monsieur, I pray , ott to select'
some other place ; you spoil my play.!' .The
etrangef bowed with a sad air, 'and quitted'
the hall without speaking a word.
„,13ut the folfowing night he wee again be

his sombre looks. Sigismond rosein a fury,,
which he took,no pains to conceal. "Mon.,

am not so altogether. That which I have
suffices for my modest manner of living. As
to the rest, you convince me that, believing
-you have, given me offence, you would - re- ,
pair . itby giving me a little money. I can
not accept this sort of reparation."
"T. understand yom i " said the Baron,
" and I am willing to give you all the satis
faction you desire."
" Oh, heavens I" cried the stranger ; "„a
combat between us would be unequal! I
am persuaded _that, . like me„ you regard
duel as no child's play, and that you (Is not

you, the combat would be unequal, for my
life is not worth the value of yours. If you
arc defeated, I take non. Gi‘u r.
its ornaments ; and if I perish, you will
have terminated a life full of, agony and ex
istence already destroyed: But the princi
ple is that you have effended me; you told
me to quit, and I did so."
Theistranger pronounced the last words
in a.tone Which revealed a hidden resent
.ment. :_This WftS4l:motivo for the Baron to
excuse himself anew, and ho said that the
looks of the stranger had sunk deeply into
his soul, and filled him with dread.
" You now see th danger which you rap,"
said the stranger r" you advanced to the
table with all tho joy and trifling of the
young ; another moment and you would
have been precipitated into an abye of tor
ture„.without hope of return. In 'word,
you wero on tho point of beco a pas.
Tho Baron pretended that the stranger
was mistaken. lie recounted the circum
stances which had Made him a player, and

three hundred louis, which he intended
ho would cease playing. But just
then ho was too fortunate to d 6 so.
" Alas I" cried thci stranger, " this luck is
a terrible present from the infornal powers.
This good :fortune with which you play,
Baron, the manner in which you have com
menced, your, conduct whilst at play, which
shows that littby little you are taking a
deep interest in\t, all, all, recall to me the
horrible fate of\ an unfortunate whocom
menced as you. This is why I could not

the bottom'of hell. I \wished to save you.
I desired your acquainthnee—l have at last
succeeded. Learn the kistory of this un
fortunate being, and convince yourself that
this danger really exists."
The stranger, seated upot a - baiik - ;' - made
a sign to the Baron to take place near him,
and commenced in those terms :
Tho same brilliant qualities which distin
guished you, M. lo Baron, (said the stran
ger), gained _the Chevalier, do Monars the
esteem and Admiration of the mon, and - tho
'favor 'of the -ladies. Only in that which
concerns money was ho different from you.
Ile was rather poor, and had nothing but.,a
small legacy wherewith to sustain the ap
pearance of a descoridont of a noble family.
As the loss of this legacy would have troub
led "his manner of living, ho abstained en
tirely, from play, and , in this.he _made no
sacrifice, for ho never approved of this pas
sion ; and finally the happiness of the Choy
alicr passed into a proverb.
One night, against his custom, ho was led
`into a house of play. The. friends who ac
companied him gave their - wolves up without
reserve to all the hazard. of the game.
Without taking part in that which passed,

And he wandered, thougfully through
the glittering palace of destruction, where a
demon in the OA pf the goddess Fortune
trirned the wheel and smiled unpityingly, on,.
those who wba orlost. All at once an old^

card he ohoso fortuno favored, and he soon
.gained a ernisiderable stun-for the Clolonol,
who congratulated himself at having secured
such an auxiliary.
The fortune of the clhevalier, which sur
prised all the bankers, made not the slight
est impression on - `himself. His' aversion
to playing was riot much lessened ; and the
next day, whiluesting from the fatigue of,
the preceding night—passed without sleep—
ho resolved never to visit a gaming saloon.
And, as In spite of his good fortune, the
Ohovalior, persisted in his riiholntion; his
friends could not help according' to him the

A year passed, when the qieyalier found,
himself suddenly in a most embarrassing

cover his situation to yne'c;f his most faith
ful friends, who soon came to his aid, but
who also considered him as ono of the most
eccentric menin_the world.
"Destiny," said ho to him, "dictates to
us always the route by which we can roach
our fortune: It is our indolencii only that

If before, in playing for the Colonel, the
Chevalier had been successful, he was still
more so now. The gbld he had gained
formed a' great pile before fdm . . When the
game was over, ho counted and recounted
his money with a thrill of strange delight,

sullied tho purity of the soul Inclifid pre

and freedom of 'mind—that calm superiority
which animates the breast of a true mats.
" Too latel too late I" he groaned, "I
have tasted the poisoned cup ; I.can never
recover my lost happiness. I must abide
by my fate."'
The demon had indeed gained entire pos
session of hini. He had hardly patience
enough to wait for the night in order to
commence playing. His fortune was the
same, and in a Abort timebe had gained an
immense sum. • . _
Affairs continued thus for several days,
He established a bank with the considerable
sums be had gained ; and fortune Was still
favorable, so , that in a short time he found
himself ono of the richest, bankers of Pariti . . -
The life darkened and occupied by play soon
destroyed, the physical and intellectual ad
vantages of the Chevalier: Ho ceased to bo
, a- faithful friend, a spirited and agreeable
cavalier, a devoted - lc:Nor of the ladies, His
ardor for the sciences and the arts died out;
and . upbn ' MOW features-pale and dead, in
those oyes fixed and hard, one could see dis
tinctlythe passion which devoured him. It
was. not the ardor of play; but the flames of
hell, that,Satan had kindled in his soul ; and
like a spectre of happiness, ho reigned in his
glittering abode of ruin. _ '
One night -an old-map, dressed in rags and,
of a ropulsii'o address, approached thetable
at the house of the Cheyalier, took a card in
his trembling hand, and placOd a piece of
gold upon it. Many of the players regakdad;
him with astonishment, and treated him with
marked contempt.. The old man lost. Ho
lost one pieco after anothei, until at last,
staking all ho had with him on ono card; and
losing, ono of the players, laughing, said:
"Signor Vortua, do not lose courage—con-
Saud thy play. - ion aro on the road to for
tune; do but continuo, and, thou wilt break
the-bank." ! . -
The old man threw the look of a flood
updn tho'railer, and disamfeardd quickly.
But, half an hour afterward, ho reappeared
with pockets full of gold ; but, ho was soon ,
forced to quit as before. -
The disdain and contempt which had boon
shown the old man disposed the Chovalior to
rebuke the players for it.
" You do not know oi'd Francesco Vortua,
Chevalier," cried one ; "if yon, did you
would not blame our conduct. Know then
that this Yortua , is a Neapolitan noble ; it
