THE 01/D ROMAN. 4 Talk With Ex-Senator Alien G. Thurman. From the Brooklyn Eagle. That veteran Democrat, ex-Seuator Allen G Thurman, of Ohio, is spending a few days with his eldest married daughter, the wife of Lieut. Cowles, of the Navy, at his elegant country residence at Richmond Hill. A reporter went out, there yesterday after noon to interview' him. For many years he hua enjoyed the reputation of hating the interviewer as thoroughly and conscien tiously as a fat man hates a corn. With the aid of the demure and stately lass who ’tends the post office in the village, the re porter succeeded in getting on the road to the cottage. “Faith an’ bejabbers,” said a weather beaten Irishman, a bystander, beating the damp air with his horny and saffron colored hand to give emphasis to his remarks, “an’ ye couldn’t miss the house if ye’d a moind to. It’s got the funniest looking basement ye ever saw in yer loife. It stands on a Bill." The chimneys were just visible over the tree tops. Hie reporter trudged along in the rain. Suddenly a turn in the road brought the house into plain view. It occu pied a commanding position, and was ap proached by a road skirting it on two sides. One side of the house appeared to consist of an immense deserted con servatory, presenting an extensive front of glass. When within several hundred yards of the residence the figure of a tall, gray haired man loomed up out of the interior darkness of the conservatory and stalked majestically to the window. One fiance sufficed to show' that the man w’as udge Thurman, and the reporter did not fail to observe, as soon as he got close enough, that the old gentleman was gazing at him curiously and somewhat meditative ly as though divining the nature of his visit, while endeavoring to fix on a scheme to put a quietus on him. There was an exuression of surprise in the sharp gray eyes, too, that indicated that it was the first time a re porter had called in that neighborhood since bis arrival a W'eek ago. On entering the house, the reporter found Judge Thurman lying upon a couch near the window, in what has appeared to be a conservatory, but which was simply a large sitting room, ajmost the entire side of the house being of glass. It was a light port able couch, covered with soft rugs, and rest ing upon a tiger skin, the floor lieing of bare, stained wood. The ex-Senat;or arose with a little evident difficulty to greet his visitor and cordially extended a white hand, with long fingers, and which felt wondrous soft when contrasted with the sturdy frame and the strong, rugged outlines of the face. He twisted himself into a sitting posture on the side of the couch, shifting , his slip pered feet a little restlessly bade and forth on the floor, his elbows resting on bis knees, his hands clasped and his head hanging for ward. A large book, bound in garnet cloth, was on the bottom of the couch. It was opened, and the Judge had been reading it when the reporter arrived. After a few in troductory words of w'elcome, be said: “I have suffered greatly from lumbago during the past montn. I cannot sit up longer than fifteen or twenty minutes at a time without experiencing such a pain in the small of my back that I am compelled to lie down again.” “I see you have been reading,” said the reporter. “Yes,” replied Judge Thurman, lying back on the couch,” “and it is a highly in teresting book. McClellan was a grand, good man. He was upright, and as inflex*- lbly honest as any man I ever knew'. Ah! w'hat a shame to have attacked him so! He was one of God’s own men." These words were uttered slowly and earnestly, and in a manner that showed that Judge Thurman had been a most ardent friend and admirer of the gallant ‘‘Little Mae.” The conversation turned to general topics, the Judge declaring that he would not be in terviewed. “The only thing I will talk about,” he ex claimed with a laugh, “is the weather.” “Are you out of politics for goods” asked the reporter. “Yes,” answered the Judge, emphatically. Then in a moment he hastened to add: “When I say that lam out of politics for good I don’t mean to say that I am out to the extent of not taking any further in terest in them. But I don’t want and lam not a candidate for any office whatever." It. was intimated that the public would feel a legitimate interest in whatever opinion the Judge might care to express relative to the recent red-hot controversy over the restoring of Confederate battle flags to their former owners. The Judge shook his head gently and half closed his eyes, as though he were mildly disgusted at the mere men tion of the subject: “I suppose the demagogues will make all they can out of the incident,” lie sententiously. He inquired with evident interest what position the leading papers of New York city liad taken in the matter, his first inquiry being: “How did Charles A. Dana stand?” W r hen informed that Mr. Dana had characterized the order for the return of the flags as a big blunder the Judge said: “Uin!” in a way that showed that he was indulging in a somewhat profound medita tion. “Will you say what you think of Mr. Cleveland and his administration?” asked the reporter. “Yes, I w’ill,” answered the Judge prompt ly, and evidently embracing the question as an opportunity to put himself on record on the matter. “I regard Mr. Cleveland as a brave, an honest and an able man. I might not, perhaps, have done exactly as he has done had I been in his place, but I believe him to be thoroughly upright and honest, and to possess much more ability than he is given credit for. I think that he has never aone except what he believed to be right. ” The talk touched on Blaine. “The general sentiment seems to be, said the reporter, in answer to a question bear ing on the point by the Judge, “that Mr. Blaine can get the Republican nomination if he wants it.” . “It is a year yet before the politicians get together,” said the Judge, “andyou can t begin to tell what may happen in a year. This was not said in a manner that indicated that Judge Thurman was at all apprehen sive about Mr. Blaine’s candidacy, or that he regarded him as a dangerous man to fight in the next national campaign, but in a way that conveyed the impression that the Judge was really in serious doubt as to whether the Plumed Knight could get or Would take the nomination, lie showed how he regarded the situation by asking: “Can Mr. Blaine get a solid Now \ork delegation?”, To this question, of course, there could be no satisfactory answer. The Judge inquired after Gen. Harry W. Slocum. „ . ~ “He was a mighty good soldier, ho said. BIG POKER UP NORTH. The Big Four of the Rod River Valley- MaJ. Ed wards*’ Success as a Bluffer. From the Chicago Herald. Interest in the game of draw poker in the Northwest has lteen gradually dying °ut during the past five years. Those men who made the Rod river valley famous for the recklessness with which the national game was played within its boundaries have turned their attention to legitimate business in towns and cities that have sprung up along the bunks of the Red river, and when they turn their attention now to cards it is more for pleasure than profit. Ten years ago there was a coterie of poker players in that country who won and lost fortunes on card*, and they did it as cheerfully as thov How risk their money in real estate and other speculations that carry with them an air of legitimacy. . ...... Maj. A. VV. Edward* was probably the sti(test poker player in the Red river valley a few years ago, and there were out few of the best who had the courage to meet him on neutral ground. He nevei won thereputaion of playing anything Out an honest game. H did not depend on tricks and clever mauipui-ition of c*rd3 tor M&mmisf^ arriedin f° the e ame with him of nerve that .usually scared bis opponent into defeat. J CMtodwiM* w on , his , wa y 10 the national Ki" th ' Uta few hundred dollars in JJfLjS* Ut , ln Paul he niet a couple of him m t en i fro ‘V Louisville Ky-. who asked never 13111 at cardu - T be Major never refused an invitation of that nature, a “ ‘ a ot four was soon made up. The gentlemen trom Louisville are well-known .. P°f ltl cal circles, and have reputation && vcr -V clever card players. The game began in a small room on the third floor of !. , I , < ri^ erch u antti oarl v bi the evening, and the chips shifted from hand to hand w itaout material gain to either player until daybreak, when the Major puiled bis heavy slouch hat over his eyes, and, tucking one loot under him, his favorite position when play ing, started out to play his game. For a time ha surprised the Southrons at his Utter abandon, but he never showed his nand when he could avoid it. At last ho stood pat. His opponents drew cards, and one man forced the fight with three kings, another three queens, and a third four ten spots. The Major made bid for more money. He was promptly raised. The Major met the raise and went it 8500 bettor, but his opponents were not tired and asked him for more. lie had only 850 in his pocket, and calling a bell boy he sent a note down stairs to Col. Allen, proprietor or the Merchants’ Hotel, asking him for a loan of 81,000. The Colonel knew his man, and up went a check for the desired amount, and the Major coolly dropped the check on the pile of chips and money in the centre of the table, and, leaning back in the chair, took a cigar from his pocket and lighted it. This was too much for the others, who sized him up for four aces, and they threw up their hands. The Major drew in the money, cashed the chips, and found that he had won 8-1,700 on the hand. His opponents looked at their watches, yawned, and push ing back their chairs said they were tired and would quit playing. Before they left they’ picked up the Major’s hand and found that he had stood pat ;uid won the pot on a pair of fours. The four spot the Major considered his lucky card, and never failed to play it hard whether he held one or a quartette of them, and he says it never yet lost for him. Col. Morrow, a citizen of Fargo, who emi grated to that country early in the seventies from the soil of Virginia, was about the only card player in that country who wouldn’t take a bluff from the Major. The men were the warmest friends. They seemed to run a mutual admiration society, but when they faced each other over a stack of chips they fought as warmly and as determinedly as though they were the bitterest enemies. In ’79 the Major and the Colonel sat down to a game in Biily Morrison’s star chamber, which was then the headquarters of sporting men in that part of the country. The game had been a hard one, slightly in favor of the Colonel. Finally he opened a good sized jack pot on a pair of kings. The Major stayed and drew two cards which gave him nothing but a “bobtail” flush. The Colonel took three cards, but didn't better his hand, and he bet 8500 that his kings were good. The Major pulled a check book out of his pocket, made out a check for 8-1,000 and dropped it on the centre of the table. This was a challenge to the Colonel’s nerve which he didn’t hesitate a moment to accept, and without any show of excitement he promptly called the bet. The Major threw down his broken back flush, the Colonel dropped his kings and raked in the money. The game stopped there. Alexander McKenzie, Sheriff of Burleigh county for many years, was a strong player, and ranking with him were John Haggart, for fifteen years Sheriff of Cass county, and Judson Lamoure, a resident of Pembina, where he owns a great deal of property, and is a sort of whipper-in for the Republican party in that portion of the Territory. These men were known throughout the Teritory as the “Big four,” and whenever they came together there was a hard game. John Haggart was a reckless player, but his good fortune always pulled him through a game with a winning to his credit. Jud Lamoure, as he was familiarly called, was usually the victim. This quartette started a game six years ago in Fargo that continued from Wednesday at 10 o’clock p. m. until Saturday noon, and none of the players slept during that time. In the end Edwards was a big winner. Haggart pocketed some thing like 85,000, while McKenzie and Lamoure went broke. These men rarely meet nowadays over the cards. Maj. Edwards is devoting himself to the management of the Fargo Argus, of which he is editor and proprietor, and seldom sits down to cards. When he does it is but a friendly game of casino, hearts, sinch or whist. He has been turning his attention to politics of late and a few weeks ago was elected Mayor of Fargo, and his ambition is now soaring toward the halls of Congress. Alexander McKenzie last year surrendered the shrievalty of Burleigh county, and has settled back on the 8100,000 that he accumulated when he was in office. He makes Bismarck his headquarters, and he is considered the shrewdest political wire puller in Dakota. . John Haggart was knocked out of the Sheriffs office a year ago by the Democrats, and is now paying close attention to his bonanza farm on the banks of the Cheyenne river. He has made money in Dakota, and is worth 8900,iX)0. HUMBUG IN WINES. How Native Brands Are Made Foreign In the Cellars of New York. From the A’etn York Sun. “We make from 30,000,000 to 35,000,000 gallons of American wine yearly, and we do not import over 5,000,000. Those figures tell whether the wine druuk by our people is foreign or American.” So spoke a New York wine dealer. “By far the large} part of the American wine, however,” he added, “is not sold as American, but as foreign wines Only a few days ago I visited the cellar of one of the largest wine merchants in the city. It contained many thousands of gallons of American wine, the casks being marked ‘St. Julien,’ Medoc,’ etc., through the list of prominent foreign’ brands. Hotel men go there and order these wines bottled and labelled as foreign wine, and I saw in the cellar ninny thousands of labels ready for use in this wav. These parties take good care not to imitate a trade mark, but they give the wine the foreign name and sell it as foreign to their guests. It is a strictly confidential business as between the wine merchant and the hotel keeper. The American wine is bottled right there in the cellar, marked with the foreign label, and then sent to the hotel, so that the hotel proprietor is not put in tho power ot ! his steward or caterer bv the latter knowing the source from which his employer receives his wines. Of course this does not apply to ail hotels. “It is not difficult to see the advantage of all this,” went on the wine dealer. “It en ables the hotel man to sell his wines at a profit of 100 to 200 jior cent., and it enables the American wine producer to dispose of his product, that might otherwise be left on '"“But one of the most interesting decep tions ” added the wine dealer, “is that per petrated by some of the creme de. la creme upon their confiding friends. Some rich in dividual, who lias a coat of arms, amt coats of arms can always be (?ot in London at the right figure, will order a quantity of Amer ican wine 1 Kittled, and have ft label with his coat of arms stamped on the bottle. Then he Confides to his friends, as they 101 l over the dinner table, that the wine wasoxpress- V imported for his private us*.

He Has a Shadow Flirtation With tho Occupant of Berth Fifteen. From the Chicago Herald. Here is a true incident of summer travel: My friend Knox boarded the express train some time near 10 o’clock in the evening, and found the sleepers crowded with passen gers. The colored porter offered a choice of two places—the lower bunk in section 1, the upper birth lieing occupied by an old fen tinman, or the upper berth in section 5, the lower having been taken in New York by a charming young woman, according to the porter. Knox wasn’t half a minute in making a choice. No. 1 was too near tho door, over the wheels, in fact, and to 15 with the porter ho went. He took his little pair of steps in behind tho drab curtains and mounted to his perch. Each of the berths had a short vallance of lace close to tho bed, and a foot awat there swept from tho cornice a heavy drab rep curtain. Up in the cockloft Knox made a few alterations in his toilet, handed his shoes to tho porter, and addressed himself to sleep; but somehow his mind kept wandering to the lower berth. He wondered if its occupant was a blonde or a brunette. The officious porter came along talking to someone just then, and a voice as sweet as a maroon glace said below him: “Is that you, porter? Will you give me a glass of water, please?” Knox lay with his neck on the rail of his bed, as if" it was a guillotine, till the water came, and a slim, white hand stretched forth and took the glass. Then the pretty hand went out again, and fluttered around a refractory button ou the curtain. Byron has said that tho “moon sees more mischief in a month than the sun gets a shine at in r year,” and the moon really does sown to take an interest in seeing fun. As the cars were racing through bucolic scenes she burst forth in all her splendor, and throw a radiant field of white light on the surface of the drab curtain. Madam had pushed aside the little lace flounces of her couch, as she took the water, and now, as Knox rested his off ear on the side rail, he could see the sharply defined outline of a graceful head, and a shapely arm thrown partly over it. The shadow fasci nated him. It changed; evidently tho sub stance of it had turned from tho window and was facing the curtain. For an instant a hand flitted across the moon-lit square, in search, perhaps, for the little muff-like pad which railroad companies furnish for pil lows. The restless sleeper noticed the pretty shadow of her hand, no doubt, for she held it so that all the fingers were displayed. She made a fist of it. She did “fly away, Jack, come, Jill,” with her thumb ana pinky finger. In an instant Knox thought of something. He dropped his hand over the side till the moon's rays threw its shadow beside the smaller one on the rep curtain. Instantly the little one disappeared. Knox has a handsome hand. It is one of his strong points. It is a large hand, perhaps, but woU shaped, white and admirably cared for. Its proprietor showed that he admired it, for on the third Anger gleamed and glistened in the moonlight a $7OO diamond. Such a beauty! Many a time and oft, as he toyed with his moustache in public places, he had seen admiring glances wander to it. An ugly man can attract at tention with a five-karat stone, and Knox knew its attraction for the fair sex. The newly arrived shadow on the curtain hung limp and listless for a moment. Then it took the shape of the first letter of the deaf and dumb alphabet—the second—the third. Knox got on well till he arrived at H. when he seemed to be stranded. To his delight the little fist crept onto the curtain with the thumb and little finger sitting up like soldiers, helping him to the letter I. After this they went along together smooth ly until they came to O. But the lady bridged over the difficulty, and the shadow alphabet was successfully completed. Then ensued a little conversation: “How far do you go,” spelled the shadow on the curtain. “Chicago,” answered the smaller hand. “Traveling alone!” “Alas, yes.” “How nice.” “Do yon go to Chicago!” “I believe I will.” “Are you a married lady!” asked the big hand. “Widow,” responded the little digits. Knox was in the seventh heaven as well as the upper bunk. “We will have breakfast together?” said the curtain. “With pleasure,” it replied. “Do you ever indulge in a nightcap!” asked the facetious shadow. “Never wear one,” answered the obtuse one. “I mean take a little nip.” “I couldn’t think of it.” "Sweet creature,” he thought, “she can’t he much over 20. All widows of 30 like a drop of rye.” ivnox had nearly sa wed his ear off on the side of the bunk by this time, but he was enjoying himself hugely. The widow be low was bewitchingly flavored with white rose. It came up in gusts once in awhile. A silver laugh also had gurgled several times, and Knox was as pleasod as Punch with his delightful adventure. In the midst of a sentence the moon went suddenly behind a cloud, and Knox uttered his first spoken words, “Ain’t that too bad!” and a whistled “Yes” floated hack to him. "Good-night.” Knox boldly lowered his hand. The widow’s reached it. This was simply delicious. The jolt of her car swayed their clasped hands. Knox was in elysium. Go to Chicago! Why, he’d have gone to Joppa. Bidding the enamored man a soft good night, and promising to lie punc tual for breakfast the widow pulled the white lace curtains, and after awhile Knox slept. It was broad daylight when the porter eame through dropping hoots in the differ ent sections. He made an unnecessary row in 15. Knox looked out and said “Hello," and then he wondered what the negro was thrashing about the lower bunk. “Is the lady out!” he a-sked. “Warn’t no lady there boss,” said the por ter. “I sposod they was, when I tole yer, but it seemed jest afore she wont to lied she fell in wif an ole lady wat had number 21 an’ a dude of a fellow, he had a ’arf o’ that section, an’ they got to talking, and jess swapped. I never dmpi>cd to it till the dude got off back 3‘cr to Spension Bridge, an’ I seen ’im a leavin’ number 15 just here under you.” Knox was agbßst. Was he awake? He rubbed his eyes, and as he rubbed them ho noticed that his ring wasjtone.
