THE, JOURNEY OF A CHECK. It Was for $ 1,000 and Left Bar Harbor in .august. .Yen: \ oi k 1 An hajipened in Bar Harbor last, ■pasou Which lias bean talked of in four cities sfeee the reuson closed. St. San veur, the unpretentious Episcopal chapel, i.' known to every one who lias vis ited that watering place. It is a missionary •'hapel, ;an<t is supported wholly hy contri butions. It has been the custom for the fashionable boarders each season to pi ve an entertainment, the prix-ceds of which are contributed towards the maintenance of the chapel. The entertainment last summer was the most brilliant and successful in many years. Mrs. George Vanderbilt con tributed a check for $250. Among the participants was Miss Elliott, of Philadelphia, a member of Trinity church ehoiri Bbe is a soloist of rare merit, and her richifoirc thrilled and enchained the hearers. The tweet voice of the singer, however, was destined to ring unpleasantly in the memory of some of the committee later on. A few days after the affair, when tho committee having it in charge held a meet ing;, it was learned that Mrs. Orville Hor witz. of Baltimore, had paid from the fund collected SSO for the services of Miss Elliott. This, it is said, gave rise to much discussion, which, however, was dropped when it was learned that Mrs Horwitz had sent a check for about SI,OOO to the church and it had been returned. A missionary chapel refuse suqh'nn amount! Was the remarkable sea air of Bar Harbor upsetting sanity instead of hearts i The little colony was dumb f&nded. vlnquiry explained this strange action by bn nging to light the fact that in inclosing the (•heck to the church Mi's. Horwitz. stipu lated that it should be used for the building of anew vestry-room. As the committee Of the chapel was simply charged with the Maintenance of the church services, after deliberation it was decided not to accept the check under these conditions, and it was 'returned. Before this time the usual doua jtion went to the maintenance of church ser vices and the general care of the chapel (throughout the yeßr, and the special r request, it is claimed, was an assumption of authority which circumstances did not war rant. It has even been claimed that as no one person raised tho whole amount, all of the committee, should there be any particular direction about tho money, should have a voice. Mrs. Horwitz, however, was firm in her deter mination to have the vestry-room, and as under that condition the chapel people would not have the money, the check still remained in her possession. So matters re mained until the close of the season, and one by one the families departed. Mi's. Hor witz and her also departed, and the check, with the shadow of anew vestry room between it and its conversion into cold cash, went with them. Mrs. Horwitz is well-known as a promo ter of charitable affairs, and is the daugh ter of the late Dr. Gross, of Philadelphia. She is an influential factor in the society of the Quaker City and Baltimore, the home of her husband, to which she removed after marriage. The check is in a state of innocuous desue tude, but though some people are disposed to gossip about it, others, who were parties in the affair, take a different view of the matter. A friend of the lady in this city said that a few weeks ago she wrote to Rec tor lx?fling well of the church asking his ad vice as to the disposition of the check, stating at the same time that it was depos ited. Dr. Lefßngwell wrote to David Ogden, of this city, who was chairman of the En tertainment Committee, and was advised to secure the check and apply its use to gen eral church purposes. Mr. Ogden said last night, “The matter is of no consequence whatever and is merely a misunderstanding. I believe that Mrs. Horwitz will appreciate our position and will send the check for the general purposes of the church. I feel no no anxiety about the matter whatever.” SMOKaNG by proxy. The Manner in Which Ira Tripp, of Scranton, Pa., Enjoys His Havana. Scranton (Fa.) Corr. to the Nero York Sun. Strangers in this city have often been led to wonder at the sight daily to be seen on the streets, of a tall, straight old man, with a flowing white beard that reaches almost to his waist, and snow-white hair, promenad ing in company with a young colored man who is constantly smoking, and who blows every puff of his cigar smoke straight into the face of the old man, who bends forward to receive it and inhales it eagerly with liis nose and mouth. The aged gentleman is Uncle Ira Tripp, the millionaire coal opera tor, and one of the oldest natives of the Lackawanna valley, being now over SO. The colored man is his valet, John. From boy hood until twenty years ago Ira Tripp was an inveterate smoker. He smoked the strongest and most expensive cigars he could buy. His health became greatly im paired when he was about 00, and his doc tor told him that he must either quit smok ing or die. Since then he has not had a cigar bet ween his lips, but has indulged his love for tobacco smoke by inhaling it from cigars spioked by others. For a time he took his proxy smokes by frequenting the company of smokers, and asking them to putf their sm' ke in his face, but the miscellaneous quality of the tobacco thus inhaled was not satisfactory. He then adopted the plan of carrying his own cigars, and presenting them to smokers on condition that they would give him the benefit of the smoke. Finally be hit on the plan of hiring a man to accompany him wherever he went, the man's only duty being to smoke a choice cigar and blow the smoke in his employer’s face. His present, smoker, the colored man John, has lieen with Uncle Ira for s -veral years, and the artistic way in which he manipulates his cigar smoke to the best ad vantage of his employer has made him in dispensable to the old gentleman. Uncle Ira, as he is known from one end of the Lacka wanna valley to the other, never goes out without Jobii, and the latter,is on duty as a smoker constantly duriug the eccentric millionaire’s waking hours. John has smoked an average of fifteen strong cigars every day for a number of years, it rev quij’mg that number to satisfy Uncle Ira’s longing for the fragrant smoko, but the ad vocates of the doctrine that tobacco is an insidious and deadly foe to health would find no part of their theory in the cuse of Ira Tripp’s John. He has grown fat on his persistent dalliance with the noxious nico tine; * Once, during the days when Unde Ira was peddling out his fragrant Havanas to twnokers in return for their puffs of smoke in his face, ljc was in New York. He stopped at, the old Merchants’ Hotel in Cort lamit, street, and, Having business up town, he bribed one of the guests of the hotel with a handful of Rein a Victorias to go with him und smoke tohimon fhetrip. The two men got on the platform of r Sixth avenue car. Uncle Ira’s companion prompt ly lit a cigar and blew cloud after cloud of smoke in the old man’s face. A ltenovnlent old lady sat in the car, and by anil by she was attracted by the sight of a young man smoking a cigar on the front platform, and deliberately puffing the smoke in the face of a white-whiskered, white-headed man, who seemed to tie defenseless against the indig nity thus imposed upon him. The benev olent old lady watched the proceeding for several blocks, her indignation becoming deeper at every puff of smoke that the im pudent young man cooly turned an 1 blew In the face of the meek and helpless veleran. At last she could stand it no longer. She arose from her seat and strode to the front door of the car, open and it. and, stepping out on the platform, seized the unmannerly smoker by the shoulder, turned him around with a savage jerk, knocked his cigar from his mouth, and berated him soundly for his despicable treatment of tho poor old mu n who was unable to escape from his perse culioa. To the surprise of the lady thepoot nnc! helpless old man raised up his voice in uproarious laughter, and when the true sit uation was explained to her she flounced back into the car and left it at the next cor ner. • A GREAT GAMS OF POKER. Two Hands Without Pairs Divide a Handsome Pot. From //i San Francisco Examiner. “Well, I’m going to leave you,” said Thomas J. Potter, Vice President and Gen eral Manager of the Union Pacific railroad, to several railroad officials in the Palace Hotel recently. “Anything wrong, Tom?” askedoueof his friends. “Well, yes; there is. 1 came out here partly on basinets and partly to meet J. C. Stubbs, but he is out of town and you can not imagine how greatly I am disappointed. If he would be back in any reasonable time I would stay. “I had a little game night before last and played even, but for the past year or two I have had a longing to get even with Stubbs. ” “Wouldn’t revenge on someone else satisfy you?” inquired a Northwestern man. “No, it’s not revenge that I want; it’s the rubber on the heat 1 played with stubbs. Have none of you heard of the game we played at the Transcontinental meeting held here two years agoi” “No,” was tho response from all. “You didn't. That’s strange. I thought Stubbs would toll it to every one.” “He only told us how he did you up,” ob served a Southern Pacific official. “Did me up? Did Stubbs tell you that? It would take a better man than Stubbs to do it,” remarked Mr. Potter in tones of of righteous indignation. “I’ll tell you how it was. When the meet ing adjourned, I proposed to Stuulis that we play a game of draw poker. Stubbs didn’t like the idea of a two-handed game ant suggested that we extend an Invitation to two others. I was with the Burlington road then, and just as Stubbs finished speaking. Traffic Manager Kimball of the Union Pacific came up, accompanied by the traffic manager of the Northern Pacific. These two agreed to play if we would knock off the limit, which was what we wanted. “As we went up to my room Stubbs winked at me, meaning we’ll do ’em up. “Chips were two and a half. From the first Stubbs showed an inclination to bluff. He took several good pots from me on pat hands that I don’t think were more than ace high. I lost about SIOO to him and was growing angry. I made up my mind to win something on a grand bluff. “Kimball and Hannaford played close and the only tvay to get even was to run against Stubbs. “Kimball dealt around at last and Stubbs made it ten cases to play. I bad only ace high, with a king and queen back of it. Now is my chance to bluff, I thought, and I raised the conie-in fifty. Kimball and Hannaford stayed out. “Stubbs looked at me for a time and then raised me a hundred. I saw this raise and then discarded. “ ‘How many cards do you want?’ Kim ball asked Stubbs. “The latter blushed and said he did not want any. "That blush decided me. I knew it was another bluff and.l drew two cards to my ace, king and queen. “Stubbs bet a hundred. “L raised him a hundred on an I O U. “Stubbs came back at. me with a raise of two hundred and I raised him back. “ ‘Potter, I don’t want to rob you,’ he said, ‘I have you beaten and you had better lay down.’ “His face was pale and his hand was trembling, and so was his voice when he spoke. "I laughed and said not by a —sight, and I went back to him with another I 0 U. “ ‘For heaven's sake, Potter, don’t get so rash,’ be advised me; ‘you’re beaten and why don't you lay down? I raise you two hun dred.’ “I thought Drobably be had something. I had not bettered my hand and began to take the matter seriously. “1 looked at my hand again and then called him. “ ‘The devil you do,’ said Stubbs, pale and frightened. “I have only ace high,’ he said. “ 'That’s what I have,’ said I. “ ‘Then I have you beaten,’ said Stubbs, throwing his hand on the table. ‘I have king and queen next.’ “ ‘Don’t he too certain of that,’ said I. ‘I have his majesiy and a lady myself.’ “ ‘Like you have,’ he said,"and his face once more w hitened. “That’s what I have,’ said I, ‘and here is a ten spot and a seven behind that.’ “ ‘For the Lord's sake, I have the same identical hand,’ he said. "I have played poker for the past twenty years, and I never saw two bauds like that before. We played no more that night, We divided the pot and called for the wine. “We have both been anxious to meet since, but whenever I come to the coast Stubbs is East or somewhere else. I will get to him some time, though. Well, let’s go and have something.” A CHANCE ACQUAINTANCE. An American's Experience Traveling Between Dover and Calais, From the Pittsburg Chronicle. “Monsieur is an American, I thinkf It is on the Calais boat. That Ready light off there is France. In a few hours we will be in Paris. The channel is as t*iooth as the Monongahela above the dam. (have no symptoms of the kind 1 have driaded, and lam in the best of humors. tall Frenchman is leaning on the railiig at my side, and ho has just asked me thelq.ies tion. I reply that, his surmise is I cor rect, and he says with a laugh: “Ah, then, of course, Monsieur is a millionaire as well.” “You are quite right,” savs I to |im. “You are a fearful liar,” says I to mysffi. “Monsieur is destined for our lieaimiful Paris, of course?” “Exactly. This Is my first visit, and Ido not speak French.” “Monsieur looks just as delighed as I {ex pected he would. I was evidently a tbit of mutton he intended for home consutiji tion. “Monsieur is perhaps from New York! “Not at all. Made a pile in bogs in Q)i cugo, and now I’ve struck a silver mines u Jersey.” “Monsieur is fortunate. He has, some friends with him?” “Not a aottl. All alone.” “Ah, is it ho! Perhaps my poor self wodii introduce Monsieur to some of the wondi of Paris.” He began to draw closer, and in a low|; tone said: “I can show him the many curious tUns. and—Monsieur will not betray inei” “Of course not.” “Perhaps Monsieur would like to buy some diamonds, some rubies, some iiearfe quietly from a friend of mine, vare clienf and there would be no duty to pay goin home.” “So that’s your little lay, Is it?” I remarl to myself. “I will just let you go on ani see what else you have to sell.” “Jolly smooth trip ray boy,” says an un mistakably English voice behind me, and turned to find my traveling companion atf. my back, eyeiug the diamond dealer with] suspicion. The Frenchman eyes the new; comer, then looks at me, and to save my-| self from annihilation I could not prevent a faint smile. Tho foreign element utters something which sounds soft and melodious, but which, no doubt, means something hard and molodorous, and off he goes. “What's that fellow up to?” inqutree my friend. “He is a rum one, he is. He’d cut your throat for a flve-franc piece." And so my little bit of contemplated amusement was knocked in the head, and my fortune made from hogs and the Jersey silver mino were left undeveloped in the hands of a mental assignee.
