A Cfmptor <m In view of llie facl of Ihe establishment of a jenuino club in our city, the following chaplei n draw poker may be useful to the unini- iated DRAW rOKRK AS A DISEASE. Draw poker is a must fascinating yet dcceiv- ng game. One of Ihe peculiarities of Ihe game s that the beginner, as soon as he finds oul one certain kind of a hand beats another, lhat a binIV, if successful, bents any band hihks he can play Ihe game better than any nan. If he holds a ptit'i hand oifce, and bets )ig on it anil scares out an old veteran, when e r.ikcs in the money he cocks hip; hal on one side and thinks how ricli he might have lave been if he hud learned to play poker be- 'ure. lie wonders why everybody docs not ijive up business and poker and get rich. As he counts over the chips he has won so easily by a simple display of nerve, he says to imsel': "This game is good for yours truly. Henceforth hard work and me will dis- e partnership." lie keeps on playing. When he wins his hat is cocked on one side ind when he loses he wears it straight. At first il is on one side most of the lime, then le gets to went1 it straight prelly fnujiicnt un- til he loses every dollar he has got nnd goes and clubs himself. Countiymcn who think they can play a pretty good game! of puker id themselves ia large cities, and they are not contented till get into a eame, and nine times oul often they get so everlastingly scooped that they cant tell their own names lill they Uiok at it pnslud on ihe inside of their hats. However good a man pluys, there is always some one lhal plays better, and they are always laying for a fellow lhat can1! play as well as they ran, while the countryman is always laying for some one that can phiy betr, ler. There is no game better calculated lake the conceit oul of a man than poker. We have had it taken out of us seventy-five dol- lars' worlh by a cuss that didn't seem to know half as much as we did.

Chilli Wln> Snw It TblUlie llor Tlio Spectacle Seon in 1'runco'lu 1H2-I. Troy, March 6. Rev. Peter IluveY- mans is Ihe pastor of St. Mary's church, which is the richest Roman Catholic congre- gation in (his city. He was ordaineil in the priesthood over half a cenlury ngo. A corres- pondent of the Sun called upon the nged cler- gyman this evening to oblain his opinion of the alleged apparition of the Virgin Mary at the Jones domicile in this city. Father llnv- erimns said that yesterday aflernooii Annie Maloney, aged fourteen years, who lives in the Jones house, called on him ami asked what she ought lo do.wlicn people told her not loi them, my replied the priest, '-but tell ihe truth at all times." "That is what I answered the child, "and I will tell you what I saw. I know, father, thai I saw Ihe Blessed Virgin at house where 1 live, in the rear of 300 First s reel. I saw it first and told tlie others. I. began to tell about it outside, and I was told lhal I must not do so." Father Hnvermans did not wish to give an npini'Mi of the alleged apparition of the Virgin ul Mr. Jones' house, but said il was possible lhat what the Maloney girl had said wns true. She svas might be his parish, and he had not made any investi- gation. "I he added, "a. miracle is ns liable to happen here as elsewhere. I am .not a skeptic; but I remember an apparition which was witnessed by thousands besides myself. It was while I was a student at Poitiers" -in France, on the jubilee of Leo XII., in 1824.' When the services were about to commence at midday, a cross, apparently two hundred leet high, waved over the edifice and remain- ed for nearly an hour. This wonderful spec- tacle was discussed by the press, and the name ol the structure was changed lo the Church of the Holy Cross. On the occasion of my recent visit to Kurope I saw a man who had been a paralytic who was instantly cured by a visit to Knock Chapel, in Ireland. The church is very reluctant y> move in these mailers, and in fact, discountenances them, and up lo this time the alleged miracles at Kriock hnve not received the approval of the church. Whether anything will be done in this case I ilo not know, but i( is vviitrn the province of the bishop of llie diocese appoint a committee of investigation." The excitement ihe alleged npparition does nol diminish. At live this afternoon U is estimated lhat there were over five hundred persons in the neighborhood of the Jones 'resi- dence, but only a favored few were admitted. [New York Sun.
