A common saying, ''There's a one-eyed moil in the gaiae," meaning u-bout the same as "look out lor n cheat," has its origi>n in a story that lj�ai-s the stump of .truth. A littlv liame of draw was 'in pro-gi^s in Oil Springs, Cottnty ol Ijajiiibton, in 1863, and among its participants, was a onc-e^Td man. He was playing in rather remark.oibla luck; but no one couM very v.otl i-d in an overwlifiini'ng nwjcrity, more than toTj to one, ngainsil the -Vri, and ill favor oi' prohilMtion, which occ.ordiriij; to siaiuie, comes aiilo-matically into force.

In the year 1877-the lust >\ar in whicli licen.s.s were grunt-d 'in Charlottolown- there were T'JVt convictions for driiiilv-eniiesij. Forty-three licenses were that yeur gnuiit("d for the selling oi liquor, and no doubt theie were as mawn a croj) of classic stories passed down from year to year, ctiuiig'ing their location perhaps but preserving their main foatiiies. and losing' nothing of their at�traetive-iK'ss from uge.
