JAS.   A.  SMART.  Deputy Minister of  the Interior.  Department  of the Interior, v  scs _ I was interested principally in  two woii'cn 'v.ho sat &iue by sule,  one of them mildly successful, the  other steadily losing. It was amusing to observe that the woman who  lost was amgry with the woman who  won, and not with the croupier wlK?  swept in her money, nor with herself lor being so foolish as to, j*lay.  Among those who lost was a joung.  gentleman with a typical Yanl ee  countenance and the tall, thin, strong  figure that matches with it I sympathised with him because he was a  fellow-countrymen _ and also because  he wvs a long way from home and  so might be the more seriously embarrassed by thc sort of indiscietion  which this place was built to cn-  ccirage. I observed   that his eye  was always on the wheel when the  ball was rolling, and that when it  fell in the wrong place he started as  with a spasm of pain  I had seen him lose about 200  francs upon the numbers 31, 32, 8cS,  when a veiy charming joung woninn,  simply drcs-sed and escoi ted by a  youth who looled as if he might be  ihe brother (>f the player, appioached  the table and addressed thc object of  my interest... He had no seat but  was reaching between two other  gamesters  to lay his Lets.  At the sound of the woman's voice  he straightened up, wilhdikrwing ihe  money, and turned lo speak to hei.  Their conversation was' surely no  business of mine, and i mo^cd aside  but I coulU not help hearing her Leg  him to come away. She was not insistent, and she veiled her anxiety  beneath some thin excuse  of a social  ft  duty he was neglecting, >ct the essence,of' "the affjir was obvious. 1  felt a strong desire to take tho youiig  man by the collar, and march him out  of the place, but the ctKqucrle of Monte Carlo forbids such help fiom man  to ���������-ummi . So I remained passive,  while- the croupier announced lhe  number .^2.  The young woman, whom I rightly  guessed to be the wile of the piayei,  turned.away,'-hiding considerable vcv-  lil'ionT.i She had'accomplished nothing  except that she 'had prcented her  husband from putting,down his money 'at a time when he would have  won. Though ��������� T , lelt thai any gains  lie might ,makc would only bawl him  more securely to the folly that could  have but one 'conclusion, 1 was so  full of human fiaiky as to Wish Hut*'  he might win. It was not possible  from where I stood to ,watch lhe  rolling ball' with any accuracy or to  get a notion whore it would fall, even iu the , very last instant, but i*c  was nearer and his face told me unmistakably when the infernal bit of  ivory narrowly, missed his numl/ers  In half an hour not'one of them had  won, and the ' croupier had changui  lhe last of the notes from ihe snuil  roll which hart been tightly elinctii.'.!  iu the yoking man's lelt. hand. His  hist supply of ,5 franc pieces quietly  \anish\Al, and lie began to bet pcui  monnaie fiom his pockets. Jic had a  surprising 'quantity ot _^siher, and  whenever I fancied he had come to  the end of it he would thrust a nervous hand into anothei pocket and  bring forth the value ol anoter wager.  1 think, however, that his very  last fi\e Iranc picte was on the board  when the croupier called 32. The  young man had ui on this number nie  value of one dollar, the. smallest  sum that may he Let at .Monte Catlo  When the bet had 1 een ifaid, he had  SS0 fiancs, or 3G d *.liars. With this  oncouiaglment lie laid down his mofi-  ey more liberally, and alintst immediately won again upon 31.  Then I could see in his eyes that  hope was alive in him It. seems al-  always seems so natural that fate  should relent.' Thc element of nity  in a human heaiCUs always shocked  by the j,ru<ality of chance and is Veiy slow lo bclie\'c that thc ultimate  intention can be had. It may ha\c  seamed only fan to this young gentleman that he should have a turn of  luck upon his last ^un and should  win enough to leconipense him foi  his .sufferings. Tie wiped the sweat,  from his brow and went iiilo J he silly struggle with anew courage.  ���������But the little ivory Lull that cared  nothing for him or for liis sacred ob-'  ligationsto hi.s wife, refused to perform the small service that was requisite. Instead if tantalized him by  falling into 17, which is on one wide  of 32, and then into 20, which is on  the other side of it. And; 1 could  see the poor fellow's heart leap in  his bosom.  Watching Ibis performance. I got  my first comprehension of what the  gainflHing passion is, .which has for',  its basis a fatuous pugnacity; an  aimless agonizing resistance to an  impllacaMo foe. At the outset I  wished this man, to stop pilayin,!;. I  knew that he was doing a foolish  thing- At the last, T merely wished  him to win, and I saw his icoiu dwindle with no . more rational feeling  than sorrow and wrath .that he must  stop, give up, go away beaten.  I  remembered   hearing  that  an   En.  , giish    noiliieman,     Lord      Arrelsford,  j'whose   wealth had been a byword on  the   continent;since the rctcnt death  of his uncle: had    won 45,000  francs  ^-H*^*4-*4-H^~M**-M-***4-^^^^  T  !
