mingled freely In tho stormy eo-
cloty of an epic ago but with tho
exception of an inordinate lure
that gambling held for him his
faults were few and ho was a gen-

gether. But hardened gamble
though some of them had boon In
their bygone years they tearfully
hesitated in tho solemnity of tho
'Then" exclaimed the dying man.
"Death and I shall play until the
Tho ruling passion of a lifetime
still held undisputed dominion.
They gavo him his well worn
deok of cards.
"I'll wager you Death $10 that
you take mo this time."
"I'll make it $20 that you es-
cape mo" Death was talking
Walker explained in delirium.
Outside tho wintry winds
moaned through the cedars but
only the ticking of the clock toll-
ing tho last fleeting seconds of an
ebbing life fitlrred tho sepulchral
Soon the silonco was broken by
an almost inarticulate whisper
"Death does take me and I win"
Tho clock struck the midnight
hour Just as the veteran gambler
lifted tho mystic curtain and
peored through tha palo portal of
shades his last great gamble with
