Bat vny* Brvrr to play l»f oth TT was not hazard as George IV had known it, or Charles James •'ox, but it was Charity's version :nd Duke Rogers was satisfied, 'rom his point ol view the rules vere not important so long as it vas clear what constituted losing. As soon as she had resolved to iccept Angel's mocking invitation to try her luck at gambling, Charty had determined her course of liay. "Seven's my friend," Douglas lad declared: she would always :hoose seven as tier mam. That. ;he reminded Duke, made 11 her lick. He nodded and repeated patently: "Seven or 11 you win rabs you lose, anything else is a lew point/' "Chance," Charity reminded him ^weelly. and rolJed the dice. During the first hour or so the ;ystem worked only moderately well, though she did win a Little "You like seven, ma'am?" Chanty looked around. Beside 'her was the impertinent stranger who had interrupted her conversation with Angel. "Yes," she said shortly. He was persistent. "Always pick it?" "Yes," she admitted and turned the game. A few minutes later the dice rolled within his reach. He picked them up, "For luck." he explained and suit on them. "Disgusting," Charity told her;elf, as with obvious distaste, she etrieved the dice Then, running nto a phenomenal streak of gooa ortune sh« forgot both ner squeamishness ovei the polluted dice and the stranger. Not once did the aces or the deuce-ace, Ihe dreaded crabs, appear Only sevens. Emboldened by her luck she* ncreased the stakes. Duke Rogers smiled indulgently, even Angel nurmured encouragement. Her $400 grew to more than $1200. The other patrons abandoned -heir games to watch. It was exciting but nerve-racking, and to a StanriJsh from Ohio embarrassing. Charity resolved to end the Business. She shoved everything to the middle ol the table. Duke picked up the dice rattled tl'.c-m absent)?. "You nerve, ma'am." handed them back. said, as W7ITKOUT replying Charity threw. One cube turned up an ace. the other rolled lazily. "Six." Charity prayed. The dice stopped. It was a one. The stranger swore softly. Charity did not hear him. Duke swept away money and dice. She had been foolishly certain that she would win, Reluctantly she turned away from the table. "You won't quit on account of one bad throw, will you?" Duke asked. "I have nothing left with which to play." "I'll trust you." She hesitated. It was one thing to work as a chamber maid until she saved enough to get home, or, at worst until next quarter's come was due; it was another to get into debt. On the other hand, except for the last cast she had been very lucky. "For how much?" she asked. He shrugged. "Must have been around $2500 in there; ^ how about letting ,ride2" "But if 1 lost 1 couldn'1 pay.* "I'd be willing to wait, That \t you'd stay around here, where I'd know where to lind you." "Don't be a fool," the young man beside her said; and at the lame moment Angel laughed- This wns too much for Charity. Like most people she war foolish when she lost her temper. "Thank you. 1 can care for myself," she lold the strangei To Duke Roger.* she said: "Give me the dice. One roll for S2500." "What's your main?" "Seven." The stranger sighed, "First, jusi to make it took right. sign this," Duke suggested. He scribbled on a piece of papei which he shoved towa her. li was an acknowledgment of indebtedness for $2500. Rogers knew that :n court it was worthless, bui the girJ might not be so learneci in the law, m which case it woulo be a'useful adjunct to his courting After a moment's hesitation Charily signed, casting a defiant glance at the impertinent stranger as she did so. She saw that he was grinning, oul AngeJ. u'ht/ knew 1 him better, disregarded the Erin ana watched the cold gray eyes. OOCKHS gave Charily the dice She threw and shut her eyes She heard a sigh from the spec tutors crowding around the table She opened her eyes, and saw th' double ace, "Bagged." Duke Rogers tola himself exultantly ami bclorc picking up the dice wasted a precious second running a praclireo eye over Charity. As a consequence when he did reach oui 11 was too lale Another hand with quick strong fingers was before him. It scooped up the dice. Rogers controlled himself with difficulty. "What's"the idea?" he asked. The stranger held the cube; En the palm ot his hand, where he rolled them gently. "PU bet S1000 I can throw tht double ace." he said, "You're crazy." "Does sound like it. considering what the odds againsi the double ace are. but I'll net."
