General Ryan's Conundrum Didn't Bother 'the Irishman For a Moment. One of General Ryan's peculiarities is that he never tells the same story to the same man a second time. Not long ago he was talking abont his travels in the United Kingdom. 'Jihad always thought," said he, "that the famous Irish wit and repartee were only to be found on the stage or in Lever's novels, but I came away from Ireland with a very different idea. "I was stopping at a little country inn, and a game of cards was in progress. I was invited to take a hand, and as an Americanized Irishman I thought I ought to keep up the reputation of the country for sociability. I asked what they were playing, and they replied •Forty-five,' an old time Irish game. I told them that I barely knew the rules, but that I could^play seven up, euohre or nearly any other'American card game. But they insisted on my taking a hand, and I did so. One of the pages, who was standing at the back of my chair, watched my hand pretty closely, and the first time.I made abad play he said, sottp voce; 'Holy Moses, I niver see auoh a play in me loife. I wonder phwere the divil the mon cum from.' I paid no attention to him, of course, and went on with the game. The next time I made a bod play, and it wasn't very long, he again said, talking to him self, 'Bedad, niver did I see a mon play the loikea of that.' I began to be an noyed, but still I said nothing, although a m^ never likes to hear it said that he plays a game badly, but tbe man was talking to himself and meant no harm. However, when he broke out the third time I could contain myself no longer, I turned around and paid, "I^ook here, my friend, are you playing ^beie cards, or am I? 1 Tbe Irishman looked at me for a moment, and then said, 'Nayther wr w, yow honor, savin your prisinoe, sor.' "I joined the rest of them in the laugh, andsaia, 'Well, hoys, order up; Legal Blanks that puts Tribune. 'em on me. M woinoinn,ati the Sresb tbs J, ff, WAP8WOPS WiU new raft ,..,., lay tejt |o?
