THE BALL A WD BO SB GAME; Showing how the Texas Farmer wi? Swin dled. In our edition of Saturday we noticed the commitment of one Qelpi on a charge of hav i ig been concerned in a financial operation by which a Texan farmer named Caruthers was swindled out of *625. Tbe case deserves something more than a passing notice, for while the arts of the swindlers were extremely discreditable to human naturo, the innocent rerdancy of the Texan farmer was a refresh ingoasis in a desert of rascality Wo shall give the Texan's story, as he de tailed it before the Recorder, as nearly in his own wntds as possible. "You see,'' observed Mr. Caruthers," I live over in Grayson county, Texas, and have been to Tennessee te get some niggers. When I got back to Orleans I thought I'd stop awhile, for I've been sickly of late anddid'nt feel able to travel farther. Besides, I wanted to buy some groceries and other things. On Friday last, feeling a little better, I went down to the steamboat landin' to inquire the price if freights and passages, ami sec about things generally. When I got on the v.harf I saw a very kind, genteel looking man sittin' on some corn sacks, so I passed the time o day, and fcelin' kind o'tired sat down too. w The stranger asked me which way I was goin', and I told him I was goin' aboard to see the captain about a passage to Texas " Ho says, it's no use goin' for the captain is ashore, up to the agent's. I was aboard myself just now, says he, to see about a pas sage. " I then asked him if he was goin' to Tex as and te says, yes, says ho, I'm goin' over thereto buy a location to set up a big tan nory. "And so we talked on for a while about Texas and things that way. and be began to tell me about a new bomb that he had invent ed that ho expected to get a patent for, and j make a fortin out on it He said the bomb was filled with a new kind of combustible, and went off itself by percussion and would mnko tremendous slaughter among the ene my." [Great laughter, in which the Recorder joined.] ' "After he was done tellin' about tbe bomb, I he a?ked if I would nt walk up to the agent's I to see about the passage, and I mid I would So we walked up and passed by tbe buildin I just over there, (tbe City Hull) and he says to I me?that's the Lr.ion Bank ; I've got a oheek I on that bank for $1,300, but I can t draw the I money to-day for its Good Friday, and the I Catholics here are so superstitious that they I shut up the banks on Good Fridays and won t I do anything. " I told him it did seem strange that people I would bo so superstitious, and he said he I hoped that people would, by and by, get their I eyes open to sacred things aiHl do better, and I I agreed with him " After a while we came to a little dark I sort of a house, at the corner of two streets. I with a screen inside of the door. We went I in and there was a man behind a little coun- I ter, where there wcro two barrels and some I black bottles "Tbe man that was with me asked if the I agent was in, and the man behind the counter I (the prisoner at the bar) called a boy from a I little place in the back part of the room, cur- I tained tff, and tild him to go and call the I agent. "Well, the boy went out and soon after I wards returned and said the ag. nt would be I there in five minutes. I thought that the I place was a rather shabby one tor the agent I of big steamship lines to keep his office in, but I as I didn't know much about the ways of city I life I didn't say anything* " In a few minutes the man who called him- I self the agent, camc in, and seemed as free, I and pleasant, and polite as can be. lie had I a little black ball in his hand, and says he to 1 the stranger I met on the levee, says h*. old I fellow, y?-u have been inventing a bomb, but I I've got a ball here that'll pustleyou. Then I he laid the ball down on the counter, and I says he, there's a secret about that ball; it can I be opened, but there isn't one in fifty thou- I sand that could do it. "0 pshaw says the bomb man. "The ball man thon said he wanted to step I out for a moment, and while he was gone tie I bomb man took up the ball, and, after exam- I inin' it for a whilo, be says, I see how to open I this ball, and he took his knife and gave it a I little tap, and out started a little piece like a | t'iimble, which, I vc heard since, is called tbe I little joker. Oa ' says he, here is a little piece I of paper, and so he took the little piece of pa- I per out, and bad a good laugh Now, say s he, I we'll get the drinks out of the agent whsn ho I comes in, for he'll bet the paper s in the ball, I and we'll bet it isn't I told him I didn't 1 drink anything, but he said we'll have some I fun anyhow. " Woll, when the agent came in they got a I talkin about tbe ball, and a bettin', and I I didn't say nothin' for fear of gettin' into trou- I ble, though I felt like tellin1 tbe agent that I the paper had been taken out. At last the I bet ran up to a thousan dollar, and the bomb I man threw down his check and atked for I chango. The ball man, however, made some I objection, and the bomb man say to me, <juit? I familiar-like: "old fellow, can't you let's I have an advance on this check till the bank opens to-morrow ?" 1 " I thought it was all light, and as I had I had a good deal of trouble takin' care of my 1 gold, I says yes?for I'd sooner have the check 1 than the money, because it was easier to take care of [Laughter ] And so I gave him what I what money 1 had, which was $625, aud be gim me the check for security. i " Then the ball was opened- out came the little joker, and lo and behold! there was a piece of paper in it! ... ! The bomb man looked surprised, but the I agent gathered up the stakes, placed tbe I money and the little joker in his pocket, and I put! I "The bomb man then wanted to take tho check, but I says, no; I must keep that for I my security. He, however, started out with It, and began to cry, and said that half of tte check belonged to bis mother, and asked me if I wouldn't bear half of the loss. I Urtd him no?that I had nothing to do with the bettin ; didn't understand it, and could'nt bear the loss. I wasn't that kind of a man " Well, he made a very bad mouth, but at last he went back with me to tho placa where tho bet was made, and I agreed to loose I and he wrote an order on the back of the check for tiie bank to pay me the balance And so we parted. I " After that I went to the merchant where 1 was buying my things and showed him the check, but ne pronounced it a fraud, and said I had been swindled I then went and showed him the place where tho swindle was dote, and ho bad the prisoner arrested, and the boy there, who said it was tho boss that did tbo cheatin'." The remainder of the story is easily told Neither the bomb man nor the spurious agent have been arrested, but the keeper of the es tablishment where the ball and bomb perform ance camc off, has been committed for trial as an accessory. As to tbe spurious check, it was in favor of John E Minor, and purported to be signed by Wiley Fairbanks & Brother. This is but one of tho transactions by which the old Texan has been swindled sinoe his ar rival in this city, for previously a brass watch had been palmed on him by a "stuffer" as the best of gold, and a less of $100 was the re sult. W e give a history of tbe case in order that the unsuspecting may be taught to be ware of newly invented balls and bombs, n. O?
