In it he pravo «impies ot every, variety of bill Urda, c\rn of the haxaril game, though he did lint exploit, this lo any extent. n_% waa heartily applauded. Lind rum Kept to the top of the table throughout. In a two-century break he proved how -Hoc. th ely th. "postman'** k»--k" cannon, in combination with the red winner, can be «-led at "pot-end play.
