more than a question.鈥?
鈥淚s that right?鈥?
鈥淲ell, in 杭州足疗店都有什么服务 that case, it doesn鈥檛 seem to me that it should be a very hard case to get rid of him.鈥?
鈥淐rooks are not generally permitted in clubs for gentlemen.鈥?
鈥淏ut no one has been able to catch him.鈥?
鈥淥h; then it is not positively known that he is crooked?鈥?
鈥淲ell, I am confident that there is something peculiar about his 杭州按摩店在哪里 playing, and I鈥檓 not the only one who is confident. He wins right along.鈥?
鈥淣ever more than a few dollars, while he frequently wins several hundred at a sitting.鈥?
鈥淚t seems to me that catching a dishonest poker player should not be such a difficult thing out in this country.鈥?
鈥淲e鈥檝e had some of our cleverest card men watching him, and all have given it up. They say he may be crooked, but they can鈥檛 detect how he works the trick.鈥?
鈥淵ou stated, I believe, that he never plays in the 杭州足浴tykjmldl daytime.鈥?
鈥淗ave you noted any other peculiar thing about his playing?鈥?
鈥淣o, nothing unless鈥攗nless鈥斺€斺€?
鈥淯nless it is his style of wearing smoked glasses.鈥?
鈥淗e wears smoked glasses when he plays?鈥?
鈥淲ell, he claims the lights here hurt his eyes.鈥?
鈥淭hat seems a very good reason why 杭州SPA网 he should choose to play by day.鈥?
鈥淵es; but he always has an excuse when asked into a game in the daytime.鈥?
Merriwell鈥檚 face wore an expression of deep thought.
鈥淚t seems to have the elements of a Sherlock Holmes case,鈥?he finally remarked. 鈥淚鈥檇 like to be present when Darleton is playing. I think it is possible I might detect his trick, in case there is any trick about it.鈥?
鈥淎re you a card expert?鈥?
鈥淚 make no pretensions of being anything of the sort,鈥?answered Merry promptly. 鈥淪till I know something about the game of poker, and I did succeed in exposing card crooks, both at Fardale and at Yale.鈥?
Morton shook his head.
鈥淚 think I鈥檓 ordinarily shrewd in regard to cards,鈥?he said; 鈥渂ut I haven鈥檛 been able to find out his secret. I don鈥檛 believe you would have any success, Mr. Merriwell.鈥?
鈥淭here is no harm 杭州水疗spa in letting me try, is there?鈥?
鈥淭he only harm would be to arouse Darleton鈥檚 suspicion if he caught you rubbering at him. I know he has thought himself watched at various times.鈥?
鈥淟eave it to me,鈥?urged Frank. 鈥淚鈥檒l not arouse his suspicions.鈥?
鈥淏ut it won鈥檛 do a bit of good.鈥?
鈥淚f he is cheating, I鈥檒l detect him,鈥?asserted Merry, 杭州按摩红颜会所 finding that it was necessary to make a positive declaration of that sort, in order to move Morton.
Hugh looked at him incredulously.
鈥淵ou鈥檙e a dandy fencer, old man,鈥?he laughed; 鈥渂ut you mustn鈥檛 get a fancy that you鈥檙e just as clever at
everything. Still, as long as you are so insistent, I鈥檒l give you a trial. Meet me in the billiard room at eight o鈥檆lock this evening. Play seldom begins here before eight-thirty or nine.鈥
