In the Police Court at Auckland yesterday Frederick Garruthers, Joseph Davidson. and Reginald Simpson were charged with conspiring to defraud William Rowland Forbes. They reserved their defence, and were committed for trial. Forbes, who is a young man, went from the Poverty Bay district to .Auckland! to spend his holidays, and lost £l6 at a game of cards which was quite now to him and into which he was Initiated by the accused, one of whom he had met in the street and who had introduced him to • the others at a hovel. When the accused were arrested they were in possession of a considerable sum of money, and in a bag was a well-equipped '‘spieler’s outfit,” including a "roller sweat outfit”—one of those colored roller blocks that is rolled along a board marked in colored stripes. The roller was faked. They* also had a number of “crook” dice bored ready for the lead. There were several hazard dice with double sixes and doable fives for ringing the changes. The whole was the paraphernalia of spielers. LACK OP ENERGY. If you lack energy, don’t relish your food, feel dull and constipated- all you need is a doso of Chamberlain's Tablets. They will make you feel like a new man, and give you a healthy appetite. They will do you mom jjood than a 6s bottle of tonio.—£Advt.J
