Transcription

Man: I've seen many a game of Faro but nothing like that game. Why he wins on every turn of the cards. Go and see for yourself! Hank must be at least $10,000.00 hared.
Mr. Bunion: I think I will go in myself and see a game of Faro, if there's anybody winning.
/
Man #2: Well, that's the time you lost, Hank. Ah, ha!
Hank: Oh! I don't expect to win every time!
Mr. Bunion: Huh! He lost.
/
Man #2: You lose again! Hank, lost again.
Hank: I am not worrying. Put a hundred on the seven.
Mr. Bunion: Gosh! A hundred
/
Man #2: You lose! Hank your luck is going back on you.
Hank: I'll get it back for a hundred if you say so.
Mr. Bunion: He's a true sport.
/
Man #2: Well! You've lost it! I tell you your luck is changing.
Hank: Never mind! Put this thousand on the Ace, Coppered!
Mr. Bunion: Gee Whizz! Look!
/
Man #2: Nothing to it. You lose again, play cards!
Hank: There's a Jonah around some place, sure!
Mr. Bunion: He's almost flat broke.
/
Man #2: A Jonah? I should say so. Look behind you. Who's your friend?
Hank: No wonder I'm losing. Are you there?
Mr. Bunion: Do I disturb you, sir?
/
Hank: Do you! Well, I should say so! You Jonah me! Get out! Get away!
Mr. Bunion: I beg your pardon.
