In one corner of the saloon may be seen a roulette table; in another, a backgammon board, with dioe-boxes and cubes appertaining - not used for the simple, innocent game which the light leathern case with its chequered cover represents, but in the dead naked throwing of dice - doubloons, or dollars, changing hands at every throw.
