News And Stories

Twenty-nix horses started In tho
Melbourne cu race on November 'i.
nnd the odds (Inured against them
by bookmakers ranged from 4 to 1
to 200 to 1. The first-named price
1 was laid against the favorite, Prince
'Foote, and, as he won easily by
threo lengths, a lnrge amount of
icash must hare found Its way Into
the pockets of the public,
Aberdeen, against whom odds of
100 to 1 were laid, finished In third
place, being only a head behind the
second horse, Alawa.
The race was, of course, run In
Melbourne, the capital of the state
of Victoria. It would be as sensi
ble to Btate that "the New York
races were run In San Francisco" as
to make the break the morning pa
per did today.
The Melbourne cup Is known alt
over the world, and Is the medium of
more betting than any other race on
earth. Hugh "consultations," I. e..
lotteries, are gotten up on the race,
and as generally Ave are being con
ducted at once, the amount of

noise, nnd, as they had promised
the owner of the gee gee that he
would get 150.000 It his rorse won,
they only had (100,000 to draw for

with a snort of surprise when he

Hut the strangest story of all In
connection with a Melbourne cup
sweep Is that of "the young1 bank
teller In a country branch who had
been dipping Into the bank's funds
till there seemed no chance of his
ever getting square.
The Inspector was due at the

and there was no chance of hiding
the embezzlement from that expert.
Ihe only hope the young fellow had
was that a ticket he had purchased
In the cup sweep would turn out to
be a winner and that the Inspector
would not .arrive before Nov. 3 the
day after the cup race.
Well, It was & close call, for the
bank clerk's ticket represented n
horse that won the race, and the
news, which reached him by tele'
