There whs only one Incident to ruffle

above thn field about i"00 feet In the

thn parade of pontes Juat before the

bling a big bouquet of flowers that
landed almost aquarely In the mtddlo

enough, despite the fact that the avia
tor had boldly cast air ethics to the
winds by flying overhead tho standees.

But the r.rowd was there to see polo
and not to see aeroplanes frighten po
nies, which thn loud roaring machine
surely did. even during the parade. And
the aviator came back and back later
on during thn tensest moments of the
Kiime and flew across thn players end
crowds In a way that caused ex'ery
body to wish things on flier and ma

Closed Cars of Superior Design
There is a growing tendency, which is shown
very strikingly by our statistics, towards the use of
closed bodies either the limousine or landaulet

The added comfort of the soft cloth upholstery,
the protection from dusty highways and sudden
showers, are some of the factors which have caused
this change from the open body. A smooth run

requisite, and that we furnish in our shaft driven

Needless to say nobody Is going to
know how much was won by surprised
backers of the American four nt the
International polo game at Meadow
Brook yesterday, most of whom got
odds. But there Is no doubt ut nil that
people wero much less afraid to talk
about odds and even their bets yes
terday than ut llclmnnt when raelnir
was resumed thero on Decoration Day.
The betting la almost all on the litis I
outcome, not on it slngln giune.
There were IMnkertons aplenty around
stands and standees yesterday. Never
theless one might hear excited talk
about odds on all sides, nnd even the
details of the speaker's personal bets.
Nothing happened, however.
Before the mishap to I-'oxball ICeene,
which resulted In the veteran "Hlg
Four" taking the place of the Keeno
four, the odds prevailing among these
bettors of a week ago were three to
one on Kngisnd. With the selection of
the "Big Four" the odds on thn Eng
lish came tumbling down until by Mon
day night they were ten to eight.
When the grand stands began to fill
up yesterday there were many on hand
ready to bet even money on the Ameri
can team. But with the winning of tho
first game by America It goes without
saying that the ten to eight odds on
England went Into thn discard.
NUMBERS ON SADDLE CLOTHS.

The practice of placing on the raddle
cloths of the polo ponies at Meadow
Hrook yesterday, nt least so far bs the
English four were concerned, big white
numbers corresponding to the numbers
of the players was nn Innovation In
International polo games here. The
numbers that enabled spectators to
learn by a glance at their programmes
who was who on the English team at
born no numbers
Hut once the game got under way
there were disappointed sighs of
"What's the use?" In the change of
mounts the Englishmen often clambered
aboard a fresh pony which liore a num
ber that didn't belong to the plaver.
The numbering stunt, however, often
came In handy despite occasional draw
backs, and there wero general expres
sions of hope that all eight players at
Saturday's game would wear numbers,

Increase Since January 1st
This familiar card, shown tn all of oar oftcs throaghoat the Ctty,
with Its number Inert ting every day, tells the story of telephone growth
in New York City. We are now adding to the system an average ot 125
telephones each day. In twenty years we have added more than 488,000
telephones. The following table shows in steps of five years each, how we
have grown t
1893 - 14,253 Telephones.
1898 - 29,904
1903 - 117,345
1908 - 308,705
Today - 502,076 Telephones.
THIS great increase in the number of telephones has
been made possible by foresight in providing telephone
plant and equipment more than adequate to keep pace
with the publio needs. We plan twenty years in ad
vance so that the public is never compelled to wait
while our traffic problems are being solved
A rational and logical rate plan, by which charges for tele
phone service are distributed with equity among the several
classes of users has contributed to this splendid growth. As a
subscriber's use of the telephone grows, the plan provides
easy stages for the increase in his telephone equipment
The unusually large proportion of telephones in New York
City connected to Individual Lines and Private Branch Ex
changes, promotes the efficiency of the service, as this class of
equipment is better adapted to the heavy traffic of the city than
are Party Lines.
Th everyday asefalness and popularity of the Mrvice
Is dm in no small mssur to the fact that no matter how
heavy the demands upon the service may be, it is quick
and reliable at all times.

Still "Bis- Four."
Capt. Vivian I.ockett, the back of
tho English four, said after the game
"I am surprised at the completeness
of the American victory. We wero led
to believe that our ponies were much
faster than those nt the command of the
defenders, but. speaking for myself, I
found It very difficult to keep pace with
the splendidly conditioned animals on
which tho American forwards worn
mounted. My pony was extended to Its
limit and this made It particularly diffi
cult to back tho well directed shots of
the Waterbury brothers.
"The dazzling swiftness of the Ameri
cans at the opening of the game took
us off our guard and proved that the
American team Is still entitled to tho
designation of 'Hlg Pour.' There Is
hopo, owing to the closeness of the
play In the. final half, that thn next
game may turn In our favor. We ex
tremely regret the accident to Motto
Waterbury, who was playing brilliantly
at the time, and hope thnt It will not
havo a serious effect on our opponents."
