A reporter for the Journal who had been
told that he could not buy lottery or
policy tickets In Kansas City had stnrted
down Main street to see Jint what he
could buy. Ho did find highwaymen's out
fits ns easy to buy as policy tickets. They
were conspicuously displayed In several
hop windows tmd adxertlsed for sale by
nttraeuxo looking placards. One pawn
hop window contained by actual count
fifteen metal knuckles, ten billies, four
and a rouse et nolr table. These were pub.
Holy displayed for sale despite a section of
the city ordinances which forbids tho pine
Ini; of any gnmbllnir device on exhibition.
At this place a reporter entered and asked
If any flrst'clas crap dice were for sale.
"cluos you must want to do some crap
frame," said the clerk, who tossed out sev
eral of the Ivory cubes upon a glass case,
"ou want 'horses,' don't you?"
"Vess we've cot horse dice here that
can't be beat. They'll win out every time.
iou hold 'em out, ou know, and when you
cct a chance to switch them for the roRii
lar dice In n came, all you've got to do U
to rlnc them In."
"Yes. Hold out the other dice and put In

you xo got n chance to win out good money.'

better spellers and wilteis of them, lie
