Layers of odds at the race track are
prone to circulate tales of their enor
moUS losses upon certain races, but it
is seldom that a loss on a run may be
shOwn, for it has been figured by ex
perts that a skillful layer makes a
book showing a percentage of 25 in
his favor, by which he is bound to
retain at least one-fourth of his tak
ings. Large losses happen occasion
ally when an unexpected victory
pays 40 or 50 to 1, but. as, a general
thing,. unless the bookmaker deliber
ately gambles with chance he "makes
books" so that he will show a profit
on each race. A skillful bookie can
so manipulate the odds that at no
point does he stand to lose on a race.
and, like his brother of the gambling
house, his profit lies in this percentage
in his favor. Even where gambling
games are run without recourse to
fraud the odds in favor of the dealer
are never less than 20 per cent.
A Judicious Inquiry.
A well known traveling man who vis
its the drug trade says he has often
heard druggists inquire of customers
who asked for a cough medicine,wheth
er it was wanted for a child or for an
adult, and if for a child they almost in
variably .recommended Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy. The reason for this
is that they know there is no danger
from it and that it always cuues. There
is not the least danger in giving it, and
for coughs, colds and croup it is unsur
passed. For sale by The R. B. Loryea

The Game of Whist.
Whist Is thought to be of English
origin and a development of the game
trump, or triumph, which was played
In England In the time of Henry VIII.
Whist was not mentioned by Shake
speare or the writers of his day. Its
earliest record Is in the poems of Tay
lor, the- water poet (1621). It is spoken
of in the second edition (1680) of Cot
ton's "Complest Gamester" as "the
game of whist, so called from the si
lence fhat is to be observed in the
play," but as whisk seems to have been
its originaf name, according to some
authorities, this derivation Is not as
sured. The game was at first nine up.
This was changed to ten up early In
the eighteenth century, and in 1864
the experiment of dividing the game
Into half, which was first tried as early
as 1785, was generally adopted by the
