Like mnost of the other large eities.
Chicago bas an ordinance against pool
roonis and oithlir rnzlambling r.sorts. It
may ie well to xplain tihat a pool
room is not a placo where the luno
cent ganie of thei cue and halls is play
ed. but one where "pools," or bets, are
made on horse races. The Cook coun
ty poolroonis have had to lie very low
for some time, so one of the best
known operators has announced his
disgust at thie waty things are going
and has betaken bliniself and his gam
bling paraphlernalia neacross the line of
Cook county into Will county, just on
the south. Near Richton, which is
right on the county line, has been set
up a big, barnlike structure whichl is
the Mecca of Chicago gamblers and
which, its owner says, is to be the
Monte Carlo of America.
The building stands in a cornfleld
and is right on the tracks of the Illi
nols Central railroad, so that the sports
suffer little inconvenience in getting
where they can get rid of their money.
It stands on a hill which commands
a view of the aurrounding country.
This presumably is to detect the ap
proach of a shertif's posse or a lynch

Iavestigators and curlo-Ity seekers.

My dear, I will make you a confes

daughter disappear for a few weeks
every year, and they come back with
the bloom of roses In thein cheeks and
a generally rested air about them.
Well, this year I forced them to dl

As regarda Dr. Rikli, he believes
that a return to nature is a sure cure
for almost every disease.
He belleves that the blood must
each day be made to fall below and
rise above the normal temperature,
because all uniform action provokes
and Induces stagnation and paralysis
of the natural functions. The skin
must act and react, and for this there
are three condltions necessary:
First.-Exposure to rayp of light .
Becond. - Tension and -elaxation,
these latter to be produced by cold
and heat (perspiratlon).
Third.-The absolute cleansing of the
skin by water.
Of course, the fresh air treatment
at this time of the year Is slightly mod
Ified. It conslats principally of sun
baths In glass roofed chambers, but
in the spring, summer and early au
tumn the system is in full swing, and.
thanks to Mrm. Leland, I can teil you

white musalln, they walk to and fro on

marveled at the fact that a tempera

7 o'clock a frugal breakfast of honey,
bread and milk is served. At 9 every
one dresses, and a conple of hours ase

Rikll has put up a capital new large

with them. Of late this tendency has
beconc imore iuarketd. Many musl
cians promiinnt In their pnarticular lines
and whose nanmes are familiar through
out the whole United States have
found their way to this sequestered
nook, where quiet and repese appealed
to them on every side anid where the
outside world would not likely hutrude.
Franz Kuelsel, the well known vio
linist of the Knelsel Quartet and the
Boston Symphouy, who tirst visited
Blue HiI in the summer of 189l, has
just completed the purchase of a piece
of property enibracing upward of 40
acres at Parker's Point. on the out
skir of the village, and It is his In
tentfon to make his future summer
home here. Mr. Knelsel, at the time
of his original coming to Blue Hill,
rented the handsome cottage "La
Mascotte." overlooking the bay, and,
with his family, occupied it until fall.
A notable gathering of musical peo
ple at Blue HII resulted from Mr.
Knelsel's action. The other members
of the quartet-Karl Ondricek, the Bo
hemian vlolinist; Alwin Schroeder, the
cellist, and Louis Svecensli, the viola
player, together with Lotta Mills of
New York, pianist for the quartet
opent the summer months here In prep
aratlon for the winter .eason follow
Ing. Wilhelm Gericke, director of the
Boston Symphony orchestra, and H. E.
Krebblel. the critic and lecturer, were
guests of Mr. Knelsel for a short time.
The violinist's two pupils-Miss Bessie
BeU Collier of Cohasset, Masa., and
Miss Helen Farrell of Lawrence-came
to the Blue Hill Inn in order to contin
ue their studylng.
Mr. Knelsel's purchase is situated
along the coach road leading from Par
ker's Point to Brookline and Sedgwick.
The land adjoins the home of Wult
Fries, the venerable old cellist, who,
with Professor HilI, Instructor of mu
sic at Wellesley college, was the found
er of the Blue Hill musical colony.
A rare treat Is afforded the people of
Blue Hill when Wulf Fries plays at the
services in the Congregatlonalilst
church. The gray haed German,
whose magie bowing hasThnrmuied thou
aands of people, occuples a seat every
Sunday morning in the old fashioned
choir loft at the rear of the church,
and, despite his fourscore years, he
brings forth from his sonorous Instru
ment tones of surpasging beauty and
firmniness. A good story relative to
Wulf Fries' custom of playing in the
church is told by the menibers of the
congregation. During the suimmer of
199 a young man from New York city,
who assfmed to be au fait on matters
of musical erudi'ion, attended the Con
giegationni service in company with a
Blue IIllWriend. In the middle of the
opening hyvinn the knowing youiig (o
thamnite turned to his companion, say
ing: ";ooMness! Listen to that miser
able violin bnaek there in the gallery.

"Oli, thliat's only Wulf Fries playing
