In a recent statement Corbett con

St.' Lpuis, Mo'., May 13.—Two turf
men, knowa to-sportsmen throughout
the United .States, who recently died

confined his efforts almost entirely to

the largest realty owner in St.
Louis'and his fortune iwas estimated
at, considerably more -than 12,000,00u.
Well educated,, when a young, man, he
refused to accept financial- assistance
from his father and went io Kansas
City where he foupd. a job vtendlng bar
at .'the old railroad depot, one of th
wildest spots in the, west. After iv
year iu Kansas City he came to St.
Louis and in a short time opened a
saloon whlcjb was. the "hangout" 'of
every night prowler ih the city. Cella"
is said to have conducted a dice game
there which in three years netted him
$100,000, all acquired before he was
27 years old.
In 1896. he joined Sam Adler and C.

in race track promotion, the result be

so^hern cities. A poolroom operat

for eight years during which time the
promoters are said to have laid the
foundation ifor their collective flor
This venture led to others of a sim
ilar nature. "Bucket shops" were es
in downtown St.
Louis being said to bring its owner a:
profit of more than $2,000,000 annual
ly. The branches extended into every
large city, in the country.
Race Horses Helped'
Meanwhile Cella had become the
owner of numerous race horses which,
flying his colors, a^ded to: his for
tune. In 1904, however, racing within
the state was. prohibited and conse
quently betting was stopped. This
measure is safd to have cost the "C,
A. T." concern. $1,500,000 in a single
year. Cella -was destined for other
setbacks for about this time the gov'
ernment began an active campaign
against "bucketshops," the result be
ing Ills retirement'from that field of
activity! Losses from this course
werealso reckoned at ^Iv5u0,000 an
