RAFFLES TO JUDGE WOMEN IN PARADE WILL WATCH AUTOS FROM LINE OF MARCH Man of Mystery Will Attend Baseball Game at Chutes and Give Fans ■ Chance at That Thousand (Conttnntd from Fn*;e On«) t b n d T was In Chicago last summer I feel that It Is up to me and I'll officiate to the best of my ability Although I may lncurI Incur the disfavor of th© other mem bers of the fair sex ho do not receive the season pass which the Angel City club Is to present to the lady whom I name, I Say, Perry, you might as well send mcm me along a past also and I'll see If I can work it on . your gate men on Saturday as I go into the grounds. But don't .make it out In my name though. They might catch on. Plays with Auto Dealer* I am giving you all this bee.vise I «. an t ynii in c> i .iftor me in earnest and not with the idea that I am "ncif to trick you into working overtime in a fruitless chase. Some person in this City will be richer by a large wad of bills before I leave here and it will be up to tho man. woman or child who takes this tip and goes after me on legitimate lines to collect the money. I told you in yesterdays story that I Would go after another bunch of busi ness men during the day— and I did. For two hours I worked in and among the offices of your automobile dealers. asking all sorts of foolish questions, getting cards and catalogs and in sev eral Instances the very names of the men I talked with. They were all well up on the matter of automobiles, but when It devolved Itself to penetrating the incognito I assumed, there was simply "nothln" During the afternoon. Just for exer- ! else, I strolled for two hours along Broadway, Spring and Main streets, looking the ground over for another, midday meeting place in the near j future. I saw about a dozen of those I with whom I have talked during the j past fow days, but they all passed me ! by, without so much as a nod. Strange, Isn't IT? I had half a notion to take a chance with Captain H. D. Ryus down at the White garage during the morning, but) Captain Ryus is a fairly Foxy Quiller. j and I decided to wait a bit before really | going after him. By the way, Cap.. I'M still waiting to hear what you have to say about taking a chance, such as I may want to take with your big POPE-HART FORD touring car In the course of the next few days. Of course If you haven't anybody on tap who can operate the car skillfully we will for get it, as I will need about the best chauffeur In this country to tackle what I have now In mind. Let me hear from you — I'm getting anxious. If any one ran tell me how I man aged to get through this little bunch of "wise ones" yesterday I would like to bear some one say something. Just as a starter I went after a tall, smooth faced, light complexioned man, wearing a gray suit and black derby hat, who was In charge of the Superior ' Auto company's store at No. 130 East > Ninth street, where I managed to get a i rise out of him by asking whether he had a garage for the storage of Haynes automobiles. Ab an answer this chap handed me his card, which I noted bore his name, "E. W. SEHRING," declaring at the same time that if my brother's ma chine arrived in Los Angeles he would send his man down to the car and as sist In the unloading. Never Suspect Raffles At the Standard Motor Car com pany's plant. No. 118 East Ninth street, I related at iensrth to a young lady stenographer, whom I discovered in charge of the office, that I had four FORD automobiles which I wanted stored for the summer, which brought forth the information that if I sent the machines over they would be well taken care of. A short, lipht complexioned, smooth faced man with a bunch of orders in his hand and wearing dark trousers, white shirt, without a coat, who was in charge of Chanslor & Lyon^ Motor Supply company, No. 030 SouTh Main street, listened to my story regarding the purchase of a gas tank, .inrl finally declaivd ho would sell mo tho best tank on the market for $35. Hr- gave me his card alter I had promised to bring my brother around later in the day to look the tank over. At the offlco of the Stoddard-Dayton Motor company, No. 1013 South Main street I encountered short, smooth faced, dark complexioned young man •wearing a gray suit, who told me, after hearing my yarn concerning the stor age of an automobile, that be could not take care of my machine, as he had no garage. At No. 1018 South Main street, the Helnemann-lvar.son company, I found a short, smooth faced, dark complex loped younj man wearing a light suit and a light gray cap, who Informed me that it would be a pretty hard matter for me to get a large ga.s tank, as he declared, "Th< re are mighty few in thla town." As I left the store he even went so far as to alap me on the back, with the remark, "I'm sorry l cannot ac commodate you."

FLAMMER £ street, . the Hughson & Merton com pany, I asked a tall, dark complexioned, smooth faced young man wearing a dark checked suit and black derby hat, what he had in the line of gas tanks. As an answer he demonstrated the "Never out" lamp, after which he presented me with a catalogue and his card, which had the name "J. G. Coch rano" written in lead pencil on the botton. At the office of the Wayne Auto com pany, No. 1203 South Main street, I bothered a short, dark complexioned chap with a smooth face, who was in charge of the store, long enough to dis cover the price for storing a Wayne automobile. He regretted the fact that he had no garage, but declared that as soon as the machine arrived in this city he would be glad to lend me a hand in its unloading. He gave me a card with the name "Bennett" engraved on it. Over at the office of 11. O. Harrison company, No. 1214 South Main street, I met a short, dark complexioned, smooth faced young man, whose name I discovered later was "M. C. Barker," said he had no place to store .-. Peer less car, which I declared would arrive In this city within a few days, but sug gested that I carry his card next door, where be was quite sure I could get what I was after. Going next door to No. 1218 South Main street, 1 repeated my query to a young lady bookkeeper In charge of the office, who referred me to Mr, Lee, whom I found in the rear of the store. Mr. Lee said ho could take care of the car very nicely for $17 a month. Walking back to the office of the Tourist Auto company 1 asked a tall, smooth faced, dark complexioned man, whom 1 suppose was one of the sales men, what sort of a gas tank I should buy for a Tourist car. He replied that he was sorry that he could not give me the information, as the auto man was out, but added that if I would wait a few moments the manager would return. After waiting rive minutes • I left the place, picking up a catalogue as I passed out. New Victims Today At Pico and South Hill streets I found the office of the Success Auto mobile company, where I asked a tall, Smooth lac.d, light complexion, , I man wearing a gray suit and black derby hat, the price of storing a Winton car, to which he answered that be could take care of it for $20 a month.
