CUPID ENJOYS DAY OFF;
ONLY 9 LICENSES ISSUED
Cupid must have been sleeping yes
terday, for there were so few marriage
licenses Issued that the record for
"few" in the last five years was made
a matter of legal attention.
Only nine marriage licenses were
issued, and whether the drop from the
high record of sixty issued Wednesday
was caused by an intervening holiday
could not be determined.
County officials, however, are In
clined to lay the blame to Cupid for
dereliction. They believe that he and
not the cloudy weather is to blame for
there being only nine permits to make
eighteen hearts happy.

SHOWED OF GOLD COMES
WITH CITY WORK BID
Lowest Proposal to Erect Central
Park Station Amounts
to $14,352
The desk of Horace B. Ferris, secre
tary of the board of public works,
looked like the counter in front of a
bank teller for a while yesterday aft
ernoon. He had piles of gold coin,
checks and bank notes ln front of him
that amounted to several thousand
dollars In the aggregate.
The board of public works was re
ceiving sealed bids for the construction
of the proposed comfort station ln
Central park. With each bid the law
requires that either a certified check
or a bond must be enclosed. Bonds
and checks were taken out of the en
velopes until Ferris came to the one
enclosing the bid of the Alta Planing
mill. It was only a flimsy paper en
velope and bulged thickly at one end.
When ho tore it open a check for $800,
two $20 bills and forty $5 gold pieces
rolled out. He made a quick grab and
secured the money before It, rolled on
the floor and then stacked up the
coins.
It was first proposed to build the
comfort station for $10,000, but when
the plans were drawn the architect
told the park commission it could not
be built for that sum, but would prob
ably cost $12,000 to $14,000. The lowest
bid received was for $14,362.
GIVES $2000 FOR POWER
DEVELOPMENT ON AQUEDUCT
The finance committee yesterday
agreed to appropriate $2000 from the

works asked for $2000 each month for
the next five months, but the finance
committfte cnnr.liirlßii to appropriate
the money for December and let the
board ask for funds from month to
month.
It was expected that money from the
sale of the power bonds would be avail
able before this time,' but the bonds
have been tied up in the courts to test
their validity and the board expects
it will be several months before they
will be sold.
BAN ON SUNDAY GAMES ASKED
Two petitions were filed with the
council yesterday asking that base
ball games be prohibited Sunday on
the city playground on Slauson avenue,
near Compton. One petition v/as signed
