THE RICHMOND PAL LADIUM AX1 SUN-TOLEGRAJi, TUESDAY. NOVEMBER 3, 190S.
ILLINOIS WILL GO REPUBLICAN Burglars Lunch And Then Play Poker For Their Victim's Money Cleveland, Ohio, Nov. 3. Burglars enjoyed a fine lunch and then played a - game of poker for their victim's money in his own home last night. Rattling of the poker chips aroused the family of Leroy Gleason, this city. Gleason stole down the stairs and saw the burglars in the parlor, buily tak ing his own money. "I bet 30" said one burglar. His companion happened to glance up at the door and saw Gleason. "I pass,' he yelled, and shot through the open window. The other burglar grabbed the swag and followed him. Two men answering their descrip tions were arrested shortly afterward.

Rousing meet ings held in many places throughout Illinois last night marked the close of ; the active work of the campaign. The contest in both the national tickets was over so far as political manage ment: was concerned ana me ngm leu with the voters. The Republicans claim the state by 190,000, while the Democrats class it as doubtful. The Democrats, in fact, have strong hopes of electing their candidate for . nnAimAi AMof V. fltavcmnn and tha ' fight, In this particular, is somewhat In doubt. The Republicans, however, assert that they will return Charles S. Den een to the gubernatorial chair by a heavy plurality. It is Impossible to predict with any accuracy the political complexion of the next Congressional delegation from this state, save it will be largely Republican. The Democrats claim stoutly and, with some apparent reas on, that they will gain a number of Representatives. It is generally con oeded, however, that they will be in a decided minority. The friends of Speaker Cannon con fidently predict his re-election by a majority of from 5,000 to 7,500, while the Democrats claim that Henry C. Bell, their standard bearer in this dis trict, surely will defeat Cannon. There is every indication that the next state Legislature, which elects a successor to Senator Albert J. Hop kins, will be Republican. THE GAMINGPASSIOM Incidents In Actual Life That Outstrip Fiction. A COLD BLOODED MONARCH. Th EUrnal 8ervant Question. In describing the servant of Buenos Aires a writer In the Buenos Aires Herald says, "Cook, housemaid, wait ress, chambermaid or nurse, individ ually and collectively, they are the speck on the ripe fruit of domestic felicity, the fly in the ointment, any thing and everything you please that Is bad and slovenly and untrustworthy, everything, in short, save good servants." Rums Dusnansifli A Trial Is Froe It is a popular mistake that only wealthy people who sat rich and highly-spiced foods suffer from dys pepsia, or, as it is also known, indi gestion. The laborer in the street, the worker in the field also finds him self a victim of this disorder. Among the very greatest sufferers from it are women. Dyspepsia is Indicated by a constant reeling of laslness, by loss of appetite and troubled sleep, by sour stomach and dis tress after eating, by bad complexion and lusterless eyes. There is no surer and speedier cure for this trouble than Dr. CaMwll'a Hvmm Pepsin, which dyspeptics have been using: successfully for twenty years. This great aerb laxative compound cured Capt. Clark, of Buffalo, la,, of dyspepsia and sour stomach that he had had for forty years, or until the lucky day that he heard of Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin. It cured Joel Adams, of Montgomery. .Ala., after Buffering: continuously for sixteen months. These are only a few of the many. But It is not expensive to be cured with this Srand remedy, as it can be bought at any rug- store in a 60-cent or $1 bottle. Your very neighbors are probably life long users of Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin, but if you want to know without expensa what It will do for you personally, send your name to Dr. Caldwell and he will be Jrlad to send you a free trial bottle. Ha s actually anxious to have you make a test of his remedy. Thousands of families everywhere keep It In the house against such an emer gency as constipation, sour stomach, in digestion, biliousness, dyspepsia, heart burn, torpid liver, etc., which may come on a member of the family any day. It Is pleasant to the taste, acts gently and does not gripe. It Is the great children's laxative tonic If there is anything about your ailment that you don't understand, or If you want any medical advice, write to the doctor, and he will answer you fully. There Is no charge for this service. The address is Dr. W. B. Caldwell. 604 Caldwell bid, MontlceUo. IU.

BEE HIVE Louis XV. and the Dead Man at the Card Table A Woman Who Gam bled on Her Deathbed Lord Deni son's Play While His Bride Waited at the Altar. If the full story of the card table could be written It would surely be the most startling revelation of human cupidity ever published, and almost every page of it would be marked by some Incident which would outstrip fiction. When Louis XV. was at the card table the fascination of the game made him absolutely dead to all externals and even to decency and humanity. On one occasion when he was playing for heavy stakes one of his opponents, overcome by excitement, collapsed in his chair In a fit of apoplexy. His majesty affected to ignore the Incident until some one exclaimed, "M. de Chau velin is 111!" "111?" retorted the king, casting a careless glance at the strick en man; "he is dead. Take him away. Spades are trumps, gentlemen!" Equally weird is a story Goldsmith tells. When the clergyman arrived to prepare a lady parishioner who had a passion for gambling for her approach ing death the lady after listening for a short time to his exhortation exclaim ed: "That's enough! Now let us have a game of cards." To humor her the parson consented to play. The dying woman won all his money and had just suggested playing for her funeral fee when she fell back and expired. In the early years of last century a whist club composed largely of clergy men used to meet in the back room of a barber's shop In a Somersetshire town. On one occasion, so the story runs, when four of the club members were acting as pallbearers at the fu neral of n reverend brother, some delay occurred, and the coffin was set down in the chancel. One of them produced a pack of cards and suggested a rub ber. The coffin served the purpose of a table, and the players were deeply immersed in the game when the sex ton arrived to announce that every thing was at last ready. Mazarin's passion for gambling was so strong even in death that he played cards to the very end. when he was so weak that they had to be held for him. and the "merry monarch" spent his last Sunday on earth playing at basset round a large table with his great courtiers and other dissolute persons and with a bank of at least 2,000 before him. The curious fascination cards possess for their devotees is illustrated by the following story of Lord Granville, at the time ambassador to France. One afternoon when he was about to re turn to Paris he repaired to Graham's to have a farewell game of whist, or dering his carriage to be at the door at 4. .When it arrived he was much too deep in the game to be disturbed. At 10 o'clock he sent out to say that he was not ready and that the horses had better be changed. Six hours later the same message was sent out, and twice more the waiting horses were changed before he consented to leave the table after losing 10.000. An equally remarkable story is told of George Payne, the great turf plun ger of seventy years ago. On one occa sion he sat down at Limmer's hotel to play cards with Lord Albert Denison, later the first Lord Londesborough. Hour after hour passed. The game proceeded all through the night and long after day dawned, and it was not until an urgent message came to tell Lord Albert that his bride was waiting for him at the altar of St. George's, Hanover square, that the cards were at last flung down. It was Lord Al bert's wedding day, and he met his bride 30,000 poorer than when he left her on the previous day. One of the most romantic of gam bling stories is told by Mr. Thiselton Dyer of a plainly dressed stranger who once took bis seat at a faro table and after an extraordinary run of luck succeeded in breaking the bank. "Heavens," exclaimed an old. infirm Austrian officer who had sat next to the stranger, "the twentieth part of your gains would make me the happi est man In the world T' "You shall have it, then," answered the stranger as he left the room. A servant speedily returned and pre sented the officer with the twentieth part of the bank, adding. "My master, sir, requires no answer. The success ful stranger was soon discovered to be the king of Prussia in disguise. The most costly game of cards on record was probably that in which the late George McCulloch, chairman of the Broken Hill Proprietary company, once took part. A syndicate of seven had been formed to finance the fa mous Broken Hill silver mine, and Mr. McCulljcb. was-onepf the- seven. One How's This?

He won and for the absurd sum of 120 became owner of the share which a few years later was valued at 1,250,000. Lon don Tit-Bits. The beginning of excellence is to be free from error. Quintilian. LIGHT VOTE POLLED General Apathy in Tennessee Over Things Political. TIRED OF AGITATION. Nashville, Tenn., Nov. 3 Both Dem ocrats and Republicans express confi dence in the result of voting in Ten nessee. The consensus of opinion on both sides, however, is that a light vote will be polled, except in some counties where heated congressional or county fights have been in progress. This light vote is expected to follow the apathetic condltloins which have prevailed throughout the state during the entire campaign. The fact that there promises to be a comparatively large silent vote adds a degree of uncertainty to the result that might not otherwise exist. To day, there is more talk concerning the probable result of the election than at any previous time during the cam paign. The apathy which has prevailed throughout the state is chiefly accred ited to the fact that Tennessee has been surfeited with politics for many months past and the people are tired of political agitation. No Discharge. "Maggie," said the inexperienced young thing to the cook, "the biscuits were a sight If you can't do better next time, I will have to discharge you." "Ye will, will ye?".

Mrs. Kate Ayer died yesterday even ing, after an extended illness. The fu neral will be Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the residence of her daughter, Mrs. Carrington, 100 Fort Wayne avenue. Friends may call any time. Mrs. Ayer was always an ac tive worker in charity and was the first president of the Penny club, and was one of its first members and organizers. Another objection is being raised to the city court being held at an after noon hour and this time it comes from members of the mayor's official family. The protest is entered because of the increased expense to the city. The city allows 15 cents per meal for each prisoner fed and when they remain at the city jail until the afternoon ses sion of court they have to be provided with dinner. This is the cause of the additional expense. When six or seven prisoners are in the city jail and each is supplied with breakfast and dinner the increase in expense is not incon siderable. The members of the police depart ment are almost unanimously in favor of the change to the afternoon hour. Those on night duty do not have to delay their hours of slumber while preparations are being made to con vene court, nor to await the pleasures of the attorneys. There has been no case of importance arise in city court since the change of time was made, and none requiring a jury, so that no test has been made which gives these mat ters consideration. However, if jury trials are not begun until the after noon and the customary delays in curred such as have featured previous cases, it will mean more than one day's service for the jury in each instance. One of the greatest drawbacks that is expected to be encountered by the new plan relates to the duties of the prosecuting attorney. When the cir cuit court is in session and important trials under consideration, the prose cutor can not be at both courts at the same time. This means one court will have to suffer inconvenience or the work must be turned over to a deputy. Although the time has been changed for three weeks the plan has not un dergone a thorough trial and for this reason is being continued indefinitely. POSTAL RECEIPTS SHOWPROSPERITY Increase in September and October. "Say does this look like hard times?" asked Postmaster Spekenhier as he picked up off his desk a pad showing a bunch of figures. "Last month," said he, referring to the figures, "the receipts at the local postoffice exceeded by $254 the postal receipts of October last year. During last September and October the re ceipts of the local postoffice .exceeded the receipts of the same two months last year by $816. Guess that's pretty good when you come to consider that September and October last year marked the high water mark of pros perity under the Roosevelt regime." While There's Life There's Hop. "Oh, Jack, have you seen father?" "Yes. I have come straight here from his office." "And did he give his consent?" "I couldn't quite make out He seemed disinclined to commit himself definitely." "Why, what did he say?" "He didn't say anything at alL" "Did you ask him?" "I said: 'Sir, I wish to marry your daughter. Have I your consent? He turned and looked at me a minute. Then he began to grow red In the face, and then he grabbed me and threw me over the banisters, and be fore I could ask him again he had slammed his door and locked it. But he didn't say anything either way." LACK OF EVIDENCE AGAINST SURFACE Shadow of Theft Lifted From New Hope Man.
