Wagers on Election. Results Are Re
. ported Unusually Light.
New York, October 17. There was
very little election betting on the
curb Saturday, but in the small offer
ing a change was indicated in "favor
of Higgins in this State. The bet
ting on the State situation was at 10
to 7, but Bunnell and Buchanan, bet
ting commissioners, offered $4,000 to
.$5,000, or 8 to 10, on Higgins, with
out getting a taker.
A well known betting commissioner
on the curb stated that he made a bet
on Roosevelt with a stock exchange
house of $2,000 to $050, which lower
ed the odds to 10 to 3, which pre
vailed before.

has always been a recognized betting
center; at the aldorf-Astoria, head

much as $15,000 wagered up to the
present time.

Knights of Pythias at Indianapolis
report that changes of unusual im

fective the first of November.
Most important of these is the pro
vision that all applicants for mem
bership after that time must pass a
medical examination and the plryci
cian's certificate must accompany
their application. The order for the
semi-annual pass-word is another
thing that is to be abolished and in
its stead an official receipt will now
be used, the same as is done in a
number of other secret orders. The
law regarding transfer cards from
one lodge to another is also changed
and one dollar fee, heretofore eharged
for this certificate, is abolished.
Changes are also made in the laws
governing expulsions for non-payment
of dues. Pythians generally
look upon the changes in the laws
with much favor and believe they
will prove of great benefit to the or

Was Yesterday With its Warmth and
Yesterday was beautiful as applied
to the weather. A certain spring
warmth was in the atmosphere, and
it had a tendency to arouse people
to the fact that long walks in the
fresh air would be beneficial. All
day long hundreds of people lined
the streets and quite a number went
into the country, while others took
advantage of the day to hire rigs and
! ride for miles into the country. The
street cars Avere well patronized. The
churches were filled with worship
pers, and nothing of a public' nature
occurred to mar the quiet of the Sab
bath day. "The Good Old Summer
Days" are fast drawing to a close,
the trees are taking on a golden hue
