It may win and It rimy not. There are hundreds that play there year after year and who say tiny make a good living. They appear ev ery morning In the crowd that awaits tho opening of the doors at 10 o'clock and as soon as they make some 30 francs depart. It takes a steady head and self-control to leave when one is winning. All day long It goes on Sundays and week-days, winter and 'rummer, day and night.

Diigiiuir (ioilowsUy Dagmar Godowsky, new appearing In Unlvorsal pictures, is thu daughter of thu world-renowned j.lanlM, Leo pold Oodowsky. Born in Petrograd.

Out of this ten million is paid to tho Prince of Mon.ico. who owned the place but has made It a i tock company. The stockholders get the prollts after all the public ex penses have been met. Tin people of Monaco pay no taxes and no expenses of schools nor lor the upkeep of the towns, the music and parks. All is paid for out of the casino profits. It . not a bad place In which to live. The play, goes on till cloven at night at some of tho tables and till mid night at others, while In the private rooms one can play till dawn. For I ho magnilicent ".-alios prlvoos." there Is a small charge. It is In these halls that one sees the most reckless sums lost and won. one cannot play at all there with any stake less than twenty francs, and hundreds of thousands aro staked at every turn of the little ball. In the public halls live francs can be risked, or any st in above that up to j .,ix Oinusand francs, and one can put .i grtat many six thousands on differ ent chances it one will. To enter tho casino at all a card of entry Is neces sary. Tins Is glvi n for one day upon allow his daughter to appear in her pictures. .But at this time.

For many years, stopped during the war, losers who applied to the man agement were given tickets to take thorn away from Monaco to almost any place, even to Paris or London. It was the policy of the casino to get rid of people who had become unde sirables. There was no obligation to return the money. It was a gift rath er than a loan. Hut one could not play there again unless the money was repaid.

IM'Incc Deitaiil To Science The Prince of Monaco devotes hi life to science and has built and equipped a magnilicent Oceanographlc Museum. It contains otic of the finest aquariums in the world. It is a never falling source of interest to wander through its dim corridors and look through tho sun-lit waters of Its great tanks full of marvelous sca-lifi. gor geous of color. The museum Is bull'' up from the water level to the top of the steep cliff not far from the prince's palace. One enters on the upper level and finds halls full of huge skeletons and stuffed sea-animals, wonderfu' corals, pearls, sponges, every form of life that the seas can offer, then ono goes down stairs to tho aquariums. There Is alo a superb bathing establishment, with every possible kind of baths, electric, mechanical, heat and light treatme- as well a medical massage. Monaco consists of the great rod on which stands the castle, tho museum and a very ancient town; tho little town of "The Condamlno" at Its foot and the other hill on which tands the casino, the bathing estab lishmcnt arid tho town of Monte Carlo An hour's stroll will cover all.
