single man. v
"But by the same custom the gw
is obliged to eat all that is placed I

instead of dispensing with the ci

visiting Indians call upon these i?i
fessionai eaters, whose duty il is

^ eat what the guest leaves. The pi
fessionai eaters are never looked uju
Tr in the light of guests, but more :
JpJ I traveling companions with a panic
lar duty to perforin.
"These eaters receive from ?"1 to ?

j BRYAN'S VIEW OF PLATFORM.
; "I shall not misrepresent the situa

strong man as Democratic candidate
for governor of this State, odds dropped
to Id to } on Roosevelt, yesterday
on the Broad street curb. J. J. Judge
bet ?!0 to $10') with \V. J. Gallagher
on Parker. These are the greatest
odds so far during this campaign.
The bet. was a small one and was not
generally regarded as indicative of the
real state of the betting 'market; nevertheless
the bet attracted attention.
