It was certainly a w.oll managed and well
Ho Didn't Go Along.
A representative of the Buli.ktik, yesterday
afternoon, guided by an evil star
ventured into a business hoiiHe that had
as many people about tho counters as if
it had been a small-pox hospital with a
yellow flag flying at tho outside. There
was a cordial, inviting air about tho
pluce that prompted you to look around
to see if a shot-gun was aimed at you or
a bull-dog about to bo unchained.
" No," said tho proprietor crustily, " I
dont want to do any advertising. I had
my name paintod on tho fence about
threo years ago, but it was a dead loss
and I havo regretted it over sinco."
The Bulletin man squared himself for
action. Ho assailed him with eloquence
on tho flank, up the center and across
tho middle. The hot firo was returned
with gall nnd wormwood,
the engagement lasting about an hour.
But at tho end ho was not a bit disorganized
and quite as unimpressionable as if
ho had been a bank clerk of twenty years
standing. Finally, with a determination
not to be routed, the Bui.i.k tin's man offered
him advertising space for nothing,
proposed to throw in achromo, and stood
ready, if the worst camo to the worst, to
clinch the bargain by giving him free
tickets to tho next circus.
"I am almost persuaded," this enterprising
man of business did reply, " to
take half a square for a couple of hours,
but upon reflection I remember that I
have a horse-shoo nailed over the door,
and that I make it a point to sec the new
moon over my left shoulder onco a

The Mysteries nnd Manipulations of
Paris Mutual as Explained by General
B ii ford.
Wo take the following from the Louisville
Evening Post which copied it from
General Buford's corner of Dunten's
Spitit of the Turf. We are pleased to
learn that tho General has become interested
in tho success of our trnttim:
meeting and will bo present, and will
givo us an articlo in the Spirit of the
Turf on the surroundings of MayHville.
Our beautiful rac course he says, is in
overy respect equal for either trotting or
running to any in the country :
Now that tho c.tmpain of 1833 is upon
us, and on which so many millions of
money will ho staked, it will not be out
of place to discuss tho different modes of
bettinir now in vogue on the various
grounds of thojockey clubs in the country,
by inquiring into the practices, as
well as the rules and regulations, governing
this betting. As men and women,
too, will bet on u horse race, as well as on
tho future price of grain, it become the
duty of tho public, as far as it is in their
power, by exposing the fraudulent
and practices, if any, in the
bucket bhops or on the Jockey Club
grounds. By reference to the "sermon
delivered in'Brooklyn, N. Y., by the Rt
Rov. DeWitt Talmu'go which was styled
by the Courier-Journal a Ituford sermon,
the different styles of betting on a how
were elaborately and minutely explained.
On reading this sermon we'were struck
with the great familiarity the
gentleman evidently on the
subject, and concluded, with stioug tea-sons
to prove the conviction, that he had
gained this coinplet" knnwledm of the
subject by actual experience. B" that as
it may, lie most assuredly understood the
subject, and if ministers and Christians
will occasionally " lay a wager," it becomes
tho duty of idi turf editors to
they are not taken advantage of. In the
same stsrnmn referred to it was urratif inir
indeed to find that so grand a nmn as
Tahnage fully indorsed the liberal position
taken by General Bufnrd mi the
question of church and tint. On a horse
race thero are several stvles ot betting
the auction pools, ,wnl
French mutual.), the elegant mid
fashionable of which Is 'he
as at pinny of the most popular
racing points you'ean see the th-i l.alios
of the land sending their m i'uls of honor
or escorts to purchase few I'lenc.i
mutual tickets. It is thi stxleot liettiin.'
that we wish to invest'utie now
There aro used in this betting a iiiunhet
of machines or boxes, that ate built for
the express purpose, with sonu little machinery
about them; u crank, an inilh: itor
and n face,ou which is placed all the names
of the horses that aro to run in the race.
There are usually fioin two to one-hall'
dozen machines in operation at the same
time, all of which are under thecoiiuimtiil
and management of a gentleman who is
styled the French Professor. His command
of this brigade of machines is as
arbitraryas that of a General in the army
over a hii.'itdu of troops. Tin; sale ot
tickets ustiilly begins an hour or so he-fore
the race. At each machine stands a
man to receive the money paid for tickets,
nnd to turn the crank when a ticket is
sold. As fat as the t ckets are sold the
crank is turned, and the indicator shows
the number of tickets sold. When the
sale of tickets is stopped, all the tintiihor.s
in all the machines aro added together.
This gives the total number of tickets
sold. Multiply this number by live,
which is the usual price of a single ticket,
and you have the amount of money in
tho machines, which amount is to be di-vi
led by the persons buying the winning
horse, minus the peicentago allowed to
the Professor. Should then; have been
sold but one ticket on the winning horse,
then tho pm chaser gets all the money in
tho machines minus tho percentage.
Should there have been ten tickets sold,
then the holder of each ticket will get one-tenth
of the amount, in tho machines
minus tho percentage. When tho numbers
indicating the number of tickets sold
on each horse aro not interfered with, and
left in sight of the public until tho official
decision of the race is by tho judges,
there is no trouble, nnd nil is fair and just,
and tho turning of tho crank sounds as
nice to him who has purchased tho winning
tickets as the tingling of a wedding
bell. But it is said to be the case that
sometimes, a few moments before the
race is run, tho Professors, or nil expert
for them, mny close one or two of
the machines, when no ono is noticing
the indicator, which tells the number of
tickets sold, and continue to sell on tho
number of tickets sold in tho closed machines,
gives them a chance to do thoir
manipulating. For instance, should a
horso win a race on which wore sold fivo
ticketH, nnd tho manager report ten sold,
ho will get just ono half tho money in tho
machines, thus placing it in his power to
manipulato the machines greatly to his
advantuge. When tho race is being run
you may sometimes seo an expert as was
the practice in France, and caused tho
abolishment of this system of betting in
that country figuring very industriously
with nil tho numbors out of sight, and
the public waiting until tho result of tho
race is announced and his figuring finished,
before they can loam the number of
tickets sold. When tho sale on any of
tho machines is stopped, tho report of the
indicator should immediately bo placed
on a blackboard. Tho officers of tho
Coney Island, Baltimoro and Long
Branch clubs, nnd perhaps .others,
tho numbers indicating tickets sold,
to remain in tho mnchinos all tho while,
tho public to whom thoy bo'
longj until after the ..race .la .decided and
announced from the stand. Any
once with the machines ufter the sale of
tickets begin, is indicative of interested ,
manipulation. It was the abuse of this '
most elegantly and gentlemanly wny of
(letting or laying a wngor that induced
the turf officials of France to drive these '
machines from their club grounds and
abandon their system of betting, and, as i
an ounce of prevention is worth a pound
cure, we are induced to make these sag- f
gestions in due tune. The ntjerai gentlemen
of America, both Christian and sinner,
are fond of this great national sport,
and when they attend tho roces they
must get up a little excitement, so the.y
bet a little, and when they are satisfied
that all is fur, and the race and betting
is on the square, they come again, and vo
home happy, win or lose, and there is no
trouble with the church, especially if
from Maysvillo will bo sincerely re-;
gretted by a wide circle of friends.!
lie is a quiet, unassuming gentleman .
who will be kindly remembered by nil. '
