PERKINS, THE WEST SIDE GEOCERYMAN, OREGON, : : MISSOURI. Koney in Sports. That there is money in sports is at tested from time to time by figures made, public. For instance, the re ceipts of the world's championship baseball series (five games) were $173. 980, of which $79,071.93 was given to the players. As large as these figures may seem they are but slightly indi cative of the total amount spent for baseball in this country, which has recently been estimated to be -$12,000,-000. And yet this amount represents only the moneys paid into the box of fice for tickets and reserved seats, and not the indirect expenses borne by the lovers of the game. Yet baseball is not the onlysport in which money figures. According to recent statistics there have been ex pended during the past year nearly $7,000,000 for experiments in and ex hibitions of airships. What the pub lic has paid for the privilege ot wit nessing these exhibitions is undeter minable. Of tljte money otlered for prizes Paulhan has won $82,000, Mo rane $53,000, Latham $52,000, and oth ers smaller amounts. "Without going further into detail, and perhaps it would be impossible to correctly estimate the amount of money expended in each and every sport, it may be well to note the esti mate of a French newspaper to the etTeet that one-eighth of the world's income is devoted to sports, a con siderable part of which may be right fully classified as games. If this esti mate is a correct one, it may, in this country, at least, account in a meas ure for complaints against the high cost of living.

The ''Gamblers' Row," of Reno Nev., has been dismantled and at no place within the borders of the Unit ed States is open gambling now al lowed. Not. only is Nevada to be con gratulated for her new drastic anti gambling law, which went into effect October 1st, but the entire country is relieved that we no longer have within our borders a place which had won the uneviable appellation of the "Monte Carlo of America.'- upon the ethics of gambling there can be no two sides, and no country which today countenances or fosters lottery or gambling can be regarded as m either the second or third class among the Powers. This is one of the ques which illustrating well the growth of nublic sentiment and the power of aroused sentiment when it is nation wide. A century ago churches were erected by the proceeds from lotteries but so far have we advanced that our national laws against the lottery are the most stringent possible. Reno will feel the loss for the moment ol the money put into circulation uy the gambling fraternity, but the ac count of the closing says that within a month "Gamblers' Row, with its dazzling electric ornamentations, will be occupied by business houses doing a reputable business." If Reno will now take one other step and free her self from the odium of the easy-grind ing divorce mill, her name will then be as fair as that of any other Ameri can city.
