THREE THE BREMEN ENQUIRER. THURSDAY, AUGUST 14, 1924 Severe Storm Kills Eight SERVICES AT THE CHURCHES G. M. BUCK, Ph. C M. D. Office In Nusbaum Block A TRIP TO $ Combination of Fun, and Foolosophy given to the management for expense and profit. The balance all of it is used to pay off the winners. It is the only fair and mechanical method of betting and gives the patron a chance (and a sky limit for his money.) A visit to Cuba is certainly worth while. The comparisons to be made with home conditions are always entertaining. There are some really wonderful sights to see and the Cubans welcome you. There are so many tourists that the people become accustomed to the wierd efforts to talk to them. They smile and point. You will have no trouble getting into or out of the country. By all means GO TO CUBA. Mrs. Hallie Ringgenberg Downing. Persons in Wisconsin Milwaukee. Wisconsin's most severe storm In years has taken a terrific toll In property and life, according to surveys. Property loss will run Into millions of dollars and eight deaths are traceable to the storm.

He stood on the bridge at midnight Beneath high heaven's great dome. The fellow was married The jag that he carried Made him afraid to go home. flr More Work For The Alienists. A Nappanee girl recently received an offer of marriage. She asked a week to consider the matter, then or ganized herself into an investigating committee and commenced taking testimony from the married ladies of ler acquaintance. The first one she visited used to be a belle and the most admhed girl in the town before she was married six years ago. The examination brought out the fact that she had three children, did all her own work, including ler washing and ironing, and hadn't been down town for four weeks, and that her husband had given her but ?2 since she v as married, and that he had borrow edand forgot to payback $10 which her brother once gave her for a Christmas present. Another woman whom she visited quit teaching school three years ago to marry "the handsomest and best- dressed man in town," and she is now- supporting him. A third didn't dare say her soul was her own w hen her husband was j aound, though she used to write some lovely essays when she was at school on "The Emancipation of Woman." The fourth woman she visited was divorced. After visiting them and summing up the evidence she went home and wrote to the young man. She will be married to him next month. "Souls Burning in Hades" was the subject recently taken by a Winona evangelist, after which we are informed by one of the papers the quartet sang "Tell Mother I'll Be There." x x We're waiting now to read that some producer has filmed "The Merchant of Venice" and changed the title to "Portia's Bargain, or a Pound of Flesh," or renamed "Hamlet," "The Princely Nut," or produced ' Rider Haggard's "She" as "The Eter-1 nal Feminine" or modernized Marie Correlli's "Wormwood" as 'Moonshine." So little respect have the movie magnates for our intelligence or the old masters.

The Oriental Race Track at Havana is operated by the Cuban-American Jockey Club and is situated in Marianoa,' a suburb, 16 miles from the center of the Capitol. Some street car systems are complicated but that of Havana is positively wierd. So many winding streets, avenues and drives some narrow and some broad 1 It is very confusing. Auto hire is limited to rates in certain zones but the race track seems to offer a field for individual speculation. Some drivers ask $5.00 for the trip. Others 40 cents! It's a matter of argument and bargaining. The traveller soon learns to take advantage of the street cars. By transferring two times and losing forty minutes one certain car line" will land you at the track for fifteen cents fare. The only trouble is to dope out that one car. It is one in about twenty lines and when you consider that the directions are written in Spanish, the conductor talks Spanish and the cops cannot understand English you are hunting for the proverbial needle. The Oriental track is a thing of beauty and a joy to the eye. It is like a park in dimensions and gardening. The rich come here to rest and enjoy the sport of kings. The normlaritv of the. trark does not de- pend upon the rude herd and peas antry. No hawkers or side shows annoy the senses of sight and hearing. Two large buildings, one the club rooms and the other the grand stand and betting floor stand between the track and a large plaza. Flowers, hedges and decorative shrubbery make the approach beautiful in color. Broad walks lead to the paddock and various points of vantage. Two orchestras entertain the guests between races. A floor is provided for dancing. Lunch rooms are handy. Over all is an atmosphere of calm elegance. Very unlike the old fairgrounds racing that thrilled us in the bygone days. ffl There is no race distinction in Cuba such as we have at home. But those people who are in the grand suiiiu are xn wen uresaeu aim well behaved. Women are there in wonderful gowns such as we expect to see at tea parties. There are fine looking aristocratic men in white nannels, army or navy regalia, and iisn tailoring. Those of us who were s fortunate as to be pres- ent on the opening day were given the opportunity to see His Excel lency, The President of the Cuban Republic. He entered the grand stand to the tunes of the Cuban na tional air. Every one stood until the president entered his private box. Surrounded by a bevy of Spanish beauties and grand looking dignitar-' ies of the state he became a fellow j onlooker at the field of chance. The races start at z.du and one heat is the race. The purses range f rem $500.00 to $1200.00 and the dis- tance from five to nine furlongs. All running races. Out of a tumult of conversation, music and dancing a bugle sounds. ! It is the signal that the jockeys and their mounts are leaving the paddock, where they have been on exhibition for the benefit of the pro- spective betting patron. The entries ) for each race parade past the grand stand before going to the barrier. I . . - . ., j At the barrier they start trom a dead standstill. The crowd surges , to the lawn, front steps and balcon ; ies of the grandstand. The audi ! ence rises to its feet to watch the i ence j g-et-away. The horses leap forward, a bell m the gambling room sounds the end of betting on that particu lar race and all eyes are focused on the flying ponies and their riders. It is the grand sight of Havana. A summer landscape the gay col ors ' of dress flags the holiday crowd excitement cheers ap plause music. All this in the dead of winter! According to the cal endar the skies over Chicago are gray and melancholy. The people in Chicago are hurrying about the irksome business life clad in over coats and goloshes. The betting may be done in three ways all honorably and legitmately. 1st. Bets among friends. 2nd. The bookmakers offer odds and you put your wisdom against tnat ot tne proiessionai, to win or lose the total and certain amount of the wager. 3rd. The mutual or machine bet where the odds remain unknown until ail bets are down and the race over. Bets on the mutual system i are made in units of two, five or ten i dollars and as many multiples there of as vou please. When all bets ; are male a percentage of the total 'amount ot ail wagers ot tne race is Furniture and ithe home Nothing else you buy is quite as important as the furniture in your Conducted, Concocted and T "l X Confiscated " V. THEY FOUND OUT. A farmer and his wife recently lost their last hog. They agreed not say anything and they would know the first person who mentioned their loss was the "thief. Sunday they attended church and the preacher read as his text: "I have meat eat that ye know not of." Nudging his wife, the old farmer whispered: "And we never suspected him, did we, Mary?" V SOLEMN JOKE. "This is a grave affair," said the undertaker as he shoveled dirt in the face of the corpse. 3 B WATER VS. AIR. "A man in swimming has one advantage over the aviator," remarked guest at the Timekillers' Club. "Howzat?" asked a member. Well, if anything happens, the swimmer can go down three times, but an aviator goes down just once." 3fr 3fc 5 Tins beauty mud may be a great beautifier, but we can't see that it's done much for crawfish. WHY EDITORS ARE WEALTHY One of our customers smiles knowingly and passes along this bit of consolation: A child is born in the neighborhood; the attending physician gets $10. The editor gives the loud mouthed baby and the happy parents !a send-off and gets $0. When it is christened the minister gets $10, the editors gets $00. It grows up and marries. The editor j publishes another long-winded article, j auu lens a uozen ues aDouc tne Deau tiful and accomplished bride minister gets $10 and a piece n cake, and the editor gets $000.
