The Knd Near at II mil.
The Royal Lottery of Cuba, with
headquarters in Havana, is still doing
business $1 a ticket, and the king of
Spain, as ever, winning the grand prize
of J,.o,000 at each drawing. The royal
gambling scheme, Lowever, is Hearing
the end of its fortiuie-promising, pauper-producing
career iu Cuba.
Here for many years this corpora
tion, existing by rojal grant ami under
royal favor, has conducted a thorough
ly honorable swindling business. Its
little red tickets have spi t ad over the
island, irritatingly, like the signs of
jrickly heat over the body. Killettos
le Loteria have sold 1.000,000 a month,
it .$1 each. And tventy-tive per cent,
)f this 1.0XMM0 has been paid niontli
y to the royal ruler of Spain. Hut now
:hat the said royal ruler is no longer to
rule Cuba, since hU royal army is to
?vacuate the island, his royal lottery is
n danger of evictioa.
Hence, the corporation's president
ind all its vice presidents have put
their heads together and concocted a
K-heme, by the operation of which they
aope to continue business at the old
stand. They have planned to cut loose
from the royal head in Spain, to drop
from their concern's name the word
Royal" and substitute the word Cu
ban. Moreover, the twenty-five per
?eut of the gross receipts now demand
?d and received by Spanish royalty,
tvill be offered to the Cuban govern
ment. The question now is, will the
Cuban government, or rather, ought
the Cuban government, to accept the
proffered bribe and permit the lottery
to continue business.
In Havana. Santiago. Cienfuegos,
Matanzas. everywhere in the island,
.ottery tickets are sold by every worth
less man, woman or child, who can
joeure the conlidenco of a broker. The
broker trusts the peddler with the
-.ickets, and the peddler sells them for
l certain commission. Thus far, the
lottery scheme is good it furnishes
?inploynient for the needy and the
ne'er-do-well. The peddlers infest the
streets, wharves, and shops. While
you sit in a cafe, you are offered twen
:y billetes by twenty different venders
in as many minutes.
In the old prosperous times, the tick
?ts cost .$1 each, in Spanish silver.
But since the beginning of the Cuban
war, more than three years ago. the
arice has leen $1 in paper. Two hun
ired and fifty thousand tickets are is
sued and there is a drawing every ten
Says. At the last drawing on the
:norning of Oct. 10, the bait offered to
the poor people of Cuba consisted of
the usual grand prize of $o().0(M and,
n addition, one premium of $lo,uoo one
3f $5,(MX), four of $1,000 each, two of
MOO each, two of $200 each and seven
hundred and ninety-eight of $100 each,
making a total of 809 premiums, ani
mounting to $150,000. Two hundred
ind fifty thousand tickets were issued,
ind supposedly, all sold. Yet during
the ten days in which that quarter
million pieces of worthless paper were
?old at $1 each, misery reigned in Cu
ba. People were starving to death.
Eight cents a day would have saved
and still save a life.
Just before the war, when the United
States began the work of Cuban re
Jet, money was sent to Consul (Jeneral
Lee. The general distributed the nec
?ssary 8 cents a day to those of the re
.'onceutradoes who were found worthy.
Still the starving starved. What did
these people do with their S cents?
Hen. Lee investigated. He found that
the money went toward the purchase
)f lottery tickets: and he at once cabled
Washington: "Don't send cash. Semi
:-ornmeal and codfish."
Since the raising of the blockade the
people generally have lost some of
:heir confidence, for the lottery officials
tiave been detected passing out count
erfeit coin with good currency. Still
the drawings are held every ten days.
An observer has noticed that out of the
:housan Is of spectators present at each
irawing, not one, on any occasion, held
l winning number.
Two hours after each drawing the
antes of the winners are published in
the Havana "extraB and cried in all
the streets. The names are telegraph
ed to the newspapers in Santiago, Ma
tanzas, and other cities, lint as no ad
dresses are given, it is obviously im
possible to meet winners face to face.
flie -Royal Lottery officials positively
refuse to give any information what
soever. Their plea is that they must
respect, "keep sacred, the privacy of
their patrons. After the drawing of
Sept. 19, one of the vice presidents w-as
asked a very ordinary nitojjon con-

AN OLD CIRCUS MAN'S STORY
He Tells How They Found a Tlace In
Which to Kary the Great Giant,
"I never told you the exact height
of the great giant what's the useV"
said the old circus man. "You wouldn't
believe it if I did; as I've said before
it would only make you dis-believe
what I do tell you about him, and
what's the use? But you can form
some sort of an idea about it if from
these things that I've told you and
from what I'm going to tell you now
about his death and burial, because in
the course of time he died.
"We were under canvas then, show
ing three 'times a day. and moving
ourselves, and we were tolerable busy,
and we really hadn't time to give at
tention as we ought to the burying of
what had been, after the great giraffe,
our very greatest attraction. The dig
ging of a grave for him would have
been like digging the foundations for
several houses in a row and would
have taken lots of time, and the mere
cost of the land would be considerable.
"Well, as usual, the old man's horse
sense came to the rescue. In looking
around for forage when he struck the
town he had discovered the ned of an
abandoned canal, that they'd stopped
using when the railroad was built.
This old canal ran through the edge of
a man's farm thire, and the land was
no use to anybody. It didn t pay to
plough it because it wasn't worth the
time and trouble it would t ike to get
horses and ploi:g,is up and down the
bank, and it wasn't any good for any
thing; and the old man bought a strip
of that land along there, a few acres
of it. enough for a cemetery lot for the
giant, for next to nothing. So you see
there we were, with the land bought
and the grave dug at very small ex
pense and practically in a minute.
"We laid the giant down in the sec
tion of the canal we had bought, and
hauled earth from the rest of the piece
to cover him up the old man was w ise
enough of course to buy land enough
to provide for that. When the mound
was rounded up in proper shape and
due proportions it made quite a ridge:
it was a Hat country round there, and
you could set this ridge for quite a

headstone, and it was much the biggest
I ever saw, and quite different from
any I ever saw it was built of brick.
The old man hired all the men that
could work on it. and they put in a
foundation aim built the headstone in
half a da j'. It was something like the
side of a brick house for general ui
mensions. only it was very uracil-thicker
and tombstone-like in shape, and at
a little distance in the level country

end of it lot deed like what it was, the
