am loser to tho amount set or olao am
wiiuit i- in a small amount I would
never anow myself 10 carry away
from the track a largo winning, and
I'll tell you why.
"The reason that T p'ay the races at
all is that I nny gain some recreation
in a lino that is entirelv distinct
from any regular business. To order
to on joy recreation it is necessary that
what wo no into shall have no con
nection witli 0111 everyday a lTairs and
c irry with it a sense of absolute new
ness and distinct separation from work.
I est is a change of work, you know,
and 1 go into the betting with a vim
but when I am through I want to leave
it absolutely behind as if it were only
a dream. In the 9:11110 way I want to
leave my iaisiness behind when I got
to tho trade, that it may be absolute
recreation, so when I am through bet
ting I cannot afford to think h thint;
about the winnings or losings when I
am ready to go b ick to work and carry
on my business.
"If I loso only the $" that I 6et as a
limit, it does not worry mo and I have
had the pleasure of betting, and if I
win only a small'sum I do not have to
think about it when I am through.
Tne moment that I begin to lose large
amounts I begin 10 worry, whether I
am in the betting shed or at my busi
ness where my mind should be clear of
everything of the sort, and in the same
way if I have large winnings my mind
w ill run on that instead of on my affairs
that nee'1 my undivided attention.'"
