Supporting a Family On a Small Sum.
The possibility of the support of a man
with a wife and two children upon $7.50
a week has mot with much questioning
since the statement was made that the
problem hud hcen bolved , but an inter
esting experiment in New York has
demonstrated the utmost achievement
of economy within tlio proscribed limit.
For n family of four the rent was SI per
week , fuel CO couth ami lighting 12
cents. Tlio food expenses were com
pressed toW.18 per week by the most
careful management. A bill of faro
contained two staws for four bquaro
meals , each made of 10 ce'nts' worth of
meat and bones , a handful of rice and
Hour worth 1 cent nail a little salt and
poppor. Each stow eaten with broad
sorveil for the next meal in a warmed-
over condition. Pour more of the prin
cipal meals were provided from fried
salt porlc at a cost of 14 cents , boiled
beans furnished two meals for 1H cents ,
u pot of roast beef , three pounds , : Si (
cents , anil 5 cents worth of potatoes
made n royal Sunday dinner. UrJiul
and molahscH formed the luncheon
in thomidtUeof the day at a cost of 85
cents , making the total expenses for
food ( luring the week W.48. Coinforta-

KANSAS CITV , June IS. [ Special Telegram
to Tin : 13m ; . ] It became evident Saturday
to these interested in the Waldo park racing
meeting , that , if tho' races were continued
it would bo without bookmakers
and at a loss'to the association.
The booknmUing privileges were sold
to Ira Urido and Mr. Barney Wolf , by whom
the privilege of booUmakliif ? was sublet to
fifteen llrms. Messrs. Dridc and Wolf paid
$ ,000 for the privilege of the first live days ,
and were to pay $4,000 for the four days of
next week. There was a good deal of growl
ing amonp the bookmakers all last week.
They all lost heavily on Derby Day , nnd the
attendance was not largo enough on the otliur
days to allow them to win even. Saturday
afternoon Urldu and Wolf hold
n dnnying for positions in the betting stand
at which they lound that only two or three
of the "bookers" intended to remain until
to day. They then determined to quit.
Secretary Woodcock , who recognized that
this would end the meeting , tendered his
lesignatlnn Saturday night. ThU morning
a formal demand was made on the holders of
the boojc privileges for the payment to cover
the real of the meeting , which was refused.
An effort was then made to induce a local
pool seller who has been making books nttlic
meeting to take the privileges , but ho de
clined. A meeting of tlio olllcers of the
association was then hold , and it was do-
rldcd that the only court-o to bo followed
was to end the meeting , as the attendance
would nut justify tlio association In running
it without tiny money from the bookmakers.
At 10 o'clock this morning the pool rooms
hero and all over the country were notilled
