and imaginary dollars one may buil

zilian is a great air-castle architect
His material, always at hand, is th
lottery ticket. The lottery in Brazi
is as much an institution as the daily
newspaper or the milkman, just a
it once was more or less so in th
United States.
A Spanish immigrant woman bough
a lottery ticket as she walked down
the gang plank of the steamer tha
brought her to the new world. When
she arrived in the city she found that
she had won the big prize of the
day's drawing. She returned to Spain
on the same ship, richer than her
wildest dreams.
Petro Silveira, a working man,
dreamed that he was to win the Christ-
mas lottery prize. His dream told
him the winning number. He sold
all his possessions to obtain the num-
ber. His extraordinary faith was
communicated to his neighbors and
friends. The day of the drawing he
was accompanied to the "chapel of
chance" by thousands of friends and
curious persons who had heard his
story. As the six little girls spun the
fateful wheels the number that turn-
ed up was not that held, by Petro.
Petro died in an asylum.
Extravagant hope and tragedy is the
story of the lottery in Brazil. The
rich Brazilian buys his lottery ticket
as he takes his morning coffee-by
habit. The poor Brazilian saves and
skimps and often goes in debt for his
"chance." One wins every day. Hun-
dreds of thousands never win.
Although several states have their
own lotteries the big game is the fed-
eral lottery, operated by an anony-
mous corporation on a government
concession. The government super-
vises the drawings and sale of tickets
and takes five per cent of the receipts.
There is a drawing every week day
with special prizes for holidays, rang-
ing from 15,000 to 250,000 dollars
American money. The prices of the
tickets are fixed in accordance with
the day's prize-from twenty-five
cents to ten dollars.
Business houses often sell their
wares by the aid of the lottery. Pianos,
watches, motorcycles, clothing, even
houses, are sold on the "club plan,"
by which the buyer pays in install-
ments, receiving a number with the
first installment. If his number comes
out in the lottery before he has com-
pleted his installments he wins his
purchase without further payment. It
is needless to add that the prices are
made to cover losses by this system.
The sale of lottery tickets gives em-
ployment to several thousand men.
There are lottery ticket houses in
every block, and agents make a house
to house canvass, crying their num-
bers in the street. The lottery ticket
vender is a picturesque figure as he
strolls down the streets crying his
number. He shouts, "Twenty cantos
(five thousand dollars), twenty can-
tos today."
Perhaps as a natural result of the
moral support given the lottery by the
government all other gambling is
"wide open." The "lid" is applied
half-heartedly at infrequent intervals.
The races and pool rooms attract their
quota of players, and at a dozen or
more "clubs" in Rio, roulette, bacarat,
campista, monte, poker and all the
games that delighted Americans of
the old west are in full swing with
"the sky the limit."

s hold its sixteenth annual state confer-
e ence in this city October 17, 18, and
19. The meetings will be held in Sarah
t Caswell Angell hall and Hill audi-
torium. Several noted speakers have
been engaged and an excellent pro-
gram arranged, while four interesting
exhibits will be shown.
The opening session of the conven-
tion will be Tuesday evening, October
17, at which time Gov. W. N. Ferris is
to speak. October 18 is to be visitors'
day, and a program has been arranged
with special reference to instruction
in patriotism. Such subjects as "Work
Among Children," and "The Farm
Born," will be handled by Mr. Floyd
Starr, general manager of the Starr
Commonwealth for Boys; Judge Carl
.Franke, of the Blind Babies' home of
Monroe; Mrs. Anna Ernberg, of Berea
College, Berea, Ky., and others.
Wednesday evening, Regent W. L.
Clements will lecture on "Some Puri-
tan Books," illustrating his lecture
with slides made especially for the
occasion. As far as possible the names
of those sons and daughters of the
Daughters of the American Revolu-
tion who are attending the University
have been learned, and invitations have
been sent to them for the reception in
honor of the governor which is to be
held Wednesday evening in Sarah Cas-
well Angell hall. Any who have not
received invitations are asked to notify
the state regent of the society, Mrs.
William H. Waite, 1706 Cambridge
Road, who will be glad to see that an
invitation is sent directly.
Various entertainments have been
provided for the members of the con-
ference. Wednesday afternoon the gov-
ernors and residents of the Martha
Cook building will entertain the mem-
bers of the conference with an in-
formal tea, and Thursday noon the
board of governors of Newberry Resi-
dence will tender them a luncheon.
Thursday afternoon memorial services
will be held in Hill auditorium, at
which a special musical program will
be given under the direction of Prof.
A. A. Stanley.
The four exhibits includes one which
will show the handiwork of the Mich-
igan Indians and is a collection of
baskets. The collection was made by
Mrs. L. Victor Sydell, state chairman
of art and literature, who toured among
the Indian settlements of the state this
summer in the hope that the Daugh-
ters of the American Revolution would
be able to find a market for the work
of the Indian born of this state and
thus keep alive one of our native arts.
Another of the exhibits shows the
fireside industries of the people of the
southern mountains and consists of a
collection of linens and other fabrics
which have been woven by hand. The,
boys of the Starr Commonwealth will
present an exhibit of bird houses made
by themselves in their manual train-r
ing classes. There is also to be a col-
lection of pictures of markers, bould-
ers, and tablets which have been erect-
ed on historic spots in Michigan.
The Michigan society of the Daugh-
ters of the American Revolution is the
first of the state societies, as far as
is known, to establish in a state uni-
versity a student loan fund. This
