“My dear reader, I am going to give you a little advice. If you feel that you must illustrate the proverb that "a fool and his money are soon parted," I will tell you how to get rid of your surplus cash. Take from the racing calendar for the day the names of all the horses in all the races. Write them all on separate slips of paper, put these in a hat and shake them up. Draw one and bet on that one. You will lose your bet of course, but you will have had some slight chance to win, and that you will not have by listening to and following the advice of a tout. If you visit the race track and one of the fraternity offers to give you a tip for a consideration, you give him a tip without any consideration. Give it to him on his nose, and if the flexors and extensors of your right leg are in good condition, kick him. He will not complain.”
