eched suih a boom In a (matter of a
centiuy as was developed today at the
Brighton Heaih Hack when, under the

Abbott, came together for a puisp of

wote to det Ide the question ot whlih

Theie was a laiger ciowd picspnt
than was iver .sppii on a New Yotk

simply p u krd and this, despite th
fact that resolved seats with admission
cost ?l, while boes holding four poi
sons were all disposed of at $".0 eaih,
lit addition to the tegular admission.
While tin seating eapailty Is but 3,000,
It was undoubtedly a fact that clone
