American ynungsteia, tho laughing lit

landers and French nnd uumcious half
castes, all ut the once understood the
conditions of tho contest, entered nnd
worn working poll moll from the stnrt.
Tho dozen or no of Chlucao members
of the racing, shouting throng, never
too eager, never Impatient, ever cauti
ous, ever careful, thought on tho pro
posal of the newspaper owners for
three or four days. Then they let It bo
known that dlmlnntlvo Ah Far, chief of
their section, was to try for the bicycle.
And the tunning urehhiB asked nil
manner of questions to make suro that

In n week Ah Tar had moto regular
customers than any other boy on tho

glo flguie. Tim natives, smart for 11
short dlslai'i-o, but with no liking for
11 lengthy ionic, were tho flr&t to quit.
Tho Portuguese marto a bravo showing
before they left tho field, muttering on
tho Chinese; Imprecations dark but elo
quent. Tho Americans and tho Hrltlsh
era retired with lather bad grace, their
comment Impairing their dignity of
blood. Tin Germans in a body, n few
of tho Jnpancno nnd quite n contingent
of tho half-castes proved themselves
equal, in borne degrto to tho paco set
by tho Chinese, who In their quiet, good

liarity of Us composition, Moro Chin
ese bought a dnlly newspaper than over

Ladles becamo Interested in tho affair
nnd directly fell victim of Ah Far's
winsome ways nnd nppctlto for nickels.
Ah Far's llttlo legs carried his small
body and open yellow countenance
miles nnd miles every afternoon nnd
evening. Uy udvlco of sago old Chln
cso who wore big round spectacles, Ah
Far was prodigal in tho purchnso of
those puzzling bits of tea box litera
ture bought nnd burned In tho Joss
houses, whero tho attendants took to
buying tho dally paper. As may bo
surmised, there wero n lot of Ah Far'a
customers to whom tho date of tho
items of his merchandise was a matter
of tlfo "utmost indifference. This was,
of course, usldo from prlzo considera
tions .a matter of much advnntngo to

tho boy. Ho mndo n' confident of any
person who chosa to engage him hi con
versatlon nnd was so stralgtforwnrd
thnt he fascinated. His father had n
little otoro In n lowly suburb. There
were bIx brohtcru and two sisters, both
tho latter married and with families
'of their own. Four of tho brothers
' were assisting In selling papers. All
seven went to two schools In tho morn
ingtwo hours at English nud two at
Chinese. When Ah Kar becamu a man,
raid he, with nil tho Ingenuousness of
his total of ten years, he was going to
China, where, his father and mother
were born nnd ho was going to make a
nowspnper and havo tho boyB sell it
and glvo them a wagonctto nnd a din
ner every Thanksgiving Day. And If
he won tho blcyclo ho would lot his
brothers mid eomo of his friends try It.
And ho would tako n black Instead of a
bluo framo beeauso black was a color
that lasted all the time. And ho did
not caro for the second plizo of a suit
of clothes, for he had two suits already
and 11 pair of leather nho03 for Sunday
Onco during the face Ah Fur was
quite 111 a couple of dayu. Ills slanty
llttlo eyes lost their luster. They look
ed like rusty, Ill-shaped beads. His
mlto of a body was racked and tortured
with pain nnd fever. But ho put In nn
nppenranco right along. Ho could send
no proy to tho window whero tho sym-

pathetic boss of the newsboys handed
out tho papers. When Ah Fur recov
ered ho treated all around to lichee
nuts nnd candled watermelon seeds
nud mado a gladsome, round of tho Joss
houses. At no time, did Ah Far loso
sight of tho (ifrmnii boy who nt .length
enmo to b3 considered, the slnglo dnn
eerous rival to tho Chinese. Tho Ger
man boy was handicapped In having
but one brother. Thcsa two had tho
better of Ah Far on tho water front
nud in a few of tho business districts
but they know not Chinatown, had fow,
it nny, lady patrons nnd wcro not suc
cessful at nil In tho garrison of tho
American uoldlcrs, ono of tho strong
holds of Ah Far ayd his tribe.
Thero could bo but ono ending. Nenr
lng tho closo tho German boy attempt
ed to resort to some diplomacy, but his
partisans wcio thwarted by tho Ah Far
people The half of Honolulu had be
come Interested nnd tho Dnlletln ofllco
wns thronged dally with people who
wero watching tho figures. 'When the
returns wero nil in tho blcyclo which
Ah Far, In tho most matter of fact way
Imaginable, selected somo days before,
was delivered to him. Ho was grateful,
tho smile becamo a laugh, but that
was tho extent ot tho demonstration.
The German boy was so downcast that
the newspaper owners generously gavo
him -a wheel also. Ho took a bluo
Ah Far took a day off. Tho rat trap
pedals did not hurt his baro foot. It
was a strain for him to reach tho end
of the long hangers. With admirable
foresight he took a framo Ave years
toolargo. All day ho pumped with ono
of his brothers or a child of ono of his
brothers or n child of ono of his sis-
ters seated on the handlo bars. Ho
could rldo well, for ho had learned on a
borrowed wheel against tho day he
should come into his own. Ah Far
raced to his homo and his mother with
tho wheel. Tho father nnd nil tho
brothers had seen it In tho storo on
Fort street. Next 0. round of tho Josa
houses was mado nnd tho treatment the
boy received made him feel almost that
ho was a man. Then he went to ;hc
houses of his married sisters, whero ho
wasn Hon nnd whero ho was mado much
of by tho fathers and mothers or his
brothers-in-law. Tho elderly people nt
these places and all through Chinatown
wcro greatly Interested in tho construc
tion of tho blcyclo. They had never be-
foro inspected a machine nt close range.
Tho pneumatic tiro was to them a mar
vel and tho whole schema of construc
tion something to bo admired as fur
ther ovldenco of tho white man's gen
ius and skill. Of course every China
man wanted to know tlu price of such
a blcyclo and two-thirds of them alt
but fainted when they lonrned tho sum.
Ah Far, aboard his now pos&csslon,
from which ho dismounted or upon
which ho vaulted like a trick rider, was
a mandarin for a day with the Chinese
in their quarter of tho town and with
tho retailers and laundrymcu scattered
about tlio city. His prop'10 picdlctod
great things for him nud offered tho
most effusive) congratulatory messages
to his father and mother Ah Far was
felicitated lavishly by his frlend3
amongst tho foreigners And with his
Inborn equanimity thanked them
gracefully and next day wnu urging
thoso who had been transient custodi
ers to continue handing him nickels for
hls papers, and next day ho again mado
acknowledgement to tho prUo givers
and said "his mother llko vclly much
and all China pcoplo sa vtlly good. '
