HAD LOTS OF FRIENDS
By J. M. CARSON.
Leonard's velocipede, with Its rub
her tires, sent by his UI!ncle Torn for
his birthday, created quite a stir whru
it arrived. After it was t.aken from
the crate all the family admired its
perfect mechanism and its beauty, but
Leonard said nothing.
"What do you think of it sonP" ask
ed Leonard's father.
The boy camnto out of his trance with
a deep sigh of satisfaction. "Gee, but
won't the kids all be Jealous!" he said
The long hall between the dining
room and the living room was immedi
ately turned into practice ground.
Leonard's father gave him some ex
pert advice. The boy learned quickly.
All that evening and the next day was
devoted to hard, steady practece.
"I think you can ride well enough
to take the wheel out of doors tomor
row," Leonard's father told him at
the end of the second day of train
"I don't want to take it out yet,"
replied the boy. "I want to learn a
few tricks first." And he proceeded
to learn tricks that consisted of riding
without holding the handlebars, riding
with one foot or holding with one
hand, and vrtious combinations of
these interesting performances.
The next day was Saturday. All the
children were playing out of doors.
Leonard was now ready to make his
sensational appeaarnce. He was cer

as he chose to call It, would make a
Several of the boys in the neigh
borhood were the proud possessors of
velocipedes, but none of these had rub

Then, too, Leonard had been having
quarrels with some of the boys lately
and now was his chance to ewes
With an air of conscious importance
he walked out into the strcet, trun
lu g his velocipede before him,
m ated it, and rode away to the cot
ner, then turned back. Immediately
ti report was spread the Leonard
had the swellest bike on the street.

"From my Uncle Tom."
"Does it CO good, Len?"
"Dandy," laconically replied Laos'
"Bet you can't do no tricks-yet."
"Sare, I kin. Tricks easy," Leon

beast ones. The spectators were prop

"Say. Len, I'll let you ride 0 my

Leonard made no reply to this ofer.
"Oh. Len. I ain't mad at you." came
from another boy. "You kin come and
