Floyd had lied to him: systematically deceived him; In order to escape from his too pressmg friend-" ship,, no doubt.. He remembered that the mechanician had always shrunk from his personal advances and only yielded to them under, compulsion. Now he understood the letter which he had received the previous nSght from Green, and Mr. Bailey's confused answer to his question about Floyd. He had been put off to be amused by Jessica, until Floyd was again ready to use him in the plans for the Comet factory. Jessica! Stanton stopped short in the dark hall. Had Jessica also deceived him? Was she too play ing a part in order to keep him in a good humor? He struck his clenched hand violently against the wall beside him. :- - "What's that?" cried the affriehted Mr. Green, within the roon. "Who " "I ran against the wall, in the dark," Stanton called, his voice . a little hoarse, but everily controlled. "Good night." . ; "Good night. We'll fix things all right, Stanton; you take a good sleep." "I shall," promised the driver. He did net.'' At seven o'clock,- the next morning; Mr. Green burst into the hotel dining room Where Stanton was at breakfast. "He's got them! They're . coming," he rejoiced maniacally. "The car wasn't at, Brighton, but be located it ten miles farther over, on a siding. And he raised such a disturbance around the express people's ears that they unloaded the tires then wid there, and rushed out two motor trucks . to cart them across to vs. They'll be here by eight . and the race "starts at nine.

T The pompadoured. waitress was leaning between them, placing a tea pot on the table. , ;. ;: "Chocolate, sir, ehe giggled. T Stanton, pushed back his chair, then checked himself as sharply, '- "No," he stated, and set the pot awav from before him. - The movement was not violent, but there was in it so much poorly re strained force that the china . vessel shattered upon striking the table and all the fragrant brown liquid ran over the white cloth. .The girl exclaimed in dismay, Mr. . Green stared ; Stanton only dropped a dollar-bili beside . ni3 plate and rose to go. "I-arzi ready," he aignified. y r The Mercury camp was a ecetie of animated preparation, twenty minutes later, when Floyd emerged from the dense press'of arriving spectators and gained, the,- inclosure. The assistant manager almost received him in his arms, the rest of the force clustered around. -Gay, blithe. triumpliant, here,- if ; it wasn't for you, he . de clared, once. , v -': .'j ' : "I'm awfully bright," Floyd agreed, but he did not smile. . The machines were preparing to go to' their stations for the start, Stan ton was ia Ms seat at the wheel, when Floyd-came over, and teaning against the car,, looked up into the driver face. : ".: .: "What Jiave I done?" he asked sln ply. . . . : , Both irten were still unmasked, their privacy of speech was secured by the uproar around them.

A tinge of scarlet streaked Floyd's pallor, he bent his head. - "Yes, I lied to you,' he admitted. Stantoa'a gauntleted hand closed oii his wheel. : . "There was no need.

No doubt you had all you could stand of me, I'm Jiot precisely lovable and I would have understood . If you had just told me so. But I will liave no friend I can't trust alt the "way. Get in we will finish this race, and part." Floyd raiEed his head and gave to the stern scrutiny his caftdidv,gray eyes. - -: .- . "Stanton, trust me all the way now." he appealed. "Can you do that?" Can you take my word that your friendship is the only thing in the world I want? If I deceived you,' It was so I could be- here to race with you to-day. I will tell you afterward, I can't now." "You mean " Floyd held out his hand. ; "I've got everything badly mixed up, but it's xlean to offer you, Stanton. As swiftly impulsive as his condem nation was Stanton's movement as he bent to give the clasp. "All right," he said curtly. "Get In; I ought to have given you a chance." And as the other-obeyed: "I didn't mean to meet you as I did. an hour ago, anyhow; it slipped me.". "They're signaling," warned Mr. Green, hurrying over. "Are you ready? Both of you?" From his place beside Stanton, Floyd turned a face of Incarnate sun shine ta the assistant manager, a face so changed in its color and glow and warmth that all who saw drew breath in sheer wonder. "We're ready." his lilting tones as sured.. "Don't worry." Stanton laughed with him. fastening on the mask, and sent the Mercury rolling forward. The world was right once more, and life sane. It was an exquisite morning; wind less, cool, with happy little effects of snowy cloud against a cobalt-blue sky. The "October air was a summer distilled cordial, an ethereal intoxi cant. The racers had no time to no tice it, yet the effect was there. The speed made on the first laps was record-breaking. The . brown or gray 6treak of road ahead,"the deadly turns, the treacher ous smooth hill down which It was so easy to make speed and still more easy to meet disaster for the first hour Stanton had no attention to spare from these. Moreover, the spectators were massed over the course in many places, recoiling just enough to leave a lane for each car's passage, and so imposing another anxiety upon . the drivers who knew the swerve of a foot must bring-death to some one. ... "Car behind," Floyd's clear accents gave the familiar cautions, from time to time. "He's tryin to get us before the turn. . The Atalanta's head in the dust." ; . The pacer maintained was the fastest at which the Mercury could be held -to the road. It was Stanton's way. to gain the lead first; when possible, then keep - a Bteady average regardless of his rivals' spurts of speed; unless the race were too short to permit such tactics or the contest too close. Now, at the end of the second hour Floyd made the desired announcement, as they shot past the grand-stand and the bulletin boards. - "We're leadin. The tires have been holdin' fine look out for them this round." Stanton moved his head affirmative ly, his narrowed eyes unswerving from the line of course ahead. Heeding the advice, he did : take the turns more carefully. - , ,(TO BE CONTINUED.) Bird's Nest in Mail Box.

LESSON FOR JUNE 15 ' JACOB BEFORE PHARAOH LESSON TEXT Gen. J47'.l-12. ' - GOLDEN TEXT "To them that lyve God all things work together for gooi." Rom. 8:28, R. V. , I. Joseph and Jacob, w. 1-6. Jos- . eph's meeting with his aged father is a beautiful picture. Again Judafi comes into prominence as a sort of ambassador in leading the old man into this new land and to present him before his son, who now is exalted so highly among the. rulers of the earth. In this he is a prophecy of that" day when the descendants of Jacob shall gather before Him "whom they pierced." Joseph does not await their coming but "went up to meet them" (46:29) as they passed through the nrovince of Goshen' It is true that Jacob and his sons came to , Egypt at Pharaoh's personal invitation (45; 17, 18), yet there were sufficient reason e why Joseph might have been ashamed of, or fearful to associate with, these his kinsmen. His father was a plain countryman. His brothers were not an altogether reputable crowd. And, further, they were shepherds and "every shepherd is an abomination unto the Egj'ptians" (46:34). But they are his brethren and he was glad to confess them even as Christ will gladly confess us. Joseph's' Great Wisdom. We have here another evidence of Joseph's great wisdom in that he com mands them to remain . in ' Goshen while he goes before them unto Pha raoh to prepare the way. , Even so not all are to come at once Into Pha raoh's presence (47:2). In Acts :1S we read that this cavalcade consisted of three score and - fifteen souls,, though this probably did not include slaves and other dependents. It is very significant that , Joseph secures Goshen for his kinsfolk. It 'was near to himself (45:10); it was separated from "all unnecessary contact with the Egyptians (v. 34) and it was a place Superior to all ethers for them-as. herdsmen (v. 6). Joseph anticipates Pharaoh's question (v. 3) and gave his brothers instruction how to an swer, but they seem to have gone somewhat beyond in that they make request that they might dwell in Goshen. Joseph charged them to speak of themselves as keepers of cattle. II., Jacob and Pharaoh, vv. 7-12. Pharaoh does not seem to be overly enthusiastic over these five brothers whom Joseph presented (v. 5). Aside from the fact that they were Joseph's brothers, there was nothing to com mend them. No more have we any thing to commend us in the sight of God . except that we are Christ's brethren; though that is an abund ance. - Pharaoh and Jacob. ; The picture of old Jacob in the presence of Pharaoh is striking in one respect at least, the fact -that he who came to this land for the blessing of the sustenance 'of life, should bless Pharaoh. Jacob confer red upon Pharaoh in his blessing more than Pharaoh conferred upon Jacob J .- vuiug va. ait bJ ir u self and his family. This act upon. the part of Jacob is suggestive of the knowledge of, the purposes of GoaV Pharaoh inquires as to Jacob's age and he replies that his "pilgrimage" had been 120 .years. He who had entered into all the rights of the birth right and the blessings of God's cove nant people, exercised those rights, when he stands before the great Pha raoh. He had caught the truth that, an earthly life is but a pilgrimage. - Conclusion. - Not- included in our lesson, but in this 'section, we have set before us Joseph'.s administration, of the affairs of Egypt which give us-further- insight into the greatness of this man. In the ?lose of the lesson proper, verses 11-12, there is presented to; us Joseph's provision for hi:; father and his brethren. This is -y type of Christ in' His. care for us.' In the midst of dangers (Jno. 10:10, 28) and S ! x i r -r -r W lamme, ana misunaerstanaing tie is ever near. " Joseph Is now satisfied for he has Ms own near, unto him. Jesus Christ is longing that we may be with Him in thz . place which He has. gone to prepare for us, John 14:2, :, 17, 24, though He has not left us comfortless during' these day of separation, John. 14:23. Joseph fed . his brothers on the best the land afforded (v. 11), even 5:11) and the new' wine (Prov; 3:9, 10).
