Who looks a mustang in the eye?
Changety, chang, chang! Bash! Crash!
So sang Bihbs, his musical gayeties
inaudible to his fellow workmen be
cause of the noise of the machinery.
He had discovered long ago that the
uproar was rhythmical, and it had
been intolerable; but now, on the aft
I ernoon of tlie fourth day of his return,
lie was accompanying the swing and
clash of tlie metals with jubilant va
quero fragments, mingling improvisa
tions of his own among them, and
mocking the zinc eater's crash with
Fearless and bold,
Chang! Bash! Behold!
With a leap from the ground
To the saddle in a bound,
And away—and away!
Tlie long room was ceaselessly thun
dering with metallic sound; the air
was thick with tlie smell of oil; the
floor trembled perpetually: everything
was implacably in motion—nowhere
was there a rest for the dizzied eye.
The first time he had entered tlie place
Bihbs had become dizzy instantly, and
six months of it had only added in
creasing nausea to faintness. But lie
felt neither now. "All day long I'll
send my thoughts to you. You must
keep remembering that your friend
stands beside you." He saw lier there
beside liiin. and the greasy, roaring
place became suffused with radiance.
The poet was happy in his machine
shop; he was still a poet there. And
he ted liis old zinc eater, and sung:
crash, bash, chang!
bang! Bash, chang!

"1 like the machine," said Bibbs.

He was unaware of a sensation (hat

standing with Doctor Gurney behind
the unconscious Bibbs. Sheridan nod
ded to those nearest him—lie had per
sonal acquaintance with nearly all of
them—hut he kept his attention upon
his son. Bibbs worked steadily, never
turning from his machine. Now and
then he varied his musical program
with remarks addressed to the zinc
"Go on, you old crash-basher! Chew

try to bolt your vlttles. Fletcherize,

more? Here's a nice, snlny one."
The words were indistinguishable, but
Sheridan inclined his head to Gurney's
ear and shouted fiercely: "Talkin' to
himself! By George!"
Gurney laughed reassuringly, and
shook his head.
Bibbs returned to song.
Chang! Chang, bash, chang! It's I!

His father grasped him by the arm.
"Here!" he shouted. "Let me show
you how to run a strip through there.
The foreman says you're some better'n
you used to be, but that's no way to
handle— Get out the way and let me
show you once."
"Better be careful." Bibbs warned
him, stepping to one side.
"Careful? Boh'!' Sheridan seized
a strip of zinc from the box. "What
you talkin' to yourself about? Tryin'
to make yourself think you're so
abused you're goin' wrong in the

"You Go Back to Your Work."
At all events, lie made no reply, hut

was not upon it. He continued to talk.
"All you got to look out for Is to keep

"Don't run your hand up with It,"
Bibbs vociferated, leaning toward him.
"Run nothin'! You got to—"
"Look out!" shouted Bibbs and Gur
ney together, and they both sprang for
ward. But Sheridan's right hand had
followed the strip too far, and the zinc
eater had bitten off the tips of the first
and second fingers. He swore vehe

shower of red drops over himself and
Bibbs, but Gurney grasped his wrist,
and said, sharply;
"Come out of here,
the lavatory in the office. Bibbs, fetch
my bag. It's In my machine, outside."
And when Bibbs brought the bag to
the washroom he found the doctor still
grasping Sheridan's wrist, holding the
Injured hand over a basin. Sheridan
had lost color, and temper, too. He
glared over his shoulder at his son as
the latter handed the bag to Gurney.
"You go on back to your work," he
said. "I've had worse snips than that
from a pencil sharpener."
"Oh, no. you haven't!" said Gurney.
"I have too!" Sheridan retorted, an
grily. "Bibbs, you go on back to your
work. There's no reason to stand
around here watch in' ole Doc Gurney

"All right," said Bibbs.

son was passing out of the door. "You

"Yes, sir." And Bibhs returned to
the zinc eater thoughtfully.
Half an hour later Gurney touched
him on the shoulder and beckoned him
outside, where conversation was pos
sible. "I sent him home. Bibbs. He'll
have to be careful of that hand. Go
get your overalls off. I'll take you
for a drive and leave you at home.
"Can't," said Bibbs. "Got to stick
to my job till the whistle blows."
"No, you don't," the doctor returned,
smothering a yawn. "He wants me to
take you down to my office and give
you an overhauling to see how much
harm these four days on the machine
have done you. I guess you folks have
got that old naan pretty thoroughly
upset, between you, up at your house!
But I don't Intend to go over you. I
can see with my eyes half shut—"
"Yes," Bibbs interrupted, "that'«
what they are."
"I say I can see you're starting out,
at least, in good shape. What's made

"Weil, well! ' The doctor stretched
himself and stamped his foot repeat
edly. "Better come along and take a

"Not at all," said Bibbs. "I'm going
to stand by the old zinc enter till live
o'clock. I tell you I like it!"
"Then I suppose that's the end of
your wanting to write."
"I don't know about that." Bibbs
said, thoughtfully; "but the zinc eater
doesn't Interfere with my thinking, at
least. It's better than being in busi
ness: I'm sure of that. I don't want
anything to change. I'd be content to
lead just the life I'm leading now to
the end of my days."
"You do beat the devil!" exclaimed
Gurney. "Your father's right when he
tells me you're a mystery. Perhaps
the Almighty knew what he was about
when he made you, but it takes a lot
of faith to believe it! Well, I'm off.
Go on back to your murdering old ma
chine." He climbed into his car,
which he operated himself, but he re
frained from setting it immediately in
motion. "Well, I rubbed it in on the
old man that you had warned him not
to slide his hand along too far. and
that he got hurt because he didn't pay
attention to your warning, and because
he was trying to show you how to do
something you were already doing a
great deal better than he could. You
tell him I'll be around to look at it
and change the dressing tomorrow
But when he paid the promised visit
the next morning he did more than
change the dressing upon the damaged
hand. The Injury was severe of its
kind, and Gurney spent a long time
over it. though Sheridan was rebellious
and scornful, being brought to a de
gree of tractability only by means of
horrible threats and talk of amputa
tion. However, he appeared at the
dinner table with his hand supported
In a sling, which he seemed to regard
as an indignity, while the natural in
quiries upon tlie subject evidently
struck him ns deliberate insults. Mrs.
Sheridan, having been unable to con
tain her solicitude several times dur
ing the day. and having been checked
each time in a manner that blanched
her check, hastened to warn Koscoe
and Sibyl, upon their arrival at live,
to omit any reference to the injury and
to avoid even looking at the sling if
they nossiblv could.

WIND AFFECTS CONSUMPTION
OF GASOLINE IN AUTOS
Motorists who complain of the high
price of gasoline should have a few
harsh words to say for Old Boreas.
The god of the winds, as shown by
tests conducted during the past week,
increase the gas consumption fully
forty per cent when he is at work with
ordinary velocity: when he is really
trying, Mr. Wind undoubtedly makes
his batting average much higher.
E. E. Thompson, president of the
Thompson-La Casse company at Fres
no, kept a careful check on wind and
gasoline when he made the run from
tlie Raisin City to San Francisco. The
trip north was made on Tuesday, and
the return journey Thursday, and
order to learn if the wind velocity
was anywhere near the same Mr.
Thompson inquired at the govern
ment weather bureau regarding condi
tions on the two days. The official
report was that the wind speed was
approximately the same.
Coming up the valley from Fresno
the Thompson Maxwell touring car
showed what its owner thought was a
mighty poor gasoline average. On the
197-mile run nine and a half gallons
of fllud were used. This meant that
the carburetor took a gallon of gaso
line for each 20.7 miles of the road
Going home the fuel consumption
absolutely different tliaf Mr.
Thompson paused to inquire, and fin
ally placed the blame with Boreas.
However, road conditions going south
from the Bay City were also forced to
shoulder part of the blame, for the
"roll" is all in favor of the south
The Maxwell used up
just five gallons and one gill of gaso
"Motorists looking for high gaso
line averages want to consider the
wind as a mighty strong factor," said
Mr. Thompson. "I have made the
Fresno-San Francisco run hundreds
of times, but not until recently did I
pay much attention to fuel consump
tion. The difference between the
northern and southern runs was so
pronounced that it could hardly be
laid to the grade conditions, and not
until I thought of the wind was I able
to place the blame."
Motorists will find that the above
conditions are quite similar in Idaho,
as E. S. Johnson of the Johnson Auto
Sales Co. has made several tests of

To keep these chautauQuas in opera

hundreds of people and the list of men

the summer months to this kind of

notables. Besides the hundreds of

of advance men, college crew boys and

The Chautauqua of today is operated

other movements of the present

financially is a success. When it is
understood that fifteen millions of

that the Chautauqua is exerting an in
