Bunch and I had framed up a plan
a hereby we were to corral the money
that Uncle Peter was losing at the
ace track, giving it back to him later
with proper admonitions.. We were
reeking Ikey Schwartz with a view
zo having him act for us as book
maker, and we soon located him in
ront of the Metropole. In order to
deAtle him, Bunch led the way to
"Leave everything to me," Bunch
whispered, as we shaved our hats and
p:;t our feet under a table.
"What kind of gasolene do you
want to put in your boiler room?" I
inquired, as the waiter drew near.
"A quart of Green Seal Sec," Bunch
ordered. "That's the only fuel for
little me. It has every other kind of
su:ds pushed off the ice. Green Seal

Ikey flashed a grin and tried to

Ikey belonged to the "dis, dose
and dem" push.
Every sentence he uttered was full
of splintered grammar.
Every time Ikey opened his word
chest the King's English screamed for
help, and literature got a kick in the
He was short and thin, but it was a
deceptive thinness. His capacity for
storing away free liquids was awe
inspiring and a sin.
I think Ikey must have been hollow
from the neck to the ankles, with
emergency bulkheads In both feet.
It soon developed that Ikey had
been ,p against a losing streak, and
he was about ready to quit till his
hoodoo went off duty, but if we were
willing to pay for the chalk he'd keep

low our instructions to the letter.
"How much will it set us back for
running expenses?" I inquired, while
Ikey dove into the wine-glass and
came up again for a long breath.
"Only a few hundred," Bunch broke
in. "That's merely a detail, John.
Besides, we'll make Uncle Peter pay
for the medicine. It it cures his at

he won't care. You don't suppose
we're going to open a life-saving sta
tion for his benefit and pay for the
privilege, do you? Not for mine,
"You're right, Bunch," I acquiesced;
"we'll deduct all expenses before
handing Uncle Peter back his squan
dered fortune; that's only fair."
"Is dis old geezer upholstered wit'
.coin?' Ikey asked.
"Who, Uncle Peter?" I answered.
"'Say, he has nerly all there is in the
world. Every time he signs a check
a National bank goes out of exist
ence. He tried to count it once, but
he sprained his wrists and had to

deeply interested he forgot to dip up
"Uncle Peter," I went on; "why,
w n he goes into a bank the govern

Papa!' Whenever he cuts coupons it's
like a sheepshearing. He has mus

Every time Uncle Peter thinks how
much money he has be gets enlarge

"Den why not let dat old Guzam
upset his dopgh-pan?" asked Ikey in
astonishment. "Ybuse is committin'
a crime to stop an old Gasabo like dat
from cuttin' loose. What he needs
is a helper and I ain't a bit busy."
"John has his josh rags on: don't
mind him, Ikey!" admonished Bunch.
"Uncle Peter is well fixed, but if he
keeps on throwing his coin at the
horses they'll kick their initials all
over his assets, sure thin. Now,
boys, it's all undestood, eh? Ikey,
we'll meet you at the track tomorrow
and arrange our plan of campaign.

Ikey went overboard for a final
swim in the Green Seal, when sud
denly Bunch tapped me on the arm.
"Look!" he said, and the next in
stant 1 beheld Clark J., Aunt Martha
and Tacks sailing over in our d!rec
With a whispered admonition to
Bunch to keep Iksy still I went for
ward to meet my wn, her aunt and
her small brother.
"It was such a delightful day that
Aunt Martha and I couldn't resist the
temptation to do a little shopping."
Clara J. rattled on; "and then we de

lovely! John, hadn't we better take
another table so that your fridendly
confencs may not be interrupted?"
I hastened to assure Clara J. that
it wasn't a conference at all. We had
met Mr. Schwarts quite by accident.

every apartment so that the lessee

Ikey never cracked a smile.
"In Mr. Schwartz's apartment
houses," I continued, while Bunch
kicked my shins under the table; "you
will find self-freezing refrigerators
and selfl-leaving servants. All the
rooms are light rooms, when you

overlook the park and all of them

"Quit your joshing, John! you'll

Bunch somewhat nervously, but Ikey's
grin never flickered.
"Is Mr. Schwartz deaf and dumb?"
Clara J. whispered.
"Intermittently so," I whispered

Aunt Martha heard me and the
good old soul was all sympathy at
once. She sat next to our bookmaker
friend so she leaned over in an ef
fort to be pleasant, put her mouth
close to the astonished Ikey's ear
and yelled in a shrill treble, "Lovely
day, Mr. Schwarts!"
Pow Ikey looked reproachfully at
the old lady a second, then with gath

the chair and struck the floor with a

this unexpected effort on Mr.
Schwartz's part that she upset her
coffee and Ikey got most of it in the

When peace was fnally restored

Bunch was fixing his throat for an
other choke when suddenly my youth
hll brother-in-law, Tacks, came to the
surface with a letter in his hand.
Tacks had spotted the missive ly
ing on the floor near Ikey's chair, so
young Mr. Buttinski had to get busy
and pick it up.
"Here's a letter I found on the
floor," he chirped, and then to show
the profound depths of his learning
the little imp read the address in
slow, deliberate tones, "Mr. I.
Schwartz, Bookmaker, Brighton Beach
Race Track, New York."
Glara J. went into the le business
right away quick.
Ikey never whimpered.
Then Bunch took the letter from
the open-eyed Tacks and leaped to
the rescue while I came out of the

and Ikey was wise to the tip in a min
Clara J. sniffed suspiciously and I
knew she had the gloves on.
"Mr. Schwarts's affliction is terri
ble," she said with a chill in every
word. "How did you converee with
him before our arrival"'
"Oh! he understands the lip lan
guage and can talk back on his fin
gers," I hastened to explain, looking
hard at Ikey, whose mask-like face
gave no token that he understood
what was going on.
"I thought I understood.you to say
Mr. Schwartz is a rdll estate dealeri"
Peaches continued, while the ther
mometer went lower and lower.
"So he is," I replied, mentally ar
ranging pleasant surprises for Tacks
in the near future.
"Then why does his correspondent
address him as a Bookmaker?"' my
wifb said slowly, and I could hear the
icebergs grinding each other all
"I think I can explain that," Bunch
put in quietly. Then, With the utmost
deliberation he looked Ikey in the eye
and said, "Mr. Schwartz, it's really
none of my business, but would you
mind telling me why you, a real es
tate dealer, should have a letter in
your possession which is addressed
to you as a Bookmaker? Answer me
on your fingers."
Ikey delivered the goods.
In a minute he had both paws
working overtime and such a knuckle
twisting no mortal man ever indulged
"He says," Bunch began to inter
pret, "that the letter is not his. It is
intended for Isadore Schwarts, a
wicked cousin of his who follows the
races. Mr. Schwarts is now complain
ing bitterly with his fingers because
his letters and those intended for

Ikey's fingers kept on working
nervously as though he felt it his duty
to wear them out and the perspira

"Tell him to cease firing," I said to
Bunch; "he'll sprain his fingers and
lose his voice."
Ikey doubled up all his eight flngers
and two thumbs in one final shout

I could see that the storm was over,
although she still glanced suspicious

"Buy Ikey two more quarts of
Green Seal and let him wade around
in it," I whispered to Bunch as we
started for the depot.
As we pulled out of the Mayonnaise
Mansion I looked back at Ikey to
thank him with a farewell nod.
He was half way under the table,
holding both hands to his sides, and
making funny faces at the carpet.

Among the luxuries of our bills of
fare there is not one that is more ap

and delicately spread with fresh but

three tablespoonfuls of dry, highly sea

sifted flour seasoned with salt and pap

of butter and cold water as for pastry.
Turn onto the floured baking board and
roll out thin. Cut half the paste into
straws and the rest into rings. Bake
until yellow and crisp in a moderate

Rich and elaborate salads are served
as a course by themselves, but when
a salad is to accompany a meat course,
it should be simple in character and
served on individual salad plates. Very
often the salad is placed on such plates
and the dressing passed with it on a
separate boat or bowl; this manner has
much to commend it.
With duck, rich fish and water

are made with a good allowance of
