the mechanician had always shrunk

Maided to them uader compulsion.
Mow he understood the tetter which
be had received the previous night
Koflt Green, and Mr. Bailey's confused
irwer to his question about Floyd.

At seven o'clock, tho next mornlnir.
Mr. Green burst into tho hotel dtnlnc
room where Stanton war at breakfast.
"He's got them! They're coming,"
he rejoiced maniacally. "Tho car
wasn't at Brighton, but he 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 and there,
and rushed out two motor trucks to
cart them across to us. They'll be
here by eight and the raee starts at

wiped his, forehead. "Ddnt you want
to come out to the course, after you

which arrives in fifteen minutes, If he
isn't smothered by the crowd. I never

emotionally. His dark face gave an
effect of bronsellkei Immobility, his
blue-black eyes hsld steel glints.
"Well," the assistant manager re
sumed, and paused.
The pompadoured waitress was
leaning between them, placing a tea
pot on the table. '
"Chocolate.lr," ahe giggled.
Stanton pushed back, his chair, then
checked himself as sharply.
"Ko," he stated, and set the pot
awayrfrom before him.

outstretched hand fell by bis side and
be slowly paled, all tho laughter wiped
from his face. , t
"1 am ready for work," he gravely
reported, after a brief pause. "When
you want me, send for me, please."
"Very well," came the chilling reply.
, It was an hour before the actual
start Thero waa sufficient to be done
to keep every one occupied, especially
after the trucks loaded with tires
came to the camp. Mr. Green, still
purple with indignation, contrived to
retain Floyd with htm aad away from

"Stanton, trust mo all tha.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

Floyd was leaning over the back, un
strapping the extra tires, before Stan
ton had brought the car to a standstill.
The two men were out on the ground
together, dragging forth tools. Ringed
about by pushing, exclaiming specta
tor, they worked with quick precision,
wasting no time in speech. Dust
wrapped, two big cars sped by them,
the red one hanging doggedly at the'
flank ot the white. 'n?
"George thinks he's wlrintn'' lisped
Floyd mockingly. "Dut he Isn't coin'
to; we are."
Stanton was on his feet again. .,
"In with the tools," he directed,
Dut the blue-black eyes and gray
exchanged one smiling glance before
the Mercury sprang forward.
The race began Its third hour, aa
Stanton started out to regain his lost
lead. It was noon, a dazzling, breath-'

expanse of color and movement they

In pursuit of their rivals.
There was a bridge, back there,
across a shallow running brook shut In
by a strip ot autumn-tinted woodland.
