Boys, says Shorty, my old alarum
clock is goin, to ring in a minit an' tell
me I bin drean1in'.
This is a fact, says Ed, Non-Skid
was six lengths ahead on the home stretch
an' going strong. We kin start countin'
now, I reckon.
I like to hear th' jingle when I
counts, says Shorty.
About an hour later a telegram came
from Cy. , Eddy tore it open, read it, to
himself, then started on it again.
Well, says Shorty, can't ya figger
out how much ya Won or is it Writ in
Ed gave it to Sam to read. Sam
thought that the luck was too much for
Eddy, so he started in.
Here goes, says he. A
H 'Vile took a big chance. General Santy
Voono had his roll on No Hope, an' when
he seen Skid hit tha' home stretch in the
lead, he pulled his daily revolution,'an'
Skid got shot in the scrape. No Hope
dragged in first. We made quite a mis-
Mistake, howled Shorty, man, it's
a calamity. ,N l1e spoke fur us all.
Four years no-w withifn- thy portals
H ave we spent in work and play 5
Har-el it is for us to leave you,
H ard to turn our diifferefnt ways.
Many are the friends 'we've found here,
Many, too, the happy hours:
And in seeking after knowledge,
Pleasure, 'profit have been ours.
Yet the day 'is to as beckoning:
Time has come when we must part,
Each to take his separate byway,
Each 'upon L'ife's work to start.
S'o it is with Smile and Sorrow,
So it is -we turn away 3
Smile for Clays of pleasure spent here,
Sorrow that we can--not stay.

and odds at the track would be about
twenty to one.
Pretty soon we got to talkin' money,
an' that led to the question as to who was
to do our p1acin'. Just then in comes Cy
Brady. Cy was our printer. He 's some-
wheres between thirty and sixty, can look
either, and admits both. The only time
there 's any hair on his head is when he
puts a brush on it. But then overlookin'
a few faults, Cy is a good sport.
X Cy wanted to know what the mass meet-
ing was about, and after Eddy had ex-
plained it over again, Cy admitted it read
Slip me the roll, says Cy, Nan' I'll
do the rest. '
So we a.greed to pass the word around
and meet at the Arcade that night with
all the money we could raise. About eight,
the boys began to come in, and in about
a half hour the crowd was there, and Cy
had his pencil and pad ready to keep
track of what he took in. The boys had
looked up the field pretty well and felt
that at least they had a fightin' chance.
There was Deadwood, May First,,
The Snail, No Hope, and The
Beetle, not a very hard field for our
Shorty started the ball a rollin' with
fifty plunks. He said he had to pawn his
watch and tip the boss for an advance,
afore he could raise the dough.
Ef I lose, says Shorty, the only
thing between me an' the grave is the ride
in the hearse, so here 's hopin' I
Finally we got Cy started on the
eleven o'clock with plenty of advice and
instructions, not to set in on any poker
games, easy shell guessin' or the likes of
The races was to be at San Juan, just
over the line, and Jimmy Benz who was
on the track wire, agreed to send us word

as the race progressed, and Eddy was to
get it on the phone from the office. That
afternoon was a long one. James XVhit-
eomb Schaefer, the brunette porter, went
around with onlyfthe whites of his eyes
showing. He had ive on the nose.
Jus' like the old NVor1d's Series, says
Eddy. Nothin' but class to us.
Shorty said that his weak heart was
going to have an awful strain, but Eddy
told him Non-Skid could win with only
one bellows. Finally Cy Benz called and
we all clustered around the phone.
They'rcl oiflu shouts Eddy.
Wl1o, the operator? says Shorty.
Skid's ahead an' No Hope pressin',
shouts Ed. -
Non-Skid two lengths ahead at the
quarter, was the next news. P,
I hope she's a long horse, says
Three lengths ahead at the half,
bubbled Eddyg There's nothin' to do
but hall in th' shecklesf'
Just as easy as a potato race, says
No Hope is closin' in, says Eddy.
That's more like nature, says Shorty,
any time I bet, No Hope is sure to win.
This is a horse, ya fool, says Pete
Blair. i .
Aw, I thought it was a new drink.
Skid all alone at the three-quarters.
James, you coon, get me a two bit cigar!

After a report that the best bet was
safe and strong on the home stretch,
there was a lull, The man at the office
said that he had lost the connection, but
would get it again in a jiify. We thought
that Cy must have had some money up
too, and that he had left the phone in his
