was a boy, when you used to put your
hand upon my forehead as I went to

child. Imagine me with five years more
than twice her age, yet loving her. But
she does not love me, I know it, and it's
best that way. Remember how, when I
first went to school, you told me to divide
my lunch with teacher, and after what a
joke that always was with us. And how
you used to rim my face with both your
hands and kiss me as I went away.
Mother, kiss me like that now. Quick,

THE WINGED WONDER.
By Ray Neal.
It was all the result of a violent dis-
cussion over at Tomlinson's, during the
intermission at eleven o'clock. Jones
held that four miles an hour was an easy
walking gait. Ryan and Gray said it
'UI tell you, said the latter, When
you are doing better than three and a
half, you are hitting her up pretty well,
and you' couldn't keep it up for any
length of time. Don't you remember,
Jim, we timed ourselves last fall when
we walked down to Gordon Park to foot-
Yes, and we went at a pretty good
pace, too, added Ryan. U
That was probably after that East
Tech game when you were down-hearted
and all bruised up after that twenty to
nothing defeat, Jones explained. NUn-
der those circumstances it would un-
doubtedly take you an hour to walk a
No'it wasn't anything of the kind,
we're not like you, and we were not
down-hearted and all bruised up after
that East Tech game, returned Gray.
No, sir, you couldn't walk four hours
that pace to save your neck.
'tI'm betting I could, Jones replied,
I have done it often while out shoot-
I dare say you thought so, have you
ever tried it at a measured stretch?
No, but I can guess at about what
rate I am walking, and four miles an
hour is a good easy swing. I'll bet you
a V that I can walk sixteen miles in four
I'll take that, answered Ryan
So will I if you oifer the same, said
Yes, I'll bet you too, said Jones.
Just then Bill Bailey came in giving
the door a thump as he opened it.
NVhat are you fellows betting on
now? he asked,
Jones thinks that he ca.n walk six-
teen miles in four hours, answered
Ryan, and we each have tive dollars
worth of opinion that he can't. lVhat do
you think about it?
I don 't know, he is a pretty fast man.

ers, you mean, corrected Bill Bailey.
You can take the Lake Shore Boule-
vard to Willoughby, suggested Ryan,
that is a good road and you can't get
lost. It is but twelve miles, but if you
walk it in three hours, we'll call it
Yes, I know that road, I have driven
over it many times in the machine. Out
beyond Euclid Beach, Villa Angela, iVil-
loughbeach, and all those places? All
right, I'll take that road.
Bill Bailey reflected a moment. I
think, he admitted, with a shake of his
head, that it can certainly be 'done by
any .man with strength and sand. but
Jones canlt do it.
I'll tell you what, old scout, de-
clared Jones, indignantly, 'iI'll bet you
ten dollars on the event.
No, I won't go you ten, because I
don't believe in betting so much on a
certainty. Besides you are hard up now,
and you would undoubtedly borrow from
me the money with which you 'd pay your
bet. I can't afford to have you do that,
but I will contribute a five like the rest
to the purse.
It was arranged that Jones should
choose his day, but he was to give them
notice of it on the morning which he

started. Just then the bell rang and
Jones and Gray went to their classes.
When they had gone, Bailey let out a
great ery of joy. He can do it easily, I
know, he said. Nile sha.ll lose our
money, but, by gosh, it will be worth the
price. XVe must get the other fellow to
bet with him so he won't back out. Let 'S
go and get ready for it at once.
XYhat do you 1nean?i' asked Ryan,
what are you going to do?
Can't you guess, Jim, you Irishman?
Come on, I'll tell you, and they went up
Blade Park towards the printer's.
Three or four days after this Jones ap-
peared in his walking breeches and big
Scotch stockings, and announced he was
going to start. He would leave the school
at one o'eloek and arrive in XVilloughby
at four o'clock on that afternoon.
B-yan and Gray said that they might be
at the finish to receive him, if they found
nothing better to do, otherwise he could
time himself. Both of these boys had
jobs at the corner store and had to work
until one-thirty so that they were unable
to see him start. Bailey also had an en-
gagement with the dentist which he
really ought not to break. He would
endeavor to be at the finish, however, to
carry him home. E
Promptly at one Jones left the school
with a swinging stride, and struck up
toward his goal. He was in fine form and
spirits, and had chosen his day well. It
was one of those glorious November days
when a man can do anything, when the
northwest breeze fills your lungs and
swells your chest into a balloon that
seems to lift you clear oif your feet. On
such a day the twelve miles ahead of him
seemed nothing to Jones, and he sprang
along overiiowing with spirits.
The discoveries along the road seemed to
him more beautiful and interesting than
