THE BLUE Is it to be on a cinder track or over an ordinary road? That would be a great difference. Have you any fond hope. asked Jones, that I am going to make a Roman holiday of myself for the benefit of the whole community? I am sure that is what you would like. You would be out there with a brass band. No, my friend, I ask no advantages. I am quite willing to take my chances on any ordi- nary road and in ordinary walking clothes. 123, Extraordinary English knickerboek- 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 square. 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 .vw ..N. .,..- ..,-7-.-.---YW . .. H AND GOLQD 5 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

Please, mother, now. fN'urse looks shyly toward his wife and than pats her hand on his bro-w.j While I was sick I grew to love that 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, mother, quick.

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 wasn't. '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- ball practice? 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 mile. 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- ing. 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 hoursf, I'll take that, answered Ryan promptly. So will I if you oifer the same, said Gray. 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.

M' .-, 6- 6 EAST HIGH SCHOOL ever before. Washington he thought might take command of an army four or five times a da.y in such weather. Jones reached Euclid Beach well ahead of time. To his annoyance he saw the road c1'owded, principally with small boys. Something or other must have happened, he thought. A dog fight, or runaway, or something. If the attrac- tion is still on, I am all right, if not, I shall have to run the gauntlet. He soon found that his latter appre- hension was the true one, and that he was in for just that kind of entertain- ment. A great cheer went up as he ap- proached, and a body of happy children ran forward to meet him. They closed in all around and escorted him along the main road between two lines of shouting people. - Hey, mister, give ussomeli' Go on, you 'll do it, good boy, 'Wigseyf' VVhen 're yer goin' to fork 'em out?,' Rats, dat ain't him, dat fancy guy is one o' dem high school guys. Will yer look at de jay? Get on to de legs. VVhat's he got 'em wrapped up in, shawls? Naw, carpets. Say, mis- ter, yer pants is got caught inside your socks. I guess dem is English, yer know. Ain't yer going to give us no gum? A-ah, let 'm alone, he ain't nothin' but one o' them stoodent jays. He ain 't no winged wonder, a-ah! The above was what Jones enjoyed as he passed Euclid Beach. He finally shook oif his pursuers, and breathed freely again for about five minutes as he sat down to rest. VVhile he sat there a ma- chine pulled up in front of him. He knew the man who was at the wheel and called to him, Hullo, Jones, came the recog- nition, what are you doing out here? Off on a tramp, a glorious day for exercise, isn't it? 'iYes, you have no idea how I enjoy this ride. 'Well, good-by, I have got to hurry along, I am walking against time. Jones strode on from bad to worse, for he was now about to pass Villa Angela. the girls' seminary. Here there was a large group of the students of the institu- tion by the roadside. Jones had never before been afflicted with bashfulness, and did not acknowledge that he was troubled in that way now, but he felt peculiarly alone, and would have given much for another, man or just a few less girls. By the terms of his bet he could not run any of the way, but a giggle al- most made him throw up the stakes and break the pace. By a great effort, how- ever, he braced up, and even smiled cheer- fully. He made an inward resolution never to look at a girl again. He strode on again through Euclid Village. Nottingham, XVilloughbeach and others, and to his horror he found in each town the same gathering, and went through the same ordeal that he had re- ceived before. Had he gone to work and picked out a public holiday? No, he was sure it was not that, and the fact that it was Saturday. and the schools had there- fore turned their swarms loose to the world, would not account for all the crowd in every village. Perhaps there was an extra election going on in that country. What puzzled him most, how- ever. was that all of the children expect- ed something of him besides mere amuse- ment, and a pitiable example of dress. Vlihen more than half way, he stopped to speak with a farmer leaning over the fence by the roadf The old farmer looked at Jones with wonder and interest, but did not think it necessary, as had the good citizens of the factory towns. to heap scorn and derision on de boob.
