CULLEN (Copyrirlu.j When Spud McGlone, the tout, nudged Into New York from the win ter race meeting at New Orjenu, he wore a certain sooty and tindery ap pearance ihat didn't seem to denote a ride on the varnished cars. "Does a job nt the gasworks, .back In this dump, look good to me?" he ohserwi gloomily, replying to nobody's question. "Docs it ? Ask Smudge Shaugnessy if he ever hud it yen for a beef stew! "Southern race tracks, eh? Say, I'd rather be a moldy ear in a Ooiiey Is land hot-Corn holler than a red burn full of feed and bay down tluwe in the cockroach Dixie belt, and let that go with the main bet. "There's no getting away from the ring Pinks down there. "The first day out down there I slanted a thing that looked like bean-porridge-liot to me. I took him by the left fin as be mooned around the ring marking a program and trying to look wise. '"Sh-sh" says I as I tried to lead him u,nder one' of the stairways. 'Sh-sh ! I woul fain uncurl one gold en word or two unto you.' "'Hey? What's that?' he bawled like fishieddler yelling shad on a side street and trying to shake off the clutch I bad on him. " 'Not so volcy, major,' said I, bang ing on to him. "'Hey, luok-a-here, what's all this?' he shouted, net with any effort, get me, but just talking in his natural voice. 'What d'ye want?' " 'Sh-sh ! Try whispering, general,' says I to him, lamping around to see If any of the ring Pinks were on the job. 'All that I desire to do is AS send yjm away from here lopsided with cur rency. "For about lm ! g. u minute he studied me witli that harvest-moon wjek. "'What do yon want to do that for?' he shouted. 'What Is it. to you whether I win or not ?' v , " 'The soft pedal nnd low bridge, please, judge,' 1 begged the smudge. "'Is it a horse?' Ire yelled at me. "'That loud stuff is great in a knock about turn, but here it's liable to crab a perfectly good sketch. Now, will you gamble that hundred on one that's a Rocky Kurd wrapped in tissue-paper and tinfoil and served in a Tlffanv dish?' " 'Is It some horse that's going to run in this first race that you want me to play?' he howled. " 'Say, general, won't you try to im agine that you're at a wijke, and pull the muffling snares down on that drum of yours?" " 'Yes, it's one in the first race. "'It's 15 to 1 now, and It'll streel home like a cat that's been chucked Into a creek with a, stone around its neck.' '"Well, the mark yelped then like a barker with a double-horn megaphone on a rubberneck wagon: 'Hmv do you know ihat this horse will win, hey?' "Just then the ring Pink that I'd nlped the minute before breezed up behind me wiiii tin, stiff forefinger for the middle of III' kidneys. " 'None ' that buzz stnlT here.

" IGuvV says I, as he got to the hot torn of the steps, "d'ye know the name of it'' " 'The name of what ?' he asked me in the tone of the skipper of a canal boat hollering at a mule-whacker a hundred yards up the towpath. 'Did you ask me what time. It was? Why, it's half past tliree ' pulling out a soup er the size of a bund-painted porcelain plaque. "T haven't got an idea in the world what horse ywtt mean and. of course, you're a stranger to me' lie was hol lering louder and louder with every chirp 'but I lost fifty dollafti on the first race' by this time lie was orut ing like the ringmaster of a circus "and if there's any chance to get that money back, why, of course, I'd like to obtain the name of the winner, " 'You look as if you might know, even if, as I say, you are a .stranger to me; and of course if the one you named really did win Td be willing to er do the right thing toward you for your kindness, and ' "Did I have that one liwked?

A' Double Love Story By MOLL! E MATHER. (Copyrlchl.) It had taken Tessie a long time to save (weiii;, live dollars, and the sum seemed more than twice this amount to, her. Twenty-five dollars, Tessie thought, should be enough to buy the finest coat, and she was in need of a coat. Indeed, the ihln little suit which had been her last year's pur chase was all Insufficient against win try winds, and neither Indoors nor out did poor Tessie know the luxury of warmth. So the girl was now alone In the world, alone that is, except for Fred erick. Frederick hoped to marry her when his salary should be raised, and it was especially because of Freder ick that Tessie longed for the tan coat with the fur collar. Frederick ad mired this coat lit the store window, when he and Tessie lingered on their walks. Frederick would buy her a coat like that some day, he said, and she would "look like a princess" in it. Tessie wished to look like a princess now. that he;' lover might he proud of her; so painstakingly and self-sacri-ficingly she saved the twenty-five dol lars. There was no price tag on the cloak in the window, and Tessie knew many discouraging fears, but on the night of the biting snow storm she turned resolutely Into the store; she must have some kind of coat at once, even if her hope was to be destroyed. The desired coaf had become to her almost an obsession, she gloried in dreams of its 'lining. And when the ator In her upper bedroom re mained as cold as her own hands. Tes sie would draw the old woolen shawl about her shoulders and think of that warm fur collar. She felt strangely abashed as she entered the carpeted clonk department in the presence of the stately modish, young woman who seemed almost pityingly to await her demands. Tessie's faded little suit glared out its ghabblnesa. in nil that grandeur of newness, Courageously, she approached one of the attendant young women. "I would like." she said frankly, "to see a tan cloak with a fur collar, I can only pay twenty five dollars." ' The young woman continued her work of assorting cloaks. "Wis have nothing like that for $25.00." she answered brusquely, "Hut there was a coat In the win dow " Tessie began, she could not so easily dispose of her hope. With a shake of her head, the young woman moved on to a more promising cus tomer. Then, as Tessie stood hesitat ing and dejected, a second young wom an came around the display table. The dress she wore was black :nd simply madtt, her soft, brown hair waved naturally over her ears, she had the same calmly superior manner of the others, which had inspired Tessie with uncomfortable awe. Hut the face of this young woman who accosted her With a pleasant question, was pale nnd tired. Tessie thought, and her dark eyes showed sympathetic inter est. Quickly Tessie responded to that Interest. "Perhaps," she suggested, "you might be able to find a warm tan coat for me. with a fur collar like fhe one in Ihe window. I can only pay twenty-five dollars. You see, I have saved that much." "Btri twenty-five dollars is a good deal for n coat, isn't it ?" "Sometimes," the pale faced young woman answered gently, "twenty-five dollars is a good deal. If you will sit down for a few moments' I will see about the coaf In the window." . The sparkles came back again to Tessie's eyes. I lie kindly voice was so reassuring. And presently the young woman returned with a man bearing the coveted cloak on his arm, nnd when the man found that the clonk fitted perfectly Tessie's slight figure, he carried It away only "long enough to fold It in n square box, and the purchase was made for twenty-five dollars. As Tessie was lovingly bear ing her burden toward the elevator she -turned with a sudden impulse back to the young woman of the sym pathetic eyes. "Im so grateful to yon," Tessie said, "for taking the trouble." The tiredness of the young woman's face seemed to vanish in her smile. "It has been a pleasure' to be able to do It for yon," she said. Then as Tessie went happily on her way to "look like a princess" for Frederick, the young Voman slipped back into a dressing room strewn with fur" trimmed dresses, and here she regained the hat. which she had left there when she tried the flresses on, and when she emerged again out Into the cloak room, a big man gravely faced her. "And so, Marlon," he said, "this Is really you whom I meet for the first time tonight. As you cume to the as sistance of that shabby little creature t snt waiting for you Just behind the mirror. I had called at your home and they said I should find you here. So I heard all that passed, and realized that you were playing the part of a clerk Just long enough to give to that little girl her heart's desire. Dearest, yon must know that I have long wanted to nsk a question, but yob seemed so satisfied In your life of good fortune, that I wondered if love might find a place. Today you have shown me a heart tender In lfs love for oth ers." The young' worian laughed ns she slipped her hand through the big man's arui.
