Resinol is a doctor's prescription which proved so success ful for eczema, ringworm and other Itching, burning, unsightly skin erup tions, that it has been ueed by other physicians all over the country for eighteen years. No other treatment for the skin now before the public can show such a record of professional ap proval. In a single month, two hundred and twenty-one doctors wrote us indorsing the Resinol preparations. They would not have done so If they had not found them highly valuable in their own prac tice. They prescribe Resinol freely, confident that Its soothing, healing ac tion is brought about by agents so bland and gentle as to be suited to the most delicate akin —even of a tiny baby. The nearest druggist sells Resinol Ointment (50c and $1.00) and Reainol Soap (25c) or you can try them free by writing to Dept. 13-K, Resinol, Bal timore, Md., for liberal sample of each. Its Origin.

Morning arched Its golden hours across the still speeding cars, and melted slowly Into noon. The weary drivers had settled to steady endur ance gaits, saving their energy and their machines for the more spectac ular work of afternoon and evening. At nine o'clock that night the race would end. The Mercury car had registered ninety miles more than the Duplex, both of them being many tens of miles In advance of the other competitors. At six In the morning Stanton had gone in for a brief rest. At eight he was back, and kept the wheel until ono In the afternoon. Victory was In hlc hands If nothing happened to his car; an hour pjid a half lost in re pairs would transfer all his advantage to the Dupletf. He was jealously afraid to lntrulit his machine to his assistant drlv4r, and consequently merciless to hid mechanician and him self. But Flo)*l made no complaint. At half-past >ne, all the cars wers sent to their ;amps while an hour was spent in laving the track hur riedly mended by gangs of workmen. The road-bed Wi places was furrowed like a plowed field by the flying wheels. Meanwhile the afternoon crowds flowed In, filling the stands to suffocation, missing on the prome nade, banking In a solid row of pri vate automobiles behind the screen. When at half-past two the racers were recalled to start anew, Stanton sharply scrutinised his mechanician bofore leaving the camp. "I'm going to keep this car until the end of the nice," he announced, not unkindly. "If you don't think you can stand seven hours of It, say so; and I'll have them find some one to re lieve you. They can rush Rupert here from up the Hudson by four or five o'clock. If you get In for It, you'll finish, if I have to tie you In your seat. I'm driving to win." The scarlet of resentment flushed through Floyd's grime-streaked pallor. "You won't have to tie me," he promised, white teeth catching his Hp. "11l not flinch. Go on," Stanton actually laughed, bending to his levers. "I didn't mean to tie you to keep you from runnfng away, but to keep you from fainting and falling out," he explained. "But —" The car bounded forward. The track hnd been filled In with wet mud from the Infield —on the first circuit the heavy Lozelle car skidded and went through the fence at the north turn. After that, nothing could have Induced Stanton to allow his machine in oth&r hands. Hour after hour passed. The noisy music of the band crashed out mon otonously; the crowd swayed, mur muring. applauding, exclaiming, argns eyed and kaleidoscopic In color and motion. At sunset, when the Mercury made a trip into camp for supplies, neither of its men left their seats. The beam ing Mr. Green came to shower con gratulations upon Stanton, and with him the head »f the Mercury Com pany, himself it former driver whose quiet appreciation had an expert's value. Stanton was leaning across the wheel, chatting with them, when his employer brok«J the thread of speech. "What is tie matter with your mechanician, Sianton?" he queried. Stanton turntl. suddenly conscious of a light welgl t against his shoulder. With his movement, Floyd also start ed erect, their glances crossing. "Nothing," .the driver briefly an swered to the other's question. "Tired, perhaps; he has been working. As you were saying—" But the glimpsed picture stayed with Stanton; the fatigued young face against his srtn, the drowsy, heavy lidded syes flashing keenly awake, the involuntary expression qf angry shame at ;&• moment's weakness. And he would sooner have tied Floyd In his seat, after that, than have added the fine Insult of offering to relieve htm. "Ready," so in i one called; the work men scattered In every direction, and' the Mercury wis off onoe more. "Car oomin'," Warned the mechani cian, as they a lot from the paddock entramoe on ti the track. "Duplex ahead." Floyd waa hlitaelf again, watchfully MIMMHke, aoichalaatly fearless. Color and glow fkdcd from the iky; once more tb« March-light* flared oat around the track and transformed it to a stiver ribbon, running between walla of ebony darkness exoept where the lamp-gemmed stands arose. Al ready newspapers were being cried announcing Stanton's coming victory. Driving evenly, steadily, refusing all challenges to y speed duels and at tempting none of his deadly tactics of the night before, Stanton piloted his car to the inevitable result. At nine o'clock the flag dropped, and amid a hubbub of enthusiasm the Mercury crossed the line, winner. Later, when the triumphant tumult In the Mercury camp had somewhat subsided, Stanton walked over to where Floyd was leaning against a column of unused tires. "You've had twenty-four hours of me," he said abruptly. "How did It strike yout" Floyd raised his candid gray eyes to the other's fsce, and In spite of ex haustion smiled with a glinting frank ness and humor. "If you want me to tell you—" he began. "I have asked you." "It struck me rather hard. But— I'd like you to like me as well as I do you." "I need a mechanician to race with me for the rest of the season," Stan ton gave brief Information. "Do you want the position T" Floyd straightened; even In the un certain light the color could be seen to rise over his face. "You'd take me; youT" "Yes." "You know—oh, I can tune up a motor, I understand my work, but for road racing—you know I can't crank your car or change a tire without help." Stanton smiled grimly. "I guess 1 am big enough to crank my own car," he quoted at him. "You have your nerve, I can't have a whin ing quitter to drive with me. I make you the offer; take or leave it. But remember, I am likely to break your neck." "I'll chance that," anawered Floyd, drawing a quick breath, and held out his slender hand. "I'll come." The pact was made. In after time, Stanton came to wonder at Its bald simplicity. The assistant manager overtook Floyd, a little later, when that young mechanician, at least superficially cleaner and wrapped In a long dust coat, was leaving the training camp "See here, Floyd; you are going to race with Stanton right along, he aays." "Yes, air." Mr. Green agitated his foreboding bead. "You won't get along With him," he Stanton Was Leaning Across the Wheel Chatting With Them. asserted darkly. "No on« doe*. He, he la—you'll tee. But you won't leave ua on the edge of a race, will you? We are entered at Massachu setts, for week after next; youll turn up on time, no matter what be doea In between T" "Surely, air. I would not leave any one without notice, of courae." "Plenty of notice, Floyd. For you can't atand Stanton." Stanton at tbat moment waa In hta tent, contemplating with cynical apec ulatlon a floriat'a box of fragrant green leaves lying on a chair. There waa no card with theae, but they were apraya of laurel. In fancy he aaiw the meaaage that bad accompanied the orchida, the delicately engraved let ters : Valerie Albert on Carlisle. Did abe take him for a matinee Idol, be acofled; or, what did abe want? Some thing, "abe wanted something of him. What? Only amuaement. probably. He had not grown to manhood -la New York city without learning that men and women In * certain set alleged their extreme wealth as a license, which freed then, from the restraint «♦— Jt: r iBi&V tif "T "- "- 1 of small conventionalities, and arro ganfly took such diversion as the. mo ment offered. And should be play the game to which she invited him, or decline it? Was it worth wbii«? He was weary to exhaustion, but still he remained gazing at the box of laurel. "You can't stand Stanton," Mr. Green was warning Floyd, byway of farewell. And the mechanician was laughing. CHAPTER IV. Ths Road to Massachusetts. Stanton and Floyd did not meet again for a fortnight. Their ways of life did not run parallel except when a race was due or taking plaoe. The Mercury car bad gone back to the factory for a thorough overhauling, after the twenty-four-hour grind, and it would have as soon occurred to Stanton to seek out his machine as his mechanician. Some drivers grow sentimentally attached to their cars, watching them fondly and jealously; he did not, consistently and tempera mentally practical In outlook on the minor facta of life. It was la the railroad depot, the morning he started for Maaßachusetts, that Stanton saw his mechanician for the first time since the Beach victory. Floyd waa seated on one of the wait ing-room benches, reading a magazine; in his gray suit and long overcoat, his head with lta clustering bronze curls bent over his book, he looked like a particularly delicate and pretty boy of eighteen, perhaps even a trifle ef feminate. Remembering that cry from the midst of the perilous strug gle with the Duplex: "Cut him closer; he's weakening! Cut him close!" Stanton's lip curved In amused appre ciation as he crossed to the absorbed reader. "Good morning," be remarked. Floyd glanced up, then rose with an exclamation and held out hlB hand, hla ready color rising like a girl's un der his fine, clear skin. "Good morning; I didn't see you coming," he responded. "No, you were reading. You are go ing—" "To Lowell. The car Is aboard, you know." "I did not know," corrected Stan ton with indifference. He waa study ing the other curiously, striving to analyse his singular attractiveness and to And the reason why he, Stan ton, should feel pleasure at the pros pect of having this companion at bis side; he, who had never formed friend ships as most men did. Floyd laughed, his grey eyes mis chievous. "W«ll, I know. We've been working all the week at the machine, and we've got her ticking like a watch. You doot bother about that—l suppose rou don't have to, It's tip to us. But If you will take her out on the track to morrow, I'll tune her up to the last notch." Suddenly Stanton put hla finger on the thing he sought, one thing that made this mechanician different; and voiced hia thought before considering wisdom. "You're a different class, Floyd," be stated abruptly. "You're no workman, nor descendant of workmen." Floyd atared, startled at the brusk irrelevanoe, then melted Into a straight, direct smile as be met tbe keen gase. (TO BB CONTINUED.) Leaning Tower's Secret.
