At the beginning of great automobile
race the mechanician of the Mercury,
Stanton's machine, drops dead. Strange

four hour race Stanton meets a stranger.

The Finish, and After.
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
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

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
"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"
"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
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

you the offer; take or leave it. But
remember, I am likely to break your

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

Floyd, a little later, when that young
mechanician, at least superficially
cleaner and wrapped In a long dust
coat, was leaving the training camp

"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

ulatlon a floriat'a box of fragrant
green leaves lying on a chair. There

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
"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 the other curiously, striving to
analyse his singular attractiveness
and to And the reason why he, Stan
ton, should feel pleasure at the pros

Floyd laughed, his grey eyes mis
"W«ll, I know. We've been working

Suddenly Stanton put hla finger on
the thing he sought, one thing that
made this mechanician different; and
voiced hia thought before considering
"You're a different class, Floyd," be
stated abruptly. "You're no workman,
nor descendant of workmen."
