The Mercury uttered a vibrant roar that cleared the Parkway for a quarter of a mile ahead, and leaped. Floyd kept his eyes upon*,the road in front, carefully avoiding view of the hubbub left In their wake. He bad a fleeting glimpse of one scandalized offi cer struggling with his rearing horse, is they thundered past, and be enter tained no doubt of the number in their rear. "She steers a little stiff," Stanton ob served, twisting between a limousine and two carriages. "Rut we can fix that at the track. What?" "Two motor cycle policemen are Just behind," communicated Floyd, devour ed by silent mirth. "Had enough?" "I haven't seen them yet I cant let out the machine here, of course, but — was that a dog?" * ( "Poodle." "Hut It seems all right." Around a curve ahead darted a blue uniformed figure on a motor cycle, one arm raised. Stanton Instantly checked bis car, Floyd throwing out his hand In warning to those behind. There was a mad series of explosions from tbs abruptly halted motor-cycles in pursuit. "You're under arrest!" shouted three voices at once, as the Mercury slid to a standstill. "Is It possible?" Inquired the driver, removing his goggles. Two more motor-cycle officers were coming up, three mounted on horaea were arriving from side-paths. Sur rounded by the outraged eight and all the population in the neighborhood, the Mercury stood quiescent. "Will you follow to the police sta tion, or will we have to take you?" came the crisp question. "We've got your number." "I'll follow wherever you like," en gaged Stanton. "Lead the way." ' They started, preceded by one officer and followed by another, also by a shabby young man on a bicycle. Into the station they went, accompanied by their three attendants. was three fold: exceed ing the Speed limit by some fifty mllea an hour, resisting arrest, and violating the smoke ordinance. That set forth, the usual Interrogatory was put, Stan ton replying with concise brevity. "Name and age?" "Ralph Stanton, twenty-six." "Occupation ?" "Automobile driver." "Name of car?" "Mercury." "Owner?" "The Mercury Company." The shabby young man interrupted proceedings by a stifled gasp, grasping the sleeve of Floyd, who stood looking on. "That's Stanton? Stanton? Aud you —who are you?" "Jes Floyd, his mechanician," was the response. ' Stanton glanced that way, RS Floyd was drawn to the other side of the room by his excited captor, but turned back to answer the remainder of the examination. When the ceremony was ended, he signaled to his mechani cian. "Come; I've got to go before the magistrate and give ball," he summoned Impatiently. Floyd ckme across to him, shining eyed and esger. "Stanton, that Is a reporter; be wanta ua to tell him about your doing this. He needa a fresh story to make good with bis paper—can't we give it to him?" Stanton surveyed his companion, eyebrows lifted. "Why should we? The newspapers will get It, whatever we do. Come." "But be needs It; It would help him," Floyd urged. "He, he's thin and frayed out —Stanton, he looks hungry." "Do you want to help him?" the driver queried, astonished. "Do you care about a man you do not know and never see again?" "Don't you?" aaked Floyd simply. Tm not from Paradise," dryly an swered Stanton. "Tell him anything you lite, but be quick." He looked at the reporter again, with a new use of bla eyes. Floyd ra right; the man was threadbare and gaunt, and pathetically young. Stanton had a rebuked consciousness of being etrong and brutal In bla strength, successful and selfish In his success. "You are an educating companion," be observed, as they went out with an officer. "Why?" Floyd Inquired, pussled. But Btantoo would elucidate no further. The ordeal before the magistrate was not long. Stanton was held In a thou sand dollars ball for future trial, pro duced a surety company's bond, and In fifteen minutes was free and once more In his seat behind the Mercury's wheel. "We will resch the office on time," commented the lawbreaker. "You do It like a veteran," Floyd mused with mock suspicion. At the office they left the car, but not each other. There was growing upon Stanton more and more the de sire for Jesse Floyd's companionship, a final rebellion of nature against his lonely existence. "Do you have to stay here?" he de manded. upon concluding arrange ments at the office. "No," Floyd replied. "Come to dinner with me, then." The mechanician shoo£ his. bronze curled bead in laughing refusal. "There has been enough of that, Mr. Stanton; you come to dinner with me." "At your home?" escaped Stanton involuntarily. He had a sudden vision of Jes and Jessica together, a pre monition of mental bewilderment be fore the spectacle of their incredible likeness. "I would like that, but you know we live up town, and I have got to be back here in an hour. Mr. Oreen wants me." "Oh, anywhere you say. See here, why can't you wait and come on the train with me to Indianapolis? We might make the trip less monotonous for each other." Taken by surprise, Floyd hesitated. "I —you are good to think of it— but Mr. Green would never consent He has arranged for me to go on to night." "Why shouldn't he consent? You would be there in plenty of time." Floyd turned bis mischievous gray eyes to the other man's, guarding si lence. But Stanton halted in the mid dle of the sidewalk, his face locking In his steel-hard anger and determina tion. "I know what you mean, Floyd. And, speak openly, do you believe that you would be unable to stand forty-eight houre of me without leaving the com pany?" "No." "Nor "No. I am very certain that I could stand much more of you than I am ever likely to get, Ralph Stanton. We are blocking traffic here, aren't we?" For one passing moment he had looked Jessica herself; Stanton saw again the girl's sorrowful face as she bent over the embroidery, and heard her answer "often" to his question of her loneliness. They were not alto gether sufficient for each other, then, these twins? They might possibly ad The Mercury Uttered a Vibrant Roar and Leaped. Mit a third? Stanton caught his breath; a slow strong pulse of vague excitement began to beat In him, and thereafter was never still. J until a day when allele world craahed Into blank stillness. They went on to the quiet French restaurant that Floyd had chosen; so recovering tone on the way that they contrived to disagree over the merits of rival speedometers and argued en ergetically all through the dinner. They spent a long time over the sim ple meal, enjoying themselves com pletely. But at last they sank Into a thoughtful silence, -which Stanton was the first to break. "I saw that Miss Floyd's arm was hurt, the other evening. I hope It is better." Floyd raised his head, starting ao violently as to overturn the goblet of water beside him. "What do you mean?" he exclaimed sharply. "What do you rnnoT Her arm T Tha-shattering of glass and the con sequent flood brought their waiter oa a run, but Floyd did not even gianoe down at the wreck, his eyM upon Stanton; who returned the gaa* in ut ter amaaement. "What do I mean? I say that your sister's bracelet slipped off and scratched her arm, the night wo went to the play, and I asked you If the were well. What U the matter with your* Floyd pushed back his chair to per mit the waiter's ministrations, hie luhee falling. "You gave me a turn," be exclaimed, with hurried llghtneM. "I wondered if Jessica had hurt heraelf and not told me. We've only got each other, and we are twins —I suppoM we are silly about each other, In fact I re member, now, that she did have a scratch on ber arm; I blamed it on the kitten." He was still pale, and paid the check without looking at his compan ion. "Your nerves are out," Stanton frankly commented, contemplating him with curiosity. "One would think it was you who were Just over the ar rest. You'll have to get In form be fore we strike a raoe-track." "Don't you worry," besought Floyd, his gaiety and color rushing back to gether. "I'll take some smelling-salts with me (n case I feel faint when you commence to speed up." Outside the two paused, Floyd look ing at his watch. "I've got to go over to the office," he said. "Shall I see you again be fore we leave?" "When is that?" "Nine o'clock from the Grand Cen tral. We always start a few days ahead of you, of course." "Better shake hands, then," advised Stanton. They did so, and separated. At five minutes past nine, that even ing, the Chicago special pulled out of New York. Ten minutes later a band was laid on Floyd's shoulder, as he sat gazing out the window at Ing darkness and brightness that was the outskirts of the city. ) "Do you want to talk, or shall I go back to my own section in the next car?" Stanton inquired. His mechanician turned swiftly, in credulously. "Stanton? Really you?" "Since you had to start to-night, I saw no reason why I should not do likewise. I hate train travel; we'll get it over. You haven't answered my question yet." "I didn't know that I hod to," smil ed Floyd. And Indeed there had been no pos sible mistaking of the welcome and pleasure in his cry, or in bis truthful face. Stanton took the seat opposite and pulled a folded newspaper from his pccket, passing it across. "I suppose you have seen that," he Inferred. v "Race gossip?" questioned the other, taking the paper. "Court news," was the correction. (TO BK CONTINtIKD.) London Plays a New Game. There is a new game which sports men are playing.

Atlanta, Oa.—ln the effort to en courage Southern farmers to raise more hogs, the Southern Railway, through Its Live Stock Department has issued a booklet entitled, "Hog Production and Conditions (or Success In the South." a copy of which will be furnished on request by F. L. Word, Lire Stock Agent, Atlanta, Qa. The booklet contains much practi cal and valuable information as to the care and feeding of hogs, selection of breeds, treatment of diseues, and cutting and curing meat. Chapters on each subject have been supplied by experts. That the South consumes more pork and raises less than any other part of the United States despite the fact that pork can be produced more cheaply In the South than in the North or West, Is a well known fact and a condtllon that greatly impedes the progress of the section. The long open season and the great variety ftf food crops at his command give the Southern farmer the opportunity to make more money raising hogs than is possible in any other territory. The Live Stock Department of the Southern Railway devotes iU efforts entirely to stimulating interest in live stock raising in the territory along the Southern Railway and the services of its experts are available without charge of any kind to any farmer or other person Interested in live stock.
