npiIK long bill glistened In the win-
ter moonlight like a frosted cake.
The road that rnn down It like a
silvered ribbon, reaching across the
railroad track ntnl on through the val
ley, lost Itself In n shimmering haze
of snowy whiteness. The wind, as If
afraid of awakening the sleeping
town, had hushed Itself Into stillness,
waiting along the way and under thu
shadows of tho quiet trees for the sig
nal of dawn. The scone was an Invita
tion to a sport now largely displaced
by rushing motor cars, but then one of
the chief delights of the Christinas
season. The bobsled of those days
and nights was the pride of owners
nnd the prize winner of competitions.
The annals of the Slater Hill race
course registered triumphs as real und
momentous as those of any race track.
The moon had watched with an ex
pectant io until ten of the clock and
was about to retire under a passing
cloud I iv disappointment, when the
clamor and shouting of an approach
ing crowd renewed Its spirit. From a
side street they came, merry lads and
lasses, with those of Inter years who
had not forgotten how to be young.
Soon the head of the hill was crowded
with competitors and the air rang
with the hustling preparations for the

enough to distance the wind, ami, un
controlled by hit and bridle, they could
not be stopped before reaching the
foot of the Incline. There was thus
enough of adventure In their trips M

This year there was a special reason
for the gathering, for Tom Atkins,

boasting that the title was a just one
and arousing all the determination
that the others hud to prove liim
wrong. The "Dart," the "Bacer," the
"Dauntless," the "Peerless," und
others as glorious were eager to lieat
the untried ami vaunting newcomer.
The tlr.st race was Inconclusive, fur
Atkins got a false start and tipped his
load over into a snow bank. The sec
ond and the third races gave the lau
rels to the "Dart" and the "Peerless,"
respect holy, and left Atkins' heart In
ids hoots; hut the fourth attempt end
ed with "The King of the III il" a rod
ahead and with its owner's chin pro
tuberant ami uplifted. Then tlmu went'
by with arylng fortunes until the

was agreed that the winner of this
llnal should he crowned the khu; of

Amid the hiihhub of these Inst ar
raiigeiueuts no one had heard the dis
tant whistle of "Thu Fljer," as the
night expioss for Boston was called,
and the competing sleds dashed away
down the long descent without a
thought of diuiKcr, nor, until half way
down, did any danger appear, but then

The other sleds, somewhat In the
rear, were steered Into thu roadside

"The King of the Hill" kept on, In
seeming Ignorance of the Imminent
collision. Not until the warning blasts
of the engine whistle seemed to
startle him Into action dlil Atkins
move to sure himself and his load.
Then, with, a wrench of his steering
gear and u sturdy leg-sweep, 1)6
brought his sled about, throwing it
over upon Its -side and upon its fright
ened load as the train swept by, al
most brushing theut on Its way.
