and Tacks sailing over in our direc

Bunch to keep Ikey still I went for

her small brother.
"It was such a delightful day that
Aunt Martha and I couldn't resist the
temptation to do a little shopping." '

lovely: John, hadn't we better take
another table mi that your friendly
conference may not be interrupted?"
I hastened to assure (Mara J. that
it wasn't a conference at all. We had
met Mr. Schwartz quite by accident.
Then I . introduced Ikey to the ladies.
He got up and did something that
was supposed to be a bow, but you
conldn't tell whether he was tleing
his shoe or coming down a step lad

After tuej had ordered club sand--wiches
and coffee I explained to
Clara J. and Aunt Martha that Mr.
Schwartz was a real estate dealer.
"Bunch and I are going in a Utile

"Quit your joshing, John! you'll
embarrass Mr. Schwartz," laughed
liunch somewhat nervously, but Ikey's

"Is Mr. Schwartz deaf and dumb?"
Clara J. whispered.

he cannot sneak a word and can hear

Aunt M.irtha heard me and the
good old soul was all sympathy at
once. She sat next to our bookmaker
friend so she leaned over in an ef
fort to be pleasant, put her mouth
close to the astonished Ikey's ear
and yelled in a shrill treble, "Lovely
day. Mr. Schwartz!"
Poor Ikey looked reproachfully at
the old lady a second, then with gath

the chair and struck the floor with a

this unexpected effort on ?Ir.

much cruelty to animals practised at

to do all lie can to stop it."
I winked at Bunch and immediate
ly he began to cough till I thought the
boy would choke. I would have given
eight dollars for a good excuse to
laugh out loud. Ikey took it all in
without ba'ting an eye.
"I think Uncle Peter is awfully good
and noble to devote his time to such
a worthy cause, don't you, Mr.
Bunch?" inquired Clara J. Bunch
mumbled something incoherent and
took another choke.
"I'm so glad that John has really
made up his mind never to bet an
other penny on horses," Clara J. went

whole lot of money in that mannei
and thee wins it back by accident he

Fortune again, don't you, Mr. Bunch?"
"I certainly do," replied Bunch vig
orously. "Oh. I'm all through." I added. "I
wouldn't bet another dollar on a skate,

around the track in an automobile

Clara J. patted me lovingly on the

Bunch was fixing his throat for an
other choke when suddenly my youth
ful brother-in-law. Tacks, came to the
surlace with a letter in his hand.
Tacks had spotted the" missive ly
ing on the floor near Ikey's chair, so
young Mr. Buttinski had to get busy
and pick It up.
"Here's a letter I found on the
floor," he chirped, and then to show
the profound depths of his learning
the little imp read the address in
slow, deliberate tones, "Mr. I.
Schwartz. Bookmaker, Brighton Beach
Race Track. New York."
Clara J. went into the ice business
right away quick.
Ikey never whimpered.
Then Bunch took the letter from
the open-eyed Tacks and leaped to
the rescue while I came out of the
"It's too bad Mr. Schwartz forgot
his ear trumpet." Bunch said quickly,
and Ikey was wise to the tip in a min
ute. Clara J. sniffed suspiciously and 1
knew she had the gloves on.
".Mr. Schwartz's affliction is terri
ble,' she said with a chill in every
word. "How did you converse with
him before our arrival?"
"Oh! he understands the lip lan
guage and can talk back on his fin
gers." 1 hastened to explain, lookins
hard at Ikey, whose mask-like face
gave no token that he understood
what was going on.
"I thought I understood you to say
' Mr. Schwartz is a real estate dealer!"
Peaches continued, while the ther-
mometer went lower and lower. I
"So he is," I replied, mentally ar
ranging pleasant surprises for Tacks .

"Then why does his correspondent
address Iiim as a Rnnkmnkpr'" mv
wife said slowlv. and I could hear the
icebergs grinding each other all
"I think I can explain that." Bunch
put in quietly. Then, with the utmost
deliberation he looked Ikey in the eye
and said, "Mr. Schwartz, it's really
none of my business, but would you
mind telling me why you, a real es
tate dealer, should have a letter in
your possession which is addressed
to you as a Bookmaker? Answer me
on your Angers."
Ikey delivered the goods.
In a minute he had both paws
working overtime and such a knuckle
twisting no mortal man ever indulged
"He says." Bunch began to inter
pret, "that the letter is not his. It is
intended for Isadore Schwartz, a
wicked cousin of his who follows the
races. Mr. Schwartz is now complain-1
ing bitterly with his fingers because I
his letters and those intended for
his renegade nephew become mixed i
almost every day. These mistakes i
are mado because the initials arc i
identical. He also says that he :
hopes the presence of this
particular letter in his posses i
sion does not offend the la-1
dies because while it is ad-
dressed to a race track gam
bier the contents are quite
harmless being but a small
bill from the dentist."
Ikey's fingers kept on working
nervously as though he felt it his dut
to wear them out, and the perspira
tion rolled off poor Bunch's forehead
"Tell him to cease firing." I said tc
Bunch; "he'll sprain his fingers and
lose his voice."
Ikey doubled up all his eight fingers
and two thumbs in one final shout
"I'm afraid we'll miss the 4:1S train
if we don't hurry," said Peaches, and
I could see that the storm was over,
although she still glanced suspicious
ly at poor Ikey.
"Buy Ikey two more quarts ol
Green Seal and let him wade around
in it." I whispered to Bunch as we
started for the depot.
As we pulled out of the Mayonnaise
Mansion I looked back at Ikey :c
thank him with a farewell nod.
He was half way under the table
holding both hands to his sides, and
making funny faces at the carpet.
Bunch was ahead of us, indulging
in another choke.

Birds Powers of Flight.
It has been calculated that a gliding
bird, at a height of 1.200 yards, at the
moment when it commences to de

setting them at the most favorable
angle touch the ground at a horizon
tal distance of about 15 miles! If the
wind fall, large birds can always,
with a few wing beats, attain an alti
