that Incle Peter was losing at the
race track, giviifc it had: to him later

;o having him ait for us as hook
maker, and we soon located him in
Tiont of the Metropole In order to
dazzle him. Hunch led the way to
"leave everything to me." Bunch
whiskered, as we shaved our hats and
put our feet under a tahle.
"What kind or gasolene do you
want to put in your hoiler room?" I
inquired, as the waiter drew near.
"A quart of Green Seal Sec." Hunch
ordered. "That's the only fuel for

He was short and thin, hut it was a
deceptive thinness. His capacity for
storing away free liquids was awe
inspiring and a sin.
I think Ikey must have been hollow
from the neck to the ankles, with
emergenry hulkheads in iioth feet.
It scon developed that Ikey had
been up ag.iinst a losing streak, and ,
he was about ready to quit till his
hoodoo went off duty, but if we were
willing to pay tor the chalk he'd keep

"How much will it set us hack for.

Ikey dove into the wine-glass and
came up ag.tin for a long breath.
"Only a few hundred." Hunch broke
in. "Tint's merely, a detail. John.

"we'll deduct all expenses befoie

"!:; dis old geezer upholstered wit

"Who. I'ncle Peter?" 1 answered.
"Say. he has nearly all there is in the

is a helper and 1 ain't a bit busy."
"John has his jos-h rags on; don't

keeps on throwing his coin at the

and arrange our plan of campaign.
Here's to oar scheme, and drink
Ikey went overboard for a final
swim In the Green Seal, when sud
denly Bunch tapped me on the arm
"Look!" he said, and the nev Ju
stant 1 b-held Clara J.. Aunt Martha
and Tacks sailing over in our direc
tion. With a whispered admonition to
Bunch to keep Ikey still I went for
ward to meet my wife, her aunt and
her small brother.
"It was s-icli a delightful day that
nnt Martha and I couldn't resist the
temptation to do a little shopping." '
Clara J. rat Med on; "and then we de- j
ddod to come here for a bit of lunch- i
eon why. Mr Bunch: I'm so ghul to i
see you: I understood John to say you j
were in South America! Really: How '
lovely: John, hadn't we be tor take
another table so that your friendly i
ccaierence may not be interrupted?"
I hastened to assure OJara 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 i
was supposed to be a bow, but you
couldn't tell whether he was tleing
his shoe or coming down a step lad
der. When lkey tried to bend a society
double he looked like one of the pic
tures that poes with a rubber exer
ciser, price 75 cents.
After they 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 little
deal with Mr. Schwartz." I explained.
"He knows the real estate business
backwards. Mr. Schwartz has a fad
for collecting apartment houses. He
owns the largest assortment of people
coops in the city. All the modern
improvements, too. Hot and cold
windows, running gas and noiseless
janitors. .Mr. Schwartz is the inven
tor of the idea of having two baths in
c-ery apartment so that the lessee
will have less excuse for not being
Ikey never cracked a smile.
"In Mr. Schwartz's apartment
houses." I continued, while Hunch
kicked my shins under the table; "you
a ill llnd self-freezing refrigerators
and s'df-Ieaving servants. All the
rooms are light rooms, when you
light the gas. Two of his houses
overlook the pnrk and all of them
overlook the building laws. The floors
are made of concrete so that if you
want to bring a horse In the parlor
jou can do so without kicking off the
plaster in the flat below. Every room
has folding doors, and when the wa
ter pipes burst the janitor has folding
"Quit your joshing, John: you'll
i embarrass Mr. Schwartz," laughed
Hunch somewhat nervously, but Ikey's
grin never flickered.
"Is Mr. Schwartz deaf and dumb?"
Clara J. whispered.
"Intermittent! so," I whispered
baek; "sometimes for hours at a time

tie cannot sneak a word and can hear
only the loudest tones."
Aunt Martha heard me and tho
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 lkey looked reproachfully at
the old lady a second, then with gath
ering astonishment he slid silently off
the chair and struck the floor with a
Aunt Martha was so rattled over
this unexpected effort on Mr.
Schwartz's part that she upset her
coffee and lkey got most of it in the
back of the neck.
When peace was finally restored
Punch inquired about Uncle Peter's
"Never better." answered Aunt
Martha. "During the lasfew months
he has gone about more than he used
to. Almost every day he is at the
race track in the interest of the so
ciety he is a member of."
"What society is that?" Bunch in
quired. "The S. P. C. A.." replied the old

lady 'Peter tells ir.e that there is
p'.uch cruelty to animals practised at
the race track so he has determined
to do all he 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 nob'e 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
en. "I think when a man has lost a
whole lot of money in that manner
and then wins it back by accident he
ehould be satisfied and not tempt
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,
not if they promised to hurry it
around the track in an automobile
not for mine!"
Clara J. patted me lovingly on the
back and Aunt Martha beamed ovei
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 bis 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.
lkey never whimpered.
Then Bunch look the letter from
the open-eyed Tacks and leaped to
tLe rescue while I came out of tho
"It's too bad Mr. Schwartz forgot
his car 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 hack on his fin
gers." 1 hastened to explain, looking
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!"
Beheld Clara J, Aunt Martha
Peaches continued, while the ther
mometer went lower and lower.
"So he is." I replied, mentally an j
ranging pleasant surprises for Tacks .
in the near future. I
"Then why docs his correspondent j
address him as a Bookmaker?" my
wife said slowly, and I could hear the !
icebergs grinding each other all j
around me. I
"1 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, hut would you
mind tolling 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 fingers."
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 is1
intended for Isadore Schwartz, a I
wicked cousin of his who follows the !
races. Mr. Schwartz is now complain- i
ing bitterly with his fingers because j
his letters and those Intended for I
his renegade nephew become mixed i
almost every day. These mistakes I
are made 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 i
dies because while it is ad ;
drssed to a race track gam !
bier the contents are quite
harmless being but a small j
bill from the dentist." '
Ikey's fingers kept on working i
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: IS train
if we don't hurry," said Peaches, and
1 could see that the storm was over,
ilthough she still glanced suspicious J
ly at poor Ikey
"Buy lkey 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 lkey jo
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
scen with motionless wings, can by
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
tude where they will find a wind
which will permit them to continue
their journey "on the glide."
