"Hat up. hat down; that's it, that's

Mr. Flint and Mr. Fosdick, two gen
tlemen with business like cordiality, im
mediately insinuated themselves as to
the party, which was presently aug
mented by a military Kiiglishmaii and a
languid bony youth, who rather osten
tatiously ran through his fingers a roll
i of yellow -backed bills.
I "At last! Nigger down," cried Wat-
I tiville. "Stukey, my boy, we're off."
"Nigger up." said the Englishman
in the back. "Two of the beggars on

' "Nigger down, chauffeur back of the

"Hold up! "
"Wait a minute."
' ' Nigger down it is. "
"And two just getting off the 'bus."
"Four, uigger down; six. nigger up."
Suddenly Stukey found the right con
junction of ideas and hastily snatched
oil' his hat. lie glanced at the clock.
It was (he minutes befoie thiee. The

Meanwhile, the count went on briskl.t.

"Nigger down, a couple of bruisets,
"Ten nigger tips, ten nigger downs."
"I low about an Octoroon?"
" Not black enough."
"Here's a couple more."
The clock rang three and Stukey, re
lieved of all responsibility, burst into a
roar of coughing.
"In fie minutes," he saitl to him

magnanimously: "I'll tell 'em, tell 'em

All at once, in the avenue outside was

Suddenly, above the hum and rattle of

Anil suddenly, struggling to tho front
of the window through the crowd that
had pressed beyond him, Stukey saw the
avenue choked with the ranks of the
