across tha still speeding cars, and

drivers had settled to steady endur-

their machines for the more spectac

At nine o'clock that night the race
The Mercury car had registered
■tnety miles more than the Duplex,
both of them being many tens of miles
la advance of the other competitors.
At six In the morning Stanton had

was back, and kept the wheel until
one in the afternoon. Victory was in
Biz hands if nothing happened to his
car; an hour and a half lost in re
pairs would transfer all his advantage
to the Duplex.
He was Jealously
afraid to intrust his machine to his
assistant driver, and consequently
merciless to his mechanician and him

At Valf-past one, all the cars were

was spent in having the track hur

When at half-past two the racers
s m recalled to start anew, Stanton
sharply scrutinized his mechanician
before leaving the camp.
"I'm going to keep this car until the
end of the race." he announced, not

The scarlet of resentment flushed
through Floyd's grime-streaked pallor.
“You won't have to tie me.” he
promised, white teeth catching his lip.
"IH not flinch. Go on.”
Stanton actually laughed, bending
to his levers.
"I didn’t mean to tie you to keep
you from running away, but to keep
you from fainting and falling out,” he
The car bounded forward.
The track had been filled in with
wet mud from the infield—on the first
circuit the heavy Lozelle car skidded
and went through the fence at the
north turn. After that, nothing could
have induced Stanton to allow his
machine in other hands.
Hour after hour passed. The noisy
music of the band crashed out mon
otonously; the crowd swayed, mur
