CHAPTER V. (Continued.)
Stanton gasped. Where had bls
taemory been, not to recall the name
of Floyd? A multitude of confused
recollections rushed across hfs mind,
of that famous manufacturer and
racer for sheer love of the sport, of
the superb cars he had built, and of
bis death In a railroad wreck, the
"He tied me In hfs car." continued
Floyd, with a shadowy smile, "when I
was too young to be trusted to hold
on. 'If you are going to take my me
chanician’s seat, Jes,’ he said to me.
•you have got to do my mechanician's
work.’ And by the time I was fifteen,
I could. We used to race with the
chief car tester, for combination train
ing. on a mile practice track around
the factory. I held the wheel myself
• t seventy-five miles an hour, before
1 was seventeen. And he took me
with him, as a spectator, to every big
race here and some abroad, Of course
he was training me to take charge of
the manufacturing business with him,
not for racing myself, But, somehow
affairs went wrong. When he died,
eighteen months ago, everything col
lapsed and 1 found nothing left. The
factory itself is tied up In a lawsuit; I
may get that out of the ruin; build
ings full of silent machinery I have no
capital to use, and no heart to sell."
There was a pause.
“I wonder,” Stanton mused slowly,
•why you volunteered to act as my
mechanician that night?”
Floyd's gray eyes flashed to meet
his. all his color and animation rush
“Because I love the racing, I love
it," be answered, impulsively frank. "I,
I’ve got my father's blood in my veins

—can’t you see how they fight? The
very smell of exhaust gas makes my
heart jump and pulses tingle. Ee-
sides, I had watched you often, I
couldn’t see you put out of the run

checked himself sharply. "Ought we
not to go back on the course?"
Stanton rose, signaling the waiter.
■"You saw me through that difficul
ty,” he acknowledged. "But, you said
this morning that you had a sister; I
wonder you stayed with me for the
"My sister understands," Floyd ex
plained; he had risen also, and stood
for a moment beside his chair, his
unseeing gaze bent on the ground.
“She knows that I was not brought up
to live woman-fashion. 1 wish, if ever
you bear anything of me that you do
not like, that makes you feel different
ly toward me, I wish you too would
remember that I was reared by a man
to live among men and missed all that
Stanton regarded him in an astonish-
went at once indulgent and ironic.
"I’m not likely to hear anything of
you that will shock me very badly,”
be dryly returned. “Do you think I

the prompt opinion; the candid gray

There was nothing said, Stanton
went on as if he had not heard. But
be carried with him the discovery that
It Is the perfection of comradeship to
be able to quarrel without bitterness
There was a tan-colored automobile
drawn up opposite the exit, when he
"Mr. Stanton,” summoned a low-
toned, smooth voice, from the car;
Valerie Carlisle leaned out, extending
a small hand.
She was the consummation of cool
daintiness and repose. It was impos
sible to meet her beautiful, concerned
eyes without yielding admiration, at
"I have been waiting here for an
hour,” she informed him. "I am ao
distressed that my car should have
hurt you. I shall reproach myself so
much if anything happens to you to
morrow because of your strained arm,
that I wanted to ask you about it my
self. A weakness there might kill
you, might it not?”
“It might, if it existed,” he con
firmed. "But the strain does not trou
ble me. I deserved to pay more se
verely for such stupid carelessness.”
She did not avoid his keen gaze at
all, yet somehow failed to Impress her
"It was an accident,” she deprecat
ed. “I suppose you just forgot Frank

a Duplex or an Atalanta, tomorrow. I
do not like the Mercury, It is so often
"It is faster than either of the oth
ers," Stanton defended, yet moved in
spite of himself by her anxiety for his
safety. "I am also obliged to admit
that it is not responsible for any of
our mishaps, so far, at least; I lead it
into trouble, myself, sometimes."
Her long, fair lashes fell; she tapped
her Angers nervously upon the door
“If you could not race, who would
be likely to win, Mr. Stanton?”
"You are taking it for granted that
I will succeed—1 easily may not. But

Thoroughly surprised, he promptly
"Excuse me to Mr. Carlisle; I must
get ready for tomorrow, Moreover, It
is for the Mercury company to discuss

her shimmering skirts.
