round bi?ad slipped cautiously around
the corner of the dressing tent. The
little doacon glanced exultantly about
him. He was monarch of all he sur

here on this forbidden frround smelling
til" sawdust, gazing at the big red wag
ons, studying the unprotected circus
properties and listening to the l!;rhten
Jng tempo of the baud.
"Did you see him?" shouted Stronv;.
who bad followed closely upon Elver-
The little deacon started. Strong was

"Oct out 'f here, you bloke!" roared
Barker, and Elverson "got."
No one had remembered to tell the

This was tbe second time today that
Bingo had been led away without go

big, wondering eyes made Polly follow
him and apologize. He was very
proud, was Bingo, and very conscien
tious. He felt uneasy when be saw
the other horses oing to their work
"Never mind, Bingo," she said, pat
ting his great, arched neck; "we'll
show 'em tomorrow." He rubbed his
satiny nose against her cheek. "We'll
make them sit up again. Barker says
our act's no good that I've let down.
But It's not your fault. Bingo. I've
