But there wiu vet one more to

joyous bride. Then ho reached forth
the other hand and took the palm of

"Aye," cried It uric, grasping the

and while we look to Ood for help

And so closed the sccno as it

ilia mother said nothing. She
sighed if ho locked up at tho enow
covered windows, then glanced at
her companion with an expreion
that combined pride and pity. The
young man had not overstated his
prowess. Ho was a giant, a colooeus
in strength, seven feet tall, but so
thin, so long of limb, so strangoJy
drawn out that for miles around ho
was known as "Long Barton" anil

his father, who had been killed in
an avalanche two sensons before.
Tho winter had set in early, and a
succession of snowstorms had buriod
the littlo hamlet of a dozen houses
so doep in the snow that around the
Barton homo it was nearly 30 feet
on tho level, and tho hamlet, so far
as appearances went, had beem wiped
out of existence and lay with all its
domestic life under tho snow. The
entire malo population had dug the

"ITo'll win if the prizo is for ty

storekeeper. "He can't eju;il the

a log of redwood a mile a minute.
The front door wus shut, and he
struck it feet first and lunded right
in the party, hid legs all in knots.
The ski races had been announced
for a week, and Long Burton had
entered. The grand prize vea $?50,
and he believed he could win it. But
on tho morning of the event his
mother mado some excuse for re
maining home and was the only wo
man in the hamlet not present at
the races. Sho could not bear to
witness his defo.it. Tho course was
on the slopes of the sierras, a splen
did hill 2,000 feet long, slippery as
glass, and of so eharp an angle that
a man could not ascend it, and once
on it with skis, it was a race like tho
wind for nearly half a mile, then out
on to a gradual slope into the valley,
where the little villaee Jay buried.
Every town or villago in Plumas
and bierra counties of any preten
sions had a ski club, and many of
the membera were exports who hud

a few momenta no one answered.
Then, as the driver pulled tho blan

held closer to his breast, a voice

strapping on his 6kis, which had a
polish such as had never been soen
before. They gleamed in the sun
with dazzling brilliance If "dopo"
counted, there were thoee who be
lieved that "Tanglefoot" would win.

Bhot over the edge like a wave of
water over a fall and seemed to rush
into space, then sank so rapidly
from view that they were gone be
fore the excited onlookers realized
it. The speed increased rapidly, and
in 10 seconds waa like that of a fast
trotter, at 15 it waa emial to the
fastest train of cars, and at 20 the
best men were holding their breath,
as it was impossible to breathe at
such speed, and the slightest swerve
would send them off the track. From
tho side the scene was a frightful
one, as it was hard to believe that
human beings could preserve their
position and not bo dashed to pieces
under such extreme velocity. But
the line swept on, a few of the racers
surging ahead. Half way down, and
four are in advance, two-thirds, and
one tall figuro is leading.
It is Long Barton, lie is rushing
with the speed of light. The new
"dopo" is carrying him on to victo
ry. Ho knew it; nis teeth were set;
his heart was in his mouth the
goal was just ahead. Then some
thing happened. IIo swerved a
tenth of an inch: a piece of Ice
caught tho channel of his polished
ski, perhaps, and the next second
tho line of racers rushed liko the
wind by a figuro rolling over and
over, its legs, arms and long skis
seemingly tangled In a hopeless
knot. 'Tanglefoot" had lost acain.
and tho loud laughter and gibes of
the spectators rang in his cars as.
iiau stunned, no sua to tne bottom
and picked himself up. .To their
credit, the winners did not laugh.
It was tho crowd on tho hill, and
Barton took off his skis and. avoid
ing them, walked over the snow and
was lost to sight in the shoot that
led to bis home.
That night, as was tho custom.
there was a ball, and st the earnest
wish of his mother Long Barton
went. But he took no part in the
entertainment and sat by the stove
and watched tho merrymakers.
