CHAPTER X.  Tt was tho most enthusiastic camp-,  meeting Unit had been hold thereabout for years, , all tho farmers and  thoir wives and thoir daughters declared, as they clambered into thoir  wagons and carry-alls and jogged  klowly homeward. The old traveling  evangelical minister was a success,  they voted, and they would have  been well pleased to have heard bim  again.  As for the minister himself, he was  glad to see the country people enjoy his exhortations so thoroughly.  And he wondered, too, why tho fair-  haired, handsome young man and  the pretty, dark-eyed young girl  should linger after all the rest had  departed to talk with him; and yet,  after a few desultory remarks had  been made, he was not so very much  surprised when he was called upon  to wed them. He was only too������ willing, and bid them clasp each other's hands and stand before him.  Despite the firm pressure of Glen-  denning's fingers closing over her  own. the girl trembled. It was such  a solemn thing, this marriage ceremony. How blue the sky looked  through the network of green leaves,  and how green the grass was beneath her feet, with its nodding daisies and harebells and timid buttercups. It seemed to take the old minister an age to adjust his spectacles,  open the sacred Book, and find the  place. And in the interim how the  face of the heavens changed! The  sun hid his face behind a cloud and  the light of the summer day dark-  eneu; the wind sighed among the  branches of the trees, like spirits in  distress; a bird that was twittering  _buL_a_ moment since on a bough over her head flew off wfth a "sEaTtled"  cry. But neither the cloud, nor the  wind, nor the bird warned the girl  that she was taking a step which  sho would rue in anguish more bitter than death during all the years  of. her after life.  '���������Make haste if you please,' good  sir,'.' exclaimed Glendenning, impatiently. "It is blowing up for a  storm sand it'will be down upon us  boforo we can reach home."  "The knot will be tied as quickly  as it can be done, sir," returned the  minister, who hnd by this time  found the place jn his book.  Five minutes, and the words wero  uttered which could never be unsaid,  and Neva, fair, innocent Neva, was  tlie lawfully wedded wife of Glendenning. Then tho old gentleman  drew from his pocket a package of  marriage ������������������certificates and proceeded  to fill ono out,  "I have so ninny affairs of this  kind to attend to as I travel about  from village to village that I always carry them about with mo  nowadays,'*. ho explained.  Horo, uguin, an unexpected dilemma presented it-self. Oscar Clenden-  ning was obliged to give the nnmn  of Uoger instead of his own. For an  instant he had hesitated when tho  quest ion of namo canin up,  "It enn not matter in point oflnw  whether I sav linger or Oscar," ho  Mild to himself. "It is tho man niy  littlo Neva is marrying, not tho  namo. I can straighten nil that out  later In explaining lhe matter to  hor." lie did not wish to startle  hor by mont inning It at that, ull-iin-  portiint epoch of their lives. And  upon this one point, dour render,  1-HHt.s all tho sorrow of Iho girl's future, Only a few words! Ah! how  much thoy moon to the two stand,  jug there, Then the Old miniMer pronounced tliom man nml wile until  death did thoin part,  "Mny you hnvo a happy llfo of  It," ho added, placing his trembling  hand upon tho girl's dnrh bond, SJm  thnnki'd him through her happy  ttmi'H. Tho cortillcato was duly mndo  out and handed to luu-, and ho  watched thoin ns, hand in hnnd, thoy  turned from him at length and walk-  ctl down the magnolia-bordered rond  together���������watched thmu until a bend  in tho road hid thom from Ills view.  "May 1 leaven (ind pardon for tlio  thought, but I do not qutto liko his  face," ho muttered, as he mounted  hi* horse and rode slowly nwny in  nn opposite direction.

Fueling faint, ho s-tuppod at the first  (urm-lHi'i*.n for ft rIhhs nf water, if*  ant down on tho doorstep ta    wait  for it, and when they filched it thoy  found him leaning against the pillar of the porch with a smile on his  lips. Ho bad preached his last sermon in this world, and had set forth  on the road he had so long pointed  out to others. And thus it happened that the record of the marriage  just solemnized never reached the office of the county clerk to be duly  fi-ed there.  Meanwhile, the newly made bride  and groom slowly wended,their way  back to the ���������old farm-house, planning, as only the young and hopeful  can who have life before them, the  happy future they were to pass with  each other. That walk homeward  was the happiest hour of Neva Glen-  denning's life How pitiful it is that  joy is so fleeting and sorrow lingers  so long by our side!  At the gate they saw Neva's mother. She did not realize then,    but i  she knew afterward, why the girl ran j  to her, flung her white arm    around  her    neck,    covering  her    face  with  kisses and tears. j  "Such  en  experience  as  we    have1  had a little while ago!" began Mrs. I  Gray,   excitedly.   "Three    constables  from the next county were    in    the  house.     They were on a search    for  some fugitive whom they    have besro  tracking down for   over two months.  He   is  somewhere  hereabouts,     they  say. Ugh! it makes me shudder even  to think of it. Why, with such   men  prowling about we are not safe from  being   murdered    in  our  beds    any  night. I shall have all the dogs kept  in the house after this night."  ,   Glendenning listened  like  one dazed. There was no, doubt in his mind ]  but that he was the fugitive    they j  Were hunting down.   ��������� ��������� j  "Did they mention the name of tho !  man they were looking for?" he asked  with  white  lips,   speaking    with'  IKfficuTtyT "���������~���������_ . __  "No. They did mention,   however, j  that it was useless to call him    by  any name,  for,  ten  chances to  one,  he went under an assumed one."       '  "Did they    describe him?"    asked j  Glendenning, still in that   unearthly,  hoarse voice.  "Yes, they inquired minutely of  one of the farm-hands, for every one  else about the house was at the far  end of the orchard. He does not understand good English and did not  understand half the questions they  asked of him. They rode on, but will  be back this way to-morrow. Uo  caught that much of their conversation."  Glendonning's face had    turned    a  ghnslly white as ho listened, but ho  did not utter a word lost his    voice ���������  should betray his. emotion,    A little f  Inter ho came to Nova ns    she   was '  clearing    away  the    supper    dishes  alone in the wide, cool farm kitchen, ���������  "I must have a word with you,  Nevfi," ho said, hoarsely. "I���������I���������om  called suddonly away from hero, One  of tho farmers below hero who is  going ovor to tho village has con- j  sen ted to tako me.

Km-king from  the window hu uaw that the farmer.  who was awaiting his coming, was  growing impatient, and from the next  room he heard the footsteps of Neva's mother rapidly approaching.  Glendenning had barely time to release heV ere the mother entered.  "Good-bye," he said, extending his  hand to the girl.  "Good-bye," she murmured, striving hard to,.keep, back her tears,  And, with a lingering ^glance, he  turned, then walked rapidly from the  roc-ai and from the house.  CHAPTER XI.      ,  lhe long day drew to a close at  las;, and it seemed to Neva as  tlls'ugh long years of desolation had  passed ovor hor young head.  Jl, almost seemed to hor as though  the very thought that he had gone  away was some horrible dream  which she could shake off and awake  from  presently.  llow dreary the house seemed! Every hour in the day she found herself listening for his step or h.s  voice When the darkness of night  fell, the girl crept to her lonely  room, threw herself upon her couch,  and cried herself to sleep, and in  her dreams his face haunted her. Ah,  dear Heaven, how lonely it was  without him!  ������very one noticed Neva's depression, and attributed it at once to  the departure of handsome, graceful  Glendenning.

THE SNOB IN ENGLAND.     I  Plutocrat Master of England's High So- '  cial Circles and Begins Now to  Dictate Terms Therein.  H. B. Marriott Watson, the English  author, writes: Plutocracy spells snobbery always. The class which has established itself on top always will receive deference from the class which  is struggling up to gain admission to  those ranks. There Is no hope of admission to them without money, and  hence plutocracy means snobbery. As  we are the most plutocratic nation "n  Europe, we are also the most snobbish.  If one wished to be amiable one might  plead that the snob is by -way of being  an idealist. He reveres a social status  which he does not possess. In comparison with certain other failings characteristic of other nations than ours  our national weakness may be considered venial.  Snobbishness is not crime.  But, on the other hand, it is one of  the most offensive properties to the  superficial eye of the observer of social life. "Tommy," said Byron of  Moore, "dearly loves a lord." Your snob  dearly loves a lord. But that is a deY  tail in his character, for he has a perfect social code by which he directshls  life. He has been, in existence so long  now that he has organized himself. He  has become almost respectable by reason, of his antiquity. And his opinions  and ideals have obtained currency in  all classes of the community. They  have tainted the once independent and  autocratic views oif the aristocracy.  However stupid the aristocracy might  be, it at least developed its own ideals  and habits in former days. To-day it  has accepted 'the traditions of 'the snob.  To the snob (and through him to the  English social world generally) it is essential to have gone to a public school.  One recalls Du Maurler's picture ef Sir  Gorglus Midas regretting he had not  had the advantages of Eton to the duke,  and his grace in turn regretting that  he' had. The public school has been  taken over by the snob. In the famous  Victorian days there -were pursuits definitely barred to Tgentlemen," who  must either enter army or navy or become barrister or parson or doctor if in  want of a profession. But changing  times have -change, all that, although  the snob still has his preferences. These  professions are the "safest"; they convey respectability.  The snob-remains with us with certain altered characteristics. Once he  aspired to reach an aristocracy which  was by ne means founded on wealth,  and his aim was thus not wholly ignoble. But the wealth of the middle  class~has-contaminated-society,.and_the,  old ideals have been supplanted by the  new ideal of money. Plutocracy reigns  supreme and unashamed in London society, and the snob no longer merely  loves a lord; he loves a wealthy man.  If one is to judge by the papers, London society is made up of Americans  and continentals. Occasionally English  names appear, but the cosmopolitan  element bulks largest in importance.  The cosmopolitanism of society only  became possible by reason of the snob.  He pushes hls^ way in, and the social  circles which once would have been  shut against him open to receive him  warmly. The plutocrat is master of  tho situation and is beginning to dictate terms.  It is he now (or she) who 'breeds independent opinions and starts new fashions and generally imposes his (or her)  will on society.  AMAZING WEDDING.  Couple Married In London While Llv*  ing on Continent.  Inquiries by the Zurich police have-  brought to light an extraordinary story  of the alleged marriage in a London  church of a couple Who at the time  were on the Continent.  M. Blarek and his wife, the latter of  Austrian nationality, were recently arrested at Zurich as dangerous Anarchists. Investigations resulted in the  discovery that the couple bad been  married by a remarkable method. They  sent papers relating to themselves to  a friend in London, who, it is stated,  took them to a clergyman, with the  result that the marriage ceremony was  celebrated, although the bride and  bridegroom were at Zurich. English  marriage laws have become notorious  in Switzerland, adds our correspondent,  and the term "married in England" is.  one of reproach.  ��������� .  It is possible that an explanation of  our correspondent's message may b������  found in the unscrupulous personation  by paid agents of the couple who desired a record of their English mar-  , riage. The marriage laws of many  Continental countries impose restrictions not known ta Britain, such, for  Instance, as considerable length of residence and the consent of parents.  Here, with a residence of under1 a  month, It is quite possible to be married, and such marriage being confirmed by the foreign consul is binding -a  the country from which, the visitor^  come. Hundreds of couples visit England for the purpose of a speedy mar-  I riage.  I It is quite possible, therefore, that  an unscrupulous agent In London*  might procure two persons representing themselves as the couple whose papers were In his possession to go-  through the marriage ceremony. When*  it was completed, the papers and evidence relating to the marriage might  ���������be forwarded to the real couple, who*  j have all the time been on the Continent.  A Weadertel Bseapt.

Famous   British    Scientist    Eulogises.  Their Virtues.  A discourse on beneficent microbes-  was delivered by the -famous scientist,  Sir Michael Foster, at the opening of  the new bacteriological laboratory presented to the Rothamstead experimen-  ���������' tal station by Mr. j. F. Mason, M. P.  I    Sir Michael thinks that bacteriologl-  cal research may show that microbes,,  so "far Irom Seing eriemlSr^f*^tTffiaiiT=~  Ity, play an important part in provld-  i ing the nation's food.  He declared that In the work at  Rothamstead there had hitherto been.  a lack of any study of the part which  microbes play in the work of the soil'  and the plant. We heard a good deal.,  he said, of microbes which were our  very good friends, and some of th������.  best of them were those working silently and unseen in the soil.  i    The   struggle    for    existence   was*  v fundamentally a struggle for nitrogen,  and there were microbes in the soil:  which were making the nitrogen of  tha air eatable by humanity.  "Thanks to Mr. Mason's gift," continued Sir Michael, "1 hopo that much,  light will be thrown on the action ot  microbes in producing our natural  food."  AMBULANCE DOGS.  Four-Legged Recruits For Red Cross  Service In England.  The value of ambulance dogs in tlmo  of war was demonstrated at the annual  Inspection of tho Royal Army Medical  Corps (volunteers), by Col.

She woulds have no  6oldiers to guard her. She preferred to  rest under the protection of her own  people, and the people came crowding  about the palace, saying: "Make no  noise! Do not disturb our lltt.e mother!" She loved the fields and woods of  Petrovsky, as well she might.

The red walls, with  their white stone facings and round  towers, seen among the trees, give a  delightful impression of elegant seclusion.

As Soon aa We Begrin to Make Them
We Begin to Suffer.
We would not have to strive so for
-courage if what we vaguely call
"things" were more evenly distributed
���ainong us, for no one's lot would then
seem to him an evil one. If we were
-all humpbacked or lame or blind;
if every husband wore unfaithful aud
every child a cross;-if we were all poor
and no man had any more than anoth-
-er; if nobody's sou died In his early
���strength and nobody was loved while
iwe sat neglected, then who Of us
��� would know what sorrows aud afflictions were? We would take each of
'them for granted, as a Chinaman tukea
���his yellow skin and an Indian his red
It is because we see our estate differing from that of our fellows tliat we
are tempted to comparisons, and it ia
ln the making of theso comparisons
that a sense of our sorrows, like the
knowledge of our afflictions, is first
(born. How would we havo known that
**yve were poor unless we had seen,some
-one else who was richer or that our
-son was unsuccessful unless the son of
-somebody else were making a great
mark in the world? Would our little
-children be unhappy with only one
dress had they not seen other children with two?
It comes to this, then: When we begin to make comparisons, we begin to
-suffer. This may seem to be a hard
6aying, but it is a true one.���Lillie
'Hamilton French in Harper's Bazar.
Sleeplessness.���When -the nerves are
unstrung and the whole body given
up to wretchedness; when the mind
is failed with gloom and 'ismal fore-
' -bodings, the result of derangement of
the digestive organs, sleeplessness
come? to add to the distress. It' only i
thte subject could sleep, tliere would
be oblivion for a while and tempor-1
iarj relief. Parmelee's Vegetable
��� Fills will not only induce sleep, but
will act so beneficially that* n.e siui-
ject will awake refreshed and restored
to happiness.
Have  a Definite  Aim.
No1 life amounts to much until it
���has a programme���something definite,
.-something particular. Nothing else can
'take the place of it Education can-
>not, talent cannot, genius cannot, hard
���work cannot.   Until there is a definite
������aim the energies will run to waste, the
'ability be squandered. The faculties
'deteriorate when working without a

Advancing   Expeditions   to   the
North   Pole.
"With the expedition headed by Walter Welliiian from Spitzbergeu, that of
Mylius Erichsen from G'-oonland and
that of Mikkelsenfroin Alaska, air advancing upon the pole this summer, interest iu Peary who went north last
summer and thus has a year's start of
them, is becoming greater," writes P.
T. McGrath in the Chicago News from
St. John's, NY I*\ "Peary went north
from Newfoundland in July. 190*>, iu
his splendid new steamer Roosevelt
and hoped to be able io work his way
up into the polar basin west of Greenland before navigation closed, a feat
almost accomplished by Captain Hall
In the Polaris in 1ST1. An open season
lu the seaway tbere, which occurs occasionally, euables an extreme northing to be made, and if Peary were so
favored he would be able to shorten by
some hundreds of miles the distance he
would have to cover on foot in advancing toward the pole itself. Peary's intentions were to send Eskimos south
from iiis ship to Cape Salv'.ne this summer with news of his progress. The
Scotch whalers which left Dundee in
May for Davis strait took letters for
him in case their cruise carried them
so far north. They were also authorized to take aboard and convey south
any dispatches which might be lodged

last accessible outpost, in tho north. In
addition to the Scotch whalers, the
Newfoundland scaler Adventure, which
has been chartered by the dominion
government for patrol service in Hudson bay and will proceed there in July,
will also go to Cape Sabine and should
reach tbere about the middle of August. Peary's friends have requested
that the Adventure make a special
search there Cor records from him,
and as these are always deposited beneath a cairn in Lifeboat cave, the
"scene-of the Greely tragedy in 1SS4, it
ls certain that any papers which may
be sent south by him will be recovered and the fact probably communicated to the world from the Marconi
station ou Labrador. It is thus highly probable that toward the end of that

Abruzzi, who advanced that far in

second year there, working into tha
polar basin this summer and pushing
poleward next winter and spring over
the mighty floes which stretch to the
apex )f the globe. Peary's most formidable opponent will be Wollman, with

Cured    Through the   Rich, Red   Blood
Dr. .William's Pink Pills Actually
Thousands of women ������> suffer from
headaches, dizziness, langour. and
nervousness. Few realize that, their
misery all comes from the bad state of
their blood. They take one thing for
their head, and another for their stomach, a third for their nerves. And yet
all the while it is simply their blood
that is the. cause of all their trouble.
Dr. William's Pink Pills cure all these
and other blood troubles because they
actually make new, rich, red blood.
'Mrs.'J. H. MclA.rt.hur, St. Thomas, Ont.,
says: "Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have
done me a world of good. For about
eighteen months I'was a constant sufferer. I was terribly run down and the
least exertion left me fagged out. I
weakened me, and finally I had to give
up housekeeping and go boarding as I
Was quite unable to do any housework.
I took doctor's medicine but it was o^f
little or no benefit. One day a neighbor
told me how .much benefit she had derived from Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and
advised me to try them. I sent and got
three boxes; and by the time I had
used them I could feel a change for
the better. Then I got four boxes more
and before they -were all gone my health
was fully restored. To see me now one
would not think II had ever been sick
for a day, and I can honestly say I
owe my renewed health to Dr. Williams
Pink Pills."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are the
greatest cuve there is for the weakness and backaches and sidt-aohes of
anaemia, all tho distress of indigestion,
all the pains and aches of rheumatism,

The Turcomans who live on the east
ern shore of the Caspian sea, carry
their villages about with them whei
they travel. As a tribe sets out on a
Journey every man packs his wooden
house upon a camel, which the animal
can easily carry, and when a spot is
reached where he and his friends In
tend to remain for any great length of
time the camels are unloaded'and a
village started which it takes about an
hour or so to build.
It is to be remembered that tbe
bouses are real houses and not tents
and that the settlement Is not a camp,
but a village. Tbe traveling house of
the Turcoman ls a marvel of skill and
Ingenuity and is really much lighter,
more portable and can be packed Into
a much smaller compass than any of
the so called portable bouses that are
manufactured and sold in some parts
of our country.
The frame Is made of strong, light
wood laths about an inch broad by
three-quarters of an inch thick, crossing each other when set up ln position
at right angles about a foot apart and
fastened at each crossing by the thongs
ot rawhide so as tb be movable, and
the wholo framework may be opened
or shut ln tbe same manner as those
toys for children that consist of a
equad of wooden soldiers, and will expand or close at will so as to form
open or close columns.
One part or more made In this way
and all inclosing a circle fifteen or
twenty feet across form-the skeleton
of the walls and are firmly secured in
place by bands of ropes made of hair
or wool fastened round the end of each
rod. From the upper ends of these
rods similar rods bent near the wall
and Into something less than a right
angle are so disposed that the longer
portions slope to the center and, beinf
tied with rope, form the roof.
Over this is thrown a covering of
black felt, having in the center a large
hole which answers both for a window
and a chimney. Large pieces of the
same coarse black felt are wrapped
round the walls, and outside these, to
keep all tight, is bound another frame
of split reeds or canes or of some very
light, tough wood bound closely together'with strong-cords.

And In due course the last.Dogr- Day  passed and the day of the steeplechase  dawned bright, clear and not uncomfortably warm.  It seemed as If half the population  of Menagerie Borough turned out to  witness the event, but best of all was  the turnout from Wat Township and  Quonkville, each of which engaged  front places for its best rooters.  Benny Quonk and Larry Quonk were,  the favorites of the one* **ide and Bar-  riy Rat and Cribby Rat were the picked winners of the other side.  Squire Hat stood out in front of the  starting line'and scolded Benny Quonk  roundly for taking the inside track,  so Benny said:  "All right, you can have all the advantage on your side, for all I care.'"  And he turned his hopper over to  the outside track.  At last tho four jockeys had their  hoppers on* the line, the bell rang, the  starter cried, "Ready! One, two, three,  go!" and hoppety-hop-hop, away flew  the four hoppers down the course.  "Go' it, Benny!" yelled hundreds of  Rats.  a multitude of Quonks.  "Good for Larry!" sang another multitude of Quonks.  "Cribby's getting :here, all right!'  shouted a crowd of Rats.  Hoppety-hop-hop went the ��������� hoppers  almost neck and neck, lvilf way rounc  the course, when, alas! fo- Bains  Rat, he took a horrible header ano  was put out of tie race.  Next came a hurdle,' and here Larry  Quonk fell headforemost into a pooN  and his hopper came down on top oi  him, and alter the hopper, came Crib-  by Rat and his hopper, pell-mell, ker-  splash! . *  That left Benny Quonk an easy victor, to amble in to the ^oal and smilingly receive the bone-nets and triumphant shouts of his delighted fel-  low-Quonks;  He was highly pleased to win the  Grand Prize, which he generously announced tliat he would divide with tlu  fellows" in an extempore banquet to bi  given in Quonkville Inn.  "Yes, it was a jolly race" said he  "but the best thing .ibom it wat- thai  It has shown those Impertinent Rp4������  their place, and hereafter they'll le:iV,������  off their "airs."  THERE was wild excitement in  Quonkville one bright morning.  On the bulletin board over the  bridge across the street from  Dr. Jeremiah Quonk's drug store, the  passing Quonks had their attention arrested by the following poster announcement:  Attention. QnonkH, Big  ���������      , and Xittle!  On the day following the last  Dog Day, to wit, viz: The 13th  of August, there will be conducted a Grand Steeplechase in the  fair grounds.     ,-,  Only grasshoppers between four  and eight weeks old will be allowed to enter the race, and the  jockeys must be young fellows  under twelve months old.  GRAND PRIZE of TEN  THOUSAND EXTRA FINE  BLUE BOTTLE FLIES for the  owner of the winning hopper.  ���������A11 intending competitors  should give their names to the  general manager, J E R RY  QUONK, Esq., No. 16 Frogville  Row. not later than August 12.  No wonder the Quonks became wildly  excited! For not in the memory of  the oldest inhabitant had there been  a steeplechase held on the Fair  Grounds (or any other grounds, for  that matter).  There was a tradition that about five  {fenerations back a magnificent stee-  Teaching Elephants  THOUGH the elephant is not carnivorous he is dangerous enough  at times. If you want to teach  an elephant to stand on his head, you  have  to  be very  careful    Chains  are   placed   around_his_ hind  quarters,   and  he is^heh"lTors^rea~By_pull?ys~iAto-the  air often enough for him to understand what is required of him.  To teach these bulky creatures to  pose is very difficult. One well-known  position is one elephant standing with  his forepaws on the hindquarters of  another, while he flourishes his trunk  in a theatrical attitude. To teach him  to do this you have to pa.s<? a chain  round his neck and another round his  trunk.  The assistants haul 'i.vay on the  "neck chain until the animal begins to  choke Naturally, he n.s**s on his hind  legs mi order to be able to breathe.  Then tlio trunk cable is hauled on, and  the elephant on whose back he is to  place his forepaws it; backed tinder  them. Curiously eno-itvh, elephants  dislike this treatment nnd often, after  a severe lesson, will attack their  teacher. <-.  If you want a waltzing elephant, you  will havo to engage a numbor of  strong assistants, who will push tho  elephant round/some at Hither end of  tho groat boast. You then bhout  "Waltz!" and all begirt pushing, Soon  the elephant learns to -.vhlii, on tho  sound of tlio word, of h'������ own accord.  Such tricks as ringing a hell, grinding an organ, are simple and effective  . You simply put tho object, in the elephant's trunk and Hbako it for him.  when ho dances with tinkling bells  round his foot, one foot at a time ls  lifted and shaken by the nsslstants.

Nicholas,  plechase had been held, with the Rats  as competitors against the Quonks for  a grand prize of one thousand blue  bottle flies, and that the Quonks had  come out victorious.  At any rate, the Quonks had ever considered themselves vastly superior to  the Rats, much to the secret indignation of the latter fellows. Of late, indeed, the Rats had become openly  abusive and disagreeable . They had  got into the way of flocking over  to the Quonks' Saturday ball games,  for instance, and calling out ' nasty  things to the Quonks on the diamond.  "Just look at Popeyes!" one yelled  derisively.  "Goodness, what a swell he is under  his chin!" another added  "Grinny mouth!" cried another.  "Banty legs!" yelled another. And  numerous other . insulting epithets  they hurled at the Quonks, till the  Quonks were thoroughly exasperated.  "What are you, anyhow, but ugly,  lowdown Rats?" croaked they. "The  only time you ever stood up in fair  competition with us we licked you."  "When was that " .shrieked the Rats.  "In that steeplechase long, long  ago."  "Steeplechase, fiddlesticks!" returned  the Rats, "the idea of your believing  that granny's yarn Give us a chance  and we'll show you what we can do in  a steeplechase"  "Very well, we challenge you to win  a steeplechase off us," croaked the  Quonks.
