Although I suggest you use some salt and pepper on it. 1 imagine your stomach Js pretty tough, but the bank Is made of bronze and it may be hard for even you to digest.' "Get out of here!" cried Alice Cummings, "Baby," said Johnny, "I'm go- He opened the door and went toward the elevator. She ran after him. "Wait!" she colled. Johnny punched the button for the elevator, \ "A rivederci! Auf wiedersehen ; —goodby." The elevator door opened. "Forty thousand. Tell Mr. Carmichael I'll take forty thousand . . " Johnny grinned 'nastily and pushed the "down" button. On the first floor he walked through the lobby, winking at tht: switchboard operator. Outside the apartment house. Kil- 'konny stood by the door. And at the curb was the Lucky Clover taxicab, with Harry Flanagan standing by the door. "All right, Fletcher," Flanagan sang out. "I'm through monkey- Ing around with you." Kilkenny closed in from the side. "Now, you and me are going to have this out!" he snarled. Johnny danced aside. "Do you boys know each other? You're both being played for suckers by Alice Cummings." Flanagan and Kilkenny had apparently never met before. Both looked at each other with hostile eyes. "Wlio're you?" barked Flanagan. "Punk!" sneered Kilkenny. "Goodby, now," culled out Johnny. He turned and ran swiftly down the street. Both Flanagan and Kilkenny made as if to take after him, but each was suspicious of the other. When he reached the corner, Johnny stopped and looked bark. Flanagan and Kilkenny were facing each other, both gesticulating angrily. * • • SAM CRAGG was free, but he was 35 miles from New York City, without a nickel in his pocket. And the Law was after him. , They'd be after him. He walked swiftly up a street, cut through an alley and saw railroad tracks. This was safer than the highway, he thought Of course he had no money, but Johnny and he had ridden the rods in the days of old. A long platform was ahead of him. Thfere were two or three people waiting for a train. Sam went up to one of the men. "When does the next freight train go through here?" he asked politely. "Freight train? I don't fhink I've ever seen a freight train on (his line." "All railroads have freight trains," insisted Sam. "How else would they move their freight?" 'Search me. All I know is that there's my train coming n'glit now," A train, pulled by an electric engine, rolled smoothly into the depot. The few passengers on the slatform began to board it. Sam ooked around htm, caught sight of a blue uniform at the far end of the platform. He sprang for :hc steps of a ear, scrambled, in. The train began to move. Sam went in and found a sent. The conductor entered the front of ;he car, scanned the tickets of .he passengers, stuck into the metal wedges beside the windows. He took a ticket from a new passenger, came down to Sam. "Ticket?" | "Huh? Uh, didn't you gel my ticket at the last station?" "I don't believe so," said the conductor. "I'd have left the slip there." The conductor indicated the ticket wedge by Sam's window. It was empty. "I was sure 1 gave it to you," grumbled Sam. "I'm sorry, you didn't." Sam began to search his pockets. Deliberately he explored his coat pockets, then stood up and went through his trousers pork- etc. The conductor waited patiently. "I know I bought « ticket," Sam insisted. "You may find it later." "Yeah, sure—I'll give it to you later. When I find it." "I'm afraid I'll have to hav« It now. Or the price." "How much is it?" "To Grand Central? A dollar ten." "Okay, I'll pay." Sam thrust his hand into his trousen pocket, showed exaggerated alarm. "Holy smokel" Quickly h« reached into his breast pocket 'My wallet! I left It at home on Lhc piano." "You have no money then,* said the conductor. "And no ticket." "Tell you what, buddy," Sam suggested, "I'll pay you tomorrow." • • • THE conductor had played the game all the way. But he was an old hand at this sort of thing. He said hastily, "You'll get off at the next station." M I can't," cried Sam. "I've got gel to New York. It's—it's mportant," "You'll get off," snapped the conductor, "or I'll kick you off." 'You and who else?" chal- enged Sam. The train was already slackening speed for the next slop. The conductor pointed to the door. "Out!" "1 asked you, who's going to m.ake me?" "I'll call a policeman," the iondnctor said. "It's against the aw to try to swindle the* rnil- oad out of a fare." The word "policeman" was inough for Sam.
