XIH •pHE hotel was on Capitol Street, only a short distance away. As w* walked there Lucy said, "Mr. .McDonald has been very much with us. It's been gay. Oh, so gay. Lunch, dinner, breakfast I've b«n getting quit* a rush from the fat boy." •He's a lonely man," I said It must be pretty lonely to be a man nobody trusts." She gave me t quick look. -Do you think I appeal only to lonely men? " 1 didn! mean anything like that," I said. "Don't go feminine on me, please. Did you get anything out of McDonald?" -Yes," said Lucy. "Lunch, dinner, cocktails, an earful of petty bias and a tummyful of Clyde McDonald." We had reached the hotel, and Lucy led the way to the elevators The Governor's suile v;as high up » the hotel, and the windows overlooked the town and the Capitol. It was a clean, tidy town, as shiny =s a Sunday morning Governor Warbiirton was relaxed In an easy chair, reading a Ijewspaper, and Bill Evcrs was on jpie telephone. When I entered with Lucy, the Governor put down his newspaper and Bill dropped the telephone on its cradle in the middle of a sentence and shouted, "Mason, where have you been? Why didn't answer mv wire?" "I'm Answering it in person," I said. "Hoy, have you seen the papers?" the Governor said. "That New Orleans speech last night went over bi?." 1 pulled up a chii>. "Governor, •y Edwin Unhun what do you remember about an old lady named Harriet Perkins?" "Miss Hsttie?" the Governor said. "Why, she taught school Why?" "It's all over town that she's not coming to your reception." 1 said, and hesitated an instant. "I'm afraid it's my fault." | • • • JT51LL EVERS Jerked his head | nervously, and excitement made him stutter. "Wh-what have you done now, Roy?" "It's your fault, too," 1 said. "M-my fault? I don't know the lady. What arc you talking about?" "You helped m« with that part of the book," I said. "Page 7S." I handed a copy to BilL "Let me see it," Governor War • burton said, and took the book from Bui's hands. Bill had opened it to page 16. and read the paragraph over the Governor's shoulder. Bill finished first, and gave me a blank look. "I don't see anything wrong with that." But Governor Warburton's eyes had widened. "I never got the highest marks in my class. I never walked two miles to school and back every da; And when she :ept me after school—Oh, my!" We al! slarcd at the Governor. He dropped the book to his lap and said. "That sheepskin coat!" "Governor," Bill said, "what's a sheepskin coat got to do with it?" The Governor looked at him and understood, as 1 did, that Bill's worry and his aftcction for the Governor had brought the harsh tone into his voice. The Governor smiled and said, "It's nothing very damning, Bill, but I imagine it could be made lo look so by a man like Clyde McDonald. You see. when I was a boy t wanted a sheepskin coat and 1 saved up the money to buy it from the mail-order house. It cost 515.95 poslnaid.'and it was a beauty. I couldn't wait lo go coon hunting IB tbat theepskui coat. and I was'down at trie post office every day. asking if it had come yet, I carried the money around in my pocket, tied up with cotton string and weighted to my Jackknife." Governor Warburlon leaned back in his chair. "1 was going to school with Miss llattie in those days, and we had a little fund, our school did. It was Miss Haltie's idea that the best way to keep tK out of trouble on Halloween was lo have a party at the school, nnd she got tlie parents and .he kids to kick in a fund for expenses." "Governor," Bill broke in. "Just be palienl. the Governor said. "I'll give you the whole story, as it happened, and le! me say 1 was acutely aware of my responsibility for that school fund. 1 kcpl it in a cigar box. and 1 kept the box under my mattress, and not a day went by .that 1 didn't look in it to see if the money was safe. Bat, you see, they had a county fair about then and I used to ride a little when I was a kid. Baring quarter horses was .the sport back in Hyde County." "You mean you rode in RACES Governor?" Bill said hollowly. * » • "ALL of us kids rode in those days, Bill," the Governor went on. "At the Hyde County Fair, I was up on a paint horse named Spot, and he was fast. Very fast. I'd ridden Spot before, and I didn't think there was a horse in the county that could beat him at a rjuarler of a mile. Of course, a difference of opinion makes a horse race, and you know how it is at a county fair. It's a pretty exciting thing, and when a kid is mingling with adulls, and talking horses with them on equal terms, it goes to his head. Well, I imagine you've guessed what happened. I bet S15 on Spot to win the race—15 to 10." "The school money. Governor?" Hill asked weakly. "Not the school money," the Governor said. "The sheepskin coat money, Bill." Lucy Strawn sighed and murmured. "Poor old Sjio!, he didn't come through." "He cast a shoe," the Governor said.
