'"I was standing in front of the church," Leemnn recalled, "and the boys were taking 'Calamity 1 otit and there were only five of them. One pallbearer, I think It was F. X. Smith, was sick. "George Hopkins, he was one of Ihn pallbearers, he ."=aid, 'Well, there's Goorpe, he's an old-timer and he knew Calamity,' so they asked me to step in. And that way, ; sort of by accident, I was a pnll- besner at 'Calamity Jane's funeral. '•But I never got my name in the \ newspaper." YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN OLIVER! HE'S A REAL WATCH DOG!

Johnny Hamilton had entries in two of the cheapei grinds and Rusty copped the 6rst with J fine display of horsemanship The other he didn't win. out he pulled everything out at the mare she 'lad and carne in second, nhead of some superior horses. It was a claiming race, and Ihe rnare was claimed by KovaiL "Cured?" Johnny asked Ritsly Rusty nodded "1 figured it all put. The worst [hat could happen is I might get killed. And that would be a break compared to the way I (ell yesterday" He looked up si Juliuny. "You find another boy yet—for the big one?" This would be the Atwaler Slakes John? snook his head. "We figured you'd be the boy Rusty." ^ The lad flushed. "Even afler— yesterday?" "Even after yesterday.** "Thanks Mr. Hamilton I'll give him a ride: I promise you that." "Him?" Johnny said. "You figured Adonis?" "Adonis is the best in the string, bar none. He wouldn't work lor Tod. but—well. I've been kind of talking to Adonis in the stable, and I think we understand each other." Johnny tried to keep from smiling. b"l to no avail. He said. "You belter start talking lo Bella. She's our hope in the Slakes. We can't trust Adonis. Not yet." Riifty avoided his eyes. "Well, I'm just a jock I don't mean lo tell ynu how '« "in your business, but there's an allowance coming up. Wednesday, and it might be a pl.irc to try Adonis. He hasn't had a lesl this year, you know." Johnny promised lo give Ihe idea some Ihought. And Ihe more he thought aboul il, Ihe better it looked. Nystrom agreed with him; if the colt showed well, the race could act at a tiehtener for the fStake*. So it was arranged that was jinxed, he 'Adonis would enter the race. 'pHE few wins they had. plus the other finishes in money spots, had gone toward expenses, which were considerable in a stable this size Two of their cheaper mounts liad been claimed, and they had picked up no others. There was money In claimcrs. if one had ihe eye and the purse. Roth Johnny and Nystrom had the eye. but Ihe purse wasn't adequate. t'arol came up for Ihe Wednesday racing- She'd bought a new set of tires all around, and could make the trip. "Six ply, too," Johnny teased her. "You must be in the money." "I've a Job." she said "Ai Ihe Club Madrid." "Never heard of it," Johnny said. "It's the newest, the toniesl, and the busiest in town. And I'm the feature attraction." She stretched up lo kiss him. "So if your horses won't win. it won't matter. I'll lake care of you, honey " ast track, and the allowance would be filled with fast norses. They had no other entries, but he mci Carol played a few races. A S^ bel was her limit, and sbe made it Johnny's. They bet every race but the first, aefore ihe allowance. Johnny was, at that time, SI.80 ahead. Carol had lost almost S5. She had bet all o( them lo show, Johnny lo win. Johnny nodded gravely. "I've almost S2 no r v, to pay on the SI 00,000." florscs were parading out for the allowance now, and Adonis was third in line. He looked ready, this hot afternoon. He was the best looking colt in that good looking field, and Johnny was proud of him. But he hnrln'l bet a cent. Nor had Carol. Adonis had disappointed them before. Ny strom came over lo their box. He had just come up from the stabls. He asked. "Flow's the Hamilton Hunch on this one?" "I didn't bet," Johnny told him. "Nor I," said CaroL "How about you. Uncle £d?" Nystrom only stared at her as .Johnny said. "Your uncle, honey, wouldn't bel if he was alive. He has yet to make h\? first wager." "Nothing in the world." her uncle snid, '"is as uncertain as a hor?c race. And S2 will buy a lot of oats."

Johnny laughed afler Rusty's head bobber! up and down. "I hope he understands why he doesn't get them when he misbehaves." "He does," said Rusty.
