No le a peron that Master Thomas

all the newateoye were older and blgrer
and had lnng.r srtronrer leg than I't-
tle Thomas. So he always cam In
breathless at the end of the line to
find that nearly all the anatora and

It happened one ralr.y afternoon that
Mr. Ieeiiy who was then not governor
but a senator was wtl'xlng toward the

ing of boy the Bidden break and the
unequal race In which Tommy came
out a bad last. He followed and over
took the cIM. Just a he had reached

"Ys but what made you b-t the

"Oh. a butlnesa man can't stop for

Thomwa rewllly dlspceced 0f his

senate chamber. Then he come round
to where Senatoe Le.ly eat and thank-

"Now. ae-e here." aald the senator "If

the best way to stretch Thorn' leg
to the right sire was to let him In every

He found no riifflculty in winning
over all the er.ator. So he left a nasi
