To raise the cash for races here; 
We've got a hundred pounds or two --

I hope he yards 'em, 'twill do him good; 
To see us going I don't think would." 
A turn in the road and, fair and square, 
They meet the old man standing there. 
"What's up?" "Why, running away, of course," 
Says Jim, emboldened. The old man turned, 
His eye with wild excitement burned. 
"I've raced all day through the scorching heat 
After old Bowneck: and now I'm beat.
