"Hold on, Dick," he called out, in a friendly voice, at the same time quickening his pace.
Dick turned in some surprise, for John Haynes had a foolish pride, which had hitherto kept him very distant toward those whom he regarded as standing lower than himself in the social scale.

"No," said John, with remarkable affability. "I shouldn't think there'd be much fun in it."

"I suppose you have some time to yourself, though, don't you?"
