Excerpt: Chapter 1. THE LURE OF THE CIRCUS. ?I say, Phil, I can do that.? ?Do what, Teddy?? ?A cartwheel in the air like that fellow is doing in the picture on the billboard there.? ?Oh, pshaw! You only think you can. Besides, that?s not a cartwheel; that?s a double somersault. It?s a real stunt, let me tell you. Why, I can do a cartwheel myself. But up in the air like that well, I don?t know. I guess not. I?d be willing to try it, though, if I had something below to catch me,? added the lad, critically surveying the figures on the poster before them.
