He also observed that the foot which rested upon the pedal of the piano was small and shapely. She was quietly dressed, in a darkblue serge skirt and a white silk blouse-or "shirtwaist," to employ the mysterious local designation -with short sleeves. She had round arms and good hands.

He waxed sentimental. Who was her husband? he wondered. He hoped it was not the proprietor of the establishment-a greasy individual of Semitic appearance, who occasionally found leisure, in the intervals between announcing the " turns " and calling the attention of patrons to the exceptional resources of the bar, to walk across the room and paw the girl affectionately on the shoulder while giving her some direction as to the music-nor yet the scorbutic young man behind the bar.
