DEPUTATIONS-WITH A DIFFERENCE

Hughie, fighting for breath, rose and joined Joan in the window recess, while Miss Harbord, with much ostentatious crackling, folded up the newspaper and put it away.
" Hughie," said Joan, under cover of the noise, "you are angry."
" Not at all," replied Hughie, wiping his eyes furtively. "A bit flummoxed -that's all. No idea your friend was so up in these things."
" She is clever, isn't she?" said Joan, with unaffected sincerity. "But, Hughie dear, don't bother about it if it worries you. My affairs must be a fearful nuisance to you, but Ursula was so keen that I should come "
"I'm glad you did, Joey. I was worth it," said Hughie simply.
"Of course," continued the unlearned Miss Gaymer, " to people like Ursula these things are as easy as falling off a log, but for you and me, who know nothing about business, they're pretty stiff to tackle, aren't they?"
" Quite so," agreed Hughie meekly. "But look here, Joey," he continued, "are you really in want of money?"
" Of course she is!" said Miss Harbord, overhearing and resuming the offensive.
" I could do with a few more frocks, Hughie," said Miss Gaymer wistfully, "if it wouldn't be a bother to change those investments about ' a bit, as Ursula advises. Still, if it can't be done, we'll say no more about it."
