CHAPTER XVI

" I wish I could always get Denis to sing as well," said Mrs. Bailey. " Usually he won't open his mouth."
" He was in jolly good form to-day," said Maureen.
" He can sing very well when he likes," said Mrs. Bailey. " Only you won't take the trouble, Denis, will you ?"
" I think I'm better in a duet, mother."

" A millionaire from Chicago took the place next door to us last summer. He asked father and mother to dinner and insisted on playing roulette afterwards."
" Roulette, indeed."
" Mother wouldn't play ; but father had told a story during dinner about Monte Carlo, so he couldn't very well refuse. He lost about a hundred pounds I believe, though he wouldn't tell me."
" Well I never," said Mr. Bailey. " Good gracious."
On the way home Denis overtook Maureen. " Careful, Denis," she said. " Don't run me over." Denis stopped the
