ROUND UP

The $22.50 offer from the gas office was manna from somewhere; it topped his highest previous salary by seven dollars and a half.
Stephen's mother died and Stephen married Stella Nichols, to whom lack of money was no novelty. But they had a couple of children and soon fell into debt, which made Stephen less efficient than ever as a collector of the company's back bills. IIe couldn't blame other people for not settling when he was stalling off creditors himself.
All he could do was wish to heaven that the Old Man would come across with a substantial raise, and he knew there was as much chance of that as of Stella's swimming the English Channel with a kid under each arm.
The Gales were too poor to go to picture shows; besides, there was no one to leave the children with. So Stephen and Stella stayed at home evenings and read books from the town library. The books Stephen read were books of poetry.

He wrote a poem to Stella and gave it to her on one of her birthdays and she said it was great and he ought to quit the darn old gas company and write poetry for a living.
He laughed that off, remarking that he was as poor now as he cared to be.
He didn't show Stella his other poems-poems about Nature, flowers, the Lackawanna Railroad, the beauties of Maysville, et cetera-but kept them locked in a drawer of his desk at the gas office.
There was a man named Charley Roberts who traveled out of New York for an instantaneous water-heater concern. For years he had been trying to sell old Townsend, but old Townsend said the heater ate up too much gas and would make the customers squawk. They squawked enough as it was. Roberts was a determined young man and kept after Townsend in spite of the latter's discouraging attitude.
Roberts was also a. wise-cracking, kidding New Yorker, who, when at home, lunched where his heroes lunched, just to be near them, look at them and overhear some of their wise-cracks which he could repeat to his fellow drummers on the road. These heroes of his were comic-strip artists, playwrights and editors of humorous columns in the metropolitan press.
His favorite column was the one conducted by George Balch in the Standard and when he was in the small towns, he frequently
