ROUND UP

" Not at all! " said L" Mr. Drake is perfectly human. He loves to have his music praised and I am sure he would be delighted to meet you if he weren", so terribly busy."
" Can you lunch with us yourself ?"
" Tomorrow? "
" Any day."
Well, whatever Ben and other husbands may think, there is no decent way of turning down an invitation like that. And besides I was lonesome and the Thayers looked like awfully nice people.
I lunched with them and I dined with them, not only the next day but all the rest of the week. And on Friday I got Ben to lunch with them and he liked them, too; they were not half as gushing and silly as most of his " fans."
At dinner on Saturday night, they cross-examined me about our immediate plans. I told them that as soon as the show was " over " in New York, I was going to try to make Ben stay home and do nothing for a whole month.
" I should think," said Mrs. Thayer, "it would be very hard.
. for him to rest there in the city, with the producers and pub

I won't let anyone know you are there and if any of our friends call on us I'll pretend we're not at home. I won't allow Mr. Drake to even touch the piano. If he wants exercise, there are miles of room in our yard to walk around in, and nobody can see him from the street. All day and all night, he can do nothing or anything, just as he pleases. It will be `Liberty Hall' for you both. He needn't tell anybody where he is, but if some of his friends or business acquaintances find out and try to get in touch with him, I'll frighten them away. How does that sound? "
" It sounds wonderful," I said, "but
" It's settled then," said Mrs. Thayer, "and we'll expect you on Sunday, October eleventh."
" Oh, but the show may not be 'set' by that time," I remonstrated.
" How about the eighteenth? " said Mr. Thayer.
Well, it ended by my accepting for the week of the twentyfifth and Ben took it quite cheerfully.
" If they stick to their promise to keep us under cover," he said, " it may be a lot better than staying in New York. I know
