ROUND UP

" You would like our cream. We have our own cows and the cream is so rich that it's almost like butter. Won't you try just a little?"
" No, thanks."
" But just a little, to see how rich it is."
She poured about a tablespoonful of cream into his coffee-cup and for a second I was afraid he was going to pick up the cup and throw it in her face. But he kept hold of himself, forced a smile and declined a second chop. • •
" You haven't tasted your coffee," said Mrs. Thayer.
" Yes, I have," lied Ben. " The cream is wonderful. I'm sorry it doesn't agree with me."
" I don't believe coffee agrees with anyone," said Mrs. Thayer. " While you are here, not doing any work, why don't you try to give it up?"
" I'd be so irritable you wouldn't have me in the house. Besides, it isn't plain coffee that disagrees with me; it's coffee with cream.'
" Pure, rich cream like ours couldn't hurt you," said Mrs. Tha.yer, and Ben, defeated, refused to answer.
He started to light a Jaguar cigaret, the brand he had been smoking for years.
" Here! «'ait a minute! " said Mr. Thayer. " Try one of mine."
" What are they? " asked Ben.
" Trumps," said our host, holding out his case. " They're mild and won't irritate the throat."
" I'll sample one later," said Ben.
" You've simply got to try one now," said Mrs. Thayer. " You may as well get used to them because you'll have to smoke them all the time you're here. We can't have guests providing their own cigarets." So Ben had to discard his Jaguar and smoke a Trump, and it was even worse than he had anticipated.
After luncheon we adjourned to the living-room and Ben went straight to the piano.
" Here ! Here ! None of that! " said Mrs. Thayer. "I haven't forgotten my promise."
" What promise? " asked Ben.
" Didn't your wife tell you? I promised her faithfully that if you visited us, you wouldn't be allowed to touch the piano."
" But I want to," said Ben. " There's a melody in my head that . I'd like to try."
