ROUND UP

I'm glad to know. And now we'd better join the ladies or my wife will say I'm monopolizing you."
They joined us, much to my relief. I had just reached a point where I would either have had to tell " Hilda " exactly how much . Ben earned per annum or that it was none of her business.
" Well! " said Mrs. Thayer to Ben. " I was afraid Ralph had kidnapped you."
" He was showing me the shrubbery," said Ben.
" What did you think of it? "
" It's great shrubbery," said Ben, striving to put some warmth into his voice.
" You must come and see it in the spring."
" I'm usually busy in the spring."
" Ralph and I are mighty proud of our shrubbery."
" You have a right to be."
Ben was taking a book out of the bookcase.
" What book is that?" asked Mrs. Thayer.
" ` The Great Gatsby,"' said Ben. "I've always wanted to read it but never got around to it."
" Heavens! " said Mrs. Thayer as she took it away from him. " That's old ! You'll find the newest ones there on the table. We keep pretty well up to date. Ralph and I are both great readers. Just try any one of those books in that pile. They're all good."
Ben glanced them over and selected " Chevrons." He sat down and opened it.
" Man! Man! " exclaimed Mrs. Thayer. "You've picked the most uncomfortable chair in the house!"
" He likes straight chairs," I said.
" That's on the square," said Ben.
" But you mustn't sit there," said Mrs. Thayer. " It makes me uncomfortable just to look at you. Take this chair here. It's the softest, nicest chair you've ever sat in."
" I like hard straight chairs," said Ben, but he sank into the soft, nice one and again opened his book.
" Oh, you never can see there !" said Mrs. Thayer. " You'll ruin your eyes ! Get up just a minute and let Ralph move your chair by that lamp."
" I can see perfectly well."
" I know better ! Ralph, move his chair so he can see."
" I don't believe I want to read just now anyway," said Ben, and went to the phonograph. " Bess," he said, putting on a record, "here's that ` Oh! Miss Hannah! ' by the Revelers."
