ROUND UP

Just as we were getting to sleep, Mrs. Thayer knocked on our door.
" I'm afraid you haven't covers enough," she called. "There are extra blankets on the shelf in your closet."
" Thanks," I said. "We're as warm as toast." " I'm afraid you aren't," said Mrs. Thayer.
" Lock the door," said Ben, " before she comes in and feels our
feet."
All through breakfast next morning we waited in vain for the telephone call that would yield Irene's message. The phone rang once and Mrs. Thayer answered, but we couldn't hear what she said. At noon Ben signalled me to meet him upstairs and there he stated grimly that I might do as I choose, but he was leaving , Liberty Hall ere another sun had set.
" You haven't any excuse," I reminded him.
" I'm a genius," he said, " and geniuses are notoriously eccentric."
" Geniuses' wives sometimes get eccentric, too," said I, and began to pack up.
Mr. Thayer had gone to Philadelphia and we were alone with our hostess at luncheon.
" Mrs. Thayer," said Ben, " do you ever have premonitions or hunches? "
She looked frightened. " Why, no. Do you? "
" I had one not half an hour ago. Something told me that I positively must be in New York tonight. I don't know whether it's business or illness or what, but I've just got to be there! "
" That's the strangest thing I ever heard of," said Mrs. Thayer. " It scares me to death! "
" It's nothing you need be scared of," said Ben. " It only concerns me."
" Yes, but listen," said Mrs. Thayer. " A telegram came for you at breakfast time this morning. I wasn't going to tell you about it because I had promised that you wouldn't be disturbed. And it didn't seem so terribly important. But this hunch of yours puts the matter in a different light. I'm sorry now that I didn't give you the message when I got it, but I memorized it and can repeat it word for word: ` Mr. Ben Drake, care of Mr. Ralph Thayer, Lansdowne, Pennsylvania.
