ROUND UP

how late it was and I asked him didn't he think he better be going and he said he'd go if I'd go with him, so I asked him where could we go at that hour of night, and he said he knew a roadhouse just a little ways away, and I didn't want to go, but he said we wouldn't stay for only just one dance, so I went with him. To the Jericho Inn.
" I don't know what the woman thought of :ne where I stay, going out that time of night. But he is such a wonderful dancer and such a perfect gentleman ! Of course we had more than one dance and it was after two o'clock before I knew it. We had some gin, too, but he just kissed me once and that was when we said good night."
" What about your G. F., Marian? Does she know? "
" About Roy and I? No. I always say that what a person don't know don't hurt them. Besides, there's nothing for her to know-yet. But listen: If there was a chance in the world for her, if I thought he cared anything about her, I'd be the last one in the world to accept his intentions. I hope I'm not that kind ! But as far as anything serious between them is concerned, well, it's cold. I happen to know that ! She's not the girl for him.
" In the first place, while she's pretty in a way, her complexion's bad and her hair's scraggy and her figure, well, it's like some woman in the funny pictures. And she's not peppy enough for Roy. She'd rather stay home than do anything. Stay home ! It'll be time enough for that when you can't get anybody to take you out.
" She'd never make a wife for him. He'll be a rich man in another year; that is, if things go right for him in Wall Street like he expects. And a man as rich as he'll be wants a wife that can live up to it and entertain and step out once in a while. He don't want a wife that's a drag on him. And he's too goodlooking for Marian. A fella as good-looking as him needs a pretty wife or the first thing you know some girl that is pretty will steal him off of you. But it's silly to talk about them marrying each other. He'd have to ask her first, and he's not going to. I know ! So I don't feel at all like I'm trespassing.
" Anyway, you know the old saying, everthing goes in love. And I But I'm keeping you from reading your book. Oh, yes; I almost forgot a T. L. that Miss Halsey said about you. Do you know what a T. L. is?"
" Yes."
" Well, then, you give me one and I'll give yon this one."
