CONTRACT

sleep, and therefore not afraid of disturbing her, Shelton went home, got out a bottle of Linden Scotch and put the finishing touches on his bender. In the morning Mrs. Shelton was a little better and came to the breakfast table where he was fighting an egg.
Well, what kind of time did you have? "
" Glorious! Much more exciting than at the Frenches'. Mrs.
Dittmar's brother is a piano playing fool."
" Oh. wasn't there any bridge then ?" " iVo, Just music and banter."
" Maybe the brother can't play contract and I spoiled the party
by not going."
" Oh, no. You didn't spoil the party! "
" Arid do we go to the Camerons' next Wednesday? "
" I don't believe so. Nothing was said."
They did go next Wednesday night to the palatial home of E. M. Pardee, a friend of Gale Bartlett's and one of the real aristocrats of Linden. After dinner, Mrs. Pardee asked the Sheltons whether they played contract, and they said they did. The Pardees, not wishing to impoverish the young immigrants, refused to play " families." They insisted on cutting and Shelton cut Mrs. Pardee.
" Oh, Mr. Shevlin," she said at the end of the first hand, " why didn't you lead me a club? You must watch the discards! "

Author's Postscript : This story won't get me anything but the money I am paid for it. Even if it be read by those with whom I usually play-Mr. C., Mrs. W., Mr. T., Mrs. R. and the rest-they will think I mean two other fellows and tear into me like wolves next time I bid a slam and make one odd.
