ROUND UP

" All right," said Lewis, and left.
" Forty-five dollars' worth of flowers," said Green to himself, and smiled for the first time that morning.
He looked at his watch and got up and put on his beautiful hat.
" I'm going to lunch," he told Miss Jackson, on his way through the outer office. " If Peebles or anybody important calls up, tell them I'll be here all afternoon."
" You're not forgetting Mr. Plant's funeral? "
" Oh, that's right. Well, I'll be here from one-thirty to about three."
A head waiter at the Astor bowed to him obsequiously and escorted him to a table near a window, while the occupants of several other tables gazed at him spellbound and whispered, " Conrad Green."
A luncheon of clams, sw eetbreads, spinach, strawberry ice cream, and small coffee seemed to satisfy him. He signed his check and then tipped his own waiter and the head waiter a dollar apiece, the two tips falling just short of the cost of the meal.
Joe Martin, his chief librettist, was waiting when he got back to his office.
" Oh, hello, Joe! " he said, cordially. " Come right inside. I think I've got something for you."
Martin followed him in and sat down without waiting for an invitation. Green seated himself at his desk and drew out his cigarette case.
" Have one, Joe? "
" Not that kind! " said Martin, lighting one of his own. " You've got rotten taste in everything but gals."
" And librettists," replied Green, smiling.
" But here's what I wanted to talk about. I couldn't sleep last night, and I just laid there and an idea came to me for a comedy scene. I'll give you the bare idea and you can work it out. It'll take a girl and one of the comics, maybe Fraser, and a couple of other men that can play.
" Well, the idea is that the comic is married to the girl. In the first place, I'd better mention that the comic is crazy about beans. Well, one night the comic-no, wait a minute. The police get word that the comic's wife has been murdered and two policemen come to the comic's apartment to investigate. They examine the corpse and find out she's been shot through the head. They ask the comic if he knows who did it and he says no, but they keep after him, and finally he breaks down and admits that he did it himself.
