A DAY WITH CONRAD GREEN

" You're the best husband a girl ever had! "
" I'm glad you're pleased," said Green.
" Pleased ! I'm overwhelmed. And to think I imagined you'd forgotten ! But I'm not going to break up your whole day. I know you want to get out to poor old Plant's fuueral. So I'll run along. And maybe you'll take me to dinner somewhere tonight."
" I certainly will ! You be at the Ambassador about six-thirty and we'll have a little birthday party. But don't you want to leave the pearls here now?"
" I should say not! They're going to stay with me forever Anyone that tries to take them will do it over my dead body!"
" Well, good-by, then, dear."
" Till half past six."
Green, alone again, kicked shut the door of his safe and returned to his desk, saying in loud tones things which are not or dinarily considered appropriate to the birthday of a loved one. The hubbub must have been audible to Miss Jackson ouside, but perhaps she was accustomed to it. It ceased at another unan nounced entrance, that of a girl even more beautiful than the one
who had just gone out. She looked at Green and laughed.
" My God! You look happy! " she said.
" Rose ! "
" Yes, it's Rose. But what's the matter with you?"
" I've had a bad day."
" But isn't it better now? "
" I didn't think you were coming till to-morrow."
" But aren't you glad I came today? "
" You bet I am! " said Green. " And if you'll come here and kiss me I'll be all the gladder."
" No. Let's get our business transacted first."
" What business? "
" You know perfectly well ! Last time I saw you you insisted that I must give up everybody else but you. And I promised you it would be all off between Harry and I if Well, you know. There was a little matter of some pearls."
" I meant everything I said."
" Well, where are they? "
" They're all bought and all ready for you. But I bought them in Philadelphia and for some damn reason they haven't got here yet."
" Got here yet ! Were they so heavy you couldn't bring them with you? "
