A DAY WITH CONRAD GREEN

` Honest, dear, they'll be here day after tomorrow at the latest."
" ` Honest' is a good word for you to use! Do you think I'm dumb? Or is it that you're so used to lying that you can't help it?"
" If you'll let me explain-"
" Explain hell! We inade a bargain and you haven't kept your end of it. And now "
" But listen "
" I'll listen to nothing! You know where to reach me and when you've kept your promise you can call me up. Till thenWell, Harry isn't such bad company."
" Wait a minute, Rose! "
" You've heard all I've got to say. Good-by! "
And she was gone before he could intercept her.
Conrad Green sat as if stunned. For fifteen minutes he was so silent and motionless that one might have thought him dead. Then lie shivered as if with cold and said aloud: .
" I'm not going to worry about them any more. To hell with all of them ! "
He drew the telephone to him and took off the receiver. " Get me Mrs. Bryant-Walker."
And after a pause:
" Is this Mrs. Bryant-Walker? No, I want to speak to her personally. This is Conrad Green. Oh, hello, Mrs. Walker. Your secretary called me up this morning, but we were cut off. She was saying something about a benefit. Why, yes, certainly, I'll be glad to. As many of them as you want. If you'll just leave it all in my hands I'll guarantee you a pretty good entertainment. It's no bother at all. It's a pleasure. Thank you. Good-by."
Lewis came in.
" Well, Lewis, did you get to the funeral? "
" Yes, Mr. Green, and I saw Mrs. Plant and explained the circumstances to her. She said you had always been very kind to her husband. She said that during the week of his illness he talked of you nearly all the time and expressed confidence that if he died you would attend his funeral. So she wished you had. been there."
" Good God ! So do I!" said Conrad Green.
