ROUND UP

truthfully that the foot-brake was not working; Ted must be kept out of the garage till tomorrow morning.
Ted and Caroline had taken naps in the afternoon and gone off together in Paul Murdock's stylish roadster, giving their word that they would be back by midnight or a little later and that to morrow night they would stay home.
And now their mother and father were sitting up for them, be cause the stockings could not be filled and hung till they were safely in bed, and also because trying to go to sleep is a painful and hopeless business when you are kind of jumpy.
" What time is it? " asked Grace, looking up from the third page of a book that she had begun to " read " soon after dinner.
" Half past two," said her husband. (He had answered the same question every fifteen or twenty minutes since midnight.)
" You don't suppose anything could have happened? " said Grace.
" We'd have heard if there had," said Tom.
" It isn't likely, of course," said Grace, " but they might have had an accident some place where nobody was there to report it or telephone or anything. We don't know what kind of a driver the Murdock boy is."
" He's Ted's age. Boys that age may be inclined to drive too fast, but they drive pretty well."
" How do you know? "
" Well, I've watched some of them drive."
" Yes, but not all of them."
" I doubt whether anybody in the world has seen every nineteen year-old boy drive."
" Boys these days seem so kind of irresponsible."
" Oh, don't worry ! They probably met some of their young friends and stopped for a bite to eat or something." Tom got up and walked to the window with studied carelessness. " It's a pretty night," he said. " You can see every star in the sky."
But he wasn't looking at the stars. He was looking down the road for headlights. There were none in sight and after a few moments he returned to his chair.
" What time is it? " asked Grace.
" Twenty-two of," he said.
" Of what?"
" Of three."
" Your watch must have stopped. Nearly an hour ago you tolel me it was half past two."
