ROUND UP

"I'm sorry to say I'm not married."
" Oh, you poor thing! `Ve pity him, don't we, sweetheart? But why aren't you, Mr. Bartlett? Don't tell me you're a woman hater ! "
" Not now, anyway," said the gallant Bartlett.
" Do you get that, sweetheart? He's paying you a pretty compliment."
" I heard it, sweetheart. And now I'm sure he's a flatterer. But I must hurry and get the children before Hortense puts them to bed."
" Well," said Gregg when his wife had left the room, " would you say she's changed? "
" A little, and for the better. She's more than fulfilled her early promise."
" I think so," said Gregg. " I mean I think she was a beautiful girl and now she's an even more beautiful woman. I mean wifehood and maternity have gi-ien her a kind of a-well, you knowI mean a kind of a pose. I mean a pose. How about another drink? "
They were emptying their glasses when Celia returned with two of her little girls.
" The baby's in bed and I was afraid to ask Ilortense to get her up again. But you'll see her in the morning. This is Norma and this is Grace. Girls, this is Mr. Bartlett."
The girls received this news calmly.
" Well, girls," said Bartlett.
" What do you think of them, Bartlett?" demanded their father. " I mean what do you think of them? "
" They're great! " replied the guest with creditable warmth. " I mean aren't they pretty? "
" I should say they are! "
" There, girls! Why don't you thank Mr. Bartlett?" " Thanks," murmured Norma.
" How old are you, Norma? " asked Bartlett. " Six," said Norma.
" Well," said Bartlett. "And how old is Grace?" " Four," replied Norma.
" Well," said Bartlett. "And how old is baby sister?" " One and a half," answered Norma. " Well," said Bartlett.
As this seemed to be final, " Come, girls," said their mother. " Kiss daddy good night and I'll take you back to Hortense."
