THE LOVE NEST

does now, only worse. But I haven't done anything wrong, see? The men I might care for, they're all scared of him and his money and power. See, Barker? And the others are just as bad as him. Like fat old Wrris, the hotel man, that everybody thinks he's a model husband. The reason he don't step out more is because he's too stingy. But I could have him if I wanted him. Every time he gets near enough to me, he squeezes my hand. I guess he thinks it's a nickel, the tight old ! But come on, Barker. Let's have a drink. I'm running down."
" I think it's about time you were running up-up-stairs," said Bartlett. " If I were you, I'd try to be in bed and asleep when Gregg gets home."
" You're all right, Barker. And after this drink I'm going to do just as you say. Only I thought of it before you did, see? I think of it lots of nights. And tonight you can help me out by telling him I had a bad headache."
Left alone, Bartlett thought a while, then read, and finally dozed off. He was dozing when Gregg returned.
" Well, well, Bartlett," said the great man, " did Celia desert you? "
" It was perfectly all right, Mr. Gregg. She had a headache and I told her to go to bed."
" She's had a lot of headaches lately; reads too much, I guess. Well, I'm sorry I had this date. It was about a new golf club and I had to be there. I mean I'm going to be president of it. I see you consoled yourself with some of the Bourbon. I mean the bottle doesn't look as full as it did."
" I hope you'll forgive, me for helping myself so generously," said Bartlett. " I don't get stuff like that every day! "
" Well, what do you say if we turn in? We can talk on the way to town tomorrow. Though I guess you won't have much to ask me. I guess you know all about us. I mean you know all about us now."
" Yes, indeed, Mr. Gregg. I've got plenty of material if I can just handle it."
Celia had not put in an appearance when Gregg and his guest were ready to leave the house next day.
" She always sleeps late," said Gregg. " I mean she never wakes up very early. But she's later than usual this morning. Sweetheart! " he called up the stairs.
" Yes, sweetheart," came the reply.
" Mr. Bartlett's leaving now. I mean he's going."
