ROUND UP

and the " slat back " chairs, which were evidently the chef-d'oeuvre and the piece de resistance of the chez Dwan.
" It came all the way from Pennsylvania," said Mildred, when Florence's outcries, brought on by her first look at the table, had died down. " Mother picked it up at a little place near Stroudsburg and sent it to me. It only cost $550, and the chairs were $45 apiece."
" How reasonable ! " exclaimed Florence.
That was before she had sat in one of them. Only one thing was more unreasonable than the chairs, and that was the table itself, consisting of big planks nailed together and laid onto a railroad tie, supported underneath by a whole forest of cross-pieces and beams. The surface was as smooth on top as the trip to Catalina Island and all around the edges, great big divots had been taken out with some blunt instrument, probably a bayonet. There were stains and scorch marks that Florence fairly crowed over, but when I tried to add to the general ensemble by laying a lighted cigaret right down beside my soup-plate, she and both the Dwans yelled murder and made me take it off.
They planted me in an end seat, a location just right for a man who had stretched himself across a railway track and had both legs cut off at the abdomen. Not being that kind of man, I had to sit so far back that very few of my comestibles carried more than half-way to their target.
After dinner I was all ready to go home and get something to eat, but it had been darkening up outdoors for half an hour and now such a storm broke that I knew it was useless trying to persuade Florence to make a start.
" We'll play some bridge," said Dwan, and to my surprise he produced a card-table that was nowhere near " in the period."
At my house there was a big center chandelier that lighted up a bridge game no matter in what part of the room the table was nut. But here we had to waste forty minutes moving lamps and wires and stands and when they were all fixed, you could tell a red -.uit from a black suit, but not a spade from a club. Aside from that and the granite-bottomed " Windsor " chairs and the fact that we played " families " for a cent a point and Florence and I won $12 and didn't get paid, it was one of the pleasantest afternoons I ever spent gambling.
The rain stopped at five o'clock and as we splashed through the puddles of Dwan's driveway, I remarked to Florence that I had iiever `known she was such a kidder.
