REUNION

There was a silence, which was broken by Bob's asking his sister how often she went to New York.
" Only when I can't help myself, when I simply have to get something."
" Don't you never go to the theater? "
" Oh, yes, if it's something especially good."
" Of course," said Jennie, " you've seen Abie's Irish Rose? "
" Heavens, no! " said Rita. " Everybody says it's terrible! "
" Well, it's not terrible! " said Bob indignantly. " That is, if you've got anywheres near as good a company here as they have in Chicago."
" I'd like to see the New York company," said Jennie, " and see how they do compare."
This met with no encouragement and another silence followed.
" Well, Bob," said Stu at length, "you must do something for exercise. How about a little tennis in the morning?"
" That's another game I don't play," Bob replied. "As for exercise, I get plenty of it fooling around the garden and monkeying with the car."
" Then all I can suggest is that we put in the day fishing or swimming or just riding around in the launch."
Bob was silent, but his wife spoke up.
" You know, Stuart, Bob's ashamed to admit it, but being on the water makes him deathly sick, even if it's as smooth as glass. And he can't swim."
Bob didn't seem to relish this topic and turned to his sister.
" Do you remember the Allens in Buchanan, old Tom Allen and his family? "
" Kind of."
" Did you hear about Louise Allen running away and getting married? "
" No."
" Well, she ran away with Doe Marshall and got married. And at first old Tom was pretty near wild, but when Doe and Louise came back, why one day Doc was walking along the street and old Tom came along from the opposite direction and Doe spoke to him and called him by name and old Tom looked at him and asked him what he wanted, and Doe said he wanted to know if he'd forgave him. So old Tom said, 'Forgiven you ! Have you forgiven me, is the question.' So Doe said, forgiven him for what, and old Tom said, for not killing her when she was a baby. This put the laugh
