ROUND UP

" Bob," he said, " you ought to fall off the wagon. I've got some of the most able-bodied Scotch on Long Island."
" Thanks," said his brother-in-law. " I may be tempted before long."
It was late in the afternoon when Bob said to Rita :
" Do you remember old Tom Allen? "
" I think so," his sister replied. " Didn't his daughter run away with some doctor? "
" Yes," said Bob, " and "
He was interrupted by Stu's voice, calling Rita from upstairs.
" Listen," said Stu when she had answered his summons, "A telegram is coming for me tonight, saying that my grandfather is sick up in Bennington, Vermont, or some place, and for me to come at onee. And he's going to stay sick for at least ten days, so sick that I can't leave him."
" No, sir! " said Rita firmly. " You don't do that to me I"
" Well, then, how about this? Suppose it's one of our dearest friends that's sick and we've both got to go. Do you think they'd go home? You see, we could pack up some baggage and run in to New York and stay over night if necessary, and come back here after they're gone."
" If they ever found out, I couldn't forgive myself."
" They won't. You let me plan it and we'll spring it after dinner. I wouldn't be so desperate if I hadn't just got so I could break an eighty-five and if I don't keep after it I'll be back in the nineties."
But after dinner, while Rita and Stu were sparring for an opening, Jennie said :
" Folks, I hope you won't think we are crazy, but Bob is, almost. He's worried to death about his garden. He read in-the paper this morning that there's a regular drought threatened all through southern_Michigan. We were afraid of it, because it hadn't rained for a long time before we left. And now it looks like everything would be ruined unless he gets back there and tends to things himtself. We left old Jimmy Preston to look out for things, but you can't trust things to an outsider. Bob feels like if he was there, he could see that things were taken care of. The garden will get plenty of water if Bob is there to see to it, but if he isn't, there's no telling what will happen. So if you'll forgive us, we're thinking about starting home on The Wolverine tomorrow afternoon."
" Well ! " said Rita.
" Well ! " said Stu.
