ROUND UP

"Maybe not exactly pretty," said her friend, "but kind of sweet-looking, like a baby. You'd think all the men would be crazy about her, but they aren't. Lots of people don't even think she's pretty and I suppose you can't be really pretty unless you have more expression in your face than she's got. Poor Mildred hasn't had many advantages."
" At this time of year, I'd rather be in Atlantic City than San Francisco."
" Oh, isn't Atlantic City wonderful ! There's only one Atlantic City ! And I really like it better in the winter. Nobody but nice people go there in the winter. In the summer-time it's different. I'm no snob, but I don't mind saying that I hate to mix up with some people a person has to meet at these resort places. Terrible ! Two years ago I went to Atlantic City with Bess Eldridge. Like a fool I left it to her to make the reservations and she wired the Traymore, she says, but they didn't have anything for us. We tried the Ritz and the Ambassador and everywhere el'se, but we couldn't get in anywhere, that is, anywhere a person would want to stay. Bess was engaged to Harley Bateman at the time. Now she's married a man named Wannop from Minneapolis. But this time I speak of, we went to Philadelphia and stayed all night with my aunt and we had scrapple and liver and bacon for breakfast. Harley was a dandy boy when he wasn't drinking. But give me Atlantic City any time of the year! "
" I've got to send a telegram at Grand Island."
" Oh, if I sent one from there, when would it get to Elkhart?"
" Tonight or tomorrow morning."
" I want to wire my sister."
" Well, wire her from Grand Island."
" I think I'll wait and wire her from Frisco."
" But we won't be in San Francisco for over two days yet."
" But we change time before then, don't we? "
" Yes, we change at North Platte."
" Then I think I'll wire her from Grand Island."
" Your sister, you say? "
" Yes. My sister Lucy. She married Jack Kingston, the Kingston tire people."
" It certainly feels empty, where that tooth was," said Chapman.

As the train pulled out of North Platte, later in the afternoon, Chapman rejoined the two girls in the observation-car.
