WHO DEALT?

I know you'll say I ought to have done something. Well, there they are ! Let's see your hand, Helen. Oh, Tom, she's-but I mustn't tell, must I? Anyway, I'm dummy. That's one comfort. I can't make a mistake when I'm dummy. I believe Tom overbids lots of times so I'll be dummy and can't do anything ridiculous. But at that I'm much better than I used to be, aren't I, dear?
Helen, do you mind telling me where you got that gown? Crandall and Nelsons's ? I've heard of them, but I heard they were terribly expensive. Of course a person can't expect to get a gown like that without paying for it. I've got to get some things while I'm here and I suppose that's where I better go, if their things. aren't too horribly dear. I haven't had a thing new since I was married and I've worn this so much I'm sick of it.
Tom's always after me to buy clothes, but I can't seem to get used to spending somebody else's money, though it was dad'ss money I spent before I did Tom's, but that's different, don't you think so? And of course at first we didn't have very much to spend, did we, dear? But now that we've had our raise All right, Tommie, I won't say another word.
Oh, did you know they tried to get Tom to run for mayor? Tom is making faces at me to shut up, but I don't see any harm in telling it to his best friends. They know we're not the kind that brag, Tommie. I do think it was quite a tribute; he'd only lived there a little over a year. It came up one night when the Guthries were at our house, playing bridge. Mr. Guthrie-that's A. L. Guthrie -he's one of the big lumbermen out there. He owns-just what does he own, Tom? Oh, I'm sorry. Anyway, he's. got millions. Well, at least thousands.
He and his wife were at our house playing bridge. She's the queerest woman ! If you just saw her, you'd think she was a janitor or something; she wears the most hideous clothes. Why, that. night she had on a-honestly you'd have sworn it was a maternity gown, and for no reason. And the first time I met her-well, I ust can't describe it. And she's a graduate of Bryn Mawr and one of the oldest families in Philadelphia. You'd never believe it ! She and her husband are terribly funny in a bridge game. He doesn't think there ought to be any conventions; he says a person might just as well tell each other what they've got. So he won't pay any attention to what-do-you-call-'em, informatory, doubles and so forth. And she plays all the conventions, so you can imagine how they get along. Fight ! Not really fight, you know, but argue. That is, he does. It's horribly embarrassing to whoever
