ROUND UP

Oh, are you waiting for me? What did you say, Arthur? Two diamonds? Let's see what that means. When Tom makes an original bid of two it means he hasn't got the tops. I wonderbut of course you couldn't have the-heavens ! What am I saying 1 I guess I better just keep still and pass.
But what was I going to tell you? Something about-oh, did I tell you about Tom being an author? I had no idea he was talented that way till after we were married and I was unpacking his old papers and things and came across a poem he'd written, the saddest, mushiest poem ! Of course it was a long time ago he wrote it; it was dated four yeaxs ago, long before he met me, so it didn't make me very jealous, though it was about some other girl: You didn't know I found it, did you, Tommie?
But that wasn't what I refer to. He's written a story, too, and he's sent it to four different magazines and they all sent it back. I tell him though, that that doesn't mean anything. When you see some of the things the magazines do print, why, it's an honor to have them not like yours. The only thing is that Tom worked so hard over it and sat up nights writing and rewriting, it's a kind of a disappointment to have them turn it down.
It's a story about two men and a girl and they were all brought up together and one of the men was awfully popular and well off and good-looking and a great athlete-a man like Arthur. There, Arthur ! How is that for a T. L.? The other man was just an ordinary man with not much money, but the girl seemed to like him better and she promised to wait for him. Then this man worked hard and got money enough to see him through Yale.
The other man, the well-off one, went to Princeton and made a big hit as an athlete and everything and he was through college long before his friend because his friend had to earn the money first. And the well-off man kept after the girl to marry him. He didn't know she had promised the other one. Anyway she got tired waiting for the man she was engaged to and eloped with the other one. And the story ends up by the man she threw down welcoming the couple when they came home and pretending everything was all right, though his heart was broken.
What are you blushing about, Tommie ? It's nothing to be ashamed of. I thought it was very well written and if the editors had any sense they'd have taken it.
Still, I don't believe the real editors see half the stories that are sent to them. In fact I know they don't. You've either got to have a name or a pull to get your things published. Or else pay
