THE FACTS

"I was afraid Aunt Mary would bore you to death," she told Billy, when they had kissed for the first time since five o'clock. "She just lives for the church and can talk on no other subject."
" I wouldn't hold that against her," said Billy charitably.
The fudge was a failure, as it was bound to be. But the Case,
who came in just as it was being passed round, was the only one
rude enough to say so.
" Is this a new stunt?" he inquired, when he had tested it.
" Is what a new stunt?" asked Ellen.
" Using cheese instead of chocolate."
" That will do, Walter," said his father. "You can go to bed."
Walter got up and started for the hall. At the threshold he
stopped.
" I don't suppose there'll be any of that fudge left," he said.
" But if there should be, you'd better put it in the mouse trap.
Billy called a taxi and departed soon after Walter's exit. When
he got out at his South Side abode, the floor of the tonneau was littered with recent cigarettes.
And that night he dreamed that he was president of the anticigarette league; that Dr. Gish was vice-president, and that the motto of the organization was "No trump."
Billy Bowen's business took him out of town the second week in December, and it was not until the twentieth that he returned. He had been East and had ridden home from Buffalo on the same train with Wilma and Edith McDonald. But he didn't know it and neither did they. They could not be expected to recognize him from Ellen's description-that he was horribly good-looking. The dining car conductor was all of that.
Ellen had further written them that he (not the dining-car conductor) was a man of many moods; that sometimes he was just nice and deep, and sometimes he was screamingly funny, and sometimes so serious and silent that she was almost afraid of him.
They were wild to see him and the journey through Ohio and Indiana would not have been half so long in his company. Edith, the athletic, would have revelled in his wit. Wilma would gleefully have fathomed his depths. They would both have been proud to flaunt his looks before the hundreds of their kind aboard the train. Their loss was greater than Billy's, for he, smoking cigarettes as fast as he could light them and playing bridge that would have brought tears of compassion to the shark's eyes, enjoyed the trip, every minute of it.
