ROUND UP

"Ogden Avenue," he said to himself.
Aunt Louise was telling about her experiences and Aunt Harriet's among the heathen of Peoria Street.
" You never would dream there were such people!" said she.
" I suppose most of them are foreign born," supposed her brother, who was Mr. McDonald.
" Practically all of them," said Aunt Louise.
Billy wanted to ask her whether she had ever missionaried among the Indians. He thought possibly an attempt to scalp her had failed by a narrow margin.
Between courses Edith worked hard to draw out his predicated comicality and Wilma worked as hard to make him sound his low notes. Their labors were in vain. He was not sleepy enough to be deep, and he was fourteen highballs shy of comedy.
In disgust, perhaps, at her failure to be amused, the major portion of the misdeal capsized her cocoa just before the close of the meal and drew a frown from her father, whom she could have thrown in ten minutes, straight falls, any style.

" Oh," was Billy's fresh comment, and it brought forth a fresh supply of giggles from Kathryn.
Ellen had already been made aware of Biliy's disgusting plans. He had to catch a night train for St. Louis, and he would be there all day to-morrow, and he'd be back Friday, but he wouldn't have time to see her, and he'd surely call her up.
