ROUND UP

"I wouldn't mind," said Tommy.
" South Bend's only a two-hour run. Where did you think it was? Europe ? "
" I don't care where it is. The question is, what's the next train after one-forty?"
" Maybe you think I don't know," said Billy. He called the gentleman with the apron. "What do you know about this, Charley ? Here's an old pal of mine who thinks I don't know the time. '~ table to South Bend."
" He's mistaken, isn't he?" said Charley. -
" Is he mistaken? Say, Charley, if you knew as much as I do ~ about the time-table to South Bend, you wouldn't be here."
" No, sir," said Charley. "I'd be an announcer over in the station."
" There!" said Billy triumphantly. "How's that, Tommy? Do I know the time-table or don't I?"
" I guess you do," said Tommy. "But I domt think you ought to have secrets from an old friend."
" There's no secrets about it, Charley."
" My name is Tommy," corrected his friend.
" I know that. I know your name as well as my own, better'n !
my own. I know your name as well as I know the time-table."
" If you'd just tell me the time of that train, we'd all be better off."
" I'll tell you, Tommy. I wouldn't hold out anything on you, old boy. It's five twenty-five."
" You're sure?"
" Sure! Say, I've taken it a hundred times if I've taken it once."
"All right," said Tommy. "That fixes it. We'll go in and have
lunch and be through by half-past one. That'll give you four hours .
to do your shopping, get to your office and make your train." "Where you going while I shop?"
" Don't bother about me."
" You go along with me." "Nothing doing."
" Yes, you do." "No, I don't."
But this argument was won by Mr. Bowen. At ten minutes of three, when they at last called for the check, Mr. Richards looked on the shopping expedition in an entirely different light. Two hours before, it had not appealed to him at all. Now he could think of nothing that would afford more real entertainment. Mr.
