THE FACTS

Richards was at a stage corresponding to Billy's twenty-one. Billy was far past it.
" What we better do," said Tommy, "is write down a list of all the people so we won't forget anybody."
" That's the stuff !" said Billy. "I'll name 'em, you write 'em." So Tommy produced a pencil and took dictation on the back of a menu-card.
" First, girl's father, Sam'1 McDonald."
" Samuel McDonald," repeated Tommy. "Maybe you'd better give me some dope on each one, so if we're shy of time, we can both be buying at once."
" All right," said Billy. "First, Sam'1 McDonal'. He's an ol' crab. Raves about cig'rettes."
" Like 'em ?"
" No. Hates 'em."
" Sam'l McDonald, cigarettes," wrote Tommy. "Old crab," he
added.
When the important preliminary arrangement had at last been
completed, the two old college chums went out into the air. "Where do we shop?" asked Tommy.
" Marsh's," said Billy. "'S only place I got charge account." "Maybe we better take a taxi and save time," suggested Tommy. So they waited five minutes for a taxi and were driven to Marsh's,
two blocks away.
" We'll start on the first floor and work up," said Tommy, who
had evidently appointed himself captain.
They found themselves among the jewelry and silverware. "You might get something for the girl here," suggested Tommy. "Don't worry 'bout her," said Billy. "Leave her till las'." "What's the limit on the others?"
" I don't care," said Billy. "Dollar, two dollars, three dollars." "Well, come on," said Tommy. "We got to make it snappy." But Billy hung back.
" Say, ol' boy," he wheedled. "You're my ol'st frien'. Is that
right ?"
" That's right," agreed Tommy.
" Well, say, ol' frien', I'm pretty near all in."
" Go home, then, if you want to. I can pull this all right alone." ," Nothin' doin'. But if I could jus' li'1 nap, ten, fifteen minutes
--you could get couple things here on fir' floor and then come get
me."
" Where? "
" Third floor waitin'-room."
