ROUND UP

"Go ahead. But wait a minute. Give me some of your carda. And will I have any trouble charging things?" "Not a bit. Tell 'em you're me."
It was thus that Tommy Richards was left alone in a large store, with Billy Bowen's charge account, Billy Bowen's list, and Billy Bowen's cards.
He glanced at the list.
" `Samuel McDonald, cigarettes. Old crab,"' he read. He approached a floor-walker.
" Say, old pal," he said. "I'm doing some shopping and I'm in a big hurry. Where'd I find something for an old cigarette fiend?"
" Cigarette-cases, two aisles down and an aisle to your left," said Old Pal.
Tommy raised the limit on the cigarette-case he picked out for Samuel McDonald. It was $3.75.
" I'll cut down somewhere else," he thought. "The father-in-law ought to be favored a little."
" Charge," he said in response to a query. "William Bowen, Bowen and Company, 18 South La Salle. And here's a card for it. That go out to-night sure?"
He looked again at the list.
" Mrs. Samuel McDonald, bridge bug. Miss Harriet McDonaid, reverse English. Miss Louise McDonald, thin hair. Miss Mary Carey, church stuff. Bob and Wife, `The Man Who Married a Dumb Wife' and gets mysteriously jealous. Walter McDonald, real kid. Edith, fat lady. Wilma, a splinter."
He consulted Old Pal once more. Old Pal's advice was to go to the third floor and look over the books. The advice proved sound. On the third floor Tommy found for Mother "The First Principles of Auction Bridge," and for Aunt Harriet an English grammar. He also bumped into a counter laden with hymnals, chant books, and Books of Common Prayer. ,
" Aunt Mary !" he exclaimed. And to the clerk: "How much are your medium prayer-books?"
" What denomination?" asked the clerk, whose name was Freda Swanson.
" One or two dollars," said Tommy.
" What church, I mean?" inquired Freda.
" How would I know?" said Tommy. "Are there different books for different churches?"
" Sure. Catholic, Presbyterian, Episcopal, Lutheran-" "Let's see. McDonald, Carey, How much are the Catholic ones?"
