THE FACTS

The minute and six more were spent in the purchase of a ticket. And when Billy reached the gate, the 5.25 had gone and the 5.30 was about to chase it.
" Where to?" inquired the gateman.
" Souse Ben'," said Billy.
" Run then," said the gateman.
Billy ran. He ran to the first open vestibule of the Rock Island train, bound for St. Joe, Missouri.
" Where to?" asked a porter.
" Souse," said Billy.
" Ah can see that," said the porter. "But where you goin'?"
The train began to move and Billy, one foot dragging on the station platform, moved with it. The porter dexterously pulled him aboard. And he was allowed to ride to Englewood.
Walking down Van Buren Street, it suddenly occurred to the genial Mr. Richards that he would have to go some himself to get his baggage and catch the 6.30 for the northwest. He thought of it in front of a Van Buren jewelry shop. He stopped and went in.
Three-quarters of an hour later, a messenger-boy delivered a particularly ugly and frankly inexpensive wrist-watch at the MeDonald home. The parcel was addressed to Miss McDonald and the accompanying card read:
" Mr. Bowen: Call me up any night after seven. Calumet 2678. Miss Violet Moore."
There was no good-will toward men in the McDonald home this Christmas. Ellen spent the day in bed and the orders were that she must not be disturbed.
Down-stairs, one person smiled. It was Walter. He smiled in spite of the fact that his father had tossed his brand-new five-dollar poker set into the open fireplace. He smiled in spite of the fact that he was not allowed to leave the house, not even to take Kathryn to church.
" Gee!" he thought, between smiles, "Billy sure had nerve!"
Bob walked round among his relatives seeking to dispel the gloom with a remark that he thought apt and nifty:
" Be grateful," was the remark, " that he had one of his screamingly funny moods before it was too late." '
But no one but Bob seemed to think much of the remark, and no one seemed grateful.

Those are the facts, and it was quite a job to dig them up. But I did it.
