MERYS

is the better part of valour and that keeping one's mouth shut is probably the safest course in the long run, a well-stocked bar and that peculiar air of casual bonhomie which some places of this sort are lucky enough to acquire.
The proprietor was Irish Italian, which is a good enough mixture for anybody. He was plump, benevolent and he wore an expression of placid goodhumour on his face which seemed to indicate that he was everybody's friend and could never possibly do harm to anyone-well, not much. In any event, he hoped that was what the expression indicated.
There were also two or three ladies of varying coiffure, bulk and temperament, who were always to be found on the club premises. Pat Manuello, the proprietor, described them as "my charming 'ostesses." And he was nearly right. They could be charming; also, if occasion demanded, slightly tough.
O'Day checked his hat in the cloak-room; made a wise-crack at the dark-haired Italian girl behind the counter; went into the small, softly-lighted bar at the end of the dance floor just behind the orchestra platform.
O'Shaughnessy, the bar tender, immaculate in his white jacket, was leaning up against the wall behind the bar, stifling a yawn. He thought that it was too late for him to be out of bed and too early for there to be much business, because most of the Pimento business came between one and three o'clock in the morning-why, I can't tell you; neither could he.
O'Day ordered a large whisky and soda.
O'Shaughnessy said: "We haven't seen you for a time, Mr. O'Day. Maybe you've been busy."
