made his way toward them.
"Hope I haven't kept you waiting,"
as he greeted Helen. Then in answer
to Warren's query, "Yes, a dry Martini."-
Helen was unresponsive to Mr. El
liot's genial efforts to include her in
the conversation. She had come to
dread his semiannual trip to New
York, because Warren always took
him out and always paid the bill.
How could he accept such hospital hospitality

Of course, he had repeatedly invited

"Alf right, well order then." War Warren

would be twice as much as the table
"Chicken broth Jellied." suggested
Mr. Elliot, "that's cold."
At this Helen dropped her eyes to
hide their resentment.
"All right three chicken' broths,"
ordered Warreif. Then, reading from
the fish list: ."Bass, Fresh Mackerel,
Filet of Sole?"
"Oh, dear, I don't think It's safe to
eat fish," broke in Helen, determined'
"It ought to be all right at a place
like this." Mr. Elliot assured her. "I
had some sole here last summer that
was exceptionally fine."
Countless times Helen had heard
Warren declare that there was no sole
in America, that" It was only flounder,
but now he tactfully refrained from
this favorite comment and promptly
ordered the sole.
Now, Elliot, look over those entrees.
Anything there strikes you?"
Helen was wretchedly twisting the
napkin in her lap: Clams, soup, fish,
and now an entree and probably a
roast! Oh, why hadn't they taken the
dinner? Every moment increased her
fierce resentment of this map. How
could he let Warren order so extrava extravagantly?

skip the entree, but for the roast he
proposed guinea hen -one of the high highest

"How about that, "waiter?" asked
Warren. That guinea hen enough
Helen almost gasped. The guinea
hen was $2.00 surely he would not
order an extra portion! But the
waiter said the hens were fair sized
and, with the rest of the dinner,
should be enough for three.
"Well, bring with it some new' po

Now, let's see your wine card."
By this time Helen was almost in
tears. What would this dinner cost?
- "I'll tell you a good summer wine-
sparkling Chablis." suggested Mr. El Elliot,
liot, Elliot, cheerfully. "Do you like a spar sparkling
kling sparkling wine, Mrs. Curtis?"
"Why, I know so little about wines,"
answered Helen, fearing that sparkling
Chablis was expensive, and wanting to
order Medoc, the cheapest claret on
the list. "I often tell Warren I enjoy
the red ink at those Italian tables
d'hote as much as I do champagne."
But this hint for Inexpensive claret
Everything was exceptionally good
and well served, but Helen, who kept
trying to add up in her mind the
amount of the bill, could not enjoy It.
She had sronoejl the menu against
the mirrored wall beside her and kept
glancing at It to verify the prices.
After the roast Warren ordered en endive

cigars. It was half-past ten before he

It was well over twelve dollars, but
she had a morbid desire to know the

on a long story about India, so that he
might seem absorbed while Warren

Warren was too generous and whole whole-souled

The waiter was coming now. But,
to Helen's astonishment, he placed the
tray by Mr. Elliot not by Warren.
Then she saw that It was not the

some silver! What did it mean?
"See here, what's this?" demanded
Warren, with a puzzled frown.
