That would indeed lie ft fitting climax for this wretched afternoon. Wax It not Emily Mayhew with whom Hemingway bad epeut the most of bis time, nt the Itli bardsou danee?

Hut the doctor says you are all right," she hurried on. "You only struck your head a tiny bit. You will be all right tomorrow." "Whero uní 1?" asked the girl won deringly. She could see tho pretty room wherein she lay. Whose could It be? "Why, at the Mayhews'," responded Mrs. Enrwell.
