I want to stay sober to-night. No more call-downs for me in the morning, if I know what I’m about. ” “That’s true, too,” exclaimed Arthur Kinsella. ” Hegglund now called to the round-eyed youth. ” “Oh, I can’t complain,” replied the waiter. “They’re breakin’ all right for me these days. ” “Fine, fine,” replied Higby, cheerfully, studying the bill-of-fare. “An’ you, Griffiths? ” called Hegglund, for, as master-of-ceremonies, delegated by the others to look after the orders and pay the bill and tip the waiter, he was now fulfilling the role.
