STEWART XIX ir FHEy heard George coming in from the back, and then his bulky form filled the doorway. He held up a pipe wrench in one hand, and was wearing his usual costume of carpenter's overalls, rather dirty and well stained with paint smears. He could have used new overalls every day, but apparently he felt more comfortable in ones that were well broken in. "Hi, George," said Ezra, who usually managed to say the first word. "G'morning, George," said Ish. "Morning, Ish. . . . Morning, Ezra." "Say, George," said Ish. "No water over at Jean's or at our place this morning. How about here?" "None here, either," said George. "Well," said Ish, "what do you make of it?"George hesitated, working his mouth and lips, as if he were chewing the end of an imaginary cigar. "Well, if she's off over there too, I guess there's no use looking any more for some block in my pipes around here, way I was. I guess she's broke' or clogged up some- wheres on the main pipe that comes to all these houses." Ish caught a sidelong glance from E'/.ra, and a ghost of a smile on his fncc as much as to say that after all any of them might have figured that out. "I guess you must be. right, -George," Ish said. "But what nre I we going to do about it?" Gcorgs shifted the imaginary [cigar again, and then spoke: "Well, t Uwd bf o(!ong*"i«nl wilt t, IK Distributed kj NEA Strrkc, IK. I dunno." Here they had been for 21 years merely using water that continued to flow, and yet they had never given any real consideration to where the water came from. It had been a gift from the past, as free as air, like the cans of beans and bottles of catsup that could be had just by walking into a store and taking them from the shelves. "This water must come from the old city water system, somewhere," Ish said. "Must have corne, I mean. The old pipes are still there. I think the best thing for us to do would be to go up to the reservoir and see whether there is any water in that." r PHEY went out and began calling the dogs, and getting ready to harness up the teams to the wagons. The reservoir was only a mile away, but George suffered from the stiffness of age in his legs. Getting the dogs together and making ready always took time and Ish regretted that horse-taming had come to be a lost art. Actually, the dogs were in many ways more convenient because they demanded little care, and fed on the less choice cuts of the cnt- tle which could be killed easily in the surrounding country. They left the dog learns at the foot of the final slope, and climbed up along the old path, breaking their way through thick blackberry bushes. They stood on the edge of the reservoir, and looked across its empty expanse. There was a little skim of water in two or three low spots, but the outlet-pipe stood up into the air. They took n long look, and it was'Ezra who spoke at hisl: "That's that!" just at this point, a distinction between the older generation nnd the younger began to-show itself. Ish. in spite of having been a geographer, could not h;ive told off-hnnd where there was a single spring or dependable stream in the neighborhood, although he could still locate positions by names of streets and intersections. The youngsters, on the other hand, could quickly tell him where there was a stream of running water at this season of the year, or where there would be pools of water, or where there were springs. They could not locate these places by reference to streets, but they could go to them without hesitation. Ish suddenly found himself being instructed by his own son Walt, who assured him that at this season of. year there would be running water in a little gully which Ish had scarcely ever noticed because it flowed through under San Lupo Drive by means of a storrn drain. Before long, the original consternation changed to. a kind ol warm excitement. Some of the youngsters were sent off with the dog teams and some five-gallon cans to bring back water from the nearest spring. The older ones began to dig holes vigorously, and to set up outhouses. The enthusiasm lasted for several hours, and resulted in a noticeable amount of work. By noon there was widespread complaint about blisters and weariness. When they separated for lunch, Ish became aware that no one was coming back for work. * * * T ITTLE Joey came, and stood u nervously for a moment near him. "Don't we want to go out and work some n»re?" he asked. "No, Joey. Not this afternoon." Joey continued balancing, letting his gaze wander around the room and then come back to his father. . "Go along, Joey," said Ish gently. "Eveo'tning's fine! We'll have the lesson at the regular time." Joey wont off, but Ish was touched, even if a little humiliated, by the wordless sympathy which his youngest son was offering. Joey scarcely could understand the larger issues, but his quick mind had sensed that his father was unhappy, even though there had been no argument between him nnd Hit others. Yes, Joey was the one!
