But thnt vrn»n'l all.... « * * A MY half whispered thai Father's •^ kindness had given her courage to beg for another favor, a very great, a very unusual favor. Perhaps it was loo much to ask. Only for her mother's sake . . . i Briefly, Amy wanted Father not only to be n pallbearer for her brother, but also to round up six of Otsego's leading professional and bvisiness men, whom Amy named, as the other pallbearers. ' Father was furious. *** l "I'm surprised you left out the mayor." he said nnstiiy. f "Oil, I saw Mayor Wallace this afternoon," Amy admitted a little indiscreetly. "He was so kind.'' ( Father was immediately suspicious. Our mayor, Mr. Wallace, was a big, hearty man with a hearty manner. He was famous for never saying no to a constituent, no matter how absurd the request, but then he would turn the matter over to his secretary to settle as best she could. Father. finally got it out of Amy that Mayor Wallace with actual tears in his eyes had agreed to m?t as a pallbearer for Hubert, though later his secretary telephoned that unfortunately the mayor had found out he was tied up the afternoon of the funeral on a city matter with Judge Olm- stcad and a number of others. Onless Miss Tolliver could induce the 1 judge and his friends to act as pallbearers the mayor would have to keep his prior engagement with them. * * * ,*.- '.M*-. T>Y this time most ot Amy's charm had worn off. Father was now extremely anxious to get rid of her. But before she would go, he had to promise her that he would think over her request and telephone her next day. He had already made up his mind to leave Otsego early the next morning and stay away until Hubert Tolliver was under six feet of ground. : But as Father wound the clock and banked the fire he told him- seif that he deserved another drink. As he sipped the whisky it suddenly occurred to him that it would be enormously funny to call Pete Wallace's bluff and force him to fall in with Miss Amy's snobbish and egregious plans for a bang-up funeral for the obscure and erring Hubert Tolliver. Either the whisky had made Father extremely persuasive, or the mayor's friends were itching to pay him bad: in his own coin. At any rate, before Father slept that, night he had telephoned Dr. Sutcr, our leading physician; Mr. Winthrop and Mr. Allis, the presidents of our two banks; old Mr. Burgess, our one millionaire; and my cousin Sam Forbes and his cousin Nelson Forbes, owners of large wholesale businesses; and somehow or other he convinced them ( tbut this was the opportunity of a lifetime to play a joke on Pete Wallace. The seven conspirators lunched together the next day at the Arlington Club and apparently had an uproarious time. Afterward they went in a body to Taylor's greenhouse and ordered a huge pillow of red and white carnations, tied with a blue ribbon streamer with "The Mayor" printed on it in gold loiters. The pillow was charged to Mr. Wallace. The joke seemed just as good the next afternoon when the seven Listen. PriSc'ffffl k/ftat's leaving Pop's //able to come along an' fall a// Down the aisle came two young girls who looked like two angels. Their eyes were downcast; tears trembled on their Ions lashes. At' the same time, they were not so upset as not to be able to keep in perfect step hi exact time to the music. , solemn citizens descended on the mayor in his office and informed 'lim that Mr. Fable, our under- Laker, was waiting for him at the Congregational church. The mayor begged, threatened, coaxed, refused to budge from his chair. He hadn't a chance. TpIGHT or ten years before, when Mr. Burgess' little granddaughter had died, Mr. Fable had produced almost overnight a small, chaste white hearse and two white horses with white plumes. Naturally enough the white hearse, the white horses, had been reserved ever since for the funerals of innocent little children or very young girls. Perhaps in his mother's eyes Hubert Tolliver was still a child and still innocent. At any rate she had chosen for his last journey the white hearse and a white coffin. While flowers covered the coffin. And on top of the hearse, among the plumes, was the mayor's pillow pf red and white carnations, with its gay blue and gold streamer, which all the world could and did read. The mayor, forgetting his dignity, forgetting his role as master of ceremonies, forgetting the solemnity of the occasion, began swearing viciously under his breath. Old Mr. Burgess had to shut him tip. Father said he never knew how they got the coffin out of the hearse and down the aisle. But while he was in the vestibule Pete Martin whispered to him that Nettie Aldous had found out about the white hearse just an hour before and started telephoning. No one quite believed it, but no one dared to- stay at home and miss the show. Father claims that he began to feel ashamed of himself right then and there. _ ^^ * * * WHEN the coffin was at last on its trestle before the altar and the pallbearers about to-take their seats, Father heard a rustle and bustle and saw every head in the packed church suddenly turn as if on a pivot and face the door. Mrs. Tolliver, leaning on Amy's arm, was halfway down the aisle. Both were swathed in long black veils. Mr. Lafe Ingram and Airs. Ingram and one or two neighbors were just behind them. But no one was looking at Mrs. Tolliver; they were staring at the back of the church. Father stared as hard as anyone else. For down the aisle came two young girls who, to Father's eyes, looked like two angels. They were in black and carried white prayer-books. Instead of hideous concealing veils they wore fetching little velvet bonnets, with white niching outlining their seraphic faces and white bows tied under their chins. They were practically the same size and looked almost exactly alike. Their eyes were downcast; tears trembled on thoir long lashes. At the same time they were not so upset as not to be able to keep in perfect step in exact time to the music. After a moment's amazement Father realized that he was not gazing goggled-eyed on "a vision from on high, but on the two youngest Tolliver girls, the twins Florabelle and Annabelle. Father wrote: "In my fifty years I have had the good fortune to see and admire a goodly number of exceedingly pretty and a few beautiful women. With due respect to Homer, I stick to it that if Helen of Troy had walked behind the two youngest Tollivers I wouldn't have thrown her a glance." Father's letter went on: "Well, that's the story. The Tolliver family wanted a show, and in a weak moment I agreed to help them, in my feeble way, to pull it off. It turned out to be quite a show. I am not, however, in any way proud of my share in it." The letter concluded: "I solemnly swear that this is a true if not entirely unprejudiced account of what is now known as the Tolliver girls' debut into Otsego society."

The Reserve Board indicated cautiously that-if hiRh or rising prices keep business receipts up, the relatively large portion going for profit —as against the portion going 1 for wages—might have repercussions in the present high level of employment. Noting that business has comparatively large liquid assets—cash and government securities—the board's May bulletin said: "In the case of a recession . .•. ihe Increased business liquidity may have the effect of reducing the need for forced liquidation and of delaying businesses, in making the price cuts, cost reductions and other readjustments that generally accompany rece&ions."
