Why, the woman he was married to for twenty years, Lenie Goldstone, never even seen a skirt-dance. I remember once he brought her to New York and then wouldn't let her see a cabaret show.

Occasionally, a prideful and shirt-sleeved landed proprietor wielded his own hose, flushing the parched sidewalk or shooting spray against hot bricks that drank in thirstily. As Mrs. Goldstone rocked she smiled, tilting herself backward off the balls of her feet. The years had cropped out in her suddenly, surprisingly, and with a great deal of geniality.

Into it with a second and more tremulous sigh sank Miss Goldstone, her lips lifted in the smile that had been kissed. When Mr. Goldstone slept, every alternate breath started with a rumble somewhere down in the depths of him and, drawn up like a chain from a well, petered out into a thin whistle before the next descent.

The young figure sprang around the porch pillar. "Mamma Hat! Honey, you didn't wait up for me?" Mr. Kessler came forward, goggles pushed up above his cap-visor. "Well, I'm hanged! What did you think that I was kidnapping the kid?"
