GOOD NIGHT His door is closed and locked, the keyhangs swinging, still clinking; the shower drips in lessening rhythm and wet towels huddle 'neath the spattered wash stand. Whoooooeee go the toy boats on the icy river. The soft warm blankets have been rolled back and the bed lamp sheds mellow yellow invitation to crawl in and turn'round and 'round and sleep. An impudent wind from over the lakes harries him, hurries him, and he disappears under billows of blue wool and white. The dayis done. The lamp is out. The wind sings its midnight song. He smiles and sleeps-and goes skirr ing to the other side of the moon, to the orange groves of Seville, or, he sits again in strange offices where that day he had fought his happy fights. And care stops at his door -and listens-and gazes wistfullythrough the key hole. What a wonderful sleep! Good night. See you soon? THE BOOK-CADILLAC HOTEL Carl M.
