U2—A GOOD STORY

Two old friends are seated opposite one another at a small
antique table, cheered by a bottle of cliampagne which they are
apparently emptying with great relish. One of tliem is relating
a humorous tale with gusto, and the point of the story is ap-
parently just reached. It is evidently a studio interior, for the
wall at the back is covered with a collection of weapons, pictures,
costumes and sketches.
