Cissy never has let me nor anyone down. You've no right" . Phil, hat In hand, was making for the-door. Ann tagged after him and went on: "Suppose she does fall In love. Suppose she does get engaged to that nice boy. Isn't that her affair? You and I have been engaged for eight years." UjilTes, I know that I don't need ; to b? told," said Phil on the porch ; to- Aon in the doorway. "But Cissy isn't like you. Her man will come K prsJ with her."

It isn't my fault—" Phil had turned and was going. Phil had gone! Gone? Right off like that without kissing her good night? Phil had gone. If be had purposely omitted the kiss it wouldn't matter so much. But she feared, she seriously feared, that he had simply walked away and forgotten all about it • • • • T>ARRY, driving and intent on the •*•* polished black pavements ahead, did not see Philip standing back from the corner, puffing 'at his pipe and waiting for the street car. .But Philip saw him and felt a small satisfaction because Barry, too, had left the Fenwick's house early. "Suppose," Philip went on thinking, as he watched the small red light dim into the darkness, "that I'd hailed him. and cadged a ride home, and said to him on the way, 'Don't fall in love with Cecily Fenwick. Don't ever go there again. You can stop now. Later you may be unable to stop. There's no use In falling In love with a Fenwick girl. You start out brave and gay and find yourself on a treadmill. You never arrive anywhere. Stop short tonight and forget it. I wish someone had warned me—eight years ago.' Fat lot of thanks Me- Keel would give me—now. Pity, though. He is young—some fool ideals, of course—but on the whole, Intelligent. He had known . the Bronte quotation: 'I have seen the sea and York Cathedral.' Stop short tonight and forget it Well—why not? What was the epigram? 'It advice Is good, why give it away?' Ah, the bunk! But—wby not? Rot! Stop short and forget it." He knocked his pipe out against a tree in the parking, and stepped forward to hail the coming street car. • • • /CECILY tapped on Ann's door and ^ opened It. Ann was standing in front of her bureau, her fingers fly- Ing about through the dark curling coils of her hair (it was a nuisance, and heavy, and hard to find hats for, but Phil insisted that she should not cut it), pulling~out the hairpins. "Ann, angel," Cecily said, "dinner was grand. Thank you a million times." Ann did not turn. "Yes," she said. "I thought it seemed very good—all but the chowder." "Everything wag gaod," said Co- clly, and" came In and closed the doof, She had to talk. "Ydti lifted him, didn't you, Ann? Old th« con- veraatloa. and the evening, AifiU- so on, seem all right to you? Wasn't it slick that Grand and Rosalie both went to sleep?" ';••:; Ann's fingers kept oil hunting hairpins. "Yes, 1 liked him. 1 thought things seemed alt tight. What made him leave so early f" "Ha Is sort of shy. Phil's leayihg and all . . . I'd BO much rather have him shy than—than a6t. You really did like him, didn't you, Ann? He Is good-looking, don't you think?" "Of course," said Ann. "You Ilk* him a lot, don't you, Cissy?" Cecily nodded. "Urn-hum. . I seem to." "And he likes you a lot?" "Ann, I don't know. I don't know at all. Sometimes I think he does, and then I think he doesn't. He was queer when we first dame In this evening—that may hay* been my fault. But later he was lovely, and just now In the hall he held on to both my bands and kept holding them while he thankefi m« for having him here. Still, he didn't say a word about ewr" seeing me again, or telephoning, or—anything." • Ann experimented with a smile In the mirror. "For that, matter, Phil didn't say anything about teeing me again,'either." > , "Ann," Cecily's voice was. tense, "how can you bear it? The'happi- ness of the certainty, I mean; To love Phil, as you do, and to knoit positively that he lovqs you, and that you'll see him tomorrow and the next day—all that It seems to me I. just couldn't endure being BO happy." . . i Ann was on '• her 'way to th» clothes closet. She stopped for an instant to rumple the shining brown of Cecily's boyish bob, but she did not answer her question until tht was inside the closet "It grows on one," she said from there, "that ability to endure happiness."

PARIS, Ark.—(/P)—The slayer of Constable Mont Cre?kmore was believed Wednesday to have escaped from his mountain hiding place while scores of possemen tramped through the woods hunting him Tuesday night. The man, a stranger here, shot Creekmore Tuesday when he and ;.n- cther officer halted four men in a car, and was thought to have taken refuge in a cave but he could not be found'. Officers believe the slayer, known only by the name of Wilson, was wounded in the hand or arm by Crek- more after he was shot. The three other men in the cair said the man was a stranger to them and could offer no reason for his opening fire on Creekmore. Sheriff Albert Maxey of Crawford county left with a posse for Alma to search the section after receiving a report a suspect left a freight train there Wednesday morning.
