NOW GO ON WITH THE STORY CHAPTER X TIER eyes went past the orchid ami-black bathtub In the win dow to tho wide sunlit street be yond. When Mr. Redfern had con coivcd tho idea of lowering his reni by moving from tho west side o' tho rivor to this small place on the east side ho nil said that It would bo much pleasanter for Miss Fen wick. 7'hey were closer to the street, here, and she could look out of the window and watch the peo pie passing and tho traffic all day long. Ho had meant it kindly. He know, as Ann knew, how light her duties were: a few letters and bills to bo sent, a few items to be posted In the books, an occasional telephone call to answer, pay rolls to be made out on Saturdays, and nothing more to bo doi.o except for a scurrying day or two around the first of each month. Since Mr. Redfern managed to keep his ailing business alive only by constant personal ministrations, Ann was alone most of the time In the office. She read library books: novels of the lighter, neatly mediocre sort; fictionized biography, or n newly popular philosophy; poetry. sometimes, if the bindings were clean and pretty, though poetry often made her sad. She wrote letters lo the few people she knew who did not live in Portland— let ters so long that the recipients felt they required a "real letter" in answer (Ann Fenwick writes such dandy letters!) and so, often, never answered them at all. She sewed a little, but guiltily— it didn't look well to be sewing in an office. During tho season she went to a nearby market and bought peas and strins beans and prepared them suiTf'plitiously, and with newspapers ready to hand for coverings. to carry home ready to be cooked for the evening meal. Once, for a few happy months she had attempted short-story writ- In;;; but tho following flood of fat envelopes bearing rejections had drowned her courage, or her con and dissolved her ambitions No harm In trying lo plc.lt up De Armounl thought. He lighted another cigaret and strolled across he street. essons, the cross-word puzzles. Her defense had been that they killed ime. It was hard for Phil to understand why a person who had othing to do all day but kill time hould so often complain of weariness In the evening; and yet, un- uuhtedly, David too was tired after he encounter with Goliath. A MESSENGER boy riding along out there turned his bicycle sharply and dismounted at the curb. Ann's breath caught, but only for the moment it took the boy to discover the number next door. Phil sometimes had sent flowers tc her at the office. Phil, only last year, had said that he hadn't nerve to telephone to her after the way he had acted, and had sent a long let- side the evening he had left her house at 10 o'clock and telephoned from a drug store 20 minutes later. Nothing had been wrong that evening; he had wished to hear her .voice again, to be certain that she Seally was. Phil's ijurllrvesB. last evening did not count for much beside the time she had scalded her hands, and Phil had gone mad, and telephoned to a doctor, and declared that he could not live in a world where Ann could be hurt. The surliness and the failure to call her, both together, grew small, put beside those two weeks when she had been ill in bed and a box of flowers with a package of note to be read every half hour all da had arrived each morning—an then, Phil's cheek wet against her because he was so happy the firs afternoon she was allowed to com She looked again at the clock Five o'clock. Suppose ho did no telephone at all? Suppose she wen liome, and began to wait there fo ils message, and It didn't come Suppose she waited all evening— and all tomorrow, and all tomorro evening? Suppose she were to begin now, at five o'clock on the fift lay of April, to wait all her lif ong for a message from Phil tha never ",ame? The telephone bell rang. Sh snatched tho receiver and pausei o moisten her lips before sh spoke. "Hello." "Ann, angel . . ."

A block away, by the window of Peggy-Louise's Beauty Shpppc, stood the fat little kid who had been in the restaurant last night,-and. with her was the pretty girl friend. Earl had no Interest in; the fat little kid, though he had gathered from her manner In,the restaurant that she would probably stand for » pick-up.

At least, Mary-Frances's cheeks were hot, and her hands were cold; her knees were rickety; her thraat had cramped, and her stomach' was Impoverished and wavering. "You can't," said Ermintrude, In a sort of sick squeal. "You Just positively can't!" It is to be feared that the urgent need of any ally, rather than any swift surge of affection, caused Mary-Frances to swerve closer to Ermintrude and put a tightening arm about her waist. "Darling," she murmured, "I got to. I Just got to. Don't you realize, can't you understand that if I were cruel to him now, and proved to be nothing but a mere flckle coquette and everything, two lives would be ruined?" "Maybe not," urged Ermintrude, distractedly optimistic, "maybe It might just turn out to be one ot these terrible mistakes afterwards, anyway. Let's—let's run or something. Oh, please!
