Wanta risk it?" Mary-Frances wished to risk it; so then they went riding along together at 70 miles an hour. Undoubtedly it was more or less dangerous to speed on the highway and in a car with uncertain tires. But -fortune favored them. -In tbe end they arrived safely at Mendel Springs and got out oUhe car near the stone-walled well. While Mary- Frances stood off a bit, and held her handkerchief to ber nose, Earl drank three cups' ot the horrible smelling water. Then- he- rejoined ber, and tbey went together up the steps and across tbe wide veranda and into tbe hotel. * • * C ECILY and Ann, arm 'in arm, were walking up tbe front steps to tbe porch.

Ot course, if you'd been dressed—but la your bathrobe! I telephoned the hospitals. They acted as if they'd never beard of such a thing as an accident. Goodness!

Just go. I'll tell them when tbey come home. They'll fuss, but I don't care. Cissy, after tbe past hour it would take more than a scene to shake me. Now that you are alive and happy, nothing else seems to matter. Really it doesn't. 3ome, let's go in. No one's at borne. Not even Mary-Frances." In the lower hall Cecily Bald, 'Angel, angel, angel Ann!" In tbe upper hall she eaid, "And I was afraid to tell you! Then yX>u don't rthink that I'm frighMully selfish and— all that? You know, you understand that I'm not 'really letting you down?" 'Cissy dear! Ot course I don't —I mean, I do— I mean whatever I do mean, I'm Just glad— tbftt's all.

'I'HEY started for the door and •*• arrived there at the same time, and there was a small tussle. Cecily said, "You get the bags, angel, and I'll put on the kettle. 1 won't have ou running up and down stairs. waiting on me. The suitcase la in he east room closet, I think. My bag is in my closet." "Cissy! I've had an awful bought. It isn't. Mary-Frances went to Ermlntrudo's to spend the night, and I'm sure she has taken your -bag. She always does." "But I must ; have it. I can't, 1 losltively can't take that old wood- in brush and black comb of mine— nor any of my toilet tilings—they're disgraceful." "Don't worry. I'll telephone to ler right away to bring it home. You'd wont to tell her goodby—" "Of course. I'll call her while I'm downstairs. You get the suitcase, dear. But don't fill It with your things. I'm not going to take all your things." Ann found tbe suitcase and sighed because of its scratches and dents and rough spots. She opened the bureau drawers in the east room and tossed through their scented contents. The bureau in tbe east room bad served as her bope chest. So many ot the things she had thought pretty were odd and old-fashioned now. Imagine anyone's wearing a step-in the size of this thing. It was large enough for* Rosalie. Here (was that sweet changeable taffeta breakfast coat that Nella bad given her. Cissy must take It. She wouldn't? Well, it could be tucked in when Cissy wasn't watching. A little pile ot extra bandkercbiets. These fancy garters—" Cecily, kettle in band, came to the door and said, "The line is busy. I've tried and tried. Have you looked in my closet? Perhaps she didn't take it," and rushed away. • It was sot in the closet. Ann went downstairs to tbe telephone and listened to tbe small quick thuds tbat informed ber Ermin- trude was talking to a friend. She waited (or a few minutes, and dialed tbe number again, and then, again, but the thuds continued; so she went to the foot of tbe stairs and called to Cecily: "I'll-run over to tbe Hills' an4 get ber. It's only a few blocks, and it will be easier than fussing at this phone, and quicker. I'll hurry." Cecily answered, "Well—Jl ?«» don't mind.
