"Why, it's Mom Baumer," he .'said. "Hiya, Mom?" "Hiya, pal," I said. 1 ! ."Fill her v trp." "Must be five years since I seen you," he said. "All of that," I said. ^You've got a good memory." "Oh, nobody ever forgets you, .Mom," he said. I guess that's right, too. I'm a sort of institution on the roads. He took a gander at my trailer. "How's the feed trade?^i' 'he iesked, being polite. "While he was polishing" the ..Windshield I said, "What's this I hear about Tambay Plantation?" "It's right," he said. "Life •Jamona.the ruins.. Poor relation." ', "What sort?" "Yankee., Keeps herself to her- "gelf." "Would she take in a tourist," do fou reckon?" "Would the "White House? "I he id. "Tambay's still Tan.bay." "Okay, pal," I said. "But that's Where I bunk tonight. I've got a particular reason for wanting to pleep there tonight." _ Coming into Tambay Plantation I rolled along quietly. Opposite ,the mansion I dropped the trailer. '. Before turning in at the big entrance, I switched off my lights. - ,What with the rain and the wind, there wasn't much danger of my • being heard before I was ready. I got out of the car and hung a gadget of mine that had been a good old standby many a time when I wanted a lodging, on the gatepost. Through the untended shrubbery between the live oaks I could , make out Tambay Mansion. It was like a tired old lady, tired of ev-. .erything, even of pride, but with ' the everlasting guts to keep her chin up against all comers, no matter how shabby and sad and poor she might be. Well, I was feeling a little like that myself, i after 10 years on the road. I could - use some rest. * * » ' T KNOCKED on the door; a good, 1 •*• hard, honest knock. The light , moved and the door opened. "Who is it?" I was all set for a scrawny old- maid type with slit-eyes and a New England-yellow skin. This wasn't it, at all. The voice didn't • have a poor relation whine, either. • "Could I get a room?" I said. 'Wo," she said. "You're in the wrong place." "Tourists Accommodated," I ; , said. "Going to make a liar out of, your sign?" She got an umbrella and we sloshed through the long grass. I switched my pocket flash onto the place where I'd done my picture- hanging. "What about it?" I said. Instead of answering, she put ' up a hand and felt the woodwork back of my sign. Naturally, it hadn't had time to get wet. Nobody's fool, that gal. "Do you get away with it often?" she asked. "More often than you might thJnk," I told her. I guessed that maybe she didn't have entire confidence in me. So I put the spotlight on myself. "Mom Baumer," I said. "Fat and 50; wet and tired." She kind of hesitated. "There's only the north room furnished,' she said. "It leaks." "So does this sky," I said. "I don't know," she said to herself. "Why do you pick on Tam- faay?" she gsked. "It's a long story," I said. "I'd do a lot better by it in the morning." "I'm Jane Ann Judson," she said. That north room would sure have been a risk for anyone in weak health. Pots and pans did their best to take care of the drib- fales. The bed was pretty clammy, Copyright, 1941. NEA Service Inc. I knocked on the door; a good, hard, honest knock., light moved and the door opened. " Thes Could I get a room?" 1 said.; ind. I spent some active moments playing tag with one of those slip- jery silk spreads that ought to be n jail for abandonment. But a joocl conscience is better than a hot of dope, and I was still dead o the world when some high- ilass breakfast smells woke me up with a twitching nose. * * * f THOUGHT back to my first L sight of Tambay Plantation 25 fears ago. I wasn't on my own at :hat time. I was with a carny ;how. Acrobatics, an animal turn, and a touch of parlor magic on :he side. We pitched by the ;treamside at Tambay Bend, and when I sneaked out after the show and saw the old mansion, with all :he lights going and the saddle horses hitched to the big trees, and heard the music and the soft, young southern voices, I got a yen for it that never died .out. You wouldn't expect the proprietress of a traveling nosebag to be romantic. O. K. I'm as God and the roads have made me. Years later, I hear that all the Mauries of Tambay are dead, and their friends and kin that kept the place warm and happy with love, are scattered or broke. But it would always be the old Tambay for me. Jane Ann Judson was already at the table when I got down. In the morning light she looked younger than I'd figured her. Two long, thin, darky girls that I spotted for Gullahs from the islands as soon as I heard their talk were busy about the breakfast. "Good morning," Jane Ann Judson said. "How did you make out?" "Swell," I told her. ' "I had the night of my life." '•Was it as bad as that?" "No; I mean it," I said. "You wondered why I picked on Tam- bay. Remember about the little girl in the story that wanted to sleep in the queen's chamber just once, even if she got her head cut off for it? Well, that's me and Tambay. After I first saw it, and that was before you were born, I used to have a dream. I'd got rich, and I'd bought Tarnbay, and I could see myself sitting in the drawing room in a dark red salin gown with a brooch, and lifting a finger to an old, silver-whiskered darky, and saying in a cultured voice, 'You may now fetch the juleps, Erastus.' Do you wonder I got a kick out of last night?" "You couldn't sit in the drawing room now," she said with a sort of sigh in her throat. "No?" I said. "Nothing to sit on. It's all been' sold to the antique hunters. Before I got here," "The place wouldn't be for sale,' maybe?" "Not if I can help it." Her face went quiet and secret. There were things back of the look that she didn't want to think about. "Mind if I snoop around a lit". tie?" "Go anywhere you like." • After breakfast she took her fly-rod and went down to Tam- bay Bend to get a mess of fish for dinner, leaving me with the two Gullahs. I've always modeled my life on the fella that made a big success minding his own business. What I mean to say, I never ask questions except, of course, when I want to find out something. Because what other way is there? I went to work on Ollie and Nollie. "How long have you girls been here?" "Us? We been livin' heah sence Mist' Clement Maurie's time." "With Miss Judson?" "Oh, no'm! Miss Jane Ann, she on'y been heah a little piece. She let us stay on cause we ain" got no othah place to res'. An" she gotta have sumbuddy." "Hasn't she got any folks?" "No'm. Her pa an' ma was killed in a accident. I don' reckon she had no othah kin. Her ma was a Maurie. That's how-come she heired Tambay," Well, I looked the place over and located a sweet spot for my trade, between road and river, a high jut of land with nice trees. So I towed the trailer in and was ready for Miss Jane Ann when she came back. .(To Pe Continued) WASH TUBBS HI, HO! ALWAYS THOUOHT I't> BE IN THE AIR Mt?CB M CASE. OF WAR, AMD WERE.
