TT now?" Juddy asked. "Show business." I said. "She's all right. We don't see each other much. There's reasons. Skip Caj-nie." She nodded. I went on, "After Baumer eloped I carried on awhile with the animal act. One of the cats went batty on me and I got fed up with the smell of the trained seal. Then an old yen for cooking that I'd always had hit me again. All of which adds up to the Feederia." Juddy sort of sighed. "There's things to be said lor a camp, too," I said. "Instead of going along with the big show you watch it roll right up to your door, I've had people die and. get born right in'the'shadow'of'• the grubwagon, and I've seen h?te and love and the meeting of sweethearts and the break-up of families, the whole human show. From the great deep to the great deep they go, and every now and then you see something that makes life look bigger. Excuse me waxing eloquent on you, pal." "I like it," she said. "Well, if you think I'm the kind of aunt you can use, I'm your aunt," I said. "What I don't quite get," I told her, "is this yen of yours for Tambay. You never saw it till a few months ago, did you?" After a long pause she said: "Yes. I was here when I was a child. It's the only place I've known that had any permanency for me. You see, Mom, my life was—well, perpetual motion. How my parents ever found time to have me, I don't know. So Tam- bay, where I could stay put, was heaven to me. I didn't cry easily when I was little, but I cried for a day and a night when I had to leave. Other things have happened to me since; nothing ever pressed on my heart quite like that." * * » T OREN OLIVER wasn't Juddy's only worry about Tambay. Sheriff Holllster Mowry was now one of our regular customers. He'd drop in for lunch, sometimes for dinner, and sit around with that silly, fat grin of his, dishing out local gossip and trying to pump us about Tambay in general and specially on what was going on inside Loren Oliver's stockade. Doc was polite enough to him, but there it ended. As for Juddy, she just walked out on the fat man whenever he showed up. He put up a little plaint about it to me. What was the matter with her, to be so stand-offish? All he wanted was to help us; we might be glad of his help one of these days. "How's that, Sheriff?" I asked him. "This Professor fella," he said. "What do you figure he's up to?" "What do you?" I said. "He's right secret about it," he said. "It don't look good to me." "What's your worry?" I said. "Family feelin'," he said. "I ain't the man to stand by and see my kin cheated by a Yankee. Any gold that comes out of there belongs to Tambay." He winked and tapped me on the knee. "I've read the lease," he said. "It runs out this fall. Then the ground reverts. As a business woman, Mrs. Baumer, you can appreciate that when the time comes, I can be of use. On a business basis, of course." Right there I made, my mistake. "Sheriff," I said, "we're only a coupla poor, footless females, but I kind of reckon we can run our own business." Well, he didn't take any offense. Not openly. "I'll be seein' you soon, Ma'am," he said. * * * TT was too soon. That very af- - 1 - ternoon, in fact, he was back at Tambay. Not to see me, though. He was down by the river, putting Old Swoby over the jumps, and the little man trying to understand him, and Dolf sitting up and watching them and nobody getting anywhere till I showed. "Glad to see you, Mrs. Baumer," he said. "Maybe you can make this loony understand that I want to know whether he's seen a hurt nigger coming down the stream bed?" Swoby shook his head when I put it to him. "No," I said. "What's up?" "A killing," he said. "Who killed who?" "You wouldn't like the details. The nigger got away into Tawney's Tangle," 'l haven't heard anything about Well, I hated to tell Juddy. I knew how she felt about such things. However, she was bound to know. Going across the road, I noticed a lot of activity in the air around the Hanging Tree. It looked like all the buz?ards in the county were holding a conference. The two Gullah girls! were in the woodshed talking with Uncle^ndy, the old darky Juddy had hired from, town; their voices were low and close. I asked Uncle Andy if there was something dead down by the turn, where the tree stood. He began to shake. He said: "No, Miz Mom. Not yet." It gave me a nasty jar. "What do you mean, not yet?" I said. N o 11 i e started whimpering. "Them buzza'ds yeddy the news." "They yeddy it an' they waitin'," Ollie said, and she began to snivel. "Stop it," I said. "What would they be waiting for?V "I asrt my God!" Nollie said. She wrapped her arms around herself, Gullah fashion, and began crooning a bit from one of their praise-house songs: "Sinndh-man, sinnah-man, yeddy yof doom. The yearth ain' nothin' but a silent tomb." Uncle Andy shook his white head. "Them mean birds don' bring no good to black folks. They do spells." The weather broke bad, shortly after sundown. By 10:30 I figured, there wouldn't -be any more trade for the Feederia and I could go back to the mansion and hit the hay. The night was full of wind and the noises of wind. Juddy was at the window in the big room. "Why aren't you in bed, kid?" I asked her. "I was waiting for you," she said. "Listen." The old house was groaning and grieving like a sick old lady, I sat down and took off my shoes to ease my feet. After a while Juddy said, "Something has happened, Mom." "What makes you think so?" "The girls. They're terrified. Do you know what it is?" "You won't sleep any better if I tell you." "I won't sleep anyway. Not with the house trying to talk." So I told her what little I knew. She drew a slow breath. "If they catch him—" she said. "They won't catch him. Not tonight Not in this storm." I believed it, too, because I wanted to believe it. I must have been more tired than I thought, for I dropped ofl pretty soon after denting the pillow. (To Be Continued) Backward (Continued From Page One) again in 1917, and have been there since. China has had little respite for peaceful building on the foundation of Sun Yat Sen's three principles— Min Chuan (people's livelihood), Mln Sheng (people's rights) and Min Tsu (people's nation). The miracle is that they've come up from a third-rate to a first-rate power while battling almost insuperable odds for thirty years. Brings Three Things China brings three things to the common arsenal against the Axis: (1) fighting men; (2) strategic territory; (3) experience in fighting Japs. Dr. Wellington Koo, ambassador to Britain, admitted almost casually it was 'not improbable" China had offered Russia 1,000,000 trained soldiers to resist any invasion of Russia-in- Asia. China has 5,000,000 regulars and 12,00,000 veteran reserves. They're tough, resourceful fighters. Right now, that kind of fighting men is needed around Singapore. If the Chinese can ease the pressure on the great Malayan base until mechanized forces and planes can be hauled from the U. S. and Britain, the free nations will owe China a debt that will take a lot of repayment Only Push-Off Point Territory the Chinese still hold is almost the only available land left for a push-off against the Japanese when the time comes. Finally, Chinese experience is going to be useful. The U. S. and Britain, new to the business of fighting the Mikado's men, have much to gain from Chinese know-how. The Chinese learned in the hard way to deal with Japan. Partnership in the United Nations means China will have a powerful voice in the Pacific peace settlement. It means China, only 30 years away Too Lote to Classify Lost 5 YEAR OLD HORSE. WEIGHT 1100 Ibs., white with- blue spots, roach mane and short tail. Notify L A Prather, Patmos, Rt. 1.
