He waited to see if she would attempt to repeat it (in his mind some half-formed intent of following her and killing the man when he lound him i, but she did not. If a succeeding appointment had been made, it was not for that next day. She did not go out of the house that day, nor the day after that. Again he waited, again he held his breath, but she remained dutifully at hand. The appointment, if there was to be another, still hune fire. • Nor the next, either. Thc cleaning woman came, and coming i down the stairs, he caught sight of them standing close together in i the hall, as if they had been secretively conferring together. He thought he saw Bonny hastily fumble with her bodice,'as if'con- cealing something she had just received. There are other ways of communicating than by the rendezvous direct, he reminded himself. Perhaps the appointment I have been dreading so has already been kept, right before my eyes, on a mere scrap of paper. Toward the latter part of their evening meat, that same day, .she became noticeably pensive. The woman, the go-between of treachery, had gone and they were alone together. Her casual remarks, such as any I meal shared by any two people i's seasoned with, grew more and more infrequent. Soon she was making none at all of her own volition, only answering the ones- he made. Her thoughts wore obviously elsewhere. Then, quite as insolubly as it had begun, it ended again, this abstraction. Her eyes now saw they rested on him. "Do you recall that night we quarreled:'" she .said, speaking softly. "You said something then about that old insurance policy you once took out when we were living on St. Louis Street. Was that true 1 ' Do you really still have if.'" "I still have it," he said inattentively. "But it has lapsed, for lack of keeping up with the pay- ' menls. 1 She was now busily eating, as if to make up for the'time she had wasted loitering over her food before. "Is it completely worthless, I then?" ' j "No, if the back payments were I made up it would come into effect I again. Not too much time luus i passed. 1 think." | "How much would be required?" j "Kive hundred dollars." he answered impatiently. "Have we got ! that much'.'" j "No," .she said docilely, 'but is ' there any harm in asking?' j She pushed her plate back. Shy > dropped her eyes, as if he had j rebuffed her, and allowed, them to i rest on her clasped hands. Then I taking one finger in the others, she ! began slowly to twist and turn- j about the diamond ring that had once bern his wedding gift to her. She shiflet! it this way, that, specula lively, abstractedly. "How would one go about it? J mean if we did have the money. In what way is it done'.'" "You simply .send ihe money to New Orleans, to l;ie insurance company. They credit Hie pay- i mans against ihe policy," " j "And then the policy comes into | force again? " [ "Tiie policy comes into force ogain.' he said somewhat testily, annoyed by lu-r per.sisience in clinging to the subject. He had divined, of course, what her .sudden interest was. She wa.- entertaining a va-j.ue h"p>.' that they could borrow agaius 1 , il in some way, obtain means. "Could 1 see it?' "llighl now- It's where, ainong rny it's of no value, I payments have nut been maintained." She did not ure.-.s him further. Shi: sat there nii-ditaiively finger- jug the diamond on ln-r finger, shifting it a Ittle bit this w;.v. a little bit that, so that it gave! off sparks of brilliance in the lamplight. She did not ask him fur it nor about it again, but remembering that she had. he set about looking for it on his own account. This was not immediately, but some two or three days later. 'Ho couldn't find it. He looked where he'd thought he had it. first, and it wasn't there. Then he looked elsewhere, nor could he find it in any of the other places he looked, cither. It must have been lost, during Good Traveler Lexington. S.C.—(W)— The Lexington Confederate Monument apparently is none the worse for wear despite two moves since 18GG.

Truman to Take Up Aid to China With Madame Chiang 9 —(/I 3 }— Presi- _ loclay aid to China will be taken up when he meets Madame Chiang Kai-shek at n tea tomorrow. their many hurried moves from j Washin»ton Dec plpce to place, in the course of jdenl Truman' said' hasty packing and unpacking. Or else it would perhaps yet turn up, in some unlikely place he had not yet thought of looking for it. He desisted finally, with no great concern; with, if anything, a mem- tal shrug. Since it "was worthless and could not have been borrowed against (which he thought had been the motive behind her asking about it), there was no great loss, in any case. He did not even mention to her that he could not locate it. There was no reason to, for she, too, semecl to have forgotten her earlier interest in it, as she sat here across the table from him, idly stroking and contemplating her ringless hands.
