He has arranged with Ills old friend. Dr. Craig Talboy, a skilled physician, to come to Norfolk from a distant city for the purpose ot taking over the Carr medical practice. Talboy arrives and Is warmly greeted by Carr and his gracious wife. Shelly, at dinner In their home. Shelly Is. struck by the dark handsome Talboy's dynamic force, his charm and sense of humor and especially by his generally bad opinion of the medical profession as a whole. Fearfully, she wonders whether her husband's patients will find this bluntly franV nonconformist, acceptable as their doctor. Carr leaves for his mission to the Orient and Dr. Talboy promptly dismisses Carr's long devoted office clerk. Miss Cobb. CHAPTER NINE TALBOY probably didn't know how hard it .would be to replace Miss Cobb. Maybe Shelly herself would have to fill In— Her face brightened. Why, what a wonderful Ideal Her days then would be full, and she could perhaps sleep better At night, not be so achingly aware of her loneliness. She selected a plain dress of dark blue, thin flannel, and laid out a coat ot red fleece, a little helmet hat. She ate breakfast quickly, decided again — and ineffectually — that abe must discharge Harry and Dorina; their attitude was insufferable, and she was sure they "toted" altogether too much home from the kitchen! She didn't need both man and wife now that she entertained so little. And if she went to the office every day— .Shelly had to drive past the hospital to reach the pretty little cottage office which had been Stephen's. His name still hung in gold and black over the door, now with Dr. Craig Talboy's shingle below it. She pulled her car into the place where Stephen had always put his, and withdrew the keys, dropping them Into her red purse as she got out. She looked up to and that Pr, Talboy was standing at the entrance. White coat, dark hair, brightly questioning eyes—It was time tor office hours ancj he should been busy) "Hello, Shelly," he said warmly. "You don't come around nearly often enough." "Have J been needed?" She shook hands with him, and followed him Into the building. A dos«n patients sat In chairs In (he rooms to either side of the hill; the nurse's white pap was bent over the reception gesH, "I Jus.!; Doctor," Shelly said . quickly, almost breathlessly. This was her first visit to the place since Stephan had left. And. ... ; . "That's very kind of you." He waited, cool now, and noncommittal. -• ., . Oh, dear; Shelly had known known from the first that this man could be difficult—when he wanted to be. She looked up at hlrt earnestly. "What's wrong here?" she asked, almost in a whisper. "What was the trouble ?" He indicated his private office, and she went In; he followed her and closed the door. They sat opposite each other. "There's been no actual trouble, Shelly." "But Miss Cobb phoned me and said—" "Ah, yes!" He tipped his head to one side, and smiled enigmatically. "Miss Cobb," he said. "She's left!" . •'-..•'! His tone conjured up Miss Cobb'si prim presence. No longer young,f and very earnest— "Did you fire her, Dr. Talboy?" The smile strengthened, "Let's say she departed by mutual agreement." "Oh, dear! Stephen found her very efficient," •> /.i.. j •' "So did I! So did I! but when I want to be hag-ridden, I'll got married and have some of the advantages of that condition/' Shelly sighed. "Stephen ,,," she murmured. "Miss Cobb was—te—In love with your husband." Dr. Talboy spoke roughly. "Not In *' fleshly sense. She adores him I That's her term, and it is apt. She—In no dense—is In love with me.* His voice was as soft as cotton. "She hates me!" he said happily. The phone bussed, and he snapped a button. "Flv« lijlnutesj" he told the nurse. "J know—we'll all be late." He shut off the intercom. During the 'Interruption, She))y sat politely withdrawn.

There Is only one reason to have two waiting rooms— it balances the looks of the place. But that woman used those two rooms to divide our callers into sheep and goats. Now, don't you think that's silly?" Shelly ventured to glance at him. On what basis did she divide them?" she asked warily. Snobbish grounds, of course. If she had distinguished between contagious and noncontaglous — But, no! Our late departed Miss Cobb put society into one room, plaint workers in the other!" He tipped back in the chair and waited for Shelly to be horrified, Or amused. She was neither. She calmly waited tor him to continue, and she saw a spark of fire snap In his eyes. , "I consider it highly thera- p>.utic," .hei.said impressively, "for EJeanor '.Walsh ;to -have to sit for 30 minutes beside a ' clay puddler fresh from his job." • Eleanor!
