Tna men laughed^ Don could hqve kicked hmweff. To hts surprise, he vtrote plainly and weW ... Don thought of paraldehyde as Bim took him to the elevator, ' In a few seconds, Don was dres-jA wonderful feeling, easy light. The scd again in dry clean clothes. He ran down and borrowed ten dollars from Mr. Wallace at the grocery store. In the liquor store he got a quart and bounded up the stairs, tore off the wrapper and. poured a drink all In the space, of five minutes. . . •' He held the glass in his shaking hand and almost did not need H. Wliy didn't .1 do this In the first place? he asked himself with a surprised smile. What « story that trip to the closed pawnshops would make. Great! He drank. The new drink warmed his stomach, all his whole tired frame. He poured another. In a short time, the quart was almost half empty. He looked at it in alarm which gave way to a feeling of delight. For once he was going to have sense enough not to be caught short I He had the money. He sprang up. That money, did ijft stSll have It? As he pulled what was left of Mr. "Wallace's ten from Ills pocket, he wondered again what had happened to all the money he had had yesterday. Certainly he had never spent It all. To hell with it. These "bills were as good as enough-to-drink and more. Provided he sot there and back. He was feeling great, a little unsteady, perbapc, but strong enough. He opened the door and looked back at the half-full bottle. He pointed, "You stay there!" -said. "Don't hide or evaporate! I'll be right back." At the top of the stairs, he heard people on the landing • below—the two ladies and their dog Sophie •who lived In the front apartment. They saw him and stepped back. dog barked, the ladies squealed". 'Oh,' Mr. Blrrmmt Are you hurt?" He picked himself up. "Not a bit, Hfcllo, little Sophie." The two ladles exchanged glances. 'Mr. Birnam, are you sure you're all right?" "Quite, I'm not hurt & bit, don't along," h« said, "111 Birnam. You come "No, come wait." "No. Mr. down." "Very well," he said. "Thank you.' He started down smiling, his hat in his hand. He found himself falling trouble caused yourself, such a Sorry fuss. to have Goodbye Sophie!" He walked lightly along the landing and turned for the second night. Flight is good. His. silly foot missed as before—It was easy, delightful He heard the. women squeal again and saw with a smile the newel-post rising like a growing expading up-swinging hammer to strike ... Like a. fish of the deep rising to the surface of bright air and sun, Don swam up to consciousness' out of a dead blank into a whiter world than he had ever seen. He heard voices very near against a background medley of babblings and shrleka, moans and muttering, i He was lying prone and someone was working on his back. He flopped over and found'himself in a low bed, so low that two men were kneeling on the edge. "Turn" over again," one said; and the other, "Take It easy, baby." .. "What's going on here? Where am. I?" ' ' . "You're In the hoepSUl, the alcoholic ward." He didn't get this. What right had they to touch him? He heard the bedlam. "What's all that racket?" '; ..- • a : ":'•• "The others. Now relax. We want to' draw off a little of the spinal fluid. Believe the pressure on the brain." i . . "Oh no you're not;" He drew up his knees and his head exploded in pain above his eyes. They told him he had a slight fracture of the skull but he didn't believe It. The doctor, a small nian, spoke to ;he male nurse as if Don weren't there at all. "We can't give it to him without his consent, Bim. He seems to be In his right mind." "Try him, Doctor." The doctor turned back to Don. "What's your name?" "Don Birman," he answered, almost haughtily. Me gave his address, too. The doctor askoU, "What year is It?" "Nineteen thirty-six!" What month? "October." What day? Oh- oh. This is something he couldn't be sure of. "I—I'm sorry, I guess I don't know. . ." They went over the whole thing again and he gave the right answers except for the day. The 'doctor turned again to the nurse. "All right, Bim. Give ' him some paraldehyde and let him go." He started down the room. Don suddenly couldn't let him go like that, "Doctor," he called. The doctor went, oh without turning back. .The big male nurse was looking down at hinu.l'What did you want?" Don'asked him what day It actually was. "Sunday." Don sank back relieved; Wick would not be home yet. Bim told him then that-he had been brought in In an ambulance the day before. "You've got 'an awful black eye," he said. He drew-a, small round inlrror from his pocket.' "Want to see what you look, like?" Instinctively, Don raised his hand to his .eye but he pulled away from the mirror. "No thank you. . ." "Listen," Don said. "Didn't the doctor'say 1 could go?" "Okay, I'll get It for you." Don asked him what he was going to get. "Your paraldehyde, you'll love it." Don watche'd him go. The big man moved dowh.the'ward with a noiseless casual tread. He began to realize the spot he was in. The alcoholic ward. So here "he was at last. Inevitably h« would wind "up in this place and the only wonder was that he hadn't been here before.

On the mattress next to his, a aunt roan lay staring at the ceSl- ng. His white Jags stuck out bs- w the pathetically short gown like cadaver. His' entire frame qulv- red as if a fine motor operated omewhere beneath him. Farther off, a middle-aged Negro abbled God knows what at the top f his lungs. An intelligent-looking lart leaned against the wall a lew eet away In a stiff faded robe held ogethsr by a safety-pin, looking x>ut casually and being careful to void every returning glance. You ouldn't have caught his eye if ou tried. Other men in faded robes or short owns moved restlessly up and down IB aisle/ There' was a strong smell ' disinfectant. Where had he been Icked up? By whom? What or ho had given him a fractured kull? All he remembered' was the ottle left behind' on the living oom table.

The doctor pointed out patients, noi roubllng to lower his voice. "Now hat one over there—" The alarmed pfttients began to respond In earful apprehension. They stood between Don's bed and that of the gaunt man. "Now this fellow came in last night. He ;ays he had only one glass of beer. 1 As the gaunt man awoke to the fact hat he was under study, the invisible motor speeded up. Sweat began to stand out above the eager eyes, eager to please.

The front of the gown was already dark with sweat. What daj it? "Wednesday, Doctor.' Wh'at month? He raised his hand to his mouth but It kept hitting his chin. He gasped, "January." Then 'Doctor, won't you give me something?". "Not now. You can have all you want of those things in the hall Go help yourself." The doctor told the other man "He wants a sedative but we don' jive them in the daytime. He can have aalt tablets. Put them to sleep no-w and thayl! be raising hel all night. Delirium is a disease o th* night.' As th« ,two men moved down the ward, the gaunt man began grad ually to subside In hi* pool of sweat Delirium U a disease of the night God what an expression. Bim came back with Don's clothes wadded Into a ball and tied with rope. Don put them on. There were- four nickels in the pockets— that was all. "Where's my hat?" "Are you sure you had a hat? Don said, yes. "They dWn't give me a hat with your clothes, but III go see again. Don watched him go. Thank Got h«'d be out of here In a minute He couldn't Identify himself with the place.

We don't, want him to col-' lapse." • . , "And then what? Will he start all over?" .. . "Possibly. They usually do. Most of them come' back but not so much this kind of 'patient; they can afford private hospitals or sanitariums usually and they go there." "I see. The . poor keep coming back. The rich go away to private places, and get 'a cure." "There isn't any cure, besides just stopping. And how : many of them an do that? They believe they can ake It or leave it alone— so they ake It." He looked at -Don. "Why on't you go home? You can, you now." "I'm waiting for. my hat." The nen glanced at each other and aughed. Don conld have kicked imself. . They move'd off and Bim came Jack. "They say you didn't have a at." He said . he'd show Don the ay out. 'They, started down ths ward, Don keeping his eyes ahead, unable to meet the derisive, yearn- ng or fearful glances he f«lt from 11 -sides. Bim said, "You've got to gh .a paper releasing the hospital rom responsibility. 'That's • because ou wouldn't take the treatment we flere'd." In the hall, a nurse handed up a winted form, Don took the pen, hinklng of' the agonizing times his land had shaken so hard he ouldn't write. To his surprise., he wrote his name plainly and wcii. Paraldehyde, he must hang onto it, never forget it. Bim took him to the elevator, ooklng at him with the odd smile. The elevator doors slid open; he aw the brightly lighted car and the udden response on the faces of the lassengers (the violent discoloration »fx his eye?); he stepped in and juickly turned his back; through he small glass window of the door he saw the nurse's eyebrows raised n farewell; and the floor gave way icneath hts feet ... As Don came out Into the bright unllght and started toward the treet, an ambulance turned in at he gate. Dang-dang,-gang-gang- dang. He walked on to a bus stop at he corner, reached Into his pocket or one of the nickels, and stepped nto a bus. He went to the far end of the bus and aat-down. But he might Just as well have stayed up front. The passengers turned to look at him.

He raced up the stairs. But the whisky was gone. On the table was <mly his hat. The. room was cleaned up. Had Wick come back? Had Heen got in? No. Mrs. Fpley?
