Mr. Amenly is a stranger; also his word is not especially reliable. Our friends will take our word. And we will not even have to give it." She walked out of the room and after a moment, Terry followed her up the stairway and knocked at her door. When she went in, Cordelia was lying on a chaise lounge, and Terry said, "I shouldn't have come up, you want to rest." "No, sit down there at the foot." "Thank you for saying what you did." "It was simple enough. I should have said it the other night, at Naniola. But then, of course, things seemed quite different." "Very different. Yesterday when Chris and I were alone, it was mostly of you that he talked." Cordelia looked at her. "I've had quite a while to realize what I have missed and what I have lost." "Not lost, Aunt Cordelia." "Yes. It should always have been Chris of course, but I wouldn't let it be. It's too late now. I can't even return to the uncomplicated affection I might have felt for him when he was a child, because it was never uncomplicated, you see. Nor can he feel about me as once he felt ... I know how he felt now, I knew it when he said, 'It was you!' He is no longer a child and an adult outgrows his parents or his substitute for them if he's to be py. That's looked at "And the way it must be -with you," she added, "for you must outgrow your dependence on your father." "I have," said Terry. "Not wholly. You can't go back, Terry, to the way things used to be, any more than I can go back and be a young woman again. But Chris and I understand each other now. We can be friends. And because we can be friends, he must let me help him wherever and whenever I can." She smiled a little. "At least you and I need have no reservations. I liked you immediately. I thought, I would have wanted a daughter very like you." "You didn't feel it the other night at Naniola. I could feel you not thinking it." "Only for a moment. I am a conventional woman, I have been for the greater part of my life. the way it is.'\ Terry thoughtri^, .y. found I felt no difference toward you, Terry." Terry rose and went to the head of the couch, bent down and touched her lips to Cordelia's luncheon, and then she'll drive me to your mother's where I'll stay for a while.

She was by now accustomed to the traffic and the throngs of people of all races, but she would never tire of the surge and flow, of the old men with flower leis about their hats, of the Hawaiian women who still wore the holuku, of the elderly Chinese who had not followed the younger generations into Western ways of dress. At the bank a pleasant young teller, half Chinese, half Portuguese cashed her small check. She thanked him, put the money in her purse and looked at her watch. She had time to go see Jack before lunch. She left and walked to the office. It was nrt a high building, but it was big, and built around a court, patio fashion. Flowers bloomed in the court, trees bestowed their green shade, a fountain splashed into a pool. Jack's office was on the first floor. She waited briefly in an anteroom and was then admitted. It was cool here too, the room was large and pleasantly bare, except for the fine desk, the comfortable chairs and utilitarian files. There were enlarged photographs of plantation scenes on the walls, a Kelly etching, and a picture of Naniola from the air. "Well," said Jack, "this is an innovation." It was the first time she had been here since her arrival in the Islands when Hugo had taken her through the offices. She said, "I come under white flag." the She did not display it. She wore a cotton frock, in a pale, soft green, and a brimmed white hat, and around her throat the lei of carved ivory that Jack had given her. He asked, "Was this trip necessary?" and picked up his hat from the polished surface of the desk. It was a panama, wreathed with a feather lei. He turned it over in his hands and put it down again. 'I think so. You haven't been to see us." 'I didn't believe I'd be welcome." She said, "We'll both welcome you." "Both?" ' Terry sighed. "It wasn't sensible of you to go to Mr. Mannering, Jack. Whatever you said could make no difference.

But or some time I've wanted to ask 'ou to do something for me." He said irrelevantly, "You're a r ery pretty woman, Terry." "If that could be of any influ- nce, thank you," she said unsmil- ngly.

As of now, Mr. Mannering is very pleased with Chris. He works hard. . . ." "A timekeeper, I believe," said Jack politely. (To Be Continued.) Webster City Pastor Accepts Goodel! Call Goodell—The Rev.
