PANCIEHA nodded slowly. "I thought I saw tjiat in your eyes." He paused and then went on, "The gentleman tonight, I gather, turned out to lie much more attractive than the—the 'poor gink' I think you railed him—the gink up at Cedarbrook." His irony curled his lips ever 90 slighdy. "Am I lr> assume that thij is an infatuation—even love, possibly?" Jean Roland was beginning to be annoyed now. "Assume what you like." Mr. Fancier* sighed. "Poor youth, poor helpless youth. To break his heart upon a stone. I think—" He spoke carelessly ~but nonetheless poinledly. "—I think perhaps I shall have a little talk wHh the younK man in the morning.;'Where is Tim Reese staying?'.'. "Not Tar from here, but much loo far for you," Jean said sharply. He smiled tolerantly. "Perhaps, then, you would prefer to ask him over here?" "What would jou ta|k bo him about?" He was very* relaxed, offhand. "Oh, one th'" ? ;>rd another. FUis- iness, possibly." lie shrugged. "We might even, if you would stay mildly sanp, talk over some salis- taclory arrangement (or the three of us." She shook her head firmly. "You may be sure 1 shall not ask him over. You might take it into your head to talk about me." . He smiled his ironic smile. "Could it be it has occurred to you lhal he and you mighl make very profitable combination? Could it ever be avarice, sweet?" • t • _, she turned away from him and went quickly to the passageway lhal led lo the rear of the apartment. She returned almost immediately in a heavv coat. "Now, now. I wouldn't be »> inpetiioiifs," he reproved her. "It is good to flee iniquity but 1 reel the flight would be belter made in the rpnrning. Does he know you reside here?" What do you think?" She stopped, faced him. "No. It's simply I'm tired ol your manners Your artificiality is getting on my nerves. And, I might add. you conceit is also." "He is so natural, isn't he, and so modest. One or nature's owi gentlemen. How I suffer in com parison." 'You do! AnrI I'm in love wilh him, ir that's what you want to k«ow!" She went swiftly to the door. "Dear, dear." He sighed, shook his head sadly. "Love, t.ove at last. You, such a prettily coiled steel mechanism, in love. Truly I live En an age of wonders." She opened the door. Swiftly he stepped forward, closed it. "No." He was cool, authoritative now. "No. It would hardly b< good business for you—or for me, for that matter—if you should be seen tramping throilKh a hotel lobby at this hour of the morning. It could hardly be described as in good laste. lo put. it mildly. Nor do 1 Hunk il would enhance ,„„. eplltalion any lo have people say- -ng 1 threw you out." He took her arm, led her back Into the .room. "I will go, if it will make you any happier." "It will, considerably." He shrugged, went to a closet immediately inside of the passageway. In a moment he was back with his hat, coal and gloves. "Nobody will notice an artificial and conceited poor creature like rue at this hour of the night." He went to the door. "And if anyone should notice, il will be said lhal you threw me oul. That will be considered amusing." He opened the door. "I shall be over for coffee in the morning. 1 am sure there will be much'less heal and much more light then." "I will be leaving in the morning." "I -shall try lo be here in time to bid you adieu. Good night, my wonderful one." He closed the door softly and was gone. QVER Manhattan, the morning broke gray and cold, but not for Tim Reese. His expectancy of the day awakened him early and his bright memories of the night befoi-e kept him awake. The drab day and the plain hold room were for him golden-hazed with pleasure. Those dreams he had had in tin hospital, the play of many scene? and many curtains, which haci stretched so far into the distance were beginning lo he loo real nov. for Tim to be anything bul happy It was wilh an exuberance hr had not known for years that he climbed out of bed and went to the window lo shut il. He turned away from the window »nd then slopped abruptly. Astounded, he stared at his canes standing against- the wall near the bed where he had placed them the night before. He started at the canes » long moment, finding it difficult lo believe their testimony. Then, suddenly, he gave out with a whoop of joy. He had in his 1 exuberance walked without the canes. He hdd walked without help for the first lime since 1944. (To Be Continued) HOW MUCH TO GET RID There's no need to b« worrier! about (he safely of your car.
