He looked at her sharply, then grinned: "Want to send trie Jan moU?" "Yes, you might call it that." "Good. I'm recognized at last!" "The address—?" Miss Major was subtly persistent. "Summit Hospital, Cedarbrook, will get me for a while." She gave him one of her characteristically skeptical looks. "It's my country place." She smiled. "I'm willing to believe anything." She wrote the address down. "Thank you very much." She came fiom behind the desk. She was very friendly. "Miss Roland lives up on the fourth floor if you wish to see her." "In this building?" "There's an elevator in the shop. She's probably still in bed but Martha, her maid, will be there.' "1 guess it'll be all right if I go up, won't it?" He turned toward the door. "Miss Roland should be glad to see you, Mr. Reese." « Tim, unmindful of the cryptic note in Miss Major's speech, turned and went out. His walk was slill awkward, difficult, but he moved less slowly llian before. jyjISS MAJOR watched him go. Then, she turned swiftly back to the desk, took tip the paper with Tim's name and address on it, folded it carefully and put it into her purse. Paul Panciera, in his hat and overcoat, entered. "Good morning, Mr. Panciera." Miss Major was completely at ease. "Do you know if Miss Roland is upstairs?" "I happen not to have seen Miss Roland this morning." He \ tired, irritable. "Why?" "Just curiosity." Miss Major rose from the desk, moved to a closet at one sitle. He was annoyed. 'A good secretary does not indulge in curiosity." She put on her hat anil coat. "I don't pretend to be a good secretary," she said. "You are impertinenL" He was more annoyed. "You are going out. I gather,my presence here is not important to you." She fixed her hat before a minor, did not speak. "May 1 suggest that you do not come back? You will please me by considering yourself dis charged." She picked up her purse from the desk. Then, she went to the door, turned and faced him. "You can't discharge me very well, Mr. Piinciera. I was just leaving. It so happens I've heei working for Mr. Cochet for years. She gave him her bland smile. "I enjoyed talking with Mr. Reese. H really has a wonderful talent." "Cochet planted you here—!" The realization thai his business com|;eli(or had planted a spy in his own establishment left him speechless. "Goodby, Mr. Panciera." She went out, leaving the sligVHest tinkle of laughter behind her. for once, Mr. Panciera was on the point of losing his poise. • • • ATARTHA, tlie (rim, colored 1 * maid, admitted Tim lo the apartment on the fotirlh floor. He gave his name and assured her Miss Roland would he glad to see him. The maid went back into the apartment. In a moment, the maid relumed. 'Miss Roland just woke up. It'll be a few minutes before she can see you. Would you wait, please?" There were many enchanting pictures of here and there in the'apartment, and Tim's eye, as he sat and waited for her, went happily jrom one picture to another. He was pleased lo discover that in many of the pictures she was wearing costumes designed by' him. His eye came to rest on one (hat held his attention especially, a sensitive camera study of Jean modeling a bridal dress. She was the perfect bride, ethereal and still alluring. The bridal dress was not one ol Tim's designs. lie decided, as he mused over the picture, he would sketch one for her very soon The door of the apartment was opened and Mr. Panciera entered admitting himself by key He had divested himself of his hat and overcoat. He was still distraught from his scene with Miss Major and it was a moment before he discovered Tim. For an instant, Mr. Panciera was at a loss. But only for an instant Good morning. A wretched day isn't it?" " Once more that troubled feeling about Mr. Panciera returned to Tim Reese. The man had been momentarily brushed away by Jean's explanations the night before, but still he remained, like a lly on a white ceiling, a small, but definitely ikjome distraction. ^ci Mr. Panciera seemed to feel quite at home.
