"Nona McGuire and Georgt have been oft together all day long," Agnes said petulantly. "I haven't anyone but you to talk to now." She looked strangely »t Bea. "Why dont you come right out and say you think I'm jealous?" -I didn't intend saying anything," Bea said. "Why not? It's true enough, I suppose. It's the way things always happen to me. I tbought I'd found a real lasting friend in Nona. Then all of a sudden she and that George Bascombe have to be close to each other aU the time. Have to keep touching each other, whispering and wandering away together." "I don't think it's something sudden." Agnes paid no attention. "Why couldnt he have stayed with tna Mollie Stark? She's his sort. They belong together. He shouldn't be •with someone like Nona. And the way she looks at him! Well, guess I don't care if she want! to be like that. ! dont need her! can stay on Speare Island with I Mabel." "Mrs. Jones asked you to stay? "Does thai surprise you?" Agnes demanded. "You mean you don think anyone would want me? She stopped, drew in a deep breat and mad* one at her quic changes. "I'm a fool. I'm sorry "Even if Nona Is in love wit George. I don't see any reasa you two can't still be Friends Bea said. "You mean you don't think stv **I dont know. I meant yo«j could still be friends." u No," Agnes said thoughtful] "It wouldn't work.

"What makes you think thai?' • • * GNES shrugged the question away, went on with her own ne of thought. "You remember uring the court.

"Well it wasn't from her toning bout in bed," Miac Firth said rimly. "She was up and walking round that morning. She got a FRECKLES AND HIS FRIENDS BY MERRILL BLOSSER Let Him Leer* lack dres! and I her slink sut with that George Bascombe. aw them hurry down the trail oward the cave." "You think Mollic and George illed Lilly Warren?" "Why that's obvious," Mis* Firth said in honest surprise. Mollie wai setting her cap (or Mr. Harding. Probably some kind of a plan she and that Bascombe had. Mrs. Warren interfered. And so they killed tier." Agnes leaned closer. "You mow. 1 was worried for a while. Something I saw. Or thought i saw. And I can't Figure how it fits in. That morning 1 looked out acroas the cove where the wharf was. and I thought 1 saw someone lowering something over the eUA with a rope." Mist Cosgrove drew in a deep breath. "You're sure ol that?" "I guess so. Yes. I'm positive. And *1 know now who It wai. tt bothered me a little at (he time because 1 thought it was someone clear by tomorrow. And the surl will go down. Tomorrow we will light the beacons. The smoke from the wel wood may be seen." Bea left the shelter, walked out to where she had an unrestricted view of the Island. The sun was gone, but overhead there were still patches at a bright blue. "Here comes Agnes. She's running!" she called. < "Probably saw a ghost," Sill- well said. "Or her own reflection In a nool of water." But they all stood up, came oul and waited for Agnes Firth. Thej could hear her shouting something long before they could make out the words. "A ship!" The words camr clearly at last. "1 saw a ship!" In another tew moments she was the center of trie whole group, and words tumbled from her mouth "I was watching the sea. down near Fisherman 1 ? Cove when the sun broke through. I saw it then. The Simpatico." "Impossible." Harding snapped. "It couldn't be the Simpatico. She isnt due for a long time yet Maybe another fishing boat." "I saw tt clearly," Agnes insisted "I tell you I saw it lust as plain as could be. I eould make out H was damaged. Part of the railing at the stern was broken." Henry Harding stopped the rush.
