I hedged, foil have seen me before," said. There wa« a trick m ft where. She w»s not ttw kind at giri that men target. [ was 15," she said, "in pigtails, and you said you liked t way I cooked beans." "Wait a minute!" I said. Visions at a skinny brat in • checked gingham dress flashed be- lore my eyes. "You wouldn't b« old Parboiled Parn*U'» daughter would you?" "Yes," she said. I got up and gave her a forma bow. "Misa ParneU," *I said, "when next see your father I shall congratulate him on hie excellen taste in daughters." "You won't be seeing him," sh« s*id quietly. "He died two year "I'm sorry. H« w« a friend o* mine." He had been more than that When 1 was young and knew ererylhmg, be took me in hand and taught m« the things they don't teach in a School oC Mines. Maybe he liked me because I refused to be awed by his magnificently explosive temper, but, at any rate, we had always gotten along famously. "He was a grand old man," I said. "Now thai he's gone, who's running lh« Dark AngelJ" "I am." T DIDN'T get rt at first, so I tried to make myself clearer. "Sure. Naturally you'd, inherit everything —Parboiled never had a partner—• but, your dad was his own mine manager, superintendent and everything. Who Vooks after the mine for you?" Her eyes sparked, and it didn't hurt her looks. "1 told you, I'm running it." "Congratulations," I said, and wondered how long the Dark Angel would last Miners are a superstitious bunch. They think a woman around a mine is poison. "Thanks." There was a short silence. 1 could guess what this was leading up to. She wouldn't admit she wa» licked, but, jusl Ihc same, she was looking (or n roan to < her show. "I'd like you to have a look at the mine," she said. "I'll put your name at the head I r»»« ker tbree spanks. I don'4 know how mack they hurt— mor* eODccrne4 wilt Lh* gnnciple al the thinx Vtam hwi- in* recall*. of the list—-for three months from now." "I can't watt thret months." I shrugged. "There are other mining engineers in this town . _ ," t She bit her lin«. Not because' they were trembling—Lord, no— but because she was mad at not getting what she wanted. "Dad told me there were very few people in the world he trusted completely—and you were one ol TT was good psychology, and I'm human. And, besides, she was Parboiled's daughter. I said. What's this special job Doug mentioned? " Her face lit up- "1 want you lo find out what'l happened to No. 5 vein.** It was definitely anticlimax. It was like expecting a request to scale the Himalayas and then being asked to walk upstairs. "Cory," 1 said, making my voice as gentle a* 1 could, "the woods are full of nic« young mining engineers, with shiny, new diplomas, just itching to look for lost veins. Give any one o< them enough powder or a diamond drill oulfit, and he'll Und your vein for you 1 don't took for lost veins," I said, "I look for mines—and I find them often enough lo charge outrageous fees, Now, you Uke some good advice, Cory. You gel yourself an experienced, competent manager to run your show—a man, naturally, and don't bother your pretty little head about lost veins. You stick to cocktail parties, fashion shows, buying silly hats . . ." I realized afterwards it must have sounded damnably superior. My voice was patronizing, too, and thai, plus ink hair-trigger Parnell temper, really did it. She lossed her drink right in my face. t was around the table before she'd set her glass down. She had halt risen', which made it easier, echnically speaking. 1 gave her three spanks. I dont tnow how much they hurt—I was more concerned with the principle of the thing than lasting results—but my hand stung as though I'd fielded a hot grounder. T SHOVED her down in her chair. - 1 returned lo mine and awaited developments. It happened so rjuickly thai there were surprisingly few. A waiter came over and gaped at us. "Two rye highballs," 1 said, and slipped him a five. He wcnl away looking puzzled. "All right," I said, "get it out ot your system." "1 hate you!'' she blazed. "You're the most hateful person I ever met! I hate the sight—" "Two hates, res, but three hates, no. It's repetitious." f She glared at me. "Look," I Mid, "if you'll apologize, I'll apologize, then we'll rx quits." She drew herself up and hei eyes Bashed like newly-mined quartz crystals. "I never apologize," she mapped. She looked gorgeous. "All right," I .wid, "then let's declare an armistice. Where would you like to eal?' ' (To B> I REFER. " MUST HOUSEHOLD) TUS.
