' Nicky's bland face changed m little; his cruel lower lip protruded. lie got up. "I see it's no use to talk to you, Craig. Oh, by the way, fonr divorce is still in good standing, t presume ?" Craig's straight, dark eyebrow, made a line across ha face. "What do you mean?" "Oh, nothing," replied Nicky airily. "Except Drue is in circulation again. Prettier than ever. I'd forgotten" he stopped, laughed a little "well, no nut quite forgotten. After all, she did leave you onoe and I daresay you remember why. So if she is absolutely free . . Craig declared shortly, "Drue is perfectly free. As you know, Nicky. Now get out." When he'd gone, Craig my for long time looking at natoiiig, with very grim expression.

"Alexia, tins time," I said a Utile grimly. "Oh, Alexia." Her eyelid went down and she patted the little dofS vigilant head.

He glanced in both times and smiled airily, looking like a young leopard on the prowl. It was much later when I heard Peter's return and by that time i had closed the bedroom door. There was no chance to talk to Drue. Once or twice during the niht I glanced into the hall. Mr. Wilkins or his double sat in a chair just outside her door. The next morning the police were prowling through the grounds, and later Kugent questioned me about the affair in the meadow, the trooper having reported the shooting to him. "Perhaps someone believed that you have seen more than you were willing, publicly, to admit. You gave me that impression, too." "But 1 saw nothing! Besides, no one last night could have known 1 would be just there, above the meadow." "Well, can you suggest another motive?" I eouldn"t. of courae, and Nugent went away, ieat ing me with mixed emotions. Alexia telephoned that morning for a full mourning outfit, and 1 believe Maud assisted the polive in going through the papers in Con-raxi's desk and the aafe. It was that morning, too, that reporters arrived; Chivery and .Nitny saw them. Later one of the papers had a picture of Dr. Chivery tiiien as he was stepping into hit ear in front of his own white-picketed gate. Titere was a picture of Drue, too, faer graduating picture which someone had discovered. She looked very lovely above the stern seventy of the Bishop collar our nurses wear on state occasions. Some of the papers made much of her brief marriage to Craig. None of the papers reached as until after the next morning's train, which was just as welL Crair's condition was good, so far as the wound went: but there was a kind of nervous, fine-drawn look about his mouth and eyes. The police did not question Drue that morning. She asked about Craig and some of the shadow in her eyes seemed to lessen when 1 told her he was better. j About ne-thirty.
