"He's an awfully nice chap—and then look at fell the money he has. I know he's crazy about you. They all ore; you'd never have any iii-iaw troubles. I'm sorry I didn'l see Mr.. Searles—" The visit on Long Island was over and the Iwo girls were back al the clubhouse, discussing tho week-end. "Yes," Gail agreed. "I'm sorry, loo, that he wasn't Ihere, but he was called away unexpecled- ly." "To Arizona, wasn't it?" "Yes." "Is he interested in mines loo?" ..."Oh, he's interested in lols ol different, things. Perhaps mining is one of them, though I think this, trip was in connection with some land he owns. Rosemary said something abonl an irrigation projecl. She thinks il would be a grand idea for us lo fly out there with Dick and bring her lalhei home." "Oil, tlial would be great! Then you could meet your uncle and ECO your property," exclaimed Natalie. "Yes. dial's what she said." "Why don'l you do it, Gail?" "Maybe I will." , /^AIL tossed Ihe morning newspaper aside. She knew she proposed trip to Arizona and she did want to meet her long-lost uncle. Then there was Dick—he was still urging her lo many Mm. He'd asked her again this last week-end and again she'd turned him down. She really ought to do something about an apartment, but that hinged partly on her plans after her trip to the west, Her little room was growing hotter by the minute, for H got the morning sun. Suddenly Gail "What about Derek Hargreaves? When are you going to marry him?" Gail was silent. "Then you haven't seen him yet?" Mrs. Morton continued. "I think that Is n mistake. That young man loves you, but remember a less scrupulous woman th:. i you can usually turn ci mini's heart where she wants it—no matter how fine or strong he is, perhaps because ho is so gallant.

She picked up the telephone and learned that a train would leave in half an hour. She decided to go. It would be lovely to spend a day beneath the green, young- leafed trees, to hear birds sing instead of the raucous noises of Manhattan. Perhaps away from all the clamor and dirt of the city she would be able to make up her mind about her problems. t t v "\\7ELL," Mrs. Morton said, smiling, "this is a pleasure "I'm helping Mrs. Ilinchcliffc and I'll be busy meeting all those people"—and her- dark eyes rovec across the landscape —"but must have a talk with you, Gail Won't you have tea with me abou 4 o'clock? I'll meet you at thi door of the Marquee." "That will be lovely," Gail ai. swertd, though Mrs. Morton keen eyes were quick to sens that beneath the girl's apparent brightness something was troubling her.

She lad turned down an invitation rom Natalie to join her and some ither girls who were going to ome affair. At last she pulled on a hat, deciding to go for a walk. It would at least kill time. She sauntered ilong aimle"ly. Then suddenly she found herself before the building where Derek's sludio Sometimes he worked at night. Gail glanced up saw that a dim liiOU gleamed against, the long north windows. So he was working tomghl! She walked on more slowly. How could Derek paint in that light? But perhaps he was, not working. Mrs. Morton had suggested that Gail should, go to his studio and explain things. But she had nothing to explain! She was on Park avenue now, but it was not the Park avenue of winter when luxurious limousines speed along ami women, richly dressed In furs lliat cost fortunes and jewels worth ran- doms, pass into magnificent hotels, accompanied by immaculate escc'ts.

"Oh, it's been-beautiful, bill I've been' terribly lazy. I thought Xvhen I.caihe out here I'd have peace to think out some of my problems, but I'm 'no nearer lo any conclusions." "Have you so many problems then?". •"Quite a lew." Gail told abou' her changed financial circum- slar-es and the end of her careei at Madame Lizette's. A car stopped at Ihe curb and ;a;i saw a tail young woman. swathed In an evening wrap of sheer blacic velvet, . step quickly within Ihe tessellated hall of a andsome apartment house. Could Gail have followed she woidd have seen Ihe ypimg woman slip off the cape as she entered Don Luis Doro's apartment. It was Lucille Travers. "Luis," she whispered in tragic tones,' as the ' Japanese butler closed the .door of the library. "I've made up my mind.

"Having an early breakfast for a lady of leisure, aren't you? What's the idea?" "I'm going to look at some apartments," Gail told her. "One of Ihe real estate men 1 met yesterday lokl me I'd betler decide en one soon, even though I don't want possession until September." A uniformed messenger entered the dining room and approached fhe head waitress. 1 "Look!" said Nalalie. "There's ling on the Santa Lucia for uenos Aires are Don Luis Y oro and his lovely bride, the rmer Lucille Travers.'" "Lucille married? But who is ,c man?" asked Gail. "I never heard of him before," atalic said, idly turning the ages ot the newspaper, "but I'll el he has money. Lots of South mericans are very wealthy. Well, suppose we won't hear any more bout her until she decides to di- orce him." * • * * [UIE lunch hour crowd had already begun lr> gather when a lelegram for someone—why, he's coming over here—" The messenger was beside them. "Miss Everett?" he asked, as he reached the table. "This is Miss Everett." Natalie told him. As Gail look Ihe envelope, opened it and unfolded Ihe oheel inside, she went on, "Is another fortune for you", Gail?" * t » ""THE other girl road the telegram swiftly. "Well," she announced "I don't have lo fly lo Arizona A codicil to my grandfather's wil has been found by some lawye: and Uncle Mark is now Ihe own er of the Rancho Angelo. So that's that!"

Nnlalic asked when Gail had re- lurncd. "She thinks I should lake the trip anyway and gel acquainlcd with my uncle, but of course I wouldn't do that." "Did you speak lo Dick, too?' 1 "No, he's on his way in town Gail met Dick Searles in the lob- y of a fashionable hotel.

The fine arls room was nol crowded and she found the books she wanted and a little table with no one seated al It in a secluded corner of Ihe room. Gail started . lo make some drawings. How quiet it was! Surely the attendants tip-toed on rubber soles like the rubber-tired trucks they wheeled about. Quickly she made sketch after sketch, her eyes intent on the book before her. Suddenly she raised them. A young man was silting opposite her. Her eyes looked straight into Derek's! For a tense moment each appraised the other. Then Gail whispered, "Derek!" He leaned across the table and imprisoned both lier lianas in his. "Do you still love me, Gail?" he asked. "What a fool I've been! What can yon think of me?" "I missed your letters."

The mighty V-8 engine is conservatively rated by Ford at 80 horsepower—more than is needed for most work , . . And this is one of the main reasons for a Ford truck's economy. Because, with so much reserve power, the Ford V-8 does .its work easier, with less effort. It operates efficiently and at low cost because it is'usually below "peak." The whole truck, straight to the rear axle, gives longer life than would be possible with a relatively under-powered, over-worked unit. And V-8 power is coupled with extra strength ih the Ford truck ...
