Sumatra, Java, the Island of Bali, are practically in the Sultan's back yard. Something has just vanished, leaving a sad-looking vacant area in that portion of the brain whoso function is (lay-dreaming. Whatever became of that pleasant little reverie full of the delicate sound of temple bells, tliu scent ol exotic (lowers, the music of girlish laughte'r? It was positively cluttered with anklets, ear-rings, sandals, sarongs, and queenly bearings. If memory serves. Lund of Opportunity ; Have n nice, bracing shot of today's special in the line of rejuvenating tonics: a west coast doctor got a fat "technical adviser's" fee the other day for demonstrating, before a motion picture actress (lie correct way to appear to be dying. ' H seems probable that this field of '.'technical advising" has been a kind of underground profession, or else it certainly would have been stocked with enough specialists by now to preclude the necessity of calling a nnin away from his regular work to [ill in. Golden is no word for the opportunities. \Vhal bright young man would like to step tip and show some actress suffering from insomnia how to seem to-be asleep? Or would instruction in the art of appearing (.„' i jc hiking it sun bath suit you butter? Or how about giving the illusion of thinking far-away thoughts in an easy chair? Don't think "lliu development of this Held would be of benefit only to f'o unemployed or Die square pegs in the round holes. There's a crying need among actresses for proper instruction in ;i number of stunts similar to the onra already mentioned. Many can appear to ho asleep, and slill more can appear (o l>u at least partly (load, but few can protend convincingly to be merely preloading to be asleep or dead. Hut instructors in the lust two tricks would probably be a little harder to find. They involve prolty much effort.

At 1 1 o'clock the tender returned fo the ship with passengers from shore, its red and green lights laulalizini; ns a mirage as (lie boat passed IJcyond tlic r.-itige of their voices, It was as 15 (licir last veslige of hope had vanished. Through the long hours, Dick had held out thai promise of salvation. Now lie started to pull off his shoes. "I'm going lo swim for it," he lo'd them. "We can't wait here forever." Joyci; put mil ;i restraining iiaiKl. "We'll all go logrthcr, Dicii. You can't ritk it atom'." But Dick grasped Joym's hand, clung to if for a second and then he was gone. The black waters swallowed him, and prcscudy there was no sign o[ him save the sound of his swimming. And then thai loo was intermingled with the founds of the night. It was several minutes later when suddenly Joyco heard Ihe lender again. Once more she vralchc--! ils red and green lights appear, two infinilesima! dols it: a world of blacknrw. She felt them draw closer to the reef, only lo disappear an instant an the boat swerved round the buoy. Slowly it chugged its way along; soon it would be opposite them, in midstream. "Ohadiah! We must both shout now— together!" She look a deep breath, opened her mouth — Simultaneously another call came to her cars. Sho slopped, listening. Was it only the echo of her own voice? "Ahoy! A-hoy-y!" 3ut no. It was Dick's voice! He was out there iti midstream; he was within calling distance of the tender! Again she heard it, clear and strong oti Ilic cold night breeze. Soon there were oilier sounds too, other voices answering his call, and she knew thai the lender had sighted him". She heard ila engine slop, Ihen resume at a slower pace. She saw that the red' and green lighh were .stationary now. And then she did what she had wauled to do all along. Slip, let down the barriers of forlitnde and reserve, and she cried. She loosed the hard sobs dial were choking her; she cried long and lustily, enjoying every salt tear. . . . Later, perhaps an hour, after Dick and two of (he rnen from the tender had rowed out and taken them ofT the reef, she was back on the Empress, its stout, strong decks secure beneath her feel, with lier own kindly stewardess wrapping her in a warm ship's blanket and whispering words ot cheer. Dick was beside her, wrapped m a .similar blanket, and exhausted (hough he was, his eyes were shining with a deep new tenderness. "Joyce, dear," he was saying, "you're Hie best sport a girl could be . .'." •it*. ]JK. GRAY stopped ill to see her the firsl thing next morning. Jl was after B o'clock but she was just beginning lo open her eyes. "Well, young lady, how do yon feel tliis morning?" Her eyes widened, '.slowly, and memory began to dawn in them. "J'm fine, thanks." "Clad lo hear it," lie laid a professional hand on her forehead. "You don'l look any the worse for your ouling. All you needed was a good night's sleep." "How's Dick?' Dr. Gray chuckled. "He's been up since daybreak, but I gave him strict orders not (o waken you. Now he's gone over lo Hamilton on some secret mission . . ." "To Hamilton?" Joyce shuddered. "I wouldn't cross that water again . . ." "Oh. come /iow. r " The doctor regarded her more critically. Perhaps it had been a bad" fright, more than she let on. He mustn't let il leave a scar. "Don't fell me you'd let a little midnight soak- ins frighten you." She met the challenge in his eyes. "I'd rather slay on the boat ..." He stroked his chin thoughtfully. "Well, that's loo bad, now. All Ihc ladies have gone ashore, and fin trying lo find someone to do r a little shopping for me. I promised my wife sonic doeskin gloves from Trimingham's. Bui I daren't leave Ihc ship; I have one of the crew down with acute appendicitis." Joyce hesitated. The morning sun streamed through Ihc port, and she knew that the water would be clear and blue again, lopped willi little white caps edged in pink ... "I'll go for you," she said finally. I "I guess it would be silly not to go." An hour later s-hc was ashore [wishing Dick were wilh her. Department A Store was erowded to capacity wilh passengers from Ihe. 1 Empress, shopping for English doeskins mid Scottish tweeds ami Wedgewood potleries. But Uic greatest number was at the glove counter, where doeskins that sold tor $4 in New York might be picked up for $2. Leaving Ihe slore, Joyce walked up the hill toward the center of town, idling away the hour unlil the lasl lender lefl for the ship. .She strolled through the gardens of the Bcrnmdiana Hotel again, enjoying their colorful and well- I planned beauty; she passed the ' governor's mansion ;md she visited the quaint little Porluguosf: church, And alt Ihc while she looked above the heads of passersby for a sight of Dick's turbulent brown curls. But she looked in vain, Noi' did she see him in Ihc crowd on Ihe wharf waiting for Ilic lender. Mr. Gregory was' there, standing apart from Ihc others, and he joined her. "If I'tl known you were coming ashore alone," ho remarked pleasantly, "we might have done something together." Joyce laughed. "I've been shopping, and I know you wouldn't liavc enjoyed thai." A little colored boy approached them, his arms laden with enormous bouquets of sweet peas. "Flowers f dc lady, boss?" "Why nolV" Mr. Gregory responded promptly. "How much?" 'Twenty-it' cents, boss." "Cheap enough. J think I'lU take the white ones . . . that's it." He held them out to Joyce. "Wear them for me, with that lovely while frock of yours, will you?" Joyce Ihankecl him, admiring the wax-like perfection of the (lowers. Bui her eyes clouded at tlic reminder of the lovely white frock Ihnf was no more, and .she buried her face in the soft fragrance ot the bouquet. Evidently Mr. Gregory had not heard of their little adventure ... While they were crossing tlic harbor, he asked her suddenly: "Would you care to spend the evening in Havana with me, Miss Milner? There's a great deal to do, I nm told, wilh an agreeable companion." But she begged olt ciuickly. "I'm so sorry, Mr. Gregory. I've already made an engagement . . ." Slic knew thai she was refusing the invitation solely in Ihe hope Ihnl Dick would 1 ask her. She might still he left silling on the Empress all alone, a target for Mr. Gregory's sympathy.
