"Hello, Salty," said Vicky. she possessed perfect sclf-confl- ! device wus her appearance; she as imself-coascioiJK jibout it s a kitten. The expression on the ace of the young man us he fjot a good look at her skin nud eyes was not at all unexpected. "Macinnic van Eyck's house?" nsked. "Yes; she's my grandmother." "I'm Snlter Bngot. Everyone calls me Sally, though." "Hello, Salty." "Say—-I forgot to ask your name." "Victoria." Your last name, too. You're „, breathless, child's voice. "Does this'path take me to the lighthouse?

It was obvious he was already her victim,>and she thonght it liuci been almost too easy. "Anyway," she said, "I'm known ns Jenkins, v.-hich was my father's name, Tliat!s the name I go by— Vicky Jenkins. Sly mother was Sophia van Eyck's only child." "Sophie van Eytk!" he exclaimed in reverence. "1 can't believe she's right lierc, like an ordinary next-door neighbor. She's a legend in our house. It's almost like meeting someone out of the Bible." "Well," Vicky said. "I'll lie going on home now. Maybe I'll sec you again." "I thought you were on your way to the lighthouse," he said. t * * "VTCKY remembered she had asked the way there. "Oh, not today," she said without changing expression. "I sfmply asked if this (he path. T thought I'd walk over there when I have more time. U r ell, goodby." He obviously wanted to detain :icr but did not quite know how. "Goodby," he said, a little wistfully. She was nearly out of sight ,vhen he was inspired. "Vicky! Would .von-—what nbout goiug to the movies with me tonight?" She turned on the path. "All right," she said eagerly, like a little girl. What would be a convenient time today for me to call on your grandmother?" "Oh, Salty, do you have to come today? I know she'd love to see you but—" "But you promised to go to the movies with me tonight!" "I know 1 did, only yon dop.'fc want to take Grandmother too, flu* you?"

"Well, f hardly think it necessary. She'd probably be surprised if you did." He looked pleased. "It is tiuick, isn't it? But, that's the way I am,: Vicky." : I Vicky laughed appreciatively, with just a trace of apprehension. Perhaps she had overplayed. This was going a little faster than she had planned and might even get out of control.
