His long, flexible fingers moved 'lovingly over the ornate and massive tea service that had been prc- unted to Madame by the Grand Duke Boris. ; i "Good morning, Sir Charles,' .Vicky said, sitting down to tall' •to him They were good friends i'^Isn't. this a wonderful place? hcye you slept as well as 1 did in ttaJA heavenly salt air." ^ "I shall never again in *IUe sleep ns ^ycll as you do," he ^Eaid 'Good morning. .You.seem •..pleased with yourself for a. gir ,lacmg v & long),dull summer'iii thi •;provinces." r" ' | Vicky sat down on~«~wtncjov ••seat, hugging her knees, and hei phoney-colored hair iell aroum 'her cheeks "Oh, I don't thin tit's going to be so bad after al JGranny down yet?" V "She's in. the studio, sitting Jo Marcel" t "Poor Granny! And on a won [derful day like this. Wouldn [it be nice for her if we could EC 'Marcel interested in painting th .»c«nery around Goose Neck?' J Sir Charles looked at her quiz Efcally. "You've been rather in fcntsted in it yourself, this morn haven't you? I never knew ou to start ort for a walk quite so urly." "Well," sold Vicky in a reason- jlc tone of voice, "there's no use laving New York for the sum- ler it you don't get outdoors." I never yet saw you leave the ouse by yourself. Or at least, if ou did, you didn't come back by ourself." «•>, ..vr£V * * • ' .-"ti;M<Sl 7"ICKY examined her small, 1 scarlet feet. "1 haven't been •Hiking exactly by myself." "No?" ••— "No, I just happened to meet no of our new neighbors." The butler smiled. _"Young, 1 uppose?" "Mm-hmm." } "Male?" "Mm-hmm." * "And good-looking?" '* "Mm-hmm. Sir Charles, ""• low I think I might hnv * ileasant summer after all. A very jle.isant summer." "If: you ever see him again, 1 aid Sir Charles. "Probably you lon't even know his name." "Yes, I do. His name is Snltc: Bagot. Only everyone calls hin •ally." Sir Charles laid clown his chnm ois. "Salter Bagol! Good Lori. Vicky, don't tnkc him seriously. 'IVIiO said anything about bcln serious?" ^_. .. He looked at her soberly 'You're bound to get serious some day." He sighed a little and sak liesilant and witli im unusual dil fidence of manner. "Victoria, 1 hat to say this to you, but . I dou want you be hurt. This—Bago doesn't sound like your sort at al Watch out. After he meets yov grandmother, and Marcel, and or thing or another, he may not wai lo come and see you." ,-.v -^"Why in the world not?" asko Victoria, astonished, "Evcryboc wants to see Grandmother.

"That's absurd, Sir Churles," Icky said flatly, "llnlf tlic world, as always lloclted around Granny, ml you know it. Not only in 'ranee, but in tliQ hotel in New r ork—" "/-"eop/e who aren't related fo nch other are expected to live in olelf," said Sir Charles dryly. And anyway, New York is one g, New England another. New "nglnndcrs arcai't like the people ou'vc known." < Victoria sat back and looked Ircnmily out nt the flower giir- len. "I've only met one Nuw Inglandcr so far," she said, thinking of Sally's pleasant, cheerful nd humorless face. "And he jeitninly isn't quile like anyone else I've known." j 'All right," said Sir Charles. 'T only wanted to warn you. A girl like you, who's been brought up to do as she pleases, can't be 00 careful. You're likely to get nirl running around with people- who've led a sheltered life." ^ 'Don't forget," said Vicky (iiouglilfully, "Granny herself came from these parts originally." "Yos," Sir Charles agreed, "and 1 think her conscience has been bothering her ever since." | Victoria twisted herself off the window sill ntul left him, displeased with the turn the conversation had taken. { "Vicky!" Sir Charles called after lie. 1 :. "Is this boy in the Anny or Navy?" _. | She stopped in the hall. "I never thought of that," she admitted, "He wasn't dressed any special way." She went on slowly, considering the probable relationship of Salty and the government. (To Be Continued) , For Limited Time 4% LOANS OH FARM LANDS On medium size uml kirire tracts. No extras.
