Claire Fosdick stood in the luxuriously furnished library and looked about licr with a. shudder. Almost as though she half expected some menacing horror lo reach out from the familiar shadows and'clutch her: Then she jerked herself together with an effort. Over there, by his favorite lamp, his body had been found, slumped forward in an unnatural, twisted position. Shc could sec it yet, though shc had tried to forget. The death certificate had said heart trouble, and there had been no autopsy. Nick Baum had managed that for her. But always in the back of Claire's mind would be (he question—why luid her father died so unexpectedly? lie had seemed as well as usual when she bade him goodnight and left him chatting with Nick. And Nick had said (hat when he left at 11 o'clock Mr. Fosdick walked lo the door with him and seemed in the best of spirits. ,Yet lie was gone, and now Claire was alone with the wreck of the family fortune. 'This cily liousc and llic mountain properly were about all thai was left, and she knew only too well that Nick Baum had claims on both. Her father's words came back to her. "Wo must pay Nick by '.his time next month, Daughter." "Bui, Daddy," she hat! exclaimed. "Surely Nick will—" "You don't underslaml, child. Nick has been moic than lenient. I couldn't ask him lo extend the lime again. We've got to find tile money somehow." But how? Wearily Claire inventoried again her chances of supplying n large sum of money in a limited space of time. Trained for nothing but a society life, lacking money that seemed as far distant as llic snow-capped mountain peaks, what could she do? As though in answer to her problem, the door behind her opened and a tall young man came eagerly tow.ird her and took both her cold hands in his. "Nick! I—I didn't know you were here. I didn't hear you come in." "Because 1 came through the garden. Cut across from the garage. The maid opened the French window for me.

"Well then, you don't have to." "But I know Daddy hoped I would, Hannah. Nick was very close to him. had even loaned him a lot of money, and we can't pay it back." Listen, child," Hannah broke in.
