NOW CO OX WITH THE STOItV CHAPTER XVII fpTlE molor car turned into a -*• wooded lane and ahead, set well hack from (be road, Cclia saw a large white house. Mrs. Parvma waved a hand toward It. "That's llio place," she scld. Then glancing at a wrist watch she added, "we'vo mado good time driving." "ft looks lovely!" Celia murmured. "I'm fond ot it. This is where all my happiest hours have been spent." Evelyn Parsons' voice seemed so sincere, so sweetly brave that sympathy welled In the girl's heart. Slio had been told that Mrs. Parsons was a recent widow. And she had no idea that practically every visitor to Larchwood had heard the same speech about Evelyn's "happiest hours." "Tlie house was named for this double row of trees," Mrs. Parsons explained. "It was built by 1 Dwight's father years ago." Celia, feeling sho was In the presence of grief, remained silent. The car swung into the driveway. Close-cut rolling lawn Etrcichcd to either side and beyond, shading tho rambling colonial house, were more of -the larch tree.:;. Tiiero were hollyhocks, larkspurs and other old-fasliioned flowers at each side of the entrance. Grecu and white striped awnings covered tile windows. Larchwood appeared delightfully hospitable. "What a beautiful home!" Cella Mitchell exclaimed. She was contrasting it mentally with tbe Mitchell's dignified town house. ' -Mrs. Parsons Emiled. The chauffeur was holding the door of the car back for the two to descend. Mrs. Parsons gave him instructions about the bnggape and thea led the way to tbe Louse. A maid In becoming green uniform opined tlic door. "Good mornins. Hilda. Have Ihcro been any telephone messages this morning?" ".S'o, ma'am." •Good! Cclia, Hilda will show you to your room and whenever you're ready, my dear, we'll have luncheon. There arc on a or two housekeeping tasks I must attend to. Shall we £.iy luuchcou nt 1:30?" "Oh, yes—any time. You mustn't bother about me—" "Not tho slightest bother! Take Miss Mitchell upstairs, Hilda." Celia followed the maid. She wan conducted to a cool and airy bedroom on tho second floor. Tlic room was brightly furnished in early American stylo with an old- fashioned four-posted l*cd, small, Sho gavi) mo the address, f liopc ' yo'u'va been haying a line iltuc iu New York, and thai your uew relatives improve on ncqualntauce. 1 haven't got the raise yet. if It Isn't on this week's pay check I'll liavo to Imvo nnotbor colorful rugs, cbalra ami a chest of waliiut. high session with tho M.

It's awfully lonesome here, Honoy. H ll.DA departed and Cella made sure that the door tmd closed securely behind her. Now that slio was alone the girl seemed escltcd. For an instant Bhp listened at the cloov, then swung herself on tlie bed. drawing from her jacket a crumpled object. It was a letter. "Miss Cclia Mitchell. East 21st street. New York," the address read. The handwriting appeared to lie familiar. Cella surveyed It a nioineut. Then she pressed tlic envelope to her heart. She linns her head back. smiliui; ecstatically. Quickly Cella ripped tho envelope open and drew lorlh the !x>ts o! love, folded sheets. Tho smila vanished. Cclia read feverishly: "Dear Celia: i ft was certain.!? a tough break tfiat was haudeil lo me Saturday. Do you know whore I was when your train pulled out? Hall way to Glen Burnlo chasing Joe Park, the guy who escaped from the penitentiary last week. No, we didn't get him, but It was an exciting afternoon. "You see, I bad everything lined up so I could finish early Saturday. Bradford was supposed to take my assignments after three o'clock. I was just about ready to beat it when the tip came in. Morgan yelled at me and said, 'You take this, Shields.' Well, ot course there wasn't any use arguing. "Casey went with me. It was a private tip to tha city editor that Park could Uo found at a house out there where a girl lives he used to be seen with before ho was sent up. All tho papers in town have been playing tbe Park story ail wer-k. It seemed like a hot lead, and we suro burned up the road. Well—that's about all there is to tell. It turned out there wasn't any such house number, nnd after two hours wo decided there wasn't any such girl either. Finally when we called the office Morgan decided' the whole thing was phoney. There was my afternoon gone—and you gone, too! "I called up your mother that evening, but I guess she didu't get my message. Anyhow, I wasn't able to see her until last night, and that's why I couldn't write before. BAItNEY." Thcro was a rnsllc of mot'lo'n-'ln the hallway. Cella Mitchell,-'In tent on tho letter, dhl not hear It Tho Eound wns repeated; then there came a knock at the iloor, "Who's there!" sho demanded. "Your luggage, nin'ain." • • • CHE recognized the' chauffeur's ^ voice. Cella breathed a sigh o relief and tbeu said: "firing tin bags in." Tho interruption reminded tin girl that downstairs Mrs. 1'arsou. woiild bo waiting. Already It wa a quarter after one. She could no resist, however, reading tbn las two paragraphs of Baruey'a lette again beforo she folded it and hi' It away iu her purse. Then with f powder on her nose oho was eady for luncheon. She, anil Mrs. Parsons were tho only two who were present for the meal. Tho other guests, Mrs. Par- nBty pat at her hair and n da sons said, would arrivo tlmt after-, noon and evening. Tlie house seemed even larger, viewed from tho Interior, than out- sids. Oit tho entrance hall there was a buge living room with a fireplace, bookcases nnd a great- ninuy comfortable over • stuffed chairs. Tho dining room, ou tho other side of the house, had bro'tid windows looking out over the garden. Cella glimpsed other rooms opening from those. She wna particularly pleased by the wido porch reached by French windows iu tho living room. Surely if tbc'lionso rjad been built long ago Evelyn Parsons bad done much to modern ize it. "You must do just whatever you like this afternoon," Evelyn sail as dessert was being served. "Kato aud Lisl Duncan are driving over with Walter Carr. They'll be hen any t time.
