"Be on guard, my friend. Take care." A doctor came and tried to be non-committal, but Alan took him to his own room with the barred wmdowi. "Let's have this straight Doc. I know this isn't fever. So what is it?" The doctor pursed his Dps. -I find, Monsieur, an acute irritation of the gastro-intestinal tract." "Is that your way of saying poison?" The doctor hedged. "One cannot on-hand make so serious a statement. Monsieur. One must have samples, one must analyze" . "Okay, then. Let's take him to ihe hospital." The doctor shrugged as though to shrink up within his shoulders. He looked this way and that and out of the window. At last he said: "Monsieur, I must speak frankly. This Monsieur Benoit is well known to have taken considerable interest in the affairs of this country, not aj « politician, but *i a patriot, for which I ad- mlrt him, since I too may claim myself as one. In our hospital you must understand, some of our nurses are natives, some are-Eurasians, > very few are European.

Alan's jaw and shoulder muscles bunched up together. "Thanks for the straight «ope," he said! And through his teeth, "We'll keep him in his room here. And any fence sitter who may happen along will be another patient of yours. And I know where to get a nurse I can trust." He tapped his finger on the doctor's chest.

Stop. We need you. stop.? Sh« was there that evening. She walked unannounced into the hotel. Alan, sitting alone outside at Benoit s door, saw her come briskly down the passage, fresh and indisputably white and worried; and all his own worry drained away from him. He no longer felt alone. He impetuously hugged her She was unused to American enthusiasm. She pushed him away saying Jn her precise English •Less demonstration and more explanation, please." Alan told her the whole story.

Since he had wickedly talked about sacred-things the dragon had not eaten his befouled flesh, just smashed him and let him die. 'I'm wondering," Alan said grimly, "how much photographing they'll .tanri for before they'll guess I'm snooping?" Lucy reiterated Benoit's conviction.
