Sophie drew a deep breath be- orc she started to answer. 'Arc you iiuita through, Vic- orin?" she said at last. "J'crhsips household isn't commonplm-c, but it certainly isn't common.

" "I'm sorry," said Vicky firmly, 'hut I can't sec that playing butler year in and year out can be called n real achievement." "But wait!" Sophie ordered. "Then came the triumph he had been working toward all those years, lie was the Admirable Crichlon, Ihe greatest butler of : When he cnmc back from his Australian tour the King knighted him.

"Well," said Vicky, "that must le just about the longest part a.'jy- locly ever played." * » * 'T-TE'LI, play it as long as he can breathe!" Sophie declared, 'lie's one of the fe\v absolutely lappy people I've ever known.

"Yes, ir Charles is one of the few happy >eoplc—not like poor Godfrey -" Sophie had spoken Godfrey Man.sbrklge's name in a tone of icculiar tenderness, but suddenly she snt erect, her mood abruptly Itered, and cried out, "Godfrey!" .caving the chaise she rose in excitement and began rushing bout the room. "Good heavens, Victoria, he'll be here in a few lays, just think! I must look a right. Go and sec if there's any nail, darling," She seated herself n front of her dressing table and :>c0;m undoing her braids. "Gracious!

She looked up in tfie mirror and met Vicky's eyes. "Now don't worry, darling, everything will be all right, I promise." "It's only for a iew more days/' said Vicky. "Of covirsc.
