Mrs. Malone listened in, when she could, on hts nmazing reminiscences, and discovered that, far from boasting of the hospitality of monarchs, potentates and viceroys, he considered their friendship due his rank. He had taken in his stride coronations, durbars, maneuvers and consistories. In fact, he seemed to have sat in, as guest, at all the glitter and splendor of the international pageant, the great spectacle of the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries. In his heyday, she learned, the Marchese had owned three bouses: one in London, another at Cap Per at, a third at Fiesole. The :iouse in London was now a hole :n the ground. The villa at Cap Feral had been shelled to powder. And the Renaissance palace had taken a direct hit during the siege of Florence. The Marcnese belonged now to Mrs. Everson. It was his job to leach her manners, to feed her the double-talk of the drawing room, to show her, if he could, how to behave with servants, diplomats, petty officials or trades- people, and how to speak French without sounding like a schoolgirl. The Oklahoma waitress who had married the old man took it all in, loo, soaked it up like a posloffice blotter. !"F the world's going to be blown up any minute," Mrs. Mnlone said to the Marches*, the second morning at breakfast, "what's the use of knowing how lo introduce a counless to a duke or a Prime Minister to a Secretary of State?" The Marchese smiled. "It will start all over again," he explained, "Suppose, for example, ther* are 10 or 15 groups of survivors in the United States. Sooner or later they will come together and establish a government, then a system o/ precedence, and finally a society. It is jtist as well to be prepared." "What good's Mrs. Everson's money? It won't buy anything." "But her jewels will," the Marchese said. "Barter, my dear Malone! Consider the Black Market in Europe after the war. Then multiply it by 10,000 and you will have some idea of our superior position after the dust settles and the mountains cool off . , ." He smiled again. "The possibility enchants me," he said. "You see, I am a congenital Tory. The decline of the aristocracy saddened me profoundly because 1 found their way of life both picturesque and essentially workable. The knights and ladies, the great houses, the pageantry and trndition, I believe the middle classes liked it, too. They were happier serving the privileged than they ever have been on the dole. But then . . ." He shrugged his shoulder*. ivnpHE malcontents and the envious have never realized that if the wealth of th« world were divided up between every man, woman and child, no one would lave enough for an ermine coat," tie went on, "And so the trappers an<i furriers v.'ould be out of jobs. Also no one would have enough (or jewels; and so the miners, goldsmiths, designers and jewel merchants would all go down—and the architects too, since no one could build fine house. And the dressmakers, since aprons would be the standard of chic, "Hut you follow me! It is perhaps just ?s well that the end is coming. One great explosion, and the matter is settled ... at least temporarily." One treat explosion! It seemed to Mrs. Malone that never had the world been more beautiful than now. The nights especially, when the trailers drew off the road and parkea, and the silence came light-footed out of the dark. Nev-^r had the sky so swarmed with stars—a vast canopy of powdered ice, the Milky Way, the immense, round planets, blue Sinus, ruddy Mars, th« Bear, the Dipper . . . After dinner >*•* walked alonf the paved road, lelting the marvel of existence flow through her consciousness. How wonderful th« stars! ' How wonderful the dark! How wonderful the earth smells brought on short puffs of warm wind across the plain! In the distance the lonely aerial beacons flashed red, flashed white, guiding the swift transport planes thst shot like projectiles across th* continent. Occasionally the Keadh^its ot .. car approached, b!a?.ed and p?vrcd, the red tail lights diminishing, vanishing . . . One great explosion!
