Some of the younger monks—he had seemed almost shocked—had money in their hands. "To touch money is. prohibited," Lucy quickly explained. "That's why the monks, when they go out with their begging bowls, ar« ac- compa nled by 1 ay brothers who may accept cash offerings," "VroomE" said Alan. "H* knew we'd been there. He doesn't miss a bet, that devil." However, the servant went on to say, when Alan would come again, photographing, h« would try to point out spots as he thought likely for the hiding place. He would drop his rosary of till seeds or would slip his sandal or something. He would have to be careful because he thought he was already under suspicion. Everybody was all keyed up since the hoopoes had been heard calling unnaturally at night. Many people would die, the hoopoes said. The servant mumbled a blessing over the jungle men who gawped with bugging eyes, and he went sombrely or his pseudo-monkish way. "Yeah," Alan breathed. "Guets people will die before this ruckufi is settled." The doctor cam*. He nodded up provingly at two sturdy, smelly jungle men who squatted ki the corridor MI blank patience, their presence accepted by the hotel, according to the custom established by the patrons, of personal room service at call. Benoit was sleeping under his previously administered hypo. The doctor pored over him, tenderly felt him over, listened to his breathing. He nodded. He complimented Lucy. "Charmed, Mademoiselle, that you have taken this case. You will assist me, please, in taking a blood or the lest. My previously analy- is indicates the lairs in the food. bamboo joint both away. For Alan this was almost a holiday after the tension of watchful worrying, and he was persuading himself thai the girl, • too, was ready for a light-nearted outing. The ricksha strike was still on; but. as happens lo strikes, scabs had hitched decrepit ponies, even goats, to double ricksha shafts and were charging exorbitant prices ported to the police, who will presently be disturbing all the hotel with their fooHsri investigations that prove always nothing. The more important is the guard to as- ;ure no repetition. His diet, therefore, will be only such broths as you prepare personally out of canisters. It will be wise that you sleep at least this night within the room. I venture my opinion that our patient's disability, while severe, ic only temporary." He bowed and bustled away down the long passage. "Like the white rabbit," Lucy i!d. His diagnosis had enormously relieved her. OUT Alan was frowning out oC the window into the last of the wet hazy sun. "All of which," he ruminated half to himself, ""confirms m> guess that they figured to tay him off a spell while I fuddled along alone." "Not entirely alone." Lucy looked at him steadily—and warily ready to feutS off his exuberance. He was therefore limited to saying, "Lucy—I mean, Miss Villiers —I know a stuffy English expression. You're champion fine." She said, "It's not English. It's Scot*." The flne distinction was beyonc Alan's understanding; though weV within it was the girl's suddenly shy suggestion that she had never seen the Vat Prah Keo of the Emerald Buddha and when the patient would be well enough am when Alan would be going again to photograph, she would like to accompany him. Alan's guess that things were about ready to pop began to nn< grizzly confirmation. Though on the next day nothing popped; anc on the day following that Benoi was well enough to shoo them I have so re- almost as high as taxis. A few ""* " cars were available, bul a horse- drawn ricksha, they decided, wa? far more picturesque. At a corner of the picture gallery of horrors within the courtyard wall of the temple a mob tood. Not a seething or a milling mob, as might have been the case n America. A close packed crowa of natives standing still and star- ng with their impassive Mongo- oid eyes, A monk came and ipread them away with his hands o make a path for the American ourist to photograph so choice a memento of his travels. Lucy sucked back a thin scream. • * * PICTURED on the temple wall as one of the penalltes'inflicted upon followers of the wicked giant Ravana was a crew of monkeys .wisting a man's limb into excruciating shapes and dragging his :ongue out lo a horrid length, and pinning it so with thorns, The thing that the crowd stared at so impassively was a man stripped as naked as the has reliel and spiked up against it in the identical posture, his limbs twistea and broken to fit. His tongue. which had asked too many questions, could not be drawn out as far as the original conception, but the executioners had done their best on that too. The man was Benoit's servant. Alan took Lucy Villiers by the arm and hurried her away. She was shaking as she said: "We must get back to our patient. If they made him tell them he was his servant—" * "No," Alan said. "They dont need to liquidate Benoit now. Or me, or any of us." His own sense of safety was no relief. It was out-balanced by the worse thing that impended. "They've beaten us to it 1 * (To Be Continued) His First Job Gen. John J. Persbing's first assignment after his graduation from West Point was to be-military Instructor at the University of Nebraska.
