Every member of the household demanded eggs cooked o dillerent way. Marcel compared everything he nlc to the most delicious breakfast he ever " remembered having eaten. Sir Charles usually forgot to pass anything to Godfrey, who would remedy the omission by banging on his water glass with a knife. There was invariably an argument, at ' luncheon and at dinner, about who should sit next to Sophie, until Basil suggested taking turns, after which there was nn argument about whose turn it was. When Bridget brought Sophie's " tray downstairs, today's breakfast was just over. Basil had already left the room to play some Chopin " in the drawing room before start: ing. to work on his book.

Godfrey was alone in the dining room with coiTec and cigarcts. *" Bridget, open-faced, pink- cheeked and smiling, came in to clear the breakfast table. Although she was a woman of perhaps 40, she seemed like a mere slip of a girl in Sophie's household. She spoke to Godfrey with kindly respect. "Good morning, Mr. Matis- bridge." "Good morning, Bridget," re' plied the old gentleman, convcn- . tionally enough. "It's a lovely day, sir," Bridget • wont on cheerfully. "Will it dis- | turb 1 you if I clear?"

"Sophie' icart is too big to break ove rifles." "Well," said Sir Charles. "1'n lamncd if I'll stand around an watch you makim; a foot ot your self." 'You need not," Godfrey sai sarcastically. "And anyhow wha I choose to mnkc of myself is in own lookout." Sir Charles walked around tl table and caught Godfrey's ^hou der, twi-iting him in his chai "Ever since I've known Soplii I've watched hz: ec'.inf? her hca out over you, while you playc around in corners: with any everyone.
