Mrs, Everson purchased most of the storekeeper's stock ol stale chocolate bars, soap, twine, pop, cereals and canned fish. The old fellow wanted tu know where they were going, but got no answer— only one of Mrs. Everson's marble- blue stares. The Marchese, dressed as if for izauon. Here Uiere was ai leasx telephone, » stretch of pavement, a garage, a fly-specked "ho- el" advertising rooms ai 50 cents night, dinner SI. Beyond, for 75 miles, the shin- ng procession moved cautiously long a dirt road that leemed to ak* its own wilful way, climbing teadily as it pierced narrow, fer- ile valleys or emerged into long stretches of arid land. At one moment they were among trees, the next they were slowing heavily through sand And always, in the distance, a wall of tumbled mountains grew imperceptibly nearer and higher • • • T ATE in the afternoon the trajl ers entered a beautiful, wooded canyon, narrow between higl walls. The sun touched only the topmost russet rims. Below, where a shallow and crystal-clear stream meandered in a wide, boulcier- strewn bed, everything seemed bathed in green light. Birds were the beach Cannes, inspected the dusty shelves, admiring faded bolls of cotton-cloth and trnys full , of cheap combs, as if he were \ shopping at Car-tier's. "Very nice," he said. "Very smart." For himself be bought a pair of gloves lined with lamb's wool, and a hunter's cap with a visor like a duck's bill. Mrs. MR lone realized that it was his kindly impulse to please the old. storekeeper, who might have suspected these ele- flashing high up, their wings catching the lasl gold of the sun. Presently the canyon walls drew back, leaving space for a miniature forest. The caravan tockexi and bumped through this for some little distance, then dipped steeply into the river-bed. At this point the stream made a hairpin turn around a large sand-spit. And here, on this sand-spit, at last, they stopped for good. • • * TVTRS. MALONE 1 S first reaction 1YI was one O f great happiness, the upper level of her mind taking time out for a brjef holiday from apprehension. It was as if she had «nteted new dimension, where s a dream, yel with «one of a ream's vague terror. Here was n!y peace, a deep satisfaction^ an xauisite sense of safety. The river-bed was strewn with boulders and silvery-dry branches ind logs. On either side the forest stood straight and tall, forming aisles and arches, shadowy corridors into mystery. And all about hem, now, loomed the mountains. There was no time to explore the terrain before night closed down. It turned cold beneath the stars, and SOOD after dinner everyone went to bed. Mrs. Mulonc lay in the purple-blue darkness, conscious of the release from tension, her body relaxed, listening to the ceaseless rush and plash of the stream. Soon she fell asleep, and slept all night as a child sleeps who knows it is surrounded by love. The last thing she thought was: "I'm glad 1 came. This is won- der/uJ. Wonderful . .

A mysterious beauty en£olde<i this refuge; it was as haunting!? unreal ol making permanent camp. There were many things to b« done, but the ftrsi thing, which assumed prime importance to Mrs. Everson, was the location of the trailers. She decided to leave the big trailer, which was her home, on the sandy point in the river bed. . This trailer was jacked up by Rudy and Victor and resettled on strong supports. Next Victor drove the small trailer and the sedan to higher ground, overlooking the river bed, a little distance away in the woods- It would be necessary for Rudy, Victor and Mrs. Malone to scramble up and down the bank to go from one trailer to the other. The truck, until unloaded, waj to remain where it had stopped.
