"I told you there w«re large building opera'.-ont here. There was much blasting necessary. Four workmen were killed, and buried." "But the flowers? There are Iresh flowers on one grave." "Flowers? Oh. The fishermen of course. They're ignorant and superstitious. 1 even had * little trouble with them after the premature blast killed the men. Something about wanting a priest and hallowed ground. But it doesn't pay to pamper. . . . But we're getting away from the point. There is no room or reason for fear here. There must be a mu- tuai trust. One of you may join with me in beginning the Speare Islam! dynasty." Agnes Firth drew herself up stiffly. "You've pointed out how old we are. Have you thought it might be a trifle late for us to help you in that project?" Harding looked blank. "Speak for yourself, honey," Lilly Warrtn said. "Just apeak tor yourself." Agnes wilted. "I'd best get back to the theep. I— I'm sorry I was so silly." "Very well," Harding said. "And don't worry too much about the sheep. They know their way around."

Can't make up her mind whether lo be glad, sad or mad." • • « J) WRING the next d'ays, life on Speare Island began to assume form without as yet attaining a routine. There were some jolts in the shaking down process. Lilly Warren, in the course of her duties, found underwear, night clothes, shoes and stockings among the nippliei and handed them out according to her own ideas. Bea had no reason (or complaint Agnes accepted hers without question. Mabel Jones looked af ^hen and took them to Harding. "Mr». Warren's a poor judge of size," the said. "Couldn't I have some that fit?" Of course," he said. "There's I -Save ,• Time* Money* • • ! Plant Sinkers i ACID-DEL1NTED I Cotton Seed | L. K. ASHCRAFT CO.

Bea noticed Harding did snend more and more lime wilh Lilly, bhe noticed, too, her roommate talked less and less at light. Agnes Firth tended her sheep with an attention and grim deier- mlnation which left her exhausted .'it the end of each day. At dinner one night she said, "1 can't understand. I and the sheep the best Krass. I drive them there. Then they won't eat, but wander away and start eating somewhere else " She was so serious about it Bea Cosgrove tried to inject levity You should be used to that sort nf thing from your former work." ' What do you mean?" "Well." Bea said lightly, -a social service worker should be nc- cnstorned to the lack of interest her flock finds in the greener pas- lures she picks out (or them." • • • j:jENRY HARDING Uiouglil that funny, bul one glance at Miss firth's stricken (ace made l)c» sorry for her words. Agnes left Ihe table abruptly, rushed from the room. Mabel Jones worked hard in the garden, proved Ihe truth of her statement about her green thumb. Under her interest end cars the vegetables appeared to grow and fatten overnight. Every morning Harding went to a small stone outbuilding, unlocked it, and turned Ihe valve which sent the strenm of water Bowing through the pipe to the fishermen's camp. That accomplished to accurate timing, a further adjustment ot .valves sent water flowing through the intricate system of irrigation ditches in the flelds. Mabel Jones volunteered to take over the duty of .tending the valves. "No," Harding snapped. "I will lell you your duties. The water is mine to give is I see IH!"
