She did not hesitate. She pushed the door open and started inside. Henry Harding sat at a smaV desk writing in a large, leather- bound notebook. Bea had time to notice the neat white cot, the c of rifles, the single hard chair, before the man whirled to face h«r "Spying?" he demanded. "You left the door open," ! said Hatly. Harding got h«r outside by the simple process of walking towarc her until she hsd to retreat. H managed a smile. "You startlec me. For the time being 1 must as you—and the others—to conside this tower room u exclusively m own." "Certainly. But wouldn't M b« .simpler 11 you toW us where w can and cannot go!" "It's simpler than that," Hard Ing said. "In the future I'll be more careful of locks." 'pHE week ended with Bea Cos grove unable to find a safe hiding place for her automati She knew from the rate of suga consumption it would be week before it would be found b chance, and the spot was ac cessible.

Let 1 see. You haven't been around th island much, have you? 1 ' "I've barely been out of th house." ''Before we start gelling read for the wind, we'll walk down t the fishermen's camp. Thai's a ba shore in a blow." They followed the trail the fish ermen had taken, west and norti Scarcely out of sight o! the house Harding stopped, turned Aside 1 the four grave* with Ihcir nea erosse*. He walked directly to the Mo ering plant on the grave bearin e name. A. Rob!*, and ntuck his iger in the dirt at It: roots.

There was a ramshackle lean-to of driftwood with tatters of canvaa Sapping in the strengthening wind. There was a smull of fish, and a more penetrating odor of human habitation. Bea turned away from the water when she heard Hardlni iwearlni viciously. She Joined him at the natural basin which held the daily allotment o( water for Ihe flsher- men. "The devllst" Harding sputtered. "They were nippoaed to let nM know when they left They've let me waste dayi of water."' The ilrong Ash odor wai explained as she reached his side. Four dark browp fish about 1ft inches long lay side by side, half- in and balf out of the water. They were pegged through the laminae on the top of their heads to the scant sand. Pegged with wooden stakes with a crossbar lashed with fishline into the form of a crude crosa. : Harding kicked the crouea into the pool. "The devils!" h* repeated.
