She performed one duty after another., taking /great pains, making certain that she did not think beyond the gesture of the moment. Mrs. Everson, on the other hand, was gay, jubilant, even animated. Mrs, Malone could hear her laughing outside as sh« joked with Rudy. Wherever the handsome, swarthy fellow was, there too was the woman whose money had attracted him. They exchanged long, bold, challenging looks. other guess. What they said to each Mrs. Malone could only But she did guess.

She was in possession of Rudy's secret; she knew his past Vet she had accepted that Mrs. Everson's orders left her little time for watching the pair. The menu for the gala dinner called for six courses: savory. soup, entree, salad, dessert, coffee. Victor spent most ol Ihe day polishing silver and pressing napery of incredibly fin« linen and delicate lace. * • • 'HOWARD noon the Marchese came out of his room. He made himself comfortable on the sola, mt on • pair of horn-rimmed spectacles and began to read. Mrs. Malone had the impression thai he was quite unaware of Victor's presence, or o( her own. But once, when Victor had gone out to bring water from the spring, sh* broke through the Marchese's bland preoccupation with a flash ot temper. 'I don't see how you can sit there reading, when may be the world's blowing up right this minute and millions of people are suffering and dying!" He removed the spectacles anc allowed her to enler the focus of his far-sighted eyes. "The world?" he repeated. "My world no longer exists except in the mind and the imagination— and in books like this one. As reality it has already perished And so have I." **I don't know what you' ing about!" she cried. The Marchese closed the book and slipped it back into its place on the shelf. "I'm sorry," he said. *Tm afrai' 1 was thinking aloud. You see Malone, I inherited a code, a way of life lhat is now obsolete. That' what I meant when I said lhat had already perished." He looked around the narrow him and trusted him. belonged to her.

Mrs. Malone stifled a retort. "Can I do your room now, sir?" she asked primly. "If you please." While she was making up his bed, she lifted the melal window blind and saw that the sunlight had changed. There were no clouds in the sky above the river. At least there were no cloud shapes. Rather Ihe zenith itself seemed to have darkened. There was no wind.' Not a teal of the forest stirred. Yet the whole visible landscape v,';\s suddenly caught into a sort of breathless and brooding shadow, as if a gigantic shape had passed between the earth and the noon-day sun.
