For the Finest Prescription Service DRUG STORE XZl Wett »Uln XXI D UDY and Victor were unloading the truck. Crates, barrels, metal cylinders, batteries, boxes were slacked in the sand. Mrs. Everson seemed to b« supervising the job. She sat on one of the crates, displaying her beautiful legs, and checked off the supplies on a typewritten list, When Victor eame into the kitchen at 5 o'clock, he seemed morose. Mrs. Everson, he said, had decided that all the stud must be re-loadetl in the morning and hauled out o( the river-bed into the forest. The big trailer would be shifted, too.'Mrs. Malone wondered why. Victor was very tired. "Strange weather," he said. **It makes my head ache, and 1 have a pain behind my eyes." "Maybe it's happened!" Mrs. Malone cried. Her heart seemed to catch, to stumble, to turn over. "No," Victor said. "I thought of that. The radio is just as usual Bob Hop* is on. The audience is Jaughing and whistling." Dinner was ready to servt 7 o'clock, but Mrs. Everson was 10 minutes late. When she appeared she was dressed as if for a stale banquet or an opening night at the opera. She wore a dress made of pale gold lace, cut very low lo display her smooth, strong shoulders. Her hair had been brushed and burnished; she had twisted it inlo a sort of one-sided coronet, a barbaric ornament in itself. Around her throat, descending in three strands across the splendor of her breast was a necklace if square emeralds. Diamond and merald bracelets clasped both arms, so thai with every gesture ilie seemed to scatter sparks. Her eet were lightly shod in gilt sandals, the toes bare and enameled, .he heels tinted. FRECKLES AND HIS FRIENDS B\ ME&KILL BLOSSEB G»t Hot, Lads -OR A PHONY \ WHY WOT? OlOMV "Florence feels »o out of things—*ll her friends at camp ha»« had terrible experiences and she hasn't even been rescued from drowning!" VICTOR, returning with the service plates, reported Mrs. magnificence to Mrs. Iverson's Watone. "Try to see, if you canl There they sit, conversing, as if they were in Paris or New York. She :ias half a million, in jewels on her fingers!" He struck his forehead with the back of his hand. "Her perfume, Malone! It smells of ginger flowers and sandal wood and jasmine. All for what?" "Maybe Rudy—? Here, the soup . . .** Later Victor brought * .compliment: "She says the ragout is- excellent." "It's not a ragout," Mrs. Malone said sharply.. She felt dizzy and ill-tempered. . The heat out-of- doors had penetrated the trailer in spite of Ihe cooling system. "I cooked the rabbit Die way the French cook Belgian hare, with wine and spices. But stie wouldn't know the difference." MOMENT later she heard the A MOM ^* festive pop of a champagne cork. "They are Drinking toasis," Vic- tor reported. "To her. To our arrival. To the future. She is very excited about something. Her eyes are on fire. Her hand trembles." "Maybe lo morrow . . ." Mrs. Malone began. "Maybe tonight!" Victor said. At last the meal was over, the dishes washed and put away. Mrs. Everson and the Marchese sal with lilltc silver-lustre cups, sipped black coffee as thick as syrup and smoked; and Listened to Pin/a singing "Mattinala," to Trenet, to a magnificent recording o( "L* Sacre du Printemps." The cloying humidity made Mrs. Ma lane's uniform cling lo her body. She changed into a clean dress before going back to the small trailer for her own dinner. As she stepped outside, she felt the blackness of the night like an enfolding and smothering blanket. She stood for a moment in the absolute dark, listening. The music came faintly from inside the trailer, and once she heard Mrs. Everson'a laughter, deep-throated, cruel. It was strange, but as she stood | there Mrs. Maione could sense the great wall of mountains beyond the forest- It seemed to her that she could comprehend their svib- stance, their form, the processes of their evolution. The deep pressures at the core of the eartii, gathering to resist the blow that was about to fall. The unimaginable atoms, molecules, geological structures about lo be torn from their ancient order, Would the mountain rampart stand? Or would there be a finality for all things?
