XXIII T^HE heat, even at this time of night, was still oppressive, but Mrs. Malone shivered. Quickly she made her way to the trailer caught the hand-rails and pulled herself up into the bluish gloom of trie entry. The salon door was open am she saw that the Marches* was Jying on the sofa. A bucket containing ice and a bottle of champagne stood on the floor within reach. His eyes were open; hi 'was listening now to a recording of Kespighi's "Pines of Rome," "Come here, Malone," he said. *Yes, »ir." **Do you hear that? The Janicu- lum. 1 was born in Rome. Sixty years ago. Listen. The nightin gales in the ilex groves. Have you ever been there?" "No, sir," "Beautiful. Sad and lonely and aunted. Once you have seen j .ome, you carry it with you for- i vet in your mind and heart. ! Crumbling. Rich as old Ivory. Old ... old . . ." "Is there anything more I can o?" Mrs. Malone said. H Oh. No. No—nothing. Good ght, Malone." In spite of the throttling heat, he closed the door of her cubicle, in-dressed and lay down on top of he covers. tjRS. MALONE must have slept L *- a an hour, perhaps. She awoke vith a start to hear the roaring of a motor res as the and the grinding of fought the sand for Taclion. Slie sal xip. reaching for icr robe. The truck! was driving it awayl She groped with her bare feet, found her slippers, ran to the which thai single hair-raising scream had come. "Mrs. Everson!" he shouted. , The round spot of intense light from his flash swung, wavered, paused, and Mrs. M alone saw Mrs. Everson stumbling out of the forest. "What }s the matter?* the Marehese asked. He came up behind Mrs. Malone. "Mrs. Everson . . ." she began. • * • r PHE Marehese pushed her aside, ran down the steps and started across the stream. Mrs. Malone fumbled along the wall, found Ihe switch punch The lights came on. bright and steady and reassuring door. Standing on the top step she eaned forward to look. The lightning had increased now to an almost continuous flickering and dancing of blue fire. By this un- loly light Mrs. Malone could see the great unwieldy shajje of the truck lurch[ng toward the bank. Gears crashed violently, and of a sudden the headlights bored into the forest. The truck climbed, rocked, straightened out and roared off in a diminishing thunder of exhaust. "Victor!" Mrs. Malone called. "Victor!" She was answered by a shriek that came from the direction of th* falls. Her blood froze. Animal or human? The sound ripped the silence like tearing a cloth. Mrs. Malone felt it in her teeth, along her spine; it was both a screech and a wail, a demon sound. "Victor!" Mrs. Mslone cried again, i She saw him running with flashlight through the sand. Then he seemed fairly to leap across the stream in the direction from after the tumult outsider Then Someone Victor and the Marehese appeared ilh Mrs. Everson between them.

They cnrried Mrs. Everson into Ihe salon and put her down on the sofa, piling the satin cushions under her head. With scratched, shaking hands she tried to hold the small glass ol brandy to her lips. Her teeth chattered against the rim, and the liquid spilled down into her bosom. "Rudy . , ." she gasped. "He tried to kill me. He got the jewels. He's gone." "I will go after him in the car," Victor said. "I can make it faster lhan he can. 1 will Eell the police and they will slop him." Mrs. Everson 'shook her head. She looked up at the Filipino with a strange, unreadable expression. "No," she said. "You mustn't go. It is too late. You wouldn't come back. And 1 need you here." {To Be Concluded) On Second Thought SEE HOW INVITING AND FRIENDLY BY AL VERMEER LAWN VIC FLINT It's Alex Again BY MICHAEL O'ftlALLEY and RALPH LANE OUGHT ENOUGH AWAY SO I COUlDN'l BE TRACED.
