And although it may he heresy to suggest it, these people are probably quilc right. Human civilization is a strange growth, and we do not entirely understand how it got started or' how it does manage, in spite of obstacles, to keep progressing; but il is very clear that its base is the worker anil .not the warrior, the man who produces rather than the man who destroys. Civilization, that' is, docs not rest on a base of armies and navies; it rests on the backs of the men who work with their hands, in field or in shop, and it will last just as long as they go on holding it up.

They had deckled lo keep their all-ni«hl vijjit a secret. Ann n'wolie at noon and came down lor colfec. One or two of the porch-sillers eyed her curiously, Jor Ann bad teen an early l-irer. Tlicy suspected that she hail been out dancing flic night before with that playboy across the lake, Jaime Laird. But (he news that the college- boy waiter conveyed lo Ann at Ihe table was more disconcerting Hum the waggish looks from the porch-sitters. At some time in the night the hotel manager's safe — a . flimsy Tile-case affair— had been robbcti, and S1000 in negotiable bonds wns missing. It had been a , quiet job, which hadn't been discovered until morning, and Ihc detectives hadn't round any clews. After this late breakfast Ann went down to the boathotise for a swim. In her green bathing suit she lay on the docks until the liour of '2, when people began lo go into the water. Ralph sat at her silk-, wnlchinj! the bathers while the life guard was al lunch. "I've Rot some drawings of that new bridge across the Golden Gale," he otic-red. "They're in Ihe bonlhouse, if. you want lo sec them." "Not now," Ann said. "I'm too gloriously lazy." "You're just like all the rest," he said, smiling. "But no woman is goinj; In make a lool of me! I'm fate from them." "I'm sure they won't," she said. "You love bridges loo much." She looked tip and saw Lefly Ponds coiiiing toward the boalhousc with ;j prelly woman at his shic.

I worked hard all cummer keeping my white complexion. I've some things to do in the village. Besides, you need a haircut!" Ann laughed softly. So Lolly's wife was back from Europe! No man can consider himself a gay philanderer when there is a female around to tell him to go get liis hair cut. When Lefty spoke to Ann on Ihc dock, he did it sheepishly and Ins wife gave him a loolc thai .-quelchcd him completely Mr and. Mrs. Ponds took the boat lo the village. The same ferry that. too!< Lefty and Jus wife to the village brought back Jaime ns a passenger. He was smiling and gay; Ami' saw him from afar and waved. At the .sound of his voice something slill tightened in her throat. "I've been looking for you everywhere!" he said. lie nodded at Ralph, who moved away to watch the swimmers. Jaime'look Ann to the end of the dock for a private chat. His voice didn't ri.'ie above a whisper. He sat (here, looking into her eyes. For the first time Ann felt that he turned on his charm, as one turns on water from a faucet. "I couldn't find you last night," Jaime said. "Where were you?" He went on, without waiting for an answer, "Darling, what do you say—this is our last chance to run up lo Canada for a week-end? It's your last week-end in the mountains. Don't be a silly, unworldly girl. Yon can check oul of Ihe hotel, bid the porch-sitters adicu.t, and I'll drive you back to the cily from Canada." be having a quarrel. When they readied the docks, Lefty blushed ANN looked at him, and suddenly she felt iliat she was aware of his real character. She knew she was completely aw arc oL herself. ]£ she were responsible '.o no o:ic but herself on vocation, tlien she'd meet Hint responsibility. She was not Roing to lake a week-end trip with Jaime, no mailer how harmless il seemed. "But why--why should we leave this adorable spot?" she ^ He was like a petulant child. 'Darling!

Suddenly she s.iw Jaime as he .;cnlly,was—a. ch.-inniiuj boy who lad a "line," a manner o( ihsinu- •iting himself inlo one's confidence. What would be his altitude if he were once sure of her love? He had not asked her to marry him. Hc had avoided the • ject as Ihough it wore i a] | t of plague.
