Lilly Warren went about tier cooking with much clatter of pots and not too successful results. The housework suffered too as Lilly was absent for long hours. Bea was not sure whether Henry Harding noticed, or whether his preoccupation with his patient made him blind to rmindane affairs. On the night before Lilly's final day as housekeeper and cook, Bea Cosgrove was awakened by the sound of voices coining through the wall to the tower room. She sat up, saw Lilly Warren's bee was empty. "Fun and gomes next door, Nona McGuire said sleepily from her cot. "Do we get up and join the party or go back to sleep." "It doesn't sound like much fun," Beu pointed out. A door slammed loudly, the voices were still. "Party's over," Nona murmured "Some fun, no doubt." Bea slept fitfully the rest of th night, heard Lilly come in will the exaggerated and noisy caution of a drunk, and awoke early t see Mrs. Warren standing in th bathroom door pouring herself drink from a full bottle. "Good morning," Bea said. "NuL-s to you/' Lilly answered Factory-Trained Experts to Serve You! D H EIFI S UEB! Creifui . . . Wear Di; "All right," Miss Cosgrovc s:iid miably. "You want me lo help tti gel breakfast?" "Drunk or sober I c'n cook bct- ct-'n you. I c'n do anylhinp bet- er'n you." She had another drink, nl the bottle down on the dresser nd started out. At the doorway ;e whirled around, retraced her teps quickly and snatched the oltle to her breast. "No you on'L" She went out in a blit/c I belligerency. • • * VONA McGUIRE sal up. "What a load," she yawned. "T can we're going to have a swell .ikfnst. She ought to give Mol- ic a vole of thnnks for keeping fardinff so blind. Tf he is blind." "You're fond of Mollie?" Bea isked. Nonn McGuire laughed. "Reals', yon hnve to kr)o\v dear tittle .tollie well lo love her like I do Come on and let's gel dressed. We might miss something," Surprisingly enough, Lilly had breakfast ready on time. She ap- penred to hnve pulled herself together, though tier breath was :hin£ of substance and her eyes did not focus very well. Twice when she bent over Henry Harding to serve him, Bea waited for an explosion, Henry Harding kept his eyef fixed on his plnte, avoided any direct look at Mrs. Warren. II \va ,illy who glowered at him. When the man finished quickly and hurried out, Lilly laughed. Mumbling to herself, she slag gered through the swinging doo to the kitchen. • • • YJENEATH the main house, pas sageways cut in stone led bac into the spacious subtercancn storerooms. Narrow-gauge track were laid in the floor and smal hand trucks clicked smooth! along them. At the entrance was the uppe terminus of the funicular railwa to the dock in the cove below.

Lilly Warren si it, her head nodding slowly with the motion of the car. Then Ben saw Hie red slain down from Lilly's temple. They were abreast when she could sec the other side if Lilly's head where the mushrooming bullet had smashed out. Too late she cmigVil the glint of steel in Lilly's lap. She had only lime lo recognize her own automatic before the gondola was past. She twisted around, wnlchcd Ihe car and its occupant move iip toward the ferminal, wnlchcd the careless nodding of Lilly's shattered head. She had to finish her trip down. When the car finally stopped at the very edge of the dock, she snt motionless stnring down at tlm water and at the beach beyond, She saw a wave, bolder than the others, lick up and destroy Ihe huge bare footprint in the sand.
