H had cruised through scenic Georgian Bay, on up through the great locks of Sault Ste, Marie, through which passes more traffic than any other canal in the world. The rest of the party had gone over to the Island for the day. leaving Gaynel and Barry on board. Emily and Melvin, with Miss Pierce (or audience, were going to have a game of golf on the Grand Hotel links; Pat wanted a swim in the picturesque outdoor pool; Miss Cupples, going in for educational pursuits, meant to visit the old (ort "Are you sure you didnt want to go?" Barry asked. They were stretched in steamer chairs on the sun deck; Gaynel looking like a little girl in her brief halter and shorts. "We could have gone horseback riding through the parks; they are really lovely, you know. Or driving in a carriage, had you preferred." Gaynel wriggled in sheer comfort, settling deeper into her chair. "No, thank you," she said. "I'm not in any hurry to put my foot on land again; tomorrow or the next day will do very well. I hope 1 didn't keep you from going; you didn't have to stay to play host." Barry said, "You know better nan that. We haven't had much ime alone." It was dear of you, Barry, to bring ihe whole menagerie along." He denied the "dearness." saying it had been his pleasure, since Emily had wanted her friends. "You know," she said, "this has been belter lhan any flight to the moon. Barry. It's been almost like being on the moon: (he rest or the world seems so far away, as though it no longer existed." Barr.v said. "I'd take you to the moon, if you'd let me—you know that." • • • E said, "You're a darling," and tossed him a smile. But she kept the subject bound to safer ground; she had not made up her mind about Barry, yet. "1 wish Denny would have come," the little fine line that mention of Denny often brought came between her brows. "There wasn't any reason why he shouldn't. He doesn't start with that new firm—thanks to you. Barry, per usual—until fall. I'm afraid the reason was his latest heart-throb. And Barry, I'm worried about Ihis one." He said. "I thought you told me you'd le» all your jitters behind. There's no use worrying about Denny; he changes his current love interest even more often than his jobs. Now I," he leaned over to smile into her eyes,,,"keep the same one all the time." "You're an old spoofer," Gaynel said. Was he going to be sentimental? "I'm really worried about Denny's new love, though, Barry Denny wouldn't leave town in this awful heat—and this current interest has lasted longer than ever before. She's a divorcee, two times removed. That should give her an experienced technique Denny's such a gullible idiot." "Denny's nobody's fool. If there's anything 1 could do "I thought you might look her up and se« if she's as bad as she sounds I doot mean 1»d.' really. leaven knenvs. I'm no prude The woman may nave had a mean deal 1 wouldn't ask if 1 didnl hink it looked pretty serious And at that I nate it- II seems I'm always asking you to do things and never doing anything foe you." T-TE said seriously. "You couldnl ask enough. You know I'd move mountains, or the whole earth, (or you. ij I could. As [or what you can do for me—there's onlj one tiling. Gaynel." 'I know," sh* said, her cye« meeting his in a brief second, then ooking awaj "I'm still hoping. Barry darling, the answer will tit :he one you want. But I have (• sure." "Tell me. Gay—is there anyone else?" "N-no." Gaynel shook her head, with onlj a fraction's hesitancy. There wasn't, was there? She thought she was giving Barry the truth. There wasnt anyon* else, unless she counted Fritz. Cer- lainly he had yever let her think he had marriage in mind. As a matter of tact, he had told her quite pointedly, and more than once, thai he had no such intention. There had been that one night, of course, at The Goat's NesL when h« had kissed her. Bin even that night he had told her h« hadn't the tenacity or funds required. Barry's face WM much IKK tense. "Even if there ever should be, or if you can't make up your mind to take me for any reason except the size of my bank account. I'll risk thaL I told you I'd want you, anyway. 3 " She said, "I'll always remember that. You couldn't have said anything nicer. Barry. But please remember the bank account was only one among many items. I promise not to keep you waiting forever; we'd both be too feeble to enjqy that moon by then. I promise to let you know as soon as I can." "I couldn't ask for anything more." He seemed satisfied. He could afford to wait. He had so much to Rive her. She had not hurt him this time. <T» Be C*nUn>e4) In Englond It's th« Chemist Shop In France It's th» Apothecary Shop In Blytheville It's BARNEY'S DRUG STORE For Expert Prescript-ion Service More than a hundred kinds of birds have become extinct in the flst 200 years.
