"As soon as I get back to town I'll tell the whole story to the man who runs the night club And I hope you'll be arrested." "You'd look great with your husband in jail, wouldn't you?" "Husband. The day I marry you Long Island Sound will turn to ink." "If you hadn't broken your date with me for tonight in a very unsportsmanlike m a n n e r this wouldn't have happened." "Unsportsmanlike? What could have been more unsportsmanlike than the way you forced me into the date in the first place?" "Now, listen! At great risk, I rescued you from the slavering jaws of an infuriated beast. Instead of falling on my neck as a well-bred young lady should, you acceded to my request for a date in a most ungracious manner. Then you ditched me in the middle o' Fifth Avenue b y . . . " "Oh. my Lord!" groaned Packy. "You are the most long-winded nerson." "I resent that. 1 am d copious thinker. To resume, you gave me the slip in a most unworthy fashion., leaving me alone and unarmed with probably the most dangerous dog in New York. After which, you went home and wrote me a curt letter to the effect that the engagement was off. I ask you, is that sporting?" "All very plausible. Mr. Adams," Packy said sweetly. "But it happens to be onlv your side of the story." Tacks waved his hand. "You haven't got a oide. And, incidentally, it might interest you tc know that I love you." She shook her head. "Fairy tales haven't intrigued me for years." "You are without doubt the coldest woman I have ever met." said Tacks very seriously. "You just naturally break a guy's heart." There was a shade of wistfulness in his voice which Packy tried hard to ignore. But she couldn't--quite. After all, bad as this Adams was, she would have to grant him the virtue of persistence. Never in all her experience had she rebuffed anyone more frequently or thoroughly. Yet the Adams never failed to bound back as if made of India rubber, and ask for more. Suddenly, and to her intense surprise, she found herself feeling a little sorry for him. ' "Listen, Mr. Adams." she said hesitantly. "I--I don't want to be too hard on you . . ." "Ah!" He snapped at this crumb too eagerly. ''Beauty relents. Beast forgiven. All ends hap..." Packy silenced him with a chilly glance. "That's the trouble with you," she complained. "Every time I get a generous impulse in your direction, you kill it immediately with some smart remark. I started to say that I didn't want to be too hard on you. You have, of course, annoyed me terribly for some time. But I ... oh, well, if it will make you feel any better, I--I don't actively dislike you. In fact, there was a time--just once--when I was almost on the verge of liking you." Tacks almost bounced off the cot. "When was that?" he demanded quickly, glowing. "Never mind. I got over that-- er--crisis very easily. And the impossible things you've done since make me sure that there won't be another one." 'Bunch Of Gargoyles' A LMOST timidly Tacks laid a hand on her arm. To his surprise, she made no attempt to shake it off. "What have 1 done that's so awful?" he asked, in a low voice. Packy waved her hand, indicating the darkened interior of the ambulance. "Well, this, for instance. Do you call this the usual method of taking a girl to a parly?" "Now you mention it, it is a lil- lle irregular, perhaps." Tacks ventured. "But. .. well, I simply had to get you to this party." "But why? You must know a thousand other girls." "I do. And they're just a bunch of gargoyles compared to you." "But," Packy persisted, "just why was it so imperative to bring me in particular?" "Listen," said Tacks frankly, "I can't honestly tell you now. Bui before tonight's over you'll know." He pausrd, as if weighing his words. "And I'll promise you another thing. After tl.e party I'll drive you home in a decent car. And then, if you really want it that way. I'll never bother you any more. I'31 newr try to see you again or--or anything. Only"--in the darkness his hands clenched-"I'm just going to hop* that you won't want il thai way " Packy didn't answer immediately. Tacks, looking gloomily out the door, perceived that Sukiyaki was nesring his goal. 'Til leH you what," Packy said «ncxpec1t-dly. "I blame myself lor just one thing. I could havj stopped you easily outside the club tonight But 1--I didn't want to make a scene. Arid since we've come this far. we rmeht as well ittemol to have tome fun." She hesitated a little. "Oh. what I mean is. we can call some sort of a truce, if you want to." "Mind you, I'm not changing my --er--original opinion of you. I still think you've behaved atrociously. But you seem to have set your heart on this party and I don't want to spoil it for you." "You spoil it?" said Tacks incredulously. "Why. you'll make the evening. If it comes to that, I've had a swell time already." The ghost of a smile played about Packy's lips. So he called setting off a mock-fire In a night club, getting his face slapped and kidnapping a girl in a junked ambulance a swell time, did he? Well, some people had strange notions of amusement. "How do you think up all your cute little ideas?" she asked. "I don't know," said Tacks modestly. "I guess it's the gypsy in me." Short Conference CALTAIR Acres, the magnificent ^ estate of Mr. Richard Crafton- bury Adams, tycoon in petroleum and uncle to Jonathan Harland. is situated in a charming section of Long Island some two hours distant from New York. The house is a long, low, rambling affair of white-washed brick, groaning under English ivy and notable for a multitude of chimneys and wrought iron balconies. It faces the Sound over a wide expanse of sloping green lawn at the left of which a formal garden distills perfume by day and night. The approach to the house from the main road is, therefore, at its rear. And the driveway that leads to it from the public highway begins at two great iron gates and runs twist- ingly for some three hundred yards through a parkland inhabited by stately trees. Into this driveway Van Harkness's I s o t t a - F r a c h i n i turned without hesitation. A moment later the car containing the Chiseler and Ape Cqletti arrived. Mr. Coletti. supervised caustically by the Chiseler during the entire route, had done a remarkable job of trailing. Never once had he lost sight of the Isotta. As a result, his blood was up and tht thrill of the chase was upon him. "Gee," he said now, in an awed whisper, perceiving the majesty of the iron gates, "who lives in dis joint, de Mayor of Long Island?" Receiving no reply, he started to turn the car in at the driveway. But with an oath the Chiseler grabbed the wheel and twisted the vehicle back on the main road. "Fool." said the Chiseler. "Did you expect to drive up to the hcuse?" "You tol' me to folly dat car," Ccletti said aggrievedly. The Chiseler considered this unworthy of retort. "Turn around as soon as you can." he commanded. "Then go back past those gates and park in the nearest field." Even the Ape could carry out such concise orders. When he had parked to the Chiseler's satisfaction, they crossed the road and stole silently into the preserves of Saltair Acres. Beneath a giant oak tree the Chiseler called a halt. "Now, Coletti," he said, "you stay here. I'm going to recon- noitre." He slid through the shadows like some kind of profound ghost and, after inspecting the grounds for some little time, took up a position behind a large bush. From this vantage point he could see whoever went into or came out of the house via the driveway entrance. For five minutes he waited in the stilly night. Then his quick ear caught the sound of a door opening softly. He peered cautiously around the bush. Miss Dorothy South was slipping quietly down the steps. At the foot of them she looked around quickly, then sped across the lawn toward the parkland. Her course was but thirty feet or so to the starboard of the Chiseler's refuge and that dignitary hailed her with the utmost circumspection. Hsst!" he said sibilantly, like an intellectual serpent Miss South veered toward the bush. Ah, ChJscler," she said, beaming upon him. "So you made it Nice work." The ChJscler waved his hand as if dismissing a trifle. "A simplp matter,** he said. "Come back to where I left Colelli. We must have a short conference." "Short is right, big boy. Tm supposed to be aloft powdering my lip-lilted nose." "We won't be long," said the Chiseler He took her arm and Guided her to the snot where Co- Irtli stood scowling beneath the oak tree like the village blacksmith in a felt hat "Now, Dorothy." said tht Chis- clcr. "what's the layout like inside?" "Chiseler," said Miss South enthusiastically, "you wouldn't believe il. Therc'rc Orientals to sel the whole of Armenia up in business. The place is absolutely overrun with swell furniture and paintings. And as I wa~ passing the dining-room 1 lamped a candelabra ..." , . "No, no," Jhc Chiller interrupted impatiently. "I don't care about all that rubbish. Have you noticed, Dorothy, whether the place is--er--conducive to our lit- venture?" tomorrow. , . . ., 3 skt. 7-9c. poo-er and smaJl 5-6c; i day «iw»ts of Mr and Mrs. Harold 4-ot.
