The fact that the Chiseler had looked over his abode and cate- roried it correctly flattered him. "Well," he said, "I'm glad you felt that way. Too many people mistake my place for a picnic ground. They drive out here from the city, eat their lunches and litter the place up with newspapers and tin cans. And I'm going to put a stop to it. A stop to it. dammit." "Quite," said the Chiseler, bending this declaratjon to suit his own ends. "And nothing would give me more pleasure than to be of assistance to you." "Assistance to me?" repeated Richard Craftonbury. "How?" "I have," said the Chiseler smoothly, "what I believe may amount to a modest inspiration. Perhaps, Mr. Adams, I could offer you my services in the capacity of a kind of overseer or bailiff.

"I fancy that I am Dne of the finest cribbage players .hat ever sailed the seven seas." "Hey?" Mr. Adams jumped. He had not been prepared to have his bailiff speak up in such a big way "Do you think you could beat me jt cribbage?" "Unless," said the Chiseler, "you rank with one of the few grea masters." "Ho! Is that so? Well, answer me this: Do you play chess? Think before you speak, my man. I'll have you to know that I'm the best chess player on Long Island." Peace "IF YOU will permit me, sir," said * Mr. Austin Sebastian Dip- sang, nee Chiseler Jennings, some time crook and present bailiff o Saltair Acres, "you were the bcs chess player on Lonj; Island." "What's that?" roared Richard Craftonbury. "Say that again!" "I am merely pointing out," sau the Chiseler, with subUety, "tha I am on Long Island now. Richard Craftonbury wheeled on Mrs. Dipsang. "Dipsang, my eribbag» board. My chess sets, Dipsang. Til show this -- thi bailiff where he heads in. I'll pin his ears back. Coine on you, you bailiff. Well sec about this." The Chiseler addressed Mrs. Dipsang. "I shall sec you Jaler, tny love, he said, giving her a melting look Richard Craftonbury grabbe his arm.

Everything else could wait ntil that matter was cleared up, "Come on," he roared. "Don't tand there mooning at a woman, fou're in for a rough passage, my man." He dragged the Chiseler toward the door. "Make way, the est of you. We're busy." They went down the hall, the !hiseler's red-and-white under- iants billowing in triumph. Peace had descended upon Salt- ir Acres. The party was over. All was quiet on all fronts. Mr. Wiliam Steele had departed, taking he East brothers with him. Miss .uella" West and Mr. Jumbo Cutler ad driven away, a couple of moon- truck lovebirds. Mr. Van Rypper larkness, a much mystified young man, had gone home alone, completely at a loss to explain the di- jression of Miss Dorothy South. To ILS credit, it must be stated that on he following day Mr. Harkness made a pilgrimage to Miss South'j apartment house. He was in-j ormed, however, that Miss South lad returned an hour or so aftei he previous midnight, packed se" eral bags and vanished. Where ha he gone? The superintendent of he apartment house couldn't say. Vould she be back' The superin- endent didn't know. Miss South lad rented the apartment furnished. It was the superintendent opined cynically, highly probable hat she wouldn't be back at alL Running out on the rent, no doubt. Mr. Harkness thanked thp $u- erintendent and forgot 1 Misit Jor- othy South within five minutes. After all, he couldn't worry about he idiosyncrasies of any one girl. tfr. Harkness knew many girls. And they all had idiosyncrasies. At Saltair Acres, in the little den off the library, Richard Crafton- ury Adams and the Chiseler, a bottle of brandy between them, were locked in a desperate, drawn struggle. The Kryckiwynski gam- sit favored by Richard Crafton- bury was a rough, tough, two-fisted egg. But the gambit Cascadilla y Gomez, pet of the Chiseler, was proving that it could take it. Lite Begins UT in the driveway Mr. Tacks Adams stood with an arm around the waist of Miss Patricia ^orth. It was remarkable how quickly Mr. Adams had attained proficiency at putting his arm around the waist of Miss Patricia Worth. The observer would have seen justified in concluding that ic'd been doing it all his life. As a matter of fact, Mr. Tacks Adams wished that he had been. But after all, reasoned Mr. Tacks Adams, he ladn't ever done any living before tonight. For Mr. Adams life was just beginning. "Tell you what, darling," Mr. Tacks Adams said now. "We'll slip down to the garage and borrow the snappiest car my uncle owns. You're going home in state." Packy held back. "Do me a favor, Tacks dear?" she asked. "Do you a favor?" repeated Tacks. "Anything you ask. Want the moon? Well, just wait here on« minute." "No," said Packy. "I wouldn't give that for the moon. I want to go home in the ambulance." "What? That old crate? It isn't fiMlng. It isn't proper. You belong in a Rolls-Royce smothered in green orchids." "I want to go home in the ambulance," Packy insisted. "But why? In five minutes I can conjure up a chromium-plated chariot that'll do a hundred per." o 1 "Ambulance," said Packy firmly. "Okay. But I don't understand " 'You wouldn't. Men never do. Don't you see, Tacks darling, that it was in that ambulance that I-that I first began to--to..." Tacks goggled like a kind oi ecstatic goldfish. "Hey!" he said. "You wouldn't be casting about for a four-letter word meaning a hatful of affection, would you?" She moved closer to him. Well," she said softly, "what da you think?" "Bless that ambulance," sa Tacks reverently. "After we' married, darling, I'm going to havt it stuffed and put in our living- room." They crossed the driveway. Tht ambulance loomed large before them. Tacks helped her in. Then he was up beside her, starting th* motor. "Honeymoon Special," he cried, still with an arm around Packy. "All aboard." They moved. But Mr. Tacki Adams, in his fine fluent enthusi- , asm, had forgotten something. He had forgotten to still the voice of the ambulance. "Clang" said the ambulance. In the little den off the living- room of Saltai* Acrei Richard Craftonbury Adams raised his head from the chess board. The Chiseler raised his head. "What," demanded Richard Craf- tonbury Adams, "was that?" ». "I don't know," said Chiseler, , "but it sounded to Jnc like the ena j of the raund." THE END 30 45--Hnu-e1; r '.ii Ilaunah.
