She and Nona left the small depression where the mate of the Simpatico had died. "What'd you pick up?" Nona demanded. Bea showed her, watched her face intently. N r ona showed DO interest Nona followed silently, stood and watched while Miss Cosgrove poked around the charred and twisted wreckage. She smiled when Bea unearthed a srnalj ax with scorched handle but serviceable blade. "Protection against George?" she jeered. "No," Bea said. "We're supposed to find a sheep. Find food I don't feel strong enough to teai one lirnb from limb with my ban j bands." "And I don't feel strong enough to eat one raw." "You don't think George'll give us fire?" "I don't know what George'll do. Not after this morning, it's funny thing. Ever since he go out of the service, I've been • him to do something. Show som« ambition. Strike out for himself Well, I suppose I should be pleased. He followed my advice didn't he?* 1 "How do you (eel about hi taking Mollie along?" "I'm glad he did," Nona Me -Jmre said slowly.

Fire, right, or concussion, the reason or their dealh did not matter She tried to count them. "If it hadn't been Fred, it'd been some other man." Nona said. "But vhy couldn't 1 have met George first? Why couldn't it have been George? But I met George afterward, of course. I didn't have anything more to do with Fred. ~ot that he cored. George and •ed were friends even then." "Friends?" Bea asked. "Oh yes. It was before the war ind I was 17, I wrote to George while he was away. They wouldn't :ake Fred. So George finally came back. To Fred and to me. lie said he wanted to marry me. I told George I wouldn't." "Did you tell him why?" "I told him why. I didn't tell him who- I never thought he knew, until this morning. He'd have shot Fred it he'd moved. And I knew something about myself then too. I want Fred dead. Mayhe it could be buried and forgotten then." • • * ?.SA COSGROVE stopped walking. The fire had spared a pa. of the gross on this end of the island, or the rains had quenchet it. Four sheep stood together making eating motions. As shi watched one of them broke from the others, ran to the edge of th cliff and disappeared silently i "Let's go back." Bea saic 'There's meal enough in the pen. "What're you going to do? Nona asked. "What's necessary," Bea sai grimly. "You might have a bette appetite later II you didn't watch' She tightened her hold on the a_ swallowed quickly, and pulled on of the bodies tree of the pile. The Islanders collected two ba tered buckets, one of which belt FRECKLES AND HIS FRIENDS BY MERRILL BLO Caruso of Croon ater. four scorched and sodden lankels. and a half of two cot attresses from the hut George nd Fred had occupied. There r ere no changes of clothes. On the other hand, there was arge assortment of tools and letHy of planks. Mabel Jones nd Harding had little trouble onstrucling a shelter in the angle f the veranda steps and the pa f ruined wall. Elenry Harding had prepared indHng, whittled from the dry nside of pine boards, and was ng to Ret a spark by striking teel against various kinds of tone. Mabel Jones had hacked way at the mutton with Harling's pocket knife and had some n the good bucket with added ainwater, waiting for the fire to iake a sort of stew. ^ GN~ES FIRTH returned from " A the lower storeroom on the f erge of tears. "It's so maddening when you know there's food down under all that rock. H she com- lained. She looked around suddenly. "Where's Mr. Sillwell? He eft me! He went on ahead wilh he peaches;!" Nona McGuire said wearily. "You shouldn't have trusted him, Aggie. He's probably down mak- ng a trade. And T don't think the rest of us will get either peaches or whiskey from the deal. I know nrge likes peaches." B-but they were all we found! They were for nil of us!" Miss Firth said. She sat down -0*1 the soggy edge of a mattress out of the rain. Bea Cosgrove stood up. "We've got to have a fire. I'll go nnti try to get a match or a piece of burning wood. I don't think George'll shoot. He's had a chance to think it over now. Cool off;" No one made any suggestion, no one tried to dissuade her. C*nr* again she went over the ground around the saucer depression. A shout and a clatter of rock brought her attention to a hurrying, bent-over figure on the trail to the cave. A little streamer of smoke whipped out behind Fred Sillwell. Smoke from the smoldering pieces of two by four he carried. (To Be ContinMrd) No KIDDING?) NOT MIS ,^ IT 55 (?FiJ I V I On.f^r.
