As if she were going lo—bring us trouble." ,• •i ••'• HI AT 10 o'clock the lobby was tic -'*- - serlccl except for Miss Ethel Plummer, an elderly spinster who took over the desk at night. In Miss Small's suite, Miss Brncb was stretched full length on the low couch, her untidy black heat resting on pillows. Miss Small sa at her feet. Within easy rencl was a small table holding a spiri lamp and china. Jt was the hour for hot chocolate and confidences. Miss Brady reached lor her chocolate and look a deep swallow. Her long, ufily face relaxed, her eyes smiled. "This is the best part of the day. . . . Marshall-Gill made me late. Talk, talk, talk, all about nothing. She swore she'd sent the. stuff over lor the parly costumes. Did she?" "She did. All cut out and sewed, only the masks to do." "Coo!" Miss Brady said. "She'll be on hand lor tea tomorrow, as usual, and sees no reason why we shouldn't do the masks then, Sunday or not. What do you say?" "Whatever you say, Moriny." • Miss Brady's eyes clouded. 1'What's wrong, Angel? You're miles away, you've got something on your mind." Miss Small hesitated. Then, "I'm worried," she said simply. Miss Brady sat up and scowled. "Has some little tramp — " "No, no, Monny. Everything's all right. I mean, don't look like that! Nothing's happened at all. Only one sick tray, Minnie May, hangover, and only two week-end passes and 1 know they're legitimate." "JVTISS SMALL explained. She do- scribed the sudden transformation at the desk, the fear that took over eyes and hands, the averted face. "She was natural enough when she came in, exactly as you said on the card. Shy, quite ordinary in a nice, quiet way. Then all at once something happened. She clumgcd, right before my eyes, and it frightened mo. Somehow 1 got (be idea that she saw something, or. heard something, but I can't imagine what." "tt'lio was near the desk?" "I thought of .that, loo. Just the usual crowd going to the dining room, stopping for mail, nobody that stood out. Wait a inin- ule. Hot came for a tray check for Minnie May." "Dottv, the girl evangelist! Who else?" "Jewel at the elevator, Kilty at the board. Kitty noticed it, too; I imagine they all did. It seems ridiculous when f loll it like this. Kitty, Jewel, all ot them as drab as Ruth Miller herself. . . . Oh!" "Got .something?" "Lillian Harris was hanging around. She said something flippant, I forget what it was. Then she went off to her job. The Millci girl went out, too, a few minutes later. . . . She dida't have dinner.' Miss Brady looked thoughtful "Harris," she said. Miss Small snl quietly, "Lilliai doesn't like me." 'I don't know what you mcai by that, and I don't see bow i fits" in here," Miss Urady an swcrcd. "Lillian Harris was wel •ocommcndcd, but it she hurls you In any way, out she goes." Miss Small raised puzzled eyes. 'What do you mean when you say she was well recommended? She came here after that rule about references was thrown out." i:< # * '• TVTISS BRADY grinned when Miss Small recalled the rule. They bad drafted it themselves and fought for its adoption. They'd argued that n girl's past was her own private business and insisted on her right to live it down i[ she wanted to. The Board had fought back, prophesied scandal, and lost. From that lime on, no one was asked for a reference. The rule was three years old and so successful that Miss Brady sometimes forgot its origin. "1 mean 1 knew about Harris," Miss Brady explained. "She used to have a friend here, used to visit the friend before she moved in herself." She ran a hand through her hair. "Suddenly I :nn very, very rick and tired of this job," she said. "T'tore's nothing to it any more, I don't know why I slay. If 1 ha.l halt the sense 1 was preMimal'ly born will), I'd chuck the whole works and tako you with me." "Monny! You're thinking about Europe again!" "I am, and why not? Don't look at me like that; you know it's been on my mind lor weeks. Listen. I - get my grandmother's money next month, so why don't ve resign? Heasons of health, and lull's no lie, you look a wreck; ml we'll grab Ihc first boat and 'ay for a year. . . . Angel, you ook about ten when you smile like hat. Feel better now?" •Milch!" That panic about Miller was obably ymir nerves. You're cx- ustcd and I don't wonder. All these messy brats pouring out their beastly little troubles. Did you tell Miller about April Hooper?" "Monny, I'm heartbroken! I'll go up Ihcj'C now, I'll go at pnce—" "Forget it," sak 1 .
