Back of the windows lights appeared her* and there as if turned on by an electrician at a master switch-board. People whom he probably did not know were doubtless getting up to go to work on the day shift at the boalworks. He came to the little white house surrounded by the while picket fence. Carl-Peterson sat on the front steps. Eddie turned in. Carl was smoking a fragrant pipe. "Is this where you live?" Eddie inquired. "Lived I mean." . i "The. little house I told you about," Carl said. "Kirsten bought [ it us a surprise. 1 * "Where is she?" Carl gestured with his pipe stem; "Inside. Getting dressed to go to work." "Does she know you're home?" "I think so. Sort of, that is. She slept all night on my arm, just like always. Everything is all right. Come in, Eddie, .you shall see.* 1 — Eddie didn't want to butt in bul Carl laughed him out of that. "TviP best friend butt in? Come on. 'Kirslen would wish it. She liked jyou, too, you remember. We were often three together and it was something very fjne." He knocked the dottle out of his pipe. It did not seem strange. Eddie followed him into the liv- ling room; "The window got 'broke," Carl explained. "Some was a chair opposite to her own at the table. Carl sat in it. "This is my place. She has kept it for me. That other by the stove is for you." • •• • TT all seemed perfectly natural. Eddie was glad even if their sober happiness made him realize more poignantly that contentment like, theirs was not (or him. Duke, baffled by the closed front door, had gone around to the back. He stood up on his hind legs, resting his front paws on the outside sill-of the screened window and looked in. He gave one subdued bark. "Why, you're Eddie's dog, aren't you?. 1 said Kirsten. She got up and opened the back door. "Come in. Duke, and have some breakfast." There was a bone with a little meat on it in the refrigerator. Duke disposed of it gratefully. "I think," sajd Kirsten, watching him, "lhal it was very nice ol you to come to our new house, Duke. I know Eddie would like that" "See " said CarL "It's the way I lold you." Duke came over to Kirsten and put his head on her knee. He looked up at her with that expression which, in a dog's eyes, melts the marble hearts of graven statues. Kirsten patted him. "I'm sure your prayers are pretty much the same as. mine only I expect yours are more unselfish." She was just finishing the few breakfast dishes when the door bell rang. ~ ; When Kirslen went to answer il an elderly man in a blue-gray uniform stood there. son," he said apologetically, ."or I wouldn't have itopped by.

But I-thought I'd pas« this way this morning and do the best I could to correct my mistake." He reached in his pocket and found one of those tiny V-mail letters. Kirsten did not take it for • moment but stood, steadying herself. Then, entirely under control, she thanked the old man eour-" teously. She closed the door and went over to the brok«n window to read the letter. moved toward Kinten M that he could look over her shoulder. "It's the last one 1 wrote. I mailed it Just a Jew dayi before we embarked for that i^ land. 1 hadn't got that one I told you about from her yet." He mo- fioned Eddie to come closer. "I'd like you to read it There's • lot about you in it," There wasn't really a lot about anything in the nole: "Min Alaskadt Hustra- No one has told u* y«t bul w« Know anyhow lhal we a rc foinr Into action »oon.
