"I'm glad you did it." He went out of the compartment and looked up the porter to see about his bags. He knew DOW that he had had enough ol IJz. He had taken a long, long time and the.path behind him was strewn with'wreck- age. He left the train at Chicago and took a bus back to Capitol City. That was the end of the Conover Agency job, naturally. He got another job. It wasn't a highly paid one, but it wasn't a "bought 1 * )ob. Ma, sick and tired of the nursing home, found some roofns in' her old neighborhood and moved in with him- They were the usual sort ol rooms Ma picked out. A tavern on the ground floor. A narrow stairway with , chipped green plaster walls. A small kitchen with sagging cupboards and an ancient gas stove. In February Harriet '•< showed up unexpectedly.' She'd had an awfu Lime finding, them, she said- She's called Tod's phone number In the book arid Jenny had told her they were divorced. She hadn't heard -1 or she had been living in Chicago "Good grief, what, a place t live," she said, plumping her suit case down on the studio couch Tod was appalled at the change In Harriet. She Looked old and weary She was out of work arid they ha to let her stay. Ma wouldn't hav turned her away for the worl< Tod reasoned that at least ther would be someone to look afte Ma properly while he was ai work But Harriet wasn't home much, turned out. She used the apart merit for sleeping and th at ibout all. "Ma says you're payin' for Lha Before you - buy,\ see these USED CARS ic house out on Rivcrdale Road ir Jenny .while we live in a dump ke this," Harriet said vin- ictively. "Sure, 1 keep tip payments on ie house, thai was the agreement, pay no alimony or support for he kids." "She don't nefed you to buy that ouse tor her. She's makiii' money and over fist in her dress shop. on ought lo see the way they've ot the place fixed up. Some oint." "It's nice she's doing well," Tod nultered. He had walked by the lop once on the opposite side of he streel, just out ol curiosity. He ould see thai It was a prospering usiness. If it hadn't been, he night have had the courage to a east try to see Jenny. As it was here wasn't,much point In it. tie id sec Nina,'though. ' T was one of those.windy March days, witli papers whirling in. he gutters and stray hais cart wheeling across intersections.- H< was in a hurry, but when he saw 'Jina- he stopped, and called ou o her. He thought for an instant h saw a gleam of malice in her eye •as she "recognized him. Hu kne\ that Nina didn't like htm. but h felt an overwhelming desire to tall to her, because she would sure! speak 6f Jenny. ; 'Ho w'&— how's business, Nina? The wind whipped past them, an the-sidewalk : was crowded at l th intersection, so 'he took her 'arm and drew her over to the shelter o a building. "Fine- The shop is doing eve better than we expected. Yo should see the income tax we ju: got through paying." "Uncle Sam takes quite a bit eh?" He didn't want to kno about the tax. All he wanted wa to hear about Jenny. "Hpw- are you doing, Tod? Nina' eyes caught his m mentary hesitation. "Still with th nov**r 'At^rify, I pr°**mip, H she id. "No. I loft there about the first the year." Her brows went up. "Oh? I cln't heard." "I've got a job with a furniture ore. Pretty, good future i,n it." There was a painful pause, "I've been expecting to see a yout in the rotogravures about ou and Liz," Nina said. "1 sup- ose you'll be getting married ion?" "You haven't heard about that ther? Liz and I are quits." He olild feel his face reddening. 'Well, that's news. Did you now 'that Jenny's made up her aincJ to marry Rick?" "No," Something heavy came nto his chest- "But 1 had an idea scy probably would sometime." e added. "I'm happy about it. All Jenny's riends are." Nina rattled on.- She u'gged pensively ;al,' her gloves. Jenny's such' a goo'd kid. She nooned around so long over you, began to be afraid she was a one-man .gaU But we,aU get over nese things, don't we?" suppost we "dp." .. His voice racked a little but -he couldn't elp it, • •* * VINA went on. "Jenny's thinking of selling out her hall ot he shop 'after Easier, because kick's got that lovely place in Cen- crvi]]c, and his mother says she'll .akt the cottage and let them have he big house." "That's tine." He only wanted Lo escape from Nina now. He pulled up the collar of his overcoat. The wind blew furiously, and. ie couldn't hear what Nina was aying. - ; "Well, i jjucss I'd*better be shoving along; it's iny lunch hour, you l£rip\yl". HeVscar^ely'knew what he was saying '_ • Nina leaned closer, "I said. Is there, any h\'d like me lo take to Jenny?'" "No. Pm just glad to know she's well and happy." They parted. The wind seemed colder to him now. He felt cold all the way through, chilled to the bone, as though he would never be warm again. • (To B« Continued)' Notice ' LIVE STOCK MEN ATTENTION FARMERS Dead, fallen and crippled animals picked up free of charge in sterilized trucks.
