"When?" demanded Miranda Trent at last. "Probably not until early day after tomorrow ... An extra few hours of preparation may add more to my chances of gelling them out alive tliau the delay can possible add to their immediate clanger." Alter a pausu in which she seemed to think tin's over old Miranda nodded ;ind asked, You're trying it alone then?" "It seems besl." Barry was slanding before Ihe fireplace, lighting a cigarct, his slim; lithe jiRurc drooping with weariness. 'I've got to carry cxlra fuel in ease I—have to be out longer -than 1 hope. Not to speak o£ emergency supplies." "Your plans are all made, I suppose?" "Been at it nil afternoon. It took a lillle time to get the official oltay." * * * gUDDENLY Linda broke through • Ihe icy shcalli o £ horror that had been closing in about her since she began to understand, nnd cried out, "Barry! You're not going—down there—alone in that jungle? . . . Oh, no! . . . You said, yourself, it was hopeless." She know from their faces how childisli her outcry sounded in the contained stillness of that room. They turned to look at her— Barry, detached, almost grim in his weariness; old Miranda, rigid with incredulous annoyance. , "My dear Miss Benton," she said, her clear old voice like a trickle oE icy water, "I think you forget yourself. . . . Wow," her manner dismissed Linda as completely ;is i[ she h:ul not been there, "what can I do to be of the most help. Barry?" ' •"Must have Jefferson stir me up something hot, and then shovel me inlo bet;, Duchess—" Barry's smile held a glimmer of his usual carefree self—"and slop hopping on Tilania for not wanting me to fall among boa constrictors and crocodiles, I think it's mighty sweet of lier . . . Gosh!" he yawned and stretched. "I'm too dog-tired and hungry to caic, myself." « « * 6 «pOOR little Tifania!" Barry took Linda into his arms as the indomitable tap of Mrs. Trent's cane faded into the distance. "It's a tough world for gossamer wings, isn't it? Now this lies it! We tell grandmother —tomorrow—about us." 'No!" cried Linda into his shoulder, "No!" "Just after lunch," Barry went on, kissing the top o£ her bright head. "The Duchess is always at her brightest and best then—a bit drowsy, and more inclined to view the weaknesses of the rest ot the world with tolerance." "Not mine. Slie thinks I'm just an — an invertebrate worm But, Barry, how can she just let you go oft that way—as if it were nothing?" Barry laughed. "It's a sort of inherited gilt," he said, "like second sight, or having red hair. The Trent women- even those who have married into Hie family—have been the wives and daughters and mothers of soldiers for so long, that the later generations have all been born with cartridge clips in their mouths instead of silver spoons . . And grandmother was born a Trent. She married, her second cousin." When Linda laugbed a little unsteadily, Barry patted her shoulder and said, "That's n good girl! Now wipe your nose before the Duchess comes back." Linda said, clinging to his coat collar, still between sobs and laughter, "Imagine your grandmother having anyone tell her to wipe Jier nose! . . . But then, I don't suppose the Trent women ever have to wipe their noses." 'Oh—I must have forgotten to mention it—" Barry continued to pat her shoulder and laugh down into her flushed, tcar-slained Jace —"Iho Trent women are all born with patent nosevvipers." "And automatic lefrigeration, too," Linda choked. "I think all of you Trentsr are bora that way. "She is a grand old girl," approved Barry. "But we can't all be alike, and you're rather an artist in your own particular line. Slick fc> it. I like it." ., --•••, * * * AS the wheels of Jefferson's tear ~ wagon sounded on the polished floor of Ihe hall oulside, lie kissed: her swiftly, nnd whispered, "To-' morrow — after lunch." Then' drawing her arm through his, he! led her, with his knees shaking in mock terror, In ludicrous pantomime of a wedding procession; toward his grandmother's favorite chair. When old Miranda came in, they were both laughing. "Upon my word, Barry, you look rested already!" she said approvingly, and added with Ihe gracious unbending that often fol-' lowed one of her vitriolic outbursts, "What have you done to him, Miss Benton? . . . And what are you two laughing about?" "Tilania," said Barry, blandly; reaching for the largest sandwich; on the tray, "was just telling me' Hie most amazing story about—cr. •—a family of her acquaintance.' They were born, she insisls, fully, equipped with automatic nose wipers and electric refrigeration." . . . Only she found them rather unsympathetic and lacking in thc ; finer feelings about life." i "Indeed," said the old lady, "you; can't tell me Miss Benlon ever talked any such nonsense!" And ; wondered why they laughed again. Altogether it was a very gay little supper party.—on the surface at least—with Barry alternately teasing and paying Die most extravagant compliments to both of them indiscriminately. Old Miranda professed herself to be inordinately hungry, and ate so many sandwiches ihat Linda, who had seen her groaning in one of her attacks of indigestion, was alarmed; and Linda convulsed them both by singing and acting out a droll little French song, in which she imitated a quarrel between Iwo wooden manikins over the altenlions o i a wind o\v dresser. There were practically no long, silences, and i[ one did by chance threaten, everyone promptly began to talk at once. It is true that afler the party had broken up, Jefferson showed Cicely a neat pile of barely nibbled sandwiches on the lower tray of the tea-wagon opposite Miss Linda's chair; and that Linda returning lo the drawing room aiter hours o£ sleepless tossing for a bqok she wanted, saw through the opefi'door old Miranda, sitting by Ih6 dying -fire, her ringers stroking the sleeve of Barry's overcoat, iVrhich lay across her lap.
