Jessica was excited and a little breathless as she pushed open the heavy plate-glass door of the jewelry shop. A little later the lovely cluster o( diamonds lay winking up at her on a pad of black velvet and aft elderly man with keen gray eyes regarded first tht ring and then Jessica. "Yours?" he asked sharply. "Mine?" She stifTened. "I beg your pardon?" He apologized. "There are all sorts of people in a town like this and we hove to be careful. Thii is a particularly beautiful and valuable ring. I should like to have time to examine it carefully if you care to leave it.** Something in Jessica's face must have shown her disappointment for he picked up the ring again, studied it for a minute, and said, "I'll advance a twenty-five dollar deposit on it. You may return it if you decide not to sell." Jessica bit her lip. She hadn't planned to return. Twenty-five monds brilliant. Suddenly someone Just behind Jessica said, "Let me see that ring, Joe." In the mirror before her Jessica jaw a (ail thin man with unruly black hair and very light eyes. He was thin-lipped and arrogant. He reached around her and picked up the ring in spite of the jeweler's movement to cover it with his lingers. He said, "This is a honey. How much is it?" • • * 'J'JIE jeweler's glance wavered. In that moment Jessica knew that the man was a good customer tnd one the owner disliked lo offend, and that he was uncertain and embarrassed. She, herself, despised the thin man. His coal impudent stare which swept up and down her. Those hard, insulting eyes and his arrogant manner. The jeweler found his tongue. 'The ring is not (or sale. The young lady brought it in for appraisal," he explained. . The man dropped the ring. His cool glance hinted that he regarded Jessica as a pauper. "I'll lake the ring with me," said Jessica icily. "I've changed my mind about selling it." She snatched up the ring and dropped it in her purse and lett the store, walked a block and real- ixed she hatl acted like a fool for no reason. No harm to have appraisal on the ring. Also, there was the twenty-five dollar deposit She passed a store window and saw a coat which would look won derful on Betsy. She retraced her steps, entered the store and said lo the jeweler "I was fooiish to leave but I didn't want that man to h»ve my ring.' He smiled and said, "He ha! plenty ol money to par a good price for what he wants and he dollars—that would repay Mary Belle and leave her five over. She smiled. "Very well." The ring lay on the black velvet, , . „„„ „„ •he gold soft and yellow, tht dia-lciding not to sell," she said. always knows what he wants gets it."
