Once m o r« the household dropped back inlo the dull everyday routine of living. David was out of town on a trip to the West Coast which would keep him away for iwo weeks. Somehow Jessica welcomed ihe chance to be alo.._ and have time lo think, time to force her thoughts back instead o[ eagerly straining forward, lime to lake slock of herself and the future. She had the money from her ring. David must nol be ashamed of her and, in a reckless moment, she bought a new winler coal and hnt, and was shocked to find how little was left of the money she had been keeping for an emergency. She Ihou^hl about that ring as she bundled the new things far back into the wardrobe where Mrs. Blake would not discover them. Had Hugh Linton given the ring to his daughter for a present al her debutante party? Some day she would ask David, for David had gone to that party. They had almost quarreled in consequence, for she felt oddly lonely and hurt lo think of David dancing at the ball which headlined the Sunday paper; David, dressed as she hail never seen him"; and that girt, with the long pale hair, unaware that David belonged to her. Did anyone know? Ulcy, perhaps, although l jU cy was too absorbed in some froubled thoughts of her own these days to concern herself about Jessica. Lucy grew thinner and her lovely skin was almosl transparent. She took violent exercise. Hikes far off inlo the country with a Y group. Sometimes she did not return on Saturday evening but came in on Sunday afternoon looking tired and exhausted. She becnrne rlis'-iuiEbl and withdrawn. Probably, we've nil tense because of Tom's return, thought Jessica. • ; • • JTT was like Tom not (o advise them of his movements. The uncertainty made Jessica nervous and distrustful of her own judR- ment. She almost tiuarreled with David upon his return from the coast. "Soon the whole affair will be ended," he told her consolingly. "Just a lillle while longer, although 1 still insist it would have been better for you to have written to Tom that you no longer loved him." "Thai would be cruel and cowardly." said Jessica. They sal in a little wayside restaurant, one scarcely frequented now that the summer was over. Jcssicfi wore the new coat and hat, and David's admiration had quite reconciled her to her extravagance when they set o(I lhal afternoon. But now her pleasure was clouded again by the thought ot the scene ahead with Tom. She shrank from scenes. She told David this and he said, "We'll never have scenes • when we're married." She did not meet his eyes for an instant. When she did, she said slowly, "1 can't imagine being your wife, David." "Why not?" She shook her head doubtfully. "It's more unreal than my marriage to Torn. The nearer the time comes to Tom's return the more any hope that he will release me vanishes. You don't know Tom." "You'll never fail me now, will you, darling?" When David touched her hand she forgot her apprehensions. They were very gay for * little while. ties of the aisiricl; support for » strong professional military force; and adequate funds for flood control drainage projects, river development and improvement of na- tional highways.

She said goodby and her fingers riling to David's convulsively. "II will he just Cor a little while," she promised.
