"By the newspaper which pub- ished the illustration of the ring." The superintendent tapped her pencil against her teeth. "You :hink you know Ibis girl?' ' '^Jessica said, "Oh, no."

The superintendent explained that she planned to visit the patient for a moment or two. The door opened. They stood inside a room with one shaded lamp beside the high bed. The girl who lay there never moved. The superintendent motioned to Jessica to follow her as she moved forward. Jessica could take in every detail: the slight figure concealed by the bedclothes, a bit oE blond hair which showed beneath, the bandage that covered practically her whole lace, the closed eyes, Whsil would it mean to Icavn that this siil was Lucy? Trouble. Grief. Jessica look a step backward. The superintendent said irmly, "Speak to her. If you hnve nyone in mind, speak her name." J cs? i ca *s lips were st i ft a rid .remblhiR. She came closer. She jcnl over the bed, and suddenly the tight lids flew open and jitsl for an instant a pair of agonized gray-blue eyes looked deep inlo her own. 'Lucy!" She pushed past the superintendent's stout figure and stood so close that she could catch the hurried breath of the injured girl. , "Lucy!" she cried despairingly. The lids covered the betraying blue-gray eyes. "Lucy!" She had her voice under control now. "Please — Tom's home. Lucy. He needs you." There was a slight flicker at .the eyelids. The superintendent said "Come with me." She led Jessica into the hall outside. "1 can't let you stay any Longer/ 1 she said, "but we'll try to do what we can to persuade her to see you again.
