FRIDAY, JANUARY 10, 1930. p'uj, FA i CHAPTER XXXVI. H--Mra. Grier. I am so sorry." She toiclt by hor side and put her arms around EnM. "Yon must be very brave, Mrs. Grier." Enid nodded her head. She was mute. Th-ay were rmiet foi' a moment. Then Misa Tobin took her hand and said: "You mnst be very strong, Mra. Grier. Try to hold on to yourself. If you can you must ?ot give way. Trjr "or the baby, dear." . Enid fiurnd her voi;e. "I will. !Toby." Ned -- Ned ·-- dead -- burned to death--she had wanted him to go on that trip--Ned--he'd, been he;r husbEUid---she'd slept nt his side-she'd 'been untrue to him--he'd died--did he know? Dick--Dick hnd fried to save him--Dick, the brave, Dick the fearless--tho flames--the smoke--Dick, was he oil right--did he know about .the baby--when would sho get word? Ned--ami Dick--had he received the musTi'tgiva way; she couldn't. She wasn't only herself now--sho was herself, and the baby. Sho was thj babv's life. Sho wouldn't give wu;/. Oh, Dick --when will you come to me Dave--Pauline 1 Sh« . must telephone---yes-Dave---- She picked np the paper'again and read It.' Hor son's father waa a brave man, "Come ' in and lie'down, Mrs. Grier. I'll telephone Mr. Monroe," Miss ^obin said, helping JSnid to rise from her chair. Yes--Dave--she'd talk to him, Enid lay on the bed ibid looked at the ceiling. Her whole life with Ned passed before her eyes like a moving panorama--and now h« was dead--burned to death--and Dick had tried to save him--had he received that letter--why had Bhe written it just then -- why 'hadn't she waited -- but she had to "Mr. Monroe left m the -morning train, Mra. Grier. He will be here this afternoon," Mies Tobin told Enid "when she returned from telephoning. What was there to do? Just wait. Wait for Davt--and above all, keep cairn. She had to. Would they bring Ned home? Was Dick all right? Would he recover? Sometimes thoso reports were- inaccurate -- and it was so far away. How cpuld sho get e Sho thought and thought. Telephone tho Oil Company. Sho arose quickly and started to the telephone _ "I'll'do it." offered Miss Tobm. The Oil Company had but the bare factt which Enid had read herself. How fearful just to he there and do nothing. But Pave would b« here in the afternoon. . D:v7'e arrived and sat quietly by bis .lister. They had grown very closei since their mother's death and during the months of Enid's wailing for the baby at Sorana. "J.f Dick ia well ononjjh he is bound to send some message, Enkt." he said. If Dick is well encngh--was ho alivn? "I told the operator to forward any telograra horo, Said, if they ehould como. It is much surer," "That was thoughtful of you, ·Dava," said Enid. Davo wihed that s'ho would cry, It v/aa bettor for women if they crie'l. Thia hopeless inertia--nothing to do--no way of getting word. It waa awfuL · The afternoon wa.i endless. Dinner camo. Enid rjuised tho baby and Mi*a Tobin put him to bed. ,Then the telephone rang. It WHB the telegraph office. Yes, a cablo for Mrs. Grier. Davo was on the ·-phone. Enid clutched the arm ; of nur chair. It \vns as if someone else -- not she herself, Enid G ier, was experiencing this. "One moment," David said, !ak- ing his pencil and an envelope out of his pocket. "Yes -- Tampico. Ned died on Thursday. Impossible to bring him home. Will attend to burial here as you would wish it. My dee nest sympathy" -- yes -- go on -- "bringing your letter of March first, which he did not receive, and o'her correspondence, Including c ible ·announcing son's birth. My -on- gTattilatioiis and hope you are both wfill. Hope to sail in week's tune, Dick." Dave hung ' u p the receiver and put his arms around Enid. "Isn't that Ilko old Dick to cover everything and leave no doubly hi your mind as to the last news Ned had from you," said Dave with great af fectiosi and respect lr- hia voice. He'd never received the letter Oh, Dick -- so glad you told he never knew -- thnnk God-- -and the baby would not be disjrrac'»d -burying Ned. ' He'd stand by tho gravs perhaps in aomo little e me- tery with crosses all arovnid -and wait until it was all -- his heart breaking. But he'd tried to save him. Yes -- he tried. And he hoped to leave :n a w-.-ck'a time -- he wag coming -"Ned's poor mother,", whisrpered Enid and went into the nursery. Miss Tobj,n brought the baby's bassinet into Enid's room 5 that night and slept by her in the twin bed nest to hers. "We 'might sa w"ell go ritjht down tt Serana, don't yon '.think so, Enid 1 Dave aaked in the morning. "Are you .strong enough.? What did the doctor say?'* "Yes," replied Enid -- Sera aa -- her haven -- her mind ·would straighten out there -- and she would wait for Dick. "I'll cabin Dick today thai; we ore leaving, so that he can g-.t in touch with yon as soon an h : returns,"- Dave said, ao it' he had read Enid's mind. Did Dave ;,t7ess anything? Oh, no -- -that was natural. Dick's rablc came saying hi waa sailing. Enid counted the days and eagerly searched tho shit ping ne..'s in the San Francisco papers for any notice of hia ship.- How different the days now -- riot like tho others of waiting before the baby was !)orn. Why, she waa busy all dny. Remarkable alt tho things ther" are to do for a baby-- the cicar little "helpless lamb -- -wond.rful to have one of your very own "Radio from Dick," Dim had said, coming into her cabin. "He arrives on Friday and wili come right down." Enid's face did not change:, but when she lifted her son from his crib she held him close to he: and Bait), '"Your father is coming," hor eyes were like stars, And then n terribjo me ment came to har. Miss Tobin vra? gent for! . When Toby left, they both wept with their arms around each other dear Toby -And today -- Friday -- DiifcY ship waa to dock today. She'd s en it in the paper, verifying his ra iio -Dick -- when would it land -- what, time? It had said noon -- but that might 7tiean anything -- there .·iiljrht be a fox -- he'd have to se · his mother and father. Sure! ·/ he would get there by tomorrow -Saturday. Then Dave had como in rintf said that Dick ought to Rret the; e by Sunday. Perhaps, though, he anight; wait and spend Sunday wit. i bin family. But he was aure he would telegraph, How could he wait until Sunday or Monday? He wouldn't, Enid knew hc3 would come to her --but of course uhe couldn't say a .vorci. That evening juat be fora d i n n e r the mofoi.iKe ctunu to Dave, Dick waa Icavintr that ovrnlne bv iv.otor. wore ;Had missed the afternoon train, so would co^ne, right along. Dick--what time v/ould that be --why ha'd have to drive afl night --when would he get there? Ettid could hardly eat her dinner. "··' "Well, old Dick will be here In tho morning, Enid," Dave said a« they parted before groing to bed, and he gave her arm a g-entle pressure, thinking 1 of tho pain which she was to suffer o:n hearing of Ned's drjjth. "Wonder what he'll think of his namesake: I suppose he'll want to hold him and you'll b«t scared to dtjath." He laughed. Dick--their baby in his arms--· safer than any place in the world. It was goimfj to happen. Tomorrow she would see heir beloved and aha could look into Ws eyes an,d know it'was'good and right for 1 her to allow her gaze to rt-st on him as long as she wished and feel the love shining in them for him. Tomorrow She lay on the bed and tried to read. Then, she went to the door. Why--there would be no wagon at the foot of the p;rnde to meet him if he came--but that didn't make any difference he'd walk up--yes--she knew . he would · It wait onlj' four o'clock. If sho could only; go to sleep again. Sho looked at die baby and pulled the coverlet np onuer Ms little chin and tucked his 'hands und6r^~ycs, hfs ear was flat under his precious little hc-ad. ' ' ' Then--was' it? Far .»ff--very, fax off--was that e. motor? She and liatened. Yes--or wua she ; ifesaginingr'it? Wius it the wind?

As aho rolled them below l;er knees, she remembered that Miss Tobin had warned her against, chilling her legs. Sha wont into tho living-room and brushed her hair back in tho dark. . . At the door she heard tho chugrspTig of the mouSr distinctly. Why he mast bo at tha foot of the grade by now. Sho waited, The engine had stopped, flow still it was--only the faint howl of a coyete--way, ivay off across the canyon. How long would it tnkfl him to walk up the grade? It took about a half an hour in tint', spring wagon. Gould lie walk that fast? He wan ab strong and he was used to mountains. Eiidlcfls that half hour--perhaps ha wasn't coming up after ali. He waa so coTisidm 1 ^-. He mighi think it would disturb them. Ho v/ns going to soe his son--he would conic--no matter what happened. Slie knew he would come. What waa that? Wasn't ihnt the reffu- lar stop of a rnnn walking?* Nearer--nearer--he was coming. Her heart waa bcjifcing so wildly that she could hardly breathe. Tha baby .stirred in his sleep--sho heard him--he had heard it, too. He might cry. · Phe didn't want Dick to .hear him cry the first t.imo he. saw him, 'Quickly she gathered her baby np and wrapped him in the warm blanket which waa over him. She walked to the door and waited--It was getting just a HtUo light now. The birds were moving m tho trees -- gently -- she could hear faint chirpiJig. His step on the porch.' Holding the baby .on one arm, Enid opi;nen the door. He was there--~.iis arms wero around them, his face next to hers the soft little faca of their son's ajrainKt thrtrs. "My beloved." "My love."

Tavlti vraa to call me nt moonrino, which I judffad to he nbont ten o'clock. I didn't sleep lor a wlillo. The c«t- "ter pitched -violently in the eroas gen. raised by tide and wind, hammering with her bown on the wator till you might have thought sho would staro herself In.

Everything about rto was white foam and svraling water; I felt sand beneath my tooa, but could not tfrlp It, bocause the abort, breaking waves had me at their will, and wore knocking ma about a s . a. child batters a toy.

Aud that, with considerable difficulty, wo did, securing what won left of her to one of tho big black stones, so t h a t she might not bo carried owuy by out- Kolng tlle. I'avltl, after this, found a Uttle hole--you could hardly cnlJ . I t cave--among tho rocks, and dragged himself into U, covering,Ills Ituu, wet body, HO far an hn could, with tt muss ot seaweed.

Of course, that did not atop me from exploring; 1 had to flnd out whoro we were.

I had soon a plla of coconuts heaped up at the foot oC a palm, '. . It would have been about twenty minutes after landing, when I waa gqttlng · well wanned up wtlh njter- ciso, that I ran across the houses. They wero two or three only, mere hovels thrown together of brushwood and palm.

It had : looked a'good tie when he bought it, tliick and lustrous; but now, under his nerrou.i finders, it was thinning to the dimensions of a shoe lace. He tugged frantically---and the silk split. Alan laughed. Hia l a u g h t e r steadied him, He looked round his littered belongings and compared Ihem with the dingy walla and hangings. Against such a background even the most battered of his loRther cases looked opulent. What had made him pick out this .place? He answered hia ovm.ques^ tioii and the answer steadied him still further.. ' "I came back here because, in a sense, I started from here. I Wanted to show-roy'Belf that I've done what 1 set otit to do. It's so curiously hard to rculiiie---" He lit a cigarette ijid tried yet again to realize things. The successful culmination of seven years' struggle, the professional and social solidity that could never again bo challenged, the two and a hulf millions lyijtg at hiii bynk---nothing dream-like about these. And yet till now hia waking consciousness had not fully grrasped them; perhaps because till now there had beftn no time. This was his first holiday after neven grinding Mexican years. With that thought came at laat a p genuine relaxation; and with the relaxation came tho memories that were tho onlj' rnoasiire of his achievement. . . . Downstairs in that hotel, seven years ago, Shirley had had tea with him; the day before he .left. Shirley had .slipped out of the rush an': glitter of her world . nd come to (hia holo of a place and nniilcd at him ovor cakes and icea. It was a lime when the fashion hncl nin to big black wits: Shirley's had been tilted sidewayj and backwards somehow and her faco had seemed to stund out acrninst a background of darkness, white and rose and infinitely appealing. Fn those seven years the sound-mom- ory of her voice had grown dim,' lut the memory of hnr face under tlin black hat was vivid---some* times tortiiringly vivid. He could remornbcr her voice best when he could remember her actual words. To him it seemed she bud odd little tricks of phrase. There had fallen a sj.'ence--a silence at the wrong tune--a few minutes before she would have to KO. He had offered her a penny for hor thoughts. "Well, really and truly"--it wae a favorite old gesture of theirs and meant that she was going to lie-"really and truly, I was admiring myself." He waited--nrtd then canio the truth. "We've been to- 'ffother. for an hour and twelvu.min- utes and not by the faintest flicker of an eyelash have I shown that I'rn sorry you're fjoirijr." And then. abruptly: "Corne back, dear old Alan." There had been, or be thought ·there- had been, la tiny pause, be-* fore the."old Alan;" It had lived in his mpmory as "Come back, dear." · · , She had got up then and," bend-j ing ; acrosa the tea-table, said quick-] ly and prosaically, "I, know, know. you will make a fortune." And I then she'had flitted off ten minutes or so before there was any need, leaving him staring at the tea things. "I know you .will .make a fortune." Sbiriey w u a , t w e n t y then; she was almost fanatically i n , l o v e with life, flhe waa b e a u t i f u l ; her father's- income- could hardly be her, but not blinded by hi» . love. f f - ' U i e - real Shirley were 'never ijorn his. love .would ba. mere .wlst-i ful regret, if she sh^no forth, tri' his. reward- would b» ' jreat,, ' ' So he hatl left it on the laps of ;hc goi.4.
