PAGE EIGHT. DAILY COURIER. CONNELL£ VILLE, PA. II MASTER ofi MO I BY ROY VICKERS WHAT HAS GONE BEFORE. WLTEALTKY Alan Brennairay is in love with Shirley Bane, " beautiful, society girl, utho is secretly engaged to Roger Keiton. Alan, learning that Roger is to marry Shirley, tends ijini $500,000. He takes as collateral shares in a Macedonia de- veiopement believed worthless. After Shirley and I Roger are married, Shirley, ignorant of the loan, is incensed When Roger tolls her Alan is trying to force him to go to Macedonia. Receiving a tip from Cynaz, shady financier, Roger visions the reduction of his indebtedness to Alan. Jealous of Alan, Roger comes to the conclusion the loan was made because of Shirley. VVhen Alan warns uhirley of her extravagance, she tells of her investment in Corto Bellas stock. Roger offers Alan $50,000 and Alan wonders where the money is to come from. Roger resents Alan's probing into his personal" affairs. Next day, the stock drops considerably. That night Shirloy learns that Roger has lost all her inheritance. Roger tent Shirley Alan made the loan to win her and get rid of him. Shirley goes to pay her "debt" to Alan. NOW GO ON WITH THE STORY M CHAPTER XXII. ACEDONIA for me! A safe investment, Alan, if you'd kno*-n Roger; but, of course, you couldn't guess how futile he la or how much more world bluff . . . That doesn't matter now. The point is, I cannot repay by going to Macedonia. So--" She put hor empty cup aside and across the width of the room they looked at one another. "Well. Alan?" Alan turned heavily and went out into tho passage. There was no light hote and he had to grope for Shirley's coat. He came "back with it, and his own. 'Put those boots on!" he barked 'Ileio's, your coat. Get at her, up." She did not move. He told him- ae!f that he would neither explain nor defend himself in any particular, but at once he was explaining and defendincr. "I have nothing to answer you with except the truth and that, I know, would be too simple--too clonn for 5 ou." His angfr shook him. "I spi«nt a half-million on a wedding: gift to you. I gave you U-e man you had toki me you loved. You had told me of him--though not bv n nne--tho evening before--" "I don't think I did. I don't remember it. In any case, you ivould have ignored that. A nameless individual I You would have shouldered him. mentally, out of vour way. You--" "I accepted his existence. When ( discovered his identity. I gave him to vou. I assumed that if ?ou loved him, he was of the type that would only accept a loan and would ·slave to repay it. Macedonia was his way t repayment. When I saw what he was, I let it so. 1 was content to look on it as a irift to vou." She shmufjetl and lifted her brows. "I don't think the nature o_f man is quixotic, Alan. I think it sees what it wants and takes it whon it can. And that's all ... Don't shout at me, please! I have pride, toOi you know. Since TJotrer w i t } not, repay, I--obviously-must." i Hf conUnued to shout at hei, "Get up! Here's vour coat. Where arc your boot??" He took hfr bv an arm and pulled her un. "Put this on. At once, d'you hear'" She drrwled over her shoulder. "It's no use, mv dear Alan. I was afraid you mijrht have sudden and inconvenient scrunlei, so I put the car out of eo_mmkaion as soon as I had got it into your barn." "You--what?" "I smashed the mafmeto. She won't (ro an inch tonight. Unless vou out me out into the rain, I eininlv must stav hfre." "Oh. Dunn you. Shirley!" Sht» slipped back into her chair nnd he paw thnt '-he was frightened HP knew why. Hi» had known fear of his own angrer He triod to Hem the rise of it and failed. "Damn you and damn vou, Shirley! Oh, not for this sillv little you've got us into. Not the · tuff yott'vo believe and made Roerer Keiton the wreck you've helped to tnnkp of him Not for what y./u believe yourself about vour own rotten world and the worthless things vou get from it. ". . · I'm fearing you and despising you, Shirley, because you've slink to this. "You've come to the point where you even Day your debts in the way of the world--the easy way. What do you think yo_u and Keiton owe trie? Five or six figures in a pass-book? Nothing of the kind. You owe me toil I 7 he nerve-rack. the grind, the sweat, the dirt, the thrill, the despair, the joy that went to the making of that money. Can you pay?" He knew he was terrifyinp her. He had a swimminjy vision of her face, paper-white, und her hands raised and clasped at her throat, "Can you pay? Of course you jsnn't. You sneer at Keiton for a orthless coward. What are you? Have you ever worked? Oh, I know you've kept fit-^-and what for? So that you might go on keepinjr fit, aloner with others lilce you. So that, -when they dropped a tip here and ther* you_ might be alert enough to handle it! "But have you e\er worked? At something you abominate, some- thinjr that may in the end be useless, something that may crush you or make you? Ni-ver, Shirley -you've never had the endurance or the honostv or the will, and when I think of what real work mi^ht have mado of you and what ydur 'high world' h is made of you, I could kill you -- I could kill you, Shirley, because I love you so." Something snapped in his brain then; a shutter closed down on that white face and thono clenched hands nnd he was no longer near them. He was out in the rain, in the wild night, struprKlinK against the wind to close the door of the shack behind him; feeling the lock respond at last and thon ficrhtinR his way, step by .tep, across the heather-patch and into the doorlrss barn where she had crippled her oar as her final taunt at -him. He stumbled into tho car and dropped against it' exopnsive cushions. They were simple and smooth nnd scent -d. They must have cost a lot. All money-^rruhbers, the three of them -- and at t \r end of it they possessed nothing Nothing, Noth- inp. Towards diwn, when the wind and rain stopped. Alan dosied in the car. then slept. He woke un a little after every muscle in his bodv achinnr with stiffness. Getting out of tbe car was a slow and nainfu! rrocfss. In those ffw minutes, with tVir tornor of sleep qtil! upon him. life secmprl a remarkably phvsual business. One mifht fliborate cr^fd 1 !, philosophies and endless subtln moral rlintinc- tions, but in the ead the main busi- breathinK and noss wtis moving and beinpr Some over-precious subtlety had driver, him to thp ridiculous act of crampintr himsejf un in a car whon he mtprht havc^ slept comfortriblv on the sofa. Shir!' y had been overwrought hvstrricai and hip-h-faJurin and be had tak»n his rue from her. He stood blinking in the early Autumn sunshine and became more acutely conscious of Shirley's presence in tho cottfj*e twenty yard? nway . . . What an irrational fool a rrmn was tc let a woman tip- ,, · . » . . ! ? # . I ^-* » 4 . . set his life! Perhaps she had left tho cottajre a-! soon as the rnin bad stopped ami walked home Perhaps she wa' dressing. Perhaps she hud dressed and would come out at any moment. · · Ho hnrri'3d away / to the little glen at the back of the cottage where a bum came tumbling down the hill.»ide There he stripped, made the mas], of a pool by sit/ling in it and Iat the burn play over hint. Then he rubbed himself dry and so worked out Ms stiffness. "The thmp: io to try and take a detached view," he told himself as he dressed. "She was hysterical after a row with that little beast, . ~. . Keyed up. She didn't "iriva her own nature a chance. She simply stuek to the log-ic of her deplorable upbringing . . . I was a fool to stress the business bj stumping- off to that barn. H'm! We'll establish the pretence thai nothing happened--we'll both, for- fi-et it." He went into the cottage, tread- inir softly in case she should still be asleep . , . There waa hijt maskintosh and her water-boots near the rrmchair--lying just as he had banpred them down «n the previous night If she bad mad« a fool of herself, for his pa?t he had certainly lost his temper. The sight of those boots brought the scene back with startlinji vividness. Then he thought of the car. He went back to the barn, lifted the hood and examined the magneto. He was no electrician; nnd saw that he could not repair it. Luckily he knew a man in the Til- lapre who could probably manape it and promptly set off to find him. If he were quick he could be back in time for breakfast He supposed lie would have breakfast with Shirlry, then presumably they would never meet again. And that would be just as well, all things considered. Shirley, from the bedroom window watched Alan g-o without wondering where he was going. For tho moment her horizon was encircled by the fact of Alan Bicn- naway as he strode across her line of vision, Prom that distance she could not see his hair nor the lirtes of his face, but only his stride. RoRer strolled. Aian strode. It ·was the stride of a man brim full of energy and youth. "He isn't old -- he only looks old, . . . Perhaps he wants me to set out before he comes back. I won't dp it. I mustn j t run awaj- from him or my nerve will be gone forever." It was not a question of hrr nprve, of course, and ih knew it. but it wns easier to think of it SU like that. "He is hard, hard -- everything about h m is hard," ran her thoughts. "He doesn't want me any more. Well, that's a comfort, anyway! ' It was not a comfort but at the snme time it was not a scourge, Alan had once wanted her enough to ask her to marry him -- had wanted her enough to throw away a huge sum of money in the hope of getting her. And now he no longer wanted her. The hurt went far deeper than tnnt -- 90 deep that her reason could not fathom it. If he had onlv told her that she was not worth a half-million -- if only he had been content to Bpurn her offer of herself and leave it at thatl Instead he had struck at the very core of her bv laughing at her sacrifice -- ly belittling her desire lo pay. "You evpn pav your debts in the way ot your world -- the easy way." 80 AKn had thought it an en-jy way. He thought it bad been ensv for her to enrlure the humiliation of Rogev's confession -- had thoucht it casv for her to honor tho dis- honorabFe bargain that had been made in her name. "It's no use thinking and thinking and going round in circles!" she told herself. She had been doing that for the greater part of the night. She had thought and thought until she had lost all sense of valu«'s and was left only with the numbing knowledge that Roger had made her a defaulter, a cheat and that, sho must remain so all hot life.
