SATUJEUDAY, F12BRUARY 8, 1930, . DAILY GOTTRIUR, CONNELLSVI JL.E, FA. ROY · CKAPTI2R XXVI, S it too ditecaK for Roger'.' Roger couldn't have tse£ his knowledge of t.iw and without that-- do yoa think bo's any c).eveaf«r than II" "No." He heaitated. "But thearp are other things to consider beside the business in hand oat there. Their police system isn't the same aa our* -- it's a very rougli population--murder is almost an everyday event,' ' "Knives and b-allets -- they would havft* killed Roger jtvrt the same na they would kill ana. No more, no leB3. Try again. Alan." With a thrill oi t*u«nph sh« sstw that he really waa trying; again--saw that at lost he took her words seriously and genuinely wished to dissuade her.. . "It's a malaria country -- ttnd thers are all sorts of other dJs- eaaes." ."Which are harmleea to men and fatal to women?" she taunted. "That's no good, Alan. I want tho diseases-- I want to go in terror oJf the bandits.*' "Hold on, Shirley. You'll make yourself hysterical in, a minute." "That's an easy anaer," she flung back. "Snoer nt me after I've backed out of the job, Alan. In th* meantime, give me the papers, show me what 1 have to do, and sea whether I to*? to do it or not." "My dear girl, it's fantastic. You hav* no idea what life is like in a place like that." "Come hsclt to the cottage and give me the papc-ra." she urged* "Certainly not.\ I've told you-r- n "But you must -- -you must I" ahe cried* ' "You' « laughed at me last; night and yoti were right. You are not right to laugh at mfe now-- you muatn t rob me rf the right to pay my debts in the way you yourself havn taught me.' * ' She had taken him by the arm and waa urging him back to the cottage. They walked on m stlenc«. Qnee aho looked up at him and saw the hr-.rd smila 'playing about his lips. "Very well 1" Ha said suddenly. "You can have is your own way." Something in her bridled at his tone. It was aa if he had udded: "I believe thia is all high-falutin' r-- yon won't stick to it" Never- ttusleas, she was elated at getting from him oven (Jiat nominal con- csaion, "I have stock to tbe fae,e value of a million and a quarter," he continued. "I'll make you a present of them. They are wast* paper now. If you can *et the thing in order their money value may go up to their face value or oven., beyond." . ' . . " ] ' ' . , . "You -must put mo OQ| the same footing aa Roger," ahe warned him. He nodded. "I waa ready to coach him in tha detniLs. If. I had gained the concession I intended to provide v/»rk ing capital and go out there mybelf to superintend." "When can yon coach mo?"tsha demanded eagerly. "When can I start?" She knew perfectly well that he still doubted her. To remove that doubt was now te first necessity of life. Roger, the divorce, and Alan wero; ail forgotten. ..... ;. "I should think yon would be ready to start in about three . weeks," he answered. "Yes, I will put you on £ha samo footing Eoger." A?;ain he watt smiHng and she knr,w that he wn* making another mental reservation. "A* a woman traveling by your- tmltj yon 'will sncountor certain difficulties that would not havo traublftd him," he added, "So If yon have roall;? made up your mind 4« go, I will go with you." clenched hor fits to pre- ·in the Full-roan, Alan sitting crosswise v ao that his eyes did not rest upon her. He had looked at her often while they had be on talking I and, looking, bad seen her/alone and : bewildered, ' the iivwaemorial woHjaJB' bereft of her mate and desolate. There had come the maddening imputae to pick her mi in his.arms like a child and comfort her--^-an,d thereby! destroy the difference bar tween her and all the we.'Uc, pretty, clinging woman in tho world. As jtho l*eal sped on, hia attitude toward Shirley had made him wretched. He would punish her for that Uy letting hor ; learn that her determination to pay her debts and stand upon 1 ' her own feet was a mere IJoatrical. gesture. To that end he would gi va her erery possible,chance to make good ii the Macedonian project--he would see that at no 3ti.ge should aha encounter an insuperable ob- stsicle - , ." · ·'·'·· ".' -." ;.'·'" He would punish Wnwelfi toc~-- that weak, eWofclonal pert of hitn that basely wanted to protect her, adore her and pet her, that struggled against reason and morality --and It would now go on strog-; jling every time he saw her, until t langtiiahed in the knowledge that Jhirley was nothing but a beautiful ocdy, tor aalo, mnd so act worth the purchasing. · .

When she-got.to Macedonia--but of course she would never get as far as sailing. Before then she would discover insuperable obstacles that "were not insuperable. "Why not try the Felton ?"- he sngrested. ' ·"· . · *Yes. Tlmt's a good idea. I'll go straight there," she answered, and he told himself that he waa vastly amused^ He had begun loving Shirley at the FelUm aeven yeara ago, when she hail come to have tea with him. He would go to th« Folton now t« hava.tea.with her--and to begin unloving her. There: was another long silence and then: "I shall sell the diamonds Autit Marion gave trie. That ought to pay my expense? out tiiera. Be" think I havo dose to a pr vgnt h*rself from crying out. For tha third time that morning tho universe as oho understood it hac turned itoclf upiside down.

TJ you want -any help In. managing your affairs--help, of course; of an" arithmetical nafcurft ·I shall be. very pleased.", "Thanks--but I'm quit-e good at arithihfttic," she answerto. That .waa as it should[ ba, tie though--as he wanted it. She would make a fine show of financial 1 independence to start with; And later, of coarse, ::he would accept a "loan" from him. In Springfield they had time for a leisurely dinner. Wli-sn he had discovered this, h« had rather dreaded the prospect ot a long- tete-a-tete. But onc« they had sat down together he came perilously near to enjoying it. As they made their wy onto the platform she announced her intention of going straight'to bed. "I shall be in the next car," he informed her, "in case you feel ill or want anything special." Aa he said it he felt it was silly. Because he wat; an emotional fool w h o s e romantic idealism had not been beaten out of him--yet. They nfera Rearing before Shirley awoke froni a sleep of exhaustion. She awoke with a strr .ge gladness, enjoying the rumble of ihe train, (n a state between sleeping and vaking sho knew only that she waa rushing to a new life which would be lived far away from the inuiband who had humiliated her, far from tho paltry nightmare of AU-e'« dreaJd- ful. sympathy. She »at up in her berth, fully awake and intensely alive. Alan , was coming to Macedonia with her. la the thought was, an exultation which she refused to analyze. It did not irw.tter in the .least why Alan intended to accom|teny her.. Nor did it matter in tho least whs she was glad hij was coming. Alan had changed.

I'll get your tiling* put on a-taxi," he iroiswered. . ; Some five- minutes later he was : · holding open the door for hor. She thought he was going to get in too. He banged the door. "I've told him t« drive te .th* Pulton',"" he wkl. "I shall be at the club--the I/uke, you know." She nodded and a moment later the taxi had started, Sho had been foolish to thitJc he would cbm« with h«r. There would havo bean no reason for bin presence there. She had a lot to attend to any- w-r^why should he' come? There followed tha tiresome busineaa of engaging her rpom. T« her surprise the rathe* indifferent young man in the office became suddenly sjver-polite when Shirley had signed the."register. / "Well, now, Mrs, Kelton, you'd like to see your room at once, I expect. I'm giving yon Number Sixty-three." . This ro,om w.«» a good deal better than Shirlay had expected-- · she had thought of the Felton as reprosenting p-jverty.

The porter scratched his, head. .', It was an uiattnjal request at the Felton. · ^ 4 Well, now, madam, I wonder who that would be?" The process jf wondering ueemed to lead nira no further.
