A quarter of an hour in A taxi tf m her toi«a «nf«shiotmbU» »^,.,,on east of'vercy Park. Sh» WM unfamiliar with AJan'a kind of flat and it gav* her some Ut?4« trouble to di*ro*ey It waa on tho second floor and that there was ao olftvator. "H* U funny with nionisyr* shs mu*d. "But I ·Q^POM fchia sort of thinsr anita hia ptirpo*e." ' Alan bJnwelf opened th« doot to her. "Hello, Shirley r h* exclaimed. She thought ihat ho waa surprised io 0e* her. "I gftt your letter about twenty minfitei ago and thought that I w«rtt;d low no time, «h» an- wered, "May J cooae in?" "Of course 1" he agreed. "Yon , e*a help wo find my way about «be, place, t only moved in here this morning and hiveri't quite got the hang of it," "What a funny little place !"·*»· claimed Shirley, cuding in th* diminwtivei hall. "It loots rather cozy." "I hate hotels," exclaimed Alasu i^Anci club* are very little better. Also, if you have to see a lot of poopla on business, neither is much Shirley thought that ovr. **rhen be waa expaeting me," *ho concluded^ "I couldn't M* him ec/ory day at the club." "·There a» four rooms,** Alan w^a, saying. "These two are bed- n joins. , That door'in front is the sitting-room| what, on earth this room ia, I haven't the faintest notion." He opened the door and switched o-j the fight and Shirley found her- ' ins a room, common enough in smaller flat-land, an accommodation room, convertible/with a little troublo from aitting-room into b«d-room. "What exactly is one supposed to do in a room like this?" asked Alan. ' Shirley looked from sofa that could change itself into a bed, to a " that was partly bookcase. A "I don't know One would ha»e to know sornetliini! of the kind of, people that generally live in these 'places. Where do the servant* aleep?'' "The kind of people who live here aa a rule don't have any," be explained. "I'm not having any jsiyseff. 1 eat in restaurants and tho janitor's wife 1» goine tp keep the place clean, tt simplifies ex- Jiitence wonderfully." "1 came to report progress, Alan. I have mre or leas settled things up since 1 f?aw you last." ^'Ofl, goodt" lie said apiirwv- .Jy. "We can talk in here." Shirley again found her attention diverted by the room into Which, ahe had followed him. -"Ia 'it a dinlng-1-oom or a draiv- lug-i'oom ?" she asked. He seemed to regard the question aa in some w«.y profound, and it was- several seconds before he ·nawesred. "You haven t the faintest idea *f how the middle-classes live!" he remarked. "I'm s-fraid you'll find things frightfully hard." "But I'm never going to live-this sort of life," she protested. It's Macedonia or -nothing for me." " 'Or nothing' i" he repeated. '"That's a mere plirasc, you know. And, don't forget, even if you do your part, successfully, it may be that nothihg will come out of the venture. For it Is, a venture--a ffamble." Shirley smDed. The money part of the «nterprif'« might be a (.(arable, .'but the essence of .th* whole thing from-her point of view \viis a certainty. "That lawyer got all my things in a ' f o w hours," she said briskly, "I'm eoinc to sell the diamonds Aunt Marion 'gal* me and my, other jewilry. Tb,e coupe t going to b* eold and he think* I ought to get a thousand If or it. I' ve left th* limousine to Roger--I didn't want tp grab everything. Altogether, by the Urn* I go t* Macedonia, -I *haU have about ten tho-i- ·and dollars lor expense*.'' "That would go a long wjy here if it were carefully, managi d," he pointed out, "It wouldn't 1 turn Itatelf Into a half milien, Alan--and, that 9 what this ha» got to do. When c*n you atari: telling me how to begin?" "Tonight, Jf you' tike," Ee answered, "Now, in fact." "Y«a, please," aaid Shirlsy. don't .even know what it ia yet remember Roger saying It was iofitiething 'to do with 'a mine*" "There's a mine,' a at;ing of quarries and a hundred and twenty miles of railway,", he an-rwereo. "The minei and th* qvaniea are naeleae without tha railway. On either aid* of the railway, {or the whole length, the company owns laad which ia now practically wild but which could be made ri ?h agri- cultural'land'once It WM opened up by the railway. , "The railway ta partly built but work cannot go on without government protection. Attempts hftv,e been made from time to time by people aent out by Cuthbort Kelton to got this protection n ad they have nil failed hitherto. So the whole thing ia derelict" * "That's easy enough to understand," aaid Shirley. "1 have to persuade tha government thac it IB in th« intereaU of th* country to ret th* thing going." ^Yes. It won't be th* government itself; it will b* tho local deputies of th* government. You. will find all nationalities mnongst them -- mainly Greek. 'They all have B'rench aa a aeeond Language and you'll be able to talk to them all right. But they will wk you innumerable questions and although you wo n't/need to be a mining or railway 'jxpert you will have to know aa vouch about the details of the undertaking as if you were, · say, Cuthbert ICelton. That's where you will have a bit of a job. It will ail be strange to you--as strange as this flat." ''How much are you foing to teach me 'of it?" Shirley isked. ,"The whole lot if you 1 ike. It's not difficult in its essence. It doesn't demand any special gift or any special knowledge--the handling of money never does. I collected a good deal of stuff for Roger. J'U juat get it f you'll wait." He left the room and returned with a tin box, which he unlocked, first- there waa a large acale map of the country. A* he spread it out, Shirley came and looked over his sheuldei-.i then, finding her' hat in the wajp, took it, off. Alan traced the (proposed, eours) of the railway for her. His comi tents on the country interested her, 'There were questions on her par t and it was midnight before they had finished with the map., Then they came to the reports and history of the company--Sta records of failures--its bitef periods oi optimism. / While Alan talked and she interrupted from time to time with questions that involved digressions, a. new world was revealed to Shirley--a world in which mei', judged by the Westbary standard, behaved with extraordinary restlessness. They would camp in thi middle of a Macedonian plain I-IKS suddenly telegraph to Chicafro for a pump. The entire activities Jof the company seemed to be suspended over that pump. By the ijnse the pump arrived the engineer who had ordered it would have died of dywntery--«ad another engine«r after some months' delay -;TonUl be sent out. She remembered Roger's father --a jolly old man, whose tragedy m life seemed to b« that he had aever been made a muster of aounds. And oil the time he was carrymjr these vast anxieties in hi* heai--vtf tkq engineer who died on' th« plain while waiting for, the imp; then there was that cabl* ,_Uinz him that 1.ho bandits had broken the reservoir and flooded th« mine. , * IWoney had always seemed to her an affair of bonks, checks and legacies and jnat--"having plenty. 1 * The sense of revelation waa strong .upon her. At tamta there waa con- funion but she was always ablii to clear the confusion with her own n»sstiona. As she pieced together eafth scrap of knowledge, ahe 'fctt thdit ahe waa being taken behind the scenes of huifian aociety. ,Sliti soon forg«4 h« f e » r that ttte preliminary work .would be a mi ire maze of mathematics. To he.r it was a pei-sonal drama--a string of men like Alan had, lost their lives or their courage in try- in;* to make a fortune for Cutb- beit Kelton. ·· * f -She became unmindful of place ami'time, unmindful even of Alan Shi was dimly conscious of surprise on hia part, of pleasure in ; her intei-ewt Suddenly ahe noticed that his voice wsu hoarse.

"I'm mo»t fearfully sorry, Alan. ·Ttn m»*t fearfully *lad, Shirley," he interrupted. Some queer quality in hia voice startled her--startled him, too, it seemed, for he hurriedly added: "It's ' some thirteen hour* aince you've' had any food.
