HERE will be a good deal to do during the next few week, i," said Alan, "Yoa will find that f he hotel will get under your feet crery five minutes. Mxy not put up here? It would save both of us a food deal of time." "That's rather a 'food ide»,"3aid Shirley. "Th inks, Alan, if you're sure I shan't be in your way." "Not in the least," he assured her. "This place is quite big enough for frr/o, A« to the respectability part of it " "Oh, that " said Shirley contemptuously. After Shirley had gone bick to the Felton to pack ap and pay her bill, Alan, lingering over a pipe, tried to tak» stock of the latest development and found it extraordinarily difficult. He wandered through the four rooms. He decided to jjive up his own room to Shirley. There weir no complications at all in his mind when he invited her to stay at th- flat. Mrs. Sibley had made it clear that no one would believe the truth. To sleep undqr the same riof would, therefore, have no significance ona way or the other, And if they .were really going into the Ma -cuo'iiion business, wore really goinp to engage their passage and make nil the arrangements for t/avelmg, there was obvious convenience in then being together. Ho had been wholly tinconifcioita of Shirley's sex or personality when he had (jivan the invitation--and now already he had »tarted worrying; about her personal comfort. He went downtown to see a lawyer, the i came back to his club for lunch. A page handed him a note. _ "Dear Brenrmway: Can you spare me u minute in the office," ha read, tmd the signature was that of the secretary. He went at onco to the office. Cardew, tne secretary, received him with, i, suspicious warmth. "Ah, my dear Brennaway, I ve scarcely se:n you since you'we been back. How did the rest-cure j;o? "Pit as a fiddle, thanks," said Brennawa;-. "The boy juat brought me your note." "Ah! Yes. Yen. I wanted to have a litde chat. You see--the devil of it la--well, you know perfectly welt, old man, that Una little job I've tfeken on--often I feel I was a fool to do it--anyhow, you know perect'y well that one may well have to say a damned unpleasant thing which one would never thi; k of say ng In one e private capa:ity." "I can gu vss «'hat you mean, Cardew," «nd Alan. "Rut how the devil the nuws has spread, 1 don t '"icri u o forgetting that Kelton i - ' a member," said Cardew. "And the fact IB. rid man, there o a motion--" "M.v tit a.r Cardew, you can sorely count on me not to cuuae any unple.i-.untncsB tn the club," put in Alan _ ,, "l.ft UP go on, Brennawoy, nleatkd Cnrdew "1 am dimply S !n- to o for you a suggestion. I sir'L'ost th.'it you refrain from actunily putting in an appearance hero--ur til---well, until you and the lady ara married." Akin got up. "I'll chink over your advice, Cardew," he said. "Many thanks. I'll let you know tonight." He loft the club without the faintest intention oi considering the secretary'!! advice. He felt it, just a little, sis the portpr saluted him for the lust tine. The Rtcn- riaways had teen members of the Luk« fur many generations. The I.uke, i\s every member believed, was thi; mosi; companionable and the most tolerant, the most kindly club in the world. But th-s Luke con d not make him marry Shirley. He did not want to marry Shirle '. He wanted to s«« her try^Ao m urry him for money, t^ hear her 1 and him out unlimited apple sauce about Macedonian Development, , wanted to see her shirk the real work and let him finis.'i the job 'y falling in lovp with her. There ~»as a tacit -onspsracy on the part of everybody in the world to make him marry .* hirlry. First there was Mra. Sibli y. The lawyer, while giving comfortable assurances about tha rrlt, had tacit!y assumed that he would marry aa soon as the law pr rmitted. Now the Luke had added i ji quota. "I wonder when S lirley is goinp to begin--I wondei whether she has already begun?" After lunching ai a restaurant h« went back to th · flat. Aa he entered the block t te janitor approached him. "Mrs. Brennawa) has arrived, sir, but had to go ou. again. I wn- to Ray that she'd be back about 7. I've taken all tha lu {gage up, sir," "Thank you," s.ud Alan, and made for the stare .»e. Mrs. Brennaway! He had irmtel Jliirley to stay at the flat, but he had mout certainly not invited } er to call herself Mrs. Brerraaw iy, Here was an issue. He wou i nek her why she had called her elf Mrs. Bren- nawuy. In the flat he sat down and wrote to the Luke -f.-jigninK mom- beralilp. This hel ed to fan his anger against Shir ey. Fie would use this to make he f come out into the open. The hours of It nolinpss in the flat dragged on, I's would not be in any way unpUwzut about it. He would just s~* 1'CF to say exactly what material Advantage shr expected to denv from the fact of his being co-res »ond«'nt. Perhaps she %vo ild come In before seven o'clocl. It was very borinj; sitting alor i in the fiat. It had been easy e laugh to while away the idle ho» rs in Vermont, but his rent-cure vi is fininahed and he had left the it h of work. At six o'clock he bej. an listening for her footsteps, wo itlpnng, at first indifferently and then anxiously, what was she doin ·,, She would fii d it different, shopping and gi'tt nj* about in New York without nei car. She had probabiy never v alked about before in her life. "Therefore she is probably quite nnus«d to trafifc, ' came the startling tmt highly li gicaJ conclusion. By seven o'clock ie w:is convinced that »he had be n kilted, ami at five past oeven b · heard her footstep and rushed o open the door. "Hello 1" he exclaimed. "I thought you'd be nm ovr»r " "I haven't h.-id ime," she lauded back. "I've bad a simply terrific day. I must hit Jown ard gasp a little." "You look tire i out," he said as she dropped mt i a chair in the silting room "Hi ve you b-en looking after yourae f properly? Ilad any food?" "Not since bj akfiuit," she answered. "I've I een round to the consulate and l'^ ft found out heaps about Macedonia Thun there were those books you advi»*ed rne to get --1 had a chsse or those." He looked at ' er disapprovingly. JShe had been t v e r t a t i n g her Strength and hhf ought to havo had more sense aftei a totally sleepless night. It was ust when one wafl below par that ill those street accidents occurrec "Oh, by the v ay, when 1 turned up here with n jj thmgs from the Felton, the ja iHor didn't know what on fcarth t make of me And 1 suddenly Raw how awkward it was for him- -a strange young ^ twining np at one of hts flats witli Ijta of luggage--so I told him that I was Sirs. Bren- jaway, Renember to back me up f necessity should arise." "All right," said Alan. "Look here, as JOMI aa you've got your wind we're i.'oing out to dine." * » * A we«k hiter writs were served and the divorce proper had begun. The inwient, unimportant in itself, brought Shirley's thoughts back to Horer. With a sense of detachment she thought of him, frightened and vengeful, trying to snatch at wrfety by striking at tho man who had benefited him. She despised hi i twisted reasoning as much as his twisted morality. The belief that divorce proceedings would make it impossible for Alan to take any line he wished witli regard to his own misappropriation--a eat spitting at an elephant. Thus she shrugged tha thought at Roper oot of ner Iif9 and got on with her work. One evening, n couple of days after the writs had been served, sho noticed that lie was particularly moody ovtr dinner. When thoy got back to the flat ahe asked him if there were anything on his mind. "On mv mind--no!" he an- ST»«sr«d sharply. "L*t'» do Ilia work fit-lit anyway." They worked us usual until midnight. JWnen she got up to go to b«d, he* pulled ft Tetter from aia pocket and put ' t back again. "I've heard ,!rom Groton, my lawyer, tod*/," !« vegan. "Kognr htm stjpul lUd for a settlement on you, aa 1 behove you know. Groton wants to enow what I'm oinfc to do and I should he glad to hear your views." So th»i wst? what oad ue«n troubling aim, al*c thowght and wondered vrhy. TV, bilked fchmt over," «h« anid briskly. 'There's no trouole about H at all, Alan, lie said that 11 that was necessary was for you to give mtj in tho deed of witlcr-ient- full aad unrestoctcd control of the, capital." "Oh. did o«! put tn Alan, t "'And ^hen that's b««n don* end' ail the formalities sttendti to 1' can simply hand the wholu thing back to vou." "I sea. And will that method oe. conveme H to you?"
