"Your housekeeper directed me to th( garden." "I'm »o-ry," laughed Shirley, "Pm afraid I Khali not bo in the country long cnoogh t'.o train her properly. I wasn't really drea ruin)?, MonniruT Maurois. I was only thinking ho-w nice it would be to fly across this bay, perch on Mount Olympus and then fly tiaoc again." "That could easily bo arranged," said Maurcis seriously, "But not this mOrmiijt, I'm afridd. I win, however, offer you a jj»oor substitute. I Hiul called in the hope^that you and your husband would lat ma take you for a ran and isho\v you a bit jf the country. I had in mind ei Httle jaunt, of a hundred kilonietres perhaps, that would enable us to bo back before the light fAils." T "How · perfectly delightful of you!" exfi'aimpd Shirley. "But, unfortunately, Alan lei't about an hour ago---ho'? spending two or three days up-country and I am sill alone." "That is m the nature of a catastrophe," sn d Maurois. "If he had consulted rue first I could perhaps have mario his journey a litUe aasier. It 3 a lovely morning- A day to take tho air. It emboldens me to repert my invitation." "And rn · to accept it," said Shirley. Thanks tremendously. Give me five minutes to wrap up." Five minute* later, wrapped In furs, she w:\a tilttinR b«filde him in mn open ca". In front was a man servant slt;tnR beside the chauffeur, and Shirley wondered whether he were *n armed policeman In plain clothes. The car took therm through tho iraburb of SOUamaria eastwards, and in ten minutes hthd brought them to opoa country. "Ho-« beautifully '/OUST man drives," said Shirley. "'This is the itirst oft of f»sh air I've had for H month or more." "He is », niw man," anrwered Maurola. He is not yet fully trained. But he shows promise." Shirley nodded indifferently. She did not want to talk--wanted merely to loung back and enjoy Che rush through tho uili. As tf he had porcitiived thin Maurois inade no further remarVis, yet subtly conveytid the impression that he was vastly enjoying hiaiself. For an hoar or more they ran through ratabliing hills, m fringe ot the Balkan rjungc. Thun, after a long climb tw a grossly plateau, Mauroie gtoppiiM.1 the car. "I thlnit *e will lundit here," he «aid. "While liny man in getting it ready, let ni stroll to thiD top there iimd I will aliow you a abasing val- Ilisy." Shirley ahnl:red the ttttley. with- diut effort She was even enthusiastic, but her mnthusiasitn vas less for the valley than th'ii occaiijon. She was eajoying hernelf, enjoying particv.lariy the isociety of Maurois. I', was one thing to 'turn one's back -n the high world, but it was und'vninblj ploaiiiant to be treated ones ajgain aa a beautiful woman. Maurois was an ideal companion for n dliy of idleness. The luncb she thought a little too elaborate for a picnic, and she risked hurting hla mllng* by refusing to dr;nk more than one glass of ch.ampajE;rv3. She gathered that 'the second man, so far from being an armci) rucort, was ft domestic servant. Whan he prodaced excellently mad«' coffee, served tn a dainty c o f f f « ciup, Shirley permit- tod herself v» laugh., "Monsiou- Maurois, you asked me to a :pic vie and you are giving me a banqusit." He was quick to catclli the faint Irony of her voice. "Thiit teJl3 me 1 »h»ii'« failed," he said gloomily. "It is the tragedy of my race. It i* ffiveia to us to do many thln^-a better than other at ions can do hern, but the- picnic---" "Oh, come," un rwered Shirley. "I've nvor enjoyed a picnic »o rt»«ch in all my l i f t . Perfect." ."That makes m * nervous. t jjet us hurry away fr»m it while* we both share that illusion." A few minutes later they had resumed thetr jou/noy. "There will be no more speed for ths next thirt · kilometre* or no," said MauTois, "for the rnnd brtcotnes very rougli. Nevertheless, you will have the leisure to observe a Balkan vilUge." Aa he anoke t ey turned the bend and passed tl rouph a village of_twenty or mor.' squat houses, built on a hillside one above the other. Shirley looted for signs of life and Hound non . "Ifa abandoned Isn't It?" she asked. "No. The womc i are all inside --from one of the houses you can see smoke. The Men ure in the hills. This is a C.imiUdji village --bandit;--and I ?a«cy the men are all away on b isinesa." "But--do the a : ithorities know that Why do they let them " "Ah I I was wr ng. They are not so far avraj." Interrupted Maurola. "Look a icad, You are now going to goe an Interesting spectacle--the Comitadji at work." A hundred yard; ahead a number of men on hor: as were galloping from behind a rocky era2, shouting to each ot'ier and spreading. over the road Shirley supposed there must hi ve been twenty or thirty of them. "They see in us i profitable enterprise," Mnurois old her. "Are you afraid?" "I nuppoae I R n a bit," answered Shirley. "1: ut not as much as I ought to be. What will they do to us?" "You are a brav · woman," said Maurois. touching h ?r hand. "They will do nothing to f-.--*s yon will sae." The horsemen betted, massed in the middle of the riad, barring it. Shots were fired in the air, then four men, brumlls ling revolvers, rode forward. As they neared tl e car, MauroU, stood up and a-Ulresssd them roughly in · langui e« which Shirley did not understand. Instantly the men pocketed -h«ir revolvers, and the leader sho it«d to his followers, who prompt y turned about and ·oattared. Tie loader dismounted, came to hii side of the car and addressed Maarois volubly in apologetic tones, Maurois waved him away aiid the car continued. M A little misnnde i-stiandlng. That fellow wan explain; tig that it was unreasonable of m to expect him to recognize my ch inffeur at that distance---especially aa I have only had him such a ah rt time." "They (mow you, then--the bandits?" asked Shirle*. "Scareely," he w swored. "Bnt as 1 think I men ioned, I have many interests in Macedonia," Shirley shrank lack into her corner. For a tn« ment she had felt suddenly aJffa d of MaurtflB. That quick, int litdve fear of Maurois was gone in s second, leaving behind men !y the pleasing tang of adventure. There was adventure in Mauroii as well ^«ts entertainment. Here vas a man who knew » great deal more than he admitted--· rich -nan who used hta money Ui bring bins ppwer over unexpected p rsonn in vnex- pocted places. For two hoars the- ear rmvde sltw arogrees ove» rough readfi, through bleak, forbidding country wiase only chaim ay in its wild- nt-Ra. Maurois, goa iping with idle flaency, stopping the car to show her now -A -battlefield, now a legendary resting place of Saint Paul, kept her interested so that she could feel « pangr oi regret M they ran back through t h e city. "I have enjoyed it Immensely," »nn MUd M they neared Kalem»riu. ·"I can't tell you how grateful 1 am." "Dear lady, today I have lived in the civilization I have abandoned. There are times when Macedonia proves too much for one--even for me. But you have restored my courage. I feel that tonight 1 shall surpass myself, and it is necessary--for tonight I entertain Madame, Stavros. "She is a brilliant woman?'' suggested Shirley. "By virtue of being thu wife of the Commissioner, I think that Macedonia would agree with you," said Maurois dryly. "It is for me perhaps t. little unfortunate that she once spent three days in Paris and have memorized the names of onr principal squares and place* of public interest. "Could you yourself sustain · eeiiversafc ; on over a period of years on the subject of Central Pa:-k and Grant's Tomb? I do not exaggerate. The wind has but to rustle through the trees of my grdan and It reminds the good lady of the Bois de Boulogne. By the way. is it permitted te enquire whether your business with the Commissioner is settled?" "I have not heard from him," answered Shirley, "but ^1 suppose there has been hardly time." "Time has little meaning in Macedonia," said Maurois. "And I have never known him do anything from his office. You mu*t muet hint socially, I taositate te expose you to hii banalities--to say nothing of those at my house tonight? St will bo tedious, but It will undoubtedly advance youi businees--and poecibly I may selae an opportunity to show you my house, of which I am inordinately proud." "You «r« very kind. Mon#our, but as my husband is away--" "Stavros has a profound »dailr«- tton for the Americ*n*," put in Maurois. "Bat his knowledge of your eoBnn-ymen is limited to theli money making achievements, it would not rtrike him a* eccentric for you tc come without yonr hue- band, Vor myself, 1 b*ve not the arroranea to beg rou to assist me t« enterttin a ceapl» of cumher- Bome vuettta. Oaly the knowledge that i* will undoubtedly facilitate your business with him apologize* to my conscience In Mking you." For an imperceptible gecono Shirley hesitated. There WBS, of course, no real reason why Alan'* absence rhuuld affect her---and hew was A chance t* advance he* work, "Monslttiir Maurois, when you run on |ik» that," she laughed, T»o« mersly convince me that I ·hull thort'Uirhly enjoy myself." The car stopped opposite her house and he helped her out "I may send my limousine f«r yon?" he asked. "Wo din* at eight" Shirley, looking forward to the evening bofore h«r, lingered over the task of choosing a dinner- frock. Sh« had left New York pre- warcd for any emergency and had brought many of her clothes with her. She had stored them In the spacious wardrobe of two unused rooms. It wa« a matter that ratfurmdl eome thought. Her host had mentioned only Stavros and his wile ai guesta. She did not know the standard of dress adopted by f.he ·wife of a Macedonian official cuui in the end compromuxtd with a simple gown of black silk that she nad originally chosen for dining more or less en famflie witfe Bogejr and Alan in Vermont, \ "It's rather fun -- dressing again I* 1 she told hersellf, but beyond this made no admission t* herself tht.t she waa failing again something of the old thrill at the prospect of "meeting people."
