VRIDAT, FEBRUARY 21, 1930, *THTT "DAILY COURIER, CO' JNETLLSVILLE, PA. PAGE BY ROY VICKERS ! CHAPTER XXXVH. S HE took his arm and they passed through swinging doors into a targe hail get with tables, at one end of which was a stage. The proprietor came forward and fonnd them a table near a party of Greek military officers in uniform. Through the haze of smoke, Shirley could dimly see the stagij and on it a fat woman of remarkably scanty attire who ecorned to ba singing, though her volco was totally inaudible abova the load polyglot babble of the patrons. Indeed, such was the din that conversation with Alan was impossible. They were liable, too to nerpetnal interruption from vendors of cigarettes, salted nnts ices, perfumes, oddments of every nature that could conceivably bo bought by persona in a cafe. Shirley, in the long waits between the courses, amused herseU by buying a littie of everything that w»9 offered and passing It in tura to the beggars who were allowed to ply their trade in return for si commission to the proprietor of tt»a cafe. s "Had enough of it?** Aten presently shouted, and, perceiving that he wished to go, she nodded. Oa the way home in their hirec £ar, she was chattering lightly about the cafe. The car was running at comparatively high speed whan suddenly she-felt the brakes being applied. At the same moment, Alan's hand shot ncrons her .face, covering it, Then came the croon. It v/ae not a serious accident. It had bacn a glancing collision with a ear coming from a side street and theirs was by far the heavier car. Ar.tually, their driver did not stop. But the window on Shirley's side hid been chattered. "H«re we can't leave them like that I" cried Alan, looking out of the irindow, and then: "Oh, they'ro not hurt--and it was their fault. We'll let our cold-blooded fellow carry on. Are you any the *-?«rse, Shirley?" "Not a bit. Are you?" "No. Nothing to speak of. I'vo eot some glass in my hand, I think, it's bleeding a bit--I hope it hasn't touched your dress. I'D Juet hold a handkerchief to it until we get home." As soon as they were in the house. Shirley glanced at his hand. "It's bleeding dreadfully 1" she cried. "Come up to my room-there's everything handy there." "It's nothing to worry about," he said sheepishly and followed her into her room. Quickly she prepared antiseptics and w»,ter. "Cone here," she ordered, took his haiirl and removed the handkerchief. She blanched a littJe at the sight of the blood, then stiffened and examined the cut closely. "There are splinters sticking in it," she said. "We'd better liave a doctor," "Oh, no--they'll wash out. Besides, wo don't know any doctor and it would be the dickens of a job finding one at this time of night." ''Then you must keep as still as you can while 1 do it," she said. "It'll probably hurt." "Go ahead. . . . That doesn't hurt very much." "There's a piece I can't coax out --I'll have to work rt out with a ne«ile," she said. It was a ticklish business, workins: the splinter out with a needle, and once he drew his breath through his teeth. "I've got it!" she exclaimed. And t h j n ; "Oh, Alan, this would ·have been In my eyes rf you hadn't put your hand there I 1 * It waa the thought of his saving her sight--inexplicably, it was the wounded paw -- perhaps also the relief at having got the splinter out--that produced sudden emotion U reaction. Before she knew what .vas happening to her, tears hadj'ccme to her eyes and a tear had dropped on his wrist. Instantly he snatched his hand away. She looked up at him glaring down at her, glaring anger. "'Alan I" a i e gasped, "What is the matter? 1 He laughed, "Nothing," he said shortly. "Nothing at all." He put his hand oat gingerly. "Awfully decent of you to ao th-ia. If you could pot a bit of ointirent or something on it, we shall 1 e through." The ointment was easy enough, but patchisu up a bandage waa more difficult. But her flttgem,: though untrained, were deft and eventually shs accomplished it "Thankn tremendously,' 8 - he ·trwy would go to his. More than evsr tho impression grew from th'-se meetings with him that she had attributed more to his words on the night when she was first hie guest f;han he had intended. He was a plcrwant companion, whose conversation had always a spice of danger. His attention was flattering to her self-esteem, confident of her own powers, she soon censed to care whether he knew the truth about her or not. When he gave signs of becoming ovcr-frallant she knew how to »e- dure him to apology. Altogether, she would have missed him if he had not been there--and did not mind his knowing it. In Febi-uary the Winter began to show signs of passing, and Shirley grew desperate. Almost daily .she had seen some official and never allowed a week to pass without bearding Stavros in his office. With a show of being abont to grant what she asked, he referred nor to one arid to another. Bach fresh interview wonld bring hope* *AIanJ" «he gasped. . "Whnt is the matter?" said. "Sorry 1 atertted yoti by pulling my h i n d away. Juart a itub of pain v hen I didn't expect it. Good nigh ," For several ninutps after ho had jone Shirley s ood thinking. "There wasn't any stab of pain," ran her thoughts. "I was a fool to cry--but it WB m't really crying-- "t was just a fc-.jrt of shock. Why --why was he so wngry with me and then ashamed of himself?" His conduct remained a tnys- ;ery, and his :isnner on the fol- owing day supplied no clue. Ho was as genial and friendly a«i ho lad been over night. Fie told her was going tc take an office near docks, whereupon she jjuewsed Jia.t his high t piriUf could be ae~ :ounted for b - the fact that he tad decided to start work. Through the weeks that fol- oweri, lengthening into months, :he phase of friendliness lasted un- irokenly. Maritime Stavros called, and the wi-,;B of other officials. He had gruuib ed a littie at first it having to : ccept their invitations but soot became amiable about it. Maurios they met everywhere.; ric would come to their housa and that -irere never fulfilled. By tfe* middle of February she faced the condjsion that 20 far she had achieved nothing. She h*d forced upon Alan social amenities which he d( tested, and he had made no protect--had made no inquiry as to her progress. Tlii- nerve strain was growing almost unendurable so that sJie was jlad when Alan indirectly rained the irubjecu They w«r* taking coffe« In the drawing-room after dinner. "The weather here is pr«tty regular," he aald after a bnef silenco. "The rains have finished and Ui a Sprint; starts in about threo week*. I'm going to make some sort of beginiiinK- then." I've known of course ithat yen intended to do something," she said alowly. "Are you starting un- countvy?" "Yes," I've done absolutely nothhig, 'I vsa afraid you hadn't," he aiuwo-ed gently. "I'm very norry for your sake because I know you've been keeping pretty hard'at t You've done your boat, Sihlrlay."
