F E B R U A R Y 25. 1930. FAGK THIRTBKN, BY ROY VICKERS CHAPTER XL S HE WATOHlfD while the motley crowd loaded themselves into the lorries and heard Alan barking trder« at the jrmior foreman.» waa nothing for her to do 4Dt just watch. Even the need fot her drodgery in the office had passed. Ho had now no need of her at all. They stood together while the lorrea passed them one by one. At the aide of the yard an ordinary tourtiig car containing Alan's bag"I'll give them hiUf an hour's ·tart," hi- said. "I'vf just time for » snack, if you feel like it?" They went to an adjoining cafe and A3 MI gave her a monologue about the convoys. He seemed wholly unconscious of the fact that were parting "By jove'" he exclaimed suddenly. 1 forgot to writ* to Roger about those shares. I'll jast dash Into the office before I go and do it." 3h« went to tbe depot and waited for him. ''All correct!" he said when he Joined her. "I've posted »t Now I'd better trundle along and see wh»t sort of trouble that convoy has got into." Ha nodded to the driver, wbo started up the pnsjine. "Well -- good-hye, Shirley. Thanks awfally for all you've done at the offke -- rt saved m« no end of trouble but I'm £*fraid you overdid it :t bit. Look after yourself. I sfcall probably havo to come down in a month or so and if you're stall bore we can meet." "Good-bye, Alan -- good luck!" aha said in answer, and turned away as the car utarted. She went bttck to the house in Kalamaria and knew that it had b«come a house of desolation. She was tired, achine 3n every limb. She went upstairs to her room and on the landing met the housekeeper, who asked if she wanted anything. Shirley tried to answer her, but no words came. She waved the woman away, then, slamming her door and locking it, flung herself on tha bed and, for the first time in her adult life burst into a position of weeping. Sh rley could find no reason for iitaying on in the country, that her ·'onscience could accept. In the weeks that followed, the loneliest period of her life, she mad« for hersplf one excusp ?fter »jioth»r There waa the excuse that she wanted to SPP whether Alan could carry through hn plan of making the railway-- and there was the excuse that he m ght fall ill at any time and need h( r. PrecineJy how he would need her in a city that knew no lack of doctors or nurses, she did not mak! clear to herself. Two days afte' he had gone, she wrote him a bright, chatty letter, then_ found there was no means of posting it unless she went to the depot and arranged for one of the drivers of the torries to take it. She vut oflf doin^f this for a couple of daja, then, having done it, waat- *d a fortnight f wr his reply. And when it came it was not, strictly, a reply at all "Thanks for roar note," ran a pencilled acrawl. "We've made a rather slfw start -- they're a difficult crowd to hustlb -- but I put them »n piece-work pay nt the end of the week and it's working won- d«rftilly. It in getting very hot and we shall soon have to knock off midday wcrk. Hope yon are flourishing. A " It wa» that unsatisfying note which made hor suspect that she waa not rtayinf? on in the country merely t follow the fortunes of Macedonian Development*. She conoid have wti-ted indefinitely for n«w* about how the gang was working. "Hie^e might be new^ of another kind that she could not wait for -- bet SKirley was not · -lined to analysing her own tions. The loneliness was not liteial-- and that mads it the hardi * to endure. Thorc were plenty of invitations from the bureauera y of the city, but such society hae lost its savor. Mauroia was an oasis in a desert of formal convers. tion. Bj' demanding her attentio i he brought her a certain temp rary reSief from hor melancholy. He *k«pt her self-respect alive l y his p rpetxial reminder of her wr manhood. Sha met him almost daih but never 'oy invitation on eithei aide She would rnt-et him at the I oues of the officials -- and thrre wpri» chance meetings when shf was shopping or taking such 1'mited exercise as the town permitted True, there was n certain r stew atic regularity about the r hance meetings, but she foiled t" notice this His manner in these days- suggested a scrupulous con cious- ness of Alan's absence- About him there waa no hint of tb* pursuer. He was almost ngidly conventional but at the sami time broad and companionable-. He told her a good deal about mosquitoes and malaria--U let ii.-r that it was time to buy m»sqtmo nets, helped her choose them at an Orosdi Mpak's and gave he much sensible advice as to the fi: mg of them. She began to f ori et her suspicions of him and she was particularly anxious to show her graiiudo for the help ho 1 ad undoubtedly given. · * * By the middle of April -he Had written four times to Alan and re- ceivad only one brief note like the first from him. She derided to writ* no more and wondered anxiously if he were all right, for the summer was now beginning. Already in the city it waa as hot as a New York Auguct. One evening, when she nad Just finished dining in the nrden to escape from the heat of U 9 house, Stavros was announced. "Ask Monsieur Stavros to come into the garden--and brwig coffee for t~wo, she ordered th 4 hocise- keeper-cum-parlormaid ? But Stavros would not ake coffee. He wus, it appeared too agitated. "Madamoy I am agitatedt" he greeted her. "It is my espoeial misery that 1 lack the wwcr to break bad news in a fttt ng manner " Shirley quickened "Has anything happoir 1 to--my husband T" she demanded "To Mr Brennaway? Indeed, no, to the best of my information," said SUivros For a moment Shirley -loaed her eye*. Tho Commiseionei wai babbling but she waa not listening. TheTB could be no other bad news Nevertheless there was bad news. " . . and, of course, you must understand that there F »s opposition at Athens from the beginning 1 which I set myself to overcome. Aa you are awire, I w s successful, but honesty compels me to admit that I was assisted b · our good friend, Monsienr Maur is, ·whoe standing with the Gov rnmont it would be Impossible to «xaggantt^. "I have written--how many dispatches In the last for night?--it must be a dozen--to p int out the urgency, for the safety f Monsieur Brennaway and his wt rkora, that the troops should remai L But the Government will not it'mit the eoc- istene* of Jie comitedji. They laugh at my plea of u;gent necessity and they are foreng me to a position in which I mu t recall the troops " "This ia terrible, Mo vsieur Stavros!" said Shirley in -Uarm. "It will mean that the wo k will have to be stopped." "It is even worse that, Madame, because I have nade representations to Monsi 'Ur Brennaway mo-».also and he refuses to leave tho hinterland. He is a man of courage and immcnBe difficulty, your husband. I arn toM that he re- ceivrd my emissary with a certain ncorn and my emissary reports that he has intimidated the officer in command of the troops " "1 don't thmk Mr. Brennaway would ever abandon work he had once started!" said Hhirley wretchedly "That is precisely what I have feared --and that is why I have come to you, Madame," said Stavros. "When the military have been withdrawn and the comitadji arrive, he will treat them, I do not doubt, as ho has treated my emissary. Ho* should an Arnerir-an understand the comitadji? And, believe me, Madame, the cotnitadji will not understand an American." For a time Shirley was silent. "Monsieur Stavros, I feel sure that you want to help me. Can we do nothing?" "There is a stona that my difjft- dftnj,e has restrained me from turning," said Stavros. "I refer to Monaieur Maurois. If ho would join me in representing to the Government that tne danger i« real and that it would make a bad impression upon the American Government if an American should b« killed by war comitadji -- it would be a himple mectei. But I hesitate to approach Montueur Maurois lest my friendship fcr Madame and her husband--- -- " there camo the inevitable bow -- "should aftem to play too large a part in the c«»- sidcration of my duty." "Then I will see Monsieur M»ti- rois myself," ihe wid quickly, "If it is really only a matter of (petting him to confirm yranr statement -- he has been so kind already that - " "Madame has roiced my inmost thoughts," said fitavro*. He rose to go, than addfd: "Did I mention that it is a matter of th* utmost urgency? I shall be compelled to dispatch »° order for withdrawal at n^dnignt -- unless m tho meantime Monsieur Maurois can assure me of his backing." "I will go at once," said SKirley, "But I haven't goS the car here." "My car is at the door. It would be an htnor if Madame would accept th« loan of :t" Shirley protested but allowed herself to be ovtmiled. Stavros had put the cas« very clearly to her -- he had put it to her that unless Maurois* help wer« obtained at one*, Alan would in all probability be killed by Uw comttadju In her brain WM no other thought fian that o/ getting to Monsieur Msoroia as quickly an possible.

"For the last hour I have Been trying to read bnt my thoughts were concentrated upon you. And now you have come. He had nvver spoken to her in quite that before and Shirley inwardly sprang on guard. "How charmingly yon excuse an interruption, Monaienr Maurois f" "My servants should have taken your cloak," wiid Mauroia, "Permit me!" "Oh, but I can stay only a very few mtnutee," protested Shirley. "Then, for tbo*e few mhtata*, at least give me the illusion that you will stay longer," said Manrois. HJS bands vsrere on her cloak Realizing tk.s, Shirley let him take it.
