"VVKDNMStlAY, FEBRITARY 26, 1930. THE DAILY; COTJKTBR, CONT ELLSVTLLE, PA. PAGE T WKXTV--ONK. ROY VICKERS CHAPTER XU. IS mood was the wronjj one ~ f ji for her purpose, thought ·*· Shirley. She wanted him In thn friendly, practical mood in which ho had helped her choose the mosquito nets. "I borrowed Monaletir Stnvros* car and must return it as soon as possible," she explained. "He has juat been to my house -- " "One moa ent, I beg:!' 1 interrupted Maurois and rang ft bell, When the Armenian butler appeared he gave an order in Greek which Shirley did not understand, Wht-n the butler had left he- turned to Shirley. "Tha car is already on its way back to Stavros," he explained. "Oh! gasped Shirley. "But -- " "Mj cars are at your service," Interrupted Maurois. Shirley knew a feeling of help- (esanets. She could not very well fan oiit of the room and tell Stavros's chauffour that he must wait. Tho nlreeta were definitely unsafe »t tiuit time of nijrht, But of course Maurois would order hie car as soon as she asked him. Sho sank back on » chair and took a cup of coffee from the tray which was handed to her. "You do not find the room hot?" asked Mauroig. "It is delightfully cool in here." "It is fifty-five iejrre«s," said MauroiB. "Outeide, it is probably seventy. By moving this lever which you see a); my right hand. I could reduce the temperature to twenty degrees in about five miriut;s. I told you once that my house fascinates me. This room is surrounded with a miniature cold-aLornge plant. It was an idea I cams across in India. . . ." Shirley was not listening. She had a very definite suspicion that Maurois knew she had come to a«k a favor and intended to make her a.-ik it in his own time. His manner, too, was very unusual. It wa.i a long, rambling anecdote. about the cold-storage plant, and it wai. not his habit, to tell anecdotes. It must have been an hour, »hn judged, before he gave her an opportunity to speak. When it came shti was quick to seize it. "Monsieur Maurois, I arn in Itreat trouble and I came here to- niffht to know if you would hojp m," she began, then hurriedly gave him the facts of her interview with Stavroa. "Ho says he meat dispatch the order for tha withdrawal of the troopr. at midrjcht tonight -- unless he receives e. meacnge from you that ,rou will confirm his statement to the Government," she finished. "P«or old Stavros!" said Mnu- rois. "He is very easily flustered. Fear is the dominant force in this unhappy country." "1 i-hoaght that as nothing 13 apparently required but just your agree ng with him that there is th« druurer of the comitadji swooping down upon Alan and his workmen -- I thought that as you have been BO extremely kind to us, Monsieur Maurois, you might be willing to write him the letter or what«ver it is he wants," pleaded Shlrk-y. "He made it quite clear that n, word from you would bo . Lnt me see, now, there in no telegraphic communication there," raid Maurois thoughtfully. "It mcanii that he will send a man on a motorcycle -- and the troops ·Will r.mrch at dawn." "Yos, yea, unless you prevent them," cut in Shirley. "Monsieur Maurois, it is extremely difficult to ask a favor from one who has already done BO much -- " "Djar ladv, to me it is the mer- -est trifle -- th writing of ter," said Mai rois, rising. Shirley got no too. "Then you \/ill do it?" shn cried eagerly. lie smiled a. id came toward her. "You know I wiill do it, little one." The endear iient fell upon her like something physical. Sho saw him, as if th -ough a mist, coming across the hearth towards her. Wnnt did ho Mean when he called her "little ore?" Whatever he meant -- he was going to save Alan from thi eormtadjT. Surely nothing else in the world mattered. "It is nearlj ten o'clock and we must move qi ickly," he was soy- ing. "We w 11 go to the other room and tclej hone Stavros and he shall have hi;, letter from me in the morning." "You are so kind, Monsieur Maurois," she ?aid firmly. "I don't know how to thank you. "Will you tl sunk me for grasping my happiness"" he countered. "I 3 let-f-said ,-iharply, and instantly he ro- leaflet! her. ·'T-sn thousand pardons!" exclaimed Maurois. "It it; a mietaku to which, my sex is unfortunately prom ." "I blame myself," cut in Shirley. "T--" "I beg you will not do that," interrupted "Maurois. "Let'us agree that wo have--each--miscalculated. Each of us wanted something. I wanted u little romance; you wanted to protect--your investments. Each,of us is disappointed. An exchange of condolences, Madame," Shirley did not miss the subtle insuk in the allusion to her "investments," Maurois had neen that Alan did not love her and had concluded that she could have no feeling for Alan. It did not matter. Maurois was a huckster who had tried to buy her. It only remained to forget him. She bow;d, then picked up her cloak. Ho turned his back and "You are making an absurd mist ike, Monsieur Maurois," she said, ihai ply. have waited ill my life for this moment when you wouki come to me and ask tne something: that I could give." He was clt. sa to her no-w, ftic- ing her, whili her eyes were turned fro in him t wards the door. She felt hia hands ouch her waint while something in her brain shouted that Alun wi lid be killed by tho comitadji UTS leas Maurois telephoned at one ·. ... The hands were drawing 1 her closer--they had crept to her should-TS. "This libtle thinu that you ask is yours and all that I have ia yours --my house, i ty fortune. . . ." (That, of i ourse, was the way to save Alan. Alan had no us;; for her. Mauroi; was ashing for a very little pp.rt of her--the part that Roger hn-1 asked and tired of so soon. Ar:j for that Maurc-is would give he Alan's safety.) "You arc shy--and I ndoro shyness. Must I raise your chin? . . . Come, littlo j.rincesa. . . . Show me your mouth," Time had no meaning. In fractions of a s-eccnd she lived through hours of thot ?ht. She visualized Alan facing he romitadji, fight-Ing, bjoeding, falling:, dyinp witfi doad around him--and Alan rich and influentirl, ransomed by Maurois' kisses. "You arc making an absurd mistake, Moroieur Maurois," she · rang the bell, then gave an order to the butler. "(Joad-by«, Monsieur Mauroia." "My limouaine wV,l be nt the door in a minuta o^ *«. Good-bye, Madame." Maurois swung tfcr panel doors and left her alone in the drawing-room. A couple of msnutoa later the bntler returned and ahe fol- lowrct him to the limousine. "1 mufft go to Alan," she told herwtlf as eho sank back in the can? Ifi spite of her utmost haate, it wws midday before Shirley could leav-3 the city. TQie news of the withdrawal of the troops had apparently spread itself to the few f i r m s in tha Gity that had cars fo,r hire. It took her a couple of hoiirs to find that no one was willing to drive her into the interior. In the end she WHS compelled to buy a car «tnd drive it herself. She had obtained directions anrf an ordinance map from the depot, and set out on her journey in th« heat of the day. The road wa.i good for the first twenty mitos and she covered it in a littlo more than an hour. Then she had to re- ducf speed to ten miles an hour. "If this lasts, it means another four hours 'of it," ahe told herself. "And then it's pure chanco whether I find Alan." (To B» Continued).
