Thanks for helping us out nil you could." My own Idea was that he was putting on an act for Proxy's benefit, but it was all to the good so far as we were concerned. The thing could have been much'more unpleasant, and certainly we were treated with every consideration. Lightheart- cdly we left the room and the building. On the sidewalk in front we paused for a moment to discuss our next move, nncl I felt a hand on my arm. To my surprise it was Prexy. "I know"—Proxy's voice was careful—"how horrible this has been for both of you, Doubtless you both wish to wash your hands of the whole matter, but -.1 am compelled to ask you to assist me in one more way," He paused. "Hy the way, you handled yourselves, in your relations * with the police, like gentlemen and University men." That was, for Prcxy, equivalent to giving , us the accolade. "Thank you," Jerry said. "Of • course, if there is anything more ' wo cnn do, we'll be only too Rlnd. H "Good," said Prexy, He rwtinfl uf ifiht, t'.own Santvoo'.'d Street. , "Last night, and again thU morn- ing, when I talked with Mrs. Lo- Normand"—he paused to give us the picture of a strong man noble in the accomplishment of even the most heartbreaking of duties —"she expressed a strong desire to see you. Naturally, she wishes to thank you (or your courage and intelligence last night.** • * * JERRY told me afterward that LeNormand's living room. Into which we were shown by a red- eycd domestic, had not changed in a single detail from his recollection of it The room was square, with two windows on the street and another on a side yard; you entered it from the central hall through a wide double door- wny. There were two Morris chairs with faded upholstery, a lumpy-looking sofa, several bridge lamps of the sort sold for students' rooms, a mahogany bookcase with glass doors, and on the walls three or four pictures obviously not selected by the University Art Department. On the center table was a litter of magazines and two untidy ash trays. Prexy had said that some people might consider Mrs. LcNor- mnnd the most beautiful woman in the world, and my mind had been busy creating an Image of the woman to whom, had I been Paris, T should hnve nwardcd the golden apple. She did not look anything like the figure I had constructed In my mind. The drat thing I saw about her wns that she was atrociously badly dressed. She had on n dark, rough tweed skirt, .badly cut, so thnt the hem line wn* uneven, Above it WM • neutral-color knitted sweater with unbecoming half- length aleevcs, Kcr su. !;'m;» w«r« Uw wron< tJud* lor th* skirt and her shoes a pair of new Oxfords badly scuffed at the toes. My first sensation was one of relief, Grace and her butterfly philosophy of life had made me leery of beautiful women. Proxy's characterization of Mrs. LeNormand had disturbed me It would be easy to fob oil a few banal .ind sympathetic remarks and make a swift exit. She was just a person, nothing more, * • • AS I looked at her a second time I saw with a rush of astonishment thai I was wholly wrong. It was as impossible to imagine her in modern dress as to think of Uie Winged Victory in tennis shorts. She was tall, almost six feet, and neither slender nor in any place loo full. Her hair, untidily collected at the nape of her neck, was the color of winter sunlight, and her eyes, set wide apart below level eyebrows, were a dark, violet blue. Underneath the incongruity of her clothes was a body perfectly integrated, part with part, so that it had the unity of construction and harmony of relationship that great sculptors have now and again succeeded in capturing. In her body, in her hands with their strong, round fingers, in her fnce, there was strength, beauty, unity. Looking nt her as she came toward us, I wondered what it was, I could see no grief or shock in her expression, and not much of anything else. There seemed to be no life in her. As she walked I half expected she would drag her.feet with each step. Her face was simply vacant. She hardly looked at ux. Her eyes were withdrawn, us If there w<i.i nothing on which It was Wi.;"; their wVile '•) fo;,is. 1 IT» Be Continued) - GUARANTEED "Always A Good E<$ .W.v.v.v.Wi Guaranteed Watch Cleaning 3.50 36 Hour Service Your watch Is completely dii- assembled—all pivots polished —springs adjusted and machine cleaned.
