And yet the small things might have added up to much more thsn I made of them at the time. 1 ' Jerry was a man in love. He was certain that Selena was the only woman in the world, and looking at her magnificent beauty It was not hard to understand why he thought so. If I had not formed a deep dislike for her, tinged somehow with fear, at that first meeting, I am sure that I should have been In love with Selena myself. Sometimes it stopped my breath to look at her. From the very start it was obvious that she was attracted by Jerry. When I saw them together I could never be sure that jihc loved him, but remembering the change that came into her face when she first saw him, in LcNormand's house in Col- IcKOvillc, .! never doubted his power to affect her deeply In some way that was not, at 'nil clear to mo. I don't believe there \vns s single mintite from the beginning when she did not in- 1 land to marry him. Of course, T am being clearer *od more dellniU) about the rda- Ml. Dnt<*«t*d by HI* tionship between them now than I was at the time. I managed to overlook the actual meaning ot several episodes. The first of them happened a few days after Selena LeNor- mand came to town. As Jerry requested, I had explained the problem to Grace. Grace is an acute person, in her way, and when I talked to her beforehand about the situation and what she was supposed to do, I think she fathomed my feelings, and I know she was prepared for something out of the ordinary. Jerry and I had gone round to the latest decorator's delight in which Grace and Fred were living. The furniture was upholstered in du'l silver-colored cloth, and there was one of those Broncusi streamline'things in an alcove at nnc end of the room, indirectly lighted, so that it gave you the feeling of an evening star. • * • JERRY was surveying the place with a look of amused interest; his eye lit on the Bran- cusi tiling and he smiled briefly, then sat down tentatively at one end of the big sofa. Grace saw his glance. "I do hope you approve, Jeremiah," she said. He nodded at the wall niche. "That thing there is good. I like it." Grace was taken aback. I could sec that she had hoped to be able to tease him with it. Rut she rallied nobly. "I knew you would, my precious." Jerry dismissed H with his highest praise. "It's almost pure mnlhemnMcs," Grace sat down somewhat abruptly nt the other end of the sofn, HI a cignret—mercifully not one of her special, Imported ones •aid.

Grace gave him her quick smile and crossed her legs. "Poor Fred had to go out tonight They're doing something or other at the Brook Club." I saw that she had deliberately got Fred out of the way for the occasion, but she meant him to know it and appreciate the fact. Jerry landed one of his rare quick lefts to the chin. "Thank you," he said. I laughed, and Grace gave ma a little snoot of mock irritation. "She said she was on her way,* Grace went on. Jerry said nervously, "This very good of you." "Nonsense," said Grace. "I'm complimented, my pet, really. Two tributes to my taste, from you, in the same week!" The doorbell rang exactly then, and Grace got up at once to answer it. I got up, uncertainly, and put my hands in my pockets. After a moment Jerry rose too. They came into the room, and as I saw Selena again, the prickle went down my spine. She was a whole head taller than Grace, and she moved down the room toward us with the long, free stride of an Italian hill-village woman. * * * THIS time she was wearing • black evening dress, and the white-silver of her arms and shoulders and throat was unforgettable. But her dress itself was hopeless. For one thing it was cheap, and a little too short for her. Then, more than anything else, It was vulgar. Glittering black sequins which were too large, nnd all wrong anyway. The line front was loo extreme, and nt no place did the thing really (it her. "This is a very interesting room," Selena said. Her tone convoyed to me that she meant the words literally. The room in- terrsted her. "I'm so glad you like it." To my surprise, Selena turned to me and said, "New things art always mi adventure." a* i
