It glowed there in its niche, a cylinder of perfectly symmetrical polished brass, tapered nt each end to a point. "Ah!" Selena's voice was coolly regretful. "What a pity it isn't perfect." Jerry and Grace were floundering. I thought this was the best chance I was likely to have, and I leapt at it. "If it were perfect," I said to her quickly, "it would not be beautiful." The "thing looked flawlessly symmet- . rical to me, I'll admit, but I had to find out what she would do ^ when attacked. " Selena turned to me with ; something that I thought was ,. real interest ' "Then you think it is bcauti- ~ ful," she said in the tone of * someone making an incontro- •'• vertiblc observation. r. Grace laughed easily, and ' probably sincerely, stood up, and ',' beckoned to me. "Bark and I > will go. flx some drinks." * Once in the pantry, Grace , leaned against the dish cupboard, •stared at me, and said, "How old ^ Is that woman?" " U was something that had not \ oa?urrcd to me before, 1 ran * ovev her Image In my mind. How -old were the Greek glrli In the WUliM M. SIMM III. DbtrtaM fcf HCA frieze of the Parthenon? "Oh," I hazarded a guess, "around 20, I suppose." I could see that I had surprised her. "You don't like her enough to be charitable," she said with grin, "but I should have guessed she was at least 35." I couldn't believe it for a minute, but Grace was shrewd about other women. "You can't be right," I said finally. "There isn't a line on her face." Grace nodded. "No, my lamb. But the eyes. 1 * "What about her eyes?'* "Well," said Grace slowly, "they aren't the eyes of a girl who's just lost her husband in a dreadful sort of— accident. They aren't the eyes of n girl at ali, really." As I tossed the ice cubes into the bucket with what I hoped was an air of indifference, I said, "You still haven't told me how her oyes tell you she is 35." Grace shrugged. "You need to have everything so literal. Look into them the next time. They yre wise eyes, cool and wise." THE rest of the evening passed somehow. I tried to decide whether Selena was os old as Grace thought she was, and couldn't The conversation was jerky and unreal. As for Selena, I had wondered what liquor would do to her. She tasted her highball almost curiously at first, without any expression of either pleasure or distaste. A moment later she set it down on the table and looked at it with a fleeting expression that seemed to me nt the time to have been surprise or wonder, nnd never touched her drink again for the entire evening. Grace was really superb. She asked Selena what she thought or tne new something-or-otner hats. Selena thought a moment. **I don't think," she -said finally, 'that I have noticed them." "But, my dear," said Grac* instantly, "you simply must They're so absolutely right for you. Do *let me Uifte you round to my man. He makes all my hats for me. Designs them individually." Jerry struck in quickly. "Yo« know, I think Grace is right. They'd be stunning on you." Selena looked at him quickly, and there was something in her look that was, if not warm, at least eager. Then she turned to Grace. "That is very kind of you, Mrs. Mallard. I'd like to have you help me, if you would. I am afraid I've not been paying the proper attention to clothes." * * * JERRY colored a little around the collar, and I tried to keep my face impassive. Grace was not apparently affected by it, but what she said next was, I think, designed to draw a little blood. H Of course not," she said sympathetically; "you haven't any reason to. But when you're my age, my dear—" Selena studied her for a moment; I half expected her to ask Gram just what her age was, .and . began metaphorically reaching for my hat. Instead, she smiled, and said, "You must excuse me. I am afraid I am not accustomed—" and then stopped suddenly. II was the first time I had heard her utter an incomplete sentence, and the effect was somehow pleasing. I felt a little less appalled by her than ever before. Grace softened .instantly, and made immediate talk about trifles, and the evening wore along. Before we left, the women arranged lo meel next day, nnd I realized that Selena was as good as made over. Once Grace got started on her, she would never slop till the Job was finished. Jerry, I could sec, wns pleased that the covert purpose of the evening wai ad* vanclng so satisfactorily.
