It . was plain that she was thrusting the past resolutely behind her, that she did not intend lo wear mourning either literally or figuratively. The fact that she was willing to £0 everywhere with Jerry so soon after LeNormand's death surprised me, though I was more embarrassed on Jerry's account than critical of her for it 1 have mentioned the long, free stride with which she walked. Gradually it shortened, and though it lost no grace, her walk became less conspicuously different from other women's. Watching her. one evening, I realized that there was something familiar about her new gestures, and in a moment it came to me that they wore Grace's, flawlessly itniutcd and employed at just the same moments. Even the \vriy .she walked . • . My original feeling that Selena v.;,-: a statue come to life gradually di.-:Fo!vod.

That was the night I got the li'ller from Parsons. Tlu- niL'ht IH. Dblribittd by NEA elevator man handed it to me as we went up, and as soon as I saw the Collcgeville postmark I stuck it in my pocket. I had a sudden, cold feeling that it was going to be something 1 wouldn't like, and the fact that it was a special delivery proved it must be important, * * * . I PUT it on the bureau and wailed till I got into my pi- jamas. Jerry eyed it once or twice, but said nothing. Finally 1 was ready for bed, and there was nothing left to do but open it and read.

Alan I, Pfirsnn.t Chief, County Detectives Jerry had been watching me as I read. When I finished he said. "Somebody die and leave you a million dollars?" "No," I said, trying to sound impersonal. "Must some-thing I have to altend to later in the week." But I lay awake wondering. It hurt to He, to conceal something from Jerry, but worse than that was my conclusion that Parsons must have found some! thing, some clue and wanted to I confront me 'with It. And he -.viinled rne to come alone. 1 "Sav. Bark " hi* vi.itf- ramo u> me through the dark from the other side of the room, "What?" "Selena and 1 are getting married next month. We plan on the 12th," AFTER I'd got Parsons' letter IM as!;ed my employers if I could have leave of absence for the ninth. They gave it without any questions. Then the idea came to me that since I wouldn't have to work on the ninth, the evening of the eighth would be a good time for a party. So I asked Jerry and Selena and Grace if they wanted to go out All three of them liked the idea, and we arranged to meet at the apartment. Grace came, wearing a dull- red dress with swirling skirts and gold sandals. She had her hair done a new way and looked entrancing. As soon as I saw her I knew she'd firmly decided to look like nobody's mother. Jerry came with the cocktails, and told Grace she looked stunning. Then he told her that he and Selena were to be married. Grace shook her head at him. "As a child, Jeremiah, you were the shyest little boy I ever knew. And here you are, positively bursting into matrimony. Are you going to marry her in the ordinary way or come riding up on a big white horse and sweep her into your arms and dash off?" He blushed, "Grace, it's not so bad as that, surely." "No," she said. "I'm really delighted. Selena's the most beautiful person I've ever seen, and you're lucky. And so is she." He laughed and said, "You're J hopeless, Grace." "You must allow an old woman her peculiarities." Then her manner changed, and she stopped smiling. "Have you told your father?" Me nodded. "Yes. I called him up last night." "And what did he- say?" Jerry looked a little uncomfortable. "He raid he'd talk to us both about it when we go out there thi^ weckfml."
