"/ Sell That Stuff" Phone 2089 Office & Bulk Plant - Promised Land Beside the Laughing Water A Romance by LOUIS ARTHUR CUNNINGHAM VIII J ILITH told Archer all about it th;it evening when 1hey wont fr>r a drive in (he little car which, he ?nid, wa. c like n ('dmer of Konxc foreign field forever England. "1 foci as if I were driving a Innk when I set behind the wheel of pome of these American behemoths. How did Ihc day go?" "Lovely. I had my portrait done." "By Karsh?" "By Peg \Vnyland." "Well, well! Did you bring it for me to .sec""' "I did." Archer stopped the car and studied the brave lines of the young girl's .sketch. He whistled softly. " 'Out of the mouths of babe;;—or from the pencils of sucklings. Lilith, the child has made a brave stab at Rotting to the lovely essence of you." "Spare me. Arch. Seriously, though, she thinks she has seen me somewhere before. Do you suppose she could by any chance have come across one of those Ihentncal photos—may be Giles had one." "Could be. You aren't telling those people that you once were almost married lo this Wayland ClKlp?" "No—no, I'm not Archer They soom to fiUach some blame lo me for his c:r;ick-up and—for what reasons 1 don't know—his death I'm noi to blame. 1 ditched him -but 1 hnd my rrnsons-- the best in the world. Vou believe me, Archer?" ,i 5 M 1MJ b, NIA JHVICl. IM __-___«. "You don't need to ask, my child. And I think you're wise to sny nothing. 'Let the dead past bury its dead.' " "If it only will." * * • OEFORE the days turned cool Archer taught her how to paddle his canoe. Soon she could handle the light craft and as she was a good swimmer Archer let her have the canoe to herself whenever she wished. "But don't ever forget," Archer warned her several times, "that the Laughing Water ean have its treacherous spells. And when it gets angry its laughter isn't good to hear. 11 Archer had also warned against going too far from shore. "Wide and deep," intoned Archer in his Indian-chant voice, "is Winna- ma-kee-wis, the great-grandmother of waters, the wise old witch of waters—and she's just waiting for greenhorns like you to venture too far out on her surface. Then she will start to kick up her heels and, man-oh- man, you'll find it's no summer- squall on a pond." She Knew that very soon that day after the sky's sudden darkening, the drive of rain, the swift rise of the wind, the angry lashing of the waves against the little canoe that now seemed so weak and frail as the river began to lash about like an angry monster and show its mighty power. She was far from the shore; she had been paddling towards a great rock" on the far side of the river, called The..Minister's Kace It was only a question ot minutes before the eanoe would be swamped and she would be bucking those wild, rushing waters, feeling their splash and sting on her face, suffocating, drowning in their black and se- crcl depths. .She heard the deep thrurn nf the aquaplane only t lew seconds before the canoe broached-to and turned over, throwing her into the mad maelstrom, blinded and choking. She glimpsed the white craft knifing towards her, sending up a huge cloud of spray and, as it slowed, she fought her way towards it, grasping with frantic fingers at the buoy flung out to v her, pulling herself slowly along the sodden hemp until strong hands seized her under the arms and. liked a gaft'ed fish, she was dragged into the speedboat and lay gasping and spitting water on the cushions. "You must have heard harp- music that time, lady. " Gavin Wayland's thin brown fnce was stern and his eyes angry. "What the idea paddling around in that cockle-shell in a blow like this? Did you think the river was something like the Serpentine or one of those cute duck ponds you people call lakes? Somebody should have told you—" He broke oft suddenly and stared at her, at the clinging slacks and sweater, the sodden red hair that hung mermaid-fashion over her shoulders, "Why you're the new teacher from Edgcmcrc! I thought you were one of the brats. You're just a kid yourself—" "I—I'm not!" Lilith's teeth began to chatter and Gavin (lung a trench-coat around her shoulders. • * • CUE saw the exultation in his face, the joy of conflict in the set of his jaw as the chrome and mahogany craft mode a monkey out of the stormy water. "Look in that seat locker beside you—you'll find some towels. You're awfully pretty—like a wet kitten: and you look 10 years younger than the day I saw you." "My hair isn't snow while then?" "Far from it. J should say it's redder than my niece's. You (now—Peg." "Oh, yes, I know PCR She Is one of my star pupils." "I can't imagine you teaching those young she-bobcats. I don't wonder that you try to add on years and dignity with those glasses and all the rest of it. You don't look much different now from any of your students."
