HE XI switchboard in Dr. Hol- bfook's offices WHS kept so busy 'J' throughout most of each working day that it was t;u»;ly understood by all employes that no personal calls should come through unless absolutely necessary. There had been several calls I Mrs. MuKae during the past week. Miss Willows had made no clTort to conceal her disapproval, even when Mrs. McRae had explained that was Edna Mae, her little sick. Janice said that Mrs. girl, McRae need not come in until the child was better, but Mrs. McRae said that Edna Mac was not that ill. "If you ask me." Miss Willows said, "it's she who's not well—nol thai child. She's worried hall lo death, arid not over her litllc girl. Didn't you notice how her hands were slinking when she IniiiR up the phone? Her face was white as o sheet of paper, loo." An hour or so had passed before Janice had time lo think further about Mrs. McRae. Then, during what the office called a breathing spell, Janice noted that Eileen McRae had gone out. No one ever left the rlfice without letting Janice know. It WHS a hair-hour before Mrs McRae returned. And then sh< slipped in, her pretty plump face lushed, and she did not oiler nny -xplanntion or excuse. When it vas time for the ofllce to close aiTicc drew Kilcen aside. "1 don'l wan I lo seem like a tusybody," she said, wilh her varm friendly sn.ile, "but I :ouldn't help noticing your going ut this Afternoon. If something's vrong, iclp." Eileen, maybe could 4 -T HAD to meet someone—someone who couldn't come here," Mrs. McRae returned., "There's nothing wrong—nothing you. or inyone, could help." She did look ill. More Hum that, there was a frightened look in hoi eyes. "I wish you would slay home tomorrow," Janice said. "We can gel along." "J can't stay home!** "But if Edna Mae is sick—" Janice did 1 not mean to insist, or to attempt to pry deeper into whatever lay behind that apparent fear in Eileen's eyes, but she was really concerned. She thought, If I had not been so immersed in my own problems lately I would have known something was worrying Eileen. , "She's jusl got a little cold," the look nf fear in Eileen's eyes, -She siiKKtislcd Hint Miss Willows lihone r'ilecn's home nncl inquire iiboul Edna Mae. A1ISS WI1.I.OWS seemed lo con- itl sidrr ll,:,l ,-, root! i t ) Mi Haw- ever she (old Janice n short ^^'hilp later that she had bi-cn unable lo "The superintendent Just snid (here was nobody home n( the Mt-Kaes." Mi.^ \Villo\vs reported lokl him I kni-w very well tl someone had lo be—they'd hardly take the little yirl out in n dri?.- 7-ling cold rnin. Hirl he jusl said, rcnl curl and cross-like, he j*nc he knew what he was uil about—no one WHS homo." "WeM, 1 suppose we'll have In lake his wont fot it," Janice said. But she was far (torn satisfied. Some of the fear that had been in Eileen's eyes the day before seemed lo have entered Janice's heart. The worr onllnm-d to nan her Eileet have isn't returned, keeping "The woman I her in bed. It necessary for me to stay home. I'll be in tomorrow, Janice." There was nothing mote Janice- could say. It seemed odd t "Eileen insisted upon coming in. and that she had said so forcefully that she could nol slay home. H was odder still that Eileen did not appear the following morning. There were Iwo phone calls for her that day, one in the morn' ing, another after the lunch hour. Miss Willows reporlcd this to Jnn- ice. She did not say so, but it was evident that Miss Willows was worried. Janice could not help feeling uneasy. She kept remembering as she walked home. It si ill was raining, n sleady autumn downpour. Llut Janice was piotceled her white raincoat and inn- Jt'ella; she (lid «ol mind walking in (he rain. Her head and her umbrella were bent forward (he slant of Ihe rain so that she almost collided with someone coining toward her as she rounded the corner into her street. She did not know why she was not more surprised lo find it was Kileen McUnc. She tried to hide what she felt \vilh n casual enouph greeting. "Why, Eileen — Sorry if f practically knocked you down." "1 have to talk lo you." the older Kirl sniil. "1 have to talk to someone," She made no pretense now; her eyes were naked in Iheir fear. "Of coin-so." Janice strove to keep her lone and manner natural. "Do you want to come home with me? Or perhaps you'd ralhcr K° somewhere we wouldn't be interrupted. There's a little tearoom around the corner on Third Avenue ....... " "Yes, yes. Let's go there!" It must be even than 1 thought, Jnnit-e derided. Poor Eileen, she looked de.*i>crnte.
