But. as Luck would have it, she was not able to. Eric could not get out ot his appointment; he tolri Janice that if he could break away early enough, he would get in touch with her and they could see each other tor an hour, perhaps. But Janice told him that perhaps he had outer not try. And as it happened, Ihnt was just as well, because wHen she came oul ot the big office building she [ound Ben Archer waiting at the entrance tor her. She was glad to see Ben. Seeing him, being with him. might slil some of the doubts that were gnaw«i's at her. Ben representec everything that was not complex or mixed-up. He was of the past not the present or the future. And he brought good news. Or what he said he hoped would turn out to be good DCWI. H* &*d no come upstairt to Dr. Holbrook' offices because he had been afrak Mrs. McRae might stiU be there He did not want to give that poor woman any talse hopes. But he houglu her husband and her little irl had been located. "Thanks to :d," Ben added, modestly. "Oh, that's woiidcrlulL" Janice nought it was so nndorful that ier own troubles were banished or the moment. "How did your riend ever llnd them? Where are hey nov.'? What are we going lo lo about It?" "Not so fust," Sen said, taking her arm and starting to walk. * • « l.TE did not have on a hat. and •*•-* the lights, Hist beginning to come on in the wintry dusk, matte a spot oi copper of his sandy head. He looked bigger and broader than usual in his topcoat. "I don't know just how Ed finally ran him down—this McRac guy." Ben told her. not slackening his pace. "He just got in loucl with me and gave me the dope." "You mean Ihe address?" She became a little breathless keeping up with Ben. He was expert, though, at pushing through Ihe liomeward-bound crowds, avoiding tangled traffic. Janice knew from past experience that there was no use in asking him to go slower; he would slow up only tor a briel while, and then, forgetting plunge back into his regular stride Eric was more thoughtful; he always matched his step to hers But Ben pushed through anything anywhere, dragging Janice along with him. Now he was pushing her down the crowded stairway through a maze of undergroun ramps to Grand Central Station without stopping to enlighten he as to their ultimate destination. "I mean the address," Ben final ly answered. "What I hope w'l prove to be the right address. Why thiz guy hac~ to pick such an tn convenien; spot, I don't know Ed's prettj good. I think, lo have run him down. Think he said he found him through a personal at in some paper. Of course. Jan you must realize that it could ie wrong steer. McRae nnd the id may already Imve tnken It on 10 lam by Ihe time we gel there, land right here and I'll ue back." e ordcied, leaving her by a post ,'hlle he went to a lieket window, • • • 'YOU might enlighten me," Janice unit, with just a shade ( i-xnspcrution, when he came ack to grab her by an arm and lai'l moving again. "Are we going :cre—to this address that you and tl think may be the righl one? And what will we do it we nnd lint it Is. or Isn't? And—" "One step at n lime," Ben nd- /iscd. "How can I tell? Certainly, •e're going there. What if it does irn otit to be the wrong hunch? t's worth following, isn't it? The eajon we have to hurry Is thai, is I just explained, 'his guy Mc- iae m;iy get scared, thinking it over. From what Ed said, he ad- •erfised for someone who was villing to take care of a little girl, 'or small pay, in pleasant country iiiiToundings. Hut, as I said, one step at a time. How do 1 know vlmt we'll do until we gel there?" 1 hope you'll get a bright Idea when we do," Janice murmured, illowing him to push their wr,> hrough the crowd waiting lo get on a train nt on^ of Ihe gates. She was not really exasperated or alarmed. She was pleased, and grateful lo Ben and his friend, even it this hunch should turn out wrong. Any hunch was worth following. Eileen McRae would come to the breaking point before long, Janice knew; the point Janice herself had readied such a'short while ago in the res* room. Moreover, she was not alarmed because she knew that Ben would be able to cope will) whatever this hunch might produce. Janice felt better. She hut! actually ;>ul aside her own prbb- lems. Part ol that ache was gone. Common sense was a good steadying rod lo lean on. Thinking first aboul someone else instead of yourself was another. And then, too. it was good to be with Ben, at his side in the old comradely fashion. H just made you feel somehow, so good that it did not matter that they mighl be headed for trouble.
