"1 wonder it we ought to phone Miss Hilary's home unci ask if slse is ill or anything?" he said anxiously. Janice had acted queerly the evening before. She had waited as he had asked, but when he had told her that he had not been able lo gel out of his meeting bin tvould try to gel away early, she had said he niusl not bother. He had not liked the way she said it. 'I did phone." Miss Willows ad- had never happen to . ,_ him. He had always kept his teet on the ground. Even ns a youngster he had known the kind "ilc he wanted. of lie had wanted to be someone important, someone peoul« would (ook up to. And now thnt his life was secure in that very niche of professional and social prominence he had so early set his sighls on. he did not want to acknowledge this thing that had happened to him. He did not want to make a place for it. He knew, of course, that the day would come when he would have to do something about it. He knew that lhat day could not be far distant; It would arrive all too soon. It arrived the day Janice did not come to the office. Janice was seldom late. She was seldom absent.

Added lo this. h» now jnly a nice girl, ami an efficient, invalunble ollice nurse, she was famee—his Janice, who had jolted Him out of his complacency, awakening him to new horizons, sllr- •ing his blood. Jt was unthinkable thai h« should offer anyone as nice as Janice n shoddy back-street romance. Their shored meetings, their love, had never touched any- milted. "Yes?' to curb voice. The doclor did not try the Unpntience in tiis "Mrs. Hilary said lhat she had had a message last night from her daughter, from somewhere upstate." Miss Willows lold )im what she had learned in hor loved her. And aside (rom Elissa, 1C had never loved anynne else. He had asked himself before what had happened lo hla marriage. Now he knew; he and )!Jssa no longer loved each other. The magic had fled. Nothing ex- usual crisp manner. "Miss Hilary said that she would not b* back until loday. Her moth*r said that she had assumed her daughter had gotten back In time to come to the ollice, or that she had sent a similar message lo us. Otherwise she would have let us know.

He was sure she would divorce him. Then he would be free, and he could marry Janice. We had not thought, until this morning when Janice had not ap- pcnred and tie had become so worried, that it would actually lead to this end. lie liad deliberately nvoidrd thinking where it was leading. But now Unit he saw It, it was as clear and as certain to him as his professional goal had been. Eiissa had written that she soon would be on her way home. lie was glad.
