Ben asked alter they had taken their leave of Mrs. McRae and the little girl, who Ilad fallen asleep in her mother's arms. "Surely"—his grin was mocking— "if the doctor has managed this long without you he can struggle along the rest of the day. 1 think we both deserve a day off. I thought we might even celebrate. We .eserve that, too. And 1 haven't seen much of your 'royal highness' lately." There was reproach, as well as persuasion, in his blue eyes. "1 think we deserve a celebration, (oo," Janice agreed. "You name it, Bengy, and we'll do it." "Well," he considered, "first we'll ent. I could do with a good thick steak. Then we'll gel some nice clean fresh air. I could do with that, too, whei. I think of that guy pulling such a dirty low trick on a fine girl like Eileen McRae. We could take us s hansom cab and drive through the Park—" "The steak sounds fine." Janice interrupted, "but I don't know plalntirf. Mildred Inez Bridges.

I'd love lo ride on top of a bus. clear up lo the end of Riverside and Ihen clear down to Washington Square." Not Ihe Park: she had ridden through it in a hansom cab with Eric. She hoped her quick inter- ruptior would no! make Ben wonder. She hoped he would not mind too much the substitution of a bus ride. • • • J1IE did not seem to. He was in high good humor, especially after he had done away with the thick steak. He had insisted that Janice order one, loo, saying she looked "anemic" and a good slcak would be what the doctor would order. Janice had wondered, for'a moment, if he had meant Dr Hoi- brook. Uul Ben did not know that there was anything personal between tier and Eric. It was iusl that supersensitive streak she had developed lately. She told him, with a show p( indignation, that the reason she looked anemic w»s that she was still minus lipstick. She put some on and wanted to know if she did not look much better. Ben shook his head. "You still look all washed out," he said. She wondered if Ben, too. could rend the unhappiness that no amount of lipstick could conceal. But again she decided that that was her sensitive streak; besides, she did not feel quite so miserable sitting here with Bengy. She knew that this came partly from sharing the joy they had given Eileen. But part of it was due to Ben, too. It was 50 restful to be with him. She was not key.ed-up as when she was with Eric. As an example, she really did not mind liow she looked when she was with Ben. or what he said about her appearance. She pretended that she cared. "You're a chivalrous- gent. 1 " she said. "You miuht try being a bit i more nattering." • • « "[S thai the line your doclor friend hands you?" Ben's tone was baiileriiw. but Ills slenrty blue eyes, meeting her ylnnce. wei e not. Janice said she lid not know what he meant "Oh. yes. you do." "If you mean Ur llnlbrook—• .-.-lie (i, cn wished she had not. She [ell her checks growing hoi. "There can't l;c two. ran there?" "Two what?" "Two doctors who are special friends of yours." "1 don't know llml anyone Is." What had sinned this? Ben did think there was something between her and Eric. His steady regard lold her tliat he did. "There can't be two," Hen said, "who make you coior up like a girl younger than Albie. And incidentally. Albie told me that night—the m^nl you stood me up for your doctor friend—thai you were in love with someone." "How swcel ol Albie!" Hut .Tanice was angrier with herself be- KHISC she could feel her cheeks Browing holler. There was no use, however. i:i being ,int;ry with anyone. "Did she tell you with whom?" Then her Imppiticsj that night had given her away. There was no use being untruthful with Den. "1 don't think Albie knew." he said. He had not meant to bring up this subject now. tt would hav« been better, if it had to be brought up, to have wailed mrlij they were on top of Ihe bus. But since it hadn't waited, there seemed no use in pushing it aside. "But 1 rto." "You're a better sleuth than your friend, Ed." She Iried to make her tone mocking lo match the one Ben sometimes used. He seemed to be taking well enough (o the idea that she was in love with someone. "It didn't take much sleuthing.*" Ben had held out against all his doubts and suspicions, hoping he might be .vrong. But .Ian Had made no denial. Her whole lace gave her away.
