Ollie lay there fretful disgruntled, surrounded by all the paraphernalia for coping with a heavy cold. He wanted Elizabeth to remain and talk to him but consideration won out. Under no terms was she to catch his cold and pass it on to his mother. Nor was she to admit Aaron Riggs to the sick room. "I'm tired of that fellow." he explained crossly. "All he does Is harp on our expenses, wants me id cut down on the servants now." "Hut you only have two," Elizabeth protested. Ollie sneezed violently. Thad's ;whad I lol* him — two inside anil IHoskins out. Blag Firs is a big thouse, we need even more." j Hoskins! She had completely (forgotten him. She so seldom saw him around. A red-faced, grizzled inative o( Avondafc who raked the i gravel drive, pruned dead limbs 'from the firs, attended to blown jfuses, leaky faucets and rebellious ifumaccs. He didn't live at Black iFirs but took the short cut through I the woods each morning. j "Have you had Hoskins long?' she asked Ollie. ! "Years. Slow as molasses in win ter btrt dependable." Ollie sniffled and reached for a tissue. "Probably could get someone more ca :pable but haven't the heart to fire , him—he's all alone in the world. ! Elizabeth tuned his radio for him and turned to leave. He put ou his hand. "Miss, would you mine watering the new durian? Hoskin is completely hopeless when comes to house plants. Two quart of tepid water and set the thermo stat at 78 degrees." Elizabeth found the Indian tree followed instructions. She stayw for a while, staring around her the lush tropical growth. No mailer how Aaron Rlgg (might gibe at Ollic's hobbies, th one at least represented great work xpense and Ollie simply couldn't b* the illerl He was too kind-hearted. Take [oskina for inslanc*. la helping le older man Ollie probably re- icmbered that he himself was an rphan. It must seem almost iracle to him that Emily Steinart had selected him and brought up in love and luxury. His ate so easily could have been that ( most parentless children. Like loskins. • • • 2HE went to bed early, tt had been a long, boring day. It was fter midnight when she wa: iroused by the smell of smoke anc he faint tinkle of the downstairs irione. It did not ring again. Sonv me must have awaited th* call or cached the upstairs extension Iliickly. She lay there idly sniffing the imoke. It was growing very strong And then uneasiness began • drift in with the smoke. If was a bad flre, Black Fin was hi danger. Avondale was too sma! have anything but a voluntee fire department She had just hrown on her robe and tiptoed t [he window when there was knock on her door. Lee Hildret stood in the hallway. He surprised. "You're ah-ea<ry op!!~ __ 1 smelted smoke. K't gttttn very strong, Lee." He nodded. "D e van ter jus phoned. There are brush fires or the property near 1 the dam, sma now, but with this wind, they'r risky. He wants Alijtair and over there." He paused awkward ly, then went on. "I was wonder ing if you and Lucia would mak some coffee and bring it out us, sort of wake us up. Enough fo about eight men—Devanter h some of the guys from the lum her camp with him.'

Elizabeth dressed hurriedly but found ucia ahead of her in th* kitchen, vidently the girl .hadn't gone to at all. She wai fuming over being unable to Snd the coffee and hen an* did locate It she had no ea how to mak« enough for eight en. A» usual someone else did le work. They followed th« winding path the dam. The acrid, parching ind met them h«ad on and left Tern gasping. Th* glow ot bum- g brush lighted their way along i« creek. There were at least 0 fires on the opposite side, so enly spaced as to look dclib- rate. All on the property in con- •ntion between the Steinharts and he state of Vermont. When Bill Devanter spotted them e ran across the ridge of the dam. Elizabeth's heart skipped a beat !' she watched his figure sway razily against the glare. When he eached them his voice was hoarse ith smoke and anger. "Somebody set these things! We've found kerosened rags!" "Only a madman would do that n this weather." He eyed her over hit mug of coffee. "Or a very desperate man." Lucia mad*-a face. "Maybe he was so bored with Black Firs as am. Mayb* he wanted excitement. He's probably hiding behind tree now watching you work yourselves to death and enjoying every minute of it!" "Maybe," DM echoed and glared a* her. f UCIA'S words, her tone, jolted Elizabeth. You all work yourselves to death! That was it! She iut down the pot. "I'm going back to Black Firs." "Afraid they'll put you in th* bucket brigade?" Lucia teased. Elizabeth ignored her, turned to Bill. "Wouldn't this b* a smart way to get everyone out ot the house? Mrs. Steinhart and Ollie are alone, both sick and helpless!' She turned. Her sense of urgency was suddenly so compelling that she was afraid to listen to argument. Sh« knew she was right She began to run.
