"Hiya, Jewels?" be «aid. 'Where'i Tommy? "He had to go out of town.™ She hoped Joe wouldn't question her further. Joe knew all about Tommy's occupations and none of them, up to now.

No trace of he missing Jewell had been found anywhere, "They say It's the firat «me in 50 years anything like tt has happened here," said Joe. For a moment Alma sensed that he was actually more concerned with her than with what he wa« aying. It was as though the mere 'act of being with her Ignited some lighly Inflammable spark in him. fhen he closed off the betraying expression in his eyes quickly, deliberately. It waa as If he had slammed the door to some private room, and he hastily reassumed his usual dry, quizzical manner. "There goes my step-mother!" said with an inclination of hta head. "Ill catch a bigger bawling out from her than from the floor manager If I'm late! So long, see you later, Jewels!" • • • TOE opened the sliding door J which led into the main floor o* the .store and Alma caught a fleeting glimpse of old Mrs. Denton in her wheelchair propelling lerself along rapidly in the direction of the appraisal department in which she worked. The elderly woman, for many year* a helpless cripple, turned her sour-rweet smile on her step-son and said something which Alma could not near. Joe replied with his usual un- tailing courtesy but did not stop. The door closed upon the little Incident and Alma turned away wondering, tor the thousandth time, how Joe managed to endure the strange woman whom hi* father'i death had saddled nlm with.
