It was now just past the usual closing time, and she was so nervous and exhausted that . she scarcely remembered nanding In Bet tray to Mr Youmans, or getting home- She ached with fatigue but she wa» glad to hove beaten her troubled thoughts for at least a few hours. As she opened the door of the apartment it was obvious that this time Tommy really had gone away. The half-open bureau s, the signs of a hasty pack- were evidence of a tardy departure. She sighed with relief, heated a bowl of soup and when she had drunk it lay down on the living room sofa, the evening paper ta her strong, beautiful hands. The next thing she knew ft was nearly midnight. She was wide awake, electrified by a sudden fear. Had that biggest diamond, the one for the center ornament, been in her lock-tray when she turned It in? She could not. remember having seen it. Yet it must have been there. Nobody could have taken it tor she had been alone at the bench except for Mrs. Denton, who could not have reached the tray without standing — a physical impossibility. Mr. Youmans mnr.t have checked but for one* he rnieht hnve been guilty of an oversight. A cold chill seized her as sht recalled the jokes and bets about the sweepings and remembered that Jbe had worked too fast and under pressure. "I've got to know!" the Mid aloud. Mr. Youmans .would think her mad, calling up at such an hour, but she could ncx endure to wait until morning. She thumbed through the telephone directory feverishly, but there w»s nothing listed under the old man's name. Of course not, she remembered, impatiently flinging the book aside. He lived in the suburb* somewhere—but where, oh whereT Alma could not remember where. « • • TPELL, what good could calling " Joe do anyway? If that none WM under the wooden grille K had already become the property of Higgins & Co. By now the vacuuming would have been done, the carpenters be busy laying the new floor so that the room would be ready for occupancy when the jewelers arrived in the morning. And Alma would have to stand the loss to the client. It would take years to pay off such an debt. But worse, far worse, w»« the disgrace. At Trumbull's careless- nes« was » sin beggaring description. She did not sleep agaia th*t night. Her twin conscience* became active. . "Well," Aunt Pleas»nfs voice reminded her, "yoy let sinful thoughts take the place at hottest workl Serves you right." "Poor little foolish one," Gru' Bijou was being sorry for her. "You have > grand passion for your husband. It U broken up and you pay for R- One always pays for love!" Alma was at the employes' entrance before the night watchman had left The House. She was wait- Ing when Mr. Youmans arrived and opened his st*el cubby hole with maddening deliberation. Her lips were dry with fright M she posed her question. Youman- peered dowa through Us btloai* Then his mild Toice lifted her like drowning woman, a safety. "Yes, It's here all right, yes indeed. Dont apologize, my dear, Jeople often get this sort of fright at floor-time." Alma took her tray with a sort of sober reverence. The clean scene of new lumber wafted out •a her as the day guard unlocked :he work room door. The day settled down to a semblance of normalcy, and when Old Victor came in she was able to tell him of her scare almost as if it had >een amusing. "Ah! But K is not so funny!" observed. "1 know now you felt tor once, when The House was down on Union Square, a big diamond flew out of my oincers and— poophl right out through the open window. There were no fly- screens h) those days. But by the grace of goodness and a nice Irish gendarme, we finally found the stone—under a torshythia bush in the park!" • • • 'T'HE oW man insisted that Alma come put with him for a good lunch. Finding Joe absent from their table was like a reprieve, but hit vacant chair was an eloquent reminder of him. Everyone else, excepting at course Tommy, was In his usual place and this time no secret was made of the excitement everyone was under There had b«n another theft. Alma had never dreamed that White Marie could lose her composure to such an extent. The olds* woman's checks were Bushed, her eyem snapping with Indignation. "This time Mr. Muncie will have to do something more than just sit back and let Justice lag along!" she was exclaiming. "When my department is robbed, H to too muchl Something must be done about my honor—even il there is publicity, the police must be told. They must be told it every newspaper in the country prints the story I" Mr ^ ot Silverware broke In f where were they taken from: Your department, or repairs?"
