But this time the consequences are to serious that I suppose Tv« just got to help you, whether I believe your promise or not. But right at this moment t can't see where the money is coming from." "You'll have to beller* this promise, Jewels," Tommy said earnestly, "because I mean (o keep it I guess it took a bad scare like « s to get me on the wagon—but ieve it or not, I'm there!" He went into the bathroom to shower and shave and Alma put breakfast on the table absently M she considered what she might best do. She had *60 left in her bank account. Of course this wnergcncy would come up the day after she had paid both the rent »nd the monthly bills! Then, there were her savings. But the savings bank required several days' notice for a withdrawal and Tommy had to have Ihe money before night. She could noi nsk Papa Victor to help her for the old man had only his In- lermittant earnings and a small nest-egs. Besides, be would sus- • cct at once that Tommy had been .ip to something, and would ask too many questions. How on earth was she to get $240? Joe Dcnton? Oh nol She simply couldn't ask Joe Neither could Tommy asH Demon to> thai SMltar—not }ufi when in, Xoounj. .._ wppoMd to bfn received . big salary boost! She stood stock still, a plate at fruit suspended in midair, feeling exactly as if she had run into an impassable wall. Then all at once the little white •adio answered her question. Musically it suggested that she sell her old gold and diamond* to the Mammoth Gold-buying Company. At that moment Tommy stalked into the room, freshly shaved and dressed, and switched off the radio. "Mind?" he asked. "I have ttje world's worst headache." Alma merely shook her tawny head. "Think of any way to raise the dough?" be asked. "Ye». Ill have X her* lor you by 5:30 this evening" He did not ask ber how she intended getting the 'cash and she did not volunteer her solution "God bless you, darling!" he said gravely. "You'll never know wh*t you've saved me from." "Are you going out?" He made wry grimace. "I have to. There's a little unfinished business I must take care of. See-you later, Jewels. You're a great girll" WfHEN he had gone Alma went to th« drawer In which she cepi a shoe-box containing odds and ends of old jewelry—discarded gold sellings, childish ornaments, ugly pieces Inherited from b*r amily, which she had stowed away thinking to remodel them ome day in a leisure hour. She ran them through her rioters now, remembering the hls- ory of some, puzzling over others. There were two heavy gold brace- ets which she had entirely forgotten she owned. But there ws* ne item, well remembered, which ppeared to be missing This was ~ pan ol gola ana moonstone wAicfe tta ted and mad* for Tommy's birthday the first year they were married. Her taste had run to the florid in those d«y«, and the cuff-links had been too targe »od too ornate. Later, she and Tommy had tacitly agreed tfcat the links were suitable only for fancy drets and the gift had found it* way into the old aboe-bo*. But they were missing now. She looked baatfly through Tommy's things, but the links were not to be found and tt was getting late. Alma made up her package without them. At lunch time she would take this package to the Mammoth Gold-buying Company Her expert eye told her that she had enough stuff to obtain the amount she needed. Undoubtedly TrumbuU'i would pay a higher price, but she did not dare take the things to The House, for solvency was imperatively required by Trumbuli',; employee* were liberally paid, and not supposed to »et into financial difficulties—the companies which insured the fabulous stock made sure of thatl Alma tucked the package under her a*m »nd went oe to work. • • • ^THOUGH she was late in re»ch- •"• ing Trumbull's, Old Victor was not at the bench when she arrived. She began to work rapidly hoping <h»t when he came his keen old eyes would not read the strained anxiety in her heart. But when he arrived at last her grandfather was fairly glowing with excitement and happiness. For once he was too deeply absorbed in his own concern to notice anything wrong. •My small beautifull" be cried, Ossing her on both cheeks. "I lave done it! It is approvedl* "Ye», but what, P«p* Victor?" "Surely you cannot have for- jottcn? My latest design, the Gold Star pin!
