After that the girls took over, lurning OUT appetizing, if indigestible, concoctions of the ham- burgcr-trankfurter-onion variety. Bill ate prodigiously, then relaxed with the repleie now-ouieler group around the dying fire. His • head kept nodding; his eyelids dropping. He tried to discipline 'them, and failed- He was conscious of nothing , more urilil something hard dug i into his ribs. The hard thing, , when he sal up blinking, turned I out to be Bev's toe. Lloyd Williston towered at her side. "Well. Rip Van Winkle?" Bev I said. ' j "Wn-whal'd 1 do?" mumbled [BILL "Pass out?" | "You and just about everybody | else. Lloyd and i cleaned up all , this mess practically unassisted jNow I want lo go home." j She spoke -vith her usual gaiety but, -somehow, it sounded a liule forced. And on the ride back she seemed preoccupied. 1 "What's the matter?" BiU osked She shrugged, a queer hall-irrl- j taied movement. "Just tired. I'm j going to btd the minute we gel I Jn." "Me, too," said BilL "1 could use more shut-eye."

In the Inn's descried upper hallway, BQV gave Hill a sleepy good- nighi kiss. Then he went toward his own room. He dad to turn a corner of the corridor He turned it, the itnck miner on the tloor muffling his footsteps, and stopped short— areath catching. The next second he made himseU hurry on. A door to Caro(ine Marr's room on his right had opened. quiekJy. softly. It closed again, hill not quickly enough. And BiU remembered, abruptly and strangely disturbed, Caroline was still on .the dock. LI) Mrs. Fasker appraised Bill three days laier out of shrewd ' sleeJy eyes. "Trouble." Mrs Pasker snui. "I sense trouble. Bill Jarvis. in this woodland paradise." "Now what makes you think so?" But Bill was uncomfortably aware that, if she pinned him down, any denial he might make would ring falsely. "Young man." said Mrs. f-'asker, "it used lo be my business lo observe people and—ah—situations. 1 served up my observations, smothered under tripe and stuff, to the reading public. Well, 1 don't write any more. Bui 1 stiU watch people. And situations don't have to crash on my head belore I recognize them." Hill supposed that he must have been rather obvious He guessed Mrs. Fasker had noticed him mooning :by himscU loo much ol the time lor a guy engaged to an alluring girl who was right under the same roof- And. undoubtedly. Mrs. Fasker was aware of the eternal bridge game on the side i verandah. \ Bev had been involved in that running game almost constantly, playing—it seemed to him—a little feverishly. Indeed, earlier this afternoon, he had filed orotest. Bev 'ad given him an odd look. but answered lightly: "Oh. TO** see enough of me. Go play golf 01 something. w , Bui the light hurried tone had noi allayed his lorcbodings Bev was remote, preoccupied, lately. Mrs. Fasker waggled a venerable head: "Fiut it's no business of mine Run along! 1 want to read. But remember. I'm on your side." Dismissed. Bill wandered off, doggedly pursuing an interrupted thought. He arrived at something that, momentarily, he considered a decision. If he'd done anything to displease Bev. she had a right to tell him so. He started determinedly for (he Inn.

"You might lave something, at that" Mrs. Coulter, when informed, was in unequivocal agreement Bill had his own dinner with the elder Coulters and laler accepted Coulter's invitation for a liqueur in the bar. Coulter was silent • space, staring into his amber-colored Elasa. But finally: "Anything the matter with her. Bill?" "Who, sir?" Bill asked, a little vaguely. "Bev.
