"I adc a lot of money, in my day. tching cliche? like that." Bill said nothing. This gimlet- she was putting on an act for the . elder Coulters After the meal, j Bill got Dcv aside. "How's for golf this afternoon?" he asked. "We've got to talk some more." The laughter was gone from her face now, "No golf, Bill," she said decisively. "And no more talk. It would tell me nothing I don't already know. If you're trying to say something like 'we can't leave it this way'—I think we can." Her hand touched him, and she gave it a warm Hltle squeeze. "I've some things to do. No hard feelings. Bill. I haven't any." She left him then, abruptly, if she could nol trust herself to say more. Bill shook his head rather sadly, and wandered om to the verandah. Lloyd WUliston lolled in a glider, half asleep. "Not flying today?" Bill asked. Lloyd yawned. "Later, maybe They had to do a repair job or the plane this morning,** Bil moved on. Mrs, Fasker was sitting under a tree knitting steadily, like a benign Madame Defarge. She gave Bil her shrewd appraising look. "Well young Jarvis, how you doing?" For al Least once today, Bil thought, he might be honest. "Not loo darn well," he said iforcing a grin. She nodded. "I'm not surpriset :This set-up had all the necessar -ingredients. You aren't the firs • man to think he was crazy abox ione girl, and then find himse •overboard for another." He pracli rally jumped. O 'course, lh, she'd guessed, O figured odds out of what, he pr sumed, was a vast experience c people. "So you think that's me? temporized. Mrs. Fasker snorted. "Think ed oldster seemed to know all lout him, without any assistance om him. Well. B)!Y," Mrs. Fasker reached , patted his arm, "you haven't anyhow Don't do it. Bill! Beat ourself up. [ mean. It" —a queer ndcrcurrent crept into her lone— t isn't you who should." "1 don't under stand," he said Lankly. 'You don't need to. Just take ny word for it. This'll all' come in the wash. Overworked ex- ressicn, lhal il is." The irrelevant finish annoyed Jill slightly. But he had discov- red that Mrs. Fasker habitually uxtaposed irrelevance and pcrti- lence. "I wish you'd—cr, carry this a lit further," he said. She inclined the much-coifTured lead negatively. "Belter not Just now. Why don't you go out on the ;olf course, young Bill?

It was short, catching the lip of a trap guarding the green. Bil went after it, pulling out a nib lick. He walked into the san< and swung. The ball, together with sand cloud- Head level with th green Bill saw it stop, four fee from the pin. "Good out," said a voice, ap provingly. It was Mike Turner, the pro idling by the green, tmokmf a pipe. "Just lucky." Bill emerged from HIP (rap. "Nope Nice shot Bui the last person 1 saw in there today made a better one." "So?" M Yeah. Near holed out. A woman too. That Sands girl." "Oh!" Bill rljpped it consciously. But. as consciously, he felt a sudden thrill, al the mere mention of the name. "Yeah." Mike knocked dottle from his pipe. "And I'm »orry she's going, all right. Besl golfer we've had here all summer "' It took an effort, but Bill coo- trolled himself. "Did you say . . going?" "Uh-huh. Leaving tomorrow, she tedls me," OILL waited for no more. He •*-* threw his bag In the clubhouse and started for the Inn. So that what Hildy had meant? She —Oh. sure! Ele was a dope not :we understood her last night. ilSy. being Hildy. would do Just lis. Clear out clear the air. But she mustn't go. It wouldn't o any good. And right there Bill nrvis knew, once and for all. Hilda Sands could have gone to ic ends of the earth but failed. ignally, to take herself out of his mind. He steamed around a bend in he path—and nearly collided with Joe Coulter. Coulter appeared to have been lurrying along, head down. Now he head jerked up, showing • ined agitated face. "Oh! Bill, I've icen hunting you all over. Se« icre! .Did Bev say anything to you?" T-to me?" Bill blinked. "About what?" Coulter's shoulder* sagged. **1 can see sr& didn't. Nor to us either.
