I thought his eyes were • trifle too sure of them- Mlves, even arrogant. He seemed not to notice me as he climbed on a barstooL "The usual, Mr. Dominlco?" the bartender asked. I looked over Dominico. He was lighting an expensive Mexican cigar, which did not help his appearance but probably gave him the prosperous look he wanted. Hi» eiothei wer« expensive, but lomething about their cut was so far wrong as to be on the farcical side. He looked around as if for an audience and apparently failed to find a worthy one in me. As the bartender served him he laid: | "Got a big deal on. Two diamond salesmen here to sell me. This time I *>uy 20,000 carats." ! So there was competition (or Phajo}. I wondered if he knew that there was another diamond salesman in Copper City. I wondered if Dominico had ever meant to buy Phajol's stock at all. Perhaps he had brought him to Copper City only for the effect he would have on the other salesman, who no doubt represented a reputable company. "Heard you bought some other diamonds," said the bartender. "Heard you bought some really 3ne stuff." Dominico nodded. "Sure, I buy four carat blue-white from Brazil. Finest stone in Southwest. Make mgagement ring for Teresa." "I'll say!" uid the bartender •When's the wedding?" "Next month. What you think, >M man like me marry Teresa?" The bartender grinned. "Mr. Dominico. a mun's just as old as he feels." Dominico laughed loudly as if he felt very young. "Teresa b« here in a minute. She meet [riend upstairs. Belter make dry martini (or Teresa. Make another for her friend." The bartender did as directed Half a minute?later 1 heard feminine voices, and almost at once two girls walked into the taproom One was Pat Phajol. The other was a girl who would have been as good-looking as Pat if she had not showed traces of a tendency to plumpness that would eventually run wild. "Ah, Teresa!" said Dominico in raptures, "you have a drink waiting! And your friend, Miss PJiajol —she has a drink waiting tool Mike thinks of everything!" I like that! I never told you I would meel you! That was all your idea. We nave nothing to talk about!" "Oh, «•« haven't? We've got Jott to talk aboul! We've got our whola lives to talk about!" Mike Dominico was looking very stern. He was down off his bar- smiled a phony smile to Dominico and came forward and tweaked his check in a gesture that was a palpable burlesque. Dotninico seemed charmed. Evidently he had met Pat She ignored me, I was absorbed by the four- carat diamond in the engagement ting on Teresa's second finger. A girl would have to have a lot of nerve to wear a rock like that, but then she would have to have a lot of nerve to marry Mike Dominico. 1 decided that both would probably have a good deal. Mike would pass on before Teresa's plumpness got the belter of her, and Teresa could grow lat on a million dollars. A youth came into the taproom. His face was flushed; he looked as if he were almost blind-drunk. He strode up to Teresa. "So there you are! They told me you had come to the hotel! What's the idea of standing me up, anyway?" Teresa looked tremendously embarrassed. "Lee, you have no right to talk HOW'S YOUR SPEEDOMETER? T« be «r« If, workln, rljht, drive In lo our shop and we'll check it over.

"Yo fossil! "You can't make a looj ot yourself like this, marrying the old goat!" He laughed hia derision as he grasped her hand and held H up so that the huge diamond shon« daz?.lingly.

The youth collapsed like a sack. The bartender cam* around fast. "I'll take care of him, Mr. Domi- nicol" The diamond driller watched with considerable satisfaction aa the bartender half-dragged, hall- carried the youth outside. I finished my beer. It was obvious now that Phajol had got hu chance to sell Dominico through Pat's friendship with Dominico'i fiancee. Obviously Teresa could get the love-sick old man to do anything she wanted, »hort sheer folly. The existence of another diamond talesman in the wings reminded me that ill wai not to be so clear for my client. T left the taproom. The bartender and his charge were not In sight. I assumed chat Lee Norton had been hauled mil to await th« arrival of a cab. I went <>p to Phajol's room and rapped on the door. Phajol called. I identifi myself, and he opened the door.
