I read it through quickly. It reprinted my para- fraph from the booh and made malicious sport of our efforts to play down the adventures oC Willis G. (The Great Hippologist) Warburlon at the race tracks. j"Oh, don't let that Great Hip- pologist stuff worry you." John Mills waved a hand. "People are inore broad-minded than they used to be, and for that matter, ftf never made any bones about horse racing hereabouts. When we were boys racing quarter horses was a great sport" -Mr. Mills," I said. "Ill tell you wfcy I'm here- Clyde McDonald is •n th« track of some sort of information discreditable to the Governor and he expects to find it here in Hydetown " "Discreditable?" said John Mills. "All I know about it Is that Melvin Fisher sent McDonald a telegram telling him that If he came to the reception for the Governor in Hydctovrn he'd have imething juicy for his column. 1 He frowned. "That I don't like. Mel Fisher is a pretty'cagey customer. He doesn't go off halfcocked." He shook his head. "And you haven't any Idea?" "No idea at all." He leaned back in his chair and gazed out at th« sieau'y stream of traffic. Thoughtfully, he said, "I don't suppose it i could have anything to do with IHalfie Perkins."

'But what could Mist Perkins lave to do with it?" I'm wondering," he said. "I'm wondering about that myself. Miss Hattie told somebody she wasn't coming to the reception Wednesday. It's all over town that Miss iattie won't bo there." I sat up straighter. "Why not?" He grinned. "I reckon you can ake the blame for that, young fellow. It's that book. She don't ike it" were prickles along my •"• spine, and I swallowed hard; :t seemed that everything cam* back to my book. 'But I barely mentioned her," I said. "Do you hav« a copy of that book?" 'I sure have." He produced it from th« top drawer of his desk and passed H to me. "Page 76,' he said.

To this day he recalls her arrectlonltely aa "Hatchet Haute," and his memories of her and the little red school house warm his thought* of boyhood.

Miss Perkins lived in the sort >t white collage with green blinds nd rambler roses that I might veil have described in the book, hackneyed was my literary , and so trite was the cottage.
