She was thinking, just now, that Peter had been surprisingly considerate. He should have been. But normally he sulked when anything interrupted ^what he was pleased to call his routine Now he had accepted Ede's departure almost gracefully, even though it meant that he'd more or Jess have to shift lor himsell. Ede (eared that things would be in a mess until she returned and pointed this out to Peter. Bu Peter asserted, cheerfully enough that he could manage. There was naturally, no question of his ac companyirjg her. Aside from th fact that he could be of no help be occupied a prominent place i old Cornelius Frey's Black Book Ede's thoughts swung to th things that might lie ahead. No' that the first shock of the new had worn off, she found hersc not inclined to worry too much It was serious, of course, or eve her brother Jeffrey, nervous an somewhat hysterical, wonldn have wired. But there was a chance that it wasn't terribly serious. When anything went wrong, Jeff Frey was always quite likely to go off the deep end.

As for her younger brother and sler, Myron and Jennifer, Ede carccly gave them a thought. Myon was the dreamy impractical ype, with vague blue eyes and an ndefinile offhand manner. Jef- rcy would certainly hnve found im no help in a crisis. And right-haired litlle Jennifer was nly a kid. Suddenly Ede smiled, she was constantly forgetting that he hadn't been home in three 'ears.

Well, there they were, thought Ede. And Jeffrey had considered it necessary to wire her, who was by way of being the black sheep. But there was no use worrying and planning until she got there and knew the worst, or the best. So she sat in her scat, wondering how her father would receive her.

"Does he," she ash.ed hesitantly, 'know that I'm coming?'* JeR flashed her a quick look, then turned his eyes to the road again, "He asked me to send you that wire." "Oh," said Ede, * little weakly.
