He slammed .the door and I turned the [car and raced back to the high pk'Aa we raced on through the storm Lucy E'nnced frequently a her watch and told me "the time At 9:10 we had 20 miles to go The road crossed railroad tracks and continued parallel to (hem. At last Lucy said, "Twenty-five past "Yes," I said, "No train yet though." J "How much farther?" "Sight miles, I figure " It was a long eight miles, and as we entered the outskirts of the town Lucy told me it was 20 minutes to 10. But her voice had be'late!" ' R ° y ' UlC tra ' n musl I swung off a side street thai looked as if it might lake us to the railroad station. It did. I stopped with a squeaking of brakes, threw the door open, and we ran to the station. *t "Train's late," I said. "We've got time to spare." ' "1 wish we'd known that on the road." She sat down beside me blew out her breath, and stretched out her feet. Her stockings were the knees. "Lucy, you drive a car, don't you?" "Yes, but I don't have a driver's license with me." '.'Neither do I," I sa |d. "You'd *'.er gel going." "Where?" "Back lo Hydclown," I sa id "Drive the car back, and go straight tc the depot. You might gel there before the train." "Not a chance," she said. "Not the way I'm going to drive," "Anyhow, get going." "Yes.Xr," she said. "I'm on my way." She smiled at me, palled my shoulder, and whispered, "Koy yftu're a good man in the pinches " Then sb« was gpn*. I lighted a cigaret and went out to the platform. 1 was loo keyed up to remain sitting in the waiting room, and I found thu shelter of an ell, secure from the wind where I smoked my cigaret and watched t!:e storm and waited for the train. It was, in Ihe end, nearly Wjninules late, and il was just ' " "'clock when I swung past 11 aboard. ^T the third drawing room i! Iried, a woman's voice called 'Who is il?" "Ruth," I cried. -Is that you?" Ruth Warburton opened the door. She was a slim, chic woman with clear gray eyes and a pleasant, rather ma.tcrnal smile. "Roy Mason, what are you doing here?" "You look lerrible," I said "Did you get caught in the storm "I got a little damp, but— "We'll have a docto- waiting in Hydetown," I said. "Ruth, sit down. You got caught in that ;a!e. You've got double pneumonia." Huth look it calmly, saying, -i suppose Iherc's some deep significance in all this?" I told her the story. She listened with a le pucker of her eyebrows, and when I had finished he chuckled and said, "I've done plenty for that man, but thi, is ops." "He's worth it, Rulh," I said. She gave me a look. "You bel ic's worth it." She moved to the mirror. "I'd bcllcr get reaJy. [•irst, off comes the make-up." >he scrounged her cheeks with issue, removed her make-up and ipslick. She lurned for my m- pection. "How's that?" '^Better," I said. _ "I'll Iry a Irace of i pen--, she sai.i, and t watched faint irclcs form under her eyes. She urned again lo me, looking haggard. "Bctu.?" "Good," 1 said. "Got a muffler?" "I have a scarf." "Wrap Ut around your 'throat. When we get off the train (etch She practiced one. "Like that'" "Like that," I said. I my wet shoes and put my feet up against the heal register. They were dry. by the time we reached Hydetown, and by then I had my shoes on again The tram moved slowly into the station. * had a glimpse of soaked yellow shingles and slcamy windows, and then close against the wall of the station I saw the clus- Icrmg umbrellas and raincoat of the reception committee. Among the women was Ginny Perkins, in a transparent, hooded raincoat "Now is your big scene, Ruth " said. "Lean on me " .* • •, J HELPED Ruth Warburton along the passage to the vestibule The train stopped and the porter put down the yellow steps in the ram. The committee drew near, and Ginny Perkins stepped forward and said in a clear, rehearsed voice, "Wcl ome home to Hydetown. Mrs. Warburton." I went down the steps ahead of Ruth, and Glnny's eyes opened wide. —.Vhy, Roy Mason," sh« said. "You jack-in-the-box!" "Get an ambulance," I said "An ambulance?" "Mrs. Warburton has a fever of 104," I said. "It looks like pneumonia. She was caught in the bi» storm last night." I stood on th« bottom step and raised my voice. Ladies, Mrs. Warburton Is extremely ill. I'm afraid we must dispense with the ceremonies" I held out my hands to Ruth and she chose thai moment for a cough that echoed in the rain. It was an achievemcnL A plump, graying woman wearing a slicker and a transparcnl covering over a feathered hat moved forward and called, "Ruth, Vlills. My husband is' h«re Tnd we'll rush you straight lo our house." We had Rulh between us and we went quickly across lo the cindered ground where cars were nosed up to a white Iron railing.
