She wondered why anyone who could afTord a leisurely life in this charming spot could or should be. ,as Brent apparently v.'as. perpetually discontented and almost truculent. In her opinion, both the Hallecks. Muriel and Srent. were at the top ot the world. Muriel seemed sensible of that .fact and was becomingly grateful .about it She was gay. cheerful, jeven dispositioned. At her writing, (Muriel drove herself relentlessly. ]but she knew how to stop and ! throw the work out of her mind. [She had a calmness, even a serenity that was remarkable in a creative person. After the first week of close contact with' Muriel. Alice had yet to see the woman actively irritable. i Eventually Alice decided that Muriel had been right- Brent was spoiled. With that conclusion, Alice stopped thinking about nim. \ He was a side issue, anyhow. Her ; business here was with Muriel. As the days passed she found it a pleasant business. Alter the feverish operation of an advertising agency, this ordered routine was child's play. She did not even have to take shorthand. To Muriel's own great disgust, she could not dictate satisfactorily. They tried it, exhaustively but fulilcly The words that flowed so easilj' |o Muriel's fingertips balked at getting olf her tongue. "Oh. darn it!" Muriel exclaimed at last. "It's no use. I'm just a wooden Indian Why wasn't 1 bom an Edgar Wallace or an E. Phillips Oppenheim? They made fortunes simply by talking to pretty girls and into dictaphones." "You were born a Jo Palgrave." Alice reminded her. "That puts you in the upper brackets." • • • OUT the situation distressed Alice. She was being hiyhly paid and fell that, under these conditions, she wasn't worth it. Without hypocrisy, she suggested a downward salary revision. Muriel blasted the idea. "Uxik! I engaged you thinking I could work in a certain way. It's not your fault that 1 can't- The salary stands. But"—her quick smile flashed—"you're going to suffer how. my dear." 'A pound of flesh!" Alice laughed. "Definitely, For years I wrote in longhand. 1 really like doing U that way. But it's a bit old- fashioned and lately I've tried to learn to think on the typewriter. I'm not much good al it. though. So-o-o, back to longhand. And you can struggle with my chicken tracks." Muriel's handwriting, however, was reasonably legible. Alice found she could do everything required of her and still have plenty | of leisure. . But the question of what to do wilh this extra time puzzled Alice. But Muriel solved this problem tor her. "1 saw a golf bag in your room," Muriel said one day. "Play much?" Alice's blue eyes lighted. "Every chance I ,-et." "Well," Muriel lapped a pencil against her strong white teeth, 'Neither Brent nor 1 play, bui we belong to the Tolliver club. I'll fix it for you to have a round occasionally." was why, on a certain afternoon. Alice slipped away, Icnving Muriel wrestling with n tricky point in her story. The goll club was a nine-hole affair, and informal. It wa.s descried, too. as far as the tirsi ice was concerned. Alice drove a bal] and split the fairway for 200 yards. But on the second hole her drive landed in the rough near a clump of trees. She (onml the ball after a short search, in a bad lie. She was pulling out a niblick when she heard the oath. A round, whole-souled oath in a deep contralto voice. Alice swung around. A (nil woman in tweeds materialized from the little grove of trees. She picked up a golf bag, hitherto hidden by tall grass, and stamped her foot. Then she saw Alice. Heavens! I thought I was alone/' she exclaimed. Alice controlled a desire to laugh. "Well, 1 just got here." The woman came up. She had chestnut hair streaked with gray and a long bony face. "Wish I'd gotten—here," she pointed at Alice's ball. "I'm lost in the blasted woods. But I won't look for my ball any longer." "I'd be glad to help you." Alic« said. "Thanks. I'm beyond help in this game. Are you playing alone by chance?" Alice replied that she was. The tall woman hesitated. "Well, I'm terrible. Uul why don'l we go on together?" "Certainly," Alice said. (To B« Continupfi) Found Hlnck & inn hound, w. S. Hlppa. Rt. 1. Box «.
