She doubted whether Brent Halleck, with bis strange temperament, would fit into an agency. Still, advertising was a logical place for an artist who couldn't free;lance successfully. Then, suddenly, she recalled 'Molly Tremayne's slory. Brent's father, too. had been forced to' leave Grosvenor Point. And now Brent. | Of course, it did not sound final ,in Brent's case. He was simply taking a jab. But she had a shrevyd idea that there was nothing voluntary about this step. Brent had impressed her. as being devoted to, even jealous of, this particular spot. Moreover, according to Molly, he had paid through the nose for it; ostensibly jto live here. And since he was j married at the time, he must have ,done so with Muriel's approval. j Why then, with Muriel coining (money, couldn't some happier ar- 1 rangement have been worked out? She waited a moment thinking, ] somewhat fancifully, that a pat' tern might be repealing itself. And that, possibly, Grosvenor bedfellow.""

"Spending the week-end talking things over with people from Ihe firm and looking for a place to live. And on Monday"— he chuckled, ruefully—"it's the salt mines." Alice got to her feet. She wns aware ot having spent considerable time on the bench, far more than she hail intended. "Well." she said, "I hope it all works out, Brent. The—the way yon wanl il to." Impulsively she held out her hand. » • • JIJIJENT arose more slowly. He looked at her, a peculiar glow in his eyes, and did not take the hand al once, flut presently his lingers closed over it The next instant he was drawing her gently to him. Alice felt her fiiet move forward as though without her own consent. She shot him a hall- baffled half-frightened glance. "Brent! Please!" But, head crushed against his shoulder, her voice was muffled and indistinct. Brent did not try to kiss her. He held her a moment, tightly. Then, all nt once, she was free, and Brent had stepped back. "I— I'm sorry, Alice. That wasn't in the original script." "It's all right." She put a hand to a head not quite steady. "But I've got to go. Right away." "I know. I—oh, confound it! I've got to say it Why did I have to meet you, Alice — years too late?" "Brent," Alice scooped up her towel and cigarcls, "I don't understand you." But Alice knew, in a wild, dismaying flash, that it was not Brent Halleck whom she failed la understand. "No?" Urent'seyeswere lowered. "Perhaps that's jusV as well. Forget it, Alice. But don't forget about Rick. Please!" PINE, still incredulous and rather breathless, turned to leave — just as Muriel • Mnllcck stepped lightly from the lawn onto the beach. At that moment Alice was grateful for only one thing, the darkness hiding cheeks which had turned suddenly to fire. She halted abruptly, the towel slipping through her fingers. "M-Muricl!" Muriel rnnclc a gurgling sound. Alic*. please! Dou'l look so abysmally guilty. I can't take it." "B-bul . . ." Alice had to stiffen her body. "Oh, Muriel, how long have you been here?" "Not very long." Muriel's liplrt- coloied eyes were shining curiously. "But what docs it matter? You wouldn't be Ihc first atlrac- twe girl Hrenfs kissed on a beach." "But he— he didn't." "Oil? Well, I couldn't really see in the dark, not being Ihat kind of cat. But he must be slipping." Alice got hcrseU together. "Look here, Muriel, I feel perfectly awful about this. And 1 don't know what to say. I don't know what possessed me, either." "Brent did," Muriel's laugh was like a splash of silver. "In a most gentlemanly manner, I thought." "Oh, Nfuriel!" Alice's feeling of guilt was fading away before her intense annoyance at the woman's attitude. "You needn't be so — so darned gay about it!" "How should I be?" The gleaming eyes widened. "Hysterical? Tragic? All righL I'll slip into my IDuse mood." "But it isn't funny. II you knew how dreadful — " (To Be Continued) SPRING PLANTING SEED We have for sa!e planting seed to serve your necils.
