And by-and-by the lovcl and the cultured people of Tollivc decided that the Hallecks rate the brushofl, I'm' sorry to sa that, when I was a kid, my folk didn't want me to play with Brer and Bill." "Well," Alice's forehead puck ered, "maybe .Jordan wasn't s good. But why pick on Brent?' "Search me. Sins or the fathers, I guess. Cut Jordan had a lot of pride, evun if he was a tramp. And Brent takes after him in that respect." His eyes clouded momentarily. "Too much, maybe", for his own good." "But I heard," Alice said cautiously, "thai Brent was treated very well after he came back to Tolliver." "He didn't think so." said Chuck "He thought he was being patron- ed by that gang—Molly's outfit nd he as much as told them to o to Ihe dickens." • • • PICTURE of Brent's face, dark withdrawn, slightly arrogant ose to her mind. Patronage, rea r fancied, was the last thing lha Brent Hallcck would take lightly "Mind if I ask you something ow?" Chuck's eyes were discon erting. "N-no. Of course not." "Okay. Why are you so inter sted in Brent?" lie caught her off guard and i defense she answered quickly 'Naturally. I'm interested. Whe rou live in a man's house—' "You" know what I mean." H spoke as otie interrupting poppy cock. "Now, Chuck," she met his gaz levelly, "don't get any wild idea It's just that Brent seems so—s dissatisfied." Chuck hesitated. "Do you kno why he went to . Providence?" h asked finally. '"Not actually—beyond the fa that he wasn't doing so well here "Well," Chuck began, "he . . No! I. forgot. 1 can't. Because i —well, strictly confidential." Alice let it go at tha But it occurred to her a walked toward the lock'er roo that Chuck Wisncr's green ey naive and grinning though til seemed, saw entirely too much. COM. IHO ir *A sr«ncr. me. T.

I am not all of a twit," Alice said, a little stolidly. Muriel gave her an appraising look. "No, I don't believe you are. Sometimes 1 envy you, Alice. You've got your leet so firmly planted." You envy me? That's ridiculous?" Well, I do. To you, black's black and white's white and there's no annoying mysterious shading in between. You're so delightfully uncomplicated, darling."
