Those had been weeks whose monotony Was broken' only by the occasional visits o[ Ihe Bents; ami even (hose visits had become unwelcome, for they only reminded her of Steve' Fowler. Since the night she had met Dr. Kdcn Harris she had recalled him often, remembering his sympathetic munlier, but remembering best of all his gaiety. His telephoned Invitation tonight had been Mkt a ray of sunlight breaking through dull gray sktcs. And HOW lie was being called away on an emergency case. She had calcn many a dinner alone, but none bad seemed more lonely than this one. Fortunately the food was excellent, but witii every bite Judith wished Hint this evening Harris could bavc been spai:»d from a call. She wns just flnis'ning her dessert when a waiter brought a telephone, plugged it into the wall of the booth. "For you, Miss." 11 was Harris. "I'm awfully sorry, Judith. But I'm stuck— and probably until dawn. I'll 'phone you again soon, if I may." "Oil, I'm sorry, Doctor Harris. I'd hoped you might be able to come back." * t » CI.OWLY she replaced the instru- ' incut in its cradle, stared at it malevolently as if somehow it were responsible for the spoiled evening. It was just as she wa inlo Mrs. Jerry Macdonald the young wife of one of.lhc junior executives in the office; when she worked. : "Hel-lo there, Miss Howard!' Judiih extended her hand gaily.

She had ^ nothing of Sieve's "gettini; " a new city contract—but Ihcn, she reminded herself, there was no real reason now that she should have hcnril it. In the days that followed she said nothing lo the Bents about the news intimated by Mrs. Macdonald. Rut through the newspaper she learned that the cily was lulling in a vast new water system north of town, and she eon- el tided that it was in this deal that Steve must have flgurrd. One ot Ihe leading manufactures of his firm was a patented pipe, and for •i long time Steve had been work- ins to get it approved by the cily engineering department. Apparently he had at succeeded. » * * CUE found licrsclf waiting for a M telephone c;ill from Steve, telling her of his good fortune. To whom else would he tell it, it not to her? Then one evening, after Judiih had washed and put away (he few dinner dishes she found necessary for a lone meal, (here was n rap at the door. It wasn't the knock of cither Bob or Virginia, and Judith could think of no one else who would be behind that door but Stephen Fowler. Feeling the blood mount to her temples, she discarded her apron and went into the little hallway, opened the door with n trembling hand. There stood Francis Jarvis, hat and stick in hunt], smiling pleas- JT was then that Judith noticed something she hadn't detected of when he nisi appeared. A faint wonderful thickness in his speech, an odd i „„,.. .n.. gljnt jn hjs da) , k eye ^ (o]d ter that Francis Jarvis had been "I drinking. "Indeed, yes," Jarvis was say- - , , - ing, "you intrigued me very much. I—" He stopped, looked at her. "You know, of course, that I'm not married." Judith laughed pleasantly. "I must confess I didn't know it, Mr. Jarvis. It's something I hadn't thought about." "Of course not," he agreed, But plainly lie was nettled by the remark, lie leaned forward "Look here. You can'l make me believe you came lo my oniec that day just for the purpose of taking responsibility for the accident." Judith's face suddenly paled with anger. "For what other purpose would I come?" anlly! 'Good evening, Miss Howard - -..- , unannounced like this. Mailer of leaving the restaurant that she fact, I tried lo telephone you this afternoon."

For instance,—" 'I'd rather not hear of the- possibilities," Judiih told him, rising from her chair. "I was in your office for the purpose I slated." Jarvis held up a hand. "Oh, it's merely speculation. For in- sfancc, I was thinking that you'll soon be faking your vacation. And that I miyhl possibly arrange to be away lit the same time. Had you thought ot a really exciting vacation—something like Honolulu or Bermuda'.' Or you might consider Alaska or California. Somewhere that—" 'Please get oul," Judith said quietly, her lips c'ry and bloodless. "Please get out of here. Now!" Jarvis only smiled. "Can't we dispense with nil the prolog, Judiih Howard? Let's just pro- lend we've been through all that Let's—" He slopped at the sound of a knock on the door. Clearly Judith snid, "Come in," without the slightest notion of ivho was beyond. To her astonishment, Eden Harris walked into the room. At "Please, lady, let me fell him a fe wfhm^. You'll hi' plenty of lime to talk to him hiler."
