Beside the Laughing Water A Romance by LOUIS ARTHUR CUNNINGHAM mi h HU SUVKI. I.. xxxm TN the city, the Drama Festival had begun, with the arrival of groups from all over the wide Dominion, from Vancouver, Calgary, Winn.peg, Montreal, Halifax, St. John's. Young, hopeful, serious folks with plays ranging from "The Taming of the Shrew" to "Riders to the Sea." Lilith, in town with Avis Wayland about some business for their own production, saw the invading hosts of culture and revised a bit her early condemnation of amateurs and her depreciation of the value of such annual orgies of art. Surely from all this eager-eyed enthusiasm, some real good must come, something of real value to a nation's cultural health. Archer Fenn was there to meet some fellow from home who had brought down a group from a college in Ontario. ,He met them in the lobby of the Admiral Beatty Hotel, looking a bit bewildered, but quite able in his ancient tweed jacket and baggy slacks, to pass for one of the players. He mopped his brow. "Would you believe it possible that 10 many people wanted to act! What I'd like' to see would b« the whole crowd on the stage at onct, playing all their pieces at the same time. And they're all terrified of the adjudicator—as who wouldn't be? Looks like a tough Prussian panzer offlzier. A lot of thespians are going right back to clerking and selling bonds after he's through with them." "Garret Kane," said Lililh, laughing. "Yes, I'd say you had him pretty well typed, Archer. I haven't set eyes on him for seven weary years, but I can't Imagine his having changed much— ageless as the sphinx and as tou^h as the pyramids. I'd know him in n real dark night on the banks of the Styx." "Seem* M it br'd know you too," laid Avia. "I think that's the gentleman you're discussing, right over there between Falstaff—I presume, and Movolio, I should guess. And he's not listening to either of them, but his gimlet eyes—brrl—are fixed on you. There—he's walking out on them very rudely, and heading for us. Do turn on the charm, Lilith. Remember, my only daughter's theatrical future may depend on a word from this executioner." • • • PARRET KANE bore down on VT them. Lilith turned with a smile and outstretched hand to meet him. -I knew itl" h* said with a grin that seemed to crack the stoney-looking visage and gave it at the same time «n odd, Puckish attractiveness. Th« agate hard blue eyes were sparkling and the shaven bullet head shone. "I saw you come into the lobby and in an instant I knew I had seen you before. Forgive me for staring at you so rudely, but I seldom forget i face and yours is still ai lovely ai it was when I saw you as Dian« Line in Crosskeyi at th« Empire in London seven iyears ago. Right?" "Quite right, Mr. Kane. I was Lesley Gray then. Now I am Lilith Graeme—" "How In heaven's sweet name did you stray into this chamber of horrors?" "I'm putting on a play. I teach dramatics it Edgemere School, outside the town. Here are two of my colleagues, Mrs. Wayland and Mr. Fenn." "Wayland - Wayl.nd—" He turned the sharp eye> on Avis, who gave him th« business with her own gorgeous black orbs. "I se«m to recall that name. I'd surely remember ene so utterly beautiful." Avis loved it. "But tell me about your y—" H* turatd Mfin U LU- ith. "So'many confounded plays and I know them all off by except a few they just pulled out of the oven. What's yours? Of course! Crosskeys, eh?" "Yes, I didn't select it though. It was Fate, I guess." "You were the loveliest Diana ever." "And you were the kindest critic ever." "Yes, I began to wonder when I couldn't find any fault with you, if I wasn't getting soft. But time proved I was right." He swung around to Avis. "Wayland! Now I know. There was a Canadian captain of that name— but wasn't he engaged to you. Miss Graeme?" "Yes. Giles was his name. He used to be married to Avis here before I met him." "1 know the picture now. Didn't darling Poppy have her finger in the pie or her pointed stiletto in someone's heart? Well, well, it seems like old times. . I must dash now. See you at the slaughters, my dears—and Mr. Fenn." • •• • /CROSSKEYS was the last play ^ to be judged, it having been so arranged to give Peg a chance to recover her mishap, but Lilith, as the festival dragged along for days, rather wished they had got it on a bit sooner. Peg, Avis said, worried so much about how it was going to come off, that she was retarding her recovery rather than letting time speed it. She had seen Garret Kane and listened to his comments on some of ' (he other plays—comments which didn't encourage her a great deal about the chances for her own success. Kane, however, seemed to have mellowed a bit with the years, or perhaps the banquets they gave him, worked some chemistry in him and only once or twice did he really cut loose and blast some poor players off the boards. The night of the play though, Peg was her old, insousclant self once more, having fretted to the point where there simply wasn't another worry or fear in her. And Peg was good that night She didn't seem to be acting. <T« The U. S. Military Academy at West Point was established March 16, 1802, and opened the following July 4.
