Main Phone 3647 Beside the Laughing Water A Romance by LOUIS ARTHUR CUNNINGHAM *' I«J bi KU JttVKt XXXV ""THEY wanted to wait for Garret Kane, but he would have none of iL "I won't be long," he promised. Anyway, I think we're all so happy tonight—you at your girl's success and I at the end ol my labors—that J won't be upset by a little loss of sleep. I'm so happy to meet old friends! You Lesley—I always think o'f you as that little redhead with the big blue eyes who lifted me out of my chair at the Empire, and you, Gavin—we shall have quite an old-time get-together tonight. I promise you." And he hurried atvay. Peg joined them, rid of the make-up, looking fresh and radiant in a pale blue evening gown. She hugged her mother, kissed Lilith and Gavin and Archer Fenn. "Well, darling, you've done it." Avis did not try to hide the pride she felt. No easy wise-cracking dismissal of Peg's triumph. "I haven't been so proud of you since your picture won the prize in the baby contest. We had to buy so many of them though. Mr. i Kane was very pleased with the show and with you. In fact, he thinks you're wonderful. I gave him a kiss." "Oh, mother!" "I think he's wonderful and had been dreaming of marrying him. Now I find he's married. He's bringing his wife along to our house. And we had better go or there will be no one there to greet them." "It was lovely, Peg." Lilith sat next to her in Gavin's car. while Avis rode home with Archer. "I loved every bit of it." She had watched a good part of it from the back row in the audience with Avis and Gavin $nd Archer Pcnn. "You were riding high on the wave, I could tell from the start, and I didn't have to worry about you. Also, you quite outshone me and avenged . yourself, for what you thought I j did to you when I played the part last week." "I wasn't trying to. You don't really think I was, do you?" "Not really." "I knew I had to—had to go down pretty deep into myself if I wasn't going to falter and slammer and .blow my lines and disgrace the whole school and you and all of us. I did what you told me. I just forgot about everything but Diana and it was the queerest thing—so queer it still frightens me—1 was Diana. Everything I did seemed to be her doing; it was her words I spoke and even her thoughts that came to me." "I know, It's what you call 'living a part' and it's not in the power of many to lose themselves like that." Gavin laughed: "You need a cherry-phosphate with an added dash of syrup." "Who is Mr. Kane's wife?" Peg ignored him. "No one mentioned that he had one. She wasn't at any of the plays." "She just flew down from Montreal tonight!" said Lilith. "I don't know who she is." "Probably one of the witches from Macbeth," contributed Gavin. "There was no plane from Montreal this evening that I know of—she must have in on a broom." • * • "THERE was a good fire burning •*• on the hearth and lights were soft. "I wonder," Gavin said, laking the Scotch that Avis arought him 1 «nd winking at Peg's tall gingerale, "whit the Slasher is going to dish out to us. I dcty any of you to hazard a guess about his wife that will come within leagues of being near the reality. Whit do you «»y, Avis?" 'A blonde, of course. All hard- boiled, cave men fall for blondes: ~x>ok at Samson, look at'Hum- phrey BogiirJ." i 'A redhead, I'd uy, line* DO-I I body asked me." This from Peg. "Tall and willowy and ever so cool and remote, who will look on us as a lot of rude provincials and lift the haughty eyebrow and say, "How divinely quaint." It's always the homeliest men who have the loveliest wives, look at old drizzle-puss Gavin there and Lilith—" "Okay, Diana! That'll be enough from the new luminary of stage and screen. No mere star —a veritable flying saucer. What's your guess, Lilith?" "I'll pass, I think. I know him probably better than you do, Gavin, but frankly I find it hard to picture the wife of his bosom." "And you, Archer?'.' "A lady wrestler," decided Archer. "One who could hold him in a stout half nelson while she took the housekeeping money from his pocket." They were all wrong. The woman was Poppy Ewart • » * HPHE door of the cottage opened from a small porch directly into the living room so that, when Avis opened it in answer to the bell's soft trill, there was nothing at all to slow up Poppy's entrance. She burst upon them full-blown, as darkly, sensuously beautiful as ever, as poised and smiling and assured. She wore her favorite color, a rich velvet, burgundy red, tight-bodiced, with deep neckline, a white fur cape flung over her shoulders, a white flower in the thick blactf upsweep of her hair, capped by a diamond-studded comb. Poppy never simply walfced into » room as ordinary mortals do. For her the grande entree, :he spectacular arrival to the lanfare of trumpets, the crash of cymbals and roll of drums. It was stagy, theatrical, but with her it was eflectiv*. Up to now. Even Poppy was slowed a litile n her sweeping advance by eyes :hat hit her with their chill, unbending hpntllity, by the sudden complete silence that fell upon he Waylahds and the wide-eyed, ncredulou.'i amar.ftmcnt that Lilith martc no eflort to hide.
