She said it innocently, looking straight at him, making her eyes clear ;>.nd guileless, a little stupid, she hoped, behind her glasses He turned and looked at her again, too; there was a flicker of the black frown on his fore- bend, bul then it was gone immediately. She thought: I've still got Ihe advantage, and he can'l tell what I'm doing. He said confidently, looking away once m o r e, "Oh, it's all right out there as long as yourc not alone." He said, "Well . . . yes . . " He seemed to think for a second, and then hn said, "We don't have to race. We could swim out to White Island." She said a g a i n, obstinately, "Mother told me not to." It did not hurt her now to mention her mother; !uid she had an instinctive idea that this was the, one thing she could say to him which ho could not get around. It was only Saturday morning now, and 10 days ago her molhey had died in that same, water. Paul said, "It wouldn't be dangerous if we swam together. ,(f you get tired 1 could heln you!" Bul she shook her head. "1 don't Ihink I ought to do that But I will c.ome down and swim around a little -bit, after a while," "All right."

She could rempniber perfectly Ihe expression, on that dark, lean face as lu listened to Mr. Wetherby reading pleasantly on and on. The phrases in the will were complicated, not at nil like the way words w-t>ri> in a newspaper or a book, But she had been able to get the g^n- oral impresison — $5.000 left to Amy, other sums of money hpic and there, the big diamond brnpe- lot to Aunt MUUcent: "And lo my daughter Catherine . . ."

But, of COUISK, his income from the trusteeship will be 'a comfortable one," Kalherino remembered that Paul and Aunt Milliccnt had known one another for a long time, to. They were very good friends. They had been friends before her mother mot Paul. TI fad, il was Aunt Milliccnt who introduced (hem. She had know Paul longer than any of them, long enough to give rise to tho odd, unconscious intimacy between them. She remembered once, years ago, before her mother and Paul wore married, hearing her mother say to a fHend: ". . .Millicenl's been a widow for a long time now. I wonder why she and Paul don't get married. They seem fond of each other." And the t r i e n cl answering, "Well neither of them lias any money . , ." And now (hey still had no money. Paul had his inome, but the money itself wasn't his; and Aunt MilJicnt hadn't been loft anything e.xepl the diamond bra- uJot. A diamond .baeelct was valuable of course. To her, from her little girlSs perspective, it seemed almost incalculably valuable- But she had a shrewd no- lion that to Aunt Milliccnt the biaeelct might look like a good deal less than she had wanted or expected from her sister-in-law's will. But it was Katherine who was rich now, instead of Paul! •— whatever svishcs he might have enteiiained on the subjet. Anyway, he could have known thai all this was going to happen just as it had, Could he have known that her mother would swim out and drown? And the money . , , would it all igo to Paul now if she died? Aunt Millicent was her father's sister, not her mother's; she had nothing to gain. Yes, of course. If she died, Paul would be rich. All the money would be his, and not just an income from Ihe estate. That was why he was trying to kill her. That was what ho hud been doing in her bedroom Ihe WASHINGTON (AP) — Is chief .
