When she finished. Kalhcrine slipped back her chair quietly, and crept across to Ihe edge of Ihe Irving room arch, careful to keep Paul from knowing thai she had goltcn cp if he were still in the living room. There was a tall wing chn'.r standing on the opposite side of the fireplace with its back to the dining room — one of. the faw upholstered chairs in the roorn-^- and she ran quickly around behind it. -md got down on her knees there, out of sifht. She. knew thai she was nol really bidden, that she could easily 'be seen from out on the terrace through the windows on each side of the fireplace. But she did not think he would come from cither of Uioso directions. He was, himself. in too great a hurry lo get rid ot the paper. He would take the first opoortunity which seemed at all safe, and would certainly not arrive Iherc by any sort.' of devious route. The rough cords of the caruot cut into her skin, and her glasses had a tendency lo Blidc, clown, hnv nose so that rhc had lo grab them lo keep them from falling off. What would she do now if she lost her glasses : ...And then she heard a sound, She held herself very stiff and still to listen. It was a sound she herself had made in the night, a dim sound, not al all close to her, the sound of a doorknob being slowly turned, and the click of the 'bolt slipping back from the clasp.

He pel his hand in his pocket and began unloading Uic contents on Ihe table. He brought out his billfold, Aunt M'iUtcenl picked it up. opened it, and started going through it.

Unt, except grains of n broken match, nothing in the hip po,eket; nothing in the pocket ot his shirt. Aunt Millicent was saying, "I think we've heard enough about thU." It seemed to her that tho, waiting was interminable; and now, changing mood s, she thought abruptly that any shadow of the ridiculous — of a child's game of hide - and - sek — which might have hung about the affair had been brushed roughly away by the reality of the moment. She hoard her watch ticking on her wrist, and she thought: Maybe ho can hear it, to! And at that very instant, as her 'thoughts had wandered briefly, she heard what she had been 1 waiting foi — the ptriking of a match by the fireplace. It took her completely by surprise. She had had no idea that ho could have gotten there yet; he most not have been moving as cautiously as she had imagined. He must have believed himself quite safe, and have been in a hurry to finish his business before she could get in his way again, She jumped up, landing on her feet, and ran ground the chair. Paul held a lighted match hi one hand; in the other was the paper, unfolded, waiting to be touched to the flame. But he had, not touched it .vet. - >.4H|1 I He looked around as he saw her, holding the burning match steadily so that it svould, not go out. As he sow her, he showed his teeth. j She made a quick lunge for the j paper, but he gayp his short Jaiigh j and held it up' over h,is head, out of her reach. She jumped and caught his arm, trying to drag it down, stretching wildly to reach the paper, but it was still too high. (Tp ge Continued) (Cppyrg'ht 1937 py Rinphart £ Qpmpany, In?.)
