Not that Miss Hilary gave that impression herself. Uui lietly J ant- had sensed it in the undercurrents that ran beneath the smooth routine of Dr. Holbrook's fine olfices. As with tliis incident involving Mrs. Stoval today. It had not been much of a scene. Not enough to whip up such a rumpus. Privately, Beity Jane thought that Mrs. Stoval nail hau a ngnt to speak her mind, btie had nevcr been kept waning so long before. None of Ur.

I doubt, Jan. it even you can get away \.ith that." . . . . .. -Oh :;o?" Janice raised ner daiK cvebrows, then drew them together in a determined line. "Well, . . brook's patients, and nearly all ol them were almost as rich and fai and pompous as Mrs. btoval. were ever Kepi waiting long. They were not the jcind ol patients to ue kept \vaiting. Or dismissed. Would Dr. Holbrook actually do such a thing? To be more explicit v.ould Miss Hilary see to it tna' he did? Betty Jane found hersel returning to inis pulling question again and again. The rest of the day went on as usual, with everything running aj, smoothly as though on oiled oall- bearings. Janice Hilary, as uoi- ty Jane had learned alter sne had ocen there only a few days, was largely responsible ior tms. u was Miss Hilary wi'.o ran thing*: The two secretaries and the appointments they made, the - ings, and the correspondence.
