Uved in a small, unpretentious house on the outskirts of the town. Mrs. Symes. a widow was the local dressmaker She was a heavily built big-boned woman. dark-haired and dark-eyed. Sh* bad lusterless skin, something the color of light-yellow dough, but its peculiar shade aerved to enhance the vivid blackness of her eyes. These were of an intense glittering black. They seemed to dart out ot their pale setting like let searchlights. Save for the pallidness of his own complexion. Albert, small and slight, did not look at all like her It was probable that M lavored hit father who. village recollection agreed, had been an 'Insignificant and futile man. Miss Johnson had no more than a nodding acquaintance with Mrs. Symes. She w»s aware ef her as a grim-looking woman who seldom smiltd and who went about the town with t heavy purposeful tread, apparently engrossed In her own affairs. If. previously, the Had thought of Mr* Symei it all, she might have been sympathetic with the dressmaker's aloof and businesslike demeanor A widow left with a child to rear and possibly—from what she had heard of the late Symes— little money, doubtless had a hard time of it. But all that had nothing to do with the present situation. Miss Johnson thought, a.i the went up * small flight of stepi badly in need at paint Paramount was «HI Mmsfty of locating Albert. Aw had oe*n able to think of to his home. If he wasnt there —well, she wouldn't know what to do nent. She couldnt scout the town for him during a noon hour. That, if the culprit had not gone home, the would have to try later, when the afternoon session was over. But right at the moment, she . . . Mist Johnson couldnt even think properly. All she wanted was to find Albert, be alone with him for a little while. Then, if luck were with her. she might avert what seemed to her a catastrophe of the first order. Stabbing distractedly at the Symes' doorbell, it occurred to her that Mrs'. Symes would have to be told of Albert's defection during recess. This, of courae. might get Albert into a peck of trouble. Arid, though Albert deserved to get into trouble. Miss Johnson did not want to be the means of visiting it upon him just now. She saw that the needed to appease Albert, placate and reassure him This, definitely was no time to put herself in his bad graces. CO unless Mrs. Symes already "^ knew, she would pitch some kind of tale, to cover Albert up. She would—well, lie was the only word for it. But. suddenly and • little desperately, Cora Johnson knew that she was prepared to pitch tales unto the limit of her Imagination, and lie herself black in the face. Prom within a heavy step founded. The door opened. 'Oh!" Mrs Symes seemed to loom up darkly. "You, eh. Miss Johnson?" 'Y-yes, Miss Johnson's nerves, taut as banjo strings, affected her voice. "I—I've come to inquire about—about Albert." Mrs. Symes' strange black eyes fixed upon her. "Sol What about Albert?" "W-well." the tip of Miss Jobajoo't tooiut nauMMd MI lips, "ne left school at recess. I thought that, possibly, he might have been taken sick." "Albert was not taken sick." The expression In the black eyes defined itself then. It reflected, Miss Johnson thought, a kind of gloating amusement. A shiver shook her from head to toe. "But he is here—here?" the asked. "He's here." "Well, in that ease," she forced herself to speak unconcernedly, "everything's all right. And perhaps he'd like to walk back to school with me? Of course. I havent the faintest notion of what come over him. But I got worried ..." "Yes," Mrs. Symes interrupted, in the tone of one waving aside babble. "1 guess you did. You'd better come in and we'll have a little talk." • * a MISS JOHNSON still hoped. It appeared that Mrs. Syroes knew something. But did she know all? Miss Johnson stepped into the hallway. At once she became aware of flowers and plants. There were a good many of both in the tiny foyer. 'In here." Mrs. Symes led the way to the living room. Flowers and plants, bowls, vases and jardinieres full of them, abounded in the living room. They gave the place a gay cheerful effect, despite nondescript furnishings and picture- cluttered walls. Apparently Mrs. Symet was a lover of nature. "Now." Mrs. Symes pointed to an overstuffed chair, "you lust sit down and—" Mrs. Symes (topped. A partially suppressed sniffle had sounded. Mrs. Symes darted across the room, moving with remarkable agility on broad, heavy feet. From behind one of the »ir of fa,ded portlert hanging between the living room and dining room, she fished Albert. Albert 'bore unmistakable signi of having recently suffered.
