MU« Jobanoa A LBERT SYMES had just time to shoot a frightened glance at Miss Cora Johnson, before his mother gave him a rigorous •hake. "So. young man! All set to listen in, were you! Well, you march yourself upstairs this minute! And don't come down till I call you. Or you'll get another treatment." Albert stayed not upon the order of his going. He fairly flew from the room. Mn. Symes seated herself at a •mall flat-topped desk. Flowers decorated this too. aster heads floating In a shallow bowl of water. tor a moment she did not apeak, and Mis* Johnson decided to take the initiative. She would explain, but guardedly. There was some chance that Mrs. Syme* did not know everything. "I think,' she began, "that 111 have to tell you exactly what happened. Dunn* reccsa . " She was utterly unprepared for the swift change in Mn. Byrnes' voice. Hitherto It had been, If not friendly, at least distantly polite. But now a brusque domineering not a seemed to •hoot Into It. "Oh, no, dearie, til tell you what happened." Miss Johnson did not like the aound of that particular "dearie." But she said nothing. Mrs. Symet aettled mort comfortably into her choir. "Well," she said, "Mister Albert had himself some hard luck thh morning. He ran smack Into m«, three blocks from the school. Naturally. 1 thought he was,play- Miss Johnson could Imagine It, and that the yanking had been done with no light Band. "His nibc wasn't telling me anything at first," pursued Mrs. Symes. "But I've got a little switch upstairs. He owned up quick enough, after a taste of that. And 1 found out he'd been into your handbag Took naif a dollar, he says. 1 got that"—an embryonic smile appeared upon her sallow face—"out of him. too." MISS JOHNSON was feeling a * shade better. Perhaps Albert had disgorged nothing more than the half dollar. "Oh, well." she said dcprecat- ingly. "it doesn't matter. Albert did very wrong, of course. But I'm sure he wont do It again. Now if you'll let him come back to school with me. we can forget the whole thing." The other shook bar head. "Albert's not going back to school today." "But why not? If you mean that you're going to keep him in, on a beautiful day like this. It certainly lint necessary. From what you tell me. he's been punished enough." The taint tmile clung ta Mn. Symei' face. "I'm not punishing Albert «ny mort. What I'm doing tt taking him to the movies. Hell never know It, but It's kinda like a—a reward. It taut even day that .Albert brings home a llttfc gold mine." Miss Johnson started. 1 — 1 dont understand." She was afraid, however, mat she had begun to understand. And an icy sensation raced down her spin*. Mn. Symei had avldenly had enough of tha cat-and-mouM game. "Okay." she said, "I'll quit fooling around. You're nan because Albert took som* other things, besides that half a buck. Well, I'va got them. They ftll aui at a*t aWV whu< aw aa* li were having our little session." Miss Johnson's last nope went glimmering. She made then • pleading little gesture, with bo"i hands. •'Please. Mrs. Symes!" she breathed. "Oh. please, give ma back my letters." "Now do you really think I'm likelr to do that?" •'But they can't possibly mean anything to you." Miss Johnson heard her own voice rising to a wail. "NoT Unless I'm crazy, they're going ta mean a lot to me." There was now absolutely no doubt as to Mr-. Symcs' Intention. And Miss Johnson was appalled. Thij was far worse than she had imagined 1 it would be. • • • lyjRS. SYMES' piercing eye* 1 " seemed to skewer her. As she spoke, she thumped the desk with a big oroad forefinger, "Because those letten are full of dynamite tor you. They're kinda hot stuff in spots, and very interesting reading matter A lot of people would get quite a kick out ot them Well, sooner or later. 1 get into most house; in this town on account of my work. Believe me. I come in contact with plenty of gossips." "M-Mn. SymesP Miss Johnson's Up* seemed to flap loosely. "You wouldn't be so— so utterly despicable!* "Carefuir Her tormentor's smile faded. "You're in no position to use language. But, no. I wouldn't be so what-did- you-call-itt Unleat, of course, you and I cant get together on tills." "You mean, M'm going to have to PAY you not to say anything?" "Now," said Mrs. Symaa, "it leoki Ilka we're getting some- But this— this It blackmail!" Cora Johnson could scarcely manage the ugly word. •Call It what you like. But tha fact la, you wouldn't want this to to «ll around townT" Mn.
