Mm, Symrm d^miind* blfirkmoll, ««ii«r(lnK that the let- tern vrere "fall at dr«amlt«.** VI POR aU her timidity, Miss Cora Johnson had a certain amoum of spirit. She flashed a little of It now. "I—I could go to the police." Mrs. Symes laughed, harshly and confidently. "Now. dearie that would be the one sure way to have it com* out. It I get arrested, I'll tell my story in court and it'll be in the paper. Besides, 'he police wouldn't get anywhere. Mister Albert knows he'd better do just what I tell him. And if I told him to say he didn't take anything but money, he'd say it. all right—police jr 1 no police. But suppose the police did com* to me! What proof would they find? It would just be your word against mine. And you bet they'd never find anything here. Uh-unh! You'd get nothing by goioR to the police but publicity. The kind you don't want." Miss Johnson was Inclined to agree. She had mentioned the law only in a pitiful effort to scare Mrs. Symes. But this dreadful woman did not scare. And. privately. Miss Johnson admitted that she would rather cut off a hand than appeal to the authorities. "Since you're talking about the cops," Mrs. Symes was watching her closely, "I'll te ll you thi»: You and I will have future dealing!. But they'll be carried out very carefully. Believe mt, I know just what I'm doing." ..P'^v""" IIM1 « doubt of tnit - MlM Johnson wag beaten, and th« knew it. "Mi*. S/BMC *h* uk«d, Uo-l porizingly, "why did. Albert tak my letters?" "Now you've got me. I ask« him, but he just said he sa them and grabbed them. Best can say is, Albert's more curiou than a monkey. Into everything that's Albert. And goodness knows why kids do what they do I sure don't." "But if he's read them?" • • • IViTRS. SYMES waved. "Don 1 worry! I got them before he had time for any reading. I give you my word, Albert doesn"' know a thing. This'U b* strictly between yc and me." It was cold comfort to Miss Johnson. But, at least, the woulc not be made ridiculous by the irresponsible tongue of » child She said, slowly, "Well, there's nothing I can do, apparently, except . . . what you suggest. But 1 haven't much money. Schoolteachers don't make much, you know." "I'm not going to ask much," Mrs. Symes stated. "All at once." "Wh-what do you meant" "All right." An almost-pleasurable glitter came into the transfixing eyei, "We'll get down to brass tacks. Now then, when docs the ghost walk?" "I beg pardon." "Pay day, dearie. When Is it? And how much do you get?" Writhing Inwardly, Mus Johnson told her. H'm. Next Friday'll start it off. eh! Well, suppose you and I ust happen to meet around noon on Saturday, at the corner of Spring and Elm. That'll give you Ime to cash your check. You'll hand over my share and then we'll arrange where to meet next time." MlM Johnson sprang up, her ac* livid. "T-This l» to go on? ndcflnitely?" "JV«Ui dMrif, 7»u practically, said you couldn't afford a decent lump sum. So I'm making it easy for you. Just a little something every pay day." Miss Johnson gaped in horror. "I wonder," she managed finally, "if you realize what a cruel, wicked woman you are?" "Go ahead and wonder, dearie. It doesn't worry me. I'll begin worrying the day you don't show up for one of our appointments. Only that day won't come." jyjOMENT/RILY Mrs. Symos 1 face seemed to sharpen, until it looked at shrewd and ferret- ike as Albert's. "Because I've got you taped. You'e 1 rather die than have Mrs. Hart and that flibber- tygibbet Dillon girl know about this. And that's only two. How about the test of the town? Especially thoee shoe factory gents at your boarding house? I know a couple of them and I hear they run you ragged already. You're he 'Duchess,' I understand. Well, what do you think they'd if they found out that the poor old Duchess is so hard up or a man that she tried to get lerself one through a matrimonial bureau? Or a Lonely Hearts lub or something? Take it rom me, d e a r i e, your life wouldn't be worth living after hat." Tears tore Into Miss Johnson's •ye». This wai too much to be borne. And ... Oh, that packet f damning revealing lettera which told, collectively, the whole pitiful little story! What consummate fool she'd been to ave them in her handbag, even nee! But it wai too late for re- riminations. The Job was done. And the sneering sardonic ex- ression on Mrs. Symes' face ave her a foretaste of the hu- illiation to come, should the tale ftr b* common knowledge; Mls« Johnson was not only jeaten; sh« wai crushed. 'How much," sh« asked, In a »rt of wild whisper, "will you •ant— every pay day?" Mrs. Symes told her. PUPPIES Fox Terrien, Cocker Spanlela and English Shepherds.
