Then, feverishly anxious to get this initial unpleasantness over with, she started for the rendezvous at Spring and Elm Street*. AJ >he went, she had the feeling of slinking furtively; and that her face, reflecting inner mortification, must be colored a deep maroon. Reason told her that thi» wa> imaginative nonsense. But the sensation of walking with her soul on public view, like i potter, persisted. She found her pace quickening involuntarily when the drew ntar acquaintances.

But she wat afraid that UM nail* had a gutty quality; and that her good-mornings were hasty' and mumbled. On her way the met Andy Crayle. the local police chief. Andy was a man of kindly jest. "Well, well, Miss Johnson!" He shifted the toothpick he> invariably wore and beamed broadly. "Your day off, eh? Go.t the coining generation educated enough 'or this week?" Goodliest, she thought! My day off! Little he knowi. But she gave him the glazed smile. "Why, yes. Mr. Qrayle. At least, I hope so." For tha courage to throw her- se.Ii. figuratively, upon Andy's barrel-like, grar-'hirted chest and pour out her story, she would have given ai arm. But it was no use thinking about that. did not have the courage, \fRS. SYMES wat walking 1T1 slowly up Elm Street, perhaps timing her approach. She wore a black, tailored suit and low-heeled, black shoes. The prevailing blackness wat relieved only by a small yellow flower pinned to her lapel. The creature, Miss Johnson decided, had an inordinate love of flowers. And she did not understand It. An appreciation of anything beautiful seemed completely foreign to Mrt. Symes' nature. But Mix Johnson remembered having read about similar things. Hadn't then been during the last war a fantastic Send in charge of a German concehtt ation camp, who listened to lovely miutc while prisoners were tortured or executed at hit orders? She had heard of gangsters living amidst exquisite surroundings; of cold- blooded murderers with a passion for pett and small animals. Shc\«ipposed that Mrt, Sym« MI into this tame , inexplicable category. •Wall, dearie," lira. Sjrnt* converged like a dark spectre. "You're right on the dot, 1 see. That's good. We want to keep this businesslike." Mist Johnson wat in no mood for conversation. She thrust out a hand, with a stabbing motion. All the way from the bank that hand had clutched a note of a denomination the could ill afford. "H-here It is," she said shamefacedly. "Please take It quickly." Mrt. Symes avoided the hand, her face darkening. "Don't be a tool!" the said sharply. "Do you want anyone to see what we're doing? Just slip It to me, easy, after we've talked a minute." "But there iin't anyone around." "People look out of windows, don't they? You can't be too careful In a town like thit. Now then," Mrt. Symet smiled her rudimentary smile, "lovely day, Isn't it?" Mist Johnson bit her lip. What torture! Wat it part of the procedure that the would have to convene pleasantly with thit monster? But she managed to stammer something. 11 • a nRESENTLY and turroptiuuus- 1 ly, Mrt. Symaa moved closer. The money changed hands. Then Mn. Symet became brusque. "Okay. Next time we'll just happen to meet by that big vacant lot on Cameron Road. Don't tor- Ret! I wouldn't want to have t» —well, embarratt you." "I won't forgat." Miss Johnton sought to push past her. The woman barred the way. "Thera'l another thing. No pick- Ing on Albert In school because of this. Ha Isn't in the deal, you know. If he doet anything ha shouldn't, you just tall ma. I'll tend to him." "U never entered my head t* pick an Albert." Sudden anger emboldened Mitt Johnion. "He't scarcely to blame for what hit mother doaa." That kind of talk wont get you anywhere, dearie. But I'll past it thit time. So long . . till we meat again!" Mn. Symea gave her the next thing to a leer, and patsed on.
