So 1 just lumped in the car and name " "Bui that was perfectly all right" she spoke quickly. "I'ni pery glad you did." . Surreptitiously, nowever,. she shook her nead. It was not all right. She nad to get rid of him as speedily as possible. Before this town nf long ears and wagging tongues commenced its inevitable talk. "How did you find me?" she asked. "Why, 1 went to your boarding house. The maid, who seemed to be the only person there, said you were still at school. She told me how to gel here." Miss Johnson felt slightly re:, lieved. The maid would be Milbe. Mrs. Copeland's chief helper. Millie, whose mind was a virtual blank, had a flair for forgetiul- nes« that would have been envied by « lotus-eater. If Mrs Copeland had been out. the chances were she would never hear of Adrian's call. Which would ho lust as well. "Look here," said Adrian, "can you call It a day and come (or » ride? We've things to talk over. Cora. And it's too nice to stay indoori." At her direction he drove >ut of the town. Sprln» had begun its worn in earnesi and the wtr* lush and greening. Kaye looked about him appreciatively. "Nice country, this. Fellow might get him a little farm and ..." He checked himself. "There I go! As if you wanted to hear a transplanted city man's views on the country. I'd do better to tell you just why 1 came." "I thought it was to see me," she said shyly. "That was the main idea, of. course." He half-turned to her. that same steady look in his eyes. "And now that I've seen you. I'm glad I yielded to the impulse But there was another reason. Cora. 1 think you know what it is." "How could I?" But she Knew very well. And she could not blame him for wondering, and even coming in person to find out Only, how could she ever tell him. The answer was. she couldn't Not if she were to he dragged behind wild horses. "Well," Kaye's eyes were straight ahead again, "I'm afraid, then, that I failed. I tried to tell you how much your letters and your friendship—though 1 only had it at long range, so to speak —had come to mean to me But 1 guess 1 didn't make myself clear." Miss Johnson bit her lip. "Oh, Adrian, I'm so sorry. Naturally, you've wondered why I haven't written to you lately," • • • OE nodded. "And also, frank*• ly, why your letters got shorter all of a sudden, way back last fall? Less frequent, too. and not quite the same? And then why they stopped completely about three months ago. although I've written since? Now," he raised a hand as she would nave spoken, "just give me another second I know I've no claim on ytmr time, Cora. You certainly weren't compelled to go on writing. \f tt became » chore But hearing Iroro you tod got ta ut pretty im- portant to me. Important enough to bring me down here, to see what the trouble is. But if you care to tell me, there's one thing I hope 1 won't hear. I hope you didn't stop because anything in any of my letters offended you." "Offended? Good heavens, nol It's just that 1 seem to have had a terribly hectic year. 1 don't quite know why. But my school work has been rather heavy and, foolishly. I got involved in some of the—the activities around the town. Then I had a touch of flu last winter and—oh. what with one thing and another. 1 lust didn't get around to writing. I'm sorry But I haven't any real good excuse." « • • DECEIVING mail at Mrs Copeland's was different from receiving it at .he impersonal boarding house in the city The poitma- did not arrive ur.tii long after Cora Johnson had departed £or school. Mail 127 on the hal) table until claimed by incoming lodgers to whom it was addressed. And suppose (since Miss Johnson's association with Mrs. Symes. all Kinds of chimerical suppositions had tormented ner) somebody Mrs Coneland htrself. one of the shoe people or Millie, light-angered at well a light-minded began wondering about this W A. Kaye. R. P 3. Iberville. N ¥.?" Adrian always put a return address on the back of the envelopes Even if that had not been his practice. Cora Johnson had never before received letters from any one person with such unfailing regularity .And certainly none in bold, obviously masculine handwriting. Miss Johnson had considered a .posUoffice box. but abandoned the Idea. And not entirely De- cause a number of gabby girls, who seemed to know everybody 1 ! business, worked at the post office. The truth was that. triKht- cncri and discouraged, she nad • lost heart. Much as she valued her pen-and-ink friendship with Adrian Kaye, It had seemed wiser to let the corrospondonct lapse, for the time ban? anyhow. (To B* Continued) SYCAMORE HOUSE at Ark-Mo.
