I something. But her words added May up 'o vague generalities. And arrived, dressed in green and gold. After Her meeting with Mrs. Symes regarding Albert's misbehavior Miss Cora Johnson had hoped fervently thai she would never again have to set foot in that fateful house. It was not During the month of May, Miss Johnson had received several letters from Adrian. In them he referred, in terms no more than pleasantly reminiscent, to their time in the city But aside from that, the tone of Adrian's tetters was highly impersonal. Adrian seemed to^have meant his "over to you, Cora Johnson." It was as If he had made up his mind not to do or say anything to influence her decision in his cast Having no more to say than she had already said. Miss Johnson replied in Kind. But each time she sat down to write, that same sense of weakness and futility assailed her She felt like a person whose character had been vitiated to a point where it seized gratefully upon the easiest course, that of aimless drifting She could only dream of a welcome and healthy change She I .„„,„„. . J% ._. ..„„... appeared entirely to lack the aVam7Mrss"jonns'on"'rVmembered will to bring it about. | tr , a , Mrs. Symes had signified In her heart she Knew that she her intention of making summer wanted to go to Adrian Kaye she thought sadly, generalities would never get her or Adrian Kaye. an inch forrader Toward the middle of June a letter came from Adrian that was less impersonal Adrian had a suggestion to make He didn't, he saic'., fcnow what she intended to do with her summer vacation. But would she consider- spending at least a week—or as long as she cared to stay for that matter—at nis place near Iberville? He hastened to add that the proprieties could be satisfied. An aunt of his. a woman in her sixties, was now living at the farm Would Cora think it over? There was. of course, no hurry about letting him know. She upon CHE was glad of that wanted time to reflect this invitation. The idea of going appealed Immensely Long since she had decided to give up her usual trip to the city. She could not afford it this year Because of the steady inroads Mrs Syrne* had made upon her salary, she had been unable to save anything. And, although th« distasteful subject hadn't come up accept the decent and unconditional ofler he had made her She wanted thai more than anything in the world Yet during all the weeks since his visit she had not formed even the ghost of a plan for solving her own problem, let alone taking post- where Adrian was myself be beaten down," she would think, nibbling the end of her pen. "And now it's too late, because I really am beaten Oh. what on earth will I say to him?" ouuftd to Mr live artion concerned. "I've let demands. Miss Johnson was not looking forward to the vacation It loomed merely as a period to be lived through, with time heavy on her hands. In the tedium of the little town. Iberville would break the monotony But would it not b« i dangerous and upsetting break? For quite a while after Adrian's departure, she had found difficulty in settling back into her usual groove. Gradually the had schooled herself to re-accept the routine But a visit to Adrian's home, seeing and being with him each day. must inevitably upset bv ftt aw<T MAiaV PUFttoiiltf Jf since that interlude would have to end. as nad the other, in a return to present surroundings. It would of necessity be ephemeral and transitory leaving oer, in the final analysis, oerhapa more disturbed than ever She might do better to refuse the invitation at once, and thus keep such peace of mind as she had. The trouble with that was, she did not want to refuse, • • • fyJISS JOHNSON put off answering the letter. She had, she assured herself, good reason for the procrastination. At this time she was involved, as she was every year, with giving her class its year-end examinations. .When that business was over, she would make her decision At last the examinations were concluded and Miss Johnson marked the papers. Albert Syroea had not done so well. The talk with him, and the talk with Mrs. Symes had not brought about an improvement in his grades « in his attitude in class. Miss Johnson bit her lip. Tbert was no doubt about what the should do There was no inward struggle. Albert did not deserve passing grade and that wai definite. No matter what Mrs. Symes said or did, Miss Johnson resolved to be honest hi her work. She decided that Albert would not be given a passing grade for the term. . "How about my grades, Miss fohnson?" The question came 'rom Albert himself, who approached her desk at the close of school. "Did I pass?" There was only one thing to do. Tell him the truth. "No. Albert. You did not," laid Miss Johnson. Albert left the room. There was no Swagger in hii walk ai he departed. But MiM Johnson told herself, at least in this thing sh« had been honest.
