Wednesday.) CHAPTER XII The Death Car "If you came home again your father would make a settlement upon you. He thinks you fear that the money would'destroy your marriage. But If you came hoine, he would do it for you." , "I wouldn't leave Will. I'm still of the same mind that money doesn't solve /problems." "But, Ernestine, think how nice it would be for you to be home again. It isn't as though you were happy. We can see that you aren't We can all see such a change in you this summer. And another babyl Of course, It's your own affair, but Lillian nnd your mother would be so delighted. It's Impossible for us to be friends with Will. We've" tried—" , Ernestine' smiled -scornfully * and glanced at Lorlng with such disdain that he flushed. "Never mind," he said, "you don't know how we have tried. lou don't know." •' r WllJl^]Mn^^pjecIate < yp 1 S,,..^,, tnent she was struct with a bright memory.' HIS composure, his self-assurance were broken by the npthrust Of gome powerful emotion. She was ft girl again, at her mother's house, mating up the front steps, he stood at the top In her way, looking at her eagerly, his face so—alive, disturbing. They stared at each other, remembering, caught and held together, Bat Ernestine thrust this clamoring thought away from her. This man wns Lillian's husband. This was Jonathan Hamilton's son, her father's son-in-law and adviser. He was one of her own people. "You haven't been kind to Will, any of you," she stammered, trying to bring the talk back to commonplace. "He hasn't accepted our kindness," Lorlng answered slowly. "It Isn't only that he's proud," said Ernestine. "He's Vain as well, He's different. He's entitled to his vanity." "At any cost?" asked Lorlng In a low voice. "I think there are men who would consider pride too dear— for your happiness." Ernestine's thoughts were In confusion. Lorlng's words came back to sn¥ haa nevertheless been Influence! to vexation beyond measure that Pas- tano should be 60 capable and Will so futile. Now her tears fell from her eyes In great scalding drops. What was she, Ernestine BHceland, doing in this band of cutthroats and thieves? All of Ruby Pastano's efficiency was to her nothing now but filthy rags. All her relationship with him and his family, from the beginning, had been built on mlsundertand- Ing. They were too far apart Not even affection ah* liking, not even respect could bridge the gap, the difference in Ideals, in standards, In purposes. This generous, unscrupulous man, bringing the victims of rapine so unfalteringly Into the heart of his own home was Will's friend—not hers. She had nothing in common with these people, and she would never have. And she had shut the door of her heart against her own flesh 'and blood, because of Will's pride, and had opened it to .these—these— She choked and her throat turned bitter with gall at them.

And this doubt brought another: Has my whole Instinct concerning Will been false? Is- the family's Judgment of him correct and my own mistaken?

Pns- tano's gaudy while and ^green summer bouse reared Its red roof back of them. The water was very shallow at this point so that the children could run In and out of it. "Oh, Ernestine, If you would come borne, we would be so good to you," Lorlng's voice Implored her. "We?" she asked, turning to look at him. "Is It that you want me back In the fnmlly circle or that you want to break up Will's home?" "I think he is by way of breaking up his own home," he said slowly, weighing his words, moving cautiously against her loyalty to Will. "I understand that he hasn't written to you since you came down here four weeks ago. Miiybe he wouldn't be sorry to be f re§." Ernestine laughed at this, and he said solemnly: "At this time such neglect must seem cruel to you." ''I wish." she exclaimed Impatiently, "that people were able to Ignore my so-called 'delicate condition.' After all, Will has his own problems. Let's not talk about It, Probably ho hasn t written because he has no news to write about." Lorlng was persistent and presently be took up the matter again from a different point of attack. "It's wonderful what a little money can do for children. I've noticed Elaine every time I've been down this summer. «he's so happy here— by the cool water-r-" Ernestine wondered why she listened to Him. Certainly the child had .• responded to the opportunities of the lake shore, the sleeping porch, the cool nights and sunny days. But not even for Elaine would she go back on Will -r-ori her marriage. ' It only Will would write to her! Her longing for some word from him was Intolerable. She felt that If she did not hear from him she would leave the children behind and go to Chicago. Twice she had made all her arrangements for such a trip, but both times pride had bejd her back. If anything happened to him, the neighbors would know, She wrote to Mrs. Pryor once a week or BO, Will wanted to be alone. He wanted the tie between them to be JO abeyance. She could not go after him. Not now. "Oh. Ernestine, my dear little Bister," Lorlng pleaded with her, seeing her tears, being unable to suppress h s feelings, "Why do yon keep yp»w« tied to WW, when He has brought you only unhappiness? You have done everything for hlm-everythlng. What have you hud from your marriage but poverty and child-bearing and distress? He needs to be wakened-be doesn t realise what you have meant to him, listening to him now, for the first time, and her heart trembled , the dsrfc suggestions °* *' B she cpuld hurt Will, P he flUed ** ^'^ao^*^*''Se^'^^iSe^W6^ the lake road as she advanced from the water's edge, and now abruptly the car had entered the Inlet road and swung about before the house. At this Instant when sKe became conscious of It and Its arrival, the air was still filled with the grinding of brakes, while the doors of the car spilled open and It disgorged three of four men who were carrying others. One of the two men lifted from the car was either dead or dying, for a thin bright stream ran from him as they laid him on the grass. Bright red dripped from the running board. The other man was being carried Indoors, while two tied their coats together to make a stretcher for the first man lifted out. A shout brought Madame Pastano from the house. The gardener, the houseman appeared on the run. The whole household was instantlj concentrated with skilled, practiced efficiency, so quiet, so quick tha' Ernestine was still gaping while 1 was all accomplished. The hose was running furiously across the lawn The rug was brought from the floor of the car, and thrown Into the lake with rocks on top of It. The gardenei put the hose Inside the car ana washed the floor and the miming board. An other caino from the garage with a different car rug, with a dlfferen license'plate which he changed in a moment, and the driver of the ca moved It up a little, so that the grave could be picked up In a shovel, and carried and thrown Into the lake, the fresh spot raked together. Now old Grandmother Pastano, an ancient dume who spoke not a wore of English, came from the porch, he head wrapped In a shawl, and got Int the car and sat by the window, he thick Jeweled hand resting on the edg of the glass. The car turned abou and, with a different driver, move< sedately back along the lake road whence It had come—as Innocent ai: peurlng a vehlcle | as ever rode th highway. No one had noticed her, there atth end of the lake walk, among the caru fully cut shrubs. Ernestine move back and came to the little summo house and sat down In it, for he limbs would carry her no farther. The dreadful efficiencies of .the 1'as tarios hod all this time Increased he wrath with Will. She could not bea It for him to be In a daze, to go abou with the -air which had exasperate Lillian the night Elaine was born- helpless, hopeless and confused. Sh couldu't stand the thought that h was a failure while these foreigner were thick with success. Ruby I'astano had power. He love money. He had It. He was drarnutl and generous with It. Ho wanted 1 to show. He loved to empty his pockets—knowing well where he might refill them. And all summer she had compared this man's magic with Will's fumbling. Deliberately she had shut her ears against stories of political corruption, against tales ot graft and bribery, of Ruby Pastano who was generous with policemen.
