THE SUGGESTION DICKY
FORCEFULLY MADE TO
: , MADGE ABOUT. CLAIRE
5 ?TUe one thing certain about my
life with Dicky la that as to his
reaction to any given set of cir
cumatances I( am always highly
uncertain. ' '
I "had no Idea when I had fin
ished my defiant retort , to his
stricture whether he would be
furiously angry or laugh, heartily.
But I expected the one of the two.
I was genuinely surprised, how
ever, to hare him give me a
searching look, and then say in a
careless, conversational , tone, al
beit with a hint of ice in Its in
flections: . " '
"Oh. of course, you were right!
You always are. you know. And,
publicity aside, we can't take the
risk of having Claire annoyed by
the pompous popinjay. She's
bWn' through enough, poor girl,
Vrithout having to face that blat
ant ass.", :
I agree with you thoroughly,"
I said promptly, a shade too
promptly, I feared, for-Dicky not
to guess that hjs "solicitude for
Clalreuand his apparent disregard
of me who had been "through"
as much as she, was like a stiletto
thrust in the sharpness of its
wound to my self-esteem,
i Was this another indication jus
tifying the fear which had come
to roe in Mr. Barker's, dining
room, where I had I fancied that
my husband's glances at Miss Pos
ter held unusual Interest? Or
my thought flashed back to the
conversation I had overheard be
tween Jhe two reporters, and then
farther back still to an exclama
tion of Dicky's: 'I i 'isb I could
make you raving jealous once?
was It possible that, he might be
acting a role as I had done when
I came to the Barker house?
I had no chance for speculation
upon the, subject, however, ' for
Dicky was speaking j again, and I
gave him: my undivided attention.

"The Recording Angel knows
that I'd have liked nothing better
than to have turned that Pettit
person over my knee and given
him cause to eat his meals off the
mantlepiece for the next week or
two." he said grimly, "but as long
as the Barker dame was able to
sidetrack him. and old Harry has
contrived to disable his motor car,
I may as well let t well enough
alone. I warn you, however, if
he does push his cursed Imperti
nent mug into our business again
I'll smash it1 for him, publicity or
no publicity." ;
"That will be so nice for Claire,"
I murmured silkily. : .
:I'll take care of Claire.: he
retorted. "And) I'm; not going to
go out of my " way i to encounter
the Pettit idiot. Incidentally how
did the Barker lady flag him?"
'She locked him in the root cel
lar." I replied demurely.
Dicky stared at me incredulous-

"That's worth 'the bother of the

ejaculated, while I registered the
mental pootest that Dr. Pettit's
discomfiture was - distinctly not
worth the annoyance and humili

a month's income to have , see
him when he found out where he
was!" - r h ,?.? -
He turned over the idea with
patent reflective enjoyment forarr

again. : ' -i
"Well, that's that!" 'he said
crisply, at last. "Xow, the next
