Toward morning she get up

thrown herself In a conrnlsion of

She hardly recognised the red

back at her from the mirror.
She bathed her eyes In cold wat

looking Hke a crumpled and very
respondent little flower.
Finally she grew callly and
crawled into bed.
She woke much later with the
surprised feeling- that she must
have slept. She seemed weighted
down with a conviction that some
thing terrible was going to hap
pen. Then she remembered. It had
happened. Her little world had
smashed to smithereens!
Well, she wouldn't think about
it, now, or she would dissolve into
tears again. But as she lay there,
staring at the ceiling, her mind
began to nibble first at one and
then at another of the things that
had happened last night.
She just wouldn't permit her
self to think about them now!
But her thoughts darted away like
naughty children that hare been
warned not to look into a certain
Foolish! she said, shaking her
There was the sound of a wind
stirring in the boughs of the elm
and the sudden darkening of the
skies that often occurs with a roll
Then she heard the voices of

they passed the fence that closed

The smell of toast floated up to
She surely couldn't be hungry,
she thought In consternation. On
top of a broken heart!
She remembered that this was
Friday, and she had accepted an
Invitation to a luncheon bridge at
a neighbor's house across the
street. Byrd was glad to have an
excuse not to go. for she disliked
these big, formal partlee.
"Well. I find that it's Just as
easy to have a big aprty and have
It over with," Mrs. Smith had
told her. "It's just as much work
to just have a few, and this way
you get all your debts paid and
don't hurt anybody's feelings."
And some time she would have to
show her house. Just as the oth
ers did, but now she was relieved
of that, at any rate.
The little white house would no
doubt be back on the market be
fore the end of the month!
Byrd shuddered. There was no
reason to cry about that, she
scolded herself. Larry would nev
er have been able to keep up the
payments on It anyway.
Just then Mandy came bustling
in with a breakfast tray.
"Yo' Jes' stay in bed this morn
ln and rest." she said, "now yo'
mammy's gone, there ain't no rea
son fo' yo' gettln' up."
Byrd ate her breakfast. She dis

But she did go down ij -Polk.
Her eyes bore erldence of sleep
lessness and worry, and Mr. Polk
eyed her anxiously as she came in
to his office.
"Worrying again!" he scolded.
"By your face I d say you had
more cares than the president of
the United States.
Then, without any preliminar
ies. Byrd blurted out the awful
"Mr. Polk. Larry and I are not

Tear gathered In her throat In a
heary lumpj. She could get no fur

of the deep, blue wells and trembl

"I think perhaps you suspected
things weren't going as smoothly

Mr. Polk nodded.
"It's a darn shame, and I'm sor

head deplorlngly. "Tour father
and mother will be completely

"I don't want them to know

a though came to him. "Why don't

"That's Just what I was think

"It'll almost break Mandy's
heart to go," said Byrd. "I feel
as If she'd been with us all her
life. She's simply wonderful!"
"Perhaps we can find a place
for her," suggested Mr. Polk.
"But anyway, let her stay on until
the house is disposed of. Some
body ought to be there to look af
ter it. Now about this position "
"My prirate secretary's learing a
week from next Monday for a

Byrd was pleased with the sug
