CHAPTER XXXIX i
f T was a hard day, the hardest
Daphne had erer experienced.
She took shorthand at speed
that almost paralyzed her fin
gers. Typed telegrams with little
beads of sweat on her upper lip,
and Mr. Greely bawling from his
office door, "Isn't that wire ready
yet? Send it in when it's ready!'
In the midst of it. Miss Yardley
whose desk was in the outer of
fice came in to announce a lady
to sea Daphne.
. MA lady?" Daphne hesitated.
"Why I don't know who it could
be, and I can't come now. If I
leare this Mr. Greely will be fur
ious. Will you tell her to leare the
"All right," Miss Yardly
agreed. "She wouldn't give her
name though. She's middle-aged
and blowsy looking."
Miss Viola. Daphne decided
though why Viola fhould call on
her in the office . . .
"Those letters reatiy yet?" Mr.
Greely bellowed, and Miss Yard
Before the day was over,
Daphne had completely fty-gotten
the visitor. The woman canVfc once
again in the afternoon, butBar
ney the office boy told her severe
ly, that Mr. Greely's secretary
could not be disturbed. She left a
note with him, but in ihe excite
ment no one remembered it until
the next day.
"He's worse than I've ever seen
him," Miss Yardley told Daphne.
It's probably Just one of his
tantrums. This trouble with Mc-

is going to die you know, and he

order and he goes to church the

John's where his sister goes, and
she says it's a scream to see him

he has one of these fits on, right
up to a front pew, and he does it
for about three Sundays running,
and then when he's well' again, he

too, and makes a new one. I'll

Daphne was glad when she
could get away from the talka
tive Miss Yardly. All these illu
sions to McKevitt and trouble
frightened her. She had come to
love the old man, too, and it hurt
that he should be laughed at, even
in so friendly a way.
Five o'clock came, and six, and
she was still- at her desk, though
everyone had gone but Greeley.
Just as she was covering her
typewriter Allan Winters came in,
unannounced. Daphne mumbled
some sort of greeting and he re
turned it as unintelligibly. They
had been shy with each other, al
most hostile, since the day at the
old man's cottage. She hardly
glanced at him as he slouched
through the room, hands in his
pockets, and disappeared in Gree
ley's private office, "For such a
shy looking young man he .has
his nerve," she thought, a little
resentfully. "Nobody else would
hurst in on Mr. Greeley like that.
I hope he throws him out, that's
what I hope!"
He came dashing back a mo

come? I think he's had a stroke

one leap She war; nrido the office.
