Kl ven up nothing and a daylight ex ­

of fem inine occupation caught the eyes
of the men and held them chilled on

filled th e air, th e frag ran ce of her
passing hab itatio n still lingering in
ghostlike sw eetness a fte r th e living

Uawson moved first, shaking off the
spell. H e looked into th e open w ard ­

th e last hanger. “Going to put her
costum e th ere,” he said, touching it
w ith his index linger, lie pulled out
th e d raw ers and ran ids eye over th eir
contents. A gruy crep e dress lay
across th e foot (if th e bed, beside it a

lily garnishing the brim . “T hese,” he
said, “w ere (lie clothes left out to

B assett m aided, lie could see Sybil
in tlie gray d ress w ith h er h air a

and in the gold purse one dollar and
thirty-live cents in coins.
“T his couldn’t have been ull tin*

"W hy n o t?'’ said B assett. “ I guess
som e of us h av en ’t th a t much. She
