Miss Van Gorder looked at her
keenly. The young face seemed curi­

afternoon light.
“ You— you don’t really feel very

The girl turned her face a little
away from her aunt’s scrutiny,

from between lowered Mils. “ I got

“ Did you dear?
That’s splendid,
though— but I'll tell you about that
later. Where did you get him?”
“ That good agency— I can't remem­

restlessly over her eyes, as If remem­
bering details were too great an e f­
fort. “ But I'm sure he’ll be satisfac­
tory— he’ll be out here this evening—
he— he couldn’t get away before, I
believe. What have you been doing
all day, darling?”
“ W e have had a domestic uphe aval.

"A unt Cornelia— how excitin g! I'm

“ Oh, I'll get some from Lizzie In the

to laugh.
“ I think I must have a

“ There's nothing anybody can do for
me, really,” she said soberly.
“ At
least— oh, I don’t know what I'm say­
in g! But don't worry. I’ m quite all
right. I may go over to the Country
club, after dinner— nnd dance. Won’t
you come with me, Aunt Cornelia?"
"Depends on your escort," said Miss
Cornelia tartly. “ I f our landlord, Mr.
Itlehard Fleming, Is taking you, I cer­
tainly shall— I don't like his looks and
never did I”
Dale laughed. “ Oh, he's all right,"
she said. “ Drinks a good deal and
wastes a lot o f money— but harmless
enough. No— this Is a very sedate
party— I'll be home early.”
“ W ell, In that case," said her aunt,
“ I shall stay here with Lizzie and my

“ Well, maybe I ’ll send you a mes­

said Dale lightly.
She hud paused,
half-way up the (light of side-stairs In
the alcove, and her aunt noticed how
her shoulders drooped, belying the
lightness o f her voice. "Oh," she went
on, "b y the way— have the afternoon

to think the cashier robbed It. Did
you see that, Dale?"
The shoulders o f the girl on the
staircase straightened suddenly. Then
they drooped again. “ Yes— I saw It,’’
she said In a queerly colorless voice.
“ Too bad. It must be terrible to— to
have every one suspect you— and hunt

“ W ell,” said Miss Cornelia, “ a man

“ Thanks, darling. Maybe I ’ll take

need is to lie down fo r a while.”
She moved on up the staircase and
disappeared from the range o f Miss
Cornelia's vision, leaving Miss Cor­
nelia to ponder many things. H er trip
to the city had done Dale no good, of
a certainty. I f not actually 111, she
