When the hot spel! in July came,

tired of my own table that I would
have gone anywhere but because I

said John easily.
"No, she won't," I protested. "If she
would, going away would be simple."
I know that MnllBsy needed supervi
sion to mako her of any earthly ubo.
"If I tako a vacation, Maliesy will
take one; then who will get your
meals and mako up your bed and
cleari your tub?"
"I will," insisted John, stoutly. "If
Malissy goes off. You run on to tho
chore, and forget Malissy for two
weoks. 9he's getting on your nerves."
John persuaded mo into thinking
that it was my duty to go. It was a
fact that I was completely flattened
out by the heat. When I went to
market, my brain refused to tako in
the relative merits of potatoes and
beans, peas and spinach. I shut my
eye, poked my finger at a vegetable,
and took it. It Baved planning.
Before I left I had a heart-to-heart
talk with Malissy. I told her I was
going away and I wanted her to take
good care of Mr. Green In my ab
sence. She was to see that his mel
ons were ripe, that his coffee cooked
fifteen minutes, that his toast was
properly browned, that his mattress
waB turned every day, and pay heed
to various other minute directions,
such as a loving wife naturally thinks
of in connection with her husband's
comfort Malissy listened respectful
ly and gave me glib assurances that
she would look after Mr. Green, "same
as If I wuz peekin' ovah huh shoul

wo parted amicably, though I felt a
John put me on the train one slz
ellng afternoon. If my ticket hadn't
been paid for. I should have turned
back, I felt so guilty leaving John In
such heat with only an irresponsible
negrcss to look after him.
The shoro was delightfully cool and
the "Inn" had an excellent table.
For nlno days I enjoyed the luxury
of loafing. I got sun-burned and fat,
and, on the tenth day, panicky. I
could feel in John's letters something
wrong, though thoy were pointedly
ehcerfuf. Without letting him Into
the secret, I packed my trunk and
I let myself into a deserted apart
ment. The rooms had a peculiar,
gray look. When I went over to my
dressing table, I saw that; the dust
on It was thick enough to hide the
color of the furniture. John's bed had
the spread carefully drawn up over
two very soiled and wrinkled sheets.
Malissy was nowhere around. Judg
ing from the condition of the apart
ment, she hadn't been anywhere
around since I left.
I found myself without a maid, and
la a dlshearten'lngly dirty home. The
kitchen was full of dirty dishes. J
surmised that John had been getting
his own breakfast and using clean
dishes as long as the supply lasted.
Congratulating myself upon the
muscle and enrgy that ten days of ten
nis and loafing had equipped me with,
I called in the Janitor, and together
we scrubbed and dusted and swept the
