was with a grave preoccupation that
she made herself ready to meet him.
In the dining room, Ed acknowl

"Four days," Alaire told him, real
Izing with a little inward start how
very far apart she and Ed had drifted.
She looked at him curiously for an in
stant, wondering if he really could be
her husband, or-if he were not some
peculiarly disagreeable stranger.
Ed had been a handsome boy, but he
was growing fat from drink and s6ft
from idleness; his face was too full,
his eyes too sluggish; there was an
unhealthy redness in his cheeks. In
contrast to his wife's semi-formal
dress, he was unkempt-unshaven and
soiled. His preparations for dinner
this evening had been characteristically
simple; he had drunk three dry cock
tails and flung his sombrero into a cor

I had Morales barbecue a cabrito for

hungry again." Austin attacked his
meal with an enthusiasm strange in
him. IHe was a heavy and a constant

C with them."
"That's the trouble," Alaire told

and people know me. I won't be hunill

hard enough to bear. I've about

"Indeed?" Austin leaned forward,
his eyes inflamed. His tone was raised,
heedless of possible eavesdroppers.
"Then why don't you end it? Why
don't you divorce me? I never see
anything of you. You have your part
of the house and I have mine; all we
share in comnmon is meal hours, and

Alaire turned upon him ey-s dark
with nisery. "You know why I don't

live out our agreement, and these
Brownsville episodes are going to
cease." Her lips whitened. "So are

"What do you mean by that?"

they knew that hot blood requires more
than a generation to cool, but every
thing Ed did outraged them. In trying

they succeeded in wounding her more
