CHAPTER FIFTEEN
Philip was punctual. His
brown eyes behind the rimless
'■glasses looked agreeably sur
prised at the change that four
years had wrought in the girl
who admitted him into the
Alison saw no change in him.
Wearing a dinner jacket he
was still a young man with a
nice face, an honest face and
with an aura of tradition and
dignity and becoming sim
plicity. Philip would always
"keep the rules and send flowers
-to his girls and be courterous
"to old people. He would always
-be on time and have the eve
ning beautifully planned. All of
which suggested dullness. But
he was neither dull nor unat
tractive.
He said, “It’s grand seeing
you here in Washington again,
Alison.”
“Thank you. Philip. T?resa
will be down in a few minutes.”
He went in the living room
as one familiar in a house Once
more when Alison was within
his vision he looked pleasantly
surprised.
His mind was taking an im
pression of her when he said,
•‘Edna tells me vou’re taking a
business course. Le; me know
when you finish. I don’t see any
reason why I can’t use you in
my own office. ’
"i a liKe tnat very mucn.
He laughed briefly quietly.
“These last four years have
been nothing but a headache to
me. but when I see what they’ve
done for you, I begin to think
that maybe they’ve been worth
while after all.”
But Teresa was coming into
the room and Philip’s love was
shining through his eyes. Terisa
in a long black dress with Title
sequin bows sewed to the skirt
and a white fcx jacket on which
she had pinned the orchids. Te

resa seductively abof, glit
tering, her fair beauty in
destructible, surely. I. was good
to see that it was not going
begging tonight. Philip felt it
and absorbed it and for a mo
ment was a man entranced
runny. lou'i it
wonderful having Alison here? I
feel so safe about leaving Suzy.
The flowers are lovely. Philip ’
As she pulled on long white
gloves she turned to Alison and
her smile was strained and un
real. “Will you see what you
can do to entertain her tonight?
You’ve worked her up into a
state of excitement. See wJ»«*t
you can do to get her quiet.
Good-night, dear.1'
Philip asked, ‘When am I
ever going to see that child?
She’ll be grown up before I ever
see her in her childhood.”
“I’ll let you have the first
date with her,” Teresa said.
Upstairs Winnie was helping
Suzy into her pajamas.
Without a smile Suzy de
clared, “I wanna be an
elephant.”
* » *
The day Teresa left for Flori
da Alison, despite total failure
at three stores and a horde of
grasping women, bought the
elephant costume. It had gray
pantaloons, a red bolero, a
mask with large droopy ears
end a sizeable trunk. She
brought it home and put it in
her closet.

ly good friends now and Miss
Winstead looked upon the:r
friendship with complete appro
bation. By delivering Suzy over
to Alison in the afternoon Win
nie retired more and more into
her private dream world. She
was far from well and pathetic
in her dependence. Anson
couldn’t help wondering who
her successor would be.
She had not seen Sam since
the night he had taken her to
dinner. Consequently each day
riding home on the trolley she
could feel herself both urging
the trolley to go faster — and
more slowly. It was as
though one part of her wanted
to hurry to the house to see
him while another urged post
ponement. It was strange to
wish for postponement of some
thing she wanted as much as
she wanted Sam’s presence. Yet
while wanting him it was some

Wonder Minerals
FOR THOUSANDS of years
sufferers, on advice of doctors,
go to mineral springs to get
cure, or relief. The late Presi
dent Roosevelt used to go to
Mineral Springs in Georgia. He
was helped or would not have
gone there twice a year.
WE KAYE all heard of the
miraculous sprii^gs of Lourdes,
France, and famous Thronion in
ancient Greece, where, accord
ing to legend, Hercules, the
God of eternal strength and
youth, drank its waters and |
bathed to be forever young.
IF YOU ARE a sufferer, and

springs, try GEO-MINERAL

same minerals that can be

of your kidneys, and feel the
relief. Be sure to watch for all
this to realise its priceless value.
GEO-MINERAL Is not a phy
sic, and does not Interfere with
the foods in the intestines. It
gets down to the root, cleaning

ing. Not like physics, oils and

t
how too much, too disturbing,
too overwhelming. It was loving]
him and wanting to share with
a desperation new to her all
that she was that made him
color all of her days and all
of her nights. It was living an
other life with ardor released
on the inside while her 'ace re
tained its purity and quiet alert
ness and sensitivity.
She was walking down the
street one afterno^1 and think
ing that this was Hallowe en
and that a' soon as Suz^ awoke
she wo“iCl dress her in her cos
— when she saw Sam’s
muddy car parked before the
house.
Funny, she thought, how a
man’s car can become suddenly
so dear and important. Not j ist
a car, not just any car, but
his car that responded to his
touch and served him . . . Just
as I would respond to his touch
if he ever touched me she
thought. Then it all wouldn’t be
on the inside afraid of being
spilled over. I’d let it spill in
words I’ve never said before.
Your love makes the words of
love. They • surprise you with
their newness, those words.
They’ve been reserved and
waiting. You speak them only
once in absolute truth. If you
ever say them again they’re
hollow and fraudulent. The
words of love you speak only
once in absolute truth.
Again postponement, n e r
breath coming short, before she
lifted her hand to the knocker.
Sam opened the door, S a m
whose black hair grew from a
peak in the middle of his fore
head.
Their eyes met in astonishing
warmth and intimacy as if it
had been only a moment, not
two weeks, since he had lifted
his hand to touch her hair.
Filled with sudden self-con
sciousness she came into the
hall. Why didn’t he say some
thing? Why couldn’t they be
casual with each other as they
had been? Does it stick out all
over me, she wondered. Am I
embarrassing him? I don’t
want to embarrass you, Sam. I
want you to love me. All I ask
of life is to spend the rest of
my life with you.
“Here’s a letter for you,” he
said.
He came toward her with the
gangling, boyish grace she had
always remembered and gave
her the letter. ’ But he wasn’t
thinking of the letter. He was
thinking of her—as Alison. Not
as Teresa’s younger sister but
—as Alison.
The touch of his hand . .
“It’s from one of the girls at
home,” she said. “I still think
of it as home.” Move away a
little, Sam. Don’t stand so close
to me. It’s an old sports jacket
you’re wearing. English tweed.
Would you kiss me in Teresa’s
house, Sam? But we could
transcend houses and people,
my darling, my darling . . .
“Come in the living room,”
he said. “There’s something I
want to ask you.”
There was no fire in the fire
place today. The weather was
bland. But he stood and leaned
against the fireplace when he
said, “As I was driving up to
day I was wondering if there
was any good reason why you
and Suzy and Miss Winstead
couldn’t go back to the farm
with me for a couple of days.
That is, if you don’t mind miss
ing a few classes.”
She looked at him, forgetting
to answer at once because of
something new she saw in
Sam’s eyes. An inner exhilara
tion as if he’d made a discovery
. . . Warmth calling to warmth
so that they would meet and
glow together. An exquisite in
timacy each time they looked
at each other today.
one asked, smiling, “What
classes? It would be wonderful
for all of us to feel the sun.
Here I seem only to run in and
out of it. Tonight is Hallowe’en.
I have a costume for Suzy. If
you’ll find a pumpkin . . .”
“Find one? I’ve got one!” His
voice broke off abruptly. “Then
you’ve been . . .”
“I’ve been having imaginary
tea parties in her room. She—
she isn’t stupid. She’s been re
tarded. Once in a while you set
off a spark in her that reminds
you of Teresa.”
She couldn’t, unless she lied,
tell him that Suzy was like him
in any way. “She’s tenacious
and selfish, but she can be very
affectionate. She can’t spread
her affection around to several
people. She gives it to one per
son at a time. At the moment
she’s giving it to me.”
He smiled. “That’s not hard
to understand, giving her love
