But she did not like to feel that he was staying simply because he had nowhere to go and nothing to do. Miss Maggie did not believe In able bodied men who had nowhere to go and nothing to do and she wanted very much to believe In Mr Smith. She had been under the Impression that he was getting the Blalsdell material together for a book, and that he was Intending to publish it .himself He had been ver) happy and interertcd. Now he was unhappy and uninterested. His book must be ready, but he was making no move to publish It. To Miss Maggie this could mean but one thing, some financial reverses had made it Impossl ble for him to carry out his plans, and had left him stranded with no definite aim for the future. . She was so sorry! but there seemed to be nothing that she could do She had tried to help by Insisting that he pay less for his board; but he had not only scouted that Idea, but had bought her more chocolates and flowers than ever for all the world as if he had divined, her suspicions and wished to disprove them.
