GIRL AT LARGE
By Sylvia Graebet.
r\R. ROBERT
M’RAE, nerve
specialist In the
National Capital,
went about the
business of find
ing Col. Tayloe’s
daughter with
habitual coolness. >
But before decid
ing upon a plan of
action, he reread
the colonel’s fran
tic plea that had
Just been handed to
him, special deliv
ery. It read:
"Dear Bob:
"That red-head
ed, 18 - year - old
daughter of mine
has balked and run
away to New York
to show me she can
get along on her _
own hook.
"She has’nt any
money and may
run into God knows wnat, so picase i
remember your dad and I were real
pals and do your best to find her. |
Just so you keep It quiet. Bob—the
family doesn’t want any publicity.
Here's her picture. Keep me posted.
"Yours,
‘ RICHARD TAYLOE.
"P s —She has a mole on the left
leg—just above the knee.”
McRae considered. He wasn't very
keen on this notion of pre-arranged
marriages himself. Parents had a
way of being high-handed about such
things. It had never been his in ten- j
tion to marry Virginia Tayloe unless i
she happened to suit his fancy and
he hers. But partly to please his \
father partly from an Instinct for ,
avoiding trouble till trouble was nec
essary, he'd never expressed his opin
ion.
* * * *
ttis father was dead now, and the
choice was his and Virginia's.
This flight of hers amused him—
roused his curiosity. If she had that
much spirit, maybe he’d want to marry
her. without reference to any un
official contracts. He wondered what
she was like. Redheads could be very
pretty. In any case, the girl had to
be found. But how?
Looking for a girl whose only iden
tification was red hair and a mole—
there was a problem! The world
abounded in redheads; obviously one
would have to eliminate them on some
other basis than their hair. And the
mole was too awkwardly placed to
make investigation very practical. Still,
he'd have to make a try.
If he had to forego the aid of de
tectives. the police, and the news
papers. how-? Newspapers—that
was it! If the kid needed money,
she'd probably-look for a job first
thing! He'd maka a job! He'd ad
vertise for a—receptionist—a red
headed -receptionist! That ought to
fetch her in a hurry.
The response was tremendous. At
least 10 of the girLs must have become
redheads overnight in order to qualify! :
He didn't know there were so many i
. redheads anywhere.
But which one was
Virginia?
* * * *
fkVER and over
W he listened to
the recital of eager
applicants, but so
far not one faintly
tallied with the
runaway's descrip
tion. Suppose she
hadn’t come?
Then, suddenly,
there she was In
front of him. He
knew it instinctive
ly as she entered
the room and sat
down.
This was Vir
ginia. Eigh teen.
Red-headed. Who
had left home to
assert h-r inde
pendence. You
could see determi
nation in the tilted
crun. ner poise was uie rayioe tra
dition—firmly implanted within her.
He was so sure that he didn't want
to ask her name now. He would wait
until the very last for that.
So he began on an eccentric note:
"My business ist nerves. My clien
tele is Park avenue. Do you think
you’d like to be soothing at all times?"
And without waiting for an answer,
he went on: "Your voice most be
soothing over the telephone—and
soothing when people call. That's the
keynote around here.”
* * * *
"T'M SURE I could be—soothing.”
she drawled. McRae was elated.
"What training have you had that
might—convince me of your adap
tability for the position?”
“Why, I've had to soothe my father
all my life—and he has a powerful
bad temper!" That was surely Col.
Tayloe! But he had to be positive.
The mole identification!
"One thing more, young lady. Good
form is too important to be over
looked . . . Will you let me have a
look at your knees?” In a moment
he would be sure she was Virginia.
Then lightning struck. The docile
working girl slapped him on the cheek.
He apologized: "It’s not what you
think—please forgive me—I Just want
ed to-”
She looked at him. startled. "Who
are you? What are you driving at?"
And she made for the door.
"Please. Virginia!” he stopped her.
"Virginia!” she exclaimed. "Then
you know me! Well. I know you—
now. You’re Bob McRae! The name
didn't register at all when I came in!
You're the one that I—Dad said that
he and your father planned our wed
ding when we were babes in arms!
Aren't parents the limit?”
'Don't run away again,” he plead
ed. although she showed no signs of
leaving now. "I’ve been plenty worried
aDout you. And so has your dad.
And that last idea you mentioned
doesn t sound so bad! Whet say we
have dinner and talk over old times?
