The Hollow
of Her Hand
He got out and gave directions to
the chauffeur. Then he did a very
strange thing. He hailed another taxi
and, climbing in, started off in the
wake of the two women. From a
point of vantage near the corridor
leading to the "American bar," he saw
Hetty sign her slips and move off
toward thq left. Whereupon, seeing
that she was quite out of the way, ho
approached the managers office ana
.asked for accoinmodatons.
"Nothing left, sir,"
"Not a thing?"
"Everything has been taken for
weeks, sir. I'm sorry."
"Sorry, too. I had hoped you might
have something left for a friend who
expects to stop here a Miss Castle
ton." "Miss Castleton has just applied.
.We could not give her anything."
"Fortunately we could let her have
rooms until eight this evening. We
were more than pleased to offer them
to her for a few hours, although they
are reserved for parties coming down
from Liverpool tonight."
Booth tried the Cecil and got a most
undesirable room. Calling up the
Savoy on the telephone, he got her
room. The maid answered. She in
formed him that Miss Castleton had
just that instant gone out and would
not return before seven o'clock.
"I suppose she will not remove her
trunks from the station until she finds
a permanent place to lodge," he in
quired. "Can I be of Tiny service?"
"I think not, sir. She left no word,
, sir."
He hung up the receiver and
straightway dashed over to the Savoy,
hoping to catch her before she left the
hotel. Just inside the door he came
to an abrupt stop. She was at the
news and ticket booth in the lobby,
closely engaged in conversation with
the clerk. Presently the latter took
up the telephone, and after a brief con
versation with some one at the other
end, turned 'to Hetty and, nodded his
head. Whereupon she nodded her own
adorable head and began the search
for her purse. Booth edged around
to an obscure spot and saw her pay
for and receive something in return.
"By Jove!" he said to himself,
She passed near him, without seeing
him, and went out into the court. He
watched her turn into the Strand.
When the night boat from Dover to
Calais slipped away from her moor
ings that evening, Hetty Castleton and
her maid were on board, with all their
bags and trunks, and Brandon Booth
was supposed to be completely at sea
in the heart of that glittering London
town. The night was fog-laden and drip
ping, and the crossing promised to be
unpleasant. Wrapped in a thick eea
ulster Hetty sat huddled up in the lea
of the deckhouse, sick at heart and
miserable. She reproached herself for
the scurvy trick she was playing on
him, reviled herself and yet pitied her
self. A tall man came shambling down
the narrow space along the rail and
stopped directly in front of her. She
started in alarm as he reached out his
hand to support himself against the
deckhouse. As he leaned forward, he
"You were thinking of me, Hetty,"
said the man.
For a long time she stared at him,
transfixed, and then, with a low moan,
covered her eyes with her hands.
"Ie it true is It a dream?" she
He dropped down beside her and
gathered her in his strong, eager arms.
"You were thinking of me, weren't
you? And reproaching yourself, and
hating yourself for running away like
this? I thought so. Well, you might
just as well try to dodge the smart
est detective In the world as to give
me the slip now, darling."
"You you spied on me?" she cried,
in muffled tones. She lay very limp in
his arms.
"I did," he confessed, without shame.

be doing at this moment if I hadn't

ceased, bell-buoys whistled and clanged
about them; the sea suddenly grew
calm and lifeless; they slid over it as
if it were a quavering sheet of ice;
and lights sneaked out of the fog and
approached with stealthy swiftness.
Bells rang below and above them,
sailors sprang up from everywhere and
calls were heard below; the rattling of
chains and the thumping of heavy lug
gage took the place of that steady,
monotonous beat of the engines. Peo
ple began to Infest the deck, limp and
groaning, harassed but voiceless. A
mighty sigh seemed to envelop the
whole ship a sigh of relief.
Then it was that these two arose
stiffly from their sheltered bench and

about them.

mall. He was waiting for her on the
platform when she descended from
the wagon lit in the Gare du Nord.
Sleepy passengers crowded with them
into the customs department. She,
alone among them all, was smiling
brightly, as if the world could be sweet
at an hour when, by all odds, It should
be sleepiest. '

She was ravenously hungry by tho
time they reached the hotel, Just from
listening to his dissertation on chops
and rolls and coffee as they are served
in Paris, to say nothing of waffles and
honey and the marmalade that no Eng

Alone in his room, however, he was
quite another person. His calm assur
