The next hour was less of a trial to Fay than she had feared, for after the first flurry of greatings, the conversation returned to the current gossip and the girl was content to sit back and look on. That evening after her aunt and' cousin had r departed with Mr. Clayton to a country club dance, Fay strolled into the library. She extinguished the lights, seated herself by the open window and looked out over the sloping lawn to shadows which marked the clump of troes surrounding the tea-house. So it had been Captain warren who "had brought Wilburs things homo. Ho had come to see her in Paris on his first furlough after her brother was killed, and she re called him as a tall, self-contained man, with kindly gray eyes.- She wished that she had boon at home hero to receive him. With a start her thought camo. abruptly back to 4ho present and she leaned forward: Had some thing moved there benoath . that clump of trees? It must be simply her nerves, which peopled th'o shadows. With a shrug she sank back among the cushions, and her mintl reverted to the captain once more. Suddenly she was aware of a rustling in the shrubbery directly boside the window and without warning a fac^ appeared within a fe.w inches of her own! It wrffe a white, drawn face with disheveled liair and eyes which stared wildly into hers for a mo ment, while she hold* her breath in surprise and terror. The next instant it had disap peared, and thare. remained only the night breeze through the shrubbery. , chapter II The next-morning, when Fay awakened, she was ready to laugh at her own fancy of the night be fore. Her overwrought imagina tion had played her strango tricks siL.ce her nerves had given way, but never had her visions taken so startling a turn. The pallid horror of it, and tho scaring, al most maniacal eyes were like nothing sho had seen in a human being: it could only be tho stuff of which nightmares are made.
