CHAPTER XVI. I Face Flannigan. Dinner had waited that night while everybody went to the coal cellar and stared at the hole in the wall, and watched while Max took a tracing of It and of some footprints In the coal dust on the other side. I did not go. I went Into the library with the guilty watch In a fold of my gown, and found Mr. Harhison there, staring through the February gloom at the blank wall of the next house, and quite unconscious of the reporter with a drawing pad Just be low him In the area-way. I went over and closed the shutters before bis very eyes, but even then be did not move ' Will yon be good enough to turn 1 around?” 1 demanded at last. "Oh!” ho raid, wheeling. "Are you I here?” There wasn't any reply to that, so I took the watch and placed it on the library table between us. The effect was all that I had hoped. He stared , at it for an Instant, then at me, with \ ! his hand outstretched for it, stopped, j “Where did you And It?” he asked. I couldn't understand his expression. He looked embarrassed, but not at all afraid. "I think you know, Mr Harbison,” I ' retorted. “I wish I did. You opened It?” “Yes ’* We stood looking at each other across the table. It was bis glance that wavered. "About the picture—of you.” he said at last. "You see, down there In South America, a fellow hasn't much to do evenings, and a —a chum i of mine and 1—we were awfully down on what we railed the plutocrats, the —the leisure elaspes. And when that picture of yours came In the paper, we had—we had an argument. He said —" Ho stopped. "What did be sav?” ‘’Well, he said It was the picture of I an empty-faced society girl.” “Oh!" I exclaimed. “I—I maintained there were possi bilities in the face.” He put both bands on the table, and. bending for ward. looked down at me. * Well, A was n fool. I admit. I said your eyes were kind and candid. ir. spite of that haughty mouth. You see. I said I was a fool." "I think you are exceedingly rude,” I managed Anally. "If you want to lnow where 1 found your watch, K was down in the coal cellar And if you admit you are an idiot, I am no*.

I was crying: 1 al way a do when I am angry > 1 heard Jim coming downstairs, and 1 tucked 1 the watch out of sight. Would any ] one have foreseen the trouble that watch would make! Jim was sulky. He dropped Into a chair and stretched out his legs, looking gloomily at nothing. Then he got up and ambled Into hls den. closing the door behind him without having spoken a word. It was more than human nature could stand. ^ hen I went into the den he was stretched on the davenport with his face burled In the cushion. Ht looked absolutely wilted, and every line of him was drooping. “Go on out. Kit," he said. In a smothered voice. “Be a good girl and 1 don't follow me around.” "You are shameless!” 1 gasped. 'Follow you! When you are hung I around my neck like a- like a—” Millstone was what I wanted to a ay, j but I couldn’t think of It He turned over and looked up from ' hls cushions like an ill-treated and suffering cherub. 1 ni done for, Kit,” he groaned. “Bella went up to the atudio after wo left, and investigated that corner ” “What did she find? The necklace?” I asked eagerly. He was too wretched to notice this “No. that picture of you that 1 did last winter. She la crasy—she says she la going upstairs and sit in Ta kahiro's room and take smallpox and die.” “Fiddlesticks!” I said rudely, and i somebody hammered on the door and opened It Pardon me for disturbing you,” Bella said. In her best dear-me-l’m glad I knocked manner. "But—Flan tiigan says the dinner has not come.” “Good Lord!” Jim exclaimed ”1 forgot to order the confounded din ner!** It was eight o’clock by that time ,and as It took an hour at least after I telephoning the order, everybody looked blank when they heard. The entire family, except Mr. Harblaon, who had not appeared again, escorted "You’re Unlucky, I'm Thinkln'." Jim to the telephone and hung around hungrily, miggentlng new dlahea every minute. And then—be couldn't raise Central. It was 15 mlnutca before we gnvo up, and stood rtarlng at one an other despairingly. ''Call out of a window and get one of those Infernal reporters to do some thing useful for once ” Max suggested. But he was Indignantly hushed. We would have starved first. Jlrn was peering Into the transmitter and knocking the recel\»*r against his hand, like a watch that had stopped. But. nothing happened. Flannlgan re ported a box of breakfast food, two lemons and a pineapple cheese, a combination that didn't seem to lend Itself to anything. We went bark to the dining room ! from sheer force of habit and sat around the table and looked at the lemonado Flannlgan had made. Anne would talk about the salad her last cook had concoted, and Max told about a little town In Connecticut where the restaurant keeper smokes a j corn-eoh pipe while he rooks the most luscious fried clams In America, And i Aunt Selina related that In her family they had a recipe for chicken smoth ered In cream And men we sipped ' the weak lemonade and nibbled at the cheese. "To change this gridiron martyr dom,'* I ►alias said finally, "where’s Harblson? Still looking for bis watch ?’’ ’’Watch!" Everybody said It In a' different tone. "Sure." be responded. "Sava his watch was taken last night from the \ studio. Better get him down to take a squint at. the telephone. Likely he can fix It.” Flannlgan was beside me with the cheese. And at that moment. I felt Mr. Harbison’s stolen watch slip out of my girdle, slide greasily across my | lap. and clatter to the floor. Klannl- ' gan stooped, but luckily It had gone under the table. To have had it picked tip. to have had to explain how I got it. to see them try to Ignore my picture pasted in It oh. it was impossible! I put. my foot over It. "Drop something?” Dallas asked perfunctorily, rising Flannlgan was still half kneeling "A fork," I said, as easily as I could, and the conversation went. on. But Flannlgan knew, and 1 knew he knew. He ‘watched my every move ment. like a hawk after that., standii g Just behind my chair. I dropped tty useless napkin, to have It whirled up before It reached the floor. I said lo Betty th.u my shoe buckle was 1oo*e. and actually got tiie watch In my band. 1 only to let it slip at tbe critical mo j moot. Then they all got op aod nM aodly back to the library, aod Flanal* gan and I faced each other. Fiannlgan was not a handsome man at any time, though up to theu he bad at least looked amiable. Put now as I stood with my hand on the back of my chair, his face grew suddenly menacing The silence was absolute: 1 was the guiltiest wretch alive, and opposite me the law towered and glowered and held the yellow remnant of a pineapple cheese? And In th*' si lence that wretched watch lay and ticked and ticked and ticked. Then Fiannlgan creaked over and closed the door Into the hall, came back, picked up the watch, ami looked at It. "You’re unlucky. I’m thlnklnY* he said finally. “You’ve got the nerve •11 right, but you ain’t cute enough.** "1 don't know what you mean.*’ I quavered "Give me that watcb to re turn to Mr. llarblson.** Not on your life,’’ he retewted easily. "1 give It hack myself, like I*m going to give back the necklace, if you act like a sensible little girl.’* 1 could only choke.

Why. 1 reckon there Isn’t one of them that wouldn't lend you money If you needed It so had.” 111 you be still?" I said furiously "Mr llarblson ieft that watch—with mo -an hivi*- ngo Get him. and ho will tell yoc so himself!” "Of course he would.” Flnnnigan conceded, looking at me with grudging approvul "lie wouldn't he what I think he is. if he didn't lie* up and down for you " There were voices in the hall. Flnnnigan crime closer. "An hour ago you Bay And he told mo it was gone thin morning* It’s n losing game, miss 1 11 give you 24 hours ami then—the necklace, if you please, miss ** CHAPTER XVII.

Just to hear her voice when she ordered him out of the way. He telephoned for flowers and candy for her quite shamelessly, nnd he got out a book of photographs that they had taken on ihelr wedding Jour ney, and kept it on the llhtary table. The sole concession he made to our presumptive relationship was in bring me the responsibility for everything that went wrong, and his shirts for buttons. The first 1 heard of the trouble was from Dal. He waylaid me In the hall after dinner that night, and bis face was serious "I’m afraid we ran't keep It up very long. Kit," lie said "With Jim trail ing Bella all over the house, and the old lady keener every day, it's bound to come out somehow. Arid that isti't all. Jlrn and Harbison had a set-to to^ay—about you.” “About me!" I repeated. **Oh, I dare say 1 hove been falling short again. What was Jim doing? Abusing me?"
