A man stepped ' forward, a taper In hit ***** "Reg pardon, sir." ha said civilly, "It Is closing time." Ha spoke to Nordlund uk though he knew him. The flickering tight he bore sent : curious darting rays about the room. One shot up over the bust of Venus and lingered In the little hollow at the base of her throat. "All right, guard," said Nordlund. "You ii,ny come back this way and we will go with you." Tin- man went out. We heard his steps echo along the atone floors as he went from room to room to make sure that no one remained. In the Salle de Venue It was almost lark Nordlund got up and stood by the window. I could Just make out tils profile, with the sharp, tilted beard. "Culberson never came back," he said. ' Myself, I think It was a flight The guard returned with the wavering light, I rose. Nordlund stooped to tuck tti un finished sketch In his portfolio, Then 1,, glanced up at Venus and smiled. "At leant, he kissed her," he said, enigmatically. Wo followed the guard Into Hi'- corridor.
