ciuMen at which those who knew her
would arrive. But, thank goodness,
they wouldn't have a clue.
At Boston Thomas Blane spied her
through tbe window. His eyes
lighted. He touched the brim of his
gray bat. She could tell be was
pleased at seeing her—and, yea she
thought a little surprised.
Thao ha was in tbe coach, there by
her. with hta hat in hie hand.
“You charming thing!* he greeted
her to a low voice, aa If he didn’t
want any of the other passengers to
hear. “1 was so afraid you'd change
your mind" • -
She held eut her whfte-glevad band
and he pressed It as If ta sheer relief.
LSttau did look charming lo her
trim little white bah which hugged
hhr black wavy hair and exposed her
Woad forehead. Her coat. too. was
becoming, with Its silver fox collar.
A white gardenia snuggled down in
the soft fur. And she wore white kid
gloves, the kind with gauntlets which
turned hack over her coat sleeve.
Qtr far* was flushed. And her
dark ere* were sparkling.

"Rut not at an private," he an

higher than the other.
"Oh—no, R Isn't.* ehe answered,
and fait a little sttly. it suit at

have made to eoow or the fellows

Mrs. B. T. Woodlief.
S. I. Saunders, of Raleigh, was a
vlaftor here Sunday.
Mr- and Mrs. J. E. Hight, and son
Ralph, of Henderson, were visitors on
Sunday of Mr. and Mrs. H. A.
Woodlief.
J. A. WoodHef, had as visitors Sun
day, Mr. and Mrs. Baxter Woodlief,
and daughter, SWrley, of Raleigh; Mr

He carried Lillian's bag and lifted
it Into the baggage rack above them,
and he took pains to turn the backs
of their chairs to tbe aisle, as if be
were trying to hide her from the eye*
of the other passengers
Lillian settled herself comfortably
and smiled across at him. The train
slid out of Boston, along tbe snowy
trail leading to what Lillian believed
to be the adventure of a lifetime. It
was the trail which led from her
quaint, quiet homeland, which she
had long yearned to escape.
Blane was personable, and he fas
cinated Lillian. She observed that
his clothes were well made, and that
at ail times he had a poise which re
mained unruffled. ■*
Here was a man who could direct
her. She felt It. He could make her
a star. He stood for adventura For
big things. He wasn't the type her
mother would approve. Ha waa too
worldly. And It waa likely his an
cestors could not ba traced back to
the Mayflower, as could the Abbotts*.
Now. in Salem that was something
of groat Importance, j But. In New
York she imagined It was not the
thing one talked of. evening after
evening, between seta of chess and
backgammon f
Lillian could not prevent the
thought from scampering through
her mind—that perhaps she was fall
ing a little In love with this man.
What If she did” He was Charm
ing. She no longer felt he was e
stranger. Queerer thlftgs had oc-1
cur red. but of course, flfcr in her set
that a girl answered an ad. and
the man who had advertised fell lo
love with her.
Blane smiled hack at Lillian.
It would be delightful, having him
take her to the smart places In New
York, she was thinking. To play
where the real play boys and gtrls
played.
Perhaps he soon would forget that
she had told him she was only IS.
“What are you thinking?" be
asked.
“About home—but not wt\aj you
imagine." she answered. To qot
sorry I've left My mother wop't
even miss me for a couple of days—
she's so busy with committees and
historical societies, that sort of
thing."
"But when she does miss you?
Then what ?“
“By that time I will have registered

Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Nutt, and

probably read in tbe papers some
thing like this: ’Heiress Disappears
From Wealthy Home.’"
“Heiress?” asked Blane, as If be
didn't know.
“The newspapers no doubt will call
me that.*
“But why?"
’’Well, my father Is the Abbott who
owns a chain of grocery stores over
New England"
tOh. reaHy?" answered Blane. and

the tone of his voice would not have

Thomas Blane’s mind had gone
through the entire situation, sifting
each possibility Tor a hitch.
Bhe really waa an helresa He’d
checked up on that long before he
decided to come to Salem. Any way
ke looked at It he was to make money
by this little contact—lnveigling the
daughter of Cyrus Abbott Into a
career.
Some might call It blackmnfl—lf he
wrote that he could give him news
of his daughter, her address, etc., for
a sum. They couldn't prove any
thing really bad about him. though.
He had taken care not to pay her
fare, or to leave the town with her.
She was 18. Bhe was her own
woman.
“Ijet’s go Into the club car," ba
suggested, rising.
There Blane ordered white rock
and produced a flask frorp his hlt>
pocket.
Lillian put her hand over the top es
her glass and shook her head.
