Heaven knows we had warning enough. Hut then, tfa always easy to look back. In the end it was Larry who first became suspicious that all was not %.* It should be: anil in the end it was t arry who played the stellar part during the hours that were to follow. "How come you're still around here and not out with your playmate?" Tom asked Holmes Jovially as we pmt through the living room tn narhlng suits headed for the hefore breskfast dtp in the lagoon. It was well after 3 o'clock. "IHiuo isn't up yet,” Larry an swered. That pair had fallen Into the easy habit of eating together In the morn- j mg. Pauo. accustomed to early ris ing of the *roplce from childhood, gen erally nut in her appearance shortly after 7 o’clock, and LArry, by now making no secret of his strong in fatuation. had adapted his habits to hor routine. By this time they had generally breakfasted and started on an excursion to Borne part of the Is land br were out on the water. By the time Tom and I had finished our plunge, breakfasted and dressed, (one and Pilly were In evidence. It was close to 10 o'clock. Larry was visibly fidgeting. "She’ll jfrobably forgive you and melt tn your artfts," Pilly told him with a grin. "Don't get so breathless about it True lov* never runs smoothly.” “Don't be a stnoae.” Larry re torted..

It was nearly lttnch time when wc catne buck. The girls had gone up. and Tom was sewing on a sail ring which hnd pulled loose when Larry showed up. "Any of the boats out," he asked. “Don’t seem to be,” I said looking over the fleet. "Something is wrong." T,arry de clared. "None of the servants at the lioiiko have seen Pane this morning." Tom reached down, picked up a knife and snipped the string. "Come on. my good man," he said to me, “We’ll have a bite of lunch and finish thi* after siesta.” He turned to Larry: "Come on up. She'll show up for lunch.” "Maybe she Is taking a little vaca tion from your society,” I told him with a grin. "Couldn’t blame her could you?” "Nci-ts!" he snapped. "I’m going up to the village and talk to old Ling Fat. Maybe he knows where she Is." "Keep out of the sun." I cau tioned. "or you'll get crazier than you are!” Blit Holmes, striding off up the beach, didn’t answer that parting shot. We waited lunch - for a time, but Pauo failed to appear. Nor did Larry show tip. I was taking nty siesta an hour later when Larry and Tom came in and awakened me. Before anything was said I sow by their faces that something was decidedly out of order Holmes’ eyes shown with sort of a wild light, and the customary banter was lacking from Tom’s voice, "By the looks of LhlfWt something has happened to Ihiuo.” he told pie quietly. "Larry here has Jus*, been up at the village talking to the old Chinaman.' It stems a schooner stood off here last night and a boat put In here, according to the natives. A little lifter la sailed." Then I rememliered that vague im pression of hearing a hairs, motor running during the night, nnd what I told them ofily served to confirm our fears. By now I had pulled on my ■■whites", and with Larry ahead, we started for the Itvinc room. As Larry went out Tom told me I 9 an under tone: '• "This looks bad!

If you want parts of tMa picture filled In. you’ll simply have to taxe It on the chin, and take It quietly—” If you mean that this thing be tween ratio and me Isn’t mutual: that she's just been kidding me along —you're crazy!" his voice was lower pitched, hut tense. "That happens to he one thing we're not so sure of in spite of every evidence to ths contrary." Tom said musingly. "Now all of you listen to me!” Larry came to his feet and fared us challenging),!'. "I'm nofoo)and I know thnt girl like T know 'he palm of my hend! There Isn’t o double-cross ing hair in her head!" His voice had risen.
