CHAPTER 19
RETURNING HUME. Camilla was [
surprised to discover how tired she
wt-s with the day's efforts. Study and [
classes at school had been peremp- 1
lory, but there was a vast difference |
between preparation for work, and 1
work itself, or even obtaining it. she
already had discovered. While she
dressed for dinner, she reviewed m
her mind some of the truth* which
had made themselves evident to hei
that day. She always had supposed
that if you were willing to work,
there was a place for you. It was
obvious that not only was that sup
position wrong, but th«;t not even if
you were capable of doing the work
you chose, you were given the op
portunity.
Gazing around at the furnishings
of the big luxurious rooms that had
• hcltored her for so long, and making
rapid calculations with the values of
her possessions, she was astounded
at the time she estimated it would
require her to earn the money they
represented.
Even if she were given the oppor
tunity to work for pay. bow long
would it take her to earn what the
clothes siie was putting on had cost
her? Her frock was an imported
model that bad cost three hundred
dollars, her shoes, twenty-five; her
stockings and lingerie another sev
enty-five. Her wardrobe and dressing
table drawers were filled with such
costly garments.
Os course, she knew that when
she earned her own living, she would
no longer patronize exclusive shop*
and wear hand embroidered lingerie.
But she wondered how many of the
women who wore such garments’
could earn the money for even very
poor substitutes. If they were obliged
to. With sudden panic, she wondered-
If she could.
Sitting before the triple cheval
glass of her dressing table. Camfite
did not see her glowing beauty. sJhe
was gazing into the vast and chaotic
abyss that gaped suddenly at her
feet —that chasm of life into which
she was about to leap. Approaches
It. she had been so confident dft<l
secure; standing now at the brftilc
and gazing Into its nbsyinal depths,
she drew bock with horror. Then
suddenly." there appeared before her
Peter's dear and earnest face, the
grave eyes sparkling with that an*lie
rlie loved, and she reached out Auf
clasped his hand, no longer afraid.
She was ready to leap into life—w*4fb

Interest, striving for a new effect hh
fore the Idea should become lost lit
the ethereal confusion of escaped in
spirations that their originator* bad
tailed to capture quickly enotfeh;
His hands were gray with piadtle
'lay and his mind was projected Alto
the realm of creative fancy. A knock
in the door suddenly Interrupted tl#

him back to reality.
His forehead wrinkled with annoy

might be Camilla who had com* to

"Come In." He always wanted to
see Camilla, no matter how distilrtl

“You aren’t by any chance a detective?”
qulred, raising her very blue -eyes
that were deeply shadowed with
long, dark lashes. Their contrast
with the pale gold of her huir was
startling and effective.
“I can’t deny that," Peter replied.
“I’m Sylvia Todd." she offered.
“Miss Todd. how do you do." I
Peter Inclined his head slightly.
"What may I do for you?"
“Give me some work.” she came to
the point quickly. “I’m a mode), and
desperate for work." She took a oig
aret from her purse and fired it With
a lighter from the table beside her.
Peter daubed tentatively at the
clay figure on the turn stand. “I'm
afraid you have come to the wrong
place for that.”
“You have a model now?”
“No”
“Welt, you're a sculptor, aren't
yW? Two and two nuke four."
“Exactly. And five and five make
ten—that's two days for « model. I
can’t afford oOe.”
“And where do you expect to get
without one?”
“I manage. I did that without one."
H« indicated the grodp In (he win

casually. “Not bad. But neither wHI

"You mean nudes.”
“Sure. Symbolic stuff. That's wbat

“I noticed ft when you walked

She laughed shortly. “You would,

Mb. Newman Improving.
C. D. Newman and daughters,

lief and Fred Perdue spent yesterday
in Richmond, Va., with Mrs. Newman
who is a patient in the Tucker Sana
torium. Friends of Mrs. Newman will
be glad to hear that her condition
shows marked improvement and that
she will return to her home within
the next few weeks
ing expression for a moment. “A
girl friend?"
“You aren’t, by any chance, a de
tective?” he inquired.
"M 1 were.” she laughed, “I might
not be out of work."
”1 don't know.” Peter observed.
“The depression has hit everything.”
“Don't 1 know It? Models in par
ticular. Say. listen. Big Boy. when
there’s work enough to go half way
around, this baby has more than she
can do.”
”1 don’t dbubt It.”
"But that isn't now.” She tossed
the stub ot her cigaret into a tray
and walked across the room to stand
beside Peter. A heavy fragrance en
veloped him. and some latent mem
ory stirred. Unconsciously, he won
dered where he had been surrounded
by that same perfume before. Its
pungent sweetness denied a cheap
variety and seemed incongruous on
a girl who was desperate for work.
Os course, a girl like Sylvia Todd
spent money extravagantly alien she
did have it and therefore was the
more desperate when she did not. he
concluded. She was saying in a con
fidential voice, "Tell you what I'll
do. Mr. Anson. I’ll work for half the
regular pay. everything being on the
down and down as it is. And if I
were not hungry—you being on the
bottom, yourself—l’d work for you
for nothing," she added softly.
The word “hungry" startled Peter
and touched that responsive chord
In blit) that denied no creature hla
pity. 'Te it as bad as that?" he de
manded anxiously.
She nodded, her bead lowered, and
w hen she looked up again the bln*
eye* glistened with tears, like dew on
blue violets: But she smiled wanly.
"I wsHwe out here all the way from
seventy-fifth, so I could use my last
dime for a sandwich to have strength
to Work on."
“Wot whs* made you think I would
hire yntr?”
“I heard yon were going to enter
the exhibit, and had no model yet.
Dorft yoff think I would do?" wist
fully.
"Yon might—ts I needed a model,"
he said thoughtfully, as ts he were
coasMerttg something. Finally, “Tell
yon what I'll do—let me give you a
dollar Mr some dinner and I’ll think
it over again. If I decide that I need
you and cam afford to pay you. I*o
let you Me* tomorrow. That's (be
