AVIS WAS ONE of the first vis
itors at the museum when the ex-
WWt opened the follow mg week. Her
e&gsr. anxioun inspection of the vast
gallery fillet! with sculptured pieces,
saitfht have indicated that she was
one of the most ambitious of the en
trants. Her eyes scanned one side
of the room hurriedly, darted to the
other end. Even in that brief in

He grinned boyishly. “Yo* are

As if she would refuse! She cared
nothing about comparing the taients

and he waa alone with his little mo

Camilla was the first to intrude
into that sanctuary of hl3 thoughts,
and it was almoet as if he would
speak with her that he turned toward
Avis. Thus abruptly returned to the
time, place and reality, his face
i louded for an instant, like the sun
is dimmed by the sudden passing of
a small white cloud.
Ills comment was changed to,
“Well, it's there!" with a long sigh
of near-satisfaction. “Now let's see
what argues with it." His critical'
eyes roved over the room. "Shall
we try to pick the winner?"
They roamed about the room, com

around. “That sea gull with spread

here that can compare with either

road at a cost of $1 per person -and
then a stiff climb on foot of almost a
mile.
At its meeting here last week, the
highway commission autnorized a sur
vey for a new highway that will extend
to within 100 yards of the tower on
the summit. This new survey will
start at Buswick, on route 104, that
connects with route 69 at Micaviile and
with route 10 a ew miles west of Ma
rion. Much of the cost of building
this road will be paid for from funds
allotted to the U. S. Forest Service,
since most of Mount Mitchell is with
in the Pisgah National Forest. Be
cause of the dense growth on Mit
chell. the new survey will probably
not be started until this fall, when
the leaves are off the trees. Chair
man Jeffross does n ot believe it would
be possible to start construction on
thi road until next spring or summer.
But he is confident that the road will
be built.

you in uny hurry for your stuff?*'
“Not if you havs something mere
important to do. I can wait."
“Not at all. I Just want to know
where to begin. I'm at your aorvlo*
if you say so."
"I do say so!" she declared. “How
about coming to tea at the house to
morrow and consulting with mother
about the gulden piece first. You
can get them modeled and while do
ing the stone work you can fill In
on my things at the studio.”
“Fine!” he agreed. “You’re a great
planner, aren’t you?"
"Plans are only great If they work
out to the proper advantage.”
“And whut is that advantage?**
“Your success. It all depends on
I you," she replied, with more signifi
cance than he knew.
"That suits me."
They were standing outside now,
beside her smart coup*, parked at
the curb. “I’ll drop y*u at the stn
dio,” she suggested.
"Thanks a lot. But I'd rather walk,
to help work off soone of this newly
acquired enthusiasm. Too much at
one time is bad far the mental bal
ance. l>kl you ever feel giddy with
inspiration? Well, that is my pres
ent condition,” he grinned “Besides,
1 want to drog> In somewhere right
away and ’pJmne Camilla the good
news. She will be anxious to bear. I
promised to let her know as soon as
possible."
Avis set her teeth hard over hie
loyalty to Camilla. It had not wa
vered since that first wotnent on the
night pf the tragedy. Nor had she
dared mention to him the incident,
even to learn w hat his reactions had
beer, or what they had said to each
other. There are some forbidden
places into whkli even the most au
dacious and unscrupulous may not
enter. She would Just have to be pa
tient and await the outcome. Her
campaign was now prolonged and
confronted with added difficulties,
i'lut she was a good warrior who
never admitted defeat.
“Well, so long." she waved gayly,
and darted away with a roar of the
powerful motor.
Camilla was jubilant over Peter’s
announcement. “I knew It would
get In." she told him. "Congratula
tions. darling. 1 have a little special
dinner all prepared to celebrate to
night. Be there at six. will you?”
“Okay, sweetheart. But you took a
pretty long chance getting that cele
bration ready before the victory,
didn't you?”
"I disagree. It was a sure thing.
But even so, a celebration was in
order. It is quite an event to havs
you for a dinner guest, even."
He laughed. "You won t think it’s
nn event when you have to face me
across the dinner table every day for
the rest of your life," he warned.
"It won't be. It will be—paradise."
she declared.
{TO BE COXTIKUED*
Mitchell and who otherwise could
have visited it have been prevented
from doing so for years because of
the excessive tolls charged over the
private road, now the only road up
the mountain,” says Gol. J. W. Har
relson, director of the Department of
Conserva%>n and Development. “A
state road should have been built up
this mountain years 'ago especially
since the state owns 1.20 G acres on
the summit as a state park. The re
ceipts from the gasoline tax from those
who would have visited the top of the
mountain would have paid for the
road and will pay for the one now
contemplated.”
CARD OF THANKS.
We take this means of expressing
our heartfelt thanks and appreciation
to the many friends and neighbors
for their many expressions of kindness
and sympathy shown us during our
recent beverement, the loss of our
son and brother, C. D. Poindexter. We
thank those for the many and beauti
ful floral designs.
Mr. and Mrs. F. D. Poindexter.
