All that he know was that a driving force was upon him, urging him against his judgment, almost against Ids will, and he lacked the power to resist It. Pause he might, hut rest he could not,. ITnfil he knew the ultimate truth regarding her, he was hound to go on. He began to consider his next step, lying prone on the siin-hnkod grass, hut no inspiration enme to hint. He only realized at the end of n quarter of an lionr that, the breathing space Ware over and that he must go. He supposed he must return to Harvey, and contemplated telling him the whole story. Fie must already have guessed something, and he had a quick brain which might he of use. nut would he understand the in evitability of the thing? Or would he laugh him to scorn for his per sistence Tiggie'.s face began to burn as if he already heard his hrother-in-law’s derisive chuckle. No. he could never stand that at this stage. If Harvey laughed, he would probably knocK him down, though he was by no means a violent man. But this thing had gone too far for laughter and too far for turning back. Whatever Harvey nr anyone else might say or do. he was going on row. It was not in him to act otherwise. 110 stumbled rather heavily to his feet and him. 'Pill thnt moment in. the excitement of the chase he had paid small atten tion to the heat of the day, hut. now It smote upon him with insistence. He stood still for a second or two. feeling dazed. And across his brain, darkened by a brief dizziness, there flashed a sudden picture. He saw the sun rising in a glory of orange and scarlet over the Arabian desert, and was conscious of a slight, dove like being, pressed closely to his side as one who seeks a refuge. It was gone again in an instant, but It left him oddly unsteady, like a sleepwalker abruptly awakened. So she had leaned upon him, so she liad clung to him; and now. . . . He turned resolutely, with that dogged determination which had lately developed within him, and marched away as though ho had been on parade. Rounding the clump of trees that bad sheltered him, he came within aight of the spot where ho had left Harvey; but there was no Harvey row to be seen. "Oh, where the devil has be got tor* said Tigglo irritably. ll© had left Harvey near a neat, which was now unoccupied, but as, he drew near he caught sight of the two suitcases beside it. This was re a'’.'Turing. Evidently Harvey was not far away. Tiggie sat down squarely and wiped his face. It was his turn to wait. • • • There waa no one near. The place wa« practically deserted, for It was the luncheon hour.

He was going to find i her and make 'n»r tell him exactly ho » thnvgs stood. Then—possibly— he m*£i.t ob'eover away to help her. ! lie was sure, deep in bis inmost soul, : that she needed hilp. What his n*xt step would be to achieve his end he did not know. Perhaps Harvey when he returned 1 might be able to suggest something; for he had decided to take Harvey to a certain extent into his confi dence. But till he returned there was nothing to be done, and certainly the enforced rest was not unwel come. In tact he- very soon ceased to chafe at it, and. lighting his pipe, sat in quiescent meditation, awaiting the absentee’s return. The realization that he was over poweringly sleepy came tipon : him after several Jerky efforts to ksep his head rigid had failed. The whole atmosphere had become slumberous, and after all he did not see Why re pose as well as luncheon should be denied him. None but a strong, silent hero womd have .sat erect and un yielding for an’ indefinite period in that heat, and Tiggfc had never aspired to he this. He was not made of heroic mould, and he detested physical discomfort. When his ; drowsiness became too apparent to bo Ignored even by himself, he abandoned all attempts to defy it,, and slipping comfortably down upon the grass, he pocketed his pipe, turned the suitcases into a pillow, and philosophically went to sleep. It was nearly an hour later that he was awakened by the sound of running feet, and sitting up. blink ing. discovered Harvey racing across , the grass towards him. "Oh, don’t run like that!" pro- ; tested Tiggie ere he reached him. “It 1 makes me hot to look at yon. What ■ Is It? Fire? Murder? Or mere highway robbery?-" \, ; Harvey dropped beside him-like a i shot hare. “Oh, man, I’ve had the ] devil’ of a timeP ,; 'he panted. '.'But j I’ve got her! You nip along quick i to that house at the corner that you - went to this morning, aad you’ll be ’ there before she la-!

( Harvey made an urgent gesture, t “The girl — the one you’re looking for Wotturioht bit Ethel Mary Ravage) HENDERSON, (N. C.) DAILY DISPATCH, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1934 —the 'Aquamarine' girl!

Or she’ll give you the slip—as she did before.” Tiggie waited for no more. What means Harvey had employed thus to find out these details of his quest did not concern him then All that mat tered was the gist of his disjointed remarks, and this he grasped with a quickness for which Jater he allowed himself a certain amount of credit. Without further parley he rammed his hat on to his head and swiftlv departed, leaving Harvey gasping on the ground. Over the dry grass he ran with the speed of concentrated purpose. His rest had refreshed him. and he was more than ready forth battle. Once more he sighted the tall house at ihe corner which had been the scene of his recent defeat, and he noticed— what ho had not noticed before—that the whole length of its garden was bounded by a side road. His brain leapt beyond Harvey’s urgent injunction to wait at the cor ner. Where there was a fence, there was probably a door; and if she were indeed there and wished to enter un observed, would she choose to do so by that wido Tront garden or those glaring steps? He reached the road and crossed it, dodging the traffic al most without seeing. Now he win at. the corner and pulled himself up. People were passing to and fro. lie paused a moment to get his i . ( th. Then, moving more quietly, ho turned Hie coiner and looked down the side road. It was a quiet road with an avenue of young trees planted along it. There was a tradesman’s van stand ing close to him, and a man with a basket on his arm was in the act of passing through a small door In the fence that evidently led in the direc tion of the kitchen premises of tho forbidden house. A few yards fur ther down the road an old man was walking slowly towards him; and some distance behind him moving very quickly, almost running, he saw tho fig-ure of a girl. It was a very fleeting vision, for even as he discerned her she turned sharply aside in the path and disap peared through the fence, obviously by a door similar to ihe one by which he stood. It was enough for Tiggie. Without a moment’s consideration he follows* the tradesman into the garden. The lad was already half way along a path that Led downwards between shrubs to the back door. He was whistling the latest jazz love-song with piercing vehemence, and he swung oft almost Immediately to his destination, leaving a path that forked to the right towards the gar den. anu dow'n this Tiggie instantlv turned.

Selection of the eight teeams to compete in the tourney will be made Friday of this week at a meeting of the basketball tournament commit tee at the University of Virginia. Dr. Ray R. Sermon, of N. C. State, chair man, said a full committee would be present. Since only eight of th eten teams composing the Southern Conference will be selected to participate in the tourney, at least two or more bril liant forwards will be tmissing as every team in the Conference pro duced at least one .top notch forward this winter, and some as many as two. Jim Thompson, of Duke, and Fred die Tompkins, of South Carolina, have paced forward play this season, and their game will be watched closely during the tournament. They are re garded as two o fthe finest players in the Conference and basketball fans are anxious to know which is the bet ter. The tournament may solve the question. Thompson and Tompkins were nam ed on the No. 1 all-tournament team last year, Thompson as a center.
