DAILY DISPATCH, SATURDAY, AUGUST 11, 1934 SOCIETY NEWS SILVER SLIPPERSsfeL CHAPTER a« PENELOPE said, later, to old John Leonard, “She is getting over it." "Thank God . . The two of them were sitting a little apart from the rest of-the picnickers. Joan was filling the children’s plates with a second helping “Drumsticks, drum sticks, who wants a drumstick?” she chanted, .holding aloft a fork on which was impaled a brown morsel 9t deliciousness. “It has been a hard experience,” •*d John stated, "but she has weath •r«d the storm. My heart was heavy when I thought she might marrv him." Just then Jean turned towards them, “There’s loads of chicken May I bring you some?" She came bearing a heaped-up platter. “How do you like your waitress”” she demanded. "She’s too good to be true." John Leonard told her, “we have a feeling that you’ll vanish suddenly, and never come back ” "I shall always come back,” she said with earnestness. “Perhaps I shall never go away.” It was at sunset that the children danced on the bpaeh—the water was rosy with reflected light from the west, and the little folk in their sheer garments of green and am ethyst and gray seemed to belong to the sky and sea as they skimmed across the sands like birds on the wing, or raded the white-capped breakers singing in time to the triple beat. ‘Joan was in fluttering blue, her feet and arms bare—a beautiful creature. Her friends, watching her. marveled. “How can she be con tent among us here,” Evelyn said, "with Jter great loveliness and her great fortune?” "There are times,” said old John Leonard, "when money and beauty 4© not feed a hungry heart.” After the dance. Joan wandered away from the others. A curve in the beach brought her to a great sandbank and. sheltered from the west wind which blew cold as the night came on. she looked out over the sea. A single star hung in the sky. The world was at peace. She was soothed by that vast serenity of sky ane sea. She feit that it was good to be here after months of restless seeking. A year •go Aunt Adelaide had lived out her discontented days. And now she was at rest. A year ago they had been •t Granitehead. and one morning she had walked into the dim book •hop, and had met Giles Armiger. She wondered where he was to night. She wished that he were here, that she might talk to him quietly on the sands. He was her friend —her more than friend? She did not know. She only knew that she wanted him beside her, to tell him the things which had happened •ince she ha<[ . seen him in Paris. She wanted to tell him that she would never marry Drew. That she did not love him. That the last flicker of his fascination for her had died when he had showed her the 46rk pages of his life’s story. Well, perhaps some day Giles Would come to her. If he did not. what then? The winter was close at Med, and she must be making UN °FIRST METHODIST Rev. A. ;S.

PRIVATE FUNDS FOR FOREST FIRE WORK In the »>r Walter Hotel. Daily Dlipatch Ont-ena BT J. C. BASK EH VI 1,1, Raleigh, August 11—Funds have been put up by private landowners for cooperation in th eprevention of for est fires on more than a third of a million acres of woodlands in North ' Carolina this year, 91,000 acres more than were under protection in coopera tive associations last year, W. C. Mc- Cormick, assistant State forester in charge of fire control for the Depart ment of Conservation and Develop ment, announced today. The acreage under cooperative fire protection by special arrangement with the conservation department has reached 336,000 acres t odate, Mr. Mc- Cormick said. If sufficient funds are available ,a sufficient area will be brought under protection to bring the, 1 | or ease over last year to 100,000 acres. plans ror it. What plans? Should she shut herself up with Penelope ih the snug house on the bluff? Should she hold these simple friends close to her heart and think them sufficient? Or should she go back to Baltimore, and. opening the great mansion, carry on the traditions of hospitality which belonged to it? * * * Giles was back in Granitehead. He had left Scripps and Amelie ra diant in their new life. Yet his island as he entered jt had not seemed lonely. He liked its solitude. He felt he could live there happily with his thoughts of Joan. Since he had known she was not to marry Drew, he had been released from the horror which had hung over him. He was like a man who. sentenced to death, is reprieved at the last moment He spent the days in hi? book shop. In August there were many people from the hotel who welcomed him hack, and who were glad to buy at high prices the rare and lovely books he had brought from over seas. But there were books he did not show them—books which he ha«! bought for the library which was some day to be Joan’s. It was, he had decided, to contain a marvelous collection of the great romances of the ages. He began with an ex quisite Abelard and Heloise, rebound in violet leather, hand-tooled—“I flattered myself.” wrote Abelard, “that when 1 should * see you no more you would rest in my memory without troubling my mind; that Br'ttany and the sea would suggest other thoughts; that mv fasts and studies would delete you frorp my heart. But in spite of severe fasts and redoubled studies, in spite of the distance of 300 miles which separates us. your image, as you describe yourself in your veil, appears to me and confounds all my resolutions.” So Giles wished that he might write to Joan! Some day. perhaps, when,the two years were over! And in the meantime, here was an old Dante, shabby but priceless, to set beside the Abelard. Here. too. were Swift and bis Stelli* . . . were there no romances without tragedy, with out sin and sordidness, pain, despair? For stripped of the glamor which the years had cast over them, what of these lovers? Thinking the world well lost —for what? Love? Oh, not love as be and Joan would know’ it. On the shelves these old romances would glow with their mad passions—but he and Joan—tender ness and truth, firelight on chil dren’s faces . . . constancy, devotion; yes, and a touch too, of rhe madness in those old books . . . Oh, he wanted to be w’ith her . . . to hear her voie% ... to touch her hand. Yet--to see her now, would be to show hjs heart, and Drew had his word of- hottorL .<■ So back to bis books again . . . to his quiet evenings on the island; to Dilly now and then for supper and a chat afterwards while William tended the light. * v Dilly was franxly curious about Joan: “You’re still in love w’ith her Giles?” “Os course." “And she isn’t going to marry Drew Hallam?” “No.” (Copyright 1934, &V Central Press) I What’s Doiiw^Chufcki 1! : .

Giles, facing the w-inter. found himself suddenly restless. After a!!, why should he not travel? Bridge the months between his meeting, with Joan with adventure? If he stayed on his Island he would have for company only Jose and Margarida, and now and then Dilly and her Wil liam. or the young doctor and hie wife. ' Yet—what did he need of company, when he had his dreams of Joan? He would read and write and go back and forth to his shop. So day after day he was busy among his books. Night after night he sat by his glowing fire, seeing in its visions of the future. Dillv scolded him. “It’s no life for a man. Wbat are you thinking of, Giles? ’ 1 “What would you have me do?” ' "Oh. wake up! There is all the world before you—you’re too young to stagnate.” “Perhaps.” he told her. “I am—hibernating! ” Dilly was getting supper.

Small Susan In bjue rompers, crooned a song to old Peter, who sat beside her on the kitchen floor. Old Peter was happy with the lighthouse family. In summer he had found companionship with Dilly’s hens. And in winter he sought the warmth of the snug little house, and was adored by Susan. “It’s no way for a man to live,* scolded Dilly, as she split the browned hot biscuits and laid them on a big blue platter, alone. “Haven*! you any ambition, Giles?” “For what?” Dilly turned and looked at him, “To get on in the world." “What do you getting e»T** “Making a success of yourself." “I am a success.” confidently, **l have money enough, so why earn more?
