A NEIGHBOURLY NOVEL
br ORACH S. RICHMOND
“Oh, Jo I” There was a big
armchair close beside the foot
stool, and he sat down upon it,
leaning forward so that he was
very near her, his head bent
over hers. If he had had her
in his arms then, she couldn’t
have more surely felt his pres
ence. “Jo, don’t put me off.
The time is flying. Let me
have your promise that you’ll
marry me when I come back.

Sunday, I didn’t let you know
that I saw you then at all. But
I did. I was conscious of you
every instant as you sat there
beside me. And when Alice
Ingram asked me in the aisle,
going out, where I was Hving,
I turned my head so that the
answer might come ovar my
shoulder to you. There—what

fires—those pure fires—are

That they were flaming she
had convincing evidence dur
ing the silence which followed
on these suddenly breathless
words. It would seem that the
fires must have been long kept
under rigid control, or they
could hardly have broken faith
so ardently. Yet they did not

knees before her—“let’s sa_v

all the nights of our lives.”
Perhaps it was a wordless
prayer. A passionate happi
ness had few words to speak.
Certainly none could have been
heard in the silent room, in
which the soft crackling of the
fire seemed only to intensify
the stillness. Gordon Mackay’s
face was pressed against Jo’s
breast, his arms were about
her, her head was bent on his.
His eyes were shut, the eyelids
tight together; her eyes were
open that she might see—at
such close range—the heavy
locks so near to her lips.

whether the ice fields north of

“I haven't been to the moon

gravity. “But there's no rea

Then he was at Frances’
side. .She looked up, and he
found his pulse was leaping at
her very nearness. How fragile
she was, and exquisite! Possi
bly it was that which thrilled
him so. So much of Jimmy
Brandon’s latter life had been
spent among things that were
anything but fragile and exqui
site, so much of it had been
hard and cruel.
A loose-draped green tea |
gown fell away from the mar- |
ble whiteness of her shoulders;
a slave braeelet, studded with
sapphires set in an ancient
scrollwork and clasped about
her upper arm, fascinated him.
He wondered if he could ever
buy her one like it.
“You’re not very attentive
—for a cavalier!”
At her careless, laughing
voice he raised his eyes to meet
“I’m not a cavalier, Fran
ces,” he found himself reply
ing. “I’m taking something
seriously for the first time in
life. You’re it.”
He ran his fingers absently
through a sandy shock of hair.
There was something lovably
boyish and eternally youthful
about Jimmy, in spite of all he
had seen and known. The years
seemed never to have touched
him. About his eyes, when they'
were not grave and dubious,
there were little crinkles made
by his smile—a smile, someone
had said, which had carried
Jimmy through a score of rows
in dubious dives “below the
line” and the reception rooms
of kings and princes with the
“Serious—and I’m it,”
Frances repeated. “You've got

He shook his head. “I hope
not.” With a vague little ges

out to embrace the emptying
room and the fluttering, overly
well-mannered guests. “Fran

She frowned slightly; and
without following her gaze,
Jimmy knew that her eyes

“Sssh!” Lightly she touched

yet the touch seat a strange
pulsing through his being.
“You’re not rounding Cape
