But Hazel wiped some tears away
now as she looked down at llulbcrt's
sweet-scented roses. They had tak
en her back so acutely to the summer
and Cleave farm. Just such red
roses grew on the walls of the old
farm and poked their, scented heads
in af the window of the little room
where she had slept for so many
"All serene?" Delia demanded at
the door. She twisted and turned
for Hazel's inspection. She was wear
ins a wonderful garment of shot
green and gold, with a filet of the
same colors in her hair.
'Is this skirt too long, do you
think?" she queried anxiously.
Hazel thought it was not long
enough, but she did not like to say
"You look lovely, she said.
Delia beamed. "And you don't
look half so bad." she answered con
descendingly. "Whoever would have

But Hazel merely looked terribly
nervous when the odor opened, and
Hulbert was announced; she shook
hands with him and tried to thank
him for the roses, but he cut her
short. "Pooh! That's nothing! Glad
you're wearing them; I'll send you
some more tomorrow." He held her
hand rather unnecessarily long: when
presently they went down to his car
he rather pointedly addressed his
conversation to her.
Delia did not mind; she had a lit

she sat silent in the corner of Hul-bert's-

hopes soared. high; after all, it was
entirely due to her that Hulbert and
Greaves had ever met Hazel; it would
be worth their while to stump up.
Delia knew her own limitations.
She knew that nothing very alluring
in the way of fame lay in -wait, for
her; therefore, she was determined
to make hay while the sun shone in
anv other direction.
Hazel had told her nothing of Bar
ry's last visit, she imagined that he
was still in blissful ignorance of the
tact that she had let him down so
badlv: if he ever found out sue

week had been no good to her. and
that he ought o have known it.
When the car stopped she slipped
a friendly hand through Hazel's arm.
She said she waj dying of hunger;

"We're meeting him inside," Hul
An attentive waiter conducted
them to a reserved table. Hazel look

had never seen such a room in all
her life; the many lights and the
masses of flowers awed her. She
stood quite still till Delia touched

She obeyed rather helplessly; she
found herself next to Hulbert, with
an empty chair on the other side.
Delia was drawing off her gloves
and chattering away about the suo

"Good evening!" said a voice.
Hazel looked up, startled, to find
Norman Wicklow besi.'e her.
The color rushed to her cheekt;
she could find no words. He took
the empty chair beside her.
Telia hailed him rapturously.
"Were have you been hiding all
this time?" she asked. She leaned
her elbows on the table and looked
at him with bright eyes. "And how's
the ankle? We heard all about it."
"It's nearly well," Norman answer
ed. He looked rather agitated. The
sight of Hazel had set his pulses
racing, and brought back his loss to
him with a fresh sense of desolation.
"What are you doing here?" he
"We're wafting for Jimmy
Greaves," Delia told him. "He's go
ing to give Hazel a show in the
autumn, you know."
"Hazel!" Norman looked at her
and quickly away again. "Hazel

"There's nothing settled," she told
him quickly. "And I don't suppose
I shall be any good at all."
"I should like to back my opinion

A tall man with grey hair was
coming down the room towards
them. He had a cherry, smiling face,
and small, very shrewd eyes. He
shook hands with Hazel and Delia,
and clapped Hulbert on the back.

rose to his feet again. "I suppose

pleasantly. "But they won't be an

Norman went away and Greaves
sat down. He talked to Hazel a
gteat deal. He a:kM her a hundred

to i:ring her along to his office in

asked. "Well, we'll try I"

did not notice that as soon as her
glass began to get empty he filled it
up again. She felt very happy and
excited. When. Debi took out her
cigaret case and begi.i to smoke,
riazel declared that she would smoke
She wished that Barry could walk
in and see her; he would realize then
that he was not the only man who
had ever paid her attention.
Greaves had drawn his chair closer
to hers; he was leaning over the
corner of the table talking to her
When, after the first puff or two,
she let her cigaret go out, he insisted
that she relight it from his.
"I like to see a pretty woman
smoke," he told her. "You've no
idea how charming you look."
It was all so different to what
Barry had said. Hazel, remembered
what a rage he had been in and how
he had torn the cigaret case from
The excitement fell from her; she
sat silent, staring down the long
room. She felt cold and miserable
all at once; she looked at Greaves
and shivered; there was something
about him that she did not like, after
all, she thought, timidly. She looked
at Delia a very flushed and noisy

But Delia paid no attention; she
was telling Hulbert something in a
whisper and screaming with laughter.
"You don't want to go home,"
Greaves answered soothingly. "Why,
we've only just begun the night."
But Hazel was not listening, she
was looking past him down the long
The door had just opened to ad
mit some fresh comers. Greaves
swung round in his chair to see who
it was that was claiming--Hazel's at
teion. A woman in evening dress was
walking up the room between the
tables, closely followed by a man.
The woman was Agnes Dudley
Greaves know her by sight; he had
often seen her about with Barry
Wicklow and tiie man; he glanced
at the man's big, rather lumbering
figure and careless face it was Bar
Barry thought he had planned out
his evening to a nicety. After leav
ing his wife he sought out Greaves;
he guessed that Greaves' would know
where Hulbert was taking Hazel thr
night, and he had not been wrong.
A diplomatic invitation to the man
ager to have dinner with him had
drawn the required information.
"Should have been delighted,"
Greaves told Barry unsuspectingly.
"But the fact it I've promised Hul
bert to meet him. He's got some
new little girl in tow, and he's very
anxious for me to give her a trial
run this autumn."
"Ah, yes!" Barry's voice was even
and disinterested. "He told me some
thing about it. Where are you din
ing?" Greaves told him unsuspectingly;
he added that he didn't suppose any
thing would come of it, but that Hulbert-was
a great friend of his.
"Anyway, Hulbert thinks she's
boynd to be a success," Barry told
him, calmly. "She's pretty enough."
Greaves raised his brows. "Oh,
you know her, then?"
There was the faintest possible
pause before Barry answered. "Yes
I've met her." He smiled grimly
at his own reply, recalling those da;ys
down at Cleave Farm.
He went away from Greaves, sav
age and smarting with jealousy. He
was determined to turn up at the;
restaurant to meet Hazel. It was!
