A hint of a frown marred the.
smoothness of Joan's pretty forehead
as she held the telephone receiver
to her ear and listened to Anne's
excited voice as it came a bit shril-
ly over the wire.
“Darling, you'll have to consider
this a frantic SOS and come home
right away. I--I'd dash up and tell
you about it, but I'm packing.”
“Packing!” from Joan in sudden
consternation. “You mean unpack-
ing, don't you? You just came home
“I know it,” in a wail, “b—but
I'm going again.”
Undoubtedly the tears were very
near. Joan herself gave a sigh of |
despair. She had planned this visit
in Mrs. Martin's lovely home for
weeks and now she was called
away after two blissfully idle days,
days in which she had come to love
more than ever her mother's friend.
“You'll come, won't you, Joan?"'
For once Anne's voice was pleading
instead of commanding. Lovely, vol-'
atile Anne, who was forever tempt-
ing fate with merry, carefree eyes,
as innocently blue as the heavens,
with luscious lips—and running from
the consequences of her folly.
Joan's reply was gravely com-
“I'll come home, my dear. And
I wouldn't worry, Everything will
come out all right for you,” and
added to herself, as she replaced
the receiver, “You naughty little
Mrs. Martin expressed impatience
when Joan explained that she found
it necessary to cut short her de-'
lightful visit and return home.
Joan arrived just before noon on
the following day, and Anne, who
had undoubtedly been watching for
her, threw herself impetuously into’
her arms.
“Oh, Joanie, you will
won't you!" she cried, adding with
a relieved sigh: Whatever would
I do without you?" disue
For an instant Joan thought she
was going to say, “What, indeed?”
But instead she somewhat automa- |
cradled Anne against her |
slim shoulder and asked gent-
ly: “What's the trouble this time?”
Apne, with a dramatic flourish,
produced a telegram. ‘That,” she
answered cryptically.

Joan read it twice.
“Well, I'm still waiting for in-

Evidently Anne didn't hear her,
'for she said plaintively, with a far-
away look in her eyes: “I don't
want to—to slay him, darling. De-
stroy his faith in womanhood and
and all that, you know. He really is
a nice boy.”
At half past 3 Anne drove off
merrily and at a quarter-past 4 Lu-
netta brought the information to
Joan that a gentleman was waiting
in the library. She went down.
She drew a long breath and closed
the library door softly before she
lifted her eyes.

heart go out to him immediately.
“I'm Joan Burnett,” she told him

“Oh,” he said, his face lighting
up swiftly. “I—I'm awfully glad
to know you, Joan, er--I beg your

She laughed and flushed. ‘Anne

man she'd never seen before!
He didn’t seem to notice, though.
He walked away to the windows
again and stood there a full minute
or two before he squared his shoul-
ders and came back to her.
“Miss Burnett,” he said gravely,
“I am not Lance Lanier. I'm his
friend. My name is Kirk Calhoun.”
Wiid-eyed, she surveyed him, and
under her gaze he flushed heavily.
“I don't understand,” she told him.
“The truth is that Lance ducked
at the last minute,” there was a
twinkle in his eyes. “Just as I im-
agine Anne did. Right?”
He sat down and emitted a sigh
of contentment. “All's well with the

Anne's piquant face flushed and
paled slightly before she broke into
a riot of laughter. “Atta boy!" she
gasped at last. “Oh, my gracious,

“Who was Lance's friend?" she
asked finally when her mirth had

as if she liked the sound of it, “his

intensity. “Kirk Calhoun!” she

ed away on business. So it's the
fireside for me.”
Suspicion darkened Joan's eyes
and made her heart falter a little,
but when Kirk gallantly suggested
that Anne go along with them there
was nothing to do but acquiesce.
One morning as she worked mad-
ly through an unusually large batch
of mail, Anne told her that Kirk
had phoned and asked them to go to
a club dance in town that night,
adding placidly:
“I told him, of course, we'd love
to.” And then before Joan could
protest, she went on: “I want you
to have my rose taffeta, Joan. The
one with the silver girdle. It is a
trifie long for me and all you'll need
do to it is fix the shoulder straps.”
Joan's face flushed with pleasure.
“Oh, Anne, are you sure yocu-—you
want me to have it?”
“But, of course,” laughed Anne.
So Joan bent to her task with re-
doubled energy. She di¢ not even

her a long speech to “polish off and
type for me, my dear,” in the after-
noon. It was rather a terrible
mess, too, as Mrs. Burnett's club
talks vrere likely to be, and Joan
worked on it all the afternoon.
She was not ready when Kirk ar-
rived and Anne came flying up to
her room, bidding her hurry because
Kirk had an appointment to see a
man on his way into town.
Joan tried to hurry, but her fin-
gers were icy and unsteady and

colored frock. The third time Anne
ran up the stairs to tell her to “Oh,

the bed and sat down wearily.
“Run along with him, my dear,”
she said bitterly. “You'll not miss

suddenly, and with a very evident
flush of embarrassment, “ I wonder

“Yes,” she told him softly, “I am.”
Then, with a note of mischief,
“Where have you seen me?"
“Well, I—er-—I guess I've never

a minute or two and then turned his

said, “and f('ve seen your picture.”

she did it surprisingly well. But,

taken some snapshots one afternoon
of Aunt Constance's funny little
Irish terrier. But she hadn't known
that she'd been in the picture.
“Kirk's a whole hundred per cent,”
Lanier went on, his gaze once more
on the building across the street, an
‘odd frown creased between his brows.
“It's rather too bad that he's lost
all his money, isn't it?”
“Lost-—his money?” Joan's

Lanier nodded. “Yeah, smashed,”
briefly. “The Street, you know-—"
“Oh, how-—how dreadful for him!
I'm so sorry.’ There was an oddly
exhilarated thrill in her words. “But

She had no idea how lovely she
looked, nor how appealing, with her
face so compassionate, her sweetly

“It's not so easy, this starting
again, Miss Burnett,” he told her.
“One is liable to think-—oh, well, a
lot of rot. For instance, that one
has no friends. - A lot to that, too,” |
he went on. “One's money and
one's friends too often depart atthe
same time.” Lanier was
slowly as though weighing his words
well. “You can't imagine what a

if some of his friends would go to

“I'm going to him now,” he said
simply. “Will you go, too, Miss
“Oh, do you think---I could help?”
“Then, Tll go at once!”
As Joan was ushered into the pri-
vate offices of Calhoun & Calhoun,
she found herself thinking that it
certainly didn't look as though they
had Jost their money. The big,
dark-paneled rooms hung with mar-
.velous old paintings and tapestries

ture and unlimited wealth.

swiftly, with a lovely gesture of un-

“Oh, Kirk, I'm so-—so sorry-——"
And then she found that she couldn't
say more, because he
was holding her hands close in his
and was kissing them with swift

She bent over him and lay her
cheek against his shining blond

and bent his cheek to hers.
“Of course it doesn't, sweetheart,”
he agreed. “Just for a while,

She nodded
“I thought I could combat that
