CHAPTER SIXTEEN
IN WHICH CHARITY SUFFERETH LONG, AND
JOAN MISSES HER CUE

HUGHIE spent the next few months chiefly in wondering.
He wondered what Mr Haliburton's game might be. What was he doing behind Lance Gaymer ? That the latter might consider himself justified in poking his nose into his only sister's affairs was understandable enough -but why drag in Haliburton ? Was that picturesque ruffian a genuine friend of Lance's, enlisted in a brotherly endeavour to readjust Jimmy Marrable's exceedingly unsymmetrical disposition of his property ? or was he merely a member of that far-reaching and conspicuously able fraternity (known in sporting circles as " The Nuts"), to whom all mankind is fair game, and whose one article of faith is a trite proverb on the subject of a fool and his money, pursuing his ordinary avocation of -making a bit"? In other words, was Lance Gaymer pulling Haliburton, or was Halibutton pushing Lance Gaymer
