SANATORIUM

should know that George Templeton was in love with Ivy Bishop. But it was not so easy to tell what her feelings were. It was plain that she liked his company, but she did not seek it, and indeed it looked as though she took pains not to be alone with him. One or two of the middle-aged ladies tried to trap her into some compromising admission, but ingenuous as she was, she was easily a match for them. She ignored their hints and met their straight questions with incredulous laughter. She succeeded in exasperating them.
" She can't be so stupid as not to see that he's mad about her." "She has no right to play with him like that."
" I believe she's just as much in love with him as he is with her."
" Dr. Lennox ought to tell her mother."
No one was more incensed than McLeod.
" Too ridiculous. After all, nothing can come of it. He's riddled with T.B. and she's not much better."

Ashenden, who saw most of them, knew them better than any of the others. Templeton at last had taken him into his confidence. He was rather amused at himself.
" Rum thing at my time of life, falling in love with a decent girl. Last thing I'd ever expected of myself. And it's no good denying it, I'm in it up to the neck; if I were a well man I'd ask her to marry me tomorrow. I never knew a girl could be a.s nice as that. I've always thought girls, decent girls, I mean, damned bores. But she isn't a bore, she's as clever as she carr stick. And pretty too. My God, what a skin!
