A CASUAL AFFAIR

some clandestine meeting-place they could give themselves to the fulfilment of their desire. They drank the milk of Paradise.
How frightful that the end of it all should have been so tragic!
" How did you know him?" I now asked Low.
" He was with Dexter and Farmilow. You know, the shipping people. He had quite a good job. He'd brought letters to the Governor and people like that. I was in Singapore at the time. I think I met him first at the Club. He was damned good at games and all that sort of thing. Played polo. He was a fine tennis player. You couldn't help liking him."
" Did he drink or what?"

I turned to Mrs. Low.
" Did you know him?"
" Only just. When Arthur and I were married we went to Perak. He was sweet, I remember that. He had the longest eyelashes I've ever seen on a man."
" He was out quite a long time without going home. Five years, I think. I don't want to use hackneyed phrases, but the fact is I can't say it in any other way, he'd won golden opinions. There were a certain number of fellows who'd been rather sick at his being shoved into a damned good job by influence, but they couldn't deny that he'd made good. We knew about his having been in the F.O. and all that, but he never put on any frills."
" I think what took me," Mrs. Low interrupted, "was that he was so tremendously alive. It bucked you up just to talk to him."
" He had a wonderful send-off when he sailed. I happened to have run up to Singapore for a couple of days and I went to the dinner at the Europe the night before. We all got rather tight. It was a grand lark. There was quite a crowd to see
