WINTER CRUISE

eat, not to chatter. When they had finished he went up to the doctor and wrung his hand.
" Something has happened, Doctor."
" It has happened. She's a changed woman."
" But will it last?"
" One can only hope for the best."
Miss Reid put on an evening dress for the evening's celebration, a very quiet black dress, with artificial roses at her bosom and a long string of imitation jade round her neck. The lights were dimmed and the candles on the Christmas tree were lit. It felt a little like being in church. The junior officers were supping in the saloon that evening and they looked very smart in their white uniforms. Champagne was served at the company's expense and after supper they had a Maibowle. They pulled crackers. They sang songs to the gramophone, Deutschland, Deutschland fiber Alles, Alt Heidelberg and Auld Lang Syne. They shouted out the tunes lustily, the captain's voice rising loud above the others, and Miss Reid joining in with a pleasing contralto. The doctor noticed that Miss Reid's eyes from time to time rested on the radio-operator, and in them he read an expression of some bewilderment.
" He's a good-looking fellow, isn't he?" said the doctor.
Miss Reid turned round and looked at the doctor coolly.
" Who ?"
" The radio-operator. I thought you were looking at him."
" Which is he?"
" The duplicity of women," the doctor muttered, but with a smile he answered: "He's sitting next to the chief engineer."
" Oh, of course, I recognise him now. You know, I never think it matters what a man looks like. I'm so much more interested in a man's brains than in his looks."
" Ah," said the doctor.
They all got a little tight, including Miss Reid, but she did not lose her dignity and when she bade them good-night it was in her best manner.
