MISS CORNELIUS

speaking to a comparatively young man, that you will live to be sorry for this day. You will know what it is to pray that your tongue might have withered at its roots rather than it should have said the things it has said to-night.'

`I may have been too abrupt,' said Saxon, as he walked back home with Clinton. `My wife tells me that I have no tact; but it struck me that the only thing to do was to cut quickly and deeply, and not waste time over the anaesthetic.'
`The fault is mine,' the other replied, `in having dragged you into it. Though I'm sorry for the Parkes, I'm almost more sorry for you. I think you did the right thing, and I don't mind telling you that it 's more than I could have done.'
Saxon found his wife sitting up for him. `Were the spooks genuine after all?' she said. `I'm longing to hear all about it.'
`I think I'd rather leave it over until to-morrow. It's not been exactly a pleasant evening, and I am afraid I have made one enemy for life-Miss Cornelius.'

He told her all about it next morning at breakfast.
`I don't know whom to pity most,' she said, `you or the poor old lady. I've always thought of her as one of those quiet, inoffensive old dears, that give the atmosphere to the drawing-rooms of South Coast boarding-establishments. Anyhow, I'm not going to have you worried about it. Why not get off to Flinton for a long week-end of golf? You were going to some time during the holidays, you know.'
Saxon hummed and hawed, and raked about half-heartedly for excuses, but she could see that the idea appealed to him, and by noon she had seen him off.
That was on a Friday afternoon. It was certainly very jolly down at Flinton. They were an usually congenial little parry at the Dormy House. MacAllister of Trinity was there with a young biochemist from King's, with whom he crossed swords
