CHAPTER X - A CRY IN THE NIGHT

had not even returned yet-much less changed. This would have been something unknown to him once upon a time ; but now it just fitted in with his other eccentric behaviour. Molly was almost distracted by his strange manner since she came home. There seemed to be no reason-no cause for it. She knew that although it was he who had suggested the trip, he was fretting a little over the absence of her mother ; but she knew also that her father was a man of much stronger character than to give in like this, unless there was something else very serious the matter. She wondered if he could be worried over money matters. This holiday of her mother must be a big expense, and she wondered how they had found the extra money to pay for it. Then she had been greatly puzzled by a typewritten slip of paper she had found on the floor under her father's desk in his den. " For the Holiday Fund," it said : Could he have taken on the organising of something for the Navy men he was so interested in ? If so, had something gone wrong ? She had been so anxious at the time that she had put the slip of paper carefully away in a drawer, intending, later, to ask him what it meant.
Just as she was beginning to despair of his getting back in time, the telephone rang. It was her father who spoke.
" That you, Dad," she cried thankfully. . . . The voice seemed very strange.
" Didn't you hear me say so ?" came the testy reply. " I cannot get back for Durkheim's dinner to-night. You must go alone. Explain to him that I'm detained at the office."
" But, Father-", she began.
" Don't argue, for Heaven's sake," came the Impatient answer. " Go and explain why I cannot be there." The voice seemed to falter all at once.
" When will you get back ?" she asked anxiously.
