A timely reminder
The tag end of summer warns that
treacherous days of winter are on the way.
Do you remember the old day*? Old-fashioned
methods of heating... children wore heavy under-
wear and long stockings in order to keep warm...
members of the family "huddled" in one or two rooms
during cold weather... mother went shivering about
the house with a shawl around her
shoulders ... someone was always
"catching cold" — Remember?
There is a direct relationship between
your family's health during winter
months and the way you heat your home.
Sudden changes of temperature during the treacherous
months of cold weather are dangerous. If you follow
the old.fashioned practice of "huddling" in one or
two rooms while the rest of the house remains un>
heated —YOU ARE TAKING CHANCES WITH
YOUR FAMILY'S HEALTH. Plan now
to have adequate heat and healthful
temperatures in every room in the home
this winter. It's the modern way to fight
the "common cold."

Isobel gave her low laugh. "This

the standard of futility of this poor
groping quartet of incompetents.
They're quite wonderful. Flashes of
false insniration, gleams of ani-
mal cunning, dashes of wit and a
/narked talent for acting, all wal-
lowing in a sort of hopeless bog of
indecision . . like a fever dream."
Sandy looked at her helplessly.
"Explain it, please. My poor brain
s fogged too . . . like a camera film
fmproperly sealed for the tropics.

about? Why does Vinckers try to

nack this evening, as Hester says.
.They had planned to leave by her
.mmediately. But Vinckers thought
hat you and I were apt to interfere.
So vinckers had tho bright idea to

made any objections to their leav-
ing, to lock us both up somewhere,
in the storehouse probably. But now

to send them across."
Sandy let out his breath. "Oh,
so that's it. Well I'll be hanged."
Isobel laughed again, but it was
a sort of pitying laugh. "You had
all better go to bed, and tomorrow
we shall decide what's best to be
done. I don't know who and what
,you really are, but one thing Is cer-
tain and that is that you are very

• hat as it had slowly risen under
l.wbel's scornful exposition of them,
all needed to bring it to the point
if some desperate act was Sandy's
final withering contempt.
At last, Sandy now perceived,
Vinckers had become really dan-
gerous. His features were not
learly visible through the murk,
out there was a quality in the thick
labored «peech that told of fury
'.-hocking it. Here was none of the
explosive temper of the I-^Jin but
the dogged stupid desperation of
the Teuton whose brain action is
turgid with blood, blinded to con-
sequences by a sort of hatred at the
Isobel realized their error even
quicker than did Sandy. Her swift
glance from Hester's to Flavia's
face told that these two women who
knew Vinckers best were terrified.
Even Jarvis had straightened sud-
denly from his slump. He was rigid,
his lean body stiffly erect, like that
of a cobra. It was as if all three of
them were held tensely, listening
for the crack of the rifle, before
Sandy had time to obey the order
given him by Vinckers.
Isobel rose swiftly and before
Vinckers seemed to realize her in-
tention she stepped between him
and Sandy, still sitting. "Think
twice, Vinckers," she said softly.
Placed as he was, Vinckers could
not thrust her aside. Jarvis made
no effort to do so. Sandy sprang
to his feet.
"Vinckers, you fool . . . what's
this going to get you?"
"You, Vinckers said thickly.
"Look out, Isobel . . ."
But Isobel crowded against the
muzzle of the rifle. "He is going to
do what you say. Steady, Vinck.
Don't lose your head."
"Time for you to talk," Vinckers
muttered. "Let him start, then."
Hester had found her voice. "Oh,
what's the hurry?" she said in her
slow drawl. "Time enough when
the boat is sighted ... if ever it is.
Don't be a fool, Vinck."
The weight of opposition seemed
to have its effect. Vinckers, breath-
ing heavily, lowered the rifle and
resting it against the edge of the
terrace gripped the rounded sup-
port. His body semed to sag down
a little, so that his face peered be-
tween the columns in a manner
curiously suggestive of an ape in
"You had better see Uncle before
you decide on anything," Isobel said.
''He's not so very far away. I don't
know what your hold on him may
be, but it ought to be as much use
to you as ever."
Jarvis suddenly came to life.
"That's played out," he said, and
went on in a crackling voice in a
singular contrast to tho one he pre-
viously affected. "We can't get the
Rajah on that fuss he got into out
in Siam before the war. He could
square himself out there for less
than half we're askin', and what's
more, I'll bet he has. That's what
ha went out there for this last trip."
"What did he do?" Isobel asked,
Jarvis laughed cacklingly. "Lor*,
what didn't he? There and all over
the shop. Some life he's had, the
ol' Rajah. Until the war his stuff
was Asia's chronic complaint. He
was like Pandora's box of troubles
with the lid off, or maybe more like
smoke in the hold with the ship
off soundings and the old man not
daring to lift a hatch to lead in a
hose. For years and years any one
of his least jobs would make the
modern Master Mind, as the ink-
slingers call 'em, look like a hobo
swiping pies set out to cool."
"What sort of jobs?" Isobel mur-
Jarvis did not seem to have heard
her. "The grand old bloke has
softened up. Religion fastens on his
kind like ivy on a wall when it
starts to crumble ... or mistletoe
on the branches of a sick tree. It's
your genius gets like that... if he
lives too long. He had a lot else, tno.
He had a way with him, the Rajah.
Like a satrap. Not one of his field
workers was ever known to welsh
on him. He knew who could be
trusted and how far, and he took
care of hi| crowcL no nsattex whaj,

there were no double crossers in the;
Rajahs ledger. Rum, I call it, to'
see a man like that go punk, like,'
an old pirate ship. Too bad . .
Hester spoke in her soft, accented
voice. "It's only that he has a dif-
ferent slant on things. Religion
isn't soft . . . whatever kind he's
"Maybe he invented it," Jarvisi
said. "That would be like him, too.f
What's the odds? It suits him nowf
to be grand and kind ... just as he'
used to bo grand and terrible . . j
the grandest old pirate that ever)
scuttled a junk with all aboard."
"The war did something to him,"
Hester said. She and Jarvis seemed,
suddenly to have burst into talk.!
Isobel guessed this to bo for the dis- j
traction of Vinckers who still clung!
half-standing, half-sagging to the
balcony posts, peering through
a curious animal way.
"Right-o," Jarvis agreed. "Be-1
fore that you'd as soon have thought j
of tying a tin can on the tail of a/
royal Bengal tiger as of tying a'
blackmail on the Rajah."
"And now he's tremendously re-!
spec table,' Hester said, smiling.'
"Like Sir Henry Morgan when they!
made him Governor of Jamaica."
There was a. pause.. Vincjcersr
seemed to slide still lower, then toj
recover himself with a sort of lurch.:
and to straighten up. "The Rajah,"'
he said in his normal voice, "has;
gone to pot. Punk softened, andi
nothing left but a shell of bluff. He'
knows it, and that's why he did hitj

Vinckers laughed 'Think so7)

He was interrupted by a scream
from Flavia. She was staring!
through the wide opened doors.

The long two-storied building'
that suggested the residence of a

entrance on the side of the lagoon
