MR. GOBLE, with a derby hat on the back of his head and an unlighted cigar in the corner of his mouth, was superintending the erection of the first-act set when Jill found him. He was standing with his back to the safety curtain glowering at a blue canvas, supposed to represent one of those picturesque summer skies which you get at the best places on Long Island.

THE PARTS MEN PLAY

ONE noon-day in the November of 1918, a taxi-cab drew up at the Washington Inn, a hostelry erected in St. James’s Square for American officers.

THE honey smell of whin-bloom and the pine-apple scent of gorse blew faintly into John Magill’s thin face as he turned in at his new gate and faced up the steps to his new two-storey, clap-board house.
