On the contrary a latent savagery in her own nature caused her to feel a carious Pride a deep sense of sym rally the perpendicular bars lessened their Speed until finally each exhibited the numeral 125 in a Black against the glaring White. Behind the girl the hurtling darkness fell away. The train shot out into a Pool of Light and came to rest with a Jerk that precipitated her through a newspaper and against a hostile breast. Doors sprang open with mechanical precision and with a sigh of Relief packed White and Black broke their enforced common imprisonment the negroes pouring out on the platform the Whites appropriating their places and regarding their retreating backs with resentment and Relief. On the platform the dark mass hesitated for a moment Drew deep breaths stretched 1 limbs then like a breaker that has found the Shore it lifted caught i amp a up on Quot its Crest hurled her before it up the stairway and deposited her breathless but triumphant on the pavement. Saturday afternoon her first thrilling week of study under Salinski behind Here his Rug Ini word of Praise singing in her ears.

She was Clad briefly in dark Blu. Tailored silk. The Colour was a c inversion to Mamba the Brevity to Harlem. A Scarf of Flamingo red was knotted loosely about her Throat and a Small Jaunty hat of the same Shade fitted closely about her head. Below the dress a rather astonishing length of Champagne silk stocking was evident and. Symbolic of her Complete emancipation these terminated in a pair of red High heeled pumps she carried a modish vanity Case and a Small umbrella in the accenting Colour was pendent from one Elbow. With that Power to evoke memory which contrast possesses to an even greater extent than a similarity the alien setting switched the girls thoughts Back to her last eventful night in Charleston she had been ii member of the Grayson family for ten Davs and with her faculty for expelling from her mind ail that caused her discomfort the tragedy of a Luton a death and her hurried de parture were already As completely dissociate i from her life As a printed Story in a Book that has been replaced upon its shelf.

Then in the moment of parting had come the Climax when the big inarticulate woman had kissed her hand and she had found herself in her arms. Her reason told her that Here was a specific act for.
