Someone must be got rid of to make room for the cheap man tomorrow. He had hoped to catch somebody doing something that would have served as an excuse for instant dismissal, but there was now no hope of that happening. What was to be done? Still, the fellow was really not worth the money he was getting. Sevenpence an hour was an absurdly large wage for an old man like him.

He could imagine the number of daring devils from whose amorous advances even a hot-cake queen was not immune. "The recipe was absurdly simple: No discipline, no hot-cakes. And there were always a sufficient number of good fellows around to squelch anybody who tried to interfere with my efficiency. By the way, I observed how hungrily you were looking out the window this morning.

But was he any better off in his secret soul? Not a whit.

Not a young woman on the island but was envying Avice at that moment; for Jocelyn was absurdly young for three score, a good-looking man, one whose history was generally known here; as also were the exact figures of the fortune he had inherited from his father, and the social standing he could claim a standing, however, which that fortune would not have been large enough to procure unassisted by his reputation in his art.

They are really very fine, those eyes of his, and so is his mouth, and his forehead and his hair.

The problem now was to find two men who could take their places, and that was not so easily solved. A golden-haired, pink-cheeked, blue-eyed young fellow in dainty silk negligee, gray trousers, and russet leather belt, with a panama hat and absurdly small tan shoes, followed him outside. "If you're looking for men," he announced musically, "I'm open for engagements."
