ENTRY No.  I

Miss Harding Is coming

“Heard the news?” demanded Chilvers, approaching the table where
Marshall, Boyd, and I were smoking on the broad veranda of the Woodvale
Golf and Country Club.  We shook our heads with contented indifference. 
It was after luncheon, and the cigars were excellent.

“Where’s LaHume?” grinned Chilvers.  “Where’s our Percy?  He must hear this.”

“LaHume and Miss Lawrence are out playing,” languidly answered Marshall.  “What’s happened?  Don’t prolong this suspense.”

Miss Ross and Miss Dangerfield turned the corner and Chilvers saw them.  Chilvers is married, but has lost none of his effervescence and consequently retains his popularity.

“Come here,” he called, motioning to these two charming young ladies.  “I’ve got something for you!  Great news; great news!”

“What is it?” asked Miss Ross, her deep-brown eyes brightening with curiosity.

“Another heiress coming!” announced Chilvers, with the bow of a jeweller displaying some rare gem “—­another heiress on her way to Woodvale!  This is going to be a hard season for such perennial bachelors as Smith, Boyd, Carter, and others I could name.  You girls will have your work cut out when this new heiress unpacks her trunks and sets fluttering the hearts of these steel-plated golfers.”
