Monday night Mary had a telephone call from Dirk, He hud" just -received her letter, he said. "Did you want to see me?" he asked formally. - "Why, yes," Mary replied. "Don't • you—want to see me?" There was a sho,rt wait before he answered, "Of course. Shalt'I come over?" He was setting a distance between them but then It was he whose feelings had bSen Injured. They/would talk It oVer and It .Would be all right. Mary dressed without any particular enthusiasm. Dirk was doming now but tomorrow she Would be gone. It wad a rather hollow sort of happiness she" felt, but it was better, than not seeing'Dirk at all. When he came, he sat down be- sldei her casually, but made no move to touch her. Mary felt the-ldast bit rebuffed., He- looked worried and strained, - and her heart went out - to-, him. "I'm sorry, I left you like th'at," she said gently. "I know," he said. "That's all right." >Anotheir slfence fell. "I had to know about those ringer- prints. Whether they were Tfi* Fly's, she explained. ''I couldn't wait. Haven't you ever felt that way?" ' , .•'.--. He' shrugged. "I 'suppose you were anxious, of course," h« said. "What did you find out?" "They were his. The Bertlllon men at police headquarters checked them." -Dirk" cleared his throat. "You' understand, don't you, that 1 the gun'S being his doesn't prove conclusively that it waj The Ply who fired it? It was the murder gun, of course; I've had It in the hands of ballistic experts, and there's no doubt about that part But—I don't mean to hurt your feelings again— but how can you prove to a jury that 16 was The Fly, who was' the murderer, rather than—than someone else?" ./ "We can't. We're not even try- Ing to. The Fly himself will do that for uS." "If you're lucky." "If we're lucky. And If we play our cards just right. But fho least Blip, the least Word—and it's all spoiled. It's possible that's happened already. You aren't very popular with George Bowen just now. The Fly's left town, you know;" Dirk looked at her In bewilderment. "I'm not popular? What've I to do with It?" • ' "Didn't you go back to Shay's with a warrant for him?" was la 1 no mood to anything tfirk might gay against the alftent'BOWen. she Wns too mystified— too busy speculating. "Who do you think it could haV6 been?" she asked. "He's probably got a doaen rackets," Dirk replied. "The cops might be after him for any one^ot them. Or it might bo for some fool thing like parking overtime. He ran, like they. all do. They don't-liM.A pinch; even for a minor offense— It's bad for their rackets." Considerable wind had been taken out of Mary's sails by this discovery but she was none the less regretful that it had taken. place. The : Fly was gone and what assurance had she that she could find him again? Nothing but Bbwen's guess— and Bowen could, ba wrong, as this slip-up showed. For a moment she felt panicky — she was committed to so much, just on the strength Of that chance; that The Fly would show up at the track when his horse ran her big race. If he were really frightened he might stay away. Although he would probably feel himself safe enough. Unless the offense were a serious one, extradition from Florida would be more than the New York police would trouble with. The idea that the Fly's arrest had been sought by Inspector Kane occurred to her but was instantly dismissed. In her last interview with him he had been so emphatically disinterested in following up the case, that such a decided change in his point of tlew seemed unlikely. Kane had been "bought off," and he would stay that way, she was sure. He was the sort of bootlicker to do just, that. Well, slie Was sailing in the morri> ing, probably on a Wild-gooso titias^r but she couldn't back out now. How- would she feel, though, once she had spread, this elaborate "Web she was spinning, and seated herself In the center of it with the gleaming. Jupiter rubies as bait, it The Fly failed to appear? She almost wished she had not embarked on such an insane adventute.- Much- better to remain safely. at honle' where wonfen belonged aBd hate ri0, thoughts of one's own— tlion one could 'riot .bo mistaken, and deservedly laughed at. Dirk put his hand oft Mers, r looked earnestly dnto her face. "WliX'iio't forget " W* he fogged, "I wish I could," she murmured unhappily:. "But— we've - made- so many plans— you've no idea what' preparations havo 1 been .made. There's even a dictagraph in his, cabin^-the cabin We're keeping f6r him—" • . Dirk jerked his hand away. •; "My God, you're not going t(f take that— that — animal on board? Associate with him? Why, he's—' scum! If he's no ; more .than a gigolo, he's not the sort you ought to be seen with! I'd trust him no more than ( I'd trust a snake. For all you know he may be a bank robber— a thief— an impostor of the worst order—" "A ' murderer," Mary supplied gently.
