"Strangled!" she repeated, f hat explained the Wild shriek she had heard before the fall, the shrill terrorizing cry which had weakened to an agonized gasp as the rope choked off her breath. "1 can't believe it!" Cilly murmured. "I simply can't believe that anybody would want poor Amy Kerr out of the way. It's too terrible!" "Now you see," Dolan went on, "why we're trying to check up on her past, on her friends and acquaintances. We need just one little clew to put us on the right track." * * * As if in response to their thoughts, the telephone on the desk jangled. Cilly answered it. "Western Union calling," she repeated, aside to Sergeant Dolan. Then, into the phone: "What? Oh, she must be! . . . Are you quite sure? Wait, wait just a moment. . . ." "It's Western Union," she said again. "The message has not been delivered. They say there is no Miss Harriet Kerr in Interlaken." "What's that?" Sergeant Dolan demanded sharply. "Here, let me take it." He took the phone from Cilly's trembling hand. "Hello!" he said authoritatively. "Can you give me your Interlaken operator on this line direct?" To Gilly he mumbled: "Small town. The operators know everybody. They can tell us where to find Aunt Harriet. . . . Hello—Interlaken? New York police calling. Sent a message to Miss Harriet Kerr last night. Isn't she at Interlaken? .Where? .What's that you say?" * * * T-TE replaced the phone on its x hook and turned to Cilly. "Well, that's a hot one," he said. "What is it?" "There was a Miss Harriet Kerr in Interlaken, but she died four years ago." Cilly's eyes widened. "You mean—there isn't any Aunt Harriet?" "Evidently n6t. And Miss Amy's been giving you a cock-and-bull story about her relatives. Now why, I ask you, why did she have to do that?" "I don't know," Cilly said wearily. "I'm sure I don't know. The whole thing gets more impossible every minute. Whatever will I do now? There aren't any other relatives, I'm sure.' Amy never 'mentioned a soul except her Aunt Harriet.'• »SK "That's a funny one, all right. If 'she spoke so much about'- her aunt, why didn't she tell you that she was dead. Where's she been keeping herself for the past foUr years, eh? GuesS I'll have to do a little checking up in New Hampshire." Dolan made some more notes in the little black book. "Now about these young men who were visiting you last night," he proceeded.* "What can you tell me about them?" "I can tell you about Mr. Kerrigan, because I know him very well. The other young man— Amy's friend—I met for the first time last evening," "Was Amy in love with him?" "Oh, I don't think so!" Cilly answered quickly. She was not going to besmirch Amy's memory by letting the police think she was the victim of a one-sided love affair. And Harry Hutchins, with half an eye on Gloria Harmon and her father's chain stores, would certainly not admit being in love with Amy. "How long had she known him? Where did she meet him?" "She knew him before I met her. I understood that Amy met him quite informally on a train, in the dining car. They were both coming to New York and so they just naturally grew to be friends." "Hutchins from out of town too?" "No, 1 think he's lived in New York, on and off, for many years. He has a great many friends here." "What does he do for a living?" "He writes. Trade journal articles, I believe. On business management and economics." "What's the name of the paper he's with?" "He's not with any paper. He free lances." Sergeant Dolan's shrewd eyes narrowed. "And you don't like him." "I didn't say that at all." "Y(ju don't sound very enthusiastic about him." "Possibly I didn't like the way he played bridge," Cilly -offered. "But certainly I have no reason either to like or dislike him." "I see. Don't think he measured up to this friend of yours, Mr. Kerrigan, Is that it? What's his business?" "He's the New York representa* tive of a Chicago publication, 'The Mid-West Review.' He has a small office at 190 West 42nd." * * *• sergeant made a note of that. % ' "Have you gotten in touch wit! the young men yet?" he asked. -' "No, 1 haven't." Cilly hesitated. "Jim is out of town, I don't knov> exactly, where.'-He mentioned something about' it last night." "Why haven't you told Hutchins? Seems he'd be interested, don't you think?" Cilly nodded. "I meant to phon* him the first thing this morning, but Mrs. Corbett awakened me. And you arrived as soon as I'd finished dressing." Dolan reached for the phone* "I'll tell him. What's the number, do you know?" "Hepe it is." Cilly pointed to a tiny phone pad on the desk. "MarlbdPough Hotel. Endicott 5-0980." Sergeant Dolan dialed the number. "Hello. Maryborough? Let me talk to Mr. Hutchins, will you? Oh, say, wait a minute. Give me the desk first. Hello. This is the police, Sergeant Dolan talking. Special investigation. Can you tell me what time Hutchins got in last night—Harry Hutchins? What's that? . . . Wait a minute, let me get that number . . . Yeh. Thanks. All right, now connect me with him, will you?" Cilly waited while Sergeant' Dolan told Harry about Amy's tragic death. She noticed that he did not mention the fact of her being murdered. He did not ask Cilly if she wanted to speak to Harry. He finished speaking and replaced the phone. "Looks as if Hutchins is O.K.," he said. "Desk clerk didn't see him come in last night, natuj^lly —he was off duty—but them's a record of a phone call he made at 12:20. He must have gone right home if he left here at 11:30. Takes a good 40 minutes on the subway over to the Marlborough. You're sure it was 11:30 when they left?" Cilly nodded. "Exactly. By the banjo clock there." He looked in his black book again. "Twelve-twenty. That's just about the time Miss Kerr was killed, isn't it? Yep . . . 12:20." Cilly remembered that the little clock on the vanity said 12:20 when she had first gone to bed. And they always kept that clock a few minutes fast. (To Be Continued) Ozan Cotton Gins Busy These Days Total of 821 Bales Are Ginned—Farmers Are More Optimistic OZAN—(Special)—The two gins in Ozan have been busily humming the last week and perhaps they will be msier this week. The ideal weather s making the many bolls pop open ike the fluffy grains of pop corn, and he grasping hands of the pickers are jusily plucking it and dropping it into heir sacks. Saturday night the Cox Gin had iinned 460 bales and the Temple Gin 155—a total of 821 bales. Some time Saturday afternoon the Cox Gin broke lown, but repair work was hastened Monday morning, and the gin was soon in operation again. The price of cotton seed last week was very low and rather discouraging to the coloreu hands who had "to sell to pay," but the market opened Monday morning with a bit of encouragement. Monday, seed were selling for $20 a ton, an increase of four dollars over last week's price. Farmers in the community are somewhat more optomistic about the outcome of the crop than they were a few weeks ago when it looked as if the rains or bugs would destroy all hopes of a fair crop. Surprise Supper Thirty-five members of the Jolly Band of the St. Paul community showed their hearty appreciation of their young friend, Sloman Goodlett, Monday night, by loading their picnic baskets with lunches, principally hamburgers, and giving Sloman a surprise supper at his gin. The supper was given in appreciation of the splendid work that Sloman docs in the St. Paul community. A young man in his early twenties Sloman has been resuming the responsibilities of his mother's, Mrs. Kate Goodlett. farm for a number of years. After his father's death several years ago he became owner and operator of the Goodlett gin, a land mark in the St. Paul commmunity. For the past few years Sloman has served as superintendent of the St. Paul Sunday school. He has played a very active part in ^community activities, religious, moral, and social.
