For that moment she stood, iso- *ted by shock, torn by a pang Of affection she had never before tnown she felt for the formally lind, but painfully repressed woman she remembered as Cousin Ernrna, but had never reully known. Oil, Cousin Emma! she thought. f don't believe you were ever very happy. ... I might have been much nicer to you. When she came back to her surroundings, the inspector wa.s asking the doorman, "Have you no- ticud anything unusual 'around here in the last two hours?" "Well"—the doorman hesitated —"about half after 11 I did see this young lady"—regretfully he indiealed Christine—"come along and stop right here; then her boy friend comes running up those stairs from the beach, and they hurry off together. . . . But first, she takes him under the Twentieth Century lights and—kind of looks him over." Christine flinched as she thought of that moment while she and lii stood there, lunching and talking —with.Cousin Emma perhaps already lying there—like that—a few feet nw:»y. "Looks him over?" the inspector snapped. "What do you mean?" "1 know what lie means," the waitress stopped snapping her gum long enough to put in. "I seen them, too; and he was dripping wet." Why, Christine remembered with an unpleasant start, Bill had been wet. ... He had said— "Say—lookit!" The newsboy, who had been staring at Bill, pointed a grimy forefinger. "T see him before all right. I sold all my tomorrow morning's papers by 10:30; and I was out along the Boardwalk. And I seen him in a parked ear. He was leanin' oul, as if he was waitin' for something." The inspector turned to Bill. "What's your name?" he demanded. "William Yardley." "Oh, yes—run the riding school, don't you? . . . And you say you knew Mrs. Talbert?" "I did." The inspector took n small dark object from his pocket. "Recognize this?" he asked. "1 ought to," Bill said after a brief inspection, ".tt's my key holder." ^PHE inspector surveyed him for a moment; then he coolly reclaimed Ihc keys and said, "It was found on the beach near a rowboat that hadn't any business to be whore it was. That boat may have some connection with Mrs. Talbert's death." "I saw that boat. I had a little run-in with a fellow right about there earlier in the evening." "You'd better explain." "Nothing to explain." Bill looked as if he could have kicked himself for speaking. "I was doing my best to pin his ears back, but he showed more speed than I looked for." "Who wa.s this man?" "If you don't mind," Bill said pleasantly, "we won't go into that any further at present. . . . However, here he comes now. Perhaps her'II want to tell yuu all about it—but I don't think so." Two uniformed men pushed into the buoth, holding between them a disreputable object in rubber wading boots. Aside from the boots, he wore a soiled pair of flannel trousers, a lutlcred shirt, and a greasy hat. "Here's that beachcomber we found down by the boat, Inspector," one of the men said, "He made a break for it, and we had to chase him half way lo Key Wesl." Christine looked at the man with inleresl. She had seen several men in rubber boots, wading about in Ihc backwash of low tide that morning, poking with long .sticks in the sand—occasionally stooping to pick something up and examine it. When she had asked Mr. Wilmet if they were fishing, he had replied, "Well—in a way. They're beachcombers. Often they lind coins, and .sometimes even jewelry." Evidently Bill had not confined his ell'ui Is to the pinning back of ears. One of lhe man's eyes wa> almost closed. . . . Yi-t Christine looked at him in unbelieving recognition, and found him staring at her with a kind of dismayed pleading. The inspector glanced sharply from one to the other of them and demanded, "F.ver seen this man before, Miss?" Christine hesitated. . . . Oi course it couldn't be—yet it was In spite of his generally disreputable appearance, the man in boots was unmistakably Cousin Emma's irreproachable butler, Jaspar. . . She put out a hand to steady herself against the wall of the booth * # ;(: AT the point, where her hnnd •"• rested, the concrete was badly cracked. A fragment moved undei ler fingers. ... At least, she took t for a fragment of the wall until she realized-that it was smooth .o her touch—as satiny smooth as silver thai hnd just been polished. Afterwords, she remembered thinking that—neatly as it was Itted into the crevice between the blocks of concrete, no one could have hoped to hide a dagger there for long—even such a slender one. She heard herself saying in a small, thin voice, "I—think I've found something, Inspector." Then at sight of the stain on the blade, she cried out and flung the weapon clattering to lhe floor. A man gathered it up in a clean handkerchief, as tenderly as if it had been a new-born babe. "I'll look this over, Chief," ho said. "Although I doubt if then; are any finger-prints left." "There'll be mine," Christine said faintly. The inspector treated her to a brief, sardonic grin. "Why, so there will!" he agreed. "So it was just as easy as Dial. . . . Maybe you boys had better have another look around before this young lady finds the murderer under a piece of seaweed, with a signed confession under his arm neatly tied up in pink ribbon." He swung from his subordinates lo (he others. "I think," ho shot at them, "that we'll run over to my office to finish this session—you and you and you and you, I mean." IIu indicated Christine, Bill, Mr. Wilmet, and the disreputable object who couldn't believably be Cousin Kmma's immaculate Jaspar, and yet who was. "The rest of. you leave your addresses." "Do you mean," Bill asked, as the dismissed witnesses straggled disappointedly away, "that we're under arrest?" "Nut yet. When I arrest people for murder," the inspector said dryly, "they stay arrested." He looked jt, Christine thought, examining him for the first time. He was an erect man of early middle age, with a direct, noncommittal blue ga/.e, and a q ietly incisive voice. lie had the appearance of one who might be impersonally fair so long us he knew that you were honest with him, but implacable to any whom he suspected of lying. And already she had deceived him by her tacit acquiescence to lhe name by which Mr. Wilmet had introduced her. It was going lo be difficult to explain that under those uncompromising eyes. I mu.Ml tell him who I really am at once, Christine thought. Perhaps I can talk to him alone. But talking to Inspector Parson? alone did not prove to be easy.

The brawling turbulent, sudden-®—•- —-— •-death mileu of the toughest, roughest ; , . ,, ., ... , , , shooter was the town in the cattle country of the! 1870's is the background against which ' ! "'&» ncnl!i ' TO) Flynn projects his virile, adventurous personality in 'DodgeCity," the Warner Bros. Technicolor production which starts Tuesday al the Rialto theater. Dealing with the most turbulent era of the old west. it. is a production of a scope and authenticily that may well make il remembered as a mile- lone in motion picture history. Making Ihe unmistakably British Errol Flynn its hero may .seem a novelty lo the casual film-goer but il will require no stretching of credibility on the part of those who arc- steeped in the history of the period and the region which are cove-red in "Dodge Cily" For there were a number of adventurous young Britons who became well-known figures in the pioneer days of the west and its easy lo believe thai such a fellow as Flynn is in aclualily could well have been one of them. With this blessing of historical au- asthenticily, Flynn makes an ideal figure as a venturesome young Irish soldier of fortune who has become a cowboy in Texas after having fought in the army of the Confureacy during the Civil War. The story of the picture picks him up when he has become the trail biss of an outfil driving a huge herd of Texas longhom steers up along the Chisholm Trail to Dodge City, the little town in southwestern Kansas that had become the largest callle shipping rente rin the west after the Santa Fe Railway had been extended to what had merely been a drinking and carousing center for the soldiers from nearby military post. Fort Dodg. In the screen play written by Robert Buckner, events are contrived to get Flynn to accept the post of sheriff of the wicked town where the six- arhiler about this he of all clean- finallv The Morning AfterTtking Carters Little Liver Pills INSTALL A FLOOR FURNACE NOW—Special Discount EASY FHA TERMS HARRY W.

There are many impressive and hair- raising scenes in the production, hut those- that the spectator is most likely to remember longest are a cattle stapede in the early purl of the picture, a rousing saloon brawl, in which more than 100 men make a veritable shambles of the place, and a cli- mrclic pistol battle in a railway.mail car which is given a sudden and horrible twist when the ear bursts into flames. Flynn. of course, dominates the action of the piece throughout, but he i.s biven valianl assistance by a very expert ensenmble of supporting players. Notable among them are Olivia de Havilland, as a pioneer newspaper girl who falls in love with the sheriff and helps him in his campaign to clean up the- ^rwn; Ann Sheridan.
