Now she knew terror. "I soe for you n very real danger," a voice echoed in her memory. "But," she faltered, "Cousin Emma knew that I am not extravagant — she never suggested that she thought so. ... And she rhnir, and Christine. "Almost nl once Bill Yordley opened the donr and rnme in. "Well, Inspector," said Bill, "Puss-in-Bools pulled a fast one, didn't he? I think your men have lo.sl him in the dark. I've been wondering just how long it would take you (o notice that the switch was right beside his chair." "And I'm wondering"—the inspector's eyes were far from friendly — "just how much you helped him, Yardley." The telephone rang. Inspector Parsons picked up the instrument and listened. Then, ns it the call had been a signal he was waiting for, he suggested almost ».... i .-mi. vi it.* u £ i it su. . . . f\i iv.i m n; - . t .ii 11 it has never mentioned her will to P'^snnlly. "You mi K M as well all go and get some sleep. Hardly daring to believo that they wcro free, Christine found hiTsr-lf, with Bill and Mr. Wilmet, KOing downstairs nnd into the strcr-t. As she nnd Bill worn turning away towurd Christine's lodging, Mr. WiliTK'l coughi'd upolo- {joiicjilly. "Miss Thorwson," )io said, "of course you wouldn't rare to go on ski'tfhing in that booth now—but .suppose I find a quieter place? Could you meet ino tomorrow morning—.sny at that drugstoro in tin' Crcstvii'w — and talk things fivrf? . . . Working with you lias me. , , . T can't imagine that she this letter. Bui—who did?" "Miss Thorenson," Die inspector risked Softly, "could you identify your cousin's writing?" "I—I don't know. This certainly looks like hers." "Isn't there anything you can lc-11 me," the inspector went on id- most gently, "that might throw some light on this business?" Christine thought, I ought 1o 1ell him everything—about Jas- IJp.r, for instance—about that telephone girl, and about the swami's wearing that dagger. But all (hat—with his inevitable questions—would take time. And if the clairvoyant had had any part in this, why should lie have tried to warn her? Now she wanted only to gel to her room und satisfy herself thai there was, among belongings, nothing sinister—like this letter—to corn- plicate the incredible position in which she found herself. "Nothing," j;he said, "that I can think of." The inspector's face hardened; and he swung upon the disreputable figure in wading boots who, with Bill, had just returned from the next room and had resumed his seat in the corner by the door. "Thank you," the inspector barked, "suppose you toll me just when and where you have known this young lady." * * » COMR ONE—Christine thought it 0 was Bill —cried out, "Watch him!" Then all the lights went out, imd a chair fell with a crash. . , . After that there was in the room nothing but the sound of scuffling feet and heavy breathing until the door opened—and slammed shut. . . . Later, sounds of shouts and running came from the darkened corridor outside. When the lights (lashed on again, there were left in the room only the inspector, who stood with his hand on the light switch, Mr. Wilmet fmu/orine behind a been .such a—a pleasure." "Why" — Christine hesitated.— "frankly T shall have to earn .some money .somehow, Mr. Wilmet," "Until 10::?0 tomorrow then? the little man beamed, "Good night." "T TSTEN, Christine," Bill said - 1 as Mr. Wilmet' pattered off into the darkness, "I wish you wouldn't. Didn't you see those flashlights going off all around you down on the Boardwalk? After tonight you're a marked woman." Christine stopped short. "Was that what those men were doing?" she demanded, "ft hadn'i occurred to me that they were sniping at me." "Well, it had to be. Tomorrow your pictures will be all over the front page. ... If you're really hard up, why nol let me help instead of a complete outsider? Anyhow, T don't trust your funny little boss." "Nol trust him? That helpless old babe-in-the-wood? 1 "Old? He's probably not go much on me. Lots of. men are bald at 30. And he may be helpless, but he doesn't handle the truth any too carefully." "What do you mean?" "He didn't go to any moving picture tonight—or if he did it wa nearer 10 than nine as he said," "How do you know?" "I saw him down on the bead fter 9:30. You see, after Labor Day, I'm permitted to take my lorses to the beaeh. The hitching posts are right beyond that studio. night I went down to see what Condition they were in—and there vas your little babe-in-lhe-wood, poking around behind that booth." "Poking around?" "He seemed to be examining he foundations of his booth. Just Before I came along, he went off ip to the Boardwalk. I don't hink he even saw me." They were strolling along the jromenade toward Christine's street. "Bill," Christine hurried on, 'I've got to know—why were you Dealing up Jas—that man down on the beach tonighl?" Bill was silenl for a long moment before he replied, "I am going to tell you because—well, you have got to know—for your own safety, Christine, he was following you." "He was—what?" "He was skulking in a shadow," Bill said, "when you came out of that clairvoyant's joint; and he slunk along the Boardwalk behind you, evidently waiting for a chance to stop you when there was no one else near." * * pHRIRTINE'S spine crawled at the picture his words conjured. "Of course," Bill went on, "the reason I know is that I was trailing you, too. While I was down on the beach, I saw you standing under a light on the Boardwalk, reading something. I was trying to catch up with you when you went into that Temple of Trulh place, and—well, I wailed in a parked car just off the Boardwalk. . . . And now I've got something to ask you, Christine. Just new you started to call Puss-in-Boots by name, didn't you?" "Bill," Christine said, hardly believing it yet herself, "he's Jaspar — Cousin Emma's butler. ... At least he was her butler the last I knew. . . . It's—incredible, but suppose he did kill her?" "I am supposing it," Bill sale! shortly. "But what's a lot more vilal lo me is lhat he wasn't following you for any good." "But, Bill, even if he stabbed Cousin Emma — why should ha want to harm me?" "God knows—unless he's a maniac. . . . And only God knows where he's skulking now. . . , Christine, you recognized him al once, didn't you? I was sure that you had." Christine's blood chilled. If. even Bill had been so sure, Inspector Parsons had not, as she hoped, been just guessing. . ., III knew. Be Continued) repulsing four raids. Five Japanese planes were lost. Hie agency said. The Soviet - German negotiations caused Premier Baic/n Kiichira Hiran- nmt to confer with Foreign Minister Hnehiro Arita, but no official reaction was forthcoming. Privately, some officials said they believed the Anto-Comintcrn pact, in which Japan was leagued with Germany, Italy and other powers, was virtually worthless now. Observers expected that Japan might .seek to patch up her differences with Britain and the United Slates over the conflict, in China and move into close relations with those two powers. i/ ! British Hack Poland LONDON, Eng.—(/P)-Great Britain Tuesday declared her determination to stand by Poland, called Parliament into emergency session Thursday to approve virtually dictatorial powers for the government, and. with France, called up thousands of troops to meet the growing German threat against her Polish ally. Reports from France estimated the number of- new French troops at 000,000, while informed quarters in London said Britain would mobilize 200,(K)(i soldiers, sailors, aviators and civil defense forces. The seriousness of the situation, precipitated by Monday night's announcement of an impending German-Soviet Russian treaty of iion-aggrtssion, was indicated by the British government's decision to ask for emergency powers, Such as are already in effect in France, permitting the cabinet to tafte defense measures without consulting Parliament. Britain's new decisions were disclosed after a four-hour cabinet meeting. A statement declared the projected German-Russian nun-aggression pact, described in Berlin as a "bombshell," would have no effect on Britain's intentions to aid Poland in case of attack. French officials in case groev&jiu.... French officials remained silent but France was believed to he following the same policy as Britain.
