"Wot a soui was in sight" when he pulled his patrol boat alonside the Amazone and threw a boarding ladder to the deck, Williams said. An officer rapped on a porthole glass and motioned, "Shoot him," when the lion poked his head around a corner and growled. The crew hud barred both passageways after the lion went forward. Peskan said, and the rescue- party climbed aboard to the safety of midship. "They were certainly glad to Bee us,' .said Peskin. "Die lion was lying between a hatch and a wall.

And she h;id business with Inspector Parsons herself, as .soon ;is she could lind him. She was admitted to Inspector Parsons' oHicc ;il once-. H< j lookwi, Chi'islino thought, us if In- hud hardly .slept; but he was us cool and alert as ever. "I've come to tell you," she ho- «nn, "thiil I've been ;i good den) of a fool." "You—and several others," he agreed pleasantly. "Last evening." Christine hurried on, "I went lo u public rending by a clairvoyant called Chandra—" "And he told you," the inspector put in with a tired smile, "among a lot of olher things you didn't believe any one but yourself could possibly know, that you were going under an assumed name?" "Why—yes," Christine admitted; "but he also told me something that may surprise even you, Inspector—that .someone had disturbed my things at the Crestview." "So you have called to toll me that it was Chandra's dagger you found so opportunely last night. . . . A little late, isn't if.'" After a startled bread), Christine asked, "How do you know that it is his?" "Practically every one in Surf City has seen that dagger. You drew his picture yesterday. Artists don't miss picturesque details like that. ... I wonder if you would be interested if I told you that two hours after that merger between Amalgamated and National went through yesterday, this Chandra sold a piece of land he's been paying ruinous taxes on for years to the reorganized company, for u new plant they're planning." "Then you've arrested him?" i . . . That dagger was obviously a planted "Not yet. n little loo clew." "H didn't occur io you, I suppose," she s;iid, "lhal as shrewd a man as he might have planted it himself—guessing that the police would reason that way?" "It did." the inspector told her wearily, "even after our medical oiricer told us that Mrs. Talbert was not stabbed in that booth at all, but was brought there after the murder." "Oh!" Christine said blankly. Then she rushed on in Her eagerness to get on with her own errand, "Bui what I really came to tell you is thai, when T did examine my things, I found these hidden away among them." * * 4; CHE pushed the envelope across his desk. lie opened it, riffled through the contents; then looked up, a frown between bis brows. "And," Christine finished hastily, "I haven't any idea who put them there or whose they are, if Ih.'tl's what you're going to ask." He glanced from her to Ihe papers and bad; again with such cool, mirthless amusement that Christine thought in sudden panic, He's found sornelbintf J missed; I should have looked more carefully. "You mean," the inspector demanded, "that you don't know that, these bunds were the property of your cousin?" After a moment's blank consternation, Christine shook her bead wordlessly. "Well, now ' that I have told you, does it suggest anything to you that you had not thought of In-fore?" "But," Christine haznrded, "if someone killed her for iliose. why wouldn't lie keep them?" "There are other reasons for murder besides robbery, lUi.-w Thorenson. Suppose Mrs. Talbert was not killed for the bonds alter itll, but from any one of a number of other motives, , . , In such a case, mightn't the guilly person reason thai the smart tiling to do was to make il seem as if she had been robbed by someone else— especially someone who might be thought to have a motive for the murder. . . . You, for instance, Miss Thorenson—with a fortune at slake if that will is authentic." When she only stared at him without speaking, he went on, "Or supposing the bonds do explain Mrs. Talberth's death, perhaps the murderer thought that, after the first shouting was over, he could get them from you as easily as he left them with you. . . . Perhaps," he added softly, "it was even someone who counted on your Keeping them safely for him." "You—you can't believe that, Inspector Parsons." "Frankly, I don't know what T believe except that finding these has completely changed the complexion of this whole business. I have been supposing that your cousin's death was tied up with her opposition lo Ihe Amalgamated-National merger. Now it begins to look as if it had only been very neatly timed to look that way—or planned to suggest anything except what's really back of it. . , . Have you read the papers, Miss Thorenson?" "Yes," Christine told him, dreading she hardly knew what. "That is—the extra, after I left here early this morning." 'Then perhaps you saw that your cousin's shoes had been found to fit one pair of those footprints leading from that stranded rowboat lovvard Ihe booth where she was found?" "Yes." * » * A ND Bill's shoes, Christine was remembering, filled Ihe other pp.ir. "That story happened to be true, except," Inspector Parsons was going on, "that they weren't made by the shoes she was wearing; but another pair, identical in measurements with one slightly broken heel. We haven't found those shoes yet; but we are reasonably sure that they were taken from your cousin's house by someone who entered it after il was closed the other evening—taken for the ox-press purpose of making that false trail." "You mean that my cousin's house has been broken into?" "1 didn't say that. II was entered by someone who had a key." When she began to think he would never go on, he asked. "Do you know anyone else who has one?" "No," Christine said vvoodenly again. Then she thought, But of course —Jaspar. The inspector shrugged and demanded with one of his disconcerting shifts of subject. "Was your cousin's vision particularly poor?" "I don't know. ... Of course she wore glasses." "Do you know who her optician was?" "I don't, but Jaspar would, of course. He knows more about her affairs than anyone else." "Jaspar?" He glanced at some notes on his desk. "Oh, yes. That's the name of Mrs. Talberfs butler. We haven't been able to get in touch with him yet." "Oh, yes you have." Christine drew a deep breath. Now she was in for it. (To Be Continued) Ginger Rogers, David Niven Gay Love Team in 'Bachelor Mother* Starts Sunday at Saenger Paired for the HIT,!, linn.', Ginger Rogers and David Niven are costarred in Ihe Sac-tiger Theatre's new romantic laugh hit, "Bachelor Mother," Wea-ving a unique and clever love .story into its hilarious plot. 'Bachelor Mother" has Ginger as a salesgirl id a metropolitan department store, in which Niven appears. M. the store's efficient and bu.sim.-:--s-likc executive son of the owner, played by Charles Coburn. Passing by an orphanage during her huich hour. Ginger spies a woman leaving a baby on the stc-ps and rush iiway. She goe.s to pick up the child and is seen by one of the institution's matrons, who assumes that Ginger is the baby's mother. He denials merely make matters worse, and an investigator is sent to the department .store to check up. This brings Ginger to Niven's attention who magnanimously enhances her job—if she will be a good "mother" and take proper cart of "her" baby! Ginger goes berst-rk and desperately endeavors to make the orphanage take Ihe child. Failing, she tries to wish it on lo Niven. Horrified, Niven lectures her on her inhuman conduct and using her job as a threat, forces her to rear the youngster. The consequent association between Ginger and Niven arouses the jealousy of her self-appointed boy friend', a young stock clerk in Ihe store, who anonymously misinforms Coburn that Niven i.s the father of Ginger's child. This leads to the hilarious climax of the picture, when Coburn tries to make Navin marry the girl so that he may claim ihe infant ns his grandson! Jn keeping with Ibe atmosphere of "Bachelor Mother," elaborate settings were constructed for Die department store sequences as well as for the Coburn-Niven home, and for various- night clubs and dance halls, As in Mi.s-s Rogers' recent "Vivacious Lady." Coburn again plays the role of the auburn-haired star's prospective father- in-law, while such favorites as Frank Aiberlson-. E. E. Clive, Earnest Truex, rerilie Boros and Leonard Penn have Important supporting roles. "Bachelor Mother" is a production by B. G/ DeSylvrf and wa.s-directed by Garson Kanin for RKO Radio from Norman Krasna's screen play. The kangaroo rat is biologically re- U-ted neither to the kangaroo nor the rat.
