"Just what do you mean?" "In the case ot Earl Taltaert, nlso, there were threatening notes. In that, case, too, the victim was lit first thought to have been kid- nuped, and pcrh.-ifis murdered, in his own car. In that case the victim had been drugged—or so it was made to appear. . . . And thiil cast! was confused by misleading attempts lo incriminate others—a.s in this one, Captain King, Miss Thorenson and I have all been deliberately involved." "Don't you think you're crowding this hunch of. yours about the nephew's being alive? You would not push it ,so 1'ar, I suppose, as lo suggest that Mrs. Talbert kid- naped herself?" "Only far i-nougl) to suggest that the two abductions were planned by the .same mind—according to a .similar pattern. . . . I think, Inspector, that the time has come to confess that Mr. JQF- par has not been entirely frank with you. I happen to know"— the clairvoyant ignored the .butler's .startled outcry—"that he has some evidence that ought to help." Christine was the only one in a position to watch the medium after ho had stepped into the alcove where his desk stood. It seemed to her that he fumbled unnecessarily long in an upper drawer before he came back and handed the inspector a folded sheet of paper. At length the inspector said, •'Perhaps we might pass this around. Someone might—have a suggestion." He handed the paper to Bill, who read it and passed it without comment to Jaspar. Jaspar adjusted his glasses and scanned the paper with .startled attention before he put it into Christine's hand. * « * "REMOVING the sun glasses she Ftill wore, Christine thought, after a first glance, This is impossible. . . . Yet a.s she read on, fragments of conversation, strange encounters, bits of. coincidence which had seemed entirely normal happenings tumbled about in the chaos of her memory.

The little man also adjusted his glasses, tilted the paper to a more favorable light, and perused it slowly, nodding once or twice as he did so. "1 think Mr. Chandra is right, Inspector," he said. "This should have been handed to you at once." Whatever Christine had expected, it was anything but this. For the paper, written in a small, but clear script, with ink barely dry, had read: "You will find that one person in this room will be unable to read this. He will pretend to, and may offer some harmless comment; because of all those here, he cannot allow it to be guessed that his vision is very bad. lie will have no reason to suspect that this is not actually one of the messages he sent to Mrs. Talbert. The paper and the arrangement on" the sheet are identical with those o/j one of the extortion, notes Mrs. Talbert sfioiued -me. . . . Have you noticed. Dial Mr. Wi'nnet stumbled in finding a, chair, and almost fell over a footstool?" "You are right, Chandra," the inspector said quietly. "The report that caine a few minutes ago from Mrs. Talbert's oculist jn;ikos it clear that the fragments of lens we found in that wheelchair did not come from her spectacles. . . You are all wearing glasses -or _Miss Thorenson was. Mr. Wilm'et"—his voice dropped into a pool of silence—"we'll begin with you. Oi" course you won't mind giving UK the name of your specialist?" "Why, of course." Mr. Wilmet looked startled but entirely confident. "I've got my glasses from the same man for years." "But not those glasses," the clairvoyant said softly. "Naturally, people with vision as poor as yours always carry an extra pair for emergencies. You hud yours with you, if you recollect, when you came to my studio on the afternoon before Mrs. Talbert's murder. Probably, since you are above everything else an opportunist, it was pure inspiration that made you slip into your briefcase that dagger you "had seen me wearing while Miss Thorenson drew my picture, and which you guessed hundreds of people would be ready to identify." "Inspector," Mr. Wilmet broke in, "this man must .be crazy!" * * * "pERHAPS." The inspector's tone was dry. "Let's see just how his madness will carry him." "I wear that dagger only on parade," Chandra went on. "When you came, it was lying on a low (able near the chair you took. I didn't miss it till some time after you went. ... No doubt I should, have notified the police at once. But how could I guess that it would be used to commit a crime?" "I thought you called yourself a medium?" Mr. Wilmet looked toward the inspector for applause. "That's what the inspector calls me. I call myself a student of human nature. You see, I make it my business to remember things other people hardly notice. . . . And among other things, Inspector, although I have seen Earl Talbert only twice, I recall certain peculiarities which .were common to both him and hi.-, aunt. They were both super.slitious. "The first time I saw Earl Talbert, a few days before he—disappeared—he came to consult me because—he said, lie had dreamed that he was in great danger. I saw no threat for him—he went away reassured that his scheme would work. "The second time T saw him was yesterday, when our Mr. Wilmet came here, also apparently to consult me about his warning dreams. Perhaps that was what he really wanted at first; . but after I had again reassured him, and he had gone, I found my dagger gone, too. Now"— "Just a minute!" the inspector cut in. "Are you identifying this man as the person who stole your dagger?" "I don't think that will be necessary, Inspector. Before we are through, he will identify himself. . . . You see, Inspector, poor eyesight was another peculiarity common to Mrs. Talbert and her nephew. At 10, Earl Talbert had the vision of a man of GO." "Inspector," Mr. Wilmet burst out, "this man's practically admitted that he doesn't know who took his knife. There were a dozen people here that afternoon." "That is true," Chandra said gently. "But only one of them wore lenses like the pair you dropped from your pocket. No wonder you found it impossible to replace them immediately after you broke the others in that wheel chair." He took a spectacle case from his pocket and passed it to th« inspector. "I think," he said, "that when you have these lenses compared with the fragments you took from the chair, you will find that they are identical." "Well, there won't be any question about whose these are when we get into touch with the optician," the inspector said. He glanced at the label inside the case and seemed about to add something. Then he broke off.
