Try Surprising Them Now, the children won't always know what to ask for. You won't know, cilher, perhaps, whal new road to start them on. Bui a slifdy of Bees or Benny and their natural tastes will be rather a good guide. So start them on hobbies you think they'll lake to. The stamp collector usually gets something dear to his heart, because he knows what to request, and others know it, too. The athlete gets his baseball outfit, his racket, football, or gym exerciser, because ho has advertised for it. But other children might like lo begin. Jim may love a punching bag; Joe, some Indian clubs; Bessie, a pair of tap shoes. You sec. Christmas might be a turning point to new and satisfying things ihcad.

"Wh-what happened?" she asked hesitatingly. "Get dressed! Get downstairs!" Dawson roared, and ran on to crash into Alston's room. The old man lay on the bed, as before, sound asleep. Dawson shook Alston. "Wake up! Wake up, man!" Alston stirred and Dawson shook him again. "Damn sleeping pills." ' He slapped the old man sharply across the cheek. ..A^ton's eyes opened, slowly Get up, get downstairs, at once!' Alston looked up blinking, as con- eciousness slowly returned. "You heard me, get out of there!" And Dawson hurried from the room turning toward the back stairs. He collided with Helen Ben- thorne, running up the steps, at the landing. He grabbed her arms and together they struggled to keep from falling headlong. She screamed and Dawson muttered a few choice observations on women running without looking where they were going.

His face was flushed and she gasped lor air. "You gave me quite a fright, Captain. I thought I heard a shot." "Sorry I bumped you, Mrs. Ben- Ihorne. I was in a hurry." She was staring at his revolver, still clenched in his hand. "I wanted to see you and Douglas and all the rest ; Will you come with me, "My father—he's all right?" "He's been asleep," Dawson reassured her. "Come, now, let's get back to the front hall." "Captain, what is the matter?" But Dawson ignored the question. When he reached di Torio's body, he found Kror-e standing near. "Just like Benthorne, Captain. A well placed shot, in the center of the forehead," Krone explained. "He was'dead when he hit the floor." "Get the coroner's office and tell someone to come back " Dawson ordered. "Where'n hell i Flynn? Did he think I wanted him lo take a vacation?" The cap tain looked up. Douglas wa framed in the door of the study Mrs. Benthorne was standing nearby, terrified and awe-stricken * * * A RA, dressed again, and looking a little more refreshed, was coming down the stairs. Alston followed her a moment later. Al of them were staring, with varying expressions of fear and bewilderment, at the body o£ d Torio, stretched across the archway opening into the living room Joey's sightless eyes were fixed on eternity above the ceiling; his mouth half open, as if he were trying to complete his unfinished story. , /'There's been another killing, right under our noses," Dawson 3egan, as his eyes searched first Dne then another of the group. "Di Torio was giving me some im- jortant information. Someone, icre in this house, was afraid that ie would say too much. That person silenced him. "I believe the shot was fired from upstairs—from the top of the steps—but it is equally possible that it was fired by someone standing here in the lower hall, someone who jumped out of sight before I could get out of the living room. You'll all have to give an account of where you've been for the last 10 minutes . . . Miss Johnson!" Dawson barked out his words. The suave, sympathetic criminologist had given way tp a hard, relentless police officer dealing with a cool, calculating group, one of whom he knew to be a desperate killer. "I was resting, as you suggested, in Mrs. Benthorne's room. I guess I was almost asleep ... I jumped up when I heard the shot—it seemed to be- very close-^-then I heard you shouting and running up the stairs ..." "Would you have had time to get from the head of the stairs to Mrs. Benthorne's room before I started up? What I mean is, was here a sufficient interval between .he shot and the instant I topped he stairs, for you to have made it back to the' room?" Ara stared at Dawson in wonder. Did he think he was going o trap her? "If you're trying to nake me admit I shot Mr. di Torio—" she began. "Answer the question! Would sou have had time to get from he head of the stairs back to the oom?" ^Why—why, yes. I suppose so." Good!" Dawson's searching "aze focused on Alston. "I S up- 'ose you slept through it all, Mr. Alston!" Dawson said sarcas- ically. "You probably wouldn't have heard the gun if it had been shot under your pillow!" The older man smiled, a bit wanly, almost condescendingly. "To tell the truth, Captain, I didn't hear the shot. This whole afTair has This whole exhausted me. I've taken three sleeping tablets—" "That's right, Captain," Krone broke in. "I gave him the last one not more than 15 minutes ago. And I stayed there with him until he went to sleep . . .

Dawson looked at Ben- thorne's partner speculatively, and his glance let it be known that there was much left unsaid. "You had to be, to miss a revolver shot, not 20 feet from your door." He went on to Helen Benthorne. "And you, Mrs. Benthorne?" gone to Jar "eson's quarto use the telephone ters there." "There are other telephones more convenient—" "Yes, Captain. But with so many people in the house, I preferred using Jameson's. It is on a in.e separate from Mr. Ben- horne's. It is also possible to cut off the upstairs extensions from ameson's room—" "How long were you there? iVhere was Jameson?" "I was there about five minutes, had talked to Jameson and the ook in the kitchen. I left him there." "Could you have made it, without being seen by either the cook or Jameson, from the butler's quarters to the rear Stairway?" Mrs. Benthorne eyed him icily. I don t know just what you mean, Captain. I suppose, as you suggest, that I could have sneaked upstairs without being seen. But I could hardly have run back down, then up again, as I wa« doing when we collided, without arousing some attention. That's silly!" "Not as silly as you imagine. . .
