The first, of course. Is (hat Nita Seliin was qni!e deaC or .very near-sighted. I happen to know from having met her today—" "You met her today?" Slrawn lu terrupted Incredulously. Dundeo explained briefly, then went on: "As.I was saying I have good reason to know she «vas not ieaf, but I can't say as to Inr being near-sighted, except Iliat It Is my observation that people who are extremely near-sighted do cot have very wide eyes autl no creases between the brows. I am fairly sure Ehs did not wear glasses at all, liecause glasses worn even a few- hours a day leave a marl: across the nose or show pinched red spots ou each bidu of the base of the no so." I "You must have had a good, hard look at her," Strawn gibed. "1 did." Dundee retorted, grin- niUE back at this former chief, who well knew the boy's weakness for a pretty girl. r "Wc'J, conceding that she was neither deaf nor half- blind, she would necessarily have heard and seen her assailant hetore he shot her." "What's the other explanation?" Strawn was becoming impatient. "That the person who killed her Tras so well known to her, and his or—her presence in tills room so natural a thing that she paid no attention lo his--or her—move ments and was concentrating on the job oi powdering her very pretty face." "You raeon—one of that gang of EQciety folks in there?" and Strawn jerked a thumb toward the left side of the house. "Very probably." Dundee agreed. "But Where's the gnu?" Strawu argued. "I tell you my men---" "This was a premeditated murder, of course," Dundee interrupted ''Tho Maxim silencer—unless they are all lying about not hearing shot—prov*» th*t Silencers are LOST AND FOUN'D Bliouli You mean —one of thai gang of society folks in there?'' trustingly against his must ho his wife—Kami L who had jumped at licr first proposal during liar flrnt season.

Penny cried. 10 Jnni|ied to her feet and nlcil a »wiri way over Oriental and between Iho two brldgo tables, still occupying the center o[ the bin room, still cluttered with score pads, Inlly cards anil playing cards. "I've been wondering it you had slopped lo have dinner first," sho stuck QUO of her little thorns inlo him. Then, laying a li.iiul on his arm, she faced tho living room eagerly. "Tula js Mr. Dundee, folks—special investigator attached to Hie district attorney's office, "ml a grand detective, lie solved the IloK;ut]i murder case, yon know, and Hie Ilillcrcst murder."

'-'Now, look herei chief," Dundee protested, laying a haini. ou Jtrawn's shoulder as ho reverted to ho name by which he had oil Iressed tho head ot the homicide squad for nearly a your, "we're gong to be friends, aren't we 1 ; Same as always? We know pretty well how to work together, ilon'l we? No uso to begin pulling sgainst each other." "Giles's so," Strawn growled, but he was obviously pleased and relieved. "Maybe you'll better havp a crack at that crowd yourself. I hear Doc Price's car—always has z. bum spark plug. I'll stick around with him until he gets going good on his job, then, 1C you'll excuse mo for butting In, I'll joiu your parly in tho living room. . . . And good luck to -you, Bonnie," he i added, to take the sling out oE the' bit at thrown-iu sarcasm, Diuiuco took the (loor ho knew must lead into tho central hall, but found himself in an enclosed section of it—a small foyer -between the main hall ami Nita Selim's bedroom. Thcro was room for a telephone table and its chair, as well as for a half-length sofa. Ho paused to open the door ng In which several women hfld irrivcd at tho brldge-and-death 'arty. Another door lu the section ie- unit tbe Elaucnso leading lo tho gablcil second story next claimed :iis attention. Ojiening it, lio discovered a beautifully tilled guests' lavatory. TliMO was even a fully appointed dressing table for women's use, so that none ot her guests hail had the slightest excuse to Invado the privacy ot Mrs. Eclim'3 bedroom and bath, unless specifically invited to do so. Rather a well-planned house, this, Dundee concluded, as he closed tho door upon the shining ercen porcelain 'fixtures, nml walked alowly toward tho wide archway lhat led from tlio ball into a largo living room. He hail a curious reluctance to intrude uiK>n that assembled and guarded company ot Hamilton's "real society." TJUT his first swift, all-seeing glanco about the room rcas- •od him. No hysterics here. Theso people brought race anil breeding oven into Iho prosenco of death. A stout, short woman. of about 30 was lapping a foot nervously, as sbo talked lo the man who was licnding over her chnir. John C. Drake, that was. Dimika hnd met him, knew him to he a vice president of Iho Hamilton National Bank, in chargo ot the trust department. I'enelopo Cram was occupying a "Iqyc seat" with Lois Dniilap, tlio hands of the girl nnd of Hie woman clinging togciher for mutual comfort. And that tall, Ililn, oldish man, with tho waxed ;ray mustache, must bo Judge A T. that polut Penny heslUtcJ, ~r- theii rather sillily Included Iho "Broadway" man, as "Mr. Dcxlcr Spraguc—of New York." "Thank you, Miss Cratn," Dundee said. "Now will you plcaso Icjl me, if you know, whether all lliuso invited to both tho brlilgo parly anil tho cocktail parly are here?" Penny's (ace named. "Ralph Hammond. Cllvo's brother, hasn't como yet. . . . I—I rather imagine 1'vu been 'stood up,'" sho confessed, with a faint attempt at gaycly. Ami Kcilph Hammond was tho man who had once belonged rather exclusively to Penny, anil who, according to her own confession, had succumbed most coni- plclely to Nita Selim's charms! Dumleo noted anil ftled the reflection for future reference. "Please, Mr. Dundee, won't you detain us aa short a tlmo as possible?" Lois Dunlnp asked, as she advanced toward him. "I shall detain all of you no longer than is absolutely necessary," Dundee toltl her gently, "but I ain afraid 1 must warn you Hint I can't let you go home very soon —unless ono or more ol you has something of vital Importance to tell—something which will clear up or materially help to clear up this bad business." He paused, then asked curtly: "I am to conclude that no ono has anything at all to volunteer?" across from tho telephone table and! lingo Marshall, and Ihe pretty girl Thcro was no answer, more than a barely perceptible drawing together in self-defense ot tho minds and heads of those who had been friends for so long. "Very wellj" Dumleo conceded abruptly. "Then I must put all at you through a routine examination, since every one of you is, o! course, a possible suspect."
