If he hadn't I niieht have made it to Memphis all right. This is as far as I can go now." Miss Long said, she had known the dead man. for some time. Hopps told arresting officer? his half- brother had been drinking to excess and that he had attempted to persuade him to take ^tlie train to Memphis instead of dfivinJs" i Tils machine there.
