Is that all ?" and made a motion toward the door. "Wait a minute," he said abruptly when I touched the doorknob. There was a short pause. Somewhere a clock was ticking in a measured way. It was almost dark by then and heavy red curtains had been drawn over the windows and one or two table lamps had been lighted. A canned coal lire was burning in ths . hearth below the coat of arms: a ; lump cracked open and sputtered; blue sparks shot upward as Conrad Brent asked, "Did he say anything about the accident?" and lifted bis light eyes to watch me. Well, there he had me. In spite of the antagonism Conrad Brent had instantly ronsed in me, it was clearly my duty to tell someone in authority of the thing Craig had said. So I did. "He said, well, as a matter of fact, he said this: 'But that's murder.. Tell Claud.' And then he said,' 'There'll be murder done.' " I watched Conrad Brent, and he -looke d back at me without the slightest change of expression. That was rather odd because he ought to have been a little startled. He ought t have questioned me too; but he didn't. After a long moment he only shrugged, "Delirium. -viously." And Conrad Brent added, "And he did recognize the the woman?" I discovered a streak of sadism in my nature and said archly, "Oh diflniuly!" That affected him as the other hadn't. He didn't have a stroke, but it was loueh-und-go for an instant.
