She had told me to take tho short cut which was the path through the meadow and led inevitably t'J the discovery of the murder. Wai that '.o give herself another alihi? And what of the time? Claud had left the inquest fifteen m:r:iU-B 1c-fore it adjourned, which wouid have given him just about enough time to reach the meadow. So what of Maud? How long actually had she been in the bar? Atwj hc-y Icntf had Chivery been dead? Craig and Peter were probably thinking very much the same thoughts for, after a longhih silcucc, Peter declared, "I don't think ahi did it. A woman " Kicky came in ju.-t tln-n ta r.ny there was a dinner of t-orls in the dining 100m. A little to my surprise, Craig tackled him then and there about the checks. "What were those checks for, Nieky '!" he asked. "It coulJn't have been an allowance. My father wouldn't have given ycu or uie or anybody an allowance." Nicky answered instantly, smilingly. "He would have, if Alexia asked him to. As she did for me." A slow flush came up into Craig's face, but his voice was quite level. "Do you know Frederic Miller 7" This time Nicky didn't answer promptly; he seemed to think, cautiously. Then he said, "No. What about him? Are there canceled checks to him, too?" 13 ut Craig shook his head and made us all go to dinner. Gertrude, the little waitress, popeyed with excitement, stayed with Craig while I ate hurriedly with the others. X was alone with Craig when the police finally came.

German families are interested in the welfare of their men, now held captive by the Allies, and a threat of retaliation would put pressure upon them to restrain the brutality of their own government. SENTIMENTALISM. "I don't want to send a war hero to prison," declared a judge recently, in suspending oprtpnw unnn a sailor who had been brinjf a b jH.'tln from the police in I had heard in the brush and -thy gruesome discovery. , 1. Mainly they asked Craig About Dr. Chivery. Nugent asked, "Did the Doctor know anything about your father's death?" , f. . "Claud didn't tell everything he knew," remarked Craig obliquely. Nugent's green eyes sharpehL "Why do you think he was killed, m-ent?"- ' ' "I don't know. But I'd stick to the knife if 1 were you for a clue, 'j he glove . . ." "What about the glove ?" Oh, nothing. It doesn't seem to mean anything.'1 "You're not being very frank, Bic.fc." "I can't do much to help you when I'm hi bed." Nugent said slowly, "I'd better toil you that it would help if you hud an alibi for thia afternoon.V "I!" Craig lifted himself abruptly on his elbow, winced and lay cautiously back again. "An r.libi always helps," declared Nugent. "But tlie fact is people are spying now that you and Mrs. lil t at inherit practically all of your father's money. And everyone knows that you and Mr. Brent . . ." A slow flush was creeping Up over Craig's face; his eyea harrowed. "Well? Say it." "You know as well as I do what E mean," said Nugent. "Everyone thought you and Mrs. Brent were to be married over a year ago; then you married the nurse and Alexia Senour married your father. New they're saying ..." "Listen! 1 didn't kill my father! Get that into your head! I didn't kill Claud, either," said Craig bleakly. "I've 00 alibi for thia afternoon, unless you consider it an alibi not to be able to walk without getting dizzy." Nugent leaned forward. "Are you Pure of that, Brent?" "What! Do you think I'd Stay here if I could help it?" he cried angrily. "Don't you think I'd get out and do something!" "What would you do?" broke In Nugent softly. Craig stopped abruptly. "I dont know," he said wearily, after a mo-, ment. ' I said, merely in the line of duty, and not to defend Craig, "He couldn't have murdered Dr. Chivery. He couldn't have walked that far rnd back. I'm sure of that. Lieutenant." Nugent's grey-green gate plunged at me. "Are you lire,' Miss Keate?" "Yes. And as to that, Mr. Brans had an alibi the night his father, died. I was with him.' "I know," said Nugent without! any expression at all in his faoajj "Still, sick people have been known to walk incredible distance. And there really is no alibi in the aaaa of murder by poison." Craig made a quick motion for ward as if to expostulate, ana I said hurriedly, "I can't let you oueatioi my patient very long, Lieutenant,' And put my hand on Craig's wriat (To be continued) lie nc:;'t p.':ac;w and once reter, Nit 'rcy, ivrtl L'.xvens went down in-iu t!io iiiL-ido t until they encount ered a policiPim who sent them Lack.

For this crime, the individual deserves punishment, regardless of whether he was a war hero or not.
