Craig was watching for me eagerly but still looked a little startled at my possibly precipitous entrance. "Somebody chasing you?" he said. I straightened my cap and eautrht mv breath. He got up on his elbow. "Did you find H?" "No." I hated the disappointment in his eyes. He lay back against the pillows. "Oh. AH right. Miss Keate. You did your best. She's given it to the police, then. She said she would. She hates Drue. It's because of . . ." He stopped there, abruptly. And I added crisply. "Because of you, I suppose. She makes it clear enough." There was a sad, altogether grave, look in his face. "I hurt Alexia's pride one time. I didn't realize 1 was doing it; I was in love with Drue, you see. I was so in love that" he paused and then said, ? imply "so in love that there wasn't any other" woman in the world. There wasn't anything but Drue." He stopped again and then went on, "Alexia ju.-t didn't exist for me. Nothing did really." There was another silence; I was wishing Drue could hear him and revolving to teil her. Then he moved restively and said in a difFerv-nt tone. "I tried to humor Alexia. My father loved ht-r he did, you know. She married him and he loved her." "Don't get excited."

Suddenly he ?aid, "It's a hypodermic, Miss Keate, Drue's hypodermic syringe." "Oh," I responded weakly. "You see, Alexia's pot it- You must seaich her room for it. She is sure it belong to Drue..
