I wasn't clear in my head. I only knew there was dangereverywhere." "Why?" I demanded. "Uecause," he said, which was not exactly illuminating. "Why Claud?" I persisted, getting nowhere fast. , "Because Claud knew all about us; he smoothed things over, he could always manage my father! he -was devoted to him. I think,'' said ' Craig slowly, "it was partly because of Maud ; she thought there was no . one like my father. In many ways Mauil has a much stronger character than Claud had ; he gave in to her about everything but money. Maud's a little overfond of money and would have been a sucker for get-rich-quick schemes if Claud had let hef! "Oh, she wouldn't have murdered Claud on account of the will," Craig added. "They did have a quarrel lately about money. Claud told me. But it was only about some money they had invested, twenty thousand or so; Maud wanted the cash in order to make another investment. Claud didn't know or at leaat didn't tell me what it was." "I suppose," I said on a wave of astuteness, "that Claud knew who shot you. And got rid of the bullet-; so it couldn't be traced." (As he would have done, I thought, to keep a family secret.) But Craig's face was instantly blank. "Do you?" he queried. And, as I lifted my arm to look, at my watch, something rustled in my . pocket and 1 remembered the Fred--eric Miller checks. I gave, them to him at once. "They were in Alexia's room, in the cupboard ..." He snatched them out of my hand, examined them, questioned me, and then lay for a long time staring at,, the sprawling gilt figures oa th dark wall paper, a queer look in hie eyes, his ringers tapping the checks, an expression in hia face that I couldn't read. I tried to question him. "Do you know who Frederic Miller is?" "No no that is, perhaps I do. I'm not sure. Let me think. . . ." - But he didn't want to think any longer, for almost at once ha turned quickly to me, excitedly. "Loek-here, Miss Keate. Will I be able to ' get out tomorrow?" "You may be able to get out of. bed and walk around the room that's about all," I said slowly , ' "Can I get to the Chjvery cot-., tage?" "Na" "But I've got to." "All right Go ahead and kill yourself." "I'll keep these checks." "Are you going to giva them to the police?" He hesitated. "I don't know. I'r . got to think. If they arrest Drue, 111 do anything" "Anything, yes! Except tell her you still love her." "If she love me," he said slowly, "that's enough." (To be continued) j- CsFtflit to Uwn O r.trhart: judgment upon the march ot religion through the ages. All religions are not 'the same'. While some religionists are tossing babies to crocodiles, consigning offspring to fiery Malocr-'. beating their bodies with thorny clubs, laki.:g to hermit's caves, or asking only f r complete oblivion in the waters of Lethe, others are championing the rights rf every human soul to walk the ways of U::3 world in dignity and fullness of living, tofilting the stature of human folk born in the image of our highest dream. Even in enlightened America we sink to a level where we allow medicine-show mountebanks to speak flippantly of the relationships of Man and his Creator. When a man who knew much about criminal law appeared on lecture platforms debating religious values, about which he knew little, he undermined every, church in our land." When a man who knew much about statecraft sounded forth upon monkeys, science and religion, of which he knew so palpably little, we trifled with something precious to every faithful worshipper in all the church pews of our nation. In the dollar-mad 1920's every magazine in the country felt free to select any business tycoon, and print his prattle as authoritative upon religious matters, if his income reached to five figures. The climax, of course, came, when from the bleak black depths of the 1930's, the expensive journal, Fortune, sent forth its famous wail of lamentation, "Our spiritual leaders should have prevented all this. . ." And we are never spared the spectacle. In our own day, when man's inhumanity to man frustifies in World War, a presidential candidate and a heavy-weight Champ stand before tens of thousands to plead "This is God's war!!" Purveyors of celestial information always amaze me. But it's the same old dodge.' "Make this encounter a Holy Cru-sade'V . .

"So," he said ut last, "he did that. And then 1 suppose if she wrote to me, he . . ." "Obviously your father got the letters. And Drue being the kind of girl she is, I don't think she would write very many letters without a reply." "No, he said slowly, staring at the mound his feet made under the eiderdown. "No, she wouldn't write very many times without a reply." 1 said, "I'm going to get Drue. I think I can manage somehow to get her past the guard; perhaps 1 can't but" "Wait a minute." he interrupted sharply. And finally said, "No. She went away with Nicky. Willingly." "liut she there's an explanation for it. Give her a chance and give yourself one. That's why your father meant to send her away. The night he died. She told him, I heard her; she warned him. She said she was going to find out the truth about the divorce." There was a little silence, then he shook his head slowly and deliberately. And I lost my temper. "All right," I snapped, "think as you please. It's your loss. If you'd even tell about the things you know it would help. You know who shot you, don't you? And you knew there'd be another murder. And you know about the yellow glove the glove that they found beside Dr. Chivery. And I think you know why he was killed." "If I knew anything I could tell the Tolice I would do so. But you see. Miss Keate, that's the trouble. If I tell who shot me, it'll make it that much the worse for Drue. It wasn't the same person. The person that shot me, I mean, was not the person that killed my father or Claud Chivery. If I tell the police that they'll say she murdered my father." After a moment I said heavily, "Was it your father, then? Why? Was it a quarrel over well, was he jealous of Alexia?" 1 couldn't read his eyes. He drew up his knees and clasped his un-bandaged arm around them. "Forget that. Miss Keate," he said decisively. "Yea said 'There'll be murder done.' Yon said that the afternoon before your father was murdered." "I remember, vaguely. I wasn't sure I'm not sure now exactly why I was shot. But I had a vague notion that I ought to tell Claud that it was an attempt at murder." "But that isn't what you said. You didn't sav 'There was an attempt at murder.' It was in the future, as you put it. You said 'There 11 fee murder...'" '1 know. You see, I had sense enough to know that, since the first attempt had failed, another attempt might be made."
