But the fact remains that Dc- ylnc knows all nbotil Hoy Filter H is significant that Albany is .the only high school Devine mentions as Imving- gone to observe. CoasI observers wonder how, having gone expressly to watch Albany, Devine failed to see young Mr. Fitter, and how, having tailed to see liim, he knows all about him? > 1 .There also Is some reason to uispect that a boy who Is able to throw at 15 will be able to throw .at 20.
