PAGE SIX BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS • SATURDAY, MAY 10, 1917 Judge Finds Hope Diamond Too Hot, Lets FBI Store It WASHINGTON, May 10. (UP)— Former ! Judge Thunnan Arr-T^l knows ho»- it feels lo carry the Hope diamond around in his pock- el- like a piece of loose change. But he refuses io' deliver n formal finding or even an obiter dictum on his experience. "I don't even want to talk about It,' he said yesterday. Arnold was among friends at the bedside of the diamonds late owner, Mrs .Evalyn Walsh McLean, when she died at her home licic on Snt- urda?, April 26. He found the diamond, the collector's value of which has been estimated, at $2,000,000, lying among other costly gems in Mrs. Mc- lenn's room. AS an executor of Mrs. McLeim'f will, 'it was inciinx v .".»t- on him to find a safe place for the gems. But bank vaults *-'e are closed at 5 pin. on Saturdays and lliclr' timelocks don't open until the tol- lowiug Monday morning. With a friend, Arnold rode around in a taxicab trying lo figure out what to do with Hie gems before they burned a hole In the former ]judge's pockets. Arnold thought of his former justice department colleague, IJBt Director J. Edgar Hoover. Hoover agreed to slow the Ijope .diamond and its companion pieces in the PIH vault. Arnold refused to say how the experience affected him. He just laughed—nervously. [these Japs Finally Admit War Is Over Head Courier News Warn Ads.

"You invited the whole clan, Madame," said Mrs. Bagot, "so I have also brought my late'hus- band's uncle, Mr. Adam Bagol. And this is my sister, Miss Cod- manj-and of course you already know my son." Vicky rushed breathlessly dc'.v; 1 .stairs, comlns iBtQ the drawing room in time lo see Adam Bagot bend stiffly forward from the waist to kiss her grandmother's hand. The old gentleman looked frailer than ever beside Sophie's ebullient health. Sophie placed her left hand, heavy v.'ilh emeralds, over the hand.of Adam Bagot which she had' clasped in her right. Slowly and thoughtfully she said, "Adam Bagot—" The white bead carrie creel again! "Madame. H is a great horibr and privilege." Sophie.-relinquished the bony hand. T^Miss "Codman," she ac- knrtwledged, turning to the eager spihsUjv-'-who was taking in al the. dt:ails of the room. "How do you do? Welcome.

The guests disposed themselve around the room. Presently S Charles shepherded Basil an Marcel into the room and peared. himself in t\ie dircclio of the kitchen. It was turnin chilly outside in preparation fo the cold August night, and Ma eel was wearing his slr-!;b.v Fhawl. Vicky seized him by an ami. thrust her other hand into Basil's and led them to Mrs. Bagol before anyone else could speat. "TITRS. BAGOT, IhJso arc my ^ uncles—my U;;clc Miu'cel and my Uncle Unsil."

"Right there, Madame/' said Sir Tharlcs, "on the .corner of the ray." Marcel leaned hack with a con- .cmplativc air. "Often 1 think how easy it would be, it one were a kvriter of detective fiction, to murder someone who takes saccharin.
