M)W «O (IX WITH Tlli! STflllV CHAPTER VII CUN streamed through a small, '•^ barred window into tlie room inlo which Molly had been unceremoniously thrust the night before. But it was nol the sun, but loud, angry voices thai awakened her. "Of all the dirly rotten tricks! So he thought he could pull a joke like lhat on us|"aml (let by with it. Bringing a cheap liltle nobody —while that Milford girl—!" The man's voice died in an angry rumble. Molly could not dfcliiiguteh the, rest of the sentence, but she had heard enough. For some reason Uic kidnapers were confused about her identity. They believed she was Hint other liirl— Ihc one she had change:! dresses with. Molly ciiil not even lamw the olher girl's name. She reached for (he small brown purse, her heart fluttering wildly. Inside were a handkerchief, compact, a smaller coin luirsc with some loose change, and a letter. The letter was postmarked the morning before and was addressed lo Miss Leola Bill-low. Molly hcsi- tuled lor a moment. It was necessary for her to know somelliinj put (lie letter back into -^ (he envelope soberly. In ihe r.cxl room the verbal war/are was continuing, punctuated frequently by a furious oath. "If heals nie. What did he expect to get out of .a job like thai?" "A good latigli. He was going back to Chicago, laughing up his sleeves al you" and Louis," tlie woman said. "lie knew you and Louis loved hini like rat poison, Steve, nnd would have turned him up long ago it you liadri't been scared." "Well, I did lurii him up, didn't I?" A man's cold, menacing voice. "Sure you did, Steve. You (rapped him with that bank robbery, ami then told tho police where lo find him." "'Oh, dry up. What'Il we do with the girl, Louis?" "I'm listenin' to you, Steve, but you know what I'd do." "Bring her out," The key grated in the lock. The rioor was thrown open and a man stood in the opening, surveying Molly with hostile eyes through Ihe slils of a mask. The man caught her by the arm and stared down al her face. "If beats all hell!" he exclaimed. They were all masked. The. woman and'Ihc two men formed) mi amusing circle around Molly. "Take a look al .this," the fat man said, pointing a stubby finger al a largo photograph on the front page of a newspaper. Above her own picture, bold words leaped out at Molly, "Heiress Takes Own Life. Molly Milford, daughter of Jay Milford, commits suicide in department store. Body found on sofa in rest room by cleaning woman. Father prostrated, can give no motive—" I't 4 * TyrOLLY sat down weakly and lt - L covered her face with her hands. That poor, distraught girl! "All right, now, sister. It's your linn (o talk. Arid talk fasl!" Molly swallowed hard. Her heart was .leaping wildly. • She must talk as that poor girl would have talked. H she didn't— "I didn't do nothln'. H was him —Nelse," Molly answered in a low, husky tone. "We know | dirty crook! nil about him—the How'd you happen about this girl. Immediately. Ali"' ny .

And I said, 'Take a look at Uhisi' and showed him a pielu'rc I cut out of a paper once. He said I could fool the girl's own mother and—" "Go ahead." "Yesterday he called me 6r( the phone.

"He said he wanted mo ( 0 dress up in the best thirds I nail because he was going to play a joke on these friends and mal-o them think he was okay wilh this Milford girl. 'They will cat it up Leola,' l,e said. 'They're snobs, and won't play around wilh people who don't have money.' And then he laughed. So I dressed up and-7-" "Well, you done il all right" Sieve growled. "Now get back imp (hat room." Molly stood still fov a monicnt after the door had closed behind her. She felt that lerrible faintness coming over her again But she must not faint. So niuc'h depended on keeping cool and sane. Evidently she had played her part well. They had' been completely deceived. It would be kind lo destroy that revealing note, now that il had served its purpose. Molly took the letter out of (he purse once more and looked down al il. The door was flung wide and Ihe woman wilh Ihe frowsy, corn- colored hair came in. "I'll trouble yoii for that purse," she said shortly. "And Ihal Idler, loo." She examined (he purse carefully aiid then 'handed it brick. She went out of. the rotini wilh Ihe letter in her hand. After a few moments she returned. Her voice held a hint of sympathy. "I'll bring you some breakfast," she said. "If I was you I wouldn't waste any tears on that fcllov.-. He don't sound so much to me. It wouldn't surprise me if you wouldn't be bettor off without him. With yonr looks you won't have any (rouble finding somebody else. Just like he said." "I know," Molly spoke. wearily. Fear, uhhappiness, hunger had made her feel really ill. Tears slipped down her while checks. ""We women are. all alike,- t guess," the masked woman said, "but you got more lo cry about than a man." With this doubtful consoirxion. she lelt tlie room. .
