She had almost a new face and quite a new courage when Timothy .O'Hea brought In.HarleylKenyoh. Querjpel noted Jh'u.t at the sight of Azalea, Kenyon fell back as^if she had struck turn a blow, Her very littleness and pitiful- ness gave her prettfness more impact .an a normal man than any grand and flamboyant sirenic beauty could have wielded, ' And Queripel was relieved to find, that Azalea was .plainly im- pressedjt>y Kenyan's appearance. Harley'Kehyon's riugged and irr regular features and forthright expression revealed to Azalea qualities of courage and •; strength and masculinity that no' Greek god, perfect soever in beauty, could have- expressed. The man anil the woman *ctuA!cd each the other as strangers, their pasts as unknown as their futures. Kenyon did not even know Azalea's name, though he had seen her pictures in the papers. Queripel had not told him whom he'was to meet, : a.nci Kenyon had 'or a few moments the thrill of ^costing his eyes on the most adorable creature he had ever met. rils fancies took flight, but were Drought down like shot pigeons when Queripel explained who Azalea was and thai she wanted tehyon to snve her fiance from he gas chamber. Her sublime faith In Paul Moody's Innocence had strengthened her with a sublime faith in his acquittal. The gentle disbeliet of the kindly Queripel had shaken icr confidence more than all the harshness of the others. But Kenyon accepted everything she told him as the gospel truth, and anything she wanted him to do as a divine mission. He felt like a young Knight of King 1 Arthur's Round Table to whom some beautiful - f 'ladye' r has appealed to help her through a dark forest peopled by black ogres- * * * TA'TER, he would be almost tempted to wish that Paul NToody might ^ c found guilty and removed from competition, so that he himself might console his lovely client. She was more irresistible for her meek lack of self-esteem even more than for her winsome beauty and her fanatic devotion. Kenyon accepted the case with enthusiasm and told A/,alea as much. He" promise (I her more than he hoped to achieve because he felt that she desperately needed sip of hope to carry her through the clesert of despair, "Leave it to us. Miss Palmer,' he said. "There is no more wonderful detective than Queripel, ant with his skill and my determination to serve you, .Paul Moody is as good as acquitted now." That first word of optimism broke Azalea down completely She rose, but would have droppet o the floor if Kenyon had not aught her and upheld her. Her ears on his sleeve were to hlnvlhc ewelcd ribbon that a ladye of •Cing Arthur's court would have astcncd on the sleeve of her ihoscn Knight entering, a tournu- ncnl. As soon as Azalea could get her:elf under control again, Kenyon ifTcred to lake her home. But she said: "I've a car down stairs." "But you oughtn't to drive a car in your state of mind." "1 have my father's chauffeur." 1JJKSIDES, I want you and Mr. N^^Sfr Queripel |o j?ct to work at once. Forget all about me—except 'o tell me a bit of news now and hen—especially how my poor darling Is looking. You are hit awyer and he's your client, but I'm lo pay you. Don't tell him that; but when he says he can't aflord to pay you, then you say you'll work lor nothing—for publicity or something. But save him. And God bless you and help you. And don't let all that talk about Fingerprints not lying fool you. They even took my fingerprint! while they were at it." "They took your fingerprints?" Queripel asked. "You didn't tell me that." Yes," she said. "The man who was picking off fingerprints from everywhere about the house, cam* into the room where Nadine and I were being cross-examined by the police detective—Fleming I think his name was." O'Hea, who was listening in as usual, broke in again: "Nice fellow, thai Fleming; hut dumb. But he's > clane straight honest stick." Queripel sijenced Q'nea with. « look and nodded to Azalea to go on. She did. "While Fleming was questioning Nadine and me, and a police stenographer was staking It down, the fingerprint man came In and took our fingerprints—for reference and elimination, he said." Then she tossed off a careless comment that acted on Queripel's brain ns an apple once acted on Ihc brain uf Sir Isaac Newton.
