XVIII TT^IIEN a weary iwig of a tree released ils truit and let an apple thump to the ground at the feet of Sir Isnnc Newton, it scut his mind along a path which led to She discovery or the law of gravity. It was thus that Azalea Palmer's next words gave the detective Martin Queripel what his French ancestors called "furiously to think." Ycl Azalea laughed more with scorn than humor when she said: ''What's to prevent that fingerprint man from saying thai he found (hose fingerprints of mine on the, telephone, and then accusing me of murdering my own father? It wouldn't be any more ridiculous lhan accusing Paul of .it." The young lawyer, Harley Kenyon looked at Queripel and smiled at Azalea's quaint notion; but Qucripel's intense meditation changed to a look,of startled wonder when Azalea. added_lightly: ' "Why, didn't thaTyefy ''finger- 1 print man, when he finished with us anrt was leaving, the room— 'didn't lie call out (o somebody in the room where my, father's body was lying—did.l't the fingerprint man shout at somebody: !'Kelso, I told you to keep away.from that telephone!" - •'••'•'• Queri^el winced as if struck, and sair 1 .: "You' didn't tell me that before!" "I never thought of It till just now when, we were talking o( tliat fingerprint man. Is it important?" "It might be." said Queripel, not daring to tell her, hardly daring to imagine how important il miijlii be. To confuse Ihe confusion—and it is out of confusion that order \ arises—Timothy O'llca blundered : in. "Is it 'Kelso'—the man's name you're just after incntionin*. Miss'!" "Kelso," she assented. *'He was a)l over (he place. He came in later and told Detective Fleming about how he'd found out that cer- j lain people had seen Paul go into ' Ihe house, and force his way through Ihe door in spite of my father's trying to keep him out. It Avas Kelso who was sent to ;tr- ; rest Paul. If you could have seen jhis ugly fate light up when lie 1 got word to go arrest Paul at his studio! And Kelso took along the fingerprint man, who had sworn at him for touching that fatal telephone the murderer used to kill my father. O'Hea interposed. "That Kelso is as bad as they make 'em.' When the big blow-up comes in the police department, he'll be one of the first and worst. He's one of the vice squad graduates. And he goes about with a woman as bad as he, is^-Nelda Croft, she calls herself."-/ , !,- •AT. the mention of that'name, Azalea flung up her head and seemed to be listening. And she was listening—to her memory. ' "Nclda • Croft?" she 'hought aloud. "I remember ' hearing the name when my father was talking to the butler once. The butler said, 'You're wanted on the telephone, sir, by Miss—Miss Croft.' I was in another room but 1 couldn't help hearing my father say: 'Remember this. I'm never at home— never! when you gel a cull from that blackmailing—'" She paused. When Queripel aiid Kenyan and O'Hea exchanged glances now. it was almost as if their eyes were billiard balls caroming oil one an- ofher for an imporlnnt shot. They had no theories as yet, but dancing about in their brains were the glitlcrini! elements of which theory is made. •There was so long a silence that Azalea rose and said: "I've taken too much of your lime. I'd better leave you a chance to use your brains. Could I ask what's the first thing you plan to do?" • • • QUERIPEL answered for Ken\- yon: "I imagine that the first thing for your lawyer to do will be to get himself accepted and recorded us Paul flloody's lawyer. He'll have to see Paul, of course, and get his consent to our working for him." "Tell him It was my wish, and the only ibiug that will make me happy. I couldn't be happy while he is in danger. Tell him:it is the only thing that will save me from despair. Shall I write it?" 'If he won't take our word," said Queripel, "I'll ask you to do just :that. But I think we can make him listen to reason. Once we have his permission, I think that, while Kenyoh here is mapping but the legal steps he has to take, I'll go over and see that /in- ge'rprint man in the Crime Laboratory, and look* iuto his collection. I'll ask him about this man Kelso. I still believe that fingerprints don't lie. But it's just possible that they might be misquoted." . . Azalna put out hrr hand to Queripel across the desk and he clasped,it in both of his. It was like steel in velvet. ' She gave her hand to Kenyon, and he barely saved Wmsell from bending over to kiss it. When she put out her O'Hea, he stared at it in surprise and handled it as if it were a little bird. He fell over his feet as he rushed to the door to open it for her.
