"Yes, the fingerprints seem to lell the story. But things hav« a way of busting at the seams. By th« way/ could you h«v« these prints of mine blown up the same size as thoM you took from Moody?" Slivers nodded. ' "How long will it take?" Queripel asked. "Well, .we're pretty busy,* 1 said James Stivers. "How would tomorrow afternoon do?" ' "Perfectly," said Queripel. "I'll b* here at 3." Slivers was curious to know the cause of Qucripel's manifest excitement. He inquired: "Could 1 ask just what you're trying to prove?" "Certainly." "Well?" ."Ask me tomorrow al 3. I'll Jus beg one more favor. Get me a good print ot lhat unidentifiet thumb near the mouthpiece." Stivers nodded. "Also a set of Detective Pete Kelso's fingerprint. from his police card." Stivers gasped: "Kelso! Wha do you know about Kelso?—o care?" "He was at the Palmer house wasn't he?" "I'll say be was! I cam* nea licking him out." "Why?" Queripcl restrained his agerness. "Oh, he was too damned—help- ul. If there's anything I hate it's me of those helpful people." "Whom was. he really trying to elp?" "What cio yon mean by that?" "He may he more helpful than \f meant to be," was Queripel's cryptic evasion. "Tomorrow at 3. Thanks a million, and good day!" And he was gone, leaving the name of Kelso sticking in Slivers' mind—sticking out of his memory —and sticking into his thoughts. The first thing he did was to send for Kelsb's fingerprint card the police files. • • • AS Queripel hurried to his car, •^ he was so aspen with excitement that one or two passers-by thought he had the palsy. He reached his offlce in a state of thwarted frenzy. O'Hea was oul ind Queripel could hardly fit his key to the door. As soon "as he was in his desk chair, he buried his his clenched fingers as i to hold : his aching skull together He was thinking so hard that when he recognized Timothy O'Hea's heavy step, he waved the man away. It was like waving away a wasp- When O'Hea's mighty hand fell on his shoulder he pleaded: "Co away and let mi think." O'Hea said: "You wouldn't be thinking ol Kelso now?" '"Of course. Who else?" "You wouldn't care to kno' what I'm just learning about him and the info I'm geltin* off hi ladybird, Nelda Crotl? I'd ough to call her his ex-ladybird, fo she's the ex-est ladybird I eve met up with. And she had th finest pair of black and blue eye a lady ever boasted. Our fjrieni Celso sure packs as lovely a wal- op as ever broke the bridge of a wcelheart's nose-** Queripel'j curiosity was *o- aged. He forgot hlg fingerprint roblem for one almost greater: t Paul Moody did not kill Wen- lell Palmer, who did? Somebody must have done the deed, and lone it almost immediately after 'a'lil left Palmer'* house. He fixed his eyei eagerly on O'Hea and asked: 'Are you trying to tell me that Kelso beat up Nelda Croft with ns fists?" "Well, she never got thim grand jlack eyes from his big beautiful ips. Some women love to be handled rough; but, ai Nelda says to me, 'Enough'* enough and too much is & plinty.' • • » "TT was like this. You know that A little crook Snubby Nimms :hat vibrates in and out of the jail house. I've been able to do lim a (ew favors and he's been iclin' as a stool pigeon for me oft and on. I don't know how we'd ever 'a' solved that Brannigan case but only for Snubby's inside :nfo. Well, it so happens that Kelso has been iisin' him too; for there's nothin* more useful to a cop or a detective than a stoolie. "But Kelso's been so tough and stingy with Snubby, the little fellow is scared and sore. He thinks Kelso is goin' oET his nut or some- thin'. Snubby says he's been actin* like a laughing hyena of late, only he don't laugh any more. "It's my opinion that Kelso knows the police force Is In for me of the grandest explosions that ever exploded and he wants to get out of the county before he's caught in it, So;he.needs no end of money in a hurry. "Well, Snubby told me has been sellin 1 Nelda Croft down the river for anything he can sell her for. That didn't interest me much till Kelso's name came into this picture we're workin' on right now. So 1 look up Snubby this afternoon and he tells me that Kelso and Nelda have lately had the wildest row they've ever had. She was threalenin* to kill him or herself or the both of them."
