A prolonged pounding by Pally, after continuous ringing of the bell, brought no response. She went lo thc apartment next floor ami pressed the bell. An elderly man answered the door. No, he didn't know thc occupant on thc other side. He had often planned to call on :i fellow iirtisl. And, now, the young man was Mono. He had seen him leaving this afternoon in a cab. He had carried several large suitcase? with him. "Thank hravc-n for Ardath!" "ally thought wildly ;i;; slic . .. to save Jill from prison. I guess with all her looks and money, she'll gel by wilh a few years in prison. When she comes out, she won't be so highliat, I imagine." . * * * 'INHERE was no help here. Patty -*- Mlim'lterf to herself that Ar- dalh had lhc upper hand. There were times when Ardath eould look so sweet and appealing. She eoulcl picture Ardalh with that innocent look she liad at times looking up at a jury through a mist of tears, swearing she was being made a victim lo save Jill. There was nothing else lo do. No one else who could help. In a flash it came lo her. There vtsis the old woman wflh the red scarf Jill had given her. She find her. Her testimony ami the, scarf would dear Jill. But nobody on 67th slreel had seen an old. beggar vvoman wearing a red s«.'arf. 'Beggar* don't come on ibis sired," one iraifi woman told Patty. "Some of us may be poor, but we're all respectable, and able licadc-d lor ft he exclusive shoe j to lake care of ourselves Who whore Ardalh modeled. ever heard of such a story? An "\'.'hat do you want?" Ardath began bdligerciilly. "I'm pretty busy if you don't mind—" old lady, begging at that time of mornjng." Patty turned away. Well, of j -. -T--.. .." i tinj. luiucu away, well, 01 'I do mind," Tatty answered, i course Jill hadn't sairt thc old lady 'Take me to some private place was n beggar. But she had kept where \ve can talk." pATTY went directly lo Hie point. "Ardath, .Jill is in trouble. The pou'ci: think she had 'oniclhing to do wilh the death of her father, who died, they say, at (i o'clock. Jill wasn't at home then. She had just left you at the door of Alan's apartment." "Why didn't you go lo Alan JelTry?" Ardath asked. "I did. He wasn't al homo. The people next door saw him leave this afternoon with his suitcases." Patty immediately regretted, the words. She had seen a look in Artlalh's eyes that she recognized. Thc look of the i-al slipping between the cat's paws and into its own dark hole. "Pretty dumb oJ me," groaned to herself. "Gone away, has lie?" Ardalh mused. "Well, even if he were hero, and even if I were at his place—which, remember, I'm not admitting—il wouldn't help you any. Jill Wrntu'orth Ls not telling •the truth. I didn't see her that morning around (i o'clock. You can tell her for me that she'll have to Ihinl; up another .ilibi." • "Nobody can prove 1 was there, 'bc-r.-nisc I wasn't" Ardath persisted.

She had covered every place in the block. No, iliere was the apartment next door to Alan's, occupied by an elderly artist. She would go back to him, and fell her story once more. If hi? couldn't help, she would ask the police to keep a lookout for an old woman wearing a red scarf. Beyond thai—but Patty wouldn't think beyond that. * * * QNCE more, Patty rang the bell of the apartment lhat adjoined Alan's. And again the friendly face of the elderly man appeared. "Still looking for lhc young man?" lie queried, before Pally could speak. "I'm afrqid I've no news. I haven't seen him since lie )rft l"day. And nobody has come to his apartment." "No," Patty answered. "I'm not looking for him now. I'm trying to find jn old woman—" "An old woman!" The clderif man smiled. "So it's an old woman instead of a young man you want to find?." Patty smiled wanly back al him. Of course, she did sound crazy. But somehow she must convince him the was not. "Someone—a girl friend of. mine is in great (rouble," Pally said. "This young man and an old woman who was begging in Iront the day my friend came here are ihe only two people wlia could help her." "We have no beggars," the man began stiffly. "I've heard lhat before," Patty answered. "Just the same there was an old woman in front o£ this building, and my friend gave her some money and a red woolen scarf—" 'A red scarf!" the man exclaimed. "Oh, of course. Will you come in?" They were walking dawn a hall. And now ihe man was throwing a door wide. * * * CEATED near a glowing fire, ^ knitting briskly, was an ancient-looking old woman. About her shoulders was a cheery red scarf. "Nanna," began ihe man slern- ly, "did you take some money from a young woman when you wenl out for a broiilh of air early yesterday morning? And where did you get lhat scarf?" The old woman's bright eyei (winkled. "Did she repent he.' bargain and want the pretty scar! back? Or maybe she didn't knov it was si beeg bill she was giving The man shook his hcaa in inock disapproval. "You'd never know thai you were the mother <?f a respectable painter. Shameless. Taking money. No wonder this young lady was out searching for n bejgor." "She lookrd al her watch and mid, 'It's seen o'clock,'" thc old. woman broke in.merrily. "And I iaiel, 'You don't have to lell mo- the time. I know by thc sun.' So pretty she was. So ashamed slu- i'.'ould have been, if I geevc the money back." Pally sat down weakly. "Please excuse me. But I feel a littlo faint. After I recover a bit, I want i'ou and your son lo go with me to Ihe police. The girl who gave yon the red scarf is in trouble. The police claim she was somewhere else al G yesterday morning." "The} 1 do, do they?" began the old woman. "Those police! Well, 1 guess Ihis will prove something. Are those the girl's—what do you fay in your Engloosb.-rjneetiaJs?*, She look the red scarf from her' shoulders and handed :ii to Patty/ Inside were Ilic letters, embroioV etcd on a silk marking band,, (To Be Concluded) and a career was taking it as a matter of course Instead of as a lark.
