"It's that illiterate cop!" Gloria jittered, Milliades shut the waiter door finally and leaned against it, panting as if he had been running, wiping beads of sweat from his forehead. "Someone screamed in there! I heard it!" the cop's voice said and the door began to creak ominously. Miltiades' strode to the door which opened so suddenly the big policeman almost sprawled inside. "You're making a heck of a racket," Miltiades said angrily on the theory that attack is the best dele nse. **I heard the lady scream, I thought—" the big policeman began but Gloria drew herself up h a'u g h t i 1 y, Interrupted. "Me scream? ,.Why,,lididn't.breathe a syllable, did I, darling? My husband would certainly have" heard. It must be the parrot you heard, out on the fire escape." Bless him, he'd just come across with a horrible hoarse yelp of glee as his mistress set him out Cor his bath and now it he'd just blow bubbles loudly enough. "Pretty bubbles in the air," the bird squawked, raucously. "Help! Help!" The policeman strode across the room, glared out at the fire escape here, we might as well have a little chat." He eyed the great height of Miltiades warily as he drew something from his pocket, unwrapped it carefully. It was a knife, a sharp-looking knife, and when she saw the red handle. Gloria caught her breath, pressed warningly with her shoulder against Milli- ades arm. It was the "Mr." kiii(e of her set. She must have forgotten it yesterday when she gathered up her cooking junk. But now the handle wasn't the only thing that was red; there was an ugly brownish- reel stain upon the sharp steel blade. That — thing on the dumbwaiter had had a red stain on the front of Ihe tan coat. we're oil am j nc started Forward. He was opening the door, Gloria shuddered. The room went round and round in dizzy pinwheels of horror as he stared at its dreadful burden, turned to look grimly at the ashen- faued Miltiades. "So," the cop said, "there wasn't any garbage." • • • |>Y the time Gloria was herself *' again and able to think coherently, a great many things had happened rapidly, and something new had been added.

"You ever seen this before, Mister? The knife's got your initials on it, 'M.B.' Mr. M.B.," he added grimly. "We just picked it up behind 'the washing machine at the BeiTonis 1 , next door." "1 left it there!" Terror gave Gloria a voice when she saw her husband threatened 1 . ,"1 used it to cut the top pie crust so it wouldn't run over—the juice, I mean."

It wns only Ihe shock." "What shock?" Lieutenant Mc- Gnrin inquired sweetly, appearing suddenly in the doorway of their bedroom. "I suppose from now on we'll have things popping out Irom under the rug all the time," Gloria murmured wearily. "I find a corpse delivered on my dumbwaiter and he asks, *Whal sliock?'
