Hagar Blair liped her ri«;ht to push np the «nd of the bolster. Martin Falter's body stopped sliding. Ha^nr blew out a breath ot relief. Waddling forward, she eased the end of the box onto her knees and. still awkwardly supporting the holster, she managed to raise the lid of the box just a crack She caught a glimpse of what looked like .several bundles of letters, each one tied with a string and bearing a-label such as those usually attached to transient luggage. As she squatted there, she was galvanized by a staccato of footsteps on the front steps and porch. She beard a muffled pounding on the door. "Mr. Falter! Mr. Falter!" Hagnr bounded across the bedroom, shut (he door behind her and sped to the front door before Stephanie hart lime to call again. "Shut up. Slephanic!" she whispered fiercely, yanking the door open. Stephanie stepped back in astonishment. "Hagar! What's the matter? Where's Mr. Falter?" Hagar pulled her inside and closed Ihe door. "Dead!" Hagnr exclaimed grimly. "Deader'n a doornail." Stephanie drew back, trembling, her face marble white. "Dead?" she whispered. "Was he murdered?" Hagar noted wilh a kind of nerverse satisfaction that the girl's tcetli were chattering. Now. she thought, now somebody else could feel seared for a change! "I.onks like he was slabbed." Stephanie didn't move. "Is there—is there a knife?" "Knife?" Hagar looked dashed. "To loll Ihe truth. I didn't Ihink to look for one. Come in with me and we'll see." Stephanie was swallowing spasmodically. "Oh. no! No. I couldn't! I don't want to see him!" Hagar squared her shoulders "Then you keen watch out here." • • • T-TAGAR approached Martin Fal*••" tor's bed. In stories, she thought, there usually was a dae- Kcr projecting from the corpse More, there was nothing, no weapon at all. She got down an all fours and peered under the bed No knife. But there wns a crumpled piece of something. A small square of distinctive tapestry She medilated a moment and then stuffed Ihe material into her pocket ! "Not a sign of a weapon," ilflgar declared xvhen she returned. "Murderer must've taken it away with him. Let's get out of here before somebody conies along and calches us hobnobbing with the corpus delicti. Hope you didn't touch anything in here?" Stephanie extended tier hands. "1 have my gloves on." As they closed the front door behind them. Hagar suddenly paused: "Stephanie! How did you get up here to Falter's?" "fn a cab—oh!" Hagar clasped her hands prayerfully arirl rolled her eyes skyward: "In a cab. she .says! Now ['II have to think up a good reason why I was there when you walked in!" • • • QUIDING her car up Rodin Avenue toward her house, tlagar wonderer) whether to tell Stephanie about finding the empty silver box.

Now here, she thought, was something worth looking at—this carefully arranjrcrt groun of lovely miniature sriilnlurcs: The one in Ihe middle, top row she had talked away from Reverend Charles King's collection, using warm words and cold cash The small one next to it. with the profile of Ihe ugly Roman emperor, she had gotten after a lone tug-of- war wllh the Chicago Museum. And there on the third shelf was an interesting piece. At this point. Hngar's familiar little parade of thoughts came to an abrupt hall! She stared unbelievingly at Ihe piece fourth from the left on the third shelf: It was the dclle Corniole carneilnnl The exquisitely carved weeping woman, the frame ot pearls gleaming softly around her. the diamonds lighting tiny fires on the frame!
