Furniture By Grace Htes Fletcher XXIII TT/HEN GlorU Brown regained consciousness, she was lying back in Miltiadcs 1 arms—his dear, safe, comfortable arms, just like she had wished to be doing when she thought she w;is dying. Ills arms were like cushioned steel as he sat behind her al the head of a couch in the back room of the fruit store. Miltiadcs was saying: ••"Darling. You darling little tool. ... She's coming out of it, Hnnsen." Gloria looked up, still dazed, expecting to see the little gray man. She'd thought all along that he was Hansen—now she remembered, he was Lofty Gordon. Her eyes rested on Reuben, the doorman at the Splendide Apartments, who was bending over her as he finished tying up the bandage on her shoulder. The big doorman, whom she'c been afraid of because she hac thought he was Lofty Gordon grinned down at her and said "She's okay, fella. Her shoulder's only scratched. If she hadn't sloo< in our line of fire, we could have prevented this." So Reuben was Hansen insteac of— Where was the little gray man Lofty Gordon? Gloria lookei around Tony's little sitting room fearfully, but there was no sigt of this terrible person. They mus have taken him away., She Uirned, looking up at -Mil tiades, ""suddenly reali7Jng: "Dar .ing, you're not in jail!" "Lie clown." Mil tiades pushcc ner anxiously back on the couch explaining: "1 sold the lieulenan on the idea that you were up. t iomcthing and if I helped him trai you, knowing your wnys and a! that, we'd find out plenty. An was I right]" He grinned at Lieutenant Me Gann, whom Gloria now notice for the Grst tune, standing in th oorway. McGann grinned 1 back t Gloria. 'Feeling better. Mulligan?" "I'll run a fever of !02 IM dont find out exactly what happened. Give, Lieutennnl McGann. 'Give from the beginning!" "I'll make a bargain." said (he lieutenant. "I'll go home with you and tell you there.** one was friendly anti ho moved ightly lo hide Ihe stretcher which wo men in white were carrying ast the doorway in the next room. "Mrs. Benoni?" Gloria asked as he saw them. Weak tears ran .own her cheeks. The lieutenant shook his head. No, Lolly, He'll Live to fry. We vcre in the alley when we heard iiii shoot her and we came to isien in. \Ve got here just in time The Benonis are—on marble slabs. One apiece." "I can't believe that she killed ial," Gloria said. "It must have been that ratty husband of hers." Lieutenant McGann shook his lead reluctantly. "1 think Benny old the truth," he said. "We iound Wrs. Cenoni's fingerprints on Sal's 'acnucrccl fingernails. Sal wasn't in the water very long. There wasn't any water in her lungs. She might not even have been dead when you first noticed her." * * * QLORIA sat up excitedly. "But if Mrs. Benoni hud been there on the bench I'd have seen her and recognized her!" "Bathing suits and caps make people look different," he said It's pretty unlikely thai you would recognize her, since you weren't as well acquainted as we thought at first." He grinned. "She probably got away and-beat it to a car, but fast. You see, she was deathly .ifniid that Sal would tel Lofty Goftlon what she alone knew." "What did she know?" Gloria asked. "Don't keep me waiting!' "She knew that the Bcntmis hat discovered the secret of the emerald necklace." , "It had green eyes," Gloria shivered. "Evil, green, leopard eyes.' . "She's feverish," Milliades wor ried. "I'd belter take her home lieutenant." "Hush, darling," said Gloria QLORIA didn't want to, but It His i was two against one. Very oon, she was in the police lim- usine and very quickly she was ack home in their own rooms al ic Splendide. - i - - . Under Gloria's direction, Milti- des made some , coffee and they ettlcd back ir the living room, vilh Gloria made comfortable on tie^divan. with her feet on one end nd her head al the other and vith Miltiades beside her. just like had been in the living room at Tony's- Hansen. who had come long, sat across the room. "Now," said Gloria. "Give, Lieu- enant." '• The lieutenant nodded. He lit a cigar and sipped his codec. Mil- iados took Gloria's hand, but she did not notice, for her ayes were glued en Ihe police lieutenant's round face. "It's this way. Mulligan," he bc- ii. "Lofty belonged to the BenonJ gang until he switched to the dope racket. Benoni was scared of this, so Jack the Cork was delegated osing—that means inform, In case you don't know—to the federal dicks. As a result. Lofty got five years in stir." 'Naturally that didn't make hiro love either Benny or Jack the Cork,*' said Gloria. "1 guessed that much. And also I figured out that when Lofty was released early for good conduct, he went after Jack the Cork.* 1 '\Ve figured that out loo," Lieutenant McGann~grinned, "but we didn't think Lofty would risk go- "ng back to jail quite so soon. That's why he caught us napping when he stabbed the Cork, tlan- scn didn't get to the Splendide until after the first murder." "Lofty Gordon was a terrible person," Gloria said. "And a smart one," said Lieutenant McGann. "Go on," said Gloria. "1 can't wait."
