' -' i i " 1 r'i I J"H^J__ Basil Willina~ 3 XIX pHARLOTTE DEAN closed her VJ eyes a fen' moments. Then r>ie opened them with a helpless ex- •pression. "1 found nothing. Nothing at ill." -Mia Shaw was not only lame. She was blind. She couldn't write a letter or read one. She couldn't Tftven dial a telephone by herself How was it possible for her to get in touch with Duggan without anyone, even you, her daily companion, knowing anything about "/'re been thinking about that. There s only one way it could have happened. Some friend must have recommended him to her casually and given her his telephone number. She could memorize thai. Then, when I was out 'on one ol my regular afternoon walks she could ask Ihe maid to dial the number and send her out of the room while she talked. Mary wouldn't remember a number she had dialed after a week or so." Basil nodded. "And Duggnn could come here 'o see her while jou were out on another of thoje regular afternoon walks. We know he actually saw Miss Shaw because, just before he tlieci, ho happened to mention to me th<! way slie—his client—had looked when she talked to him." "I wish she had confided in me Instead of a stranger like Duggan " Mid Charlotlc. "i hate to think of her troubled and helpless, imprisoned by lameness and blind«•«. with no one near she fell sfic "Perhaps shr knew that she was doing something dangerous and didn't want you to share the danger." "Oh, llinnk you. Dr. Willing! I hadn't thought o! that and I'm so glad yon did. II makes me Jeel better." Basil set down his fragile teacup carefully. His voice was at its mosl casual when he remarked: "By the way. do the letters '\V. S. mean anything to you?" " 'W. S.' " She repealed the letters slowly. "No. Arc they initials?" "Perhaps." "1 cno l think of anyone offhand who has those initials. That is. anyone Miss Shaw knew." Basil sighed. "(( anyone—or a n y t h in §—with those miliaLs comes back to vou later. 1 hope you will let me know. And now may I see Miss Shaw's own living quarters?" "Certainly," E was little trace of Miss Shaw now in the long room overlooking (he streeL it was lust as if no one had ever lived there at all. Charlolte opened the door of a closet, empty even of coiitracks. 'Dresses have ijone to the Salvn- lion Army. Furs and laces and >ne brooch were left to me. Oilier cwels wen) to Brinsley Shaw with the hope thai he would some- lay have a wife to wear Ihein." Basil though! of Isolds Canning and smiled a lillle. If ever Hrins- cy had a wife she wouldn't want 'those ugly old things of your aunt's." But there was one thing of Katherine Shaw's that she vould appreciate -the fortune that Brinsley Shaw had Just inherited. Charlotte looked slowly around he room, so still and empty in he sunlight. "It's hard to believe he's gone. I can't look at this trmclKiir without seeing her there as I found her that Inpl aftcinoon Uien I cime in frum ray walk, in her violet dress, holding her favorite book on her lap, the blue-and- gold Keats." The thrill of . shock passed through Dasil almost electrically but he spoke softly. "Miss Shaw.' who was blind and could not read?" Charlotte looked at him with frightened eyes. "I—i never thought of IhaL" "What did you think?" "That she was tracing the leave! and flowers tooled on the cover with her fingertips. The design u beautiful." "What do you do with a oook if you can't read it?" demanded Basil. "Well." Charlolte floundered 'Sometimes you press a laded (lower or tern leaf between the pages." "And sometimet you leave a slip of pnper ihere lor sale keeping " added Basil, "if you were blind and wanted to ..eep a slip ol paper without letting anyone else see 11. what belter hiding pince than a book thai was kept under lock and key? Especially if it were a book you could always identify wiih your fingertips bcrause of the flowered design incised on the binding." • t • r l'IIK oooks were in boxes in the cellar, Charlollc's hand liem- bled as she he'-I a flashlight tor Basil. In the third box he searched he lound the Keats. He slid his fingertips under the spine at cither end and shooK (he book, letting the pngcs nutter. A slip of paper slithered out and coasted zigzag to the floor. Basil held it close to ihe flashlight beam. It was a grimy piece of paper and someone had scrawled across it hastily in an unlettered hand., ItcJ from J a r h IJnecrlri fo^~ what can those 'etters and :'\ _ „. mean?" murmured Cba'.--'' : ' totle.1i "If only Miss Shaw 'had . me.'" , ., Buil looked at C li a r 1 o i i't '" ..MH^hy""}- "flow can you b»,'f ?ur*t||J£S Shnw hcrsel! knew wiitt '. th'tyi' She couldn't re«d ? thu Mip of paper.
