Ash Street To 111 NORTH FIRST STREET XXI ~r\AGGETT said impatiently, *J "Oh, look here, Greg, you know perfectly well that our friend does not intend to return to that shack." He turned his head. "Where are you going, by the way?" "I have no idea," the stranger admitted. "I am footloose and fnncy free." He shifted his position in order to case the injured wrist, which he displayed as prominently as possible. "Does it give you much pain?" Daggett inquired with an exaggerated solicitude that made Greg suspect that the old man shared his doubts about the seriousness of the injury. But why was Dasgett playing the fellow's game for him? "I hardly noticed it." The stranger stifled a groan. "In a few days I'll probably be able to usp it agnin." Meantime, he implied, he was a helpless cripple. For a moment the old man ruminated. Then he leaped straight at the heart of the matter. "I hope," he said, "it isn't a major crime." Minor ones, he implied, he could take in his stride. This put it squarely up to the stranger, who leaned over Rupert and opened the car door. "Well, thanks very much for the lift, anyhow." "Just a minute," Daggett said haFtily, "I am not a policeman." "I am not a criminal," the stranger said hotly. "Just a victim of circumstances." Dapgett demanded abruptly. "Who arc you?" The stranger, who was toying with the ash tray, answered cheerfully. "I will answer to Hi or to any loud cry'but it might be simpler to call me Philip Kirby." Only four syllables, but they shook the convertible to its wheel.?. For a moment even Dassett was stripped of his self-possession. No wonder the voice had seemed familiar. Up to the past With his left hand, which had made a remarkable recovery, he produced a gold lighter. "I take it," Daggett remarked, "that you have gone into hiding." « * • TTIRBY'S pleasant voice did not •**• change but it was obvioul that he was annoyed.
