Beyond It stood a row of houset spotted here and there with lights. Through the roots of the hedge they caught glimpses ot green turf »nd a flower bed. Above this garden was another house like the others. Once Basfl Willing stopped to look at something in their path. A little ball of muddy feathers, wings trailing, claws curled, eyes half-open, dull, motionless. A dead bird. Frank Lloyd caught his breath. "Is this the place? Where no bird Jings?" /TuSastl nodded. • v -But why?" Basil made a motion for silence. They went on t o where the hedge ended In a tall clump of shrubbery. That, and a patch ot light on the path ahead, warned them they were close to the house. B.isll divided two branches of elderberry bush and held them apart He was even closer to the house than he had expected. Through the mass of leaves he could see clearly into the windows that were lighted and open. The black figure ot a maid crossed his line of vision, pulling finishing touches to a dinner table glitter- Ing white with crystal and silver, wreathed with white roses. Other lights blared suddenly In bas vnenl windows directly below Basil looked down Into a lone! narrow room with yellow walls furnished as a chemist's laboratory. Against the farther wall stood a row of small, barred cages. A man In a chemist's smock stood with his back to one of the windows pulling off robber gloves He turned his head as he cast them aside. Light glanced from unooth, MMriM^ tr NEA Suitor, he. fair hair and now Basil was looking at the calmly purposeful face ot Dr. Zimmer. "TJOT Zlmmer'i home Is MI West Eleventh!" whispered Lloyd. "We didn't cross over from West Tenth." Again Basil motioned silence. It was when he searched hij street map for a street initialed "W. S." that he had discovered the truth While th< first block of Eleventh Street west of Fifth Avenue was backed by West Tenth Street, other blocks were backed by thoroughfares like Greenwi. h Avenue, Hudson Street, or V.'TC- wick Street Z i m m e r ' s block wasn't * square at all, but i triangle, and th« rear windows at Zimmer'j house on West Eleventh looked toward the rear windows of houses on Warwick Street—not West Tenth, ss Basil had assumed before It became important. Like most New Yorkerj who pats their lives uptown, he thought of all east-west streets >i numbered in regular sequence and all thoroughfares as running north and south. Bui in this paradoxical part of town where the west coast of Manhattan Island swerves sharply to the east, the river to the west was < lied the North River, some thoroughfares ran northwest to southeast and city streets were capriciously patched and interrupted by the lanes and cul-de-saci ot a fossil villaie called Greenwich. Zimmer spoke loudly enough to be heard by those watching outside the open basement window. "Otto!" Otto's voice answered in German. "Coming, Horr Doktorl" And Otto himself stepped into the brilliantly lighted picture framed by the window. He, too, wore a smock and rubber gloves. Zimmer went on in German.

There's very unstable compound in that open flisk." 2'MMER stepped out of sight and a door slammed. Otto moved out of the window frame. Basil and Lloyd heard splashing, as if he were washing vessels at sink; then footsteps, as if he were putting things away on shelves. At last he appeared in the window again. He paused before one of the cages and spoke in the same imperious tone that Zimmer had used to him: "Quiet brute!" He poked something through the ban. Ther» wae a shrill squeaking, th«n silence. He walked away and th« lights went out "What now?" whispered Lloyd. Wait. That's what we're here for. And don't even whisper." Three oblongs of light shone suddenly on the turf beyond the shrubbery. Otto was dressed and lighting lamps in the drawing room. He spoke in English now '•If you will wait a moment," Madam." * She crossed the lighted window —Rosamund Yorke— ra liantly fair in diaphanous white with a crimson cloak that she tossed aside "Take it upstairs for me, otto will you?" ' Hosanitind Yorke moved across the room. Through another window they saw her sit down and light s cigaret. Then Dr. Zimmer, fully dressed to the usual gardenia, came hurrying Into the room. He greeted Rosamund warmly, and then exclaimed: "Rosa, is this wise?" "Why not?" her laugh rippled to «ie men who were listening outside the window. Dr. Zimmer took both of ROM- mund'i hands and held them. "But ___ <t» Be Continued)
