(NOW GO ON WITH THE STOUY) CHAPTER TWENTY-FIVE IN sriTE of the fact, that : knew I v.ould not Bleep a vvlnk, I crawled Into bed nnd slept drcam- Icisly nil the night. In the morning with the sun shining, I tclt better At nine ^o'clock, according to schedule, I opened the salon, thought it highly Improbable that the beauty business would be rush Ing--an unexplained death Is ap to put ti damper on the valncs woman'* vanity--but I hod been hired to operate the salon and Intended to carry out my part o the bargain Around the middle of. the morn Ing I heard a car chugging up th drive. It was Phil's Ford, with Phi himself nt the wheel and a strong man seated beside him. I ran dovvi the front stairs like a mod woman Hawkins was opening the door. "HI, there, Elsie!" shouted Phil He V.OR bubbling over with chcc nnd good spirits. "This is Mac Me Jntyre." he added, and I looked u into a pair of the bluest eyes had ever seen. "So this Is Elsie Rlttcr!" Ma Mclnlyrc said, and his blue eyes began to twinkle I could not sa a thing; I was stricken dumb wlUi surprise. Mac Mclntyrc, as a dc tcctHc, was a shock and a dlsap poinlmcnt. He was a tall, gunglin figure of a man with long arm that dangled from his coat sleeve and long legs that dangled from h! trouscr cuffs. Setubbcd an pressed and dressed In his Sunda best, he reminded me of a farme ,ln town for Uic day. Somehow expected to sec the hayseed cling Ing to his hair. Not that Mac looked especial; dumb, or especially bright, for tha matter. But he did not look Ilk my idea of a Chicago man-eater! "Will I do?" he asked,' and blushed to the roots of my red ho] I had been guilty of staring at hi: "Don't let Mac kid you," Ph sold "He's a notorious lady klllc In Chicago, they say, he owns th finest collection of etchings chorus girl was ever Invited to In spcct' · I smiled uncertainly and extent cd my hand One of u 1 ! was beln taKcn for a ride, and I had a hunc It was little Elsie. "Did you wish to see someone? Hawkins addressed Phil. "I'd like to sec Mr. Horace With spoon. Benson of the Times ' Mr. Wlthcrspoon Is at break- it Will you wait In the library?" ·I will. Thanks." And to Mac ind me: 'Come along, gang" We I followed Hawkins along the orrldor Into the library. I could ardly wait for the butler to get ut of sight to oak the questions lat were seething through my rated brain. "Phil, did you find any- Jilnjr?" He glanced swiftly around the oom "I found plenty. Elate," he aid softly. "I found murder!" * · * "I want you to begin at the bc- Innlng and tell the whole story s you remember It," said Mac Mc- ntyre, as we sat waiting for Mr [orace to appear. "Don't skip a hlng because you think It's not im- ortant; in a murder case every- .hlng Is Important. Everything!" "All right." I settled myself ore comfortably In an armchair efore the llrcplacc. "I'll try But rst, for Pete's sake, tell me something 1 How was Mrs. Horace lllcd?" Mac grinned wickedly: "Perhaps we have been a little lax, Elsie. ] Suppose you explain, Benson. After all, it's your show." "Anything to oblige a lady," Phil aid, passing around the cigarcls 5fou sec, baby, It was this way Dldmore performed A second and more thorough autopsy this rnorn- ng. This time he knew what he tvas looking for--and he found It Cyanide!" "Cyanide! I thought that was a "OS!" "It's a poison that works as a gas. Taylor knew vhat It was the minute I explained the clrcurn sUmces we discussed last night. Hi jave me all the dope. This is th way cyanide works: a tiny pine] of the stuff kills, and kills Instant y, and because such a smal amount is required to cause death t is difficult to detect by autopsy Dldmore found minute traces in th heart and lungs." He continued: "Cyanide, as I said, works as a gas It is i an acid, and this acid forms gas, o 'umcs, which enter the heart an .ungs and suffocate the victim Even when taken Internally, Tay 16- says, the action is the same "And the odor?" "Bitter almond! And the beaut ot It Is that the odor lasts only short while. Had you raised th hood ten minutes sooner than yo did the odor would have been quit marked. As it was, you got only faint whiff, enough to make yoi sneeze." "But"--I was still puzzled-"how was the cyanide used in th case?" 'Simple, darling. Here's the wa I figure it: The murderer fastcnc a pinch of the poison to the Insit of the drier hood by means of th tissue and adhesive strips. Frcv ously he had disconnected three i the driers to Insure his victl; choosing the right one. All unsu peeling, you, Elsie, tied the victin into the contraption and threw th switch. Almost Immediately th air fanned the paper, the cyanld formed Its poisonous gas and pre to! the thing was done. Later th paper and tape were removed practically foolproof murder 3 vice!" "How awful! Why--why, I klllc Mrs. Horace! I killed her!" "You made an obliging tool fe X," ho said. "Tho whole thine gcniously planned nnd carried ut. And that's the hell of It! AU had to do was to bolt the trap, o time alibi was needed, for X dn't have to be on the spot to immit the crime!" "A very clever one, our X," odd- d Mao. "If you, Elsie, hadn't found tat scrap of paper, and If the per- jn who stole It had let well enough one instead of drawing our at- ·ntlun to its Importance--" "Bjt I found that paper before trs Horace was killed!" "I know. Your tissue had coth- ig to do with her death. Your tl«- ue t eld the poison that killed Mrs. Plthcrspoon, senior. I shuddered. "Then she was mur- ercd'" detective nodded. "We arc radically certain that snc did not le 8. natural death. However, until 10 body Is exhumed and an au- opsy performed, we arc forced to issumc that she died of a heart at- acli. In the meantime we will con- cntratc on the daughtcr-ln-law'i cath." "J see," I said, and strangely nough 1 felt neither shock nor ion or. Perhaps I was becoming In- ircd to both. Somehow the fact ha", the dead body ot Mrs. With- rspoon, so recently laid to rest, wai to be taken from the ground-rudely and unceremoniously dug com the ground to be dissected and discussed upon a cold marbls lab In the middle of the night-affected me not at all. Perhaps, i 'ouiid myself thinking, perhaps in. a Ih.tle while I shall regard murder vitliout fear or emotion, seeing It as .1 game of hldc-ond-scek, with, the murderer at one base and our-j sches at the other. Funny, what! you can get used to--Is that not' vhut they once said of the men in trenches? Wow, Elsie," Mclntyre inter-, ruptcd my revery. "Suppose yotii begin at the beginning and tell mea few things." ·What is it you want to know?": 'Everything. Everything that! has happened in this house since, your arrival." "I'll try," I said, and began rny| story. When I had finished Mac's face was grave. 1 "A queer outfit, these Wither-) spoons!" he mused. "Each one ot them hiding something--" ' "Daphne knows plenty!" put 1ft _ Phil. "Without .half trying I couldj _ built up a sweet case against her."I ·She isn't guilty!" I flared. "Sho ." couldn't be--her own mother!" "Matricide isn't so uncommon."* ~ "Rubbish! Daphne was crazyi about her mother. Anyone could: see that!" Phil argued: "But If Mrs. Horace suspected her--" I snorted: "Mothers don't suspect their daughters, and even 1C ., they do, they don't give them away) to the police! I'd as soon suspect) Mr. Horace!",. i "I'm considering him, too," Phil) 'returned, unperturbed. "My mind! ~ Is open--" "And empty!" I added dryly. -- ·* Mclntyrc guffawed: "So you two! - arc already disagreeing!" - ! "Elsie is a sentuncntaUst,"-Philj said.

CARROLLTON, Mo, Jan. 17.-Two runaways from the State Children's Home calmly told police today how they killed a pleading old mnn to rob him, so they could "go out West." "He wouldn't raise his hands and I just up and shot him,' said OJivcr Hammond, 16. Cleo Ramsey, 15, nodded assent. All thej cot for killing J. W. S. (Jim) Bncken, 71, was $9. He lived alone on his farm near Leeton. Last summer he took In Hammond to woik for him When fall came Biicken sent him to school. The boy didn't like it and ran off to return to the Children's Home at Carrollton, 80 miles north of the Brickcn farm. The home takes orphans and neglected children, studies them, and tries to find them good homes The discipline is not rigid. But Hammond tired of it finally, and Wednesday enlisted Ramsey to set out with him for adventure. They hitch hiked, ate cheese and crackers nnd late Thursday they arrived at Bricken's farm. They spent the night in the barn. Friday morning, Hammond said, they waited until the old man walked a quarter-mile to the mail box. They slipped into the house. Hammond knew it quite well. He found the farmer's 22 caliber nfle The boys hid in a bedroom. Bncken sat down in the front room. Then Hammond came in, leveled the rifle and said. "Stick 'cm up." Brtcken didn't. So Hammond shot him, he said The small-bore bullet hit the old man in the chest and he feel. Hammond began tying his hands and feet while Ramsey ransacked the house Ramsey came back and helped Hammond finish the job Hammond said the old man pleaded: I don't want to die. If you le 1 me live I'll give you everything I have." They dragged and pushed him into the b 'i-oom, under a bed. They selected Bnckon's rifle, watch blanket and several other articles that might be useful on their "trip 1 Fot' they had decided to take his 1928 ·sedan At last, a bundle made up Hammond stopped at the door, aimed under the bed and shot Bncken in the head. It was a coup dc grace. But the ancient automobile brok down. The boys spent $4 of their $a "Out West" seemed farther away than ever. So they came back to thi children':, home Saturday Ham 1 mond explained that they had set ou for Colorado but thought better of it Home officials believed it beet to P A R A D I S E Special to Tha Courier.
