The night before Mrs. 'Horace died, did vou hoar Bounds in the salon?" "Not a sound," 1 told him. "And she was your first customer the following morning?" "Yes." "And Daphne knew that she was the first?" "Oh, why," I wailed, "must you bring her Into ItT I know she Is innocent!" "And the three driers were still out of order?" He ignored my outburst. "They were. I reported them to Mrs. Grecly, but the electrician never came to fix them." "Hum! 1 must sec the housekeeper about that." "All of which gets us where?" dcmiuldcd Phil, turning fidgety. "Don't be in a hurry, son," admonished Mac. "Rome wasn't built In a day! Hank and Pete will be hero shortly. 1 want to get a clear picture of these things In ray mind before they set to work." "O. K., master mind." I inquired: "Who Inherited the rest of the estate ?" "Mr. Horace," Phil said. "He Is to take care of Miss Henrietta during her lifetime. Outside of that he gts four or five millions to play aciout wlUi as he pleases." Four or uvc millions! There was not Uiat much money in the world! "Etut it's too lato--" 1 spoke my thoughts aloud "To late for what?" "Oh!" 1 blinked my eyes rapidly. "I was Just thinking that he is too old now to become a famous entist." "Scit.ntl3tl" Mac pounced on the word. "What's this?" "Why, It's nothing! Just a remark he made In my presence. He wanted to be a great doctor and scientist when-he was young." "And'why didn't he?" "I don't know." I wondered what Mac was getting at. oratory upstair ·He has a lab- "A laboratory? Good God, girt!" "Good God Is right!" echoed Phil "Elsie! Don't you know what a laboratory is 7" "Naturally!" My smllo was wintry. "A laboratory is ti place where experiments arc made. Why"--I broke off--"why poisons--" "Exactly," Mac sold dryly. "Pol' sons!" Then the door opened and Mr Horace came lntj the room. "I am sorry you had to wait so long." He addressed us collectively "J was detained." * "Perfectly all right.' 1 Phil went to him and extended his hand. "I'm Benson of the Times. "How do you do. May I ask the reason of your visit?" "Certainly. Mr. Wltherspoon. I come to get a story tor my paper, but"--ho added as Mr. Horace seemed about to speak--"1, really came to introduce a great friend of mine"--indicating Mclntyre-- "who Is a famous detective." "DotccUvo?" Mr. Horace looked befuddled. "Yes," continued Phil, "a detective. You may not have realized, Mr. Wltherspoon, that the members of your household are under suspicion of murder. Chief Bllla, although an honest and intelligent oQlccr of tho law, Is making no headway in the case--" Mr. Horace Interrupted: "But I understood there was no case!' "You were mistaken," 'Phil said quietly, and told briefly of the find- ngs of himself and Dr. Dldmorc. When he had finished speaking Mr. Horace looked as old as time. He groped for a chair and sank heavily Into It, "What can your detective do?" he said at last. Mac Mclntyrc stepped forward: I have no wish to Intrude upon your grief, sir," he said respectful- y, "but for your own sake, and the sake of your family, this business must be cleared up. Miss Rittcr Is under a clo"d of suspicion. She has lircd me a** a special investigator. I should like very much to have your permission to work m my own way In and about the Manor." "I sea." Mr. Horace sighed. "Suppose you find one of the guests or-or one of my family guilty?" "I can play no favorites," Mac replied. "The guilty party, whoever he Is, must pay the penalty." 'I sec," Mr. Horace repeated, and made an effort to pull himself together. "Perhaps you arc right," he said slowly, "perhaps you ore." He arose. "With Miss Rltter's permission, 1 should like to retain your services for tho family." "Oh, you have my permission!" I cried, and he thanked me gravely. "You will excuse me now?" he sold. "Of course." Mac bowed. "1 will talk with you later when you ore feeling better." · "Thank -you. 1 shall be at your service." And returning the bow, Mr. Horace walked slowly from the room. As no mode his exit Chief Ellis entered. "What's going on here?" he demanded, looking from one to the other of us. "Just a friendly conversation," Mclntyre told hlm- "Doc Dldmorc tells me wo have a murder on our hands, after ail. That right?" "I'm afraid it la." "And so you rushed out to warn tho household!" Ellis accused him. "You had no business to do that!" The Chicago detective shook his head. "I came out to talk with Miss Rlttcr. However, I've been hired as private Investigator for the Wlth- erspoon family. Mr. Horace nas turned the case over to me." "Has he?" Ellis was not pleased. "Thinks he'll pull the wool over my eyes, eh?" "Nothing of the kind!" Mac denied. "There's no need for you to feel hurt- Wo can work together.' "I don't need your help." Ellis would not be placated. "No? Well, something tells me It's going to be tough sledding finding the guilty party." Ellis disagreed. "A routine case,' he insisted. "Simple as A, B, C." "Got your warrant all made out, eh?" Mac kidded him. "N«vcr mind!" The chief,of police was not in a Joshing' mood. He went to tho door and stuck his head into the corridor. "Kama," called to bis unseen assistant* 'round up the members of th household and send them in one a,1 a time." He turned and sat down waiting. " ' "Any objections to my sitting in?" asked Mac. "Well"--Ellis hesitated, but the chance to display bis talent before such a noted audience was too much for him--"you can stay," h said, "but the other two go out." "Hey!" Phil objected, "I'm the press!" _ "O. K., Benson. Miss Rltter please wait across the hall." Mclntyro Intervened, "Elsie Is going to act as my secretary. Her hort-hand notes will be invaluable." "I'm a swell stenographer," I put n eagerly, and hoped and prayed would be able to remember my ong-ncglccted Business school raining. "Oh. all right." He consented to my remaining. "Sit over there and ceep quiet." "1 will," 1 promised meekly, and retired to the spot he Indicated, icking up a pad and pencil from Ar. Horace's desk. Karns returned to report: "They arc all In the drawing room," he said. "Who will you have first?" "Send In Mr. Horace," directed Ellis, and took his stand before tho ircplace. Mr. Horace entered, looking, 11 )0sslblc, more bewildered and more ipsct. "Now, Mr. Withcrspoon," the chief began, "1 wont to. ask you some questions. I understand you iavc already heard "of the discovery of cyanide in your wife'* K)dy."--Mr. Horace nodded--"and of our suspicions regarding the death of your mother--" "My mother!" Mr. Horace lifted dazed eyes to those of Ellis. "I wasn't told--" "No?" Ellis glanced to Mclntyre. Tm sorry to be the b'earcr of bad news, but the fact Is, we have reason to suspect that Mrs. Withcr- spoon, senior, was also poisoned. 1 have put through an exhumation request to the proper authorities. Before long we will know definitely whether or not we have one or two murders MI our hands." The little man turned quite pale. "You ore going--to--to disturb my mother's grave?" Ellis Bushed: "I'm sorry, but I'm afraid we must. Surely, if your mother was murdered, you want to know it? You want to avenge her death?" "Avenge!" Mr. Horace passed his hand across his forehead. "Don't think me heartless or lacking in family pride, Mr. Ellis, but 1 am afraid vengeance does not appeal to me. Were it left to me, I should drop the matter. All this publicity --policemen running through tho house--my guests and my family subjected to questioning--1 don't like it! Vengeance cannot bring tho dead to life. Let them lie in peace." JThat's all very well," Ellis agreed, "except for one thing: the living!" "The living?" "He means," Interrupted Mcln- tyre smoothly, "that when a man commits a murder he becomes a murderer. To quote an old adage, a man who has once tasted blood is apt to figure that he may as well be hung for a sheep as a lamb; In ' other words, Mr. Witherspoon, he will kill again--and again!" \ "You aro afraid that the murders will continue?" "Exactly." Mac crossed his long legs and leaned forward. "Somewhere in this bouse," he said slowly and distinctly, "there is a killer! And somewhere in this house there Is a man or a woman who knows the Identity of this killer! Oh, he or she may not be aware of this knowledge," he amended -hastily, as Mr. Horaco ' seemed about to speak, "but sooner or later something wul happen to remind them of It- Something will recall this hidden and unsuspected knowledge to mind. And when that happens--well--a man who has killed once does not hesitate to kill again!" (Xo Bo Continued) C H. S. NEWS OF THE DAY High Test Grade.
