Furlhei more he should have told !hc D e m o c r a t i c Administration here about the case, and let them take it out of his hands, instead ol permitting the justice department to find out about it Irom n newspaper, thus causing Murphy to rush up to New York last Wednesday and everything.

French of West Brownsville retired after 44 consecutive years o£ service with the Pennsylvania Railroad. He had been employed as a fueman and an engineer, the attier capacity for nearly 30 yeajs. lie never had a serious accident. It would not be so bad, but the young upst.irt did the sa-ne thing m the Whitney and Co^ter-Muiica cases. In both instances, Washington had a jiard but successful time in keeping him out of the limelight ns much ns possible, because after all, (as they say here not too loudly) both defendants confessed before anyone knew anything was wrong. (Apparently they refer to the Whitney confession extracted by the stock exchange and the indication that the first tip on the Musica-Coster case came from a suspicious treasurer.) There is no question whatever but that Dewey startc-d the Man ton case, but he will have to get credit somewhere else than Washington. Here they call him a publicity seeker. M. E. CORNE CHAPTER FORT? "NOW, MB. WITHERSPOON," Mac said briskly, "where are those shirts?" "Shirts?" Mr, Horace surveyed the room blankly. "I dropped them I somewhere--" "They're here, at this side ol the bed," Dr. Didmore, who had been yawning and gaping during the entire proceedings, indicated a spot at his feet. Mac walked around the bed and got down on all fours on, the f oor. And there, scattered' on the carpet, were the thirts. Four of them. They wete spattered with blood. "Doc!" barked Mac, "suppose Mr. Witherspoon. had not turned to the chair with the shirts?" The medical examiner cleared his throat importantly: "In chat case," he said, "the bullet would have penetrated the heart. The bureau is on an angle from the door. When. Mr, \Vitlierspoon swung around, the bullet grazed h.s shoulder, struck the glass and glanced off Into the woodwork," "So," said Mac softly, "so the bullet was meant to be fatall" And ' he looked squarely at Daphne Witherspoon. "But u-ho would wish to kill jnc?" questioned Mr. Horace in bewilderment. "I have no enemies--" "Neither, apparently, had your wife or your mother," Mac stated bluntly, "and your mother was jnurdered. Dr. Didmore performed Ihe autopsy this evening. Cyanide was found in the body!" "I see--" Mr. Horace seemed to shrivel before our very eyes. "I--I think, if yoj don't mind, I will go to my room." "Of course." Mac was at once conLrite. "Theie will be an inquest tomorrow afternoon. Will you please notify your household?" The wounded man nodded. With Phil's assistance he managed to rise from Uie bed, "By the way," Mac raided, his voice slightly, "may I trouble you for the kejs to your laboratory?" "The keys?" Something foreign flickered behind the colorless, opaque eyes of the uoundcd man. "The laboratory 's never locked," he said slowly, "never." "Thank you." Mclntyre bov.ed. "M'.ss Daphne, will you assist your fa her to his room?" "Come along, father." Daphne took her place at his side. "Coming-, Mac?" Phil clasped my hcnd. "Go along, children." He motioned us av.ay. "I'm slaying here for awlulc. I have--something to "Tina is sure turning 1 out to be one honey of a case!" remarked Phil, blowing great clouds of srnoke into the already polluted air of my bedroom. "One suspect afCcr another goes down the drajn! Looks now like it has to be one ot the guests--or Duphnel" "M.iy I have a cigarct, please?" I tc-,-k the pack from lits pocket. 1 did not feel up to d.scufsing 1 Daplme's guilt or Innocence. 1 liad Phil clasped my hand and \ve left the room. defended her so furiously in thei past, and now--I did not know--! she had done so many queer things. ; Deep m my heart I still believed i in her innocence. I guess that is why I had not mentioned the meeting in the arboretum. I would give her another chance--though I did not put it quite that way--I would not give her away--not yet. ''Thank God, we're safe for tonight!" I said presently, and thankfully. Chief Ellis had sent for and received half the town police force, who, even at the moment, paraded the corridors and grounds of the Manor. It was a comforting 1 sight, believe me, the club and the gun and the blue uniform! Phil hazarded: "Don't think there'll be any more fireworks tonight, baby," "I hope not!" I had had enough excitement for one night and for one lifetime. I stifled a yawn, "Wonder what Mac has up his sleeve?" I said sleepily, Phil frowned. "He haa something, you may depend on that! Mac isn't a cautious Scotsman for nothing." "He's staying upstairs a long time. What in the world can he be doing;?" "I don't know--but I'm going to find out!" He lumped up, determination, written on. his face. My drowsiness vanished, "Not without me! 1 ' I said. 'Tin going; wherever you go." "0. K., kid. I'm going: to the third floor. Come on!" Once again the Manor slept. The corridor, save for the blue,-clac figures of the policemen on guarc at the head of the front and back stairs, was deserted. The door to Mr. Richard's room was closed. Phil opened It without Mac Mclntyre atood before the Bureau, his arms filled with shirts! "What the--" exclaimed Phil, and the detective spun around on his heel, dropped the shirts and clasped his hand to his shoulder. "So!" he muttered, "so!" He bobbed his head several times; he gave a grunt of satisfaction. Ha paid us no attention whatsoever. 'Is the man mai?" demanded Phil of Chief Ellis who from a chair by the window regarded hia colleague's peculiar antics unmoved. EUis shrugged. "He's been doing that for fifteen, minutes." Mac made no explanation. He was staring at the four shirts spread out upon, the rug. On his face was an expression of rapture, as though he gazed into the eyea of a newly discovered and awakened love! Then, with a quick move- me^nt he scooped the shirts into hi? arms. "Where's that coat Didmore cut from Mr. Witherspoon?" he de- mandcd of the chief. "It's around here somewhere-there--on the chair!" ftlac exchanged the shirts for the coat The latter he examined critically. One shoulder had been cut away. The aagged piece of material he subjected to minute scrutiny. "Well," he said at last. "Wei]." The fire left his eyes. He looked worried, puzzled. "What's going on, Mac?" Phil asked petulantly. "You kids still up?" He glanced around at us, "Come on!" urged Phil. "What sort of bee's in your bonnet?" "Bee ?" Mac shook his head. "The bee has turned into a dodo bird, Benson! I'm all ivct, I guess, and yet--'* He shrugged. "Guess maybe I'm getting old I" (To Bo Continued SALLY'S SALLIES Cupr. 1539, Ku-R Features Syndicate.

WILKES-BARHE, Feb. 3.--The court scheduled a man for double duly heie. He was drawn for a jury. Then it was learned he was a defendant in another case. He was c'.ism.-ssed from the box and led to the other courtroom. The wage-hour administration is planning enforcement on wheels. It asited the budget bureau for several bundled automobiles to equip 603 inspectors who are to go about the country inspecting industrial plants to see if they are living up . to the wage-hour law. The budget I turned down the automobile part of it, but left a provision whereby the inspectors ivill be paid four cents a mile by the Government in their travels, if they have a car. About half the 100 inspectors now employed have cars under this arrangement and it is assumed the coming self- motorized wage-hour patrol of 308 will be similarly equipped when they start in June. Urges Colonies' Return. TOKIO, Feb. 3.--The Japanese newspaper N.chi Nichi warned Britain and France "to return promptly the colonies they robbed from Germany if they desire peace." Almost G00,000 unemployed persons in Pennsylvania received a total of 8,371,714 pounds of Fedeial surplus food commodities, worth $652,464, during December, 1938, It was announced today by Arthur W. Howe, Jr., replaced State Secretary of Puo- lic Assistance. This raised the tree food distiibu- tion to the unemployed in Pennsylvania during 1D38 to 75,661,721 pounds, with a retail value of approximately $3,600,000, as against a distribution of 30,000,000 pounds, having a value of approximately $1,160,000, curing 1D37, Each of the 13G,858 families, totalling 582,263 persons, served in December received free food commodities valued at $4.77, at a distribution cost to the Department of Public Assistance of 22.77 cents per family ca.-,e. or a total d.s- tribution cost of $31,101. D. P. A. distribution cost during December, 1938, was 37.2 cents per httndred-we ght, as compared xvith 30.9 cents per hundredweight for the pievious month. COKE OUTPUT IN DECEMBER AT HIGH MARK Continued from Page Nine, cent. They were, however, more than 1,000.000 tons in excess ot reserves at the end of the year 1937. Elver commerce in all coke via the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers rose 20 and 0.5 per cent, respectively, while shipments over the Ohio River dropped seven per cent. At 178 coke yards deliveries increased 52 per cent and stocks dropped 11 per cent. Prices lor the most part remained unchanged. Cor.nellsville foundry coke increased five cents per ton during the month while sulphate o£ ammonia advanced one cent per 100 pounds. December, 1S38, coke tonnage in Pennsylvania amounted to 44,020 or a gain of 20.2 per cent from the No-\ vember, 1938, total of 36,600 ana a sharp decline Irom the December, 1937, amount o£ 89,800. The beehive coke prices at ovens were: Connellsville furnace, $3.75 per ton, the same as for November, 1938, but a drop from the $4.37 figure in December, 1937; Connellsville foundry, $5.05 per ton, a gain of one per cent from the S5.00 mark the preceding month and a fall of 30 cents rom the $5.30 obtained in December of 1937. less than the quantity distributed in November, 1938. This decrease was due principally to the distribution of fresh vegetables and apples having been completed during November. The percentage of eligible general assistance and dependent children family cases supplied in. December was 90.5 of the department's caseload. This was an increase of 1.4 per cent in caseload coverage as core- paied with Novembei. The total number of families served was 7,855 more thf.n those benefited in November. Little Time for Pleasure. CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Feb. 3.-Repotting that the average WPA while collar worker averaged only one-tenth o£ n minute a day on civic and political activities, Harvard bocioiogists suggested "this figure thiows a rather sinister light upon t:ie present status of our democracy." The report revealed that "ail pleasureable activities" occupied one and a half hours of Die studied workers day. Beloved Storeman Dies.
