(Central Press) CHAPTER FORTS-ONE "WHAT ARB you looking for?" A J hll asked Mac. "It doesn't matter now." Mac refused to be baited. He managed a grtn. "tattle boys, Philip, should be seen and not heard. Anyway, the less you and Elsie know, the better." "That's what you think!" "What are you kicking about, Benson ? Haven't you got tt all over on those other news hounds who've been hanging around and not even getting inside the gate?" "I'm not kicking I only want to know--" "What did Minnie have to say?" 1 Interrupted. If Mac really were on the Inside track--well--I was not overly anxious to bave Phil join Jinn. "A little knowledge is a dangerous thing" is one saying with which I heartily agree, "About the same aa Mr. Horace, Elsie, Says she w-as pass.ng through the hall and heard the shot. She opened the door and found Mr. Horace lying on the bed. Then she ran." "What was she doing in the hail at tliat tnr.e of night?" Mac's eyes twinkled,. "You have a rival, Elsie! She was sort of hop- i^S". ^ gathered, to catch sight of Ludwig!" Phil exploded: "Romance murder, eh? My God!" I persisted: "Didn't she see one?" "She says not. She was climbing the back stairs when the shot was fired. By the time she reached this room the intruder had fled." "But how did she know which room to enter? And why does Mr Richard live up here among the servants?" "His permanent quarters are on the second floor," Mac explained "When the houso is filled with guests he moves up here. The count I and Toddington and that actor: chap are on this floor also. I don't' know the answer to question num.- · ber one. Perhaps/' he grinned wickedly, "perhaps Minnie is psychic." He turned to the chief. "Getting late, Ellis; we'd better mosey along." "I'm staying- here tonight," the chief said. "If there's any more shooting, I want to be on har.d." "Well, that's not a bad idea. Guess I'll curl up in the library. Benson, you drix e Didmore Into to\vn. He's waiting somewhere below." "O. K , Mac, I'll round him up." "What about Richard?" 1 Col- lowed them outside. "Will he be released?" "He'll be all right," Mac issured me. ' Now get to bed and be sure to lock your door!" "Then--then the danger Isn't over?" "Oh, I wouldn't say that." He patted my arm. "No one is going to hurt you! Just pays to be on the safe side. If anything scares you. yeJU" "Sure!" I smiled weakly, "I'll ycH. But can't I come down to the library and stay with you?" "Why, Elsie! Such a suggestion at ray agej" "Please!" I begged. "You aren't really scared?" He jlirted my chin and looked straight ilnto my ees. I nodded, unashamed. "Will you bel*eve me when I say jthat you re in no danger as long as you Lock your doofand keep out of the way?" I quavered: "Out of the way?" "No one Is after you, Elsie. Just remember that. No one is after you!" '*Then--then you know who shot Mr. Horace?" I faltered, glancing fearfully up and down the hallway. "Walls have eaio and they have eyes," he answered me strangely. "Get along with you! And don't forget what I told you--no one is after you!" * * * They brought Mr. Richard and Toots Lemome out to tho Manor in the morning. From my bedroom I saw Karns drive In with them. I finished dressing and hurried to the library. Mac and Phil, who must have flown out to ainve so early, stood before the fireplace talking. When they saw me they shut up like two clams If I had not been so excited at the return of the other pair, 1 might have been plenty peeved at the way they were holding out on me; as it was, I was too thrilled and happy to bother. "So, you 1 re still alive!" Mac greeted me. "Guess you aren't important enough to murder, eh?" I made a face at him. "Mr. ILch- ard is here!" "So?" He was not at all surprised. "Baby, I have great news.'" Phil whirled me around in his arms. "The Chicago Blade" wants me to handle the murders exclusively! Trial and everything!" "Oh, haw--" but I could not say wonderful. The trial! He had said the trial! Somehow I had not thought of trials and courtrooms and--hanging! Two women had been murdered in cold blood ; third had been fatally wounded. Eye for eye, tooth for tooth! I shivered. A living man, a living woman --he or she must pay the penalty! "Here we are, chief!" Karns burst in upon us in his usual cyclonic manner. Mr. Richard and Toots came after "Where's Ellis?" He peered about in some surprise. "I'm right here!" the chief, puffing and panting, appeared on the cene. "Morning, Ellis," said Mac "Have a good night?" "No!" "And good morning to you!" Mac bowed to Toots. "Cut the comedy!" growled tha' young woman. A night in jail hac not improved her disposition. She flopped into a chair. Jail hac not improved her looks either, '. thought with inward rejoicing. Her blond hair was Lmp and waveless the strong morning sunlight re vealed a criss-cross network o; wrinkles about her nose and eyes Young Richard, on the other hand, though pale, seemed out \vardly at least none the worse foj wear. He nodded to me, and askec for a cigaret. I passed him my pack and he lighted one and inhaled hu grily. "You might offer me one!" Toots said sharply. "J been In the jug- too, y' know!" I tossed her one cfgaret and she gave me a mean look and stuck i between her lips. Phil struck a match and held it out to her- "You aren't going to get away with thi fake arrest, copper," she said, flip ping the match into the fireplace "I'm gonna sue this burg fo plenty.'" "I wouldn't do that if I wer you." Mclntyre teetered back anc forth upon his heels. "No? And why not?" "Folks around these parts aren' partial to receivers ot stolen goods " She tossed her head. "You can't prove a thing on me! I don't know what you're talking about!" "Maybe I could jog your memory--" "Oh, cut it, Toots!" Mr. Richard put in wearily. "I stole the emeralds." "Why you!--" Toots was on her feet. "Easy!" Mac stepped between hem. "Let's have your story, Witherspoon." The boy ran his fingers nervous- y through his hair. "Might I hav« nother cigaret? Thanks" "He can't double-cross me!" creamed Toots, struggling to escape Mac. "I didn't have a thing to lo with it!" . . . T suppose you are holding the ewcls for safe keeping, eh? 11 cored Mac. "Wtll, Witherspoon?" ·I"--Richard wet his lips--"I stole the emeralds from the salon .he night of the ball. I didn't plan ,o steal them. But when I saw them there on the table and no one n sight--" "Wait a minute! Where was Miss Rittcr? What time was this?" "It was around nine-thirty, 1 think." "Nine-thirty!" He whirled upon me. "Didn't you tell me you were n the salon every minute that evening?" "I--I"--1 felt my tace turning red--"I never said I was." "Good God! Do you mean to say you did leave the room?" "Yes, I did!" I admitted, and a ;reat load rolled off my mind. "I was downstairs in the pantry from nine-thirty until ten." Phil ad Jed hastily: "She was with me. It was my fault." Mac ignored him. He demanded: : 'Then you weren't present when Mrs. Witherspoon died?" "No," I confessed miserably. "She was dead when I returned." "Why in the name of Heaven didn't you say so ? Scared, or what?" 'Well--" I hesitated. Surely Mr. Horace would expect me to remain silent no longer. I plunged on, anxious to exonerate myself. "Air. Horace asked me not to mention my absence." "Mr. Horace, eh? What was the big- idea?" I tried to explain. "He thought it would complicate matters, I didn't understand exactly, but I didn't see any harm--" "You wouldn't!" Mac laughed nastily. "Witherspoon! Was your grandmother dead when you entered the salon?" "Yes," the boy confessed, not lifting his eyes. "You see, I knew she was there, getting fixed for tha ball. I--I was desperate for money, I meant to ask her once more--" "Then you had tried to borrow from her?" The boy nodded: "I tried--she refused me. I couldn't tell her why I needed the money. I couldn't"-he broke off--"I couldn't tell he* that I owed it to a loan shark." Mac barkec: "How did you know she was dead?" "I--I called to her. The drier waa making so much noise, I couldn't seem to make her hear." He moistened his lips again. "I lifted the --hood and--and she fell forward into ray arms. I--I listened to her heart. I discovered that it had stopped beating." Has voice rose wildly. "Then I saw the emeralds* I--I put grandmother back under the helmet and--and took the emeralds." To Be Continued) By PAULMALLON 3#' Continued from Page Four. basically sound find should be continued. The cool official dignity oE the letter sugA'^sted he did not kncnv the people ve'-y well. It stfirted off "Dear Mr. Evnns" and concluded abruptly -- not c\en a "youis vciy truly."

Rui»53a in his ReichsUig denunciation of all adversaiies. The possibility of a deal still looUs fair from here, . . Threatened congressional investigation of WPA is out. Republicans intended to foite it but the Administration has wriggled out of their clutches. Changes already made and contemplated by CongrcFS in WPA law, plus the removal of Hopkins, leave nothing current lor the Republicans to dig into. The conference o£ wheat farmers was 44 "uhcat frimers'' of whom 22 arc in the AAA. Eleven were AAA state commiHeemen, appointed by Mr. Wallace and paid by the AAA on a per diem bas s. Another 11 were AAA county commiltcemen elected by farmers cooperating m the AAA piogrom and paid by the AAA on a per diem basis. The remaining 22 are not connected with AAA at picsent/ although some of: them are former committeemen. Tms is not necessarily an indication that Mr. Wallace i slipping. It is true that at the conleience of cotton, farmeis here a few weeks earlier, a majority of those present to approve the AAA were AAA employes, and the issue was never in doubt. But Ihe announced letter to Mr, Evans justified Mr. Wallace's ]udg- ment in taking the ns" of having no mote than an even half of ths con- feiencG in his employ. The letter would have been a shock to him and to Mr. Evans only if tl'c result had been different, as they paid the railroad faies of the entuc 44 to and from Washington. N. B. "Weaver Dead.
