PITTSBURGH, Feb. 8.--An aggrieved Chamber of Commerce today hoped it h.id smothered City Health Director I. Hope Alexander under a barrage of rails it" unloosed on him from the United Stales Census report. Salving the bruises that had been inilicted by Alexandei sevei al weeks ago when he charged Pjltsburg.iers on the avcidgc died at an age 10 years under that of most city- dwellers, the chamber cited the census report ^to show that the average death age for Smoky City dwellers was 51.4 years, exactly the national average. Average death ages for some other Pennsylvania cities were: Erie, 55.5 years; Philadelphia, 55; Readm", 58.1; ard Scranton, 51.9. Replying lo charges contained in n petition recently filecl by Princess Licla of Thurn and 'A-.xis, Attorney Donald W. Higbee asked that a iu!e, issued on him January 11, be dismissed at cost of the plamlilT and that his appoinlment as trustee of Iwo trust funds be* given approval by the local courts. Attorney Hiflbcc denied nllfgotions made by the Princess and set forth no successor trustee had been na'r.cd to fill the vacancy caused by the death of the late Attorney \V. W. Par-shall. However, he decljicd lhat lie, himself, had been named to succeed the late Andrew A. Trompson, another trustee, in an appointment made June 28. 1037, by W. W. Parshall and R. J. Arnett, the tuistees acting at that time. Attoiney Higbee set forth, fuithcr. that approval by the court of the appointment is not prerequisite to its validity and declared he has been acting .15 trustee since June 28, 1937. The respondent denied that a; the present tune Ins firm are attorneys of record in all litigation against the beneficiaries under the trust agreement and declares that his firm has represented and does represent the trustees and has acted and is acting for the protection of the corpus of the ti usL Attorney Higbee also denied that he, as well as the firm oÂ£ lawyers of which he is a member, is and has been, for a number of years, unfriendly nnd antagonistic to all of the beneficiaries under the trust.

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 8. -- Geraldinn Sprcck'les, 23, whose deposition was read .n a Minneapolis will case here, sought a career as a motion picture actiess and night club singer after she divoiced hur second cousin, Adolph B. Speckles, Jr. CHAPTER FORTY-FOUR DOWN THE flights of stairs and through the kitchen we dashed pell-mell. I think Hawkins ajjd Mrs. Grcely, whom wo passed in the pantry, thought we had gone stark, raving mad. Mac, however, did not stop to explain. He grabbed Uie housekeeper by the hand and pulled her after us. The poor woman's feet flew over tile ground and she jnoaned and groaned, but had no choice but to follow. "Now!" said Mac, wheft we had reached the trash barrel. "When *was this last emptied, Mrs. Greely?" She gasped for breath. "A week ago. It is emptied every Thursday." "Then it hasn't been emptied since Mrs. Withcrspoon's death?" "No. The man will pick it up some time this afternoon." ' "Good!" He loosened her hand and began pulling great watls of waste matter from the barrel. With extraordinary pat.ence he -sorted through the unsightly mess. Then, as this method proved slow and tedious, he caught hold of the bottom and rolled the barrel over and over until the contents were scattered in a heap upon the ground. And in the end the search was for nothing-! There was no cyanide in the barrel, nor, according to scent, distinctly almondless, had there ever beer.. It was a depressed detective who began stuffing the trash back into its container. Bored, I turned away, when a shout from Mac shot md a foot into the air. He was holding some- tiling in his hand, and siaring at it. I moved closer. The something was a glove, a man's leather glove. It was a new glove, fleece lined. "Dear me!" Mrs. Greely frowned. "However did that get into the trash? That's Mr. Horace's glove!" "It is, eh?" Mac turned it over and over. "Turn the barrel again, Phil! I want to find the mate to this!" But there was no mate in the "barrel. "Is this all of the waste In the house?" Mac inquired of the housekeeper. "The baskets are emptied each morning," she informed him, making it plain that she considered his behavior outlandish. "Do you empty them yourself? 1 "Indeed not! The maids do thai work. I inspect the rooms after 'they have been cleaned!" "I see And each bedroom has a fireplace, has it not?" "Yes." "So the stuff might have been destroyed!" I inquired: ("Wouldn't it have smelled if it had been burned?" "Smelled? Oh--the cyanide! Yej, it would have smelled, and a glove would make ashes. Our murderer wouldn't have dared to take such a chance." I asked: "What's the glove got to do with the murder?" "I don't know, Elsie. Maybe nothing-. But I mean to find out." He stuffed the glove into his pocket "If my theory is correct--well, time will tell!" "What makes you so sure there's any of the poison left? Mightn't thr. murderer have used all of it?" He shook his head. "It stands to "When was this last emptied, Mrs. Greely?" reason the stuff is around somewhere. Didmorc says it takes only a pinch to do the work in those airtight driers. You can't buy a pinch, so there must be some left. And I have to nnd it btifore--" he stopped dead. But I knew what he was going to say: before another murder was committed! "Have you tried to find out where it originally came from?" I went on, determined to take advantage oÂ£ his mood to discover a few of the things he had been keeping to himself. "Naturally, Elsie. I've been, to every prescription and poison, dispensary in town. I've been in touch with the firm in Cincinnati where Mr. Horace buys his poisons. The answer is always the same. However," he brightened slightly, "Ellis is in Columbus this minute getting a line on drug stores and such over there. I've a hunch the murderer did his shopping out of town. In Columbus his purchase probably wouldn't be remembered." "But," Phil reminded him, "He'd have to sign a register." "Smith is always a good enough name for any register. Our only hope would be his description." "Which," added Phil discourag- togly, "you do not have." "Don't worry about that! "Ellis will check up on any and all purchasers of cyanide; but there won't be many, perhaps none at all, 1 ,' "Ahem"--Mrs, Greely cleared her throat--"ahem!" "Well?" asked Mac. "Really, Mr. Mclntyre!" bridled the housekeeper, "I can't stand here all day! I have my work to do!" "Go along! Go along!" "Well!" She withered him with a glance. She flounced primly into the house. "I'm off to town, darling," said Phil, and k.ssed me resoundingly upon the mouth. "Back later." And he set me down smartly, pinched my ear, and went whistling along Jie drive. Mac followed me into the house, and I left him below the stairs and went directly to my room. It lacked ten minutes until iunch time. I washed my hands and face and sat down at the dressing table to renew my makeup. First the foundation cream, then the powder-but--darn! My powder box was empty! A few fine grains spilled on to my swansdown puff. "The devil!" I exclaimed to myself. "Now wouldn't you know I'd run out of powder way out here in the country!" I would have to borrow a box from the salon. 1 stomped through tne connecting: door. There were several kinds of face pDV.'der stacked box upon box on the shelf in the second ante-room. I sorted through the pile until I- found my proper shade, and hurried back to-my room. I was upset, for I have my own particular brand of powder, and I unscrewed the top of the red and silver box, dipped rny punT inside and dabbed it to my nose. And then--then I sneezed! With tears streaming down my cheek I tore madly down the cor-' ridor clutching in my left hand the powder box and waving aloft my right. "Mac! Mac!" I shouted. "Coming, Elsie!" His voice sounded from somewhere in the lower corridor. "I've found it! I've found it!" 1 cried over and over. "I've found it!" "Found what, in Heaven's name ?" Mac bounded up the stairs three at a time, and at the landing we collided head-on. The impact flung- me heavily against the banister. I clung to the rail for dear life, coughing and choking in an effort to get my breath. "Here?" I thrust the powder box. into his outstretched hand.
