Friends estimate that in the past decad- Charles EertoJino, fisherman, has -·· ' ' 7 per:" from drc,,..:- ing. Thr-y hope to obtain a Carnegie medal for him. Application for n charter for Lu- r.orne Township Volunteer Fire Com- pnny, to be located nt La Belle, was Hied nnd hearing date was set for 3 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, February 14. by Judge linrry A- Cottom. The application set forth it was desired to create and m a i n t a i n a volunteer fire org.'miration for the fighting of fire* in Lur.ernc township and vicinity to foster goodwill, understanding and fellov.'in£ among the mem- be rs. Assets were set at S150 c.ish. Incorporriiors named include Lloyd Fitch, C. B. Lcichlitcr. Clarence McClinlock, Stephen D. Marecy, William Coiantoni, Joseph Roberts and Steve Varup, all of LaBelle, with these particular persons to serve the first year as directors of the organization. Suit for divorce was entered by Anna A. McdlSck, 50 Vine street, Un- ion'.ovvn, against Joseph Mcdlick, Edenborn. The couple married July 31, 1035, in this city and the wife charges her husband w i t h * cruel and barbarous treatment, indignities to person and w i i f u l and malicious desertion May 29. 1937. Mrs. Ardelia Hopkins filed answer with Prothonotary John J. Brady to charges made by her husband, Hilliard Hopkins, Continental No. 2, who recenty entered suit for divorce.^ The wife admitted they were married November 7, 1031, in- Uniontown but denied that by a course of cruel and barbarous treatment .ihe endangered her husband's life and, further, denied indignities to person which he claimed make conditions ir tolerable and life burdensome. On the contrary, she avers in contesting the divorce ac'joi, from ihe time of. their marriage, he conrtantly abused and mistreated h«r and, on August 21, 1937, knocked he-- down and severely beat her. Also, she says he fraudulently contrived to send her to Florida on September 28, 1937 and, since tha: time, has constantly refused to supp.n-t and maintain her or send her train fare so that she could return. Application for a charter Cor the Legion Club of Brownsville was filed by the law firm of Sherrard and Sherrarcl with Judge Cott'jrrr setting 10 o'clock Saturday, March..4, for a hearing on the matter. Purpose of the organization, if was set forth, is to foster '.he highest ideals of patriotism and devotion to the Government of the Unite.l States, to promote social intercourse and friendship among vetersans of the World War and their frie-jds and benefactors. Because a jury directed--hint to- pay costs in tiie case after Judge W. Russell Carr, at the last term of court, sustained a demurrer by defense attorneys for lack of insufficient evidence, John Pavlis, Filbert, was ordered to meet costs of 573.93 at the rate of $10 per month. Pavlis.was indicted on a charge of aggravated assault and battery preferred by Julia Tousel, Republic, as the result of an automobile accident July 3, 1938, at Filbert. The defendant told the court he could not raise the entire sum immediately because "I just got married "about a year ago and got too many bills." However, he promised to meet the costs in monthly installments. Why Not Try our classified columns when you want something? Kesults follow. CHAPTER FORTY-FI^B "GOOD LORD!" Mac stuck his nose into the powder box that held the cyanide. "Where did this come from?" "In the salon--second anteroom ahelf--" , . "The salon, eh?" Ho moistened his fingertip and touched it to the powder. "Genius, Elsie, genius!" he muttered, shaking his head, "How'd you happen to run onto it?" I told him and he nodded slowly: "Of course! The logical hiding- place! And anyone might have put It there. Anyone!" He stuffed the box into his pocket and helped me to my feet. "Keep this under your hat for the time being, girl!" "All right, Mac." "Telephone, Mr. Mclntyre." Hawkins appeared at the foot of the stairs. "I've put you on in tile library." "O. K., Hawkins, my lad!" Mac galloped down the stairs and slapped the astonished butler on tne back. "Come on, Elsie!" We'll see what Ellis has to say for himself!" In the library he closed the door and spoke slowly into the mouthpiece. I waited beaide him--on pins and needles. "Yes--yes--what? Are you positive? Well, I'll be a motikey's grandma!" He let the receiver fall noisily to the table, "Elsie," lie said, and on his face there was an expression of mingled stupefaction and amazement, "Ellis sa3's tlie cyanide was procured from that chain drug store on North High street, Columbus--and--and that the purchaser was--Mrs. Horace Withcrspoon!" "Atrs. Horace ?" I repeated stupidly. "How can that be?" "It could be, Elsie! It could be!".: Mclntyre'3 expression altered. It became stern, purposeful. "It fits! Oh, how beautifully it fits!" "What fits?" He was speaking in riddles again. "All the little pieces, girl! Every last one of them!" "Then you luiow--who la the murderer?" "Yes, I know." He sighed. "And I haven't enough evidence to con- vinca a jury of two-year-olds." "I began: "But how--" "By golly!" He slapped his .thighs. "We have one chance! One chance--" "Do we?" "We do!" He seemed to shake himself mentally. His eyes narrowed. I knew that he was speak- ing more to himself than to me, but I listened eagerly: "X will never in this woild confess--unless--" "Yes?" I leaned forward. "Unless he is caught In the act!" he concluded, clipping his words to staccato time. "The act?" I could only echo inanely. '.'The act of" murder, girl! The act of murder!" . "Oh!" I caught my breath -in my throat. "Don't be frightened." He" smiled at me. "It won't be as v bad as it sounds. I'm not going to let anyone else be harmed. When I say X must be trapped into committing a fourth crime, I mean that he must be given the incentive and the opportunity to do murder. Naturally, I shan't permit him to accomplish his purpose." I questioned fearfully: "Then X is a man?" "I'm using the pronoun collectively. He, or she, as the case may be." "How--how will you trap him?" "I don't know yet!" He frowned thoughtfully. "I have an idea--" Hawkins interrupted. He entered noiselessly. "Luncheon is served," he said reprovingly. "It is a quarter past the hour." "All right, Hawkins." Mac took my hand. "Come along, Elsie, we'll feed the inner man!" * * · The inquest took place that afternoon. It was held' in the Lawnville courthouse. I rode into town with.Phil and Mac. The guests and members of the household preceded us in tile family limousine. The servants brought up the rear in Miss Daphne's two-seater. The streets and sidewalks In front o£ the courthouse were crowded with curious onlookers who pushed and shoved and jostled themselves and us in an effort to catch sight of the principals in this town's most exciting and -stirring event since the day Lige Titus, the town drunk, chased his wife down Main street with a butcher knife! Henceforth IJge Titus must forevermore take a back seat. Murder among' the elite, among the very social Witherspoons, was a. delectable morsel for the starved tongues of the town. The butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker were with us en masse. They craned and crammed their necks; they pushed and pulled; they followed us into the courtroom. In the recounting of the affair, I have, I am well aware, omitted mention of the hordes of .curious men and women who stormed the gates of the Manor day after day. This omission, intentional, perhaps will be forgiven, if the reader will consider ihe state of my mind during the days and nights of my stay at the Wilherspoon estate. Murder is not a chummy affair, and I waa concerned only with .the preservation of my own skin and the.appre- hension and conviction of:, tile criminal. I was as isolated from the town and its inhabitants at though I were cast upon some desert island. Indeed, I had 'not set foot outsicie the grounds of the Manor since the Sunday evening f o l l o w i n g Mrs. Witherspoon'a death, when Phil had driven me into town to the picture show. Xow the crowds, laughing, shouting, even jeering, frightened -and annoyed me. Under Phil's protecting wing I ran Into the courthouse and took my place on the bench reserved for witnesses. The inquest was conducted by Dr. Didmore. Mac and Chief Ellis hovered in the background. A coroner's jury of farmers and tradesmen awaited instructions.- " The first half of the inquiry . proved dull and uninteresting. Witnesses were called. The guests, the servants, the family and inyself. Our stories were but a repetition of those which we had already related to the police. No reference was made to the arrest of Richard Witherspoon or to the- loss of the . emeralds. The' absence, of Miss Toots Lemoine was not commented upon. I - had begun to think the- whole business a vast waste of time, when the coroner cleared his throat importantly and summoned to the stand a total stranger to me. The man who shuffled forward was a huge, burly individual, with a bristling- red mustache and no hair. "Your name?" snapped Didmore. ."John Henry Herman." "Occupation?" - ·. . "Electrician," stated the stran-: ger, and a thrill of anticipation rah' % the length of my spine. The electrician! "Will you please to tell the court in j'Our own words the story of the" two telephone calls received by you- on the afternoon of the sixteenth, this month, and reputedly made by Mrs. Greely, housekeeper at the Manor." - - .
