"Right up tiere, gentlemen." \A lion he had mo.-mted the steps, the f u l l horror of the situation burst suddenly upon th; two of us. Stretched out upon r h c floor of the h n l i w a y was (he form of n mun and it needed no second glance to prove t h a t he was dear]. Herman Gottlieb wa;i his name, Parkl'iitn told IIH. "Something tells mo that there has been murder here," I'hance muttered. "What did you tnink It was--suicide?" ft sarcastic voice broke In. 5 at once recognlz»d Servant Copse of the police force who had been assigned with Phanca to the famous "Oriole" murder case a few mouths before. Chance nodded with a light aU of aloofness. "Tut. tut, serge.iru," ha drawled. "It might be suic'.Je at that. You never can tell." He reached intr his pocket and, from a leather cust\ slowly and cnre- fiJIy selected a gold-tipped cigarette. "I wish," he continued reflectively, a ? he lighted the oisarette, "that the man wasn't dead, f might get him Into a poker sutue and ace it he had any Inclination toward suicide." Phance -was referring to his investigation of t h a "Oriole/ 1 murder case, during which he enticed the murderer into a fokrr game and determined from his actions, not only that. he \vas eaiHy, but that he was contemplating suicide as well.) His gray eyes fastened suddenly on the prostrate form,. th«n glanced at the open door behind It, and back once more to the bathrobe about the oaujwlered man. "Just come out: of the bathroom-eh, what?" he ejaculated. "Sergeant what does t h a t suggest to your mind?" "Nothing," replied Copse facetiously, "unless he'd enraced some one who 'was In the habi: of using the bathroom about sis o'clock In the morning tvhlch is t h o honr when the doctor says the murder happened." Phance smiled pleasantly out of his gray eyes. "Itenlly, serKernt, I'm gcttin' fonder nnd fonder of ;,-ou every case we're on. A most l u i e r e s t i n ' nnd valuable suggestion. TiVculii j'ou wind calllo' the landlady?" A moment ! itor .«ho was before him, proving to be a slatternly woman w i t h a Cockrey accent. Phanee flicked the nshcs carelessly from his cigarette before speaking. "Was tliis man GoUUeb who's just been k i l l e d , in tho habit of iisin' the bathroom more t h a n seemed necessary';" ho nslse 1 at last. "I frlvc you ny word, sir," siie n n s u e r r i i , "that I'.iore was a bit of com-| p l a i n t iimont; the lo'l.uors a b o u t his l u c k i n g the (K r just ut the time they ivaiiterl it.

" i '·What, ones of your lodgers fro to i work about six o'clock';'' Fhance i "There's only .Henry Toting, sir, the t a x i driver," she said. Chance timed with dramatic suddenness to Sergeant Uopse. "Call headquarters and orrler them to arrest Voting?" he directed. "There's your murderer"' It de-v«lipel, however, that the «r- j rest was never to be in a do. In the afternoon, when Phani'O nnO I were in I'a,rktwm'« office, Copsa entered snd hild of Young's death in a cab "I-ui-ky fur yon, Ptirkhnni," Phance rernarke J. "You'd never have convicted h i m lii spite of his truilt. Can you picture a mau enrafied ;it what he felt to l? o diabolical plot to keep him out of the bathroom each mornln' Just us lie .-ns gcttin' remly fur the day? At last, he could ondure the situation no longer. Unfatiiilinr w i t h bathroom technique. In- lay In wait arid sluw t h e man lie believed con- splrln' a^aii-nt him.

VPS, it's lucky for yon th'at you didn't Iiavo to attempt conviction." He lighted a frr-sh gold-tipped cigarette, "A most nmnxiln' caso," he resumed rtulceily, "hut the sort in w h i c h no jury would ever return ivny other verdict t h a n jtisn'llahle homicide."
