DETECTIVES BRUCE: COfVRICHT BY LEO BKUCEt RELEASED tn CCKTKAL HES3 A3SOCIAT1OM BRAD THIS FIRST: Thrco famous detectives. Lori Simon. M. Picon, and Monalrnor Smith, are investigating the muracr of Mr*, filnry Tburaton. mlddJo-aecd wlf« of a retired English pbyalclan, found slutn In .bed during a week-end party at the .Thuraton homo near London. ThOM In the houso when Mrs. Thuraton retired were her husband: Townsend. the author; Williams, the family lawyer; Strickland, a sportsman, and the aer- Yonta. Air. Rider, the vicar, had been M dinner gucM. Threo piercing BcrcAma preceded the discovery of the traeedy. Mrs. Thuraton'a bedroom door wna bolted from the Inaldo and tho only open window, from which luvd been tossed the murder weapon, n Chlrcsc knife from the Thuraton hallway, was 20 feet from tho ground. ScrReant Beef, the local constable, also In on tho scene. Preliminary Investigation revealed Mra. Thurston had a stepson by a first mnrrlago who had a bad name and who hod not been heard ol for years; also that her bonk account suggested she may have DCon a blackmail victim. The detective* aro questioning tlio Thuraton cook. Stnll. tho butler. Ifl tho next witness. Stall admits ho was aware ot some sort of understanding between Mrs. Thurston and tho chauft'eur. NOW GO ON wrrn THE STOUT: CHAPTER 21 -YOUR ROOM la next door to that ot tho chauffeur, I think?" M. Picon still was firing questions nt tho butler. "That's right." "Did you hear him come to bed?" "No. I had a heodocho and wanted to sleep. "Do you sleep with the window open?" "No. Closed.' Lord Simon groaned. "So unhealthy." he murmured. But just then I received a shock of surprise. So, from all appearances, did StoJL For M. Ficon mapped an extraordinary question at him. 'Where did the ccreams come from?" he said, looking straight at the butler. · "Como. from? What do you mean? "Just prec/semenf what I say You heard the screams from your room. Where did it seem to you that the scream was madc? r "I ... I hadn't thought of it. I was half-asleep. I just heard three screams." "But where? Where? "Why, from Mrs. Thurston's room, I suppose." "You suppose! But of wha value to me, Amer Picon, is who you suppose? You are sure tha ithey camo from Mrs. Thuraton's 'room T' Stall seemed bewildered. "Wcl ... I hadn't thought of it With an impatient foreign sound, M. Picon turned away from him. "Forgive my chiming in," sale Mgr. Smith. "But a man may wned, were at this point a trifle onfused. And when under Lord mon'a kindly glance I tried to .xprcss them, they really did not ound very helpful. I was sure nougb on one point--that Stall new more than ho had admitted. thcrwlao f why had he lied about 10 time at which he received the oney? On Thursday, he had aid, but a few grains ot his snuff ere still on the dressing table hen wo examined It. Tho dress- ig table had a gloss top. In a ouso as well cleaned as this no, It would have been Impossible or it to hvo escaped Enid's dust- r on Friday morning. But why hould Stall have Ued? Surely he ould not have committed the turder, for ho bad been outside mt locked door almost as soon as ·o were. But then, so had every- ne else. At this point I saw a faint smile :retch the aristocratic lips above chime In as a bell may chime oul And did a bell chime out. Stall? -When?" "When the girl was having bys tcrics?" "Oh, then, tat me think. Yes The front door bell. II was th Vicar." Mgr. Smith was silent, and aftc A moment Sam Williams signed tc i the butler to leave. "Our most llluminatln' witness ito date," commented Lord Simon "He has certainly thrown som light on the subject," cold Picon. "And the bell which did not rin may b« Its curfew," soliloquize Mgr. Smith. It was at Uils point that th "cold buffet" promised to us b; tho competent Miss Storey wa produced. Stall wheeled in tw butler's trolleys, and supplied with food as urbanely as If had never thought of nhoutirj back his Indignant denials a fc minutes earlier. His manner wi once more Impeccable--such word as blackmail might nevi have assailed his lobclcss ears. The food, too. was excellent, remember eating three patties with as much gusto as poor Mary Thuratoa herself ha been there to press mo to onothc And with them I had a drink which I am extremely ton though gourmets tell me that should not bo thought of nt a til when one Is eating--a stiff wbJ key In a large tumbler, filled to c'brlm with soda water. I could sea Lord Simon ohud- ring at this. "My dear old boy," could riot help saying, "that's ath, youjknow. Absolutely bal- dcatb." ! | "It's never done me any harm," grinned. ' I bod realized that I as expected to bo something of fool--to catch tho lost finesse an Investigator's work one had st be that. "And I suppose you'll smoke a ;ar on top of it?" he breathed, though it hurt him. "I've every intention of doing "Then Lord help your stomach, 'hat do you think of the cose-- - far?" My conclusions, it must be ilty," said Lord Simon, "but there's a lot of Information I'm bonketto' after still. H« turned aside. "By tho way, Beef!" bo called across the room. The Sergeant's mouth was fun ot rabbit pic. but be made some answering sound. "Have you looked up tho record of our next witness--Fellowes, the chauffeur?" The Sergeant swallowed so violently that his throat seemed to distend like a chicken's. "Record?" ho said. "What record?" "Tho criminal record, of course," said Lord Simon, who seemed to enjoy discomfiting the Sergeant "Didn't know '« 'ad one," said tho latter sulkily. Lord Simon's chin. v "Everyone?" said Lord Simon. "Well, everyone except the 'tear and the new suspect. Miles. On the whole, I think it is prob- bly one of those two, though I on't sec how it can have been the r lcar, or where was he when we roko Into the room? And how- vcr clever a cat-burglar Miles 'as, how could he have climbed In r out of that window? And If he y any means used one of those opes to get In at the window bovc, how bad he escaped notice, and got out ot the /hotel after 0:30? Besides, what motive ould ho Iiavo?" · "Confuain', Isn't it?" said Lord Simon. I plunged on. I wondered about the cook. She was a determined sort of a woman, evidently with strong prejudices. And she had no alibi at tho time of the murder. Or Norris. What about Norris? No one hod seemed to pay much attention to him. He was on the jccno pretty quickly. But then -that might be in his favor. After all, he couldn't have come through ho door, and he hadn't had time a come round. Or Strickland? He slept next door. That was sus- ilcious, surely. But he had come mt of his room within so short a "There! It's a good thing I have Butterflcld with me. He was able to discover that Fellowes did a stretch of 18 months in prison four years ago, for burglary. Violent sort of business, I gather." '.'Can't know everything," mumbled Sergeant Beef. "And it 'aan't got nothlnk to do with the case, anyway," he added. Lord Simon shrugged. "Beef of the evening, beautiful Beef," he murmured. I moved across to K. Picon. The little man was munching happily, and quite elated. I could not remember him enjoying a meal before this, and was delighted to see tho color rising to his ovine checks. "Whatever else that Mademoiselle Storey may be," he said, "she [3 an artiste." .' ·' I hesitated to explain that with that term la our mixed language he had accused her of activities on tbo music hall stage, and nodded appreciatively. "Aro you beginning to get tb* hong of this affair?". I asked. "Get tho hang?" He laughed outright. "That Is a good phrase! But it Is not Papa Picon who will 'get the hang.' Pas do tout!" "I mean, do you understand tt yet?" . "I will tell you. I ace more light But what Is that? A'mote. A black spot. All Is not unclouded. But allons, man ami. All In good time. I, Amor Picon, have said so. And, presently, you will say--'All, why have I not seen that?'" "That's good. But tell me. Monsieur Picon, what did you mean by asking Stall where the screams came from? I thought that was such an extraordinary question." "An Idea, no more. Just a little Idea. Quite small. Quito little. But, voyons. We shall see. Sometimes even Amcr Picon has an childish, very But still an .1m c. along And there was no which he could have ledge climbed. Then thcro was Fol- owes. A violent sort of a chap, and as It appeared now, a bit of a Don Juan. An affair with Enid, and something of tho sort with Mary Thurston. "In fact." said Lord Simon, "you suspect everyone?" "Well, that's what It seems like. Though I don't see how any of them could have done it, really." "What about that stepson?" "Oh yes," I returned ingenuously, "I was forgetting that. Well, there again, thcro are several possibilities. I thought at first It was Strickland. But I'm not so sure now. Why shouldn't It bo Norris? Or Fellowes? Or Miles?" "Or even you," said Lord Simon quietly. "Well, it doesn't bappcn to be me," I returned, not caring much for tho remark, "but I see what you mean, of course." "At any rate, you flnd it all pretty puzzlln', what?" "Of course I do. Don't you?" "I have my moments of lucid- idea, no? Very simple, perhaps, idea." And that was all I could get out of him, Mgr. Smith, on tbe other hand, talked quite readily, though I could not call him in- f o r m a t i v e . Finding myself plunged into this role of inquiring and credulous fool, to whom the great investigators would voice their conundrums, I resolved to moke tbe best of it, and see whether he would add to my bewilderment, or elucidate it. "It's simple enough so far as it has gone, but like all mysteries, it haa not gone far enough. Don't you sco that that is what Is always puzzling--tho coso half- statcd, tho character half-formed?. The werc-wolf was the most terrifying creature In mythology because- it was half a man. The centaur was a horror because he was ' half. a beast. Tho trouble with most modern thought Is that It Is half-hearted ..." .-"But Nonslgnor Smith," I Interrupted, fearing that ho might, continue in this strain all tbe evening, "who do you think it was that actually used that weapon?" I thought my question was as direct as it could be, and must succeed In securing as flat an answer. "Oh, that's easy enough," cama the calm reply. "But we are trying to discover who killed'Mrs. Thurston."
