He would take a quick puff or two, then palm the cifiarel a& he held It behind his back. Johnny stepped »p to him. VMisicr," he said, "I've come to New York from Wilkcs-Bnrrc, Pa., to find my sister who ran away from home five years ago, come Candlemas Day." "I'll bet," said the doorman. "Her name," .Johnny went on, "was Alice Cummings and this was the Inst address we had of her." "Alice Cummings," mused the doorman. "Yeah, sure, I remember her. A good-looking babe—" "Naturally." "Oh, I remember her, all right. She had a little hard luck, I hear, and couldn't pay her room rent." "Poor Alice," sighed Johnny. "Alone in the grcnt city, no money, only a cheap mink-dyed alloy-cat fur coat to keep her w.irm." "She was wearing a real mink the last lime I saw her," retorted the doorman. "When was that?" "I sec this babe three-four limes .'i year, Doin' nil right, too, o. She w;is with young ..w-iuicl six-night months ago. Conic out of the theater there and it was ralnin' so cabs was st-arce and they came over here to grab one, I helped her in." • '•rmicluiol," said Johnny, . v,_i:'.;n't he Billy Car- n..wiinel, would It?" "Naw. Young Jess—you know, son of old Jew Carmichael who made a potful in the grocery business." "Oh, him. Well, well! Sis is doing all right. Thanks a million/' "Not a million. A buck'd be all right." "If I had • buck, which I haven't," retorted Johnny, "I'd invest it In the Carmichael Grocery Stores." Johnny signaled to Sam and they walked toward Seventh Avenue. "I'm glad to know the kid ain't starvtn'," Sam said. "Wouldn't it be swell if she'd marry a. fellow like this rich Mr. Carmichael?" "It would help U> distribute the wealth," said Johnny, "but it seems to me I've seen this Carmichael lad's name In the gossip columns. He geti around." THEY walked to Fifth Avenue and turned south. A few minutes later they entered the grimy building that had housed the Harover Club since the turn of the century. Inside, an auistant doorman who kept,the record of the club members who were in the building at the lime faced them. "Yes, gentlemen?" "Mr. Jess Carmichael. He's expecUng us." "Your names?" "Fletcher and CraRg. But it's all right, we're having lunch with him. We'll look for him In ihe dining room." "Sorry, sir, but it's against the club rules. Mr. Carmichtiel will :mve to pass you. I'll have him paged for you." lie scribbled on a pad, banged a b«il and called out, "Front!" A bellboy came forward smartly and the attendant handed him i slip of paper. "Page Mr. Car- The bellboy went of! and was gone a good five minutes, while Johnny and Sam Waited in front of the assistant doorman's desk. Finally, the boy came back, accompanied by a red-faced, dissipated-looking man of about 30. The bellboy indicated Johnny and Sam, and Jess Carmichael regarded them vaguely. "Do I know you chaps?" *Not yet," said Johnny. "My name's Fletcher and this is my partner, Sam Cragg." Carmichael nodded briefly. "If you're selling insurance—" "We're not," said Johnny. "In fact, we're not selling a thing. I, came to see you for one reason' only. To tell you how grateful 1 I am." i "For what?" asked Carmichael,! still suspicious. \ "My sister. You've been aw-; fully good to her." ' Carmichael Winced. "Fletcher, you said? Uh, I, ah, don't believe 1 know—" 'Oh, she doesn't use our name any more. When she ran away from home she changed it." Johnny paused for effect "To Alice Cummings." 'BLACKMAIL!* exclaimed Carmichael. "You'rt trying to blackmail me." "I've got nothing against blackmail," Johnny said. "I'll make a deal with you. A better deal than; you deserve. I'll let you go your! crummy way, on just one little' condition. Alice's address. Right j now—fast." ' "That's all you want? You're sure?" "That's all. Nothing more. Absolutely." "Chateau Pclham—Fifth Avenue." "Mr. Carmichael," Johnny said, "you're <n scholar and a gentleman. I thank you." Outside, Sam Cragg let out a roar. "Holy smoke, Johnny.
