VI CAM exrlaimocl, "What hap- peneti? You bumped yourself?" He had noticed Johnny's check. "Yes. T bumped myself. Against Mr. Kilkenny's fist. He was here right nfter you loft—" "Why, mi tear the guy to piwcs." "If he comes back." Johnny exhaled heavily. "He took the money—$52 . . ." "V.^at about the $10 he promised if you collected the bill?" Johnny shook his head. "He's applying it on the mandolin bill. So we're broke again. Kxcept for these pennies and dimes and quarters nnd . . ." Johnny's eyes lit up. "How much hove you got left from (hat fiver I gave you?" Abashed, Sam brought out a crumpled bill and some loose change. "A dollar forty-five." Johnny groaned. "You ate $3.!>5 worth of food on top of what you had for lunch!" "The bill was only three five, but I left a half-buck tip." Johnny howled. "We're about to be thrown out of our hotel room and you go leaving 50-ccnt lips." "Anyway, We got $1.45 nnd these dimes and pennies and quarters." "That's not enough to keep Pcabody from throwing us out on the street. And I don't know ' /ibout those pennies. They might be more valuable than T think. I'd hate to give them'to Pcabody nnd then find out they were worth about $10,000* "You think they might ... 7" "I'm g-fing to find out." He put on his cont and they left the hotel. They crossed to Fifth Avenue, then turned south to Forty-second, where they entered the 4iuge New York Public Library. In the card-file room, Johnny looked up books on rare coins and a few minutes later a book was presented to him in the big raiding'room. With Sam trailing, he carried it to one of the tables nnd rapidly turned the pages to Indian head pennies. "Ha!" he exclaimed. "Eighteen fifty-six, Flying Eagle cent, worth $100 and up—" "We got one of those?" "No, our oldest coin Is 1865, I believe. We'll look those up in a minute. Here—.1861 cent, worth 50 cents to $1 . . ." Tor a penny?" 'That's what the book soys. And here's another, 1877, up to $50." "Wow!" cried Sam. * • * ACROSS the table an elderly man put his forefinger to his lips and whisperexi sibilantly, "Shhh!' Johnny skimmed over a few pages. "Hcre'rc the dimes. Mmm, they seem to run about the same, maybe a little less even. Oh-oh, here's an exception, I804-O—up to $2-100." "Wo got one of those, Johnny?" "I hardly think so. H says here that only 24 were made." "Take a lonk, I'm all goose pimples," Sam blinked, then chuckled. "Goose pimples—from a goose bank." "Hero," snld Johnny, "we'll copy ell this down about the dimes and th« p*nnie*. You got a pencil?" "You know I never cnrry one. I haven't got anybody to write to." Johnny looked across Ui* table. "Excuse me, but do you have a pencil I could borrow?" If it'll keep you .quiet, here's a fountain pen," exclaimed the elderly reader. 'Thank you. You don't happen to have a couple of sheets of paper on you, do you?" The reader groaned. "Here— here's a notebook, tear out some pages. Now, write please, and keep quiet awhile." Johnny scribbled furiously, then returned the fountain pen and gathered up bis sheets. 'This'll do it. Good-by, sir, and thank you for the use of the pen ' and the paper. ..." Two chairs away, a heavy-set, man with thick glassed slammed! back his chair. "There's too much noise around here!" J Johnny put his finger to his lips, "Shhh! It's against the rules to yell in the library." * * * THEY walked down Forty- Second Street. Passing the newsstand, Johnny's eyes went to the papers. A groan was forced from him. Johnny handed the news vendor a nickel. Then he opened the paper and exposed the headline to Sam. JK8S CA It M ICI1A Kl, III FOII NDj SI, A IN IN FIFTH AVKN1JE APARTMENT 'Holy cow!" gasped Sam; Cragg. "That's the joint we were at this afternoon." Johnny continued to read the ; article. Finally he lowered thei paper. "Something tells me that; we're going to be in trouble." "We didn't do it," cried Sam"We know we didn't, but will, the police know? Look, it says here: 'The beautiful former showgirl gave police the names of two men who called on her a short lime previously and threat-^ ened her with bodily injury/' That's us, Sam." "There's the subway," Sarri said, "we got those dimes. We can be over in New Jersey in a half hour." "If the police want us badly enough, they'll get us In Canada." "Johnny," cried Sam in sudden panic, "you ain't going to play detective ngoln, arc you?" "Who, me?" asked Johnny in-i noccntly.
