Johnny shook the bank mightily and a coin fell to the bedspread. He picket! it up. "An Indian head penny!" "Hey, I ain't seen orie of those in n long time," exclaimed Sam. "Nineteen hundred and seven," said Johnny, looking at the dale on the coin. "I thought maybe it might be rare, but I guess this isn't old enough." He shook the bank for another moment or two and a dime fell out. A 1912 Barber head dime. "Her grandmother must have saved these coins," said Johnny. He continued shaking the bank and a third coin fell out. This, loo, was a penny, dated 1902. . "I'm hungry again," complained Sam. "All that walking." Johnny picked up a $5 bill from the money given to him by Alice Cummlngs, "Here, go and gel yourself another slenk. You need il—you haven't been eating regularly lately." "Aren't you coming along?" "No, I've had enough to cat for a while. I'll keep nt this." Sam hesitated, but his stomach won. "I'll bo back In an hour," Johnny continued with the bank and extracted another clime and a penny, In the next few minutes. Both w.cre fairly old coins, although not worn much. He got up to stretch a moment i and then the door was opened and Mr. Kilkenny, the skip tracer, entered. He was grinning wickedly. "Don't you knock?" Johnny asked angrily. "A skip tracer never knocks, Kilkenny said cheerfully. "Nobody loves a skip tracer and nobody lets him in anywhere, if they can keep him out." His eyes went to the roll of bills on the bed. "Well, well, Fletcher, you made a score, I *ee. Not from Miss Alice Cummings?" "Why not? I said I'd find her and collect, and I did." "Great," enthused Kilkenny. "I got to hand it to you. I wasn't going to drop by until tomorrow, but I happened to be across the street and saw your partner going by. The big moose!" "He'll be back in a minute," Johnny said uneasily. "Sure, but let's finish our business first.* 1 HE reached past Johnny and scooped up the bills. He flipped through them quickly. "Hey, there's only $52 here." "She didn't have enough." "Well, fifty - two li close enough. You got to knock off a ittle once in a while." "True," said Johnny, "and, Ike you said earlier, it doesn't really count if the client hasn't got the money. But this one did lave most of. it and I collected. So you ow« m« $10. w "Mmin," said Kilkenny. He pursed up his lips. "Okay, you won the bet I'll give you 10 credit—" "Credit?" "Sure, on the bill you owe," "Now, wait a minute," said i Tohnny angrily, "I don't owe you any money." Your partner docs. Same hing. You helped spend the i money, I'll b*t, when you hocked he mandolin," \ "You're not going to get awaj with this," snapped Johnny. "I worked hard to collect that inU and I want my money." ."Try and get it," said Kilkenny nastily. Johnny advanced upon the skip tracer. "There's a time for talking and a time for—" "For action?" cried Kilkenny and slammed Johnny a savage blow with his fist. The punch caught Johnny on the cheekbone and knocked him backward over, the bed. Johnny said, "Stick around un- ( til Sam comes back." | "It ain't worth it," sneered Kilkenny. He went out, slamming the door. WHEN Sam Cragg returned, Johnny was just getting the list coin out of the goose bank. A penny. "I think we got gypped," he said. "There isn't $17 here." "It's all pennies and dimes and quarters." "And most of them old ones." Johnny scooped up the heap of dimes and quarters. "Here, count Lhesc." While Sam was counting the dimes and quarters, Johnny himself counted the pennies. After a few moments he said, "I make it 98 pennies . . ." "And 24 dimes and 12 quar- rV said Sam. "Two forly, plus 98 cents, plus $3—$6.38." The bank ought to be worth something," suggested Sam. "Sure, about 40 cents." Johnny picked up the goose bank. It was quite heavy. He studied it a mo- nent. "Nice-looking bird," he said, "but one of the feet is smaller than the other." "Do you suppose that means something?" Johnny shrugged. "It looks more like an Imperfection in the costing. These things were mnde :o retail for about 40 cents." Sam took the KQOSC from Johnny's hand and set it oh the dress- It was somewhat wobbly on ts feet and Sam wiggled it back ind forth. "Look, It limps." Johnny tried the goes* bank ilmflfllf. "A limping ([°°se. M (To Be Continued) Pennzoil Z-7 For the first time ... a motor oil that UNLOCKS HORSE- rOWER!
