Jolmnj In X qiHE guard talked again into -*- the phone, then came on! and pressed a button that swung open the gates. The limousine rolled up curved drive and stopped before a pile of dressed stone that was worth roughly haU a million, give or lake a hundred thousand. "May be a while," Johnny said to the chauffeur of the hired car. They walked up to the front door. Johnny leaned on the door button. The chimes were still bonging inside when a liveried butler opened the door. "Mr. Fletcher?" "That's right, Wilklns. I just stopped in to offer my condolences to Jess." "It's a very sad thing, sir," said the butler. "Mr. Carmichael is taking it very badly." "That's only natural." The butler consulted a leather booklet In his hand. "I'm afraid I don't have your name here, sir." Johnny looked al him blankly. "Are you supposed to have it?" "Yes, sir, you sec, there are so many people who try to call on Mr. Carmichael that he found it necessary to make up a list of his friends to whom he Is in." "And my name isn't In the book? Well, what do you know «bout that?" "If you could tell me the nn- ture of your business. Joseph, • I the gale, said that—that you were n customer. Well, Joseph mid that your car—" "If I'd come up in anything smaller I suppose I couldn't even have gotten this far?" "I didn't mean that, sir. It's only that . . ." The butler again took refuge in his leather book "Are you a friend of Mr. Carmichael's?" "From the 'look of things," Johnny said coldly, "I guess I'i not." He paused, then added sarcastically, "But if it isn't asking too much of you, I'd appreciate it if you'd just step in and tell Jess that Johnny Fletcher is here." "And your business?" Johnny turned and struck .Sam violently on the shoulder. "Now, how do you like that?" He turned back to Wilkins. "Tell Jess that I'm a customer of his. Tell him that. And if he still doesn't want to see me, that's that." The butler walked off, crossing the large wide hall and entering a door which he closed behind him. He was gone four or five minutes, then returned. "Mr, Carmichael will see you in the library." He led the way through a drawing room, another hall, then opened a pins-paneled room and stood aside. Johnny and Sam went into the library, a room some 20 by 30 feet in she, lined with bookshelves containing mostly leather-bound and other unread books. * * • JESS CARMICHAEL was seated In • large green leather chair. Across the room, a younger man stood examining the tooling on some of the leather vol- jmcs. Carmichael looked at Johnny, frowning. "Fletcher?" "That's right, Mr. Carmichael, May I offer mjr condolences . . ?" Carmichael m»de an Impatient gesture of di.imlssal. "I never ;nw you before in my life." By J. R.

"I never told him anything of the kind." Carmichael scowled. "I never forget a name or a face. Fletcher? No, I'm certain. I've never done business with you." "Oh, yes, you have," Johnny said. "I've been a customer of yours for a good many years." "Ridiculous! I'm the only man in my entire organization who, knows the name of every cus- • tomer we've got. What stores do I you represent?" "None, but—" "Then who are you?", "A customer. I've bought at; your stores for 20 years, more or less. Not only in New York, but in other cities." A strange expression came over Jess Carmichael's fa' expression much like that of a man who has bitten into an apple and discovered therein a half of a fat worm. "You're a retail customer?" • • • THE young man turned from the bookshelves and studied Johnny Fletcher thoughtfully. Johnny said, "That's right. And I've always been a booster of the Carmichael Stores. Your prices have been good, your merchandise has been fine. Up until recently. I think you should know, however, that I'm not satisfied with your corned beef hash. It used to be that there was plenty of good red meat in can, but I bought one last week on 45th Street—Store No. 1144, in case you're interested— and I had to search for the meat. Potatoes, that's all there was in the can, potatoes and here and [here a tcntsy-weentsy bit of the old corned beef. . , ." Jess Carmichael bounded out of his chair. He took two quick steps toward Johrtny then stopped. There was a wild looj< in his eyes. "Who—who sent you here?" "No one. I came on my own. Jh, Ihis is my friend, Sam Cragg."
