Sum OniSK "kl rnrril A Her CuiiimliiK"- "1m XV rpHE door of Room 821 was un^ locked, which was not unusual, since the maids were in and out with their cleaning and linens. But when Johnny pushed open the door, he let out a low whistle. The beds were stripped, the blankets and sheets thrown on the floor. The drawers of the single dresser were open and the contents dumped on the floor. The carpet had even been torn loose. Two minutes' search convinced them that the limping goose bank- was not in the room. The door opened and Eddie Miller came into the room. Eddie was the bell captain of the Forty-Fifth Street Hotel, a sharp little mnn in his mid-thirties who knew all the answers and had invented many of the questions. "Termites?" he asked, looking around. "BlR ones," replied Johnny. Eddie nodded. "I know you're in the middle of a caper, Mr. Fletcher, what with the law com- inR here last night and Mr. Peabody prancing and smirking. And things gofnfi on." Johnny shook his head. "We're broke," , . "Well, that's normal for you. You've always done right by me when you had it. So this Is for froc. 1 mean until you Ret back Into the chips. Some people been 'ipkinK me about you." "People?" "First two, then one. The two"—Eddie gestured about the room—"I guess they're the ones did this. One slipped me 50 cents, out I told him it was worth my job to give out a guest's room number. So the other guy gave me a buck." "And you gave them the room number?" "They could have got it at the desk. For that, Haskins, the day clerk, would give them a guest's key." "How much do you charge for key?" Eddie grinned, "I held out for five. After all, your tux is at the, ah; cleaners, isn't it? Along with your overcoat and your other suits. They—they didn't swipe anything, did they?" "A piggy bank, that's all," said Sam Cragg. Eddie's face fell. "I didn't know you had anything in here worth while." "Oh, this wasn't worth much. Eddie," said Johnny easily "Just man's life, that's all. But I ,von't hold it against you. You've got to make a living, too. What about the other one who came later?" "Harry Flanagan, He didn't know that I knew him, but he itayed here a week, (our years ago." "What's he do for a living?" • * • EDDIE grinned. "You want a crap game, Harry'll llx it Cor you. You want to buy a diamond ring, Harry'll gel it for you wholesale." 'What'd h« wnnl to know about me?" "He seemed to think you were i private eye or something. He let it out that you were investigating a friend of his." "He mention (he name?" "Uh-nh, but it's « babe." The phone rang. Johnny stepped to the bed ind scooped t up. "Hcllol" The voice of Jamas Sutton said, "Mr, Fletcher? Glad I caught you in. I've been think- j ing over our little deal. I've decided not to go ahead—" "You can't quit now." Johnny cried m sudden desperation. "I've got something for you." "Tell me now." "I can't, over the phone. I'll be there in 10 minutes." Ten minutes later he entered the Barbizon-Waldori. He went to a house phone After a moment, Sutton answered. "Johnny Fletcher I'm downstairs." There was a slight hesitation. "Room 3422, but don't come up for .10 minutes." Johnny hun. up and walked o the elevators. * • • THI door was opened instantly by James Sutton. "I said 10 minutes." "My watch is r'.opped," Johnny. "When the iry investigator is guzzling his beer, or making a night of it, I'm working. I work .ill t. time, durir.g the day, at night So. last nieht, about 2 n. m. 1 said to myself, suppose I was Lester Smithson, the nephew of a man who owns 2200 grocery stores. Supposr I had a cousin who was the son of the ma- who had 2200 gro- ry stores: ordinarily he'd be -e nan who'd 'nherit the grocery- stores.

'. >i nothing against the idea, personally . . . and the son of a man who has 2200 grocery stores can't be expected to be spending his time weighing out sugar and coffee.' 1 "No," said Sutton, "of course not." 'On the other hand," Johnny went on, "if you're only a cousin of.a man who owns 2200 grocery stores, that's a 'i se -' a different feather. What can this cousfn do to shov his uncle what fine mnn he is? Especially f said uncle started out In life as a poor grocery clerk?" "He wasn't a "vocery clerk," Id utton.
