"Ouch!" exclaimed Johnny. He shot a quick, accusing look at Lieutenant Madigan. Carmichael nodded to Johnny "How are you, Fletcher? I though I'd run over nnd talk to you for a minute, but I see you've got company." "He isn't company." Johnny said easily. "He's a policeman. Lieutenant MadiRan, Mr. Carmichael." Carmichael nodded acknowledgment but did not olTer to •hake hands with the lieutenant. "I had a little chnt with the deputy commissioner this morning." "I know," said Lieutenant Madigan unhappily, "f am as- liencd to the case." "Then why aren't you out working on it?" asked Carmichael curtly. "I want the manor woman—who killed my son." He stopped, made > gesture. "Never mind. Fletcher, I want a word with you in private." "I was just leaving," said Madigan stilTly. "Goodby, sir." Madignn went out, Carmichael said, "I had a phone call a little while ngo. From—" "Just a moment," said Johnny. Ho whipped open the door and aniti to Lieutenant Madigan who •was .standing just outside, "That's the elevator over there." Ilcd-faccd, Madigan whirled away. Johnny waited until the elevator came and Mndigan was aboard. ! "Cops have big ears." . Carmichael looked around the meagerly furnished hotel room. "I used to have a room like this once. Paid $4 a week (or It." "Tills crummy hotel cluirgci us »12." "Us?" "I have a pal, Sam Cragg, the strongest man in the world.' Then, as Carmichael looked a I ftim inquiring!}* "I'm a book salesman. I sell a book called 'Every Man a Samson,' Sam helps me. We put a chain around his chest and I give the suckers, I mean, the prospective customers a sales pitch on secrets ot health and strength and vigor. Sam breaks the chain by expanding his chest. And then I sell the books." "Not bad," said Carmichael. "Not bad at all. In my first store I had a big glass jar full of beans. Everybody who made a purchase had the privilege of making a guess as to how many beans there were in the jar. If they guessed the right number of beans, they got a prize of $100 in Cfl5h," He chuckled. "Nobody ever even came close. You'd be surprised though how many people bought jars of the same size and filled them with beans and then counted the beans one by one. They still couldn't guess the number of beans." "BECAUSE you put some big tones in the center of the jar where they couldn't see them?" "S mar t," said Carmichael. "Only it wasn't stones—It was jlocks of wood. Mind you, I ;lidn't lie about it. I just didn't mention that the Jar wasn't filled solidly with beans. I wouldn't exactly cheat anyone, but, after I didn't make $100 a week off lhr»l store." "A man's gol to be sharp to gel r," said Johnny. "True, Fletcher, true. I used to tell Jess all the time . . .." He topped, his face becoming sober. 'That brings me bftck to the rea- icn I'm here. Thin woman who; telephoned me—Alice Cummingi,; the palls herself." "Ah, yes!" Carmicliwl It'uwtied, "WUou I Jess was a small boy, seven or eight, I gave him a bank—" "A bronze goose bank?" "You know about it?" Carmichael asked eagerly. "Perhaps you'd better finish," Johnny suggested. "I had a dozen stores by that time," Carmichael went on. "My wife had died and a governess was taking care of Jess. I wasn't rich, but I was comfortably off. I wanted to teach him the value of thrift, so I gave him this little bank. For some reason it became Jess's favorite toy." Carmichael drew a deep breath. "And then he grew up and I don't believe I ever saw the—the goose bank again. And now this woman tells me that she has the bank and wants to sell it to me." "For how much?" "That's the fantastic part of it, $50,000." "Fifty thousand . . .1" "I hung up on her. She called jack. Said she wasn't just selling me the bank, she was selling me the name of the person who niirdered Jess. What do you .hink of that?" "Mr. Carmichael," Johnny said softly, "she might have been tell- ng the truth! Since yesterday more. people have tried to get ,hat bank from me . . , M "You have It?" "I had it. It was stolen from nil room this morning." CARMICHAEL groaned. "Why didn't you t«ll me you had th« >ank?" "I didn't know it was so valuable when I had it." The woman knew. She told me over the phone that Jess had lad a premonition of his death dnd that he'd told her if winching happened to him to give he bank to me, because it con- ained the name of the person vho had killed him." Johnny dug deep into his right rousers pocket and brought out he handful of coins he had taken rom the bank the clay before. le dumped them on the counlcr- mno of the bed, "They got th« mnk, this morning, but I hud nl- cndy emptied it. This it what viis in the himk." (To kta Continued) By BILL WALKER ft4 HAW DOES AU. OCR REPAIRIN CA US? SHE'S INSOffED WITH W. L. WALKER INSURANCE AGENCY Glenco Bldg.
