He put the coins ion the table beside Ms chair. '"She wanted the pennies and .dimes so badly. I bought her $6 worth. Pennies are pennies to 'fcer, and dimes, dimes." Sutton looked at his uncle. "A founch of old-fashioned Indian iliead pennies—and dimes anc •quarters. I, thought—" "That there was » message in the bank? That's the message.' Johnny indicated the heap of Sutlon looked at the coins, perplexed. "One of your jokes Fletcher?" "No joke." Hertha Colston got up and came over. She looked at the [coins. "I never saw these, but |Jess told me once about the bank Ibe had as a boy." She looked at CarmichaeL "You gave k to him?" Carmichnel nodded quietly. 'He was very fond of the bank." ' Can I have these?" Herths asked a note of wistfulncss In her voice. "It's—it might be a kind of remembrance." "There's some things I want to [Say first," Johnny .said, "then I •don't care who takes the coins. 'Mr. Carmichael, Miss Colston, some of this Is going to be rather painful." 'Go ahead, Fletcher," said Cnr- michaol gruffly. 'You all know about Alice Cumminfls. Jess was infatuated with her. So much so that he gave her one of his boyhood treasure* nnd confided In her. Up to o point. He told Alic« Cummings that if anything happened to him, to give the limping goose naiiK to hi. father. It would Ml him who hnd killed him." "1 don't undentand thai," H*r- Hi a said, puzzled. "It—it sounds as if he expected to be killed.' "He did." "I stumbled .into this thing," Johnny went on. "A bill collector came to my hotel and one thing led to another and he defied me to collect a long-overdue bill against Alice Cummings. Nothing would have happened— that is, I would not have gotten involved in this myself — if I hadn't taken a short cut to find* ing Alice Cummings. I might add that with interest, the amounl still due was $74. "I nailed her for that but she only had $57 in her purse at the time. I held out for the other §17 and then the phone rang and Jess Carmichael was announced. She wanted to get me out in the worst way nnd without stopping to think she gave me the limping goose bank to make up the difference." Johnny paused. "Cummings and Jess quarreled and she went out, leaving him in her apartment—" "That's what she says," Hertha put in spitefully. * * • 'I THINK she told the truth. Somebody else came in—somebody who knew that Jess was there. That'i the person who killed him." 'Fletcher," Carmlchnel asked soberly, "do you know who that person is?" "Mr. Carmichacl," Johnny said, 'this morning when I was here .alkihg to Mr. Sutlon and you were in the other room listening, he said that you started out in Ife as a telegraph operator. Was .hnt true?" "Why, yea, I was the station agent and telegraph operator at little town in Ohio." "Can you still read the Morae code?" 'Once you learn that you never brget (I. I might not be able to •nd a m«§H|t any mort, but li could still read one unless it was in International code. 1 * "Just a moment, then." Johnny stepped to the table and began sorting out the quarters, dimes and pennies. He lined them up, according to the date, beginning with the 1860 penny, continuing down to the last 1939 coin. The others in the room watched him. When Johnny was nearly through, James Sutton suddenly laughed. "You're a character, Fletcher. You spring your childish games on us and we're hypnotized. We listen to you and we watch you." He chuckled. "Do you know, Uncle Jess, that our friend Fletcher here last night hired a limousine to take him out to your home and that he charged the hire to his room at thft Barbizon-Waldorf Hotel h.ere? . . . and he happens to be living at the Forty-Fifth Street Hotel." "I've been to his room," said Carmichael. JOHNNY straightened from arranging the coins. "Read it, Mr. Carmichael. Read it It's the message your son wanted you to -ead." "I taught Jess the Morse code when he was eight years old," said Carmichacl. He looked at .he rows of coins spread out on he table. "I don't understand, Fletcher." "The pennies are the dots, the dimes the dashes and the quar- ers the spaces between words. Read it, Mr, Carmichael." Carmichael gnve a start. His eyes darted to the coins. "'If less is killed,' " he read slowly. Then he gave a violent start. "One of Fletcher's tricks," cried ames Sutton hoarsely. "Is it, Sutton?" Johnny demanded. "Does the message give lis name, Mr. Carmichael?" Carmichnel continued dully, "'Jim Sulton d!d it. He'"—he icsitaled—" 'he killed L. Smith- ont'" "That's a He!" yelled Sutton. 'Lester isn't dead.
