"I—he wrot me a letter two—three years ago Lester Smithson is alive, J tel you, he's alive." "He's dead," said J o h n n j bluntly. "You killed him 12 year ago. Jess knew it then, but kep quiet. But he never trusted y He was afraid of you." Carmichael faced his nephew his eyes blazing like an avenging angel's. "Did you kill my son?' Sutton backed away. "He wa raised with a gold spoon in his mouth. He had everything ant I—I was poor." "Poor!" burst out Sam Cragg "How can a guy live in the Barbi/on-Waldorf and be poor?" "I gave him on allowance," Cnrmichael said. He moved toward Sutton. "I gave you money and you—you killed my son . . .' "I needed more money," Sutton wailed. "I—I've been wipec out. I speculated and I lost every dollar and went into debt." Sutton sank into a chair and began to sob. Cnrmichael stood over him; his big body seemed to slump and he aged before Johnny's eyes. llcrlha Colston moved up to him quietly and put her nrms about Carmichael's shoulders. Carmichael looked at her and smiled wanly, "They told me when he was a boy that he had a vicious' streak in him. 1—I thought he'd outgrown It. 1 would have made him my heir . . ." "Me counted on that," Johnny said soberly. "He hired me last night to find Lester Smithson. He knew very well that 1 wouldn't be able to do that, but he figured I It was a good thing, to throw I suspicion in another direction. IBInmo Lester Smllhson. Lester Ibad reason to Kill Jeu, ta u«- ured. If he could make you be lieve that Lester had come back and killed Jess he was all right. 1 Lieutenant Madigan moved for .raid. He snapped a pair of hand cuffs on Button's wrists and said "We'll get a statement from him down at Headquarters." The phone rang suddenly shrilly. Everyone in the room looked at it, but no one move< toward it. Johnny finally steppet across the room and picked r up. "Yes? Who?" He winced "Yes, he's here." He covered the mouthpiece. "Mr. Carmichael, it's Alice Cummings. She wants to talk to you." "I have nothing to say to her.' Johnny said into the phone 'Sorry, babe, Mr. Carmichael has nothing to say to you. . . . Y« t's me, your old friend, Johnny Fletcher . . ." He winced again. 'You've cut your price to $10,0007 For what. . . . Oh, trie pennies and dimes, eh?" 'Let me talk to her," Hcrthi said suddenly. "She wants to sell $6 worth f change for $10,000," chuckled Johnny. He handed the phone to Hcrtha Colston. Herth« told Alice Cummings what to do with the coins. • • • JOHNNY AND SAM shook lands with the lawyer outside he courthouse in Peckskill. "A remendous victory, gentlemen," he attorney said ctuhusiastl- ally. "I told you 1 could do it." 'You call n $800 fine a vic- ory?" asked Johnny cynically. "For forgery, grand larceny, ail-breaking . . ." "Cut It out," shuddered Sam. "A victory," the lawyci said rmly. "If It wasn't for the (net lat the city prosecutor Is my ousln and that 1 just happen to lay golf with the Judge, it would •ve been five years in the Start en'; ipllary. Six months in the U, M Uu v«r/ icut." "All right," said Johnny. "Thanks. Thanks a million. You did a great job. The next time one of us gets arrested in Peekskill, we'll give you our business." "You'll be in good hands. And now, I must say goodby to you, gentlemen. One of my, ah, clients has been charged with stealing a, ah, a bus. Kidiculous, p/ course, but 1 must do my duty by him. Goodby, gentlemen." The attorney bustled away and Johnny and Sam walked toward the bus stop where they would get a bus that would take them back to Manhattan. "I'm never going to come anywhere near Peekskill again." said Sam solemnly. "It's a good thing Mr. Carmichael gave me that $1000 this morning. He didn't really have to give it to me, you know. It Was for finding Lester Smithson. And I never found him," "How could you find him when ha was dead?" • • • JOHNNY suddenly snorted. 'Imagine that lawyer — a thou- and bucks! And cash he wanted, oo. Before the trial." "I'm sorry, Johnny. We're just about broke again, aren't we?" "After we pay the bus fart we'll hsve about 70 cents left over." Johnny shook his head nd sifihed. "Well, that's too bad. was going to mail $36 to Mr. 'cabody — along with th« pawn icket for his suit. But now. I !uess, I'll just mail him the pawn icket. That's better than noth- ng, isn't it?" 'Yeah, but don't we owe somt oom rent again?" "Sure, but what's that? I'll hlnk of something. I always do." "Sure, Johnny!" Sam beamed with confidence. "1 might even figure a way to My back old_Pcnbody that 136 I'll cost to get his suit out of ock," Johnny went on. "After II, he helped us in a time of iced." Sam looked at his friend with larm. "Sure you feel all right, ohnny?" he asked. "Let's spend the 70 conli," ohnny said illt END T • KOOLVENT ALUMINUM AWNINGS JKtJ CALL NOW Ph. 3-4293 FOR FREE ESTIMATE SMITH AWNING CO. 113 S.
