DREXY'S voice sounded Incred- •*• ulous, after I told him Professor JjcNormand was dead, but he told me, "Very well, I shall be there in 10 minutes." I rejoined Jerry at the top of the itnirs. Jerry said, "There's a couple of things we better talk over before he comes, Bark." "This thing is foul enough already. I don't wnnt to talk about it." He ctit me short. "That's all very well. I don't like this any better than you do. Besides, Le- Normand was my friend." "I'm sorry." "Forget it. We're going to be asked a whole lot of questions, Bark. Prcxy first, and then the police, and then, I suppose, the newspapers. Just what are we going to tell them?" "Why . . . that we came in here—I suppose it was nbout six o'clock—and found LeNormand here, burning up In his chair, and Jerry looked hard at me. "Ycoh. We came in here and Lc- Normand was in his chair with hl» head hanging down over the bnck of it, and he was burning like a torch. Suppose somebody told you that story?" It did sound unconvincing when h« put It us badly •• that Th« au«stioni I'd been flihllna to keep out of my mind began to stampede into it. How did the fire start? How could LeNormand have just sat there while It burned him alive? Had he carelessly jammed a lighted pipe into his pocket and set fire to his clothes that way? Then he must have died soon after, because no man would sit calmly in his chair and be burned to death. Heart failure? Jerry cut in on my thoughts. "While you .were telephoning, I looked round this place. It's going to be pretty hard to explain how it happened, Dark. You saw him just as we came in. Did you think he was dead then?" "No," I had to admit. H I saw his eyes move. I thought he was looking at us." He nodded. "So did I. Maybe it was the flicker of the fire." He paused. "Take a look at that chair, but don't touch it. There may be fingerprints." Leaning over carefully, so as to include nothing else in the room in my field of vision, I looked at the chair. Of course, at the time it was dark in the room, but even the light from one gooseneck lamp was enough to show thnt the chair was not the way I'd expected it to be. Instead of being blackened with flre and charred clear up the back, it was almost unmarked. * * * HK said carefully, "I looked at him too. Ills bnck is burned clear through." "I'll take your word for that." "You know," he observed calmly, "this thing is going to look like a crime. In fact, murder. A torch murder." I left the chair and went back 111. DUnibvted by NEA Scrriu/litc. I to him. "And we'll be the prin- ! cipal witnesses?" "Witnesses," snid Jerry, "or suspects." Just then there was a swish ot tires on the grave!. There was the slam of .1 car door, and the brisk click of the latch at the entrance. "Mr. Jones?" Proxy's big voice boomed out in the hall below. "Right up here, sir," I called down. He came up the stairs, irritation and purpose in every stamp of his feel on the trends. "Mr. Jones, I trust the extraordinary story you told me over the telephone a few minutes ago—" AND he was in the room, his words abruptly silenced by its quiet austerity. Before he had perfect control of himself, 1 heard him give a single snifl ai the impact of the smell still lingering in the air took him by surprise. Even though he did not see LeNormand at once, he had no doubt in the world after that first breath. Prcxy is a fine-looking man, big as a house and built like an athlete, with a granite face and hair as gray as stone. His manner is heavy rather than pompous, and he never appears to b« at a loss. That evening he w« dressed for a formal dinner— tails and while tie. Jerry broke the momentary silence. "Over there," he said, with a flash of his eye toward th« long, dark bundle on the floor. "Thank you," said Prexy. "You're Mr. Lister?" "Yes." "I'll talk to you both »bout thin in a moment."
