VII A FTER a moment we heard Prcxy coming upslajrs again. As he entered we stood up; It was astonishing how much he made us leel like undergraduates. "I shall remain here with you , until the police arrive. And then," his face altered, but whether to tenderness or pity, or something subtler, I could not • make out, "I shall have the melancholy duly of bringing the news of this tragedy to Mrs. Le- Normand." "Mrs. LeNormand!" Jerry's exclamation was one of incredulity and shock. "Yes," said Proxy, half to himself, "Mrs. LeNormand. You didn't know he was married?" "No. . . . And he never told me ... I saw no announcement ... 1 mean, this is absolutely a ..." Jerry was floundering. . "When did it happen?" Proxy's e x p, r c s s i o n as he looked at us was Introspective. Jle must have been thinking fast with most of his mind and nn- swcrinc us with nothing but the ,top layer of it. "About three •months aRo. He appeared nt one •of Mrs. Murray's summer teas and simply presented her to nil of us ns his wife. It was nulte 'a sensation." , The microcosm of University society must hnve been rocked to Its center. LeNormand, of all Ipcoplel "Pruld«nt Murray*" J*"7 >*M finally, "I wish you'd tell me more than that. Who is she? Where did she come from? Why did LeNormand . . ." Prcxy frowned. "I've told you almost all that !. or anyone else so far as I know, can tell you. Not one person !n the University had ever seen her before. LeNor- mand was matter-of-fact about il, as least on the surface, but he's never given us a word of explanation. We couldn't pry anything out of him. We couldn't even—" He chocked himself. "This is all really beside the point." Jerry was urgent. "No, it isn't. If LeNormand got married—and I knew him well, sir. I can't think of a thing that would make him want to .surrender his ... his freedom. Why, even the most beautiful woman in the world—" With no expression on his face at all, Prcxy said slowly, "Some people might say that she is ihc most beautiful woman in the world." • • • CHIEF HANLON was a white- haired cockerel of a man with sharp eyes and a hit of the brogue still stuck to the knife- edge of his tongue. "Hello, b'ys," was all he said to us. At his heels was young Pudge Applogatc. Pudge is the son, and I .presume heir, of Collegovillc's former bootlegger, and nlso Han- Ion's son-in-law, He weighs n scant 225 pounds, practically all of which he carries below the neck. Although his uniform always looked as though he had hud H laundered on him quite some time before, he was not so fat as his nickname suggested. If Chief Hioioo WM UM br*ini a* U* force, he was certainly its brawn, I don't know how many minutes elapsed before Doc Nickor- son arrived, but his appearance was welcome. He nodded to Jerry, whom I suppose he remembered from football days. "Don't move him any more than you can help, Doc," l-lnnlon cautioned. "Don't touch nothin' else." "I haven't moved him at all," the Doc said. He turned to his little black bag, took out some cotton and a bottle of something or other. MoisU.ning the cotton with whatever was in the bottle, he swabbed off all his fingers carefully and stood up. "Burned to death, apparently. The muscles of the upper back and shoulders seem to have been almost entirely consumed. The left scapula is calcined." He closed his bag and came over tc us. "How did this .happen?" He, too, seemed to feel-the same incredulity that bad affected Jerry and me and Proxy. * * * I STARTED to say something, but Hanlon silenced me with a wave of his hand. "Doc, can ye think of any way that such burns could bc.causcd? The poor fella'i half cooked." Nickcrson shook his head. "It seems almost as though a blowtorch had been held fit his back." Hanlon took him up on that "Thin ho must 'a 1 been dead whin it was used on him?" "Perhaps heart failure . . .* Jerry's voice was tentative. • "It's Impossible to tell anything now. But LeNormand came to me a few days ago for a going- over. He did that every ycnr. He was sound as a nut last Tuesday " CU ft* CoailnutA) Guaranteed Watch Cleaning 3.50 36 Hour Service Your watch is completely dis- assembled—aJ] pivots polished —springs adjusted and machine cleaned.
