She was happy for the first time in weeks. ..". Dear Monny,'-shQ thought. Dear, ••• good: Monny. She saw. Mbnny _. raking Mrs. Marsrmll-jGill- with cold eyes, standing with her hands in her pockets, carefully insolent anil mistress of the situation. "Miss Small-and I are resigning," Montiy had said. "The Board will have a formal notice in a dny or so." Mrs. Marshall-Gill had bleated. LikE n sheep. She hadn't meant to criticize, slie hadn't meant to say what she did, she'd only thought that Miss Brady and Miss Small might have been a wee bit more careful. Monny "had been wonderful. How were they to know Ruth Miller was suicidal? she'd demanded. How. were' they to know Li 11 inn Harris had,vertigo or was cockeyed? Did the Board expect them to read thc ! girls' minds and lock them in with a few moral words? Miss Small had chuckled. I had been too marvelous; she'd sen- Monny home by herself and gone shopping alone. She'd wanted to be alone, among strangers, free to plan and think about the happ> time ahead. - And by great gooc luck she'd found a perfect prcsei for Monny. "Good evening, Miss Small," a man's voice said. "May I see Mis Brady?" She jumped. A tall man wilh arm brown eyes stood before er. Sho thought; Why thnt's^- "Don't you remember me, Miss imall? My name is East." So, Miss Small said to herself. >hc left the enclosure with a firm top. "Come this way, please." In he empty lounge she indicated a hair. "If you'll wait, Mr. East, '11 try to find Miss Brady." • * • rpEN minutes later she followed Miss Brady back into the room. "I thought we'd seen the last of you," Miss Brady said gaily. "'Not yet." His voice ir.nte'ied icrs. "I hear you nearly lost another girl." "I suppose you mean Lillian ifarris. I'd like to know where .•on picked that up." "From a 'new client. I've been retained by Mrs, Marshall-Gill. 1 Miss - Brady was astonished. 'Well I'll be! Mind telling me low you got to her?" "Not nt all.. She got, this afternoon^ via Mrs. Sutton." Miss Brady looked as it-she were counting up to. 10-the long way. 'All right," 'she said. "What do yon want?" "I want to interview some of your people. Not about Harris, about Ruth Miller.' The Miller ghost is walkipg again, but-1 suppose you know that." "Because of Lillian Harris?" "Probably. It's got to stop, you know. Mrs. Marshall-Gill says so ml I agree. It's a bad business. Now lictcij for a minute while I tell my side. "There's been a strong difference of opinion about Ruth -Miller ever since the beginning. Thai's how I got into this. And Retting into it meant talking 1 to people, to MissTJbby, who knew Ruth at Blackmail's, to Dr. Kloppcl, to couple oC kids who'd better be nameless. They all contradicted each other.

Your team Insists that Ruth Miller wasn't much of a person—to put it mildly, a misfit. If you're right* •icr suicide is-tenable. The other leum, that's Mrs. Button and one or two others, says she was sound' .ind straight. If they're right, her suicide needs looking into." , .f. . . * •-'•':'*!!

"She was all right at'first, I can swear to that. I'm used to sizing girls rip. But then, suddenly, she- changed, right under my eyes. She was terrified, all at once. I thought . . ." "What?" he asked. "It was so sudden," she repeated. 'I thought she must have seen someone. That was the only explanation, someone" who knew something about her, perhaps. . . . Mr. East, are you convinced that this is not what it seems?" "You're not too sure yourself, are you?" Miss Brady intervened crisply/ "I'll tak* that one. The miserable girl killed herself. She was caught n a net of her own devising. And • when yon find'out what it'was, if you ever do,find out, it will be the isual thing, and you know what I nean.

"Very neat," Mark said: "Wlmt is?" "The wily- you've proved;- it wasn't you Ruth Miller feared'. Because she talked to you and., came back for more." Miss Brady colored.
