That, he sa\v at once, was a sign lo the elderly woman who sat between the two beds. The only light was a night lamp on the bed table. ."It's me, April," Miss Brndy said. "I'm not coming in, I only want to know how you are. Have you had your dinner?" "Yes, Miss Brady. I'm all right." He saw her then, huddled in a deep chair. She was tiny, fair, and too fragile. "Any change, Mrs. Fister?" Miss Brady whispered- He hardly heard her. Lillian Harris was the still figure on the bed. She was swathed in bandages I and covered lo Ihe chin. Her face I Was a waxen oval marked with i pale lips and dark, curling lashes and if she was breathing he couldn't see it. He started forward. The woman at the bedside I ttood up and shook her head.

Miss Bratly look his arm and they were out in the hail again; Lhc door closed behind then) and lie heard a key turn on the inside. 'T'lIK pacltroom door was iijtir, •*• giving a glimpse of nondescript luggage; a clean paper tablet hung on the wall beside 'the phone. There was another door a few feet away, niavkcd "Bath." "Is that tht? one?" lie asked. "If yon mean Harris, yes." "Can you think ot any reason wliy I can't look it over?" "Help yourself," she invited. "It's none o[ my business how you waslc youc lime and your clients' money." It was nol a large room; one tub in an alcove, one shower, one washbasin over by the window, He stepped into (he shower and examined the faucets, "Harris looks io be ahonl live feel six," he aid easily. "So Ihc faucets are 11 wrong for a bump on the head. A full inch too high. If they were ower I could understand what lappcned. Slip, stagger, wham." It was the door." she said. ''It's concrete. If she slipped and struck icv head on the floor, that would do it." 'Don't you think it's a little small for that?" 'What is?" "The Hoor space. Not much more than a square yard. She'd lave lo be double-jointed. ..." He walked over to the window, lean ed from it a nd lo ok ed up and down. There were lights on the ground floor but only a few above it. They were bright patches on the dark walls. One of the patches was the window in the room lo his left. That window was closed.

There was another light directly over it, and that window was partly open. The. shade was drawn, but there was perhaps nn inch of space between it and the sill. Something that looked like a sheet of while tissue paper fluttered on the sill. AS he watched, the paper was caught in an eddy of. wind. H turned tin (he sill and writhed, it rose and fell as if it were alive, and spiralcd down into the court. "What was that?" Miss Brady's voice was like a whip. "A sheet, of tissue paper, 1 think. It came from I ho top floor, the room over the one \ve just left." "Oh. For a minute I thought— That's my bedroom. Stnail and the place is a mess. She isn't very tidy." Have you got a music box in your bedroom?" 'Not any more. 11 She was startled. "Why?" "I thought I heard something that sounded like a music box. It's slopped now/' "I did have one but it disappeared several days ago. Miss Small know how much I liked it so I suppose she found another to take its place," She laughed .softly. "Now I'll have lo act surprised, lha'.iks to you. . . . HcnUy, Mr. l-A\'A, we've got to get out of here. What comes next?" They were in the hall. "Miss Brady!"
