Then she called out wildly. j "Helpt Help!" f There was, apparently, no one tiear enough to hear her, and with a super-effort she fought down her rising panic. She must not yell, Mfce that, she must keep her head 1—do something! ' Where were an the people who belonged in the outer office? Would they never come back? Strug- 4 gling against the shock and the " nightmarish feeling of unreality she tried to think clearly. What ought she to do? Find some other office on the floor and tell what had happened? Ring for the elevator man, call the police? That ,was it, of course! 1 The tight thing to do was to 'cail the police! But if she did she ought to stay there—right where she was with that—that thing lying on the floor! Besides If she called the police, she would be questioned. The box of old trinkets she carried would be examined, her need for selling them pried into. Her name would come out m the newspapers— Tommy's name too. And Tnim- bull's. That was almost the worst aspect of the whole wretched situation; The House might be Involved, for this dead man, who :)ooked as if he must be Important, possibly the very person who had ,dea.'t with The House In years ttiai fact, and the whole revolting publicity would roroc about because she, Alma Conroy, had come to sell jewelry -because her husband who also worked st Tram- bull's wa< in trouble! K was a grim picture, but wh»t wa« jhe to do except her obvious duty? Could ihe t«lephoo« the police anonymously? For » long moment *h« stood looking at the telephone her heart beating wildly with fear and doubt. Thea, just as she wat about to take the phone out of its cradle, a bright object In a far comer of the room caught her eye. Something small and gleaming. Even at that distance its stupe was instantly familiar. She went cold all over and her hand froze In mid-air over the telephone. The few steps which it took to cross the office felt leaden and endless She picked the thing up, seeing If through a sickening fog of terror. But she had not been mistaken. It Vas one of the gold and moonstone cud-links she had made tor Tommy and which had been missing from the shoe-box that morning. How had rt got here? Even while she asked herself the question she remembered a sickening fact. That morning Tommy had put on a shirt which required links! Suddenly everything In the picture was changed. With her old. unbreakable instinct to protect Tommy, "Alma slipped the cufflink into her purse and, galvanized into action, made for the door. Now H was Impossible to telephone the police, anonymously or otherwise. She must get away and get away fast. Nobody must know that she'd been in the plscs, and she must leave without being seen H possible. • • • HE corridor outside was still THE eorridoi K swiftly, but with as much composure as she could muster, the •adio bluing after her. At th« far end o* the haB sh« found a stairway and ran down three flights. Then, after leaning against the wall of the stair-well while stre caught her breath the forced herseJf to walk quietly to » (Hfferwit elerator from the one she had come up in, and pressed the down signal. A tew moments later she was mingling with the crowds on the tunny street. Alma walked rapidly for several blocks without the faintest idea of where tht wai going or what she was going to do. The shoe-box was still clutched tightly under one arm, while Inside her purse Ihe tell-tale cuff-link seemed to inirn: she felt as though it must, in some mysterious manner, show through tht thick folds of the leather. For the moment the urgent necessity for raising money for Tommy was completely wiped out of her mind by the storm of doubt and suspicion which her adventure had aroused. What had Tommy been doing in the Mammoth Company's offices? Surely, surely he could not have been alonel He couldn't have done this thing—he couldn't! But he was involved. People who were mixed up In murders were— accessories, yes, that was the word. J?VEN at its worst the situation seemed utterly Inexplicable. Why on earth should Tommy wish to kill Mr. Wheeler? He didn't even know the man so far as she was aware. Why should Tommy have gone there at 811? The price he might have got for those cufl- links would have been a mere fraction of the sum he needed. No, he would hardly have gone there to sell them, especially In view ot her promise to get the money. It wasn't like Tommy to exert himself when he could get someone else to do » Job for him. All at once, the false strength which had carried Alma Conroy this far, began to fail her She couldn't think clearly and she had to have help and ativice. Turning to Papa Victor Blanchard was out of the question.
