JOHNNY MARK, REALTOR Office Phone 4111 R,,. Phone 259g XVIII !^OW Alma Conroy remembered •*- ' the curious fact that Mrs. Denton had "come to say gooclby" a full day in advance of going on her trip to Mexico. There was also that little business of dropping that handkerchief. What had that handkerchief contained? Its contents, if any, could easily have been spilled in between the slaLs of the grille on the eve of the floor being taken up by Higgins, the new gold-buj'ing company! The Albert and Victoria pin was small. Mrs. Denton, it was r.ow obvious, could have taken it, or anything else she wished, out of those inaccessibly placed cases in the appraisal department. And of course, Mrs. Ucnton was about the only person at Trumbull's who would not be suspecled.. The more she thought of it the more sure Alma became that there had been something concealed in the handkerchief the old woman had dropped. Had it been the British jewel or something else? " Perhaps Mrs. Denlon had the pin in her possession at this very moment, intending to claim the $20,000 reward. But no, that idea was nonsense! She would not dare attempt doing anything so direct. The floor of the workroom must hold the solution of the thefts. But it was slrange that Mrs. Denton should be going !o Mexico. Alma's heart skipped a beat at the suspicion this thought gave rise. How much was Joe involved? And Tommy—what part had he in this whole affair? Had he and Joe been playing some sort of crooked game together? No, that simply didn't make sense. She couldn't think of a mortal scrap of evidence which linked the activities of Tommy and Joe fr, many weeks past. • * * CHE stood on the street corner, 0 hesitant, wondering what U> By Nina Wilcox Putnam I9S1 ky NEA S«mc«, fat. do next, the shoe-box heavy under her arm. She felt as though she had been carrying it forever. A glance at her watch showed her that it was already after 4 o'clock. She had promised to meet Tommy at 5 with the money. Now she had neither the cash nor any certainty about when if ever she would see her husband again. It was too late to go back to Trumbull's even if she had felt able to do so. She simply had to go someplace where she could hold her aching head and think things out quietly, yet she was almost afraid to return to her apartment. The o reurn o er apartment. The police might e»me: might already be there, waiting. But there did not seem to be any other place to go. Reluctantly she turned toward home. Even before she used her latchkey she knew that Tommy was in the flat. There were no voices but she could hear his light, dancer- like tread pacing the floor. That extra sense which was the basic essence of their relationship. tugged at her intimately, telling her that he was impatient and anxious, wishing for her violently. And a sort of holy rage swept over her. This, she thought, Is going to be a showdown to end all showdowns. I am going to call on everything decent wh/ch has ever existed between us. and use it to wring the truth out ot him if it kills us both. No matter what that truth is, no matter how it hurLs or what facing it lets us it) tor, we arc going to face it together and take whateve punishment is necessary. There is going to be no more fooling myself about Tommy, no more condoning what he does, no more prolecUng him. He's going to stand on his own two feet now— either beside me, or away from me. But heaven give me strength, he's going to stand! Opening her pur»« Alma tosit (AKK.) CWKTER KB By J. R.

Tommy was home. * • * TXJMMY turned toward her with a quick, anxious gesture his face tired and drawn. "Did you get it?" he asked im- medialely. Anna did not answer. She threw her furs and her pack- nge onto the sofn and stood facing lim, her eyes fixed steadily on his, waiting for his reaction as she shook her head slowly in answer to his question. Then she uncurled her hand and let him s« what she held inside it. But Tommy did nothing dramatic. He merely raised his eyebrows in mild curiosity. "Hello!" he said. "Where on earth did you get that?" Then a petulant shadow crossed his face. 'Now I suppose there will b« a row about my having given them away!" he added, defensively. She was watching every gesture he made, every shadow of expression on his face, and now .relief flooded her. Tommy was no actor. She had always been able to «« through his best pretenses and he was not acting now. But she had to make perfectly certain. "That depends on whom you gave them to," she said evenly. 'That shirt you have on, Tommy—' let me sec the cufls!" He held them up so that she could see he was wearing a pair of plain gold links which he'd had for years. "What on earth are you driving at, Jewels?" he demanded. "I gave those moonstone links to Bright Muncic, if you want to know the truth. I wore them one day and he admired them a lot I'd had a few drinks, so 1 insisted on his taking them and he's been wearing them ever since. 1 waj afraid to tell you, after you'd gone to so much trouble making them especially for me.
