Even told me to forget about it. Naturally I won't do that." Well, it must be great lo be in a position to laugh of! SO G's. And ^Eve Wheeler undoubtedly was. ~ "Good," I said. "At toast you won't lose a customer." And now that he had Eve off his mind, I asked him to give me a few minutes. He grunted that it was very late but came on in to the sludy. I \vent straight to the point. "I want a check-up on Ames Warburton's movements," I told him. "From the time he left the office till he got down here that day." That was the way I put it As a mailer of fact, ! envisioned a check-up (hat would go a lot further. "Sure," Cravath said, "go on up to Now York and do what you like. You don't have to baby-sit with me day and night. I'm be-inning to think that's all foolish- "f 5, anyhow." "1 don't." He shot me a hard direct look. "You think we're not finished with this thing?" "I'm taking no chances. Besides, there's a fellow in New York nnmerl Harr. on who can do the checking-up cctler than I could Investigating is Us business. H« does nothing else.* "Get him started then." Crlvath arose, yawning. I sal on in the study for a while leaned back in my chair, lit a cigaret and slared at the cups photographs, et al, which told the saga of Cravath's athletic ability. It was one of the best things I've ever done. Cravath had switched on but one light. That threw a subdued radiance, glinting softly 'off the silver and bronze of cups, nlaques and medals, highlighting the glossy prints of the pholographs. Hut, because of the peculiar way in which its beam slanted, one item in particular was outlined in bold relief. The thing was literally screaming at me—and for once Orth, the dumb dick, got the cotton out of his ears. It I was right, I'd put together a chance remark and a lucky idea and made them spell M-U-RD-E-R. But I was still a million miles from a proo?. I wonl lo bed that night morally sure that I knew the killer of Ames Warburlon. But Just as morally sure that I couldn't do a thing about that clever and able operator. •IIS fellow Dick Harrison ts a colorless little man upon whom the average individual wouldn't waste a second look. Maybe his nconspicuousness accounts for his success as an Investigator. In the detective Iracle he Is inown as The Ferret—the idea being that, if it's diggable, Harrison will dig It ouL The Ferret was prompt to the rendezvous al Ihe Madison House. He oozed into the bar without ittracting any visible attention. t bought him a beer. That he slated, was his plebian preference. Then, coming out flatfooied with names, 1 outlined what I wanted him to do. I ordered r«dUt AiUc that W remarked: "This will involve considerable time and legwork." , I knew, was his delicate way of pointing out that it would cost considerable cash. I reassured him on this point. "I thought you always took (axis," I said. "But, skipping that money may be your object. It isn't my client's. The big thing here is to keep this as private as possible. If I'm barking up the wrong free, and any of these people get adverse publicity without a good reason, there will be a bigger and belter murder. Cravath will build It around me." stuff?-"' h ° W ** ' M " d *" my "You bring it to me, here. And you don't call me at Windover 1 call you in New York, see how you re doing, and make a date If you think you've got anything important Now how long will it be before I give jou a ring?" He squinted. "Three days, say. Looks like I'm going to have lo run all over New York " All right," I said. "Catch »« Tt^train back and start run- He left me without another word. To , illustrate how unobtrusively he got out of there— our solicitous waiter, noting empty glasses, came over presently With one eye on the door ol the men's room and the other on the im- x>tent containers, he asked if we'd have two more of the same. I said no, just one, my friend had gone The waiter went away, looking puzzled.
