She wns subdued, a trifle sheepish, and cold sober. But everyone, particularly Eve Wheeler, did his host lo put her at case. And Eve's stock, already high with tne, climhcti a couple more points. The sight of Cravafh. mingling on occasion u-ilh hip prospective executioner, didn't help either. In far!, during one especially wenk moment, 1 even made an attempt to c^ll [he whole dangerous scheme olT. I drew Cravath aside armiml 4 o'clock. "I'm ncttini! cold feel." I «aid. "After all. who am I to suggest that you risk your life?" He shook hi.s hear! emphatically. f"Nr>ne of that now! [.ast niKht you sold me on the idea that it's the only way tn Rc-t this fellow, and I'm still buying it. Everything's set. I spoke to Jack this morning. to!tl him what you [old me to tell him. and he understands what he's to no." i did a little arguing, but it was hr,if-lie'"irtccT. But I had Iwo more jobs to do before the zero hour. One was routine —just to look over the ground. T RO| away after my little talk with Crnvnth and confirmed it. The evergreen I'd remembered was there, all right, Equal, thick, spreading. It would give me cover. The other job? I went hack toward the house by a circuitous mule, trying to look lik wilh nothing on his mind. Actually, my brain whirled and I had to make an effort to keep from break- ins into a run. I had tried to foresee how the mmdever would act, now that he had learned about the plans for tonight. Sometime during the clay, he would have to visit the attic! It was dangerous, with a good chance that he might be caught in a position which would have been highly difficult for him to explain. But that chance h« would have to run. For the Insl 50 yards of my walk back to the house, on the way to confirm an absolutely vital point, I'm nfraid that I didn't look much like a man with nothing on his mind. Providentially, I did not encounter any interference. I slipped up to the third lloor unobserved; went past the servants' quarters. I twisted an unresisting knob and entered the atlic. My heart pounded like some- tiling gone L-ra/y as I hurried down thnt long cluttered loft-like room. Then I was yanking the chest out from under the eaves, falling over it in a belly-flop. Another was gone. Windovor's killer was set to strike again. ATARSTON CRAVATH must have had steel fibers for nerves. And he might have made a very fair actor. Vou would never have suspected, from his deportment thai evening, that around midnight he was scheduled to pul his life on the spot. At II o'clock he yawned behind .1 hand steady as Gibraltar and announced that he was ready for bed. Dumonl and Sladen had spent the evening playing billiards, up to the 10 o'clock drink. They'd joined the rest of us then in the living room, where I'd tried to concentrate on a novel while the canasta went on. My efforts had been lamentable. I certainly envied Cravath and there was awe in the envy, Maybe, I thought, being to the manor born made some guys magnificent. Put them above the rurk: in a class hy themselves. Hul, however he'd been born, Marney Cravath was lops Ibis ninhl. A gent 1 wanted on my side, every time out. And so we went through the motions, of the occupants of a great house about to retire.

One of the seven wasn't as nice even as a rattlesnake. I timed my ascent of the stairs with Cravatli's. Despite his superb display, I was still leery. The man must have had qualms, doubts. The best I could do was catch his eye, as we parted to go to our respective rooms. Marston Cra- valh grinned at me, before turning away. He was actually enjoying this. In my own room I wasted no time. I peeled off my fancy dinner-clothes, got into the darkest slacks 1 owned and a black sweater. I slipped a businesslike .32 ] keep for emergencies into my hip pocket and picked up a flashlight. * • • 'J'HERK wasn't any difficulty about leaving the house. I stepped out into a welter of moonlight. The moon v.'as really riding. On the verge of putting my plan into execution, it had seemed to me lo be flimsy and inadequate, nnd the article of precaution I had chosen seemed equally flimsy. But I had no better idea and no better preventative article. These, thought, my idea and my instrument, would have to do." So I set forth aware of gooseflesh starting to rise on my arms and shoulders in positive bumps. I reached my car, having kept in shadow as much as I could on the way to it. The car was pulled aside on the grass, at the top of the little embankment down which the driveway to the garage slanted. I unlocked my car with a shaking hand. The other hand shook as well, when I had to use both to haul the thing out. N'ow that I had II, the accessory appeared fragile, unsubstantial for the job I expected to do. It seemed to have one virtue. The light green color of it, still a little sticky, and coming oft on my bands, should blend inconspicuously wilh the work of Ihe moonlight. Then I went to the Peacock Path. (T« B« Continued)
