"Same dnd that knock people off all the time. Ought to be a stricter law on those tilings. Coroner Hughes said the pills alone probably wouk have done for Falter. That's the one good clue we've got. The murderer must'vc been drinking wine with Falter—granting tha the same person did the poisoning and the stabbing." As the police car pulled up In front of Fatter's, Reddy found parking place after some difficult and followed the chief through swarm of people to the porcl where Police Officer Abrams wn keeping sightseers away.

The chief reached lown and explorer! a wood frame lt in neatly on a level with the jollom of the mattress, "Kept something here." Redd> chewed his undcrlip thoughtfully 'Box of some kind, probrjoly." Suddenly he made a dash for lie other room. 'Chief!" he called. "This is it,' rie strode through the door carry- ng a narrow box of unpaintec wood.

Of the other two men, Yakov looked first at the dapper, middle-aged one with sandy hnir who held n fragrantly smoking briar pipe in one well- kept hand. The third man was young, handsome, well-built, and had sharply intent gray eyes, Yakov gave the trio a pleasant nod: "Yes, gentlemen?" Chief Peters was equally pleasant: "Mr. Andrey Yakov?
