He paused now and then to stare down at the evening paper which lay unfolded on the floor, its large, black headlines revealing that Hagar Blair hod been jailed on suspicion of murder. Not that he gave a tinker's dam about Hagar, he told himself. Not that old witch! But it was the principle of the thing. He could go down to the police station appalling as the idea was—and tell the ruffians the story, or he. eould wait until they summoned him. He chewed ofT a sliver of fingernail as a dreadful thought struck his brain: What would happen if certain people should suspect he had put two and two together? He peeled, oil his smock and threw it on the floor. He shrugged un a jacket and started for the hall, only to be stopped in his tracks by the clacking of the knocker on his front door. He. stood motionless for a few minutes, his eyes darting from side to side as he considered how to escape. The knocker sounded again, violently this time. Arnold snatched up his sandals and dashed to the window that overlooked the back yard He opened it carefully, fearful of every small squeak. Throwing his sandals out flrst, he climbed over the sill and took the short jump to the ground. Mesmerized by their nriv=.>z disturbing thoughts neither Ar nold Pfk'iler nor Audrey Ynko\ noticed each other \vhcn thei routes crossed briefly on Magnoli., stieet. And neither noticed a third man whom they bolh knew—,1 stockily built man distinguished by a totally bald head and a half- empty coat sleeve that was pinned up neatly below the left elbow. The bald man glanced curiously at each of them for a few seconds from the opposite side of Ihe street, then turned and walked back briskly in the direction from which he had come. VAKOV beside turned Into the drive Hagar Blair's shingled house. With luck" . , though], he could conclude' _ he uld conclude mission tonight. He glanced at (he lighted windows: Perhaps within the next hour! Stephanie answered his ,„,,; promptly, her smile fading as she recognized him. Yakov's chuckle sounded sympathetic: "You were expecting someone else? I am so sorry." .Stephanie stared at him doubtfully then unhooked the screen door end pushed it open. Yakov stepped inside. "Thank you, Miss — Sercnov!" Stephanie sank onto a hassock in front of the fireplace, her wide eyes fixed on Yakov's face: "Who are you?" she whispered. "How did you learn my name?" Yakov laughed shortly. "Who am !? You ask the question as (hough possibly I were a ghost. I am Ana'rey Ynkov, of course, artist and a collector — of cameos," Stephanie stared at him in silence, watching him till his hc,i<l and blow smoke toward the ceiling. "As for your name," he paused and smiled triumphantly, "it was a guess. I am only surprised that poor iVellya did not guess that you were her sister's child.

You know what is inside?" "I've always known what is in- Slrie. My mother's picture nnd my father's. I'll not give it to you for even a few hours." Yakov sank back. "Pictures? I'hat is all, you arc sure. No writ- ng of any kind?" "Writing? What kind of writing?" "An engraving, or perhaps a bit of paper with writing?" The girl shook her head. Yakov fingered his mustache houglitfully. "You must be tnis- akcu." he said slowly. "There mist be something. Will you al- ow me to examine the locket?" "No." "Not even lo gel Miss Blair oul of jail?" "Would you give me the letters •ou say you have if I let you look at the cameo here?" "Yes." quarely. (To He Continued) He met her glance Thompson.
