"Found your car Miss Curtis," he said. "Figured thai whoever shot at you at Horseshoe Spnngf probably wanted to g e t that bullet out of your car. Ho was the same person, maybe, who is responsible for the olher dirt around here." "Where'd you find it?" I nsked "Down on the rocks below the clift. It's a mess, and Ihe bullet's gone." He hesitated a moment and added, "I guess you know Elsie Martinson drove a car like yours " After the sergeant left, I thought of Mrs, Ordell. still imprisoned in the cave, of her husband still grief-slricken over the belief that she was dead. Perhaps David had gone to Mrs. Ordell now. 1 looked at the Professor who stood by the window, stooped tired, his pale face set in sad lines' as he watched puffy white clouds gathering over Old Baldy. My sympathy and natural liking for him overcame my memory of Mrs. Ordeil's request for me to lell Bob of her imprisonment in Ihe cave and nnl lo tell the Professor, On impulse, 1 decided lhat I would be the one lo tell him the glad ne-.vs. 1 opened my Ifps lo speak when a commotion and voices on the lodge porch stopped me. Sergeant Duncan entered escort- 'lng a woman by th« arm. She *-'as a large, rather coarse 1 looking woman, prettjr tflar • fcuWoo, with thick, curly auburn red hair and Irish eyes, A clatter of horses' hooves accompanied their entrance and David Roberts swung oft a badly lathered hor.w. I did not imagine that David would to misuse a hors*. Th« Doctor cam« up to the lodg. step* thre« at a time. He w»« dlrly wtih splashed mud and duit and looked lired to the point of collapse. "II you folks wfii very kindly follow me," he said, "I shall lake you lo an unusual and impromptu inquest. J believe that we have the murderer, Ihe killer who murdered Elsie Martinson and who stabbed Mrs. Ordell." £)AVID began herding ail O f us out of the lodge and up the trail, toward the stream. I spoke lo Susie, who lay quietly suffering "Wait, good dog, I'll come back to you." We did not go to the water hole T was thankful for that. Instead we went up the shoulr 1 *- of the mountain where the willows had slood when I crawled from the passageway. Now the bushes lay In a heap iprooted beside a pile of damp enrlh and rocks. The entrance lo the cave had been enlarged until by sleeping, one could cnlcr Ihe rocky liltle lunnel wilh comparative ease. David and I entered first After the sunshine of the oulcr world the large room of the cave seemed very dim in spile o[ Ihe candles that glowed bravely Gradually I began to see more plainly. Mrs. Ordell slill lay in the bunk against the wall but looker! less pale and much happier. A bright tire burned on the rude hearth and a big pail of coftce simmered fragrantly on th« iron crane over the fire. And then I taw th« m»n of ttit the rocky wall, all but indisccrn, ible in the dim light. He stepped forward to greet us. He was wearing a pair of faded overalls nnd > blue work shirt, which though unironed, were clean. His hair was slicked down wilh wnter as neally .is a school boy's. He was clean shavert and one could see that he had dressed very carefully. He camo quielly to meet us. 1 remembered my abject terror the first lime I saw the cave. Yet this man who slood before us was not at all frightening. Just a rather small, stocky countryman with one of the saddest faces imaginable. David spoke quickly as he heard the group coming through the passageway to the cave:. "Miss Curtis, this is Snm Burdick. Mr Burdick saved Mrs. Ordeil's life and deserves a great deal of credit." Again confusion confounded me. Here before me slood Ihe man I had reason lo believe might be Mrs. Ordeil's assailant. This man whom I had believed to be nothing less than a monster extended his r.and nnd so strong is the lirge of convention, I shook his hand. Then the Professor saw Mrj Ordell. glLKNTIA' he stared at her for a long unbelieving second. Then wilh a low sob he ran to her and threw himself upon his knees beside the bunk, catching her gently, hut oh so protcclingly, in his nrms. "Mamie," he wept. "Oh. Mamie. You arc safe. Oh, 1hmk Gorl Why did you not send word lo me that you were here? HrT< this man hurl you? Who hint you my darling? Oh, my dear, how can I ever make up to you for such neglect?" His words tumbled from his lips as his voice shook with tenderness and emotion. Mrs. Ordell gently smoothed the thin hair on his head as tears slowly ran Jown her pale checks. Dr. Roberts interrupted this pa- Ihclie scene. "Now, Professor, will yon and the others seal yourselves and we will gel through this ai quickly as possible. We all have some explaining to do."
