IMC xxxi v \ BLAST from the pistol rever- r * berated through the room and Roddy hoard the sound of shattering pottery behind him. From his crouching position he made a blind Lackle at Tom O'NcLU's legs and heard Tom grunt as he hit the brick floor. Once more Roddy encountered T o m's astonishing strength as the older man thrashed around beneath him. He grabbed frantically for Tom's right arm. The gun thundered again. This time Reddy could feel the vibration of its mechanism under his hand—the hand locked around Tom's wrist. Reddy let go of the suddenly limp muscles. The cold sweat o! horror began to drain from his pores as, for a second or two, he stared down al the red pulp lha 1 had been Torn's face. Backing away, he stumbled ovei the broken figurine and lookec down at it stupidly. The blue clay and what it had concealed, were without significance now. Redd} sagged against the work bench staring at its untidy collection o objects that, unexplainably, hai assumed the mute poignancy of ; dead child's toys. Gradually, a distant pound in seeped into his consciousness. II took note of it numbly—somebod at Tom'» front door. A loude sound, now, a splintering, tearin sound. Chief Peters surged into th room. "Charlie! Did be gel you We heard the shots—" he broke o as his eyes found Tom O'Neill. Trotter came up behind bin followed by a patrolman. Pelers took oil his haf. "Murderer and all Ihnt," li mumbled, "but, in some way O'Neill was a likable old boy." Peters nodded. "Good thing. mean, good thing he blew bis ow head off instead of going for you He pointed to a streak of blood o Reddy's jacket, "What's that? Yo get jaicked someplace?" Reddy shook his bond and did ot look al the stain. "Tom's. We ere fighting for the gun." Peters buttoned his'gun into the otster on his hip: "Our friend nkov came around, finally. He able to tell us it was Tom ho'd clobbered him. Then he told where lo find the letters he'd wiped from Faker's secret box. ctnember how we searched the Uissinn's place? Well, those damn •tiers were there aU the time, ncked. to a board behind Hagar Blair's portrait where nobody VI avc thought of looking! Trotter old me you went hi-tailing ofl for noplace and after I read the otters, I figured you'd Rot wine Tom and headed up here-" * * • T the hospital the next day Stephanie, Hagar anrl Trotter stood at Yakov's bedside. The opcr ocket and an open piece of papei were in Stephanie's hands. Ah, yes. Dr. Urich." Yakoi drew a deep breath. "Well, it i; heir own doing. In one respect, -mi happy. My task is finished. 1 He turned lo Trotter: "To sum up, sir, in what you arc plcasd to call a nutshell, the paper tell the whereabouts of the remainde of the Orloft je>vcls~-of a vain second only to those of Ihe Crown which disappeared shortly afte the lerminalioii oE the CitarisL re gime." Hagar glanced nt Stephanie Iri umphantly: "See? This has noth ing to do with you at all. Th Orloft jewels. And the big clu right here in Dolorosa in you mother's locket!" When Yakov again began speak, every eye was on his lip "Colonel Sercnov, a close frien of the OrloEis, was said to kno the whereabouts of the jewels, was thought that they had bee hidden somewhere until a prop lious lime for their recovery b what remained of the Duke's fam ily. Colonel Screnov—" he pause and g hi need at Stephanie's siu nly white face "—unfortunately. c( with a fatnl accident. It was sunied that Madame Serenov, ho h;ul fled to America, carried ith tier the knowledge of where ie jewels were hidden. A certain crponage, who later was n.ucs oncd by the new government, gge^'.cd that Mine. Screnov'a moiLs cameo locket contaitied ic information that was sought." Yakov's voice trailed off as he irished with: "1 have merely been searching r information which would cable the Russian treasury lo obtain cw and much-needed resources. ''his I did because of certain obli- ntions which remain behind me the mother country." This Dr. UrEch probably has em all safe and sound at St. J etcrsburg College!" Hagar dc- idcd. Yakov shook bis head. "Dr. Urich was—J believe the popular erm is, liquidated—in 1039." * * + PROTTEH returned his pipe to the leather pouch. "What do 'on tliink is the significance of the ipccial edition of The Cherry Orchard' mentioned in the paper?" Yakov gave a slight shrug: 'That, also, hns been wheeling through my mind like a canopied cart. It would be unlikely that there would be a special bound edition of a single play—the work would not be of sutVicienl importance lo occupy an entire edition. I think, perhaps, that this very fact signifies lhat the book would not be what it appeared. Something which seemed to be an elaborately bound book, perhaps the type with a lillle lock across the pages, could, in reality, be something else. A ft tie little casket in which the OrlofT bracelets and rings and brooches and unset gems could rest quite snugly. So? It could quite possibly be that Dr. Urich's special edition of Mr. Chekov's play could be worth the disproportionate sum of 5,000,000, rubles. Undoubtedly, however. Dr. Urich look care thai this fabulous book was safely hidden away before he was brought to trial." Yakov sighed. "The quest will go on, but this time 1 shall not be among the hunters/' (To Be Continued) For Sale, Cars and Trucks NOW All ronr [-1 j wheels pull on the Willys Station Wagon.
