That jwas about 20 years ago when he |was an awful old man. Every ,once in a while I've written an- iother note and put it In a new box or trunk so's if ever anybody should find the map and dig for the treasure, he could find the note. I'd ki.ow if he was in these parts and give the walch if he wanted it and the money too, if that was his." David said. "How much monev is loft. Sam?" 11 'Bout $50. What I'd like to know is-how'd the crazy story of Bold ever get out anyhow?" • • • j"r)EKE ALVORD, who I, the L editor of th« San Francisco Journal, came up here on a flsh- ing trip," David explained. "A guide told him the story. He wrote it up and sent Miss Curtis up here on a vacation so that if a story of treasure hunting should break, she would be on hand. She knew nothing of all this. I r as you know am a Federal man, Sam, Our office saw the story about gold; also the state police had notified us that they had received word of threatening letters being sent lo Miss Martinson who was buying this parcel o( land. There was evidently some truth to this gold yarn and it became my business to investigate. I cerlainly did" not guess that the situation would precipitate a murder. "Elsie Martinson was frying to buy the Lake land from the Sacramento bank. Miss Martinson had managed a resort in the Maine woods. Mr. and Mrs. j arnes had failed to make good for money borrowed from the bank and so foreclosure ensued. Is that true Mrs. James?" She flushed 3 painful red and nodded as her eyes filled with tears. "J;.mes wrote letters to Miss Martinson, hoping to inlimidate her, until he found the treasure But he couldn't find the treasure " David continued. "Then James had anolher idea He went to the University to see Professor Ordell to tell him of the situation and to ask help in hunting for lh« treasure. You probably know thnt Ordell Is a geologist " "He told me absolutely nothing about the letters," broke in the Professor. "I'm sure that he didn'l. But you agreed to come to the Lodge and hunt for the money. I'm. not accusing you, Professor." Dnvid continued. "Unfortunately Miss Martinson's death was promoted probably by an affliction. She was very hard of hearing. When she told the slate police about the l«tler», thejr told hei u} •y J. R.

She evidently misunderstood and she started out alone, reaching the high mountains well after dark. We know that she drove safely as far as Horseshoe Springs where she bought some gas and asked the way to Gold Lake from old Jim. Half an hour later, Sergeant Duncan and Officer Marguard who patrol that stretch of highway found her murdered in her car. • • • "WITHIN a short lime Miss Curtis arrived at Horseshoe Springs in her green coupe. It seems fanlaslie that both she and • Miss Martinson should both drive similar cars and that both should have red hair, but such was the case. However, Miss Martinson was in her fifties and Miss Curtis is still in her twenties and different in all other ways. Jim hesitated about coming out ot the house after the murder only a short time before but when he heard a woman's voice, the kind old man wanted to warn her. When he saiv Miss Curtis by the dim light of the electric lantern he carried, she frightened him thoroughly. Her red hair and green car were loo similar to the murdered woman's. Then Ihc rifle shot put an end to any warning he might Rive her. But the shot was not really intended for you. Rosemary, il was intended for Jim T.oomis." "Not for me?" I gasped. "No, you were quite harmless in the eyes of the person who held that rifle. Jim believes that he sold the shell killed Elsie Martinson. Together with the coroner, the officers removed the bullet from the body when they reached Blue Valley. Is that true, Duncan?" "Yes, the bullet had been disturbed. The murderer probably tried to dig ft out, but was scared off. It was a 30-30 shell, the kind Jim soils. And it'll probably work out that it was Tired from the rifle found In the barn loft tins morning. Our ballislics men will be able to tell."

The 26 svere once commanders of forces under young King Peter of Yugoslavia. In 1941, they look part in Ilic fight against the Nazi invasion. As Hitler's hordes swept ahead, they were imprisoned. When the Allies occupied Germany, they were housed in the 60-room Varlar castle near Duesseldorf. Marshal Tito regards the 26 as monarchists and if they tried to return, it probably would mean prison. So the 26 ppnerals, the youngest of whom is 52. are living on German charity. Each of them is given his lodging, a simple board, and six cents a day for pocket money. We'll gi,. Lhcrn • nev I ook--and • 1 o n ge r I e a s« on life! RENEW-RESTYLE H-flLTCRS Kflt.
