He was neither tall nor short, nor fat nor lean, nor dark nor light. No feature of his face was unusual or prominent As a detective, he needed ; no disguise, since there was nothing about him to catch or to hold the attention, much the memory, What Qucripel liked best was a case in which he could prevent a crime, before it was committed Unraveling mysteries and follow-! ing the footsteps of hit-and-run killers bored him. He had heard only the first few words from Azalea Palmer wlien Ihe decided that the,case was not !for him. The" crime whs done. |The logical candidate for the honors was in jail. ] His heart ached for the poor . IHtle rich girl whose wealth and beauty had brought her such woes, but there \vt\s nothing he could do about itifurther than to be as kind as he cctild and ease her out of his oflice inlo the care of her ; friends and the help of all-healing uzzling over the color of the girl's eyes. That was the only mystery 'ie saw before him. Of course, the fact that Azalea Palmer was almost blinded wit) .ears confused him, but he wa :empted to decide that the colo of her eyes was all colors. As th ;cm-cutter splits the white Ugh of the diamond into facets tha flash forth liny rainbows; Queripel decided that Azate Palmer's eyes were of all colors iridescent, gleaming with a shut lling light. If only diamonds caul be tender and piliful! ff only diamonds could wecpl Anyway, her eyes were diamond's dripping with ruin. Being the daughter oE the immensely wealthy Wendell Palmer, she had been used to giving orders to servants. She had been used lo being gracious about it, but she wns giving orders now to Queripel, of all people. those got to save Paul from fiends who arrested him merely because Ihey found his fingerprints everywhere. I suppose you still think I'm horrible for defending the murderer of my father. They say I couldn't have loved my father. But I did! I do! Thai's why I want you to find the real murderer and release the innocent man I love. You've got lo! You've got lo! Or I'll—I'll kill you!" He had to smile n HUle at [hat; but with deep sympathy. For Qucripel know, all ton well, what sufferings criminals inflict on the devoted souls who waste on them undeserved and ill-requited love, Queripel often said: SHEET METAL WORK OF ALL KINDS Custom work for gins, alfalfa mills, oil mills.

"So I've heard. So was Ben- venulo Cellini—a great artist and a great criminal. He killed foui men and was proud of it. An artist ~\& is necessarily an inventor, an impersonator.

I understand thai Paul Moody had a very hot temper and your father had done everything he could to hurt the young man's pride, and finally he prc- venled him. not only from marrying you but from winning a big and lucrative commission.
