Dr. Kloppel wrapped t^ie box in
a clean handkerchief and placed
it in the center of his table. The
old-fashioned chandelier shed a
cold white tight. The box looked
like a little coffin, shrouded
"Miss Brady's box, stolen from
Blackman's. Miss Brady's box."
Dr. Kloppel hated his own words.
"You can't accuse that lady of
theft. You can't even accuse her
of murder. It isn't fitting!"
"But her box did murder once,
and tried it a second time. Unless
Lillian Harris knocked herself out
for a red herring."
"No," Dr. Kloppel said. "You
didn't see those heads and I did."
He reached out and touched the
box gingerly. "It hurt, Mr. East.
It was cruel and painful and slow,
blow after blow." He withdrew his
hand and rubbed it. "What do we
"We act like honest taxpayers
and yell help, murder, police. Who
was on the case before?"
"Foy, for about five minutes.
He's a very busy man. He looked
tip at the window, shook his bead
and said, 'Pity.'"
•"1 know Foy. CaU him up to-1
night, after I leave. Tell him
you're dissatisfied, the Harris de-
velopment will cover that. Say
you've talked to me. Then he'll
call me, and IH tell him how 1
got on to it and what I've done.
I'U still work from my end, Foy
will understand that. Give him
the box and the suitcase."
Dr. Kloppel said. "I like Foy as
a poker player, but you've got
mose than he has."
"Dr. K., I'm touched. But Foy
has the pretty badge. He can put
a dozen men in Hope House and
better where it is. Even-if it be- 'n6body can stop him. He can pat
his holster while he asks ques-
tions and blow his whistle and get
an army." He stood up then. "I've
got a couple of, stops to make on
my way home, so III be going."

D1S first stop was at Mrs. Mar-
Shan-Gill's. She was de-
lighted to talk to him.
I Yes, indeed, she said, she had
gone upstairs quite early in the
evening. So warm, so crowded,
and a little cold water on the back
of the neck was always refreshing
So she had asked ""iss Brady if she
might use Miss Small's mom, Miss
Small being engaged elsewhere,
and Miss Brady had given grudg-
"Now, Mrs. Marshall-Gill," he
said, "I think you returned to the
party at about 9 o'clock, or very
near to it. Did you walk down,
Mrs. Marshall-Gill said. "Walk?
Really, Mr. East!" She added,
"Yes?" , ■'
"Insubordination. Fin tempted
to report the girl at the next Board
meeting. I rang and rang. I could
have walked down in half the
time I waited but the girt is paid
to operate the elevator and I was
determined that she should. And
when she finally condescended—"
Mrs. MarshaQ-GilF faltered. •
"Then she did—condescend?"
"Finally. Finally. It was a very
odd thing, very odd. I can't truth-
fully say she was impertinent,
simply because she refused to
speak to me, but she was posi-
tively venomous in manner. I was
really disturbed, after all I've done
for the House, deficits and so on.
And Jewel—" Mrs. Marshall-Gill
drew closer to the fire. "Mr. East,
I feel uncomfortable even now
when I think of it. Venomous,
hateful, I can't describe it except
to say that she wasn't at all nice.
... I think she was thinking
things about me."
He drew closer to the ftre him-
self. "Go on, Mrs. Marshall-Gill."
"A naughty girl," she said firm-
ly. "I suspect she'd been drinking
or smoking in her room, which is
forbidden to employes. She went
right up again, put me off at the
first floor, and went right up
again. No apology for keeping
me waiting. That's whatAappens
when you coddle these people.
Dressed up like one of the bond-
ers. tolling and slouching and
probably making faces at me be-
hind that mask. And a beauty
spot, too. Impertinence.'*
He picked his words carefully
after that. He didn't want her
around his neck, screaming.
"Do you know anything about
that beauty spot, Mrs. Marshall-
"Know about it? Certainly not.
What should I know? Showing
Then. "You got in the car at the
fifth floor. Do you remember
where it went when she took it up
"I remember very well. I
watched the little wretch. She
lives on second, but she went up
to the eighth. That's under the
roof. She was going to walk ftp to
the roof and smoke and drink."
He gloated silently. "1 suppose
you talked to Jewel when she took
you up to Miss Small's?"
"Why, yes. Why, how strange!
She did talk that time, surly, of
course, but she did talk. I (fore-
say she'd quarreled with someone
in the meantime. They, always
quarrel, people like that"'
"Was she wearing the beauty
"Was she—oh, no. I'd have no-
ticed and commented. No. not
then. That's probably one of the
things she was doing when I was
in Miss Small's. Sewing it on,
making herself conspicuous. Up-
