Detectives scour estate for Dick
Berkeley while Dundee recon-
structi crime which he believes
was Impromptu and committed by
a member of the household all of
whom become suspect?. After
girl' body ts removed from sum-
merhouse by voroner Dundee and
Strawn go to house where In-
mates are in ignorance that the
girl did not commit suicide but
has been murdered. Strawn makes
the startling announcement and
adds that Dundee Is to assist him
In solving the murder.
NOW GO ON WITH THE STORY
George Berkeley broke the sil-
ence. "Naturally we're clad to
nave air. uunuee with us though hid her face agaln3t Mrs. Lam-
I am afraid his visit" he began ibert's breast as her father pro-
"I'll explain Mr. Berkeley" Cap-
tain Strawn assured him. "Mr.
Dundee is what I'd call n mighty
clever amateur detective though
being what you might call an cld-
fashioned regular I don't usually
have much use for amateurs.
Criminologist I believe. Is the
word he uses. He's studied Scot-
land Yard methods and Just this
summer he did me a good turn on '
the biggest murder case we've ever
had in Hamilton. Gettinc material
for books on the subject that's
his game. He writes shorthand
too and he's going to take down
what you folks have to tell me "
"A detective" Are you really a
detective. Bonnie Dundee'" GIgl face was flushed and his nostrils
cried springing from Mrs. Lam- flaring as he answered "Certaln-

rupted himself sternly though he
could not keep hi eyes from
twinkling at her. "Now is every-
body hcrfc? Are you Mrs Berke-
ley ma'am?" he asked politely
turning to Mrs Lambert.
Color swept over Mrs. Lambert's
still Sreautlful but tired face. "I
am Mrs. Lambert Mrs. Berkeley's
secretary." he said her voice
low but very clear
"My wife Is still sleeping I be

stiffly. "At any rate shs haa not

been to her room to tell her that
anything Is wrong. It Is or

"Well go up and speak to her

No one moved or spoke for a
long minute then Gfgl who had
again returned to the shelter of
Mrs. Lambert's arms laughed hys-
terically. "What! No confessions?" she
cried then burst Into tears and
nounced her name sternly.
"Do you know where your son Is

"Dick?" The millionaire showed
blank surprise. "In his room I
suppose. It 13 still rather early

"My daughters Clorinda and

tightening over the last name.
"Oh So this Is Mr. Seymour
Crosby?" Strawn pretended vast
surprise. "I've read a lot about
you Mr. Crosby always thought
I'd like to meet you" he added
his yes narrowing significantly;
Seymour Crosby flushed but
bowed without replying.
"Sorry you've got to run up

room Dundee hurrying after him.

"Good Lord! Does he think
she's dead too?" he asked him-
self. But at that moment a qunrelous
volcd called out: Why are you
knocking Doris? For heaven's
sake come on in! I can't bear

Striwn and Dundee exchanged
glances as the millionaire called

the darkened windows which filled
the semi-circle formed by the

halted just Inside the door while
George Berkeley In a low voice
explained that Strawn was a cap-

guest as an amateur criminologist
was there as his assistant.
"But what la the workl arc de-

"If you'll pardon me Mr. Berke-

to inform you that Doris Mat-

"Murdered!" the woman jrasped.
Then she whispered the word her
lip like red crepe paper qulver-

Then she lay back on her pillows
her disheveled hennaed head roll-
ing the wrinkled lids falling over
her faded hard eyes.
"And I must also Inform you
Mrs. Berkeley" Captain Strain
went on implacably unmercifully
"that your son Dick Is missing.
He did not sleep In his room last
night and we know that he made
an appointment to meet the girl
after the family was in bed."
As he spoke the woman began
to lift herself In bed her ravaged-
face turned toward the detective.
