H CHAPTER VII Continued.
HJ "Win. It the three of you
HJj went o: uay In tlie runabout, Cup-
HJ tain West?" nuked Sexton.
Hj "To a house over In the factory tils-
HJ trlct; Borne chnrlty case that CooIUIrc
HJ was Interested In the widow of one
HJ of his employees, I believe.
HJ "Did you see the people?"
HJ "No, I didn't ro In; waited outside
Hj In the car; It wns no nffnir of mine.
HJ Why?" he asked In surprise.
Hj "necnusc, sir, Miss Natalie seemed
HJ like a different person when she got
H back. Not In looks, or nothing like
H that, I, don't mean, but In the way
she talked and acted. Nothing suited
H her all the rest of the day. You
i H know how she wns to you, sir. Well
' B she was Just that snappy with nil of
us, even after wc brought the body
back to the house. And she wouldn't
m look at him, sir, not even after he was
tf dressed proper nnd laid out."
V "I hardly believe," suld West
thoughtfully, "you can attribute her
state of mind to anything that oc-
currcd on tliat trip. Indeed she was In
high spirits all the way home."
"I can't help that, sir," Sexton In-
listed blindly. "It was something that
I happened yesterday what set her
J wrong, an' If I was you, sir, I'd find
H out what happened In tbnt house first
of all. Could you tlnd tho pluco?"
"Yes, I think so. I'll look it up, al
H though I don't have much faith In your
fl theory." lie glunccd at his watch. "I'll
B to out there now. You come back here
B about five, and we will talk over any
- Hj discoveries I may make."
M "And whut shall I do, sir?"
S Moth were stundlng, West with hand
H on tho knob of the door. Tho light In
a BJ bis eyes hardened.
1 H "NotlUng occurs to uie now, Sexton,
H anles.1 you can find an excuse to return
H t0 Fulrluwn, after something you have
H forgotten, let us say. If wo can lenrn
BJ what Miss Natalie proposes doing It
BJ might turnlsh a clue."
H "Very well, sir, and I am to be here
Bj at Qvo o'clock?"
Bj "Yes, at five ; I will leave word with
.H the doorman to show you in at once."
HJ West picked up a taxi-cab for the
HJ trip, bidding the chauffeur to drive to a
BT certain section of the city, nnd then
Hf1 up and down the various streets un
Hf i til told to stop. Ills conversation with
Hf 8exton had greatly strengthened his
He conviction that this was a murder,
Bj 8D(1 he had determined to ferret out
HJ the truth If possible. Yet, thus wr
HL there was nothing to build upon, no
HT clue, no, motive, np suspicion us to
Bj who had perpetrated the deed. He
HJ; (Imply faced a blank wall, In which no
MW cntrnnco was apparent, yet there must
HJ be one, If he was only fortunate
J oough to stumble upou It. Deep down
HJ ,D tils heart West wus conscious that
HJ he possessed a motive In this search

wlilch Is why I happen to know whnt
his name was. Something queer about
that fellar, I reckon, but 'taln't none
o my business. You ain't a detec

"Nothing at ul! like that," West
laughed, although Interested. "Why?

say, an' a younger one. I didn't see
'em only from tho window; didn't get
no sight o' the girl's face at ull, but
could tell the wuy she walked she

Feeling tho usplessness of trying to
leurn anything more, West thanked
him, nnd returned to the tnxl.
"llnck to the club," he ordered brief
ly, and setlled Into his scat to think".
The Information thus gained hnd
been Bmall enough, yet sulllcient to
stimulnte his belief that he wns at
leust upon the right trail. The sudden
departure of this man Hobnrt, and the
fact that no young children were In
tho family, were important items to
consider. Coolldge. then, hnd not
visited this cottage to aid n widow
and orphans. There had been some
other object in his cull. The girl must
have known und understood the real
purpose; thnt was why they both ac
quiesced so readily to his remaining
outside In tho cnr. It wns purt of
their mutual plan to thus leave him
In Ignorance. Yet they had made n
mistake in taking him along nt all.
This error alone gave him now nn op
portunity to unravel the riddle, nut
did It? Whut did he know? Merely
thnt Coolldge hud not gone to this
house on nn errand of chnrlty; that
tho occupant cnlled himself, tem
porarily, perhaps, Jim Ilobart; that
his fumlly consisted of two women,
undescrlbed except ns to age; nnd'
thnt all three had mysteriously dis
appeared together. lie might tnke It
for granted thnt this dlsnppcurnnco
wns caused by tho death of Coolldge.
but they had left no trail, no Inkling
as to where they had gone. He might
Buspcct this sudden vanishing had di
rect connection with the crime he wns
endeavoring to solve, but he pos
sessed absolutely no proof, nnd, ap
parently, nny further movement on
his part was completely blocked.
More puzzled than ever, although
now fully convinced thnt murder hnd
been committed, West could do nothing
but wait the reappearance of Sexton.
The latter arrived promptly on time,
and West told his story. His listener
scorned to sense the situation clenrly.
"It wasn't no mistake, your goln'
out there, ulr," he said confidently.
"WJiat wo know now gives us some
thing to work on anyhow, an' It's Just
whnt I thourht thut trip Sunday led
up to this klllln', an' (something hap
pened while they wns in there to stir
Miss Natalie all up. Now wo got to
find this fellow what did you say his
name wus. sir?"
"Ilobart Jim Ilobart; that Is, he
was known by that name there."
"And did you say he has simply
dropped out o' sight?"
"That's truo; never left n cluo be
"Well, sir, Tm not quite so sure
nbout thnt. You listen to me, sir.
This nfternoon I walked out to Fair
lawn from tho car line, an' como In
across tho fields to the house. I didn't
have no good excuse for goln' back
there, sir, an' was sorter afraid to
meet up wj(h Miss Natalie. She might
hnvo thoug'ht I wus Just spyln' 'round.
Dut I didn't have no need for being
afraid, for It seems she'd driven Into
town about nbon, an' hadn't got back.
There wasu't nobody but tho servant
around tho place, sir. Do you roinem-,
bcr Lizzie, the second muld sorter,
full face, an' light hair?"
Weat nodded, wondering what all
this might he lending to.
"Well, she nn' I always hit It off
together, on' I talked with her quite a
bit. She tolil me, sir, that Miss Natalie
had a telephone call this morning that
took her Into the city. Lizzie she
went to tho 'phono when It rang, on'
it was a man's voice. He wouldn't
leave no message, tut lnnlstcd on
speaking to Miss Natalie. I.lzlzo had
to call her down from upstairs."
"Did the girl overhear tho conversa
tion?" "Not so as to make much out of It,
sir. Sho was sorter Interested, the
man's voice bolns strange, and hung
around In tho hull listening, but about
all she could mako out was what Miss
Natallo said. It seemed like ho win
glvln her some kind of a v 'ch
sho didn't exactly und , '
so sho repented It after i
three times to bo sure"
"What was the address?"
"2.18 Ray street, sir, nn' th. j!
nn hour later, Miss Natnllo r'
her car, nn' drovo Into town."
"Yes, sir; it was thu electric she
West remnlned silent, tapping with
his knife on the tnble. This might
prove Importnnt, nnd ho could not af
ford to Ignore the Information. While
to his mind It was hardly likely Uo
bart had called tho girl, yet tho pos
"I never henrd of a Ttay street," he
said at length, "but of course, thcro
may ho one. Oh, Charlie," ho stopped
a waiter pnsslng. "Urlng me up a city
directory, will you?""
The man returned with tho book,
placing It on u chair next West, who
Immediately began to Inspect the vol
ume. "Hay Btrect," he said doubtfully,
fingering the pnges. "Thcro Is no such
street here, Sexton. Are you suro you
got thnt right?"
'That's what she sala, olr; I mado
her say It over twice."
"Itny Street; wonder If It could be
spelled with n W? Ity Jove, It Is
Wrayl Here wo have It, only five
blocks long,, extending from Conway
to Clrogan. Itather tough section I
should Judge. It wouldn't do nny
harm to tuke a look around there. Per
haps that Is whero Hobart went; ho
might hnvo been the one calling Na
talie. Itather n wild guess, but It will
give us something to do. Aro you
"Quite so, sir."
West hardly took the adventure seri
ously, being more Influenced by curi
osity thnn nny other motive, but Sex
ton wns deeply in earnest, In full faith
they were upon tho right trail. Doubt
ful as he wus, West had neglected no
precautions. Tho map assured him
thnt they were Invading n disorderly
section of the city, where to bo well
dressed would only Invito suspicion,
nnd might lead to trouble. To avoid
this possibility, ho hnd donned his
most shabby suit, and wore a cap
largely concealing his face. In one
pocket of his Jacket within easy reach
lay hidden his" service revolver loaded,
nnd ho hnd Induced Sexton to accept
n smaller weapon In case of emergency.
The street wns not Inviting, tho
snloon on tho corner being flnnkedby
several small factories. The brick
sidewalk was In bad condition, and lit-
"Well, What Is It You Fellers Want?"
tcred with Junk of all kinds, white the
roadway iwas entirely uncared for,
and deeply rutted from heavy traffic.
Half way down the block wns n tan
nery, closed now for tho night, but
with Its odor yet permeating tho en
tire atmosphere. Altogether, the
scene was desolate nnd dlsngrecablc
enough, hut tho street was deserted
of pedestrians, tho factory doors
tightly closed for the night.
The two men pressed their way
through along a narrow pussnge,
finding less obstruction ns they ad
vanced, the second block being com
posed entirely of houses, largely of
tho tenement type, and apparently
principally populated by children.
Wrny street wps lined with homes,
usunlly humble enough outwardly, yet
the thoroughfure was clean, und the
Small yards had generally an ap
pearance of neatness; 238 was n
three-story brick, on the corner,
the second story evidently utilized for
living purposes, and tho ground floor
occupied ns o saloon. The upper story
exhibited no signs of occupancy, the
windows unwashed, and two of them
boarded up. The two lingered In un
certainty opposite the house. Standing
there Idly, however, did not nppeal

small table moodily contemplating a
half emptied stein of beer. There were
three other tubles In the room, and the
'Ualn, with a swift glance about,
j drew out a chair and snt down, bl
J 'ictlon belug imitated by Scilen. The
bartender came forward nround tho
end of the bnr, whllo the man nearest
shifted his position slightly so ns to
look them over, conversation Instnntly
ceasing. Something Indcflnnblo In the
fellow's attitude, and steady stnro,
gave West n feeling of hostility, which
was not dispelled by the gruff greeting
of tho tmrtendcr.
"Well, what Is ltyou fellers want?"
"A stein apiece, nnd n sandwich
you serve them, don't you?"
"Mure; ham or beef?"
There was no cordlnltty, no welcome

plnlnly the proprietor of the saloon
felt no enthusiasm over his unknown
customers. He came back with tho
beer and sandwiches, pnuslng this
time to wlpo off the table, as nn ex
cuse for speech.
"You guys live 'round here?" bo
asked gruffly, "Don't remember ever
seeln yer In here before."
"No," returned West Indifferently,
looking directly Into tho hard face.
"I'm a smoke Inspector, an' wo Just

"Oh, nothln'; only we don't get
much trade outside tho neighborhood."
He walked back toward tho bnr,
pausing nn InHnnt to whisper n word
to the tnller man who still stood thero
staring moodily nt tho table. What
he said apparently determined action,
for the fellow nddresied crossed tho
room to where West nnd Sexton snt,
deliberately pulled up a vacant chair
and Joined them.
"Hrlng mo another, Mike." ho or
dered. "That Is, If these gents don't
object to my Joining 'cm awhile."
West smiled plcusuntly, glad tho
man hnd taken the Initiative, thuo
naturally opening up a wny for ask
Ing certain questions. Whatever his
own Immediate object might be In
thus scraping an acquaintance mado
no difference, It would doubtless de
velop In time, but meanwhile hero wns
the opportunity sought to discuss tho
affairs of tho neighborhood. Yet tho
Biibject must be nppronched with due
caution. Tho very Indifference of the
bartender, coupled with the evident
desire of this hanger-on to form nn
acquaintance, served to reveal tho
real nnturo of tho place. Plainly
enough strangers were viewed with
suspicion, nnd tnis was no ordinary
saloon, catering to whatever trndo
drifted within Its doors. Moro than
