That was enough; I needed no sec

waiting and we jumped into it.

"That w:is a close shave." said God

I s.u down beside him and mopped
away the perspiration. I had need of
all my breath for a moment, but at last
I managed to blurt out a iiestion.
"What's it all about V"

"So!" I nodded. "Yes. 1 read of the

"But there isn't a shred of evidence

Godfrey was allowing his prejudices

"Not a shred, nppine.i'tly." he a?seut

"We're not going to use it to a jury

known him for a long time, and I know
thnt it's utterly impossible thnt he
should have committed such a crime.
He's not a very original fellow, not at

would think really worth doing; but
he's kind and honest and gentle and

he needs money, and the necklace
would place him out of need for a long
time to come. We know that he was
within reach of the spot where the
murder was committed, if he could get
away from Delroy for an hour or so.

the physical possibility of guilt. I may
add that I think we shall tind he had

"Those points can only be cleared up
by a personal Investigation of the prem

mere." "Godfrey," I said, "there seems to me
to be one great objection to your theory
that Tremaine killed Thompson. If
Miss Croydon saw him do it, would
she consent to associate with hiui?
Wouldn't her very knowledge of his
crime give her a greater bold on him
than he has on her sister?"
He paused to turn this over.
"Yes." he admitted at last; "it would;
but a woman might not think of that."
"A desperate woman would think of
everything." I said, "and if your theory
is right, both she and her sister must

He nodded without answering, and
sat staring before him, bis brow:
knitted in perplexity.
There was one conclusive objection I
might have urged, had I known of it--
but I was not .vet possessed of the
storv of the house party. If Tremaini
was the husband of Mrs. Dolroy. how

ing himself from the profound reverie
Into which m.v uuestion had thrown
him. We'll lo k in upon the prisoner
first and ch;er him up a bit."
The jail was only a short 'stance
from the station, ami n live minutes'

"We're here in behalf of Mr. Drys

"This is Mr. Lester of Graham iV Royce

"I'll take iu your cards," he said.
:fler looking us over. "If Mr. Drys
lale wants lo see you. it's all right, but
you'll be the first ones."
He disappeared into an inner room;
we heard the rattling of keys and the
clanging of an iron t":oor. He was back
again in a moment.
"Step this waj gentlemen." he said.
Drysdale was sitting on the bunk in
bis little cell. He came forward with
hand outstretched as soon as he saw
"This in mighty kind of you, Jim,"
"I'll have to lock you in, gentlemen,
broke in the jailer. "How soon must I
come for j-ou?"
"Say twenty minutes," answered
Godfrej-, looking at his watch. Then
he turned back to us as the jailer's
steps died away down the corridor.
"Jack," he said, "this is Mr. Lester of
Graham & Ro.vce. who've been re
tained to look after your case."
"Mj" case? Who retained them?"
"1 did. I scarcely supposed you
were going to let yourself be convicted
without lifting a finger."
Drysdale smiled bitterly.
"They won't convict me. Just the
same. I'm glad to see .vou. Mr. Lester."
r.nd he held out his hand. "I shall,
of course, need some legal advice."
"I'm glad you admit that much',"
retorted Godfrej-, with sarcasm. "I
understand thnt you haven't conde
scended as j-ct to prove an alibi?"
"No." answered the prisoner iuietly.
"The fact is. I can't prove an alibi."
"You can't?'' and Godfrej'"s face
paled a little.

more quietly, "is one question which

Godfrey had listened with a face bard
as steel. He turned away without an
swering, and as we went dowu the
street together I saw that this new de
velopment puzzled and worried him
sorely. That Miss Croydon should tbink
Drysdale guilty, even for an instant,
We made our way to the nearest ho
tel and engaged a trap and while it
was getting ready ordered a light
lunch. Gou'ivy ate iu thoughtful si
lence; : for nie. I confess that I saw
little ground for that conviction ho had
expressed so confidently, that we could
prove our clients innocence. I was
forced to admit that to look at Drvs
dale no one would believe him capable
of such a crime. But. then, for that
matter, to look at Tremaine, who would
belie e Ipui capable of it? Put the two
men before a jur.v and Tremaine would
come off victor every time. It becomes
instinctive iu time for a lnwjer to try
to look at his cases will) an average
jury's eyes he must see them as tlinse
twelve men in the box will see them
and applying that method now it' was
verv evident to me that the chance of
clearing our client was very slim in
deed. The trap came around to the door,
and in a moment we were off along the
sand.v load. At last we swung down
before the doir at Ed gem ere. A man
ran out to hold our h rsc. We asked
for Mr. Di Ito.v. and a servant who had
been stationed in the vestibule took In

and conducted us to tiie librnr.v. Del-roj-

"Yes. I hone yon will. Sit down,
won't you? Ridiculous, that's the word
for it. nud j'et," he added, passing his
hand befora his e.ves in a dazed way,
"there are so many points of evidence

been terribly upset."
No doubt." nodded Godfrey, his

to do is to give us an account of ad

you will do that."

"Yes, at least on Drysdale's part.

tragedy. I was struck at once by the
change in Godfrey's demeanor. He no
longer seemed either perplexed or wor

way out of the labyrinth.
To the boathouse he gave a particu

How To Tell
You do not need
to be a chemist to
know pure, clean
and you are sure of
pure, clean, whole
some beer. It is the
beer that never,
throughout the lonj;
process of brewing,
comes in contact
with anything but
pure, filtered air and
pipes, tubes and
sealed storage tanks.
It is the richest beer
:ti food value, and
always the best to
drink, jcrfect in age,
purity and strength.
