Doyie had reserved this tehing shot
for a crjtj,.a moment.
"I never had a scar on my le.t

"I.efs see" the detective snapped
"Bnt that j.roves nothing." Valen

peared unwilling to permit Doyle to
make an examination of bis wrist.
"Let me sec. I tf 11 you. It's cot to

He p:ished l-rt'K the en ST. but the
surface of the right wrist was as
smooth and as unbroken as the other. '
"Anything else I an do for you?"1
jisfced the jissistant cashier calmly as
Doyle iet go his hand.
"Uy . that's funny" murmured
Doyle. He looked across the room to
the picture on the wall, fie drew a '
magnifying gi;ss from his coat pocket j
and stepped before the handsomely
framed photograph ot:e more.

"Oh, cut that! Don't worry about
