murder Is between the lovers. She plans
to clear her hudband's memory and asks
the judge's 4id. Deborah Scoville reads
the newspaper clippings telling the story
of the murder of Algernon Etheridge by
John Scoville in Dark Hollow, twelve
years before. The judge and Mrs. Sco

shows him how, on the day of the nur

tling a stick and wearing a long peaked
cap. The judge engages her and her
daughter Reuther to live with him in his
mysterious home. Deborah and her law
yer, Black, go to the police station and
see the stick used to murder Etheridge.
She discovers a broken knife-blade point
embedded in it. Deborah and Reuther go
to live with the judge. Deborah sees a
ortrait of Oliver, the judge's son. with a
black band painted across the eybs. That
night site finds, in Oliver's' room, a cap
with a peak like the shadowed one, and
a knife with a broken blade-point. Anon
ymous letters and a talk with Miss
Weeks increase her suspiclons and fears.
She finds that -Oliver was in the ravine
on the murder night. Black warns tier
and shows her other anonymous letters
hinting at Oliver's guilt. In the court

note. The notv Is picked up and rondl

home. Deborah tells him why suspicion
has been aroused against Oliver.
Once within the room, he became his
courteous self once more. "Be Eeat

the half gloom. As she took it. the
room sprang into sudden light. He

"Half light is better," he muttered
in vague apology.

blinding glimpse of the room whose
details were so varied that many of
them 6till remained unknown to her

"No; nothing. I have every con

"Would you trust' him enough to be

if you asked him point-blank whether
his hands were clean of crime?"
"Yea." The wvord came in a wvhls

She had felt the conviction dart like
an arrow through her mind that Oli

This statue stood in a forbidden
place. It was one of the art treasures
of the great house on the bluff com

seen this maWble once, when dining
there with father, and was so im
pressed by its beauty that it haunted
me night and day. The boy of fifteen
would attempt the impossible. I pro

. The answer I failed to catch. I was
simply paralyzed by terror. As the
door of the room opened to admit
them, I succeeded in shutting that of
the closet into which I had flung my
self-or almost- so. I did not dare to
latch it, for they were already in the
room and might hear me.

What's a flash more or less now!"
I heard no answer, only the slap of
the cards as they were flung onto the
table; then the clatter of a key as it
turned in some distant lock.
The bottles were brought forward
and they sat down one on each side
of the dusty mahogany table. The
man facing .me was Spencer, the other
sat with his back my way.
"We'll play till the hands point to
three," announced Spencer, taking out
his watch and laying It down where
both could see it. "Do you agree to
that?-unless I win and your funds
go a-begging before that hour."
"I agree." The tone was harsh; It
was almost smothered. The'tuan was
staring at the watch; there was a
strange set look to his figure; a paus.

stopped to characterize it; it was fol

rich man. "If you do"-here the storm
lulled and his voice sank to an en

a song; and then we'll be neighbors
and can play-play-" . . .
The bills had all gone one way.

all under cover of the table-top and a
stack of half-empty bottles.
"I can buy the (Ilaymore tavern,

into the air as the speaker leaped to
