He left the room—a busy, pur

Sir Henry stood motionless for

through the French windows onto

v • a gardening basket and

"we shrubs with a pair of scis
sors.
She waved to him brightly.
What did the inspector want?
] hope he is not going to worry
u.e servants again. You know
Henry, they don’t like it. They
can't see it as amusing or as a
novelty like we do.”
•Do we see it like that?”
His tone attracted her attention.
See smiled up at him sweetly.
How fired you look, Henry.
Must you let ail this worry you so
much?”
Murder is worrying, Lucy.”
Lady Angkatell considered a
moment, absently clipping ofl
some branches, then her face
clouded over.
■ Oh, dear—that is the worst ol
scissors; they are so fascinating
one can’t stop and one always
dips off more than one means.
What was it you were saying
. mething about murder being
worrying? But, really, Henry, 1
have never seen why. 1 can if
one has to die, it may be cancer

dreadful bright canitoriums, or a

but the whole thing comes to the

all the worry over. And the rela

Sir Henry sat down on the stone
coping. He said:
“This is all going lo be more]
upsetting than we thought, Lucy.
“Well, darling, we shall 'nave tc
bear it. And when it’s all over we
might go away somewhere. Let’s

"Plenty of time to make plans

"Yes, but I like to see things in

Yes.” Lucy smiled happily, “she
will certainly have got over it by
then.”
“Who?” Sir Angkatell was stal

Lady Angkatell said calmly:
Henrietta. ... I think if they

"I wish you wouldn’t, my dear,

“But, darling,” Lady Angkatell

“Poor devil!”
“Why? Oh, you mean because

to die sometime. I never worry
over people dying . . .”
He looked at her curious.y.
“1 always thought you liked
Clristow, Lucy.”
“I found him amusing. And he
bad charm. But 1 never thins one
ought to attach too much impor
tance to anybody.’
And gently, wrth a smiling face.
Lady Angkatell clipped remorse
lessly at a vine.
* * *
Hercule Poirot looked out ot his
windoy and saw Henrietta Saver
nake walking up the path to the
Pont door. She was wearing the
Came green tweeds that she had
worn on the day of the tragecsy.
There was a spaniel with her.
He hastened to the front door
ai d opened it. She stood smiling
at him.
“May I come in and see your
house? I like looking at people s
houses. I'm just taking the dog
for a walk.’’
“But most certainly. How Eng
lish it is to take the dog for a
walk!”
“I know, said Henrietta. “I
tnought of that. Ik you know that
nice poem: ‘The days passed
slowly one by ore. I fed the
ducks, reproved my wife, played
Handel’s Largo cn the fife, And
tnok the dog a run’.”
Again she smiled — a brilliant,
unsubstantial smile.
Poirot ushered her into his sit
ting room. She looked around its
neat and prim arrangement and
nodded her head.
“Nice,” she said, “two of every
thing. How you would haie my
studio.”
“Why should I hate it? ’
“Oh, a lot of clay sticking t,o
things—and here and there just
or.e thing that I happen to like
and which would be ruined if
there were two of them.”
“But I can understand that.
Mademoiselle. You are an artist ”
“Aren't you an artist too, M.
Poirot?”
Poirot put his head on one side.
“It is a question, that. But. on
the whole, I would say no. I have
knowm crimes that were artistic—
they were, you understand, su
preme exercises of imagination—
but the solving of them—no, it is
not the creative power that is
needed. What is required is a pas
sion for the trull.”
“A passion for the truth,” said
Henrietta meditatively. “Yes, I
can see how dangerous that might
make you. Would th» truth satisfy
you?”
He looked at her curiously.
“What do you mean, Miss Sav
ernake?”
“I can understand that you
would want to know. But would
knowledge be enough? Would you.
have to go a step farther a; d
translate knowledge into action''”
He was interested in her ap
proach.
“You are suggesting thit if 1
knew tVie truth about Dr. Chris
tow’ death—I might be satisfied
to keep that knowledge to myself
Do you know the truth about nis
death?”
Henrietta shrugged her shoul
ders.
“The obvious answer seems to
be Gerda. How' cynical it is that
a wife or a husband is always the
first suspect.”
“But you do rot agree?”
“I always like to keep an open
mind.”
Poirot said quietly:
“Why did you come here, Miss
Savernake?”
“I must adnrt that I haven t
your passion for truth, M. Poirot.
cajiing the dog for a walk was
such a nice iangiish countryside
excuse. But, of course, the Ang,
katells haven’t got a. dog—as you
may have noticed the other day.”
“The fact had r.ot escaped me.”
“So I borrowed the gardener's
spaniel. I am not, you must un
derstand, M. Poirot, very truth
ful.”
Again that brilliant, brittle
smile flashed out. He wondered
why he should suddenly find it
unendurably moving. He said
quietly:
“No, but yfiu have integrity.”
“Why on earth do you say
that?”
She was startled—almost, he
thought, dismayed.
“Because I believe it to be
true.”
“Integrity,” Henrietta repeated
thoughtfully. "I wonder what that
word really means?”
She .sat very slid staring down
cl the carpet, then she raised her
head and looked ar him steadily.
“Don’t you want to know why I
did come?”
You cmd a difficulty, perhaps
in putting it into words.”
“Yes, I think I do. . . . The in
quest, IVt Poirot, is tomorrow.
One has to make up one’s mind
just how much—”
She broke off. Getting up, she
wandered across to the mantel
piece, displaced or.c or two of the
ornaments and moved a vase ol
Micchaelmas daisies from its posi
tion in the middle of a table, to
the extreme corner of the mantel
piece. She stepped back, eyeing
the arrangement with her head
cn one side.
“How do you like that, M. Poi
rot?”
“Not at all. Mademoiselle.’
“I thought you wouldn’t.’ She
laughed, moved everything quick
ly and deftly back to their origi
nal positions. "Well, if one wants
to say a thing one has to say it!
You are, somehow, the sort of
person one can talk to. Here goes
Is it necessary, do you think, that
the police Should know that John
Christow and I were deeply in
lcve?”
Her voice was quite dry and
unemotional_ She was looking, not
at him, but at the wall over his
head. With one forefinger she was
hallowing the curve of the jar that
held the purple flowers. He had
an idea that in the touch of that
fmger was her emotional outlet.

McKENNEY ON BRIDGE
BY WILLIAM E. McKENNEY
America’s Card Authority
Written for NEA Service
My friend Sam Holt of Asheville,
N. C., has reminded me that the
Southern Appalachian Contract
Bridge Championships will be held
at the George Vanderbilt Hotel in
Asheville Aug. 22t 23, and 24. This
tournament is actively sponsored
by the Asheville Junior Chamber of
Commerce.
It always provides good compe
tition, as it attracts not only the
finest players' of the south, but
also many of the Life Masters o*
New York and Philadelphia.
During the buffet given after last
year’s tournament, today’s hand
came in for a good deal of discus
sion. At most of the tables Noith
and South Arrived at a six spade
contract, which was defeated with
a heart opening.
At one table, after East doubled
six ff'ades, South went to six no
trump even though he was void
in diamonds; and that contract

could not be defeated. Very often
a player makes the mistake ol
doubling a contract that he feels
sure he can defeat, and by his
double he drives the opponents in
to a better spot.
East should have known that
West did not have many hearts.
Not vulnerable, West had offered
no support when East bid two
hearts, and then four hearts. From
the bidding, the missing king of
hearts undoubtedly was in the
South hand.
Therefore, the double of six
spades was very unwise, and the
double of six no trump was an
indication of anger on the part of
East, rather than ability to beat
the contract.
Experts say, don’t double a slam
contract unless you are certain that
you can defeat any other contract
the opponents may run to.

SCIENTIST CHURCHES
STUDY ‘TRUTH’ FOR
LESSON ON SUNDAY
“TRUTH” was the subject of the
Lesson-Sermon in all Christian Sci
ence Church and Societies on Sun
day, July 27.
Golden Text from Isaiah 25: 1.
‘'O Lord, thou art my God; I will
exalt thee, I will praise thy name;
. . . thy counsels of old are faith
fulness and truth.”
Among the citations comprising
the Lesson-Sermon were the follov*
ing from the Bible: “Give ear, O
ye heavens, and I will speak; . . .
Because I will publish the name of
the Lord: . . . He is the Rock, his
work is perfect; for all his ways
are judgment: a God of truth and
without iniquity, just and right is
he” (Deuteronomy 32:1,3,4). And
from “Science and Health with
Key to the Scriptures” by Mary
Baker Eddy: “It is essential to
understand, instead of believe,
what relates most nearly to the
happiness of being. To seek Truth
through belief in a human doctrine
is not to understand the infinite.
The understanding of Truth gives
full faith in Truth, and spiritual un
derstanding is better than all burnt
offerings.” (Page 285).

THE STORY OF CHOCOLATE
Cocoa, or chocolate, was given
to the Old World by the New. It
is difficult for most of us to ima
gine a world in wh.ch there was
no chocolate candy, chocolate
pies, puddings, cakes and drinks.
Yet such was the state of Europe
until the year 1528.
In that year Cortez, the con
queror of Mexico, introduced into
Spain a delicious beverage, made
from crushed cacahoatl beans,
which he had enjoyed at the court
of Montezuma, the Aztec Emper
or. This drink was called choco
latl by the Aztecs. The name of
the bean, cacahoatl, was shorten
possible the milk chocolate bars
that v e know today.
Nowadays the world's supply of
cocoa comes from tropical coun
tries all around the world, but
most of it is grown in the Gold
Coast and Nigeria in Africa, and
in Brazil, Sout.n America. The
trees are wide-branching ever
greens and grow as high as 20
or 25 feet. They begin to bear
fruit when they are about 3 or 7
years old.
The fruit consists of ribbed
pods, very much like elongated
cantaloupes, that often reach a
length of one foot. When ripe,
these pods contain from 20 to 40
beans, embedded in a moist white
pulp. The beans are flat and pur
plish brown, and look somewhat

cantaloupe, is about as long as the pencil at top of picture. From the
beans a thick liquid is made which Is the basis of all chocolate pro

ed to cacao by the Spanish, and
this was later corrupted to cocoa.
Chocolate soon became a favor
ite drink in Europe. Not until 1828
was it discovered that candy
could be made from it. In that
year a Dutch manufacturer decid
ed that the chocolate drink would
be improved if some of the na
tural fat, or “cocoa butter,” were
taken out. After pressing the but
ter out of the roasted beans, he
experimented further, and found
that, by mixing a limited amount
of the butter and some sugar with
the dry cocoa, and cooking the
mixture, he could get a solid sub
stance that was good to eat. This
was the beginning of chocolate
candy.
Shortly after the American Civil
War, Daniel Peter of Switzerland
discovered how to blend chocolate
and milk and sugar, and made
like shelled almonds, only a little
larger. These beans were used as
money by the Aztecs, who car
ried them in little bags, each
valued according to the number
of beans it contained.
When tne pods are pipe, they
are cut from the trees. The pulp
and beans a^e scooped out and
put in tanks or spread on banana
leaves or coconut matting to fer
ment until the pulp has disap
peared and cerlain changes have
taken place in the beans. They
are tnen dried in the hot sun,
packed into bags and shipped to
the markets of the world.
The largest manufacturing
plants are in the United States.
In these plants, the beans are
roasted in great revolving ovens.
When they have been roasted just
long enough they are taken out
and rapidly cooled.

Congress May Return With
More Union-Curbing Ideas
--WASHINGTON, July 27 — (£>) —
Congress may come back next win
ter with more ideas for curbs on
unions after a series of hearings
around the country this summer.
With an eye to any conditions
that may feel require correcting,
various House labor subcommittees
will trek from coast to coast.
They plan to peer into union ac
tivities in such fields as music, the
movies, radio, television, other en
tertainment, food handling and con
struction.
More studies and hearirfts are
on the docket of a Senate-House
committee set up to ke^o watch on
labor problems and the operation
of the new Taft-Hartley act.
Chairman Hartley (R-NJ) of the
House labor committee told a re
porter:
“Some legislation may result
from all these hearings and studies.
But I have my doubts of passage
of any stiff labor bill in a presi
dential election year.”
But Hartley has promised that if
anything proves to be wrong with
the Taft-Hartley act, he will be the
first to propose changes.
One proposed change already is
awaiting consideration in Jan
uary. Just before adjourn
adjournment yesterday, Rep. Keat
ing (R-NY) of the House judiciary
committee introduced a bill pro
posing a specific declaration by
