SYNOPSIS
Alan /.nr k wood a bachelor. vho
oceppirs n honxr in I Washington
with Leonard Whitmore, for sir j
yearn his law partner, is av~ak
cned one sntucy morning by
Jtarry, the valet, irho it much ex
cited. Following Barry down- . |
stairs to the library, Lockwood
rHacorrrt Whitmore dead in a
hupe. armchair before the fire a
danger tfirking in bin hack. The
window *s open, but there are no
fnotp/ints in the snow beneath it.
dome nerfwa are scattered about
the floor uenr the wiiidotr. Dr.
Wood a and the coroner are sn m
moped at oner, and the physician
deeiarea that Whitmore hat been
dead for air hourt, —since one
o'clock that morning, killed by
one stroke of the dagger, and that
death could not have been self
imitated because the wound waa
in the dead man’a back. The cor
oner agrees with the physician's
VOdict and the library is left un
disturbed to await police inspec
tion l.oekwond 'phones the home
of Apnea Marion, his murdered
partner's fiancee, with whom hr
too it in love and tells her, father
Of Whitmore's death. Detective
Richmond, from headquarters, ar
rives and hit rflirttionlng elicits
the fact that Barry, the valet, it
an cr-convict, with a *prison rec
ord of trn years for forging. The
detective's queries make it ap
parept that hr suspects Barry of
the crime. Lockwood questions
Barry further and learns that
Jack Marion, Agnes' brother, vis
ited Whitmore at midnight, short
ly before the crime was commit
ted. He tells Barry not to trll
anything of this, as he fears Jack
will fall under suspicion. The in
pv,cst is held, but the cireum dan
tint- evidence against Barry not
being sufficient to cause an ar- ;
vest, the usual verdict of "death
by a dagger in the hands of a per- {
;,o or permits unknown," is
brought in. After the inquest
Lockwood is startled, by the ap
pearance, of Jack Marion accom
panied by a braufiful lady. Miss
Varson. ft he desires to visit the
.library where the murder occur
red. explaining that she is writing
a book and wishes to use the
Whitmore murder as part of hit
plot. Lockwood grants the desired
permission. Miss Carson's inves
tigations lead to the arrest of Jack
Marion as the murderer of Whit
more. Lockwood calls on Agnes
and Is astonished at the change in
her. Rhe tells him that she. loves
Whitmore move now that he is !
dea.d than before.
CHAPTER VII
Jack Marion
I
Por perhaps a week I saw little or J
nothin* of either Miss Carson or the!
detectives, although I was kept con* i
riintly Informed of the progress they j
were making in the solution of the I
mystery. Most of my time was spent!
at my downtown office, working fev-j
erlshly. and preparing cases that !
were to come up very shortly. Nor ,
did I see Agnes again. A day or two
• after her brother was released on'
bftH, 1 received an invitation from I
Mrs. Marion to dinner, but l had an
. important engagement with a busi
ness associate, or said I had, and did .
not accept. No one will ever know |
the physical and mental, 1 suf-!
fared during that week—no one need
ever know. The oulv person with
whom I had an interview during that
tit** was Jack Marlon. Now that ho j
was nominally free he set about with j
tletermlnatlou to exonerate himself
He came to my office one afternoon,
hogging me to take his case, and when
1 refused ou the ground that I al
ready had more work than 1 could l
possibly handle, he produced a note
f dm his sister in which she added
her plea to his. I accepted.

“Yes. but —"
“Rut we will leave the finding o

innocence."
"I realize that." I remarked dryly
filing my pipe from a Jar of tohaccr
in the side table.
Suddenly he fell silent, toying ab
ently with an unlighted cigarette
Instead of interrupting his reverie,'
*-noked my pipe, wondering if nor
that 1 was to be his attorney hi

“Of course neither Mother nor Dai

her sweetheart.”
"What!” I ejaculated In amaze

"Agnes thinks I am guilty," he re
peated sorrowfully.
It did not seem possible to me aft

tevlewed my laqt conversation witl

might simply imagine that she didn’
believe in him. - • . .
"What makes you think so? Surel;
you must be mistaken?"
Jack gave a little laugh. *
"So, unfortunately. 1 am not mis

"Agnes?, Oh. she'll come around

It is because of its ail-feature chassis that
you get in the Columbia Light Six a smooth
ness of riding comfort seldom found in low
priced cars—a flexibility and abundance of
power that gives from 2 to 65 miles in speed—
a lightness of well-balanced strength that gives
more than 22 miles on a gallon of gasoline and
better than 12000 miles on a set of its cord tires
. —a durability of mechanism that far outlives
cars in its price class and that holds deprecia
tion to a minimum.
