Announcement that a three
day Automobile Show will be
held here during the latter part of
next month under the auspices
of the Annapolis Automobile
Dealers’ Association is not only
a matter of deep interest to those
engaged in the industry and their
patrons, but is evidence of a pro
gressive ciyic spirit that does the
whole community proud.
While the local show will be
the first of its kind that has ever
been held in Annapolis, no stone
will be left unturned in making
this initial effort a notable suc
cess. In fact, it is the intention
of the Show's promoters to make
of it an tftnual feature, and the
public cub well show its appre
ciation by giving it generous pa
tronage. With the St. John?®Col
lege gymnasium especially decor
ated for the occasion, excellent
types of the latest models of cars
of well-known manufacturers on
display, attractive booths show
ing automotive accessories of al
most every conceivable kind and
description, and plenty of good
music and other forms of enjoy
able entertainment provided for.
it can readily be seen that the
Show visitors will have plenty to
hold their attention.
Particularly appealing to the
general public is the decision of
the management to charge only a
nominal admission fee for en
trance to the Show. This, it has
been stated, will be a sum that
is easily within 7 the means of all.
As sot forth yesterday by one of
the members of the committee on
arrangements, the show is not
being bold for the purpose of
making money. The main object
is to get the people interested in
and thoroughly acquainted with
the latest developments in the
automobile industry —an indus
try whose diverse ramifications
affects either directly or indirect
ly the everyday life of nearly all
of us. And oik* of the best meth
ods of doing this has been found
to be through the medium of the
Automobile Show. %
In arranging for a show of this
kind here, the Annapolis Auto
mobile Association is helping to
place this city in line with other
cities where automobile shows
have become permanent fixtures
that are eagerly looked forward j
to each year by the public, and
the members of the local organ-1
ization are to be congratulated on
their progressive efforts. May
thp first Annapolis Show meet
with all the suresss that it just-j
ly deserves.

IX active IJerLcrt sat at h-s
'desk in unwelcome idleness. It was i
he hottest day of the summer aud 1
the dullest. Petty crime had forsak- i
,e:i the big city and centered itself at ]
jfaahlonalle resorts, affording Ralston i
! no opportunity for the exercise of his
t peculiar activities
; ’Were Ito leave town for only a
i J week a crime of more than usual im
jjportance would be sure to take
! place,” he told himself lazily. “Jove!
I wish it would. A few more weeks
of this idleness and I won’t be fit to
put on a case.”
At that moment the telephone rang
shrilly. It might be an answer to his
prayer for actions. His Chief s voice
came to him across the wire.
“Have a case for you, Ralston. Old
Miss Alden was murdered last night.
Folks say her shrieks woke the
neighborhood. Don’t know the details
yet, but you'll hear them from Jef
fries. He's over there now. • Get
- busy.”
Ralston reached for his bat, all the
discontent of a minute before forgot
ten. He had a reputation to sustain
since his solution of the baffling Thor
bridge mystery had advanced him to
a star position on the force.
- The drive uptown was short, and
f twenty minutes after the Chief’s mes
. sage Ralston hastened up the steps
of one of the large browustone houses
- that faced a well-known and popular
• square. A policeman stood guard at
. the door, but at sight of the detec
tive he stepped aside respectfully.
r " 'Morning Tucker. Is Mr. Jeffries
- still here?”
, “Yes! sir. He came about a half
hour ago and Is expecting you,” re
plied the officer. Then, with a nod
! in the direction of the stairs, he add- i
r ed: “First floor, second door to your j
right, sir.”*
The indicated door stood half- j
; open, and from the room came thej
. sound of men's voices. Two men, one
of whom was Dr. Scott from Head
-1 quarters, were bending over the body
? of a woman which lay on the uncar
r. peted floor. Despite the fact that the
windows were open there was an un
pleasant acrid odor about the place.
- With that all-comprising glance that
. seems sc natural to a man of his pro-;
fesaion, Ralston took in the room.!
l kough If rge was plain and j
t bare of furniture, 'fhe walls were i
s lined with long shelves upon which
j were placed cqps, saucers, plates and
other piece® of china in all stages of
• decorations, it was evident that Miss
- Alden had been interested iu art and
j that this was the apartment she had
used for a studio. Tho room, with
‘ Us three large, uncurtained windows,
was admirably suited to such a pur- j
po.?e. In front of a window, placed j
m as to catch the various angles of:
? light, was a work table covered with
i paints, brushes and pieces of china.
The dead woman lay but a few feet
from this table. ,
One of the men examining the body
f rose from his knees, thus allowing the
, newcomer a closer view. Ralston
leaned forward, then recoiled in hor
ror. The face was so terribly burn- j
- ed that the features were unrecog
l nizable. The woman, whose age
might have been anywhere from for
• ty-tlve to fifty, lay with her head on
f one side, her hair failing about the
i shoulders. That she had struggled |
t valiantly boforc her death was evi
dent by the marks of disorder in her
i apparel.
t “Burns!” Ralston muttered.
, “Right you are. Herb, 0 answered a
man standing near the table. “Burn-;
1 ed by hydrofluoric acid. Don’t you
> notice the odor? Lord, bow she must
have suffered!"
“How long has she been dead?”
1 "Since about midnight, the doctor!
. says. Her screams awojee the neigh- j
I btfrhood at that hour. However, no,
>r.e was certain 'from which house
they came. —”
“Come into the hall.” Ralston In-1
, ’errupted. “You can tell me the de- j
tails there. The doctors will Eoon j
in'.sh their examination and then we ;
can get to work.”
“Who lived in the house beside*
Miss Alden?” continued the detective !
when the door had closed behind!
“There is Miss Marshall, her com
| panion. but she was not home last
i night. As for the servants, they come
j by the day."
“Is Miss Marshall here yet?”
' Yes. but the news of the death
came as such a shock that she retired
to her room. I decided to question
her later. You can’t get much from
in hysterical woman, you know.”
“You have been here a half-hour.
I Have you discovered anything that
I could have a direct bearing on the
Roy Jeffries hesitated a moment.
“I think I have. Herb, in fact I 1
shouldn't be surprised if this mys
terious death was not merely the re
sult of a nunfortunate accident.”
“Accident?” Ralston queried curl- *
"Every evidence I have found so 11
i far.” went on Jeffries, “seems to prove , i
j that the bottle of acid was accidently! I
knocked from a shelf by—” j <
“ML* Alden herself?*' 1
“No. By a cat.” 1
"What?” ejaculated Ralston incred-! 1
wously. “Tell me about it, Jeff. ’ jl
“This morning when we opened the j
studio door, we found the cat had
teen in the room all night. As I will
show you in a minute, all the clueY
lead to and—” Before he could j
complete his sentence Dr. Scott and *
the coroner appeared ou the thres-;
“1 will seud some men to remove
the body to a different room," the cor
oner said, and then, adding a few
more facts as to the medical nature
of the burns, left, accompanied by
Dr. Scott.
A few minutes later when the body
of Miss Alden had been carried to
liar bedroom, the detectives began
their inspection of the studio.
“Now for the clues that lead to the
cat.” said Ralston to his younger col
league, with a sort of amused toler
ance. “I’m open to conviction.”
“It’s all very well to joke. Herb,”
returned the other; “but just take a
look at that shelf and tell me what
you see;” and he indicated a broad
shelf above the work table.
Ralston upproached this shelf,
which was fastened to the wall where
it was within easy reach of a per
son at the table. It held several bot
tleß, of oil, tubes of paints and
brushes. He tent closer; there was
a heavy layer of dust upon the shelf
that had apparently been there for
some days. Suddenly he started;
clearly imprinted in the dust were
the marks of a cat's paws.
“Well, do you see it?” asked Jef
fries triumphantly.
“What is your theory?" inquired
“That the cat jyniped from the
table to the shelf. It is not very
high. Miss Alden was probably seated
! at the time, paying no attention to the
j animal. Pussy overturned the acid
j bottle, which broke when striking
| Miss Alden. Notice that wherever a
! drop fell it burned large holes.”
“Have you found the pieces of the
“Yes.” Jeffries 'carefully drew from
his pocket a small package, showing
two parts of a wax bottle, the usual
container for powerful acids that eal
through the heaviest glass.
“Humph! Broken square in ..half."
Ralston remarked, as he took the frag
I ments. On one of the pieces was still
j pasted a label warning, and tbe name
, of a large pharmacy in the city. “You
, may be right about the cat, Jeff, but 1
think it would be well to ’phone the
Moreland Pharmacy and as}c when
and to whom they sold a quantity of
hydrofluoric acid. The demand is so
rare that they should have a record
of the order.”
“There is'a telephone downstairs —”
“Ring them up, and then ask Miss
! Marshall to come to the studio for a,
! moment."
When Jeffries had gone in obedi
ence to his request, the detective drew
from his pocket a magnifying glass
-nd began u minute survey of the
dusty shelf. There were four distinct
prints where the cat had evidently
“Strange," he said, to himself, “but
I would like to see that cat. What
will the fellows say when they hear 1
was sent out on a case that ends in a
four-footed animal?” He smiled as
seating himself, he awaited Jeffries
“What news?” he asked when that
young man entered.
“Moreland admits selling this acid
to Miss Alden herself a week ago.
Says they are sure it was Miss Alden,
as she has dealt w’ith them for years.
Have you found anything?”
"Yes, answered Ralston noncommit
lingly. "What about Miss Marshall?”
“She’ll be up in a minute.”
“Jeff, who discovered that Alias Al
den was dead?”
“Her maid, .when she came to the
six-thirty. Going to call her
mistress, and not finding her in her
I room, she came to the studio."
“You mentioned screams being
j heard?” prompted the detective.
“The neighbors say the shrieks
1 were awful, agonizing, but they didn't,
last long. She probably screamed
j when she realized what had happened.
! What a death!”
“Terrible,” admitted Ralston with a
’ shudder; “terrible. However. it
seems strange that anyone should
choose midnight to paint china.”
“From what I hear. Miss Alden was
ill the habit of doing things different
ly from others. She was known as
eccentric, and was generally disliked, j
Even her servants didn’t stand her!
peep lari ties for !oug.”
' iUmm. now that t you speak of it. IJ
remember hearing this. Marshall;
Alden, the State Senator, is her broth
er, I believe?” m
“Half-brother, tb he exact. She was
even wealthier than he. and that is
saying a good deal. They were not
on friendly terms. It is common gos
sip that they haven’t spoken to each
other for years. Some family quar
rel; don’t know what. Hush, here
comes Miss Marshall now.”
Jeffries rose as she entered and
placed a chair for her. Mias Mary Mar
shall was a small, pretty woman with 1
gentle, refined features and soft grey
eyes that were now red with weeping, i
She seemed considerably younger than
Miss Alden. perhaps thirty-four or
five. Ralston cleared his throat as ;
he said politely: •
“Miss Marshal!, as it is accessary a
to clear up this mystery, if mystery it b
is. that surrounds the death of Miss
Alden. 1 am obliged to ask you a few ji
questions in the hope that you may be h
able to throw some light upon tbe
tragedy.” n
“Oh, I’m afraid I shall lie of little
assistance as 1 was not at home last s
night,”—she faltered.
“I understand.” said Ralston en- t
couragingiy, as the companion dabbed x
her eyes with her handkerchief.
■ Was Miss Alden entirely alone then?*
“Yes.” g
“Where were you?” ,
“1 went out for the evening. I did j
not return until this morning .’’
“How long bave you known Miss •
Alien?” |j
' She was my cousin.” Miss Mar-;
| shall replied after a pause, “but I j
I have lived with her for five years.” j,
“Is it true that Miss Alden and herj,
.brother were not on good terms?”
••Really, 1 don’t know,” she replied j
“Come now. Miss Marshall,” the de
tective coaxed. “We must consider
every point if we are to arrive any
“Well, then it is true. At least it
was until a few days ago when the
Senator came to see her. I was not
present, but from where I sat in the
opposite room I could hear their voices
somewhat raised. They both had vio
lent tempers.”
“Could you distinguish what they
were saying?”
“Tell me, Miss Marshall, why did
Miss Alden buy hydrofluoric acid?”
“I did not know she had bought it;
I was not with her ut the time. She
used the acid to remove enamel from
china which had been fired. Painting
was her only fad china painting,
and she did it beautifully.”
“One thing more. Do you know of
any one who could have wished your
cousiuV life? You know her acquain
tance. Have you any suspicion?”
“No,” she affirmed after a moment’s
consideration; but her words lacked
conviction, and her eyes, which had
until now met the detective’s steadily,
At that instant a step was heard
i outside the studio. Ralston fiuug
open the door, in his haste nearly col
liding with a young man who stood in
the hall.
“Who are you?” demanded the de
; tective abruptly.
“Victor Roland,” answered the in
truder with evident surprise. “I’m a
; relative of Miss Marshall.”
“Don’t you know that no one is per
i mitted in this house?”
‘‘No one so informed me. • I said I
was a relative aud the policeman let
me enter. I am sorry if I disobeyed
orders. lam in search of my cousin.”
Miss Marshall came forward.
“Mr. Ralston, this is my cousin.
I Mr. Roland.” She spoke calmly
, enough, but k the watcliful detective
, noted the lo6k of amazement, not un
1 mingled with horror, that for an in
> stant flashed across her face.
( “I have been out of the city until
f today,” explained Roland, “and I was
, extremely shocked to hear of Miss Al
I den’s death. She was not my relative,
but I knew her slightly. Have the
• police found any clue to the-er-mur
, derer?”
; “Murderer? There seems to be nc
suspicion of murder in this case.’
. Ralston’s sharp eyes fastened them
- selves ou the newcomer, a pleasant
i looking young fellow In the early
, twenties.
“I said I hud been out of the city
. If it is not. murder than v/hat is it?
Victor Roland was obviously ill at
ease and his pale blue eyes shiftca
from the older man’s gaze,
i “A bottle of hydrofluoric acid—
i “Miss Marshall’s pale face grew if
, possible a shade paler—“knocked
s from the shelf by—” Ralston paused
and glanced at the companion. She
was leaning aginst the door, her fin
gers twisting and untwisting her
l handkerchief, her eyes fixed with in
. tense anxiety upon the speaker.
, “Knocked from the shelf,” continued
. the detective, “by the cat, appar
ently.” \
“Oh, Cleopatra?” Miss Marshall’s
’ tone expressed relief.
“Yes. Miss Alden’s pet cat.”
“Oh strange!” murmured the
young man.” Her cat. Terrible ac
' eident! Thank you, Mr. Ralston. I
will not detain you longer. I .only
wished to offer my sympathy to
“If there is nothing else you wish to
ask,” put in Miss Marshal], address
ing the detective, “I will accompany
Mr. Roland.” ~And with a nod she and
her cousin descended the stairs.
“As a matter of routine I will take
another look at the studio,” Ralston
said at length, as a door on the floor
below closed noisily. “Perhaps the
cat left further evidence.”
He was half-way across the long
room while speaking, his keen eyes
examining the broad shelves littered
with china. At the work table he
j paused. It was upon this table the
j cat had stood* before the unfortunate
jleap which, according to Jeffries, un
set the bottle of hydrofluoric acid.
The younger detective, idly watching
from the end of the studio, pw Ral
ston suddenly bend forward and pick
up a black, shiny-topped paint-box.
“Find anything. Herb?” he called,
but his friend only shook his head.
“Nothing much.” he said, and then
added: *T say, Jeff, see if you can
find me some wrapping paper. I want
to take this paint-box with me.”
When Jeffries returned he found
Ralston engaged in unscrewing the
dusty shelf.
“Heavens! man, what are you do
ing?” he demanded.
“Taking down this shelf to preserve
the prints,” was the reply. “It may
,be needed as evidence. There. Now
'we’ll put it In this closet for A time,”
and he opened the door of a large cap
That done, Ralston carefully wrap- i
[>ed the paint-box. Then he looked at *
his watch.
“Almost noon” he exclaimed. “I
must hurry back to Headquarters. '
Have some business to attend to. I’ll !
sec you again this afternoon.”
But Herbert Ralston did not return
immediately to his office. Instead, af- •
ter a hasty lunch, he entered a large i
downtown building and took the ele- ]
vator to the top floor. He entered a
small, well-furnished office. A man
rose from his seat at the desk to meet
“Hello, Ralston!” he said heartily.
‘‘You never look me up unless you
have some business on your mind.
Sit down and tell me all about tt.”
“Well, Tom, I have something 1
want you to look at. I'm wrorking on
a case, and I hope this fingerprint
may lead sojuewhere.”
Thomas Spencer, the well-known
fingerprint expert, unwrapped the
paint-box. held it to the light and ex
amined it attentively. There on the
shining black surface were two dis
tinct fingerprints. The expert picked
up a magnifying-glass, and after a
few moments contemplation, turned
to his visitor.
“Had this box not been new the
prints would not have remained as
distinct as they are. If you notice,
the marks are not on the side where a
person's fingers would most naturally
rest in picking it up. Instead, they
are on the top. as if the hand rested
on it carelessly. Do you wish the
prints photographed?”
