THE ARMY POST MURDERS
The Characters
Katherine Cornish, myself, vis
iting Elizabeth on a mid-western
Army post.
Elizabeth, Colonel Wright's
daughter.
Adam Drew, acting command
ing officer.
Yesterday: I discover that the
note is written on a typewriter
which l had given to Charlie.
Chapter 17
Oh, Fool, Fool!
ADAM read the scrap of paper.
“ ‘Eleven o’clock,’ ” he said
reflectively. “Where did you find
it?”
“In one of those chairs in the
lounge,” Mrs. Flower explained
portentousiy. “It was tucked under
the seat cushion. ‘Eleven o’clock.’
Too bad it wasn’t dated. Or signed.
Still—it is a clue.”
“Yes, a clue. I’m very much in
debted lo you, Mrs. Flower.”
Adam sounded harassed. It was
not entirely Mrs. Flower, I sur
mised. though she had that effect
on people. He was getting nowhere
and the hours were passing. How
far he was exceeding his authority
in detaining all these people, only
he could know. They would be
growing restive. But somewhere
among them was a murderer, and
time might play into that one per
son’s hands.
Across the balcony there was
motion. It brushed the fringe of
my vision and vanished before I
could turn. What had it been—a
shadow? The reflection of a pass
ing car? Or someone?
I strained eyes and ears to catch
some identifying trace of a pres
ence. Whatever had moved was
stilL Yet I had the feeling that
someone was lurking there across
the gallery—in the shadows or
behind the closed door of one of
the unoccupied guest rooms.
Almost without thinking I rose
to my feet and stood listening,
tense. I stole one quick glance at
the door of the strange girl’s room
which had been within my range
of vision all the time I was listen
ing at the head of the stairs. Then
I began edging around the well of
the dance floor, keeping well back
from the balcony railing. The cen
tral chandelier which hung high
above me had not been relighted
since the balloon dance; the stage
lights and the lamps which dotted
the lounge provided ample illumi
nation downstairs, and the light,
rising diffusely, cast the shadow
of the balcony itself partway up
the walls that surrounded it In
this shadow I was hidden from
below. But to anyone on the same
level with me, eyes accustomed to
the lesser illumination, I would
provide an easy target
I thought about that for a mo
ment but I couldn’t feel particu
larly menared. t Perbaps foolhardy
people are simply conceited—the
most vivid imagination balks at
picturing its own extinction.
Halfway around I did pause,
however, remembering my prom
ise to stay with the sick girl. I
had not been very faithful to that
Fromise. Perhaps I should go back,
might be on a fool’s errand.
And then I heard a stifled moan
so near me that my heart seemed
to turn completely over. One step
brought me to the closed door of
the room from which that voice
had come.
Some instinct prompted me to
stand clear of the dear as I swung
it open. But nothing came hurtling
at me. no bullet whined over my
head. There was no sound, no
movement, no indication of life
within; and presently, feeling
rather foolish, I unflattened my
self from the wall and peered
cautiously in at the wide-open
door.
So Trustingly
THE room was like that other
which 1 had left a few minutes
before—the same furniture, the
same absence of ornament, the
same bleak efficiency. And at first
glance it was in perfect order. No
one was there, nothing seemed out
of place—or not quite. A second
glance, as my eyes accustomed
themselves to the deeper gloom,
discerned s dark shadow just be
yond the foot of the bed—a long,
motionless shadow that bulked as
big as a slight woman’s body.
I felt for the wall switch inside
the door, remembered that there
was only a light bracket that
turned on at the fixture. I could see
it across one corner of the room,
well fway from the bed and that
motionless shadow. Two steps
would tfke me to it
Something keener than my mind
was warning me. I left the door
wide open, riveting my eyes on
that shape on the floor. At the first
faint movement I could be gone.
Then I took those two careful
steps.
The thing on the floor did not
move. But the air in the room
stirred faintly for a moment and
the dim light grew dimmer. My
hand was on the switch of the wall
fixture. 1 turned it frantically back
and forth, but nothing happened.
I could still see. dimly, that the
prone shape was motionless.
An instant too late I realized
WOULDNT PAY rARE
SIOUX FALLS. S. D.—A man
wrote Sheriff M. L. Sells of this
city that he wanted his wife back,
but he wouldn't pay her fare
back home because he thought it
the duty of the man she ran
away with to bear the expense.

that I had been tricked. But berore
I could whirl or cry out something
black and voluminous engulfed
me something abominably soft
and clinging that wound itself
tightly around my throat, around
my arms, trussing me as securely
as a colt for the branding, muf
fling me as completely as a gag.
I felt the knot jerked tight between
my shoulders. Then along my
ankles, where my fetters left off,
I felt again that brief current of
air and, faintly through the muf
fling folds, heard the key turn in
the lock.
The realization of my criminal
foolishness gave me a strength I
had not known I possessed. I
fought savagely at the cocoonlike
wrappings. Oh, fool! fool! I had
deserted my post, walked so trust
ingly into the trap. Behind the
door—that was where the danger
had been hiding; and I had turned
my back on it. A woman’s life
would probably pay for this.
Half sobbing, I twisted and tore,
bit and squirmed, and inch by inch
the bonds worked upward from
my forearms until I could use my
hands.
Velvet —the stuff was velvet.
Someone’s evening wrap. The
thought passed briefly through
my mind.- Then I tore the thing
from my head and threw it across
the room, staggering to my feet,
gasping air into ly starved lungs.
There was a thin streak of light
above the door—the wooden tran
som, open a crack. Could I get out
that way? Or should I scream for
Adam? It was too late for secrecy.
I needed help—at once.
In that brief instant of hesitation
the crack of light-vanished, and
from the dance floor rose the
shrieks of women and the con
fused babble of voices.
The lights were out! / f &
‘Too Late’
¥ POUNDED and kicked at the
1 door and added my voice to the
clamor outside. But what chance
had I of being heard? The room I
was in was roughly above the
stage—too far from Adam for him
to distinguish my voice in the gen
eral commotion.
I gave it up and leaned hope
lessly against the door. What good
could I do now, anyway? With the
crazy monotony of a cracked pho
nograph record words were re
peating themselves in my mind.
“Too late. Too late. Too late.”
Suddenly I froze into listen
ing silei.ce. Someone had come
noiselessly along the gallery, had
paused on the other side of the
door and was drawing furtive,
panting breaths like a runner
forced to rest, yet wary of pur
suers. Instinct warned me not to
speak or move, not to seek rescue
here. Th m something clinked
lightly on the floor at my feet;
and there was silence on the other
side of the door.
The key—it must have been the
key. I aid hot take time to wonder
why it had been returned to me.
I screamed again with all the voice
I could muster and dropped to my
knees, groping in the dark.
I found it almost at once and
my fingers closed on it convulsive
ly. Nightmare clumsy, I yet man
aged to find the keyhole. I had the
door open and was in the hall
when the finger of light searched
me out from the encircling dark
ness.
“Kay! Thank God!" said Adam’s
voice, and the circle of light
swooped to the floor between us.
"You’re all right? I heard you
screaming... .’
His voice wavered a little and
the light danced at my feet
‘The murderer,” I gasped hys
terically. “He—it—was here an
instant ago. He locked me in that
room, then the lights went out
; and he threw the key over the
transom—he can’t have got far!”
“A man?” Adam asked quickly.
“I—l don’t know. It—it was
somebody.”
And then I saw how hopeless it
was. There were people on each
side of us—they nad come like
moths to the light. I saw Mrs.
Flower peering excitedly around
Adam’s arm. Behind her the
Shaws, looking almost comically
surprised. Mrs. Orpington had
come up behind me and was just
standing there, her eyes gleaming
and a funny half smile on her lips.
“Nobody passed me," she said
brightly. "I was right at the foot
of the dressing-room stairs and I
stood still and yelled until I saw
a light up here. . . . You’re sure
the door was locked?"
There was no mistaking the
skepticism in her voice. I stepped
I closer to Adam.
Adam said, “Shaw, get out to
the cars and find some flashlights,
then get busy and find the fuse
box—l think it's backstage."
“It is,” said Shaw. ‘‘Barney’s
back there with Elizabeth, mak
ing coffee. It it’s in the box he’ll
have it fixed—l heard him stum
bling around and swearing a min
ute before I came up."
“Adam," I whispered urgently,
"that girl . .
His eyes met mine, and there
was apprehension in them too.

Tree “Dentistry”
Helps In Hurricane
By HOWARD W. BLAKESLEE
AP Science Editor
NEW YORK. Dec. 19.
George Van Yahres. tree
surgeon, says the New Eng
land hurricane proved the
value of “dental fillings” for
trees.
These fillings are a com
bination of wax with a rub
ber cap placed in cavities
formed by rot or injury.
They are slightly flexible.
Van Yahres says examina
tion of 6,000 of these dental
trees showed only two brok
en by the storm. Flexibility
of the filling, he explains,
allowed the tree to sway.
Hard, rigid fillings caused
some trees to splinter.
The rubber-wax fillings
follow denial practices. The
cavity is first cleaned of
debris. Next it is flushed
with an antiseptic, which is
intended both to kill germs
and molds, and also to water
proof the sides of the hole.
After that a crown of rub
ber is made to fit the lop of
the cavity. Steel supports
fasten it over the hole in the
tree. The rubber crown has
a valve through which hot
wax is run into the cavity.
The wax is forced in under
steem pressure to make a
completely tight filling.
MAKE READY AT
AMUSEMENT PARK
MORE EQUIPMENT ARRIVING
HERE DAILY FOR BIG
ATTRACTION
1 . . I
With more equipment arriving
each day, Key West Amusement
Park which is scheduled to open
New Year’s Eve, under auspices
of Key West Fire Department, is
beginning to show a Coney Is
land atmosphere.
To date six riding devices, two
shows, the laugh getting Ro-lo
, Fun House and several beautiful j
merchandise booths have been
erected, with the balance of the
“pleasure zone” equipment, con
sisting of three more riding de
vices, six more shows and addi
tional booths expected imme
diately after Christmas.
For the free attraction for the j
first week, E. H. Philbert, gen- !
eral manager of the park has
contracted with the Five Amer
ican Eagles, one of the most sen
sational high wire acts in the
United States.
This act, consisting of four
men and a woman, mount a tight
wire 70 feet in the air, and with
out the use of a safety net or
safety device of any kind, per- j
form the seemingly impossible,
including one trick, where four
people are mounted on top of
each others shoulders.
Plans are being made, where
by a celebrated movie actress |
will appear at the park for sev- ,
eral weeks. Terms for the ap
pearance of this actress have
been accepted by her manager,
and all that is necessary now is
that contracts which have been
forwarded to the actress be
signed.
