to supply the district attorney with a

It was Waite alone, Kane mid, who
formulated a plot to deceive JustUes
Waite still driven by the bad man of
Egypt. Every suggest in to falsify the
embalming fluid came from Waite.
Kane merely listened. saying neither no

There was much more of the sarre

Mr. Dooling was inclind to thiik that
the money was not far from Kane's

Kane's appearance at the district

unexpecteld. While no order for his ar

theless, being diligently sought on
