Look here,, sir?arid here!" He pointed, and Barry looked. | There were clean places on the oily? floor, as though indeed someone had tried to obliterate their foot-i prints. Barry went carefully over I every yard of space. Then he! straightened and inquired casually: "How did you first learn of the | trouble up at the huse? Did Martha or another of the maids come out here to sond you for a doctor?" j "No, sir. I'd gone up to the ser-' vants' dining room to have a cup1 of coffee, and was Just sitting down | | to it when Martha came flying from, the young ladies 'room with her face as white as a sheet and told me to go as fast as I could?that Miss Laurel was dead." Barry turned as il to depart, but at the "threshold ho dropped hla handkerchief and. stopping to re* cover it, turned once more. "By the way, I was having a lit tle disousion with.Lieutenant Cad mus a while ago about the exhaust, of motors in general, and I asked ?f a ruber tube could bo attached in some way to the exhaust pipe on a car and led out of doors, so that, when tha engine was running the fumes would escape into the outer air. Ho says it could not be done; that the pressure of the exhaust would force off the rubber tubing. What do you think?" "Me? I thing he's a simp!" The retort came promptly. "Why, I've seen it done myself! It was done as an experiment, Just as you said, sergeant, to see if the fumes could bo driven directly out of the gar age. It was extrarheavy tubing, or couso, and had been fastened on pretty tight, but it held all right." "Is there any extra heavy tub ing of that sort lying about the gorago hero?" demanded Barry. iHis voice had suddenly sharpened. I "Why, there was some." The chauffeur looked his wonderment. "We never used it, though, and I don't know what has become of It. I'll look for It. sir, if you like." I "1 wish you would." i He loft and proceeded slowly to tho hou?<e. When Prank had drawn his attention to the cleaned spaces, ho had observed something which had escaped the other's eye: A tiny, rounded spot of mud with an elong* ated triangle in front of it. Barry recognized tho print of a small, high-heeled slipper, and he know that when he had found it and its owner tho search ?pr this sinister Cinderella would be at an end. He found Anna tho cook, Louise and Martha all congregated in the kitchen, and a singlo glance at their feot assured him that none of thom could have worn that fairlyllko flipper. "Do you know If Mrs. Ttulor has been out to the garage' today?" "Why, no, sir!" Martha stam mered. "Tho poor lady .hasn't been out of doora except for a minute on tho iront poijch when tho cor oner came." Barry dismissed the subject, and asking when* tho telephone was, hu called up Whaloy's garage. Tea, Frank had slept tho night in Peto's own room, and who the devils' busi ness waa it, anyway? Frank's abili was established be yond further question. Ho walked silently to tho front of tho houso .and hearing the voices of Mrs. Tudor, the sheriff, and Professor Semyonov in tho library, he vaulted quickly up tho stairs. The locked door of the room in which Laurel had met hor death presented no difficulties to him, and in a momont he had opened it with a skeleton key. The two narrow, empty, tumbled bods, with clothing scattered about and the breakfast tray with only one chorolato cup used wore the first objects which mot his gaze. "Ho examined carefully the tiny pair of low-heeled lounging slip pers which stood on the floor by tho bed nearest the window, then turned hir. attention to tho pink satin mules beside the other bed. shaking his head ho was replac ing them them when, kicked or thrown far under the valance, ho discovered n pair of incredibly small dull-black satin slippers with exaggerated pointed toes and high stilted heels. They had boen curled all out of shape. As he drow them forth he felt the grating of tho mud which still caked them, and realized that they were flopping wet. Ho had risen and was examin ing them with minute care when an exclamation from behind him made him turn swiftly. Pay Tudor stood in the doorway watching him. As her eyes foil up on tho objects in his hand she oponed her lips, but no words came. "Can you toll me, Miss Tudor, to whopn theso belong?" "They are mine, Sergeant Barry." CHAPTER VIII Tho look In hor clear, limpid eyes was that of a child who docs not understand, but sonaes no danger. Dospito the damning revelation Barry felt an odd Impulso of com punction. Sho appeared so small and frail, yet he, as well as overj body else in Sandy Cove, bad heard of tho lortitude and courage sho had displayed during her two years of unceasing service. Could that courage and fortitude turn into im placable relontleasnoss under tho urgo of reckless passion and a de sire for rovenge against the girl, who she learned only tho previous night, had supplanted her in her absence?
