He j comprehend ita meaning. Then he stuffed it in hla pocket and went to his room. He tossed hia hat on to the bed. drew off his coat, dropped it In a heap on the back of a chair and sat down* before the window. Moodily, he gazed out over the city. Almost unconsciously, he reached across the table and took three or four sheets of paper and drew hts pencil and began drawing hierogly phics. Slowly one of these took the shape of the lower floor of Bailey's home. Under It be scribbled: “Plan of Bailey lower Moor." Then on another sheet of paper he drew another, which took the shape of Nanette I.eßoi’a home. Under this he scribbled "Floor plan of I>eßoi home," On the third sheet of paper he wrote In this fashion: Ghtvington Nanette Leßol Lucy Wilbur Lillian Hull Dorotha Deane Larry Weldon Rodolf Holmes Young man In cap. Then, slowly, ho erased some of the names until these remained: Nanette Leßol Lucy Wilbur Dorotha Deane Larry Weldon i Rodolf Holmes Young man In cap. Then he added two more names; Kyelyn "Buddy” Deane Harmony Hale. But immediately he drew ltnes through both of these names and after the name of Evelyn Deane wrote "murdered". After the other name he wrote “Improbable”. He pushed that paper to qpe side and stared at the Leßol plan. It was, he realized woefully incomplete, but it served his purpose. He was Interested In but two rooms of that house, really in but one, the drawing room. Then he remembered the diagram which Dorotha hnd given him. He found it lying on the table where he had tossed It last night. Comparing his and the other one he found that where he had placed one question mark was Dorotha's bedroom The othei question mark filled the spot where Ihe dining room and kitchen should he Silently, he sat staring at these three diagrams It was while he wajj thus cogitating that his telephone rang Answering, a voice came to him: “This is Holmes May I coipe up .' - Vve been waiting lor you.' - Kane told him. But* • few ■soman ts paaood before Holmes knocked on the door. vFhon Kane admitted him he seemed •«- cited A fierce li:#ht burned In his eyes. A sonwl ermtrarted hla bw t u res. “I’m worried about Nanette" he announced. 'Tell me about IC" the other man said easily. “If I e»n help you—” Holmes dropped cm to the edge of the bed. “She’s —weil, you know she and I were married dast night.” Kane said that he- did. and offered his congratulations. “I don’t know whether congratula tions are In order or not.” doubtfully. "She Insists today that she has made a mistake. She wants to have the marriage annulled." “What?" Kane demanded Incredu lously. "She wants the marriage annulled,” the actor repeated downhearte«®y. “And I can’t shake the Idea out of her head.” “Doesn’t she give you any rea son?” "Her career!” with’ a snarl. “Bhe’s afraid It will ruin her if It should be come known. I tried to tell her that everything ls going to be alt right, but she won’t listen.” Kane forced himself to smile. “Get her out In a car In the moonlight,” he suggested. "She’ll change her mind.” “I’m afraid you don’t know her very well,” Holmes said ruefully. “When she gets her mind set on something bell and high water won't make her change it" “When did she make this known to you ?" "Today—lt was after you were out there. That’s what has me worried. Did you say something to her?” "Why of coursS not” Kane aaßtired Mm. “I’m a confirmed bachelor." T don’t mean that” Irnpatleotly. “Was Lucy Wilbur still with herT' “Yes.” Kane thoughtfully gazed out the window. Then: "Holmes I want you to do something for me.” “Anything I can.” he agreed. “AH right Get everyone out of that house and when the road is clear let me know.” The actor's bewildered countenance showed that he did not understand. “Never mind why,” Kane declared "You Just do what I ask. I don i care how you do It. but get them m.r cf the house." “How about Dorotha?" “I want her out of the way. .But I would like to have you si..; | theit or, at least, be within er.s .- reach." “You will be hereT* "Yes.” Aa Holmes left the room the ex pression on his face showed that he was none 100 pleased with the tas). i which had been given him.

When be was left alone Jere Kao* got Richard Bailey’s diary, threw himself across the bed on hts stom ach and began reading the small vol ume from the begtnnlng. He ho 4 read it so much already, it wami< that lie should have had it memo rized. As a matter of fact, he could m peat much of It almost verba turn. But there must be something, he told himself, that he had missed, some elusive phrase that would give him the clue for which he sought. Slowly, carefully, he digested every word, some of which were written in a smooth, flowing hand, others in a hurried scrawl. Occasionally. he came across passages which were al most illegible. The first entry, he noted, wmm til October, just a little leas than a year Itofore be met bis untimely end. His first reference to Nane-tte Leßol wait early In February. It merely said that Holmes had Introduced him to a "gorgeous exotic creature who would replace reigning stars in the affec tion s of the u*otion picture public." in March lie found this entry: "At last I have found the one woman in the world who can make me liappy. She Is kind and gentle, and young enough to be trained Into tin ways of good wKehood " And in the very next entry hr wroto: "Why can’t I he«a man twstmttf a heast?” Kane read, these-again and agaia. hoping that there might tp> some thing hidden thene that would aid him. But he found' nothing. Later on In the same month war this: “I have lost my buddy—through my own Ignorance. I guess J fust don’t understand worsen, and never will. She has found out something about me —slie won’t tel! me what It Is.” And early in April this hor>eful ex clamation: * ; T havq managed to get her a good •; .sr.igrnment. Maybe that will keep quiet." 1 The hours dragged top’ as lie burled himself hi the man’s attempt to re veal the Innermost rerrets of hia soul.
