Wind-behind-the-sunset, Desperate with chill, Race thp darkening sky-line, Stumble up the hill; Scrape a twiggy finger Down the slated blind, No one stayed to hear yoh, ♦ No one that, will mind!

IN EDENJS Winfield Smith CHAPTER 45 ONCE MORE Jere Kane read the last line in the diary: “They're going to try 1 to shut her up.” He gazed at it abstractedly for a moment and then tossed the little brown volume aside. Eying there on the bed, he stared out the window, the while he tried to weld the facts which he had into a strong chain. "They’re going to try to shut her up,” he repeated from memory. “I wonder who 'they* are and what is meant by that entry.” Gradually, his mind ran back over the events of the last few days, from the' time that he had first seeri tl)e body of the murdered director. The motive for that murder was plain enough. It was revenge, coupled possibly with blackmail. From what he had learned of Richard Bailey’s life in Hollywood there could be no other motive. Throughout the diary there re curred references to “Buddy”. Was that “Buddy" Deane—Evelyn? The poor, unfortunate girl had been known in Hollywood as “Buddy”. But W 33 she the “my buddy" to Whom Bailey referred? In the turmoil of his deliberations hi* mind wandered to the hospital where Evelyn Deane had died. Hfer last word 3 Kane sprang to his feet and went lo the window. That was it! There was another “Buddy”. What were those last words? “Buddy—tricked—me! ” Nanette had told him: "She robbed him of everything he had.” And Lucy had declared: “I have often heard him talk of hia buddy. He used to tell us about her—but not lately.” And then, prompted by Kane, she had added: "Something must have happened between them.” But what was that something? Undoubtedly, Kane considered, It was that the girl had found out some thing about Bailey that turned her against him, that transformed her from an adoring, forgiving creature Into a cunning, ravenous fiend. No longer was she Bailey’s “buddy”. She was a greedy, exact ing thing who exercised the woman’s prerogrative to make the man pay, not in humility and pleas for for giveness but where it apparently would hurt him most—frorii his pocketbook. The director lived extravagantly. That was obvious after a study of his home up on that hill above Holly wood. He had numerous affaires d’armour and those required money, much money. Added to that, hfe had not had an engagement fbr some time and his supply of cash had dwindled to the. point wheie he him self forced- tc tecfcc: Wfscfcmail ncjNDuiiOvNj in* v«.)■ I/AILY DlbrAl(jH MONDAY JANIJAKY z ThaT -■ ■ ’' * luoiwrti, oni'iunivi u, OO Returns to School.

Nanette had been his victim. Tt ! was her money that he was using i jto pay off this other woman. She | had paid him handsomely, he had no doubt of that. But who was getting the money? Kane looked at his watch. Seven o’clock! Why didn’t Holmes tele phone? Had he failed in his mis sion? He was just about to decide to telephone the Leßoi and ascertain for himself the reason for the delay when the phone rang. He leaped to the Instrument and shouted: “Well?” But when the voice came to him over the wire he felt a chill of deso lation in his heart. ’Mere?” Jt was Inspector Mae- Quarrie. “Yes.’’ “I’d like to see you for a moment. How about at dinner?” Kane told him that he was await ing a telephone call and could not leave the room. “I’m coming up.” the other said and before Kane could stop him he hung up. Jere Kane was in no mood for MacQuarrie’s banalities at the mo ment: He wanted to he left alone with his thoughts, but how, he asked himself, could he deny himself to an old friend. Presently, without ceremony, the inspector walked into the room. Ben MacQuarrle looked at hlin through quizzical eyes, then: “Son, you’re in trouble.’’ “Don’t I know it?” hotly. “Take it easy, Jere, take It easy. If I can help you—” Kane shrugged his shoulders and turned away. The oldfer man went to him and. in a fatherly manner, slipped his arm about his shoulers. “Come, come.” he said comforting ly, “I know what you’re up against. I’ve just had a talk with Lee.” “Yes?” with a scowl. "It’s about the Hull girl.” “What’s that?” quickly. “What about her?’ MacQuarrie grinned. “I thought that would Interest you." Kane dropped down on the edge of the bed and MacQuarrle took posses sion of the easy chair. After a mo ment: , “Lillian Hull;’’ the inspector said slowly, "knew who murdered Rich ard Bailey.” i “How do you know that?” the other snapped. i “Now, just keep quiet and let me , talk. And when I’tn through you I can ask all the questions ybu want.” : He fumbled in his pocket and flnal- I ly fbund that fbr which he was took • ing:, a shfeet of stationery.

He said you promised to see him this afternoon but you didn’t show up.” “I’ve had a lot to do,” defensively. “I know you have, son,” kindly. “You’re up agaihst one of the tough est cases I ever heard of. I’m not censuring you, but —” “I promised John Lee I would de liver the murderer in twenty-four hours,” Kane cried. “Ben, I’ye got to make good.” “Twenty-four hours or forty-eight hours, Jere, it’s all the same.” “What’s the chief doing to help me?” bitterly. "He’s carrying on an independent investigation. You don’t need t* think for a moment that he’s laying down on the job. He’s not hamper ing you—that little tiff you had with Him is forgotten—but he’s trying to pick up some loose ends. But what do you think of that,” he indicated the sheet of paper. , Kane glanced down at the paper. Tt %vas written in a rather cramped style, as though it had been penned Hastily. He read: “Larry— “ You’ve got to help me. You have to. If you don't hurry I’m going the way of the others. I know it—l’m marked. Lillian.” “Did Le* tell you where he got this?” Kane demanded. “Yes. He said Sergeant James found it in the Hull girl’s desk.” “In her desk?” quizzically. “Yes. The desk was locked. They had to break it open. That was after you left there.” Kane stared at the floor and un consciously rubbed his chin. Pres ently: “Did they find anything else?** shortly. "Yes. This.” MacQuarrie handed him an envelope. Hastily, Kane drew out the sheet of paper and unfolded jt. Neatl* typewritten was this message: “Lillian— " You’re getting too fr-endly with that person. If you don’t watch out you’re going to get in tjouble. She’s a devil. You can’t trust her. “Take my advice and avoid her. She’s in a position where she can do a lot of harm. Larry.” Kane was on his feet in a flash, snapping his fingers. His face beamed; an almost fanatical light gleamed in his eyes. “I’ve got it. Ben, I’ve gifc it!" he, cried. “I’m going to need just, one thing to clinch it.” “Who is it, Jere?’’ the Inspector asked eagerly. “It’s —” But the insistent ringing ! of the telephone stopped liim.

Y must lose three heart tricks, three club tricks and two trump tricks, at least- Probably Y would have won one trick more than his partner did at spades, but he would have bid one trick higher. Doubtless A should have doubled the 2-Spades, unless he intended bidding and playing the hand at spades. B would have doubled a shift to 8-Dia monds.
