Officer Ken Johnson, Turtle's com- panion, smiled siekishly. In just five minutes the pair would have been relieved of duty for the night. Tuttle glanced into his code book, holding it beneath the instrument board light. "Code 76." He re- peated the number that had come from the short-wave set. "Murder," he read. "Man shot and killer has escaped." Tuttle closed the book and grinned. "Well, that ain't so bad. Murders was always my meat and drink." Johnson, who was driving, spun the wheel sharply. They slued off the main thoroughfare and tore madly along a dimly lighted side street. Five minutes later the car drew up in front of a pretentious- looking apartment, before which a small crowd had gathered. The policemen pushed their way to the front door. ordered the liveried footman who was standing there to allow no one to enter and went in- side. A greatly excited superin- tendent met them in the hallway. "This way, gentlemen. I thought you'd never come." He stepped into an elevator, and the officers followed. At the tenth floor they alighted and the superin- tendent pointed to the door directly opposite. "It happened in there, gentlemen. Harris, Mr. Wain- wright's butler, will let you in. It was Harris who spread the alarm." Tuttle rapped loudly on the door and stepped inside the moment it , was opened. Johnson followed. The man who confronted them was ---...__ "In tbat event," sam Officer Tut- ffe sternly, "we'll Imve to charge you with the murder Of your era. ployer ! '" obviously Harris, the buffer, and a badly frightened buffer, too, Tuttle thought. They could see the figure of a man lying ,on the floor in a room just off the entrance hall. Tuttle bent over the body. The victim had been shot squarely between the eyes. The officer knew vaguel~ that Edson Wainwright was a prominent flUSh. cier, and was reported to have lost heavily in the stock market. Tutffe stood erect and eyed the butler. "What happened?" he asked. Harris gulped. "I don't know, sir. I was in the pantry, preparing a sandwich and a glass of milk for Mr. Wainwright wl~o had Just come in. I heard a shot, and rushed into the living rectorate find this." He paused, staring helplessly at his dead master. "Know where the shot came from?" "It must have come from over there-through that window." "What makes you think so?" "It sounded sort of muffled. Be- sides, there's a fire escape there. A man could have been standing out- side and made good his escape.'" Officer Johnson had reached the window in his rounds, and now Tuttle turned to ask him a question. "How's it look. Ken?" Johnson grunted. The window in question was open and the police- man was tugging at the screen. Sud- denly he stopped, seemed to exam. ine something with unusual interest. "Harris is right" he said, joining the others in the center of the room. '~'here's a fire escape there and It would have been easy for the tour. derer to turn his trick and get away." Tutffe looked abruptly into Hat. ris' white face. "You been here all evening?" "Yes. air. Since early morning." "And no one else was around? No one came in or went out?" "No one except Mr. Wainwright." "In that event," said Officer Tut- tie sternly, "we'll have to charge you with the murder of your em- p1oYer[" Harris gasped. ~ny--I don't un- derStan& 1--that is, you can't ao- cram me without proof.'" '~rhat's true," Tuttle gasped. "Listen, Harris, we know you killed Wainwright so you toilet as Well come clean." "You know! How? You haven't any proofi" Tuttle leaned close. '~t's true that Wainwrighl; 16st heavily in the stock market, isn't It?" "Yes." '~t's true his brokers have run 1 V him ragged by continually calling up for more margin? And it's true that Wainwright was Just about out of funds?" , "I don't know. I know he re- ceived a good many calls." "And you know also his brokers called him this morning. You know he had to have money, and he asked you for what you had. promising to double the amount when he paid you back. You gave it to him~ probably your whole life's savings. And tonight you discovered he'd lost it all. You were broke, with- out a chance of getting It back. So you waited for him to come in, in- tending to kill him, which you did! That's true, isn't it?" For an instant Harris' eyes wav- ered. His expression was that of blank amazement. Why~why~how did you--that is --" he paused, staring helplessly in- to the officer's face. There wasn't much he could do. Tuttle had the whole story down to its minutest de- tail. It was too amazing, too shock. ingly true to be contradicted with. out fear of incrimination. "Self-defense is your best alibi," Tuttle was saying as he snapped on the cuffs. "It's your only chance." His tone was not unkind. Later, once more in the patrol car, Officer Johnson let out a long whistle. "How," he asked, "in the name of all creation, did you dope it out? And me always thinking you were a dumb bloke." Officer Tuttle grinned pleasantly. This was his moment of triumph, and he took advantage of "it. "I don't know nothin' but what I read in the papers," he grinned. ""Yeah! Well, get it off your chest. It's your night to crow." Turtle lighted a cigarette. They, were off duty now. "It was likeI this," he began. "I guessed it!"1 "Guessed it?" ] "Sure. This evening I read how Wainwright was about ready to blow up, and his borrowing money from his butler Seemed like the only logical s~olution. I took a chance, and mdde a bulls-eye. I'll bet Harris is s~ill trying to puzzle l out how I did it." "Fine. But you must have hadI something to arouse your sus- picions. You just couldn't accuse a man like that without a bit of evi- dence." "Oh, thatl" Turtle flicked his cig. arette airily. "Well, that's where the secret lies. You see, when I examined that screen I found a hole in it just like Harris said I would. Only the bullet that had made the hole was shot from the inside, as was indicated by the fact that the pieces of wire were forced outward. I figured that Harris had shot that hole throush the screen Just to make it look like some one stand. ing outside had killed the old man. And when he swore that no one else had entered the room, I knew I was on the right track. That's why I took a chance on hatching up the rest of the story." "Oh, I see." Officer Johnson spun the wheel and brought the car to a stop before the curb at headquarters. "Well, that Just goes to prove what I get for not reading the papers. I knew you couldn't have doped it all out yourself." Foot Deformity Started Vogue of Pointed Shoes Sometimes fads in shoes have lasted for centuries and probably caused about' as much misery as aH the wars fought in those same years. Pointed-toed shoes and the high French heels are two of the worst offenders that are still with us. Pointed-toe shoes eame into fash- iem in the Eleventh century in the court of William H of England, where a nobleman known as Fulk Rechin used them to hide a deform. ity, and by the reAgn of Richard II the pointed court slippers were so at the ends that they were fas- temxi up, out ~f the way, with light chains to the knees of the wearers. Pointed-toe shoes hpve been in and out of fashion ev6r since. Am recently as 1900 and 1905 the "sports" of that byline era used to be proud of their bright yellow. colored "pig.stlckers" that went nicely with their peg-top pants and broad-brimmed snllor straw hate. By somewhat the same route---via the courts of royalty--cams the French heel into the place of lash. ion which it still holds today. Catherine de Medlcl came to tim court of the French King Henry II to be his bride. Because she was so~t and tiny ~ brought with her from Italy special sho~ with built-up high heell. Beceuse It o~ was the mark of a queen, the fad caught on and has stayed with us ever since to the discomfort and, torture of mfllis~s of women. Back in the 1800~ the fad for French heels became so great that court ladles in France used to wear heels from 8 to 20 inches tall Even ~men took up the high heel fad short King ~Louis XIV once decided he would top all his court retinue. He came out on Stflta| No one topped that. . .. ~.:-,.'::'ii:.. -::~i" .""-"!"b'T.:~.: :':'~::":~'~ :.-:::-i::w. .... ' ", :'~"|~:"'b.
