had become one of the governments most trusted secret agents His rise In the service had been phenomenally rapid The robbery of the postoffice where he was employed had given him his start A little later with the merest thread to follow he had run to earth a skilful band of stamp counterfeiters and three of Its members were now serv- Ing long terms Only a year ago when all the other inspectors had failed to find the flaw in the registry service that permitted a redstriped sack with two hundred thousand dollars worth of registered mall to disappear Da Tis putting1 his keen analytical mind om the cast within a week had dis covered the flaw In the system and only a few days later had arrested the exconvict who had profited by it With the natural interest of an old friend I had followed his career and was familiar with most of his brilliant achievements Even though the scrap which was puzzling me had no en velope and bore no postmark so confi dent was I In his farreaching powers 1 would harlly have been amazed if he had told me all about It as soon as I showed It to him Imagine then my disappointment at his absolute refusal to take up the matter at alL Dont you see how Important it Is I cried iTbls little scrap is the key to the whole mystery He was sitting with his back to the lIghtB trick most business men have these days so that they can see your face In full light while you have din culty in reading theirsyet from his tone I felt that he was inwardly amused at my anxiety Im afraid you overrate my detect lye ability and my powers as a post office Inspector he said While I am inclined tb agree with you that this bit of paper may have some bearing on the case there is nothing to show from what postoffice it came through whose hands It passed or by whom It was re celved It may not have come through the mall at all More than likely soMe messenger brought It Before I could undertake an Investigation I would have to know first that it had come through the mall second that there was some evidence that the malts were being used for an unlawful purpose iit third I would want to be certain before I began the Investigation that I would win out Thats the secret eK Jq 01

that would take us far Into the light First I was to try at once to find Hugh CrandalL I was to ask him to elthehim his knowledge of the yellow letfl ter and why he had called Katharine on the telephone the afternoon before Second failing to find Crandall III VlsIUJghishis cautioning the Janitor to admit one had a suspicious look noI neither Louise nor I had discussed what might be there to explain the mystery I was thinking that in aU probability I would find a bundle of letters from Katharine some of which might furnish a clue Third I was to ask Inspector Davis to help me trace the yellow letter I had anticipated little difficulty In ascertaining Crandalls whereabouts A broker of standing does not vanish overnight without informing his busl ness partners Before coming to the Inspector I had telephoned to Cran dalls office Great was my amazement to learn from one of his partners that they were as much puzzled as lover his sudden going away They had merely received a telegram saying that he had been called out of town unexpectedly and did not know when i4he would return The telegram hadIbeen sentfrom an office near his the night before There was no bust ness affair that would take him away so they supposed that It was some matterI moment with Davis over Our boyhood days I was thinking what step I should take next The problems of learning CranduHa whereabouts and gaining access to his rooms did not seem so simple as they had the night before A clerk entered with a card for Davis and I rose to- go Dont go yet he said Its only a man from police headquarters His errand will probably take only a min ute As I resumed my seat Detective Dowd was ushered into the room He was the typical police sleuth thick of head and foot ready to suspect the suspicious and to see the obvious In appearance in speech In manner of thought he and the Inspector were most exact opposites One was a friz zled bleareyed run of fifty whom even thu clumsier criminal

to you He turned toward me with a sue picious glance but Davis hastened to assure him that he could speak freely before me Its this he explained the old man wants to know about As he spoke hedrew something from his Inner pocket and laid it on the In spectors desk As my eyes followed his hand I gave a sudden start With difficulty I restrained an expression of amazement The object about which tornIglanced quickly at Davis I fully II to see in his face something the same astonishment rhad felt I was disappointed With a casual glance at the envelope he turned to Dowd as if waiting for him to gp on Its evidence in the Elser case the detective went on turned in by the man on post who reported the suicide He was that old party that was found dead in his room up on West Twenty third street To my mind its Just a plain case of suicide an old man tired of living The poison bottle was there on the floor beside him I dont see othing suspicious about it but the chief has taken a notion that theres something behind it and wants to know where this letter came from We searched the room but this torn envelope was all we could find The postmarks torn through but he thought maybe you could trace It any how Ill see what I can do and Ill let you know In the morning said the inspector calmly dismissing the de tective with a nod From his matter offace tone and apparent lack of in terest I would not have been surprised if he had refused this undertaking too as he had mine though iIt seemed to me that tho two bits of yellow pa Beg Your Pardon for Disturbing You Inspector per connected

for Insomnia He called here at the office and I wrote him a prescription He was to return In a few days for further treatment but he did not do so Another time The doctorhesltated There was another time I had al most forgotten a year or two before that He met me In the street one day and asked what my office hours were on Saturday He explained that he was the guardian of a boy who was in a boardlngschooL The child had some slight throat trouble and he wished me to make an examination On the following Saturday he brought the boy here a bright little chap aboub- ten Do you know the boys name What school did he attend The inspector fired this question rapidly but It was quickly apparent that the doctor had nothing more to tell so we left What a wonderful man you are I exclaimed as the doctors door closed behind us How did you learn that Doctor Bernerhad been called In after Elser killed himself There is nothing wonderful about my knowledge answered Davis with a laugh What is the first thing that people do when anything happens They run for the nearest doctor Doc tor Berner is the nearest doctor Could anything be simpler The simplicity of his logic amazed me It was like a

the floor beside mebothnever a trace of the letter could we find I cant for the life of me think lknowsort of good news for him for after heImore like himself than he had been for years Then yesterday somebody telephoned to hlmI dont know who it was for I was out marketlng and he never had any phone calls before that I know of Right after lunch he went out and was gone until after three Soon after he came in he killed himself in this very room To my mind things were beginning to look blacker and blacker for Crandall The parallel between the cases of Katharine and Elser was entirely too strong for it to have been mere coincidence We knew ItI was Crandall who had telephoned Katharine It must have been he who had called Elser There was much to be ex plained What It was that had driv en them bpth to seek death was still a mystery to me My mind reverted tot my original theory that there was a child whose existence had been kept from the world that was in some way connected with the Farrish fam ily Old Elser was the guardian of a boy Suppose this boy was the child It would establish a possible connec lion between the two suicides It would explain why Katharine might have known old Elser yet never have mentioned the man to Louise I took it for granted that Davis would ask the landlady further about the child Of course he would want to know the boys name and the name of the school where Elser kept him but he made no further Inquiries Telling the landlady he would let her know in a day orI two about the room he turned to me thICome on Kent It is time we had j some luncheon We must find Crandall I said as we left the house We must find who wrote the yel low Ifcrs Davis responded It uust have been Crandall baa serted with conviction It may have been Crandall the inspector replied Was Crandall left handed CHAPTER IV t tKatharine Speaks alone I would have gone directly to the Farrish hom IIwas anxious about Louise I had seen her since the night before though I had telephoned her early in the morning I greatly regretted having to leave her so much by herself In such distressful circumstances I thought it wiser now to prepare her beforehand for the Inspectors com ing I wanted him to see the Farrish home I felt that if he met Louise and realized the luxury and comfort in which the family lived he would better appreciate the mystery and my determination to solve it I suggested luncheon at Martins and Davis assented As soon as we had obtained a table I excused my self and hastened to the telephonel Louise told me that the condition of both her father and Katharine was practically unchanged I briefly summarized my mornings work and asked if I might bring the Inspector after luncheon By all means said Louise bring him right over I want to meet him and there may be some things I can tell him which will aid him When I returned to IwIcm on the Broadway side where I had left the inspector I found him abstractedly rolling little pellets of bread and plac- Ing them in various positions on the cloth So absorbed was he In his occupation that he hardly seemed to note my return His flying fingers would hastily mold three or four pellets In as many seconds Placing them in a row he would eye them intently Occastynally he would swoop down on some unoffending pellet and sweep it to the floor Two or three times I tried to interrupt him to learn what he wished to eat but each time he waved me impatiently away Finally not desiring to delay too lOng over luncheon I gave the waiter the order without consulting him Mechanically he ate what was put before him all the while keeping up his game with bread balls Knowlnghlm as well as I dldatterIstudying closely hIs ments I felt sure that the array ofI pellts was closely allied with the mental process bt which he was seek Ing to solve the Farrish mystery The larger pellets I decided must be theI various theories about the yellow let tor or letters and their origin The smaller pellets were the different per sons connected with the ease One pell9tafromremained The smaller ones he kept arranging and rearranging until at last he seemed satisfied The single sur viving large pellet stood directly on a crease in the cloth On one side equally distant from tIe crease but close to each other he had placed two Pf the smaller pellets The rest were in three grpups on the other side of the line For perhaps five minutes be carefully studied their position without shifting them and then with a quick motion of his hand swept them all to the floor There was some purpose distinctly criminal
