"No!" Sally protested. “He’s not like that.

Mr. Carlson* “illy asked, astonished at the expression on his face, ' What s the matter?” “What about that place, where was it?" “Sanford” ..ally replied, “San ford, Virginia.” Carlson slumped for-’ard on the table, a sickly pallor on his face. "What's wrong, Mr. Carlson?” Sally asked now, thoroughly alarm ed at the loot on the man’s face. “Want me to call a doctor?” “No, no, I'm all right,” he pro , tested. “Are you sure that what you SWELLING REDUCED And Short Breathing relieved when caused oy unnatural collection of water tn abdomen, feet and legs, and when pres sure above ankles leaves a dent.

Why do you ask?” “Listen, Sally,” Carlson went on, leaning toward her. “You love Pete, don't you?” “Yes, I do,” Sally replied blush ing. “Well, he’s down in the cellar now all tied up waiting to get shot as soon as Smith gets back with Red's gun.” Sally stifled a little cry of alarm “Don’t worry,” Carlson said sud denly. “I’m going dc vn there and untie him If I don’t let back, you’ll know that I at least did my best for him. Now you stay here and don’t move. I’ll send Pete up to you.” He left her and went down to the cellar. “Did you bring my milk, Carl son?” Pete askc* him lightly, as the man entered the room. Carlson didn’t answer. Instead, he walked ove to Pete and stood look ing intently in his face. “Looking for something?” Pete asked sarcastically. “Wilson wasn’t your father’s name, ,vas it?” Carlson asked sud denly. why do you ask me that? And furthermore, what Lusiness is it of yours what my father was named?” “None, I suppose; only I thought you might not mind telling me.” “Well, I’ll tell you,” Pete said bitterly. “I ain’t at all proud of it, because the old man didn’t give me an even .ance in life. He left me to be brought up in a regular hell! No, there's no reason why I shouldn’t tell you. His name was Brown.” Carlson’s shoulders slumped and he leaned heavily on a box. “What the hell,” Pete inquired. “Did your old man leave you like that, too?” Carlson pulled himself together with an effort “Listen, Wilson,” he said, cutting the ropes that bound Pete’s hands and feet. “I’m turning you loose, see? But the others will be here in a few minutes and we’ll have to fight our way out. And don’t ask me why I let you loose.” Pete looked at him slightly as tonished. “Suit yourself, Carlson,” he replied. “But I’m telling you now. I got the goods on you and your gang. And don’t get the idea that I'm going to let up on you just because you turned me lcose. I'm going to clean you fellers out if it's the last damn thing I ever do!” “Shut up!” Carlson hissed, shov For best results use Black and White Skin Soap (25c) before applying bleaching cream.

Smith was the first to come in the room. Jones and the little dark man followed him. “Put ’em up, mugs!” Pete com manded, rising from his place be hind the box. The three men froze in their tracks. “What th' hell!" Jones exclaimed. “This just means that I got you cold,” Pete went on. “And for keeps, too,” he added. Out of the cor ner of his eye he could see Carl son rising from behind his box. The others saw him, too, and a full realization of the thing dawned upon them. “Why, you damned dirty, double crossing bastard!” Smith hissed. And before Pete could prevent it, he pulled his gun and fired straight at Carlson. Carlson also fired straight at Smith. Jones and the little dark man pulled their guns. As luck would have it, they were facing him, so it was comparatively easy at that short distance to shoot both in their arms. Carlson lay on the floor, a hole through his forehead. Smith was shot through the neck, and Jones and the little dark man were shot through the arms. Pete tied these latter two up and went upstairs in the big room. The orchestra was playing and people were dancing, drinking, and laugh ing, all unaware of the tragedy that had occurred in the cellar be neath them. When he wr. half way across the room, he saw Sally coming to meet him. “Pete!" she greeted him with a cry of relief. “Are you all right? What happened?" The concern in her voice sent a 2_arm glow of happiness through Pete. He took her arm and led her out into the hall. “Listen, i ve got to telephone for an ambulance. Carisen and Smith are dead, and there are two other men down stairs wounded.” “Oh!” Sally stifled a little cry of horror. "Wait right here,” Pete instruct ed, and went to fir.d a telephone. In a few minutes he returned and led her to a table. “I wonder what came over Carlson,” he said suddenly, after he told her what had happened. “He came down stairs when I was tied up and asked me about my father. And when I told him he turned me loose. I got the goods on him. He was deal ing in dope; the oily rascal!” “Oh, Pete!” Sally cried sudden ly, tears swelling up in her eyes and running down her cheeks. “You shouldn’t say thrt; you must n’t!” “What’s the matter?” he asked. “Why are you crying?” “I’m kind of glad he went like that,” Sally replied, dabbing fierce ly at her eyes. “Rather than have you send him to jail.” “What are you talking about?” Pete asked her ,mystifiedly. But Sally never told him. That morning a telegram was sent to the chief of the Interna tional Detective Agency in Wash ington, D.C. It read: Everything cleaned out as or dered Stop Racket was dope Stop.
