Mr. Flint's voice dissipated Rudolph
Van Vechten's bewilderment; but the
young man remained completely non nonplused
plused nonplused over the seemingly inexplicable
manfler in which his Cousin Paige's
purse had appeared. He met the de detective's

questioning stare; then he abruptly
dropped into a chair.
"Flint" he said, "you took my

have told me all about this?"
So slowly did Mr. Flint obey, that
the other could not restrain his impa impatience.

"Suppose," returned the quiet
voice, "you first answer my question

"No" bluntly, "I don't. Until to today

her whereabouts, but" he weighed
the shining purse in his hand, contem contemplating

You have as much feeling as a

"I am stunned. Give me a moment
to grasp this hideous suggestion."
And he did succeed, gradually, in
pulling himself together. The very
idea was so shocking, so far beyond
the pale of any possible experience
that he might within reason expect,
that his admirable imperturbability
was for the moment shaken. He final finally

resumed. "The episode of the four

The sharp gray eyes swept Van
