I leave this list that the police May know one of these five would kill me Quot Arnold Henthorne smiled a a bitter twisted smile As he read the words he had just written. They would pay All of them for hating Arnold Henthorne. In death he would still retain his Power Over them. They would suffer. Only Henthorne could have conceived such a vengeance. Deliberately he folder the Aper. Then rising quickly from his chair he hurried across the study pulled a Bookcase away from the Wall and Knelt beside a Small Safe. He twisted the Knob and in a moment the door swung open. Light from the desk lamp glistened on the Metal. Henthorne paused undecided. Quot first place Helen and Joey would look a he said half aloud. He stepped to the window Quot Quot pulled Back the drawn Shade. Rain drummed unceasingly against the panes. A fresh Cool draft swept into the room Asho raised the Sash a few inches. A Flash of lightning revealed the dark coated figure of a policeman huddled against the Gate. There was another in the garage a third at the rear driveway Henthorne knew. Thunder Shook the House rattled the window. The ticking of the clock above the fireplace echoed throughout the ensuing silence. Only a few minutes More Henthorne thought. There was yet one chances Only one but he would take it. Quickly he returned to the turned the lamp Shade so thai the Light fell More upon the closed door to crumpled the paper in his hand tossed it in the wastebasket. He opened a desk drawer took out a revolver. The safety i licked. He replaced it carefully leaving the drawer open. Pulling his chair Back from the Circle of Light yet still within reach of the gun in the drawer Arnold Henthorne sat Down waited for his murderer. He could see the headlines Quot bloody Henthorne that would be old Parker a Sheet. They hated him too. Fought his methods tried to trap him. But never quite succeeded. Quot b tenth o r n e. Fina no Ike. Found Good old conservative Carter Smith. Wish Washy. Afraid to Call a Spade a Spade. Henthorne admitted he liked the Parker a paper better than the Smiths Sheet. That gang Over at Parker a had courage. That a what it takes. That a what it took to make Arnold Henthorne. He saw a lad of to thin clothed in castoffs crying in a doorway. He saw an old boy heavier stronger taunting the weeping lad. Funny that he should remember now. The older boy Billy Watson had challenged his right to sell papers on that Corner. Arnold his name was not Henthorne then had refused to fight had run away in terror. Another picture came to mind. Billy a face disappearing beneath the Waters of the River. Arnold had run screaming to the nearest policeman men had dived into the River for Billy a body. The crowd praised Arnold he had done All he could. Even Billy smother was Nice to him after her hysterical crying had stopped. They never found Billy a body. It was just As Well. Someone might have wondered about those bruised Knuckles bruised As Arnold pounded Billy a angers As he Clung to the Dock. The papers would not Tell that Story tomorrow. Not there would be columns about Arnold Benthos new a phenomenal Rise in the business world. They would Tell How dying stocks revived under his magical touch How he Pyra Mided his wealth into millions. There would be the Story of his vast factories his thousands of employees. His charities would be mentioned and the scholarships his wealth had made possible. There would be pictures too of Benthos new dark haired Dayish hts cold piercing eyes staring out from the lean hardness of his face. He hoped they would use that picture he had had made last month the one the photographer said made Hloi look like a dictator. Helen a picture would be Back in the papers again too. The society editors would see that his marriage to Helen Alston daughter of one of americans greatest motor truck manufacturers would not be forgotten. The gossip columnists had enjoyed a Field Day guessing the real facts behind the Alston Henthorne wedding wondering How one of society a favorite debutantes could marry a Man almost As old As her father. Only one reporter and Henthorne recalled grimly that he had soon lost his jobs had hit the real reason. He had heard that Henthorne had theat ened to wreck Alston motors and that old Man Alston thought More of his trucks than of his daughter. There was one mystery about Henthorne that no Newspaperman would Ever solve. For years they had been speculating As to where Arnold Henthorne got his stake. No one knew him when he first came to new York armed with $50,000 and the determination to turn it into a million. No one knew nor would Ever know a the Story of Quot big they had met in Alaska. Quot big red had come in with the Klondike Rush hunted his strike for 20 years. And he had found it who held that gun Quot you Quot be thorns gasped. The muzzle of a revolver shone held Beni Horne a hypnotised gaze. Illustrations by de Gunder in the Light. The round Black Hole far Inland. Among unmapped mountains Quot big red Quot had found his Gold. Benthos new his name had been Benson then Learned of the mine when Quot big red filed his claim. He had followed Quot big red Quot northward. He remembered Quot big red so piteous cries As he left him Blind and dying in that forgotten Valley. He had taken Quot big reds Quot name a John Douglas As Well As his claim title and Ore samples until he had sold out to a mining company. He had listed Quot big red Quot As one of the five and Quot big red Quot was dead. Head scratch off the name. No use blaming a murder on a dead Man. Queer that be had imagined even for an Nat ant that Quot big red was alive. He reached for the wastebasket. A Quot done to move Henthorne Quot the soft voice almost a whisper came from the half opened door. Quot you a Henthorne gasped. The muzzle of a revolver shone in the Light. The round Black Hole held Benthos new a hypnotised gaze. Quot bring your hands up. Keep away from the desk. You be been expecting me a Henthorne did not answer. His 1 head was still above the level of i the desk. If he could fall Forward i suddenly he might beat the shot j reach his own gun.
