`There!' he cried triumphantly, `I told you it could be done. It's stuck in the sofa cushion instead of the ceiling, for which I was aiming; but you must admit that my hand was behind my back for not more than a fraction of a second. Why did you hesitate when I mentioned Miss Cornelius's name, when you were emphatic in denying that you suspected the Parkes ?'
`A good many of the objects certainly seemed to come from her direction,' said Clinton slowly, `and it struck me that once or twice she called attention to them almost too soon. You know the quick, startled way she had of exclaiming: "What's that?" so that all of us looked in the direction she was looking in. Well, it struck me as a bit fishy-that was all.'
`Look at your notes a minute,' Saxon went on. `Things have happened this evening on the stairs, in this room, and in the drawing-room; while we have been sitting all together, and while some of us have been here and some in the drawingroom; but you will notice that the manifestations other than the noises and rappings only took place in the presence of Miss Cornelius.'

It 's like striking an old woman,' he added, after a pause. `My God! Clinton, I wish you had never brought me here.'
`And what do you make of it all?' asked Miss Cornelius with a smile, when they were all assembled in the drawingroom., `I do so hope you are going to set our fears at rest.'
Saxon looked her straight in the face. He saw the false
