THE CRAYFISH

"First, be so kind as to bend yours a little, so that you may see the witness's mouth."
Sergeant Skillin did consent to bend his head sideways. "Why, that's only a handhold." Sure enough, just under the broad platform top-step, in the side piece of wood which supported it, a space was cut, big enough to put a hand through.
" And, look, there's the companion one on the other side." The Sergeant drew himself up, glad to counterquiz the Doctor. "They must be handholds for carrying the ladder,"
" No; if the ladder was a four-foot one, instead of four times that height, you might carry it so. But, see, this big thing, if it is carried, must be carried longways; its weight would require two hands, and, then, if this is a handhold, it should be at right angles to the way it is actually cut. Besides, these cuts weren't made by the maker. That sawing isn't professional carpentry. That he troubled to paint over the cuts shows that he wished to hide his work as much as possible. Finally, the incision is right up under the top piece."
" Yes, but that doesn't hide it when you look up from the floor."
" It is in the shadow cast by the overlap of the board above. But he had a second reason for putting the opening as high as he could, his real reason. He needed it to be flush with the underside of the top board:"
" But what about the other opening on the other side?"
" It's a blind:"
" Oh, you can't get rid of additional facts that don't support your theory by dismissing them as lead-away false clues."
" Well, now we'll get to the center, and that will show.
