THE MAN THEY COULDN'T ARREST

The parcel was delivered in something under two hours. The Chief himself opened it. He took out the backfiring revolver and turned it over in his fingers. At first he could not see any difference in it to that of an ordinary revolver. But a closer inspection revealed the hidden mechanism.
The gun was empty. It only held but one cartridge, and the empty case was still in position under the hammer. He pulled it off once or twice, holding it well away from himself while he worked the trigger. Each time the trigger moved, a beautifully fitted slot at the back lifted and disclosed the small round hole of the real barrel, the one that sent its bullet smashing clean into the brain of Willard Lyall.
" Neat, isn't it?" he murmured. " Hullo ! What's this ? Bless my soul ! a five-pound note ! "
He picked it out of the box and examined it.
" Brand new," said Delbury. " I'll find out the date it was issued."
The Chief smiled. " Oh yes-I see," he murmured. " I think you will find that it coincides with the date stamp on the postmark. Proves that it wasn't posted until after Lyall died. That very same night. That's evidence, I suppose, to show that this trick-thing wasn't made as an afterthought -a clever get-out of a murder charge. Cutedon't you think ?"
Delbury nodded glumly. "Seems to be too brainv to be strictlv honest." he said.
