It had become known that the WBlack Terrorn was in town and
was searching for Gram Pembroke's jewels which were hidden in the
bettom of her telephone.
Messages kept coming over the telephone from a mysterious
person, and each time Gram received a message she would feel faint
and take a few more pills for-her 'poor old body'. To make mat-
ters worse, lights kept going on and off, and later a brick was
thrown thnaugh the window widr a message attached to it. Locks

After Kay's arrival, both Edith and Art Whitman had confessions
to make, and to the amazement o all, it was discovered that Art,
tired of being treated like a little boy,had arranged with Fred
Alden to keep the lights switching off and on, nhile Edith, anxious
to know how people acted when frightened--so she could write a bet-

About mid-night a knock was heard at the door and a man enter-

room, leading three different figures in in Black Robes.
