High Prices Are Not Only Expect
ed To Rule For This Crop, But
Also For the 1943 and 1944
Although, due to favorable hand
ling weather, over half of the crop
will be ready for market at its open
ing, there is no reason to rush to sell
and cause to put tobacco on any
floor a week to ten days and have
it drift in quality as a result of ex
posure before sold.

"Thus a company, instead of incurring the expense

THE WAYNESVILLE MOUNTAINEER
THE WAYNE MURDER CASE
By AR THUR HOERL
"I suppose you're tryin4 to hint
that me bein a Bailor did the
tying. Well, you're crazy!"
Dale appeared to disregard
Boulter's words. He turned to
Wilfred Sands as thought he sud
denly remembered something. ;
"Now I understand what that
warning note meant! 'You next!'
This murder was already done and
Miss Gloria is spotted as the next
victim. Lo you think you'd better
tell Jardin to stick close to her?'
"That's not a bad thought, Dale."
His next words were whispered to
Captain Blake, who left the room.
"Come on, what've you got to
say about me tying that knot?"
asked Boulter almost belligerently.
"Sav are voti the onlv sailor in
te World? All I said was that it
that it took a sailor to tie and untie
file like that."
"If you fellows wasn't so busy
trvinir to find out who killed the
ilil man you'd have, the right one
oc'ke:i iij-'long ' ago,"
"Whom do you suggest?" asked
"Siiire-est? I know. It couldn't
he anybody else except that young
Bob Wayne, I heard what went
on this afternoon. The girl's room
is right next to the one old Wayne
nut us in. Earlv this afternoon
that fellow Claude comes into the
room and starts makin' love to her
From what they said he must've
been niakin' a habit of it. Any
way, pretty soon I hear Bob
Wavne co into the room. There
was a terrible argument between
the two lads. I heard Bob say
that he'd kill Claude if he ever put
a hand to the girl again. Uaude
then said something I didn't catch,
but it made the older youngster
mad enough to kick Claude right
put of the room. There was so
much commotion that the old man
heard it and came Out of the
library. Then him and Bob had a
row. That's when he told Bob what
he was going to get in his will.
What he told the old man then was
plenty. I guess he would've liked
to make it stronger only Gloria
was present. Anyway, he did say
that any man ought to be dead be
fore he did a thing like that. The
old man laughed with that crazy
laugh of his and told the boy that
he would have the girl even after
he was dead.
"There's the whole thing open
an' shut like a log book. What
could be plainer than that Bob
Wavne kills the uncle first before
he can sign that paper and then,
to get even with his cousin, makes
a complete job of it?
"Sounds plausible, doesn't it,
chief?" queried Dale.
Sands made no reply. Dale turn
ed to Boulter again.
"That bein er the case tell us how
Bob Wayne killed his uncle."
"Sav.. vou'll have to figure that
out for yourself. I just give you
the facts. You're detectives, you
ought to know how it was done."
"Whv not get Bob Wayne up
here and question him, chief?"
Sands nodded. He remained in
the library while Dale descended
fho Rtnirs with Boulter. He re
turned with Robert Wayne and
Captain Blake, Under questioning
Robert Wayne confirmed every
thing that Boulter had told. In
omo Snatnnopa ht even went furth
er as to detail, but none of it shed
mi, mnn liht on the subject than

ert was dismissed and Sands, Blake
or, n-jio vLprp left alone.
How do vou figure it, Cap-
tini' asked Sands wnen tney

"Well, there was a lot of trutn
