A stir was perceptible all through the room as Miss Lloyd acknowledged by a bow of her beautiful head the summons of the coroner.

The jurors looked at her with evident sympathy and admiration, and I remembered that as they were fellow-townsmen and neighbors they probably knew the young woman well, and she was doubtless a friend of their own daughters.

Gold Bag?

The gold bag was a missleading instrument in finding the true culprit. I enjoyed how the writing went along so smoothly, though. Stone had to be called in because the main detective, Burrows, had stars in his eyes for miss Florence. This made it difficult for him since she was one of the su
