What this Mystery is about —

A brown-paper PARCEL containing a GUN and a pair of HANDCUFFS ... A LIPSTICK in a red-and-white barber-pole case that is lost periodically . . .A ONE-HUNDRED-DOLLAR BILL that also has a tendency to disappear ... An artist's BRUSH BOX, one of those long, tin affairs ... A red REFRIGERATOR with a light that goes on when the door is opened ... A DELIVERY TRUCK kept in a garage that once was an old stable ... A PICKAX used only once and slightly blood-stained ... A BEACH WAGON with one lone pas­senger ... A lady's RED WIG ... A TRAIN TICKET to Mil­waukee ... A MODERN HOUSE that has all the conveniences such places are alleged to have, and twice as much adventure.

Wouldn't You Like to Know—

  Why the beautiful redheaded girl on the train keeps dropping her lipstick so carelessly?

  What business she could possibly have had with a gun and a pair of handcuffs?

  What the honorable Chief of Police was doing with a collection of pickaxes?

  What was in the painter's' brush box that made it so valuable?
