Title pg24
Description •done it again." But the Saint was not listening. He had gotten up from his cot, and had put on his Inverness' and hunting cap. "Field work, my dear Iloto. We are going to Block 2." I cannot now recall what route we took, or how many Shah Houses we visited, but I do know we ran into every one of them to warm ourselves and that it was nearly five in the morning when we reached our destination, for the kitchen staff was already preparing breakfast. "Cook Son," the Saint addressed the ketchin-bo'. "Meb-be you can tell me something about a strange woman who ate here rast night." "Talk English, will you?" said the other, much to our surprise, ''Yeah, I had a stranger come in last night. I don't think she was all there, thought. Ran in here a few min- " ^ utes before supper .and said something about volunteering in the rice combat battalion." ^. "Rice combat battalion?" -= "That's right. Then she said she'd been running all over the place since after lunch." "Did she say where she lived?" -at "Lemme see. Oh, yeah, she said she lived at 7 Rizmania, or something like that. T?here is it?" "I'm sure I don't know. But tell us more about this lady." "Now, lemme see. Oh, yeah, she asked for something good to eat. Something real good, she said, 'cause she was starched to death." "Starched to death?" "Yeah, that's exactly what she said." "Hm," the Saint said thoughtfully. "What did you do then?" "Gave her fried rice and chow-men." "I see. And?" "She grabbed hold of the dish and rushed right out of the side-door so fast I couldn't even tell her to bring could dish. back the plate." "The mystery has been prac-tically solved, my dear fellow," said the Saint when we were outside. "Let us hurry to find the corpus delicti." "Find the corpse? Where?" I asked in amazement. "Block 7, of course; 7 Rizmania was what she said." So this was the victim of the outlandish crime: Who? As I expected, the Saint proceeded to explain: "Now, my dear Moto. Here is the complete story. This woman was under the illusion that her diet consisted only of rice. The illusion became a conviction when she found a large pimple on her forehead. She imagined that she was living in the kingdom of Rizmania. In her frustration, she went to the only meshi-hole which she thought was a rice-less, if not a price-less, kitchen. But when she was given fried rice and chow-men, ordinarily a perfectly good combination, she went finally and complete-ly mad. She snatched the dish from the cook, ran back to her block, and on her way home en-tered the Shah House where she dispose of the contents of the At this point, she fainted. That is how our friend the Warden discovered her and shouted murder. When I went in, however, she had regained consciousness and gone home . " We now came to Block 7. The day was slowly breaking. In the orange hues radiating from the eastern sky, our eyes beheld a strange figure in black, coming from the direction of the hospital. It was a woman, but she was not really walk-ing in the sense that humans walk. Her .Movements were mechanical and lifeless. "A zombie J!' I gasped. "That's the woman.," said the Saint. "A lifeless woman, returning from the graveyard shift, starched to death by fried rice and chow-men." - Globularius Schraubi
