OF all murders, those perpe-rated by the cowardly but cunning hand of the poisoner are perhaps the most baffling, and consequently have provided some of the greatest triumphs of crime detection.

Vegetable Duck is certainly one of the most ingenious stories in which Dr. Priestley has figured, and Mr. Rhode is to be congratulated on a very capable and cleverly worked-out detective story.
