to listen to, Daumery and Nieder I asked her politely, Will you spell it, please I meant the Daumery, since I already had the Nieder down in my notebook, her name being, so she had said, Cynthia Nieder Her lovely bright blue eyes changed expression to show that she suspected me of kidding heras if I had asked her to spell Shakespeare or Charlie Chaplin But I was so obviously innocent that the eyes changed again and she smiled She spelled Daumery and added, Four ninety six Seventh Avenue Thats what we get for being so cocky about how famous we arewe get asked how to spell it What if someone asked you how to spell Nero Wolfe Try it, I suggested, smiling back at her I extended a hand Put your fingers on my pulse and ask me But dont ask me how to spell Archie Goodwin, which is me That would hurt Wolfe grunted peevishly and readjusted a few hundred of his pounds in his built to order high test chair behind his desk You made, he told our visitor, an appointment to see me I supposed you needed a detective If so tell me what for, without encouraging Mr Goodwin to start caterwauling It takes very little to set him off I let it go by, though I am much particular than his insult implied I felt like indulging him because he had just bought a new Cadillac sedan, which meant that I, Archie Goodwin, had a new car, because, of the four men who lived in Nero Wolfes brownstone house on West 35th Street not far from the river, I was the only one who drove Wolfe himself, who suspected all machinery with moving parts of being in a plot to get him, rarely left the house for any reason whatever, and neverwell, hardly everon business He stayed in his office, on the ground floor of the house, and used his brain if and when I could pester him into it Fritz Brenner, chef and supervisor of household comforts, knew how to drive but pretended he didnt, and had no license Theodore Horstmann, curator of the orchids in the plant rooms on the roof, thought walking was good for people and was still, at his age, trying to prove it That left me In addition to being chief assistant detective, bookkeeper and stenographer, the flea in the elephants ear, and balance wheel, I was also chauffeur and errand boy Therefore the new car was, in effect, mine, and I thought I ought to show my appreciation by letting him call me a tomcat at least once Another thing, the car had cost plenty, and we hadnt been offered an acceptable job for over a week We could use a fee The blue eyed female treat looked as if she wasnt short on cash, and if I riled Wolfe about a little thing like a personal insult he might react by broadening out and insulting her too, and she might go somewhere else to shop So all I did was grin understandingly at Cynthia Nieder, brandish my pen over my notebook, and clear my throat II Daumery and Nieder, Cynthia said, is as good a name as there is on Seventh Avenue, including Fifty seventh Street, but of course if youre not in the garment trade and know nothing about itI imagine your wives would know the name all right Wolfe shuddered No wife, I stated Neither of us Thats why we caterwaul Well, if you had one she would know about Daumery and Nieder We make top quality coats, suits, and dresses, and we confine our line, even here in New York The business was started twenty years ago by two men, Jean Daumery and Paul Niedermy Uncle Paulmy fathers brother Its Excuse me, Wolfe put in Will it save time to tell you that I dont do industrial surveillance No, thats not it, she said, waving it away I know you dont Its about him, my uncle Uncle Paul She frowned, and was looking at the window beyond Wolfes desk as if she were seeing something Then her shoulders lifted and dropped again, and she went back to Wolfe You need some background, she told him At least I think it would be better Daumery was the business head of the firm, the organizer and manager and salesman, and Uncle Paul was the designer, the creator If it hadnt been for him Daumery wouldnt have had anything to manage and sell They owned it togethera fifty fifty partnership It was my uncles half that I inherited when my uncle killed himselfanyway, thats how it was announced, that he committed suicidea little over a year ago That gave me two thoughts one, that I had been right about her having the price of a fee and two, that we were probably in for another job of translating a suicide into a murder I suppose I should tell about me, Cynthia was saying I was born and brought up out West, in Oregon My father and mother died when I was fourteen, and Uncle Paul sent for me, and I came to New York and lived with him He wasnt married We didnt get along very well together, I guess because we were so much alike, because Im creative too but it wasnt really so bad, we just fought all the time And when it came down to it he let me have my way He was determined about my going to college, but I knew I was creative and it would be a waste of time We fought about it every day, and finally he said if I didnt go to college I would have to earn my living, and then what do you think he did He gave me a job modeling for Daumery and Nieder at top salary Thats what he was like Actually he was wonderful He gave me the run of the place too, to catch on about designing, but of course he wouldnt have done that if he hadnt known I had unusual talent What kind of talent Wolfe asked skeptically As a clothes designer, of course, she said, as if that were the only talent worth mentioning I was only eighteenthat was three years agoand completely without training, and for two years I only modeled and caught onto things, but I had a few little chances to show what I could do I was surprised that my uncle was willing to help me along, because most established designers are so jealous but he did Then he went West on a vacation, and then the word came that he had killed himself Maybe I ought to tell you why I wasnt surprised that he had killed himself Maybe, Wolfe conceded Because I knew how unhappy he was Helen Daumery had died A horse she was riding had gone crazy and thrown her off on some stones and killed her She was Daumerys wifethe wife of my uncles partnerand my uncle was in love with her She had been one of their modelsshe was much younger than Daumeryand I think she was the only woman Uncle Paul ever lovedanyhow he certainly loved her She didnt love him because she didnt love anybody but herself, but I think she probably gave him the cherry out of her cocktail just because she enjoyed having him like that when no other woman could get him She would I didnt put it in my notes that Miss Nieder had disapproved of Mrs Daumery, but I could have, and signed it Helens death broke my uncle up completely, Cynthia went on I never saw anything like it I was still living in his apartment He didnt say a word to me for three daysnot a single wordnor to anyone else, and he didnt leave the apartment day or nightright in the middle of getting ready for the showings of the fall lineand then he said he was going away for a rest, and he went Four days later the news came that he had committed suicide, and under the circumstances it didnt occur to me to question it When she paused Wolfe inquired, Do you question it now I certainly do, she said emphatically I wasnt surprised, either, at the way he did it He was always keyed up and dramatic, about everything He was by far the best designer in New York, and he was the best showman, too So you would expect him to do something startling about killing himself, no matter how unhappy he was He took all his clothes off and jumped into a geyser in Yellowstone Park Wolfe let out a mild grunt I gave her an admiring eye for her calm voice and manner in dishing out a fact like that, but of course it was a year old for her Under the surface of that geyser, she said, down below, the pressure in the pipe from above keeps the temperature far above the boiling point, according to an article about it I read in a newspaper That seems conclusive, Wolfe murmured Why do you now question it Because he didnt die Because hes not dead I saw him last week, here in New York,
