Story Synopsis:
      Robert Goldsborough story #2 about Nero Wolfe's continued exploits.
      Wolfe learns from Lon Cohen that a hack newspaper mogul plans a hostile takeover of the "Gazette" newspaper. Wolfe becomes so incensed that he purchases an expensive advertisement to denounce the move. He also publicly announces the Haverhill "suicide" actually is a murder.
      The mogul's ex-wife hires Wolfe to expose the murderer and "Gazette" employees are grilled or aid in this. Lon gets a special view from behind the waterfall picture for the dénouement.
