A seller of inferior rope hits his business partner with a crowbar and thinks he has killed him, so he fashions one of the ropes into a hangman's noose and props the body into it so it appears as a suicide.

He tells the officer that he was only knocked out by the crowbar and the rope was so cheap that it could not support his weight and broke.

Synopsis:
A building manager is approached by a ghoul who wants to rent the 13th floor. He says there is no 13th floor but the ghoul threatens to kill him if he refuses the month rental and so he draws up a lease. Whenever one of the ghoul's associates enters the elevator and asks the bellman to stop at 13, a floor appears, but when only humans are on the elevator there is no such floor. This maddens the manager and so at the end of the month he demands the ghoul show him the space so that he can ascertain he and his associates have vacated the premises. The ghoul agrees but when they exit the elevator the manager is delighted to discover the space is actually there and wants to measure it so that he can rent it out. The ghoul warns him to return to the elevator as the floor does not exist for humans, but the manager refuses to pay heed. Once the elevator door shuts, the manager's body becomes suspended inbetween the 12th and 14th floors.
