It is not much' of an c deration to say that within a decade C.iijpn may be almost surrounded by a wof-fhless desert of spoil banks. " t is not the intention of those who op-posevstrip mining as it is now carried on, to stop stripping entirely. This is not sary. With modern bulldozers it would be neither difficult nor expensive to level off the gvsi'.M after the coal has been removed.' O le Clinton resident, with years of experience moving earth, estimates that the cost would not exceed 1 cent per ton of coal removed. This would not seriously cripple the industry and still permit "strippers" to undersell deep shaft mines on the open market, but it would mean a return to productivity for the land after a few years had passed. Not only does strip mining completely destroy the value of the land, but it means the removal of such land from the tax rolls witha, cQtresponding increase in the tax burden on property still taxable. Of course the land is not actually taken off the tax duplicates, but who would pay taxes on spoil banks? Why Indiana has permitted thousands of acres of good land to be ruined for eternity in past years, it is difficult to understand. Other states have taken and are taking steps to halt this waste. Where leveling operations have been carried out, it has been found that "stripped" land makes ideal orchards and pastures.

Then I was on the public road and I still had to circle (on the road now) around that awful meadow in order to reach the house. Well, I got to the gateposts which loomed in the dusk, I could then see the lights of the J rent house, glimmering through the trees. Soon I reached it. The door was unlocked. I Hung it open and fell into Hee- , vens arms. He caught me and his face seemed instantly to sharpen ... 1 knew I was talking, trying to tell him. He cried, "Dr. Chivery Dr. f'hivery !w .Someone else said, " Where! Where,"' and there was n flash of color as Alexia, in her long green tea gown, came hurrying from the door of the library. Nicky floated into my vision, too. Then Anna came from Humewhere, and screamed so sharply that Heevens turned to her and said in a voice of snarling authority, "Get back to the kitchen. Khut up!" Someone Nicky was helping me to a chair. Heevens ran to the telephone beyond the stairway and Alexia was telling him what to say, her pointed face a while, vehement mask. Then the trooper (Drue's guard) came running into the library, and wrested the telephone from Bee-vens' hand. "I heard you! I heard everything. Are you sure he's dead? What happened exactly? Operator, operator ..." The trooper jiggled the hook and filially got the police. "Where is Peter?" Alexia asked. "I don't know. Yes, I do. He took her home." "Took who home?" "Mrs. Chivery. They left me at the corner. Someone was on the meadow. Tell them that." The trooper was already shouting "Another murder! Dr. Chivery! In the north meadow down by the brook" presumably into Nu-gent's distant ear, "She doesn't know who did it . . . Just now, live minutes ago . . , rio, the Cable girl's still in her room . . ." Alexia looked at Nicky and Kicky looked at Alexia in utter silence. as if they didn't need wonts. The trooper said, "Okay okay okay,1 emerged into the hall again, "They'll be here right away. Don't leave the house, any of you!" He ran up to the landing where he stopped. It was evidently an order from Nugent and it was a fairly strategic spot, for he could aee the whole of the lower hall and part of the upper. Alexia looked at me, 'Do you know who did it?" . ",V. Sq . . Nicky said, almost dreamily, "Claud well, he must have got in somebody's way." Then he asked sharply, leaning over me, "What's she got on her hands?" I fell I told you over the body."

' . were almost as one face, seen 1ft duplicate, with one expression.: It was Beevens who came forward, clucked disapprovingly when ho saw my hands and said, "This way, Nurse. You'll want to wash them." I followed Beevens through the library and into the washroom adjoining it. I scrubbed my hands and then saw a small stain on the hem of my white skirt and I took that out with cold water, too. I'd lost my cap somewhere. Probably in the woodland and the police would find it and say I killed him. When I came back into the library Beevens was gone, and Alexia and Nicky were talking. "Beevens said Maud walked into town about three-thirty this afternoon ; she said she would wait here and come home with Claud after the inquest. The inquest took place in the hotel," Alexia was saying. "But she must have missed him," said Nicky. "Otherwise she and Claud would have come home together." He turned to me. "You said, didn't you, that Peter took her home in the car?" "Yes." I went to the couch to gather up my cape. "I rode into town with Mr. Huber; we went into the bar and Mrs. Chivery was there." 4 '.Ufi ltd!" gasped Alexia. "Claud must have walked rom tdwn," suggested Nicky. "He often does. And he must have intended to stop here; everybody takes the short cut through the meadow." Alexia said, "Somebody's got to tell Maud. I'll telephone." I said, "It's going to be a shock," and looked at her trailing green tea gown not a costume for walking in the meadow. Yet Chivery had been dead for some time when I found him, so she or anybody else would have had time to get home and change. Drue had an alibi; she'd been under police guard. I took a long and thankful breath. Alexia had reached the door when Nicky said, "You'd better let me do it. I'll have Peter bring her here. . . ." As Alexia paused, I walked past them toward the stairway. The trooper let me pass. Drue's door was unguarded and I wanted to go to her, but that would have to eome later. I hurried to Craig's room; he was sitting bolt upright, wrapped in a dressing gown, in the chair near the fireplace. His eyea biased; his face was stiff and white. He snapped, "Shut the door," which I did. "What are you doing out of bed? Who helped you?" "Come here. Sit down no, over here on the couch. Tell me about Claud. I heard the trooper at the telephone, and you when you came in the door. I know Claud was mur dered." "But you . . " - 1 "Listen." he said aavagely. "I'm up. it didn t hurt me to get vp.

And I rlidn't at all fancy the walk I had no airily undertaken, simply because I didn't want to refuse and then explain why. J didn't like the meadow and the shadowy patches of woodland and brush; j didn't like the dense strip cif brush and tree? outlining the little vnlley of the brook; I didn't j like the time. 1 remembered too j well the hunter of the previous night, and I still didn't think it was rabbits. . . . But in the end I scrambled over the wall and took the path. I guessed it would enme out somewhere about the parage and kitchen end of the Brent house. r Until I had got quite a distance into the meadow I didn't realize how dark it was. I went along hurriedly, my ill-gotten gams making a small chinking Bound in my pockets. I no a red the belt of woodland and the ptrip of Hark shadow which edged the brook. What, realty, had Anna run from, the night before? Once it ieemed to me there was a kind of crackle of twigs, but when I stopped to listen there was nothing. The path entered the strip of trees and sloped downward toward the brook. Then I stumbled. Something was in the path, In the middle of it. I fell on one knee, flinging out my hands to save self, my cape swirling around me. My hands encountered the obstacle. When I pulled them away, they were wet with a kind of stickiness.' I knew what was on them. I leaned over, trying not to touch the obstacle again.

This time it was dpar anH Hpfinit the soft sound of something moving in the dense brush beyond the brook, on the skpe between me and the Brent house As I listened it stopped. There was just silence and night so near and the bloody thing at my feet. I don't know how long I listened, ut it seemed all at once fully dark. There was no further sound from he thickets on the slope ahead. nd I had to get to the houe. I got awkwardly to my feet, tripling on my cape, spilling nickels. ( here was nothing anyone could do ior for Dr. Claud Chivery. All at once I started to run aek, along the way 1 had come, for I couldn't folhiw the path into those thadowy t:iirket where something lad moved.
