XXIX DILLON had finished making photo-copies of the will when we got back to the oflice. I down at the desk and looked nt the original. It was typed or. a single sheet of ordinary bond paper. It was very brief.. Albert Kcmmer, being sound of mind, wished to leave and bequeath 70 .-per cent of all property which he ' iiosse.ssed, or to which he might be 'entitled at the time of his death, to Edward Fields, in recognition of his faithful service. He wished .the remainder lo be divided equal. !>• among Katherine Lane, Daniel •Morrison and Christopher Witmer. in recognition of same. In witness . whereof, he had hereunto signed his name, and it did look like Al's burly script. Tt was the kind of will yon copy out of an almanac. '^The date was July a year ago. '.There were two witnesses, scrawled signatures that looked like Paul C. Cragsriale and Jerome Martin. No addresses. , Later I walked, up the cinder road to Chicken Alley. Sally Ann Prushnick's room was down at the end, in CoU.igc 10. f slopped for ,a moment at No. 9 and kt.cxked at Kilty Lane's door. "Come in," she said, lazily stretching out the words. ; I opened'the door. "Oh, it's Morrison," she sni.i. She waved a glass at me. "dii <IO\VF —have a drink." .'She v/asn'l d ru u k ; just a little greased in the hinges. "Thanks," I said, "but I'VE got to run." "Sit down before I fire you." "I dropped in to tell you you're the new owner of Hiflh Hill,'but I Eecm to be a little late with the news." "Some of us just phoned to see how Eddie is &nd he told us.

"I guess you think I shouldn't be celebrating," she *aid By Joseph Shall it Well, I'm not. I liked Al a lot." "Sure, I know, Kilty See you later." 1 crossed to the nexl cottage, went down the hall and knocked on Sally Ann's door. I heard her spring up, clatter, across the room. The door yanked open. "Oh, Dan! I've boon looking for you." But her big, ruddy face.was light and somber. "I've got something to tell you." : walked down Honeymoon Lane to a dilapidated rock fireplace here and a semicircle of chipped, rolling logs. Sally Ann walked across the leaf-crusted earth and sat down on one of the logs. T guess you're wondering why 1 look you so far." "Okay, tell me." "Because (his is where a certain fellow brought me," she said, suddenly bitter. "Not Dave Fields?" "The same . . . Friday night al the dance, ! guess he must have danced eight time.s wilh me, and all Ihe sweet talk he gave me. I'm silly for paying attention to 'that kind of thing, but after all, a girl is only human. Even if you know a fellow's a liar, you believe half of what he tells you if he tells It nice. Well, he took me for a walk up Honeymoon Lane"—she faced around at me abruptly—"but not when you think he did. 1 * You mean It wasn't right after the dance?" 'No, it wasn't, tt was yesterday about one in the afternoon. What I told that police captain was a lie." "I knew II, Sally Ann." "Yon knew?" When Sally Ann showed surprise, she pul her heart in it.

I knew you'd Cffme out with it before too long— I knew you couldn't .keep your teeth clamped on lhat fib." "You're all wrong there. Don't think I'm owning up to the truth because my conscience bolhers me." "Why are you?" ''Because I hale men." • * • • T WAITED a while, let her cool ' down, before I prodded her into talking again. "Do you want to tell me why you told that little fib?" 'Because he asked me to. Dave Fields. That's what he took me for a walk out here for. Oh, he didn't do it cold—lie sweetened me up first. But after he had me softened up, he let me sec he was worried about Something, and when 1 asked him what It was, he kept pulling me off. Just lo make me more curious. So finally he told me. "He said lhat after he took me home from_thc dance, he went to his room, but he couldn't go to sleep. So about a quarter to two, he got up and took a litlle walk outside to make himself sleepy. He was out for about 15 minutes, and then went back to bed. The next thing he knew, ho heard people out in the hall talking aboul Ihe awful thing that happened in the office. Then he all of a sudden remembered you once heard him quarreling wilh Eddie and then later arguing with Mr. Kemmcr, arid he thought maybe you might gel a funny idea he was Involved in this awful crime and tell Ihe police. So he decided it would be belter not lo mention his walk, just so nobody would get suspicious. So when the police questioned him, he satd he was in bedell the lime, he slept all through th« fuss, till somebody woke him at 4 o'clock." She looked at me to see how I was taking it, <md rushed on. "Well, Ihen Ihis fellow in the room next to him spoiled cverylhing by telling the tops he heard Dave go out earlier. So that's what he look me out here for—ho wanted me to say he'd lied just 10 protect my reputation. I was lo say he'd been with me from a quarter to two till 4 a. m."
