The death of U*ura Colton. realized, might break him as prosecuting attorney in the county It behooved him to dig up the lowdown oo wbat had actually Happened. And so he told his secretary that he did not wish to be disturbed Then be locked the door ot bis private office and sat down to think. He tried to think of motives and suspects and how tbe crime wu done. But all he could think about was the practical eflect ot Laura Colton's death. Her estate would be UM largest In the olatory at the county. The attorney fee would be almoct enough for a lawyer to retire on. Johnny McAdams, the Col ton attorney, would get the tee but be wouldn't retire. Johnny wa 100 ambitious. Someday tic woul probably marry Laura Colton' daughter Pat. and take over th town pretty much a* Laurm oad. Paul Baker felt envy for John nie. Pat Coltorj was a prize In her self, even it she didn't have dime. He regretted thai at na never had a chance to Know Pa The simple truth was that Laur Colton had run things social t Coltonville, and she • had never taken official notice at Paul Bak< who was an outsider anyway. He was'getting nowhere. Bake decided. He got up, went out the reception room and told b secretary that be was leaving fi the day. Maybe he could think nee he got behind Hhe wheel of 5 old coupe. It always cleared s head to drive aimlessly through ime back country road. He had Just left the building hen Pat Colton bobbed up out nowhere. She bad struck Baker cross the mouth before he was ware of her presence. "That's lor trying to make my ather out a murderer!" she said, er eyes flaming with anger. Then he hit Baker again. "And that's or not minding your own busies*!" She really packed • wallop, tunned, Baker could only stare t the girl. Then he turned sharply, he had heard Johnnie Mc- Vdams 1 laugh Johnnie came for- ard, grinning broadly. "Have to apologize for Pat's emper," he said. "H I'd known she .'as going to take your interrogation ol her father 90 seriously, ] •ouldrTt have told her about it,' Baker hadn't known Johnnie t was In the courtroom, "WeH, tbanks, paL* • » • LTE turned on hte heel ant L * walked to his car. Just as he •cached it a rather weak, thin voice catd: . "An uninhibited 1 type, my «l»- :er." Baker turned. Lawrence Coi ;on eyed him through thick-lenset glasses. His expression was tha of a youth who knows that he IB not well received and does no expect a friendly look. Most o Coltonville resented him, and h icnew It, He had a way of iookin at others as if they were labors tory specimens, and not too zoologically advanced specimens at tha 'I must say that I find TOUT ported questioning of my fat he quite uncalled for. The sugges Uon that he, might have secret maintained a live Gila , Monst£ contained an obvious and repui nant inference.

"Well, arent you going to ask e if 1 brought back a Gila Mtxi- er?" "Should I?" Baker found him- If resenting the way thi* un- >pular youth was leading the mversatioh, patronizing him and general making him fe«l like a mntry bumpkin, "Please do.™ "All right, did you bring back Gila Monster?" "Why do you persist in saying Gila Monster? 1 Don't you kno* iat Gila Monsters travel in pairs ke other reptiles?" Baker was rocked by the lougbt, "Do they?" he demanded. "Of course. They are usuallj aught in pairs, for where you fma ne such lizard you are very apt o find its mate." Baker reflected, then said: "Are ou suggesting that there's very kely another Gila Monster in thu icinity?" "1 certainly am.
