Shut up." Harding decided lo be appeased. "We'll start with you, Mr. Sill- well." Fred licked his lips. "All right. As near as I can remember George, Nona and I were left at the table when Miss Firth, Miss Cosgrove and Mrs. Jones went out to begin their day's work. We sa around the .table for a while, wishing we hnd some cigarels. Then Nona offered to clean up the outhouse we live in, so we went there George and I watched her work and when we came back Nona went to the garden to join Mis Firth. George and I sat around th' main room. Miss Cosgrove cam down from upstairs, went into th kitchen. She poked her hea through the doorway • few mln utes later and asked if we wantec coffee. We didn't. Then you cam in from outside and went to th tower room to change the dressin on. Miss Stark's leg. George-and sat on the veranda R while an then I went to the shack te tak a imp. I waj still asleep whe George woke me up with th news." Henry Harding smiled. **Than you for s very clear report. No Mr«, Jones." Miss Co-sgrove heard th« *o sound of Fred's exhalation. Sh him relax, knew the others x> were no longer in doubt as to e course they should follow. "I went right oxit to the sheep•Id," Mabel said. "1 took them up North Knob and stayed with icm unlil Miss Firth came to tell e what happened. I brought Ihe eep back with me and penned icm up again." Fred started the ball rolling. "T w her on the hill when I went take my rap." "I saw her too," Nona followed. Ueorge was with me. We spoke bout how her orange dress stood ul so clearly." "You saw her at intervals dur- ng the specified time? She was on Knob whenever you looked nut way?** "That's right." Siltwell elected inisclf spokesman. Harding si'id. "Now Miss Cosgrove. Did you go at once lo the storeroom after you eft the table?" "No." she admitted. "I went upstairs first to straighten up the room*. I knew Mrs. Warren wouldn't feel like il." Harding frowned- "How long did it take?" "I don't know. Mr. Sillwell and Mr. Bascombe were in the main room. They told you about my asking them if they wanted colTce, After that I went down to the storeroom and brought up what I thought we'd need. Miss Firth came from the garden and she and T had some coffee. Then we both went back to otir work and I saw Miss McGinre join Miss Firth. 1 Bea paused and looked at the two green-clad women sitting side by side. They both nodded the i r heads in confirmation. "After that I m ad* two more tr i ps to the kitchen. I was working in the storeroom when you came, as you know." "Very good. Very clear," Harding said. "You corroborate, Miss Flrlh." Agnes put a hand to her throat. "Oil yes. Yes. And 1 was worklM iti plain sight in the garden before 1 joined Miss Cosgrove," "Thai's right," Siltwell cul in. "I snw you bending over working. Then you .straightened up and 1 wnved, remember?" Agnes looked at the toe of nn« of her shoes. She nodded slowly. "I remember. You waved." "Was that before or aller Miss McGuire joined you?" Agnes hesitated, "It must have been lx?for«*,'* Nona said. "I guess it's clcnr where 1 was during the time. And I was with Agnes every minute after I met her unlil we heard of —of Lilly's death." At Harding's request she confirmed Sill well's story. • • » "T THINK you'll all agree," he A snid, "that * clear picture is emerging from the testimony. For myself, you will recall I was changing the dressing on Miss Stark's wound. She had tossed around during the night and pulled one of the stitches. H look some lime to repair the diunage and make her comfortable." "We snw you go in," Sill well said. "You were still there when 1 left.'* 'You didn't come out while I was sitting on the veranda," Elas- conibe testified. "Very well then. That accounts for everyone. Let us proceed lo the matter of the gun. How did it corn* Into the possession of that unfortunate woman? I personally searched the belongings of Mrs. Jones, Miss Firth, Mrs. Warren and Miss Cosgrove when they first eatnn ashore on Speare Island. You four later arrivals hnd no means, no ah—covering to conceal even so compact an automatic. Furthermore, it was not one of mine. Tt is a Mauser seven-sixty-ftve. Well worn." "A 32 in our measurements,** George mused. "That lets us out then. We didn't have anything smaller than * 38 on the Gullwing." "Are you positive?" Harding demanded. "I happen to know Mrs. Warren made several trips to Fisherman's Beach Ihe two day* before her death." - • (To B« Continued) FRECKLES AND HIS FRIENDS BY MERRILL BLOSSER "I hope you'll be more choosy thnn your fnth«r was (it your age—he'd fall for any girl who'd tell him she liked his curlv hair!" 1>RISCILLA*S Answer Tlwt One HY AI> ViiRMKKK I'M SURPRISED, PR15CIV.LA!
