He sat down beside Bea and stared gloomily at the sheep^ "Silly things." he commented. "They remind me of people." "What does Harding want?" "Harding? Who said anything about Harding? I was talking about my boss. Mr. Fred Sillwell.' "What's the matter with you today?" Bascombe grinned sourly."Nothing like a nice suicide to cheer people up. Not." he added hastily, "that I have any personal feeling about her death." "Nothing personal? But there's something personal bothering you, I have it Your little deal with Sillwell about the whiskey ha backfired?" George glanced at her, averted his eyes quickly. "No. That's the one bright spot. Little George Bascombe at his best. No. Fred's still buying. What he gets from Harding only .makes him thirsty." "He's young for a confirmed alcoholic." "Fred never was young. Fred is impolite when he's kepi waiting It may not matter to you but H does to me." Bea got up, started the sheep down the trail. "I don't see why you're so afraid of Sillwell." "No, you don't do you?" George grunted. "Say. have you misse< any sheep lately?" scions, but Dyer, 3S, is he suffered only bruises. an artist.

"She tell anyone else?" "I don't know." George hesitated, recovered quickly. "The next day the whiskey was still there." She knew what he had started to say. Lilly hadn't had much time to tell anyone else. "You remember the day we hid the whiskey?" George asked abruptly. "Did you smell anything tunny then?" "No. Why?" "The cave smells now. Maybe it's because of the blood." Bea realized he had reached the true hasis for his unhappy (rame of mind. "What blood?" "Oh there was some sheep woo there too. And blood splattered on the whiskey cases." "Sheep blood? Or Lilly Warren's?" George Bascombe pushed fing' ers under the brim of hie borrowet h;il, tilted it back on his heac "How could she have killed her self there and been found in the car?"

"You come on in," he snapped. "Beat It, George." Bascombe grinned meaningly at ea Cosgrove as she went inside. The single room, to spite of ona McGuire's efforts, was dirty. The two unmade cots showed .ousled covers stained with streaks of grease and dust. Everywhere was a litter of salvage from the ~ullwing, for the most part cameras and photographic equipment to be overhauled. , Fred Sillwell dug around under one of the cots and produced a half-filled bottle. "Sit down." he suggested. "I'm glad you're not a drinker. The stuff's too scarce these days." Bea sat down on "one cot. Sill- well looked at her a moment, smiled, sat down beside her.

"But you never can tell until you try. Some women do." "I'm sure you're very hot stuff," Bea said. She got up. "Hold it," Sillwell ordered. "We'll leave out that angle.
