MabeJ Jones smiled. "Right now 1 don't think he cares much for any woman. He did ask me V) stay on the island while he went for supplies." v "Are you going to?" "Maybe you've forgotten the four of why us came in the first place? I haven't. There's nothing on the mainland 1 want, nothing 1 can't have here. But whether I slay or nol depends some on you." "On me?*" Bea asked in surprise. "Yes. You've got something on your mind. You weren't playing with the funicular for the fun of it. You don't think Lilly Warren killed herself." "Do you think she did?" "I didn't know much about her," Mabel replied, "but 1 wouldn't have thought she'd be the kind to hurt herself." "She was drinking," Bea said thoughtfully, "and Harding had liool You go oui ol your way to hunt up trouble for yourselves." "Maybe. But you see what it means if it was done like that. 1 " "Ob 1 see, Anyone of us cou!d have done it. If we'd had the gun.** "Exactly." "You suspect anybody?" "Not for sure." Bea satd. "I don't have any proof. But there's one thing certain. We didn't have any trouble on S pea re Island until those four were shipwrecked. * And they knew Lilly from before." "We've had plenty trouble since then," Mabel agreed. "I'd thought some about asking Nona McGuire to stay on here with me if you others go back. I don't think she's happy. 1 guess, though, it wouldn't be so good to trust any of them. Why don't you stay with me?" "Not I,** Bea said firmly. 1 never thought I'd see the day, but school- teaching begins to look better and better to me. Why don't you ask Agnes Firth?" "I may do that," Mabel said. "But you still haven't answered my question about what you're going to do*" "I'm nol going to do anything/' Bea said "How could 1? I don't down tf you want. But you made the choice yourself you know." "1 didn't understand. 1 wanted to have tun." Henry Harding got up and walked out into th«j rain. Bea Cotgrove hesitated. From the corner of her eye she caught the gesture Mollie made to Fred Sill well when she thought she wax unobserved. Bea saw the slight nod Sillwell gave to show h* understood what the girl wanted. Miss Cosgrove stood up, stretched. "It's getting close , in here," she announced. "The air's suddenly bad. Guess I'll take a little walk too," JJENRY GOUGH HAR DING'S hair was already matted with rain when she reached his side. "I couldn't stay there. I had to leave. Why did she come back?" "She probably wanted som«- thing," Bea said. "Wanted something?" He exploded. "Wanted something? What could she expect to get from no* now? I was witling, eager, to give her so. many things. She could have had my name. If she wanted to be a queen, she could have ruled with me over Speare Island. But FRECKLES AND HIS FRIENDS BY MERRILL BLOSSER The Acl Change* COM. t»tt IV MIA MAVtCC. MC.

"A reason, good or not Why didn't it convince you?" "Why should she get in the funicular car to kill herself? Why wasn't there more blood?" "You think she was shot somewhere else and put in the car?" "I don't know. And I really don't know how much blood there should be. But—well in «U the books I have read about murders, there's always a point made about how much blood there is. So I thought about it and I figured she might have been shot in the tunnel under the main house, and her body sent down. Maybe whoever did it planned to weight her body with rocks and sink it in the cove. A mysterious disappearance." Mabel Jones smiled. "People ^•ith your reading and imagina- know anything for sure." TITOLLIE STARK visited the camp shortly before dark. Nona McGuire got up from her place beside the fire and made a low, mocking bow. "The queen! Queenie herself! And how is her royal highness by now?

Mabel Jones said, "Come sit why? Why did she have to do whal she did to meV "She's young. Impatient." "Why should being young make ler impatient? It's the other way around. I was kind, considerate.

But 1 was stunned. Shocked. So much disaster." He balled one huge fist and struck his other palm. "I do not see why. all this should happen to me! What have I done that I should be punished so?" She answered clearly, "Look into the past. Perhaps R is something in the past." She saw his body stiffen, knew he had heard. She barely made out his muttered command, "Leav* me now. 1 must think.
