"How do you know Ames \Varljurton hadn'l carried his watch for more than a month?" he asked. "Are you making this up?" "No," I said. "Cravalh and I learned Amos wanted lo know Die time a few minutes after he discovered the bonds missing. A guy with a wonderful Swiss watch could have looked at il." Dumont waved a hand. "Perhaps he'd forgotten to wear ! t" "We checked up. He left his watch for repairs with a jeweler named Ensler who had piled UD work ahead. Ames got it back •tout two hours before he look CS: train for Windover You couldn't have seen it in Ihe oflice Jf —" I couldn't resisl this "—you had kept your mouth shut on those rocks, we'd never have known or sent a guy lo question jewelers " Cravath looked at the ground Sladen kept the light on Dumom "The attempt on Mrs. Dumonl wasn't premeditated," I went on "One rainy day you followed Mr Cravath and Mrs. Wheeler and overheard or saw something that must have been a blow to your ego. Cravath was ahead of you there, too." It wasn't very delicate and It aroused Cravath from his trance "Oh, Orth ..." I'd been hired for this and I was going through wilh il. So I went on. "Later you saw Mrs Dumont wobbling down this path She was another big stumbling blocs in your way. Somelhing must have exploded in your brain so you conked her from behind and ran her toward the clilTs." "And why didn't I heave her over?" Dtimoru spat the words "An airplane chose thai moment to fly over," Cravalh said. "I remember hearing it when 1 was with Eve. You couldn't be sure what might be seen from the plane." I nodded. "When yon c.-ime to your senses you realized that this murder wasn't going to be clever enough, and you didn't go back to finish the job — knowing Dolly wouldn't know who hit her." ALL during this, Dumont had been tensing, gathering his strong compact body. 1 Ihonght he was selling ready to spring at nie—and I was ready. He footed me. lie whirled suddenly on Dave Sladen. "Keep that light out ot my eyes." His voice held only irrilahilily. He might have been the boss, bawling out an underling al Cravath & Company. Startled. Dave lat the torch down. Dumont made a half-pivot, right on his toes. Dumont must have been a filling sub for All- American Halfback Marney Cravath. He completed the pivot in an eyewink, with the three of us momentarily off guard; He pin- wheeled past Cravalh. I leveled the gun. Cravath moved like lightning, the first movement he'd made since the beginning of that slark, one-sided conversation. He knocked my arm aside. "I.et him go!" he rasped hoarsely. Dumonl went, a dark streak. He never even broke slricle at the chains — just took them like a hurdler. His feet seemed scarcely to touch the lillle fatal palch of ground onlo which Ames Worbur- ton had gone to his dealh. There was no hesitation; no fearful yell came back from the void beyond. Jack Dumont's nerve held lo the end. I brought my rented car around to the front ol the house eaily the next morning. Then I carried my bags down, without bothering Manila. I admit to feeling pretty sore. But after lhat trick I had played on Cravolh. 1 had it coming. Of course, I had had a job to do. But the job had not been pleasant and now my association with the Cra- vaths—Marston and his niece Sally—had ended. I did not expecl lo see either of them again. The police Investigation had been compleled. The whole story had been told. There would be notoriety, which Cravath had sought lo avoid, but it would soon pass. A FTER that terrible ending, Marston Cravath had not said one word to me He had walked, head dov,-n and shoulders sagging, back to the house I'd deceived .lim into setting B snare for someone he had trusted and loved, even though his trust and love had been misplaced. But he had assumed the roie of betrayer and for putting him In that position he could not forgive me. even though we had oeen dealing with murder. On my way down wilh my bags I met Dave Sladen. "1 forgot to lhank you last night for being willing lo play ball." I told him. "It couldn't have been vciy pleas.int, knowing thai your boss thought you were a murderer. I'd told him you were and he was expecting you to heave that ball." Dave shrugged. "I've had to do unpleasant things all my life. Hut ! will say this: I detesled Wor- burton and I can't say much tor some olliers around here, but 1 never wanled to see any of them murdered. If I helped you get that half-human rlevil. I'm glad of it" (To Be Concluded) Television- Tonite, Tomorrow WMCT, Memphis.
