Was he trying to tell her something? Trying to reassure her but m such a way that the others would not understand? She felt pulses quicken al over her body. i Rush laughed then, a bit too heartily. "After Ann's had a good res she'll realize how mistaken she's been." He put his arm about her shoulders; it was all she could do not to draw away. "I'm not say ing, you understand, that ther isn't some truth in what she says. His voice was smooth as velvet "It's her interpretation 1 don' agree with." "Of course," Enos said, alst smoothly, "and under strain facts have a way of looking differen Believe me, I know." VOU know . . ."

His deference to the sheriff was both flat- ering and disarming. And any wild hope Atm rnay have had in Sam Blanding died m abrupt death when the sheriff iaid, "Why, I can't see where It would hurt any." And then he said gently. "Provided, of course, ran take good care of tile little ady. Wouldn't want any accidents to happen to her." His voice underlined the word accident, oh. very light.y, and Ann realized the sheriff had put no credence In her story. None at all. Sherill Blanding looked acutely uncomfortable for a minute after iiis remark and so he added, iocu- larly, "Not that I think—" But that was no good either, so he bega.i again, his face red—"They say these things have a way of coming in threes, you know."

Everyone looked al her in such astonishment that the bright color leaped to her face and she said defensively, "Well, wouldn't It sort of clear the air?' If you put yourself in Ann's place it's easy to see why she's upset; I would be, I know, if the same things had happened to me. It seems to me .
