TeL POplar 3-8951 Means Less Work . . . More Income Per Acre "The Very Best Will Cost You Less." SUSPECT By Hugh Lawrence Nelson THE STORY: Private Detective .Jim Dunn has been retained by Mr*. Kit Cnrlson "to 5?et «omethInK" on her mothcr-In- lnw. It dtTcJops that there wns a sudden dentb at Mr«. Cnrlson'« home o» the West Const and ; that .Mr«. Carlson i* nuspected by the fnmlly of murder. Donn and T^nncy. hia wife, are to pone -»» corctnker.t on the Cnrlson summer estate in the Colorado Rockfen. * » * III TIM stopped in the patch of •*-. light before the Creek Junction 'Hotel and Bar, one of the lour buildings in the side-road town. "Won't be a minute, Nancy." He pushed open the bar's door, stepped into an atmosphere lit by the red neon of the huge jukebox. . "Looking for Toby Argyle,' 7 Jim told the bartender. The baldheaded, squat man, : whose wrinkles appeared to be doing their best to hide seven warts, said, "I'm Toby. What do you want?" t. Dunn wondered if the facial contortions were supposed to be , a smile. "Keys to a place called The Spires. I understand it's out of town a couple miles." "What do you want them keys for?" "Do some work on the place before tomorrow." Jim hoped he was striking a right note. Argyle appeared more genial. "Guess there's plenty to be done still. The old lady finally take it over from the boy?" "You talking about Mrs. Oswald Carlson?" "Sure. Mrs. Oswald, we call her around here. The" old lady. She's a 'card." "I'm glad to hear it," Jim said. "However, I'm not working for her." The cordiality dropped away from the folds of Argyle's face. "No?" Ht made another effort. Oitfcftvtaf fcf NEA SWIM* tab "The younger one then? Mrs. Hilton, though you don't look like her type to me." Dunn took the order from the Denver real estate company from his pocket, put it on the bar. "Maybe this'll help." Toby Argyle's eyes moved quickly down the typewritten page. They returned to the top line and began a slower reading. He dropped the paper at last, pushed it back toward Jim. "Mrs. Oswald ain't going to like this." "Look, Mr. Argyle," Jim said. "All I know is I was hired to come up and get this place ready for my boss who'll arrive tomorrow." Toby Argyle nodded slowly. "Shouldn't think a city fellow like • you'd take such a job though. Lonely place—The Spires." "A job's a job," Jim said. "Sure. But there're lots of jobs. Hope you get paid plenty for coming up here." Jim Dunn thought be knew what was coming and played along. li You bet. These California people don't know the value of money." . "California—eh? See from the paper her name's Mrs. Gelstrap. Funny sort of name, but I 3f!i*?5 that cuts no ice. Now look son. Mostly local people work for the Carlsons." Jim hesitated, then decided there was no particular point in pushing Argyle into a definite offer for desertion. "I can always leave if I don't like it," h« said lightly. "Meantime, the r«t of the staff outside'll b* getting tired waiting. Could I fiavt the keys?" More outside, huh? All right, young man. Maybe you know what you're doing. I'll get the keys out of the safe." Toby Argyl* came back at La»t [with a bunch of keys on a length LU wire. He twisted the ends of the wire more securely, tossed the keys on the bar "There vou are, young fellow Sure you and the others won't spend the nigh't? Could get an early start in the morning." "Thanks, but I guess I'd better obey orders." * * * ITE found the side road,. cut the jeep's wheels to the left, crossed the main highway and started down a steep incline. A well-made bridge spanned a rushing creek at the bottom and the ascent was equally steep, with the road narrowing. It wound around huge boulders the size of five-room houses. He slammed on the brakes as he rounded a sharp turn: The headlights of the - jeep stopped a scant three feet from a high irea gate, whose ponderous double doors blocked the road. Dunn got out, walked closer to read the rather faded sign, "No admittance without key." *And just to leave no doubt as to tht seriousness of the prohibition, there were added smaller word*. "Authority of The Carlson Estate." A slim chain was looped around the two center bars of the gate section* and fastened with a padlock. • * * T"\UNN fingered through the keys Toby Argyle had given him. None of them bore the same brand Game as that on the padlock. Just to be certain, however, he tried every on* that would go in at all. None worked. He looked at the wire which held tht keys together, remembered Toby Argyle's twisting together of the ends. He whistled softly through his teeth, got a firm grip on each section of the gate and managed a really worthwhile rattle. Th« chain tightened and loosened, clattered dismally in tht ftill night air, ; The light in the cabin went out. "Hey!" Jim calltd. "Hello tht house!" Hit voice wundftd unnatural.
