You have to have a key " Jim picked .at the binding chain, let the links fall bnck with a clatter. "We've come to open a place called The Spires, I understand ingress and egress to the place goes with the deed My boss bought the place. 1 can show you the deed." The smile broadened. "Sorry. 1 can't read. You own a place in here, or have reason to come in, you should have a key." "So I should," Jim admitted. "Funny how it could have jumped oft the wire like that." "Very funny Go awa« and don't bother me." Jim took a flashlight from his jacket pocket, turned the powerful beam overhead. It did not take long to locate the double wire? which led directly to the small cnbin. "All the modern conveniences, like phones. And how is my good friend, Toby Arpyle''" The snme smile stayed on the yr:;r; man's facfl. "I don't know wual you're talking about" He uscJ a lone of voice which made it perfectly clear he was lying. "You could save me trouble by unlocking the gale," Jim said mi 1 !y. For .1 moment the young man's 155* by H PntrfeuttJ I? MEA Strort, to. to shade his eyes so ne could see past the glare of the lights. He said, "Can't do it," and walked away. Jim got back in the jeep. "Home again?" Nancy asked. He opened the glove compartment, put his gun on his lap : Nope. Maybe Handsome thinks _o. But that chain didn't look too strong to me." He eased the station wagon forward in drive, pushed the bumper gently against the gate. The young man appeared again in the headlights. He had his mouth open to *ell. Jim gunned the motor. Tires spun and squealed. The whole gate bulged The chain snapped, whirled off through the trees. Both sections of the gate flung back with the suddenness of their release. Jim stopped when the jeep was still a few feet from the young guardian of the gate. "Too bad the chain fell off," Jim said. The smile was still on the man's face as he stepped quickly from the light, vanished in the shadows and darkness under the trees. A BOUT an eighth of a mile ^* from the gate, the road divided into three even narrower ways. A finger pointing signboard indicated the left-hand trail as leading to The Spires Dunn made the turn automatically, before he remembered and slammed on the brakes. "Let's take a look at that map again. Seems to me we should be going more in that right-hand direction." A combination of dash light and flash showed the turn clearly, the right-hand fork ss Jim harl remembered. He left his gun with Nancy as he got out and walked on ahead, using the flash- | far to go, only around the next blind curve. A cattle guard was under construction. At least rails were neatly piled near-by But at the present a four-foot ditch cut across the narrow road, a ditch partly filled with rushing water. Jim Dunn felt his anger begin to boil at the pit of his stomach. Even allowing for the crawl to make the blind curve, there would have been a severe jolt He walked slowly back to the jeep, flashing his light into the dense undergrowth along each side of the road. He found the warning sign, left it where it lay,.-walked more quickly. "You better take the gun," Nancy said. "Something?" "I think so. Some sort of sound back where the roads forked. Metal scraping on metal it sounded like to me." J IM started to back the station vAigon into the narrow opening which would permit a turn. He stopped again, got out and used the flash carefully. "No bets missed," he muttered. He pulled the strands of old-fashioned wire with their wicked inch- and-a-half barbs aside, got back in and turned quickly. imilc thinned still more. He tried I light sparingly, H« did n6t hive 'I have i Nancy said. smart husband," "What made you think there might be—something there?" "Only place to turn," Jim muttered. They reached the forks of the road. "Look, Jim. The sign. It's pointing in the right direction now." Jim did not slow up, "Probably the noise you heard. A heavy wrench on that metal standard to turn it. I'll bet we'd find the dirt looscrted around its base." "Not stopping to look?" "Hot me," Jim said firmly. "Maybe we're supposed to stop there. Or at least if we didn't have to stop before to fix a few flat tires." "Delaying tactics?" N a n c 7 asked. Jim thought ol the ditch again, hut with more of a chill than with anger. "Maybe."
