V FRANK OSBORN answered the phone in a voice that could be either middle-aged or young, just a soil lemale voice, neither husky nor shrill, a voice saying, "Hello," quietly, waiting with mild anticipation to learn who was on the line. "Mrs. Osborn?" "Yes." • "I'm sorry to bother you at this hour, but—" "Oh. you're not bothering me. I'm waiting for some friends to call for me." "Yes. You see, Mrs. Osborn—" "If you're the man about the house insurance I've decided to renew again for another three years. If you will mail me a statement I'll send you a check." "My name is Bennett and I'm with the Industrial Welfare Commission." She said something, but I went ' on determinedly. "We'd like your permission to do •n autopsy on the body of your husband." For maybe 20 seconds there was silence on the wire. Then she said faintly, "Autopsy? On Frank? Why?" "The commission Jeels It'a necessary, in fairness to all concerned, to establish the cause'of death. 1 'But the doctor said Frank died ot a heart attack.' I said carefully "Mrs. Jsborn, it will be merely a medical examination, a routine matter, conducted with the utmost respect. The commlMlon feels that there li a reasonable cause for doubt, and—" "I don't understand, Mr. Bap- nett" Mrs. Osborn's voice was nice, but she had an annoying habit of interrupting. "You see, II we establish that your husband's death resulted from the industrial disease from which he suffered for three years, and , not from the heart condition as" stated on the death certificate, you will be entitled to (he widow's indemnity of $10,000. However, in all probability the cause of death as stated is correct- But the state wishes to clear the records and—" "1—I really don't know what to say. My husband left me fairly well provided for, but one can always make-use of money, and I don't think Frank would mind. Do you think he would mind, Mr. Bennett?" "I'm sure he wouldn't," 1 said quickly, "not if he knew H might benefit you. All we ask i« that you sign a release certifying that we have your permission to do it" I paused »nd thought fast, like any salesman trying to close a deaL "I'll bring it out right now, if it is convenient." "No, I'm »fraid not Neighbors from down the road were kind _ jough to ask me to go with them to a bingo party at the church at Indian Landing. Could you come out tomorrow?" I HESITATED. Saturday was not a working day »nd I'd planned on sleeping lite, «nd then trying for some trout in cn« of the cold little hill streams north of Steel City. "How will It be if I mailed you the form tonight? You .can sign it and send it back to me." "Well," she said slowly, "I guess that will b* all right." "It'i quite nil right. By th« way, the file on your husband states thai Dr. Richard Jarrett attended him. Ii he your regular a friend than a physician. He and Frank knew each other in college." 'Then you feel that he was correct in his diagnosis of the cause of your husband's death?" She hesitated for just a second- Then she said quietly, "Why do you ask that?" "Just routine," I said smoothly. "The autopsy will definitely settle it. Mr. Tweed in Beech Tre« las kindly consented to let 116 use his facilities." "Willjur?" She sounded surprised. • 'Yes. I understand he was at your home the night your husband died?" * • • "THAT'S right, Mr. Bennett I'd planned a sort of little party, after a Christmas play presented the children at the school. I— [ wanted to do something for Frank. He'd been rather despondent and 1 thought it might cheer him up to get out and mix with people. And he did enjoy the evening, and seemed happy. phyi "Oh. And then. Her voice broke. "You have my sympathy, Mrs. Osborn," 1 said. "It must bavt been a tragic shock to you." "Yes, even though Dr. Dick warned me that It might happen any time." Her voice was steady now. "When do you plan to do this—this autopsy?" "Next week some time—I dont know just what day." "To be quite frank," she said, 'right after my husband died 1 asked Dr. Dick about a—an examination to make certain of the cause of death, but he assured me that it wasn't necessary He said there waa no doubt that Frank had died of a heart attack, that he would stake hit professional reputation upon It" I said, "Did you have anp particular reason? I mean for asking about a post-mortem examination?" "No, not really, 1 guess. It wai Just that he died so—so suddenly. He waa bolide me one moment, laughing and talking with the others, and then he was gon«. No—no" warning at all.
