Walnut — Blytheville J IM DUNN kicked down whai stumps ho could find, loaded the jeep with dead and half rotted logs whose chief virtue was that they gave the appear- •ance of wood. One branch road led down to rthe Carlson Castle, but Jim did mot travel far along it. But he ;did get an excellent bird's-eye I view of the huge place, with its "swimming pool nestling back of 'a slight curve of the huge separating cliff, Lion's Head. Jim estimated it was a good three miles by twisting road be- 'tween the two places even 'though it was only a few hundred yards by water. Certainly the sheer drop of the base of Lion's Head seemed to preclude any path along the shore. On his return lo The Spires, he found that Toby Argyle had delivered a load of pitch. Heavy, sticky chunks which were fragrant even in the pile by the basement door. He found, too, that Nancy was having an audience with Kit Carlson. She was on the porch, no longer wearing her veil, while Nancy, in hor "dark and dowdy" outfit, stood on the lowest step. "Yes, mom," Nancy said, as Jim began to loss pieces of wood from the jeep. "Thank you for telling me about the rouge. Thank you, I'm sure." She would not meet Jim's eyes as she hurried away, Announcing Election November 2 for Aldermon-3rd Ward Tour support Is needed for » progressive city government Jimmy (J. 0.)

"I was quite mistaken about your nice little wile," she said. "I am pleased, because I take it as a sign of our good judgment. In getting the correct person for the job at hand. And I am glad lo see you enter into the spirit of the thing. Pretending to gather wood." Dunn looked at the pile of stuff in the jeep. He could hardly call it wood, but he wouldn't have called the labor necessary for its gathering pretense either. He said slowly, "I think you'd better tell me what you're afraid of." "You're right, I suppose. But Ihis doesn't seem the place, to talk. I believe someone at the other house is watching us through binoculars. And — Mr. Dunn! There is someone coming. 3o something about it." The front door slammed behind her. * * • rjUNN looked around, had to walk beyond the corner of the louse before he saw anyone, before he saw the figure walking along the boulder-strewn side of he creek which spilled from the ho e in the clilt. He knew he was seen, but he also was completely disregarded, as the woman knelt on the crcekbank. He stood above her, said, You're trespassing, you know." She turned her head, glared at him from small jet-black eyes which were heavily outlined by wrinkles. He saw she was very old, had attained the age reached by so many Colorado women where hey appear indestructible. She lissed at him, "Quiet, fool!" Dunn saw her arms were Immersed deeply in the icy water. The expression on her face hanged from malevolence toward Jim to the thrill and ex- itcmcnt of the chase. She moved (suddenly and a 12-inch trout (flopped on the grass of the sloping bank. "There now," she said. She go,', stiffly to her feet, picked up the trout and did something which immediately stilled its frantic struggle. Her arms were bright purple with the cold of the water, and the knobs of her knuckles looked painful. "Heard it could |be done," she gloated. "And I did it. You see, this way when you get a trout it's not damaged." "It's dead enough," Jim said. "What do you want?" she demanded. "I work here. You're trespassing, you know." "Hah. .You going to make something of it?" "I suppose," Jim said thoughtfully, "I could turn you over my knee and give you a spanking." She glared at him a moment and then her mouth opened to emit a cackle. Her old-fashioned false .teeth slipped and moved with the sound. She said, "You and who else?" "Where do you live?" Jim asked. She waved the limp trout toward the other side of the lake. "What are you going to do with the trout now you have it?" "Stuff it!" she snapped. * • • AT first, Jirn thought the werdu • were a suggestion or a command. He had a second thought and asked, "You're a taxidermist?" She was no longer looking at him, but over his shoulder. "Ready now, Philip," she said. Jim turned around. The smiling man, Philip, completely outfitted in a chauffeur's uniform and shiny boots stood a few paces away. Beyond, looking Immense on the narrow road, a limousine sat gleaming in the sunlight. Philip looked at Jim as if he were one of the things Dunn had found earlier under rotten logs. "Is this person annoying you, Mrs. Oswald?" She handed Philip the limp fish. "How could he?" she wanted to know *c she wai htlpod into the car. (t* Bt C*iUaue4) General Hardware and Appliance Co. 109 W.
