Mrs Gel•*- strap, Jim Dunn was informed that his client. Mrs. Kit. had taken to her bed with the beginning of a cold. "Brought on by crSll. don't you doubt It," Mra. Gelstrap said. "I Just do hope you'll be able to keep us warm tonight!" He returned to the cabin In disgust, went to bed too early to a night of restful nightmares in which an animated furnace pursued him through stacks of •untouchable wood. He woke up cold, just as the first sunlight touched the far side of the lake, moved across the water «.nd s«med to pull i a wispy tenuous mist with it. : Nancy had made a warm nest iol all the covers and murmured i sleepily as he got up. He had a [momentary and almost irrcslst- lible impulse to pull the bedding away and accuse her of cover ' snatching. Jim Dunn stretched and iyawned. He dressed. [ He started down the path Howard the main house, in the belief he might still find some embers in his nemesis, the furnace. He passed the turn In the path Ibefore he saw the car. It was » small but highly polished coupe, parked near the lake shore. He walked more qt ckly then, ,1 i, KtA Stniw be. rushing water which could bide so completely the sound of a mo- j tor He stopped suddenly, retraced the steps he had made in the car's direction. The door to the basement was open. It stood wide, and he remembered distinctly closing and locking it the njghl before. r PHE basement was a gloomy cavern Warm, pitch-scented air gushed past him to escape into the early morning chill. He reached for the nearest dropcord light, turned it on. A nagging familiarity about the small coupe churned in the back of his mind, was pushed aside in the stress of the moment. The wood he had piled so laboriously, heavy pitch chunks and odds and ends of log«, threw a dark shadow at the far end. He reached the next light The elevator! The last thing he had done the night before was to fill it with a Irberal supply of wood and crank it up into the recess in the floor above. But the supporting ropes showed now, and the recess was no longer closed by the under side of the platform. Jim moved more quickly, but with an added caution, and turned on the last light. The elevator platform held little wood now, carried a far different burden. The skirts were dirt stained, twisted around the lax figure. An outstretched arm hung limply, stained palm exposed. Plump legs sprawled out grotesquely, and the heels ol the polished, sensible shoes rested in a dark slam on the hard-packed dirt. Unwanted recollection came to Jim Dunn In that Instant A memory of Mlas Wlster proudly parking her small coupe In the lot near the office, walking the rug path to lake ilicUUon In Jim skirted the woodpile, moved to a point where he could see the face. He let out I long sigh both of disbelief and relief. Whoever owned the coupe outside, the dead woman was not Miss Wister. He bent over, found no puts* in the limp wrist, touched gently the battered face of Angelica Carlson Jones. No reason to doubt the cause of death. The matted mousy hair, the impossible indentation beginning at the bloodstained forehead, told of • crushed skull. Angelica's head and shoulders were partially propped against the wall while her body rested unnaturally on the pieces ol piich .«till on the elevator floor. • • • 'T'HE silence of the house pulled him away from further examination, sent him running up the steep stairway. The door at its head was locked. He pounded at it with the sides of nil clenched fists. He waited, listened. He pounded again and shouted. He put his e*t to th« woodeo panel. The silenct wa« 1 ctesolaU thing. He kicked at the door with » booted foot, drew back as far as possible and lunged against the door with his shoulder. It held firm, and Jim w»s almost catapulted down the steep stairs. There was no purchase for ha feet, no room for movement necessary for the sustained effort to break down the door. He clattered down the stairs, hurried throujh the basement, closed and locked the outer door behind him. Bright sunlight touched th« pound ol the trt- inglc. The breeze sent ripple patterns aero«i the lake's surface, bringing color change. Small wavelets -dded their shore- tplashing to th« background at rushing creek -water. The sun gleamed from polished chrome on the small, coupe, Jim moved quickly, wrenched open an unlocked door. The registration and Insurance' papers on tb» steering column told him hli memory had nol played him 'ftlM. It was Mist H'lslcr'l car. ! («• By J. R.
