Death iby a bullet Is not «n industrial Hazard, although It is I definite occupational hazard for thote engaged in war,. police wort or private inveitigation. I turned off tht w»t«r running >nto th« sink, and then knelt beside the still body once more. The bullet had entered h»r hurt, or cloM enough to MUM death, maybe not kuttntly, but within a f«w momenti. The mile on her lip* WM **» coraolition; m«yb* she tad been thinking of fomething pleasant wlwn the bullet cam*. I went to the telephont Fd •een from the front porch. On the stand ttttld* It WM I ttamped addrtiMd envelope. 1 MW my own handwriting and my nimt, Jamel T, Bennett, Blue Ridfe Hotel, (Stttl City. I tore It open, tooki out the printed autopay release form I had sent her. Alice . Osbom had ilgntd H. I nir«br «IT« mjf.ll *M •»il»«li«td eoncM to- a aoat merl»m »»lnatl«i i t« l»« made upon tha body of yHANK O OSBOrtrT. who waa my HUSBAND, «nil 1 a«r«« to at>l<tt or int regulation! of th« Iniluiirlal Wtlfari Co niuir ommlaatM and 10 Mount th« raault *t velope, placed H in my inside coat pocket, picked up the phone and asked a lazy-voiced operator to ring Sheriff Abner Cornwallis in Beech Tree. I located him at the Winchester Inn. The, female who answered I guessed to be Lucy Dorn. .1 said, "Is Sheriff Cornwallis there?" "Oh, it's Mr. Bennett—I recogr nized your voice. Can I watch the autopsy?" "I don't know," I snapped. "Call (he sheriff." "You don't need to bite my head off. Hang on." I hung on. Presently. a gruff voice said impatiently. "Yes. yes, what is it?" "This Is Bennett, Sheriff. I met you in the bar there yesterday afternoon." "On, yes." •1 want to report a shooting, Sheriff." I told him. "I called your office and your deputy told "Cent H wait?" be cut m peevishly. "This fc my lunch hour, and I'm still on my first nooner, and — shooting, did you sey?" .. "Yes, sir. Somebody shot Mrs. Osborn." "Alice? /rank's widow?" 'That's fight, I just found her. She's dead. I'm at her place," 1 WENT back into the living room and sat at the telephone stand. Idly I opened a drawer. It was filled with paid bills and a -few letters In torn-open envelopes. I began to reed neat handwriting In blue .nk: "Deer Sister ..." ..•••. I'noted the return address on the envelope, Mrs. Louis Woodruff, Fort Wayne, Ind. and as I replaced the letter In the drawer I thought »dly th«I AIM* would never see her sister again. In • comer at the drawer was e little bundle el totteh .heU together with I Itlbbat bMtV A printed return address in the corner of the top letter caught my eye—R. C. Jarrett, M. D. I am naturally curious, even snoopy, a sort of necessary occupational disease. I opened the envelope and read penciled words on a printed letterhead: Darling: Why do you treat m« as you do? You know 1 love you, have always loved you, long before you married Frank. Please call me tonight after office houn. 1 can't so on like This and must Bee you, Dick. I picked up the little bundle of letters, thinking that they were all from Dr. Jarrett. But I was wrong; the next one also bore a printed return address: 'The Tweed Funeral Home, Mortician Service, On the Square. Beech Tree. I opened this. My Dearest Alica: it waa wonderful being wltW you last , Wednesday — I have lived in' the clouds ever since! But, darling, why can't we b« married now? You have waited six months and I'D) sure Frank would want you to b« happy. I w!l! call you on Sunday. All my love, always. Wilbur. I didn't read any-more of the letters, but I thumbed through them. All were either from Wilbur Tweed or Dr. Jarrett, about fifty-fifty. Two grown men writing like a couple of sophomores to a mature and lovely widow. But even as I jewed, I felt a small sympathy for them. * * * I WENT out to the front porch. I looked up and down the^ highway. I heard the sound of i car, or maybe more than one. The first braked, swung Into the drive, scattering stones, end rocked to a stop. Dr. Jarrett leaped out a black bag m his hmd.; TV "In the kitchen," I said gently. Behind the wheel of the second car was a young man In a gray blouse, black tie ,and e wide- brimmed fray felt hat. Sheriff Abner Cornwall!* was beside Mm. They got out end walked toward me, the young deputy hitching at * gun belt and swaggering a little. A cigar wae' clamped between the fheruTs yellow teeth. "Deed, huh?" be sekl. chewing the cigar, watching me with hat little bloodshot eyes, <t» ••* CeMaMtsV v THE REAL MtCOyf By BILL WALKER WHILE THrS GAL'S LEAPNtN'SHE'S PEPTECTEDBVn"- »-^ttVHrr W.L.WALKER INSURANCE AGENCY Glenco Bldg.
