R EMEMBERING the miner- able kitchen door, Jim ran around the main house, climbed up the steep bank to the back path. ; The door swung open. It was unlocked. Mrs. Gelstrap sal at the kitchen table her head resting on one fat arm stretched out on the porcelain surface. Jim touches her cheek gingerly, lound it warm. He could hear her heavy wheezy breathing and noticed now the reek of liquor Which filled the room. An empty bottle lay on its side on the floor and shards of a glass were scattered. , Jim shook the cook's fat shoulder. "Snap out of it! Come on. Wnkc up." She opened one small, bloodshot eye. "Whatsamatter?" She closed th» eye again. Jim left her, hurried through the butler's pantry, the dining room, into the large living room. A night-time gust of wind had fiuineled down the stone chimney and puflcd light wood ashes out into the room. The hearth and the near-by floor were covered evenly. Even the lid of the woodbox-window scat was tmoolhly covered with the fine Piitnt«tt4 br HEA hrrkt, IK. ash. Nowhere was there evidence of any disturbance. Jim found two unused bedrooms and Kit Carlson in the third. On the night table was a small round bottle with a plastic lop. Inside were many small, brightly colored capsules. Jim muttered under his breath, •One drunk and the other drugged." He pushed at her covered shoulder. She rolled toward him, and her soft snoring stopped. Her smile widened. The movement uncovered a shoulder and Jim noticed she considered a very sheer nightgown appropriate wear for the mountains. The skin of the shoulder was silky, resilient "Mrs. Carlson! Wake up." He interspersed shakes with the insistent words. She sat up, eyes still tightly shut. The coverlet slipped awaj and she held up her arms. "Petey! Petey!" Jim Dunn evaded her arms, shook her until her eyes opened. "You remember me," Jim said quickly. "Jim Dunn. You- hired me." CHE pulled the coverlet around " her, shook her head from side to side to clear away the fog of drugged sleep. "What are you doing here? Go away! Ill scream." Til go make some coffee," Dunn interrupted. "And you'd better get dressed. There's been —an accident." "Sue? It isn't Sue?" Apparently Jim's expression was blank enough to penerale, and she went on, "Not .Mrs. Gelstrap?" "No. Nothing's happened lo her," Jim said. "But you'd better get dressed." He left the bedroom. He picked up the phoii* He listened. He Jiggled the listened Kgain with no reward ,ut a faint humming. Quickly 'irn slammed down the phone, went to the kitchen. He found a percolator, filled its top part liberally with coffee and lit the gal flame in the range. "Put some water in it." Dunn turned around. Mrs. Gelstrap had hoisted herself erect n the chair. Her little eyes were open. Jim obeyed, set the percolator over the pale blue flame. Mrs. Gelstrap waved her arm back and forth over her head. She rubbed the inside of the elbow joint. "Asleep," she explained. "Pins and needles. 1 must have dropped ofl." She looked around, spotted the empty bottle. She used both arms to hoist herself to her feet, went to the cupboard and managed to avoid the pieces of glass on the way. She took a new bottle from a well-filled shelf, opened it expertly and had a three-gurgle drink from its neck. • • * CHE said, "Ahhh. Now maybe ^ you'd better tell me what you're doing here?" "Where's Miss Wisler?" Jim demanded. "Miss Wister? What are you talking about? I don't like riddles this time of day. I don't know any Miss Wister, I'm sure." There was a malicious sparkle in eyes. "There's a dead woman in th« >asement," Jim said bluntly. Mrs. Gelstrap had been in the process of reaching again for the jottle she had set on the table. The tiny hand at the end of the fat arm stopped with fingers still n a grasping curl. "Dead—not Kit! Tel) me It isn't Kit?" There was no doubting the sincerity of th« wail. "No," Jim »id. "Not your employer." Mrs. Gelslrap drew » long, shuddering breath which pulled her thick lips into her open mouth. She darted « side-wise, cunning look at .Jim, took a quick drink. "Not Mrs. Kit. But— where is she?" "Shc'« »sleep," Dunn Mia.
