"Bullet, small cali- x ber. in the heart region Got het as she stood oy the Kitchen sink Bullet went through the screen first Looks like it was from the wood? on the hill back of the barn." The sheriff nodded grimly ano turned to tho young man. "Horace, go back there and look fot (cartridge cases,, anything. If you see any kids with rifles, nab em and brinj^'em here." The young man strode a^vay. » determined expression on his' face. The sheriff went up the step* to the door. "Come on. This might be rough. Doc was sweet on Alice." . "He wasn't the only one," I said. , . L He shot me a keen sidelong g 1 a a c. t. "M e » n i n f Wilbur Tweed?" He eyed me' carefully a moment, chewing hit clgat. Then he said, "You know quite a lot—-for a stranger in town." I followed him across the silent living room to the kitchen. Dr. Jarrett. was on his knees beside the body of Alice Osborn. His hands were over his face. • The sheriff cleared his throat and said apologetically, "I had to call you, Doc, seeing as you're the coroner...." There was no answer. The sheriff sighed, chewtd hU cigar nervously, and gazed down at the body of Alice Osborn. I looked out the screen above thi ilnk. I saw the young deputy «m«rfe from the woods and come down the slope behind the tarn, walk- | ing fast. The sheriff said, "Pretty, wasn't she?" "Yes." 1 said. "Not pretty-pretty." he said. "Nice oretty. A—a fine woman. It's a shame." Through the screen 1 saw the young deputy approach the back porch His face was red with exertion and .he appeared to be wanting He came into the kitchen and stopped when he saw the oody on the floor. "Well. Horace?" the sheriff said heavily. t • • HORACE glanced at the screen above the sink, and then faced the screen door "There's a target up there, a bull's eye target, nailed to a tree. It's drawn with black crayon on cardboard." He paused and swallowed. "Looks like some*" kids been shooting target, with a .22 probably. They've scooted now, of course, but the target's in line with the house and they must have missed and—" "Yes." the sheriff said, his lean old face grim. "She was standing by the window, peeling them potatoes and — did you bring 'the target?" The deputy looked hurt. "No, sir. I figured you'd want to see it first, just like it was." "Good boy," the sheriff said approvingly. "Go call Wilbur Tweed and tell him to come out and getrr-no, don't. I'll call him myself. You io in and keep an eyt on Doc." "Yen, Abner." The deputy moved past, glancing at me, and entered the living room. I thought of the note Wilbur had written Alice Osborn. 1 couldn't picture them as married, but I remembered that when I'd asked Wilbur if h« were married he had laid, "Not yet," Maybe he and Alice had something In common not apparent to me, but It msd to me that if I'd been Aliot, with a choice between WU- bur and Dr. Jarrett, I would have picked the doctor. He was not only younger and more handsome than Wilbur, but obviously had a more favorable economic future. The sheriff gazed at me a moment, his little reddish eyes glinting beneath the heavy brows, and then he said quietly. "Do you suggest Wilbur?" I shrugged. "He may as well face it. Dr. Jarrett faqed it, didn't he? And besides, Wilbur needs the money." « • • HIS mouth widened. I suppose i he meant it for a grin "Everybody knows Wilbur is in finan- i cial trouble," he said. "In facC I think that's why he wanted to marry Alice—to get his hands on her money. But it's only five | bucks for an ambulance trip— 'seven-fifty, maybe, out here. The county commissioners got to ap- i prove it first." He gazed at the body of Alice Osborn. "I never' heard she had any kin, and she'll be a county case—at least until the estate is probated." "She's got a sister IB Fort Wayne," 1 said, and for some sudden fantastic reason I almost added, And she's got me. Hie brows went up and h« hitched at Ms belt "How do yon know M much about her?" "We talked on the phone last night. I work for the Industrial Welfare Commission." "Mind telling me about it?" h« asked mildly. , "Later. You'd better call Wil-' bur—unless you want the lab men to move it first." "Lab men?" the sheriff said with a trace of bitterness. "We don't have a lab. We don't even have a fingerprinting outfit. One* In a while we get help from th« Steel City force, but not often. I'm the only law in this county. We don't need flash bulbs and fingerprint powder for Alice. It's open and shut She wu peeling potatoes by the kitchen window. Kids shooting target in the woods up the hill. On* of the slugs hit Allot." "One almost hit me," I said, and told him about the bullet striking the porch betide my hod. <T« Be CmtbiMel) Oysters are good to eat any time called ''R" months.
