Phone POplar 2-2302 SUSPECT By Hugh Lawreu«e Nefcgv XIX 'THE Carlson house had been started during the past period when everyone in Colorado who had a few hundred thousand dollars to throw away had started building castles in the mountains. With the old part of the house as a firm bulwark, newer additions straggled down toward the If.Uc ana' small boathouse beyond. The winding road led tp a carport before the newest part of the house.- Mrs Hilton came up while Jim and Nancy were getting out with their overnight bags. "Where's the other woman?' Mrs. Hilton demanded. "What other woman?" Jim asked. "The other woman I saw yesterday," Mrs. Hilton snapped. "Dressed in black, dressed—" She stopped abruptly and looked at Nancy again. She said, "That was you?" Jim put in, "Distances make things deceptive. Or is it that things are distorted through binoculars?" The complacency vanished. She said harshly, "Corne on then, ^ou women. I'll show you I rooms." Nancy, Mrs. Kit and Mrs. Gelstrap followed dutifully. Agnef and Jim remained with Philip Stoneman. "Mrs. Oswald will see you," Philip said. He paused Ions enough to look at his expensive wrist watch. "In exactly 26 minutes. In her studio." "We'll talk to you first then," Asnes said. "Come on, Mr. Dunn. You might as well listen. I want you to hear this." They went to a small sunroom, Philip said, "Sit down." He took on> of the straight chairs, Jim another. Agnes Argyle was confronted with a problem. She finally solved it, but she did not look at home in Ihe contour chair. Philip plugged in a gleaming silver percolator, left it and returned to his chair. "I've been thinking since you called, Agnes," he said. "I've talked to Mrs. Oswald too, of course. 1 guess 1 can really help you establish the fact that this was an accident. As far as all of us are concerned." Jim noticed the use of her first name, and apparent terms of intimacy between Stoneman and the sheriff. "We had a real party here last night," Philip explained. "The party didn't break up until the eariy hours, as the phrase has it. Almost daylight, in fact, before the carloads of. guests and the servants pulled out for Denver." "Go on," Agnes prodded. "It'd help if .you'd tell me about the time Angelica—:'icd." "Between fwe'and six," Agnes said promptly. * • • J IM felt his eyebrows going up. he thought that was a little too much cooperation between an officer of the law and the questionee. Philip nodded. "That makes it even easier. The party didn't break up until five. And of course, there were the usual last- minute delays, the 'one for the road.' Say 5:30 by the time everyone was off. Agnes, you know how long it'd take anyone to walk around to The Spires. So —I gueis that lets us all out." "Why walk?" Jim asked. Philip smiled broadly. "There's my churn," he said. "I wondered il the cat had your tongue, I Mid walk, bccauH that would have been the only way. You see, all the cars were gone, it of! rilled wiih Uiiink- guests in the care of the servants who could still see out of one eye. No cars here at all after 5:30, chum." 'We can check that," Agnes repeated. "But even so the round trip couldn't have been made by car. Not in the short time before breakfast.'* Jim must have showed his bewilderment, because Philip chuckled. "If you're around here long enough, chum, you'll find we have only one inflexible rule t the one and only rule, made up at the moment to meet the situation. Mrs. Oswald makes decrees and backs • them up by saying, 'It's always been my rule to do so and so.' Catch, chum? Breakfast at seven sharp is the present rule and has been al! this summer. So this morning of course could not be an exception. We breakfasted at seven. How well I know! It was up to me to get it, and I barely had time for a shower and a change of clothes before I had to start my culinary masterpiece. Shrimp chow meia and scrambled eggs." "How about the boat?" Dunn demanded. • • » pHILIP shook hU head. "The •*• boat wasn't used. I'll show you why I know. And, before you bring it up, I'll admit H isn't too (ar to swim It a person would keep close to that sheer clifl that seperates these two places, Maybe three or four blocks. But you just try it, chum. That water's ice, pure ice. Tht lake is deep and the water always cold. No, I don't think you can consider swimming seriously, chum." Philip then led Jim and Agnes outside, along the path to th« small boathouse. The smell of p»int and varnish had warned Jim what to expect, Neverthelesi h« touched • finger to various spote on the boat and the oan. The virnlsh wa» nearly dry, but still tacky. The paint on the oars was still wetter, left a red stain on his Anger. Dunn noticed a small smwr on one of the oars as it someone else had tested the riryness ol the paint.
