I shut off the motor and gol out as Lucy Dorn stopped my car behind me. She came and stood beside me, holding her coat close around her in the chill wind. "He's dead to the world," I said in a low voice. "I'll have to carry him." "He's too heavy," she protested "We'll see." I started around the car, but a voice stopped me. "Wilbur," the voice said sharply. "Is that you?" A dark shadow stood just m- «ide the screen door silhouetted .gainst dim light from inside tht house. "Miss Tweed?" I «sked •oflly. .,„ "Yes." Met voice was still sharp. "What's the matter? Where's Wilbur?" "Wilbur's In the car," 1 .aid. "He—h* don't feel well." "What's the matter with him?" As I hesitated, Lucy said, "Nellie, you may as well know. We found him «t the Buckeye Club >nd—" "So that's where he's been tine* he brought her body here." There w« » hard edge to her voice. "1 don't know," 1 said. "We lound him there." She pwwed at me. "I cunt n- MU Taut nun*.* "BennetV terday." "Oh. yes.' ihi' "1'kit I saM.

I said, "Don't blame him too much. He's had a bad shock." I moved past her and took hold of Wilbur's arm. "If you'll tell me where to put him " "Don't touch Mm," she said sharply. "I'll handle him." dropped my hand and said helplessly, "I'll be glad to help." "I'll manage. Thank you for bringing him home." Lucy Dom said, "Nellie, are you sur* you don't want some help?" !Xet him wallow in his drunkenness," Nellie Tweed said bitterly. "He left me alone today to take care of everything," She looked, at her brother, and suddenly her expression softened a little. She placed a hand on Wilbur's forehead and for a moment her thin face held a tenderness. * • * • I DROVE around the square and parked in the lot behind the Winchester Inn. We entered by * back door and I followed Lucy Dorn through a big bright kitchen where two women In white uniforms were working beside I dishwashing machine. A third woman was frying hamburgers at a big stove. They all smiled at Lucy and she said cheerfully, "HI glrii," and went through •winging doon, down a short hallway and entered the lobby. The elderly gray-haired lady I'd wen at the d«a the day b«fori*ai there now totalling what looked like .food check*. 'HI'Mom," |.Ucy said . fleftneu. H« works lor ttttl Welfare Commission, tie's something like a—a detective." Mrs. Dorn smiled. "That should intrigue you, dear." She nodded at me. "Pleased to meet you, Mr. Bennett. Didn't I see you in the bar yesterday afternoon talking to Abner Cornwallis?" "Yes. Ma'am," 1 said, removing my hat. 'We're going up to the apartment,"_Lucy told her mother. "I! you need me, just buzz." "I won't need you. It's been a quiet evening. Run along—oh, by the way, Dr. Dick was asking for you." Lucy's eyes narrowed a bit, 'What did he want?" "He didn't say, dear." "If he comes back, tell him I'm out." She turned abruptly and walked away. LUCY DORN was waiting impatiently in the hall at the foot of the stairs. Through the arch- ay I saw that the bar wis doing a fairly brisk business. At» table near the eitrance Sheriff Abner Cornwall!* sat with two other len. I leaned in the archway. "Hello, Sheriff. How'i Rosemary?" "Fine," he said. "She settled right down and madt herself to home. I gave her a can of salmon and made a bed tor her in th* office. She already caught two mice." I moved down the hall to Lucy. "I thought you'd never come," she complained. "I'm afraid I'll run into Dick, and I don't want to see him." She turned and went quickly up the carpeted stairs I followed her to the second floor and down a pleasant lighted hall to a door at the fur end. She unlocked the door, stepped inside.and flicked a light switch. "Come In," she said. "This is home for Mom and me." I moved into a big room with wide windows overlooking the square. The ceiling wai high, the woodwork white, the furnishings bright and tasteful On the other side of the room ' through an open door I saw t . darkened kitchen where reflected light gleamed on • refrigerator "Pi is IS and « porcelain sink.
