"All right," Sherifl Agnes said. "What's this little ruckus about?" "She—she tried to scald Jim," Miss Wister panted. "I did not! How was I to know he was down there?" Mrs. Gelstrap whined and hiccupod. "I heard noises in the basement and scratchings inside the woodbox I thought maybe someone was trying to get in that way. Trying to get in and hurt Mrs. Kit. That's what 1 thought." Miss Wisler laughed insultingly. Mrs. Gelsirap contented herself with a glare. Jim Dunn said, "I was looking around, standing on the platform of the elevator The dooi of the woodbox opened and a lot of boiling water came down over me." Jim stopped talking long enough to realize he was not burned His face tingled a little, but that was all. "Well, a lot of hot water," he amended. "I didn't know what she .was going to do," Miss Wister went on. "All at once, she ran out into the i;,tc :n. Mine ba-.'li carrying * pail at water from the <tov«. rigM 1954 br H«»4 Lrmnce K td by "EA S*rri», hv. She pulled up the trap door there and dumped it down. I heard Mr. Dunn yell. When Mrs. Gelstrap started for another bucket of water, I stopped her." Agnes Argyle walked over to the woodbox and lifted the lid. She spoke at last, and her voice was husky "I see you found a hiding place. Mr Dunn." "Found it empty," Jim said. "But it might explain why Angelica Jones came here, why she was around the elevator." "It could. And you found it emptv?" "Yes. You can see marks in the dust on the bottom where someone has swept it out, cleaned it." "No," Sheriff Agnes said. "1 can't see that. Not now. Well, Mrs. Gelstrap,.maybe you'd better tell me what your real purpose was in pouring that water," "1 told you," the cook said sulkily. "I heard what you said. Try again. Your water throwing did a thorough job of sluicing out the hidey-hole." • • • MANGY said, "What goes on at the main house? 1 seem to be getting everything second-hand, Jim." He told her of ,the water, of the fight between Miss Wister and Mrs. Gelslrap. "I'm banished for the lime being," he went on. "Ostensibly to change clothes. Meanwhile 1 think the sheriff is on the phone again, .reporting to, headquarters, to Mrs, Oswald. And they're trying to get Mrs, Kit awake. Seems to be an idea we should all gather happily under the Carlson rool in the place across the lake." Nancy nodded. Apparently the move was no news to her. "Be handier for Agnes," she said. 1 "1 noliccd i»u l..u nil it oil I What did you tell tier, iwnc/r "Everything I knew." "Think that was wise?" Jim asked mildly. 'Of course, Jim. Really she Is remarkable. She'i, also understanding and shrewd.** "Shrewd, I'll grant you," Dunn said. "She,have anything to say as to why Mrs. Hilton hasn't been over here?" "No. Why should she? Mrs. Hilton, 1 mean." 'Her daughter dead," Jim out. "After all " "I guess the Carlsons are a .little different," Nancy said. "And I suppose Agnes told Mrs. Hilton not to come. After «11, what could she do?" "Nothing, I suppose," he said. Here's a little word of caution. It's just possible Sheriff Agnes is buttering you up for her own reasons." "It isn't like that," Nancy said indignantly. "And anyway, you were right about one thing. Agnes already knew about the California business. And maybe I shouldn't tell you this, but I think she knew beforehand that Mrs, Kit »nd Mrs. Gelstrap wer« coming here." Jim was more interested In the first part of that statement than in the news itself. "Why shouldn't you tell me?" • * * JVTANCY looked away from her •^ husband. "After all U w« more or less in confidence." 1 "I see." A horrid suspicion took root in Jim's mind and flourished. He decided to put it to the test. "Did Agnes—and I suppose I might as well adopt your informality—say who sh« suspected of the killing?" "An accident, Jim. It has to be. It better be!" Nancy closed her mouth firmly around further words. "Or our client might be a prime suspect?" "I wouldn't say that. Jim, honestly, I hate this Holding out on you." Jim Dunn felt as if he were standing on a sinking hummock of grass in the middle at • quicksand.
