Art you going to the funeral?" "I ftgurt on It" H« drained his glasa. . "Maybe w« : can go together," I suggested. ' • He placed his glass carefully on the table and his little bloodshot «yei peered at me. "You fpt a sort of—of feeling for Alice Osborn? la that why you want to pay your «»pects?" "I don't know," I said slowly, realizing that 1 really didn't knowV "I'm interested In her husband's caae, and I was the one who found her ." My voice trailed off. His head nodded up and down. "Alice kind of gets you—got you, I mean—just looking at her. She fot you, didnt the, evtn if she •was dead?" " , "She—was attractive.* "If I was 20 yeara younger, I'd have given Doc Jarrett and Wilbur Tweed a run for Allot. She was my kind of woman, friendly and easy-going, good- looking, but not too food-looking, and smart, too." He Angered Ms empty (inn and scowled at me. his hUvy blat brows join- Ing over the bridge of hit thin blade of i DOM, and said abruptly, "You dont figure on doing thai autopsy on Frank, do you, now that Alice is gone?" I was getting • Uttle weary of the question. "Certainly. Why MtT" •Due JvtiM weat rtow tt. He told me so, and he's the coroner. And Wilbur Tweed talked to m« about it, and he (aid he won't let you use his place to do it in And you can't get Alice's permission, now that she's dead. Where does that leav. you? Out in the cold, U you ask me." • • • I RKMK'B£RED suddenly that i hadn't mailer 1 Alice Os- bom'i signed release to Austin O'Connor, and I tapped the right side of my :oat. "I've got Mrs. Osborn's permission in writing to do the post mortem on her husband." Almost before 1 spoke, I knew it was a mistake. "Oh, is that so?" he said softly. "Fast work, huh? When, may I ask, did Alice give it to you?" 'She mailed it," I lied. "That so'. Yecterday, out at n«r place, you told me you went there to iee her about it, and you found hei dead. How could she mail it?" . 'I talked to her on thi phone on Friday. I mailed the form to h*r and she signed' it and sent it nack to me." I was making it worse, ! thought; be had tripped me. "How?" he asked, hunching forward. "How csuld Alice do that? If you'mailed it to her last evening, when I saw you at the poet office, the wouldn'i get it until thl* morning, and if she signed it and mailed it right back you • would never have it until Monday, or mayl.. tomorrow. U your hotel picks up tta mail. But you didn't get it today, not in the mail- . . "All right," I said, grinning at him, "It you want to get technical. I. mailed her the form last night She got it this morning, before the was killed,, signed it and put H in an envelop* stamped and sealed and ad- dreMed to me. I found it by the phone, ill ready to mail." "That's better," he wild Vith flta MtittaeUo*. "Don't try to get cagey with m«, son. I been around a long time. So you just took it, huh?" "It wai addressed to me." "But it was still ID her nous*, the property of a dead woman. The law decides who-gets'what in • case like that" "What difference d e e i » make?" Hi* bead wn mil weaving, but his little bloodshot eyes never left my face. "Maybe no difference, maybe a lot." He hunched a Uttle farther forward. "What il Alice's sister out in Fort Wayne is next at kin and she decide) she don't want her brother-in- law dug up and messed with?" "Sheriff," I said, "that's pretty far-fetchedi and you know it ha« nothing to do with this. Why arc you worrying about H?" 'I'm not worrying about it I'm just trying to do my duty. I locked up Alice's house and put a seal on the doom I'm responsible for the house and what's in it until the will Is probated, U Alice had a will." He held out t hand. "Give me that paper." I HAD unpleasant vitiom <rf Austin O'Connor's thrill outragt it I turned over Alice Osborn's autopsy permission to a village sheriff. "No,". I said. "I'm sorry." "I'm the law h«r«, son," he said g«ntly. Tnvnot wearing my gun, but I can fore* you to turn that paper over. I can 'deputize Key, there, to help roe, it I need him." "Sheriff," I laid sincerely, "you've had a hard day. Maybe you'd better to to bed." "Give me that paper." I began to'feel mean, too.
