Phone POplar 2-2302 SUSPECT By Hugh Lawrence Nelson A T first, Jim thought he had entered a huge underground cavern. A second look showed that Mrs. Oswald's studio had been set up in what must once have been the ballroom erf the original stone structure. The old woman herself was perched on a high stool beside a 20-loot-long worktable. She looked up when the two entered, glanced at her watch and then went on methodically with the work at hand. Because he had seen it before, in a more pleasing shape, Jim was able to recognize the trout even though it was now turned inside out. The table itself, and every available space on the walls, was filled with samples of Mrs. Oswald's taxidermy. A peculiar odor of both preservation and decay filled the whole room. At the far end of the table from the. old womnn, a great horned owl grabbed frantically and lopsidedly at a papier-mache stump with twisted and misshapen talons. Mrs. Oswald dropped her brush, pushed aside the fish skin. Apparently she had followed the direction of Jim's glance because she went on, "Not one of my belter efforts, that owl. In the first place I didn't give the inside of the skin a thick coating of potter's clay." She sighed. "But then, it wouldn't have mattered. I tried to get fancy instead of using Graves' mixture of arsenic and alum." Shcrirt Agnes Argyle said, "I'm sorry about this, Mrs. Oswald. Your granddaughter." The old woman looked down at her gnarled hand, closed it carefully and experimentally. She winced at the pain from arthritic knuckles. When she spoke again her voice, had regained its customary harshness. "Well, you're the official. What're you going to do about it?" There was an understanding between these two women which went beyond the usual, far beyond the relationship of an elective officer in the presence of the power that is. M RS. OSWALD deigned to notice him again., "What are you doing here? Why aren't you out threatening other old women with a spanking?" She made the cackling sound which passed with her as a laugh. "He's a private detective," Agnes said. Mrs. Oswald's shrewd eyes probed. "So," Mrs. Oswald said. She turned again to Agnes. "Kit?" she asked. "Yes. She hired him. And his wife." "Still worried about that California business, is she?" "You can be impersonal about suspicion," Jim said, "until it touches you yourself." "What have we here?" Mrs. Oswald demanded. She lifted her hooded eyelids for a clearer view. "Agnes, tell Mrs. Hilton I think she's a fool." "Yes, Mrs. Oswald." Jim did not see how the two remarks followed each other. "But never mind. I suppose Philip has told you what we «11 were doing while—my granddaughter died?" "Yes," Agnes said again and this time in her official voice. "Do you corroborate his story?" There was that harsh cackle again. "Of course I do. Didn't I tell him what to say? And for your benefit, Mr. Dunn, it's the truth." Sheriff Agnes said, "Could you think of any reason why anyone would want to kill Angelica?" She put a sudden and unaccustomed quaver in her voice. 'I'm an old, old woman and I wouldn't know about such things. Sheriff." "Why should she have gone to The Spires in the first place?" "Angelica always liked the place. I never did. That's the -eason it got so run down 1 gave .t to Pete—for his honeymoon. 3ut Mrs. Kit wouldn't come at all—then." Jim said carefully, "My client, Mrs. Kit, was suspect in the death of a man in California. That was proven accidental to .he satisfaction of the police, v a woman dies or is killed n the basement of the house VIrs. Kit occupies. Once again ihe is alone with her faithful cook, Mrs. Gelstrap. Coincidence?" "Angelica could have been tilled by the accidental fall of :hat elevator." If the death was accidental, :he person who moved the body might have had a grudge against Mrs. Kit. You can see that, can't you?" * • • npHE old woman waved a •*- gnarled hand. "You don't have to be obvious with me. Of course I see it. Another body wouldn't look so good for your client. I hear Miss Wister has the Carlson temper? Who would have expected it ol her?" Jim gave up trying to direct the conversation. "What relation Is Miss Wister to you?" Mrs. Oswald cackled. "From what I've been told the relationship could be purely murderous. Angelica saw Miss Wister occa- ionally. Sneaked oft to see her, just as she sneaked away to marry that Jones man. After we had a suitable marriage arranged for her too!" "If she hadn't sneaked away to marry, would you have let her?" "That's none of your business. The important thing is that Angelica may have seen Miss Wister once too often." There it was, out in the open. An accident, or suspicion directed toward Miss Wister. (T. Be Onllnued) For Genuine Parts and Expert Service See Your Ford Tractor Dealer SNOW TRACTOR CO.
