XXIII OSWALD rattled her demitasse, used it as a gavel •M : to call the meeting to order. "I have been thinking this matter over," she announced. "Outsiders are present and must be completely satisfied. We do she had deliberately jockeyed the situation so someone would make that very .suggestion. But she had learned not to give it without a show 0E resistance, even when it was her own desire which had been suggested. "Mr. Dunn is employed by Mrs. Kit," she said. That fact might prejudice him not care to have more talk^ la*^.. . jp her f avor ." "A diamond- studded claw reached for Therefore I have decided that I Mrs. Argyle is incompetent to handle the—investigation. Tomorrow I intend calling in the State Police. Or at least some outside competent officials." Jim could recognise an intentional bombshell when it was tossed. He tried to read the meaning of the various expressions of surprise on faces which quickly assumed the blankness of disappointment and a disagreement which must at all c*sts never be expressed openly. He waited for Sheriff Agnes to protest, but it was only Mrs. Hil,'ton who .ventured a question. "Really, Mrs. Oswald, is that necessary?" "I wouldn't do it otherwise," the old woman snapped. "I want this matter cleared up entirely, Mrs. Hilton. I want no aftereffects." A member of the family dead, Jim thought. And the remaining members who might be involved sat over cups of coffee and planned coldly. No sign of grief. Were they too hardened or too well schooled for that? Mrs. Hilton looked across at Jim and smiled. "But is it necessary to call in more outsiders?" she asked. "We have Mr. Dunn with us, who I understand is a professional. Why not let him make what Inveitlgations you ftel Aggie ii incapable of conducting." For the fraction of i fceond, Jim saw a gleam of triumph in MM. O-wald'i tyti. Hi rt*Ui«d brandy glass. Jim took the opportunity to catch the old woman's eye. He winked at her. Mrs. Oswald coughed. She put the glass down. Jim looked at Sheriff Agnes. The woman's coffee cup shook in her strong fingers, but she voiced no objection. "Mrs. Kit U my client," Jim said. "I intend to make a full investigation anyway." Dunn blamed the company for the almost stilted words. Mrs. Oswald pressed ahead. "However, If it was among us that you were in charge, certain information and facilities would be available. There would be -a cooperation which I do not think you would have otherwise." "True enough," Jim admitted. "But suppose there would b« tx- pected an equal amount of cooperation on my part? In other and blunter words, I'd be expected to suppress anything which could be considered detrimental to the Carlson family?" "Not at all," Mrs. Oswald lied. "We all want the whole truth, of course." J IM DUNN awakened suddenly from l restless, dream-ridden sleep. A glance at his luminous watch told him It was two-thirty H« blamed the ghastly hour for his anxiety, for his sudden wake- fulnew, nil owl-«yed awareness Beside him, Nancy breathed softly. He decided he might as well get up and have a cigaret. The decision must have brought relaxation of sorts. He must havt dozed, because Nancy was shaking him. "Jim! Jim! Wake up. Quit snoring. And there's someone at the door." He flipped on a light, struggled into his robe, and stumbled to the door, Agnes Argyle stood there, brought into sharp relief by the Dunns' light. "It—it's Mother," Agnes said. "It's Mrs. Oswald. She's b«n poisoned." Almost as shocking as the words themselves was the fact that Sheriff Agnes was crying. * • * TT was' full daylight, a morning - 1 of blue sky filled with broken white" clouds pushed swiftly by a high altitude wind, before the doctor pronounced Mrs. Oswald out of danger and ready to see Jim Dunn. Jirn's drastic emergency measures of the night before, the f*ct Uiat arsenic used in the taxidermy work had suggested the poison, and the circumstance of the doctor himself being handy in Creek Junction, had combined to make the swift recovery possible. When Jim went in the huge bedroom in the old part of the house, the dim light made It almost impossible for him to see the small figure in the huge old- fashioned bed with its solid cher- rywood head and foot. Mrs. Oswald was an almost Imperceptible mound in the expanse of white blanket. Jim drew the curtains aside. Mrs. Oswald showed little sign of her ordeal except a new touch ol fragility. "You keep your supply of arsenic locked up?" "No. Anyone could have gotten some. Everyone knows I ust it. it's in a paper bag right there on my studio workbench." "Perhaps you got a quantity in your mouth by accident?"
