XV1I1 I PARKED in Lhe drive at the Oshorn place and thought saclly that already, in a day's time the place looked deserted and desolate There was an official-looking seal pasted over the lock ot the front door which warned: "Keep Out Under Penalty ot Law Closed by Order of the Slierifl " 1 walked around the side yard to the rear, and noted a similar seal on the back door. I saw a third seal on the padlocked barn door 'and then walked away from the house and up the hill into the woods I came to the spot where we'd found the target tacked to the beech tree. Once more 1 stood facing the tree and aighted an imaginary rifle. 1 couldn't see the house; it was down hill and beyond th« thick growth of trees. Walking In a straight line I left the tree and went down the hill. In a moment the back of the (Teen barn appeared, but all 1 could see of the house was a corner of the back porch and no windows. I walked straight to the barn, paused Ion; • enough to see a number of small splintered h o 1 e t In the dry peeling paint, and then moved • through the high glass to the • corner ot the barn and peered | around It. The house was about 30 yards away. I had a clear view of the back porch and the ; kitchen window above the sink. , I lit a dsaret and leaned • atfJinn tht barn. Crlcketa chirped around me and the birds were shrill in the trees .As noon came on. the chill was leaving the air and the breeze was soft on my face 1 turned and gared back up the hill through the trees and I told myself thai bullets fired in the target area, even bullets fired in the general direction of the target, would never hit the house, not even if a 22 could carry that far They would hit the barn, because it was between the woods rsnd the house, and they would be . almost expended, alreadv nearing the end of their trajectory But a .22 fired from where 1 stood at a person on the back porch, as I had been, or at Alice Osborn peeling potatoes before the kitchen sink — that bullet 'ould be deadly. 1 knelt down and raked my fingers through the grass. 1 found them almost Immediately two bright little brass cartridge cases. I rolled them around in my fingers, seeing the crimp the firing pin had made They were .22's. all right, and at 30 yards and with careful aim they were as deadly as a 45. if not as messy. 1 dropped them into my jackei pocket • • • THEN 1 went up the back porch steps and peered at the hole In the wood beside the door, the hole. made by the bullet which had so narrowly missed my head. There wat no point in digging it out, 1 thought; It wouAd be a .11, and (ram the same gun which had killed Alice Qiborn. Ai 1 turned and went down the steps, t heard tires crunch'on the stones of the drive. 1 knew It was ShJtlB Abner Cornwallii before he came around the corner of the houie. "Good morning, SherlfT," I said. He still wort the wrinkled seersucker ault buv todaj. because it was Sunday. I i|u?ssed. ht bad put on a clMn white shirt and a black string tie. It he'd had a white goatee he wouH have resembled an advertisement for Kentucky whisky "What'M you doing out here?" His voic< was unfriendly "Just looking around, Sheriff. If you want to arrest me. I'll gf quietly." "No use now," he said sourly 'You ain't got that paper witr you any more." 'That's right," I said cheerfully. 'It won't do you any good. Nobody's going to dig up Frank Osborn without permission from the coroner or next of kin. It's my duty to uphold the law " 1 took the small cartridge :ases from my pocket and held them out for him to see "I found these in the grasf over there by the corner of the barn." [ pointed. * • • HE squinted at the barn, hii eyes measuring the distance from it to the back porch, and then he leaned over and peered at the cases. "Twenty-two's,** h* said. 'Probably more up there in the woods where the target was, only we couldn't find 'em.** I said, "The bullets fired from :he target area hit the barn. They couldn't have struck the house, or gone in the kitchen window — the barn was In the way." I rolled the little brass obiects around in my fingers. These were fired from th« corner of the barn, where there's a clear view of the house—at 30 yards." He didn't speak lor a moment, and then he sighed. "How do you figure? That it wasn't no accident? That somebody rigged th«t target to make it look like kids shooting, and then sneaked down wre and picked off Alice through the window?" 1 nodded. "And took a shot at me for good measure." He peered at me in the sun, pulling his black brows together. 'You ain't fiiit a state-paid boorocrat I know that now, and I've «eeh a pasael of 'em." He looked up at the woods. "1 (ot to wondering about it, too." ' Continued, from preceding MONEY TO LOAN Attention Farmers — We have plenty of low Wz% interest money to loan on your farm.
