It'll b« from the same 21 rifle." • "I suppose so," he said heavily. "I'll get it anyway. Horace can dig it out when he comet back from Steel City." -With the kids' rifles ind the ballistics reports?" "Wild goose rifles,'", he said bleakly! "What kid would want to kill Alice? She wasn't no schoolteacher." He smiled- grimly •nd gazed at the bam. "But you'd think he'd have enough sense to collect all the slug cases, seeing as he was loxy enough to rig that target and all." "Maybe he didn't have time," I Hid. "When I arrived, he had •Jutt killed ^Alice—she was still •wmrro—»nd after he took a shot «t me he probably got flustered and scooted.

"The*e he forgot—«r didn't have time to collect" The sheriff sighed again. "Ye», he said, "but he'll remember and maybe he'll come back to fet "em." ,. , • • •-•" • > '."1 thought of thaV I "He might, just to be on the safe aide. How about a stake-out?" "Stake-out?" he said «oftly "That ain't no boorocrat word ton. You worked on a police idr« someplace?" • "Never mind, Sheriff," 1 *aid uniting M him.

He was watching me narrowly. 'It's a big agency, yes. I've been with them tor 20 years." He took a deep breath. "And you figure Alice was murdered?" I nodded. "How about plani- ng some empty .22 cases by the lam, sort of decoys?" He gazed at the barn. "Good dea. When Horace gets back, he can hide in the house and keep watch out the kitchen window. '11 bring him out, so there won't >e any car around to give him away." Slowly he swung his gaze back to me and caught me in the act of tenderly touching the tape on the back of my neck. "Got a boil?" he asked. I told him what had happened the night before, and showed him the bullet I'd dug from the car seat. He rolled it around in his jony, tobacco - stained fingers. •Thirty-thirty," he said. "Probably from a carbine," Ambushed." I tried to grin but the memory of the bullet made it a weak attempt.' His gaze was steady and he said evenly, "This it my county, and I don't like things like that." "The feeling i« mutual, I'm sure." "Some nut," he said. "Some screwball looae with a gun." "Two guns," I corrected him. 'A .92 and a 30-30." "You think it ties together? What happened to you and Alice last night?" "Sheriff," I Mid, "it happened to me twice." 1 nodded at the back porch. "Up there jesterdaj morning and on the road last night Twice is enough. I'm going after him." I WA8HT til rtlmd up abou It; I w»a Juat worried and quietly and desperately scared. I couldn' run away, because I had to stay here and finish my lob for th* Art 1 wanted w «U* »l hird bullet from being Hred. If could. The sheriffs office and th« ounty jail were housed in a small brick building behind the ourthouse a block from the square. The deputy, Horace, was here when I arrived. The sheriff had a bottle on hil desk, two glasses, a pitcher of water and a meager supply of ice •ubes in a pie tin. As I entered, lorace was saying, "So that's it, ; ibner. The slug don't match any f the rifles." He saw me. "Hello," ; said. "Hi, Horace." He grinned, and said to the heriff, "Can I go now, Abner? oanie's folks asked me for Sunday chicken dinner." "Go ahead, but I want you back here for a stake-out job." "Stake-out?" Horace looked >ewildered. "Yes," the sheriff said shortly. 'I'll explain later." He glanced at an electric clock on the wait 'You be back here at 1 o'clock. You can eat plenty ol chicken in an hour." 'Aw, Abner," Horace pro- • ested, "Joanie and me figured on going to the ball game. in Steel City. It's a double-header, and—" "Not tod'ay," the sheriff snapped. "Duty before pleasure." : HORACE put on hla broad- brimmed hat and strode out, jlamming the door. The p-ay cat trotted out at a passageway,, which I guessed led back to the ceils, and rubbed .against my legs, arching her back. I leaned down and scratched her ears: The sheriff poured whisky InV) the two glasses, added ice cubea and water, handed mt a glasa. "This ain't like a regular noon- er," he said apologetically, "but it's better than nothing." "Suitt me." I held up the flaae. I'Happy day«." He downed half hit drink ID one thirsty iwallow, wiped hla mouth with the back ol a hand, and pointed acroat the aquare at the Tweed Funeral Home.
