Blytheville, Ark. Tel. POplar 3-8051 SUSPECT ' Hugh Lawrence Nelson XXV A C-VES ARGYLE'S eyes were cloudy with a review of the past, with a search for some point at which to begin. They brightened at last with decision. "You've seen the 'Carlson Conscience.' the framed relic. It wasn't in the j^Iass case when I was a child. Not when Father was alive. He believed in that creed inscribed now on the case, and he practiced it He was a tyrant whose word was irrevocable law And the slightest breach brought punishment." Agnes licked her thin dry lips as if tasting the bitterness. Her strong hands clenched and un- t clenched, yet the monotone of her voice did not change, as her words provided a commentary on her mental pictures of the past. "We had it well drummed Into us that the only law was the Carlson word. Everyone has something, some power they feel they must answer to. With us it was the Carlson law, represented by my father at this time. Nothing higher, and no appeal. "I started running away from home in my very early teens. Not with any hope of escape, but •with desperation. I wss caught and brought back. Father whipped me. I used to pray that he would die. Finally he did, and I thought things would be better. They were, in a way. Mother—Mrs. Oswald—never actually used the whip on us. She had it framed. We had been taught so well and the threat was enough. Most of the time. But when I was 17 I ran away again I had planned well and 1 had help. Toby. My husband. \Ve were married and I was pregnant by the time we were found. Mrs, Oswald washed her hands of me. But ,sh« told me I'd never break away completely, that I'd always remember rhy early 'training.' I remembered. "And then our little girl was born. Times were hard for us and Toby was sick. It wasn't his fault it wasn't mine." She looked up at Jim then. "We came to terms with Mrs. Oswald, turned our baby over to her." "Why?" Jim demanded. • • • ""A T ANY reasons," Agnes said. "They seemed to be good reasons then. I don't know I think perhaps I would do the same thing under the same circumstances. , Yet you're right, It isn't easy for a woman to give up her first child. But my brother Hilton had married by then, married with Mrs. Oswald's blessing. The baby, Angelica, was to be brought up as their own. She was to have all the benefits of the Carlson money. I thought my brother would be kind, thought he had suffered enough. And Toby needed an operation so desperately, Mri. Oswald was right on hand with the money—provided. The alternative? Nothing, Nothing. Maybe she didn't mean it. Maybe she would have helped. 1 don't think so., Arid Angelica would have everything I realized Toby and I were never going to be able to give. I—I made the deal. "I thought I was doing right at the time, and for a while, for almost 10 years, everything seemed to b« working out. I thought I had done right, that my love for Toby and, yes, my actual fear of the Carlsons, had led me into doing the right thing. But after that 10 years, Mrs. Hilton had a son. That's Peter. Before, Angelica had been brought up « • true child, made'over, maybe spoiled. Peter's birth made a difference." The simple statement brought up a vivid picture of heartbreak. "When did Angelica find out you were her mother?" Tears started running unheeded and unchecked down Sheriff Agnes' face. "She never knew. Somehow I can't bear that. I thought I had all my emotions killed, every feeling so deeply buried I'd never let things touch me, not to show- I was even able to—do ,my official duties without it—showing." "Do you know who poisoned her?" "She says I did. I don't know. Maybe I did at that. Last night I brought her up a cup of chocolate, last thing. She likes it sweet. I put extra sugar in it from the bowl in the kitchen. She says that's where the arsenic came from." TVTRS. KIT was in her bedroom, *•"• pacing the floor while Sue elstrap overflowed a small dressing table chair, when Jim obeyed a called summons to "Come in." "How's Mrs. Oswald?" Mr«. Gelstrap asked. "She'll live," Jim said curtly. "But it's time now for som« facts." "What do you mean?" Mrs. Kit demand td. 'I think you know what I m«an. I want the truth about the relation«hip between you and Mrs. Gelstrap." "All right," Kit said defiantly. It's nothing to be ashamed ot We're sisters." "Stepsisters," Mrs. Gelstrap corrected whcezily. "And we're living proof that stepsisters do get along. Kit was always the pretty one." 'But you have the brains, Sue," Kit said. Mrs. Gelstrap accepted that as the equal truth to the fact that Mrs. Kit had the beauty. "I got fat in my teens," she went on. "Glands or something. But Kit and I always got along, we never fought like members of some families. We made plans. We decided on what we wanted in life. We made plant to get if (To Be Means Less Work . . .
