I said, "Sheriff, you didn't want Alice to m a "y Wilbur or Doc or anybody, did you?" "You're right," he blurted. "Wilbur is a nincompoop. He lets his sister boss him and run his. business. He ain't got guts enough to stand up and be a man." "Perhapi Alice should have picked Dr. Jarrett?" I said. "Him?" the sheriff said contemptuously "A pompous ox who thinks he knows everything? Last summer be told WiU'.e Brand's wile she had a tumor, «nd (our months later she gave fbirth to an eight-pound boy. first tumor I ever saw th«t bawled and .guzrfed milk. The whole county is still laughing about it." .. "The w«y you talk," I »l°. "you'd have made • better bus- iband for Alice than either the doctor or Wilbur Tweed."

Me, I'm going to eat" As I climbed the porch steps, II passed people coming down, red-faced farmers in dnrK Sunday suits and their sturdy wives in flowered drcss« aitf white •hoes. Nellie Tweed, dressed n the same lober black itoodI jn the dusk ot th« hall. H«t brown hair was still pulled back over her small ears and the dark- rimmed llasset gave her a somber look If. •!" rtWi-n' •he gave no ftnit. ^. "Mrt. Oibotn," I Biurmuroo, and turned into the room at the -ight of the hall. She looked calm and serene, as she must have, been in life, and her full lips still seemed to be smiling gently. In the hall Nellie Tweed said huskily, "Would you care to sign the register?" and indicated an open book on a stand beneath a bronEe-hooded lamp. "Thank you," I said. "Is 'Mrs Osborn's sister here?" 'We expect Mrs Woodruff this fternoon Her flowers arrived his morning." 1 moved to the book on the tand and wrote my name and eft and crossed the square to the Winchester Inn. ABNER CORNWALLIS sat at table by a window As 1 approached, I saw that he was drinking tomato soup directly rom the bowl. "Sit down, «it down," he greeted me, lowerin'g the bowl. "I ordered you the Sunday special." I sat down across from him. 'What's the Sunday special?" "SwiM iteak, mashed potatoes and gravy, succotash, Waldorf i«lad and butterscotch cream pie. Tomato loup or fruit juice. I had th« soup."' ' . "I'll have the juice," 1 said. 'Everything else sounds fine. An elderly, plunip, pay-haired waltreH came up and took my order. She bandied with the sheriff and went away laughing. The sheriff grinned after her, showing his y«Uow teeth. 1 said, "You're quite a man with the women, Sheriff. He leered at me and touched his thick white hair. "Snow on th« roof dont mean there »in' no fire In the furnace. How did she look?" 1 was a llttl* bewildered. "How did who look?". Allct. Who else?"

H« avoided my gaze and began to butter a rolL "It was nice of you," I said. "She has a lot of flowers." "Heathenish. She can't smell 'em." We left the dining, room and he waited while I entered the lobby, Mrs. Dorn was still behind the desk. She smiled and unhooked the glasses from her nose. - "How are you today, Mr. Bennett?" "Fine. Is Lucy around?" "She's up in the apartment." "Could I speak to her?" "Help yourself." She nodded at the phone on the desk. 1 PICKED up the phone. Lucj Dorn's voice said, "Yes?" • I said, "Do we still have a date or this afternoon?" "Oh, it'i you. Look, I'm ter- Ibly jorry, but—* "Forget it," I broke In. "Is everything fine between you and Doc now?" • "I—I think so.

"What will the people In Beech Tree do for medical care?" "There's a doctor at Indian Landing," she laid, "and many of them In Steel City. They , didn't appreciate him here anyhow.
