Philip Sloneman's code flashed through Jim's mind. "You planned for money, a husband for Mrs. Kit, and an easy lite?" i "Yes," Kit answered. "You try to make it sound horrible. I don't know why you should. Sue and I were left, alone when our (parents died. We had to plan, j because we had our own way to | make. Sue went to work in a : private home, worked up until she got good money as a cook. !We didn't see each other much, 'and then only in secret. We'd : decided I was to have schooling. Sue made the money to keep us alive, but I worked hard too. And now, well, I'm married to Peter Carlson, and I could pretend to hire Sue as my cook, so we could share." i Jim said, "Didn't the San 'Francisco police find out your true relationship?" • Mrs. Gelstrap giggled. "No, i they .didn't. We covered it well. 11 kept in the background, gave i money and advice while Kit..." 1 she hesitated. "Shopped around?" Jim sug- , gested. ' "That isn't quite the way to put it," Kit said seriously. "Sue always said it was just as easy to fall in love with a man with money. And I want you to get one thing straight. Peter is my husband now, and we're very much in love." "Why isn't he around to help you now?" "Peter is afraid of Mrs. Hilton. Actually afraid. You've seen that horrid whip. He—Peter has told me of his mother's sudden rages, of the beatings she gave him as a child. Beatings for him, and for his sister Angelica loo." Jim was much interested to learn that Mrs. Kit was far enough outside th« family circle so she had not been told that Angelica was Agnes Argyle's daughter. You brought up the fact Mrs. Argyle was in California at the time of the tragedy there. Do you suspect her?" "Something's wrong with her," Kit said. "Something happened to her. She's too hard." 'Do you two believe Angelica's death was accidental?" 'Angelica went to The Spires because she had something of great value hidden there. Something worth a second attempt to regain. Possibly something which would give her a hold, an upper hand over Mrs. Oswald or Mrs. Hilton, or both. Angelica wasn't happy about giving up her husband, even if she did do it for the Carlson favor." "You and your sister," Dunn went on, "have come a long way on the path you chose. The success of your plans is very close indeed. What would you two do to keep anything from happening to spoil your plans now?." Mrs. Gclstrap giggled. "We'd do most anything. But not something stupid. Killing would be stupid." • .* • ATISS WISTER handed Jim » sheet of paper with • few lines o( typing on it as soon is they were alone in the small sunroom. Jim tore the paper up. He smiled at her. "So much for the resignation. I don't know for sure what you've done to feel you should quit. But at a guess, I'd say it was because you moved Angelica's body?" Miss Wister looked at the shreds of paper. She sighed. "Thank you," she said. "Yet, one of the things I have to tell is that I moved Angelica. I wanted to see it I could do anything. 1 couldn't. Sht was dead, and the elevator platform wat crushed down on her. I had to raise it to get her out." "You said you were going to have a talk with Mrs. Oswald, Did. you tell her th»t?" "Yes." Jim could understand now why the old woman had been so eager for him to make the investigation. Miss Wister would tell him how she had found, the body. Death by accident would be a foregone conclusion, and Jim, as an apparently disinterested witness, would wield • big brush in applying the coat of whitewash to the remaining Carlsons. "It's a simple enough and usual enough situation. My folks never had any money, even though there was the kinship to millions. But they tried to keep up. They broke their hearts trying. 1 made up my mind early I wouldn't make that mistake at least. I made another just as bad. I was fool enough, after my parents died, to go to Mrs. Oswald for help. I wanted to go to college. She suggested a secretarial course. She arranged > part scholarship for me in such a school, »nd ihe got me a Job waiting on tables lor the rest at my tuition. I never asked her for any other help." • • • J IM decided to fill in MiK Wister's lonj pause with a question. "You were supposed to come up here with a report. I gather there it such i report?" "Yes. And that's one reason I —gave you my resignation. I'll still give it to you if you want But I cculdn't tell you what actually happened. I was afraid you would tell everything to the sheriff." Jim asked gently, "You found out that Angelica was Agnes Argyle's child?" Miss Wister let out a sigh of relief. "Yes. I'm so glad you know. But can't you see how I saw things? I couldn't tell you the truth about what actually happened without telling you at the same time about Angelica— so you wouldn't tell everything to Agnes Argyle. Oh, I suppose that sounds mixed up to you, but it isn't. M«ybt there's too much Cirlnn in my make-up after all."
