Phone POplar 2-2302 SUSPECT By Hugh Lawrence Neteon XXVHI TPROM this side, the thousand- yard spine at rock which separated the Carlson Castle trom The Spires very much resembled a crouching lion looking down •on the calm water of Puma Lake. Jim drove slowly up the winding road, making the hairpin turns with an evidence of caution which was only absent-mindedness. . Angelica had left her husband just before Peter had married the present Mrs. Kit. Angelica had been taken to California, interrupting or at least spoiling the •"honeymoon," in order that Angelica might "forget" and probably as a part of the deal she had made with Mrs. Oswald. Angelica loved her former husband deeply. Even say she was as "romantic" as Miss Wister intimated, wasn't her knuckling under to old Mrs. Oswald—after Angelica had made the break— a little too much? Unless there is another reason! The death of Gregory Stoneman in California had occurred after Angelica's "break" with her husband. So that tragic event might be ruled out as a motive lor Angelica's return to the Carlsons, regardless of how much or how little it might have had to do with Angelica's actual death The Carlsons believed firmly thai Gregory Stoneman had been killed by one of themselves Each suspected another They were willing for the supposed killer to get away with murder, particularly when an outsider ivas concerned. But no one of them wa^ above puttiog pressure of one sort or another on the supposed killer for motives of per- sonai proBt or personal power. Stoneman now believed his brother's death accidental. Yet Etonoman insisted the others. ' < Kil Mrs Oswald Mr.' HII- Jkw, MM fojiUvn mufdm Ud Mrtr+vfW by MA Smct tat been done. What about the doll? It was possible for a woman like Angelica to place a great sentimental value on a childhood possession. But that was not enough reason for Angelica to return to The Spires when she had been frightened by someone following her. The usual route. Miss Wiater had been evasive about that, or at least had seemed relieved when he had not questioned her further. • * • J IM felt the thrill of excitement which comes with the discovery of one concrete base tor the building of a structure of facts. In this case, the hiding place. The Carlsons had come to the mountains around the first of August. The hiding place was a childhood haunt for Angelica and Peter. Sometime after the arrival, Angelica had revamped i the old cache, witness the three I rotten pieces of wood which had •been replaced in the nook by new lumber. *She had visited it occasionally; she must have because her actions had aroused enough curiosity for someone to follow her. She had learned that Mrs Kit was coming to take up residence at The Spires. Peler had known ,of (he hiding place. He might I have told his wife. Whatever ! was hidden there was of enough value to Angelica to warrant attempts to retrieve it One at- terript spoiled by the follower and by Jim Dunn's arrival. In spite of Stoneman'S delaying tac- I tics The other attempt had been stopped by death ttselt Jim drove past the spot where the creek gushed out of the huge hole In the cliff side, the creek which entered near the Carlson swimming poo: on the olf.ri si IP 1 fit JOOttli *t it thftiijhtfuHj^ (tfr- 1 cided its investigation could wait. ! • • • . TpHE deputy was sitting discon- •*• solately on the runningboard of his car when Jim stopped in the parking area of The Spires. "You come to relieve me?" the man asked hopefully. "Sorry. I just came to check up on a couple things," Jim admitted. The deputy grumbled, "Look around all you want, for all of me. But tell Sheriff Agnes she better send someone else here it she wants this place watched. I've had enough," He followed Jim into the basement, Dunn went to the furnace, clanged open its heavy iron door and bent down to stare into it* sooty interior. Jim borrowed a flashlight from the deputy, turned the beam into the furnace's gloomy interior. There was nothing inside, no trace of any pitch chunk But there was still considerable warmth coming out. He closed the furnace door gently, walked over to the pill of wood stacked so conveniently to the elevator. He selected a three-foot section of pitch, iplit from a large and resinous stump. Certainly an ideal lethal weapon, almost as deadly in effect u a piece of lead pipe. • • • t 1rTE heard a scuttling Bound, *-*- saw tht deputy backing away fearfully. Jim smiled and tossed the piece of pitch back onto the pile. "Think I was going to aluf you?" Jim asked. "I been here too long," the man reminded. Two fingers on Jim's right hand stuck together. He rubbed his hand on his pant leg, felt the adhesion to the material. "You got pitch on you," the deputy said "Hard stuff to get of7, too, once it gets ground,in." Jim bent over, rubbed his palm and fingers in the dust .of the floor The stickiness of the pitch lessened, but his palm and fingers were covered with a black layer. "A little turpentine or alcohol. That's what you need to get it 3nT," the (•ie-'u'y said (?•*•< 'rom&t DELIVERY SERVICE Phone 3-4507 Hours: 8 aoru to 9 p.m. with Delivery to 7 p.m. WOODS DRUG STORE 221 West Main St. tqoinery Ward WARDS PAY HALF INSTALLATION COST Now, Wards offer to pay one- half of the Installation cost of a rebuilt motor for you.
