"Home of Sudden Service" Blytheville, Ark Phone 3-8191 JusfV Cbrpse at Twilight XXIII I WAS half finished with breakfast when Al Purdy, of the Welfare Commission, walked in. H« told me that Van Horn wanted to perform the autopsy m Osborn today, instead at tomorrow, when he had another f. M. Scheduled. "All right. Did O'Connor «ay anything about getting a paper I «nt him?" "Nope." -He'll probably get it in the morning^ then. Listen, Al. . . ." I told him quickly about what had happened since my first visit, to the village of-Beech Tree on Friday afternoon. When I had finished, I turned my head so that he could see the small bandage .on the back of my neck. "That'i when he nicked me." -Yip««," Al breathed. "That's fettinf pretty personal." •Yei," I »greed; , "What're you going to do?" "I don't know yet.. The.sher- iff in Betch Tree is making passes at it, but I'm afraid his heart Isn't I'm 'going up there thi: morning," "W»rit me to go along?" I ihook my head. "Thanks, Al, but there's nothing you can do, maybe nothing that anyone can do. But I've got to take a stab at it." "Take care of yourself, Jim." He put on his hat and cocked it over one eye. "See you tonight?" "Yes, Jiut I-don't: know when, If 'the autopsy -I» late, I may not get loose until nine or ten, maybe later. And then I'll have to write a report for O'Connor." "If you need me,.pass the word. I'm starting at Allegheny Tool, "'on the ijouth side. Three claims to check—probably take me until noon.' You can trace mt from Inert, 1 ' - •••.'••• . : ',. • • • IT wasn't until I'd reached the WiochMtar IM and wai about M turn into the drive that I decided o talk to Sheriff Abner Cornwal- iis again. Something had been working in the back of my mind. A man in overalls was putting a new lock on the office door. The sheriff was behind nil desk fiddling with a screwdriver at one of the drawers. When he saw me he laid the screwdriver aside, owered his thick black brows and peered at me closely, taking n my blue suit and my cordovan, shoes, which were shined for a change. A white stubble of beard showed on his leathery cheeks and his mean little' eyes were Bloodshot. "My, my," . he said sneeringly, "ain't we all prettied up." "We're going to a funeral, aren't we?" "Oh, yeah. 1 almost forgot.' He sighed and pulled a hand down over his face. It made a Eaint rasping sound against the white bristles. "I'll have to shave and put on a clean shirt, I guess. 1 He picked up the screwdriver and prodded viciously at the lock on the desk drawer. "Gotta have a new lock here, too." "Did you get any prints?* "Prints?" His expression was outraged. "How can I get any prints without the equipment? The county don't even appropriate enough to pay me a living wage or give my prisoners square meal. Anyhow, what good would fingerprints be?". 'They're routine in most departments," I murmured. "Blah." • -' The fat man by the door said 'She's all set, Abner.' I've gotta do some work for Maude Dorn now, but I'll fix that desk lock tomorrow." ' "All right, Lew." Th« fat man picked up hls^tool box and left. "They won't even buy mi t secondhand sate," the sheriff said "I KM M kM| portant evidence in my desk, and see what happened;" "What'll you do now?" He banged the desk with a fist 'I'll tell you what I'm going to do. I'm going to question every- >ody connected .with this mess— _ grill 'em and search 'em." I said curiously, "And who would they be?" He held up a thin mottled hand and began to count on the fingers. 'Miss Lucy Dorn, Mr. Wilbur Tweed, Doc Jarrett. . . ." He caused, shifted his sly gaze from lis fingers to me. "And Mr. James Bennett." I wai startled. "Me?" "You're darn right. For a stranger in town you're'awful interested in Alice." He chewed :he cigar, watching me narrowly. "I think you're holding out on me." 'Sheriff, you're crazy." • * • "NO offense," he said smugly, showing his teeth in a kind of rodent snarl. "I been doing some figuring. You claim you found Alice dead, and all we got is your say-so. Doc Jarrett pointed It out to me—there was nobody there but you and Alice. Right now I'm Just trjing to do ray duty, and it's a—* "Matter of principle," I finished for him. "You forgot at least one person, Sheriff, in your' list of suspect*." .• ,• "Who?" he snapped. "You," I said gently. "You had a yen for Alice Osborn, too. You didn't want her to marry .WUbur Tweed or Dr. Jarrett or anybody. And all of you were there the night Frank Osborn died, you and Lucy and Alice, and Nellie Tweed and Wilbur." He rose from his chair, glarlnf at me, chewing furiously on th« cigar stub. "What h»» that jot to do with W v . "Maybe nothing, maybe a lot." 1 paused, watching him, and I added, "I intend to find out, one way or the other. And don't try to »lop me." "I'll itop you from .breaking thtlawl" he cried. "H you're itiU flfiirlnt on dolrtf that .autopsy tomorrow", forget It I wont let you do it."
