Pharmacist ft MET ChirlM Broedon, owner Main at Division Phone 2-2019 Jusf a Corpse at Twilight xx? AN old, rid man sunning himself oo a bench in front of the Beech Tree Farmer's 1 Bank told me shrilly, with much waving of thin arms, that Sunny Acres iCemetery was two miles out of •town on the old Wellington Road, on my right, just past Clint Mur- dock'a place, can't miss it. Mister. Patient questioning netted me the fact that the Wellington road had its roots in the street beyond the Tweed Funeral Home, 'going east Two miles out, just past a big old Victorian farmhouse with C. IMurdock on the roadside mail ibox, I saw the tombstones glinting In the sun. I turned off the road-and drove through an ornate iron archway and along a narrow stoned drive which ; wound up between the graves. jAt the top of the hill I stopped. [On my left a man was riding a [power mower. I got out and 'walked toward him. He saw m* coming, throttled jthe mower's motor, and sat waiting. "Howdy." He pushed a frayed ittraw hat back from a sunburned 'face. He was maybe 30 yean old. "Can you tell me where I can find the cemetery caretaker?" "That'i me. What can I do for you?" He leaned down and held out a hand. "I'm Ted Johnson." "Bennett," 1 said, shaking his hand. "I'm from the Industrial Welfare Commission and 1 have instructions to exhume • body. Can you take care of It for me?" "Reckon- »o," he said shortly."What body you want dug up?" "Frank Osborn't. He wit burled last December." "Remember It well. Ground wai frozen hard." Hi.turned and waved an 'arm. "Frink'i buried over I he hill The boys tust fln- Js '.ea tllsisins m.« wife's ni'ave, right biaid* Fraok'i. AUct bought a double lot when he died. Her funeral is this afternoon." "I know," I said. "When can you start digging?" "Right after the funeral. It wouldn't look right to be digging up Frank before his wife is buried." "No, ft wouldn't," I agreed, thinking with i admiration that Ted Johnson was a man who knew his job. ! 'You got authorization and identification?" I showed him my wallet containing the embossed card with the state seal and Austin O'Connor's heavy signature. "Mrs. Os- borh gave us permission before she died," I told him. "You can call the commission and check, if you like." 'I guess that won't be necessary. I ought to check with Jake Oakes—he's president of the Cemetery Association—but Jake's in St. Louis «t a cemetery convention." 'Do cemet.ery associations have conventions?" I asked. 'Sure they do. Big deal, I guest. I'm a trustee of the Beech Tree association and Jake says maybe next year he'll take me along to the convention—it'll be in Pittsburgh then." • • • "VERY interesting," I said, and handed him a 19 bill. "But this 1: for your cooperation. Get your men to digging right after thje funeral, as soon as the crowd Idavcs. You keep track of their time and the state will pay." He tucked the bill into a shin pocket. "Okay, thanks. It's for an autopsy,~ I suppose, on account oj Frank's lung trouble? He was on state compensation lor a long time before he died." Yin," I wld, (mazed at the pertonil Information which circulated In • smnll co-imun'ly "Going to do It at Wilbui •No. We'll do it right here. It won't take long: We'll need soma supports 'for the casket, though, and maybe some planks to lay the body on. And tell your men to stand by until we're finished. We'll pay for 'the waiting time. I'll want them to fill in the grave again." . "Okay, I'll get some saw horses and some planks." He laughetl softly. "I heard old Wilbur refused to let you use his embalming room. He was sweet on Alice, but she wouldn't marry him until Frank had been dead a year. What time do you think you'll be finished?" "By sundown, I hope." * • • HE grinned. "Five bucks can buy a lot of cooperation. See you later." The mower's motor swelled, shattering the sunlit morning, and he swung away from me on his high seat, waving an arm. Cut grass sprayed in green clouds from the blades ai he guided the mower between the graves. I returned to my car, followed the stoned drive up and down and around between the graves and left the cemetery by the gate I had entered. It wai 10 minutes until 12 o'clock noon. In Beech Tree I turned off th« square and took the road leading to Alice Osbom'j house. I bad no special reason for doing so, except that I had two hours to kill before the funeral. As I approached the place I saw that there were two cars in the,drive, the sheriff's black sedan and a glittering pale blue car with Indiana plates. Mr. and Mrs. Louis Woodruff, I thought, accompanied by Sheriff Abncr Cornwall's, inspecting the loot I drove, past, turned around In a lane,.- and. drove Slowly, back to the village. It seemed to me that they could have waited until alte:' th* funeral. At the counter in the big corner drugstore I. had a toaited ham sandwich, a piece of cherry pie and a glan of milk. Afterward I boufht a SM«I City new*. paper and Mi In my car and read It until 20 mlnulei of two.
