"Don't." His hand hung suspended, his thin old fingers dangling emptily, »nd hfc mouth fell open revealing the yellow rodent look of his lower teeth. Behind him by the ear th* deputy stood rooted, froxen with the impact of the gun in my hand. "Don't move, Horace," I said gently. "It'll be better that way." Horace said something, but It •was iunt a stuttering sound, and his eyes pleaded with the sheriff lor guidance. But the sheriff wa§ watching me fiercely, like a vicious old lion cornered at last, and his eyes still glowed red in the twilight I waggled the gun at Horace, "Come around here, stand beside the sheriff. Snap it up.* He obeyed briskly The sheriff didn't look at him, but continued to fix m« with hi« fierce out- rag«d gUrc. I moved to them, (ei-ited the gun Iran the stwriff's holatw and flapped Horace i hips. He was innocent of weapons. I stepped back. "Sit down, both o« you, and take it .easy." They sank slowly to the graM.

Martingale. "Go ahead, Jerry. Make the preliminary incisions." He turned to me. "Bennett, are you certain we're in tne clear? I don't want any legal ccmpiir cation* for the medicai section, or the Investigation department OL the Commission." "There won't be 111 taKe the -.•esponsibiHty." The she; if! snarled something, but I paid no atiention. "Chief," Dr. Martingale called. "Come here, please." • • • DR VAN HORN turned slowly and moved up the slope to where the bod), lay. The two men bent over, and I saw the younger man point a rubber-gloved finger. I watched curiously, awar* of a sudden and eerie silence in the cemetery. "There te something strange here," Van Horn said. "1 noticed the incisions, crude one* and rudely sutured, when I opened the man'i clothing, but I attributed '.hem to obsolete .embalming method*. Now we find that the body w_s opened before burial and the vital organs re. moved." I itared at him, feeling a sudden cold torn at iweat OB my forehead. "A highly irregular and unethical thing," Van Horn •aid-indignantly. "Heart, lunga, »tom- •ch,. intettines, everything." He waved an arm wildly, "It is im- potaible to do a post mortem examination! How can you tell if a man died of silicoils or a heart attack tf you do not have the lungs and heart?" He glared at me. "Dr. Richard Jarrett was the attending pbjitcitn, wa» he not?" I nodded dumbly. "I want to talk to him," he (napped "He'd better have a food meeoB, or 111 have hii license." •You cm Ulk to him," 1 Mid, "if he hasn't left town." I gazed down the -lope at ihe sheriff and Horace. They were still obediently sitting on the grass, the sheriff watching and listening intently. Horace sat dejectedly, plucking at the grass, no doubt thinking of another canceled date with .Toanie. The sheriff spoke in a surprisingly mild and innocent voice, "Is something wrong. Bennett?" "There is plenty wrong," Van Horn said grimly, stripping off his rubber gloves. "Let us see this Dr. Jarrett." The sheriff got stiffly to his feet, watching me slyly. "My legs are cramped," h« complained. I. let him stand, and said to Van Horn, "What about the body? Do you want it reburied?" "No, no, not yet. I wiH want tissue and bone specimens for chemical and microscopic examination. Jerry can secure those while we are gone. I want to see this jo-called doctor, this practitioner who removes organ* from a defenseless dead man before burial." • • • THE sheriff Mi; eagerly, TH take you f J see Doc Jarrett, X you want" • "Good," Van Horn snapped. 'This is state business, and I will demand an explanation. Highly irregular." He shook his big shaggy head reprovingly. "I can conceive of no proper reason for it." I Mid, "The undertaker who embalmed him—surely he mutt have known . , ." "I'll ca to him, alto," Vaa Horn said. "After- x have talked to Dr. Jarrett. He it the one who sifmed the death'.certiflcate. and he it responsible. ,The undertaker merely embalmed the body. He had no medical training and it U no particular concern of hit In what condition a body reaches him, except lor mutilation and eoametk profc- l«m». His job 1« merely to mall* the body as preventable aa possible and to preeerve It lonf enough to lurvlvt a hineral and the public gaze."
