BY 9:30 it was aD over, and i the big house was quiet. 1 left •Nellie Tweed long enough to talk [to Dr. Richard Jarrett, and to j help the undertaker from Indian ! Landing carry Wilbur Tweed jdown to the ambulance in the drive. A small crowd oJ villagers 'had gathered on the sidewalk. JThey muttered and stared avidly, ! until the sheriff brusquely dispensed them. They retreated across the street, but still continued to stare and murmur. Dr. . Jarrett was stiff and formal, and never once Sid he look me straight in the eye. His thin i mouth twitched slightly w he i pronounced Wilbur Tweed dead 'by his own hand. The sheriff and I signed » form as witnesses. .Then the doctor addressed the •sheriff. "I assume that I am now 'free to leave tomorrow?" It seemed to me that there.was a ifaint sneer on his, lips. "Dr. Van 'Horn iwiU have no objtctions— In vi«w. of Wilbur'i confe«ion7" "No, of course not," the sheriff said quickly. "I'm forry »bout ithat You go right ahead, Doc." He hwHated, avoiding J»rrett'« gaze. "I'm the l«w here.", "Thunk you, A b n * r." He tunwd »way, fcnorinc a*, uui «W>—queer CUM, «int h*t" tt» iherifl »«id, avoiding my ia» "Sm^rt, but rtubbom. It'« Just / at well he'i leaving. Folk! around here didn't like him much—too •uppity »nd cock-sure." Ht took the (rayed and soggy cigar from his mouth and gaied at M with distaste. "ThU stogy to plumb wore out ... Well, I'd b«tt*r run out and get Sarah Allbach. She'll care for Nellie Twetd. Can you (tick around until I get b»ck?" • • • HB hurried toward the *ec, ner.ously chewing the clgw. •Juat a minute, SUrifl." He turned, his expression absurdly innocent 'What's the matter?" I asked curiously. "You've been jumpy ever since we left the cemetery. Something bothering you?" "Why, no," he said sincerely. "Nothing at all." "You'd better tell me. I'll find out anyhow." He hesitated, indecision on his face. .He was struggling with himself, maybe with his conscience. Virtue won or fear, because he didn't know how much I knew. Hii gaze met mine directly, and he sighed forlornly. "So Doc Jarrett told you?" "Maybe," I lied. , "Don't play cat and mouse, son." "I'm not." I was still lying. He moved up close to me and I could smell the cigar and the stale whisky fumes. "I :'«• remembered," he said softly. "You didn't giv« mt my sun back." I took hii old .45 from my pocket ejected the cartridges, and handed it to him, butt first. He took ii, and his teeth showed around th« cigar. "Don't you trust me?" he asked in a hurt "What'i between you and Dr. Jarrettr He hefted the fun in fill palm and riched again. "I may ai well tell you — you probably know anyhow. It *in't much—jurt littl* deal between Mends, no harm in tt. Doe fave me 159 to —to keep you from dlgjinj Frank up." "A bribe," I Hid. He ihtvered aa K b* wen cold "Don't uy that Doc meant well —ha c*me to mt I*M Friday nlfht, afttr you'd t*lk*d to him He a*id the lutopay on Frank want Mcttwry and that oOl ot respect (or Allce'i feellnit he'd refua^ to fin you permUilon •t rwor* to «w that Frank AM of a heart attack, like he said, and that there was no sense in Stirring things up. I believed him, and I could see his side. His reputation as a doctor was shaky anyhow, and any more publicity about one of his patients wouldn't do him any good, and—well, I agreed to back him up." "For $50." "I'll send it back to him—as soon as I get my July pay from the county." "Sure you will, Sheriff.," I handed him the cartridges. He put them into a coat pocket and gave me a sly up-froni- under look. "You ain't gonna hold it against me, are you?" I shrugged. "It's on your conscience," "But I really did believe Frank died of a heart attack," he protested. "I never dreamed that. Wilbur Tweed was mixed up in it. As far as I knew, the autopsy wasn't legal, and I was just doing my duty." He looked at me righteously. "That's.right, Sheriff. It wasnt a bribe—just a gilt lor services rendered." "Sure," he agreed quickly. "Just a—" He stopped when he saw the grin on my face. "Ain't you ever had any larceny in your heart?" "Many times, Sheriff," I admitted. "Let's forget it" * • • I HEARD his car start and back put of the drive. The, ringing of a phone startled me. I took a few seconds' to locate the direction of the sound. I hurried, to the room where Nellie Tweed lay. It was the phone on the desk there. I hurried, to pick it up, because the shrill sound was causing Nellie to stir restlessly. "Yes," I said in a low voice. A soft anxious voice Hid, "Who Is speaking, please?" "My name is Bennett. If you want Miss Tweed, I'm afraid she can't—" "Oh, Mr. Bennett!" I rtcog- nlttd the voice then. "This Is Lucy Dorn. I—1 just heard about Wilbur," (Te Culliton Bicycle Shop We repair all makes Bicycles & Tricycles.
