When 1 turned I aaw that Nellie Tweed was awake and witcnjnjf tne lilently. I moved to the leather chair and sat down.

I thought of Alice dbon'i eat, toe cat I'd •d I that she would be happy In her Dew home at the county jail. Carefully I picked the hairs from the flannel, and then leaned back again. She was lying on ber side facing me, her head resting on one upraised arm. In the sweater and blue jeans and under the soft light she was a pleasing and almost youthful fight. Maybe the absence of her dark-rimmed glasses added to the illusion. "He uced my gun," she said, and her voice broke, "I—I hate that." "Boot blame yourself." I said. She sighed deeply, turned on her beck and gazed at the ceiling. • • • WILBUR must have taken the gun from her room, she said, from the closet where she kept it Her father had given It to her yean ago, when she was 12 yean old, because she liked to hunt In the woods with him. A rifle to a kid in the woods, I had learned, was as common as coaster wagons and doll .buggies were to kids in more urban areas. I fazed at hex, .at the soft shadowed planes of her face, and at her rather angular body clad n the sweater and the blue jeans. There was a little dried mud on one cuff of the teina—and I saw something else Slowly I «tt up, feeling a kind of cold numbness n the back of my brain. I leaned lorward. peering Intently, and I inew that I was not mistaken. On one leg of the leans, )uat above the ankle, there was a matted clutter of gray cat hairs. I said softly, "You killed Alice, «dnt you?" A kind of dreaminem was IB her tyet. She fated at the ceiling and spoke la a itnf-soof voice. "What did you say?" TeU ne about It, Nellie • I said Tell me bow you killed Alice, because you cquldn't bear M have ber marry Wllbut.

Tell me all about it Nellie." She turned her head and now her gaze was direct and sane. "Whatever are you talking about, Mr. Bennett?" she asked calmly. "Would you mind repeating what you lust said?" "You heard me," I said wtth sudden harshness. I warded her off with a (ore- arm and she stumbled past me and almost fell. She whirled and came for me again and the wildcat look was in her eyes Fingernails raked my cheek and (or a couple of seconds I had my hand* full just trying to save my eyes. She was amazingly strong and fought savagely and silently, tt Is embarrassing and degrading to be forced to struggle ohysically with a woman In anger, and I remembered similar previous encounters with distaste and shame. But sometimes, like now. it cant be helped, and I held her ofl, hoping that she would give up. But she didn't. Quickly and cunningly she twisted from my grasp.
