Her cheetu were fliubed ind her ffft held a hot shining ight She b«g«n to talk in i tow Jreary voice. "It's all over now," she »ald, •and I'm glad. Alice deserved to die. because she was taking Wilour away from me—he was all I had left after Doyle was killed. I think 1 was rather clever I knew there had been complaints about boys shooting in the woods near Alice's house, and so 1 made a target and took it there. I fired a few shots »t it, collected the empty cases, so that they couldnt be traced to my rifle. Then I went down to the barn where 1 could aec the house. I saw Alice behind the kitchen window and 1 shot her I'm a good shot, you know. I wanted to go inside and make certain that she was dead, but right then you arrived, Mr. Bennett. I heard jour ear OB the drive and I waited. You came around the back ot the houae an suddenly that I waa frightened —I was ture that you had «een me. But I hid behind the barn, watching, and when you didnt eome looking tor me right away I thought that you wen pretending you hadnt Men me, ao that you could trap me. When you went up on the back porch, I fired at you, and I knew that t had missed you. And I did another foolish thing; t forgot to pick up the.empty cartridge eases. But I didn't dare go back—it was too risky." 1 kept quiet. "It was all your fault, Mr. Ijen- nett." she said, still staring at the celling, "because last Friday you told Wilbur about the autopsy. When Wilbur told me, 1 knew be wa* fri«hteo«d-and why You IM, he refused to tot me help with Frank Oiborn, and that Wat ttrange. 1 always helped him So —did to Frank, and he burned it all in the incinerator. I guessed then that he had poisoned Frank, because 1 was there that night hen Wilbur was mating the drinks—and I had missed the cyanide Wilbur bad bought to kill the rats around here. I was horrified, but I didn't blame him too much. He was terribly in debt, and if he married Alice her money would save him. That's all he wanted ot Alice—her money. He didn't love her. I said carefully, "Why did you try to kill me?" "Because I was afraid at you. I was certain that you had seen me at Alice's house. When you brought Wilbur home in that disgraceful condition, you looked at me suspiciously. You suspected me—1 saw it in your eyes—and I decided to try again. I saw you go across the square to the inn. I went to the aqic, got Father's old deer rifle and »onw shells. My .12 was not heavy enough, and I wanted to make certain. After Wilbur was in bed I waited until you left the inn. 1 followed you long enough to be sure you were going back to Steel City. Then I circled by a side road to the highway.Intersection, when I knew you'd have to stop. But even wtth the mooollfht I couldnt see you clearly, and I knew I'd missed again." Nellie Tweed Mid, "You saw me out there, didn't you?" I hated to tell her. "No, I didnt see you out there. I never connected you with any of this until tonight, not until a little while ago, when t saw the gray cat hair on jour Jeans," ...'•'•.• • ' • • SHE sighed, a sibilant lound in the quiet room. "Ob, the cat." "You won then again, two ten after you shot AUct, on Sunday night, when you broke Into the jail office snd took your oul- ~ bullet that killed Alice." I paused watching her. and when 5he didnt speak or move. I added. That cat has been in only two places—at Alice Osborn's house, and at the jail. Her hair will match the hair on your ieans." I was glad that Sheriff Abner Cornwallis came in lust then If he hadn't 1 would have clipped her behind the ear. just to stoo the godawful screaming. • • • THE sheriff applied alcohol to my lacerated wrist followed by a liberal smearing of a salve smell- Ing strongly of tar With surprising deftness he had wrapped the wrist with gauze and secured it with tape. I still hadnt had any dinner, but the Scotch and water befon me was comforting. 1 grinned at the sheriff and nodded at bis glass. "I know about your noon- en and sundowners, but what do you call that — your night- capper?" "No." be said seriously, "this at my bedtimer." "I see. And what do you call the one after breakfastT" "That's my day-starter." Lucy Dora and Dr. Jerry Martingale appeared in the doorway. They were holding bands and Lucy's eyes held a happy UgM. Dr. Martingale said to Van Dora, "Chief, I'd like you to meet Mia* Lucy Dom." ' Van Horn got heavily to bis feet and made a slight bow. The young doctor nodded a* me. Lucy's eyes clouded as they met mine. Then she smiled. "We've met, Jerry. Mr. Bennett snd 1 are old friends." "Yes," I said. "Don't forget that book you promised me." "t won't" Suddenly sue stopped smiling, and she added gravely, "I—1 want to thank yoai for—for everything." 1 was puszled for a moment, snd then I realized that she was referring to Dr. Richard Jarrett, the man she had thought she loved Maybe, in a way, 1 had (reed her of that, and it gave me a small glow, to thins that per- Mpa my sojourn in beech Tree had not resulted entirely in tragedy. .
