"Home of Sudden Service" Blytheville, Ark Phone 3-8191 Just a Corpse at Twilight XDC I POINTED at the kitchen dqor. "I was going to dig out th« slug that almost hit me, but I faces it's not much use. It'll b« from the same .22 rifle." "I suppose so," he said heavily. "Ill g«t it anyway. Horace can dig H out when he comes back from Steel City." "With the kids' rifles and the ballistics reports?" "Wild gops« rifles," he said bleakly. "What kid would want to kill Alice? She wasn't no schoolteacher." He smiled grimly and gazed at the barn. "But you'd think he'd have enough sense to collect all the slug cases, seeing as he was foxy enough to rig that target and all." "Maybe he didn't have time," I laid. " When S- arrived, he had juit killed Alice— she was still warm— and after be took a shot at me he probably got flustered and scooted. Maybe he figured I'd spotted him— I remember hearing .a noise by the barn, but I didn't see anything. He was cautious and smart enough to pick up all the cases from the bullett he ftred at the target- that'* why w* couldn't Bnd any." 1 clicked the brass cases in my hand, as if they were a pair of diet "These he forgot— or didn't have time to collect" The sheriff sighed again. "Yes," he said, "but he'll remember and inaybt' ht'll come back to let •em.". "I thought of that," 1 said. "He riiighl, just to be on the s«f« fide. How about a stake-out?" "Stake-out?" he said softly. "That ain't no boorocrat word. son. You worked oh a police iorce somepiict?", "Never rhihd, Sheriff," I said, smlllni it him. "Just take 017 word that I'M in tmployt <* the Industrial Welfare Commlisloii." "You work for a privatt r{|b.t, I'm Juit tori loaned out now." "Big time, huh?" He was watching me narrowly. "It's a big agency, yes. Tve been with them for 20 years." He took a deep breath. "And you .figure Alice was murdered?" I nodded. "How about planting some empty .22 cases by the barn, sort of decoys?" He gazed at the barn. "Good idea. When Horace gets back, he can hide in the house and keep watch out the kitchen window. 111 bring him out, so there won't be any car around to give him away." Slowly he swung his gaze back to me and caught me in the act of tenderly touching the tape on the back of my neck. "Got a boil?" he asked. I told him what had happened the night before, and showed him the bullet I'd dug from the car seat He rolled it around in his bony, tobacco - stained fingers. "Thirty-thirty," he said. "Probably from a carbine." 'Ambushed." I tried to grin but the memory of the bullet made it a weak attempt His gaze was steady and he said evenly, "This is my county, and I don't like things like that" "The feeling it mutual, I'm sure." 'Some nut," he said. "Some screwball loose with a gun." "Two guns,* I corrected him. A .22 and a 30-30." "You think it tiea together? What happened to you and Alice last night?" •Sheriff," I said, "It happened to me twice." I nodded at the back porch. "Up there yesterday morning and on the road last night Twice is enough. I'm going after him," • • • ' I WASN'T all stirred up about It; I was Just worried and quietly and d«p*rately stared. I couldn't run awiy. becaum I had to stay here and finish my lob for the ataU. And 1 wanted to atop a I third bullet, from being fired. If I could. The sheriff's office and the county jail were housed in a small brick building behind the courthouse a block from the square. The deputy, Horace, was there when I arrived. The slieriff had a bottle on his desk, two glasses, a pitcher of water and a meager supply of ice cubes in a pie tin. As I entered, Horace was saying, "So that's it, Abner. The slug don't match any of the rifles." He saw me. "Hello," he said. "Hi, Horace." He grinned, arid said to the sheriff, "Can I go now, Abner? Joanie's folks asked me for Sunday chicken dinner." "Go ahead, but I .want you back here for a stake-out job." 'Stake-out?" Horace looked bewildered. "Yes," the sheriff said shortly. 'I'll explain later." He glanced at an electric clock on the walL You be back here at 1 o'clock. You can eat plenty of chicken in an hour." "Aw, Abner," Horace protested, "Joanie and me figured going to the ball game in Steel City. It's a double-header, and—" "Not today," the sheriff snapped. "Duty before pleasure.*-' * * * HORACE put on his broad- brimmed . hat and strode out, slamming the door. The gray cat trotted out of a passageway, which I guessed led back to the cells, and rubbed against my legs, arching her back. I leaned down and scratched her ears. The sheriff poured whisky into the two glasses, added ice cube* and water, handed me a glass. 'This ain't like a regular noon- er," he said apologetically, "but It's better than nothing.'' 'Suits me." I held up th« flasa, "Happy days." He downed half his drink In one thirsty swallow, wiped his mouth with the back of a hand, and pointed across the square at the Tweed Funeral Home. "Look at 'em," he sneered, "comln( and going, like dirty vultures. gawk- Ing «t the mortal remalni a Alice.'
