In front of him waa a large black entry book of some sort and a pile of papers. He looked up as I came in- waved a hand in a gesture of •welcome, and remarked, past his 1 cigar, "Sit down. With you in a second." Finally he straightened up, pulled a couple of fresh cigars from his pocket, thrust one of them toward me, and then, seeing my pipe, retracted it "Mr. Jones," he snid finally, "I'm going to be frank with you. This js just between us two." "1 won't repeat a word of It." "All right." And then, wilh emphasis he added, "Not even ' to Mr. Lister—of Mrs. LeNor- manci." I nodded. "The fact is, I haven't got to first base with this case. I don't Vno-.v any more than I did four weeks ago, except that everybody's story seems to be straight. I can't find a single clue or a single fact to go on. I haven't even been able to find a single person who saw a stranger on the campua that night" His manner was certainly disarming He had me on his side, whatever M »«, akwdj. H, WIKkim M. Slovit III. DfitrilnM bf HI* "Now," he went on, "when I get stuck like this on what III call the physical side of a case — what you'd say were clues — I try to figure on the thing from another angle. And that's the characters of the people in it. Psychology, you'd call it, and motive." He looked at me pretty sharply, but though I'd likely have given away any thought I had, I didn't have one. "Motive," he went on, "is usually easy to spot. Money first, and then women. Thert are others, like hate and revenge, you hardly ever run into them unless there's a maniac somewhere." "None of these fit." He continued. "Money, c«r- tainiy not. He had nothing besides his salary and a $5,000 lUe insurance policy. And apparently he had no professional jealousy to deal with in his work. So I figured out it must be that the motive revolved around some woman." I began to sec whert h* was headed, and the palms of my hands started to sweat 'And the only woman," he went on inexorably, "is Mrs. Le- Normand." I didn't say anything, so after a time he asked, "What do you think about her?" I took a moment to frame in answer to that one. "She's inlel- lijjent, and quiet, and she knows her own mind ..." I floundered and stopped. Parsons took a long pull at his cigar. "Mr. Jones, you've used some funny words for a young man talking about a pretty woman. I'd say you didn't like Mrs. LeNormand much. Right?" "Yes," I admitted. HE leaned forward earnest ly. " I want to >sk you next is something that could be mi sun tier stood Before 1 say it want * t*il »ou Out I ihlafc you're okay. I mean, I Hke you and maybe I understand a little something of the spot you're in. 3o don't go thinking I mean what [ don't mean." "All right," I said. "Go ahead and ask." "Are you sure you aren't jealous?" I got red and then laughed. "I guess it might be fair to say this: Jerry and I grew up together. We've been a close corporation for 10 years or so. Now ..." I was saying too rduch. "Well,** he said., "you've been honest with me. And don't think I wouldn't have known if you'd been lying." He tapped the pile of papers in front of him "I've got a complete file her on what all three of you have been doing ever since you left town." He gave me a sharp glance. "I'm a policeman. I've got to know things like that. Don't get sore." "I'm not sore." But it did make me angry to realize that we'd been spied on all the weeks sine* LeNormand had died. "What I'm after it why you don't like Mrs. LeNormand. That interests me a lot more, frankly, than why Mr. Lister is in love with her." I could, of course, have answered instantly. "I don't like Selena because I am afraid ol her," hut that wouldn't have made sense. So I said, "I think, as near as I can put it, I don't trust her." MY answer seemed to excite him. He studied me carefully a moment and said quietly, "You don't trust her. Can you tell me what she docs that gl*es you the feeling of distrust?" "You've asked me a hard quei- tion," I told him. "I've been thinking about it for weeks and I can't decide. It's no special time and no special thine- She asks the strangest things, some' times. And if she has a sense of humor, it's not like other people's. She strikes me as cold- blooded." He was watching me intently and nodding hia head at each statement "I tell you what she's like," I went on. "She's lik« a foreigner '' iT* I \ , * V® | 'WlKfl "I'm warning you,, young man—If you can t cure my gout I'm not even going to tell you my other ailments! no, you don't!
