XV7.H pARSONS was silent a moment, -*- rolling the dead cigar in the corner ot his mouth. "Well, Mr. Jones, is Mrs. LeNormand a foreigner?" The question took me by surprise- "I don't know. You must have the answer. Don't you always take down everything about z. person in a case like this? Jerry and I practically had to list the fillings in our teeth," "We asked her." He was frovminR. "We asked her a dozen times. All she would tell us was that she didn't have a family or any relatives anyplace. She wouldn't even trust us with her maiden name." "And naturally you wouldn't take advantage of her in her bereavement." "Listen," he said, and from his hard stare at me I saw my remark had not pleased him, "this case is dynamite. I can go so far, and then the whole university will be down on my neck." "All right I spoke out of turn." "You did. Anyway, forget it. Maybe you can find out what we want to know. Who is she and where did she come from?" "If she wouldn't tell you she . probably won't tell me." "That's not what I mean You've admitted that Mr. Lister is in love with her. If anybody will know, he's the fella." "Do you want mt to pla/ stool tm*m M- Stan W. OMrifeM k| MIC pigeon on my best friend?" He grunted. "Use your bead, Mr. Jones. I've got to have that information, and how I get it won't make any difference if she's not mixed up in this thing." 'But all the same I can't get il Tor you. I doubt if Jerry himself knows. At least, he's never said anything to me." 'So he doesn't know either," Parsons tone was not surprised. 'Well, well, well!" "Surely," I suggested, "even if she wouldn't answer your questions you could find out about it in other ways." 'We're not as dumb as oops are supposed to be, Mr. Jones. We've traced a lot of tftings. Maybe later I'll have to tell you a little about that. Right now I want to see if we can get at this thing from another angle." "If I can help you—" I said humbly. "Riflht." His tone was brisker. "About this strangeness of Mrs. LeNormand's. This feeling you have that she's a foreigner. Assuming for a minute that she isn't, would you say, that she came from a definite social class?" t • • THE question puzzled me, like everything else connected with Selena. Nothing about her seemed to get into conventional pigeonholes. "She has a good mind. My guess is that her family was probably professional. Her father might have been a lawyer, or a doctor or maybe a professor." The minute I'd mentioned \he professor idea 1 felt sorry Suppose it started him off on that whole business of Normand's row with his fellow scientists? But Parsons was apparently talking about something else. "Quite a while ago," he began. "I mentioned that wt'd cv«n gone so far as to look for some out- tider, some stranger, on th« night of the crime. When we couldn't find one 1 figured we better check back on a few other things. Now in my experience, Mr. Jones, a murder is a thing that doesn't just happen out of a clear sky. By that I mean, if you look close enough you'll discover a whole lot of little things, straws in the wind,, you might say, coming ahead of it. Usually you can uncover some of things by keeping your ears open. But there wasn't any real gossip. Nobody even thought there was any bad blood between them. Sometimes, too, in my experience, some of these things that come ffhead of a murder go so far as to get into the police records." He opened the big black ledger in front of him. "So Cap Hanlon and I went through the blotter book for a long ways jack." FOR the life of me I couldn't decide what this was leading up to. "Early In August there was a disappearance in this town. And the person that disappeared was a woman." He stopped speaking and began to fiddle with his pencil. "I'm going to tell you the whole story because it's the only way I can get the information I need. But 1 want you not to interrupt me, and I want you to ive me your word of honor as a gentleman that whit I have to say will go no further. You're not to speak a word of it to anyone. Okay?" I gave him my word. Keeping it turned out to be the hardest job I ever tackled in my lift. Parsons was looking grave and a little doubtful, but he went on finally. "About eight o'clock in the evening, Aug. 7, a tourist named Jamison, Stewart Jamison, stopped up by the corner filling station to get some ga*. Hi was driving on old Ford, a beat-up half-ton pickup like they got on farms sometimes. With him was his wife and their daughter. It was the daughter that disappeared." I (T* B« Continued) "Too bad I can't help with the house cleaning—but you realize how desperate I am, with only 10 day* to fini*h my income tax return!"
