"1 want to tell you about the daughter. Luella — Luella Jamison. The Jamisons live in South Carolina, They've got a farm down there, and they're dirt poor. Cap says the car was a wreck on wheels- But he says they seemed kind of a high type, for all that. They were clean j and nice-spoken. The daughter was an idiot." The only way to describe my feeling is to say it was iiite the click of the latch on a door closing behind you. "The way it happened," Par- ions continued, "was like this.j Mrs. Jamison got out of the car, and got her daughter out, to go to the rest room. Mr. Jamison was checking the tires. The ladies' room at the place is just big enough for one person at a time. So Mrs. Jamison fixed up Luella first, and then she led her out and put her hands on one of the uprights of the latticework and told her to hold on to it. Then she went in herself, and when she came out, the girl was gone. "I better lell you a little of what Cap and I found out about Luella. She'd been an idiot from birth. She Was nearly six before they could teach her how to walk, and she never did learn how to dress herself, or feed herself. And furthermore, she couldn't oven speak. 'She used just to make a few little noises sometimes,' her mother told me. None of the doclors in their parl of the world could do a thing for her, and naturally it was pretty tough on the Jamisons, she being the child of their old age and all, and an only child at thai. They hadn't gol married till Mrs. Jamison was way over 40, and they hadn't expected to have any children. They never used to worry about leaving her by herself at the farm; 11 they both had to be away for a while, they'd latch the door to her room and leave her sitting m her chair. Mealtimes they would have her at the table, and Mrs. Jamison would feed her. There's no doubt about their both loving her. "I'M telling jou all this » you'll get the picture of these people. I must say I liked them. Both good Anglo-Saxon stock from away back. He told me his great-grandfather was a famous scientist, .or mathematician, or some such thing. He had a couple of books the old boy wrote more than 100 years ago." Parsons smiled apologetically. "Well, came some of that farm prosperity. The Jamisons were cut in for a slice of it. They decided to use the money on Luella. They wrote a lot of famous doctors up north about her :ase. Most of them answered that it didn't sound as u" anything could be done, but one man wrote and said U they could get her up to him he'd make an examination and charge them his minimum fee." He picked up a folder from among his papers and glanced into it thoughtfully. There seemed to be half a dozen photographs in it "The girl never turned up," he said. "I won't go into all the places we looked and state troopers were having a license checkup down the road and they'd have noticed anything as out of the way as a car with some guy in it who'd picked up a feeble minded girl by mistake. Now I want you to look at the girl in this picture." He handed me what turned out to be an enlarged snapshot of the front of a farmhouse. Two people were sitting In rocking chairs on the front porch. One was a spare, almost gaunt woman in her 60's, with the thin hair pulled up from her ears and piled in an old-fashioned coiffure on the top of her head. • • * THE other figure took my eye at once; I was hardly aware of the rest of the picture at first It was a girl—Luella. of course. Even if no one had told me she was an idiot, 1 could have guessed it after one glance. Everything about her was mindless, vacant, not human. I looked at her face a long time. The eye* were the same distance apart a* Selena's, The hair was apparently darker, but the porch was in shadow. 1 pointed thai out to Parsons. He merely observed that the color of a person's hair was one of the least permanent things in the world. "What do you think, leaviig the hair color out of it for the moment?" I said, "I don't know. It's in- co^ceivable that it could be Selena. In a general way, I suppose this girl does look something' like her. There must b* something mnre up ycur sleeve than this. What about fingerprints?" He grinned at me. "You might make a detective someday. I've got Mrs. LeNormand's, of course. But I haven't got Luella Ja.mJ- son'4 and I can't get them. Mrs. Jamison is too good a housekeeper." He looked at me a moment then and said, "Luella Jamison disappeared the evening of Aug. 7. On Aug. 9, at 10:30 in the morning, Joe Peters over at the county building in New Zion issued a marriage license to one Walter R. LeNormand of England, and a certain Selena Smith, Smith!" There was contemptuous suspicion in the way he said it. ''Selena Smith, of Lafayette, Okla. Aged 21, And there isn't any Lafayette. Okla." (To fit Continued) •i juit re-did the seat covers!"
