Dedd, Mead A C XX iTT was frightening to know I'd have to live with the story of Luella Jamison, and thipk about it every time I looked at Selena, and never be entirely sure U wasn't true. "Of course," Parsons was saying, "I've tried to trace LeNor- mancl's ever being seen with Mrs LeNormand before Aug. 7. And na one that I can find ever saw her until the ninth. LeNor- mand didn't even leave town except once, and that was on the 10th. He took his car out of the garage about 7, and drove north along Route 72. I don't know where he went or what he did, and I can't find out." "Did they get married in New Zion?" I asked him. "No. A man named Willetts. a jus lire of the peace, married them. He lives on the Colie^e- ville turnpike about five miles this fide of Zion." He paused to grunt and then went on. "His story agrees with Joe's, over at the county building, in one respect. It was raining on the ninth, and both of them remember that Mrs. LeNormand was wearing an old trench coat that was too long in the sleeves for her And there was a trenrh coat in LeNormanri's closet when he went through his things." "What about their cook?" 1 a '?od him. He grinned. "Bc-ssic! She i ^'licd rno/o than all the rest of ; " people in this case put lo- ;,j;her. The trouble was. she was no in Hampton till the 15th, v shin? her cousins. LeNormand finve her the first two weeks in the month for her annual vacation. When she got back, she says. Mrs. LeNormand was already there." There was a long silence while he looked at mi with a smile oo illivm M. SIMM Ml. Cittritattd fcj NEA his face and waited for me to say something. "Mr. Parsons," I said finally. "I never knew that detectives would talk so frankly. But I don't quite see how 1 can help you, or what this proves." "There aren't any secrets in this case. I don't suspect anybody because, I can prove that nobody I know of at the present time was anywhere near that observatory when LeNormand was killed. You two were the closest, and I can't find a reason in the world why either of you should v/ant (o do a thing like that. I'm taking President Murray's word for it that neither of you knew about Mrs. LeNor- mand before that night." "We didn't." I assured him. • • • HE nodded. "Now I want you to think carefully once again: do you remember anything Mrs. Le- Normand ever said that would give a clue to her past?" "No," I told him. "I've begun to notice that she never talks about anything that happened before . . before last month." "Get this straight," Parsons said, "1 don't suspect her, personally, (or a moment. She was in the house when it happened, according to Bessie's own testimony. But there's a mystery about her 1 can'l clear up." He thanked me and stood up. 1 gathered that was my cue to leave, but I had one more question I had to ask him. "Mr. Parsons," I said, "you've told me a lot of things baring on why Professor LeNormand was killed—" "Proving," he said quickly, "that I can't figure out why he was killed. Or who killed him." "Yes." I said. "But do you know how he was killed?" "Well," he said, "half the fac ulty here has been working on that The buriu were aot made by fire or,by chemicals, but some sort of rays." "Radioactivity?" T asked him. He scowled. "Yes and no. They tell me they can produce burns something like that, only small, down in the physics lab in the hush-hush section. But one of them went over the chair where LeNormand was sitting with a Geiger counter, and couldn't tune in a thing. I didn't bother to order an exhumation after that. The guy said other places, with bigger equipment, could produce bigger burns." • * * .TERRY'S family united in their opposition to his marriage and did little to make his life tolerable. They grumbled and pleaded with him in groups and severally. The worst of the lot v/as his Unce Horatio Delavan, a little dried-up man who walked in on us unannounced one night. Jerry met him at the door. "Hello, Uncle Horry." "Good evening, Jeremiah. I should like to have a word with you." I could see that Jerry didn't expect it to be a matter of one word, but he swallowed something that was on the tip of his tongue and asked the old boy to sit down. I retired to the bedroom but I didn't close the door. "Jeremiah," said Uncle Horry'a voice, "I won't beat about the bush, my boy. I want to talk to you about your—er—abrupt marriage to this woman." "My marriage to Mrs. LeNor- mand, Uncle .Horry. Pleast remember her name. It'll help." "Very good. This Mrs LeNor- mand. Your aunt Mabel and I are very much distressed, mj boy, very distressed indeed." Jerry's voice was ominously calm. "I'm sorry about that, Uncle Horry. I don't believe there i? anything to be distressed about." "Convention, Jeremiah. And this murder case. You are both implicated, innocently, I grant. But people will talk." "It seems to me wholly my own affair, uncle. Dad and I understand each other, and that seems to be all that matters."
