I saw, too, that he was trembling, that his hands, at his sides, were twitching, and that hiilipi, which had suddenly become thin and gray, were quivering slightly. "I would have found out sometime," he said to her at last She made no reply. "But sometime is now." "Yes," she said, and her voice was impersonal. Suddenly he was m complete command at himself. "Do ywi know what I am thinking?" "OI course," she said. "Am I right?" She nodded her head. "You know that too. 1 * "All right," he said, as though agreeing to something, and turned to me.. "Bark, you don't know what this it all about, do you?" "No," I told him. "Thai's good," he said, and there was affection in his voice. "I want you to do me a favor." "Sure," I told him. He left the fire. "I want you to take something to Dad from me when you go. I'll write it out now . . . before I forget it." He went into the study, and I followed him somewhat uncertainly. The whole thing was confusing, and for some obscure reason I felt frightened. Selena followed me, but she stopped in the doorway. Jerry was sitting at the desk in there. The last gray light from the cast came through the window behind him and lighted the room with a dull, unlovely color. He was writing by the time I reached the room, with a swift, racing drive of his pen as though to finish before the light faded entirely. I watched him a minute, conscious of Selena while and glimmering in the dusk of the door behind me. AH at once, with a quick, impatient gesture he crumpled the nate and flung it into a corner. "It's not M important, after all." The rest happened before I knew it. The gun must have been there in the desk drawer, ready to his hand. H« simply put it up to his head and pulled the trigger. • • • I WAS aware that Selena was moving past me. She walked to the desk slowly but without uncertainty, and her face was perfectly quiet, the face of an angel who knows neither sorrow nor loss nor death nor anything else that went echoing up and down the valley and came back flatly from the face of the mesa behind and above me. She did not come. I put the car in gear arid rolled slowly down the road toward tht desert and LOB Palos, 70 miles away. The rest of it isn't Important, though it was tedious enough, and long before the formalities with the sheriff and the under- ( taker were over the numbness that had got me as far as. Los Palos without agony had worn off. The sheriff went back with some of his men to try to find Selena, but she wasn't there, and he told me the house was just as I had left it. He managed to make me admit that Jerry hadn't been entirely happy with hia wife, and that seemed to satisfy him and the coroner's jury. There wasn't a plane reservation to be had, and anyway it was a half day's travel to the nearest air- quickens the pulse of living men and women. She placed her ] P" 1 '. !0 ,' * lm P'?

The next instant she was across the room and stooping WHEN I had finished telling the story 1 felt tired and empty of all emotion. Dr. Lister did not speak foi to pick up the crumpled note in the corner. I watched her take it up and go out of the room A ' a lon * time moment later I heard the front! He put his palms down flat on the table, stood up, and blew out the stump of the candle. "It does door open and close again. OF course, I did all the things that you think of to do. He was dead, but I felt his heart to make sure. Some cheaply melodramatic instinct made me wrap up th« gun fn my handkerchief; afterwards 1 was glad I'd done so, It saved a lot of trouble with the sheriff. I carried his body into my own room, laid it out on my bed. There was nothing else lo do till morning; not seem to prove anything," he said, and sal down again. "Do you believe there is some connection between all the things you have told me?" I studied for a minute, trying to find a way to give him the feeling that I had. "Yes. I'm sure there is. I know there is something behind the whole business because I know that Jerry found out what il is. That's why he that long and twisted road into shot himself." Los Palos would b« undecipher- !
