"Child, why don't you let this Jo for today? I know my old bones arc not hurting half as much as (four young ones." Elizabeth managed a chuckle. "If I keep busy I won't have time to think about them." Or other un- matters, she added inwardly. The pale dry lips curved but the eyes remained reflective. I "Beth, what was the report from Ihe autopsy?" Elizabeth frowned and pretended to be very engrossed v;ith changing the bod linen. How did the old lady know about the autopsy? "I don'l think there's been a report/' she Hod. "You know, Beth, when people are ill for a long time they become unusually discerning." Still Elizabeth kept quiet and the old voice went on, wavering: "I'm aware that news came from Burlington yesterday. No one has jaid anything. But their very reticence has told me. I didn't even pry it out of Ollie though I'm sure 1 could have. Poor boy, he has quite enotigh on his hands with his niece and nephews," "You are perceptive." Klizabelh admitted then. "That same perception must h?ve told you wha the autopsy report was," "That poor Courlney was murdered?" "Yes." The old lady sipped her glass of papaya juice thoughtfully. "It was someone in this house, Beth." • i • • r PHE accusation was so definite, so decisively final. Elizabeth ried to make her next words sound light but they caught in her throat. "Well, it wasn't you or me or Bill Devanter." "Why not Bill? Do you know where he was that night?" Caught off guard, Elizabeth was lorrificd. "But he didn't even <now Mr. Benson! I'm sure he was it the lumbc. camp all evening!" The dark old eyes twinkled. "I wns teasing. I'm sorry. You must forgive an old woman who has little to amuse her. It wasn't Bill.' Suddenly Elizabeth felt close to iears. She managed a weak smile and said briskly, "Ml go do\yn for your tray; try to have a little' nap." She almost bumped into Mrs. Murphey outside the door. The Irish cook had a mystified suspicions look that was puzzling and her brogue, under the stress ol emotion, had become as thick as fog. "Ah, Miss, I was on my way to fetch you." "Something wrong?" . "Wrong or right, I can't say but it's going to cause a to-do In this household—the package I mean. "Package?" "Aye, Miss. That young man left it for you minutes ago. Winked at me, he did en' said, 'Here's some spice for your kitchen, my gooc woman' and druv off fast." She flushed with Ill-concealed pleasure "There's some in this house as don' 1 care for Mr. Devanter, but I'm no' one." "Nor I," Elizabeth seconded "What's in the package, s bomb?' "A bonib to this house if it': what I think." She followed Elizabeth through the hish-ceilingcd gloomy pantry into tha kitchen. "There it REPAIR SERVICE A 11 appliances: refrigerators, freezers, ranges, 'and washers Kadlos and small appliances. All our work Is guaranteed. | Adams Appliance Co. Z near the stove to keep warm." ""he woven basket had a corsage n top made of fir sprigs, tiny ine cones and holly berries. There ras a brief not* attached: "Not rchids but it'll last longer. From he inmates of Park Camp No. 1." Elizabeth opened the basket. A ritten looked up at her with soul- ul green eyes and Mrs. Murphey r>ll on it with cries of delight. 'Ah the darlin' creature! Black as the divil's heart he is!" Eli7.abelh stared, torn between aughler and dismay. "Isn't that ike a man? How on earth can I :eep a cat!" " 'Tis goin' to take a bit of doin'. Mister Ollie hates cats. We had one mce and ft got into his bug col- ection. He was all for drownin' t. Right ovick I gave it to one of he delivery boys. As though one Bitten wasn't worth a million of hem nasty bugs of his!'! she added contemptuously. "Yes, but Tm employed here just as you are, Mrs. Murphey, and we really have no right to ceep pets." "He's had things his way loo long. We'll keep it in the kitchen, le seldom comes in here—gives me my orders while he's eatin" break- :ast and I write 'em down." She began to feed the kitten scraps 'rom the icebox. • * * A FTER luncheoi, Elizabeth found tv Ollie wailing for her nt Ihe foot of the slairs. His glasses iileamctl enigmatically and it was impossible to read his expression but she felt asOguilty as an escaped prisoner. 'I've been waiting for you, Mis- fie." 'I—I know what you're going to say . . ." She waj thinking of the kitten. Ollie beamed at her. "So you haven't forgotten my promise?" "Forgotten?" 'About the mangoes. They're ripe now and we'll enjoy them together. Just the two of us-r-the others needn't know our little secret. 1 * She was so relieved tbat she let Ollie lead her into the solarium and lock the door behind them before she knew what was happening.
