INC XXII E spent the following morning in some horticultural pursuits in the strange tropical world he had single-handedly created. Elizabeth was grateful' for that. Knowing that cyanide was responsible for the kitten's death had lowered an invisible curtain between Ollie and herself. She would not be able to face him normally for days to come. Yet she could be mistaken, Bill had pointed out grudgingly. The cyanide could have been purchased in Burlington. It could have been stolen from Ollie's supply. Everyone knew he used it for killing the moths for his collection. Elizabeth sighed and watched the steady relentless rain. She did not look forward to going out in it but she would have to. Dr. Appleby had forgotten to bring out medicine and the Avondale • Pharmacy did not make deliveries. S There was nothing lo do but hike jjpto town. Ollie's limousine had i«l^eloped mysterious internal ail- ;m*nts that were beyond his cura- . live powers. In any case she coulc not have brought herself to ask i him to drive her. | She donned slicker and rubbers : and went downstairs. ; Aaron Riggs' black sedan stood 'under the porle cochert. He emerged from Ihe conservatory alone, mopping his face. When he saw Elizabeth he thrust his handkerchief in his breast pockcl almost guiltily. He summoned up one of his glacial smiles. "I suppose those plants require a hot moist heat but it's really suffocating. Most unriealthyl" Hf SUDpcd into his balmacaan 'and stood on the steps taking in great breaths of air. Suddenly h< noticed her raincoat. "Going in to town?" "I was hoping you'd offer me i ride." She explained about the medi cine and he opened th* car doo By KathleeB Briggc with a sort of stilted flourish. "It vould be a pleasure, my dear." Aaron Riggs drove with mad- lening conservatism. Elizabeth was sure she could have' walked aster. H almoF! seemed deliberate. "I worry a great deal about Ollle nd Emily. Mostlj Emily." "She certainly isn't well, 1 ' Elizabeth agreed. • 'I wasn't referring lo her state of health." "No?" "No. I mean ollle." His voice .ook on a confiding tone. "For her to be left alone with Olli« so much. He's far from normal. As nurse you've surely observed that?" TTARPING on the same old ij - theme, she thought. What was behind his constant disparaging references to Ollie's mentality? "But is there such a thing as perfectly normal person?" Riggs laughed. "Now don't be literal, my dear. Of course I've heard that there's only a hairline difference between the sane »nc insane. But Ollie rtrays further from the mean than most of us. 1 "Isn't it just that he's absorbed in his hobbies?" "No. He's absent-minded to dangerous point. Ollie has done things and completely forgotten Ihem laterl There's no accounting for his actions. He's so lost In hi cloud-cuckoo land that * vital ac could b« Immediately forgotten by him while the discovery of * now species of moth or tropica plant would assume a world-shat lering importance In his mind!" They were rumbling over thi_ old wooden bridge. For a seconc the sound of loose planking ant swift-running water dulled th effect of his words. But when Ih car rolled onto the tarvia. thoi full significance hit her. She shlv ered slightly. Could Ollie real) be such a schizophrenic personalit that he would murder and dix milt It from hil mind? "You seem chilled, my dear." "It's just the dampness." "You understand about Ollie?" She sighed, anxious to put an id to the subject "I suppose psy- hiatrists have a name for him." He smiled, "I see you grasp my .eaning. Just a word of caution, ly dear—perhaps unnecessary- lease lock your door at night, ou're much too young and charming to have anything happen to ou." * • • 'HE turned to stare at him and saw an expression in his eyes. ot an expression that she had ver expected to see in the eyes of 'iaron Riggs, pillar of social con- •entionality. He was smiling fatuously. And iis eyes, which had always seemed flint-rock hard >nd speculative, ow seemed to burn with an inner epravity. He reached over and took her .and. Tie pressed it and his own was hot and moist and powerful. "You are cold, my dear. Now I have a delightful library in my iome and a log fire iust waiting or a match. I suggest you have ea with me before setting out upon j'our errand." He had been concentrating on ler; the car had wandered. Elizabeth emitted a soft gasp of fear and he spun the wheel in time to ivoid a tall pine which bordered he road. It gave her a chance to :hrust her hands firmly IB her pockets. "I'm sorry but I have to take some medicine back to Mrs. Steinhart." "Then let me drive you back to Black Firs." The road was a lonely one In this weather and she suspected that Aaron Riggs could be an ugly character when thwarted. "I've arranged to drive back with Dr. .Appleby." She left him in front of the pharmacy. He looked thoughtful. In a minute he'd know she was lying. If Or. Appleby had been calling at Black Firs he could brought the rilled prescription. And Dr. Appleby. ns everyone must know, was attending » state medical convention in Burlington this week. <T« B« Con(ln»e4) Your Geneva Kitchen Planned by Kitchen Experts Why put up with in old outmoded kitchen when it i so easy to own • smart new GENEVA Kitchtn planned jitit MI you want it. roomy b«s* ind wall cab!nets ... a handsome GENEVA Sink m life- lime Stainless Steel,.. md spacious work surfaces, ill arranged lo save YOU time and stcpi.
