Or the remains of a watch, for it now was a haltered mass of metal. Slarfen stooped to pick il up, but I grabbed his shoulder. "Better not touch anything," I said, "before the police get here.' He shot me a who-nre-you-to- give-orders look, but he straightened up without touching (he watch. Damon t said, snapping oft his torch, "Thai's Amos Wai-burton's v/atch, nil right. I saw him fiddling with it in the office the oilier day." -,-^t was then decided that Cra- "ilRrt and Dum on I would remain with the body. Sladen, Sally and I were to go buck to the house where Slacien would call the police. Cravaiti made these arrangements and I was in no position to interfere. Nonetheless. I woulc rather have stayed with Cravalh The Ihree of us negotiated that sterp climb back to Windovcr anc scarcely a word was said on (he way. At the house. Sladen disappeared immediately lo do his phoning and Sally, went upstairs to m form Eve \Vhceicr of the Ti'.e police cnmc finally ; kL-pi m the background. Marston Cravalh and Duinonl talked lo ;V.2in briefly in the living room and went with them while, I sup posed, the officers examined thi ground at the end of the Peacock Path and the medical examine viewed the body on the rocks. A nn mie oaid the slightest attention o me, I slipped up to my room, nd wailed. Cravath came around o'clock. With him was th« gaunt woman •ho'd talked to him slightly like Dutch aunt on the grounds. She iidn't look so gaunt now, fully russed in respectable and elderly 'lack. But her »yes were sharp Behind steel-rimmed spec*. * * * DR Ihe second tim« I walked into Cravath'* trophy-littered anclum. The gaunt woman *n- conccd herself immediately upon a stratghtbacked chair. She put ier feet together and assumed a no-nonsense expression which, I bought, practically came natural o her. Cravalh said, without any attempt to explain why I, the atcst of th'e guests, should be with im in his holy-of-holies at such - lime, "Mrs. Ring—Mr. Orth. Mrs. King has something to say, Orlh." I nodded to her, but interposed 'What's the police verdict, so far? 1 Cravath gestured impatiently 'Either accident or suicide, they don't know which. There'll be an inquest, however. But I'm certain"—all at once though, despite iiis florulness ;uid fullness of face Marston Cravalh looked haggar< and old—"that they'll bring in verdict of accidental death," He said* it queerly, like a man whose lips were all set to whistl past a graveyard. And the Rin; woman, prim on her uncomfort nble chair, seemed to catch th queerness in bis voice, even as dirt myself. She uttered a kind o subdued, and respectable, snort, "Accident?" Her mouth curle< 'I don't believe it," Cravalh smiled, "Mrs. Ring is woman of definite opinions. She been here . . . how many years i it, Ring?" "Forly-one," Mrs. Rifig sru< "And tliis isn'l opinion. 1 kno 1 what I raw." She paused, as if t let that weighty announccme sinl; in. "I'm a noor slftfioeor an si mgnt i aian'i sleep any better an I usually do. 1 woke up \n ie night. Don't ask me what time was, because 1 didn't look. Well, got up and sat at the window. 'he moon kept popping in and out rom behind clouds. It was out 'hen I saw the man climb the ence. It waa Ames Warburton, of ours*, but I didn't recgonize him hen. He got onto that little strip f ground between the fence and ie cliff. He look a step or two orward and bent clown. Then, ust as he was straightening up the —the thing pushed him over the UfT." "Thin*? What thing?" • * * "'HE housekeeper shrugged. "How should I know? But whatever t was, H Memed to sort o< carry dr. Warburton In front of rt. I aw him slugger and throw out his lands, as If he were trying to grab omething and hold himself back. But there wasn't anything to grab. And he was too close to the edge. Ie just . . . went over." •Pushed?" I put in. *<Y«u t r« snre about that, Mrs. Ring?" She regarded me bleakly through »T specs. "I'm sure about nothing, young man. I'm only telling you how it seemed to me. But you're probably thinking that Mr. Warburton stumbled." She was even sharper than ooked. I had be«n thinking something like that. "Well, h« didn't It was too quick, too—er, violent. I believe that something either pushed or struck him, hard. And that," she compressed thin lips, "is everything I can toll you." "I take it," I pursued, somewhat senselessly, "that you didn't see this thing that struck him. I mean, you couldn't give us an idea about what it was." "1 didn't see it or I would have told you what it was," That settled me, temporarily. Cravalh fumed. "Humph! What was Ihe boy doing oul there at thru Xirne ol night?" Mrs. Ring evidently considered Ihis unworthy of reply.
