Death in the Sierras By Deri* xvn ROBERTS lomed to ,..ary Curtis and resumed jhta »tor7. "You drov« quite faat ^'through th« mounlairis after l««v- kij th* Springs and suddenly you *aw « tree lying across the road. ^Yoii didn*t 5tOf>, but drove 'your yrar over the tree. I doubt though ti jou'd have been harmed, had yow stopped, if that right, Mrs. Brown ley?" Al Mrs. Brownley hesitated, Professor Ordell stood and pointed at her. "There's yo\ir killer, Dave. I've been watching her—she's wearing a wig and she's not a woman, but a man!" With that he snatched at the hair. The hat and wig came oft as the officers seized the professor. Before us stood Officer Wallace, in woman's clothes. Makeup, including eyeshadow, rouge and lipstick along with the wig. had cleverly concealed his identity. "UTiy, you were tfie ollicer that stopped me at Carquinez! No wonder you kept out of rny-way and pretended not to recognize me here!" 1 said hoarsely. "You arid Mr. .lames are the murderers!" muttered Rhumba. , I shuddered as I thought now ? Wallace bad almost trapped mt on the road with the fallen tree. "You liclievcd thai you could frighten her into going Iwck to San Frnncisco, was that it. Wallace?" asked David. "Ye?." said l.hc olliccr tn shame. "You fooled us completely," admitted Uavid. "I'll say," muttered Duncan. "I was a sap not to have thought of it nelure I dul. I remembered only llns morning that you do female impi-r.ona'.ionf. 1 remembered >our stunt at the Bencnt last year and I got to thinking about you whe.i 1 hcnrd over the car radio that you v-'ere misstng (rom your pcHrol route." "1 miglit as well make a clean breast of it." Wallace said thor oiujhly ashamed. "I thought tha rf would be «asy to make up lo ook like the Curtis woman because 1 had seen her at Slate ieadquarters in Sacramento. I heard the story of the letters and read about the buried treasure and 1 decided to have a fling at it and get back on my beat before : was missed. I'd been transferred Tom the Carquinez territory to his stretch. I was on that motorcycle *;.ile you and Marguard were on the cut-oft to Blue Valley. But 1 knew nothing about the murder. After I rode through orscshoe Springs on my motorcycle, I went on for about five miles. Then I got off and wheeled the machine into the woods." David and Duncan exchanged glances. "Then I changed to these togs. [ didn't bolhei to put on any make-up because H was so dark, I decided to put a tree »cross the road to stop Miss Curtis whom 1 thought was Elsie Martinson. ! picked out a small tree and got the ax from my machine and was just eady to slarl chopping when I heard a horse running. I dodged back into tlic brush as horse and rider went by A little beyond where I stood the rider turned the horse down the mountain toward Gold t.akc." 'And they came In the gate pretty fast, loo," said old .led Downy who had been cupping his hands carefully over his bad ea in order to miss nothing "Said he'd been chased by a bandit or something, I couldn't riglltly hear." "Who was riding that horse?' asked Mrs. James in a strained frightened tone. "Do you !\rar me? Who was riding that horse?" "It was. . . ." He was interrupted by the terrible report of a revolver which filled the cave with echoing repercussions of death. The tall foim of the Professor crumped s\\iflly and silcutly lo the gravel and rock Hour of the cave Television- Tonite, Tomorrow W'MCT. Memphis.

"Where did he get lh;it gun?" .sked Duncan. "We slipped up there," David replied, as he and Duncan left the ave following the stretcher. "I'll bet lie picked it up at the foot of hat clifT where we found James ml the dog. Thank goodness he didn't hurt anyone with it. He r'Ouldn'l have minded killing any- 'Ody, only he gambled that by as- j suniin# hi.s charming and peda- ! gogic manner he would fool us all. S And he almost did." i Officer Marguard and Bob car- ' ricd Mrs. Ordell to the Lodge. Shi ; was admirably calm and seemen almost relieved that the whole j alTair had ended as it had. 1 JHE had lived in constant fear of her husband. Behind a charming exterior and within an able mind the Professor's cruel, self-centered, ruthless character was cleverly hidden. To his students in cl.Tssrooms at the University he was a brilliant lecturer. To Lhe world he WPS a charming member of the intelligentsia. But to his wife and to Hob, his brother, was quite different, : ,imos was Ordcll's first cousin anil ijob was the Professor's hall brother. Mrs. Ordell tearfully confesses to me that he had beater, her. "Then why on earth," I asked her tactlessly and almost furiously, 'didn't you leave him or report him to the police?" "J vvss afraid of him," slic wept, i "Then, loo, I loved him. 1 know I that you can't under.stiind that hut i when tie xva.s his charming self lie ^ was a kindly, intelligent, and (Je- j lightful person." David interrupted my t.ilk with Mrs. Ordcll, and took me gently i by the arm and led me out onto the porch which overlooked the i Lake. It was twilight, the kind | that comes only at very high altitudes. Around us the high Sierras were halhed In gold which turned to \inlet and deep rose on the lower slopes.
