"Tell me some other things [ want to know, David " I said. "Well, rny dear, since you'd rather talk of crime than o< love, here goes. Miss Martinson phoned James that she was arriving In the early evening. There was much secret conversation and while I naturally wasn't in on it. i suspected a good deal because 1 already knew a part of the story. "After dinner while it was still fairly lipht I saw Ordell go to the stable. Hu! of course. I had no idea what he intended lo do. He haci secretrxj his rifle in the barn or in the wood s. By highway the Springs are 12 miles from the lodge. By the trail which goes straight up from the bowl of the Jake meadow, it's only one and a half miles. Ordell lay in wait for Miss Martinson after he had twilight shells from r.oorms for his f rifle.

Death in the Sierras lak« a ihot at old Jim. Well, he missed and went into a panic.' He rode wildly back to the lodge by the short trail, left his mud spattered, exhausted horse in the ham after unsaddling hurriedly, hid his ria« in the loft and ran to his tent. • • * "]ypANWHHJ; you h.d eome into camp. Mrs. OrdeU, believing that you were Elsie, wai more than thankful to see you sate, but was in terror of what misht happen. She begged Bob to'pHone the police, but James prevented him from doing it. James believed you to be ELsie as did all the rest. When you went to your tent that first night Jsunes placed the poisoned meat in your tent became he was sure that you were Ehle and had brought Susie along for protection. "After breakfast the next morning the Ordclls went to their tent. Ordell came back Innocently enough and that misled me. I couldn't believe he stabbed her 20 minutes before we heard the scream." "But." 1 interrupted. "How could Mrs. Ordell scream twenty minutes later?" "She didn't. Officer Wallace came along in his ladies' outfit, saw James dash out of the tent and went in to see what the hurry was about. Wallace Is > poor officer but he is not a criminal. It was he who hit Ordell over the head later of course, thinking Ordell was the killer. And it was he who pitched his-voice high and gave a Rood loud fcmintne scream. He knew it would bring us." "And the powder on the baked ham?" "James again. James and Ordell, as ! said, were cousins and their lamily is cursed with the Uint of insanity. An uncle Is in the asylum at Stockton. James was (he more dangerous of the two though neither was exactly tame." ''And you and I walked those trails in the dark with the professor," I shivered. "Why, you even left me to go on alone to the lodge with him!" "No, I didn't leave you dear I only pretended to. He knew you weren't Klsie and I thought that if he was the killer he would wnnt to sneak away in the dark to wreck your car or at least lo hunt for the bullet, t wnlfccd along ntnr you just behind those willows, ile fell into my trap and went straight to the bam. As soon as you were safe at the lodge, I trailed him. But Dob had ilrcady dug out the shell. "Then Ordell pulled a fast one. He tipped James oil to follow u;- when we went after the treasure and to demand the money." "Who was the ghost that Rhum- ba saw?" "That was Wilmot. He smeared his face with powder and water to scare poor Rhumbn. Just his Idea of fun." "And who ran along by the kitchen when I heard the shot and ran away from you?" "CAM BURDICK. Incidentally, Sam was decorated for bravery in the war. Loomis told mt all about him so I knew that 1 was taking but a small chance. Jim says that Sam acts as a sort of doctor in these parts whether the patient is a cow with a broken leg or a man with Indigestion. So ] just played my ace card and it worked." "But why did you stage that dramatic scene in the cave? Why didn't you merely arrest Ordell and Wallace?" "It's always better, Rosemary, to get a confession from a criminal It saves the slate time and money! Then, too. Ordell needed breaking down. I had caught Wallace only short time before and Duncan and I had checked the times in which Ordell could have ridden back to camp from the Springs and we found that the whole story proved the professor guilty. And now, let's just forget the whole mess." We sat by tlie fire a long lime that night. We had much to plan, a lifetime ahead of us, and. when Susie coti!<i be up and about again, a honeymoon at Gold Lake Lodge THE END How Fast Do You Drive?
