Blood stained his tanned cheek. Roughly, he whirled her around to face the sheriff. Purely scowled. -Mrs. Thorn*," he said slowly, "that's no-way to art. You want me thinkin' you killed that poor old woman?" "! don't care wh«t you- think I" "No?" Amusement flickered acres* the jherifTj sober face "You wouldn't like our jail. It's dirty »nd it's got eockroache*." Then, without changing hi« reproachful tone, he shot at n«r, "Where were you?'' "in — " Sondra stopped. Her eyes widened. "I told you. I wac in the living room. With Peter." The sheriff 'chewed his lower lip. "Where was Jasper?" "Why don't you ask Jasper?" "I have," Purdy replied. "I'd still like to know your story." Sondra jat back, apparently relaxed. Leeana couldn't understand why, for the sheriff's steady gaze held everything but belief in her innocence. She made a tentative b*gin- Ding: "Jasper and I argued—" "'Argued,'" her husband Interrupted dryly, "is putting M mildly." "we argueeV' Sondra went on. flinging him i dirty look, "about hit aunt's will— it's validity. 1 wanted him lo telephone Devens —Miss Maggie's lawyer," she added parenthetically. "But Jasper wouldn't. H« had some sort of chivalrous Idea that the old lady could do as she wanted— the money was hers. So I walked out on him." Her gasp was Implication enough, but she cried out, "Jap. you didn't — " Jasper looked at her out of dead eyes. "I didn't," he said dully, but there was no conviction in his tone. Nothing— but despair. Leeana was glad the sheriff didn't seem Interested in him now, although why she should pity Jasper Thome—! From outside came the sound of measured footstep". Purdy went into the hall; a momenf later there were mumbled questions, an an- fwer, and the men went upstairs. Already they walked that way— as though they carried a lifeless burden, the sheriff did not return immediately Mart Preston •hrugged to hi« feet. He dabbed experimentally at his cheek; it was ttiH bleeding. -There's a. thing or two bothering me. He turned to Mrs. Carstairs. "Leeana says you are not » hysterical woman," he said "and yet Mrj. Thome — " hit eyes went fleetingly to r Sondrn— "says 'you were having hysterics when she went to call you." Cynthia Carstain' frozen 'nee went colder than ever "I was scared. That's all." Martin smiled. "Oh, come now, i-s. Carslairs! When Mrs. Thorne called you, you didn't know Miss Maggie was dead. Did you?" "Certainly notr •Well, then—" Mart paused; then, "What did you see from your bedroom window?" The cook started up. (ben sank back, petrified with frith*. "Who did you see?" "He can't make you tell. Cynthia," Peler Thorne put in SH-.aiy. "He has no right to make you say anything—self-incriminating." Deputy Preston shifted hit attack from the Thorne family cook to Peter. "I am not trying to Involve Mrs. Carstairs," he mid coldly. "I am merely trying to solve a murder. Or do you object to that, too? Are you ,fr,ld of what she will say?" "Why should I be afriMT I WK with Sondra." "I'm beginning to wonder about that, too," Mart snapped. Surprisingly enough, it was Ju- per who protected. "You're being a bit ridiculou*, Preston," he Mid. "You're as bad as Purdy." "Thanks," Mart drawled. "Clem will be glad to hear that." He turned again to Peter. "Mrs. Carstairs' room is directly across the court from Jasper's—and yet she looked first to. you when she came m here. Was that because she saw y.ou—in Jasper's room and not in the living room?" "In that case," drawled Peter Thorne, "where was Jasper?" • • a A * almost Imperceptible change came over Jasper Thorne as Leeana wached. His Mn shoulder* lost some of their habitual xtimp and his hard eyes became a trifle narrower. What, she asked heraeif, wa« going on behind that thick 'blue veil? And why did Sondra's eyes tall as they met his? Wai it because Jasper knew now that Peter had not been in the living room with her? Or because Sondra herseM had not been there at all? Leeana glanced at Mart Preston' and was surprised that he seemed to be paying no attention at all to the Thornes. He was concentrating on Cynthia Carstalrs—and on Arthur Jones, who sat to her right. The old man's face was grief-twisted and his thin, gnarled hands wrestled with each other in his lap. "Now, Mr. Jones," Mart began, suppose you tell IK whatever you think will help. About tonight especially." (T. Concrete Culvert Tile Sim ip to 36 In. Corrugated Metal Culverts She* ip |« M In. G»(e« Concrete S«plic Tanks Met»] Septic Tanks S«wer Tile Best Prices We r)c || TeT A.
