Leeano stepped off (fie chair. She would not go into thai room! She backed away, lint Peter was quicker. Fingers closed about her wrist. "Don't be a Tool!" he hissed. "It 1 wanted to kill you — " He broke off, shrugging. His hands tell away from her wrist. "Go if you like, Leeana, but I'd like to talk to you." Lceniia stepped past him into the room. Peter followed her, stood for a moment with his hand on the knob, and closed Ihe door. Then, smiling faintly, he handed the key to her. "I'm not afraid o( you, Peter. Keep your key." He put it on the bureau and returned to stand beside her. "So you're not afraid of me?" he said thoughtfully. "But you think I killed Aunt Margaret, tried to kill Aunt Agatha— and you." "1 didn't say that." "You don't have to say it." He was looking at her steadily, his face carefully expressionless. Leeana fought to subdue the rising fear; it mustn't show. She forced a smile. "Don't be silly, Peter. Mart sent me to find you. He wants to — to talk things over with you. He knows I'm here." "Does he?" Peter shook his Scad. It's no go, Leeani. 1'told you once your fear showed all over you—remember? Well, it still does. You were spying on me. You wanted to search my room to find evidence that would convict me. We!!—" he gestured broadly — go on. Search." Ho seated himself on a straiKhl chair by the door, nodded toward the 1 bureau and said: "You might begin there.• • « CUDDE.NLY infuriated that he should treat her so childishly Leeana yanked open the top bureau drawer. Socks were there meticulously arranged according lo color. So were handkerchiefs. She went on lo (he other drawers Let Peler Thorne laugh up the other sleeve it he thought she wouldn I search his confounded bureau! Her probing fingers encountered paper. She went on with her methodical search, hoping that Peter's watchful eyes had not noted the momentary hesitation. She pushed the last drawer shut with an intentional bang. "Don't think you've tooled me cousin," he said soberly. "You found it, didn't you?" Dismayed, Leeana nodded. 'And you're dying to Ipll your copper boyfriend. Or come back later, yourself." Peter, had not moved a muscle. "I'll save you the trouble. Get the package" Obediently, Ueana took it from .„ drawer. When Peter said Open it!" sternly, she did. Gleaming with a million fires imprisoned in one large stone and half a dozen smaller ones ranged around it, was the Javaliere—the 1'horne family heirloom. Leeana stared at it. "But—but I thought Sondra—" "Sondra," Peter said softly, "underestimated my contact with New York's off-color business world, my dear cousin. The old gent who let her have 25 C'a recognized it —chiefly, I must admit, because ! had pawned it' once before—and called me. He knew Sondra from the old days, loo.

He looked much too suave, She .said, "Why didn't you come home?" "And be dust under Aunt Margaret's feet—like Jasper? Oh, no, thank you, not me! Not," bitterly "when there's a woods full of suckers in New York." This is the Peler Thorne 1 hale Leeana thought, her fingers clos- ". g ,. ab ? ut thE delicate gold chain of the lavaliere. This is the Peter who could do murder—if it benefit led him. "Aunt Maggie wondered why yot. came this time. Even Sondra was surprised." Leeana recalled honors s taunting greeting. • • . PETER stopped his pacing to stand beside her. "I've been talking tar too much, but I'm trying to convince you 1 did not kill Aunt Margaret. I'm not quife sure understand, but—" He hesitated; £ n vL th ' nk ' L(:ean a. 1 know who did." Leeana held her breath. If only Mart woj-c here! Or-anybody. She didn't want to be alone with Peter any longer. The burning intensity of his manner was terrifying. "You won't believe me, cousin " he said, coming closer. "You won't think it possible—none of them will—but I_" He drew back Leeana, did you hear something?" Leeana didn't. She shook her head. Peter sprang to the door, jerked it open. But the hall was empty. He came back, shaking his head Someone was there, listening! I heard him, I'm sure of it!" Crossing swiftly to her side he closed her fingers about Ihe lava- hcre. "Ke«p it, Leeana. When this is—over, give it to Aunt Agatha. Not before, undersland?" Dumbfounded, she agreed. "And don't go on suspecting me," he pleaded. "I—didn't have a chance to kill her. She was already dead when I went." <T« Be Con tinned) Blytheville Glass & Paint Co. 136 B. Main Phone 6716 Concrete Culvert Tile Slzts np to 36 In. Corrugated Metal Culverts Slics up to 84 In.
