Locked up, the house is 'sposcd to be. Windows boarded. Williams': gone to Miami to spend the winter with his daughter, like he does every year, so when Johnny saw smoke this mornin' . . ." His voice trailed oil, caught again: "But sh« says she ain't seen Peter." "No?" Leeana held her breath at (he suspicion edging Mart's voice. Then he said, "She lied before. Why not now?" Sondra gave him a tantalizing smile. "Why should 1 lie to you, Mart?" She lingered over his name, caressing it with her lips. Leeana saw the red start up from Mart's collar, saw his lean jaw go square and uncompromising. "1 was afraid—simply terrified! —ol Peter. Mart, you must believe me!" She flung a disdainful look at Sheriff Purtly. "He talks as it I —as if 1 had killed poor Miss Maggie, when I only—" "Only what?" Purdy'i voice was like ice. Sondra bit her pretty lip. "You :'don r t know what k means bo be ! afraid to tell the truth! You can't ;know! Peter told me he—he'd kill me if 1 told. And he will! Where ,is Peter?" "If I knew that, Sondra," Martin .Preston said softly, "I'd know who ! killed Miss Maggie— and Miss j Aggie." "Agalhiil Is si.c—oh, no!" The harshness that had been in jLceana's heart began to melt. Son- ;dra swayed and would hive fallen ; i/ Mart had not sprung forward. Jasper Thorne and Mrs. Car- j stairs took her away a few min- lules later and the sherill sent a t man to stand guard at her door, ! Purdy was not, he informed them, . taking another chance. He couldn'l afford to lose another witn' against Peter. "Are you sure it's Peter?" Leeana haled herself for asking. "Well . . . reasonably," he said finally. "Why not?" "Why?" Leeana countered. 'Peter might have been telling the Irifth — same as Sondra might " jyflRTH flickered up in the sheriff's eyes and his tired lips stirred into a grin. "You're jealous," he accused. "You saw her in Mart's arms, which, by the way, seemed to fit right nice. Eh, Mart?", 'Quiet, you," Mart laid good- naturedly, but the thoughtful look did not leave him. "Lee—listen. 1 want you to tell m« everything. From the first." "But I have. So many times." "Again. Start with before Miw Maggie was killed—early that day —and take your time. I want to know every breath you took, every move made by everybody in this house." To Purdy he said. "Sit down, Clem. This wilt lake a long time. But it's good—I think." The sheriff pulled a straight- backed chair up to the table, tamped tobacco into his pipe and announced he wal ready. "For anything—only don't marry him, girl," he warned Leeana. "He liked holding that blonde." Leeana grinned at him in spite of herself, but a moment later she was wondering ij she would ever smile again. Apprehension cut a deep swath through her confidence, withering everything but the tear that Had been with her ever since she had lain on that stiff uncomfortable old hall sofa and heard Peter and Sondra fling murder in her face. All that first terror, linkc j now with the vivid memories of Miss Aggie's death, gnawed viciously at her compo5ur«.

No, of course not Miss Maggie died before her lawyer, Devens, could come. Peter i had seen to that, lie and Jasper would inherit, share and share' alike, now. Jasper and Sondra would live in luxury. . . . But it had not been Jasper with whom Sondra had gone away. She had gone with Peter, even though he had abandoned her at the old Williams place. Left her,/she had said, until he could go to town for a train and a bu« tickei so they would not be seen leaving Thorne City logcther. And yet Peter had hated Sondra enough to write that letter to Miss Maggie. ... He must have hated h«rl CHE stopped talking, looked " straight at Mart Preston without seeing him. It wasn't—yes, it was po s s i b 1 e, too! Gradually Wart's questioning face cam* into 'ocus. "Okay, Leeana," tt* ordered gently. "Out with it" "They hated each olhor, Mart. Sondra and Peter." "So what?" "So they wouldn't have gone away together. Why should Sondra leave Thorne Hill with a man she hated—when Jasper will have just as much money DOW u Peter?" "Sondra doesn't exactly worship Jasper, or 1 misi my guest," Mart observed dryly. "Maybe not. But Jasper is comfortable. Like an old shoe. Sondra could wip* her feet on him. SI likes that, even if Thorne Mill pretty dull. It gives her a senr. of power—security she wouldn: want to lose. Sondra lived hard before she became'-Mrs. Jasper Thorne. Miss Maggie knew It. She didn't want a—a showgirl in the family. Bad foe Uw prestige, you know." ' "Just what are ycm trying to say?" Mart asked. T^eeana took a deep breath "Sondra killed Maggie »i< Miss Aggi«.
