"I don't like it, Katy," Ted said once, when th« dog's ears made radar-like halt circles. "Do you uppoM someone is prowling?" "Who would?" "The person who killed the Jerome woman." He put it so malter-of-tact!y. libeller's deputy had said not to depend too much on a dog and now Ted was warning her, too "The killer returning to the scene of the crime, Ted?"

"Oh. Hellor "You sound relieved. Expecting someone else?" Dave! It was the voice ot Dave Argus. Katy remembered to breathe again. "We didn't know what to expect," Ted admitted. "I imagine not." Then, as Kaly went into the hall, "Hi, Katy Elmo. Still packing the chip on your shoulder for law and order?" Katy stiffened in spite of the gladness that had come with the sound of his voice. "Can you give me one good reason why I shouldn't?" she challenged. "I can." The gray eyes were laughing at her, teasing her when thoy shouldn't Not in the face of murder. Katy frowned.

"One thing at a time, Ted, one at a time," Dave held up a remonstrating hand. "In the dark, yes, because I wanted to sec il 1 could follow that foot path "V ^Davc!" Katy gasped. "—down from the gate like Agnes Jerome did." Dave Argus talked smoothly, as if Katy had not interrupted at his mention of the scene of the crime.

It could be so important yet the meaning seemed to uscape her. "Why did you need to know Dave?" she asked. Dave Argus seemed to bo lak- ing his tirnc about answering. The seconds of pause seemert like minutes. And as Katy wailed for the reply she remembered the slanting morning snnlieh! and the creek rippling over Die rocks and Agnes Jerome's body. Finally, whrn It seemed that Katy could stand the silence no longer, Dave Argus said, "Because Agnes Jerome didn't come down that path.
