"Mr. Hughes went home for some things for us. Naturally we're going to stay. To be with Ed when he wakes up. Ke — he'll need us." "It's .good of you," Richards isaid sincerely. "I wonder if you I could tell us anything about the jupstairs tenant?" : "Mr. Nash, isn't it? I don't know much about him. He works Bights." "There's a back entrance to this flat?" "Yes. Go through the kitchen. There's a back stairway and a small landing. For garbage disposal, meters and things such as that." "Do you happen to know if Eddie Stone was in the habit of going in and out the back way?" Mark Richards asked. 1 "I don't know," she answered, "but from my knowledge of boys, 'J r d say it was highly probable." Mark led the way through the kitchen, out the back door to the •small landing. He mounted the steep stairway to the upper landing and a locked door, came down again and directed his flashlight downward. "We'd better go around and ring for old Mansfield before we go down," he decided. "I taw • light in his front room when w« x |came in this time. He's quite • (Character, Jim. Won't speak to people." Mar|*r«t Hugh* stood fct tot head of the inside stairway and watched them go. This time Jim felt no strange movement of the treads under his feet. Richards pushed Gaylord Mansfield's bell. The door popped open, and a gnomelike man, whose face fell in on itself in folds, stood there holding a white placard so the porch light would fall on it. The placard read, "What do you want?" "Good morning, Mr. Mansfield," Mark Richards said as if this early hour was his usual time for calling. "Wonder if we could talk to you for a short time?" Mansfield hesitated, pulled an expensive brocade dressing gown closer around him. He turned, led the way through the entrance hall into a large, almost bare room. There was a huge flat- topped desk piled with papers. There was a single chair. There was an incongruous-appearing telephone resting on a corner of the desk. • • • -\TANSFIELD took the single -L™- chair, pulled a clean sheet of good quality bond paper from a freshly opened ream, and wrote rapidly. The movement of the old-fashioned steel pen, its thudding trips to a hitherto concealed inkwell, spoke of petulance. "No matter the time of-day or night 1 set aside for work, there are always inconsiderate interruptions. Please be brief." His handwriting was «nan, neat, and entirely legible, though slightly old-fashioned like the pen he used. "Have you heard of the deatb of Eddie Stone?" Mark asked. Gaylord Mansfield lean*d ovtr and wrote, "Yes. R«<*i° *• _ "Then you have heard the cir- cumstancti, o< tht txtortion art- tempts?" Mansfield wrote, "Attempts? I heard on the radio many had paid off. Fools. I had a letter —and • phone call. I could not te tottered. Certainly I bavt i other uses for my money. I destroyed the letter, ignored the phone call. I have my work!" He looked up at them pointedly. "What time was set for your pay-off?" Mark asked. "Eight-fifty. But I did not go." "And you did not keep the letter?" Mansfield pushed the sheet of paper on which he had written nearer to Mark. There was a sign of growing irritation in the gesture. Jim Dunn saw the piles of papers on the desk were all filled with the same neat handwriting. So many piles of sheets! How many days or hours of solitary work did they represent? "One thing more," Richards said, "and then we'll leave you to your work, with an apology for the interruption. We want to know about the back stairs. There is a way out to the alley?** Mansfield nodded. "Was Eddie Stone m the habit of using that back way?" Again the nod. "Could you tell us if he went out that way last evening?" Mansfield had to write again. "I could not tell you. The boy was in and out a thousand times a day. I ignore tht noise h« makes." "Nothing about Eddie Ston« you could tell us? Nothing that would help?" Gaylord Mansfield shook his head, looked pointedly at his worktable, got up and showed them to the'door. * • • "WHAT'S the matter with " him?" Jim demanded when they were out in the cool air. "Won't talk to local people," Richards said. "Oh, he can talk if he wants to, but he doesn't I've heard he had some sort of disagreement with Colorado City folks long ago, and won't speak to any of them." "Why the phone then? ft wouldn't help much to hold up cards in front of it." "A dial phone," Richards said, "He wouldn't have to talk to the operator." "Wouldn't he talk when he got his number?" Jim persisted. Mark Richards yawned. (T« EXPERT WATER PUMP REPAIR Hubbard Hardware Phone 2015 NEED PAINT?
