For State Representative Mississippi County H. H. (Buddy) Howard XXH "DICHARDS pulled out desk drawers, found reams and reams of good quality unused paper, large manila manuscript envelopes, and a large bunch of keys, all neatly labeled. Two [very bulky mail-order catalogs [were in the bottom right-hand kJrawer. They went through the open idoor of the passageway, out into [the brilliant light of the back •yard. Dunn turned quickly to- 'ward the fence. The cat heads :\vere gone, had been replaced by •a single human head belonging to Vern Bruce. "Find out what's wrong?" : "Yes. We'll be over to talk to (you in a little while." Richards walked to the gate in ithe fence, found it locked. He 'returned to the shed, fitted a : .key in the expensive padlock, ,and opened the door. One end ^of the long building was fitted tout as a workshop. Rows of tools Otiung in handmade racks, and an •expensive lathe and power tools showed signs of recent use. The other end of the shed was apparently a catch-all. There were *>dd lengths of lumber, coils of .wire, pieces of plaster-board, three battered washtubs, a portly dressmaker's form, and a curtain pole with oid-fashioned Iwooden rings. "I don't like that alley gate being locked »o much," Richards eaid. Richards locked tM shed door •gain, led the way back inside, up th« steep stairs to the Stone landing, He put his ear against the door jtor t moment, then selected the proper key and turned the lock. ^THE two men moved quickly A into the living room. Chief Hughes was sprawled in an easy chair, his month open, Wfbead back. He wat snorinf loudly. The metal ash tray at his side was partly filled with soggy ci-j JH floated ki a haK cup of black coffee. Richards shook Chief Hughes' shoulder. A snore was chopped off in the middle and the man's eyes snapped open. He grunted, "Huh?" "Wake up," Mark ordered. Hughes blinked his eyes. "Lieutenant Richards. Guess I must have dozed off. My wife let you in? I didn't hear you ring." "Had a key," Mark said. "Your wife, where is she?" "Lying down in Eddie Stone's room, last I knew. I insisted she try to get some rest." The door of Eddie Stone's room was open, the light still burned. Mrs. Hughes slept, fully clothed. A fat book Jim recognized as one of the volumes of fairy stories had fallen to the floor at her bedside. The door of Mayor Stone's room was pulled open jnd Stone stood there swaying. He was bleary-eyed, still struggling against the affects of the drug Pardon had administered. "What —what is it? What are you doing here? Why are you looking in Eddie's room?" A wave of recollection hit him then and all color left his face. "Eddie," he said. "Eddie." Chief Hughes came bustling along the hall. "Look here, Richards, what's going on What do you mean coming in like this and upsetting everyone? Is something wrong?" "Yes. Ill tell you about it in a few minutes. After your wife and Mayor Stone have had a chance to really wake up. That is, unless you have something to *ell me?" "To tell you? What could I tell? I just got—I just got to sleep a short while ago." Jim and Mark shut the kttcbtn door behind them, moved slowly i-P (he sleep stairs. Jim spoke: .J1BLJL the shots, there was the ambulance. And we and your crew weren't trying to keep from making any noise. You'd think one at least of the three of them. would have been awake and curious." "I wouldn't think so right now," Mark said. "If I ever get to sleep again the crack of doom wouldn't budge me." He took the bunch of keys from his pocket. "Let's see. Here it is, back door, Nash. That ought to do fee trick," Richards had the key pointed at the lock when the door was flung open. A burly man stood ere and the .45 revolver he held leveled at Mark's chest looked as big as a cannon. TVTASH wanted to see a little proof of identity, was satisfied with a quick look at Richards' badge. He said, "Come on in." He put the revolver, away in a kitchen table drawer. "Now maybe 111 find out what's going on around here." "You worked last night?** "Yes. I got home only a few minutes ago. Nearly got run down by an ambulance as I turned into this street. You have any report on prowlers?" "Prowlers? What makes yo* think of that?" "Last week or », when I'd come home in the morning, I've had the feeling someone had been in my apartment Vm a bachelor, and maybe I'm fussy. I've been told that, anyhow. Don't get me wrong though. Nothing has been missing, nothing really disturbed. His just a feeling I've had that someone has been snooping around. TJntH last night, it was just a feeling. Now I know." "How can you be sure?" "A simple little trap," Na«h Mid. He pointed to a broken thread hanging from the top of the kitchen door. "Someone opened this back door while I wat goat. There's another tried a yawn that wag artttcM. feroken thread. Someone uaed the front stain kft night too. I noticed that first thing when I came home," HLM.
