The Gift Shop ON MAIN XXXII !TIM DUNN flung himself back- J ward through the open door *rf the shed, twisted as he fell so -•bis assailant took the main force of the fall. A fist from nowhere -connected with one of Jim's eyes, (and bright streaks of purple and (yellow cut across his line of vis- Son. He had the fleeting thought jit had not been too bright to [break the throat hold. He (grabbed with his left hand, fcaught a firm hold in a mop of 'hair, used the hold as a guide for fa right cross. He got a grunt of jpain for a reward. A fist went (by his head, nearly taking an ear jwith it. .. Jim swung again, realizing [that the dark bulk had lost its (first violent frenzy, was gasping (for breath. Dunn got to his (knees, pulled the man upright |and swung again. It was only a iglancing blow, but his assailant ;was torn from his grasp, (stretched on th* floor. . Jim found the light switch. He tbad his hand on his gun when he [looked down into the battered (face of Vern Bruce. Vern Bruce sat up slowly, felt jthe side of his jaw where a knot (was forming. He reached in his jpocket,,took put a glasses case, <and put on his bifocals. "Guess I'm not as young as I was." "Not as young as you were •when you once killed a man?" "Know about that, do you? iWell, there were mitigating circumstances. And I paid for it I got mad and lost my head entirely " "But you still haven't said why you jumped me." "Heard som«thing in the shed, and one of my cats was upset. •Saw the light iniidc and camo over to Investigate. The cat came with me. When you came outside and hurt my cat—well, 1 guess I lost my head." Jim Dunn touched hU *y« fin* ..*. shut, and his head felt as if his skull was flapping. "I'd just turned off the light and was still blinded. I can't see in the dark even if you and your cats can." Vern Bruce took his words as an apology. "It's all right. I shouldn't have jumped you." "That man you killed so long ago. Did that have something to do with animals?" "He was beating a horse," Bruce said. Jim Dunn was suddenly thankful indeed that Vern Bruce had learned to distrust guns. "Maybe itV a good thing you're here at that. You know anything about power tools, and electric wiring?" . "Sure," Bruce agreed. "You know, I've had a hankering to use some of these tools of Mansfield's. Have it coming to me in one way. Every time he'd come out here and work, my radio would go on the fritz. Buzz to beat the Dutch." 1 think you're really going to be a help," Jim said. "At least I think you've cleared up one point Why Eddie Stone's radio was left going. Eddie got a signal and left his room right away." Once more the gallery of cats watched them from their balcony on the other side of the fence. • • * TT was 5:30 when Richards ar* rived. Richards looked from the bruises on Jim's face to the swellings on Bruce's. "What goes on?" "Never mind that," Jim said. His eye was swollen shut now and h« wanted to get this over with. Ho walked over to the dressmaker's dummy, put the oversize coat around its shoulders. The wire connecting the specially constructed works inside the dvsmmy to the light switch was coiled and hidden, but tht long heavy cord which was in plain sight. "Ready," Jim said to Vern Bruce. "Start the lathe going." Bruce pushed a switch. The cord began to wind around a spindle on the lathe as it revolved. The cord tightened. The dummy moved, seemed to come to life. It moved quickly and silently on its o i 1 e d- wheels, moved at about the pace of a man walking along the cleared path toward the lathe. Jim Dunn walked along, just behind it. Even now he had to steel himself, had to tell himself it was only his imagination which made the moving dummy resemble the figure, the broad back of Otto Drover. He held a metal ice pick in his hand, and, as the dummy moved past the staring Mark Richards, Jim stabbed the dummy in the back at the exact point where the old coat showed signs of so many previous stabbings. The dummy moved closer to the lathe, and Bruce turned off the current "Wait another minute," Jim demanded. He and Bruce unwound the string, restored the dummy to its original position, recoiled the electric wire which had unrolled as the dummy had moved. "This time, when th« dummy moves, you stab it, Mark." He handed the all-metal ice pick to Richards. "Stab it where the heart would be. Understand?" • • * DICHARDS wet his lips and nodded his head. He balanced the ice pick in his hand. "Start the lathe, Bruce," Jim ordered. Once again the dummy started its gliding motion across the floor of the long shed. As Jim had done before, Mark Richards walked behind the dummy, moving into striking position. He stabbed suddenly. He yelled. He was flung back, hit the wall of the shed. The ice pick flew from his hand, narrowly missed Vern Bruce. He kept his feet, and stood there propped against the wall, rubbing his arm which still tingled from the heavy electric shock.
