The Gift Shop ON MAIN xxxm T^UNN apologized. "Maybe we have the current turned up a littl« too high. But you missed Mark. You didn't hit the heart !Your fteb wouldn't have been ; fatal. You missed, and that's iwhat happens to you." Mark Richards shook his head "It only took me three times :to learn exactly where to strike. Jim said. "When you stab the •*heart' there is no electric shock How many shocks do you think Eddie had before he was perfect, 'Mark? Look at the threadbare /place in the back of that coat. Betw*«n the shoulder*, where a coat ordinarily wouldn't show great wear." Mark shook his head slowly, M if to keep away the thought picture of Eddie Stone stabbing •and stabbing again and again. Days of practice? Months? Kow •much time had been spent in that cruel training? And for what promised reward? For a promise h« would be like other P«ople? Richards remembered the cyanide-filled soda pop and shivered. v He said, "Who, Jim?" Vern Bruce answered that one. "Mansfield, of course. Anyone who would want to try an experiment on a cat wouldn't mind trying one on a human being." "But why?" "I think youll find the answer to that in - Mansfield's tafe- deposit boxes," Jim said. "At one time he had a very large fortune. Yet we know he has made nothing from his writing. And he has denied himself nothing when it comes to his hobbies. That, beside his playing the stock market You'll have to check with his broker* too, Mark. Remember, it was only a few months ago he had that expensive Job of soundproofing done. I think you'H find hit finance* hav* taken a hire for the worse since then." "What a way to get money," "The method didn't enter into it with Mansfield," Jim said. "Read some of his literary efforts written during these last 20 years. He was completely wrapped up in himself and the 'injustices' done him. With a man like that, say he lost on the market, do you think he would quibble a moment about how he regained loney? Oh, he was quite willing to gamble. Either on the market, or in staking the few years left of his life on this murder-extortion scheme. But he never dreamed he would be suspected, let alone found out." "Is that why he did not dispose of this dummy?" ," Jim said, "I believe it was more a matter of time. With police in and out of the house, he cculd not do anything suspicious. In fact it was not until the early hours of morning, almost daylight, that he considered it safe enough to hide the extortion money." The money!" Mark snapped his fingers. "Ill have the whole force in here, and we'll take this place apart board by board. Unless you've figured out where the money is too?" Approximately," Jim said. "Remember, Mansfield had two pipe wrenches with him when he was shot." Jim tried not to hesitate over the statement. "So we'll get us a couple of pipe wrenches. Then we'll go over all the pipes and plumbing, hunting for fresh scratches. One thing about pipe wrenches, they do leave marks." Richards was staring now at hi* friend. "Jim, who shot him? He didn't shoot himself, did he?" Jim Dunn thought ruefully of the hours he had spent going through ream* of handwritten manuscript, searching for fome page which he might u*e for an admission. But in Mansfield's writings small consideration of the fact that the man—or Mansfield— might have been guilty. Certainly Jim had found nothing that oonld be construed as a confession, even by separating a few sentences from the context. "No," he said slowly. "Mansfield didn't shoot himself. But he's still alive. You can always ask him, Mark." "You think he'll talk?" "No," Jim said. "I don't think he will. And we may find he was shot while making an attempt to destroy evidence of his guilt." "So," Richards said slowly. "That's the way it is. We might get by with it, if Mansfield lives." "He's got to live," Jim said. "And that's the reason you're not going to disturb him in any way until he is out of danger." "I guess we can make a strong enough case against him without his saying anything—for now," Richards admitted. "Especially if we find the money. Of course, Mansfield can always say it was his own cash he had -hidden." * * • «r)ON'T forget our friend Mr. Jones. The one who had put little marks on his money, so he'd be able to recognize it And, for that matter, I'd be very much surprised if Peter Atwood or some of the others hadn't done the same." "All right, Jim," Richards said. "I'll play along with you—provided we find the money." "Agreed. And Mark, before we leave this shop I should explain one reason why Eddie't radio was on—left running. The switching on of the lathe produced interference, made the radios around here howl. Eddie was listening for a signal too. He hurried down to join Man*field when he heard. He—he wat anxious to complete his number of tasks so he could be changed into his real form." Tasks?" Richards *aid. 'Where did you get that?" Rt>m a high school play," Jim said. "A great favorite of Eddie Stone's. Through repetition it lad come to be far more real than the actual world to him.'
