H. (Buddy) Howard H xxxv and Jim followed Mrs. Hughes into an immaculate nod eoejr Mvteg room which melted of floor polish and rtiowed signs of recent, thorough cleaning. •"Mow, lefs see," Mrs. Hughes said. "This is the last room. Everything's ctean. I have the notes here to leave to the linen closet •o—my husband can find things. And then there's the note for L . ." Sb« sat down suddenly. land tears came from her eyes. Mm. Hugb« dried her eyes with a tiny handkerchief. 'Tm aorry,* she apologized. *I —I thought I was ready. I didn't ithink Pd*be so silly. And I do iappfeeiate your waiting until I "" get my bouse in order." Naacy darted a questioning at Dunn. H* nodded. Nancy . over and sat down beside older woman. She said, "Tell about it* She read the flash •uspidofi In Mm. Hughes' jtyai correct*. "A»d if s not for bublteatkMX Ifi Important to in*.* Mn. Hugtvw hesitated, took a deep breatn and began to talk. The words, bottled up tor w long • time, *Utod out to a *mdy torrent. .! "Some tkne afo, Bd Stone tame to me and said he was wor- iried about bis ton's seeing so touch of Gaylord Mansfield. You toay not know It, but over two pears ago, Mansfield had suggested that Eddie be sent to a home. Ho had only mentioned it once, but Ed Stone never forgot. £d told me he had installed ml- cropnones to Mansfield's study and bedroom when be baa been doing the soundproofing wort. Mansfield talked to himself whtn Ihe was alone, and be was apt to Italk to hta sleep." ! Mrs. Hughes found • mall hr,: i ;onh1ef and pulled it back ana lorUk Utf ouffe *** iu*efa. "A made my first oxistake then. I didnt believe Ed had reason to worry, and I humored him without saying anything to my husband/* • * • TIM DUNN could understand and appreciate the fact that Mayor Stone's life had been worry-ridden since the time it had become evident that Eddie was not normal. Stone could not know whether his son's association with Mansfield was a good thing, a companionship and diversion to be appreciated, or something quite different. Something which made it imperative for Stone to know, even to the length of his installing the eavesdropping microphones, which might warn him if Mansfield was seeking evidence to have Eddie sent away. "Ed put the receiving end of the microphones up in the tower room. Nash, the upstairs roomer, was always away nights, so there was no trouble about getting tip there, and Eddie wouldn't be curious about the—the contraption. Eddie wanted a television and he'd have believed that was it" Mrs. Hughes looked at her shredded handkerchief. "We still haven't a local television station you know.** Jim realized sbe was putting off a part of her story as long as possible. "I humored him," She smiled wryly. "1 suppose it was partly because only his son was Involved. And then, I guess It was a month ago, Ed phoned me he'd overheard Mansfield talking about big losses oo the stock market. It was then Mansfield started reciting parti of my SOD'S pity." "I heard him recite • part,* Jim said. "When 1 was giving him a tramMon to tbt hospital." She nodded slowly. "It's hard to explain the way we felt. You sea, it wat only instinct told us something was wrong, The whole play was a great favorite of Eddie's. He sew only the side dealing with magic and wishes granted and fairies. What could we prove wrong in the fact Gaylord Mansfield took the trouble to learn a fairy story to tell to Eddie Stone? T told Ed we were fast driving ourselves crazy over nothing, that the listening, the eavesdropping was making u? worse. He agreed, decided to cut the wires and take the eouinment back to hi* shop: the very next day. "But the next day, there was the wedding. And there was the murder of Chief Drover. I fainted when I heard the news." She put the pieces of her handkerchief away. "The real nightmare was just beginning. When my husband and T left the Holt house and the wedding reception, he was going to drive me home. But the car was not in the same place I had left ft. Not quite. It was there, the keys stfl] in it and the motor warm, but not in the same place. But, you know, our son was here for the wedding and so we thought he had borrowed it. When I got home I found Tony using a ballpoint pen. T noticed the initiate G. W. on it" • * * CHE made a visible effort and V pulled her thoughts away, took up the thread of her story. "We might have found out everything, if we bad questioned Eddie. We didnt We did not realize just bow much be was living in a fairy-story world. We talked instead of the microphones, their removal. When Eddie went to sleep, Kd Ston« pried up a piece of molding, cut the wires so they dropped down in a roll be didn't think could be,traced easily. 1 waited downstairs while he want up and cut the wires above. I pulled oo the piece but it wouldn't coma loose He cleaned up our traces, but be laft the equipment up tnen for removal later.
