He w a n t e d to leave a Riinrd for Mrs. Ordell's hotly but James said, "No need, whal'.s done U done." \V« reached the l.ndr.p, wet, , f i lightened and *.id, n m l we huddled around the fire in mute misery. .fnmcs tried to telephone lo Mine Valley for the pui.i c. !!ut the : 1 i R h t n i n ^ had dotie its w o r k ; the wire was dead. Then q u i c k l y , out of the stricken silence hy the lin-Mde, Dr. Hnhcrti, fdrert the crowd. "Jiimr;:," he MiiH rlmrlly nnrl tn nn r.entlr Inno, " w h r i c weie you when this thini* happrnrd?" Mr. James tiCMtatrd just Uic fraction of a second. "I was in the pantry hack of the kitchen open- ins a has of sugar for the cook. And," he added as an rmgry afterthought, "what the devil do you mean by asking me?" "I'll temporarily represent the law," Dr. Roberts replied evenly. "Jeff was out. too. nnd reached Mrs. Ordell before the rest of us. Where were you?" he curtly asked the boy. · · * TEFF looked terribly serious but " answered fast enough, "I was in my tent putting my suitcase under the bed in case Ihc tent leaked. I heard a scream nnd rars in the direction it came frnm. I heard a sound in the Ordrll tent and I went in--1 guess--just as she died." Roberts considered Jeff Downey's reply fnr a moment, "When dirt you reach the tent T mean, how Jong before we reached it? ' "Why." said Jeff rather desperately, "probably two or three minutes." "Then she died as ymi reached her, presumably. How far is your tent from the Ordclls' tent?" Jeff stared at him. "I didn't do it!" His voice rose to a sharp, hiph staccato of protest. The silence seemed a terrible accusation. Jeff was deathly pale and. more than ever, I pitied him. These people were very clib about suspectinR others of murder. I felt smothered In horror nnd fear. "Professor Ordell," Dr. Roberts' voice broke the silence, "what was your wife doing when you left her?" The Professor raised a pileous face. "She WHS packing some thinps tn hrr suitcase to protect them fc-om the nun. Hut Dr. Roberts, w h a t rifiht have you lo question us?" *M have," he replied, "thr rifihl invested in me hy my eitucnship. Now to continue. Why did you not wait lo walk hark to Uic Unlge with your wife?" The Professor swallowed, blew his nose and then said, "She asked me to come back." "Why? Had any word transpired that might help to explain this tragedy?" "None whatever," repeated Ordell and as he spoke he turned and looked searchingly at Jeff. Then he once more bowed his head i n t o his hands. The Doctor suddenly drew a gun from his pocket and held it so that it covered the group. "I'm sorry," Roberts said steadily, "every hand up or I'll shoot and I don't mean anything out just that. Miss Curtis, will you kindly remove the weapons thai you will find on everyone:" My knees were shaking like the leaves of the storm-beaten, quaking aspen trees that srcw near the I-xxi.qe windows, but, somehow, I forced myself to follow the Doctor's command. He seemed, at least, capable and, I prayed, honest Professor Ordell astonished me by tossing a revolver onto the table. To my complete horror and amazement, I found lh«t everyone present, save one and myself, carried a gun or knife. Miss tlanscn carried a pair of sharp shears in n shealh of handkerchiefs. Mr. Alberts carried an automatic in his hip pocket. Kis wife carried a small revolver i.; her dress. Mr. .lames had T pistol in his left breast coat pocket. Mrs. James drew .1 small revolver from the bosom of her dress. Two of the college boys ca. i"d knives. Rhumba earned n razor. Jeff, alone, hhd no weapor · · WHEN all Ihe weapons were " cnlhcrcd together Dr. i!ohrrls said, "And yours, Mi«s C u r t j ; ? " "I havp no wc.ipon o( «nj Kind," I snapped. "Aid A-hnt Is more, I believe i'm nmonp gangsters, nnd If ever this storm abntcs ar.d 1 can net out of here alive I'll t u r n the lot of you ever to Ihe polirf!" It was at that moment t h a t Mrs. .lames stepped forward and tcai-ched me quickly and em- cienlly. As she finished withom »ny formidable ro«u)t, she ««vc me a tarried look.
