At least she was giving out considerable information. He had learned why the caretaker's cabin was fixed up the %vay it was. It Was intended for a honeymoon house.

Mrs. W, No man should ever be permitted .to 'get the idea he is heaven's gift to womanhood — or even to one woman — c!nd lhat slipping a wedding rijig on his wife's finger automatically absolves him from any further obligations. Too olten a man believes that since he's made the lady a "Mrs." and raised her to the exalted status of a married woman, he can darn well do as he. pleases and she should be satisfied. The sooner these gentlemen — and 1 use the word sarcastically -- get,jolted out of their complacence, the better, Spme of them need just one lesson, others never learn, still others — unfortunately — never have to learn sinpe their wives just go on catering, being submissive and elevating king husband to emperor.

The aroma of good whiskey was heavy, but the cook,,"appeared in full possession of her faculties. "In a hurry to clean up. weren't you" Agnes Argyle demanded. "I'm always cleaning up,' 1 Mrs. Gelslrap whined.- "You ought to know how it is with housework. Let it get ahead of you and it's always ahead. And I'm not one to let things go.

You decided yet Whether or not I've sold out to the Carlsons" Jim was getting tired of having his thoughts explained to him. "Have you" he snapped Agnes locked ut Nancy. Her smile softened the bitter planes of her gaunt face. "And this is your wife" Jim made the introduction. After thai he was ignored. The two women appeared to come to an unspoken undevslandlnu. Jim wondered if it would make nny difference if ho stood on his head. Agnes snid, "Suppose you. tell me about this, Mrs. Dunn." "Nancy," she correct;d. "Yes. Tell me, Narlcy, all iibout your contacts with "Mrs. Kit. Right from the beginning." Jim coughed. "Just n minute be fore -we go into that." ' Agnes Argyle' said, "Go aWay. Go help 1he men or something. Your wife and I want to talk." Jim went into the basement.'The body was {-one. Tho elevator had been raised another foot or so.

She did not give him a chance to explain. She was hopping- mad, even paler with. h^r. rage. "I won't have it! I won't, have you lying to'me.

I locked it myself. "You were -plastered," Jim snid bluntly He turned to the sheriff. "The kitchcrj door was' unlocked, and Mrs, Qelstrap was passed out at the kitchen table," Mrs. Gelstrap objected. "Some people don't want othar people to have any rest at all. Maybe I did have a little drink? What of it? 1 ' Agnes Argyle asked. "Did you go to the basement at any time during the night?" "I should say not. I wo'uldn.t go down there after dark for all the money in the world." "And your bosa" "She slept right through. After I finally got her to take the pills.

"My wife and ! stay there." "Your wife. Where is she?" "At the cabin," J»ni snid. •: told her to stay there." Mrs. Argyle's expression said that such a command did not ne c e,ssarily mean ohedienpe.

Perhaps it was not unfair, only natural. Agnes Argylc listened to : whole tissues of. lies without batting ail eyelash. Her questioning of the truth might be logical.

I did not raise that platform." 'Somebody did," Sheriff Agnes said. She looked thoughtfully at Miss Wister and Mrs, Gelstrap. 'Possibly somebody attempted to help Angelica Joi^j. There's no reason that shouldn't be admitted, is there" "You believe this death was an accident" "It could have b<n Another ^ac cident.
