Or was that rehearsed' ' "The poiirt," Mrs. Oswald snapped, "is whether or not you're accepting employment." "I'm working for Mrs. Kit." "That may be no hindrance," the old woman said. She plucked at the covers, pulled them higher. "You savecft my life last night. You owe me something for that. You're ,-,ffouni;. You can use money, and I "-"Rave plenty. I want lo know! Why did you save my life if you're going to lei my last ysai-s be clouded with fear and suspicion" Jim said, "All right I'll go on "You know you might have wrecked my car by misdirecting us" tears started running unheeded and unchecked down Sheriff Agnes' face.

She wen: on, "Better include Philip. He's almost a family member, by by" apparently she couldn't think of a word she wanted lo use. "The first thing" Jim said, "is that I'll want to know the exact relationship that exists here." Mrs. Oswald nodded. Sho lot hoi- eyes half close, appeared on the verge of sleep.

"I think you know what I mean want (he truth about th? vfalalion- ship between you and Mrs. Gle- strap." "All right," Kit slid defiantly. "It's nothing to be ashamed of. We're sisters." "Stepsisters," Mrs. Geltrap corrected whcezily. "And we're livi proof that stepsisters do get along. Kit was always the pretty one/' "But you have the brains, Sue,' Kit said.

"Sue always said it was just as easy to fall in love with a man with money. And I want you to get one thnig straight. Peter is my husband now, and we're very much in love." "Why isn't he around to help you now?" "Peter is afraid of Mrs. Hiiton. Actually afraid. You've seen thnt horrid whip. He Peter has told me of his mother's sudden rages, of the beatings she gava him as a child. Beatings for him, and for his sister Angelica too." Jim was much interested to iearn that Mrs. Kit was far enough outside the family circle so she had not been told that Angelica was Agnes Argyle's daughter. "You brought up the fact Mrs. Argyle was in California at the time of the tragedy there. Do you suspect her?" "Something's wrong -vith her," Kit said. "Something happened to her. She's too hard." "Do you two taaliove Angelica's deal was accidental?" "Angelica went to The Spires because she had something of great value hidden there. Something worth a second attempt to regain Possibly something which would give her a hold, an upper hand over Mrs. Oswald or Mrs. Hilton, "You were supposed to come up here with a report.
