She wondered drowsily what it was they did that sanded like tapping, very far off b'jt regular. It was true- that the i house creaked and cracked alarmingly as its atmosphere grew cooler. She was glad she knew the reason for it, because those sounds could not be laid to the rats, nor could the impression that she had beard a door, closing somewhere below. She was also glad, the next nomine, that she hadn't let her self imagine anything sinister, for was plain that at some time dur ing the night one of the other occupants oc-cupants of the house had arrived. Georgine saw him, to their shared sirprise, in the hall; a tall, youngish young-ish man, his blond hair in a mat of dishevelment, lightly clad in the lower half of his pajamas and ra emerging from the bathroom.

' At this seeming irrelevance Georgine was surprised to see Todd's lips tighten. He glanced at his hostess. She had turned off the spigot of the percolator, though his cup underneath it was only half full, and was returning his look intently, her eyes wide, her breast rising and falling with uneven breaths. , "Adeline Tillsit," said Mrs. Pea-body Pea-body softly.

Todd and Georgine gave each other a horrified horri-fied look, "I can't tell you how 6orry we are, Mrs. Peabody," Todd said gently. gen-tly. "I can only assure you I hadn't heard a word of your husband, nor of the family, from anyone; that is, not in connection with a murder. mur-der. Will you forgive us, and let us go as gracefully as possible?" "I don't know what you're talking talk-ing about, forgive you," said Nella Peabody fretfully. "What difference differ-ence would it make if you had heard about it? The fact's there." Georgine got up. "We'll never forget how good you've been to us, taking in perfect strangers like this. If you'll excuse me now, I'll put things in my suitcase and get hold of Barby " "Do you have to go?" Mrs. Peabody Pea-body looked up, startled. "I if Mr. McKinnon is interested in murders, mur-ders, at least he might want to hear what happened." "I'm sure he would," said Georgine Georg-ine somewhat dryly. "He he might be able to help me. I've never known the truth. Sometimes I think I may die if I can't get at the truth!" She must have shivered, for Mrs. Peabody said, "I'll make us some fresh coffee." Georgine did not meet Todd's look. For a moment mo-ment there was no sound in the kitchen except the homely ones of running water and a spoon clicking click-ing against metal. Mrs. Peabody's movements were nervously quick. Presently she sat down again, and the percolator began its first pale bubbling. "Now," she said, turning her gray eyes on Todd, "I'm going to tell you why you never heard any more about Miss Tillsit's death. And don't let me forget and let the coffee stew itself to nothing, because I'm likely" she laughed a little "to get passionate pas-sionate about this affair." Her mouth set hard for a moment. mo-ment. "The the worst of it is that after it began to dawn on me, I couldn't ask Gilbert He'd never opened the subject himself, and I couldn't, I couldn't probe and nag and have it look as if I " She stopped, and got up hastily to refill the cream pitcher. Todd lit his cigarette and Georgine's without with-out expression, without a meeting of eyes. When the woman had returned re-turned to the table and switched off the percolator, he said calmly, "I gather that all you know about the case is completely objective? That may be the best way for us to get the outline." Then he composed himself to listen, with his motionless motion-less type of attention. "The Tillsits were just about the earliest settlers around here. Those were the old ones, the pioneer pio-neer couple that came from Maine in the sixties. You've seen their pictures in the dining room, perhaps? per-haps? Adeline was the eldest, she'd be eighty-six now if she'd lived. Theron, her brother, was eight years younger, and Phoebe came last. The first generation is all dead, of course, and there's only Theron we call him the Judge left of the second. "Adeline never married. She bought their shares of this house from her brother and sister, and made it hers. She'd done pretty well with managing her share of the Inheritance, and though she didn't leave a huge estate, she could live comfortably enough for all that long life. I think it must have been in 1935 that she had her first stroke, she recovered from it partially at least, and went on living liv-ing here; only she had Susan La-bare, La-bare, a practical nurse, to look after her and run the house. She was quite a wonderful old lady : she wouldn't give way to her illness ill-ness any more than she could help. Susie couldn't keep her in bed any where as much as she wanted. Aunt Adeline got so she could move round the second floor with a cane, though of course she couldn't go up or down stairs. That's one of the clearest associations associa-tions 1 have with this house, coming com-ing in and listening to find out if she was up. You could hear her cane tapping, from any of these rooms." - She paused for a moment, looking look-ing down at her hands. Georgine glanced involuntarily at the ceiling. ceil-ing. Tapping. Tapping? Yet that sound she had wondered aooui, that was supposed to be made by the rats, had come from the attic; she would swear to it. Just the same tapping. "How much f her family was left?"

Addrer.S- The sounds in the garret were barely perceptible. It was a minute before he spoke. "Yes. I've heard her name," he said in that casual voice that was so restful, so unexcited. "She was very old when she died, wasnt she? And this house was a show-place show-place in its day. I remembered why I had thought I'd been here oeiore; one of my newspaper friends had a full set of photographs that were taken while she was still alive. They'd planned to run a feature story on it some time: famous belle of the eighties, that sort of thing; but I believe the war pictures pic-tures rather crowded it out." "Yes," Mrs. Peabody said, with a quiet that matched his, "she died on the same week-end that France fell. That was why there was no publicity at all; we were spared that, because nobody outside of town heard much about it." Her heart-shaped face looked set, and a patch of color stained her cheekbones. "Your newspaper friend, Mr. McKinnon, must have explained to you that the place where those photographs were taken had become the setting of a crime. What did he tell you about it?" "Very li'le that I can remember. remem-ber. I did watch the papers for a few weeks afterward, but I never saw any other mention of it." "There was a reason for that.
