MYSTERY

"Who shot her?" cried Williams as he rushed into the Beartown Hospital only minutes after his ex-wife died from a bullet through her head,
"Just a minute, Mr. Williams," said the Beartown Constable.  "I'll have to ask you a few routine questions.  Although divorced for the past eight months, you have been living in the same house with your ex-wife, have you not?"
"That's correct," replied Williams.
"Had any trouble recently?" asked the Constable.
"Well, yesterday, when I told her I was going on a business trip, she threatened to commit suicide.  In fact, I grabbed a bottle of iodine from her as she was about to drink it.  When I left last evening at seven, however, telling her I was spending the night with friends in Montpelier, she made no objection.  While returning home this afternoon, I called my house and the maid answered." said Williams.
"Just what did the maid say?" asked the Beartown Constable.
"Oh, Mr. Williams, they took Ann to the Beartown Hospital half an hour ago.  Please go directly there."
"The maid was crying and I couldn't get any details from her; so I hurried here.  Where is she?"

"The nurse will take you." indicated the Constable.
"A strange arrangement," said the Doctor,  "A man and a woman living together after being divorced for eight months."
"A queer case indeed, Doctor," mused the Beartown Constable,  "I'll be arresting Williams momentarily.  If he didn't shoot her himself, I'm sure he knows who did."
