XVII THE unfinished wall behind which we wore now crouching was the northern boundary of a fortress An unfinished fortress Though much of it was cluttered with weeds and vines and even a few small trees had managed to take root, enough ol the enclosure remained clear to show it was a massive concrete construction. Lynch gripped my knee "I've got it! 1 know where we are." I poked him sharply with an elbow. Lynch froze. A blob of shadow oo that western rampart had risen »nd materialized into the shape of a standing man. Its back was to us. For a long minute it stood motionless, clearly outlined against the sky. Because we expected him to be here and because the figure was tail and had wide shoulders and thin bipi. U was Mecr He crossed the upper platform and began to descend one of-the stone stairways. For « moment we lost sight ol him. Then, Hen Siegfried M e e r unconcernedly snapped on « flashlight He proceeded carefully to exr aminc the vertical face ol the structure which supported the higher platform. We now saw what we hid not been able to sec oetorc. thai at lhi> bottom of eoch ot the flights ol steps was a deeply recessed door, doori, It itemed to ow It that distance, ind In the flash- Mghi's beam, of steel or Iron, Al the tourth door.

U • Mack lit- houottc and a flashlight can show astonishment and doubt, they showed it The reason was evident trom wh*re we were The outlines of doors Nos. 1. 2 and 3, except (or a certain amount of tropic growth which clung lo them, had been plainly visible. And easily accessible to anyone who might have keys. Door No. 4 was totally obscured by * pile of rocks. "Siggy," I whispered to Lynch, "seems to be a mile confused Something new had been added." It was Lynch's turn to elbow me He jabbed a pointing finger excitedly. Meer was not alone. A figure was plainly visible in the moonlight Had we not t>«n so intent on watching Me*r, we must have seen it long before. H was a man, of course. * Meer spun around with • violent start. For a split second the boam ot hie flashlight played whitely on i face almost lost in great tangle of blonde oeard and a man* of unkempt hair. Meer s c r e a me d—a piercing, agonizing, nerve-jangling scream. When Meer turned toward him, with the moonlight on'his (ace. the huge body instantly became galvanized with fury. With a wild cry he flung himself upon Meer • * • LYNCH got there first, I an Instant later. We were none too soon. The two men were In a thrashing muddle on the ground, the bearded giant uppermost He had both hands around Meer's throat and was pounding his head murderously upon the stones He was shouting, "Dieb! Verrieter! Moerdert" I got hold of one arm, Lynch the other It wa.< like seizing the trunk ot a stout tree him, 'he big man staggered to his feet. He had let go of Meer He was dressed in a kind of smock and loose trousers so ragged they were nearly in ribbons He was barefoot. In our close embrace the creature stank of dirtiness. A mannered, self - possessed voice at our elbows said: "Like me to lend a hand?" The voice belonged to Reginald .Dibble. He was standing not two yards from us. looking in the moonlight very unruffled. He was —of all things—smoking a cig- aret His attention was on Siegfried Meer ,, Panting, dazed, almost helpless, Meer struggled to his feet He stood half-leaning against the concrete wall near one of the iron doors. Again, many things happened in swift succession. There was a red flash: a reverberation boom which then seemed to echo for many seconds through the hills; and an even louder—and closer —CLANG of metal; the angry, insect-like zzzzz-ing of fragments of lead bounding about amid the rocks Someone had shot At which one of us it was impossible to say. With a coolness and precision of action of which I would never have thought him capable. Dibble jerked a small revolver from a hip pocket, leveled it and fired. 'You saw where it came from?" Lynch demanded. Dibble waved' his revolver. Its nickel plating glittered. "Yes. By that opening where you chaps came in." • • • DIBBLE made a gesture with his feniale-sized gun before putting it away. "Viggo sent me ashore with what one might call a 'watching brief.' I'd frankly no idea there'd be so much to watch." He was s t h n A \ n g, half- crouched, near that iron door against which the bullet had struck Both hands covered his face. He was sobbing hysterically. Lynch reached Meet In OM stride, "See a ghost Lieutenant?*' ' ."Jal Jft!" * "Say, there's some real people at our tchool play thii year—not just papas and mamas!"
