When be real- lized Lynch and I were at hie ibeek he fell back as if be bad seen ghosts. At Lynch's cheery: "Good evening, Goncalves!" the poor man almost dropped his gun. Visions of dressings-down and condign punishment were whirling through his mind . I had a notion that discipline under Carey must be of much the same order as aboard the Bounty [under Captain Bligh. f Then out of the surrounding darkness leapt the moon-like face of Viggo Sand. "Good evening, gentlemen." Lynch talked fast "Good evening, sir," he said briskly and rather loudly. "Mr. Dcane was just saying we must be sure to put in a word for Goncalves here. He carried out his orders. Most correctly. He told us your instructions were that no one was to go ashore. He did not pass. We went by other means. We knew, of course, that those orders did not apply to us. You heard the shots from the fortress just now? They were fired at us from ambush. Misses, happily, all of them. By jsomeone from the ship—" Lynch was a marvel. . . . Here was Reginald Dibble, Sand's own confidential secretary, listening to that outrageous lie. And not interrupting. But what reason, I wondered, had Lynch for thinking that Dibble would not set Sand straight the moment they were alone? Two possibilities occurred to me. The first was that Lynch might guess Dibble would find the truth—that he had tamely handed his gun over and let him bang away with it—embarrassing- ; Sand's reply WM a k»« time j in coming. He was breathing j deeply. **t must admire your I zeal, Bfr. Lynch. B* I do not like you." "Your personal feeling toward me, sir," said Lynch with even more than his usual briskness, "is immaterial- You have employed Mr. Deane and myself to do a job. We propose to do it Preferably, with your help. Now, this bridge game. How long did you play?" Sand's respiration was clearly audible. You could have counted up to 10. "It may be I was mistaken. It may be that you amuse me. I will answer your questions. It was only for a little time. While we were playing the second hand Mr. Souhani complained he bad a most violent pain"—Sand touched his own forehead—"between his eyes., He went to bis cabin. Soon also Herr Braun." **I suppose, sir, you didnl check on them?" "Correct" "A pity. And TOW o-wn movements, Mr. Sand?" "You amuse me very much." Sand's chuckle came again. This time it sounded more genuine. And Viggo Sand walked softly away from us down the deck and disappeared into the darkness. When he was safely out of earshot I beard Dibble let out his breath. It was as if he had been holding it for a long, long time. ''You also, Mr. Lynch." he said in a low voice, "have a taste for Kving dangerously." * * * I WENT in search of Lily Wyndam. I had decided not to mention to Lynch that I bad briefed Lily on almost everything we knew. I was not sure Lynch would approve. Yet I was sure I had been right Or, I hoped so. She wa£ stifl with the same large book in the same large chair in the lounge where I bad last seen her. "When I think," she said, "at \ TODAY IS YOUR LAST CHANCE To See THRILLCADE The daredevils for whom danger holds no terror find inferno- like flames and heat one of the greatest threats to their lives as this montage of Aut Swenson THRILLCADE stunts indicate. These are just a few examples of the thrills in store for excitement-seeking spectators when the helldrivers of THRILLCADE appear today at the HE Ark. District Fair. Burning barrier crashes, the treacherous "slide for life", and other perilous feats that tax the courage of even the most hardened stuntmen are included in the THRILLCADE repertoire.

Do yo« think « I jumped overboard anybody would pay «oy attention to me?* 1 "It would depend of course," I said judiciously, "on where you did it* Til make a note of it On)y in shallow water and on the nicest sort of day." Lily eyed mj gray pullover and mud- stained sneakers, "What bav* you been up to?" With exaggerated furtiveness I made sure there was DO on* within bearing. Then I told her. "You really mean, then, aJl that money may be real?" "It's extremely likely." "And the reason you are telling me all this, Robert," Lily purred seductively, "is that your plan is for you and roe to steal it?" "Certainly not hi the first place, I don't know where it is. In the second place, the doggone stuff weighs two tons.** "Your righteousness is now explained. What then?" "I have an errand for you. Your boy friend Siegfried is pretty well bunged up. I thought out of your womanly tenderness you ought to go and find out how he's getting oo. if he was really whanged on the head as hard as he seemed to be he might even be addled enough to tell you what it's all about" • • * LILY purposefully stood up. ''You'll hang around outside? If that storm trooper so much as lays a hand on me I'll tell some men I know in London to bomb Berlin again." It has been insufficiently remarked in contemporary literature that most modern doors have no keyholes. I found this one hadn't Siggy's cabin had a lock, yes. But it was of the cylindrical type which opened with a thin key. I could neither " see nor hear through it And the door was thick. By plastering my head close against it all I could distinguish were two voices But I knew in the first place Meer and Lily were in :here, I couldnt make out * word they said.
