His name: William F. Bragg. XXVI D1OGENE plainly asked us while we lunched what we were up to. I said we were interested in ihe old fortress and since we happened on an old key which fit the door below, WP u'ere making a thorough exploration. He seemed satisfied The secret of the 20 chests apparently had been well kept. He was willing, in his halting French, to talk oC the bearded man tie had called Gros Oiseau. Years ago. it may have been icmard the end of the Big War. some people of the district had found him lying in the woods not ft*r from here- Diogene touched Ms right temple. The white man had been badly wounded—here. The peasants took him home and in time he got well. With a smile and a hcadshake Diogene touched his temple again. But he was not right in the head. 1 When he had tried to tell who ihe was, he had flapped his arms. They had laughed and ever since then he had been called Dig Bird. , Then, being a natural gentleman and having drunk wine and taken "bread* with us, Diogene rose, saluted us and went away. "Do you recall the legend," said Lynch contemplatively when he had gone, "of the burial of Kut.lai Khan with all his staggering wea|th somewhere in the Gobi Desert? No one has ever been able to find the treasure because everyone who accompanied Kublai on that last jour- .ney was put to death. The practice here does not appear to hav« bean so thorough." 'IVilh some force we made the : key fit the other doors. Doors Nrs. 1, 2, and S were creaked on en—upon the same must {now, the same emptiness. Lily, neglected, took one of the flashlights and began to conduct her. own Investigations ol the •mpty chamber* i I A few minutes later I heard 1 her call in a low voice. "Hey, I Bobby! Mr. Lynch. I've found ' something." » * * LJI.Y was in the near, left- hand corner of the stone room behind No. 4 door. • I gave Lily A-PIus for thoroughness. A thin piece of metal about half an inch wide and some eight inches long, with a saw. edge. lay against the wall almost covered by the'gritty dust. "A broken hacksaw blade," Lynch said reflectively. "Very badly rusted . . . been there a long time. But clearly not since this place was built." Lynch flung the hacksaw blade, our first and only clue, abruptly away from him. He didn't even look where it went. While we stared at him he dashed to the pile of stones, picked out the biggest of them, came staggering back with it to where we stood and began to bang it up and down on the stone floor. The sound h« now made with his pounding was a hollow and resounding "boom," Lynch dropped hip stone, rose, dusted his hands and said: "There is a second chamber below this one. I've bwn mentally indolent. When this fort was constructed, shells of the big coastal defense guns of the typ« which it was doubtless the intention to have mounted here, were backed by an additional booster charge of smokeless powder contained in silk bags. The shells and the bags were always stored separately to avoid danger of the powder being ignited from sparks produced by any. handling of the shells. Odd! The furniture of the mind contains these random fragments of information. But It takes some cue, like the hacksaw blade Mini Wyndam 90 fortuitously found to turn them up." Lynch took Ui« flashlight from Lily's hand and returned to the corner where she had found the rusted blade. "I do wish I had a whiskbiGcm!" Lynch made do with a pocket handkerchief. At about the twentieth swipe he hit pay dirt. It was a tiny circle of metal less than half an inch in diameter, level with the concrete floor- It was not surprising we had not discovered, it before. Less than a teaspoonful of dust was sufficient to conceal it, "Excellent mechanics, these chaps. This, you will observe, lias been sawed off and bored hollow, for about half an inch, leaving screw threads. I'm afraid my search of Meer's cabin was incomplete. I am sure he must have in his possession a ring bolt which would fit this socket." He frowned. "Did you, Miss Wyndam, say that when Meer went to Braun'a cabin, you heard a clinking sound? As if he might have two metallic objects in his pocket?" "Yes," said Lily shortly. • » • WITH his handkerchief he now quickly uncovered the crack of the trap door. It had become a very grimy handkerchief indeed. "It may be difficult," said Lynch matter-of-factly, "to get a proper purchase with no lifting bolt But if you two will bear down on the far end ther« • I will see what I can do." . Lynch rattled around in the worn satchel and this time produced a foot-long steei rod. Lynch pushed it into the bolt hole, then forced it toward him. There was a second of stubborn hesitation, then the heavy concrete trap swung up and back. Lily Wyndam screamed as'we directed the flashlights downward. Stone steps led down into the lower chamber. On them, a man was lying. His head was only a few feet below us. He was hideously dead. A bullet of heavy caliber had struck him squarely in the face. Under .that blast it had all but disintegrated. "Braun!" someone whispered. <T« BC CMtl Attention: Men of the 461st Wing!
