Walnut Phone 3-33R1 XXVH LYNCH went down first, carefully picking his way past that sprawled body I followed him. <Reg Dibble came down after us While Dibble and 1 held the •torches steady. Lynch turned ;Braun over. The heavy bullet •had gone through his head and 'splattered on the stone Except jfor that familiar trench coat and (the fragments of the pince-nez, recognition would have been difficult Lynch gingerly put a hand first in one coat pocket of the dead man, then the other. From the second he drew out a large sheet of stiff paper which had been carelessly folded. On the paper were three separate plans, or maps. One was of the promontory of the Mole St. Nicolas. 'Another was a floor plan of the fortress. The third was a sketch of the magazine, with the trap by which we had descended clearly marked. "Your guess, Robert," said Lynch, "was correct. Meer tried to deal honestly with Sand. Not bccaxise of any love of fair deal ing but because it was certainly ho part of his purpose that through some chance accident to himself the chests should be lost forever. I am afraid our Sea Hero will be disappointed when he learns that his admired Heir Braun deceived him." "Unless," I oflered, "he knows it already." In the far corner of the chamber was a neat pile of oblong metal boxes, five across and four high. My guess was that they were made of Duralumin. Each was banded in both directions .with thin strip* erf it«*l held by a twist of wire and • lead s«al. T tried one of them. It was as heavy ax lead. But this was gold., oob "Bloody dollars," snapped Lynch. "So few coins," Reg countered haughtily, "are really sanitary." "The immediate business before this committee." I said, "is what do we do next?" Lynch nodded. "You mean of course the question of jurisdiction. The normal procedure would be to summon the iota! authorities. But I do not think Lhe situation can be called usual. Interests and personalities are involved which transcend any local interest." He addressed himself to Dibble. "As Deane here can tell you, I am so much accustomed to working in o<id places and, shall I say, in uncommon situa- t«-ms, that I've grown used to H-alin? with these matters in my own fashion. In this instance I think,' then, I shall keep to my own bad habits.'* Dibble nodded. "If you care, I'm sure Viggo would thoroughly approve.** Lily Wyndam's voice came to us from above. "You'd better come up. We have visitors." * * • WE waited for them, blinking like owls at the sun outside. De- Jongh and four white uniformed sailors came toward us across the great weed-grown courtyard of the fort He touched the peak of his cap in a polite salute. "Mr. Sand has s*nt me ashore with a message. Mr. Braun seems to have disappeared. The ship has been thoroughly searched. Mr. Sand sent me ashore to tell you that we can't And him." "We have,' said Lynch. Lynch took charge like any competent policeman. Since we had no camerat with* which to moke a photographic record, he insisted that 1 all of us. including tht lour large eyed sail on dc- Jongh had brought with him, memorize the position and the appearance of Braun's body. There were no long poles, no canvas, no nothing, with which to improvise a stretcher. And with the danger that somebody might come by at any mompnt and catch us in the acutely illegal occupation of making ofT witb a murdered cadaver, there was certainly no time to send to the yacht and get one. But discipline on the Vittoria was beyond reproach. At a low- voiced command from deJongh, the Pole and Spaniard look Braun's body up by its heels and below the armpits and started off with it, deJongh going ahead of them to reconnoiter. "Lynch, old boy." It was Dibble. "A suggestion. We've got two more pairs of arms here." He indicated the other sailors. "Suppose we lake at least one of these cases back with us. A penny gained, so to speak, is a penny earned." Lynch gave me the impression the idea did not appeal to him, but since he could think of nothing to say against it, he nodded. • * * THE heavy lifeboat in which deJongh and his crew had come ashore was moored at the steps where we had left the speedboat They deposited Braun's body in it under the cross scats where, if anyone was watching from the shore, it would not be seen. Dibble directed the stowing of the heavy chest, also out oj sight, on the speedboat's floor under the rear seat. We had not been forgotten. The discovery of Braun's disappearance, our own prolonged slay ashore, then the long absence of deJongh had aroused a maximum of curiosity. Sand, with Miss Wyndam clinging tri his arm, was at the head of the stairway. Near them, I sighted Dr. Lund. Even Paul Souhnnl was on hand. "I think," said Rog Dibble in a low voice, "we'd best leave that little box of ours where H is. Viggo wouldn't care to have it advertised."
