XXIX VTGGO SAND had instructions to the letter. [The silence was so absolute I followed fancied I could hear the muted ! voices of insects in the dark j woods on shore.

No two ravens could ever have become as intimately associated in his mind with sheer bad news as we ! 0 ^s 'which' "had gone before, were. I Carey came to the bridge rail "Mr. Dibble," Lynch said, "will i an( j leaned forward to peer into no doubt have told you that we I the night found the chests." •' Sand ponderously nodded. Not even that cheered him. "But of what, good? Each hour I DOW question as to whether I At the fourth identical splash, perhaps a trifle louder than the LYNCH, standing just beside me, had been slouching on his elbows. 1 felt rather than saw shall be alive in the next hour. "There is nothing I am sure," said Lynch briskly, "which cannot be satisfactorily arranged. We know the exact location of the remaining chests. They are readily accessible and darkness has now fallen. I advise you to have Carey take the yacht at once to the quay where we lay last night and get them. It you have some dependable men who could rig a hoist at the edge of the west gun parapet. At that point the cliff drops sheer to the water. Manhandling them down the trail is not impossible, but it would take mpre time. At this moment that is not a commodity in which ; any of us are very rich." ( In a matter of seconds Sand had pounced on the hand phone and was barking orders in all directions. The Danish chief engineer, duly accompanied by two oilers, was summoned to the bridge and Lynch briefly explained th*problem involved in erecting a temporary hnnd hoist by which the heavy boxes could be lowered directly to the sea. The whole operation had b«*n [conducted with a minimum of Ifujii and in extraorduttty Quiet. him gradually stiffen, then stand upright There was still another splash. Carey had brought the Vit- tpria around in a wide circle and was now lining her up for the delicate maneuver of running us on a straight course directly into the narrow rectangle of the concrete-sided slip. The high cliffs dead ahead and the dense shadows looked as black as the depths of a cave. By contrast, the starlit Immensity of space above the cliffs seemed almost bright. There was another, and even louder, splash. Without turning, Lynch suddenly shot out his left hand and peremptorily snapped his fingers. "Captain! If you please. Have you some night glasses?" Carey disappeared . in the chart room and obediently came back with some heavy binoculars which he put into Lynch's still outstretched hand. Bracing his elbows on the rail, Lynch beg,1n quickly to focus them on a rioint straight abend of us and upward. Lynch's shoulders began to shake so the binoculars jiggled. I stared nt him in amazement. H< wa* "Voijel! Poor Gros Oiseau. Faiiaful to the last fiiere. Mr. Sand, goes glimmering your ruddy gold." All was now plain, of course. The self-appointed guardian of the fortress and of the Nazi retirement fund, that poor innocent whom the officers of the U-976 had shot and apparently left behind for dead, had evidently watched us from close concealment during the afternoon. He had seen us discover the treasure trove which was the fixation of his broken mind He had seen us cart away one box of it and a dead man's body Now. with the sheltering night to give him courage, to prevent strangers laying profane hands on any of the rest, he was hiding it m a still safer place—at the bottom of the sea. I was shouldered aside by Viggo Sand so violently I almost fell. He was carrying a heavy rifle he had snatched down from a rack in the chart room, • * * LYNCH saw what he was doing, leaped, and struck the barrel up. The shot reverberated deafeningly and harmlessly among the hills. There was another splash. "You fool!" Lynch spat. "If you had hit him it would have been murder. I'd have seen to it you'd have hanged for it!" He yanked the gun unceremoniously out of Sand's hands and flung it spinning away across the deck of the bridge. Sand was shaking with rag* and frustration. "Carey," he growled, "what te the depth of the water at that point?" The captain seemed to me more tense with disappointment than Sand himself. 'I was only now chocking on the chart, sir. The cliff at the far end there goes right down. The depth is marked at 50 fathoms." "Three hundred feet," Lynch said rcflec ively. "Rather below the possible working level for both helmet and aqualung divers. They will hav« to be recovered, it at all, by grappling."
