His companion went ahead, opened the door of the cab. and stood on one side. Another man sauntered along the pavement As Mannering got into the taxi and sat down, he jaw the newcomer open the door of his own car and climb in. He tried to relax as the cab moved towards King's Road. They were near the corner when the Mannering's car overtook them. At the same .moment, a neighbor from one of the lower flats turned the corner and recognized the car. He stood staring, puzzled at seeing another driver at the wheel. Mannering leaned forward. hop- Ing to make the man see him, to .make some sign. His captor kicked his ankle. Mannering sank back, the article stinging Mannering's captor took a pair o/ dark glasses from his pocket. "Put these on." he ordered. Mannering hesitated; the gun poked into his ribs. He put on the glasses. There were thick side-pieces, more like goggles than spectacles, and when they were on, there was only a glimmer of light »t the sides. The new darkness, amounting to blindnciis. was .a trick he hadn't expected: more evidence of. careful planning. He fidgeted with thelglasses. as if to get them comfortable. They were a shade too small: luckily, they flttcd below hls^ bruise. He moved hip rlRht hand. It was gripped in vise-like fln- [fr .

The cab stopped, and the man whispered Into his ear; "Get up—and move forward." The pain in Mannering's arm increased ss he moved. He feared the bone would snap. He groped with his free hand and touched fingers. A man on the pavemenjt gripped his wrist, pulling him toward the door. Then the pressure on his arm eased. The man Ln front said. "Step down."

Mannering moved cautiously His heel caught on the edge of the running board, he would have pitched forward hut for the support of the man tn fronL At last he stood on the pavement; two women -were walking along, little heels going tap-tap-tap-tap In brisk unison, and growing fainter. A gate squeaked on its hinges. "Careful here, steps." said his guide. irive steps, and then a wiry mat beneath his feet. Another squeak, and he knew that the front door of the house was opening; so he wouldn't be able to see the street; even if he dislodged the glasses, the glare would dazzle him. He went on, and greater darkness fell on him, even the glimmer at the sides of the glasses was blotted out. The door closed. , He was a prisoner, and helpless —and little more than half-an- hour apo, he had been In his own fiat tolling with L/orna. The man behind him took bis arm again, just above the eltxv They were steel-like fingers, giving a hint of the pain they could cause. "Mind th« stairs," growled t man In front.

They turned right and walked along a carpeted passage which ed from the landing; their muf- flled footsteps were uncann;. They paused, presumably outside a door, and he heard a sharp tap. A man called: "Come in." Even through the door there was a quality in that voice which Mannering would not easily tor- get. It wasn't deep or harsh, but id a peculiarly penetrating tone. Mannering could imagine the man's character from that tell-tale voice: hard and cruel and ruthless; bad. The door opened Immediately and he was taken inside. "We've got him," said his captor, superfluously. "No trouble." "So. Mannering," said the man inside. He laughed softly unpleasantly "That isn't exactly what 1 was led to expect by a study of your past activities." Mannering stopped when the hand was taken from his arm. He senseo that he was standing in front o! the speaker — who was perhaps two yards in front of him. Mannering said: "Age takes its toll, sou know I'm not so reckless as f used to be." "Lucky for you." "There's always a.compensation „ you look bard enough for it." said Mannertng- "Do you mind If I take off my glasses?" "If you take them off, U you catch so much as a glimpse of me. you will never return to your wile." . , A CHAIR was pushed behind him. against his legs Belore he could sit down, his captor patted his sides felt beneath his armpits, even dipped mtc nis pockets. Satisfied that there was no weapon, he put his hands on Mannering's shoulders and forced him down. It was an arm chair. A cigaret was pushed between his Ups. and be felt the gentle glow from a lighter very clos« to his eyes. He drew in the smoke gratefully, and settled back. "All right Parr. You can both wait outside." Mannering sensed a moment of curious tension, a clash ol personalities 1 , it ended when Parr—s name to remember—moved away from him. and the door opened and closed softly (To Re Continued) Television— Tonite, Tomorrow WMCT, Memphis, Channel 5 FRIDAY NIGHT, MAY I 6:00 Dennis Day 6:30 Life of Biley T.OO Big Story 7:30 Hopalong Cassidy 8:00 .Cavalcade of Sports 8:46 Greatest Fights of Century 9:00 The Doctor 9:30 News Reporter 9:45 Tonight In SporU 9:55 Weather 10:00 Names the Same 10:30 Pour Star Playhouse 11:00 News 11:05 To Be Announced 11:35 To Be Announced 12:05 News 12:10 Sign Off SATURDAY, MAY 9 9:00 News and Meditation 9:15 Tops 9:30 Rootle Kazootte 10:00 Big Top 11:00 Pride of Southland 11:30 Mr. Wizard 12:00 Cowboy G-Man . 12:30 Super Circus 1:30 Quiz 'Em 2:00 Horse Races 2:30 Treadwell Band 3:00 To Be Announced 3:30 To Be Announced 4:00 Date With Judy 4:30 Aldrich Family 5:00 Kukla, Fran & Ollie 5:30 Strike It Rich 6:00 My Hero 6:30 Amateur Hour 7:00 Show of Shows 8:30 Lone Ranger i 9:00 Juniper Junction 9:30 Abbott & Costello 10:00 News 10:10 Weather 10:15 Sightseeing With Swayzeea 10:30 Wrestling 11:30 News 11:35 Balance Your Budget 12:05 News 12:10 Sign Off WARNING ORDER Lawrence L.
