I am sitting at a desk U'Hh a small automatic in Eront of me. and that automatic is fitted with a silencer The only sound you would near would oe a soft sneeze 1 am an excellent shot, especially with small arms. Don't be foolish. Just answer my questions." "It seems a silly parlor game." said Mannering. "but ii that's the way you want it. I'll play " "Yes. you'll play." said the other. A match scraped, and Manner- ;ng caught a whin" of smoke from a cigar. "Why did you examine the Bookshelves in the study at Lithom Hall?" Mannering stared through the misty darkness towards the voire. but kept silent He heard a creak as the man shifted hir position, sensed tension again: the man was desperately anxious to know the answer. . "They squeaked," said Mannering. "They what?" "Squeaked Made peculiar noises And Gloria—I expect you know about Gloria—thought she l|ad seen a body with the nead almost severed £rom the shoulders. It wasn't there when 1 v;cn! to look, so 1 poked about a bit" The man breathed heavily; the cigar smoke was stronger; dearer • "Why'" ;' "To see whether 1 could find i secret door -said Mannering iow- erinj Im voict U> * whisper. "Houses like Lithom Hall are tuli of surprises, and ever since 1 was a boy I've wanted to discover a secret passage. His words drowned movement, but a stinging blow caught him on the side of the head, set the dynamo throbbing again, made him surge with hatred of this man. The calmness of the voice surprised him. "Don't waste my time. So you were fool enough to look tor a man *ho didn't exist." "Didn't tie?" "The girl is mad," said the man contemptuously t • • lyTANNERING kept silent; the other went back to his chair which creaked. "You also cut a piece from the carpet, after marking it with white chalk. Why did you do that?" M I love acting like Sherlock Holmes," said Mannering "There was a spot of something red Could have been blood, could have been red ink I.took it away for chemical analysis, because il tt proved to be blood, it would suggest that ~ loria hadn't been nightmarlng," "Where is it now?" "Reposing on the laboratory bench at Scotland Yard." said Mannering. It's a pity you went to Scot- and Yard." the man said harshly 'Did you tell them that you thought the girl had really seen body?" "No." "I warned you not to lie to me." "1 told Bill Bristow that 1 thought she might have done and that the red spot ought to be analyzed. I also'said I washed my hands of the affair One bump enough for me." "Since I heard you were at Jthom Hall. I've made some inquiries You have a reputation for being an amateur sleuth with more daring than the police There was a time when the sreal John Man- iierlne would have probed Into this on 1115 own " "OJd MM ow U* now do the work. I'm iust a consultant." The man hesitated before he said: "You say you've told the police everything. Have you told your wife?" That came out sharply, calculated to catch him off his guard. He understood, in a single illuminating flash, that this man, whom he had never seen but whom he would never forget, would use any means to get what he wanted— even menace Lorna. "My wife doesn't care for the detective in me—that's why 1 went to Scotland Yard." • • • ""THERE was a long pause; Mannering hated every moment of it "There are two things I can do with you." said the man at the desk, slowly "The first is to kill you The second, to put you out oi the way. in some lonely spot where you can languish until I've finished." Mannering said; "If it has to be one or the other, I prefer the second. But couldn't you think again?" 'I could hand you over to Pan- Tor questioning," said the man softly. The chair creaked. He was standing again. Next moment Mannering felt a cold hand on his face. Fingers touched the. bruise gently, then suddenly prodded. Agony shot through his head. "There is a third alternative." The voice was as cruel as the pain he caused as he pressed again. "I could give you some work. I have valuable jewels which I should like valued, and you're an expert. 1 shall probably want to dispose of some of these through legal channels. Would you object to disposing of some of my possessions through your shop, Mannering?" Mannering moved his right nand, and it brushed ,against the buttons of the man's waistcoat So his captor was standing to hli right, and leaning forward slightly. "It would depend on the terms," said Mannertng. Then he drove his clenched flst Into that protruding stomach with a strength which made the wind go out of the man. and sent him staggering IX* Television— Tonite, Tomorrow WMCT, Memphis, Channel SATURDAY NIGHT, MAY 9 6;CO My Hero 6:30 Amateur Hour 7:00 Show of Shows 8:30 Lone Ranger 9:00 Juniper Junction 9:30 Abbott & Costello 10:00 News 10:10 Weather 10:15 Sightseeing With Swayiees 10:30 Wreetling 11:30 News 11:35 Balance Your Budget 12:05 News 12:10 Sign Off SUNDAY, MAY 10 9:45 Previews and News 10:00 World's Greatest Mother 10:30 Candy Carnival 11:00 Hippodrome 11:30 Frontiers of Faith 12:00 Quiz Kids 1230 Beulah 1:00 Burns and Allen 1:30 Future Unlimited 2:00 Roy Rogers 2:30 To Be Announcedn 3:00 Sunday Musicals 3:30 Ozzle & Harriet 4:00 Meet the Press 4:30 Slim Rhodes 4:55 News 5:00 Red Skelton 5:30 Mr. Peepers 6:00 Comedy Hour 7:00 TV Playhouse 8:00 Stu Erwin 8:30 Favorite Story 9:00 I Love Lucy 9:30 News 9:40 Weather 9:45 Toast of the Town 10:45 Private Secretary 11:15 News 11:20 Sign Off MONDAY, MAY 11 7:00 Today 7:25 Nett's 7:30 Today 7:55 News 8:00 Ding Dong School 8:30 Prologue to Future 8:00 TV Shopper 9:30 Strike It Rich 10:00 Beth Marsh 10:15 Love of Life 10:30 Search for Tomorrow 10:45 Godfrey 11:00 Storyland 11:15 Guiding Light 11:30 Garry Moore 12:00 Morning Meditation 12:10 News 12:20 Farm News 12:30 Homemakers Program 1:00 Bin Payoff 1:30 Welcome Travelers 2:00 Kate Smith 3:00 Hawkins Falls 3:15 Gabby Hayes 3:30 Howdy Doody 4:00 Berl Olswanger 4:30 Industry On Parade 4:45 Hartoons 5:00 Flicker Comics 5:15 News 5:25 Weather 5:30 Short Story 5:45 News Caravan 6:00 Paul Wlnchell 6:30 Howard Barlow 7:00 Cisco Kid 7:30 Robert Montgomery 8:30 Who Said That 9:00 This Is Your Life 9:30 Nett's Reporter 0:45 Tonight in Sports 9:55 Weather 10:00 Wrestling 10:45 News 11:00 Man Against Crime 11:30 Suspense 12:00 News 12:10 Sign Off WALPOLE ELECTRIC - US S, 2nd n.
