Mannering promised that the sargeant would call for hci at about half-past nine. Mary went to the front door with Mannering. quiet and thoughtful, but she said nothing else. Mannering shook hands; and felt a spasm of uneasiness, almost of. guilt. "I'U be all right," said Mary. Mannering laughed; but still felt uneasy. \Vhen she had gone and the door was closed, Mannering stood by the door, looking each way, wary now. No one was in sight but after a few moments he saw a man's hat poking from a doorway .farther along the street. It was brown felt, and belonged to a plain-clothes officer whom Bristow • had detailed to fellow him. He took a ttxi to Chelsea. As he walked upstairs to his flat he felt his heart beating last with the «>\ exhilarating cxcitemcn, that always came when, after an ordeal, he met Lorna. The door opened before he reached the landing. Tumult reigned. At last Mannering told Lorna his story and his plans. She said: "I've packed for » week at Lithom Hall. Will that be enough?" "We'll come back and replenish, if it isn't," said Mannering. "What about the shop?" "Bristow is going to keep an eye I on it, and I'll warn Morns to be ..on the aJcrt in case Uicj try re- prisals. But I don't think they will." The telephone rang. Lorna answered. "Hello," said Lorna. "Oh, yes, Bill." Bristow! Mannering jumped up. "Wonderful!" cried Lorna. and her eyes danced. "Yes, I'll tell him." "Oi!" cried Mannering, "I want to speak lo—" But the receiver was down. "Let me have some fun," pleaded Lorna. "Wonderful news, darling." "Have they caught Fenner?" "Oh, no. The car's been found!" * * * T ADY BREAM'S greatest anxiety was that Gloria might try to kill herself. She hadn't tried, yet, but the old lady had seen an expression in the girl's eyes during the day, which worried her deeply. She thought of Mannering, who had telephoned that he and Lorna hoped to arrive before half-past 10. It was not yet 10 o'clock. She heard a movement behind her. She turned. . "There is a Dr. Halsled to sec you, my lady," said Wirral, in his tired, placid way. "Doctor," echoed lady Bream, who always repe ited something that had been, said when she was trying to think. "He says, my lady, that he is a colleague of Dr. Chatterton." Dr. Halstcd was dressed in light gray with a well-fitting morning coat, narrow trousers and a black bow tie. His hair. was dark but streaked with gray, long at the back and sides and sweeping back from his forehead. More actor than dottor U> look »t, but certainly distinguished. "How good of you to see me, Lady Bream." "Colleague of Dr. Chatterton'o," she said, almost accusingly. "Is he ill? Can't he come tomorrow?", "Most unfortunately, no," said Dr Halstcd. smiling gravely "He wu greatly upset that the sudden illness of a close relative called him away." Lady Bream lowered herself into the rocking chair. Dr. Halsted sat opposite her. "I thought it wise to advise you that I should be coming tomorrow, instead of Dr. Chatterlon," said Halsted. "1 am staying with friends close by, it was no trouble to drive over, and so much better than telephoning. Dr. Chatterton has so impressed me with the importance of this case, we both agreed that it might be wiser if Lady Gloria were prepared, beforehand." "I'm glad you realiz* that," said Lady Bream. "1 do indeed," said Halsted. How has your niece been during the past few days?" "She hasn't been at all good," said Lady Bream. "She dreams, has nightmares' Last night she thought that she saw a man lying in the study with his throat cut! This sleepwalking, if we could only cure her of that—•" 'I think 1 may say that Dr. Chatterton was hopefu! of doing that," said Halsted "He has told me everything. We have discussed every feature of the case, the advisability of trying new method! —science is continually advancing." r\R. HALSTED discussed Glorii •^ for a few minutes with Lady Bream, then rose, bowed and wished her good night. Lady Bream watched him leave the terrace and get Into his car. The car moved ofl, towards the North drive. At the same lime, headlights sprang out of the gloom and cast a brilliant light over the trees, lighting up the drive and the grass and shrubs on either side. The cars passed. The approaching car appeared to be traveling fast, but Lady Bream was smiling. Because she was sure that this was Mannering. She ran her fingers over the smooth steel of the crochet needle —then suddenly -toppod and stiffened: for a flush of light green 'appeared. It was Gloria, Gloria throwing herself m Iron) ofithe carl (To Be tcntinued) - THESE WINDOW SCREENS ARE MM)E TO UST LIFETIME/ • Mad* from Aluminum . BO^ UghUr In W.I 9 ht • Riot-Proof . . .
