Upon In- by dog:, A/TANTftRING took a pencil torch ^ from his pocket. The groom took courage, and they walked side by side, retracing Gloria's steps. Not far ahead was a tiny pool, half-way across the path, and the earth about it was soft and damp. There was the imprint of the side of a heel, and Mannering knew that the girl had only just missed treading in the pool. He stopped here, and cast the li^ht downwards —and the groom suddenly drew a fsing breath. "See there, sir!" • The light steadied, and shone clearly on a paw mark, dark and deep, close to the unruffled pool of water. The groom bent down and peered at it. "We ought to take a cast, we might find it useful. Can you tell me what kind of dog it was?" "Could be any big breed. I know little about, their paw marks, horses is my -line." He drew in another hissing breath. "Bui it was a monster, sir!" / Mannering pursed his lips and whistled softly: low though the sound was, it made the groom jump. They looked at each other, just seeing the paleness of their faces and their shadowy outlines, and the groom said eagerly: "A whistle! Aye! 1 heard one, like a squeak it was. I would have thought it was a bough creaking, they make funny noises at night, you can Imagine almost anything. But t heard a whistle—was some feller calling ofl the dog, do you thinkt" "It could have been that," said Bannering. Mannering spoke quietly: "Can you find some plaster of Paris at the house?" "Oh yes, sir, we use it often." "Get some, will you," said Mannering. "Bring a spade and a small trowel and a box, a seedling box will do. Be as quick as you can." CEVEN or eight minutes passed, although it seemed longer. It would take 20 minutes for Abel, the groom, to get the supplies. Then Mannering heard a rustling in the brush. He slipped his right hand into his pocket and felt the cold steel of an automatic. He gripped it lightly and listened, wary, poised, trying to make sure from which direction the sound came, it might be a fox, even a badger; any one of the animals which prowl by night Or it might be a man. It was drawing nearer, and came from the direction o£ the North Lodge. Nearer—nearer still. Was it man or beast? He drew out the gun and held it close to his waist, pointing towards the sound. He felt a chill, a crawly feeling at the back of lis neck, and his stomach muscles were taut. He thought of Gloria, giving way to panic, perhaps launted by such sounds as this tearing at her frayed nerves. He peered towards the denseness of the thicket, seeing only Ihe stars and the dark sky when he glanced upwards; he could not see anything above the skyline, because of the trees and scrub. Yet it was drawing closer, and the sound was steady and regular now. Was it imagination, or could he see • snap*, about wiist-hlgh? Lighter than the darknssi. like i gray werewolf slinking towards h I m He' looked away deliberately, ind then back. Now he could M« tht thing—and knew that it was a dog. It was almost clear of the long grass, not 20 yards away from him; perhaps not 10. He heard a new sound, a soft whistle that might well have been the creaking of a loose branch, but he knew that it was not. .He raised the gun, leveling it towards the shape which moved more swiftly. He heard another fresh sound, like trie intake of breath. He fired. The Hash of the shot lit up the low branches of the trees and the nearby undergrowth, but blinded him to everything else. He didn't see the dog or the man who had whistled, He heard a yelp, high- pitched and shrill, and knew that lie had hurt the brute. He heard it fall heavily; a moment later another whistle hissed through the night, louder than the first, urgent, summoning. More rustling: he thought he could see the shape of the dog rising from the ground, tie fired again—but there was no rewarding yelp. Someone afar off shouted. The groom was approaching, and had heard the shots. ly/TANNERING did not go In pur- 1 suit, but waited until Abel shouted again, then answered: "All safe!" But was he safe? There was more rustling, and he .hought it was caused by a gust of wind, but couldn't be sure; he strained his ears and. kept his gun cocked. His assailant might try igain, from a different angle. He had no idea how badly he had. wounded the dog; or even whether -here was only one. A whispering sound was close to his ears, and knew that was caused by the wind. Then the groom shouted again, and, after he had called lack, he heard a second voice: so the groom hadn't come here alone. The men were little more than 100 yards away and he could see a powerful torch Bashing He kept still—until suddenly the torch shone on him. lighting up his legs ind feet. He realized that he made a silhouette against it. and lould be clearly seen by anyone behind him. (To Be Continued) Television— Tonite, Tomorrow WMCT, Memphis.
