His companion " was a tall, young footman Soon they were joined by another, a man With curly black hair He Tied the s:iade; the groom had everything else that Mannertng had sent for. They lodged the power- ta) torch In the fork between a branch and - tree trunk, so that it shone on the pool and the pav- mark, and under Mannering's instructions, set to work. Abel had brought a bottle of water, for milting the plaster, and wielded the trowel expertly. The slimy whitish paste made a little castle in the seed box, and Mannering took a lump on the trowel and placed it gently Into the paw mark. He set the footman looking for othel marks, and the man found .three, T)Ut none was so clear as the flrst they'd found. Nevertheless, Mannering put the plaster into them, and by the time that was finished the plaster on the first was dry. It was past 11 o'clock. Mannering wn tired from the day'i > exciting events and now he be- ',gan to worry about Gloria. It seemed a Ions lime before he "istopped into the hall, with Abel "ai his side. *' Lorna came hurrying out of the drawing room. "What was the shooting, JohnT" "1 was nervous," said Manner- Ing "How's Gloria?" . She accep'ed the explanation without uiununt. »lUiou«h •!>• obviously had not believed the exr' al'^n. "Gloria's all right." No need to worry then. Now that he had his prize, Mannering was anxious to make sure that nothing damaged or destroyed it; the seed box was put on a high shelf in a,store room, and the door locked. Mannering pocketed the key, Abel went ofl to his quarters above the stables; Wirral made his nightly tour of the house to lock up; a footman brought in a salad and some sandwiches and coffee. Mannering went with Lorna to see Gloria, who was very pale, but sleeping joundly. Lady Bream looked up at him from the sloe of the bed, her eyes heavy with sleep and with anxiety. The older woman got up from her chair. She pressed her hand against her gray hair, then drew it wearily across her forehead. "Why did she do it? Why did she try to kill herself?" Better, perhaps, to let her believe that. Mannering rested his hand on her shoulder, pressed gently and said: "You know how worked-up she gets, Maggie Don't worry too much, we can look after her now. And don't tell her what she tried to do. She might not remember., and It'll be much better U she doesn't." The old lady nodded, and Lorna took her to her room. • • • 'THEY had finished breakfast. •*• and a clock was itrikinj half past nine, when Wirral came in with the morning paperi. Out of the front pace,, the face of Derek Peacock looked M him, young, eager, imilinl. Above Derek was a pbotofraph of his mother, and below, one of Mannering. Chlttering had extolled himself; and undoubtedly the Peacocks would treasure that newspaper for the rc«t of their lives, There was no nlnl that the artiilr In B*yiw«l*r wu eeoixctto with a mystery at Lithom Hall. The story that Mannering had been kidnaped in order to make him sell stolen jewels, seemed to be lully accepted. "I'll go and see Abel. Is Gloria getting up, do you know?" "I advised her to stay in bed until the doctor comes." He walked around the house, past the shrubbery which grew close to the windows on the east He came to the stables. Abel and two boys were grooming the horses, and Mannering went up to Lithom's gray and caressed its head, talking to it in solt undertones, watched approvingly by Abel. The groom approached after a while, and said: "That horse knows her ladyship hates him." 'Think he does?" Tip sure, sir. And a better horse—" the groom broke ofl. and cleared his throat "Could you spare me a few minutes right now, sir?" "Of course." "I've something to show you," said Abel importantly. • • • T_TE led the way Into a small, -*" 1 brick hut, a cross between a sto'rage shed and a potting shed. There were piles of seedling boxes, (lower pots, tools, sacks of potatoes, rope and twine and along the wall, a wooden • bench which looked as if it had been there as long as the brick hut itself. On the bench, spread out, were tutu of grass, their roots still embedded in the rich, dark soil of the parkland. Manering's eyes brightened as he saw the dark, brownish stains on the grass and guessed what they were, but he did nothing to spoil Abel's triumph. "Them's bloodstain si" announced Abel. V "Bloodstains?" "Aye—sure as I'm here," said Abel. "You hit that creature last night, sir First thing this morn- Ing, 1 went down to the thicket and saw the blood on the grau. I've seen dried blood often enough to know what that's like, sir, any man who doei a little shooting knows how it stains grass. And I thought you'd like It if I preserved it" <T« B* CnUnued) Television— Tonite, Tomorrow WMCT, Memphis, Channel 5 SATURDAY NIGHT, MAY'16 6:00 My Hero 6:30 Amateur Hour 7:00 Show of Shows 8:30 Lone Ranger 9:00 Juniper Junction 9:30 Abbot & Costello 10:00 News 10:10 Weather 10:15 Sightseeing With Swayzees 10:30 Wrestling 11:30 News 11:35 Dunninger Show 12:05 News 12:10 Sign Off SUNDAY, MAY 17 10:15 Previews and News 10:30 Candy Carnival 11:00 Hippodrome ' 11:30 Frontiers of Faith 12:00 Zoo Parade -12:30 Beulah 1:00 Burns and Allen 1:30 Future Unlimited 2:00 Roy Rogers 2:30 Ethel & Albert 3:00 Sunday Musicale 3:3f Ozzie & Harriet 4:00 Meet the Press 4:30 Slim Rhodes 4:55 News 5:00 Bed 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 Big Picture 11:50 Sign Off MONDAY, MAY 18 7:00 Today 7:25 News 7:30 Today 7:55 News 8:00 Ding Dong School 8:30 Arthur Godfrey 9:00 TV Shopper 9:30 Strike It Rich 10:00 Beth Marsh 10:15 Love of Life 10:30 Search for Tomorrow 10 45 Arthur Godfrey 11:00 Storyland 11:15 Guiding Light 11:30 Garry Moore 12:00 Meditation 12:10 News 12:20 Farm News 12:30 Homemakers Program 1:00 Big Payoff 1:30 Welcome Travelers 2:00 Kate Smith 3:00 Hawkins Falls 3:15 Gabby Hayes 3:30 Howdy Doody 4:00 Beri 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 News Reporter 9:45 Tonight in Sporti 8:55 Weather 10:00 Wrestling 10:45 News 11:00 Man Against Crime 11:30 Suspense 12:00 News 12:10 Sign Off WIRING •i!
