XIV T\ :ING left Abel putting •"-* MO olood-stained grass into iced boxes. Then he saw a car turn into the drive from the North Lodge, and recognized its clean, aristocratic lines, immediately he remembered the car which he had passed the previous night. He saw the man at the wheel without recognizing him. He heard Wirral greet him. and the words: "Dr. Halsted." His frown deepened, but by the time he reached the hall. Halsted was half way up the stairs, escorted by.the butler. Mannering had not heard of Dr. Halsted: or of any other doctor In attendance on Gloria. It might be the local G. P., but country doctors did not travel around in such elegance. He heard footsteps up above, expected to see Wirral. but instead he saw Lorna coming down the stairs. t. "Who was that?" asked Mannering. "A doctor named Halsted," said Lorna. "Maggie's lust told me that Chatterton can't get here today— he'll be awa'y for a lew days." "Did you have a word with him?" "Well—just." "What's he like?" "A supercilious know-all," said Lorna. "The worst possible Harley Street type, fiut that doesn't mean that he isn't good." "Go back again, and sec what he does," urged. Mannering. "Much better to hear first-hand than to rely on what Maggie says." His manner gave no inkling of the thoughts racing through his mind. Lorna wept upstairs. • • • TViTANNERING turned into the drawing room. The sun was already striking in at the southeast windows, and picking out the deep colors, but Mannering had no eye for color just then. He went to the telephone and sank down in an easy chair, lifting the receiver. A girl with a rich, country voice answered him. and he gave a Mayfair number—the number of Dr. Maurice Chatterton. Finally another girl answered with haughty refinement 'Is Dr. Chntterton there please?" asked Mannering. "Dr. Chatterton has been called away, and cannot say when he will return." * "This is a personal call," said Mannering. "John Mannering Is speaking." That made little impression on the haughty voice. , 'I'm sorry, 'sir, but Dr. Chatterton left strict instructions that he wasn't to ber-er—worried, sir. In fact he didn't leave his address or telephone number. I understand that a relative has been taken seriously ill." Mannering said slowly. "When did he leave?" "Last evening, sir.* "Did he tell you when he might be back?" '1 didn't actually sec him, sir, he fcad been out," said the girL "I understand from his Valet that he iclt unexpectedly. Shall 1 take a message?" "No, thanks." He rang of!, sat up, and looked bleakly over the lawns. He lifted the receiver agdln, and this time he called Whitehall 1212. The call came through more quickly. "Superintendent Bristow please," Mid Mannering, and UM Yard operator asked him to hold on. While he was doing so, he heard a movement in the hall—a soft, gentle movement, not that of Wir- ral or a servant, on his ordinary business, but like someone on tiptoe. He glanced around. The door was opening. WHOEVER stood outside could not see Mannering, but would be able to hear anything he said in a normal voice. Mannering stood up cautiously, and stepped around the chair, ready to move fast. Then Bristow came on the line—a friendly Bristow. "Well, John, what's up now?" Mannering whispered into the mouthpiece: "Can you hear me?" A pause, and then: "Yes, just about. What's up? Someone listening?" 'Yes," said Mannering. "No trouble, it's all right. Listen carefully, Bill. You know that Dr. Maurice Chatterton—" Bristow said: "Oh, yes, attending Lady Gloria. What about him?" "He's been called away unexpectedly—can you hear?" "Yes." Bristow spoke sharply. "See what you can find out about his going, without making a fuss." "Let me get this straight," said Bristow. "Chatterton's been called away, you think there might be some funny business, and want us to trace him without letting anyone know that we suspect that he's missing. Right?" "Perfect, Bill. Thanks." "Anything else?" "Find out if anything is known about a Dr. Halsted, supposed to be a colleague of Chatterton's." "Right" He rang off, raised his voice a little and said: "Oh. hold on > moment" Brislow couldn't hear that, but the man at the door could. Mannerjng stretched out his hand, touched the handle—and pulled sharply. No one was there.
