He couldn't „ |see him 'clearly, because the light !j (wasn't good, there, but a shaft of (reflected sunlight'caught his head land shoulders. The man was dressed in black, and had a fine head of dark hair—almost black. A door closed softly. The second footman who had come out with Abel the previous night was curly-haired; /Mannering remembered noting it absently. Dark, glossy, curly hair, more suitable for a Woman than for a man. It would be easy to check whether any of the other servants had glossy, black, curly hair; but it i wasn't likely that there were | two heads like that in the. same j household. The front door was open and Dr. Halsted's car stood glistening. Mannering' went out on to the terrace and down the steps. He was about to open the car door, when he heard hurried footsteps in the house. He turned, and saw Wlrral near the door, looking harassed. Behind him was Abel; and the groom seldom entered the front of the house. "Mr. Manncring—" Wirral said, and then stopped for breath. Abel, coming forward sturdily, carried on for him. "Cnn you come with m« a minute. sir 11 " „."What's the trouble?" "I—rd rather show you, sir,** said Abel. Abel led the way through a maze of passages until they reached the store room—and the door of the room where the plaster cast had closed. been put away was Abel turned the key in the lock, and pushed the door open. Mannering needed only a single glance to see what had happened. The plaster cast was smashed. • • • TT lay In hundreds of tiny pieces, •^ on the shelf, in the seed box and on the floor. Someone had broken In, picked up the seed box and hurled it against the wall, smashing the cast and afterwards breaking the pieces into tiny fragments. Here and there, pieces of the white plaster had been trod- jjen into powder. The bloodstained grass was on shelf behind the door. "I can't imagine how anyone got in," said Wirral in an unsteady voice. "There are only two keys, 1 have one and you had the other—the one that Abel's got now. And I swear mine hasn't been taken during the night, I'm quite sure, sir. I keep a duplicate key of every door in my room, and the box wasn't touched during the night" "1 don't think they used a key," said Mannering. He was looking at the'lock of the door, and bent down to examine it more closely. There were scratches, mode by a sharp Instrument— not an ordinary skeleton key, more lik_ely a knife or a piece of, stout wire" with a rough edge. The lock was a simple one. "But who—" began Wirral. Manncring spoke impatiently. "We wert watched last night, and afterwards we had burglars. Have you noticed anything else this morning?" The old butler swallowed a lump in his throat «\Vcll — well. sir. there was something unusual. Just aloof j here, sir. This—this window." He pointed "1 locked it myself last night, but it was unlatched this morning. 1 thought — 1 thought one of the staff had stayed out late, and been locked out. 1 meant to make inquiries during the day, sir. 1 didn't dream of this." "Nor did anyone else," said Mannering dryly. "Don't talk about this too much, either of you." Abel said quietly: "We won't talk, sir, but maybe others will. And, excuse me, but hove you sent for the police yet?" "The police know there's trouble," said Mannering. Abel searched for 15, but was unable to find a paw- mark from which to make another casL TTE went back to the hall, mus- •'"'• ing. Dr. Halsted struck one false note, this latest incident, another. The pressure was being increased, but he could not make up his mind whether Gloria was in imminent danger or whether there had been just another attempt to frighten her and so worsen her condition.' Voices on the landing broke into his thoughts...He slipped into the drawing room, and left the door ajar. Lady Bream was talking, but he could not at.first distinguish the words. Then the new doctor spoke, in his syrupy voice. The tone of extra refinement was reminiscent of a ham actor ruining Shakespeare. '' , "Yes, Lady Bream, I am quite sure—in fact Dr. Chatterton informed nie, when I saw him yesterday afternoon, that he was coming to the same- conclusion. The environment is not suitable. Ah, what a terrible thing is memory of evil happenings. It Is almost malign—It affect* the nerves as a malignant growth may aflect the brain. It warps both judgment and reason.
