Gray, unshaven, wearing a patched Norfolk jacket, corduroy breeches and a pair of igailered boots, he looked as dry as a piece of sun-cured leather. There iwere crinkly lines at his mouth jand eyes, and those eyes were blue •and keen. "Morning," he greeted. "Good morning," said Longley. "Could we have a cup of coffee?" "Aye, gladly," said the old man "And biscuits?" Longley looked at Mary. "I am rather hungry," said Mary. They had nearly finished, and he was looking at his wristwatch ostentatiously, when they heard a dog growling. The note was so fierce that it startled them, and they looked around. Longley had a nervousness of dogs which always annoyed him but which he couldn't overcome. This one seemed to be on the far side of the fence. Then they heard a fresh sound; a cat, scolding and spitting. There was a sudden flurry, and they saw in slecK, black torn streak across the garden. The dog rushed after it, Mary clutched Longley's arm. It was a great, shaggy beast, a grayish or dirty white; long logs cleared the hedge in a bound and ,11 racoo after the'cat, which sprang up one of the apple trees. As the dog stood barking furiously and prancing around the trunk of the tree, the old man came hurrying Anthony Morton ttSHT Itil tf IQHH CltlSlY ' DISTtllUTtO IT HIA J/IYyCf. WC. at a shuffling run. "Leo—Leo! Come here."" He drew level with Mary and Longley, and said in an aside: "Leo hates cats, but you needn't fear him. Leo." The dog still pranced. He had a thick leather collar, which the old man grabbed. The dog howled as he was dragged away. He was taken into the house, and the back door closed on him. *> Longley said: "What a brute!" "The ugliest dog I've seen tor a long time," said Mary. 'Something not so good about that one," said Longley. "1 say, we ought to be moving! We've lingered rather too long." Mary jumped up. "1 oughtn't to have made you stay." The old man had obviously been Watching from the cottage, and came out. He showed a disposition to talk, and asked them where they were heading. Longley saw no reason why he shouldn't tell him, and said that they were going to Lithom Hall, to work in the library. The old man's eyes lighted up. "Are you, then. Come you'll see my boy." "Your boy?" Longley looked puzzled. "Aye, my son Abel," said the old man, "He's a groom at Lithom Hall. That is, he looks after the horses," he added, as If they might not be familiar with the word groom. "Been there since he was a boy, rising 13." Longley said: "I .suppose so. We must be on our way; how much do I owe you?" He paid the bill, and the old man came and waved as they went off—and they saw the shaggy dog in the window of the front room at the cottage, looking at them with its nose pressed close to the glass. * • • • • M ANNERING sat down In «n easy chair, leaned back, and studied the intricate plaster-work of the ceiling. There was rrystory about the Earl of Lithom. Why had he turned his back on his career and retired into obscurity shortly before his death? Then the door opened, and Wir- ral announced Inspector Gadden of the St. Maiden police. Mannering liked the local detective's calm, brown face; his shrewd and friendly gray eyes; his rather ponderous manner and deep voice, and the fact that he didn't complain, even dryly, of being left out in the cold. "Now do you really think what happened to you is connected with the trouble here?" asked Gadden. "Yes." "Then it's a great pity," said Gadden. "Of course, I knew that Lady Gloria had ideas about what had happened to her father. Mr. Mannering. This seems to suggest that she wasn't so wrong as we thought" Mannering nodded. "And I can't say that I'm sorry," said Gadden. "I never could catch on to Lord Lilhom falling oft his horse and breaking -,his neck— wonderful horseman, his loroship. Can you tell me anything else?" "A little," said Mannering. • * • rprTE telling took more than halt an hour, and when Mannering had finished, Gadden asked: Did Mannering think that this new doctor wanted to kidnap Lady Gloria? Mannering said: "Yes." "And how are you going to handle this Dr, Halsted?" asked Gadden. "The question should be, how v are you going to handle him?" said Mannering mildly. Gadden smiled; he had big; white teeth and a strong, square }aw, and when he smiled he looked as yourig aj the 30-year-old Wilkinson. "Well, Mr. Mannering," he said. "I saw the Chief Constable this morning, and he agrees that we should ask Scotland Yard to handle this business for us, it they will. And Superintendent Bristow has a lot of confidence In you, 1 will say that."
