Mr. Mannering. This body In the library, now—was there pne?" "Bristow tells me I found a spot of blood. I know that doesn't prove that someone had his thrnat cut, but—" "That's the difference between en amateur like you and we professionals, Mr. Mannering," Gadden .observed. "The first thing I ihould want to know is whether anyone is missing, and whose body It might have been. Did you know 'that the librarian who left here just before Lord Lithom died, Is missing from his home?" "No." "Well, he Is," said Gadden "The iinorrient 1 heard about this «orpse i—even before Bristow telephoned I—that Lady Gloria had seen, I imade inquiries.

Bit of a misanthrope. What kind of man was this fellow her ladyship saw dead?" "Gray-haired." said Manner^ng. "She didn't say that' she recog- ,nized him?" "No." "That's a pity, she'd have known Wilberforce." said Gadden "1— but were you going to say something, Mr. Mannering?" Mannering laughed. "Yes—ruefully! How did you know that Lady Gloria thought she saw a man with his throat cut?" "Well, now, these things get around," said the local detective comfortably. "There are a dozen servants here, you know—as well as several gardeners and the grooms. We had a call about it yesterday morning: I thought perhaps you were keeping Scotland Yard informed, so I did nothing about it — except put a man to watch the Hall, but one man can't watch a house of this size properly, can he?" Mannering rubbed his chin. "Gadden, I'm humbled." 'My dear sir, no need for that," protested Gadden energetically. "A fine kind ol policeman I'd be if 1 didn't know what was happening in my own territory. But there is one thing you might like to know." • • • TTE paused, giving his slow, amused smile. "Yes," said Mannering. "There's a footman here, by the name of Higby," murmured Gadden. "Tall, young fellow, with curly black hair, quite the young gentleman. He came not long before his lordship's death. I'm told. And when thnre was talk of a man with his throat cut, 1 was very interested In the new servants, so I checked on all of them. There are three others — three maids, all reliable local people— as well as Hlgby Higby answered an advertisement, and he came from London. Fine references. h« had—but they were forged. Mr. Mannering. I've checked that. I could have taken action against him. out 1 thought It better to bide my time. You'll find the man worth watching." Mannering went across the room. "I ougnt to go home." he said 'You should stay here." Manncrinjt watched the local detective and the sergeant drive away from the house. The arrival of Dr. Halsted, the new tn- terert in Gloria Lithom, the possibility that some harm had befallen Chatterton all increased the sense of danger. Longley, looking more than ever like a young Greek god, and Mary Scott arrived just after the St. Maiden detectives left Longley was a little sheepish for a reason that Mannering didn't guesi unwi Longley said that they'd had a snack on the way, and wouldn't want any lunch. Mannering and Lady Bream took them into the study where they were to start work, and left them to it /^LORIA was sitting in front of the open window, wearing her dressing gown, looking wan. It flashed into Mannering's mind that if her hair were cut short, it would be remarkably like Higby's. The texture was similar, and both curled naturally. 'I've some news for you," said Mannering. "You mean, I'm to go away," said Gloria, •'Yes." A spark of feeling crept into her voice. "You think I see things which don't exist, and now you're sending me away—if I were poor, it would be to any asylum. I'm wealthy, so it's to a nursing home." '1 don't think you've quite got it right," murmured Mannering. "1 don't intend to let anyone take you to a nursing home." She looked puzzled. "Aunt Maggie says—" "1 haven't consulted Aunt Maegle about this yet. It's up to you to help us to find out the truth," said Manncrlng quietly. The brightness In her eyes was blinding now; hope, reborn. 1 think you saw a dead man in the library." Mannering said carefully. "1 found traces of blood on the carpet—it's been tested and is human blood. 1 didn't want to tell you until I was sure of it."
