XXI TT was as It a cloak had been thrown over Mannering and had been snatched away—leaving a different man in his place, not Mannering; much more like the Baron of old. He had brought a bo* of greasepaints and theatrical make-up with him, accessories on which Bristow always frowned; and while Lorna had been getting ready for bed, he worked on his face, slipping thin rubber mock teeth over his own, and disfiguring his mouth because the rubber looked yellow and dirty. He put rubber cheek pads in his mouth, held by suction against the inside of the checks and making his face look plumper. With them in, his voice sounded different—he had to speak slowly, as if he had a plum in his mouth. When the Baron had been born, Mannering had undergone an Intensive course of elocution, so that he could change not only the sound, but the timber of his voice. He was out of practice; but no one would have recognized,him as Mannering when he was speaking Grease-paint, deftly applied, darkened his skin and made him 'look older. He dyed his hair and 'his eyebrows and eyelashes with a dye which would wash out easily. Mannering had both an automatic and spare ammunition; and much more. A remarkable knife, the blades of which were more like a set of tools, and with which he could break open almost any door or window. A pair of dark, cotton gloves; some cord; t blue scarf, "with holes cut In it for the i mouth and nose, and which could be tied round his face so that he wouldn't be seen even with his disguise—which would serve only if he were forced to take of! the scarf. He h«d « small jimmy, too _—a cold chisel, bent at one end— and a large pad of cotton-wool, pinned inside his coat. He was dressed in jodhpurs and a tweed jacket. The jodhpurs had always been roomy round the waisL He folded a sheet and tied it round his waist, giving him at least another two Inches in girth. He walked to the stables, and heard one of the horses moving about in his box, as if he was anxious for company. It was Lithom's gray. Mannering put on the bridle and saddle and crept out, leading the horse. Mannerln? tightened the girths, then mounted and rode off. was much smaller than .tithom Hall. U stood on the top of • gentle rise, surrounded by sweeping parkland, but the park was smaller; the drive, a dim ribbon 200 yards from the belt of trees where Mannering sat on the horse, was much shorter The house was Georgian; square, simple, stately. Tall trees, elms he fancied, grew near the house, but the thing which made his eyes glisten was an oak tree which spread its branches almost to the upstairs windows. There should be some of Gadden's men nearby, but he had seen and heard nothing of them. He wailed for a while to let any watcher reveal himself; none did. "We'll get a bit nearer," he said to the gray, and pressed his knees gently into its sides. They brushed small bushes and . twigs aside, making a rustling sound as they approached the house, which was in darkness. Two oak trees, not far from the one near the window had hidden > garage and some outbuildings, which gradually loomed up against the sky. One of the oaks was only i dozen yards from the garage. "The'y'l! nering. whispered Man. He dipped (rom tn * 'addle, Knotted up the reinSj tied the rop« from the halter—which he nad left on under the bridle—to a con- •enient branch. Then he hung the haversacks on a branch, and approached the side of the house near the garage. The windows were shuttered. He tried the shutters. They were of heavy wood, fastened on the inside, and secured to the wall so as to defy any burglar unless b« had strong tools. He stood beneath the oak tree, studying its long branches One almost brushed the side .of the house, the end a yard or more from the window. He put on the cotton gloves and the scarf-mask. • • * TJE swung himself on to a lower •*"*• branch, hoisted himself Into the tree, then sWod in the fork, acutely aware of the noise of the rustling leaves. Old, nostalgic sensations came back. A nervous excitement which made his forehead and the back of his neck cold; the palms of his hands were clammy. That phase would soon pass. But the excitement would remain, with a tension which he knew so well. It was as if some power, always in him, took possession of his mind and body, giving him a sixth sense and a supreme confidence. He stitched up to the branch above him; it gnve more freely than the first, groaning and creaking when all his weight was on it. But it held. Soon h« was standing on a level with the window. Holding on to a branch higher still, he edged farther along. The branch swayed gently up and down, making foothold precarious. He broke off small twigs which clutched at his tace, then stood, will) the foliage parted, staring at the window. A fitting, where .there had once been shutters.
