H< bumped igalnst the wall and hi right hand slipped, but he helc fast with his .left. Graduallr he found a grip with his other hand first on the fitting, then on the ledge. He hung down, his fee touching the shutter of. the window immediately below—it gave him » little support. He hauled himself up. He opened a thin knife-blade. The catch was old fashioned, but inot of the screw type; he woulc ibe able to force it back withou I much trouble. He worked at It igently. It had been oiled recently. ,and moved without much trouble! IHe pushed It farther and farther back, pressing close against the window at the time. The stone ledge hurt his knees; he kept eas- •ing them. When he judged that the catch was about to spring open, he . .pressed his left hand against the . glass, then exerted a little extra pressure with the knife. The catch sprang back, but because he was pressing the glass, the noise was slight He took out the jimmy, forced the chisel edge between the window and the frame, and levered I ' at it gently. The chisel made a !>«dqnt in the wood at first, but did I'if not move the window. When he tried again the window opened a , quarter of an inch. Soon it wss wide enough for him to get his fingers beneath it. The window opened without much noise. He stood by the window, still staring at the bed. Then he stepped forward, and peered closer; yes, It was emply. He turned and looked into the grounds. Waiting and watching irked him, but he had to bear them. If Gncltlcn's men had seen him, tliey would show themselves, He tried two; they were locked, but they could do little more than report to Gadden—they could hardly warn the man they were secretly watching. He went to the door. Th« room opened on to i wide passage, off which led several other rooms. If the doors were locked, forcing them would take precious time. He opened the nearest door without trouble, and peered in. There were twin beds, and a young couple occupied them, both facing the window; their face's were light. lit up by the moon- Then he tried the next, which was also unlocked. He stepped inside, glad of the carpet; there had been carpets in all the rooms and in the passage, helping him to teep quiet. In the double bed here, lay one man. Mannering went forward, treading lightly. The man's face was ,urned away from the window. He .reached the bed, and bent over the sleeping man—a iat man. It was Wilfrid Fenner. • • * PENNER slept peacefully, his - 1 breathing soft and even. The >edclothes were pulled up round iis neck, so that only his face and lead showed. Mannering turned away from he bed and went to the dressing able. Now the light was good ^nough for him to see everything he needed to, without switching n his torch. He made no sound. There were all the usual oddments :S well as a neat pile of copper nd silver, a small bunch of keys ,nd a pen-knife. He took the keys nd slipped them into his-pocket. He walked quiedy down the arpetcd stairs, past pictures—all andscapes; no ancestral portraits. a at Lithom Hall. This hall was quare, and from it led a wide assuge, which ran alongside the Win. There were five tall, dark oors. and one would lead to the omostic quarters. and It wasn't likely that Fenner would trouble to lock the door leading to the kitchen. The third door, a few feet away from the foot of the stairs, on his left, was unlocked. He saw a crack of light. Mannering pushed the door gently. If it squeaked, he would have to move fast. It didn't squeak; soon he was able to see the back of a man sitting at the table, and a corner of a newspaper. He stepped inside. There was liair carpet on this floor too; no risk of his shoes squeaking 00. polished linoleum. The man read on. Mannermg crept forward. " Only a yard separated him from :he night watchman. Mannering positioned himself carefully and gripped the man around the neck. ''THE man fought desperately and swung his arm around, hoping to land a back-hander. He missed, then grabbed at a heavy cup, failed to get a hold on it but swept it from the table. The noise was like a thunderclap. Mannering pressed more tightly. His victim couldn't get up, his struggles gradually grew weaker. At last he slumped back in his chair, eyes half-open and glazed. Mannering took his hands away, and let the fellow fall forward against the table. Mannering took a handkerchief from the man's pocket and tied it around his mouth to gag him; then took some cord and tied him to Ihe chair, arms behind it, legs to the chair legs. His victim's eyelids were flickering. Mannering ran through his pockets, found a bunch of keys and put them with the one which ic had token from Fenner's dress- ng table. Then he turned towards the door. He opened it wider, and stood listening. There was a loud icking — the sound of a grandfather clock. He stepped Into the passage, .urnlng left. Something jabbed Into his back, and a man said: "Don't move." (T« Be Continued) In Mexico, 18-year-old persons can vote if they are married. Television— .
