For Service Dial 3816 BOOKS FOR THE by Anthony Morton BARON eorrtfwr Mt n mm cnair • fOmiotm n Kit IIMKI. nrc. r xxrv TTE turned to th« last of the •*"'- downstairs roomi and again found one of Fanner's keys what he wanted. He stepped Into a j study rather smaller than the (ground floor study at Lithom Hall, but much like it—the walls were book-lined from floor to ceiling. The chief difference was that these shelves weren't glazed. Two had cupboards beneath them. These were locked; again Fenner's keys came out. One cupboard was filled with books—several large ones. He (glanced at one, seeing woodcuts of great beauty on the seared pages. There were many much smaller, and about half were really old. I He didn't trouble to look at the ! titles or inspect the binding close- jly, but put them on.a small pedes- >tal desk—on which stood a telephone, a silver inkstand and a blotting pad. , He went to the second cupboard —and found the black door and brass handle of an old-fashioned safe inside. He had no keys for this. The safe was built into the wall; It wouldn't be possible to take it out and wrench the back of it off—the simplest and most effective way of dealing with old- fashioned safes. There was only lone keyhole, and young Kenley's < words came to his mind—he'd told I the "Old Man" that he ought to | get a new one. Mannering took a reel of twine from his pocket, crouched down, and began to unwind and push it into the keyhole, ana ramming It tightly. It took a long time. Soon most of the twine was inside the keyhole. He rammed it In more tightly, then took a nafrow steel tool, and pushed that in. The tool was like a sardine key, with serrated edges, and the edges would catch in the cotton. The cotton would be pressed into the tumblers of the lock, and so, when turned, ;the tool should act ns a key. The method had on« weakness; it took time, and he had already been inside Marchant for an hour. He felt the pressure, as if the "key" had caught in the tumblers, and turned even more gently. If it slipped, he would have to start all over again. Slowly — slowly. He hardly breathed. He heard no click, and expected none; but he knew that the lock was back. He drew the "key" out, breaking the threads which were attached to it, and then stood up, rubbing his strained legs. He crossed to the door, glad to move his muscles; still welcome silence greeted him. But he was uneasr. • * • TJE stood deliberately to one side, - 1 - 1 leant forward, gripped the handle and-pulled. He was cautious because he knew Fenner would never trust his valuables to such an old-fashioned safe. Was there another strong-box, which he hadn't found? Or was there a trick to this? Mannering had known safes with "safqty" devices which could kill. The safe door was heavy, but finally it swung open. Next moment he heard a little sneezing sound, and a cloud of white vapor spewed about him. Tear-gas burned his eyes as he darted back. He wanted to cough. He stifled it as he went to the door, to gulp in clean, fresh air. The gas near the safe would lake some time to disperse, and unless he opened one of the windows, the room would be untenable for a while. When at last he returned to the sate, the gas still hung about but was not strong enough to worry him. Still keeping to one side, he pulled the door wide open. Had he been in front of the safe when the gas charge had exploded, he would have been blinded «nd coughing helplessly by now. He took out his pencil-^torch and shone it into the safe—and was not surprised to see a second door. This wasn't so simple and old- fashioned as Kenley's nephew seemed to believe. Then he saw a thin rubber- insulated wire, running round all four sides of the inner door. If he pulled the door open, l jangling alarm would rouse the household. He took out a smal! screwdriver and pushed the wire gently between the door and the frame; minutes flew, but his movements were slow and steady, as if he had plenty of time. The wire was tucked away at last. The door opened easily. But he kept to one side, prepared for any trick . . . A sharp, soft sneezing sound came with a yellow flash; behind him, something hit the wall with thud. Dear Fenner. The gun, with its silencer, was wedged between the books which were crammed inside. TITANNERING glanced at the 1 first two titles. One was "The Story of a Bad Boy" by Thomas B. Aldrich. He could not Imagine it to be valuable. The title-page told him that it had been published in the United States in 1870; the leaves were mostly uncut. The other was a tall Boswell's "Life of Samuel Johnsori," which looked like a first edition. It was valuable to collectors, put hardly worth a fortune—•400 pounds at most. Some of the others, were comparatively modern, »nd could be picked up at auctions for a few pounds. The value of the books did not explain Fenner's precautions. They were now all on the desk, in three piles; it was as much as he could do to lift one pile in comfort. But he could take the smaller volumes, and if he could find another sack, he might be able to hide the larscr ones in the grounds. He sorted the books out again, then went across the hall and out of the front door, placing the books on the steps which led to a lawn.
