For Service Dial 3816 BOOKS FOR THE BARON Anthony Morton 9orr»t9HT mi ir JOHN ciuiir - XXV TIE put the parcel and the smaller books into the haversacks, and went to the garage. It was locked, but one of the watchman's keys fitted it There were three cars. At the back were several sacks, clean and new The strong hessian would , easily bold the books. He filled two. tied the necks with cord, and went to find a hiding place (or them. There was a thick hedge only a few yards from the oak tree— laurel which had been allowed to grow high and wide before it was trimmed. He stuffed the large sacks into it The front door was still ajar, but he wanted to be off. He unfastened the gray, led him from beneath the shelter of the oak, and tried to mount. The haversacks made him lose his balance. At his second attempt, he swung into the saddle all right, and settled the haversacks on his back. "Off we go!" he said. The gray moved forward eagerly. Then: Crackl He felt a thud but no pain. He darted a glance behind him, and saw the front door wide open and a man standing on the steps, gun in hand. He fired again. The gray, scenting the danger, broke into a canter, which changed to a gallop. The shooting quickened, sharp cracks in the night. He heard men running on the gravel, heard the garagt doors swing open and crash back; suddenly-the drive was illuminated in n great beam of light They were getting a car out of the garage. There was no more shooting; he was out of small arms range. He had to slow down to open the gates, and might have to di«mount. They stopped In front of the rfaics, and the handle was fairly I high—Uarmeriag could IMO for* ward and touch it. He pulled, and the gray edged away as the gate came slowly open. Now the light from the headlamps shone on the wrought iron, casting a wider and brighter beam, and the powerful hum of the engine sounded near. The gray, going at a good quick canter, seemed glad to be oc i 'the move. A cottage loomed up on his right, then another, next h little terrace of them; he was in the village. Mannering knew where he was; he had passed along behind the village to get to Marchant and remembered a grass field on his right, leading to a small wood bordering the main road to Li- thom. If he skirted the wood, he would reach a by-road which he could cross easily: from there he would be able to approach Lithom village from the south, and enter the parkland by the South Lodge gates. It would add half an hour to his journey, but he would avoid the men in the car. He reached the vvood, and rode along the .edge. Now and again he saw a glow of headlights through the trees. The car seemed to be moving slowly, he could Imagine that the men were waiting to shoot on sight. He hitched the haversacks up on his back more comfortably, and settled down to a steady trot TIE bathed .and shaved ( and, by •"••"•half-past 'eight, went to look at the books. One of the first he handled was small and dumpy— nearly two inches thick. A small round hole was drilled .uvthe front cover; the hole looked newly made. A bullet had gone most of the way through, and touched the back cover; only th< book bad saved him. He put this book aside before Lorna saw It. While one or two of the other books were really old and valuable, moti w«r« Interwt- ing collectors' items, but no more. The small book which he had found in the writing-desk was an early Italian production, illuminated in red and black. He put the papers in a drawer in the dressing table and locked it, then prepared to take the booki to the library. Mannering's heart was in his mouth as he walked along the passage. If anyone saw him carrying the haversacks, they would be curious: and he didn't want to answer questions. He reached the library unseen. Then he heard footsteps. 999 'T'HERE was a shelf, half empty, near him. He grabbed the sarks and tucked them behind some books—and as he turned around, the door opened and Longley's fair' head appeared. The sergeant looked startled. "Hallo! You're up early." "Catching worms," said Mannering lightly. "Plenty of worms in some of this stuff." said Longley, frowning. "It's a shame, they ought to have been looked after better. That chap Wilbertorce iust didn't know hi» job. 1 don't think much damage is done—-the worst I came across yesterday I dumped down there." He glanced at the piles of books. "What's brought you here, sir?" "You recommended a visit." Longley laughed. "I didn't think you'd come before breakfast. I've had mine— haven't seen Mary this morning, have you?" Mannering couldn't miss the eagerness in the detective's voice. "She's probably still asleep," he said dryly, and glanced at the books; his own pile looked conspicuous. "Well, I'll get along to breakfast—leave those three pilei for me, will you?" He pointed. "What ar« they?" asked Longley. "Oddments I've had Inqulrlet for at Quinns," said Mannering, "if there's going U> be a sale, 1 may at well be In on the ground floor." "Always with an eye to business," said Longley. "I won't touch cm." <T« B* Television— Tonite, Tomorrow WMCT, Memphis, Channel SATURDAY NIGHT, MAI 30 6:00 My Hero 6:30 Ted Mack 7:00 Show of Shows 8:30 Lone Ranger 9:00 Juniper Junction 9:30 Abbott •& Costello 10:00 News 10:10 Weather 10:15 Sightseeing With Swayzcei 10:30 "Wrestling 11:30 News 11:35 To Be Announced 12:05 News 12:10 Sign Off SUNDAY, MAY SI 10:15 Previews and Newa 10:30 Film Peaturette 11:00 Hippodrome 11:30 Frontiers of Faith 12:00 Zoo Parade 12:30 Beulah 1:00 Burns and Allen 1:30 Future Unlimited 2:00 Roy Rogers 2:30 Ethel & Albert 3:00 The Chimps 3:15 Sunday Muslcale 3:30 pzzie & Harriet 4:00 Meet the Presi 4:30 Slim Rhodes 4:55 News 5:00 Red Skelton 5:30 Mr. Peepers 6:00 Comedy Hour 7:00 TV Playhouse 8:00 Stu Erwin 8:30 Favorite Story 9:00 I Love Lucy 9:30 News 9:40 Weather 9:45 Toast of the Town 10:45 Private Secretary 11:15 News 11:20 Big Picture 11:50 Sign Off BIONDAY, JUNE 1 7:00 Today 7:25 News 7:30 Today 7:55 News 8:00 Ding Dong School . 8:30 Arthur Godfrey ' 9:00 TV Shopper 9:30 Strike It Rich 10:00 Beth Marsh 10:15 Love of Life 10:30 Search for Tomorrow 10:45 Arthur Godfrey 11:00 Storyland 11:15 Guiding Light 11:30 Garry Moore 12:00 Meditation 12:10 News 12:20 Farm News 12:30 Homemakers Program 1:00 Big Payoff 1:30 Welcome Travelers 2:00 Kate Smith 3:00 Hawkins Palls 3:15 Gabby Hayes 3:30 Howdy Doody 4:00 Berl Olswanger 4:30 Industry On Parade 4:45 Hartoons 5:00 Flicker Comics 5:15 News 5:25 Weatherman 5:30 Bob and Ray. 5:45 News Caravan 6:00 Paul Winchell 0:30 Howard Barlow 7:00 Cisco Kid 7:30 Robert Montgomery 8:30 Who Said That 9:00 This Is Your Life 9:30 News Reporter 9:45 Tonight in Sports 9:55 Weather ' 10:00 Wrestling 10:45 News 11:00 Man Against Crlma 11:30 Suspense 12:00 News 12:05 Sign Off Read Courier newi classified Ada.
