Dr. Chatterton had been waylaid in a London side street, hustled into a taxicab and driven out of London. He had been traced only half an hour ago, locked in a small room in a lonely c»ttage near Woking—a cottage so old and dilapidated that no one had lived iin It for years. The specialist had -no idea why the outrage had^been committed, said Bristow, and he wasn't injured. But he was anxious about Lady Gloria. "He's coming out this morning,' said Bristow. "Tell him he needn't hurry," said Mannering. "She'll certainly be all right until this afternoon. l,ongley's told you what has happened to her, hasn't he?" "Yes. Chatterton thinks that it might be a good idea,"'said Bristow. "Is there anything else to report down there?" "I don't think so, Bill." "Well, I'm going to telephone Gadden at St. Maiden as soon as I ring off. and he'll go to sec whether he can pick up Halsted," said Bristow. "I've already warned him to have Marchant House k watched." "Wasn't it watched last night?" •asked Mannering innocently. "It should have been," said Bristow. He was on edge until he put a call through to the St. Maiden police, and was assured by the squeaky voice of Sergeant Wilkinson that the night duty men at the Whites' cottage had been relieved, and that there had been no incident That settled, Mannering went to the library. Mary and Longley, heads close together, were examining a book. "1 must say you've picked out an odd lot," said Longley, glancing at the pile*. "You've got everything from «n early 'Old Moore's Almanack' to a facsimile ,of th« •Guttnberf BibltV "You know what collectors are," said Mannering. He looked at Mary, who had gone to the far end of the room, and was mounting a stepladder. "1 don't know what rubbish you'll find here and I don't know what valuable books there are," he said, "but I'm pretty sure of this—the secret of all the trouble at Lithom Hall will be found in these books." jVfANNERING went downstairs, as the telephone rang. It was Gadden, to ask whether he was going to Marchant. "I hope to be there in 20 minutes. I'll wait for you if I'm there first." "You'd have a job," said Gadden heavily. "I'm in Marchant village now. I'll wait for you." It had started to rain. Mannering drove through the dripping lanes, beneath trees which sent a constant shower of water over the road, and through the misty'drizzle which cut visibility down to 50 yards. He had to slow down at every turning, to make sure that he didn't miss the way. If the rain had started .during the night, he would have been in trouble. When he arrived at the village he saw two cars, including Gadden's old one, standing in front of cottage, outside which was a board headed: "Berkshire Constabulary." Half a dozen villagers were gathered in the doorway of a shop across the road, watching the unusual scene. Gadden caught sight of him from the front room of the cottage, and beckoned. He greeted Mannering gruffly, Introduced him to the local constable, a brisk young man with a Cockney accent. "The birds have flown," growled Gsddcn. "This Dr. Halstcd and the owner of the house, Wilfrid Kenley, were seen to leave belore dawn, I've put a call out for It, It wasn't until this morning that we learned the owner was very like your man Fenner. That came from the men who watched during the night. They were both lured away from the house by two men who left in the early hours, and when they came back, there was a pitched battle going on between the servants and a chap on horseback. The servants overpowered my men, and locked them in a garden shed." "These beggars mean business. But who was the horseman?" "I don't know. Cowley here heard a horse galloping past his window about four o'clock, and a car passed immediately afterwards." « * * )Y drove to the house in their own cars, and pulled up outside the front door. Mannering glanced towards the hedge. The rain was -more than just a nuisance; it might seriously damage the hidden books. He was worrying about that when a nervous- looking woman opened the door. "I want to see Mr. Kenley," said Gadden. "Mr. Kenley was called away early this morning, he—" "The young Mr. Kenlcy," said Gadden. "Oh, Mr. Charles is In, sir." She stood aside for them to enter. "What name shall I give, sir?" "Just say the police." "The po-lice," sighed the nervous woman, and her hands were shaking as she opened the door of the drawing room and asked them to wail. There wasn't a genuine period piece there; it was all reproduction. --Charles Kenley came in, limping slightly. Gadden stared at the young man. His left eye was discolored, his lips were puffy, and there was a red bruise on the side of his chin. His eyes were bloodshot, and he was smoking a clgaret which he took rather gingerly from the corner of his mouth. > "You look as if you've been in the wars, Mr. Kenley," remarked Gadden sharply. "Yes, last night. We had burglars."
