It riled him to think that but for Mannering, he might never have mown of Fenner's existence—or :Jiat Fenner and Kenley were one ind the same. Abet White, ihe head groom at Lithom Hall declared thai the late ari's gray horse had been out dur- ng the night. Gadden had asked Bristow whether he thought it possible that Hr. Mannering would take the law nto his own hands. Bristow had countered: "Any •eason for thinking it might have >een Mannering?" "I'd a feeling that he'd been to rtarchant House before," Gadden lad said. "And there's another hing, Mr. Bristow. Through him VG found some books which the hief had obviously taken away :om the house, and left in a hedge. le didn't actually find them, but ?e shouldn't have found them if le hadn't been there. Not yet, nyhow. And I've been wondering Ince then, just why he's taken uch an interest in Lady Gloria. k is a relative, isn't he?" 'Bristow had laughed. "A distant onnection by marriage. If you're hinking that Mannering might be ivolved in Lithom's death, to get he fortune, forget it. I wouldn't ut it past htm to play the fool, but e's interested in Lady Gloria be- ause he wants to <nd her trou- les." • Gadden did not act too con- in cod. The telephone bell rang. Bris- )w, alone in the office, picked up le receiver. "Sergeant Longley, liking (or DU, sir." "Put him through," said Bris- iw, and groped for • clfaret. He t it. "That you sir?" Longley's volcr u pitch*! low, r«UMT lik* Mu- nering's had been the previous day. "Yes." "I'd better start from the beginning, sir. Mannering was in the library this morning, and told me he'd been picking out some titles for Quinns' customers. I didn't question it at the time. Then later I found two haversacks stuffed behind some books. They weren't very dusty, ano there were one or two fragments of oak leaves sticking to them." "Yes," said Bristow. "Then 1 discovered something that shook me pretty badly, sir. The books Mannering had picked out were the other lilies on the list —follow me—the titles not founo under the hedge." "Yes." "So I've had a careful look at them," said Longley, and his voice rose a little. "One of the books has been damaged quite recently— it's got' a shallow groove in the leather binding. No doubt about it being new, and not much doubt that it was caused by a bullet The thing is, sir, that the man who broke into Merchant House got away on horseback, and if he were carrying these books on his back, they might have stopped a bullet. I'm wondering why Mannering picked 'em out? I've been wondering whether it's possible that he went to Marchant House last night." ' • "You haven't tackled him about this yet, I hope?" "Great Scott, no!" "Then; don't," said Bristow. "I'll Ind an "excuse for coming down. Don't let him think you suspect anything." • • * ll/fARY went to the window of her room. It was dark outside. She stood by the open window, looking up at the bright.stars ano over the shadowed parkland She *aw tomalhifig mov«, caught lac a moment in the light from the window—a dog, she thought At any other time she might have thought more of it, but just then she was thinking of. Ted Longley. It wasn't only his good looks; there was something about him— She needed no telling what he felt; that was equally absurd. She couldn't alter facts; she felt different since leaving London, ana it wasn't simply because she was back in the country. She turned away from the window and got into bed. She didn't go to sleep at once, ,but was pleasantly drowsy and comfortable. She heard a car move down the drive and wonaered who was going out so late at night, but it didn't really disturb her. She was drugged by her thoughts into forgetting that she had come here as a companion to a girl who was no longer here, into forgetting that she might not see Ted again when he left here—and he'd behaved almost as if he wanted to leav* that afternoon! He might even have gone, but for Mannering. That was because of his work, of course, he would always put his work first. Rightly. CHE was sound asleep, at one ° o'clock. All was quiet. There was no wind; nothing to rustle the trees outside. The night was clear and the moon was just rising, to spread its gentle light. There was a sound. A slight, gentle scraping noise, at the window, as if a ladder were being put into position against it. Mary stirred in her sleep, but didn't wake. A man's face appeared at the window. The silhouette of his head and shoulders wns very clear and dark, blotting 1'iit some of the stars, (T» B* Cuuliouod) Television— Tonife, Tomorrow WMCT, Memphis, Channel 5 THURSDAY NIGHT, JUNE 46:00 Groucho Marx 6:30 TV Theatre 7:00 Dragnet 7:30 Theatre 8:00 Martin Kane 8:30 Arthur Godfrey 9:00 My Little Margie 9:30 News Reporter 9:45 Tonight in Sports 9:55 Weather 10:00 Playhouse of Stars 10:30 Aian Young 11:00 News 11:05 Club Embassy 11:20 Quick As A Plash 11:50 News VZ:00 Sign Off FRIDAY, JUNE 5 7:00 Today 7:25 News 7:30 Today 7:55 News 8:00 Ding Dong School 8:30 Prologue to Future. 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 Homemakors 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 Eddie Fisher 5:45 News Caravan 6:00 Dennis Day 6:30 Life of Riley 7:00 Big Story 7:30 Hopalong Cassidy 8:00 Cavalcade of Sports 8:45 Greatest Fights 9:00 The Doctor 9:30 News Reporter 9:45 Tonight in Sports 9:55 Weather 10:00 Names the Same 10:30 City Hospital 11:00 News 11:05 Red Buttons 11:35 Anywhere USA 12:05 News 12:10 Sign Off Read Courier Hews Classified Ads.
