Soon he was standing by the window, staring at the girl. Another man appeared at the top of the ladder. The first put his hand into his pocket, drew it out holding a small rubber bag. The bag was tied at jthe neck with s piece of cord, and i'he unfastened it and then took out a pad of cotton-wool and a tiny, dark-blue bottle. As he uncorked the bottle, th^ other man [joined him—and the pungent smell iof chloroform stole into the room, i Mary lay on her back now. one iarm outside the bedclothes, one bare shoulder showing just above the sheets. The man held the pad of cotton-wool in the palm of his hand, spread a piece of gauz.e over it. He went a little closer, then moved swiftly, thrusting the pad over her mouth and nose, pressing tightly. She kicked and struggled, she writhed desperately—but soon grew weaker aa the chloroform took effect She lay still. I "Hurry," said the man with the chloroform pad. The other tossed back the bedr clothei, lifted the girl and flung her over his shoulder. Making no attempt to conceal himself, Mannering walked aboul near the Whites' cottoge—and five times In 10 minuses, he was chal- lengedl Gadden certainly h«dn't taken «ny chancel. The back and Iront of the cottage was closely watched. One of the guardi was Wilkinson, who told him in a shrill whisper that eight men were within csU. Just after half-past 1, Manner- Ing decided to go back. As h« neareo the North Lodge, he saw the light; of another car In (run! ol nu,i He nac nassrd countryside was asleep; so the lights puzzled him. They were going in the same direction, which was odd, became he should have seen the glow before; the car couldn't have been in front for long. The beam of his own headlamps fell on the gates. They were closed; usually they were kept open. His foot went down on the accelerator, and the car shot forward. The other must have come out of the drive, or been parked near it; someone had closed the gates to hold up possible pursuit. He cast quick glancet right and left—and in the glow, saw the shaggy shape of a dog. Leo! And 'T'HE dog went out of sight, and Mannering flashed past the man; next moment he heard something strike the back of the car. There was another noise, a loud clang; a fender was hit. He didn't turn round, but crouched low over the wheel. The man he had passed was shooting at him. The driver of the car In front was going fast. Mannering heard the squeal of brakes as it went round a bend. His own car held the road well, better than the one in front. The two seemed to be going at about the same speed. The driver in front must know tflat he w«s biing followed. Juit hert thert was • long, straight »tretch. and there was a chance of gaining. Mannering took tho automatic out of his pocket and rested It on the seat beside him. so that he could pick it up more quickly. He put his foot down hard, and th« speedometer needle touched 70, but the leading car was still 50 ynrds ahead. There was ,css than 20 yards [nothing tin* OQ uwj'oad.UH wboit I txtwteo Uu two can now, and BY NIA ZlkVICl, INC. the road was wide enough for him to pass—or would have been, had the other car kept at the side. Now he could see a man's head and shoulders through the rear window. He saw something else, something which puzzled him— chestnut hair. It wasn't a man. It was—Mary Scott! She was in the car; leaning sideways, so that her head just appeared in the window. The other driver was good; he'd steady the car and probably save it from overturning. They were still in the tunnel of trees, Mannering couldn't see another bend yet, so this was the time to catch up with his quarry. The speedometer needle crept towards 75. but the leading car was traveling as fast. Mannering couldn't draw any nearer. Soon they'd take a pot-shot at him. He mustn't shoot until he was a little closer. If he put a bullet through that window, it might go through Mary's head. * • • HPHE ear was no -longer Just a - 1 dark blur, but a clear shape in front of him. The number-plate was easy to read, but it was probably a false plate. Flash—crack! He heard another sound — a crash in front of him; the windshield was suddenly starred with hite lines. The flashes cqme more quickly, three in succession. Mannering pulled the wheel over, scraped against a hedge, and got back onto the road, but the car was pulling badly towards the side—and he realized with a sickening sense of failure that one of the tires was punctured. He saw the red light, much farther away now, and the fading glow of th« headlamps. The red light disappeared, the glow rem.iined. }i» hii'i to stop lo lix liic tire.
