They moved forward, ana he .recognized both Abel and Higby, Then a third man appeared, the keeper of North Lodge. All of them had overcoats over their pajamas. "Who called you?" asked Mannering abruptly. "Fred Mason, from the lodge," said Abel promptly. "He heard a car, and looked out of the window —ano then he saw two cars. Was yours one of the cars?" There was a hint almost of suspicion in Abel's manner, and Higby and the lodge keeper appeared to be staring intently, almost accusingly. Mannering said: "Yes. The'other one got away. I had a puncture. Do you know what happened?" 'We know a ladder was taken from the garage and left outside." said Abel. "But we don't know where they used it." Mannering told them what had happened. They ' seemed dumbfounded. Abel broke- the silence with a soft: "Did they think she was Lady Gloria, I wonder?" Either he knew—or he was quick on the uptake. Mannering realized with a sense of shock that there, was clear indication that the ddnapers had not worked with anyone inside the house. Abel, Higby and anyone here could have told the men that Mary wasn't loria. If it had been » cast of mistaken Identity, then neither Abel nor Higby was working with Fcnner—and probably F e n n e r > hadn't a spy In the house. | "We must tell the police," said Higby. ... "I telephoned them," laid Mannering. "Is there anything we can do?" [asked Abel. Mannering said: "Yes, Abel.' [Look tot four *s»-*h« <te« thtt scared Lady Gloria the other evening, and also scared you. The dog has been missing from your father'f cottage since this morning." For the first time, Mannering saw Abel really taken aback. "Not—not Leo!" gasped Abel. "Yes, Leo. I saw him yesterday. He's got a wound, caused by a bullet—and someone had attended to it," said Mannering sharply. "I—I can't believe it. I just can't believe that Leo would—" Abel broke off. Mannering said: "You can't believe that he would have kept away from you in the thicket, can you? I find it hard to believe, too." Abel cleared his throat. "Mr. Mannering, I tell you truly, I didn't know. I still can't believe that it's true, that Leo was that dog." "No doubt about It" TVEXT morning, just after nine o'clock, Longley sent a message asking Mannering to see him in the library. The sergeant's' eyes were clear, he had recovered from his shock—but there was a cold, accusing aloofness in his manner. "What were you doing out at two o'clock in the morning?" Longley asked abruptly. "Didn't I tell you? I was worried about Lady Gloria and drove over to the cottage." "That's a fine story," said Longley, in a tone not far removed [rom a sneer. "I saw several of Gaddcn's men there, she was all right. Coming back, I saw i car on the road and the gates closed. I gave chase, and they put • bullet in my front wheel." "I don't like the way you've been going on," growled Longley. "If they stopped you last night, why didn't'they come back and finish you off?" "I hnd » gun." "You're pretty slick," said Long- can get that into your head, Mr. Mannering." Mannering said: "Youll flna that Bristow does, and that should encourage you. There's just a chance that because I was out last night, the St. Maiden people will trace that car. There are other things, too. The dog was in the grounds. I set Abel, Higby and UM lodge keeper on to look for it Mannering went to breakfast. Lorna was already at the table. "What did Longley want?" she asked. "He thinks I'm the villain of the piece." "What's he going to do?" "He knows he can't do much." "Was Mary mistaken lor Gloria?" Lorna asked. "The question on everyone's lips," said Mannering. "Darling, we don't know much about Fenner, but—" 'I know everything about Fenner," said Lorna, with unexpected sharpness. 'Oh. Everything?" 'Everything that matters. He's bad." A FTER breakfast he went up to the library, but it was empty— Longley might be at the telephone, telling Bristow of his.latest reasons for suspecting Mannering. Mannering went downstairs again, but heard nothing from the switchboard. Higby came out of the passage near it, and slopped in the middle of a step when he saw Mannering, as if he were startled. "Good morning, sir." "You had no luck last night, I'm told," said Mannering. "I'm afraid not, sir." The footman slipped past quietly. Mannering had never heard him raise his voice, and last night h* had shown admirable self-control. Mannering pushed tjio door of the cubby-hole containing the switchboard, but it opened only a few inches. He put his head around the door. Longley was sitting in front o£ the switchboard, his head resting on the little ledge in front of It, his fingers touching the keys. Blood turned his fair hair to crimson, and dropped onto his hand and onto the keys. He was still breathing.
