It seemed emp- , i tier because of what had happened !to Mary one: Longicy. The new '- I crime increased the possibility that | they had made a fateful discovery. .! Most of the books mentioned on ' j the list were on or near the library ' | desk at which Longley had been i working. Four were open, and 'had slips of paper at other pages. , i Mannering looked at each marked • j page. Some of the paper was thick land yellowish, there were colored " I illustrations. None of the titles . jwas important: they were all of i value to a collector, but not one appeared to be worth big money. I There was a tap on the door, and } Higby appeared. It wasn'1 usual 'for a footman to tap, but he didn't • {look normal. He was pale and ' icame forward hesitantly. . i Higby said: "Well, sir, 1 Ie«l that lyou might juspect—that is, that I i-niight be suspected of—of Injuring -i |Mr. Longlejr. But I swear it wasn't ( me. sir." . Mannering said coldly: "What ',' makes you think that anyone sus- .. [peels you?" I "Abel White does! He as'good , jas said so, not long ago. And you | passed me near the telephone ; switchboard. Just before you found . 'Mr. Longley. But it wasn't me who attacked Mr. Longley." Hig• jby's voice was humble pleading. ;^ i "I hope'it wasn't," laid Mannet- .ling, still coldly. •'•' "Things might look black against ,jme. sir. but—but—I—1 wanted to , jmake—" he blurted that out, but • stopped. ', "Yes?" ' c "I wanted to make a confession, " sir!" "•! "But you say you didn't attack . iLonfiloy " • I "Mot about Uiai. About aoout my post here, sir. When his lordship took me on. I produced false references, sir. And 1 know how black that might look." He stood rigidly to attention, his face pale and eyes bright; and he looked like Gloria. "Hadn't you satisfactory references?" "Not—lor this kind of work, sir, and 1 spent my childhood in this part of the world. I did fairly well for myself until the war. but after I was demobbed 1 had a bad time, sir 1 took a job as a waiter, because I wasn't skilled in anything and—and then I saw the advertisement 1 felt that I had to try to get the post, and—and I forged the references." "The police weren't after you, were they?" "Of course not! I Just felt that I had to get the job, and—well, I'd heard about Lord Lilhom. I didn't think he would take on a waiter from a second-rate restaurant, and—and I wrote two reference! for myself, giving the name 1 " of men 1 knew were dead —officers in my regiment, sir." Mannering said smoothly: "If that's all the trouble, 1 shouldn't worry about it. I'll have a word with the police." , • • • TVTANNERING went to a small . window and looked out over the parkland. At least a dozen men were moving about the grass, eight or nine of them in a line, their hands almost touching They were «archinj {or t&e weapon, of course. Next moment, one of the police came out of tl.e thicket with his whistle at his lint, and the others turned and hurried towards him. Manneriflf moved from the window and looked Into the hall. Bristow was there, talking to Lorna The Yard man seemed aboul 5 come upst-iri. but Mapped wbao M H* MUUMHTU«, Sf*V/Cf, INC. "Come on, they've made - find," said Mannering, running downstairs. Bristow's car was just outside. He got into the driving seat and Bristow slid in beside him. Mannering and SristOT got out of the car and thrust their way forward, saw a little group of men —and through a gap, saw one man on his knees beside a dog. The man was Abel; the dog Leo. The dog's head had been smashed in with a hatchet that lay nearby. There was blood spattering its shaggy fur—and there was blood on Abel's hands. He looked round, and then stood up, and his movements were slow, like those of an old man's. "If I find who did It, I'll kill him with my own hands." ATANNERING and Bristow turned to the slaughtered dog and to the hatchet. The blade was dull, blunt and blood-stained: a similar weapon as had been used on Longley. There was sticky as well as dried blood on it: probably one was Longley's and the other Leo's. The police chemists would go into that. Abel himsell. two of the gardeners, Higby and the lodge- keeper had been near the thicket at various times—all, ostensibly, looking for the dog. The two gardeners had been here when Higby had come to tell them of the attack on Longley; they had left Higby here alone for a few minutes. They'd heard nothing to suggest that the dog was being killed. Mannering and Bristow went back to the library. "This man Higby," said Bristow, "had the opportunity." Mannering shook his head. "I wouldn't charge Higby—wait and see II there's another attempt to get these books."
