The job would ake another hour — and Lorna :houid be worried by now. He :ouldn't be sure whether be had icard a footfall, whether she had ;ome to listen at the door and ;otie oft again, or whether the po- ice had been warned. Not know- ng was the worst part of it all— md the fact that If Hlgby thought ie had been trapped, he would ;hoot to kill. The whole story was out; there ucre really two—Fenncr's greed, rligby's passionate hatred. That wired had done much evil out served one good purpose. It had jriven Higby to tormenting Gloria, .o gloat over her agony of mind; jut for that, he could have stolen :he books, one at a time . . . Mannering saw the handle at ;he door turn. Higby looked at the door, saw .he handle moving, then swiveled lis gun around. Mannering flung nmself backwards in his chair. Che shot rang out, the bullet massed between his waving legs, Se saw nothing, but heard the ioor burst open, heard three rlng- hg shots. He didn't know whether rligby had been hurt or not; didn't ;ven know whether the police had :ome. (t might be Lorna. she iiight be— "He's not nerel" cried Lorn*. She meant Mannering. He was behind the desk; they Couldn't see him from the door. "Bill!" She cried Brlstow'j name. "All right," called Mannering, and strusEled up to a sitting position. "Careful with iligby, he—" "He's all right," said Brlstow "We've sot him In the arm, and have taken his gun. All ov«r John." • • • T ORNA rounded the desk. Man*- ncring could sec Higby reeling back againit tbt bookcase*. Gadden was her*, too, »nd the room was filling up with detec- ives. Hlgby was between two of hem, and holding up his right wrist; blood dripped from It, His ace held a wild, venomous look and his eyes were blazing. "Have you found out where th« ;irl is?" Bristow asked Msnner- ng. Higby shouted: "No, »nd he never willl I warned him it he wanted to we her" aliv« he shouldn't try any tricks. He won't see her again, none of you'll see ier — you won't find Fenner, either!" His voice wa» rasping on a high pitched note and his eyes still blazed. "But Fenner will find lim. Fenner won't take this lying down, you haven't much longer to ive. Mannering." 'Now that'! enough—" Bristow began. 'Enough?" icreeched Higby. "I haven't properly started yet. You—"' "John, keep him quiet and listen me," said Lady Bream. Mannering hadn't even noticed that a man had released her and helped her to her feet, and that another was kneeling over Abel Now all looked towardi her, and her voice was quiet although it carried well. 'John, it's true, I am his mother, I've known who he li ever since he came here. I've witched him. Of late, I've told him that I knew, that I wanted to help him, and to ake amends. But I didn't trust him." Lady Bream ibook h«r head then went on: "1 wasn't sure until yesterday that he was responsible for much that has happened here. H«d known, 1 would have told th? police. But becau«« I'V* been watch- Ing him, I know several things h didn't renlize anyone knew. For instance, where blf friend Fenoer i> now." Higby crt«J: "X*i w> one know*!" "When Dr. Halsted was here, I leard him speak to you." said Lady Bream. "I didn't understand what you meant at the time—I realize it now. He said that if here were trouble here, you hould go to the nursing home where Gloria was to have been aken. It is in Putney. Mary may >e there too." The Plying Squad raided several Putney nursing homes, and ound the right one at the third attempt. Halsted, Fenner and even men were taken to Cannon Sow, and Bdstow was informed >y telephone. Mary was quite safe. At Lithom Hall, Abel wasn't jadly hurt. • • • T HE trial ot Fenner, Halsted, Higby and their accomplices was over. The papers had given prominence to Mannerlng's part in the affair and Bristow was duly com- jlimentary. Longley, who had jeen slugged just as he was about to tell Bristow why he suspected vlannering, had fully recovered. And Mannering had even sent a ;oy pistol to Derek Peacock, the joy who had helped him. Mary had been back at Jeremiah Caldecott's shop for flve months. Gloria was quite herselt again -r younger , and gayer and with many young friends. Sunlight, on spring day. Mannering learned other things. That Lithom, for instance, had been asked to resign when it was known that he had strong Fascist sympathies. That Fenner was in the pay of a foreign government That none of the really valuable books at Lithom Hall had been damaged, and that a capable librarian was now installed there. Darling," called Lorna, from the kitchen, >l Mannering turned the details over in his mind. ! Yes, sweet." 'Longley and Mary Scott are getting married." "Nice work!" "We'll have to get them a really good wedding present," said Lorna. "And we're going to lose our maid. Stella's been told she ought to have her voice trained professionally."
