The only way to do when you're cornered is to carry the fight to your enemy, cnionce that's the very last thing he expects you to do, and you can enmo timo land a eood wallop be fore he gets his guard tup. That's our move. They think ve're stuck here, helpless, for the night, Scotty. They won't look for us to take the aggressive. Notice that window em-hrasure. Scottyi boy? Did you stop to wonder wnv it s so wasn't done for nothing! The man who built it that , way had a good reason for it. (Notice that the picture hangs midway between those two east windows, where the space between the embrasures sticks furthest out into the r6om? "Notice that peephole j in the picture, Scotty? There was a human eye behind that, looking down here whoro there's an eve there's bound to be a Whole body or a good -..,-t nf one There's an opening 1 1 d. A 4. V. - - -- - behind that picture. An opening big enough for a. man to look through. That's why the embrasure is do deep, Scotty. There's a space there half as big as a hall bedroom. And the picture masks it. "Talk about being trapped behind v barred windows ;and locked doors, Scotty. Why. boy, the only thing that keeps us from getting out of here is an oblong of rotting canvas. There's an opening behind the picture, scotty. And the opening must lead somewhere. Because the man behind it came from somewhere to- get there. That's good logic, isn't it' We aren't prisoners, you and I scotty. We can walk out any time we want to. j ; "And they won't be expecting us. an walk out Of Uw-rooW' all right.

His groping fingers found the stone shelf beneam iU.B .iv-. Noiselessly he drew himself up on he narrow shelf until he was crouchfng Tn front of the picture itself The canvas, he figured, running his hand lightly ! oyer it, was about four by three in area Then, bending low and to the right he felt ' for the I curtain fold Tn which he had hidden the various ticles he had taken from his cloth-arucieH 11 Hosed presently Weibluf Hiny gold penknife which he carried habitually in a compartment' of his wallet. "Lucky this curtain is out or view from the spy hole," he thought. "Else it would have been ransacKea hii t wan rin wn at dinner. An. I'd have had to use my fingernails Instead 01 an incn-iong iiau. Securing the tiny knife, he opened its single little blade and knelt again before the painting. Remembering the artlessly arum arrangement 01 the spy hole, an arrangement -i-oh-v the riiftiire. had been cut in such a way as to leave the flap hanging over tne opening, no resolved to follow the same pattern. Reaching up, he found the top right hand corner of the canvas. Into this he drove the snarp incn ot steel. Then, paralleling the right hand side of the frame, he cut skil fully downward. His blade encountered no stronger r v n 1 Aa itt rT than th rottinsr canvas. It slithered its way noiselessly from top to bottom Of the picture, ciose to the right style of the frame.

Then nanainsr hn listened With his ear to the loosened canvas for any nnccihie sound from the far side. The canvas hung now from its uncut top surface like a curtain. Pocketing the razon-sharp little knife and balancing himself precariously on the stone shelf, Roy Brenner gently pulled aside the loose v.nnino. -onxraa flan With his left hand. With his right he prepared to explore the aperture oenma u. tto was a-tingle with excitement. His nerves were on edge. Before the man's hand could reach forth into the aperture, facott growled fiercely. Through the darkness Brennep could hear the swift padding of the collie's feet as Scott left his place at the foot' of the shelf ana trottea snarpiy acruoo the room. - The collie, like all the best of his grand breed, was quick to note his master's every change of mood. During the past hour ne naa seen Brenner was nervous and eternally nn (riaorrt a en in at snmethine or some body. Therefore Scott had at once dropped into tne roie 01 waituuue-That was why he had reported the presence of some onebehind the picture, half an hour earlier. That too was wny ne now gave a .uuu alarm. Trottinsf to the doorway he growled, threateningly. . At the . same instant a sounded at the panel of the door. The ,me nei-teri summons darted through Brenner's tense nerves like a cannon shot. . He siippea snentiy from the shelf and across the room. As he reached the door tne Knocit ....i. this time more im- nao iciiwvvu, peratfveiy.

I'm sorry I waked you. I've brought you some whiskey to top that quinine, and some" "Thanks," snapped Brennan, in excellent imitation of thp crossness of a newly awakened man. "I don't drink. And if I did I wouldn't take a drink you offered me. Not after the dirty trick you tried to play on my collie. Even if you don't like dogs it was rotten to try to poison Scott.

Roy. with another prodigious yawn, "I found somebody a lOCKea me in. What's the idea ot treating a guest like that?

"One of the servants in locking the house for the night turned the key, not 1 knowing you were in the Gray Room. It is unlocked, now. May I come in with the whiskey, or" - "It is not unlocked, now," aeniea Brenner, crossly. "I bolted it on this side, and I don't care to come out and talk. I'm dead with sleep after that chill and all the fatistia I went through. If you'll -let me get back to sleep again I'll promise to, clear out at daybreak. Good night." ; He stamped away from the do and flung , himself noisily on the bed. Dayne waited a moment longer. Then Roy could hear him tiptoe away down the hall. , "They wanted to wait till enough of them were in the house to maka sure of finishing me," mused Brenner to himself, "and then got ma to open the door. ,A pleasant crowd, Scotty. They" He got no further. The sinister silences were split by a hideous scream a scream of mingled anguish and fright. Then came a, far-off cry: "Brenner! For God's sake, help me! I" - The cry -was strangled into qnick stillness. Continued Next Sunday.

The numbers are the same each month, ilf you are in the habit of mailing the bill with your check and, therefore, have no old bills about the house, remember, when you get your next bill, that it is only necessary to enclose the "stub" portion of bill with your remittance, you will then have a record of your number on the address sde of the portion you retain, j Do not delay paying your bills promptly in the regular way for you get your money on a receipted bill just the same as on one you still have to If your number is published this month do not think that is all you may receive; it may appear again next month or the number of one of your other bills may be published. All Gas, Electric and Telephone bills must be presented within two days after date of publication of numbers. In the case of gas numbers, both numbers upper and lower must compare correctly.
