H w r n I t h tor Ihr XII T LOOKED at the picture of Cravath in the sloop. Some photographic trick had given his jaw a pronounced jut that it didn't have in actuality. And yet, his real jaw was firm and determined enough. I couldn't imagine a man with a chin like that quietly and supinely acceding to—say, blackmail. T fingered the statuette of the bowler, hefted it, admired it. A graceful beautiful little thing, throwing sharp silvery gleams gainst the dark decor of the rfen. Then I studied the picture of the Yale football team .that had won the Big Three championship. TXimont plnyed with Cravat found him standing in the back row, a younger, slimmer Dumont, eyes keen even in this old photograph, and with a luxuriant mop of hair. - H . . . T stopped thinking.

You'd be surprised though, how many times rooms aren't." Mrs. Ring probably suspectec that I was not quite as advertised While Cravath hadn't troubled to explain me when introducing us the mere fact that he had brough me into such a conference woult have given her food for thought. "Will there be anything else, Mr >rth?" she said now. I forbore to point out that sh ",'as here on her own.

Hut from somewhere on my right came a slight crackle, as of a twig snapping. The next instant I was certain, intuitively. A fourth person, iden- lity unknown, lurked in the little wood.
