I heard a controlled, but protest- Ing, h.iss. A tall burly figure waited at the bottom of the steps. "All right, Williamson!" Cra- valh snapped. "Lead on!" Williamson, the chauffer, seemed to want to explain himself. "I was having a look around, sir," he began, "like, you says to, and I. ..." Cravath pushed him roughly. "Later, man!" Without another word Williamn turned and broke Into a run, is larch blazing full-on now. Cravath was hard at liis heels. I came next. Dumonl, who uniil now had appeared stunned, panted in the rear. But suddenly Dutnont sprinted past me; past Cravath. "Is— is . . ." he pufTcd at Wil- li.imson's elbow, but 1 lost the res; of it as Cravaih stumbled and swore. Cravalh righted himself. And I h^ird Williamson, flinging it over his shoulder, "I don't know, sir. O.ulrin't =.iy." i->i;nion; dropped back then, be-..o-.'n Ctavath and myself, a shorl fv.ufJlpd ejaculation escaping him. After thai we just ran. behind Williamson's flickering swaying liaht. I found myself racing down that accursed path before 1 knew it. Down a straight narrow tree-bordered strip where once, I under- stood, gaily-colored peacocks hid preened and strutted. An instant later I was conscious of Williamson, slowing his step«. And I could just make out the fence posts, stubby white spectres in the enveloping gloom. Williamson slopped altogether. The three ot us behind him stopped loo. a bumbling excited little huddle of men, falling over each other, swearing, apologizing briefly, and straightening up. Williamson's flashlight bored a tunnel of radiance through the damp and stirky dark. \Ve saw it, Indistinctly but horribly. A big misshapen bundle, beaten by the rain, draped limply and pitifully over the sagging chains that guarded the end of the Peacock Path. "Dolly!" Dumont's stricken cry came back to us through the monotonous patter of. raindropi. grabed my arm «nd we moved slowly forward. And I had to force myself to look. Dolly Dumont, lying across that cold wel iron, was an even more grotesque and awful speclacle than the broken body of Ames Warburton. Her head, hanging so low that it almost touched the ground, faced the clifl. Evidently she had been moving In that direction when someone, or something, strung her over Ihe chains. Cravath snatched the light from Williamson, played it upon her sagged figure. . The beam showed a crimson patch at the back of her head. Jack Dumonl lifted dazed eyes. "Who could have done this thing?" And when Cravath shook his head helplessly, he kept repeating that phrase, as if it were a kind of litany. The biif chauffeur put > hand on Dumont's arm, drew him gently aside. Cravath bent over the body The next second a low exclama- Iton broke from him. "Onh! She's not dead. At leajt, not yet." I.did as he had done, pul Ihe back of my hand down close to her lips. I felt breath, faint but warm. W« had manifestly been deceived by her dreadfully lifeless look. "What?" The new* snapped Dumont out of his stupor. His voice rose in a clear ringing shout- "Are you sure, Marney?" "Absolutely sure," Cravath cut in. "But she's in bad shape. We've got to get her inside at once. Orth and I can manage thai. Go to the house, Jack, and phone Dr. Dreeves at Port Uston. If you can'l get him, get somebody else. In a hurry. Williamson, you help us lift tier. Then bring a car up to the house. We may have to take her to Ihe hospital." Dumonl, "all trace of dazedncss vanished, was oft even before he finished speaking. Then Cravath and I made a "chair" of our hands Big Williamson lifted Dolly as it she were a baby, eased her into it, putting a slack arm around each of our necks. She was a dead weight, of course, and her head rolled lollingly, drunkenly, between Cravath's shoulder and mine. But when we started back along the Peacock Path, she suddenly gave a little moan. It was weak pathetic sound, but one of the most welcome I have ever heard. Tr/"E made the house slowly bul without too much difficulty, went in by a side door. There Dumonl mel us, "How Is she, Msrney?" He clipped il oul anxiously. Cravalh's reply came in puffs. "I've a hunch she'll b« all right." We carried Dolly up to the rooms occupied by the Dumontn. She moaned again at we laid her on the bed. "Gel Ring, Jack," Cravath said. "She'll know what to do before the doctor gels here." Dumonl disappeared, but returned almosl immediately with the grim-lipped housekeeper. When Mrs. Ring took over, she look over. She asked no questions Only a momenlary flicker of surprise and shock croscd her sharp face. Then she issued orders.
