thnt Cleo hnd left an hour before so
fruntle was tho young olllcor with
anxiety nnd grief that for a tlmo tho
law j or fcurkd for his sanity. liltterly

glare of the urc light In front of the
station sttuck the prisoner's face
IIopo stopped dead In iimti7cmcnt.
"Greet heavens I" he exclaimed;
"It's Gerald Morton."
Following Morton nnd his guards In-
to tho stntlon Hope beckoned to the
Inspector who was on duly.
"What Is ho charged with?" ho
asked. Indicating Morton.
"Murder" the Inspector answered
laconically. "Stabbed a woman."
"Do jou know who sho was?" usked
".Sho claimed to bo n Itusslan count-

"Is there nny objection to my hav-

"Not In thu least" said tho Inspec-
tor nnd ordered u patrolman to bring

"Hello lieutenant" remarked Mor-
ton nonchalantly ns still handcuffed
ho wns led Into thu room. "I didn't
expect to meet jou here."
"Morton" said Hope looking the
other In tho eje "Miss llurko was
kidnaped this evening. I understand
from the pollco that jou could not

do you know who Is? I won't pretend
that I'm sorry for jou Morton for

"I don't know nnythlng about It
Hope" said Morton; "not this time.
I glvo you my word I don't. If I could
help you tlnd her I would. Not for
your sake mind" ho lidded bitterly
"but for hers. She's u mighty game
llttlo girl. I'm sorry I can't help jou."
IIopo turned nway disconsolately
but tho other called him back.
"Aro you still looking for tho secret
of tho submarine?" ho asked lowering
his voice so that tho pollco could not

"Old you keep thnt hook on metal-
lurgy tho one thnt Olga and I tried
to get nway from Doctor Owen In the
restaurant In Sandsboro?"
"Yes It's among my things some-
where." Morton leaned forward until his
lips were close to Hopu's enr.
"Turn to page sixty-one nnd rend
every seventh word" ho whispered.
"If jou tlnd Cleo" ho continued In
u louder tone "tell her that I told jou
this so as to mnko up ns much ns I
can for the way I tteatcd her. Tho

hoarsely as he Joined tho waiting of-

That wns the lust IIjpo suw of Gerald

It wns long nfter midnight when
Hope returned to his hotel but not-
withstanding tho lntene.ss of the hour
nnd his utter weariness ho ransacked
his trunks until ho unearthed tho work

completed tho hidden sentence which
rend: "Kxnmlno cover of this book."
Inserting tho blade of his pocket

In dnjs long passed had evidently

As Hope usee tided the steps there
came fiom an ureuway across tho

and tho two whistles were n signal to

blackness that he hnd to strike a

soon ns jou hand over tho book" de-
clared Mnhlln. "On my honor."
"You haven't anj" sneered Hope.
"I Intend to keep tbo book until you
release Miss Ilurke. I don't have to
trust jou nnd I'm not going to."
"If jou don't hand over the book I'll

his hand ns though giving a signal.

At last the darkness tblist and hun-
ger hid their effect on nerves nlrendy

serted her nnd she gave way Jo tho

During the long hours of her Impris-

of the storehouse a trapdoor which
