STOLEN LETTERS

considerably influenced in his judgment by the very charming Mrs. Parsons. Oh, yes ! She was very attractive, and as he looked her over in his mind, Carl had to admit that 'charming' was the only word to describe her properly-though he was completely baffled to know how she came to be the wife of a college servant.
She bore the unmistakable stamp of having moved in good Society ; and even though it may have been acquired by living in expensive hotels, it was not the `air' of one who had just got it through `contact' whilst in an inferior position such as a lady's maid or governess.
For once in his usual healthy life Carl could not sleep when he retired that night. He lay tossing about on his bed whilst all the clocks of Cambridge struck eleven ... then twelve ... then one ! It appeared to him that every college and church had its own clock ; and that every clock had its own set of chimes ; and that no two clocks synchronised. So that at midnight they seemed to go on for nearly ten minutes. Of course this idea was exaggerated on account of his half sleepy state. ... But there was no doubt whatever about the noise of a shifting chair in his sitting-room, just after the Roman Church had played its hymn at one o'clock. It stung him into sudden wakefulness. His first impulse was to leap out of bed and dive through into the other room. Then the same weird `inner consciousness' which had been at work about him so much to-day, seemed to give warning within him. There was a definite sense of danger in the air which caused him to hesitate. He asked himself, Why had the Baron not awakened? He slept, like himself, in a room which opened on to the sittingroom ; and his door had to be passed first by anyone entering the suite. This door of his was always left
