THE ENQUIRY BEGINS

"Have you ever had any other strange messages?" Royston went on relentlessly. He was not at all satisfied, yet, about this witness.
" Let me see now," said the agitated Baron. "Oh yes! I remember."
Royston looked searchingly at him-was this some red herring he was going to draw across the path?
" One day, he received a most extraordinary wire," went on the other.
" Can you remember it?" asked Royston coldly.
" ` In Mayfair there are some little pigs'," he quoted, evidently searching his brain hard. "No! That's not quite right. But it was very like that."
" What on earth does it mean? " asked Royston, half intrigued, half annoyed that the old man should be so stupid as to think he could get over him with that cock and bull story. Then an idea struck himit might be true
" Are you sure it didn't mention the number of pigs there were? " he demanded.
" Yes, of course-of course," cried the Baron. "And it seemed so unusual, that I wrote it down."
For the first time since they met, Royston began to look with something like friendliness at the man he was questioning so hard. If he really had put down the number and the message, it might mean that he had been really mystified himself.
" Here it is, m'sieu," said the Baron, who had been turning over the pages of a diary. 'In Mayfair there are 3,z96 extra little pigs'-that was it. Now, isn't it foolish?"
" Why did you not ask him about it?" demanded the younger man.
" Well, m'sieu, to tell the truth, I thought it a silly joke on the part of Lord Valentine or Monsieur Ajax.
