DOUBLE DEMON

placed them in the sun to air; then getting into the punt he kept along the reed-fringed side of the lake until he was opposite the island. The island with its solitary poplar and grey stone temple almost hid the hall. Almost but not quite. He could tills see the upper rooms of the east wing and the end of the terrace walk. The risk was negligible. From the bank to the island, from the island to the bank, four times he made the double journey, on each occasion varying his approach. Finally, he fixed on his course; the lake was deep enough there and the bottom muddy. It would all happen in the most natural way. Judith, seated at the far end of the punt, would like to try her hand with the pole. Isabel would say that it wasn't really safe to change places out in the lake. They had better wait until they reached the island. But, of course, it would be quite safe if they didn't hurry over it. And then he would lose hold of the pole just as Judith was creeping along, there would be a sudden lurch, and ... George Cranstoun remembered the pictures he had seen of methods of rescuing the drowning. The method that appealed to him most was that in which the rescuer, swimming on his back supported the head of the drowning person with his hands and held it just above the level of the water. In this case it would be just below.
A gallant attempt at a double rescue.
George Cranstoun smiled.

`But why are they so long about it?' thinks George, as he paces the terrace. `There's nothing much the matter with Isobel.' He had heard nothing about getting a second opinion. The absurd secretiveness of women. Anyhow, he might as well fill in time by carrying down a few extra cushions to the boat-house.
What was Woodford doing hurrying after him like that, poor old Woodford with that hang-dog face of his?
