THE BEAST WITH FIVE FINGERS

though their intimacy would, doubtless, have been greater, had they shared the same religious views. Adrian held to the oldfashioned evangelical dogmas of his early manhood; his nephew for many years had been thinking of embracing Buddhism. Both men possessed, too, the reticence the Borlsovers had always shown, and which their enemies sometimes called hypocrisy. With Adrian it was a reticence as to the things he had left undone; but with Eustace it seemed that the curtain which he was so careful to leave undrawn hid something more than a half-empty chamber.
Two years before his death Adrian Borlsover developed, unknown to himself, the not uncommon power of automatic writing. Eustace made the discovery by accident.

`King George ascended the throne in 1760,' wrote the hand.
`Crowd, a noun of multitude; a collection of individuals. Adrian
Borlsover, Eustace Borlsover.'
`It seems to me,' said his uncle, closing the book, `that you had much better make the most of the afternoon sunshine and take your walk now.'
`I think perhaps I will,' Eustace answered as he picked up the volume. `I won't go far, and when I come back, I can read to you those articles in Nature about which we were speaking.'
He went along the promenade, but stopped at the first shelter,
