PROLOGUE - A LINK IN THE CHAIN

Royston, from the ` Yard,' tracked him down. But now he will never pay for all the harm he has done, which seems a pity-he was such a traitorous scoundrel."

And that was when he saw the ray of hope ! It seemed pretty certain that they could not distinguish who was who-or even how many bodies there were in that dreadful heap over there on the road. In that case they would never know he -was not dead too ! If he could only get away from here, he could still carry out his Plan! Had he not already prepared the ground so carefully ? All he had to do was to step into that new life which awaited him-which he had so cleverly created and thought out for use in an emergency like this, months and months ago.
But he was anticipating all this without knowing the extent of his injury ; and now, as he tried to move, his whole body was torn with terrible agony. He felt as though he were just a smashed-up mass of pulp which throbbed with excruciating pain.
Still, the spirit inside of him was one of indomitable purpose-yes, and courage. He was certainly not going to let this last chance slip through his fingers -however nerveless their grasp !

" Well, sir," said the young doctor smilingly, " I think you'll do now."
" Thank you," came the reply in muffled tones. ` And when may I take this bandage off ?"
The young man's face became very grave, and the smile was replaced by a look of intense pity.
" That is what I am anxious to speak to you about,"
