CHAPTER I - A MYSTERIOUS AFFAIR

night-haven't we, Heinrich ? You must go away at once."
Their rather awesome visitor laughed softly to himself, as though he were immensely amused at the idea.
" What !" he said softly. " Out there, among the wolves? Listen!"
There was a sudden snuffling noise at the outer door, as though a bunch of dogs were sniffing the warm air which filtered through into the cold night outside. But it was a more sinister sound than dogs can make. It was the stealthily sucked-in breath of beasts of prey in search of blood.
Wolves! " gasped the older man.
" You would not send me out among them, would you ? " said the stranger quietly-it was almost as though he were laughing at them up his sleeve, all the time.
The younger man was bolder than his friend.
" We have our orders," he said rather unsteadily. 'Under penalty of imprisonment," he added, reaching for his revolver. " You must go, I'm afraid."
The man in the black fur cloak did not speak. But his eyes flashed with the fury of a man who was not used to being questioned as to his actions. It was easy to see that this fellow by daring to threaten him, had incurred his anger. There was almost a red light in those deep-set eyes as they turned on the luckless man. .., There was murder in them . . . something worse perhaps. . . . He slowly lifted up his light hand and pointed at the young man who tremblingly sank on his knees in mortal terror-whilst his friend stood transfixed to the ground he stood on. The windows suddenly gave way with a fearful crash ; and, as the glass fell shivered upon the floor, the framework was filled with the gaunt lean faces of starving wolves, keen on the scent of warm human flesh.
