CHAPTER I - A MYSTERIOUS AFFAIR

The two men wondered later what would have been the end of the affair-though little doubt was in their minds. But at the very moment they saw those glittering eyes and dripping jaws, the shriek of an engine's whistle rent the frosty air. At once, the man in black dropped the hand which all this time he had kept levelled at the unhappy man. Then ignoring them all-wolves as well-he stepped out on to the platform.
It had all happened so quickly, that the two men did not realise what he was doing. Before they had time to weigh it all up, the light engine which they had heard whistling came hurrying through the station, and with much hissing of escaping steam pulled up just a little farther along the line. Almost immediately it was followed by the roar of a heavy train in the distance. They had been told from Headquarters to expect this. And now they had let the stranger escape ! In some amazing way the wolves had disappeared from the window ; and when the older man with a new courage dashed over to the broken framework, he could see no trace of them at all. It seemed incredible that such ravenous beasts as these should have been frightened off by an engine's whistle !
Still, he crossed himself gratefully and made for the door as though to go outside.
" What are you going to do ?" asked the younger man.
" I'm going to get that stranger," cried the other.
" Don't be a fool," said the young man. " He will kill you ! Remember those wolves."
" They have gone now," protested the older man.
" Yes ! because he sent them away," was the strange remark.
" Are you mad ?" demanded the other.
" No! " replied Heinrich. " I'm sure he spoke to them when he heard the engine in the distance."
