CHAPTER III - THE BODY ON THE SANDS

evening pow-wow. It was a delightfully mild evening, although very dark, because the September full moon kept hiding behind heavy clouds every now and then.
They had been so interested in their talk that when the clock in the barrack square suddenly struck ten they were quite surprised to find it was so late.
" Time to go to bed," said the Commander, who was gazing out to sea, fingering his rather full naval beard and moustache reflectively. Then suddenly he gave a start and grasped the Colonel's arm :
" Look," he cried. " Who on earth's that ?"
The Colonel looked in the direction his friend was pointing, and to his amazement saw a man coming towards them along the lower part of the pier. Now no one had any right to be there at any time without authority-much less at this time of night. The place was private.
" By Jove-a spy," gasped the Colonel.
It was a long-standing joke among his friends that the Colonel had spies on the brain. Everything that went wrong, he attributed in some way or other to their activities.
This time it looked as though he were right. They were too far away to distinguish the man's face, but they could see that he was curiously interested in everything. Every now and then he would flash a light about him, stopping occasionally when he saw something that attracted him. Gradually, however, he came to the end of the pier, where he was held up by the iron gates which stood there.
" Come on, Finch," cried the Colonel. " We've got him now ! He can't get out of that gate-it's locked."
They made off to the steps leading down to the little bay ; but before they were half-way down, the man had unlocked the gate with a key and carefully re-locked it after him. About a hundred yards away was the broad asphalt road leading up into the town.
