CHAPTER IV - THE COMMANDER'S SECRET

eyes knew the marvellous possibilities of his inventionbut they guessed ! And for him, danger of the very worst kind lurked at every corner. Sufficient is it to say, however, that, so far, there had been no indication of anything suspicious, and the " Powers-that-be " seemed quite satisfied that all was well. At least they had not said anything.
The Commander put down the receiver after his talk with the Colonel with a strange feeling of uneasiness. For some unearthly reason he had begun to feel afraid ; but of what ? It was inexplicable ! It was almost as though he expected something terrible was about to happen again-nay i knew it was going to happen. . . ! He walked over to the tall windows which looked out over this tremendously important shipyard bordering the shining river. A sigh escaped him as he saw the green fields and leafy trees away in the distance beyond the fringe of smoke-then fell to the scene below him. He could not avoid the contrast-peace and war. The glorious country so jolly and full of luxuriant lifeand here, the gaunt skeleton of a grim monster of destruction. Yes ! Beautiful though the Queen Mab was, he could not think of her in any other way. And his own share of it ? Well

" Comte de Faucelles," he said aloud. " Who on earth is he ? "
" There is something on the back, sir," suggested the man.
Turning over the slip, the Commander suddenly stiffened. His heart began racing madly with new fear. Written in a neat hand were the words: " Kiel, 1902."
