CHAPTER IV - THE COMMANDER'S SECRET

furtively tried on in the train coming North. He hated them ; but made no attempt to resist the impulse to wear them. It so happened that, as he stepped out of the train at Tynemouth, he almost bumped into the Colonel-the very last man he wanted to see at the moment.
" Good heavens, old chap," the Colonel cried, when he saw the glasses, " what on earth's the matter ?"
" Just a little temporary trouble thanks, Kenton," was the off-hand reply. And as the Colonel recognised this eccentricity to be quite in keeping with the rest of his strangeness lately, he did not say anything more about it. As a matter of fact, he had something much more important to tell his friend.
" I say," he cried excitedly. " I saw that man again last night-walking along the pier-you rememberthe one we saw last September !"
Finch became alert at once.
" Did you catch him ?" he asked.
" No ! confound it," said the Colonel in disgust. " He simply disappeared into the air. We had the guard turned out ; but they couldn't find any traces of him. I think he must have had a boat."
" What about the coastguard-didn't he see any suspicious person about ? " asked the Commander, strong in his innate faith in the Navy.
" That's just it," cried the Colonel. " The poor fellow was found this morning dying, at the foot of the cliff not far from where that other body was found."
A sudden fear gripped the Commander's heart :
· Did he say anything ?" he asked in a hoarse voice.
" Well, he was pretty well done for by the time they found him," the Colonel said. " And what makes it all the more curious is that he had exactly the same mark at the base of his skull as the other fellow had !'
" But did he say anything ?" demanded the othcr again.

" Nothing that seemed of any use," answered the Colonel. " He appeared to be rambling. He kept on saying ` twisted-all twisted,' over and over again. But goodness only knows what he meant."
But the Commander thought he had a very good idea!
