" If it does what we are expecting-you can bet on that," laughed Butler.
" You know," said Riddell Warner in his shrewd North Country way, " things are looking a bit too lively for me-Germany wants war-has been waiting for it for years ; but isn't all this activity on our part just a little provocative ? "

" Ten o'clock," gasped the Commander.

But the Commander could only nod his head. All the time he had been at Thomson-Wentworth's he had never stayed at the office so late as any hour like that !
It must have been someone else . But who?
Now, although he did not say so, Commander Finch
felt that he knew the answer to that question !
