CHAPTER IX - A WAX CYLINDER

questions through the medium of the echo in a cave.
It was Seventy-seven's special task to smash each wax cylinder as soon as it was run off.
" I have much to tell you, my friends," said he, when at last they were all gathered round. There were thirty-two of them, all told. " The Master has some special work for two of you."
The air suddenly became a perfect hum of excitement.
" No! No!" he laughed. " We must be fair. We will ballot as usual. It is work for 'B' Class."
" B" Class was the criminal section-and its ranks were composed of expert craftsmen who hesitated at nothing. There were nearly twenty men who now gathered about a side table, on which stood a box. They took numbers from this, to decide the order of their drawing.
" The first two who draw red discs have it," said Seventy-seven. " It's a pity Erik isn't here-he would have delighted in this."
The most eager of the lot was a young red-faced Russian. He was not a pretty sight to look at, though he had a profile that anyone might have been proud of. He wore a shade over his left eye, and just above and below this could be seen the edges of an ugly scar. He had got it by a cruel blow given him by the mate of the ship from which he had deserted. That, at any rate, was his explanation to the little weedy man when he had met him at a rebel meeting on the Town Moor one night.
A few of the gang had been holding forth about the rights of the poor, when the young Russian burst in on them for help. He said he was utterly stranded -though it was a long time before they actually could make out what he wanted, for he spoke no English. They were forced by the circumstances to take care of him-though it had not quite pleased them, at first.
