conjunction with a dictaphone. Going over to his writing-desk he opened a drawer and carefully lifted out a cardboard box. From this he drew a small wax cylinder about six inches long. This he placed on the machine and set it going. Brewer's face was a study as he listened. It was none other than the voice of him whom the rogues of Bottle Bank called " Master." The cruel calm way in which he spoke of Erik made his blood run cold ; and when the record came to a finish he could only look at Gerry and gasp.
" Whoever was that monster ?" he asked at last.
" Isn't he a nasty sort of fellow ? " laughed Gerry. "Well, he is the man I am looking for. He's the one behind those two attempts to learn our Navy's secrets. He is behind the two dupes we have locked up. They'll tell us something when they hear their Master's voice ! "

" Well, he may have another shot at those plans," said Brewer slowly. " But look here, sir," he went on, " you haven't told me how you found out about that man's shoulder-or how you got that record of their leader's voice."
" All in good time, my friend," smiled Gerry. " I can't give my secrets away like this! "
" Oh, come on, sir," pleaded Brewer.
" Well," said Gerry slowly. " There's a poor halfwitted young Russian in the gang-and he is such a child."
The C.I.D. man looked expectantly at Gerry, awaiting for his further explanation.
But Gerry did not give one.
