CHAPTER XIII - THE TYNE DEFENCES

Saints of Old. Yet, all the time, the Colonel was conscious of a restless, dissatisfied air about their guest. It was as though he had expected to find much more than this and felt disappointed. This puzzled the Colonel, for the ruins of Tynemouth are famous among archaeologists. Evidently Madelaine noticed it too, and wanted to give a good impression to their important guest. They were just passing a door near the castle block when she stopped.
" Why not let him see the Table ? " she asked suddenly.
The Colonel stopped dead in his tracks. He had not thought of this. Yet ! No unauthorised person was allowed to enter that room.
" Table! " echoed the Comte in faultless English.
" We always call it 'the Table,' Comte," explained the soldier. " But it is really the control-room of our mine defences."
The Comte looked interested at once ; he had seen nearly everything he wanted to see-but this strange man knew that now was coming the crowning moment of an already very instructive afternoon.
" How fascinating," he said. " I have always wished I knew more about these intricate things."
That settled it. He was interested ! And furthermore, he was ignorant of the significance of such things. After all (the Colonel temporised) he would not understand. In that moment of hesitation he was lost. Perhaps more because of Madelaine's appealing look than anything else.
Pulling out a key, he inserted it in the lock. The door swung open silently and purposefully. As the three of them entered the room they could sense an atmosphere of grim reality. The Colonel by this time began to wish he had not listened to his wife ; but it was too late now, they were standing by the Table.
