sufficiently for him to be able to leave her." At eleven o'clock," he said meaningly, as he left.
She was thankful when he went. She wanted to collect her thoughts. . . . She was going away by sea. . . . How could she warn Gerry now?-Warn him of the terrible danger that awaited him at the hands of this evil brute, who cared for no one so long as his plans were carried out ?
Then she saw the tortoiseshell box. It stood on the centre of the dressing-table, a dainty thing some three inches square and about an inch deep. It was obviously intended to hold the few favourite rings and trinkets one kept in daily use. Quickly she picked it up. The lid fitted tightly. It would be waterproof. She was thinking rapidly. She would put her diamond ear-rings inside it, wrapped in her handkerchief. They were very light. Then the box and its contents would be so valuable that they would cause enquiries to be made if ever it got safely cast up on the shore. And then, perhaps, knowing something was wrong, Gerry might find the clue. But she did not realise that Gerry did not as yet know that anything was wrong !

Her heart was beating furiously now-throbbing almost to bursting-point. What would be the end of it all ? Would she be able to get rid of her precious box ? There was a knock at the door.
It was the man who had come to see her earlier in the evening.
" I must ask you to let me bind this silk scarf about Your eyes, madame," he said. You must trust us. It is our only alternative to drugging you."
Poor Molly ! What a ghastly and terrifying experience
