CHAPTER XV - THE CUNNING OF A FIEND

about the father of the girl he was madly in love with.
Then came the coded wire from London !
Much to his surprise it was from the Chief, demanding his immediate presence at Headquarters. Gerry, greatly puzzled, but very hopeful that it meant some clue to help him, lost no time in looking up a train. He found a good one which left Newcastle at two o'clock that afternoon ; and when it left, he was aboard, eagerly on his way to Town. All during the journey he was thinking of Molly. She had been gone nearly two days now. He ought soon to have some word from her. It was rather a blow to his feelings for her that she should treat him so casually. But poor Gerry-he had never understood women !
He arrived in town about eight that evening and was met by a car from Police Headquarters. The General never wasted any time-he was going to see him to-night.
General Mason was an interesting man ; his importance as the Chief of Britain's Espionage System was second to none in the world-and he was quite capable of accepting any responsibility that came his way. Yet there was nothing hard or ruthless about him. He was a kindly man, with a sympathetic expression in his eyes which could change with astonishing rapidity from gravity to the merriest twinkle one could wish to see. But to-day he was looking very grave when Gerry entered the room.
" Hullo, Gerry," he said by way of greeting. He was an old friend of Lord Tankerton, and had kno«'n this young fellow from his boyhood.
" Good evening, sir," replied Gerry heartily, though he wondered what the anxious look on the General's face meant.
" How are things up north ? " asked the Chief, by way of beginning.
