it would account for the strange attack he was now recovering from. It would also account for the bottle being there ; and it evidently would explain the mysterious note on the shelf. But what a queer person this intending murderer must be! (it was characteristic of Gerry that he had not thought about himself yet ; or of the escape he had had). He comes in to murder a fellow in his sleep, and then leaves a bottle to tell him he has done it ! But that was so ridiculous an idea that Gerry knew there was some other reason for the note. He could move pretty freely now ; and his brain was quite clear again ; but his head still swam a bit when he tried to sit up. He lay wondering who could be at the root of this. He felt sure that someone who knew his movements had planned it ! Someone who had cause to fear him. But then, he had not known about the journey himself until an hour or so before he left. Evidently there was someone who kept a fairly close watch on him. Someone who had actually followed him to London ! (Gerry was getting quite interested in his deductions.) If this unknown enemy knew so much, could he have guessed why he had gone to London ? If so, then it was evidently someone who knew about the disappearance of young Wilkinson ? How did he know that he would be on the train- Ah !-he had it now-that man who followed him when he went to reserve his sleeping-berth at King's Cross. He remembered him now ; he had been attracted by him at the time on account of his rather sketchy appearance. The man had worn a big black slouch hat with the brim turned down over the eyes and a scarf about his throat which covered his mouth as well. Gerry had put him down as an invalid because of this heavy wrapping up on rather a mild day, and because of his extremely pallid face-though he did not see it very well. He began to think things were moving a bit now-he would have
