CHAPTER XVI - THE NEXT-DOOR NEIGHBOUR

" A gentleman has called, sir," came the butler's voice at the door. " He said he saw the ambulance and wondered how Mr. Gerry was. I told him what you said I had to tell all callers."
" Thanks," said Gerry as the man prepared to retire. " But who was he ? "
" Mr. Bernotte from next door, sir," was the surprising answer.
" But how did he know it was you who was carried in on the stretcher ? " asked Brewer suspiciously.
" I don't know," answered Gerry grimly; " but it looks as though we had scored a trick."
And his eyes wandered to the open drawer.
" Well, our little scheme of 'lying low' becomes all the more necessary now," he went on. " If our friend Bernotte is interested in us, we must play up to him. On the other hand, we are basing our suspicions on very slender evidence, if we expect much from this enquiry of his. After all, it was a very natural thing to do, when he saw the ambulance draw up at the door."
" Have it your own way, sir," said Brewer rather huffily; " but I have my own ideas! "
" Oh yes !" smiled Gerry. " You may be right. Still, we'll give it a chance. Now trot along to Mr. Butler's house and see him. Tell him that you have been put in charge of the case concerning the disappearance of his clerk, and get the young man's description. Meanwhile, warn him on the quiet that ` Mum's the word.' Don't give the show away about 'lie. I still think the uncertainty of not hearing what Was the result of his little plot, will bring the murderer °ut into the open, in some way or other."
Brewer departed on his errand, and Gerry was left alone for a while to think. He was most upset at the idea of someone breaking in and prowling over the house, though he himself was very careful never
