CHAPTER XVI - THE NEXT-DOOR NEIGHBOUR

to leave anything lying about which would be of any use to his enemies. The house itself was a solidly built place, about fifty years old, and of that style of architecture which inclines towards late Georgian days. A portico over the main door and broad ledges above and below the windows afforded good foothold for invaders of the nocturnal art and craft of burglary. The house was easy prey ; but who would want to rob it-except someone who knew all about him ?
Now, one of Gerry's most closely guarded secrets, at this time, was the fact that he was connected in any way to Scotland Yard.

Brewer himself came and went from Eldon Square under the pretext of some fatuous scheme Gerry was supposed to have for starting a business. But no one could ever find out what the business was-nor did they particularly care.
Thus this attempt at rifling his rooms was much more sinister than seemed at first sight. To Gerry it conveyed the obvious fact that someone had known his real business here for some time. They also were determined to find out more about him-and how much he knew. It was someone, then, who feared himfeared him so much that they had tried to take his life in that fiendish way. Yes-he was thinking rapidly now-there was an obvious connection between the attempt on his life in the train and this pilfering of his notepaper. The same brain was behind them both !
Suddenly his arm gave a little twinge ; and more out of curiosity than anything else, he rolled back his sleeve. There, to his intense disgust, was the tiny red mark of a pin-prick. The realisation that he had been drugged came at once.-Drugged by a hypodermic needle as he lay asleep in his berth. Evidently his
