CHAPTER XVIII - THE MASTER'S LAIR

" But how did they get into the sea ?" demanded Gerry.
" Oh ! She was showing them to someone," said the Colonel.
" Yes ! But if she were showing them to someone, the lid would be off the box. And why should she be so near the rail that they should fall into the sea ? And why was she showing her ear-rings to anyone at that time of night ? "
The Colonel looked rather disappointed that his suggestion had been so ruthlessly disposed of.
" Well, my dear fellow," he said, " that's the only explanation I can think of."
` There is another," said Gerry eagerly. " I don't yet know what that explanation is, but I'm going to find out."
It was quite clear that the ear-rings, wrapped so carefully in a handkerchief and placed in this air-tight box, meant something. And all they could mean to Gerry's trained mind was that Molly was in trouble, and had tried to get a message home. But (he was reasoning it out now) if she had to adopt such a method of sending word as this, then she must be under restraint-a prisoner ! Still, people could not be carried off prisoners on public steamers like that. What was the explanation ?
" Any clue ?" asked the Colonel, who had been watching his face.
Gerry shook his head. The explanation was quite beyond him for the moment, and shortly afterwards he bade his friend good-bye.
He returned to Newcastle to find Brewer waiting for him at Eldon Square.
" Bernotte's gone," said Brewer as soon as they Met.
" Gone ?" gasped Gerry. " How do you mean gone ' ? "
