CHAPTER XIX - THE EMPEROR MAKES A SUGGESTION

" And now," he said, stilling the horror that the remark suggested, " let me hear something more about those other astounding adventures of yours. You say the girl is attractive ? " He leered rather horribly as he said this.
" Don't be a fool," said the Grand Duke rudely. No other human being in the world had ever dared treat this autocrat the way he did. But then, there were several reasons for that . . . !
Later in the day, Ferdinand might have been seen opening a small door set in the wall of a dull grey building. It was quite an ordinary-looking door and was mistaken for a coal-chute flap by all who ever bothered to notice it. It opened from a very quiet alleyway where hardly anyone ever came. Once inside this strange door, he was standing in a rich thickcarpeted corridor. Making the door secure behind him, he pressed a switch and revealed the fact that it was a long narrow passage, without windows.
All the way along the walls, every here and there, about the height of a man's eyes, were holes eight inches square covered with hair-like mesh. Below these were switches with small printed indicators. These were part of an intricate system of spying, which had been installed at the time construction of the place was in hand. It enabled a strict eye to be kept on every part of the enormous building. The Duke never Paused; he was in a hurry, for he had a lot to do. After quite a long walk, he stopped and pressed a button and in a moment was in his own sanctumthe very innermost office of the Imperial Secret Police !
