CHAPTER XXI - THE COMMANDER DISAPPEARS

man lately-how he was gradually losing the air of light-hearted gaiety which had always been one of his lovable characteristics. But how was Brewer to know of the canker that gnawed at Gerry's heart . . . ?
However, the present was no time for that sort of thing. They had work to do !
Gerry was extremely surprised and alarmed at the disappearance of the Commander, and intensely puzzled as to how he had got away without being seen. He and Brewer considered the matter from all sorts of angles, till at last they were forced to give up in despair. They had tried all the walls for secret doors, without success ; they had sought in vain for ways into the next-door houses ; they had called on their next-door neighbours without result-except that they annoyed Mr. Durkheim very much. Now they had to admit defeat.
" Let's have a look in these drawers," said Gerry at last. " We have a search-warrant, you know."
He felt very mean, taking advantage of the Commander like this. It did not seem quite right. He had no idea, either, what he was looking for ! Then, all at once, he remembered the slip Molly had told him about. ... " The third drawer down," she had said. He opened the drawer and found the slip. He unfolded it and looked at it curiously. There was something rather unusual about it.
" Look at this, Brewer," he said, handing it over. " Tell me what there is about that typing that seems different from the usual sort ?"
Brewer looked at it for a moment.
" It's the capitals, I think, sir," he said at last. " They don't look quite right to me."
" Why, of course," said Gerry, taking the slip from him again. " They are of foreign shape. German, I should say. Did you know there was a slight difference ? "
