CHAPTER XXI - THE COMMANDER DISAPPEARS

the first half of his part ; the rest was what really mattered.
Shortly before ten o'clock that night, he gave a quiet word to a young man with short-cropped hair and a fair moustache. As if by magic the whole crowd came hurrying silently into the big barn-like room situated at the back of this maze of buildings. They knew what was expected-and what they were expecting. The Master !
Hardly had they settled down, when he came. In contrast to their predecessors there was no fanatical enthusiasm or gloating madness amongst this crowd. They were all trained men-men who had experienced dangers in many parts of the world. And their concentration in this one place could only mean that something very big was going to happen. Only the poor Russian seemed excited. He sat there, with the red light of excitement and enthusiasm shining from his one good eye-a poor, demented, helpless thing !
There was not a sound as the leader entered-nor did any of them seem interested in the fact that he wore a silken hood right over his head and face-they were used to anonymity in their kind of work!
" My friends," he began, speaking in German--a tongue they all appeared to understand, " the time is drawing very near." His voice was hard and stern.
The young sailor wriggled with sheer passion in the cause of hate, and they looked at him in scorn and wonder. It was marvellous how he sensed their feelings, even though he could not understand a word they said ! Oh yes ! He should have his chance before long !
" But," went on the Chief, " there is still a little more to do. I must have the plans of the Queen Mab. I have the designs of the guns." His deep-set eyes seemed to flash in amusement-there had been a wave of interest amongst these stolid listeners. " Yes !"
