the car standing by the curb as this one did ? Only a sudden swerve could possibly cause such an accident. The man must have either been drunk or asleep-or had done it deliberately. The more he thought of it, the more he inclined to his first suspicion. This was the work of the Master again !
And the policeman ? Where was he ?
Gerry passed into the house. He had seen all there was to be seen outside.
A sergeant had already arrived from the local station, and he greeted Gerry politely enough, though it was easy to see he did not care to have him there.
" Where is the officer who found the body," Gerry asked. " He timed his arrival well, didn't he ?"
" Yes," answered the Sergeant. " It's lucky he was on the spot. He saved the chauffeur's life. He was bleeding to death. He has gone with him to the hospital."
" What had he to say ?" asked Gerry.

Gerry looked quickly at him.

The Sergeant looked very annoyed.
" I cannot have you interfering like this, sir," he said. " You have no official right to be here. I'll only get into trouble when they hear at H.Q."
" Don't worry about that, Sergeant," said Gerry. " I'll see it is put all right. But you see Sir Robert

" Foul play," repeated the other in amazement.
" Why the policeman saw it all."
" We'll soon see," said Gerry, and went to the telephone which was in the next room.
" Well, sir," said the Sergeant, when he came back a few minutes later. " Did they get there safely ?"
" The chauffeur did," answered Gerry sternly.
" But there was no policeman."
And the Sergeant had to whistle for any more information.
