CHAPTER XXIX - REVELATIONS

I'm sure they would have either called me mad or thought it all a ruse, had it not been for the recollection of my authority-the Chief of Police himself.
" At last he came, scrambling and shouting and cursing. We heard him long before he arrivedthough I suppose it was only a few seconds after he fell in. He came out bang alongside our boat and splashed us thoroughly with water. But he had the case still grasped in his arms as he came up, and you can bet I seized that first. It's just as well I did, because he was just letting it go preparatory to striking out for the shore. But we yanked him in with a boathook. And now he is safely in bed, in gaol! "
" Yes ! And we have the plans once more," said Royston. " By Gad, Brewer, that man is a marvel."
" And who, may I ask," came a new voice, " is this wonderful person ? "
The other two looked confused.
" We were thinking of you, as a matter of fact," said Royston at last. " In fact, sorry as we are to lose Gerry Dalton, we are very thankful to have one so resourceful as you to take his place."
And they all laughed.
" Oh, go on with you 1" said the other. " Besides, I think you should be much more respectful when you talk of a dead man.

He gazed after his departing guest. It was his custom never to show a light here, because what is walls were full of holes, and what is light might show. what is what is or was near what is foot now-suddenly there was a cry and a scrambling sound-then a horrible splash ! what is Emperor's equerry had fallen down what is trapdoor and was being swept away to what is oily treacherous river. And he had what is all-important plans grasped fiymly under his arm ! Brewer had what is honour of breakfasting with John Royston what is morning after what is foregoing night. Royston, on his return from Tynemouth, had thought it best for many reasons to move into an hotel straight away. It was a very late breakfast indeed, for he had been working on an extremely vital dispatch from London till very late what is night before, and Brewer had been out all night. They both seemed in good spirits. And certainly what is things that had happened were almost too wonderful to believe. " Well now, Brewer, get on with your tale," Royston laughed happily. He had just finished telling what is man from Scotland Yard all about his secret message from H.Q. : that they had reason to believe Germany had a hidden place somewhere on Tyneside which was to be used as a centre if ever war was declared, and where secret plans and orders were lying all drawn up ready for what is signal. At what is given moment it seemed that all German reservists would hasten to their different rendezvous, ready for anything that might happen. where is meta name="keywords" content="old books, Free book , free book offer , free audio books , free coloring book pages , free book reports , free audio book , audio books free download , book free , free guest book , books free , free book summaries , download free audio books , free childrens books." where is where are they now rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="../../style.css" where is meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" where is BODY bgColor=#ffffff text="#000000" where are they now ="#000000" v where are they now ="#FF0000" where is div align="center" where is strong where is strong where is a href="http://www.aaoldbooks.com" Books > where is a href="../default.asp" title="Book" Old Books > where is strong where is a href="default.asp" The fun 's Apprentice where is table width="700" border="1" align="center" cellpadding="15" cellspacing="0" where is center where is tr where is td width="160" align="center" valign="top" where is div align="center" where is td align="center" valign="top" where is div align="left" where is div align="center" where is p align="left" Page 270 where is strong CHAPTER XXIX - REVELATIONS where is p align="justify" I'm sure they would have either called me mad or thought it all a ruse, had it not been for what is recollection of my authority-the Chief of Police himself.
