CHAPTER XXXIV - THREADS AND AU REVOIR !

tip from the local police about the club. I admire those fellows tremendously. They have their buttons on, all right !

It is wonderful what you can do with an eye-shade and some red make-up, plus a spot of liquid astringent varnish to wrinkle up the skin round the 'wound.' "
Molly looked affectionately at him. She knew very well that the " make-up " was the easiest bit of a very hard and dangerous part her lover played.
" Well, I learned a great deal at that sink of iniquity in Bottle Bank-and mystified my friend Brewer here more than once."
Brewer, who had not heard the true details about Gerry's role as the young Russian and had been listening in amazement, now burst out :
" So that was how you knew about the intended burglary at Sir Robert Gill's house-and the time poor Seventy-seven was murdered."
" Yes," added Royston, " and that explains how the Emperor's equerry slid into our hands with an armful of plans, one terribly anxious night."
Gerry laughed.
" Yes," he agreed, " and lots of other things, too."
" But," expostulated Lord Tankerton. " Why did you let them go on so long ? Why didn't you round them up ? "
" That is the whole point," said his son. " We did not know what their scheme was, or who was in it. We had to wait and hope that things would clear the way. I dare say it would have been easy enough to land the fiend himself when he came some night into the club in Bottle Bank. But we should have been no wiser. You see, we were after bigger game."
" And we got it," cried Brewer joyously, " when we found the cable and tapped it."
" I must lay the credit of that on Royston," said Gerry.
