THE MAN THEY COULDN'T ARREST

" I'm sure I shall. But there it is-a promise is a promise."
" Can't you break it-just this once, dad?" asked Mercia.
" This," said Lyall grimly, " happens to be just the 'once' when I can't." Dain was watching him with eyes that were cold as marbles of ice. Lyall flushed perceptibly when he made his answer.
For two electric seconds the men looked hard into each other's eyes. Then Valmon Dain, with a shrug and a slight rising of the eyebrows, looked away.
He pretended a very natural regret, a regret.into which was fused just a little carelessness. He had pressed his point far enough : perhaps a little too far. If his brain hadn't been so utterly relaxed he would have realised, long before he did, that the atmosphere round Willard Lyall had suddenly become pregnant with warnings. It crackled. And beside the tinging flush that welled over Lyall's face, Dain detected the glints of resentment that flickered ominously behind his eyes.
Lyall hadn't said very much, but what he had said was uttered in such a tone of frigid finality that Dain had no need to look further than the end of his nose for the answer to the questions that were drumming in his head.
" I'm sorry," he said, standing up. " It's dreadfully late, and I won't detain you any longer. "
