THE MAN THEY COULDN'T ARREST

One of them said: "Odd! You call it odd ! Why, burn my eyes, it's uncanny ! That's the thirty-fourth. The thirty-fourth, mind you, in less than nine months. It's-it's-bah ! we'll be wakin' up one morning and finding it's all a dream we've been having."
" A dream, eh ?" said the other. "With fiftyseven of the toughest birds in London under lock and key. A dream, eh ? with four men walking about London as large as life who, if it hadn't been for the Ghost, would have been corpses by nowmurdered, as surely as they know it themselves. It's not much use talking about dreams, Shaughnessy, when we've collared 'em in rows, caught 'em with the goods on, men we've been itching to get our claws on for years. Dreams ! It's not dreams, Mick-nightmares, if you like. He's making us the laughing stock of every police organisation in the world. I'm half expecting my own shadow to turn round and grin at me."
Shaughnessy's voice cut back with its faint touch of the Irish brogue and its softening leaven of native humour.
" Aw ! don't get mad. Long life to the Ghost, says I. I'm no stickler for personal pride-and he keeps landin' the fish, anyways. I think you're all wrong. Why try to track him down? He's better than the Flying Squads, better than a whole charge-room full of squealers. Delbury, me lad
