THE MAN THEY COULDN'T ARREST

Lyall said, " Thank you, my dear," and went into the study.
A minute later, he sat with white face and palsied fingers staring in horrified fascination at the faintly pink slip on his knees. Never in all his life had he been so thankful for the utter privacy he found just then in his own den. He knew that terror was graven in his face, knew that such a shock of fright had gripped his soul that nothing he could have done would have disguised it.
jFor that flimsy, coming to him out of the unknown like the malignant sign of some secret society, put the fear of helplessness into his soul. It savoured of black magic-there was some horrible u-ju working its inexplicable mysteries upon him. Barely an hour had elapsed since he left that locked room in Notting Hill, yet already, and awaiting his arrival, was a grim congratulation on the decision he had made in that room.
Then the full, sinister horror of it rushed upon him and the room swayed around him.
He gasped and pitched over on the floor, the telegram clutched helplessly in his outflung hand.
Mercia, halfway through a rippling medley of sharps and naturals, stopped with a jerk, her white fingers poised daintily above the keys.
" What was that ?" she said, in a puzzled voice to herself. What had seemed just like an unmistakable bump had just sounded in the next room.
