THE MAN THEY COULDN'T ARREST

me. I assure you that you are in the workshop of a man who lives on brain alone, and whose safety is not dependent on the whim of mere chance. From the moment I first embarked on this campaign against such cultured law-breakers as yourself, I have been surrounding myself with an impregnable wall of safety. Do you know that you could not get out of this house after twelve o'clock either by door or window, without setting thirty-six bells into violent commotion ? And eight of them would be outside ! And there are always police in this road. You got in before midnight. You were lucky. You think I am trying to frighten you off. I am not. Shoot by all means. That gun is loaded, and I assure you it functions with amazing precision. I am simply appealing to your own common sense. Aren't you convinced ?"

Dain regarded the other coldly and critically, much as might a vivisectionist when, scalpel in hand, he looks to see if his subject is in every way ready for the experiment.
" Lyall, you're more of a fool than I took you for," he said, with just a touch of asperity. " Do you honestly think, after all I've told you, you could kill me?"
" Just by pulling at this trigger !" said Lyall grimly.
