THE MAN THEY COULDN'T ARREST

She ran down the stairs to it, took up the receiver, and breathed a nervous little "Yes?"
" That you, lady?" It was the same voice, apprehensive now beyond all doubt.
" Yes, Miss Lyall speaking. You-are-the Notting Hill gentleman?"
" That's me, miss. Well, what's the news? Cough it up quickly. Mr. Lyall wasn't in his room, was he?"
" N-no, he wasn't." Mercia scarcely knew how she got the words out.
" And he hadn't been to bed all night?"
" No-he-he must have gone out after-after we had all gone to bed. " Then she burst out desperately :" Oh, won't you please tell me what all this mystery is about? There is something dreadful, something horrible, behind all this secrecy. Who are you ? Why do you ring up at this hour of the morning ? Why do you make all these extraordinary inquiries as to my father's whereabouts ? What have his movements to do with you ? Please-please tell me something. Can't you see I'm nearly distracted ?" The words came tumbling out of her mouth, almost chasing one another off her lips in her anxiety to hold her mysterious inquisitor to the telephone. She had a vague horror that, having discovered all he wanted to, he might hang up his receiver and leave her stranded, struggling for light like a gaffed fish struggles for water.
