THE MAN THEY COULDN'T ARREST

" Is that the truth, Miss Lyall ?"
Mercia flushed. "I am answering your questions as truthfully as I can, " she said, and there was a little chilliness in her voice and in her face. " Please remember that you are keeping me in the dark about something that vitally concerns my father, and therefore concerns me. Also that you are a policeman, and that it is not one of my usual customs to submit to cross-examination by representatives of the law."
Delbury bowed.
" You know a Mr. Valmon Dain, I think," he said, switching the line of inquiry.
" Yes. I know Mr. Dain very well."
" He is a great-er-friend of yours?"
" Certainly."
" I hope you won't think me impertinent or rude, Miss Lyall, but the common talk in the neighbourhood, both here and at Hendon, is that you and Mr. Dain were practically engaged. Is that so ?"
Mercia shook her head. " No, I don't think that is quite true," she said, with a diffident little smile. "Rather a difficult matter to discuss, isn't it? Surely it isn't vitally interesting to you, is it ?"
" I'm sorry, madam-but it happens to be as important to you as it is to me. Would you mind being a little more explicit ? Gossip is not generally far wrong in these intimate matters. And it is fairly common knowledge that you and Mr. Dain were being seen about a good deal together.''
