It was made of nickel-a queer, deadly looking thing that looked like the skeleton of a revolver. He turned it about in his hand. It glittered wickedly in the occasional bright light of passing lamps. There was a griphandle, a small cylindrical chamber, and a tiny barrel no thicker than a fountain-pen and less than four inches long.
The instrument was worked on the compressed spring principle ; a very powerful spring, for Lazard had to exert every ounce of strength in his muscles to get it back. Three times the little trigger kicked as he strained the spring back, and then there came the metallic sound of a pawl snapping into place, and the spring was locked.
He deftly charged the weapon with three small needles, which he took from a little gold ornament on his watch-fob. The needles were extremely thin, and about three-quarters of an inch long. They were wet when he lifted them from the little trinket, and he exercised scrupulous care in the way he handled them. He did not touch them with his fingers, but fed them into the tube with a pair of tweezers.
