THE MAN THEY COULDN'T ARREST

had been mentally circling round each other like a couple of dogs spoiling for a fight. Tansy's subterfuge was too transparent for words. The only thing that puzzled Dain was the reason for it. He could not make out what was behind it. Tansy was hardly the man to spring a job on his own account.
" Well, it's enough, ain't it, guv'nor ?" The jeweller's whine had increased : it was more plaintive than ever. To Dain's critical ears it also sounded a hundred times more forced. It was false, unreal. And there was an atmosphere creeping up in the room that was wholly at variance with the situation. Tansy was not begging favours. He was laying out the ground for action. It was becoming more and more obvious with every second that passed. The only thing that was holding him in check was the sight of that unknown instrument of steel and horn in Dain's right hand.
" Shove that blinking gun away, guv'nor. It's givin' me the creeps," he snivelled.
" It isn't a gun," said Dain quietly. " It's something much more impressivc and quite as effective. Won't you sit down ? You look dreadfully uncomfortable standing there twiddling your hat. "
The jeweller eyed the chair sourly out of the corner of his eyes. There was something rat-like about the way those eyes slid round.
" No-I-I'd rather stand, if you don't mind, guv'nor," he said. He had begun to go a trifle white round the mouth.
