THE MAN THEY COULDN'T ARREST

" Wait! " he said to the driver; " and watch those bags of mine."
Valmon Dain, sitting motionless in his laboratory, heard two thunderous knocks on the outer door. He pushed a metal stud on the bench, and the door opened. Lazard came in. His face was dull, wooden. Without turning either to right or left, heedless of the traps he knew existed in that fearful room, he came on regardless.
Dain was sitting there, a glittering automatic pointing sheer at the spot between the Ambassador's eyes. Lazard, too, had his gun in his hand, but he was a second late. Dain's foot twitched against his chair-leg, and Lazard, in that same instant, was aware of a violent shock up his gun arm, and the revolver was wrenched out of his fingers. He looked round in wild surprise. The astonishing thing had happened without a soul coming near him -just an unseen force in the darkness, a sudden terrific tug at the steel which numbed his arm and sent the revolver whipping down to the floor as though it had been shot out of a gun.
Dain's quiet voice sounded smoothly from the chair.
" I shouldn't pick that up again if I were you, Count. You'll find it nearly red-hot ! Stand away from it-the bullets might explode at any moment. And in any case, I really wouldn't attempt to use it again-the bullets will have melted, and you will get a particularly unpleasant backfire in your face if you pull that trigger."
