CHAPTER XVI. Duncombe tells Miss
Fielding the story of the Poyntons to
test her. but she does not appear to be
affected by it.
IT seemed to Duncombe that time
stood still. Andrew's face, whol
ly disfigured by the hideous dark
spectacles, unrecognizable, threat
ening, was within a few inches of his
own. lie felt his hot breath upon his
cheek. For n moment there stole
through his ' numbed senses fear of
-more terrible things. And then the
grip which held him relaxed. Andrew
stood away gasping. Therrisis was
"You lied to me. George. VThy :"
Duncombe did not answer. He could
not. It was bs though his body had
been emptied of all breath.
"You rucaut to keep the contents of
that telegram a secret from me. Why?
Was I right, after all? Read me that
telegram, George. Read it to me truth-1
The telegram is from Spencer,"
Duncombe said. "He is coming here."
"Here? Is he giving up the search?
Has he failed, then?"
"He does not say." Duncombe an
swered. "He says simply that he is
coinlns: here. He has wired for a rno-
tor to meet him at Lynn. He may be
A discordant laugh broke from Tel
"What about your , Miss Fielding
now? he exclaimed. "Why do you
suppose that he is leaving Taris and
-coming here? I was right. I knew
that I was right.
Duncombe stood up. His expanse of
shirt front was crumpled and battered.
His white tie was hanging down in
' "Listen. Andrew!" he exclaimed. "1
am speaking of the girl by whose side
I sat tonight at dinner, who calls her
self Miss Fielding, who has In plain
words denied that she knows anything
of Phyllis Poynton. I want you to un
derstand this. - Whatever she may
choose to call herself that shall be her
name. I will not have her questioned
''or bullied or watched. If Spencer
comes here to do either, I have finished
with him. I elect myself her protector.
I will stand between her and all sus
picion of evil things.

Fielding I have nothing to do. Yet

1 Tirtve watched' her listening to the
wind, bendiug over the flowers in her
garden. I have walked with her over
the moor when the twilight fell nnd
the mists rose. We have seen the
kindling of the stars, and we have
seen the moou grow pale and the east
ern sky ablaze. I have taught her
where to look for the beautiful things
of life. She has belonged to me In all
ways save one. I am a poor, helpless
creature now. George, but by the gods,'
I will let no one rob me of my one
holy compensation. She Is the girl 1
love, the better part of myself."
"Phyllis Poynton may be all these,
things to you." Duncombe answered.
"I do not know her. I do not recog
nize her. Find her if you can. Make
of her what you will. All that I ask
of you Is that you divest your mind
of these senseless suspicions. Seek
rhyllis Poynton where you will, but
leave alone the woman whom I love.
I will not have her troubled or an
noyed by needless Importunities. She
says she is Miss Fielding. Then she
is Miss Fielding. ' It is enough for me.
It must be enough for you!"
"And what about Spencer?" Telham
"Spencer in this matter Is my serv
ant." Dunconibe answered. ''If his
search for Phyllis Poynton entails his
annoying Miss Fielding, then he is dis
missed. I will have no more to do with
"I have heard of this man Spencer."
Andrew answered. "If you think that
he is the sort of creature whom you
can order about like that, I fancy that
you are mistaken. You may try to
call him off. If yon like, but you won't
succeed. He is searching for I'hylli
Foyntou. and he is coming here. I be
lieve that he will find her."
The windows were wide open, and
both men suddenly turned ..round.
There was no mistaking the sound
which came to them from the road
outside the regular throb and beat of
a perfectly balanced engine. Then
they heard a man's voice, cool anj

The little iron gate opened and clos

coat and carrying a smnll bag entered.
He saw Duncombe standing at the
ipen window and waved his hand. As
ie approached his boyish face lit up
Sato a smile.
"What luck to find you up1." ho ex
claimed. "You got my telpgram?"
"An hour ago," Duncombe answered.
"This Is my friend. Mr. Audrew Pel

"what a pity! I came hero to -ask

ed. "We won't bother you tonight.
I'll show you a room as soon as you've
had a cigarette. Fair crossing?."
"No idea," Spencer, answered. "I

Interrupted firmly. "I'm dead sleepy,
and I couldn't guarantee to tell the
truth. And when tomorrow comes
I'll be frank with you I've very little
to say. Pardon me, but where does
Mr. Pelham come in In this matter?"
"Pelham," Duncombe said slowly.
"was a neighbor of Miss Poynton's In
Devonshire. It was through him that
I first went to Paris to search for her.'
Spencer nodded. -
"Glad to meet him, then, - he re
marked. "There are a few questions I
shall be glad to ask him in the morn
"There Is one," Pelham said, "which
you must answer now.
Spencer raised his eyebrows. lie
was standing with his back to them
now, helping himself to sandwiches
from a dish upon the sideboard.
"By Jove, your cook does understand
these things," he remarked, with his
mouth full. "No idea I was so hungry.
What was that, Mr. Pelham? A ques
tlon which must be answered now?"
"Yea. You telegraphed to Duncombe
to know the names of Lord Runton's
guests, and now you have come here
Spencer helped himself to another
sandwich. ; '
"I came here,' he said, "because I
didn't seem to be getting on in Paris.
It struck me that the clew to Miss
Poynton's disappearance, might, after
all, be on this side of the channel."
Pelham guided himself by the table
to tbe sideboard. He stood close to
"Mr. Spencer," he said, "I am almost
blind, and I cannot see your, face, but
I want you to tell me the truth. I ex
pect It from you."
'My dear fellow," Spencer answered.
Tm awfully sorry for you. of course,
but I really dou't.aee wliT IIiquUI an-
swer your questions at all' truthfully
or untruthfully." I have-been making a
few Inquiries for my friend Duncombe.
At present I regret to say that I have
been unsuccessful. In their' present
crude state I should prefer keeping my
discoveries, such as they are, to my
. Pelham struck the sideboard with bis
clinched fist so that all the glasses rat
tled upon the tray. His face was dark
with passion. - v ,r ' ' '
"I will not be ignored In this mat
ter," he declared.' "Phyllis Poynton
and her brother are nothing to Dun
combe. He acted only for me. He
cannot deny It Ask him for yourself."
''I do not need to ask him," Spencer
answered. "I am perfectly well aware
of the circumstances of the case. All
the same, I go about my business my
own way. I am not ready to answer
questions from you or anybody else."
"You shall tell me this at least," Pel
ham declared. "You Bhall tell me why
you telegraphed here for the names of
Lord Runton's house party." ,
"Simplest thing in the world," Spen
cer answered, relinquishing his attack
upon the sandwiches and lighting n
cigarette. "I did it to oblige a friend
who writes society notes for the New
York Herald." . '
' Duncombe gave vent to a little ex
clamation of triumph. Telham for the
moment was speechless.
"Awfully sorry If I misled you lu
any way," Spencer continued. "I nev
er imagined your connecting ray re
quest with tho disappearance of Phyl
lis Poynton. Why should I?".
"The fact is," Duncombe Interposed,
"there Is a girl staying at Runton
House whose voice Pelham derlares is
exactly like Phyllis Poynton's ' and
whose general appearance, I will ad
mlt, is somewhat similar to the photo
graph I showed you. It Is a coinel
dence, of course, but beyond that it is
absurd to go. This young lady is a
Miss Fielding. She Is there with her
father, and they are Invited guests,
with all the proper credentials."
"I suppose It Is because I am not a
lady's inan," he said carelessly, "but
I must admit that all girls' voices
sound pretty much alike to me."
"I wish to heaven thai I could see
your ' face!" relhain exclaimed. "I
should know then whether vou were
telling me the truth."
"The weak, point about my tempo
rary profession Is," Spencer remarked
thoughtfully, "that It enables even
strangers to iusult one with impunity."
"If I have misjudged you," Pelham
6ald, with some dignity, "I am sorry.
I am to understand, then, that you
have no news whatever W give us
about the disappearance of Phyllis
Poynton aud her brother?"
Not a scrap," Spencer answered.
I will wish you both good night.
then," Pelham said. "No, don't trou
ble. George. I can find my way quite
well by myself."
He disappeared, and Duncombe drew
a little sigh of relief.
"Excitable person,' youf friend !"
"Very! I am frightened to death
that he will make an ass of himself
before Miss Fielding. If he hears her
apeak he loses his head."
"Nice girl?" Spencer asked,

"What sort of a fellow's the father?"
"Very quiet. I've scarcely spoken t
him. They're Americans. Friends of
Lord Runton's brother out in New
York. Ever heard of them?"
"Yes, a few times."
"You seem interested.
"I am very."
Duncombe turned suddenly white,
"What do you mean?" he asked.
