Before The Blitzkrieg
(Continued From Page Eight)
he said that the lives of two men
might depend on information about
this island, or whatever it is?”
‘‘Putting two and two together,”
he answered, “I should imagine
he’s got a couple of men looking
around out there, and he’s afraid
they’re in danger.”
She looked Charles square in the
eyes.
“If that’s so, they probably are!
Perhaps they’re the ones who are
obstinate.”
“I shouldn’t be surprised!”
“Then they have my sympathy.
I shouldn’t like to be in the hands
of this gang if they’d got anything
against me. . . .and I may be, too,
some time!” She rose suddenly to
her feet. “Here, this won’t do! I’m
getting morbid! Just take me back
to the ballroom, will you? And
drop me, nicely and publicly!”
Charles Cazelton went to look for
Toni. He found her dancing, but
she flashed him a message with
her eyes that she wanted to speak
to him.
xxc V^aucu uxxi.ii oxxc Wct5 lice,
and then claimed her. They danced
for a couple of minutes, and then
she said:
“Take me and get me a drink. I
want to talk to you.”
01 course it was about Gun she
wanted to talk. Charles, listening
to what she had to say, looked
grave.
“What’s it all about?” she asked
him.
“I know nothing, Toni.”
“Liar!” she said bluntly. "You
mean you won’t tell me.”
He shook his head.
“I KNOW nothing—but I DO sus
pect something. But, of course, I
mustn’t talk.”
“Just tell me one thing. Do you
think Gun is safe?”
“Don’t be silly—we’re seldom
safe at this game. But don’t start
worrying, Toni sweet. Gun can
take care of himself. Hasn’t he
proved it, over and over again?
But now I must bolt—I have things
to do.”
And as he made his way to the
front door, he was thinking to
mm self:
“Poor old Gun! It looks to me as
though he’s up against it!”

Trent’s patent torture of “elimi
nation of amenities,” as he called
it, was certainly an ingenious one.

confinement for eleven days, and
there was little enough left to

the full value of such trifles as salt

The next morning when they
rose, they found that the water
was no longer possible.
Tommy was aghast.
“Hell, but this is getting a bit

swine’s block off, when he turns up
this morning.”
“I wouldn’t, if I were you,” Gun
advised. “He’s got the whip hand,

“Maybe he has!” growled Tom
my. “But I’ll show him I’ve got a
hard fist, even if it ain’t a mailed
one. You watch! Besides, if I don’t
do it now, I shall soon be too
damned weak to, at this rate!” 3
