The crouching shadow on the pave ment remained motionless for one brief minute then once again became a part of the box hedge skirling Wu Tsang's lawn. His vigil had lasted some fifteen minutes when his attention was caught by a flaring light in a small oval window in the house he was watching, which, from its position, was evidently on a stair landing. In the illumination the watcher caught a full view of "Wu's face; the China- j m'an's expression of concentrated evil as Hie glanced this way and that up the de5erted avenue, caused the watcher to :atch his breath and cross himself. The light went out as sud denly as it had sprung into exist ence.

The newcomer glided rather than walked up the approach to the house; his ring at the bell was -answered instantly and from the light which streamed through the opened front door, the concealed watcher caught a full view of the Mand?rin's costume and Wu. smiling and bland, stepped across the threshold of his house, and the door was closed be hind him by the obsequious Oriental servant The watcher's forehead was damp with perspiration.

Mrs. Thayer groped herway across the pitch dark cellar. Tho- air was stale, but she was grateful for the warm 'atmo sphere which prevailed as she was chilled to the bone. Her wet cloak encumbered her movements and she paused to cast it aside just before she reached the spiral staircase leading to the turreted rooms She mounted the stairs until she judged she had reached the second ledroom floor, and paused to take breadth before making the turn to the next platform; the stairway vas treacherously steep, and she had to move with caution.

Apparently his absorption in her blunted .him to all elBe. or wa's It Fuller coming to his assistance? Mrs. Thayer shivered, then straight ened up. "Come." she said. "I'll get the tri angle you want. It's concealed in the Dutch Room." Snydor eyed her thoughtfully. "No treachery," he snarled. "Keep straight ahead." Upward Mrs. Thayer led him, paus ing every little while to listen for the following footsteps. Were they gaining had they stopped altogeth er? Her norves were cracking under the strain, but the scream she felt coming was stifled as, turning a lastf corner in the spiral staircase, their progress was blocked by a Dutch door, the lower half only of which was closed. Inside the lighted room Mrs. Thayer made out Madeline Con nor stretched on a sofa, apparently asleep, and on a chair by her night light reposed the fateful red triangle. Mrs. Thayer heard Snyder's sud den intake of breadth, then she was thrust to. one side and, slipping his hand over the Dutch door, he unbolt ed the lower half and stole forward. Nearer and nearer he approached the sleeping girl and Mrs. Thayer watched his eery movement in breathless fascination. He had al most reached his goal when a door in the further end of the room opened and Wu glided in. It required all Snyder's dexterity to slip unseen un der the rolling back of the sofa be fore the. Chinaman reached the cen ter of the room. There he paused on perceiving, that the girl he took to be asleep was quietly regarding him "So you have come back," Made- i line's low voice held no quiver of fear as she sat up on the sofa. How many hours had passed since her last violent scene with Wu he did not "";. more i too utterly exhausted to do more than throw herself fully dressed on the sofa when finally rid of his obnoxious presence, she had slept heavily. Upon awaking she had lain still trying to piece out the events which had transpired before she again became his captive. She recalled en tering a taxicab the rest was blank. "Your mission in useless," she add ed, as the Chinaman vouchsafed no remark. "I will not give you the se cret of the triangle." The oblique black eyes stared at her steadfastly; there was no change in the parchment-like face, but as they regarded each other Madeline became conscious of a nameless ter ror. Would the man never speak? Ey a violent "effort of her will Madeline dropped her eyes before his hypnotic jraze and in so. doing caught sight of .the triangle lying on the chair under her night light A cry escaped her She had left her triangle locked in the safe of .the Bureau of Standards!

What the Police Say They Would Do. (Continued from Page Thirteen.) story began, many inquiries as to why we have not called in the Po lice Department Supposing that Wu Tsang whe lms received this chart from the mouth of Buddha were a real per son, and supposing ihat all these characters and incidents were true, how would you, Major Pullman, treat the case? Would the Police Department arrest Wu Tsang? The girl Madeline has had to leap out of a window, eleven stories high. and has had to do other things be . cause of Wu Tsang's persecutions. Would you come out and arrest this Chinese, or would you wait until you had something tangible? Would you wait until you really had something big, or would you go after him right away. MAJOR PULLMAN, Br AL: That would depend on how valuable the thing he was after was. We would talk It over with Madeline first and. find out the value of the chart , which he had stolen from her. So far as taking any action is con cerned, we could not do anything until we were advised by Madeline as to just exactly what the China man's crlmewas. Why ha not the girl reported the theft to the Police Department up to this time? DONOHUE: Because the parties In terested did not want to Inject the Police Department in the story. MAJOR PULLMAN: We would try to find out. one way or another, juit exactly the best way to go after the Chinaman. Sometimes making an arrest Is the least desirable way. There are other ways of getting what we want. We must look for connections, for the motive, etc. DONOHUE: Then you wouldn't come in and make an arrest right away? In other words, you would have to KNOW what you were arresting him for. You would wait long enough to get a line on the thing and see if there was anything REALLY to it? Inspector Bur lingame, you have had experience with Chinese crime recently. How would you handle Wu Tsang? BURLINGAME AND GRANT: The whole thing goes right back to your heart-to-heart talk with Madeline as to Just what has happened, what has taken place. Start your in vestigation with her. Find out why they are trying to steal this paper from her, what the object is and what complaint, if any, she has to make. The information you get from her would govern police action toward the Chinamen. DONOHUE: But would you hare the Chinaman under surveillance all ihc time? ' GRANT : Yes. BURLINGAME: No man could come into this city and persecute a girl, as this girl has been persecuted, and get away with it. As to just how he would trap him. in the event that he was perse cuting this girl, would depend on the manner of Chinaman he was. We would have to learn definitely just what he did before we could "pinch" him. Everything would de pend on Madeline's complaint. BURLINGAME: (In answer to Dono hue's question) : Well, if she made no complaint we would have to protect her anyhow if we knew that she wa being persecuted. (Comment from Major Pullman) It we knew that any girl had been persecuted to the extent that Made line has been persecuted in these twenty-eight chapters of ''Camou flage" and didn't report it to the Police Department, we would turn her over to Dr. White. This interview, "boiled down" as it is, will give all contestants who will write the thirtieth chapter of "Camouflaged" a definite chapter of attitude of the police departments the world over, were they called upon to take a hand in straightening out anything, which on its face would not stand the acid test of being open and aboveboard THEY WOULD WAIT until they were sure they were right, and then like Davy Crockett, they would go full steam ahead, arrest the conspira tors and if a crime had been com mitted, arrest the guilty parties and see to it that every tangible element of mystery had been definitely eet tied. I This may be good material for our i readers, but it is understood of ! course that the wrltera of the Thir tieth Chapter need pay no heed to this angle -it is ."imply presented for our guidance, in the event you care to make use of it.
