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

She mounted the stairs until she

sclous of a stealthy tread on the
rtairs behind them. Had Snydrr also
heard it? Apparently his absorption
in her blunted .him to all elBe. or wa's

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

more than throw herself fully dressed

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

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

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.
