" Scries A, B, C, D, E and F Have Been CALLED FOR PAYMENT on or before December 15, 1922 (within four months) Having- learned from our customers that many were unaware that their bonds were posted for redemption, we are inserting this ad. to acquaint you with the facts and to offer our advice. '' ' '" - ' ' As a holder of bonds of the above series, you have four options. You may: . r Surrender your bonds now at par and interest. - J r Surrender your bonds at any time with instructions to remit to you on December 15th, at par and interest. 1 Hold your bonds until December 15th for payment at par and interest. SELL YOUR BONDS NOW ON THE MARKET (present price about $100.30 and interest). - In our judgment it is improbable that these bonds will be quoted, between now and De cember 15th, substantially in excess of the present market, nor can we see any advantage in holding them until the call date. On the contrary, we believe that security prices will, in all probability, be higher prior to December" 15th than now, and that the longer you wait the more you will be obliged to pay for the security you reinvest your funds in. Our serious advice is, therefore, DISPOSE OF YOUR LIBERTY BONDS NOW WHILE YOU CAN OBTAIN A PREMIUM; REINVEST THE PROCEEDS AT ONCE BEFORE THE FALL RISE IN PRICES.

What I was chiefly concerned about was to establish as completely as possible the Identity of Robert. For this reason I suggested to Mark that, when dressed, he should go out by the secret passage to the bowling green, and come back by the drive, taking care to enter Into conversa tion with the lodge-keeper. "In this way I would have two more witnesses of Robert's arrival first the lodge-keeper, and secondly one of the gardeners whom I would have working on the front lawn Mark, of course, was willing enough. He could practice his Australian ac cent on the lodge-keeper. It was really amusing to see how readily.he fell into every suggesUon which I made. Never was a killing more carefully planned by Its victim. "He changed into Robert's clothes in the office bedroom. This was the safest way for both of us. When he was ready, he called me in, and I Inspected him. It was extraordinary how well he looked the part. I sup pose that the signs of b'.s dissipa tion had already marked themselves on his face, but had been concealed hitherto by his mustache and beard; for now that he was clean-shaven they lay open to the world from which we had so carefully bidden them, and he was Indeed the wastrel which he was pretending to be. 'Wonderf ul,' I said to myself Nobody could possibly guess. I peered Into the hall. It was empty. We hurried across to the library; he got Into the passage and made off. I went back to the bed room, collected all his discarded clothes, did them up In a bundle and returned with them to the passage. Then I sat down ia the hall and waited. "You heard the e'-'-ience ot Stevens, the maid. As co m as she was on her way to the Temple In search of Mark, I stepped into the office. My handwas In my side- pocket, and In my hand was the re volver. "He began at once in his character of Robert some rigmarole about working his passage over from Aus tralia; a little private performance for my edification. Then in his natural voice, gloaUng over his well planned retaliation on Miss Norris. he burst out. 'It's my turn now. You wait. It was- this which- Elsie heard. She had no business to be there and she might have ruined everything, but as it turned out it was the lucki est thing which could have hap pened. For it was the one piece of evidence which I wanted; evidence, other than my own, that Mark and Robert were in the room together. "I said nothing. I was not going to take the risk of being heard to speak in that room. I just smiled at the poor little fool, and took out my revolver, and shot him. Then went back into the library and waited Just as I said In my evi dence. "Can you imagine, Mr. Gilling- ham, the shock which your sudden appearance gave me? Can you imagine the feelings of a murderer who has (as he thinks) planned for every possibility, and is then men fronted suddenly with an utterly new problem? What difference would your coming make? I didn't know. Perhaps none; perhaps alL And I had forgotten to open the win dow! "I dont know whether yoa will think my plan for killing Mark a clever one. Perhaps not. But if do deserve any praise in the matter. I think I deserve it for the way pulled myself together in the face of the unexpected catastropho of your arrival. Yes, I got a window open, Mr. Gilllngham, under your very nose; the right window too, you were kind enough to say. And the keys yes, that was clever of you, but I think I. was cleverer. "I deceived you over the keys, Mr. Gillingham, as I learnt when I took the liberty of listening to a con versation on the bowling-green be tween you and your friend Beverley. Where was I? Ah, you must have a look for that secret passage, Mr. Gillingham. "But what am I saying? Did I deceive you at all? You have found cut the secret that Robert was Mark and that is all that matters. How have you found out? I shall never know now. Where did I go wrong? Perhaps you have been de ceiving me all the time. Perhaps you knew atout the keys, about the window, even about the secret pas sage. You are a clever man, Mr, Gillingham. "I had Mark s clothes on my "I TOOK OUT AND SHOT HIM.' MY REVOLVER hands. I might have left them In the passage, but the secret of the passage was now out. Miss Norris knew it. That" was the weak point of my plan, perhaps, that Miss Nor ris had to know it. So I hid them In the pond, the inspector having oblig Ingly dragged It for me. first. A couple of keys joined them, but kept the revolver. Fortunate, wasn't it, Mr. Gillingham? "Goodby, Mr. Gillingham. I'm sorry that your stay with us was not of a pleasanter nature, but you understand the difflculUes in which I was placed. Don't let Bill think too badly of me. He Is a good fel low; look after him. He will be sur prised. The young are always sur prised. And thank you for letting me end my own way. I expect you did sympathize a little, you know, We might have been friends in an other world you and I, and I and she. Tell her what you like. Every thing or nothing. You will know what is best. Goodby, Mr. Gilling ham. "MATTHEW CAYX.EY. "I am lonely tonight without Mark. That's funny, isn't it?" CHAPTER XXI GCiOOD Lordr said Bill, as he jr put down the letter. "What did you write to him? Was that last night? After I'd gone Into Stanton?" "Yes." "What did you say? That you'd discovered that Mark was Robert?" "Yes. At least I said that this morning I should probably telegraph to Mr. Cartwright of Wimpole Street, and ask him to identify the body." Bill nodded thoughtfully and went back again to the letter. "I see. And you told Cayley that you were telegraphing to Mark's dentist?" "Yes. And then of course it was all up for him. Once we knew that Robert was Mark we knew every thing." "How did you know?" Antony got up from the breakfast table and began to fill his pipe. "Well, let's see if I can go through my own mind again, and tell you how I guessed it. First of all, the clothes." "Yes?" "To Cayley the clothes seemed an enormously important clue. I felt certain that. In that case, the ab sence of the collar was unintentional. In collecting the clothes he had overlooked the collar. Why?" It was the one In the linen- basket?" Yes. It seemed probable. Why had Cayley put it there? The ob vious answer was that he hadn't. Mark had put It there." Go on," said Bill eagerly. 'Well, why had Mark changed down there Instead of in his bed room? The only answer was that the fact of his changing had to be kept secret. When did he change? The only possible time was between lunch (when he would be seen by the servants) and the. moment of Robert's arrival. And when did Cay ley collect the clothes in a bundle? Again, the only answer was 'Before Robert's arrival. So another x was wanted to fit those three condi tions." "And the answer was that a mur der was intended, even before Robert arrived?" "Yes. Well now, it wasn't possible a murder could be intended without any more -preparation than the changing into a different suit in which to escape. The thing was too childish. Also, if Robert was to be murdered, why go out of the way to announce his existence to you all? I began to feel now that Robert was an incident only; that the plot was a plot of Cayley's against Mark, either to get him to kill his brother, or to get his brother to kill him and that for some inexplicable rea son Mark seemed to be lending him self to the plot." He was silent for a little, and then said, almost to himself, "I had seen the empty brandy bottles in that cupboard." You never said anything about them," complained Bill. "I only saw them afterward. I was looking for the collar, you re member. They came back to me afterward; I " knew how Cayley would feel about it. a a Poor devil!" "Go on," said BilL " " "' : "Well, then, we had the Inquest, and of course I noticed the curious fact that Robert had asked his way at the second ledge and not at the first. So I talked to Amos and Par sons. That made it more curious. Amos told me that Robert had gone out of his way to speak to him. "Parsons told me that his wife was out in their little garden at the first lodge all the afternoon, and was certain that Robert had never come past it. He also told me that Cay ley had put him on to a Job on the front lawn that afternoon. So I had another guess. Robert had used the secret passage the passage whieh comes out into the park be tween the first and second lodges. Robert, then, had been in the house; it was a put-up Job between Robert and Cayley, But how could Robert be there without Mark knowing? Obviously, Mark knew too. What did it all mean?" "When was this?" interrupted Bill, "Just after the inquest after you'd seen Amos and Parsons, of course?" "Yes. I got up and left them, and came to look for j'ou. I'd got back to the clothes then. Why did Mark change his clothes so secretly? Dis guise? But then , what about his face? That was much more im portant than clothes. His face, his beard he'd have to shave oft his beard and then oh, idiot! I saw you looking at that poster. Mark acting, Mark made-up. Mark dis guised. Oh, priceless idiot! Mark was Robert ... Matches, please." "Yes." said Bill thoughtfully. "Yes ... But wait a moment. What about the 'Plough and Horses'?" Antony looked comically at him. "You'll never forgive me. Bill," he said. "What do you mean?" 't4'i;t-t'; Antony sighed. " ' "' "It was a fake, Watson. I wanted you out of the way. I wanted to be alone. So " he smiled and added. "Well. I knew you wanted a drink." THE END.
