into a telephone booth. 'Make your at

"I watched him through the big win- wi

Ily veiled, hurried forth. My taxi driv

door as she rushed forward, then
closed it behind her as she entered
the taxi. She was excited; I could
hear her heavy breathing as she
stepped into the vehicle. In the corner
of the machine she saw my dark form
and stretched forth her hands to me.
"'Jim!' she cried.
"There was a clicking sound and
even in the darkness something flash
e'd. The woman gave a scream that
sounded even above the whirring of
the machine as .he felt the cold steel
of handcuffs on her wrists. I antici- .

had struck me between the eyes. It ,
dazed me, but I reached gropingly out- a

ed hands worked clumsily with the I
catch of the door. My fingers seemed c
e nerveless. Great splotches of red e
flared before my eyes. I screamed t
Then all grew black '1
"When I revived, I was still in the
rocking, hurrying taxicab, and vague- I
t ly I wondered what all had happened d
2-and what had become of the wom- t
an who had struck me. I became
aware that I was crowded far into a s
corner by a great form and that some- i
one was whistling. We passed a flar- t,
Sng street lamp. I saw next to me the =
I hulking shape of my old friend of the [
uniform, Tom Malloy. t!
"'I got hep to somethin' on th' cor- o
-er.' he said by way of explanation, a
'when I seen th' door av th' taxi open It
an' a woman jump out. Then, when I p
seen thim wrist decorations, I knowed
there was a party av some kind on. h
So I just joined in. Bless me, s'long t,
as there's a man about. 'tis a quiet lit
tie dame she is, Isn't she?' ai
This was addressed to the opposite
corner of the taxicab, where the wild tt
eyed woman sat gritting her teeth. I
saw the hands that had felled me
tight and clenched. And I was a bit
thankful that big hearted, big fisted c:
old Tom Malloy was with me. Gradu- ! cl
ally I learned all that had happened. ;t,
d Malloy had seen the woman leap from I
I- the machine and start to run away. c
Believing It was a case of attempted I
o white slavery or something of the t
kind, he had hurried forward, Just in I
time to intercept the women. The of- e
a icer at the wheel had stopped and E
a was hurrying back. Mrs. Whitney's a
1. little attempt at escape had failed and
Malloy decided, as soon as he saw me
e still slumbering from the effect of the
e blow that I had received, that he had li
better mike a little trip to the station k
d himself. t
