The visitor, groping, brushed

Across the lront of the cabinet
: was a strip of white paper labeled
in handwriting, each letter being
individual, with what looked to
the young man like the word
"MERCY." He stooped to re
place the bag.
"Do not touch it," ordered the
voice peremptorily.

After a pause of consideration
the voice spoke again.
"You are right. Since I can not

courtesy for having put you to
this trouble. You will observe
that 1 am not very presentable."
The aide door swung open. In
the dimness of the half-disclosed
apartment Average Jones saw a
man huddled in a chair. He wore
a black skull cap. So fa* as Ident
ification went he was safe. His
whole face was grotesquely blotch
ed and wollen. So, also, were the
hands which rested on his knees.
j "You will pardon me," said Av
erage Jones, "but I am by nature
cautious. You have touched me.
Is it contagious?'.'
A contortion of the features,
probably indicating a smile, made
the changeling face more hideous
than before.
