and I found myself looking Into the
eyes of my Just-dlstnlssod detective.
It would bo hard to say 'which of the
two of us, the man or myself, was the
more flabbergasted by the situation.
As for me, I was too astonished to ut

of the, dumb-waiter had drowned what

Icepick, and hearing not a sound in the
kitchen while ho listened before try

enough to get In, for his waist was be
low the level of the sill I bounced
back into the hnll, slamming the kitch
en door after mo and locking It. In
two seconds moro I had, up the chain
bolt and hnd warned monsieur of dan
ger and to keep absolutely still; and
nil this while Sir. Detective Mnn was
scrambling into the kitchen.
He gnve a wrench on the door han
dle, expecting to find me trying to
tang on to the other side and found
the door locked.
"Dlable!" I heard hlra say, low un
der his brcnth.
Monsieur had tiptoed to a place be
side me, and though white ns a sheet,
conducted himself admirably. I had,
by framing tho words with my lips,
made him understand that the man
who had Just broken In through the
dumb-waiter shaft was the detective
I had dismissed at tho front door not
fifteen minutes ago.
By signs I then communicated to
monsieur the suggestion that now wns
his chance to escapo by the front door
while I held his pursuer In tho kitchen.
Monsieur disagreed with me, flntly,
and by signs Informed mo thnt there

the outer hall to nab him the Instant

reasonable and likely and I had no
rneanu of disproving the contention.
I thcreforo made tho next movo on
"Hello, mister," I called through the
door at hlra. "You may as well go
out tho way you carao In, for you'vo
tot as far as you'll get Into this flat."
"Madam'.', listen," he returned. "On
My ward of honor I mean you no harm
-I wish only to speak wltlAyou, pri
vately and Immediately."
"Your method of obtaining private
Interviews is most inviting also con
vincing of the truth of what you say."
"You left mo no alternative I am
tbllged to see you."
The truth Hashed Into me that he'd
ilrendy traced monsieur to my flat
ind Uie -determination to sec mo was
tnly an uxcuso to lay hold on 1dm:
.nd at tho same moment monsieur
ouched mo on tho shoulder and by
ilgns communicated tho same fear,
mdlng with a pantomimic appeal to
uo to save him.
"Mr. Smith." i called through the
loor again, "you asked for n private

He said something thnt I didn't

to regret it. On my word of honor, I
assure you that no hnrm shnll come to

"Thanks for your kind assurance
and I won't unlock the door."
"Madame, I beg of you to listen to
"Mr. Jones, If you are not out of
there In two minutes, I shall telephone
for tho police."
"If you do not unlock this door In
two seconds I shall break It In."
He waited two seconds; then tnk
lng the tool with which ho had pried
open tho dumb-waiter door, ho started
to Jimmy open the kitchen door.
"Stopl" I commanded.
Ho stopped evidently thinking J
meant to unlock the door.
"It won't do you one particle of good
to Jimmy this door open," I began,
"because I have a chain-bolt on here
tho same ns on the front door. Listen
" and I rattled tho chain ngalnst
tho woodwork. "Do you hear that?
Well, that means that before you can
get through that door, you'll have to
tako It off Its hinges and you can't
very well do thnt, because It opens In
on your side. Is thnt clear to you?
Look nt the hinges. If It Isn't."
I heard hlra say "DIable" again,
fiercely but. softly, and then tread
quietly along the floor nnd push the
catch on the window.
I flew to my bedroom, nnd seizing
tho revolver Billy had brought me, I
threw up the window at right angles
to the kitchen window nnd Just ns he
was about to step on to the fire-escape
and try the bathroom window, I
shouted, "Hold on, therol" and alined
the revolver at his head.
He ducked back In a hurry,, peeking
at me from tehlnd the window-frame.
"There's no uso In your trying the
bathroom window," said I. "It's nailed
down, and before you could break, the
glass and get in, I'd have shot jou
dead. Go back to the kitchen door I
have something to say to you."
He did as I told him, and I returned
to my side of the door, revolver In

"Yes, madome, I shall do so Immedi

"Certainly, madame. But before you

Monsieur's hand flew up ns he heard

made no sound.
"Have you a warrant for my arrest

"No, madame and I would not trou

I heard hlra scrambling onto tho

"It's your only chnnco to save your

I whispered ns n pnrtlng warning, nnd
he began his descent.
At that moment I caught the sound
of the elevator coming up It might or
might not be the detective, but I took
no risks. Leaving tho dumb waiter
door Just as the Unknown had left it
I slipped softly to the kitchen door,
closed nnd locked it and put up the
chain-bolt again. To the ensual eye
the kitchen was as it had been five
minutes before, untouched, unopened.
As I stepped into the dining room
the front bell rang long and loud.
I let it ring and ring again, nnd
heard n voice, "Yes she's there."
Tho fourth ring was followed by the
pounding of a heavy hand.
I had been listening to the dumb
waiter and It hnd now stopped. I
thought It safe to make a move on my
side, so I walked noisily along the hall
and called through tho door, "Who's

"Oh, It's youl" I exclaimed nffnbly,
addressing tho officer and taking no
notice of tho detective.
"If ye'll open tho door" he sug
gested very politely.
"With pleasure," nnd I took off the
chntn-bolt and threw the door wide
"Step In," said I. "Now, ofllcer.
what Is tho trouble?"
"Well, you sec, this gentleman here
believes you're hiding a party he's
got a wart ant for."
"Help j ourselves," said I curtly,
moving aside to let them pass.
The Unknown darted along tho din
ing room; the ofllcer followed; I
brought up the rear. A glance showed
that both the dining room and my
study opening into it wcro empty.
Ho went back to the bedroom cast
ing n glance at tho kitchen door ns he
passed, which was chain-bolted as I'd
told hlra it was and looked under
tho bed. After that he peered into the
bathroom and returned for a flnnl sur

ing tho kitchen door. As he threw it
open tho first thing thnt caught his eye
was the dumb-waiter door, gaping
wide the way he'd left It, and as, he
stepped across tho threshold I shot off
at him, "I hid' your roan In the refrig

And he pulled open tho refrigerator
