the door Mean rushed by like a
bull at a cloak and sped headlong
over to that ragged black square
yawning in the gray iron wall.
"If you're going to pry apart

like acid into the silence, "I sug

tear on the fingernails."
Mears, his heavy features flush-

look and then followed his advice.
His blue jersied shoulders bunched
with effort; once, twice and then
a dry crackling noise split the
tense stillness- Something clat

square space perhaps six inches
by four. He stood inside the cabin
door erect as a guardsman with
arms negligently folded, but none
the less effectively hiding the Colt
ready in his right hand. He was
experiencing the same sensations
as might a person on a swing just
before the swing starts its down
ward plunge. His hard blue eyes
narrowed when Mears' tattooed
right hand darted into the hole
like a rabbit into its burrow. He
groped about an instant and then
the huge watchman fell to cursing
with such a violence that Colby
feared he would become berserk.
"It it ain't there!" he raved.

Mean, his shadow gigantic be

the square, battle-scared figure.
"You're a smart guy and a
nervy one," he drawled, a very
puzzled expression on his wind
burned features. "And if I hadn't
seen that hunk of steel come out
myself I wouldn't trust you."
"Can the hooey, Mears, and let's
get rolling," Colby snapped and
slid his Colt smoothly into his coat
pocket. Then he caught up one
of the lanterns.

It was a nervous and rather
frightened Geneva Benet they
found pacing up and down the deck
just outside that landing on which
Connolly and Graus lay so patient-1
ly awaiting attention.
"Oh thank God you're safe," she
cried as she breathlessly clutched
Colby's hand. "What s happened?"
Colby told her in a few sentences,
and as tactfully as he might he
broke the bad news concerning the
jewelry and the empty cache. To
his astonishment she seemed to be
badly shaken but not particularly
crushed by this shrewd blow of mis

"Sure," Mears nodded but shot
the girl a swift questioning look
that caught and held Colby's inter
est. "Sure, 111 go-"
"Thank you." Geneva Benet
sank listlessly onto a deadlight.

Mears demanded of Colby.

in the bleached Old rigging.

the raw gloom, his powerful head
bent into the wind. In silence the
two watched him cross the gang

"And now?" Colby was oblique
ly eyeing his companion.
"And now that that's that?" the
girl countered, her despairing
weariness abruptly vanished.
"You've been thinking about the
third maiden," Colby stated and
looked fixedly over the broad moon
silvered Patuxent where the wind
chased shimmering catspaws up
the channel. "A maiden neither
white, nor yellow, nor red."
"What makes you think so?" she

I'm not such a fool as to think
you'd quit now after having gone
through so much. That sentence
of Vogel's meant something to
you. I ve also been thinking a
lot about it the last quarter of
an hour. You see there's some
thing queer about all this busi

of the original partners and know

expense, run a lot of risks and
waste all his time on an empty

the first class salon door. "'But

nor red, nor yellow ?"

hard lips puned themselves, be

eagerly. "Yes, I think so, too.

a door opening off the smoking
room through which Colby had
stalked the dying Connolly.

spent twelve millions of its own

Mr. Ball pointed out that many
people yet did not believe there
was a rubber shortage. The aver

he is not going to get some sort
