At the Foot of the Stairs.
As I drove rapidly up to the house
from Casanova station In the hack , I
saw the detective Burns loitering
across the street from the Walker
placo. So Jamloson w is putting the
BcrewH on lightly now , but ready to
give them a twist or two , I felt cer
tain , very soon.
! ' The house was quiet. Two steps off
f- the circular staircase had been pried
off without result , and beyond u second
end message from Gertrude that Hal-
soy Insisted on coming home and they
would arrive that night there wns
nothing new. Mr. Jnmleson , having
failed to locate the secret room , had
cone to the vlllngo , I learned after
wards that ho called at Dr. Walker's ,
under pretense of nn attack of acute
indigestion , and before ho left had In
quired about the evening trains to the
city. Ho said ho hnd wasted a lot
of tlmo on the case , and a good bit of
the mystery was In my imagination !
The doctor wns under the Impression
that the house was guarded day and
night. "Well , give a place a reputation
like that , and you don't need a guard
at all thus Jnmleson. And sure
enough , late in the afternoon , the two
private detectives , accompanied by
Mr. Jamloson , walked down the main
street of Casanova and took a city-
That they got off at the next station
nnd walked back again to Sunnyside
at dusk wns not known at the time.
Personally , I know nothing of cither
move ; I had ether things to absorb
mo at that time.
Llddy brought me some tea while 1
rested after my trip , nnd on the tray
was a small book from the Casanova
library. It was called "The Unseen
World" and had a cheerful cover , on
which a half-dozen sheeted figures
linked hands around a headstone.
At this point in my story , Halsoy
always says : "Trust a woman to add
two and two together , and make six. "
To which I retort that if two and two
plus X makes nix , then to discover the
unknown quantity is the simplest
thing In the world. That n houseful
of detectives missed it entirely was
because they wcro busy trying to
yrovo that two and two make four.
The depression due to my visit to
the hospital loft mo at the prospect of
Boeing Ilalsoy again that night. It
was about flvo o'clock when Llddy
left mo for a nap before dinner , hav
ing put mo into a gray silk dressing-
gown and a pair of slippers. I listened
to her retreating footsteps , and as
Boon as she wna safely below stairs
I wont up to the trunkroom , The
place had not been disturbed , and I
proceeded at once to try to discover
the entrance to the hidden room. The
openings on cither side , as I have
said , showed nothing but perhaps
three feet of brick wall. There was
no sign of an entrance no levers , no
hinges , to give a hint. Either the
mantel or the roof , I decided , and aft
er a half-hour at the mantel , produc
tive of absolutely no result , I decided
to try U > o roof.
I are not fond of a height. The few
occasions on which I have cllmbpd a
step-ladder have always left mo dizzy
and weak in the knees. The top of
the Washington monument is as Im
possible to mo as the elevation to the
presidential chair. And yet I
climbed out on the Sunnyside roof
without a second's hesitation. Like
a dog on a scent , like my bear-skin
progenitor , with his spear and his
wild boar , to mo now there was the
lust of the chase , the frenzy of pur-
cult , the dust of battle. I got quite a
little of the latter on mo as I climbed
from the unfinished ballroom out
through a window to the roof of the
east wing of the building , which was
only two stories in height.
Once out there , access to the top of
the- main building was rendered easy
j at least It looked easy by a small
vertical Iron ladder , fastened to the
wall ont < mle of the ballroom , and per-
hapa 12 foot high. The 12 feet looked
short from below , but they were dif
ficult to climb. 1 gathered my silk
gown around mo , and succeeded final
ly in making the top of the ladder.
Once there , however , I was complete
ly out of breath. I sat down , my feet
on the top rung , and put my hnlr-plns
In more securely , whllo the wind bel
lowed my dressing-gown out like a
sail. I had torn a great strip of the
silk loose , and now I ruthlessly fin
ished the destruction of my gown by
Jerking It free nnd tying It around my
Luckily , the roof was flat , and I
was able to go over every Inch of It. But
the result was disappointing ; noHrnp-
door revealed itself , no glass window ;
nothing but a couple of pipes two
Inches across , and standing perhaps
18 inches high and three feet apart ,
with a cap to prevent rain from en
tering and raised to permit the pas
sage of air. 1 picket ! tip a pebble
from the roof and dropped It down ,
listening with my car at one of the
pipes. I could hear It strike on some
thing with a sharp , metallic sound ,
but It was Impossible for me to toll
how far It had gone.
I gave up finally nnd went down the
ladder again , getting in through the
ballroom window without being ob
served. I went back at once to the
trunkroom , and , sitting down on a
box , gave my mind , as consistently as
I could , ( o the problem before mo. If
the pipes in the roof were ventilators
to the secret room , and there was no
trap-door above , the entrance was
probably in ono of the two rooms be
tween which it lay unless , Indeed ,
the room had been built , and the openIng -
Ing closed with a brick and mortar
The mantel fascinated me. Made of
wood and carved , the more I looked
the more I wondered that I had not
noticed before the absurdity of such
a mantel In such a place. It was cov
ered with scrolls and panels , and fin
ally , by the merest accident , I pushed
one of the panels at the side. It
moved easily , revealing a small brass
It is not necessary to detail the
fluctuations of hope and despair , and
not a little fear of what lay beyond-
with which I twisted and turned the
knob. It moved , but nothing seemed
to happen , and then I discovered the
trouble. I pushed the knob vigorous
ly to one side , and the whole mantel
swung loose from the wall almost a
foot , revealing a cavernous space be
I took a long breath , cloned the
door from the trunkroom Into the hall
thank heaven , I did not lock It and
pulling the mantel-door wide open , I
stopped Into the chlriiney-room. I had
tlmo to get a hazy view of a small
portable safe , a common wooden table
and a chair then the mantel door
swung to , and clicked behind mo. I
Htood quite still for a moment , In the
darkness , unable to comprehend what
had happened.Then I turned and beat
furiously at the door with my fists.
It was closed and locked again , and
my lingers In the darkness slid over a
smooth wooden surface without a sign
of a knob.
I was furiously angry at myself , at
the mn'ntel-door. at everything. I did
not fear suffocation ; before the
thought had come to me I had already
seen a gleam of light from the two
mnnll ventilating pipes In the roof.
They supplied air , but nothing else.
The room Itself was -shrouded In
I must have dozed off. I am sure
I did not faint. I was never more
composed in my life. I romcmbct
planning , If 1 were not discovered ,
who would have my things. I know
Llddy would want my heliotrope pop
lin , nnd she's a fright In lavender.
Once or twice I heard mice in the par
titions , and so I sat on the table , with
my feet on the chair. I Imagined I
could hoar the search going on
through the house , and once some
one came into the trunkroom ; I could
distinctly hear footsteps.
"In the chimney ! In the chimney ! "
I called with all my might , nnd was
rewarded by a piercing shriek from
Llddy nnd the slam of the trunkroom
I felt easier after that , although the
room was oppressively hot and
cnc-rvatlng. I had no doubt the search
for me would now come In the right
direction , and after a little , I dropped
Into a doze. How long I slept I do
It must have been several hours ,
for I had been tired from a busy day ,
and I waked stiff from my awkward
position I could not remember
where I was for a few minutes , and
my head felt heavy and congested.
Gradually I roused to my surround
ings , and to the fact that in spite of
ventilators , the air was bad nnd grow
ing worse. I was breathing long ,
gasping respirations , and my face was
damp and clammy. I must have been
there a long time , nnd the searchers
were probably hunting outside the
house , dredging the creek , or beating
the woodland. I knew that another
hour or two would find mo uncon
scious , nnd with my Inability to cry
out would go my only chance of res
cue. It was the combination of bad air
and heat , probably , for some inade
quate ventilation was coming through
the pipes. I tried to retain my con
sciousness by walking the length of
the room nnd back , over and over , but
I had not the strength to keep It up ,
so I sat down on the table again , my
buck against the wall.
The house was very still. Once my
straining cars seemed to catch a foot
fall beneath me , possibly In my own
room. I groped for the chair from
the table , and pounded with It frantic
ally on the floor. But nothing .hap
pened ; I realized bitterly that If the
sound was heard at all , no doubt it
was classed with the other rapplngs
that had so alarmed us recently.
And then I heard sounds from be
low me , In the house. There was a
peculiar throbbing , vibrating noise
that I felt rather than heard , much
like the pulsing beat of fire engines In
the city. For one awful moment I
thought the house was on fire , and
every drop of blood In my body gath
ered around my heart ; then I knew. It
was the engine of the automobile , and
Ilalsoy had come back. Hope sprang
up afresh. Ilalsey's clear head and
Gertrude's Intuition might do what
Liddy's hysteria nnd three detectives
had failed in.
After a time I thought I had been
right. There was certainly something
going on down below ; doors were
slamming , people were hurrying
through the halls , and certain high
notes of excited voices penetrated to
me shrilly. I hoped they wcro coming
closer , but after a time the sounds
died away below , and I was left to the
silence and heat , to the weight of the
darkness , to the oppression of walls
that seemed to close in on me and
The llrst warning I had was a
stealthy fumbling at the lock of the
mantel-door. With my mouth open
to scream , I stopped. Perhaps the sit
uation had rendered me acute , per
haps It w.as instinctive. Whatever It
was , I sat without moving , and someone
ono outside , In absolute stillness , ran
his lingers over tlio carving of the
No Trap-Door Revealed Itself.

Now the sounds below redoubled ;

The dopr into the trunkroom had
been locked from the inside. At the
second that It gave , opening ngalnst
the wall with a crash and evidently
tumbling somebody Into the room , the
stealthy fingers beyond the mantel-
door gave the knob the proper im
petus , and the door swung open , and
closed again. Only nnd Liddy al
ways screams nnd puts her fingers In
hnr ears at this point only now 1
was not alone in tlio chimney room.
There was some ono else in the dark
ness , some one who breathed hard ,
and who was so close I could have
touched him with my hand.
I was in a paralysis of terror. Out
side there were excited voices and In
credulous oaths. The trunks were
being Jerked around in a frantic
srarch , the windows were thrown
open , only to show a sheer drop of 40
feet. And the man in the room with
me leaned against the mantel-door
nnd listened. His pursuers wore plain
ly battled ; I heard him draw a long
breath , and turn to grope his way
through the blackness. Then he
touched my hand , cold , clammy , death
A hand in an empty room ! He drew
in his breath , the sharp intaklng of
horror that fills lungs suddenly col
lapsed. Beyond Jerking his hand away
Instantly , he made no movement. I
think absolute terror had him by the
throat. Then he stepped back , with
out turning , retreating foot by foot
from The Dread in the corner , and I
do not think he breathed.
Then , with the relief of space be
tween us , I screamed , ear-spllttlngly ,
madly , and they heard me outside.
"In the chimney ! " I shrieked. "Be
hind the mantel ! The mantel ! "
With an oath the figure hurled Itself
across the room at me , and I
screamed again. In his blind fury he
had missed me ; I heard him strike
the wall. That ono time I eluded
him ; I was across the room , and I had
got the chair. He stood for a second ,
listening , then he made another rush
and I struck out with my weapon. I
think it stunned him , for I had a sec
ond's respite when I could hear him
breathing , and some one shouted cut-
"We can't get In. How does it
open ? "
But the man in the room had
changed his tactics. I knew he was
creeping on me , Inch by Inch , nnd I
could not tell from where. And then
he caught me. Ho hold his hand
over my mouth , and I bit him. I was
lelpless , strangling and some one
was trying to break in the mantel
from outside. It began to yield some
where , for a thin wedge of yellowish
light was reflected on the opposite
wall. When he saw tha't , my assailant
dropped me with a curse ; then the
opposite wall swung open noiselessly ,
closed again without a sound , and I
was alone. The Intruder was gone.
"In the next room ! " I called wildly.
"The next room ! " But the sound of
blows , on the mantel drowned my
voice. By the tlmo I had made them
understand , a couple of minutes had
elapsed. The pursuit was taken up
then , by all except Alex , who was de
termined to liberate me. When I
stepped out into the trunkroom a free
woman again I could hear the chase
I must say , for all Alex's anxiety to
set me free , he paid little enough at
tention to my plight. He Jumped
through the opening into the secret
room nnd picked up the portable safe.
"I am going to put this in Mr. Hal-
sey's room , Miss Innes , " he said , "and
I shall send one of the detectives to
guard it. "
I hardly heard him. I wanted to
laugh and cry In the same breath
to crawl into bed and have n cup of
tea , nnd scold Llddy , nnd do any of
the thousand natural things that I had
never expected to do again. And the
air ! The touch of the cool night air
on my face !
