There they meet Mr.

CHAPTER III— Continued
The scrap o f paper was a receipt for
a registered letter, dispatched from
Cape Town, and addressed to the Im ­
perial Banking Corporation o f South
Africa, 600 Lombard street, London.
Maythorne pointed to the date— Jan­
uary 17— on the postmark.
"Nine months since," he remarked.
“How long had Mazaroff been In Eng­
land when you met him at the Cecil 7"
“A few weeks,” I replied. “As fa r
as I know.”
“I know,” said Crole. “H e came to
England in July— about the end of the
month.”
“Then the letter, or packet, or what­
ever It was, to which this receipt re­
fers, was sent off from Cape Town to
the London branch o f this bank some
months before M azaroff came here,"
observed Maythorne. H e turned the
receipt over. “T here’s an Indorse­
ment on the back— letters and a fig­
ure,” he continued. “See? BL. D. 1.
W h at’s that mean, I wonder?”
H e carefully put away the receipt.
“W e'll Just keep the knowledge of
that to ourselves, fo r the present,” he
said. " I f the police come here this
afternoon, as they're pretty sure to,
a fte r that gun business, and want to
examine his effects, let ’em. But I ’ll
keep this scrap of paper co myself—
I w ant to work things up from It.”
The police came to the Woodcock a
little later. They asked a lot o f ques­
tions of Musgrave about his gun, and
of me and of Webster about our move­
ments on the night of the murder, of
Crole about the dead man's identity
and position; of me again about the
money and valuables he was likely to
have on him. And In the course of
their Investigations a fact came out of
which I, until then, had been unaware.
I t turned out that a fte r dinner on the
night of the murder, while I was
busied In w riting some private letters,
Masaroff, who was naturally a sociable
man, had strolled Into the bar-parlor
o f the Woodcock, where a highly di­
versified assemblage had gathered—
farmers, cattle dealers, drovera. Idlers,
all homeward bound from Cloughth-
w alte fair. T here he had made him­
self very agreeable, and had treated
the entire company to drinks and
cigars, which he paid for w ith a five-
pound note, taken, said the barmaid,
from a notecase that seemed to be
pretty full, and In open view o f any­
body and everybody.
This hit of news appeared to give
considerable satisfaction and even re­
lie f to the police officials, and Man­
ners, who lingered behind when his
superiors went away, found It Impos­
sible to refrain from communicating
to me his belief that they were on the
right line of pursuit.
I communicated the police sergeant's
notions to Crole and Maythorne. May­
thorne seemed to understand Man­
sers' standpoint

he remarked. “A sensible one, too.

“ W ith Musgrave's gun?'* I asked.

“T hat would presuppose a knowl­
edge that the gun was there," re­
marked Crole.
“ Prerisely,"

Maythorne.
“T here were no doubt local characters

“You doubt It?” I asked.

smile.
“I f you really w ant to know," he re­
plied, “I neither doubt It nor agree

Was M azaroff murdered as
Masaroff, an unknown man here, or

“A h !” muttered Crole. “M y ques­
tion I”
Crole turned to the coroner,
“Numerous witnesses can prove that
the unfortunate gentleman Into whose
death you are Inquiring had such a
cast— a squint— In his le ft eye, sir,"
he remarked. “H e also had a birth­

“T here need be no doubt about lt t "

spectators
“T he man was Andrew

I knew whose voice that was before
I looked round. Old M r. Hassendeane,
whom I had noticed when Crole and
I entered the room, had risen from
his seat, and was smiling lnform lngly
at the coroner.
“M rs Elphlnstone can’t be positive,

“ Where did you see this man, M r.

oner.
“I saw him the night on which he

old gentleman. “I t was In Birnslde

CHAPTER IV
The York Solicitor
The Inquest wao duly opened next
morning. Crole, as a solicitor whom
he had employed In London, and I,
as his traveling companion. Identified
the dead man as Salim Mazaroff, and
told what we knew about h im : Eccle-
share and the local doctor testified as
to the cause o f his death: the men
who had found the body at Reiver’s
den gave evidence as to the circum­
stances under which they came across
It. A t this stage an interruption came
through the entrance o f M r. and Mrs.
Rlphlnstone and Sheila, w ith whom
appeared an elderly man of profes­
sional bearing; Manners, by whom I
was sitting, whispered to me that this
was M r. Wetherby, Mrs. Elphlnstone’s
lawyer.
Wetherby lost no tim e In letting
the authorities know why he and his
party were there.
H e said, addressing the coroner, “I
wish to make an application to you
on behalf of my client, Mrs. Elphln-
stone, of M arrasdale tower. T o sup­
port It, I shall have— very briefly— to
refer to some past history.
Mrs.
Elphlnstone, as Miss Jean Linton, was
married, some twenty-three o r four
years ago, to a M r. Andrew Merchlson,
who form erly had some connection
w ith this neighborhood. The m arriage
was not a success, and to put matters
plainly, Merchlson, w ithin a compar­
atively short time and a fte r making
due provision for his wife, deserted
her, and, It was believed, went off to
the East. Eight months a fte r he had
gone, Mrs. Merchlson had a daughter
— the young lady whom you now see
here. Miss Sheila Merchlson. M erchl­
son was never heard of again until
some years later, when Mrs. M erchl­
son received news that he had been
drowned off Mombasa, on the East
African coast, while on a voyage from
Bombay to Durban. From that time
forward Mrs. Merchlson believed her­
self a widow, and In due course she
married again, and became Mrs.
Elphlnstone. Now I come to the cause
and reason of my application. Yester­
day, Mrs. Elphlnstone was visited by
two gentlemen now present, who have,
I understand, Just given evidence—
Mr. .Holt and M r. Crole. On the invi­
tation of M r. Crole, M r. H o lt In­
formed Mrs. Elphlnstone that on the
second evening a fte r he and M r. Masa­
roff arrived here at the Woodcock,
Mr. M azaroff told him that though he
had a perfect right to the name he
was now known by, having legally
adopted It some years ago, he was In
reality the Andrew Merchlson who
had married Miss Jean Linton, and
had left her. I need hardly say, sir,
that this Is a very serious matter for
my client, and I think It w ill be well
for all parties If Mrs. Elphlnstone Is
allowed to view the body of tills dead
man. In order that she may see I f she
can recognise It as that o f Andrew
Merchlson.”
“T h a t seems, obviously, the very
thing to do," agreed the coroner.
“ Perhaps
you’ll
accompany
your
client. Mr. Wetherby?”
There was considerable hushed ex­
citement In that room during the ab­
sence o f Mrs. Elphlnstone and her
solicitor.
Some of the older folk
amongst the spectators whispered—
the name Merchlson had evidently
roused sleeping memorise.
When Mrs. Elphlnstone, followed by
Wetherby, reappeared, at the coroner's
suggestion, she went Into the wltnees
box and gave evidence. It compressed

Just then a policeman opened the
door o f the room, ushering In a young,

and glanced inquiringly a t him.
The newcomer pulled out a card-
case and, advancing to the head of the
table, whispered a few words In the
coroner's ear. I saw a look o f some­
thing between surprise and perplexity
cross the coroner's face.
“W e seem to be dealing w ith a
strangely mysterious matter, quite
apart from the death," he remarked.
“This gentleman”— he glanced at the
card— “M r.

he saw accounts of this case in the
papers yesterday, and bas hurried here

M r. Postlethwaite form ally described
himself as a solicitor. H e produced a
diary, and exhibited an entry which
recorded a call from M r. Salim Maza­
roff.
“M r. Mazaroff," he continued, “who
