CHAPTER VI
A HUSH came upon the terrace;
a void of silence as If every
Uvinf thing on the Island could
sea and recognize the danger in
that vicious snub-nosed pistol.
"Put down the gun."
It was BiU Talcott who said It
His voice, too, was unreal. Calm,
with the deep reverberance of a
drum beat It shattered the mo
mentary hypnosis, whipped frayed
nerves. Halsey made a half turn
with fists clenched, and the girl
cried out "Don't!"
MacDowell's glaring eyes sought
Halsey. "He tried to get away
from me," MacDowell snarled.
"Wit" his tricks o' blowin' whistles

won't try to stop them this time.
If you do Injure me. they will
tear you to pieces. They won't
stop. Miss Paterson's disregard of
my order has already aroused
them. The slightest violence will
upset the balance."
"For God's sake, MacDowell!"
Halsey cried hoarsely. "Can't you
tell when a man is speaking the
truth? Your cap pistol wouldn't
amount to peanuts! Put it away!"
The detective hesitated with ill
disguised anger. "Why'd he clip
me?" he demanded. "Why'd he
wait until my head was turned?
You mean to say that whistle an'
her screamin' wasn't no setup?"
June Paterson trembled. "What
ever Mr. Talcott may have done,
the scream was entirely my own

Talcott's eyes were on her, cold
land unapproving. The man
(seemed made of ice and concrete:
runlike the others, no slightest
trace or perspiration showed in
ibis face. No emotion showed there
leither; beyond the faint flash of
mis eyes he was stone.
J She put her hand in Halsey's
and arose from the couch. "Good
aught dear," she said softly and,
(lifting her face, kissed him on the
lips.
That brought a reaction from
Talcott Dull red mounted from
!hia collar to the rims of his eyes.
He seemed as if about to speak,
and then, turning, he strode from

with a startled sense of reali
ity, of emergence from a hazy,
ewlft moving world into one that
was sharply focused and sinister.
It was still nigbt; unobstructed

her unglazed window. Dawn, she
knew, was not far off; soon, with
the swiftness of a drawing shut

was perilously close to the shore.

Jrrom the schooner a crisp,
harsh voice answered, "Light
your pier. We want to land!"
"No light tha pier!" Sebastlen's
yell increased in volume. "Me
know you! We got plenty trou
bles now. You stay away!"
The schooner swung slowly
about wallowing in the trough of
vara. An end to stillness, the
muffled boom of her engines
echoed and she swung in a wide
circle, heading west to the land

cries followed them, and the light
in his hand bobbed crazily with
his running.
A nice hospitable place this Is, I
June Paterson thought If the
schooner could land it would
afford her the opportunity of es

thoroughly frightened now. There

Bill Talcott had once been, he had
become something sinister and
strange. He was someone she did
not know, perhaps had never
known. Whatever his deadly
game with Halsey, S truth era and
